My husband and I spent 5 nights in this jaw dropping home situated perfectly to take advantage of the best view of Lake Atitlan. Every morning we were treated to a home cooked meal with fresh salsa, guacamole, tortillas, eggs, banana bread, and a huge fruit platter. We had two massages in our room, showered and then lounged on one of three different spots as there are three separate decks. This house offers tremendous privacy and enough bedrooms to fit five couples comfortably. We had the place to ourselves. We had dinner one night with the owner, David who has lived in Japan and his eye for art and architecture is extraordinary. Meeting David was a highlight of the trip. We are big travelers: Safari in the Serengeti, riding bicycles in Cambodia, Petra, etc. Guatemala was an easy 3 hour flight from Miami and the house was perfectly positioned on the lake to offer both privacy and easy access to the nearby towns. The fee was extremely reasonable, the service exceptional, and experience very romantic. You simply cannot go wrong with choosing this magnificent home to rent.
We spent 10 days at the hummingbird house and had an amazing time. The house and views are beautiful! Ronnie and all of the helpers and cooks really made this an unforgettable experience. Breakfasts were included and I recommend the dinners which were well worth the additional price. The steep hike/road up to the house is the only negative.
That is a amazing place! Its a amazing experience!! the house is very big and confortable, and we did not let that views!!! The lake and volcanos views are wow!!!!!!
Casa Colibri and the entire staff are top notch. I take tour groups through Guatemala, Hawaii, Fiji and New Zealand so I have seen my share of properties. The best reviews are the ones that are short but tell you all you need to know. What you need to know concerning Casa Colibri is to just book it, the location, views and staff will take care of the rest !!!! Highly recommended....
This is actually the second time we have stayed at Casa Colibri. To be perfectly honest, we love it. It is the perfect place for a gathering of friends. Both times we have shared the house with a group of good friends. And for a stiutation like that it works perfectly. Up to 5 couples-parties each have their own very private bedroom. Four of the bedrooms have drop dead views of the lake.
Angela is an amazing chef. We so enjoyed wonderful, gourmet dinners served beautifully at the end of a busy day of walking and taking in the lake villages.
And then there is Lake Atitlan, an ever present mystic being, changing colors, moving in strange patterns between the volcanoes.
