There were 4 adults that stayed Matt's house in Panajchel. We enjoy renting houses rather than hotels when traveling and Matt's was the nicest house we have ever rented. A beautiful and safe haven. We arrived a bit early so we made our lunch and enjoyed the front patio and yard. The house is very comfortable. Matt pays a lot of attention to details from interesting decorations to fresh flowers greeting you in all areas. He had left us a fruit in the basket and a cell phone available. The kitchen was a dream to work out of nice, everything you need, plus had pretty dishes and glasses. Coffee maker, hot water pot, tea pot and blender. There was a 5 gallon jug of fresh water for us to use as well as a few basic spices. We also took advantage of the washer and did a couple of loads of wash. So nice to park our car and van inside the gates. We felt very safe and would stay here again in a heart beat! A great price too!
Thank you so much, it was was good having you stay, thanks for being great guests. Abrazo,Matt

We stayed in Matt's other house in Lanquin near Semuc Champey some time back, and after being very happy with the way Matt treated us, and also very happy with his house we decided on our return to Guatemala to stay in Casa solhana in Panajachel.
The house has been beautifully renovated, with attention to detail that makes it cozy and practical. We thought the house might be a little out of town. However all 6 of us young and old found it perfectly located, being very close to the lake shore and only a short Tuc tuc ride from town. The area is very quiet, and the people in the surrounding area seemed really friendly to us. The showers were the best we had in Guatemala. We will return. Thanks Matt, see you again we hope. Sammy.
