Description

Enjoy a private home while communing with Nature in this Vacation Rental . Alba Verde Guest House includes a full-size kitchen with large natural stone table capable of seating 6. Two large well-appointed bedrooms each offer a queen size bed, down comforters, high quality linens and private closet. Each bedroom has it's own private patio where one can soak in the beauty of sunrises and sunsets while surrounded by birds, butterflies and flowers. The spacious bathroom offers a large walk-in rain shower while viewing the myriad of greens outdoors. Located 10 minutes from town you feel lost in your own world. Hang in a hammock in the covered patio area so close to Volcan Baru you feel you could touch her. Wifi is available throughout this lovely home. 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.
