Enjoy a gorgeous view of the lake with a back drop of three stunning volcanoes on legendary Lake Atitlan. Our home is unique. Our long-term goal in building this property was to be self-sufficient (we are still working towards that goal). That's why we chose to build in the 'land of eternal spring.'

When we arrived at Earthship, after an aerobic climb up the mountain, we were initially impressed with both the architecture and the unsurpassed views of the lake and volcanoes. This impression soon turned to dismay on closer examination. Even though we had booked two weeks earlier, the place was not ready. The quarters had personal items scattered about. No clean sheets, no pillows or towels, (not even a dishcloth), a warn out foamie posing as a mattress, lots of cobwebs and copious amounts of cement dust. Paula, a hired Mayan woman, was making a valiant attempt at cleaning the communal kitchen. We won't comment on the communal toilet. There was a resident, under fed, flea-bitten dog (whom we grew to love). As it was during the New Year's holidays, we had no choice but to stay as all other places were fully booked. Fernando, the resident worker/ guard and Ventura, the machete carpenter assured us that The absentee owners (John B and Kimbiel D) would be sending some money to purchase...
