Get away from it all while drinking in the Mayan character of this very special property. Quiet and secluded, yet just minutes away from civilization, this is a tranquil spot to recharge.

The place is absolutely magical. The house is very cozy and the view of the lake, garden and volcanoes is unlike anything else. Cynthia made our stay very comfortable and helped with everything. It was peaceful, safe and clean. And Shadow, the dog, was just the cherry on top.

Cynthia's lake house is breathtaking! The views leave you in awe. The pictures are just like what you see in person which is nice. Both bedrooms are the same size and share the balcony on top and share a bathroom upstairs. Lots of June bugs come in even though the doors are close…

Response from Cynthia:
Thanks for the appreciative words, Sasha. And, just to address the issues you raised: Bugs don't come into the house at night if the lights are turned off in rooms and places you aren't using. If you leave them on after dark, then yes, the bugs will be attracted. Re: mosquitoes. You can be almost bugfree if lights are off outside. I didn't fill the pool for you because the schedule you had planned was very full and all the activities were off the property. As well, the weather was cooler than normal and most guests don't use the pool when it's like that. If any guests know they want to use the pool, please just let us know. We will fill it for you. Also, you were here for a time of very unusual weather for us...a cooler, cloudy spell. It's back to normal now with bright clear sunny days. Unfortunate timing. And regarding setting prices for trips. Although I wasn't on the property, I am totally willing and capable of arranging your boat trips and getting the best pricing for them if you like. You just needed to call me and I would have been happy to do that for you. I usually do that for guests. But you need to let me know. And finally, about the 9 to 5 limit on boat transportation on the Lake. It's just the way it is because the Mayans appreciate their family time and have a tradition of being together for dinner.
