Brian and I retired and moved from Canada in 2006. We spent our first year in Costa Rica.
Then we moved and built Villa Bowes, here in Gorgeous Altos del Maria, Panama.
We absolutely LOVE it here! Living on the Continental Divide, with awesome views of the Pacific Ocean, Mountains and Valleys. We are living the dream!
Jeannette Bowes purchased this cottage in 2007
This property is very special. We designed it ourselves, in a Spanish Mediterranean fashion, this Villa hangs off the side of the Mountain, offering grandiose views and complete privacy. It has every convenience needed for you to enjoy your stay in Paradise;-)
Wrap around Terrace with - 360 views, sunrise to sunset, you are on top of the world!
This was our first trip to Panama. We spent a week in the City, and a week at this beautiful cottage. This is a great place to launch your explorations further inland or along the beaches. We were able to visit beaches, as well as further toward the interior (Anton Valley). The views around the cottage are spectacular, and the owners are very responsive and helpful!
The cottage includes everything you need from cooking utensils to cutlery and plates. Everything in the kitchen worked well! They even have a little BBQ outside. Also, the bed was supportive and comfortable.
If you are renting a car, don't bother with the rental agency's GPS... bring your smart phone and use the Waze app. Ended up purchasing a pay as you go SIM card from Claro (while in the City) and had no trouble with 4G service while at the cottage.
If you are considering staying here, just do it! You won't regret it!
Great spot to go visit altos del maria and explore around
Weather here is superb and the views breathtaking
Finally, peace and quiet, Tranquilo....The panoramic views, surreal. The songbirds, being above the clouds, hiking trails that are like hidden pearls....And J n B, yes the host, very friendly and jolly....See for yourself....make the trip....I am ready to relocate....
We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Bowes. The cottage was neat and clean and nicely appointed. There were sufficient dishes and other kitchenware to make our own breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
The location is somewhat remote, but the views of the Pacific Ocean (from the front) and mountain valleys (from the back) were spectacular. Close to many great hiking trails with lots of interesting birds and beautiful butterflies.
We suggest stopping at one of the larger grocery stores on your way as what is available in the little local stores is limited.
Well maintained cute cottage overlooking two valleys to enjoy sun-up and sunset. Enjoyed our hosts and exploring adjacent areas. Perfect get-away w no neighbors or noisy distractions. Will definetely stay again.
We spent three nights at the mountaintop cottage and it was exactly what we needed after our wedding and to escape our busy careers. I wish there were more properties like this one. It was simple but had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Jeanette was most helpful with pre-arrival instructions. She also organized a hike for us the first full day of our stay and provided great guidance for other to-dos and a quick way to El Valle. I didn't appreciate how awesome the weather was at this cottage until I spent a few more days down closer to the canal. The mountain breeze and cooler evenings (50-60 degrees, not THAT cool) were a welcoming escape from the city and jungle heat.
Located 90 minutes from the vibrant city of Panama, 30 minutes from the many Pacific coastal beaches, in the beautiful Mountains of Altos del Maria. Hiking trails with waterfalls and natural swimming hole, work out area, tennis courts, yoga offered five days a week. Come live in Paradise, if only for a wonderful vacation/retreat!
