What we like about this property

This vacation home for rent in Guatemala is placed to take advantage of the magical mystical beauty of Lake Atitlan and is immersed in total privacy. We love the modern structural design of the house that serves as a simple foundation for the colorful Guatemalan art and crafts and the magnificent scenery. The property can be rented in its entirety but, for smaller bookings, three individual suites may also be available (please check with owner).

Description

Set directly on the shores of Lake Atitlán, this vacation home for rent in Guatemala is a secluded retreat that invites you to relax and recharge in your own personal and private paradise. Situated on almost three acres of lush gardens, forests and orchards, the home is perched above the shore with magnificent views of the lake and volcanic mountains. 

Designed and built by a Czech/American glass artist and his wife, the home is contemporary in tone with high ceilings and open plan living spaces, polished concrete floors and multiple glass doors and windows that frame the scenery. 

Highlighting the area’s dramatic yet peaceful tranquility, the home retains a warmth and subtle sophistication that also showcases the beauty of traditional Guatemalan arts and crafts. 

The first master bedroom overlooks the lake and comes equipped with a fireplace and an antique roll top tub ideally placed for soaking in the views and a private veranda with a hammock.

The second master suite also includes gorgeous lake views with private access to an adjacent roof terrace with a hammock and fireplace, while the third private room has direct lake access through a terrace with a hammock and private bathroom.

Derived from the Ancient Buddhist word for ‘peaceful mountain’, Anzan is designed as a private sanctuary where the owners philosophy and primary focus is on individual attention and wellness. Drawing from Ayurvedic practices, there are optional wellness retreats on offer as well as culinary experiences that merge Mediterranean and local cuisine with seasonal organic produce, carefully selected and prepared by staff creating a unique immersive experience designed to help bring you back into balance. 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, more than 500 movies–if you bring your computer and USB, library of books in different languages, board games. Optional guided tours, private transportation, personal chef with organic produce/food delivery and meal service on your terrace with advance reservations. Multi-sensory Yoga and meditation are offered alongside massage and spa services. Custom retreats and day trips that include unique cultural adventures drawing on the most authentic elements of the local Mayan culture, from community visits to cooking classes and Spanish lessons. Kayaks for guest use. 

AROUND

The region in and around the southwestern highlands of Lake Atitlan is one of Guatemala’s most picturesque and culturally rich destinations. Formed from a massive volcanic crater and surrounded by steep pointy slopes, the area is home to several traditional Mayan villages including the town of Panajachel, San Juan la Laguna, Jaibalito and Santiago Atitlán where you can take in the ancient Mayan culture while exploring weaving and textile arts, coffee and agricultural plantations, local fishing practices and an unmissable boat tour of the lake’s history. Check out the Atitlán nature reserve and coffee plantation that offers a network of walking trails and a butterfly garden. It’s a twenty minute walk to the village of San Marcos for perusing the restaurants and shops where you can grab a local tuk-tuk or boat ride which launches every twenty minutes. 

LOCATION

Lake Atitlan, Guatemala. Nearest Airport: Guatemala City Airport. It is recommended to book a morning flight (before noon) to ensure a comfortable arrival at the property, as the shuttle direct to Panajachel takes approximately 3 hours and the last boat leaving from Panajachel to the property departs at 7:30pm. (Owners can arrange private taxi and private boat for guests). It is also recommended that guests book late afternoon departure flights from Guatemala City, due to the transport times, to ensure you don’t feel rushed to make connections.

BEST TIME TO VISIT:  Temperatures are pretty mild year round and suitable for swimming all year round.

    Dita’s home is the most beautiful rental that I have ever stayed in. Can not recommend it enough – 10/10

    Eugene

  • Penelope, March 2, 2018

    Super stylish decor and a large comfortable bed. Stunning views of the lake and volcanoes from the enormous hammock. But the highlight? Dita’s food. Fresh, organic and prepared by someone who KNOWs and LOVEs food. The best meals I ate in Guatemala and though I only stayed one night and wish I could’ve extended.

    Penelope

  • Lynn, February 28, 2018

    Clean, modern, comfortable – and so wonderfully quiet space located right on the shoreline and within easy walking/tuk tuk distance to San Marcos proper. We are return guests – stayed last year and couldn’t wait to return. Dita is a very welcoming and helpful host – and excellent barista and cook.

    Wonderful place, secluded, right next to the water. Every day here is another day in paradise. Dita and Michael were very friendly and we had an amazing week. Highly recommend this place, especially if you’re into great art and architecture!

