Experience all the beauty of the Panama Highlands from this charming Spanish colonial home near Boquete. It is called Casa Buena Vista for a reason: the view of the canyon, Volcan Baru and the sunset from the expansive covered terrace are incredible. Enjoy the multitude of birds chirping and flying nearby, and the sound of the river, while relaxing in total privacy. Canyon breezes help keep the house cool, while a wind screen minimizes the breeze on the terrace itself. The terrace includes both a large dining area as well as another area with lovely wood furniture for relaxing.
The house is spacious and modern, with plenty of space for family members to unwind. HIgh wood covered ceilings and wrought iron chandeliers provide Spanish charm. The sala (living room) is flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows that face the canyon. It features a fireplace, bay windows and 2 separate seating areas. The library has extensive bookcases and 2 areas for computers. The kitchen includes a breakfast bar and adjoins a large dining room. There is an additional fireplace which can accommodate a barbecue attached to the kitchen.
The master suite opens to the veranda and features a king size bed and built in cabinetry using elegant local hardwoods. The second bedroom has a queen bed and more hardwood cabinetry. A guest bathroom is nearby. A third bedroom is currently unfurnished but could be set up as a bedroom if needed.
The house is very accessible to both David and Boquete. It is only two minutes off the main highway, but feels a world away. As is common in this area, the access road is dirt, but can be negotiated in any type of car. The town of Boquete is 7 minutes away, and David 25 minutes. The house is in the district of Alto Boquete, and a supermarket and hardware store are about 5 minutes away, as are a few shops and restaurants.
Casa Buena Vista is bordered on two sides by the canyon. A beautiful fence separates the house from the attractive homes on the other two sides. The yard features extensive tropical plantings which are maintained by the gardener weekly. Casa Buena Vista has its own electric gate. There is covered parking for two cars just outside the house.
Ceiling fans are present in most of the rooms. The bedrooms, sala, and dining room also have individual remote controlled air conditioners. A full size washer and dryer and utility sink are situated in a large laundry room.
The house is well furnished with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. The couches and chairs are of quality construction, and upholstered in leather. Accessories have been added to make you feel at home, with pillows on the chairs, tasteful lighting and rugs, a quilt for the couch, and modern artwork. The house has satellite internet at a capacity to allow video streaming.
This house is situated in an ideal micro climate. The Bajareque (or mist) that is quite prevalent in Boquete town does not reach this area. Why stay in the mist of Boquete when you can go just outside of town and experience a lot more sunshine, while still being in comfortable temperatures? And you can spend the days you are not out exploring relaxing on your terrace, in total privacy, experiencing the nature of the canyon that is only a few feet away!!
