This cosy, simple, wood cabana, Casita Poder, is set on a large, lake-front property on the bay of Paxanax, Santa Cruz, Sharyanka. Behind the large, lake-front main house, Villa Verdad, is this budget casita, Poder, and 2 other wooden casitas, Armonia and Claridad, set into the terraces of the hill at the back of the property. Castia Poder, is the first and the largest of the 3.
It has an open-plan living and sleeping area with a balcony running along the front with views through the trees and garden out to the spectacular Lake Atitlan. Here is the sink and a perfect place for painting or sitting and enjoying the tranquil surroundings. Inside is a double bed, which doubles as a large sofa, along with round table and well-equipped kitchen. A small bathroom with a good electric shower is just off this.
Wooden retractable steps lead to an upstairs mezzanine/loft area, where there is a single bed (foam). These steps can be raised out of the way to provide more space downstairs.
The gardens of this large, lake-front property, Sharyanka, are wonderful and there is even a Meditation Pagoda and a Sauna shared with the other houses. A private dock provides a wonderful place to sunbath and dive off into the cool, calm morning waters for an early swim before the afternoon Xocomil wind comes from the south side of the lake.
On Lake Atitlan, Santa Cruz is one of the most popular village to live and rent in. It is only accessible by boat (10-20 mins from Panajachel – Pana), but the closest village to Pana by boat. Pana is the commercial and transport hub of Lake Atitlan. Here is where you find: banks, ATMs, grocery stores, local market, pharmacies, cafes, internet cafes, bars, restaurants etc.
