My place is 200 ft/60 meters to the lake shore, swim beach, nature, hiking, mediation, yoga, restaurants. No road access, very quiet. Located on the west side of Santa Cruz la Laguna. You will have lake & mountain views, and access to our own private swim beach and boat dock. Full kitchen with all appliances make cooking a breeze. Restaurant is next door for those meals you don't want to prepare. Boat access only, no road access. Parking is available in Panajachel should you need it.

The space
This property is a bit removed from the Mayan village, which translates into a quiet space. You will be surrounded by jungle on three sides and Lake Atitlan on the fourth. The space is cozy with most of the living space being outdoors and under covered patios.
Excellent wi-fi coverage. Surrounded by mountains, canyons, volanoes, and Lake Atitlan, all with the most amazing views!!!

Where you’ll be


Santa Cruz has no road access, so no traffic noise or pollution. Travel by boat from Panajachel or other villages surrounding the lake to my property. Isla Verde Hotel's Slow Food Cafe is just next door, and several other restaurants are within a 10 minute walk.

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.
