A very special 3-bedroom, lake-front house in the tranquil bay of Paxanax in Santa Cruz. This is a very comfortable family home in an idyllic spot with a private dock.
One of the best deals on the lake because of its spectacular and peaceful location. The home overlooks one of the nicest bays around the Lake and is perfect for morning swims when the lake is smooth like glass, and sunset cocktails looking out over the lake towards Santiago Atitlan and the three sentinel volcanoes.
The property is entered by a large covered terrace, which acts as an extra room. The main room inside is open-plan with the fully-equipped kitchen to one side with large central cutting table and breakfast bar. Then in the corner with the cosy fireplace is the living area and a small area for an office with a sofa/bed (single). A bathroom with bathtub lies just off this, and then to the back of the house is a Twin room (2 single beds) and a single room. The master bedroom is reached by exterior, but covered stairs. It has a small private patio space and spectacular views.
Situated in the popular Mayan village of Santa Cruz, it makes a perfect position for relaxing and enjoying the lake and for exploring all the other villages around the lake. Although only accessible by boat (lancha), Santa Cruz is only a 10-15 min boat-ride from Pana(jachel), the commercial and transport hub for Lake Atitlan. Boats ply across this north shore from Pana to San Pedro approx. every 20 mins from 6am – 5pm.
Santa Cruz has a variety of hotels with good restaurants, but all shopping and banking will need to be done in Pana. However, a lovely local lady can deliver delicious food, hot to your table, with just 24 hours’ notice!
