Lakefront villa on Lake Atitlan, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Enjoy views of three volcanoes from our three bedroom home in this eco-tourism wonderland.
Relax in a peaceful, safe environment far from noise and city distractions.
Close to tranquil Mayan villages where you can shop for authentic weaved goods and learn about Mayan culture.
Our home is equipped with cable television, fireplaces, a full kitchen, dishwasher, clothes washing machine and dryer.
The house has a private dock and lakefront, as well as a spacious yard with avocado and banana trees. Enjoy a private massage, have a meal prepared for you at the house, take Spanish lessons, climb a volcano, shop for handmade textiles and crafts, relax.
We have a fulltime caretaker who can pick fruit for you or help with errands and a local property manager who speaks English and can help with anything you need. The house has a large master suite, a second bedroom with a full-size bed and a third bedroom with two double beds. Each of the bedrooms has its own private bathroom with a shower. But don’t miss our favorites: the outdoor shower on the master suite’s side balcony and the “volcano-view” bathtub in the master suite’s bathroom, which we designed on an elevated platform so you could take a bath while looking out on the magnificent view of three volcanoes: Atitlan, Toliman and San Pedro.
The house was built by local craftsmen and the stonework was done with stones from the property. Check out the gorgeous wall in the downstairs hallway.
The house is very private. It's located outside of any village, so it's very quiet. There's also no road-access to the houses so no car traffic noise or pollution, which can be an issue in some parts of Guatemala. The house is directly on the boat taxi line and the drivers can drop you off and pick you up. If you have a car, there is a very inexpensive pay parking area - with 24-hour security - at the boat taxi launch dock in Panajachel.
WiFi is available for a small daily fee paid directly to the provider.

Our family of 5 was very comfortable in this beautiful home. Anastacio (the caretaker) was super helpful when we needed him. This house is off the beaten path which has its upsides and challenges. The house has a stunning view of the lake, a beautiful garden, and a nice area to jump off the dock. If I had it to do over I would have planned food a little better - my teens eat a lot! A few times we walked to Jaibalito for food at the Posada (20 minutes or so) - the path after heavy rains has some challenging spots. We had Maria come and make a meal for us one day which was amazing - We should have planned to have her come more than once. Be prepared for some bugs, spiders and scorpions (we caught 2 in the house during our 5 nights). Taking the lanchas to different towns was fun but be prepared to deal with inconsistent fees and haggling before getting on the boat - for us it was generally around 20q per adult and 15q per child to go a couple of towns.
Luxurious, comfortable villa for 6 people and very well equipped. A very peacefull and wonderfull place.
Magnificent view of the lake and the volcanoes.
Easy to take the boat to go to visit the numerous villages around the lake.
Anastasio (the man of maintenance) answers friendly our slightest needs.
We recommend to all this villa to live an unforgettable stay.
The contacts with the owner were very easy.
What more can you ask for renting a home in a foreign land? We lucked out on this one!! This elegant and newer home has three levels and has the best volcanic views on this amazing Lake. Home is just perfect with tons of space to relax, plenty of bathrooms and a huge kitchen. We would take the short hike over to Jailibito for breakfast every morning. Wave down a lancha (water taxi) right from our very own where they came by all day. Just the ideal home to get away and just relax. Anastacio (groundskeeper) was just great, always offering to help even got us a hired private lancha for the day. A real value especially if traveling as a large family. We will return soon!
Mi familia quedo encantada con el lugar, la casa tiene TODO
We stayed at the wonderful house on the lake over Thanksgiving. It is a beautiful property, very well maintained, wonderful gardens and fantastic views of the volcanoes! It was extremely peaceful! The property manager was very kind, booked private boat shuttles (when needed), answered all questions about the area, and kept the grounds very neat and clean. He would have booked auto transport also but we had our daughter in the area, so it was not needed. There are many lovely villages to visit and we biked, hiked and kayaked in the area! What a memorable vacation!
Magical is the word that best describes our experience at this beautiful rental home in Jaibalito, Lago Atitlan.
When I started planning my Guatemala trip, I knew I wanted to stay in Lago Atitlan, somewhere. I was traveling with my mom, my two kids, who are 1 and 3 and an aunt, uncle and niece from Guatemala City where going to join us.
I needed a place that was comfy, clean and affordable.
As our boat docked we all gazed at the house, then we gazed at the volcano behind us, then at the house again. Pure delight on all our faces. My Guatemalan family from the capital who know all about Lago Atitlan were impressed with my rental find.
The guardian/gardener Anastasio greeted us as we jumped out of the boat. From the moment we arrived, he unloaded and carted our luggage into the house, he took us on a hike to the local grocery store and he told us stories about the local village. He and his wife made sure the house was ready for our stay. We liked them so much we invited them and their daughter to swim with us!
We chose not to watch TV, or radio, or log into the internet (all of which is available). We unplugged and our entertainment was watching the lake make waves against the rocks. We cannonballed off the dock. We swam in crystal clear water every day for hours. My children roamed free in their bathing suits, chasing butterflies and gathering fallen flowers from the terrace.
We took turns cooking. And at night, we counted stars and mosquito bites.
It was the most fun we have ever had on a trip to my mother’s home land.
We stayed 5 days and four nights and on our last day, we were all so sad to leave. It was just so peaceful and beautiful. Anastasio had a boat ready for us to take us back to Pana.
We can’t wait to book this house again! MAGICAL!
Christmas/New Year's rate is $1,000 per week.
