Marni’s Cottages - Boquete Panama
"While living in Playa Coronado, Panama we took a short vacation to Boquete and fell in love with this charming mountain town. We decided we wanted to come back and spend some time to see if this was a place we wanted to settle. Just by chance we happened to see an ad for a home for rent in Volcancito, just 5 minutes from downtown Boquete. After a quick look we rented this quaint home for 2 months.
What a find! This charming “cottage #2”, located on a huge lot with lovely gardens, views and completely private, was perfect. This is not a "rental" property, but the home of a lovely person who is an artist and writer. We settled right in and began enjoying the mountain-town life. While we had a car, we often walked to town (30 minutes - downhill) and then took a taxi home for $3.00.
The home is eclectically decorated including wonderful original art work. It is comfortably furnished with all the amenities you would want- a good assortment of cooking utensils, large flatscreen TV, and lots of seaing areas both inside and out. We were also lucky to have our lovely cleaning lady, Yilka and her husband Osvaldo, who is the gardener. They couldn't have been more helpful or kind. One of the best features of this home is the large wrap around deck. Most mornings and evenings we sat on the deck and watched the exotic birds, stars and the lights of David. Absolutely magical!
If you are looking for a rental that is not the typical sterile rental unit, but a truly warm and charming home - this is it." . . . by Cindy Sadler
Guests have access to the surrounding gardens, the jungle park, large furnished covered terrace w/fireplace and the open air dining area w/ large table, BBQ and fire pit.
Interaction with Guests
I enjoy socialising occasionally with my guests- to share our travelling stories along with some good food and wine.
It is a lovely mix of cultures. It is quiet with country-like beauty and yet minutes from the village. It is very safe.
To get to town, Taxi service is readily available for $3.00 and to walk to town is only a 1/2 hour through lovely scenery (if you are somewhat fit).
Boquete is 1hr. 45 mins to Pacific beach resorts & 3 1/2 hrs to the Caribbean.
2 persons only.
Considerate of other guests.
Absolutely no pets.
Marni is an excellent host. Early on she sended us information about everything we needed to know, pictures of the cottage and what to do in the area. She was very honest and pleasant in her approach and responded very quickly to all our questions. She took good care of the whole process while not being intrusive at all. I would definitely stay with her again.
Maple Cottage is very nicely decorated. The cottage is actually an apartment. I found it to be very noisy and because of this shortened my stay from 5 days to less than 24 hours.
Mr. Bains is the first client that has complained and asked for a refund in the year I have been in business. He was refunded in full for the days that he did not stay with me although this is not standard policy in Boquete- especially in high season. His main complaint was about the refrigerator and the water pump going on and off - both of which are less than one year old. Rather than defending myself, I have posted some of the many wonderful reviews I have received via email. I hope this helps my future guests. Sincerely, Marni
My husband and I recently stayed at Marni's Cottages in Boquete. It was like visiting a cottage in the mountains of France! Marni had created many little areas to watch sunrises and sunsets in her beautiful natural gardens. In the afternoon, you can read in the hammock in the little strip of jungle bordering the property while listen to the many exotic birds. There is a large outdoor table- perfect for artists to work at in natural light or for chefs to entertain under the stars with a fire in the pit glowing beside. Our accommodation was eclectically decorated with lovely original art. The kitchen was well designed and equipped with a window facing the volcano and the orange grove. The living area was very comfortable and featured a large window looking out at the mountains, the Pacific Ocean and at night, the lights of the city of David. We would highly recommend a vacation to Boquete with a relaxing stay at Marni's Cottages. Florence
Good morning Marni,
It is beautiful here and your cottage is very comfortable. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality. Edie and John
We are enjoying the beautiful space to the fullest - to the accompaniment of nature. THANK YOU.
We are enjoying our time in Boquete and especially in the Trillium Cottage. Really cute how you've decorated it. We've met a number of people in town who know u when we mention your name. Seems like u have a good reputation here.
Loving the Maple Cottage, Marni - so nice and peaceful, and I love how clean and artistically decorated it is. We are enjoying the other guests very much too.
Mario and I absolutely love it here and would like to reserve it again next year for 6 months. It is so quiet and private and the nature surrounding us is beautiful. So glad we found you! Ginette
I can't say enough about my stay at Marni's beautiful cottage in probably the best residential area in Boquete. Not only is her property full of fruit trees and beautiful views, her cottage is well decorate, comfortable and very clean. Marnie is the perfect host, thoughtful (left me breakfast stuff and beer!), kind and extremely knowledgeable about Boquete and Panama.I would recommend her rental to any traveler visiting the area.
Marni's cottage was lovely - new, clean, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The bed is very comfortable and we enjoyed the outdoor fire pit! The surrounding lawn and property is also beautiful. Marni was very responsive, informative and accommodating via email while we were planning our trip. Thanks Marni!
