Made simply, designed elegantly, with details of colour, light and textures - this cabin is alive with magic set in a the gardens of Eagle's Nest hosting space.
In the series with the other cabins, the Fox is part of the dreamy story of The Little Prince - who has some of its origins around lake Atitlan - places that can be seen from this cabin.
Facilities (ask for access price) on-site include
- traditional Mayan sauna
- large workshop platform
- permaculture gardens
We've used traditional building techniques of the Mayan people, called bajareque - a weaving of sticks and mud, to construct this unique cabin. Resplendescent with colours and textures - it will cocoon you in a augmented reality of what nature and art can feel like when you are surrounded by it.
Welcome to a garden shared with others, which becomes your living room and way to connect. Kitchen, showers (cold) and bathroom are shared and located in the garden. Find other common spaces for occupying/sitting. For other spaces (like the platform space) please ask regarding access. We also run the sauna as an additional service.
Interaction with Guests:
We have a hospitality team on-site to assist you. JB is available (via messaging,email, phone call - speaks English and Spanish) for any further assistance that cannot be resolved by our on-site team.
Your stay with us is immersed with Mayan culture, as we are located at the top of a traditional Mayan village. You will meet and witness the daily reality of the local villagers. Walk downtown (10 minutes) and take a stroll through the pedestrian alleys where cafés and restaurants can be found. In high season, it becomes quite a social endeavour as walking 100 yard can take 45 minutes (saying hi to everyone!)
Get to San Marcos by tourist shuttle (direct from Antigua), by lancha/boat (from Panajachel - a transport hub for getting to Lake Atitlan). To get to the property you can take a TucTuc from town center to "Eagle's Nest, Barrio 2".
Tuctucs get you around San Marcos and to within 300m of the property.
Other Things to Note:
Please note that access to the property is challenging. It requires a 10 minute uphill walk through the residential traditional Mayan village.
