Simple Luxury in Nature's Splendour

Located in: San Marcos La Laguna
Warm tones of pine offset by vibrant Guatemalan textures and colors make the indoor space comfortable and inviting. The natural laja stone-- great for bare feet, easy to sweep, wet, and clean, covers the floor area of the entire living space inside and out.

The matrimonial size bed, suitable for 1 or 2 people, is a cozy nook with reading light in the bedroom. It is delicious for lounging, reading, resting, and meditating. Shutters on 3 sides open to breezes, streams of light, and beauty wherever you look.

A second room provides a cozy living space with sitting area, an attractive work corner, and a fabulous hand-made sofa/bed for a 3rd person if required. This is a great space for personal time or for an intimate gathering with a few friends.

Outside, the generous corridor patio-terrace has infinite possibilities, from fine dining under the starlit night to exercising, entertaining, swinging in the hammock and being with the rain. It remains shady in the heat of the day, and is always comfortable at any time. The lawn and gardens are super user-friendly for play and gathering, for night-time around the fire, for holding ceremony, adaptable to your lifestyle.

The living space opens onto the corridor, leading past a semi-indoor shower and wash area with sink, storage, and shelving. Next in line is the self-contained, equipped kitchen, with fridge, stove, ample cookware and utensils, and an eco water filter. An outdoor pila can be accessed through the window of the kitchen for rinsing water. The kitchen is equipped with high stool chairs for eating at the wooden counter or for use in preparing food in a relaxed manner. Continuing outside and past the kitchen, the corridor winds around to the pila and toilet area.

The house is accessible by road on 4 cuerdas (close to an acre) of land that stretch up the mountain and afford awesome vistas from so many vantage points; the mountain mother rises up on the north with sheer power and beauty; to the south, the Lago and volcanoes reflect the shifting light shows from dawn to dusk. In the night, the city lights of San Pedro dance across the waters. The neighbour on the east is the magical energy of the Sacred Mayan Site, a mighty rock that is visible through the eastern windows. This is a holy site, mostly unused (by humans), but the occasional host for Mayan fire ceremonies. On the west, our neighbour is a tract of undeveloped land, as well as a couple of rustic homes visible or audible in the distance from time to time.

There are several gardens with herbs, planted veggies, fruit trees and flowers, inviting the loving hands of any avid gardener, depending on the length of your stay. The tree population includes 2 fruit-bearing avocado trees, as well as banana, fig, jocote, cactus, and papaya trees; other trees grace the landscape with white, yellow or purple flowers depending on the time of year.

This beautiful, magical, and versatile space is 'instant home'.great for alone time, and great for company. It is ideal as a creative retreat, as a getaway to a place of beauty, culture and diversity, or as a home base for anyone participating in one of the world-renowned courses and opportunities in our vibrant town of San Marcos. I invite you to experience the tranquility, inspiration, and beauty that I have been graced with in this remarkable place.
