The house is situated in a very quiet part of town and surrounded by lush greenery and trees and has a view towards the nearby hills, Volcanoes and part of the Lake.
The property next door has a large garden, which makes the house feel even more spacious and green. Few Tuc Tucs pass by this road. The security is fantastic in this part of town and the house has a large main gate and walls which give it superior privacy. Being only a few minutes walk from the lake means that it´s easy to pop off to see the sun set every day. Casa Solhana has a very intimate cottage feel, a quaint front porch and a green and flower filled garden. The community where the house is situated is very friendly and has plenty of small shops for buying food and drink for the house.
I decided to renovate this house, mainly for its location. It´s situated in a peaceful part of town only 3 minutes walk from the lake,and 3 minutes from our family home. It´s a fantastic point to base yourself for a visit to Panajachel and all of Lake Atitlan. Private boats can be hired from near the house for trips to other Lake side towns, and a short walk takes you to the Jucanya beach for morning strolls or sunsets.
You have access to the whole house and it's facilities. We don't give you access to the Queen room and Twin room.

We had a great stay in Matt's Panajachel cottage. Everything we needed in the kitchen was there and the bed was incredibly comfortable. Matt met us at the cottage when we arrived and made sure we knew how things in the house worked. The garden is beautiful and it was great to have a place where our daughter could play. The cottage is about a 15-20 min walk from the main Calle Santander but when we didn't want to walk, the tuk-tuks were always easy to grab. We can't wait to go back and relax at this beautiful cottage. Thanks Matt!
Matt's beautiful house was so good we had to go back! The location is peaceful, birds and crickets rather than noisy tuk tuks, yet it's still close to the centre and very easy with tuk tuks at the end of the lane (only 5q to get into town). The garden is well looked after and makes a great place to hang out in. The house itself feels like a home, it's perfectly clean, stylishly finished and has everything you want from a blender to candles, dvd's to bikes, darts board to high chair. The bed is bigger and more comfortable than ours at home! And there are not one but two upstairs balconies, and the house The water is hot (and solar powered) and the showers are great. The neighbourhood is really nice and feels very safe, you are a few minutes walk from the lakeside and very near the cemetery which is the most colourful I have ever seen. We stayed there with our baby and found the house perfect for a family.
Matt is brilliant and gave us all the info on Pana we needed and much more. We are already planning to come back next year !

About the Host, Matt
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 nearly 15 years ago and was involved in a well known Backpackers Hostel in Lanquin 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 recently renovated Casa Solhana.
I love travelling, nature, music and reading and of course spending time with my family and friends.
