Lakeview For Sale in Santa Cruz La Laguna, Solola, Guatemala
Affordable And Comfortable Living At Lake Atitlan
Asking Price: $143,000 USD (Negotiable)
Lake Atitlan, known as the most beautiful lake in the world in the land of eternal spring. No wonder people from around the world have come here to live, sometimes part time and sometimes to settle here permanently. The local Mayan people are always friendly, always helpful and always busy. Living among them is also one of the reasons that people find living here to be so delightful and rewarding. The vibrant expat communities around the lake include people from many European countries as well as Australia Great Britain, Canada, United States, Japan, etc. Those who are more seasonal visitors tend to rent their properties when they are not there, the proceeds often being used to cover expenses or to help buy the property.
Casa Colina is a nearly new two storey house of approximately 100 sq.m. set in a lovely garden, overlooking beautiful Lake Atitlan in the Guatemala highlands. The house features a cozy living room with fireplace, a comfortable dining area opening onto a fully equipped kitchen, a full bathroom next to a spiral staircase leading to two upstairs bedrooms, each with half bath and each opening onto a balcony overlooking the garden and the lake. Upstairs and downstairs balconies are perfect places to enjoy morning coffee and/or afternoon refreshments. Nature lovers will be especially charmed by the numbers and variety of birds in the garden and in the area, as well as by the antics of the resident squirrels. Fruit trees ini the garden include banana, papaya, avocado and lime. The large walled and fenced lot (1317 sq.m.) is located about 250 meters from the lake in a central location handy to the boat launch area, hotels, restaurants, the Mayan village of Santa Cruz, etc. casa Colina is in a district inhabited by
expats from many countries. The property is especially attractive because of the safety and security, not only of the property but of the area. Santa Cruz is only accessible by boat and serious crime is almost entirely absent. The quiet and serene surroundings is another important feature of the property. The lovely tropical garden is irrigated automatically using lake water and the property has its own power and water supply. The property is ideal for rental to small groups or people with pets and is currently maintained by an excellent Mayan guardian on a three day/wk basis.
Shopping is usually done by taking the water taxi to Panajachel, the small tourist oriented city located 15 to 20 minutes from Santa Cruz by water taxi, which arrive and depart every 20 minutes. There are some small shops in Santa Cruz and there is a weekly market where many people buy their fresh vegetables, etc.. There are no fast food outlets but there are several fine hotel dining rooms and restaurants as well as home delivery of pizza, local cuisine, etc..
