About the Property

Private 2 bedroom,1 bath Home located deep within a coffee and avocado estate.

First! Click "Video" on the main page and see the details of the complete privacy you will enjoy while communing with Nature in this 942 sf. ft. home. Built in 2014, the Alba Verde Guest House includes a full-size kitchen with large natural stone table capable of seating 6. Two large well-appointed bedrooms each offer a queen size bed, down comforters, high quality linens and private closet. Each bedroom has it's own private patio where one can soak in the beauty of sunrises and sunsets while surrounded by birds, butterflies and flowers. The spacious bathroom offers a large walk-in rain shower while viewing the myriad of greens outdoors. The spacious open-plan living area boasts cathedral ceilings, beautiful antique furniture, a full-size couch as well as love seat. The ambiance provides a truly comfortable way to enjoy both the 42” flat screen T.V. and endless quantity of DVDs. Wifi is available throughout this lovely home. The many windows all look out on lively beautiful gardens which surround the house. Enjoy the vistas of Volcan Baru and the Cordillera in the distance while sitting in a covered patio. This "meditation patio" allows endless scenery changes as the clouds come in to play. The grounds are filled with coffee, avocado, orange, lime, and banana trees as well as all manner of flowering plants and trees. Enjoy your own private oasis of peace and beauty!

The kitchen includes a large refrigerator, full size gas stove, and the many other appliances one might need. Boquete is known for it's availability of fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, meats and almost anything else one could desire. Having a private full kitchen allows endless opportunities to take full advantage of this while substantially saving precious vacation dollars.

The home is situated at 5000 feet in elevation within a small coffee estate. All the beauty, peace and quiet imaginable is enjoyed while walking the grounds. Located a short 12 minute drive to town, the location is equally close to the best hiking and bird-watching trails in the area.

The owner, a resident of Boquete for the last decade, lives next door and provides a wealth of information and security.
