THE BEST HOUSE ON THE LAKE! AMAZING VACATION!

  • 5 of 5

WOW, WOW WOW! OUR EXPECTATIONS WERE FAR EXCEEDED WITH THIS HOUSE, IT IS SIMPLY GORGEOUS, THE VIEWS ARE INCREDIBLE, AND THE STAFF ON SITE WERE SO KIND AND WONDERFUL. HAVING A HEATED POOL AND HOT TUB WAS A SUPER PLUS AS IT DID GET COLDER AT NIGHT, THE PROPERTY MANAGER ON SITE ALWAYS EAGER TO PLEASE. ANYTHING WE NEEDED...A CALL TO THE TUK TUK FOR A RIDE INTO TOWN, OR TAKING THE POOL COVER OFF, HEATING THE SPA, ETC. THE FURNISHINGS AND DECOR ARE GORGEOUS IN THIS HOUSE. WE SIMPLY HAD AN AMAZING VACATION, WE DID TRAVEL TO MOST OF ALL THE OTHER VILLAGES, AND SAN MARCOS WAS OUR FAVORITE, AND I AM 100% SURE I CHOSE THE BEST HOUSE ON THE LAKE!!!

Gorgeous setting and impeccably maintained villa!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures cannot fully communicate the beauty of this place! Our family (two adults, four kids ages 14-7) stayed here for five nights over Thanksgiving week and absolutely adored it. We loved relaxing on the verandas in the hammocks, soaking in the hot tub/swimming in the beautiful infinity edge pool, Antonio cut our very own stalk of fresh bananas from the tree, Edgar was always attentive to meet the lancha (boat) when it dropped us off at night (all of the boat captains are familiar with "Casa Blanca"), and we were beyond impressed with the lush gardens.

For activities, we spent a few days in Panajachel (the Ultra X-Treme zipline at Reserva Atitlan and paragliding with Real World - do it!) and Andrea (prop manager) arranged a coffee tour for us with Flavio which was incredibly interesting.

Getting to the property is NOT an easy feat - we rented an SUV at the GUA airport and driving on the road down the mountain to get to San Marcos la Laguna was quite the adventure. There are some hairy switchbacks, and the road is filled with potholes. On the morning we left, the road was completely shut down (thankfully, there are workers trying to improve the road) but we had to take a different route back to Antigua.

But if this house were more easily accessible, Blaine could easily charge triple or even quadruple the going rate. We're grateful we got to experience Casa Blanca!

If "sleeping in" is important to you, be aware that outside the back of the house the road is filled with noisy tuk tuks throughout the night, and there are always dogs barking and roosters crowing in the distance. But such is the case in Guatemala - it's not a fault of the house. Also, all of the rooms have sweeping floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the breathtaking view, but this also means that sunlight floods the rooms early at sunrise. Sleeping masks help if you aren't ready to get up, but it's still very bright.

Oh, and the beds are sooooo comfortable - the property owner (Blaine) has a fine attention to detail - and the mattresses are very soft with quality bed linens. We would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thank you for helping our family make wonderful memories. :)

Third time here and can’t get enough!

  • 5 of 5

This is my third time renting this house this year and I am sure to return soon. I love everything about it from the location near San Marcos, the pool and hottub, the gardens, the dock, and the comfortable beds. This is as good as it gets.

Stunning

  • 5 of 5

Comfortable fabulous grand house full of antiques and a stunning view from every room. Delightful pool and gardens. The private dock turned out to invaluable using public boats to get home from destinations around the lake.

The staff are all gems. Sweetest Mayan people and so attentive to our every whim. One of the best months stay anywhere in the world ever for us.

One word: Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. My family were impressed and the view is breath-taking. My wife loved the garden and scenery, my kids loved the pool and the adults loved the jacuzzi after the activities that we purchased in one of the the nearby towns. You can kayak or walk up to the nearby town which is San Marcos. The three housekeepers (morning, evening and weekend) were very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is the cleaning lady Veronica. She did not clean the house to our expectation, sometimes our beds were not made and towels were not replaced. But overall the property was the best that we have ever stayed at.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. However we were a bit perplexed by your comments about Veronica whom we have had for years now with never a complaint? We wanted to be sure it was understood that we do not offer "hotel service" where beds are made and towels changed every day? Veronica only comes on Tuesdays and Fridays. If this was not the issue then we will be certain to speak to her.
