Guest access

Please, NO checking in after 7 pm! If you are running late you must call Miguel.

- Plan to visit other great towns around the lake early in the morning. The lake can get rough in the late afternoon.

- Small trucks are available to ride into Panajachel with other locals for very little money.
- Tuck-tusk are another way to move around.
- Public boats run during the daytime from the main towns around the lake.

When my family and I arrived to this house we literally thought we were at the wrong place. This house is, by far, the BEST airbnb home i have ever stayed at. We were in awe everyday over the magnificent views! Silvia has left any possible thing you made need. We traveled with children so the house set up was amazing. The adults could hang out in one house, while the children played games in the other. Miguel was most helpful as well. Definitely visiting this amazing home again!

This home is magnificent. Better than the pictures! The hosts were kind thoughtful and wonderful. The only thing that I would say is to be sure you know Spanish. Miguel and his family are amazing people and hard workers. But communication hard if you don't speak Spanish. We were lucky to have a native speaker with us! Really love this home

We stayed at the house with family for a couple nights during Memorial weekend. The house had everything we could want and more. The housekeepers were very pleasant and willing to help with meals. The house is located in a quiet area were you can enjoy the view and hear the birds.

"Under the stars" is a perfect choice to stay at Lake Atitlan. It will host many people. We had a party of 12 and never felt we were too crowded. The kitchen/living room is a dream. It had a huge table that easily accommodated 12. The home is very clean and well taken care of. The property care takers were very kind and accommodating and pleasant to associate with. I would recommend this place to all. The pictures just don't show the size and architecture of this beautiful home.

Silvia's place was an incredible spot to spend the week relaxing on the lake and exploring the nearby villages. Miguel and staff were friendly and helped us with whatever we needed. I would recommend this magical spot to anyone and everyone!
