This is a lovely little casita set on a property with amazing views. We relaxed in the peace and privacy of being tucked away on the mountain while watching and listening to the various birds on the property and enjoying a glass of wine in the evenings on one of the private patios off our bedrooms. It was exactly the space we needed for some well-deserved down time after our hectic jobs, and we loved the cool weather up on the mountain.
Mary Ellen was a great host, providing everything needed in the house. We didn't have very much interaction with her during our stay as we rented a car and spent a lot of time with friends who live there, but she kindly picked us up from the airport and our time spent with her in the car was lovely and enlightening. She was very responsive and answered all of our questions before arrival.
Highly recommended and I would definitely stay here again.
The photos do not do this wonderful casita justice! Besides the wonderful smells and velvet-like air we kidded that our eyes almost hurt from the intense colors of the flowers! I have never seen such lush plantings. The owner takes exquisite care of every detail both inside and out. The other reviews speak of the hospitality, the comfy beds and views. All true! I also loved the fabulous shower, maid service, movies and front porch bench taking it all in. The drive up to the top of Mary Ellen's mountain transition you into almost a fairy tale. I would not stay any place else in Boquete. In fact, I would come back to lovely Panama just to be able to escape to this gorgeous spot. (The icing is that the owner is so helpful, interesting and fun.)
