About This Listing
Private and quiet home with wonderful views is still close to town and shopping. 3 bedroom and 2 bath layout ideal for friends or families. Local coffee beans+grinder+french press=Morning Delight! Lots to do in the area: Zip Line, Birding, Rafts.
Sited near the end of the street, this villa looks over the valley, chuckling stream and 9 hole golf course. Very quiet and private with landscaped grounds and easy access to town. Prefer not to rent a car? No problem as town is a 15 minute stroll downhill. Taxi back home is about US$2.00. Pacific beaches 1-2 hours away for an easy day trip or overnight. Mountain hiking to challenge the most hardy trekker, down to day walks on the many paths & trails.
Our home is an easy jumping off point to lots of activities including coffee tours, horseback riding, hiking and exploring. ATV rentals in town as well as very nice restaurants featuring seafood and produce locally produced.
Interaction with Guests
Email is best to reach owners for details. Our local manager (also a neighbor) will make the on-site arrangements for your stay.
No two homes are alike in Valle Escondido. The custom architecture and landscaping is an ever-changing pleasure.
Most guests bring a car. Rental Cars are available in Panama City (7hrs), Boquete or from the nearby airport in David (45 min). Taxis are inexpensive for short trips around town and even for longer excursions. We often will arrive from David by taxi and spend several days shopping and visiting friends on foot, only renting a car for a day or two for longer trips around the region. We keep a couple of inexpensive local cell phones and keep the contact info for good Taxistas with nice vehicles. Bus service runs between Boquete and David with connections to Panama or to the Costa Rica border. Think of it as "adventure travel lite"
The home is half of a larger 6 Bedroom hacienda with the wings separated by a covered courtyard. Private entrances make an easy separation, but we request quiet after 9pm if that side has guests. No smoking in the home. We will discuss pets for your visit.
Valle Escondido is probably one of the most exclusive and beautiful retreats you can find in Boquete. The house was perfect for our group, and although we did not meet Bruce personally, the property manager, Ikeya, was very helpful and she was very kind at receiving us and answering any doubts about the house.
The terrace view was stunning, it showed justice to what Boquete really is: paradise.
The quiet retreat in Boquete was quite comfortable. The view from the back patio was gorgeous. The home was clean but needs a bit of updating. We were met by the housekeeper who was very personable and showed us around the property. The heat exchanger for the hot water may need to be serviced. We loved Boquete and the flora around the home was beautiful.
Esta Villa es bellísima, su ubicación es muy cercana a downtown Boquete, y tiene una vista espectacular desde la terraza donde disfrutar un buen vino o simplemente (website hidden) Villa esta bien equipada con todo lo necesario para hacer su estadía agradable, incluso un molino de café donde podrá disfrutar de sus compras de café local( Kotowa, café Ruiz ). Bruce fue muy atento y dispuesto a resolver cualquier duda prontamente. Si desean explorar la oferta culinaria de Boquete recomiendo Fish House ubicado en vía principal, con excelente platos como fish and chips y el Mahi Mahi a la parilla. También muy bueno los wraps. Sugar and Spice es una cafetería muy buena con buena variedad de panes, muffins y emparedados. Si viajan a Volcan, recomiendo el buffet dominical en Kid's World (via principal) es buena opción.Esta Villa era nuestro edén. Gracias Bruce.
Bruce was very kind and helpful, and was a pleasure dealing with. The house is in a nice location in Valle Escondido, and it was well equipped. Great for cooking and enjoying some nice wine or coffee. It has plenty of beds so is good for families. Will return.
