Interaction with guests
As me and my wife and 2 young daughters live only 5 mins walk from the house we are able to support your stay as much as you wish. We enjoy getting to know our guests, but also respect your privacy. We usually greet you, show you around the house and help you organize trips and answer any questions you may have about the Lake and help you with what you might need. the house comes with a in depth information booklet to help you get the most from your stay at " the most beautiful lake in the world".
We expect our guests to treat the house and neighbors with respect. We of course will clean the house after your stay, but don't expect to clean up excessive mess and piles of dishes. We allow pets as long as informed before your stay, and as long as they don't stay in the bedrooms or on the furniture. We ask you to please smoke outside, especially outside of the bedrooms.

I live in Panajachel on Lake Atitlan with my wife and 2 young daughters. After travelling and working in tourism for many years I settled in Guatemala over 15 years ago. I settled in Guatemala originally in Lanquin to start what became a well known Backpackers Hostel near to the beautiful Semuc Champey natural Park. Having lived in Lanquin for 10 years I built my house which I also rent on this site.... La Poza Riverside Cottage. I later moved to Panajachel with my family and started Raxha Rentals, which is a family run business that manages a handful of fully equipped home rentals, all of which can be found on Airbnb.
I love travelling, nature, music, reading and of course spending time with my family and friends.