    This is a truly spectacular place to stay. The views from every room are breathtaking! Dita was a wonderful and helpful host paying attention to every detail and preparing a delicious breakfast. The closest thing you will find to paradise in Atitlan.

    You would love this place! The architecture of the house, the attention to detail of the decoration, the pieces of art, the amazing view, Internet, breakfast, kind and warm welcome of the hosts, the lake, the town, the dogs, the bed…unfortunately we had to leave but we wanted to stay as long as possible. You can walk to the town or take a Tuk-tuk, wave to a boat and go to the other towns of Atitlan, swim, use the kayak or just rest at the terrace. One of the best places we have been in Guatemala!

    Our stay at Dita & Michael’s place on Lake Atitlan was a memorable experience, filled with extraordinary details. If you are a traveler who loves art and design, you will feel right at home at the Anzan House. The photos of the house are an indication of its beauty but are not able to convey all of its simple pleasures. Like the wonderful smoothness of the polished concrete floor as you wander around the house barefoot. Or the perfectly refreshing temperature of the clear water as you dive into Lake Atitlan straight from the dock, steps away from the front door. Or the deliciousness of the food, lovingly prepared. (Dinner is a must!). The merits are too numerous to list – little treasures for each guest to discover on one’s own. Although it is a journey to get to this magical place, you will be rewarded upon your arrival with sincere hospitality, in a thoughtfully and beautifully designed space that truly complements the powerful natural setting. We hope to return again to Dita & Michael’s.

    Dita’s house is in a beautiful location on Lake Atitlan. Dita, Michael, and Tara are great hosts, we couldn’t complain about anything, there are nice and kind and will help you with anything U need. The room has an amazing view, and breakfast and dinner were delicious. The house is outside San Marcos, but Dora can arrange U a tuk tuk at any time U need, it’s a 10 minutes drive. The room is a couple getaway, peaceful and quit. Don’t forget to ask Dita for the kayak.

    Our stay was peaceful, the room was absolutely beautiful, and Dita was extremely accommodating and welcoming. You can’t beat the view or the location. You can hike or kayak right from the house, or it’s an easy walk or boat to explore nearby villages. Highly recommended!

    If there is a heaven on earth, this place is heaven. The house is truly extraordinary in its design and details, topped with the most incredible views ever. We had a yoga teacher from the local towns come over which made our stay even better. A 20 min hike to the nearest town San Marcos will take you to another wonder of the lake. Will recommend to anyone!

    A stay at Dita & Michael’s beautiful home on Lake Atitlan is truly enchanting. Having traveled far and often, this experience is likely by far the best and most accommodating rental I have encountered around the world. You won’t find many other hosts as gracious, authentic, and welcoming as Michael and Dita. I was greeted immediately off of their private dock and was happily surprised to see that the room was even greater than the photos provided. A private terrace with views of the entire lake. Michael and his daughter were kind, worldly, and truly a delight to spend time with. From the delicious breakfast and dips in the refreshing lake to the short walk into San Marcus, I couldn’t have asked for a better experience! :)

    This place is a little slice of heaven. It is honestly one of the most incredible places I’ve ever stayed in my life. The views are completely breathtaking, you have a ton of privacy, Dita and John are the sweetest hosts (that can make a mean meal to boot!). We were here during our last weekend in Guatemala after a month and it could not have been a perfect way to end our trip. We honestly stayed at the house the whole time except a few hours to explore close-by San Marcos. My husband and I will never forget this place and are already discussing the necessity of our return!

    This was without a doubt the most relaxing stay of my life! Dita and her family put so much care into every aspect of the stay. The home is stunning, the location is unbelievable and the food was so healthy, delicious, and beautifully presented! Every sense was nurtured here!

    Waking up each morning in this white bliss, only to open up the curtains to views of the entire Lake Atitlan and the inspiration for Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s “The Little Prince”, was a magnificent return to the simplicity and awe of nature in a minimally designed outstanding home. Located in the upper part of Dita’s affectionately named Anzan House, this room, terrace, and ensuite enables guests to spend time in a space full of possibilities and imagination. Lush greenery planted carefully across the gardens and rooftop result in fine examples of beautiful transformations of landscapes that stem from creative and thoughtful thinking. With an ample sized room, designed and detailed with artifacts and components, this room far exceeds its “style and comfort” name, it is simply impeccable. Thank you so much for your warm welcome, luxury stay and exceptional breakfasts Dita.

