I'm a full time resident of San Marcos La Laguna for more than 20 years now. I'm a traveling blues musician that would much rather stay home. I'm married to a Guatemalan woman, Catarina, and have a son, Ludwin and a granddaughter, Mimae.
Why Carlos chose San Marcos La Laguna
Casa Tula is the final piece in my twenty plus years of building here. It's quiet location with easy access and secure parking nearby, make it the perfect private paradise.

We had a great experience at Casa Gila. The house was beautiful and very clean. Carlos our host was amazing! He greeted us upon arrival and saw us at departure. He helped us out with anything we needed and advised us on the local sites. We would definately stay here again and recommend it to all.
Thanks, so much. It was a pleasure to have you at Casa Tula!
A beautiful house with an amazing view
We had a wonderful four days/nights in this beautiful house, built with care and love by Carlos (who by the way is the consummate host and an accomplished blues-man, who you can hear at his nearby restaurant and blues club, Blind Lemon’s!). The spaces, the design, the light, the details all add up to a unique and remarkable house with a stunning view of a stunning lake. Every room is incredibly comfortable (great bed in the master bedroom) and the overall feel of the house is a delight for the senses. The kitchen is a dream, the outdoor areas are private yet with great views, the bedrooms are spacious, and the bathroom has it all. The house is a true visual delight, but it’s also totally functional and practical for either short or long term stays. Turn on the garden fountain, kick back on the large verendah, and soak in the sights of the most beautiful lake in the world!
Incredible home overlooking lake Atitlán
By far the best experience we've ever had with a vacation home service (and we've had great experiences)! Carlos and family have created a gem of a home and it's obvious that a lot of love and care were put into the building and maintenance of the property. Prior to booking, Carlos was quick to help out with a couple questions and provided us with everything we needed to arrive safely to the little town.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by Ludwin and he showed us the trail that leads up to the house. It's a small hike, but definitely worth the trouble to get just far enough out of town to feel completely surrounded by a beautiful garden and wooded area.
When we entered the house, I was blown away by the high quality construction and the beautiful, artistic touches throughout. Don't even get me started on the view of Lago Atitlán from the upstairs balcony! Absolutely stunning.
The beds are really comfortable and the bathroom has great fixtures and hot water (not always easy to find in Guatemala). The kitchen is really big and has everything you could possibly need. We were even able to get a load of laundry done, thanks to the modern washer machine and covered area to hang dry clothes.
A quick stroll into town and we were overwhelmed by all of the choices of restaurants, bars, fresh produce markets, and plenty of convenient little general stores. If you have the chance to explore, you'll really enjoy San Marcos and all of its hippie charm.
I can't say enough good about our stay. Thank you, Carlos, Rebecca, Ludwin, and the whole family, for a beautiful time at your home. We'll never forget it!
A really great place
Carlos‘ house is fantastic. The house is beautiful and huge with all kind of amenities. The view is terrific. Carlos is very reactive and helpful. San Marcos is definitely the best location at lake Atitlan with a lot of cachet and authenticity.
