Outstanding Quality

  • 5 of 5

Space, style and helpful staff. We hesitated to book this house for 2 people as it is designed and priced for larger parties: very glad we did. The large grounds bounded by a river are tended by a full time gardener. The terraces and balconies make the most of the views- though one is aware of other nearby houses. Unusual to have such a large beautiful garden, with so much to see and enjoy, within walking distance of town.The local agent is charming, helpful and speaks good English. We were unlucky with the weather. Continuous rain turned the lane leading into town from a pleasant stroll into a quagmire. We ploughed through or got taxis. Despite weather we saw many attractive birds including toucan and tanagers. Binoculars in house for use of guests.

One suggestion. The enormous tv screen was of limited use as very few channels were available. We are not TV addicts but a dvd player or some English channels would have been useful on wet dark evenings. The wifi works well.

Amazing place in the middle of Mother Nature

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing and special place with a large and gorgeous yard. We rent from Mary for 5 days. Mary have 2 beautiful Golden Retriever who are the most wonderful dogs. We traveled with 2 kids of 7 years old and they had a blast. The property is very clean and save, and the kids enjoy playing outside with the dogs practically the whole day. You really get what you see on the website. The house is spacious and have all the needed amenities (in good working order) and more. The care taker Ofelia and gardener José were the best. They are always ready to help and provide extra information if needed. The owner Mary is very prompt in replaying to her emails and also do offer a lot of very useful information. There are plenty of information in the house about all activities you can do in and around "el Valle". We love the horseback riding, Canopy zip lining at El Choro Macho and the zoo. At the zoo make sure you go with a guide, that way you will see a lot more. We hid a bunch of restaurants but the 2 best ones were Restaurante Zapote and Restorante Doña Nella. We do recommend this property, especially to those who really want to slow down their pace and enjoy the beauty of Mother Nature. I will go back, but this time for a minimum of 7 days. Thank you Mary, Ofelia and José.

All That Was Promised And More

  • 5 of 5

Oh my, where to start? This house is a fantastic place to relax. There were three couples in our group and each had separate bedrooms and their own private bath. The kitchen facilities were perfect. The yard and grounds amazing. We're birdwatchers and very much enjoyed the gardens surrounding the house where we saw toucans, oropendola, motmots, a caracara and many species of songbirds. A small stream runs through the grounds and here we saw many birds come to drink. Mary's two dogs Leo and Brownie were here and we felt this was an extra special treat to have our own pets.

Mary had left us plenty of information about things to do and special places to visit while in the area. We always felt very safe here and also had the feeling that this was our dream house.

As for suggestions, we needed a little more info on how to use the cloths dryer (found out it needed to have bottled gas connected) and the washer could also use a slightly longer hose. We also think a few more bird feeders would be nice. At another house we saw them feeding fruit in a basket mounted on a pole and it really drew a large crowd of interesting birds. Hummingbird feeder was not attracting anything so we think it probably needed fresh food.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the wonderful review and suggestions. We are thrilled that you saw so many birds on the property and that you enjoyed this special place so much. The washing facilities are a bit tricky but the manual indicates that Jose the gardener will show you how to use it. Thanks for the suggestion of the fruit pole and more feeders which we can easily implement. Look forward to seeing you again.

Wonderful, perfect, awesome!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for a week. It has been with out a doubt one of the best stays and pretty sure is one of the most beautiful houses at El Valle. The house is warm, with 3 bedrooms/bathrooms and many great outdoor areas with great views that made our stay very enjoyable both for adults enjoying a nice wine or coffee as well as for the kids whom had plenty of space to run and play in the nature and even in a small river.

Also they have great service both from their administrator whom made herself always available with a smile and solution to any question or problem as well as the maintainance person.

I would recommend this house 1000000 times!!! Actually I want to move there for life!

Amazing find! The Garden of EDEN in El Valle, Panama

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to enjoy three nights at this country villa. It's like the Garden of Eden, newly discovered in the Republic of Panama.

Spacious, lovely home with gorgeous, lush grounds with views of the extinct volcano, and a beautiful stream which borders the property.

Plenty of room for a large family with three comfortable bedrooms. Plus the outdoor space - with several hammocks on a huge covered patio plus numerous seating areas is great for parties and get-togethers.

Walkable to El Valle's outdoor market for local art and farm fresh produce. Tons of outdoors activities all around the valley for hiking, biking, walking, etc.

We were very comfortable here. We'll definitely be back!
