Little piece of paradise
The property and the view were absolutely amazing. The contact with Flor could not have been better and she made the trip from Antigua to Santa Cruz super easy by recommending a great driver and boat pick up. I will say to prepare to lose power at least for a little while. We lost it for 24 Hours, but it sounds like that length of time was pretty uncommon. The property and the people we encountered were all amazing. Would definitely recommend it and return.

Amazingly unique!
This property and location is amazing! My favorite place sit and take it all in was on the hammock on the front porch! The view off the porch is to die for! Flor and her team did an amazing job communicating with us and making sure we felt special. I thoroughly enjoyed the culture on the lake and everyone on the lake was friendly!

Great location and cute little house
Had some bad luck here with electricity being out first night but owner was great to work with and the house is right on the water and close to Panajachel which will be your main hub while staying there. Note that staying here you will take a boat everywhere and public boats just run til 6pm and private boats are expensive so plan to have some chill evenings in the area.

Beautiful views .. cozy casa on Lake Atitlan
I had an amazing stay at Casa Paxanax. My house was well equipped, nicely decorated with fresh flowers and what a patio. Nothing like eating a meal on a cool patio surrounded by beautiful potted plants and that view of the lake and volcanos. I enjoyed my private dock which I would go sit on everyday; soak in the sun , watch the boats go by and feel that I was right in the lake. Also enjoyed a swim in the lake. Paxanax is a short distance from where you can catch a tuk tuk to Santa Cruz, but public or private boats are easily available. I had a view issues with the house. Main one being that there was construction going on behind the house and on the neighbors house to the side. Started at 7 am six days a week. That was a negative because I was counting on more quiet while enjoying my patio and outdoor area. Overall, very positive feelings about my stay. Flora the property manager was extremely responsive and always got back to me if I had a question. Paolo the property caretaker was so friendly and always helpful. I had a cleaning lady come in several times and what a thorough and beautiful job she did keeping my casa clean. Thank you to all involved. I loved being there.

Incredible home
My family stayed in Casa Paxanax for 4 incredible days. The location is amazing, the house is always clean and Flor is amazingly responsive to any questions. If you’re looking for a great place to stay on the lake I would not hesitate one second to lease this home. Honestly was one of the highlights of our trip to Guatemala.

Beautiful house perfect for relaxing
We were a group of six and we all fit comfortably. The house was clean and well decorated. We spent most of our time on the deck having beers and fighting for the hammock and taking in the view. We came in pretty late and only stayed one night but would all gladly stay for longer. Flor and Santos were very helpful. They left us the cutest welcome baskets and were very available if we needed anything.

Remote and quiet location right on the water
If you are looking for a quiet getaway on the lake, this is your house. Six of us arrived by boat after dark. It was quite an adventure pulling up the dock, but once we were on land we were truly in paradise. It is a smaller rustic dwelling, but the beauty is outside anyway. The sunrise from the dock, sunsets from the balcony, the hammock, the antique textiles are just a few of the great things about this house. We also walked along the trail to San Cruz where we found a great restaurant and lots of friendly locals. We highly recommend this house to adventure seekers and those looking for a quiet getaway. Not for luxury seekers.
