Stay with your gracious, award-winning host at this spectacular waterfront property, described as the most beautiful house and garden on the lake.

In beautiful Santa Cruz - the quietest village on Lake Atitlan.

5 minute, easy walk to boats and restaurants.

Come visit the most beautiful place on earth!

The space
Las Vistas, an architectural gem of a round house, with a central courtyard open to the sky above, provides spectacular views in every direction of mountains, lake, volcanoes, gardens, and the amazing Lake Atitlan sky. It has rightfully been called one of the most spectacular homes on the most beautiful lake in the world.

This waterfront, private home, on the north shore of the lake, is an easy five-minute walk from the Santa Cruz dock and a 15 minute boat ride from Panajachel. Although just a short walk from the restaurants and attractions of Santa Cruz, it is secluded and peaceful – an oasis in paradise.

This beautiful home is decorated throughout with Guatemalan textiles, sculptures, masks, paintings, photographs and ceramics. Orchids, tropical plants and fresh cut flowers bring the beauty of the gardens inside.

The entire house is NOT for rent. You will have access to all public areas in the house, but your host (and her dogs) will be sharing it with you.

What is available is the guest room, with a separate entrance. It has a queen-sized bed, walk-in closet, and a secluded private porch with hammocks. A small loft, open to the guest room below and accessible by a ladder (see photo) is just large enough for a queen bed and a small night table. It is a cozy place for 2 extra adult guests or older children to sleep.

The master bathroom (shared with your host) includes a large soaking tub (with a view to the stars), indoor/outdoor solar-heated shower and a tropical garden and is accessible directly from the guest room.

The rest of the house and magnificent garden is open for your use and includes a fully equipped kitchen (for beverages or uncooked snacks) and dining room, living room with fireplace, wrap around porch, rooftop terrace, palm-roofed patio at the water’s edge, washer/dryer, half bath, 2 kayaks with life jackets, and a private dock for swimming or sunbathing. Free WiFi internet access is available throughout the house and porch.

Las Vistas is the perfect place from which to explore Santa Cruz and the other villages around Lake Atitlan, hike or climb volcanoes, go bird watching, learn to dive, take Spanish lessons, go to a yoga or weaving class, get a massage or take day trips to other Guatemalan attractions. Or just sit back and enjoy the views. Your host is happy to connect you with tourist activities as well as shuttles and private boats as needed.

Breakfast of fresh fruit, homemade yogurt, freshly baked bread, granola and cereal, coffee and tea included.
$25 per person per night additional for loft (maximum of 4 guests total)
Children under 10 by special arrangement only
Use of laundry facilities FREE with 3 night stay

I am a young retired American living on the shore of gorgeous Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. I teach English as a volunteer and am conversational (not fluent) in Spanish. The skies of Lake Atitlan are the joy of my life. And I love sharing the magic of this beautiful place with guests and visitors!

During your stay
As much or as little as my guests would like. I love having long chats with my guests about what to see and do here (or about virtually any other topic) but also will leave you alone to enjoy the peace and tranquility for which you came to Lake Atitlan.
