Outstanding hospitality
3 recent guests complimented Elaine for outstanding hospitality.
My place is the perfect base for exploring the lake and it’s Mayan villages. Spend the days hiking, or relax with a day of pampering at our on-site spa. It is on the lake shore, with our own swim beach, boat dock, public transportation (water taxis), and nature. We are far from crowds, traffic, pollution, and stress. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the ambiance, the comfy beds, the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families. No car access.

The space
Casa Sirena/Mermaid house: 1150 sq. ft. sleeps 2-4.
Large covered patio/outdoor area, 700 sq. ft. includes kitchen, dining area and living space. Semi-open to the lake views with covered roof and protected from the elements. The fully equipped kitchen is ready to prepare the freshest of meals from our locally grown produce with fresh fish from the lake or Pacific Ocean.
Interior rooms total 520 sq. ft. and include bedroom with queen size bed and sofa. Large second room includes a wardrobe and dressing area, and has a double bed. Perfect for a couple, two single travelers, or a family with 1-2 children. Bathroom with hot water shower.

Massage is available on-site for an additional fee.

I decided in 2003 to make a big change in my lifestyle. I wanted to be less consumer driven, make a smaller footprint on the planet, and to give back to the planet. Instead of giving to charitable causes by writing a check, we wanted to be working in the field offering our time and talents to those who were less fortunate. During this process, my husband and I sold our home and business and most of our “possessions”. As we let go of “things” that seemed important to us, we felt more and more free and unburdened. We came to Guatemala looking for a simpler and more fulfilling life, and found it here on Lake Atitlan.  We have been full time residents of Santa Cruz la Laguna on Lake Atitlan since 2006.
