Villa Eggedal is situated on the North shore of Lake Atitlan in the peaceful village of Santa Cruz. Ten acres of beautifully manicured gardens with pool overlook the lake and its surrounding volcanoes. The gardens make this a bird-watcher's paradise. The views are amazing but it does involve walking up numerous steps. If you are arriving after dark, please make sure to bring a torch with you.
Two story treehouse set among the trees of a larger property. King size bed on the first floor, single bed on the second, & futon pads for extra seating as you wish. The house is easy to enter as it is surrounded by trees rather that built into a tree. Designed by local artesian, it fosters contemplation. Outdoor hot water shower. No kitchen. Bathroom toilet is a "Shrek design", dry drop toilet (non-flushing/no water). Sink for hand washing. LOCAL RESTAURANTS REQUIRE RESERVATIONS BY 4PM!!!
My place is the perfect base for exploring the lake and it’s Mayan villages. Spend the days hiking, or relax with a day of pampering at our on-site spa. It is on the lake shore, with our own swim beach, boat dock, public transportation (water taxis), and nature. We are far from crowds, traffic, pollution, and stress. You’ll love my place because of the outdoors space, the ambiance, the comfy beds, the light. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, and families. No car access.
