One word - Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We were visiting family in La Chorrera and decided to book a home that was away from the normal beach houses that we normally stay at when in Panama. What a perfect home for a family gathering, reunion, wedding, or simply entertaining and relaxing. As others have said, the climate is amazing! Warm but with steady breezes kept it comfortable all the time. The house, location, gardens, horse stables, everything was so beautiful and well maintained. Tons of space everywhere and all very comfortable. Several covered and open outdoor porches, plenty of tables to have meals at, the pool table, and of course, the indoor pool and openness of the entire home. The rooms were set up with plenty of beds and space for families to sleep comfortably. And of course, Annabel, the resident housekeeper who was a huge help in the kitchen as well as around the home. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect for our group as a team retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We used this place for a team retreat for our staff and it was wonderful! Tons of space and interesting things to see and do on the property and in the town. It came with a lady who was attending to our needs. She helped us with cooking and cleaning and she was a sweetheart. It wasn't clear in the contract until I submitted our rental request that she was part of the rental and we had to agree to pay an additional $100 to her but it was worth it. I would also add that the description says the house can sleep 18. I would say that depends on how you arrange your guests. We were very comfortable with 15 people but any more and it would have been too much. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed this place.

A really amazing and comfortable house perfect for all ages

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my stay. It was 8 adults and 4 children (including a baby) and we were all very comfortable. Most of the rooms hve full bathrooms inside, it has different places and ambiances to eat. Al fresco in a terrace, inside looking at the backyard, at the backyard, in front of the pool etc. Breeze was lovely and we even cooked at the fireplace/bbq outside and also the grill indoors.

Also the backyard property was beautiful and it includes animals for the kids to watch and a lot of room to play and run.

All in all a truly amazing house and i would love to comeback soon. Excellent!!

Jaw-dropping, one-of-a-kind, amazing house

  • 5 of 5

This house is special. It comes with a ~500 sq meter common space that has a pool, grill, living room, and bar all in one room. It also has 3-4 lovely outdoor patios with tons of grass beyond, and 6 dogs that live outside in the yard! They know not to come inside, and are well trained.

Luis, the owner, was very helpful in helping us customize our experience. His maid, Anabel, was very helpful all weekend as well.

For a large group, this house couldn't be better!

Incredible Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying at Luis' house. It was such a unique and beautiful home. It's the ideal place for a group of people. The entire property is gorgeous and we loved the dogs. The staff was incredibly kind and helped us with anything we needed. We hope we can go back and stay there again. It was so great!
