The many windows all look out on lively beautiful gardens which surround the house. The vistas of Volcan Baru and the Cordillera in the distance allow endless scenery changes as the clouds come in to play. The grounds are filled with coffee, avocado, orange, lime, and banana trees as well as all manner of flowering plants and trees. Enjoy your own private oasis of peace and beauty! The kitchen includes a large refrigerator, full size gas stove, and the any other appliances one might need. Boquete is known for it's availability of fresh vegetables, fruits, fish, meats and almost anything else one could desire. Squeeze your morning orange juice after picking them! The home is situated at 5000 feet in elevation within a small coffee estate. All the beauty, peace and quiet imaginable is enjoyed while walking the grounds. Located a short 10 minute drive to town, the location is equally close to the best hiking and bird-watching trails in the area. The owner, a resident of Boquete for the last decade, lives next door and provides a wealth of information and security. Come sit in our rocking chairs and let the beauty and peace of pure Boquete living wash over you. More

Beautiful cabin in the mountains above Boquete. Only a 10 minute drive from Boquete, far enough to seem private and remote but close enough for restaurants and shops. Cabin and grounds are well maintained and surrounded by beautiful views. Great trip!

About the neighbourhood
This tranquil area of Alto Quiel is the best coffee growing area of Boquete. We are above the town of Boquete just under 5000 feet in altitude and on the side of the volcano Volcan Baru. A walk into town allows for incredible vistas, bird-watching, and a chance to see how the locals live their sweet life here. We are only minutes away from some of the best hiking trails. Our property is located within an exclusive coffee 'finca' (producing farm) and includes orange, lime, banana, and avocado trees from which the guest can enjoy fruit fresh from the trees. The entire property is covered in flowers and many of the over 900 species of birds for whom Panama is famous.
