'THE RETREAT' AT THE SPRINGS - 1 OR 2 BEDROOM

Boquete Studio Rental Photos and Description

1 or 2 bedrooms w/private baths. Sleeps 2-6 with beautiful mountain views.

Please contact us by email for availability, as frequently one of the suites will be available even though the calendar will indicate otherwise. 'The Retreat' nestled on the side of a mountain only 7 minutes by car from downtown Boquete, is one of this area's finest homes. We are offering our lower terrace level which includes your choice of bedrooms, one with 2 queen beds or a bedroom with 1 queen bed. Each bedroom is priced separately. Both bedrooms have large spa type bathrooms. Off the bedrooms is a large sitting room with a morning kitchen perfect for lunch or light meals and a large covered Terrazzo with a sitting area and large dining table. 'The Retreat' is located in The Springs, a gated community adjacent to the Kotowah Coffee Finca. (This is a No Smoking property and No Pets allowed).

Formerly a part of Kotowah, The Springs is now a garden paradise with walking paths, meditation gardens, and all the tranquility one could ever desire. The Retreat has been described by a local realtor as one of the finest homes in all of Boquete. From this magnificent haven, one can walk the paths of The Springs or sit and meditate in one of the many rest-stops along the way. For the more energetic, it's about a 2 mi trek into downtown Boquete walking parallel to the Caldera River. Taxi and bus service are also available.

At 'The Retreat' you have your choice of 2 large

bedrooms on the terrace level floor. Each bedroom has en-suite state-of-the-art spa bathrooms with oversize shower. The 2 bedrooms are separated by a sitting room with comfortable chairs, morning kitchen with a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. We offer Continental breakfast of yogurt, breakfast rolls from the famous Sugar and Spice bakery in downtown Boquete, the best coffee in the world, juice, soft drinks, and other 'goodies'. A large Terrazzo also separates the 2 bedrooms and from the bedrooms and Terrazzo one has an incredible view of the dormant Volcano Baru. Each room has a TV with cable and DVD players. There is also a library of books available.

The temperature is seventy five degrees year round, sixty at night. The town of Boquete is charming, there is lots to do with many great restaurants. The Pacific ocean is just an hour away.

The house was built in 2011 by Mike and Cynthia Essman who have lived in Boquete for over 2 years. Cynthia was a well known Atlanta Interior Designer and the home reflects her exquisite taste. She designed the home and Prestige Builders, Boquete's finest home builder completed it in Oct. 2011. Mike is a retired Insurance Executive. They moved to Boquete from Big Canoe in the North GA mountains 60 miles due North of downtown Atlanta. The Retreat is available for short term rental for a minimum of 2 days to a maximum of 1 month. Rates and particulars are below.

If you are looking for upscale lodging in the most beautiful community in Boquete 'The Retreat' at The Springs is the place to be.

Comfort and beauty in Boquete.

  • 5 of 5
We arrived in Boquete exhausted from the previous week of travel in the heat and humidity of Panama. What a relief to arrive to cooler weather and the beautiful and comfortable home of Cynthia. Cynthia is an interior designer, and her talent is on display in this magnificent home. The guest quarters are downstairs; two large and beautifully decorated bedrooms (we had the "Dog Room") connected by a sitting area which opens onto a large porch with comfortable seating, a large table, and beautiful view. We were the only guests, so we had the entire downstairs to ourselves which was quiet and peaceful. Cynthia (who is from Georgia), was the perfect Southern hostess; friendly and helpful but unobtrusive. She provided us with delicious coffee cake every morning and was happy to help with recommendations for places to eat. We were missing our dogs so Cynthia let us "borrow" her beautiful golden lab Atticus for our "dog fix"! Thank you, Cynthia, for making our stay so wonderful. Give Atticus a hug from us!

To die for......

  • 5 of 5
From the moment I saw the front door I felt I was home and from the second I met Cynthia I KNEW I was home. My husband and I arrived a little frazzled, as traveling can make you, but we instantly relaxed in the comfortable, lush, inviting environment at The Retreat. Cynthia's home is lovely and enjoyable inside and out and as a host Cynthia really shines. Atticus is just a joy to behold. I was attaching wheels to his feet and a handle to his body when I got caught; surely he could travel as carry-on. Everything was perfect from the very comfortable bed to the morning coffee and breakfast treats. Cynthia is very generous, kind, humble and knowledgeable. I will be talking up my stay for a long while!!! Thank you for everything, adios!

Comfort, Style, Convenience, and Gracious Hospitality at the Retreat

  • 5 of 5
"The Retreat is at the Springs" is a beautiful Tuscan-style home in a lush, verdant setting in the hills of Boquete. Located close to town by car, we were easily able to sight see and dine. Sitting on the tranquil veranda in the mornings and evenings, we watched the clouds float over the nearby Volcan Baru. We chose the Cottage room, which was very comfortable, the mattresses and bedding wonderful. The bathroom is more than ample, as is the walk in closet. Every morning, we had a delicious treat baked by our gracious hostess, who is an accomplished interior designer and whose taste and talent is showcased both inside and outside the property. Whenever we asked, she was a wealth of information on the area, which greatly enriched our stay and understanding of Boquete. All of our needs and requests were efficiently met. We highly recommend this property and look forward to returning to Boquete.

Beautiful, pure and simple :)

We have a wanderfull experience in Boquete.It was an amazing place to wake up in the morning and have a cup of coffee on the patio,while listening to birds.Very private, beautiful rooms, nicely decorated and very comfortable beds,felt like home. Cynthia was a gracious host,bringing fresh baked cake it was a welcoming surprise. What we really missed was the " kitchen " sink - we had to wash our coffee cups in the bathroom :(( . Over all we had very good time exploring the area. We thank you Cynthia very much for making our stay so pleasant and we wish the very best. Love - Vicky and Cornel

Owner's Response: Vicky and Cornel,
I so enjoyed your visit to The Retreat de Boquete. I purposely do not have a kitchen sink because I really do not expect any of my guests to do their own dishes? I always come down twice a day to pick up any dishes that need to be cleaned. I never expect any of my guests to clean their own dishes. You are the first. I am so glad you chose The Retreat for your travel accommodations. I throughly enjoyed your visit to our beautiful Paradise in The Highlands of Panama. Sincerely Cynthia,

Great Location, Great Service...thank you

We were a group of two families that rented out each side of the home (so we rented two bedrooms). We had 4 boys at the home, all under the age of 10. It was perfect for us. Cynthia was really nice and we felt at home. The kids loved the garden area around the home. The house was super clean, bedding was great and the view is amazing.

True breath of fresh air

What an amazing place to wake up to and have coffee (some of the best world wide) on the patio, while listening to birds. We even caught a rainbow one morning. Loads of privacy, the street wasn't a thru street. You can see for miles. Close in, for convenient restaurants, and shopping. Beautifully decorated, the rooms felt like home and they made you feel like it was your home.
