“A perfect place to relax on Lake Atitlan”

Artist's Loft is absolutely the perfect place to stay on Lake Atitlan if you are looking for quiet and relaxation! The setting is gorgeous with magnificent views across the lake and a colorful array of plants and trees in the garden. The loft is a beautiful space with plenty of room to cook, do yoga, read a book on the deck, or just take an afternoon nap in the enormous hammock.

It has an ideal location -- about a 20 minute walk or a 5 minute tuk tuk ride to San Marcos or the boat will pick you up on the private dock to go anywhere you might like on the lake. You can also swim or kayak right from the lakefront.

The owners and their three dogs (with puppies on the way) are absolutely delightful always willing to help with restaurant or sight seeing recommendations. You cannot go wrong with Artist's Loft.

Dita's loft was absolutely amazing. It's a modern and a new loft, with lots of light, high ceilings, sliding glass doors and deck that overlooks the lake and the volcanoes. The property is private, and very peaceful and quiet. The apartment is also tastefully and minimally decorated with a full equipped kitchen. The rainfall shower is also just great. During the rain season, you might see some lighting by the lake and on the volcanoes. There is a private dock where you arrive and get dropped off after you been exploring the lake. You can also walk or take a tuktuk ride from the nearby town, San Marcos which has a store and some restaurants. Dita was also the most gracious and helpful host. She gave tips, told about the place and helped with the travel arrangements. Everything went smoothly and I'm hoping to come back sometime. Definitely worth staying there if you come to visit Lake Atitlan.

Wow, WOW! What an amazing treat. I stayed in Miguel and Dita's 'Guest Suite' earlier in the year and enjoyed myself and their hospitality so much that when the opportunity to stay in Guatemala again arrived I decided to go straight back. Only this time I found that I could rent an entire house, the 'Artists Loft'. It is brand new. Modern, clean and cool lines and classily finished. I was blown away by it and the price. It is located centrally within the grounds which are expansive. Road and Lake access are available and the public taxi boats happily stop at the houses private dock. When I wanted anything I found that both Miguel and Dita where keen to assist but outside of that they provided me with all the privacy I wanted. I particularly liked swimming off the dock in the Lake and using the kayak they provided. Security was never an issue and I found the 20 minute walk into San Marcos very enjoyable. The walk back would have been just as much fun but after some food and beers I generally took up the offer of transport from a Tuk Tuk driver! The house has a very large living space with high ceilings and vast sliding doors. The bedroom with an amazingly comfortable bed is an equally comfortable area. I slept like a baby each night. The house is rounded off with a beautiful bathroom with a rain shower and a kitchen which made me wish I could cook. Modern and very large with quality fittings. I particularly liked the way it could be accessed via the large glass sliding doors from the outside or the living space. The front of the building is wrapped in a wide deck which provides ample seating space from which to admire the landscaped gardens, Lake and volcanoes. I enjoyed sitting here in a morning with my coffee. It's also a great space for a little afternoon hammock time. The WiFi was fast and worked consistently well.

“a quiet paradise”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Artist´s loft is an amazing paradise! My husband and I felt like visiting a fairy tale. Dita and her family were very welcoming, caring and they gave us a lot of good advise for further exploration of the area. The accommodation is tastefully furbished, the equipment modern and completely new. The house is clean and the landscape is extraordinary beautiful. The view from the terrase is breathtaking. Our stay in Artist´s loft was so far the highlight of our stay in Guatemala.
