Sweet rental in Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz, La Laguna Atitlán
Charming adobe retreat up on the east side of Santa Cruz pueblo, at Lake Atitlán. Tranquil spot overlooking the valley (almost no pueblo noise reaches here), handy, responsive landlord, and quiet neighbors (they are behind, not in front of the house). Not hard to access – 10 minute walk down to dock, and an easy tuktuk up, then 3 minutes walk down to the house.
Comes with awesome hot shower (gas, heat on demand) with lower faucet for washing clothes, feet, etc. Standard flush toilet, small kitchen with plenty of shelving, large sink, gas tabletop stove, small bar fridge. Furnished with double bed and large armoire in studio bedroom (great light for working) , and plenty of room to hang a hammock and do a little gardening on the covered patio.
So, somewhat rustic – but cheap with good layout and amenities. Secure, with family (mother and daughter) nearby to look after the place when you’re away.
Rent is 1000q monthly. Long-term stays negotiable. Upper adobe room with beautiful lake view also a future option for 400q more. Gas, electric additional. Water is good quality (mountain, not lake). Fast internet could be installed (400q + monthly), and signal is strong here. Available September 1st – quiet person or couple preferred. No dogs, but other pets are negotiable.
