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.
The casita is easily accessible- no stairs, walk in shower. It is not wheel chair accessible, however.
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, I would be happy to answer questions and give you some 'insider' tips.
I am an artist, working in multimedia- acrylics, oil, fiber, collage, polymer clay. I give classes from time to time in my home studio.
My late husband, Mort, founded Morton's Bakehouse, a well known artisan bakery in Alto Boquete. I am continuing his legacy, running the bakery. A delicious fresh bread awaits you!
Maggie, my sweet Labradoodle, and I 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 Baru, in February. 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.

I look forward to welcoming you to Boquete and to my home. Maggie, my sweet labradoodle, looks forward to welcoming you too!
In town, central location but secluded, gated and private.
Rental car not needed- walk to fine restaurants, cafés, local eateries, market, tour operators, bike rentals, etc. But if you rent a car, we have private and secure parking for you.
We loved our stay in the little Casita nestled next to the river. The accommodations were very comfortable and clean and Barbara anticipated and provided extras we weren't expecting. It made for a memorable stay. The baked goods from Mort's Bakery were scrumptious! We highly recommend a stay at the Casita by the River. It is beautiful and right in town close to restaurants.
The cottage has everything you could possibly need including the dog ~Maggie" She will sit with you while you enjoy a cup of Panamian coffee on the porch by the river. Very relaxing and quiet. Wish we could have stayed longer, but will look forward to going back. I should add, Barbara owns a bakery and everything is delicious!!!! A great place to stay in Boquete.
Barbara, Melissa and Maggie are great! They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable during your stay. We are exploring Boquete as a future home and Barbara introduced us to expats in the community and told us the best places to go including restaurants, markets and sites. The casita was nice and cozy with all the basic needs provided. Mornings sitting outside by the river were great. Maggie the resident dog is great company and loves biscuits. Don't forget to get some great treats from Morton's bakery.
Everything about our stay in the casita was great. It is "cozy", but it has everything you need for a fantastic stay in Boquete. Though we had a car, we mostly walked everywhere in town from the casita, it is that conveniently located.
And Barbara. She is just a wonderful, generous, and graceful person. She never hesitated to answer my many questions. Made certain we had privacy, yet when she was home, her front door was always open and we chatted about life in Panama as she has been there a number of years.
We recommend this property to any person or couple visiting Boquete.
Without a doubt a spectacular place to stay and see the true Boquete lifestyles. One block from downtown and minutes walking to everything you would want to see in town. Our host Barbara and Mort should be named head ambassadors for this lovely quaint mountain town. The river 10 feet from our front door and their dog "Maggie" were wonderful things to wake up to each morning. Terrific food in town and fabulous hiking and scenery. Out a possible 10 we give them and this beautiful cottage a 11!
This casita was a delightful stay within a block of downtown Boquete. We really enjoyed being able to walk to town and the coziness of the meandering river just steps from our front door. The landscaping was beautiful and we sure enjoyed sipping on some of the best local Boquete coffee every morning on our front porch. Mort and Barbara were fantastic hosts and offered many suggestions to keep us busy! You must stop in to visit Mort at his bakery just down the road. He serves great bakery goodies and excellent Reuben sandwiches a couple times a week. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the city of Boquete was so friendly and beautiful!
