The porch is a nice spot to read, practice yoga (or tap dancing) snooze in the hammockRunning water outside with grey water system that feeds the newly planted orchard during the dry season.

Made of wood and stone, with solar shower and composting toilet, this is a cozy rural getaway, an invigorating walk from town 8mn and from the lakeside 15mn. A place to turn off the gizmos and get back in touch with the basics. Welcome!

Made of wood and stone, with solar shower and composting toilet, this is a cozy rural getaway, an invigorating walk from town 8mn and from the lakeside 15mn. A place to turn off the gizmos and get back in touch with the basics. Welcome!

The view you see in the picture is from the porch. In terms of its uniqueness, I suppose it depends what you are used to. If you are used to cliffside rural living in an open plan wooden house with no wifi, on the quieter edge of an indigenous town in the guatemalan western highlands, this place is no great shakes. The cabin sleeps a couple and two singles comfortably.

House, kitchen with gas stove and fridge, garden, pila, solar shower and composting toilet.

Depends what your needs are. We can help with general traveling advice, and we will be available in case you need something but won't get in your way.

I love everything about my nabe. Your experience as a guest here will primarily depend on what you choose to focus on. If wide open plunging views make you nervous, this place is not for you, but if you are easy with off-road walking and the quieter side of a rural town with few neighbours and impressive views of the lake and the volcanos, you will enjoy your stay here.

During the day, boats travel to the dock in Santa Cruz from Panajachel, San Pedro and San Marcos. From the dock tuktuks or mototaxis will take you close-by to the entrance to the cemetery, and from there it is a short walk to the house. There is public lighting only halfway there for arrivals after dark and the tuktuks sometimes go home early, but with a handheld light the walk is easier.

Heavy luggage is not recommended. Comfortable shoes are.

Regole della casa

Pets are welcome so long as they dont massacre the garden. Children are welcome but small ones need to be briefed very well on the precautions required for accident-free cliffside dwelling, at least until the raspberry bushes grow a little bushier. Smoking please just outside. We try to minimise non biodegradable solid waste where possible. We are focussed with open flames (candles, stove) as this is a mostly wooden house. If you break anything, please repair or replace it.

We had the most amazing stay in Santa Cruz. Tony's place is beautiful, comfortable, and has the most amazing view of the lake. Tony provides helpful information about where to go in the neighborhood, and both Tony and his neighbor Pablo were helpful and quick to respond when we had questions.

Staying here was certainly a highlight of our time in Guatemala! Pablo helped us check in and out, and Tony provided us with lots of information about the house and the community of Santa Cruz! The house is beautifully constructed, well equipped, comfortable and peaceful. Given the proximity of neighbors, the orientation and construction make you feel very private. We spent most of our time on the deck, watching the amazing view and changing clouds! If you've stayed off grid before, you'll find this luxurious, and if you've never stayed off grid before, this would be an amazing first time. We definitely wished we could have stayed longer. Thanks to Toby, Pablo and Estela!

Magnifique lieu pour être en relation direct à la fois avec le Lac Atitlan et les Locaux du peuple Maya Katchiquel; un immense merci a Pablo pour son accueil plein de simplicité et de sympathies! l espace de ce nid en bois nous auras permis un bel épanouissement de notre créativité, le calme toujours présent , permet une réelle connexion avec la nature, dix minutes de marches pour se rendre au lac, l installation des lieux est a la fois simple et pragmatique parfait pour tenir compte du respect de l environnement; Nous sommes ravis des 4 mois passés dans ce lieu , et reviendrons avec GRANDE JOIE! MERCI Tony! Hélène et Gwenael

The view from the porch was just stunning. If you are looking to disconnect and really enjoy the beauty of the lake, this is the place to be. Tony is a wonderful host. Very helpful. He ensured I was comfortable and was very responsive. Thank you!

If you want a peaceful and tranquil setting this is the perfect place. The wooden cabin has great views of Lake Atitlan which can be viewed from a lovely terrace whilst relaxing in a hammock. The cabin itself is beautiful, homely and open plan. There is a bed downstairs in the sitting room area but also a day bed to the side. The bed at the top of the cabin has great views of the lake and offers more privacy. The kitchen had all the necessary implements to enable you to cook which makes a change! There was no electricity so we used candles which we preferred - making it more cosy. The shower is outside the cabin and down some stairs. It has great views of the lake but would benefit from a bit more privacy. It was luke warm however it was so hot that we did not really mind. We would love to return.

The experience was wonderful. We had a great time. The view was out of this world! Most nights we sat on the porch and watched lightning storms off in the distance, beautiful!! This is a small village, and it was great to see how all of the villages were different. I would deffinitely reccommend staying here. Thanks Tony!
