About Ida

Theo and Ida are both Dutch.

Ida was born in former Dutch Indonesia and Theo in The Netherlands.

Ida has lived in former Dutch Indonesia for seven years, 21 years in the USA, 4 years in Italy, 15 years in France and the rest of her lifetime in The Netherlands.

Now she and Theo have started their lives in PANAMA.

Ida purchased this cottage in 2013

Why Ida chose Boca Chica

In 2011 they visited Panama for the first time and both fell in love with this lovely tropical country with its kind people.

Ida compared it with Indonesia when she was young!

In 2013 they started the building process of their dreamhouse and casita and they look forward to sharing it with their guests who are looking for a special location.

What makes this cottage unique

When we were visiting the small gated community

on which TANAMERA is situated, we fell in love with

the amazing views.

Furthermore the property is surrounded by nature and overlooking Playa Hermosa.

A great stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Tanamera. Great casita, the pool was nice, and Ida had my wife and I cracking up.

When you go make sure to stock up on whatever groceries you may need before you get off the highway as the couple mini-supers in the area have a pretty poor selection of meat and produce.

Friendly, helpful hosts.

Wonderful view of playa Hermosillo from the casita.

Large pool was very enjoyable, we used it 3-4 times in the two days!

I recommend it.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled in Panama for 12 days and also visited Panama City, Bocas del Toro, and Boquete. Staying at the casita near Boca Chica was the highlight of our trip! The casita is very clean with good air conditioning in the bedroom and a kitchen with everything you need. It is a short walk to the beach where there are fabulous sunsets. This is a quiet area so if you are looking for nightlife and lots of restaurants, it's not the place for you. We found swimming, walking on the beach, and taking a day trip to Las Lajas to be perfect!

Welcome to paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 nights at Tanamera sharing the cottage with friends and loved this particular corner of paradise.

Theo & Ida made it special by being available for questions, advice on dining, etc. while allowing us to maintain our privacy.

The beach is a short walk and truly wonderful for folks with kids (it's very peaceful with shallow water aplenty) as well as beachcombers, walkers, and those seeking a peaceful breezy spot for reading or relaxing. For those disinclined to walk 10 minutes to the beach, the pool is steps away and Ida & Theo generously share their lounge chairs and offer guests total private access to the pool during their stay. The house is very comfortable and the beds extremely so, outfitted in high end linens. The kitchen is a bit small, but for those wanting to eat in, there's everything you need to cook a meal. And if something is missing, Ida is ready to supply it. If you're not an animal lover you may want to think twice because you'll be visited by one of 3 friendly dogs and possibly a cat. The cat showed up our second night and meowed to get in for quite some time. But the sound of the wind and sea overcame any obstacles toward sleep.

Boca Chica is a quiet corner of paradise and a great spot for getting away from it all. For those interested in exploring, there are many islands to visit and it's easy to get a water taxi or local fisherman to take you on a tour.

You will want a car to visit here, so take that into account and enjoy!

Tanamera = WOW!

  • 5 of 5

We are winding up our month long stay at Tanamera and can only say the property is Outstanding. Ida and Theo are the perfect hosts and always there if needed. The pool the property the beach provides the best relaxing atmosphere that is possible. If you are looking for action, dancing and partying this is NOT for you, but if you are looking to unwind in a tropical paradise this is it! We have been coming to Panama for 7 years and this place is one of the best! We intend to return for sure.
