Property Description

Located in a quiet, rural setting your private accommodations will provide a comfortable base for exploring all the highlands of Panama have to offer. The kitchen is fully equipped with full size appliances, the beds are comfortable with fine linens, and the decks offer quiet areas to unwind. The vistas from floor to ceiling windows in both the upper and lower levels give the feeling of sitting in the trees. Stroll the surrounding lanes that bird watchers from all over the world come to and see exotic birds. One recent guest was amazed to spot 87 species on our property alone (see below for complete list). Expand your search to the nearby hydro-electric dam, within easy walking distance, or to La Amistas and Volcan Baru National Parks, both within easy driving distance. End your day with a peaceful night's sleep enhanced by chirping crickets and flickering fire flies.

I actually have to say I don't think the pictures do justice to this vacation rental. The home and grounds far exceeded my expectations. Spacious, clean, quiet. And the grounds are meticulously and lovingly landscaped. The location is ideal for any wanting to explore what Western Panama has to offer, central to all of the beautiful variety...beaches, cloud forests, hiking, water sports, etc. I have to admit that I am somewhat nervous about having the owners on site when renting, just because you tend to feel you can't totally relax, or you never know what their 'vibe' will be. Lynn and Jerry are the perfect balance of casual invisible/willing concierge, we LOVED them! Do not hesitate to rent this home, you will not be disappointed! (Oh, and the birdwatching onsite is unparallelled!)
