We live on Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. Our village is Santa Cruz la Laguna. We are seeking a house/pet sitter for 6 weeks beginning October 1 to November 13. We have 3 cats with no health issues, ages 7 years, 1 year and 6 months.
Our house is on the outskirts of the village and is accessible by public boats that service the various villages. There is no vehicle access. We live in a valley called Paxanax, and there is a small community of ex-pats who live here. Our house has many amenities and a beautiful view of the lake and volcanoes. We have a large garden that is a joy to stroll in. The house is a 15 minute walk up the mountain from the dock. One has to be reasonably fit, but not necessarily young. The town of Panajachel is a short 15 minute boat ride away where you can buy most anything you will need. Here is a video of our house and garden: s://photos.app.goo.gl/fxqJA9PxHm2JjEA27
We have 2 full-time (M-F) workers who are available to assist with bringing things to the house. Also, a house cleaner who comes twice a week. We are responsible for their pay though tips are welcome.
We believe our home and community is very safe. Some Spanish language is necessary but fluency is not required.
One flies to Guatemala City, takes a hour shuttle ride to Panajachel, then a boat to Paxanax/ Santa Cruz la Laguna. Please let us know if you are interested or have questions.
Thank You, JB and Cynthia
