“Big, gorgeous home, very safe and incredible view”

This gorgeous home in San Pedro overlooks the city and provides quick access to shops/restaurants/boats via a short 5-10 minute walk. The walk up to the home can be a workout (the road is steep) so if you aren't up for it you can always get a tuk-tuk on the way back up. The keeper of the home and landscaper were both extremely friendly and helpful. The view of Indian Nose Mountain, el lago, and the volcanoes is absolutely spectacular on the deck above the home and as far as amenities, we never felt like we were missing anything! I look forward to coming back, thanks again and cheers!

“Absolutely most beautiful and reasonable casa in San Pedro”

I spend a lot of time in lago de atitlan San Pedro and I have never had a better value in this area this this place. As soon as you walk in you will be blown away by all of the wonderful colors popping out at you. The landscaping is spectacular and extremely well manicured. The home itself was very comfortable and tastefully decorated with everything that we needed during our stay, even TV in every room. Also, the wifi connection was great, this was important for us to stay in touch. But, my favorite part about the whole place was the top floor roof deck. Goodness!!! The view is absolutely incredible. waking up and laying out in my hammock upstairs with a cup of coffee was like no other sunset I have ever seen over looking the whole town and volcanos. You couldn't ask for a better person to rent from. Cliff was always extremely fast with his responses and treated all of us guys great. He also has a great heart for the community and gives back which was a huge plus for all of us. I will definitely be staying here every time I return.

“Beautiful House, View, and Garden”
Reviewed 7 March 2016 for a stay in November 2015

person found this review helpful

My Spanish teacher Ruth Reyes, her husband, her kids and I spent 3 days in San Pedro and used Casa Merrell as our base. The house decor is beautiful. The front yard landscaping is beautiful, and the view of the lake from the 3rd floor terrace was awesome. One evening we ate dinner on the terrace. Afterward, we sat and watched the sunset while we drank mescal.

The kitchen has everything one needs to prepare meals there or one can walk downhill and eat at one of the many restaurants in San Pedro.

One tip: The place is very secure. It is surrounded by high walls. BE SURE you don't lock the keys to the front gate in the house. If you do you will need to call the local caretaker to let you out :-)

House is as described. Beautifuls views from the roof. Good kitchen with utensils, beds and blankets are good. Tv with 2 english channels(all we found) quite adequate. Very secure property. Short walk to downtown.We took tuk tuks back up the hills for 75 cent for both. San Pedro I think is the best town for long term. Lots of good bars and restaurants.Would and already have recommended this house to others.The owner will take care of any problems that arise very quickly. Don't hesitate to book this house.
