The SpaceNestled on the slopes of San Pedro Volcano and overlooking the two volcanoes and town of Santiago, is the acreage called Orchids on the Lake. It's the perfect quiet natural retreat and a very special place to experience the lake. Secluded and yet close to civilization, the property is just a 3 minute boat ride across the picture perfect bay to Santiago and connecting boats to all other parts of the lake. The main floor with the living room, kitchen, and bathroom is about 30 years old and is built with stone walls and old reapropriated wood from the old Guatemalan railway. The upper floor is seven years old and has a bathroom and two bedrooms. There is a stone fireplace in each bedroom and one in the living room. The whole house is modernized. It's 100% off the grid (solar) but in a way that you won't notice. There are no restaurants or stores, only gardens on this side of the lake. But the kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with basics and there's a great market in Santiago for fresh picked fruit and produce, chicken and meat. The on site host couple will help you organize your sightseeing and any special interests you have. They will be on the property but in a small house nearby and can give you complete privacy if you wish or all the help you'd like. After your days exploring on the lake, the property is the perfect place to come back to. Relax in a comfortable chair on the veranda and take in the breathtaking scenery. Guest AccessYou will have access to the entire house. The host couple will be in a casita nearby but out of sight. We have a TV with tons of DVD's to watch, a small library of books to read, and feel free to wander about the property and all the gardens. Interaction with GuestsWe can be as friendly or aloof as you'd like us to be. We like to check you in making sure that you are knowledgeable about everything in the house. And, we leave you a little manual with tips and info on the area and other details about the house and property. We are here to answer your queries but if you want privacy, you'll hardly see us. The NeighborhoodOur neighborhood is quiet and serene most of the time. Gardeners arrive in the morning, crossing by cayuko (local form of canoes) over from Santiago to their properties. They work until midafternoon, at which time they'll paddle back to town. We do hear the music when there is something big happening in town. But generally, the major sound is just the singing of the many birds around the property. Getting AroundWe use a water taxi service to get back and forth to Santiago. It's only a 5 minute ride and the launcheros work from about 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. So, you need to be back on the property before 5. From Santiago, you can catch other public launches to all of the towns around the Lake. Some of the towns are not connected by road so here, boats are the main form of transportation. We can book you a private shuttle directly from the airport to Santiago on request. Or explain the best way to arrive by public shuttle. This is less expensive but more complicated. Make sure you give yourself enough time to arrive in Santiago before 4 p.m. Other Things to NoteWe are not the place to be if you are looking for bars and nightclubs, although you can make your own fun on site. There are no restaurants on this side of the Lake. The idea is to enjoy the natural beauty of the gardens and views and kick back in and out of the house. If you are out and about on the Lake during the day, it's a wonderful place to come back to. Make a great dinner in our fully equipped kitchen and light a fire in the fireplace or enjoy the stars sitting comfortably on our verandas. We offer internet access with a Tigo stick modem for your normal PC. You choose a plan for usage and we can buy it in advance for you or you can decide and do that yourself on your visits to town. Or, you can buy a Guatemala sim card and use your Smartphone as a hot spot for your computer or tablet. Macs may be incompatible.

The main floor with the kitchen, dining area, living room, and bathroom and offer great character with its volcanic stone walls and fireplace and wood re-appropriated from the old Guatemalan railway. With its two spacious bedrooms and bathroom, the upstairs of the house offers simply incredible views. Its sunny 50' foot veranda makes for a nice place to tuck away with a book or just to enjoy the views across the lake. The whole house is modernized, with hot showers, comfortable furniture, and tasteful decor. It's 100% off the grid (solar-powered), but in a way that you won't notice nor be inconvenienced. Compared to many places near-by, we never have power outages here! The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with basics and there's a great market in Santiago for fresh fruit, produce, and all the necessities. There are no restaurants or stores on this side of the bay - only gardens, a beautiful yard filled with flowers, and a few hummingbirds and butterflies. The on-site host couple will help you organize your sightseeing and any special interests you have. They will be on the property, but out of sight in a small cottage nearby and can give you complete privacy if you wish, or all the help you'd like. After your days exploring on the lake, the property is the perfect place to come back to. Relax in a comfortable chair on the veranda and take in the breathtaking scenery. There is boat-access only to the property itself - allowing for a great secluded getaway. There are local farmers who row over in their cayukos a few days each week to work on their gardens and return to town in the afternoons, though our property is big enough not to even notice them - truly surrounded by trees and nature. The property is 5 minute boat ride away from the town of Santiago, where there are facilities like restaurants, shopping, etc. This means that you are in a quiet, private environment while here. Very special with an incredible view. But not for people who are looking for more action. We work with a private boat operator who is on call for transport for trips across to town and elsewhere around the lake. He works from 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. so you should be prepared to spend the evenings on the property. And it is a perfect spot to be for sunset and a quiet evening after being out and around on the Lake during the day.

        Villa Eggedal is one of the largest and most luxurious estates around Lake Atitlan. Spectacular is the only word to describe this ten acre walled villa located near the shore in the village of Santa Cruz la Laguna. This Mayan village is only accessible by boat, just a ten-minute ride from Panajachel and you’ll arrive to privacy, luxury, spacious comfort, incredible views of the lake, mountains and volcanoes, and immaculately tended gardens and grounds. Villa Eggedal is located 150 meters from the lake shore, which offers a sandy beach for swimming. A winding, uphill walkway leads to the estate and then through the grounds to the two studio apartments, two houses, and the owners private home with pool. (This property is definitely not suitable to handicapped renters or people with difficulty walking.) Villa Eggedal is owned by a European aristocrat and art collector, and all the rooms are filled with beautiful antiques, paintings, rugs, sculpture, prints, and Mayan and world textiles. Casa Wenche is the most secluded of the Eggedal rentals. This two-bedroom home offers the best views on the estate and its simple luxury and idyllic garden surrounding make it the perfect retreat. Living room, dining area and kitchen are all combined in a spacious common room leading out onto a 32 square meter terrace with one of the most stunning vistas on the lake. The fully equipped kitchen and ample dining space make this an ideal setting for a family or group getaway, and art-filled walls and tasteful decoration abound. This well-appointed house measures 118 square meters (1270 sq ft) and offers space for five in total: one bedroom with a double bed and the other with one bunk bed and one single. The ample stone-walled bathroom is located just off the common room. An outdoor terrace and barbecue area flank the entrance to the house and provide yet another opportunity to enjoy the surrounding garden and majestic views. Small verandas, garden seats, patios, balconies, and shady lawn areas are nestled throughout the estate in a maze of winding garden paths. This is a paradise for birds and bird watchers alike with over 100 species spotted on the property alone. Papayas, avocados, citrus trees and a well-tended vegetable garden with fresh lettuce and herbs are all there for the picking to add some extra flavor to your sunset barbecue. Staff provides housekeeping twice a week, and services like grocery shopping, laundry service and additional house-cleaning can be arranged for an additional charge. Two studio apartments and a 4-bedroom home are also available on the estate, and Villa Eggedal can accommodate up to a total 17 people comfortably and privately.
