About Walter Jacobs
My family and I have decided to share our Lake House with other families who want to travel to Guatemala and know the beauty of Lake Atitlan in Panajachel, Solola, Guatemala... With my family we have really enjoyed this House facing the Lake and we have many extraordinary memories lived in this beautiful place. You have to come and know this amazing place !!
Why Walter Jacobs chose Panajachel
This House has a very interesting past as a place for family recreation. The house is comfortable, spacious and with a beautiful garden. From the living room you have a wonderful view of the garden and Lake Atitlan as well as a breathtaking view of the volcanoes around the Lake. "Truly Awesome"
What makes this House unique
Staying with us, you will have the benefits of a residential place within the village of Panajachel, outside the noise of the town center but very close to everything. A very safe place to stay !!!

The villa was very nice and the staff did what ever was necessary to make our stay a top trip
By American standards, the villa was only medium, but is a virtual luxury villa compared to most of Guatemala. It was tasteful, clean and simple with all American amenities. Tha staff made our stay very easy. They arranged many things for us, including cooks on Thanksgiving, getting our clothes washed and a day boat trip on Lake Atitlan. Driving in this part of Guatemala is difficult, but we made it there and back without incident.
Our thanks go to Aaron, the manager.
The property is just as beautiful as it seems in its pictures.
This was the perfect location for our family vacation! Aaron and his staff made us feel at home right away. The house was outfitted with everything we needed, One trip to the market and we were cooking up a storm! First towels and cleaning service every day made us feel like we were staying in a fancy hotel, but with all the comforts of home. Our daughter had a birthday while we were here, and Aaron arranged for a piñata to be set up while we were out on the town. We came back to a beautiful scene in the yard, ready for our daughter and her little cousins to enjoy. Every day we made a trip into town which was both scenic and pleasurable by tuk tuk. The service at Casa Jucanya is incredible, thank you Aaron! We certainly felt like whatever we needed was supplied, questions we had were answered, and we were treated with impeccable hospitality. We will most definitely be back, and we have already recommended this fabulous spot to all our friends!
Great House, Quite Location
This rental more than met my expectations. It's new and across the road from the lake. The views are incredible and it's in a very quiet area. Our host was there to greet us and make sure everything was in order. There is also a management office on the property staffed with friendly helpful people. The home is well equipped, the towels were new, and the bedrooms were large. The living area is bright and cheerful surrounded by windows. It had that Michigan/Wisconsin lake house feel.
When we first arrived, I was a bit concerned about the location because it was further from the center of Panajachel than I thought, but the office can call for a tuk tuk making getting around town very easy and cheap. Panajachel, near the Circus Bar, has exploded into a major nightlife area so I ended up happy that the home was a bit farther from "downtown". It was very quiet and peaceful and the tuk tuk rides were fun.
I wished we could have stayed longer and I would absolutely stay there again.
