  • Beach Holiday

    "We were looking for a beach getaway for a couple celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and this was the perfect fit. We had the beautiful beach all to ourselves. The water was warm, the sunrises and sunsets beautiful and the neighbors very friendly. The managers on site were more than helpful. The boutique hotel in this gated community served fantastic food and the atmosphere was romantic. The villa was well equipped for the three couples and we enjoyed the privacy of the gated community."

  • Great people and a great place!

    "We loved our stay with Marilyn and Jerry--they were truly wonderful hosts and also became good friends during our stay. They were more than gracious about everything and were extremely helpful in assisting us in finding transportation, and in getting around and planning our trips to the Canal, the enchanting Casco Viejo section of Panama City, and the amazing Artisans' and fish markets. We even enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner on the patio one evening with our hosts, who graciously prepared all the delicious fresh fish we got at the fish market. This property is beautiful with a lovely yard, gorgeous pool and comfortable patio, all facing the Pacific. The view from the apartment is magnificent, and the sound of the waves lulled us to sleep at night. All was clean and very well maintained, and we were a convenient drive from all our tour sites. The Johnsons kindly supplied us with a local-service cell phone and even offered to do some initial grocery shopping for us. They could not have been better hosts and proprietors. Anyone would enjoy staying in this lovely environment away from noise and traffic, and with such marvelous hosts. We will definitely be back to visit Marilyn and Jerry again!"

  • Perfect adventure in paradise

    "We stayed in Cottage 1 for 10 days at the end of January into February. The weather was perfect, warm and sunny, with no rain but nice breezes at all times. The cottage had A/C but we never needed it. The location is excellent and is on 90 acres on both sides of a scenic river. It's quiet and safe at Rio Encantado, yet you are only 20 minutes from Boquete for shopping and cultural interactions. The weather in Boquete is cooler, rainy or misty much of the time, and quite windy, so we found Rio Encantado to be just right for us. The cottage was beautifully appointed and well made with an excellent kitchen and a gorgeous hand-built shower. The patio had a direct view of Volcan Baru, and we spent many mornings and evenings watching the changing light, rainbows, and stars above the volcano. The pool at Rio Encantado is stellar, clean, with no smell of chlorine. It's big enough to swim laps, yet has a shallow end where you can relax and sit. Walking paths are throughout the property which is beautifully landscaped with many mature tropical beauties. The owner, Frank, is thoughtful, interesting, and just a fine person who loves Panama and cares about the people and culture. We've stayed in many VRBO homes in other Latin American countries and this place is by far the best. Some days we stayed at Rio Encantado and others we drove up into the mountains to hike and it was all just fabulous. You can't go wrong at this place."

  • NYE In Panama

    "My husband and I welcomed in 2015 on a sandy beach in Playa Serena, listening to the waves and watching the incredible fireworks under swaying palm trees. Yes, it was pretty much perfect! We rented Steve & Diane's condo for a month and thoroughly had a great time. All the amenities of home were provided, wi fi, magic jack, cable, dvd's and a well appointed kitchen. The bonus was having almost immediate access to the beach, the long walks every morning kept us in shape and the continuous dips in the ocean and pool were so refreshing. It became a tradition with a few of us to bring cocktails and appies and meet on the beach at 5:30 for the sunset, not to hard to take. Shopping and restaurants are only a 10 minute car ride and we discovered some good local spots as well, check out the fish market in Gorgona, excellent sea bass and shrimp. Spectacular views abound, day trips to Valle, Panama City and other attractions are very convenient. If you are looking for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all spot, this is it."
