Our casita was very comfortable and clean with a great advantage of having a neighbor who does the BEST massages. Getting around town is so easy and very reasonable. Mary Ellen is a...

This was our third trip to Panama and Boquete, and the best trip ever. We stayed at Alba Verde for 12 nights. While Mary Ellen, the owner, described her rental in glowing terms, her description, while objectively accurate, did not come close to describing our experience. Whenever venturing out and about, we always found ourselves wanting to return to this...

We spent a week at the house in December 2016. Great location, wonderful host and surrounded by all kinds of fruit trees. Off the beaten path with great views in all directions. Home is well fitted out. Kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of hot water and comfy beds. The decor was perfect and just well thought out....

Thank you so much Doug. I am sorry I was not there to meet you both in person but so glad Cat was helpful and that you enjoyed the beauty, peace and serenity of the Guest House and my gardens. Come back soon! Mary Ellen

About the neighbourhood
This tranquil area of Alto Quiel is the best coffee growing area of Boquete. We are above the town of Boquete just under 5000 feet in altitude and on the side of the volcano Volcan Baru. A walk into town allows for incredible vistas, bird-watching, and a chance to see how the locals live their sweet life here. We are only minutes away from some of the best hiking trails.
Our property is located within an exclusive coffee 'finca' (producing farm) and includes orange, lime, banana, and avocado trees from which the guest can enjoy fruit fresh from the trees. The entire property is covered in flowers and many of the over 900 species of birds for whom Panama is famous.
