Casa Lobo is ran by to gentlemen Fritz and Wolfgang. They take care of your every need. Fresh flowers and fruit from the garden is provided. We stayed in the one bedroom villa. It is a simple abode (studio type apartment). The view of the lake, surrounding towns and mountains in the back ground is wonderful from the front porch.
San Pedro itself is a safe town and Caso Lobo is even more safe. My wife stayed there for several weeks on her own. She was never concerned about the security.
Lake Atitlán has risen appx 50 feet in the past few years and many lake properties are underwater and Caso Lobo is on of them. The original road and entrance to Caso Lobo is under water. They have lost two villias to the flooding. Because of the flooding it is necessary to enter Casa Lobo from an upper road that adjoins the property. The entrance is now a dirt path with little lighting. The path can be a challenge at night so take you flashlight.
It is a 5 minute tut tut ride (75 cents US) to the old town (Centro) or to the restaurants and bars. San Pedro is a laid back place with beautiful weather everyday we were there. High in the 70s lows in the 50s. You will need a light jacket at night. We usually walked to town from Casa Lobo which took us about 20 minutes. The locals are very friendly. We were in San Pedro in Jan 2013.
Be aware that very few places (if any) places take credit cards. There are only two ATM in town and they are depleted everyday so when you pass one of the ATM get some money. San Pedro is a great place to make day trips by ferry to the other cities on the lake.
