Wake up in your king-sized bed to one of the most amazing views in the world. Enjoy a swim “beneath” the volcanoes and hang out on the dock. Relax and enjoy the tranquility or get out and explore. Take a walk to one of the neighboring villages or explore the lake by boat. At the end of the day settle back with a glass of wine as you watch the sunset.

De ruimte
The studio, newly completed in July 2019, is an open-plan, modern-style, lakefront apartment. The hardwood floors and ceiling, together with the floor-to-ceiling windows, make the most of the magnificent views we have of the lake and the volcanoes.

At the front of the open-plan, split-level space, is a king-size bed, glass-encased shower, and bathroom. An accordian-style door, at the front of the studio, can be completely opened to remove all barriers between you and the landscape outside. The kitchen and living area is located towards the back of the studio: perfect for meals, relaxing, or office-style work.

When needed, semi-transparent roller blinds can be lowered to provide privacy and/or darken the space. All windows, and the front door, have mosquito screens to keep any mosquitos at bay while still allowing airflow.

Wake up, make a cup of local coffee, open the accordion doors, and head back to bed to enjoy your coffee, the sunrise, and perhaps even a few extra hours of sleep.

Please note: the studio (and our house also) has a modern ecological dry toilet (see photo #12). Waste is stored in a chamber that will be removed and thoroughly cleaned before you arrive and after you leave. It will be like using a newly installed toilet. The toilet is connected directly to an extractor fan, located outside the studio, to ensure that there is no odor.

The Property

Make use of our private dock to swim, hang out, and pat our puppy dogs. Take out the stand-up paddleboard and explore, or use the wifi coverage at the dock to relax and listen to music.

The dock is also where you will take public or private boats to other villages around the lake, to explore or eat at restaurants. The public footpath that connects our neighboring villages also runs through our property. If you are adventurous, you can walk to Jaibalito or Tzununá along one of the most scenic trails in this area of Lake Atitlan.

Location

We are located between the villages of Jaibalito and Tzununá, on one of the most remote and quiet shorelines of Lake Atitlan. The property is accessible via boat or the public footpath (there is no road access). It is a 5-minute boat ride to these two neighboring villages, or a 30-minute walk to Jaibalito, and a 60-minute walk to Tzununá.

During daylight hours, public boats pass our dock every 20 minutes. These boats can be flagged down as they pass our dock and they stop at all the villages along the northern shore of Lake Atitlan. If traveling by public boat is not your style, private boats are available to take you anywhere on the lake.

If needed, we are happy to help arrange your travel to our property via a private shuttle and/or a private boat (fares are additional). We will also provide you with information to organize your own private boat travel around the lake, if travel by public boat isn't your style.

Toegang voor gasten
The interior of the studio apartment is your private space. You're welcome to spend time on the dock as well as the shoreline. You'll have access to the stairs that go up through our property to the property's gate and the walking trail beyond.

Andere dingen waar je op moet letten
Food, food, food! There are no stores or restaurants nearby, so please bring food with you or plan to eat at the restaurants in the neighboring villages.

The Glass House Studio is located about 45 feet (15 meters) above lake level. The climb is not particularly steep, but if you have any mobility issues, please take this into consideration or ask for further information.

Toilet: the studio (and our house also) has a new ecological dry toilet (imported from Australia) to reduce contamination of the Lake. Waste is stored in a chamber that will be removed and thoroughly cleaned before you arrive and after you leave. It will be like using a newly installed toilet. The toilet is connected directly to an extractor fan, located outside the studio, to ensure that there is no odor.

Dogs: we have two puppy dogs that sleep indoors with us at night. They love to be petted but are not allowed into the studio. If you’re not a puppy dog person, please consider if this the right Airbnb for you.

Pests: our property is located in a rural area and along with the beautiful birds and lizards, there are some insects. This area is home to a harmless flat spider and a non-lethal scorpion. We do our best to keep these out of the studio but it is not uncommon to see one or both of these.

Access: there is no road access. If you are planning to arrive by car we suggest you park it in Panajachel. We can provide you with information on paid parking locations in Panajachel.

Travel to Casa de Cristal: this is a two-part process: first getting to Panajachel by car/shuttle and then traveling by boat to Casa de Cristal.

Shared spaces: as our house is located on the property, adjacent to the Glass House Studio, expect to see us out and about on the property, walking the stairs and using the dock. Please note that the small porch area behind the studio is in occasional use by our gardener. This is minimal.

Smoking: There is no smoking inside the house, if you smoke please smoke outside.

Pets: no pets allowed. Our dogs aren't always friendly with other animals.

Quiet hours: our quiet hours are from 9:00 pm to 7:00 am, during this time we like to keep noise to a minimum. Please no parties or fireworks.

Locatie

Tzununa, Sololá, Guatemala

"Casa de Cristal," the name of the property, is located on Lago Atitlan between the villages of Jaibalito and Tzununa. As it is a remote location, the predominant sound is that of the lake. Expect to enjoy trees, rocks, birds, and unobstructed views of Atitlan's three volcanoes. The private dock offers space for sitting and relaxing or swimming and paddleboarding. Our wifi extends to the dock as well.

Matthew and I live in a larger house on this property, so expect to see us out and about during your stay.
