Perched on a point 150 feet above the water, our cliff-side home enjoys a PANORAMIC view of the lake and its 3 volcanoes. The three acre property is covered with lush vegetation and has numerous areas to sit back and relax, watch the boats pass by and the sun rise AND set.

The space
Accessible only by boat to our private dock or a 15 minute walk via foot path from Santa Cruz or Jaibalito, this 1,000 square foot (100 square meter) apartment is the lower level of a duplex home, surrounded by 3 acres of terraced gardens.

The uniquely designed space has a bright and airy floor plan, with 2 built-in king-sized beds (plus a single), a fireplace, a lounge area which doubles as additional sleeping space (best for kids), a fully-equipped kitchen, a full bath featuring a two-person soaking tub, a dining area, and a 10 meter-long patio with a day bed, hammock and sitting area. Of course, all rooms have spectacular views of the lake and the majestic volcanoes for which Lake Atitlan is known.

Experience the beauty and serenity of the lake from a vantage point unmatched by any other waterfront property on the north shore. This is a place for those seeking amazing views, lake access, nice hikes (short or long), and tranquility.

Where you’ll be

Sta. Cruz La Laguna, Sololá, Guatemala

Our home is located on the mountainside along the footpath between the charming Mayan villages of Santa Cruz la Laguna and Jaibalito (15-20 min walk to either) -- the only two towns on the lake without car access. Visitors who discover this part of the lake at the end of their trip often lament they didn't discover it sooner.

This is the quintessential lake-living experience for those who want to get off the beaten path and away from the tourist traps of Panajachel, San Marcos and San Pedro (not to mention the firecrackers and loud music), and immerse themselves in tranquil highland Guatemalan life -- while still being just a 20 minute taxi-boat ride away from "the action."

Jaibalito remains a very indigenous town, where the local language, Kaqchikel, is spoken before Spanish. There is a small, eclectic expat community in the town which is centered around the Posada Jaibalito--a must-visit spot for cheap, good food and interesting conversation.

Santa Cruz's charm lies in the paved walkways winding through lovely homes and a long walkable waterfront. Rent a kayak or paddle board or even go scuba diving. Be sure to go up to the village to take in the incredible view (and a meal or drink) from CECAP, which is run by a US-based non-profit that does great work in the community.
