Paradisiac getaway

  • 5 of 5

The views are amazing! Even at night its gorgeous!

The air, the silence, the beauty.. its all breathtaking.

This home is so well thought out and comfortable, you can tell it was made with love!

The closest town is San Lucas Toliman, probably 20 or 25 minutes away by car or you can also take a boat to other parts of the lake. It doesn't matter where you go explore, it's so good to come back to the luxury and comfort of this home.

The property manager gives top service and his staff is very attentive and lovely.

Looking forward to returning again for a well deserved rest and relaxation getaway...
