Interaction with Guests
I will be available to answer any questions you may have during your stay. I provide a prepaid cell phone which comes in handy to call tuk-tuks to take you into town as well as to call me, should you have any questions..
The villa is located in a small community of seven homes which share private lake access. I feel very fortunate to have great neighbors from all over the world.
The house is located on the road between Panajachel ('Pana') and Santa Catarina Palopo, 10-15 minute walk from Pana and about a 20 minute walk to the Mayan Kakchiquel village of Santa Catarina Palopo. Public pick-up truck taxis pass by about every 15 minutes and cost Q.2 to Pana and Q.3 to Santa Catarina Palopo (FYI: $1.00 = Q.8.00). Tuk-tuks to Pana cost Q.10 per person. You can use the prepaid cell phone I leave for you to call English-speaking tuk-tuk drivers whose numbers I provide.

David's house is absolutely beautiful!! The pictures do not do it justice. We loved everything about the house and location. David, in particular, was the nicest host I've ever had. He provided me with a prepaid phone and wonderful suggestions for my stay in Pana. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone.
David was a great host and incredibly accommodating. My friend and I arrived a little earlier than anticipated and there was no problem getting in contact with him and switching up plans a bit. The cottage is beautiful and very well kept, and the kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals with groceries we had purchased. There is a beautiful view of the lake, and it was the perfect distance from town. We were surprised that every tuk-tuk we took knew exactly where to go! The neighborhood was gated and felt very safe. I would highly recommend staying here if you are planning on visiting Lake Atitlan. David is eager to help out with planning, and is quick to answer any questions you may have or put you in contact with someone who can. Hopefully all my future AirBnB experiences are this nice.
My partner and I were delighted with our short stay at David's cottage in Atitlan. Although we ended leaving earlier than planed due to an unexpected emergency, David was understanding and went out of his way to assist us on all of our needs. The cottage is lovely & cozy with all of the modern amenities one would require for a quiet stay at the lake. The view from all points is amazing. Although we are both well travelled this was our first experience in AirBnb and we loved it. Having David as a host was the equivalent of a private concierge service. We would definitely recommend David as well as the AirBnb experience!
David was an absolute delight to work with, offering very prompt responses, super helpful directions and going out of his way to accommodate our arrival and departure. We fell in love with the property and with the area so much that we even ended up extending the trip an extra day, which he kindly made possible and very seamless for us. He was wonderful to work with and the cottage itself was my all time favorite Airbnb property we've stayed at, which says a lot since we've been to several in many different countries. I highly recommend this property and David to anyone, it is truly an amazingly unique and exquisite experience.
My wife and I wanted to find a place in Panajachel to spend our honeymoon and we were glad to find this place. The place was exactly as advertised. It was very clean, quiet, and the view from the porch was breathtaking. We would love to return if we have the chance. David was extremely attentive and available to any questions and needs, which made our trip very smooth.
A wonderful little cottage: the location and views are stunning. The cottage is also well equipped and has stylish decor. A great place to relax, although the occasional tour boat on the lake has very loud music blasting out, but this doesn't detract from the great setting. We were met by a friend of David's who took us up to the cottage and settled us in - very smooth. It is an easy (20 mins) to walk into town and you can take a tuk-tuk back and you'll appreciate the location even more after the bustle of the town.
This house was beautiful, peaceful, perfect! It was hard to leave the deck to explore the rest of the lake! Loved how the house was close to pana but not right in the busy town, it was a very quiet neighborhood. Views of the volcanos from every room... Laying in bed, taking a shower with the window open.
Will defiantly return to stay here again in the future!
