A very special and spiritual piece of property situated at the foot of the San Pedro volcano overlooking the spectacular and magical Lake Atitlan, and directly opposite the public dock of the town of Santiago Atitlan. 

About two acres of land rises up from a private dock and shore area incorporating, as you walk up the gentle incline of the hill: a stone caretakers house; and two picturesque beautiful Canadian-style stone and wood houses, one with 2 bedrooms and the other with 3 bedrooms, all  are built on solid, hand-carved stone foundations.

Spread over the property are three beautiful, self-sufficent, fully-equipped eco-friendly dwellings, along with mature coffee plants and forest; there is plenty of space throughout the property for more constructions if desired. An additional bonus is that the property also has historical and sacred Mayan alters on it, and is just a short stroll away from the ancient Tzutuj√≠l Mayan capital  of Chutinamit. 

An eco-friendly property with all the mod-cons you need, but leaving hardly a footprint at all!

The buildings include:
  • Canadian-style comfy, home with 3 bedroom/study/den, 1 bath, full-kitchen and living room, and a wrap-around porch with towering postcard views of the Lake Atitlan and its magnificent volcanos.
  • Canadian-style comfy, home with 2 bedrooms, 1 bath, full-kitchen and living room, and a private porch all overlooking the woods and Mayan village of Santiago just across the bay. 
  • Also included is a stone cottage (possibly for a caretaker/guardian/manager), which is centrally situated to assist people entering/leaving the property. 
  • A boathouse for 21-foot wooden boat and 25 HP Mercury Seahorse motor for crossing back/forth to the village, along with a private dock. Santiago Atitlan is just a 5 min boat-ride away.
  • Also included: water pump, H2O tanks, generator, mower, Hughes satellite, and other equipment included.
This 10-year young property is currently the permanent, private residence of the original developer and owner, who sadly needs to relocate overseas for her work. 

With plenty of potential for more home sites, bungalows and/or campsites, the property is perfect for commercial development, especially for a retreat-like setting with close access to communities but far enough away for tranquility and privacy.

There are secure borders and a well-maintained infrastructure, each home has independent water, septic, absorption wells, dedicated solar systems with 110 converters and wireless internet. 

This is the closest thing to owning a private island, while remaining conveniently close to civilization. It provides a unique and wonderful lifestyle for nature-lovers, meditators, spiritualists, kayakers and hikers, whether you are looking to escape the city chaos for a weekend or for a lifetime!

All the furniture for two Canadian-style houses was custom-made and can either stay or go, depending on what the requirements are of the buyer. All structures boast traditional Mayan-carved stone foundations and walkways that connect all the buildings and gardens to one another, as well as to the private beach and the paths that lead to the sacred Mayan altars found scattered through the unspoilt, tranquil forest.

Please note that all constructions are set high above the current water level.
