This is a place for romantics and adventures seeking rest, reflection and inspiration. Lake Atitlan, surrounded by volcanoes, is often called the most beautiful lake in the world. The lake views as well as the mountain views from this 2-story house are nothing short of spectacular. There are 3 bedrooms, a beautiful stone bathroom, a modern kitchen, living room with a fireplace and 2 amazing porches.
This house is situated in a large, well-maintained, private fantasy garden just 5 minute’s walk to the lakeshore and 15 minutes walk up the mountain to the village of Santa Cruz la Laguna. The only access to this property is by boat. There are restaurants, bars & hotels nearby as well as internet access (10 minutes walk). Take advantage of, scuba diving, yoga, Spanish lessons, kayak rental and guided hikes and tours of the lake. For a writer or artist focusing on a project or for a spiritual retreat or a family vacation in the heart of Maya country, this house is ideal.
I spend approximately 9 months a year living in Santa Fe, NM and the other 3 months in Guatemala where I divide my time between my lake house and my girlfriends home in Antigua. My girlfriend also rents her house in Antigua during Semana Santa (Easter) as well as other times. This is a house that I designed and built. We have a large enclosed private garden with numerous flowers, fruits and organic vegetables. We are planning to construct 2 ponds and a water fall for koi, water lilies. The garden is a great place for bird watchers! Everyone loves this place.
