The owner of this property, near the old dock in San Marcos, has very successfully converted the guardian’s home into a comfortable studio casita for 1 person or a couple. It is accessed through the terraced gardens of the main building which has two apartments, and is set in the lush gardens behind the building, so very secluded, peaceful and secure.
A small porch area with seating greets guests first and then a door leads into the main room with a double bed, kitchenette area and a bathroom with shower off this. Being so close to town, but far enough away so that it is quiet, makes this a very popular spot for short- and long-term renters.
San Marcos is one of the most-popular villages to visit, stay and live in around the Lake, and is basically only accessible by boat. It has a great collection of restaurants, bars and cafes, but is perhaps best known for being the holistic centre of Lake Atitlan. You will find numerous alternative therapy treatments, as well as traditional massages, plus meditation and yoga clinics and retreats. Basic groceries can be bought here and there is now an ATM, but it doesn’t always have money! For most groceries and other banking you will need to take a boat to Pana(jachel), approx. 35-45 mins by boat, which is the main transport and commercial hub around the lake. This is probably were you will arrive as well.
Local boats (lanchas) ply back and forth along the north shore from 6am to approx. 5pm every day.
The property is near the old dock in San Marcos so close to a good swimming spot!
