Each apartment has its own kitchenette
with a dining table
and views to the front side. This is also the street-side (main) entry, accessible
with a keycard.
The kitchenette is equipped with a gas stove and sink in stainless steel on a granite worktop, dish rack, refrigerator , pots, coffee machine , dishes, cups, cutlery, and much storage place.
A microwave oven may be available on demand.
Each bedroom has a comfortable queen-size double bed
, a closet
, two nightstands
, and a desk
that can be used for the ladies' makeup as well as for work with your laptop.
Close to it, there is a 110V wall socket and a small inwall personal Wifi router
with a LAN outlet
for maximum security, and a USB charging socket
for your cellphone.
Bedlinen is generally changed weekly, included in the price, or on demand for a fee.
A 39" Android Smart TV in the bedroom allows you to browse for news or see movies from Youtube, Netflix or HBO,
While Youtube, Vimeo, and similar sites are free to view for everybody, you will need to have a subscription to see movies or series on Netflix or HBO.
If you don´t have one already, it is easily set up and not expensive. You can usually subscribe for just a month, which is cheaper than a single movie theater visit for your family.
Please be aware that at this time we do not offer television via satellite or cable, but only via the internet. There is simply not enough demand from our guests to justify the monthly fees for subscriptions. If you stay longer and require these services, please contact us in time before your arrival. We will be glad to install them for you for a fee.
Most news providers like CNN, ABC, Fox, Univision have their own websites where you can watch the news and see talk shows.
The Chrome browser app is installed in the Smart-TV for this purpose. Some of these providers offer free access to their programs, others may require a subscription.
We recommend also to watch Netflix via its website because some guests have reported problems with the Netflix App which apparently does not allow you to delete your log-in data after use.
In our apartments, we offer fast internet (60 Mbps) via private Wifi, where each apartment has its own channel and password, and via LAN cable. Even high-priced hotels often have only common WiFi for entire floors and no LAN outlets. Private WiFi is safer than shared WiFi, but the safest solution, especially if you want to follow your business during your holidays is a LAN cable. Please read here why: "Please use ethernet cables whenever you can. Please."
If you have an Android phone, we recommend installing the app "EShare for Smart-TV" which allows you to use your phone as a smart remote control with a touchscreen mouse and a keyboard and to hear the sound over your earphone while watching a movie on the big screen.
There are similar apps for Apple devices.
We offer a paid laundry service for guests with a stay up to 2 nights or the free use of our washer and dryer for longer stays.
In only 5-8 minutes by foot, you reach the first very good restaurants
and in less than 15 minutes you reach the central park of Boquete which is also this town's center of life, with its public offices, the public market, and the many restaurants, shops, and supermarkets around it. Although Boquete is generally a quiet place, the restaurants, bars and a small local beer brewery with live music offer nightlife for those who don't want to pass the evening in their apartment watching tv, maybe from Netflix, HBO or Youtube on their Smart TV.
Taxis are cheap and we have half-hourly bus connections to David, the capital of Panama's most north-western province Chiriqui.
