5 Bedrooms , 5 Bathrooms , Sleeps 10
Santa Cruz La Laguna, Lake Atitlan, Solola Department, Western Highlands
Casa Valdres is truly one of the most appealing private villas on Lake Atitlan. Accessible only by boat in the peaceful lakeside village of Santa Cruz, this 5-bedroom home is filled with light and ample space and offers some of the best lake views.
The house is equipped to European standards and large spacious eating area with the kitchen nearby.

Interaction with guests
There is a lovely man called Santos who is the caretaker of the property. He will meet you at the dock upon your arrival and show you to the house. He works during the day. Dominga is the cleaner and she works twice a week on Tuesdays and Fridays. She is available for preparing food and extra cleaning at an additional cost.
I am generally around my business at La Iguana Perdida but not at the property.

Stayed here for a week nearly 10 months ago. Been meaning to review. It's a lovely home. It is clean and well-furnished. The home is spacious and has a modern, well-equipped kitchen. The bedrooms have views. The bathrooms are great. The yard is well-maintained and includes a nice BBQ area and lots of flowers. Surprisingly, we didn't see any fruit...

Our family of four stayed at Casa Valdres in April, and it was amazing! The house is very spacious, modern, quiet, architecturally beautiful, and the gardens are like living in a well-kept park filled with flowers, fruits, birds and butterflies. We all enjoyed the infinity pool, a nice amenity. The views of the volcanoes and lake, especially from the upper...

About the neighbourhood
Lake Atitlan is one of the most beautiful places on earth and Santa Cruz is on the northern shore of the lake. One looks across the lake to the three volcanoes that are to the south and it is unbelievably stunning.
Santa Cruz is only accessible by boat and there tuk tuks up to the village. One has to walk a fair amount in Santa Cruz to the local restaurants but the paths are safe and stunning.
Getting around
It is easy to jump onto a boat and go and discover the other villages around the lakeshore.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Guatemala City: 148.0 km
Ferry: Xepoj: 0.2 km
The best way to arrive to Villa Eggedal is to take a private boat since you have luggage. It is also highly recommended that you buy provisions in Panajachel before you arrive. I can recommend boat drivers and they will drop you off at the nearest dock and the caretaker will show you to the house and help with your luggage.
Activities nearby
Nearest Beach: 0.2 km.
