About Lynn and Jerry Longbons
We moved to this area in 2006 from the mountains of Western Colorado and now share it with our four dogs and one cat, as well as a myriad of resident birds. We spend time gardening, socializing with other gringos in the area, hiking, biking and beach combing and boogie boarding at nearby Playa la Barqueta (and, of course, feeding the birds).
Lynn and Jerry Longbons purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Lynn and Jerry Longbons chose Boqueron
We purchased in this location because of it's proximity to outdoor activities here in Cuesta de Piedra as well as the nearby rainforests and beaches. It's a temperate climate that is warm during the day and cool enough to need a light blanket for sleeping at night. We do not receive the strong winds that affect both Volcan and Boquete during our Summer months.
What makes this Townhome unique
We are fortunate to have mostly cows for neighbors and incredible bird watching almost every day. Our Panamanian neighbors are friendly and this area is clean and well maintained. The water is potable from the faucet and there is plenty of it.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Great little place to stay. comfortabke and well equipped.
Loved our time at Birders Paradise. The Longbons are great host. The home is more spacious then the pictures portray and the surrounding property beautifully landscaped. I had to push myself to leave the property to explore, more spcefically the back deck. I could have spent my entire time taking in the view and spotting and identifying birds. But we did take several trips to Volcan and Cerro Punta. We hired a guide from Eco Tours to see the Quetzals and saw several, I highly recommend. We also enjoyed eating dinner at Fannies in Volcan. There’s also a great little wine and coffee shop in Volcan, I think it’s call Black Mountain Coffee Roasters they also serve lunch. I hope I can come back and stay longer.
Gorgeous Property Teeming with Birdlife
"Birders' Paradise" was indeed just that! As birders, we couldn't have been more pleased. Our hosts, Jerry and Lynn, have feeders that attract many different species. You'll love when the Fiery-billed Aracaris arrive, the Crested Oropendolas and Motmots. The Crested Guan was a regular on the property as well as numerous tanagers, flycatchers and hummingbirds.
We enjoyed a spectacular show by the Swallow-tailed Kites... swooping above us carrying nesting material as breeding season was well underway.
The location itself is very appealing- a short walk to Macho de Monte Canyon and close to Volcan for all the amenities it offers including some very good restaurants. The apartment was very comfortable, downstairs and upstairs ( staircase required). The balcony upstairs offered a great spot for meals, birdwatching and enjoying the beautiful surrounding vista.
Our hosts, Lynn and Jerry, were very generous and accommodating and we enjoyed our stay with them immensely.
We so enjoyed hosting these genuinely wonderful people, and are happy that they had a good visit to this part of Panama. Come back anytime! 💕�
Awesome, peaceful place!
This property exceeded our expectations in every way. Friendly and accommodating hosts, gorgeous grounds and views, comfortable beds and places to sit, fully equipped kitchen. Very clean and neat and safe. Birds galore and 3 sweet dogs to greet us every day. Felt like home!
Definitely a place for birders!
We luckily found this place, and it was available with a very short notice. 👍
It was perfect with some easy birding. Start on the balcony with your breakfast and get the first parrots, aracari and tanagers on your list, afterwards you can just take a walk in the garden and see more than 40 species of birds in a couple of hours. Best part the birding seems to be even better late afternoon/evening.
If you want more you can visit the nearby Birders Paradise in Paraíso, here we had more than 100 species of birds in one morning.
The house is very luxurious, WiFi is working very well, lots of hot water and a very big kitchen. Be sure to bring food as there is not much to get close by.
We would definitely like to come back.
Great Place to Relax and watch the birds
We had a great time at Jerry and Lynn's birding paradise. The apartment is set up to allow you see the outdoors from almost any place you are at and the viewing deck on the second floor was great. It is just outside of the town of Volcan but close enough to travel in for supplies and meals. The grounds here are beautifully kept and on any given day you can just just on your deck and watch the bird show. We loved this location and we fell into a nice relaxing stay while here. Thank you for your hospitality
Thanks so much for taking the time to write your review, much appreciated! It was our pleasure to host your time in our area of Chiriqui and we’re happy that you enjoyed your visit. The bird show is just getting started, right now there are twelve blue-gray tanagers at the feeder pecking away at the bananas on our feeder. Presently we are giving the local birds 30 to 35 bananas every day and that number is just going to increase as the birds migrate through Panama. Thanks again, Jerry and Lynn
P.S. Congratulations on the Red Sox win in the World Series!
The owners were incredibly likeable & iwere gracious hosts. Apartment and grounds were beyond our expectations as was the birding!
From David airport: exit left from airport and go 3.4 km, turn left at the stop light and drive past McDonalds to the next stop light where you will turn left onto the Pan-American highway. Stay on this road for about 21 km to the town of Concepcion where you will turn right onto the Via Volcan. Look for the green sign indicating 'Volcan'. Drive another 20km to Cuesta de Piedra and turn right. Just before you get to the turn for Cuesta de Piedra the road will curve to the left and you will see a church on a hill surrounded by radio towers straight ahead. You will pass some very brightly colored houses on your right and there will be a road that t's off to the right. Turn there and go until just past the 2K marker on the right side of the road, our house is entered at the drive just past this marker, turning to your left. There will be a large black iron gate and a sign 'Residencia Longbons'. You're there! Coming from Boquete you will drive towards David and turn right at the Terpel gas station onto the new road to Volcan. Follow the signs to Cuesta de Piedra and notice that there are kilometer markers along the side of the road. Our place is located on the right just before the 2 kilometer marker. You'll see a cream colored column and that marks our driveway. It's a sharp turn coming from that direction so you'll need to swing wide to make the turn. Honk or use the intercom and we'll open the gate.
