Commercial & Hoteles · For Sale


Just meters from the main dock in the small, boat-access-only, Lake Atitlan village of Jaibalito is this gorgeous property, Casa Vivare. Designed as a small, retreat, Boutique AirBnB-type rental space it offers the investor all sorts of options. It is laid out over 568 square metre / 6,114 square feet, in a L-shape, accessed from the main public footpath running from the public dock into the centre of the village (just 50m from the public dock and lake shore).

The property has a carefully thought-out, colourful and beautiful design and plan. All fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality, with much being imported from the USA. The owner is an artist, and this is reflected in the many beautiful decorations and handmade tile mosaics found throughout the property (many of which are included in the price!). The price also includes some of the furniture etc. For more details on this, please contact us.

The main entrance opens onto a paved terrace area with mosaics, raised flower beds, covered eating area, and exterior stairs leading to the upper level’s covered terrace. The two-story main house is entered here too. You enter into a hallway with a living room off to the left, a bathroom in front, and then a really good-sized kitchen with washer and dryer off to the right. This is the ‘private’ part of the house that can be closed off from the more ‘public’ back part of the house.

The living room leads through to a screened studio/massage room at the back. This room has direct access to the stairs to the upper level as well as a screened-in sitting room for guests. The stairs lead up to the second level with two large bedrooms, a bathroom, a small landing area and the Master Bedroom (above the living room) which has its own private, covered patio looking out to the mountains behind. The small landing area also opens out onto the upper, covered terraced area, which has wonderful views down to the public dock, out over the shoreline of Lake Atitlan, and up to the mountains behind.

From the main public footpath a second smaller entrance door leads along the side of the house to the paved courtyard at the back. Here there are a further three bedrooms around the courtyard and another raised flowerbed, a bathroom, along with both a covered and open-air social area with a fire pit, a kitchen with bar.

This back area also has access to the kitchen in the main house and the screened-in sitting room.

Each raised flower bed is filled with flowers, orchids, medicinal plants, herbs etc., and has its own sophisticated watering system. There is a worm compost as well. Tucked into the back corner beside the bathroom is a large bodega. Here there is an array of high quality tools and good quality house/garden equipment which is an open to purchase with the property.

The front part of the Main house was built in 2007 and the back part in 2013. The outdoor kitchen was completed in 2015, the exterior bedrooms 2016. All windows are screened in.
Currently all the rooms rent very successfully on AirBnB and other rental platforms. The property is Turn-Key ready with a highly recommended and competent guardian/gardener.
