Exclusive artist's loft transformed to the living area offers an unparalleled combination of fully-furnished space, luxury finish, location, and total privacy. With its own beach/road access well hidden among the pine trees just 1 mile from S.Marcos.
This beautiful modern house has just been built by a Czech/American glass artist and his wife, who have transformed this and many other properties into a beautiful, charming homes. They designed the house and created almost everything themselves, from the art on the walls to the furniture and the landscaped garden. There are many outdoor spaces to relax, including a beautiful sun terrace and a private patio in the garden for BBQ.
The property features a flexible open-plan living space with a bedroom that has an orthopedic king-size mattress and a separate entrance to the wooden deck. The bedroom opens onto the living space through a large "barn" sliding door.
The living room is situated between the well equipped gourmet kitchen and the bedroom and is furnished with two comfortable reclining queen size sofas and hammock and can be used as a second bedroom. The home comfortably accommodates 3-4 people.
Each of the rooms have access to the wooden deck overlooking the lake and the volcanoes. Either open the large sliding doors between the rooms, creating one large loft-like space of 1506.82 square feet or 148 m2 or close the barn doors for privacy.
The house is conveniently located within a lovely (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) square feet, private garden and just 100m /328 feet from the lake shore in a very quiet and safe setting. It is a 20 minute walk to the village of San Marcos and has its own dock from which you can catch a public boat every 20 minutes. Restaurants and shops are within an easy walk, short tuk-tuk or boat ride. You can also dine in our home kitchen restaurant.
Guests have access to our entire garden ( except our main house) and private dock with sitting, sun-bathing, and swimming area. There is free wi-fi and the use of a kayak. We have a many books in different languages, board games, and more than 500 movies--if you bring your computer & USB, we are happy to share. High quality bed linens and towels are included.

Interaction with guests
As much as needed for suggestions or help :) but we completely respect our guests' privacy.
We suggest to our guests arriving to Guatemala City Airport to book a morning flight (before 12noon), to ensure a comfortable arrival to our property, as the shuttle direct to Panajachel takes approximately 3 hours, and the ultimate public boat leaving from Panajachel to our home at 19:30hrs, and if there are any road traffic delays, then guests would not arrive until nighttime, if taking an afternoon flight. Also, we suggest that our guests book, late afternoon departure flights from Guatemala City, due to the transportation times, to ensure that guests don't feel the need to rush their stay at the lake.
