Nice clean space on the end of town (but close to everything - it’s a small town). Great views of Atitlan. Nice shared balconies to view from. Duncan was a good host and answered all my questions

Araminta's place is exactly as described: a sanctuary. There may be some tuk-tuks that drive by on occasion, but the view/space/location are all amazing. A great place to be based out of to explore San Marcos & Lake Atitlan.

Excellent location, only a short walk to San Marcos centre. Tranquil and relaxing, excellent place to spend the afternoon in a hammock enjoying the beautiful views of the lake. Duncan was lovely and very accommodating.

Walkable distance from the main San Marcos dock, but you still feel secluded from all the noise. There’s only three rooms, which makes it feel super private. Duncan was super nice helping us out and making us feel like home recommended.

We really enjoyed the amazing views from the chill area of the house. Also the communal living area and kitchen are great and very big. The bedroom was also very big and looked better then in the pictures. We felt right at home here!
