All about Nancy Greene’s place

Wake up in your king-sized bed to one of the most amazing views in the world. Enjoy a swim “beneath” the volcanoes and hang out on the dock. Relax and enjoy the tranquility or get out and explore. Take a walk to one of the neighboring villages or explore the lake by boat. At the end of the day settle back with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset.

The space
The studio, newly completed in July 2019, is an open-plan, modern-style, lakefront apartment. The hardwood floors and ceiling, together with the floor-to-ceiling windows, make the most of the magnificent views we have of the lake and the volcanoes.

At the front of the open-plan, split-level space, is a king-size bed, glass-encased shower, and bathroom. An accordian-style door, at the front of the studio, can be completely opened to remove all barriers between you and the landscape outside. The kitchen and living area is located towards the back of the studio: perfect for meals, relaxing, or office-style work.

When needed, semi-transparent roller blinds can be lowered to provide privacy and/or darken the space. All windows, and the front door, have mosquito screens to keep any mosquitos at bay while still allowing airflow.

Wake up, make a cup of local coffee, open the accordion doors, and head back to bed to enjoy your coffee, the sunrise, and perhaps even a few extra hours of sleep.

Please note: the studio (and our house also) has a modern ecological dry toilet (see photo #12). Waste is stored in a chamber that will be removed and thoroughly cleaned before you arrive and after you leave. It will be like using a newly installed toilet. The toilet is connected directly to an extractor fan, located outside the studio, to ensure that there is no odor.

The Property

Make use of our private dock to swim, hang out, and pat our puppy dogs. Use the wifi coverage at the dock to relax and listen to music.

The dock is also where you will take public or private boats to other villages around the lake, to explore or eat at restaurants. The public footpath that connects our neighboring villages also runs through our property. If you are adventurous, you can walk to Jaibalito along one of the most scenic trails in this area of Lake Atitlan.

Location

We are located between the villages of Jaibalito and Tzununá, on one of the most remote and quiet shorelines of Lake Atitlan. The property is accessible via boat or the public footpath (there is no road access). It is a 5-minute boat ride to these two neighboring villages, or a 30-minute walk to Jaibalito, and a 60-minute walk to Tzununá, but we don't recommend guests walk to Tzununá.

During daylight hours, public boats pass our dock every 20 minutes. These boats can be flagged down as they pass our dock and they stop at all the villages along the northern shore of Lake Atitlan. If traveling by public boat is not your style, private boats are available to take you anywhere on the lake.

We are happy to provide you with contact information, so you can organize your travel to our property via a private or public shuttle and/or a boat (fares are additional).

Where you’ll be

Tzununa, Sololá, Guatemala

"Casa de Cristal," the name of the property, is located on Lago Atitlan between the villages of Jaibalito and Tzununa. As it is a remote location, the predominant sound is that of the lake. Expect to enjoy trees, rocks, birds, and unobstructed views of Atitlan's three volcanoes. The private dock offers space for sitting and relaxing or swimming. Our wifi extends to the dock as well.

Matthew and I live on this property, so you might see us out and about during your stay.
