About Barbara Votava

Our 'home away from home' is our favorite place to be but of necessity we need to be in the States 6 months of the year. That is the reason for the availability of our Villa from June 7 to December 27.

Barbara Votava purchased this villa in 2000

Why Barbara Votava chose Boquete

When we first visited Boquete on a tour in 2000 we only had a few days but found it captivating. After looking around at available real estate, we decided that it was definitely where we would like to spend a lot of time. Our travels have taken us many interesting and inviting places but for us, this place had just what we wanted. We have seen a lot of changes in the past ten years with an influx of people from all over the world that feel the same as we do. We have never been sorry that we decided as we did.

What makes this villa unique

The facilities are all first class. You can mingle with the locals or get to know neighbors and other visitors. There is great ease of access to so many stimulating and interesting activities. Everything is there for you to use as you so desire. Includes Hi-speed internet and Roku entertainment box for English TV.

We would stay there again and again!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the house that are on the website are nice. However, the actual house is much more beautiful in person. We couldn't believe how spacious it was inside and on the back porch!

We felt like we were staying in a home away from our home with all of the comforts of comfortable beds, nice towels, hot water, fully stocked kitchen (not with food, but with utensils, dishes, appliances, etc.)

The property manager was available at a moment's notice when the propane tank ran out.

The neighborhood was quiet with breath taking views and friendly neighbors. Morning walks were one of our favorite things to do. The rushing river in the back was a beautiful sound as we spent a lot of time sitting on the back porch visiting with each other.

One of my wife's favorite amenities in the house was the amazing washer and dryer!

The hotel reception area with the pool and other amenities was super! The desk help was very friendly and accommodating.

We hope this home is available next time we travel to the area. In the meantime, we will recommend it to anyone we hear might be heading that way!

Barbara, a pleasure to have stayed in your home. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Owner's Response: It is a pleasure to hear how our clients enjoyed their visit in our villa, Jeff. I am happy that you loved it as much as we do for all the same reasons. It sounds like your Boquete stay was memorable and that you hope to return. The same hospitality will be there for you when that time comes.

Cozy, tasteful and stunning views

  • 5 of 5

For four weeks we called this villa home, and it truly was. The view from the veranda is breathtaking and a great place to enjoy your morning coffee and watch the hummingbirds flit around. The local coati, who is not afraid of people. would visit on occasion and we fed him pieces of bread. The staff at the gate was always friendly and helpful and the grounds are a true Garden of Eden. I can't recommend this villa and it's location highly enough.

Beautiful gated community

  • 5 of 5

It seems our first visit to Panama was during the rainy season, but it didn't matter - we still loved it! The best part was that there these villas seemed pretty much empty. We had the whole neighborhood to ourselves, which was pretty nice.

If you go during the rainy season like we did, be sure to get the fans going and open the windows as soon as you get there. The humidity is high and with no air, the sheets and pillows and everything feel slightly damp until the airflow gets moving.

Loved the area and had a great time. Gloria helped get us over to the place and showed us around.

Best stay ever

  • 5 of 5

This villa is so well equipped it was such a blessing staying there. Beautifully decorated and comfortable. We could have stayed on if not for the owners returning for dry season. The hosts Barbara and Bill are great. We met them prior to moving in and they even had us over for dinner, wonderful people. The property manager, Gloria, was very nice and extremely responsive if something came up, which rarely did during our 6 months stay.

Roomy and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Valle Escondido 6 was a great hub for our group of 6. The villa had plenty of room for everyone, a great kitchen and a fantastic deck to eat meals. We had a coati come visit us on the deck our last day there. It was clearly not his first visit there as he tried to make his way into the kitchen. We were glad to have a car. Though Valle Escondido is very close to town, many of the activities we wanted to do (waterfall hikes, horseback riding with Franklin's, tour of Dos Jefes coffee farm, ziplining with Boquete Tree Trek) all really required the use of a car. This villa has loads of movies for the nights when you are wanting some down time! The unit was very clean, comfortable and roomy.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your positive review. We are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Our constant goal is to strive to make Villa 6, Valle Escondido, a premier location in which to enjoy what Boquete and the surrounding area has to offer.

A slice of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for three nights during the last week of December 2015 at his FANTASTIC condo . It was the best condo rental we have ever had. The view of the hidden valley of Bouquete, lush green & spectacular surroundings, fabulous living & bedrooms with classy decor, all appliances and cooking utensils, spacious layout of the property...all added to our pleasant stay there. Barbara (owner) was prompt and caring in making sure the booking and follow-up details went smooth. Gloria, the care taker, was actually waiting for us in the town to take us to the condo. Overall, it was an excellent experience to stay and explore everything Bouquete has to offer.

Thanks Barbara, for sharing with us your slice of paradise. Thanks Gloria for taking care of everything.
