Property Description

There are two houses on the same piece of land separated by the garden.

Each house has two big rooms with bathroom each with private terrace. Big kitchen and living area. Tropical garden. Quiet nights!

The best place to relax after the exciting discovery of Tikal.

The walls of both houses are constructed 60% of natural limestone and 40% block. This keeps the whole interior cool. The limestone absorbs the heat during the day and emits it during the night.

At a three-minute walk there is the biggest shopping mall of the area with a big supermarket, Pizza Hut and different shops and restaurants.

In one house lives Dieter Richter, a German architect specialized in Mayan architecture, who worked in different Mayan sites in restoration. He and his Guatemalan wife Eva will take care of your stay and will give you any important information for your tours.

    This stay is underpriced. Lets keep it our secret but the TUK-tuks are close by and only a 1.50 or so. The tourist bars are about a mile or so its a quite nights sleep. The hosts are the friendliest, coolest people we met in Guatemala or Belize on our last trip. I'm staying here next time if they are entertaining guests. I can see how they advertise on Hostel world as the rooms can be shared in this larger house. Its a house rental in my opinion for a great rate, and near a lot of good food.

    So glad we stayed at this gem of a place! Dieter and his wife and such wonderful generous people, regularly giving us lifts into Flores town. Dieter is so knowledgeable about Tikal and we learnt far more from him than the tour guide at the site. Felt like we were staying with friends, couldn’t recommend highly enough

    Amazing! What a stay, Dieter and Eva were fantastic and made us feel extremely welcome in their home. They both went above and beyond what we expected, having dinners with us, booking Tikal and educating us, taking us to play basketball, trips into Flores and much much more. Three dogs on the property who were extremely friendly and great for security. The room was great! We would highly recommend staying here!

    We had an amazing time at Casa Tikal. Dieter is very hospitable and went above and beyond including driving us places and taking us out for dinner. This made the location (which is not on the island of flores where most of the touristy things are) no issue at all. It is quite hard to find the house, so you really need to let Dieter pick you up from wherever you arrive (a sign out the front would be helpful). There's lots of space in the room, beautiful dogs and Dieter's legendary Tikal info sesh

    I was particularly fortunate in that the owners, Dieter and Eva, had such fun and interesting discussions about Tikal. We went to Flores for each of my 3 nights stay for dinner. Very caring and considerate given I was traveling on my own. I would strongly recommend here for anyone not needing a lively atmosphere but with a great interest in hearing Dieter’s research about the temples etc at Tikal. They both have great senses of humour and the dogs are great too! Charles

    If you’re going to Tikal, you really need to stay here. The property is located in St. Elena (just over the causeway from Flores) and it’s gorgeous. Beautiful gardens surround lovely rooms with three lovable canines keeping guard all night (the dogs sleep outside). Very clean, very nice bathrooms and beds. Nice kitchen, multiple courtyards. The owners, Dieter and Eva, are lovely people who were kind enough to join us for dinner and breakfast. Dieter’s knowledge of Tikal is worth the trip alone!

    Dieter and Eva are so lovely, you will have true hospitality here. There are a fair few bugs around the room but hey this is Guatemala. Hot water worked well and they gave us each a fan. Beds are BIG. We never got the Wi-Fi working whilst we were here as our phones couldnt get the signal. Not sure if this is normal. We paid 15 quetzal for a taxi from flores island but you probably could get less. Eva drove us in and out multiple times too. For a personal touch we definitely recommend this place!
