This recently renovated, artist-designed house has been built in a totally unique location with the most spectacular lake views. Perch on top of a large rock formation like a monastery looking down at the village and looking strait at the most beautiful lakes in the world. The house is nest in nature with TOTAL privacy, (1.5 acres of land) to enjoy birds watching, wild life and lush tropical gardens.
This powerful place use to belong to a local Shaman who was using it for Mayan ceremony.
Today it is a lovely, peaceful and healing retreat, where Indoor and outdoor areas have been designed to capture the most exquisite lake views and to make you feel like you are floating in the crisp, clear air of the lake. The master Bedroom, living room, bathroom, covered terrace and hot tub have the same stunning lake view. Kitchen and bathroom are facing the garden, and have access to the same great view of the lake.
I love to cook, and the kitchen is practical and esthetic.
I have been designing and building this house for the past nine years, turning a dream into reality, focusing on unique features and artistic design. The gardens are green and lush, providing tranquil areas for relaxation and privacy with lots of fruits trees, herbs and the veggie garden.
The outside palm roof terrace is 600 sqFeet, perfect for outside dining, dancing, party, gathering, yoga and meditation.
The Shaman's rock is comfortable and classy retreat form the stressful world, an ideal honeymoon suite or a quiet retreat for artists, writers and yoga practitioners.
The house has spring water from the mountain.
The hot tub with the cozy wood heat is built on the side of the cliff with view of the lake and the cliffs. It is quiet a spectacular spot from where you can also enjoy watching the sunset, the stars and the moon.
And the garden light give it a special ferry like feel.
Note : To get to the house it is a little bit of a walk. 12 minutes from the public dock. And about 120 steps.
But it is all worth it! And you can have all your shopping and meals delivered to the house.
