Welcome to The Seed, a one of a kind, luxury eco-estate. This is a rare chance to step into a readymade sustainable lifestyle and business on Lake Atitlan. A 10,000m2 estate in the vibrant community of Tzununá, Guatemala, The Seed has been a labour of love; designed, built and planted by The Moth. Among verdant grounds and mature edible and medicinal gardens, you will find a spectacular main villa, two cottages, a rooftop yoga shala, a traditional Mayan sauna, natural plunge pool and a staff room – all fully functioning as a family home and holiday rental, with a personally trained team of local cooks, gardeners and housekeepers. Its creators are now looking to pass The Seed and all its gifts to new owners.
When you buy The Seed, you acquire The Seed’s lovingly cultivated gardens offer sanctuary, privacy, medicine and organic garden-to-table dining – exquisitely prepared by personally trained local chefs. They are exceptionally maintained by a dedicated gardener and caretaker, and there is a gardener’s casita on-site. From avocado to aloe vera, bananas to berries, sapote to spinach, we’re blessed with 2.5 acres of tropical plants, fruits, herbs and vegetables, wild-grown and cultivated across mature permaculture gardens and greenhouses.
Here you will find a massage cabin hidden amongst the raspberries, a chemical-free plunge pool – fed by our spring water well and, in turn, feeding the gardens – and our temazcal, a modern interpretation of a traditional Mayan sauna, created using traditional bajareque construction techniques and multi-functioning as a sound dome. The grounds are also home to a handmade beautiful outdoor shower and dry toilet, as well as covered parking for two cars.
Above the cultivated gardens is more sweeping mountainside forest, offering room for expansion or development.
You will find The Seed in Tzununá, a traditional Kaqchiquel village and burgeoning alternative community with yoga, ecstatic dance and a permaculture school on the shores of landmark Lake Atitlan. Our neighbouring village, San Marcos La Laguna, is renowned for its alternative community and spiritual classes, courses and events, plus two esteemed Waldorf schools.
With excellent schooling nearby, a family-centric community on its doorstep and a true abundance of outdoor activities, organic food and opportunities for education and play on its land, The Seed is perfectly placed for families to move straight into a conscious, self-sufficient lifestyle.
