We were met right at the dock and walked up to the house. The manager spent the time walking us through and showing around and the simple procedures for running the house. Very informative of the area and was able to answer all of our questions. I would definitely return for a…

Jim's house was a perfect place to spend a month in San Marcos. Just out of town, but so close the center was just a stroll away. The appartment is airy, clean, well equipped and comfortable -- no wonder, as he built it himself following canadian standards. We particularly enjoy…

My favourite thing about staying at Jim's was doing yoga on the balcony followed by cappuccino and breakfast that we could make for ourselves in Jim's well-equipped kitchen. We also appreciated the excellent water purification system. Thanks Jim!

What an awesome place, even better than the photos and a perfect location. We loved our stay here and would stay here again in an instant :-) I really appreciated the cappuccino maker and filtered water that we could drink right from the faucet. The backyard and firepit is awesom…

great house in the beautiful Atitlan lake, apart from San Marcos center and noise but super close and easy access. We felt always safe, the house was very well equipped.

We had a wonderful time in San Marcos. Jim's house is in a great location just a few blocks from the Main Street. Quiet location, gorgeous backyard, comfortable bed. Alain was great at meeting up with us for check in and out.

Jim's place is in a good location close to town and has a beautiful view of the garden and lake from the back deck. Although we paid a cleaning fee, it was immediately apparent that the place had not been cleaned. The floors, walls, shower, and furniture were covered in dust, dir…

You had made the same complaints to the manager as you have to me directly but didn't mention how quickly we had responded to your complaints, nor did you mention that you wanted a refund of money. I assure you the house was cleaned before your arrival. The maids are local women who live in adobe homes with sometimes just a dirt floor. We have spent years working with many of them to try and train them how to clean a home to our standards. This is to say at the least, very difficult. Please make comments with this in mind. Remember where you are travelling to, not the Holiday Inn in a north american city. This is very rural, mayan community in the mountains surrounded by forest. Also, my description clearly states the rougher conditions and also the 2nd bedroom is in a separate building. I wish you all the best for your future travels.
