Where perspective altering views meets pure living, deep sleeps and hammock relaxation. It's a private apartment nestled among pines and palms on the side of a mountain with epic and unobstructed views of the sunrise & sunset. Welcome to paradise.

The space

The Hideout On Lake Atitlan is a 2 room studio apartment. The indoor living space is around (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN), and the outdoor porch and garden is around (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). The bedroom features a comfortable new double bed, cable tv with 30+ english channels including HBO, NBC 4, History, TV5 Monde, RAI, DW and many more. Both the bedroom and kitchen/dinning room features almost floor to cieling windows with epic views of both the sunrise and sunset over the lake (even from bed).

The kitchen/dinning room has a full sized fridge, 4 burner stove, fresh water dispenser, and aside from an oven, all the amenities needed to cook up whatever you want.

You'll have access to and are welcome to use our spices, Chia seeds, Oil's, Japanese cooking essentials, and anything else you find in the pantry.

Please note that the electric shower is very fickle and best you can get from it is a slow stream of warm/semi hot water.

Finally, there's also a semi-enclosed porch area and garden lit by christmas lights. It's the perfect place for eating breakfast, getting inspired, relaxing in the hammock and being productive.

Guest access

The Hideout On Lake Atitlan features access to a dedicated beach on the lake, a hammock in a private garden porch, and the mirador, a massive 2 level lookout with unobstructed views of the most beautiful sunset in the world.

Interaction with guests

I generally live next door from October to March, and will do all that I can to make your stay as comfortable, relaxing and sublime as possible. If I happen to be back home in New York, my wonderful bilingual American expat neighbors John & Joli are just 40 feet away should you need anything.

Other things to note

Whether you're trying to detox or simply want to get healthy, my nutritionist neighbors offer everything from personalized food to training for considerably less than anything anywhere else. Inquire for more info!

Unfortunately the property manager (not the host) made a mistake and gave us the wrong property and although Leif did his best to resolve the problem, we had already moved to somewhere else so can't really review the property but the view was great.

The apartment is in a relatively secluded and naturally beautiful vista with great views of the lake and volcanoes. Leif was always super quick and easy to communicate with.

Leif was a great and attentive host. He was away at the time we stayed at his home but he arranged for a friend to meet us and show us around. He also recommended great places for coffee and food in town. He was quick to answer messages and made our stay at his place enjoyable.

Leif was always responsive and as we arrived during the nite we did not expect to have such a great view when we open the curtains in the morning, it was amazing. The place is safe, great mirador and Miguel the responsible of the apartments was always kind. It is the best place to be in Panajachel, very recomendable.

Leifs Hideout was great! Nice location a bit out of town, which makes for a tranquil experience. Still, Panajachel is only a couple of minutes away by tuk tuk. Beautiful views, all the basic necessities were provided. I would highly reccommend Leifs hideout!

My name is Leif and I'm originally from New York. Over the past 8 years I've traveled to and written about over 80 countries on my blog The Runaway Guide. In all my traveles I've never found a place more beuatiful, peaceful, welcoming or budget friendly than Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. As a result I spend at least 3 months a year here. I write, enjoy my nutritionist neighbors healthy meals, excercise and get back to the simple life.
