About Jeannette Bowes
Brian and I retired and moved from Canada in 2006. We spent our first year in Costa Rica. Then we moved and built Villa Bowes, here in Gorgeous Altos del Maria, Panama. We absolutely LOVE it here! Living on the Continental Divide, with awesome views of the Pacific Ocean, Mountains and Valleys. We are living the dream!
Jeannette Bowes purchased this Cottage in 2007
Why Jeannette Bowes chose San Carlos
This property is very special. We designed it ourselves, in a Spanish Mediterranean fashion, this Villa hangs off the side of the Mountain, offering grandiose views and complete privacy. It has every convenience needed for you to enjoy your stay in Paradise;-)
What makes this Cottage unique
Wrap around Terrace with - 360 views, sunrise to sunset, you are on top of the world!

A comfortable cottage with fantastic views
Thiis is a true mountain aerie sitting on a high ridge. The cottage is well equipped and comfotable. Because of its location it can be quite breezy but the keeps it at a pleasant temperature. Jeannette and Brian are great hosts who are always willing to answer question. The Altos del Maria development goes up and down the mountain valley so temperatures near the lower levels can be quite warm. There are several nice swimming along the Rio Maria some close to the road for easy access. A wonderful spot for a quiet getaway.
Getting away from it all
Enjoyed our stay although, when booking did not realize the elevation. Lovely little restaurant just up the road from the Villa. Hired an SUV and would recommend nothing else. Roads very steep at times and a regular car would not make it. Views are wonderful but had some rainy days. Went there for R&R and achieved it. Thanks Jeannett
The perfect w/e casita
Great spot to go visit altos del maria and explore around
Weather here is superb and the views breathtaking
This was our first trip to Panama. We spent a week in the City, and a week at this beautiful cottage. This is a great place to launch your explorations further inland or along the beaches. We were able to visit beaches, as well as further toward the interior (Anton Valley). The views around the cottage are spectacular, and the owners are very responsive and helpful!
The cottage includes everything you need from cooking utensils to cutlery and plates. Everything in the kitchen worked well! They even have a little BBQ outside. Also, the bed was supportive and comfortable.
If you are renting a car, don't bother with the rental agency's GPS... bring your smart phone and use the Waze app. Ended up purchasing a pay as you go SIM card from Claro (while in the City) and had no trouble with 4G service while at the cottage.
If you are considering staying here, just do it! You won't regret it!
MANY THANX! We are looking forward to your next visit!!!!!
Finally, peace and quiet, Tranquilo....The panoramic views, surreal. The songbirds, being above the clouds, hiking trails that are like hidden pearls....And J n B, yes the host, very friendly and jolly....See for yourself....make the trip....I am ready to relocate....
Thank you very much fo your review! Much appreciated! And so glad you enjoyed yourself! And if you do relocate to our area, you would fit right in our beautiful Community! Keep in touch! And hope to see you again here!
Nice, quiet place to relax!
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Bowes. The cottage was neat and clean and nicely appointed. There were sufficient dishes and other kitchenware to make our own breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
The location is somewhat remote, but the views of the Pacific Ocean (from the front) and mountain valleys (from the back) were spectacular. Close to many great hiking trails with lots of interesting birds and beautiful butterflies.
We suggest stopping at one of the larger grocery stores on your way as what is available in the little local stores is limited.
Located 90 minutes from the vibrant city of Panama, 30 minutes from the many Pacific coastal beaches, in the beautiful Mountains of Altos del Maria. Hiking trails with waterfalls and natural swimming hole, work out area, tennis courts, yoga offered five days a week. Come live in Paradise, if only for a wonderful vacation/retreat!
