“The house is lovely, peaceful, quiet with gorgeous views. Lots of light and space. Wonderful hikes on the property. Miguel, the caretaker, even though not English-speaking can and will help if there are any issues whatsoever. Definitely a must.”

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.

Andrew's reviewsAs a host (3)
“This place is just a jungle paradise, please consider that you might not have the amenities associated with the city and some inconvenience but if you are in the mood for an ecological retreat this is the place to go. Thabk you Priscilla foe the wonderful time we had. ”
“Our stay was exactly what we were looking for: a tropical escape, but with all of the comforts to make travelling with a one year old easy. VIstas Cope is the reason we chose Panama as a vacation spot -- and the home that Andrew, Priscilla and family have dreamed up and built together is absolutely magnificent. It was a real treat to feel sheltered, but never closed off from the cooling valley breezes, the sound of the river, and the view amongst the tree tops. We were treated to regular rainbows and passing toucans, and always in company of three loyal, playful dogs. Everyone was very helpful in helping us set up and explore. Special thanks to Priscilla for the toys and crib and above-and-beyond support! Thanks again everyone! We'll be talking about (and sharing photos) from this trip for a while! ”
