This private, secure, and comfortable second level apartment has a small kitchen with stove/oven and refrigrator, its own covered porch, and a wonderful view of Lake Atitlan and 7, including some live, volcanos. The short 5 minute walk to town makes it easy for shopping, activities, and restaurants, but far enough for quiet nights. The wood furniture for this apartment was hand built by me, having been a cabinetmaker in the states for 25 years. The queen orthopedic pillow top bed is provided with 100% cotton sheets, and the bathroom, with 24 hour hot water from a brass rain shower head, sufficient towels, and complimentary shampoo and soap for stays less than a week. The sofa converts to an extra bed for a child or third person.
The apartment is located inside a secure walled garden and has wifi internet access and use of the washing machine. There's a wonderful private garden to enjoy and often other guests staying with me in the house, or the other apartment, from all destinations, to chat and exchange information with. We can meet you at the public dock, or at Blind Lemon's Restaurant in the central area of San Marcos to help you with your luggage, or even arrange transportation from the airport in Guatemala City if you like.

Magical! Carlos was the perfect host..there when you needed questions answered or supplies, but otherwise not invasive! His apartment is the ideal perch! AND his blues guitar at his restaurant, The Blind Lemon was soothing to the soul! THANK-YOU Carlos and Kata and Son!!

Gorgeous apartment in a beautiful location with a great host

I had a thoroughly lovely time staying in Carlos\' place. The apartment and furnishings are really nice quality and it is a really nice place to hang out and read/relax. Waking up with the view of the volcanoes from the window and bird song in the forest around the house was a dream. The location was great - close enough to the village that you can pop back and forth, but set back in the woods so you can feel in your own little world. Perfect for getting away from it all. Carlos is a great host and the place is nice and secure so it is ideal if you are travelling alone and want a base to feel at home in. There is a house being built on the plot in front of this one, which is in view from the balcony but doesn\'t obstruct the view of the volcanoes. I did have a sinking feeling when the workers arrived and put on their music on my first morning. But I mentioned it to Carlos who had a chat with them and they agreed to switch it off for the days I was there, which they did and then everything returned back to peaceful birdsong. Otherwise the construction was very quiet while I was there. Overall, I\'m very happy and can\'t wait to come back again in the future! I will be recommending this apartment to friends and family.

Great apartments!

My cousin and I stayed for three nights, we had the top and bottom apartments. Units were as pictured, very comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Carlos was very accommodating and great to do business with! I do recommend ear plugs for the dogs and roosters in San Marcos! Sunrise is beautiful from the top balcony!


Carlos is a very friendly person, and everything in the apartment is very clean, we really enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful garden!! Thanks Carlos
