Boquete View House! Walk to Downtown!

Bedrooms 3
Space 1,300 sq ft
Property type bungalow
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

3 bd/1ba with stunning views. Specializing in comfort with experienced hosts.

Completely remodeled and newly furnished. Quiet neighborhood up the hill from downtown. 3 bed/1 bath house is just a 5-7 minute walk to central Boquete. Sweeping view of boquete valley. Granite countertops custom stone tile in bath, stainless steel fridge. The home has two queen sized beds in the first two bedrooms. 3rd bedroom has bunk bed with full size bed below and twin size bed on top bunk. Two flat screen TV's (living and master) with cable and high speed internet. Master suite has a "smart" TV. Full size washer / dryer in separate laundry room. Front and rear patios. 450 gallon back up water tank - just in case city water goes out. Several acres of land used for growing vegetables. Don't miss out on all the activities in town- save on car rental and enjoy this centrally located home for your vacation. Within a very short walking distance: Boquete Brewing Company, Art Cafe', Panamonte' Inn, Town Square and other amenities.

We also want to let you know that Panama is a developing country undergoing a transformation as it modernizes it's infrastructure. Boquete is also impacted by this construction as it seeks to add new water/sewer lines. While our street has been "finished" earlier this year- they did add gravel to our road so it is a steep and slow climb up in any vehicle. We strongly advise renting an SUV if you choose to rent a car in Boquete. Lot's of potholes about town & many unpaved roads.. Also- all the construction tends to rile up the neighborhood dogs which exist EVERYWHERE in Boquete. Including our street. They do bark -sometimes at odd hours. We have included a sound dampening machine and new ear plugs if needed. This also helps with the rooster's that crow in Boquete every morning early. :-).

About Brett Korsgaard

We used to live in Panama and consider it our 2nd home. We visit with our family as often as we can and consider Boquete our favorite place in Panama.

Brett Korsgaard purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Brett Korsgaard chose Boquete

This home is a traditional home in a quiet neighborhood right above downtown boquete. The home has been meticulously renovated to provide modern amenities and comforts. New bedding and 400 thread count sheets make your stay especially comfortable. Walk to dining options at the Art Cafe', Sugar & Spice, La Posada, Retrogusto, Boquete Brewing company or the Panamonte inn. Enjoy the beautiful view of the valley below.

What makes this bungalow unique

We fell in love with the home because it has such a great floor plan. Single story and with open kitchen that looks out over the boquete valley. We love that we can walk to the Boquete Brewing Company, The Art Cafe', The Panamonte' Inn, the main square and other dining options without calling a cab. Also, we are able to offer reliable high speed internet because of our proximity to downtown. The home features two new flatscreen TV's (one is a smart TV for internet as well).

Cozy home central to Boquete

  • 5 of 5

Cozy home nestled on a hill overlooking Boquete. Home very clean and comfortable, full of amenities. Walking distance to town shops and short drive to amazing hikes and other must-see's and must-do's in Boquete. Hosts were extraordinarily helpful from check-in through getting oriented to the town to departure.

A nice homey house!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay in Boquete! Our first night was a little noisy with the dogs carrying on but we got used to it. Donn and Andrea were extremely helpful, even after we left and had questions about getting to our next destination! Thank you so much!

Lovely Home with Amazing View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Boquete. It was quite obvious that the owner Brett and the property managers Donn and Andrea take pride in the home, as it was very clean, comfortable, and well-kept. The house has a stunning view and a gentle breeze passing through, keeping a perfect temperature. The kitchen was not the typical hodgepodge of dishes and utensils, but actually held practical items and matching sets of dishes. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the bathroom rivaled a bathroom in the US. The washer and dryer were a godsend since we were determined to hike, even in the rain. The welcome basket was a very pleasant surprise, as were the other touches like ample/fluffy towels, nightlights, bottle opener, cold medicine, bottled water, sealed/odor preventing trashcans, an umbrella. . . Yes, we were in a third world country, but these additions gave us a little touch of home. Donn and Andrea were extremely knowledgeable about the home and the area and provided so much helpful information. They were very prompt in responding to any questions we had and obviously delight in being helpful. We would certainly stay here again. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!

Truly charming house and fantastic location with attentive owner and caretakers

  • 5 of 5

While in Panama City, Panama visiting family in August, we decided to make a quick trip to Boquete, a small wonderful town in Chiriqui Province where I used to vacation with my family during summer breaks growing up in Panama.

Brett's listing immediately caught our attention! The house is in a fantastic location, just a short walk to the center of town, with easy access to restaurants, pharmacy, groceries and multiple activities. Our stay could not have been more perfect! The caretakers, Don and Andrea, were easily accessible via phone, email and WhatsApp. When we arrived at the house it was spotlessly clean and fully equipped with everything we needed, including a welcoming basket with fresh fruit and a bottle of wine. We traveled with two teenagers; this house was the perfect size for a group/family of 4-5 people, never feeling crowded and providing sufficient space for all, with comfortable bedrooms, views of the mountains, a nice patio and a beautiful yard. A note to light sleepers: Boquete has always been an agricultural town with people connected to the coffee plantations, families escaping the heat from David on weekends, and regular folks going about their normal routine. It is a REAL village where you may hear roosters early in the morning, dogs barking at night, and children chatting on their way to or from school. The host thoughtfully added a noise canceling machine to the master bedroom, but for us closing the windows worked just fine one particular night, and it did not detract from the wonderful experiences we had during our stay.

I strongly recommend Brett's house in Boquete and would not hesitate to book a stay in the future.

Nice and Relaxing Stay

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The scenery was beautiful and the house was very clean and comfortable. When we first arrived I was a little worried about the walk to the town and shopping area but we decided to give it a try and it really wasn't as far as it first seemed. The trip back to the house is a little harder because it's mainly up-hill but it is still very doable. However they provide you with the numbers of taxi drivers that are very nice and fair price. The restaurants were all very good. We really liked eating breakfast and lunches at the Sugar and Spice cafe. I would recommend this property.