    We loved our stay at Dita’s place and didn’t want to leave! It’s so peaceful there. Lovely waking up and seeing the lake right outside your room. Comfortable hammock to chill in on the balcony. Easy to get to and from by public boat, which will stop at their pier. About 20mins easy walk into San Marcos with the option of catching a tuk-tuk back in the evening.

    The room was incredible! It has outstanding views from the King size bed and roof terrace where we relaxed with our afternoon tea looking at the sunset. A fifteen-minute walk to the village of San Marcos or a four-minute public boat ride which stops in front of the house and runs every twenty minutes. Next time I visit Lake Atitlan, I will definitely book this room. The gourmet breakfast was served on the roof terrace overlooking the lake, and we also ordered Dita’s kitchen special for dinner, which was 5-star quality cuisine consisting of fava bean dip, grilled fennel, rosemary lemon chicken, with turmeric potatoes and lentil dal which I could hardly finish, it was beautifully decorated with an original taste. I would highly recommend this as a must stay place, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us.

    This place is a little piece of heaven on earth. And Dita’s hospitality is beyond what I expected. It’s a very private location but it’s perfect if you are looking for some relaxing, peace and quiet. This room is amazing, let alone the view is to die for. I would recommend this place over any hotel. You don’t get such personal hospitality anywhere else. I can’t wait to go back!!!

    If it was possible, I’d never chosen to leave Dita’s place. I was recovering from being ill at Dita’s. And Dita was so kind and took such good care of me. The house has one of the best setups on the North side of the lake. The view was unbeatable. The breakfast was delicious. The bed was luxuriously comfortable. The shower was out of this world. I’ll be dreaming about coming back to Dita’s little paradise on Lake Atitlan.

    I’ve stayed in many houses on Lake Atitlan and this one is by far my favorite. The room has a wonderful book selection, the bed is comfortable and high quality and decors are perfect for someone with an eye for design. Dita is an incredibly accommodating host. Breakfasts were tasty and served in various scenic locations around be property. Would definitely recommend this location and stay here again myself!

    f you want to get a quiet but amazing place to calm down and relax, this is the place to be. Modern, clean with access to the lake and not too far away from San Marcos (perfectly reachable via boat) Ditas property provides everything you can imagine. Dita helped us out a lot in terms of getting to her place and also leaving her place very early before the normal transportation starts – thanks for that!! She also offered us to get dinner which was amazing :)

    I agree with all of the above (below?): this place is just a piece of paradise right at the shore of Lago Atitlán. Peaceful, stunning views, private and in good connection with the neighboring villages by lancha/ boat. Michael has been an attentive and caring host to me, not ‘all-over’ but just silently present, helpful and exchanging nice little talks. Oh and serving beautiful breakfast on the private terrace every day.. what else could you wish for? If you get the chance: go! A wonderful place where you easily tap into the loving energy of the place, the lake, nature in general, art, life itself. Thanks for sharing Dita & Michael (+ dogs & parrot )!

    Anzan House as local calls it is incredible. If you love contemporary architecture as much as we do, this home will sweep you off your feet! The White Room is airy, spacious, tidy and filled with soft, natural light. The bed is very comfortable & we slept well every night. The private patio is a welcoming space with fabulous views of the lake. We could not have asked for better hosts and have nothing but good things to say about our stay- it was relaxing and refreshing. We were sad to leave and are already dreaming of our next visit! Highly recommend.

    Our stay at Dita’s & Miguel’s lovely home was fantastic. The home is beautifully designed, very spacious, tastefully decorated and has stunning views of Lake Atitlan. It is easy to reach via public boats and is in a secluded & quiet but incredibly scenic location. Miguel is an excellent host and has a rich collection of stories to share from his many travels and adventures. We would have loved to have met Dita, but she was away. Breakfast is served daily on the terrace overlooking the lake, and we loved the homemade bread and delicious red pepper salsa. Ultimately – our stay was memorable; we would love to return. Staying at Anzan House feels like having your own slice of paradise with second-to-none views of Lake Atitlan. Thank you, Dita & Miguel!

    Anzan house is by far the most beautiful house we have seen around the lake! The interior meets all the expectations that the external architecture presumes. The room itself is very bright, the bed is comfy and the furniture is elegant, yet cozy. The breakfast included was delicious and more than enough (it came with lovely homemade bread). We were allowed to use the kayak which proved to be a lot of fun and all in all we were very well looked after.

