Ibu and Pat are currently settled in Boquete, Chiriqui after living in Panama City for over 30 years. Both are retired. Ibu from flying, and Pat from teaching.

ibu alvarado purchased this cottage in 1999

This cottage was originally built by the Panama Canal Company to house their US employees. When the Canal Zone reverted to Panama on 31 December 1999 in accordance to the 1976 Panama Canal Treaties between the US and Panama, those living in the houses were given 1st choice to purchase them. We did just that! Best place to live in Panama City. Close enough but away from the hustle and bustle of the metropolis.

The neighborhood is definitely a family oriented one where most have lived there over 15 years. It's quiet and safe and the neighbors are just that: neighbourly. Renters mention that the deck for afternoon relaxing and bird watching plus the abundance of trees are tops in their preference as well as the appealing streets for jogging or just walking.

Situated in a lovely neighborhood near a municipal swimming pool, this property is quite comfortable both inside and out. Best bet is not to rent a car but take taxis when heading to spots in Panama City.

Great location!

Perfect location to be for this busy city. Relatively safe--in a good neighborhood, good security system on the house. Great wifi. Well equipped kitchen. Must have a car, but the location is perfect for a retreat from the city, yet close enough to major attractions like Miraflores and Sobaneria National Park and the Pipeline road, Cerro Ancon, Amador causeway, Metropolitano Park, and downtown. We spent early mornings and late afternoons on the roof patio watching birds, agouti's and big boats going in the canal. Also very close to Albrook airport so it was always easy to find "home". Good shopping nearby. Couldn't ask for a better location or house for Panama City. The owner was responsive and very helpful. He even supplied us with a phone to call him with emergencies. Maid service twice a week. We had a great stay here.

Great Stay !

We spent 2 great months in the house. Great location, very green and calm. Perfect base to explore and discover most points of interests of the Panama Province. Away from the crazy traffic jam of central Panama City.
Very cosy house, spacious, clean, tastefully decorated, beautiful tiles, well equipped, we felt at home from day 1. We have 2 children (6 months old and 3 YO). We enjoyed the back terrace and garden to drink aperitifs "al fresco" or cook dinner on the bbq. The top terrace is a great spot to observe the local wildlife (Birds). One needs to wake up very early to enjoy it (like 6AM), but it is worth it!
We enjoyed the next door swimming pool of Los Rios, where we met very friendly locals. We found the kids parks next door and the ones in the "Ciudad del Saber" very handy too.
We enjoyed very much our stay.

I stayed here with my husband and two small children. The house was impeccably clean, spacious, comfortable, and, most important of all, safe. Bird-watching in the early morning on the deck was a true delight. We saw parrots, parakeets, and lots of other birds flying by. In the neighbor's yard, we saw a ñeque walking about, too. :) Our stay was very comfortable, and I highly recommend staying here on your next vacation to Panama.
