    Property description
    Santiago Atitlan
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5
    Nestled on the slopes of San Pedro Volcano and overlooking two volcanoes and town of Santiago, is the acreage called Orchids on the Lake. It's the perfect quiet natural retreat and a very special place to experience the lake.

    Secluded and yet close to civilization, the property is just a 5 minute boat ride across the picture perfect bay to Santiago and connecting boats to all other parts of the lake.

    The main floor with the kitchen, dining area, living room, and bathroom and offer great character with its volcanic stone walls and fireplace and wood re-appropriated from the old Guatemalan railway.

    With its two spacious bedrooms and bathroom, the upstairs of the house offers simply incredible views. Its sunny 50' foot veranda makes for a nice place to tuck away with a book or jus...

    Additional Location Information
    There is boat-access only to the property itself - allowing for a great secluded getaway. There are nice local farmers who work a few terraces of coffee trees in the properties next door, though our place is big enough not to even notice them - truly surrounded by trees and nature. The property is 5 minute boat ride away from the town of Santiago, where there are facilities like restaurants, shopping, etc. This means that you are in a quiet, private environment while here. Very special with an incredible view. But not for people who are looking for more action. We work with a private boat operator who is on call for transport for trips across to town and elsewhere around the lake. He works from 8 a.m. til 5 p.m. so you should be prepared to spend the evenings on the property. And it is a perfect spot to be for sunset and a quiet evening after being out and around on the Lake during the day.

I stayed at Casa de Cynthia with 4 other 30-somethings and we had an absolutely amazing trip and would highly recommend it. The property is beautiful; lush hillside gardens with avocado trees and breathtaking views of two (dormant) volcanoes. It can only be reached by boat and it is extremely peaceful and serene. Watching the sunrise on the porch whilst... more
