'COTTAGE BY THE RIVER' IN DOWNTOWN BOQUETE

Boquete Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Enjoy paradise in this darling 'casita' situated on the grounds of one of the most admired private properties in downtown Boquete.

The cozy, comfy and convenient one-room guest cottage sits behind a charming wrought iron gate overlooking a beautiful bubbling stream.

The 'casita' is stocked with mini-fridge, microwave, toaster-oven, electric kettle and coffee maker - the basics for preparing breakfast or a light meal.

Walk to language school, restaurants & cafes, shopping, golf course, eco-touring, transportation! Or just hang out in the hammock, listening to the running stream.

The setting is perfect for a romantic weekend, a week of Spanish language immersion, or a longer visit to explore all of the region.

If you are considering a move to Panama, your hosts would be happy to answer questions and give you some 'insider' tips.

If you wish, you can arrange to take a course in silk painting and polymer clay with Barbara, an artist/teacher.

Mort, owner of Morton's Bakehouse, is a well known artisan baker. You may also wish to take one of Mort's artisan bread baking classes.

We and Maggie, our sweet Labradoodle, look forward to welcoming you as our honored guests.

A brief listing of some local festivals and events:

November - a month of celebrations. Panamanian Independence Day Parades. Local celebrations in Boquete are colorful, fun, with parades of darling school children dressed in beautiful costumes.

December - Christmas and New Years celebrations, parades and displays

January - The International Boquete Flower and Coffee Fair. Music events at night are, regrettably, noisy throughout the entire valley - bring ear plugs! The flowers bloom all season! Generally held the third week in January.

February - World-Class Jazz & Blues on the slopes of Volcan , Feb 5-8, 2015. This is a great event - getting bigger and better each year.

March - Orchid Fair in Boquete - professional and amateur growers vie for gold medals. Generally held end of March, beginning of April at the Fair Grounds.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Absolutely perfect location and setting. Our hosts could not have been more welcoming to us. The casita was a wonderful place to stay and incredibly comfortable. The location made it simple to walk to downtown and enjoy all of the shops and restaurants located throughout Boquete. We would not consider staying anywhere else. Perfect for a couple.

Charming "Mermaid" Casita

Charming "Mermaid" Casita
  • 5 of 5
My sister and I stayed a week at this lovely cottage in the beautiful quaint town of Boquete.
Mort and Barb both are the finest hosts that we could hope for. And Maggie was a great companion during our stay.
Upon our our arrival we were greeted by Barb with our first taste of the scrumptious bread that Mort had made and had done that several times after that as well.
We attended the silk painting class by Barb and our creativity was encouraged and nurtured; thankfully with Barbs patience.
A medical emergency arose and Barb was there quickly arranging care, never leaving our side and helping arrange for acquiring the prescriptions needed. She had even offered to drive us herself to David which was over and hour away at 8 PM at night. Her concern and kindness was over and above what we could have ever expected.
The cottage was all that the pictures depicted and more. It was very neat and clean and the landscaping beautiful. The sound of the river lulled us to sleep each night.
Barb suggested a coffee tour with Rich at Cafe de Luna and it was an experience that is a must while in Boquete.
We would suggest this property wholeheartedly and hope to one day return to visit our new friends again.

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I are travelers, and seldom have we stayed at such a perfect place. From the warm greeting and delicious freshly baked bread upon our arrival, to those sweet Maggie dog kisses, we felt glad to have chosen this casita. Everything you good possibly need for a comfortable and safe visit was right at hand, including the most lovely of hosts. We loved being right in town and yet in a quiet place. We slept so good at night in that oh-so comfortable bed with the sound of the fast moving river just outside. We got great advice for day trips, along with good directions, and loved the town of Boquete. We absolutely recommend this sweetest of places to stay. It deserves an extra star!

The casita was true to the descriptions and previous reviews. We found the property to be extremely clean, safe, and well maintained. The hosts were very kind and thoughtful. We enjoyed the convenience of walking to town & restaurants. The continuous sound of the river was so peaceful. Many thanks to the host couple for making our stay such a memorable trip.

Vacation paradise

  • 5 of 5
This darling cottage was the ideal spot for us to seek rest from our jobs and our hectic lives.
There isn't anything we would have changed. Maggie greeted us every day and came in for a visit.on occasion. We adored her.
Mort and Barbara are the perfect hosts...always going out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed. Barbara's silk painting class was wonderful, as was Mort's bread baking class. I only wish I had time to take Barbara's polymer clay class. If you are looking at this cottage and comparing it to others in Boquete, you should just stop comparing and reserve your spot at the Cottage by the River before someone else snags your dates.
You won't be disappointed. The Cottage is pristine, the yard gorgeous, the stream is soothing and the FLOWERS!!!!...oh, my goodness!!!!
PERFECT!!!

Very cozy with pristine surroundings

When I returned home to the States, I went through all of the correspondences from my planning phase of our 33 days in Panama. I could not believe how generous Barbara was with details and reservations for my husband and me ,for events happening during the Jazz Festival in Boquete.Barbara and Mort are wonderful people with inspiring and creative lives. The "casita"is the perfect home in the perfect neighborhood and location in Boquete.Thank you for such a warm and beautiful experience.
