Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband, Glenn and I, were planning our first trip to Panama and a friend forwarded the link to Las Plumas to us. We read it and it was just want we were looking for. We were able to make all the arrangements with Dirk over the internet. And when we arrived, it was better than we thought. The house itself, we were in Woodpecker, was beautifully landscaped as was the whole compound. The interior was nicely furnished; clean and comfortable, and it had everything that we needed for our month long stay. This area is an agricultural one so we were able to get fresh fruits and vegetables. Right on the corner in Volcan is a grocery store that caters to Americans with many familiar products and signs in English. There were plenty of activities to do in the area including hikes right from the house. A short drive from the house will take you to hiking trails and several birding sites. Dirk has the contact information for birding guides in the house. We used Carlos and enjoyed our outings with him. In addition to other birds, we saw the Quetzal which was my goal. Also only a short drive away are good restaurants and even a day spa for manicures and pedicures. But you don't have to leave the house to see natural beauty or birds. Look out the window and you can see the mountains and birds at the feeders that are provided. But all of this we sort of expected from Dirk's web site. What we didn't expect was what a great place this was to come home to. We took several overnight trips during the month and it was so nice to come back to Las Plumas to rest and regroup. We would sit outside on the covered patio, look at the flowers and the mountain and the clouds and the birds and unwind and relax. It is just such a comfortable place made more so by the hospitality of Dirk and his staff. I can't say enough about Las Plumas and we highly recommend it.

THANKS FOR OUR WONDERFUL STAY IN THE QUETZAL HOME IN LAS PLUMAS

  • 5 of 5
WE HAD A WONDERFUL STAY FOR A MONTH IN THE 3-BEDROOM QUETZAL HOME IN LAS PLUMAS. THE HOME IS VERY RESTFUL WITH ALL CONVENIENCES YOU NEED FOR A FAMILY VACATION INCLUDING INTERNET AND TV. THE KITCHEN WAS LARGE AND WELL APPOINTED WITH A LARGE PANTRY, THE LIVING/DINING ROOM WAS VERY RELAXING, THE BEDROOMS COMFORTABLE WITH LARGE CLOSETS, AND THE TERRACE WAS A NICE PLACE FOR FAMILY GATHERINGS FOR BREAKFAST AND LATE AFTERNOON GET-TOGETHERS. ANOTHER AREA WHICH WAS IMPORTANT FOR A MONTH STAY IS THE LAUNDRY ROOM WITH A WASHER AND DRYER.

DIRK IS ALWAYS VERY RESPONSIVE TO ANY ADDITIONAL NEEDS YOU MIGHT HAVE WHICH IS IMPORTANT.

I ESPECIALLY ENJOYED THE LOVELY GARDEN AT THE QUETZAL HOME WITH DAISIES, BOUGANVILLA, GARDENIA, AZALEAS, LILIES, AND OTHER FLOWERS IN BLOOM. ALSO, THE FRAGRANCE OF THE PINE TREES SURROUNDING THE PROPERTY IS AN ADDED PLUS.

THIS IS OUR 4TH TIME STAYING IN LAS PLUMAS HOMES, AND I CAN RECOMMEND YOU STAYING THERE.

BEAUTIFUL AND COMFORTABLE ACCOMMODATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in The Tanager at Las Plumas for 4 weeks in March 2014. The cottage was very pleasant and comfortable for either a short or long stay. It was completely furnished with a fully equipped kitchen with filtered water, which is safe for drinking and cooking and an attached laundry facility. The surroundings were private, secure, beautiful and peaceful. The location is lovely and close to the town of Volcan where shopping is available and the people are friendly. Las Plumas is also conveniently located to hiking trails, sightseeing and other interesting adventures.
Dirk and his staff, Janeth and William, were very responsive and always helpful.
We were very pleased with the accommodations and service and recommend it as a great place to stay.

Cozy, Clean, Comfy!!

  • 4 of 5
Dirk provided us with a lovely cottage fully equipped including our own laundry facilities. The location of the property was fantastic, particularly for those interested in seeing a lot of the local sites and hiking around this area. Everything we wanted to see & do was within a 15 min. drive. A vehicle is definitely recommended. The home is very private & secure. We felt totally safe during our stay. Anything we needed was promptly taken care of. Dirk even drew us a map of the local hiking and walking trails. This is a great place to stay. High speed internet & satellite tv with numerous channels available in english was very nice. We would stay here again.

Volcan Vacation

  • 4 of 5
We recently rented the Tanager house for twelve days. We found the house clean and prepared for us. The grounds surrounding the house were a very pleasant surprise. Over all, the geographical location of Las Plumas in town was very quite, peaceful and secure. Meaning very few dogs barking at night, a true security system, the sounds of the river in the near distance, etc. The Tanager house was very comfortable and had everything included that made our vacation that much more enjoyable.

During our stay in Volcan we had the opportunity to tour other properties for rent and other vacation rentals located in and around Volcan and we found that Las Plumas was by far the best facility, best priced - best value accommodations (vacation or long term rental) within a ten mile radius of town.

We highly recommend Las Plumas to anyone who intends to visit Volcan. The staff and owners are very helpful, friendly and very available.

Best regards,

Your new friends from Houston, Texas

casa Motmot

  • 5 of 5
Nuestra familia de cuatro personas vivió 4 años en la casa Motmot del inmueble Las Plumas ubicado en Paso Ancho, población cercana a la ciudad de Volcán de la provincia de Chiriquí. Este inmueble tiene varias casas alejadas unas de otras con una entrada principal para todas ellas. El dueño de este inmueble es el Sr. Dirk Albert de Veer.
En el territorio muy hermoso y cuidado de este inmueble también habitan ardillas y gran variedad de aves, a los cuales observábamos con mucho interés; y nuestros hijos desde sus primeros años tuvieron la posibilidad de ampliar sus conocimientos sobre la naturaleza con mucha admiración y alegría.
La casa se encuentra cerca a la orilla del río Chiriquí Viejo; y estando en la veranda se puede gozar de la belleza del río y también del bosque ubicado sobre la otra orilla, donde frecuentemente se pueden ver a los monos capuchinos (llamados “monos titi” por los pobladores del lugar) trepando y saltando por los árboles en busca de su alimentación.
La casa donde estuvimos alojados es amplia y tiene un hall grande, en el cual se encuentran unidas la cocina y la sala de visitas. También tiene tres dormitorios, uno de ellos es el dormitorio principal con baño y ducha independientes y los otros dos son más pequeños. Además, cuenta con un baño para visitas. La casa está completamente equipada, tiene agua caliente (gracias al calentador de agua a gas), artefactos electrico-mecánicos domésticos, vajilla, cama, etc. En esta casa nos sentimos muy cómodos, por cuanto habiendo llegado nosotros del extranjero, no teníamos la necesidad de comprar una serie de artículos domésticos menores. El dueño de la casa, el Sr. Dirk, accediendo a nuestra petición, instaló una bañera en la sala de baño del dormitorio principal. Quisiéramos señalar que el Sr. Dirk, siempre estuvo dispuesto para prestarnos cualquier ayuda y comprender nuestros deseos. Todos los inconvenientes relacionados con la falla de cualquier artefacto electrico-mecánico o alguna instalación de la casa, de inmediato se solucionaban de una manera u otra.
Delante de la casa hay un área abierta para estacionamiento de carros y también hay otra bajo techo para un vehículo.
Nosotros nos sentimos muy confortables en esta casa. Nuestros niños aquí tuvieron gran libertad y espacio para sus juegos y paseos.
En resumen, es una casa con aire fresco y comodidades, ¿qué más se necesita para ser feliz?
