Stunning View – Perfect Location – fullfullfullfullfull

The view is just stunning – facing the volcanoes – above the lake…. rain or shine! The house is very comfortable with modern amenities and you can feel it is the owner’s vacation home as there is a lot of attention to details and the decoration is really nice a with Guatemalan touch. There is an amazing covered “family room” space with a kitchen area completely open to the view with big couches where you could stay forever…. the location is also perfect – close to the nicest village around the lake, Santa Catherina (even by foot) and not too far from Panajachel if you are looking for more activities and dining options. A place to come and rest far from the big city buzz.

Clotilde C – Paris, France – 05/21/2014   Great Property – Amazing Views – fullfullfullfullfull

I recently spent 5 splendid nights at Villas Km5 on Lake Atitlan, it was my first trip to Guatemala but won’t be my last. I was equally impressed by the destination as I was with the accommodation, our villa was inviting, comfortable and clean. The view was impressive and easy to enjoy, after the journey in from Guatemala City the first thing we did was relax in the jacuzzi overlooking the lake. This was the start to a marvelous vacation. We then explored the little town nearby, which had wonderful restaurants and great locals. The Villia itself was as represented in the photos which made us extremely happy. The beds were comfortable, sheets and bedding of high quality as were all the amenities in the property. The kitchen was well equipped, we prepared a few meals for ourselves with local produce bought in from town. The property itself was quiet and just the right distance from town, not too far, but away enough to give you the feeling of really being on holiday and getting away from it all. The owners of the property were also extremely helpful with local tips, knowledge and recommendations. I recommend this property to anyone wanting to get away from it all for a few day in peace and quiet, filled with the unique culture of Guatemala.

Jane Y – 05/15/2014   Luxurious Tranquility – fullfullfullfullfull

I loved this place- the photos really do not do it justice. It is quiet, peaceful and the perfect place to retreat to and relax after experiencing the sights and sounds of Guatemala. The views are magnificent and the villa is beautifully appointed. The owners have paid attention to detail and thought about everything a guest could need.The outdoor entertainment area is a little piece of heaven



Perfectly nestled on the hillside of Lake Atitlan, Villas Km5 allows for full escape, peace, and privacy…

The property offers panoramic views of the neighboring villages and the lake’s three magnificent volcanoes: Atitlan, Toliman & San Pedro. Located in one of the most desirable sections of the lake, Villas Km5 sits between the villages of Santa Catarina Palopo and Panajachel, or “Pana” as the locals call it. Just a few minutes to the Pana dock, you can charter private boats to take you to the numerous villages surrounding the lake. Villas Km5 is just 2 hours and 30 minutes by taxi or bus from the international airport in Guatemala City, and just 20 minutes away by helicopter… Read More


Pana is one of the larger towns on the lake with so much to do and see. Eat at one of the many quality restaurants to taste the local fare, explore the local fruit, vegetable, and flower markets, and watch Mayan woman create beautiful woven textiles in the marketplace. With easy access to the lake, you can enjoy scenic boat ride tours to any of the 14 indigenous villages around the lake, or simply relax and take a dip in the fresh blue water.

For the more adventurous type, zip-line through the green trees on the mountainside, walk up to the local waterfall for breathtaking views, or venture further on a hike up to the volcanic peaks. Just about an hour away from the lake, you can take tours of Guatemalan coffee plantations or explore the old city architecture in Antigua.

End your days with a drink at one of the many hotels, local bars, or relax at Villas Km5 and watch the sunset through the peaks of the surrounding volcanoes.

160Santa Catarina Palopó is easy to get to. From Panajachel, you can grab an affordable Tuk Tuk to take you 5 minutes down the road to the village. Once in town, it’s easy to walk up and down the streets to explore. This is a great place to come if you are interested in hand-woven tapestries, paintings, and ceramics.

The main street is full of little shops and artisans all the way down to the lake shore.

If you travel above the village, you can see an array of onion fields, corn plantations, and fields of flowers. It’s a truly beautiful place and the views of the lake are amazing!
