Featured in the New York Times "Escapes" column, Casa Paloma, the retreat of a well-known American Writer, is the quintessential Lago Atitlan Villa. It sits at the water’s edge in its own small cove—easy walking distance from the village of San Marcos but still very private. This beautifully decorated, fully-equipped property (pizza oven, sauna, kayak, etc.), set in exotic gardens, is a perfect escape for a romantic getaway or a family or group of friends looking for a fun yet relaxing vacation.

Der Wohnraum

You will find breathtaking lake and volcano views from every room, and the comfort to enjoy them. The house has two main bedrooms (one with a fireplace), each decorated with traditional art, furnishings and textiles, and top-quality queen-sized mattresses. Each bedroom has its own private bathroom (one with oversized tub).  Kids love the cozy loft space, with an additional double bed (and a tree coming through the middle!).  For larger groups, the living room can be turned into a bedroom, with fold-out futon couch, and there is a guest cabin with a Robinson Crusoe feel to it a short distance from the main house, with its own bathroom and shower and more fantastic views of the lake, of course.

The spacious and well-stocked kitchen will invite you to prepare meals to share on the large patio overlooking the water and San Pedro Volcano (we can also provide you with the services of a private chef, if you'd prefer not to cook).  The house also features a balcony and a second patio off the upstairs bedroom, with outdoor fireplace, outdoor shower, a hammock roomy enough for two, and a sitting area to take in the stars.
The house is filled with all the things we would want on a vacation: comfortable beds and pillows, a soaking tub and a massage table (we can arrange for a massage therapist to come to the house for a private Thai, Shiatzu or Swedish massage), a spacious kitchen stocked with spices, appliances and quality pots and pans, a library of good books and games, even a hand drum and guitar...

And outside, a paradise awaits. Stone paths meander through one-and-a-half acres of private, lush gardens. Walk under vine covered arches, pick your own fruit, smell the orchids, sit beside the trickling waterfalls…find your peace….or your fun! Fire up the pizza oven (ask us to leave you a fresh "pizza pack" in the refrigerator with all you need to make your own pizzas) or the wood-fired Temescal sauna (seats 4-5); play baci ball on the lawn; exploit the refreshing waters of the lake with our stand-up paddle board or kayak, or just have a good old-fashioned swim.

This is truly a remarkable house, in an even more remarkable setting--one of virtually unparalleled natural beauty, rich in indigenous Mayan culture. Come indulge yourself!

Zugang für Gäste

Guests will have access to the main house, cabin, sauna, pizza oven, gardens and the private dock (for swimming/sunning and catching boats around the lake).  At special request, based on availability and for an additional fee, a third structure (Tree House) located in another part of the property may be available for large groups.  (With Tree House, the property can house as many as 14 guests.) 

Interaktion mit Gästen

Because we understand that travelling to Guatemala requires a little more insider-know-how than some other destinations, we are happy to assist you in all stages of your trip.
At your request (and we strongly suggest this), we will arrange for your private transportation to the lake from the airport, Antigua or Guatemala City. We will typically meet you on arrival and orient you about the property and San Marcos, as well as things to do, see and eat around the lake. We are happy to provide a list of activities around the lake. And we will always be reachable by phone (a local phone will be made available for your stay) or email to answer any questions or resolve any issues that arise.

Two trusted gardeners, Mateo and Miguel, will be on site daily—respectful of your privacy, but also ready to help whenever needed.  They’ll make sure you always have fresh drinking water, and will prepare the pizza oven and sauna for you. 

Weitere wichtige Infos

There is a friendly dog on the property, Pedro. He stays outside and our gardeners take care of feeding him.

Highland Guatemala is known as a land of eternal spring. The weather is always good, with daytime highs in the low 80's and nighttime lows in the upper 50's, and only two seasons, dry and wet, each having its own beauty. Rainy season runs from May to October, reaching its peak in September/October, but you may also encounter some heavy rain in June. July and August often have little rain. Typically, mornings are sunny and the rain comes in the afternoon/evening. There is virtually no rain from November through April.

My friends and I had a wonderful time at this house. We came to Atitlan for a relaxing "girls getaway" and this was the perfect place to do it! The house itself is beautiful and comfortable and we loved the artistic decor and textiles. San Marcos was a short walk away for yoga classes but there was plenty of space to do yoga outside on the patio and inside the house as well. The hosts helped us arrange for private masseuses to come to us (there’s a massage table at the house), which was amazing. But, the temascal was the most relaxing part of it all! The guardians heated it up for us whenever we asked them to (just about every day). We used the paddle board and kayak and enjoyed lying out in the sun on the dock. The kitchen is great for cooking, which we did most nights. I highly recommend Casa Paloma for a group of friends looking for a place to relax, rejuvenate and have fun too!

Beautiful house, scenic views and gorgeous gardens. It was a great place to have a relaxing weekend away from the city with all the amenities to cook, relax and have fun. Chris and Erynne were always communicative and friendly, and made sure we could have all the indications to reach the house and be comfortable. Definitely recommended

Our stay at your house was absolutely idyllic. We were a group of volunteer mountain guides and spent one night at Casa de Joyce. We couldn't have asked for a better house or a better location for our getaway. We spent so much of our time enjoying the private dock to Lago Atitlan. The kitchen was also perfect for a big cook up. This house is fantastic for big groups looking for a relaxing break. Lots of different comfortable sleeping arrangements available. Looking forward to our next stay :)

Highly highly recommend casa poloma!! We stayed as a group of 5 friends for 4 nights in august and wished we could have stayed longer. The communication from the hosts was great from the moment we booked. Chris and Erynne met us on the private dock when we first arrived and showed us round the house and introduced us to the two gardeners who looked after us throughout our stay. The house is even better in real life than in the photos. Easily would fit a family or two or large group of friends. The gardens are beautiful and we loved the sauna. The hosts had all the ingredients for pizza ready in the fridge when we arrived to make pizza in the outdoor wood fire oven. We loved the fully stocked kitchen and ended up cooking for ourselves every night. However if you wanted to go out only a 10 min walk to San Marcos. We used the kayaks and paddle board. Chris also organised for a masseuse to come round for massages in our garden. The showers were hot with good pressure (a first for our time in Guatamala). The views are amazing and the house is built with view from every room (including the toilet!).

This was our second time coming to the lake to visit our son’s family. We had stayed at another place hosted by Chris and Erynne before, but it was booked and they suggested we try Casa Paloma. We are so glad they did! Once again, they were perfect hosts and the place was spectacular. The setting is truly special. The waterfalls, the sauna, the closeness of the lake all make for a very serene environment, especially at dawn and dusk. The house has wonderful character, clearly designed and decorated by someone with a discerning eye, and lots of love. It’s a true home, not just some place set up for rental. My wife has read a lot Joyce’s books and discovering that this was her house was an extra delight! My son’s family came over often (lots of extra sleepover space for the little ones) and enjoyed the pizza oven and sauna. It was like a vacation for them as well. A wonderful house!
