'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.

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.

Enjoyed our stay at The Retreat

We spent 4 nights at The Retreat and really enjoyed it....the location just out of town is great...far away from the bustle of Main St. but just few minutes drive there. We also enjoyed the outdoor patio with beautiful views of Volcan Baru when the clouds cleared. The bedrooms and baths were very comfortable and having a fridge and coffee maker was a plus. Every morning Cynthia delivered a delicious cake from a local bakery. We would recommend staying here...perfect for a family using both bedrooms.

A peaceful retreat lodging away from the nearby town of Boquete

My husband and I spent 10 days at this peaceful B & B setting close enough to the town of Boquete yet far enough away to feel like a retreat. We stayed in the "dog themed room" which was very spacious, clean, and had a most comfortable bed and excellent spa shower which felt so good at the end of a day of hiking. We did not have a car, however we are walkers and enjoyed the walk along the countryside in to the town of Boquete. Taxis and local bus down the hill are available. Cynthia was a gracias host and although does not provide a full scale hot breakfast she surprised us with other treats. The tasty morning sausage biscuits, black bean soup one evening, and quiche on another evening were so welcomed and enjoyed. We spent most of our days gone sightseeing then back around 5 to sit on the large front deck overlooking beautiful gardens and enjoying the view of Volcan Baru and lush rainforest covered mountains. Cynthia knew how to respect her guests privacy, yet was available when needed. If you like to hike, must do The three Waterfalls hike, Pipeline Road for Quetzel sightings, and the hike to Tree Trek nearby was beautiful. Great food at Sugar And Spice Bakery, Big Daddy's, The Rock, and Art Cafe. Cafe de la Lunas Coffee Tour excellent. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay here and would certainly recommend.

A True Paradise

We had a great experience staying at The Retreat. We arrived late and were just too tired to go out for dinner, so these gracious Southern hosts served us a delicious dinner which was not even part of our deal. The next morning we awoke to the most beautiful mountain views we've ever experienced. The accommodations were more than perfect and the privacy and comfort were more than a 5 star hotel. The retreat is very close to town. yet it is so peaceful and quiet with the only sound being that of the many beautiful birds. We were served fresh homemade bread and the most delicious coffee every day of our stay. We loved the lazy mornings on the oversized private covered porch before heading off to a new and different adventure every day. The Retreat is conveniently located to activities like hiking, bird watching, zip lining and all the wonderful restaurants to fit any budget or tastes. Getting to The retreat was easy and a 4 wheel drive vehicle is not necessary.

We loved the peace and quiet of this location, yet the convenience to town of a 5 minute drive. If you are a walker, it's a nice walk into town. The gated community of The Springs is very beautiful.

The state of the art baths were wonderful as so often traveling in Central America there is no hot water or you must deal with a hot shower changing to cold in the middle. We loved the endless hot water as well as the unbelievable comfort of the beds at The retreat.

We would definitely choose to stay here on any future visits to Boquete. The owners were more than accommodating and were helpful with any information we needed to know and were so interesting to talk with. They say you can judge a person by the type books they have. Well, we were so impressed with the books owned by Mike and Cynthia.

This was the perfect place for a perfect vacation.

A Beautiful Paradise

The location and property are both perfect and is a tropical paradise. The owners were terrific and extremely helpful with every detail. They exceeded all expectations. The property is beautifully furnished and the beds are the most comfortable we've ever experienced on any trip anywhere. We enjoyed the overly large private covered porch over looking the many beautiful gardens everywhere around the property. We were extremely satisfied with the cleanliness and the entire renting experience and Mike and Cynthia's Southern Hospitality made our visit even more perfect. The Wifi worked great as we knew there was the possibility of spotty internet in Panama, but with all the extra concern the Owners took to be sure the signals were strong, we were pleasantly surprised and could easily stream on our iPads. This place is as near perfect as a place can be. It is also beautiful.
