“A Safe, Private, Conveinient, Clean and Beautiful room with comfy beds and a great bathroom”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 for a stay in March 2012

Staying at Carlo's place is a bonus when comparing to other spaces for rent. It's affordable, Safe and close walking to the village. The rooms are appointed with antiques, nice rugs and good beds. There is beautiful hand loomed guatemalan textiles on the beds and comfy pillows. Not always easy to find in South America. We stayed in the main house that is designed and hand crafted by Carlos himself with close attention to details. The compound is safe and private, also another rarity in SA.
Carlos has an internet cafe and restaurant called Blind Lemon closer to the village of San Marcos where you can get Wifi and something to eat. I particularly like Movie night on the 'big screen' and the music venues performed on the stage at Blind Lemon. Carlos plays the blues daily and performs with various musicians passing through. He also has a school if you want to learn to play yourself or improve what you already know.
I would recommend Carlos 's property for an above average stay at the right price. He was rarely there during the day and it felt like we had our own compound. The yard space is big, with a fountain and planted with a variety of local vegetation including banana trees and everblooming bougainvillia. We travel each year to Lago de Atitlan and for the past 2 seasons Carlos has been working on 2 new elegant self contained apartments. They are finished and in keeping with his style, Beautiful.
i hope you get a chance to check it out when you are visiting San Marcos la Laguna on Lake Atitlan, Guatemala
