The lake house faces west, with beautiful sunset views, looking towards San Juan and San Pedro. It's a quiet and relaxing location. A challenging walk along the shore path and steep uphill paved walkway to get into San Marcos- 20 min. walk to the town -for groceries/beverages. Also- about 100 steps from shore and dock up to the house. You need good knees! The house is spacious. Two bathrooms were great- both clean. Well equipped kitchen. We loved sitting on the front porch, overlooking the lake and sunsets. The large deck at the water is wonderful for late afternoon relaxing. Deck chairs provided. Erwin, the caretaker, was the best- kind, gracious, respectful and always ready to help. Twice he brought large water jugs to us. Negatives would be- general refreshing and updating is needed- ie- pillows and chair pads- dirty and old. New bedding -better quality - is needed. Lots of decent blankets and towels were provided. Biggest negative were the spiders that appeared on the walls in the evening. Unfortunately, Erwin had not been forewarned that we were arriving, or that the house was rented... so the house was not at all ready when we arrived. He was surprized to see us. But he's a great hard worker, and was able to have the house set up quite quickly for us. Overall we would recommend this house.
