Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We loved the villa. Very spacious, clean and a lovely balcony. We appreciated having a kitchen that was well supplied with utensils, dishes and pans. Only complaint - hard beds.

Property great. Property manager frightening.

  • 1 of 5

This is a high end property in a gorgeous development. However, it is managed by an unprofessional real estate management company in a remote location thousands of miles from the property. It took about 20 more emails than necessary to secure the property months in advance of our travel date. (In example, they use AOL as their email service which could not receive attachments they were asking me to return to them.) This was annoying, but what happened next was a nightmare. Two days before we were set to fly 5 sisters and my 92 year old mother from all over the USA to Boquete, Panama, the management company cancelled our reservation, leaving us without accommodations and unable to secure another house for our group. I had to threaten legal action to force the company to honor our lease contract. To which they responded by requiring me to sign an addendum to the contract that disallowed me from holding them responsible for any prior, current OR FUTURE liability for contract performance. Being held hostage, traveling in 24 hrs., I signed whatever they wanted me to, not knowing whether I had the house until we actually arrived. For about 48 hours I thought the whole thing was a sham, since they had double charged my credit card for the price of the rental week.

The house itself was very nice except for poor internet service. We also needed to repair their patio sliding door so we could use it and not leave the property vulnerable. (Their repair person could not be located in a timely manner.) On the tail end of the trip, we were equally unhappy with the check out process in that they chose to charge us for missing hand towels that we did not remove (or even see while there) at the cost of replacing 4 WHOLE sets of overpriced towels. The contract guaranteed return of the deposit within 10 days, which we have still not seen at 2 weeks. As a consumer and a 30 year real estate veteran, trust me, ... NEVER rent a property managed by these people.

Peaceful Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed for 9 nights over the holiday season. The condo was spacious, extremely well and equipped and immaculate. There were plenty of towels, linens and kitchenware. We spent a lot of time on the covered balcony eating meals, bird watching and just enjoying the amazing weather of Boquete. On New Year's Eve we sat on the balcony and watched a dozen different firework displays going off throughout the valley - that alone was worth the trip! The Villa is a short walk into town (10-15 minutes) so a car is not necessary. The Valle Escondido Resort is well maintained and beautiful but if you like to sleep in you may not appreciate the gardeners starting up the weed wackers at 7:30 am to do golf course maintenance. We highly recommend this property to others and should we return to Boquete will stay here again.

Fantastic Villa for stay in Boquete spring 2015

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa for two weeks in the Spring of 2015 as a family with 3 children and had no previous contact with the owner before this rental. The villa was exactly as advertised, perfectly clean and in a beautiful location on the outskirts of Boquete. The security was very good, and the gate guards, while polite and friendly, looked us over carefully every time we returned. The town is about a 10 minute walk down a paved street. Simone, the owner, arranged for us to purchase guest cards for the hotel spa facilities which included pool and a really nice gym, sauna and locker room. There is a small bar and restaurant at the hotel, which is about a 3 minute walk, and a well maintained golf course is part of the complex. Several restaurants are within a 5 minute walk. Boquete loses power for short periods (~10 minutes) twice a week or so, and similarly, the Internet goes down for short periods occasionally, but that has nothing to do with the Villa. It is recommended that you get an emergency contact number with the rental in case you have a question or need to know where something is, though the Villa is equipped with flashlights and lots of small maintenance stuff like screwdrivers, pliers, spare batteries and flashlights. In short, we had a great time in Boquete, in no small part because our accommodations in this beautiful property were so good. Highly recommended. We will return as soon as we can!
