'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.

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!

WE LOVED OUR STAY IN THE COTTAGE.

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.

BEAUTIFUL BOQUETE HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
We spent 6 nights in this wonderful casita, so thoughtfully furnished down to every practical detail by Mort & Barbara, our hosts in Boquete. The location is ideal for exploring downtown. The casita felt like home...so comfortable while we were there. We had privacy, but we could always get good advice and recommendations from our hosts. Thanks for your wonderful hospitality, Mort & Barbara! I chose you after reading the great reviews, and I was not disappointed one little bit. It was all true and even better than imagined! If you go, be sure to try Mort's Bakery and Barbara's "happy" art! You guys make Boquete, a good place even better!

BEAUTIFUL SECLUDED LITTLE SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Barbara and Mort's little cabin deserves it's very high rating -- it's a lovely little spot with the stream rushing just outside the door. The stream and the gardens around it really make the place -- having breakfast on the little terrace outside the front door of the cabin was such a relaxing way to start the day. The cabin has been really, really thoughtfully equipped, with everything from saran wrap (to pack up lunch sandwiches) to cold water in the fridge to bathrobes in the dresser. Barbara and Mort were very welcoming and wonderful at giving us suggestions, even inviting us to a benefit concert when they discovered one of us was a musician. The only thing I can think of that might be a draw back from some is that the cabin is small -- there's not a lot of space around the room with the bed and the kitchenette. It was absolutely not a problem for us, but maybe if you have tons of luggage it could be? That's really the only thing I can think of, and it's a stretch! Also, Boquete is amazing, and there is tons of stuff to do. Highly recommended.
