Panama Villa Rental Photos and Description

1 & 2 bedrooms, swimming-pool with breathtaking mountain views

***Please note that the rates are for 1 bedroom 1-2 guests...for the use of the 2nd bedroom there are extra charges listed in the rate information***

Your slice of paradise awaits you near the city…leave your worries behind and immerse yourself in pure HEAVEN!

Stressed, anxious…looking to really decompress or wanting a central home base in search for your retirement/investment property…here is THE place: a wonderful villa nested in the mountains of “Capira” surrounded by rolling hills and tropical vegetation, in a 24/hour secured area.

Your neighbors: the “Campana national park” and the “Cerro Trinidad” act as barriers resulting in fewer rains than “El Valle” and certainly “Boquete” so you can enjoy more sunny days;-)

However when it rains it feels very nice as you just sit back and enjoy the breeze. Breathe in the pure air…no smog here!

This home has been tastefully decorated and fitted with all the modern comfort such as satellite T.V. (to be able to follow your favorite show or stay tuned with the world), WiFi so you can still work (in this ambiance it is a real pleasure!) & a gourmet kitchen for your romantic dinners…along with a barbecue to enjoy the pool area…and to make your stay worry free, our housekeeper will come twice weekly to clean the house & the pool will be taken care of 3 times a week.

My favorite feature of this house along with the cathedral ceilings, the stunning kitchen & the terrace is the breathtaking views that you have from every corner of the house, you really can’t beat that anywhere else in Panama…soak in the pool (it’s not a big pool but enough to refresh yourself and do exercise) with your favorite drink or just take in the nature (you’ll see a variety of birds such as eagles, hocks, flycatchers, hummingbirds etc...) and…RELAX on the beautiful patio furniture and the comfy hammock…you won’t want to leave your home away from home:-)

One of the great assets of the villa is the LOCATION: only a 50 minutes’ drive from “Panama City”, 30 to “La Chorrera” & “Coronado” (lots of shops & restaurants), 1 hour 15 to “El Valle de Anton”…and you can find beaches as near as 20 minutes away.

Whether you come with your partner or share this home with a couple of friends you will have plenty of space to spread out as it has 2 Master bedrooms each with their en-suite bathroom and balcony to enjoy the views…privacy is not an issue as each Master suite is on opposite wings of the house.

You will absolutely LOVE it!!!

This is our parent’s home that we rent for others to enjoy when they are away in Europe…so no details have been spared…you will feel right at home (FYI it is a clutter free home as their belongings are put away in a 3rd bedroom). Needless to say that we handpick our guests to ensure that they will be returning to the same well taken care home that they cherish…only neat guests welcomed…no smokers, no parties and no pets allowed.

For your convenience we also offer great city condos in the most sought out locations such as: the “Amador” by the Causeway & the colonial neighborhood of “Casco Viejo” well as great tours led by Rudy himself who is a certified tour guide!

We are your one stop shop: city stay, sightseeing tours in & around the city and relax in the mountains;-)

Looking forward to welcoming you to Panama! Patty & Rudy

NOTE: we don’t look for a 100% occupancy rate (so there is limited rental weeks) since we also come here whenever we can to relax as we are totally in love with my parent’s home;-)

***VERY IMPORTANT: we do not allow gatherings - day guests are welcomed as long as they get registered...thank you for your understanding***

Why Patty chose Panama

We were looking for a place where my parents could spend their winter in a cooler environment but close to the city where we live...and we just fell in love with the VIEWS!

Gorgeous Mountain Villa

  • 5 of 5

We felt very welcome from the first second on. The villa is in a absolute quite neighborhood and outstanding clean - and this means something if a swiss couple tells that ;-) The house is equipped with everything needed and more. It was perfectly as starting point for hikings and the visit of the canal. Thanks Patty & Rudy

Panama Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this mountain villa for 6 nights in June 2015 with our two teenage kids. The pictures do not do it justice. It is a gorgeous rental in a beautiful location about 50 minutes from Panama City. We spent many hours enjoying the wildlife and pool area. It is so peaceful and serene! The kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly imagine. The layout of the villa is great for two couples as it has two separate wings. Patty and Rudy are exceptional at what they do. Patty was available by phone or email in a matter of hours for whatever we needed. Rudy is extremely knowledgeable and was so helpful with driving directions and Panama travel tips. They love what they do and made our family feel both welcome and taken care of. If you are traveling to Panama, you need to consider this rental. It is absolutely the best and offered by two total professionals!!

