Villa Eggedal is one of the largest and most luxurious estates around Lake Atitlan. Spectacular is the only word to describe this ten-acre walled villa located near the shore in the village of Santa Cruz la Laguna. This Mayan village is only accessible by boat, just a ten-minute ride from Panajachel, and you'll immediately feel the tranquility that this provides. Arrive to privacy, luxury, spacious comfort, incredible views of the lake, mountains and volcanoes, and immaculately tended gardens and grounds. Villa Eggedal is located 150 meters from the lake shore, which offers a sandy beach for swimming. A winding, uphill walkway leads to the estate and then through the grounds to the two studio apartments, two houses, and the owners private home.

(This property is definitely not suitable to handicapped renters or people with difficulty walking.) The surrounding gardens and peaceful setting make this a bird watcher's paradise, with over 130 species spotted in the area. Villa Eggedal is owned by a European aristocrat and art collector, and all the rooms are filled with beautiful antiques, paintings, rugs, sculpture, prints, and Mayan and world textiles. There is a heated swimming pool that is available for all the renters on the property. Next to the pool is a BBQ and a covered eating area. The estate has a friendly caretaker who lives on-site and two lovely local girls who clean twice a week.More

Interaction with guestsThere is a lovely man called Ramos 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. There are two local ladies who clean the houses and they work on Mondays and Thursday. One of them, Manuela is alsoavailable 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.

Our family of 4 (with 2 young boys) traveled to villa eggedal with another family of 4 (also 2 young boys) and could not have closen a cooler spot. We stayed in el hagan, which was plenty of room for us including 2 bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Manuela and diego, the staff in site, were super friendly and helpful and right there if we ever needed. Mornings were spent trekking from town to town by boat and we loved coming home in the afternoon for a dip in the pool. The boys could run around freely and thought it a paradise, though I recommend shoes and supervision of very young ones, since the paths are on a steep terrain. One of the best surprises was Santa Cruz itself! We loved walking the path up to town and exploring CECAP and popping our heads into local bakeries and seeing the kids playing at recess by the church. This was truly one of the warmest most welcoming countries we have ever visited and we could have easily spent another week exploring! Also - the food in Guatemala we found to be way underrated. We are mostly vegetarian and some of us vegan, and the indigenous Mayan diet was refreshingly filled with tasty, local plant-based starches and proteins. The menus and Mercados were varied, colorful and inspirational. HIGHLY recommend getting to the other Pueblos early on market days - San Antonio was a group favorite, as was San Juan. Thanks for an unforgettable stay!!!

Words will not do an adequate job of describing my experience Villa Eggdal is an an exquisite property that provides stunning views of the volcanos surrounding Lake Attilan . Our casita was beautifully furnished with everything provided to make a vacation carefree and very comfortable . Should we have needed anything ( and we did not) Ramos , the property caretaker , was always available to help . He certainly deserves credit for the beauty of the gardens that make up this property . Walking in the meticulouly maintained gardens , with every imaginable plant was an experience of peace and tranquility. And then there is Deedle who manages Villa Eggdal . As with Ramos , always available to help from scheduling tours and shuttles to helping with Spa appointments . It was wonderful to get to know her as a person who so values the people of this community . There is every level of activity available from scaling the volcanos to sitting and talking with others at IQUANA PERDiDA( the restaurant that provided wonderful food and was a seven minute walk from Villa Eggdal) I could go on and on about the wonders of this vacation I have traveled extensively through Central America . No other experience has had the impact that Guatemala has. I will go back .... Definitely to visit and possibly to live . Melissa Huber Wilmington , Delaware

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.