    We missed the pleasure of meeting Dita, who was out of town. But Michael greeted us at the dock upon arrival and it was a perfect experience through to the end. Communication was a breeze, but necessary when staying here. Pay attention to the details regarding public boats and getting around to the towns surrounding the lake, and you will have wonderful adventures. Definitely, have Dita’s husband Michael cook a meal for you if possible. His breakfasts and cappuccinos are simply amazing as well. The views are stunning in all directions. It was a special treat to experience Christmas eve and the dozens of fireworks displays surrounding the lake! I highly recommend staying here for relaxation and romance!

    We had a wonderful stay at the Suite 3! It must be the most serene and relaxing place we’ve stayed, made all the more so by the Michael and Dita who are excellent hosts. We arranged to have dinner cooked for us on the terrace twice. Both meals were the best we ate during our 5 days stay at the lake. We couldn’t recommend the Suite 3  highly enough and already have plans to return. Thanks, Michael and Dita!

    Let’s start with, I used to host my condo in Chicago. Dita and Michael made me realize very quickly we were rookies compared to them. Breakfast was honestly my favorite part of the stay. Every morning, the tastiest, fresh food was brought out and it was never a disappointment. The lake is right there and the water is clean and is always the perfect temperature. The party life, restaurants, cafes, message/medical clinics are either walkable, 20q for a Tuk Tuk or 5q for a boat ride to all the surrounding towns. This place is close to everywhere you want to be, it’s a beautiful home and property, very well maintained and always clean, no weird bugs like other people have said too, your room and bathroom is not only a huge space, its in its own wing so you’re never bothered unless you want to chat. Our host made us feel like we were family, we were seriously sad to leave today but until next time!! I can’t believe the deal we got from our stay. This place is absolutely amazing and by far the best place to be if you’re looking to stay by the lake.

    First of all Dita and her family are awesome people, they are super kind and we fell like we were with our own family. They are also great chefs, the food was delicious and beyond our expectations. I went there with my girlfriend and I proposed to her there, Dita also helps me with that and it was an unforgettable moment. The house was beautiful, everything was clean and tidy, the furniture is so nice and the garden too. I have absolutely nothing to complain about. I would recommend anyone to go to her place and I’m 100% sure that I will stay there again, maybe to celebrate my first marriage anniversary :)

    Dita has the most amazing home ever… The pictures really do not give this beautiful real estate justice! I couldn’t believe what a hidden gem we had found! Dita helped set up transportation to and from the airport without any difficulty for us! Our driver even beat us thru customs and was waiting for us on the other side with my last name displayed so we could find him. We took a lovely trip thru Antigua then arrived to our private boat… It really was nice to have someone figure out all this for us especially after a red-eye flight from California. When we met Dita she showed us around and let us know she was available if we needed anything that wasn’t on her detailed list. We followed all her recommendations for meals and exploring and she even cooked us dinner one night! That was such a special night to meet her daughter and just chat about Guatemala and the Lake. She is the most interesting woman ever! Can I be Dita for a day?? She is pure love and a beautiful soul… We did a lot of exploring of the villages, hiked the volcano, and did yoga until our muscles ached. Then, we enjoyed a massage Dita also helped set up, with Martha (best massage I have ever had in my life) outside our patio next to the lake. Listening to the waves crash and birds chirping all around is quite the dream-like experience… I wish I had her come more during my stay! Did I mention you can walk right into the lake from the patio and swim? It is truly breathtaking. This home should be in Architectural Digest. Seriously! It is THAT gorgeous! The only bad thing I have to say is that we had to leave and go back to work! I almost cried! I wanted to stay forever! You won’t find a perfect house on the lake in my opinion. I definitely want to return to this paradise of Dita’s on my next trip to Lake Atitlan… It was magical and I will never forget Dita and her perfect pink home. Thank you, Dita! You are loved and will be missed! Xox

    I can not say enough about the hosts and also about the house. Both were way beyond our expectations. The house is perfection: the setting, the amenities, the comfort, the decor. We didn’t want to leave. The hosts are also amazing. They made our stay so special by attending to every detail in a way that went above and beyond: where to go, how to get there, helping us get groceries, arranging yoga. They were so warm and thoughtful. We feel very lucky to have met them and that they shared their gorgeous home with us. Thank you again from all of us D and T.