Excellent adventures in Panama!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't have had a better time thanks to Patti & Rudi!! 5 days in the Amador Condo & 9 days in the Mountain Villa. Both lodgings were nicely appointed, maintained & clean. Our first days in Panama City we traveled with the wonderful, brilliant Rudi. He picked us up at the airport, helped us get groceries & made sure we were comfortable. He took us on four GREAT tours: PANAMA CITY BY NIGHT; PANAMA CANAL RAILROAD, SAN LORENZO, GATUN LOCKS & COLON; PARTIAL CANAL TRANSIT; EMBERA INDIAN VILLAGE. Each was fun, exciting, interesting & beautiful. We also spent a wonderful day whale watching in the Pearl Islands. Then it was out to the Mountain Villa. We rented a car & took day trips when we weren't just laying back in the beautiful Villa. Two of the Nat'l Geographic's "101 Worlds Most Scenic Drives," are located near by the Villa, NORTH of PENONOME & AZUERO EXPERIENCE. During the latter we were able to attend Panama's largest folkloric festival! Another great day trip was to El Valle with its waterfalls, zoo & golden frogs, orchid gardens with the ghost orchid & not to forget the bird watching. Just sitting around the pool at the Villa, we had to keep the binoculars close for the best birding!! Both city & country places had great kitchens & electronics & internet connections. But the key to our fabulous vacation was Patti & Rudi!! They made sure everything went well & anticipated our every need. Panama is a great vacation. Urban & rural, world history & solitary beaches, the amazing canal & the beautiful people... bring your camara!

  • 5 of 5

After having a horrible experience at another home, these fine folks allowed us the priviledge of staying here for a month. Amazing views, well stocked with all the cooking utensils you need, perfect relaxing pool, excellent housekeeper, clean and everything in perfect working order. We strongly suggest considering this home and its owners! Our trip of a lifetime was made special buy this property, trust us and book it now! Cooler than the beach with less bugs, priceless peace and quiet, modern and comfortable, this place has it all!

The Villa. Our recent trip to Panama was a “once in a lifetime” excursion

  • 5 of 5

Our recent trip to Panama was a “once in a lifetime” excursion, thanks to Patty’s Casitas and Rudy’s Tours . Patty and Rudy cover all the bases with their perfect choices of living accommodations and places to go and see. They were available to help with daily itinerary choices and any problems we had. The villa and condo were well placed geographically and allowed easy access to see lots of what Panama had to offer. The Amador condo had every appliance we could think of, and was within an easy walk of some very nice restaurants, and the Canal. A short cab ride took us to grocery stores, shopping, more restaurants and scenery. The phone they supplied us with added a sense of security and a connection to Patty and Rudy for help if needed. The Mountain Villa near Capira was spacious and well appointed, with an infinity pool and covered patio. Rudy’s tours took us in every direction, on the isthmus railroad to Colon , past Coronado to El Valle, on a dugout canoe ride to the Embera Village , thru Old ruins of the old City and Spanish Forts. What a grand and beautiful trip thru a thriving and industrious country. The people are all very friendly and we felt very safe anywhere we went at any time of day or night. We are recommending Patty’s Casitas and Rudy’s Tours for this Panama Adventure to all our friends and relatives. And we are already planning our next trip to Panama . Nancy and jack. . .

Private, serene retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our 2 ½ month stay in this villa. It’s truly an idyllic retreat: beautifully yet simply furnished with everything you could need for a luxurious, carefree stay, including a fully equipped kitchen and an outdoor grill for those who prefer to do their own cooking. There’s ample grocery shopping at either La Chorrera or Coronado, with several small markets closer by for incidental items. The home and pool were immaculately cared for by the housekeeper which left us free to simply relax and soak up the sunshine.

In our travels through the Pacific side of Panama (from Panama City to the Azuero Peninsula and lots in between) we never found a more serene setting or drop-dead gorgeous view than we had at this villa! With the added attraction of being able to make the short trip back into Panama City for the restaurants, shopping and entertainment to be found there, this villa was ideally situated as a retreat from the distractions of city life.

You could not wish for better proprietors than Patty and Rudy. They have always provided ultra-responsive concierge level service for every question and need during our stays (both at this villa and at their city properties). They also offer terrific airport transport, as well as personally guided tours by Rudy, both of which we were definitely glad we’d arranged for while in the city.
