Interaction with guestsThere is a lovely man called Ramos who is the caretaker of the property. He will meet you at the dock upon your arrival and show you to the house. He works during the day. There are two local ladies who clean the houses and they work on Mondays and Thursday. One of them, Manuela is alsoavailable for preparing food and extra cleaning at an additional cost. I am generally around my business at La Iguana Perdida but not at the property.

Great views, but.....
In general we had a group trip but... First it never states in the description that the house is not close to the lake and that you have to hike uphill for at least 7 minutes. I was traveling with my parents that are in their 70s and took them a log time to reach the to of the hill and the house. The pool was far away and was not heated as indicated in the description. When we arrived the house was very dirty and dusty like if it has been closed for a while. Pillows were stained and bathroom clogged. They unclogged the bathroom until the next day. Also in the second floor we found rat droppings and in the kitchen rodents ate our fruit. The locals said it was a bat... but still a rodent. The kitchen was dirty and utensils were in very bad shape. The house has a stale moldy smell. The chairs outside were also wet and musty. They came to clean 3 days later one day before we left. And at that moment it was a little better, at least they removed the superficial but but we could even take a book out of the bookshelf because there was so much dust. TV was not working on the first day and later on it was limited. No games or entertainment provided. and everything was so dirty that was hard to be inside the house. We tried to make the best of the trip but I don't think we will come back. We were terrible disappointed.

About the neighbourhood
Lake Atitlan is one of the most beautiful places on earth and Santa Cruz is on the northern shore of the lake. One looks across the lake to the three volcanoes that are to the south and it is unbelievably stunning. Santa Cruz is only accessible by boat and there tuk tuks up to the village. One has to walk a fair amount in Santa Cruz to the local restaurants but the paths are safe and stunning.
Getting around
It is easy to jump onto a boat and go and discover the other villages around the lakeshore.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
I can easily arrange ground transportation at very reasonable prices from anywhere in Guatemala. If you are arriving at Guatemala City airport I will need the details of your flight so that the driver will know to wait if your plane in delayed. The ride from the city generally takes between 2.5-3 hours to Panajachel. Once in Panajachel the shuttle will take you via some shops where you can to buy provisions. Afterwards the driver can take you to a private boat from Panajachel to Santa Cruz (generally $20) where Ramos will meet you on the dock and show you to the estate.
