About Ida

Theo and Ida are both Dutch.

Ida was born in former Dutch Indonesia and Theo in The Netherlands.

Ida has lived in former Dutch Indonesia for seven years, 21 years in the USA, 4 years in Italy, 15 years in France and the rest of her lifetime in The Netherlands.

Now she and Theo have started their lives in PANAMA.

Ida purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ida chose Panama

In 2011 they visited Panama for the first time and both fell in love with this lovely tropical country with its kind people.

Ida compared it with Indonesia when she was young!

In 2013 they started the building process of their dreamhouse and casita and they look forward to sharing it with their guests who are looking for a special location.

What makes this cottage unique

When we were visiting the small gated community

on which TANAMERA is situated, we fell in love with

the amazing views.

Furthermore the property is surrounded by nature and overlooking Playa Hermosa.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled in Panama for 12 days and also visited Panama City, Bocas del Toro, and Boquete. Staying at the casita near Boca Chica was the highlight of our trip! The casita is very clean with good air conditioning in the bedroom and a kitchen with everything you need. It is a short walk to the beach where there are fabulous sunsets. This is a quiet area so if you are looking for nightlife and lots of restaurants, it's not the place for you. We found swimming, walking on the beach, and taking a day trip to Las Lajas to be perfect!

Welcome to paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights at Tanamera sharing the cottage with friends and loved this particular corner of paradise.

Theo & Ida made it special by being available for questions, advice on dining, etc. while allowing us to maintain our privacy.

The beach is a short walk and truly wonderful for folks with kids (it's very peaceful with shallow water aplenty) as well as beachcombers, walkers, and those seeking a peaceful breezy spot for reading or relaxing. For those disinclined to walk 10 minutes to the beach, the pool is steps away and Ida & Theo generously share their lounge chairs and offer guests total private access to the pool during their stay. The house is very comfortable and the beds extremely so, outfitted in high end linens. The kitchen is a bit small, but for those wanting to eat in, there's everything you need to cook a meal. And if something is missing, Ida is ready to supply it. If you're not an animal lover you may want to think twice because you'll be visited by one of 3 friendly dogs and possibly a cat. The cat showed up our second night and meowed to get in for quite some time. But the sound of the wind and sea overcame any obstacles toward sleep.

Boca Chica is a quiet corner of paradise and a great spot for getting away from it all. For those interested in exploring, there are many islands to visit and it's easy to get a water taxi or local fisherman to take you on a tour.

You will want a car to visit here, so take that into account and enjoy!

Tanamera = WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We are winding up our month long stay at Tanamera and can only say the property is Outstanding. Ida and Theo are the perfect hosts and always there if needed. The pool the property the beach provides the best relaxing atmosphere that is possible. If you are looking for action, dancing and partying this is NOT for you, but if you are looking to unwind in a tropical paradise this is it! We have been coming to Panama for 7 years and this place is one of the best! We intend to return for sure.

John and Margie

Paradise is Found!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived we said this is paradise! The view is awe inspiring! Lobster Bay is the name of the gated boutique development near Boca Chica Panama. The lovely casita is fully furnished with all high end materials. When we arrived at our new home for two months, the large internet flat screen TV was playing welcoming music. We could hardly believe our eyes and the view that was to be ours from every window and the large patio. The casita feels quite large with an open living room with direct view of Lobster Bay. You can lull away the hours watching the tide come in and go out. Theo and Ida are hosts extraordinaire. They have taken care of everything a guest would need. The casita has all cooking necessities and a small barbecue outside for grilling. There is plenty of working space in the kitchen and a large refrigerator and a six burner gas stove for cooking at home. The patio is also nicely furnished for enjoying outdoor time. You have complete use of the large pool any time of the day or night. Theo keeps the pool immaculately sparkling clean. Ida has planted an herb garden which you are free to use for cooking your meals. Ida has decorated the casita with her treasures from her personal collection. The kitchen has lovely china for everyday dishes and antique decor throughout the vacation home. The beds are very comfortable and you have a king size bed in the master bedroom and two queen size beds in the other bedroom. All beds have upscale linen. Each bedroom has its own air conditioning unit if needed. The bathroom is beautifully tiled and has a rain shower head. All of the cabinets are custom made. There is plenty of storage with the large closets in each bedroom as well as a desk and dresser drawers for taking everything out of your suitcase making it very convenient for long stays. Maid service is available at a very reasonable price for the longer stays. Mely came and cleaned our entire casita and changing linen for $10. We do believe Ida and Theo have found paradise. We can highly recommend a stay at Tanamara Casita. Nearby at Boca Chica there are water taxi boats that can take you out to see the islands. We went whale watching and swimming at our own secluded island which was a highlight during our stay. Thank you Theo and Ida for sharing your lovely casita!

Superb! Clean! Everything works!

  • 5 of 5

Second time we stayed there. Will come back again. Dutch quality that you can never find in Panama. Everything is brand new. Built like a home, not a rental. The best casita in Panama and we have been all over.
