Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an AMAZING stay at the Artist's loft- My husband and I didn't want to leave. We spend hours sipping on freshly ground coffee and enjoying the serenity this loft offered. The pictures don't even begin to describe how beautiful this place is. Dita and her daughter Tara we so generous and treated us as one of their family. The small touches really made our stay personalized and memorable. There is a private dock from which you can jump into the crystal clear lake or flag down a boat to visit one of the nearby villages. We did have a rental car but would recommend taking advantage of the local transportation- it will shorten your travel time considerably and eliminate and questionable road conditions. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely recommend the loft AND return again ourselves.

We travel extensively and have stayed in many home rentals rather than hotels when we can. Our experience with Dita and the artist loft was definitely a 6star experience!!

From making the reservations, planning transportation, local information, Dita was the perfect host. The house, the Artist Loft --there are no words to describe the magical experience of the loft and Lake Atitlan. This is a BUCKET LIST EXPERIENCE!!!

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

What a treat to get to stay at this beautiful house. Nestled just a few minutes from San Marcos this is truly paradise. The house is perched above the water with a stunning view. Perfect mornings sitting on the balcony drinking coffee. Spent our days hiking in the hills overlooking the lake only to return for swims off the private dock. Had great times sharing stories with the owners of the house who also guided us well with activities, markets and food around the lake. House is beautifully designed, perfectly clean and well appointed. We cooked several meals with produce we purchased from the local markets. Would rave more but don't want it to be too difficult to book on our next visit!
