    About this property

    Casa Tula Terrace w/ Lake Views. Safe & Private

    Adults-only vacation home in San Marcos La Laguna
    A 5 minute walk from the town square, Casa Tula is nestled in a private courtyard garden (with fountain) on a gentle South-facing slope that boasts breath-taking views. This stunning and spacious, secure and quiet neocolonial 2BR 1.5BA casa is a balance of comforts, nature, tranquility and conveniences like Wifi, bathtub, lockable walk-in-closet, hot/filtered water and washing machine. It is an architectural beauty, filled with art, offering luxury, privacy, quiet, location, and a lifetime of good memories. INSTAGRAM: Casa Tula is located in a sparsely developed residential neighborhood and is just a short walk to the lake, main road, and everything in town. We've recently added a secure parking area close to the house. I think it's perfectly located which is why I built the house I live in beside Casa Tula 18 years ago. Back in the 90's I could have bought land anywhere, including right on the lake, but I chose this spot because this lush valley is quiet, way more private, and has stunningly framed views. I own all of the surrounding properties of Casa Tula so it will never be over-developed. Living too close or within the commercial areas (closer to the lake) can be loud (bars, restaurants and parties) and windy because those areas are less protected. As for the house, it's a Spanish style beauty designed by my Son-In-Law and I, and built by myself and my crew. The house is named after my first grand-daughter and she may even grow old in it one day. I've built a few houses in San Marcos over the years but I have to say this is my favorite- I got a chance to refine the details and motifs that I've developed over decades. One of the details I love is the terrazo español, terra cotta ceilings supported by hardwood beams. Fine finishes like stone, tile, hardwood, terra cotta and architectural details accent all the spaces. I've always used sacred geometry in my designs but this time the golden ratio is embedded in the floor plan, windows, and even the custom furniture (check out the mirror in the foyer in the photos). The rooms were planned using Feng Shui principles and furnished with imported carpets and furniture which all contribute to a fine atmosphere. The word 'paradise' has Persian roots meaning walled garden which is clearly expressed at Casa Tula. The downstairs living areas face the courtyard and fountain which invite meditation, quiet mornings or festive dinner parties. The spacious kitchen with modern appliances is made for sharing food and making memories. The large bedrooms upstairs open up to private terraces with incredible views of volcanoes, sunrises and sunsets. When you arrive you'll be greeted my me or my Guatemalan son Ludwin. I have all the local connections guests need for a short or long stay and an authentic Guatemalan experience. My life is filled with my local family, laughter, music, and beauty and I would love for you to come experience the lifestyle at Casa Tula.

      Casa Tula - an oasis

      Newly constructed, Casa Tula is truly an oasis in San Marcos LL. Once entering the walled property through the decorative iron gate, one is at peace in this beautiful environment. The large house is attractively appointed and decorated with high quality furniture and linens. The kitchen is well equipped with all needed cooking utensils, cutlery, plates and bowls. The second floor balcony offers a breath-taking view of Lago Atitlan and the surrounding volcanos. There is an outdoor shower and lighted fountain. I would love to stay at Casa Tula again.

        Can't wait to come back!

        We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Tula. The location is perfect. Close enough to easily walk to town, stores, restaurants, lake and more. Just far enough that you feel like you are away from it all. The walk, while uphill on a path, is short, enjoyable, safe and gets you into nature. The house is beautifully and thoughtfully designed and crafted. It has all of the modern conveniences you would need but has a handcrafted, organic and artistic feel. You can tell that Carlos the owner but a lot of heart and soul into this. It is after all named after his grand daughter. The outdoor spaces are very relaxing and the views from the second floor bedrooms, bathroom and veranda are stunning. We are a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 14, 18, and 20 and the house worked out perfect. I would be remiss to not mention Carlos himself. He was very easy and responsive to deal with in the booking process. Met up with us upon our arrival and showed us to the house and around. Best of all, we enjoyed a "private" table side concert from him at Blind Lemons, the restaurant he owns just down. the hill. Carlos is indeed an outstanding blues guitarist and enjoys sharing his passion with others. Overall, this was the best VRBO experience we have had. It was perfect for what we were looking for. A relaxing, safe, and convenient place to base out of while we explore all that Lake Atitlan has to offer. Add in the beauty of the house, views and Carlos's hospitality and it exceeding out expectations. Can't wait to come back!
