Pleasantly Surprised!

  • 5 of 5

This home looks very nice on the website, but the pictures don't do it justice. Everything is beautiful and spacious. The views from the terrace are spectacular. We enjoyed sitting on the terrace and listening to the nearby stream every day after our excursions to explore the area. The grounds were also well maintained, and the Valle Escondido community amenities were great. We enjoyed the indoor pool, sauna and the 9 hole golf course.

There's a lot to explore in the general area of Boquete, the quaint town that is within walking distance. We enjoyed many of the restaurants recommended by the owners that are listed for you in the guest guide. We also enjoyed the local market on Tuesdays at the Fenix Cafe.

Joy, the property manager was there to meet us on our arrival, and remained available for any questions. The owners (Rod and Jan) and Joy were dedicated to making our stay at Casa Serena a wonderful vacation to remember. We will definitely be back!

The property was wonderful!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was above and beyond what we were expecting. The home was spotless, kitchen was more than well-equipped and the outside areas were fabulous. We stayed for three weeks, and it was not long enough! Looking forward to returning again and again.

Simply breathtaking.

  • 5 of 5

Better than home away from home. This home is situated in a supreme location, where the view is picturesque thru every window. The house is very well maintained and the owners made sure that the stay is of the utmost comfort. I challenge anyone to stay there and start any sentence with, " I need.." I really hated to leave. The people in the community are very welcoming, and there are plenty of restaurants and shopping in walking distance or just a short 5-10 minute drive. I will always stay there when visiting Boquete.

Lovely Boquete

  • 5 of 5

Casa Alto Serena was the perfect home to spend a month in Boquete. The house is beautifully furnished, the kitchen enormous and well supplied, and the outside deck was spectacular for bird watching and relaxing by the river. Rod, the owner, and Joy, the property manager, were so easy to work with and attentive if there were any problems. We highly recommend this beautiful home away from home!

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Rod's home was a fantastic experience. The home is equipped with all you need to feel at home. Kitchen is incredible!

The home is in Valle Escondido. This is a beautiful area in the valley to explore with excellent amenities.

We will stay here again when we return to Boquete.

Wonderful!! Makes us want to return!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Alto Casa Serena for 6.5 weeks, Feb. to March 2016.

Rod and Jan have thought of everything! Pictures do not do justice to this home. The house is beautifully furnished and supplied. There was an assortment of spices and other kitchen supplies for us. Dishes, containers, oven proof pans and dishes, pots, utensils... exceptional! For someone who likes to cook away from home, this is your place to stay! Joy, the manager is readily available for any concerns or questions. Water was never a concern during our stay. The location is very good. First thing we noticed was we could hear the river running from the terrace. Sweet sound. It is just up from the amphitheater, spa, gym, wellness center, and golf gift shop and #1 hole of a 9 hole golf course. You can see the ninth hole greens from the terrace as well. The Jazz festival was held in the amphitheater at the end of Feb. during our stay. We had the comfort of our terrace and close enough to hear the music. You will also see many kinds of birds. You get lots of sun on the terrace too. Beautiful views out the terrace and kitchen windows. It is 20 minute walk from downtown for groceries and fresh fruit and vegetables from local venders. There is an abundance of restaurants to choose from downtown, at very reasonable prices. It is safe to walk downtown and if you wish, you can get a taxi for $3 USD.

One thing we do have to mention is on weekends, the spa and pool area is used for weddings, which can be very loud. You may need to bring earplugs.

Rod recommended Daniel Higgins for a taxi driver. We did get Daniel to pick us up in Coronado and drive us to Boquete, as well give us a panoramic tour of Boquete and ride to the bus station in David. Daniel is a very dependable driver and very nice person. He speaks English very well, and gave us lots of info while driving. Five stars to Daniel as well! We caught the double decker bus to Panama City from David. It was a very comfortable ride and couldn’t beat the price of $15.25 per person!

In summary, this is a very nice area. People – expats, visitors and locals are friendly. There is so much to do: golf, bird watching, sightseeing, gym, zumba, aqua sizes, Spanish lessons, yoga.... the list goes on. We certainly were never at a loss for something to do!

Thank you Rod and Jan & Joy! You made us want to return to Boquete!
