This was my 2nd stay with this establishment, first time I stayed in the 'Garden Suite' located in the Big House (smile) which houses the individual suites/quarters and the there's 'The Casita' which is still on the property, but totally separate from The Hacienda (The Big House), I could hardly wait for my turn! And it was so WORTH WAITING MY TURN!!
Smiling as I write This was truly one of the most fascinating, relaxing, on the top of my lists for temporary in-between now and then, when time comes around I'd choose this if they will have me again. You need nothing more than your bags/luggage and your toothbrush Lol! The place was thoroughly equipped with pretty much every necessity, once you make an obligatory run to the various markets to shop for your own meals, outside of breakfast if you chose to cook, or if not there's plenty of restaurant's to choose from.
But I like the Boots on the ground sense of self preservation. Do come prepared for some rough terrain in places both in and out of town. The walk to the bus stop is partially rough gravel terrain, but a scenic walk less than 10 minutes. I'm looking to move here when I retire (soon!) and this wasn't my first time at the Rodeo, so to speak of..
Quincy and Ciela are two of the sweetest hosts you'll ever have or meet in you whole lifetime! They thought of pretty much everything, from a list of taxicab drivers, to cell phones for you use while there (minutes included for a small fee of $10) to the wonderful fresh, organic breakfast you get each morning.
The Casita had a full use kitchen with every item you'd every find or need in a kitchen, from pots and pans to toasters, coffee makers (including a French Press if you prefer! 2 Snaps and a Bag of Banana Chips to that! Haha!!) to Lanterns in case of a temporary electric outage. It could happen and they're prepared (Generators on Site) they know their stuff!. Toiletries and plush towels, comfortable beds and bedding. Didn't pack a hair dryer? Not to worry the rooms/Casita has one for you. Cedar closets, extra bedding, two terraces were private at the Casita, with cushions for all patio furniture. Spring Water for your personal consumption, not that you couldn't drink the water there; just how many places do you know of that make it readily available in your room/suite?? There's a small river you look at from the front patio with various small waterfall. It is so soothing and relaxing to listen to. If you don't want to hear it all the time there's earplugs (mainly for the neighboring dogs on duty, smile) but none of that was a problem for me.
This is the greatest use of space I've ever had the pleasure of staying in. Perfection at its finest!! Out of the way, but still accessible to taxi's and buses. Your spirit, you peace of mind will thank you for finding this piece of heaven on earth, in Boquete, Panama.
Thanks Quincy and Ciela, and Staff!
Still Grinning from ear to ear!!
