Best airbnb rental experience yet! If the highest rating is 5 stars, my wife & I would give 6 stars for the beauty of this property's architecture & art and for the attentive care from awesome architect owner Deva. Deva swiftly returns correspondence, works with you to get you settled safely and comfortably (he helped to arrange reliable transport and initial small food supply). Our only regret is we wished we would have made a longer trip. We wanted our 8 nights to turn into several months! Like us, you may not want to leave this gorgeous artist retreat.
Awake with the birds and marvel at sunrise colors wrapping the volcanos. The 1st floor's well-equipped kitchen beckons you to leisurely enjoy a pot of Guatemalan coffee while appreciating the kitchen acoustics, perfect for the music I was working on. The 2nd floor's open room is gorgeous, filled with global art and flanked by floral stain glass windows and doors that lead out to a little terrace with a lake view. A dream space, my yoga teaching wife practiced in the colors of stained glass light, we curled up in a sunlit corner daybed with good books (Deva has many great ones on the book shelves), napped, and did a lot of pausing... taking in the view of that stunning lake. We befriended many neighbors in our short time there. The locals, expats, and tourists all so friendly, helpful, and down-to-earth in this quiet relaxing village of Santa Cruz La Laguna. Our stay at Villa Colores was a magical balance between pure quiet and warm holiday social experiences, as we rented during Christmas, and received a couple of gracious invites for gathering at neighbors' festivities, including a birthday celebration for Deva. Warning: Staying here might convince you to move part or all of your life to Guatemala!
