“Cosy and Cute”
Reviewed October 4, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We really enjoyed our days here. Matt is a great host and helped us find Tuk-Tuks, boats, food, etc. Its about a 10-12 minute walk to the main section of the town where the piers are which was fine. We took a private launch to San Marcos de la Laguna and San Pedro de la Laguna and saved money verses the public launches. There are several little stores within a stone throw of the gate and a tortillaria across the road. Thanks Matt!

“Better than the photos! Wonderful stay!”
Reviewed January 21, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Everything was just right for our family of 4 at this home. More than enough room, excellent water pressure, electricity and wifi - all reliable. Very clean. Pleasant gardener who was attentive and friendly.
The host Matthew and his family were very welcoming. The shuttle Matthew arranged for us from Guatemala City airport was great and met up without a hitch.
Same with our return trip.
This house is away from the hustle and bustle of the main part of town which we appreciated each time we returned back after a busy day. Felt like a peaceful sanctuary!
Only issue was we had to leave too soon!! Would most definitely stay here again.

“Adorable, super comfortable home away from home”
Reviewed December 27, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

This lovely house, located in a quiet street within 5 minutes' walking distance from the beach and within 20 mins of Panajachel´s main street, was the perfect place for our family to stay. I particularly loved the second floor master bedroom, with a big, comfortable bed and two balconies where we could comfortably sit and read or chat for hours. We found Matthew, the owner, to be super friendly and helpful. The house was equipped with everything we could think of, including kitchen utensils, spices and condiments, books to read, very useful information on local services, etc. We loved it so much we definitely plan to return!

“Comfortable and nice location”
Reviewed March 30, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Stayed here mid March 2016 with my husband, parents,sister and auntie. Overall we found it to be a very comfortable stay.

When we arrived, there was no one there. Luckily we had phone access and I called the number that was provided to me. Upon entering, we enjoyed how green and lovely the yard is kept up. Lots of tall trees, grass, flowers. There was plenty of space for our van inside the property. The property is private and gated and we felt completely safe.

The inside was very clean and neat. The beds were comfortable and the showers working very well. The kitchen was well equipped to our needs. We enjoyed the tv and dvd's provided, the bikes that were provided, and the convenience of the washing machine. My father enjoyed the relaxing swing in the hammock, while we got massages done on site. Ask the owner for her info, shes great. The weather was great so we enjoyed setting up lunch outside in the patio. I like how there's a table and chairs out there.
My husband and I stayed upstairs in the master room. We had a nice balcony but upon arrival we noticed there were bats or bats nest there. We didn't want to make a big deal about it upon arrival but after the trip we realized how it would have been nice to have enjoyed the balcony but because the bats were there, we didn't feel comfortable. It was also hot at night and we would have liked to open up the windows or door but we were afraid the bats would come in. If you book and you see this, tell the owner get rid of the bats. The ceiling fan helped much though. There was no view of the lake.
The location is as described, few minute walk from the lake, near the cemetery.

Overall, my family was very satisfied and content with the home. Its nicer in person than the pictures. Everything seems to be well taken care of. Its definitely a place for small groups or family. Nothing fancy, just comfortable private and a relaxing place. It definitely lives up to its description and more. I recommend this place for family and small group gatherings.

Thank you so much. We do always ask our guests to call or write to us to state an arrival time so that we can be waiting to meet guests and show them around. I live 2 minutes from this property and so does the cleaner / cook , Juana. So it's never any problem if you arrive without prior warning. The bats are now gone. We didn't want to kill them and they are good for keeping mosquitoes away. We put a net up after the babies flew away so that they couldn't nest again. We have a very warm down duvet, but now give guest the option of a cooler blanket. Hope you can return, regards Matt

Reviewed January 15, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

About a 5 minute walk from the lake or downtown. Easy access via 'tuk tuk' taxi's. A week included bedding change in mid week, use of a washing machine with a clothesline, room for 3 vehicles to park. Small but well maintained yard. House was clean and well maintained.

“You'll Love it!”
Reviewed June 21, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Traveling to foreign countries is always exciting but it can also be stressful when making plans for accommodations. Matt's home is welcoming, warm and cozy and had everything one could need. It was clean and beautifully decorated with large windows and Mayan art. The beds were comfy. The flowers in the garden were lovely. Tucked away outside Pana, the neighborhood seemed quite safe and everyone we passed was friendly.. It was only a 10 min. tuk tuk into town and a 5 minute walk to see the lake. The cemetery on the way is quite interesting. Matt has two bikes in good condition. The cell phone is such an extra special service to help guests communicate locally. We just loved the fireplace and the back patio with the awning even in the pouring rain. Our visit was too short and I want to bring my whole family back to this lovely home when visiting Lake Atitlan again. If you are trying to decide where to stay and reading this, Don't look any further, YOU'LL LOVE IT! Thank you for sharing your charming home on airbnb, Matt and family.
