The space
This is one the most up market properties around the lake. A fantastic place to share with friends or to have for a family. Spacious with amazing views and stunning grounds, an opportunity not to be missed.

Guest access
Local bars and restaurants are a ten-minute walk away and there are lots of activities around the area to fill your days, including kayaks, swimming, bird-watching, hiking, village tours and local markets. Alternatively, you can sit back, put your feet up, and read a book!

Other things to note
The only way to arrive to Santa Cruz is by boat. If you arrive by car you can easily leave it parked in a secure car park in Panajachel called Cayucos Marino for 50Q a night.
If you want any meals cooked during your stay there are local women who can cook for you. Do ask and I can arrange it for you.

If you would like help in organizing a shuttle to the lake from within Guatemala please let me know. A private shuttle from the airport to Panajachel (Pana) usually cost around $100 for 2 people. Once arriving you'll need to take a 20-minute boat ride from Pana to Santa Cruz. I can organize a private boat for $20 which is convenient upon arrival with bags and supplies. It is a good idea to have bought provisions in Pana beforehand as there are only a couple of simple shops in the village selling eggs and washing powder and that is about it.
The nearest dock to the property is called Xepoj (shay-pok). When you first arrive it is a good idea to go to this dock since you will have luggage and provisions. Santos the caretaker can meet you at the dock and help you with your bags to the house.
There are footpaths all around the village of Santa Cruz and there are a couple of restaurant/bars between 10 and 20 minute walk from the property. Every Saturday morning there is a little community market held at nearby hotel La Iguana Perdida where you can buy lovely local fresh produce and baked goods.
