Property description

Enjoy paradise in this darling 'casita' situated on the grounds of one of the most admired private properties in downtown Boquete.

The cozy, comfy and convenient one-room guest cottage sits behind a charming wrought iron gate overlooking a beautiful bubbling stream.

The 'casita' is stocked with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster-oven, electric kettle and coffee maker - the basics for preparing breakfast or a light meal.

The casita is easily accessible- no stairs, walk in shower. It is not wheel chair accessible, however.

Walk to language school, restaurants & cafes, shopping, golf course, eco-touring, transportation! Or just hang out in the hammock, listening to the running stream.

The setting is perfect for a romantic weekend, a week of Spanish language immersion, or a longer visit to explore all of the region.

If you are considering a move to Panama, I would be happy to answer questions and give you some 'insider' tips.

I am an artist, working in multimedia- acrylics, oil, fiber, collage, polymer clay. I give classes from time to time in my home studio.

My late husband, Mort, founded Morton's Bakehouse, a well known artisan bakery in Alto Boquete. I am continuing his legacy, running the bakery. A delicious fresh bread awaits you!

Maggie, my sweet Labradoodle, and I look forward to welcoming you as our honored guests.


A brief listing of some local festivals and events:

November - a month of celebrations. Panamanian Independence Day Parades. Local celebrations in Boquete are colorful, fun, with parades of darling school children dressed in beautiful costumes.

December - Christmas and New Years celebrations, parades and displays

January - The International Boquete Flower and Coffee Fair. Music events at night are, regrettably, noisy throughout the entire valley - bring ear plugs! The flowers bloom all season! Generally held the third week in January.

February - World-Class Jazz & Blues on the slopes of Volcan Baru, in February. This is a great event - getting bigger and better each year.

March - Orchid Fair in Boquete - professional and amateur growers vie for gold medals. Generally held end of March, beginning of April at the Fair Grounds.
