About our home

We are very pleased to offer our beautiful, modern, comfortable house designed in an eco-friendly in harmony with its mountain surroundings. It is conveniently located only 2.5 hours from panama city in a beautiful part of Panama near a cloud forest national park. It is a perfect destination for any amount of time. So much to do or not do. It has four bedrooms each with private terrace. The kitchen, living room and dinning room are in a large open space overlooking the rolling hills and forests. We have a few kilometres of trails within the 17 acre property which wind along the hill and down to the rivers through forest, which we are naturally regenerating. There is also a small pool , several decks with hammocks for relaxing, a BBQ, a fire pit with night lights, and a set of tree houses for children.

We have a live in caretaker who lives in a nearby house on the property. We use a cleaner from the local village who would be available for hire. We also have chickens so lots of free range eggs for you. The property has many mango trees, citrus trees and lemon grass - all available for you to pick and eat if available. We also have 3 dogs that are very friendly..

Within the area there are many hikes of varying length and difficulty through forests and with waterfalls. Pacific beaches are around an hour away.

We have accumulated sufficient points so now are focused mainly on classic swaps. Visitors are requested to pay a $50 cleaning charge to be paid at the property on departure.

Where is it?


Our house is located in the mountains on the way up to a national park, Omar Torrijos, which is a cloud forest and famous for birding. There are a variety of hikes in the area both within and outside of the national park, with lots of rivers and waterfalls. The area is rural with a lot of pasture land, small farms and forests. The house sits in 17 acres of natural forest (we are promoting natural reforestation) bordered by 2 rivers. there is a small town 10 minutes drive with basic shops and local eateries Half hour drive is a main town with supermarkets, restaurants, a fruit and vegetable market. Beautiful Pacific beaches are an hour away.

Walks in the park
We have several kilometres of trails within our property. For those more adventurous and serious hikers there are many longer trails in the national park and we can hook you up with a very good local guide.
