This experience was far better than I could have imagined. Armand and Kathrine welcomed me from day one, and it was like hanging out with family. We had lots of great convos over AMAZING delicious vegan meals and it was an awesome exchange of my skills and their kindness and hospitality. My room had lake and volcano views, I was able to use all the amenities of the lodge, and I had plenty of time to enjoy the lake! I did tons of photos for them and even helped Armand with some personal branding, two things I LOVE doing. I can't wait to visit them again, hopefully soon! Gracias! :)

My stay at Armands place was great
I had a change of mind/plans as I arrived to Atitlan, and ended up staying shorter than agreed, but the time spent there was good and I felt very welcome at all times
The property is so beautiful
The views are stunning
The room is very comfortable
The cats are the best :)

Volunteering in Atitlan Sunset Lodge was definitely a highlight of our trip to Guatemala! Armand greeted us with a dinner and was super friendly at all times, it was so beautiful to stay in his lodge, have the most amazing views and be inspired to create content for his social media accounts! Thanks again for your hospitality and a chance to live by the most beautiful lake in the world! We won't forget this! Gaile&Monika

Working with Armand was legendary. He has a great vision to do business. The apartment was awesome, the views on the lake and the volcano were amazing!

Mi experiencia en Atitlán Sunset Lodge fue inolvidable. Fue mi primera vez haciendo voluntariado y la verdad es que jamás olvidaré todo lo que viví las pasadas dos semanas.
Armand hizo que me sintiera como en casa, aprendí muchísimas cosas y siempre estuvo abierto a mis ideas con respecto al trabajo.
Todo el equipo que trabaja en Sunset es genial: Andrés, Luis, María, Domingo y Manuela me hicieron sentir en casa. Armand tiene un corazón de oro y mucha sabiduría que compartir sobre la vida y el medioambiente. Llegué sin nada y me fui con una familia. Gracias por todo, espero verlos pronto. 🤍😊🙏🏻
