    Descripción

    WE are a couple from Germany 55/60 years old.

    After a 10-year sailing adventure on our 37ft. catamaran from Greece to Panama, we finally "Landed" in Lago Gatun, Panama in 2014. After the wonderful time at sea, we did find ourselves desiring to live on land again and build something everlasting.

    We found our paradise on earth here. It was love at first sight !
    When we came here and quickly realized this is our dream come true.
    We decided to return nature some of what we have taken from it.
    Living a sustainable lifestyle on our property which we have decided to convert into a Private Reserve.

    We are on a 30-acre Peninsula, surrounded by the GATUN LAKE
    and all kinds of wildlife and plants.

    I go swimming every morning at 6.30 in the Lago Gatun since 7 years,
    BUT
    there are some Crocs and Aligators in Lago Gatun - you really have to dicide yourself if go dip into these.

    Our water supply comes directly from the lake and is treated omly by a UV filtration system ,
    so, it is the BEST QUATITY drinking water. We also use SOLAR ENGERY.

    SR. JONATHAN is the Manager. He is a 30-year-old, Panameno.
    A very welladucated, polite and interesting Man, he speaks perfect English and essanol ofcorse.
    He is a wealth of knowledge and a patient trainer in all kinds of skills.
    He is willing to help with whatever you need. You can learn, practice or improve your Spanish with him.

    You learn to handle a machete to open your own coconuts and many other interesting activities.

    We have three dogs who need to be walked down to the lake and fed twice a day.
    Mia (Rottweiler-Labrador-Mix, very friendly, she would prefer to be a kittycat) )
    Beans (Mr. Beans - our Lord and meanwhile Grandpa )
    Bravo the young one - always ready to play,
    3 lovely dogs that return all the love back.

    We have plenty of fruits such as papaya, mangos, pineapple, bananas,
    Platano's, Maranon, Coconuts and more from our garden.
    And depending to the season you can have as many as you can eat.

    This is going to be your home away from home and you will fall in love with the lash nature surrounding the house.

    Experience life the way it was intended to be.

    Down time activities

    During leisure time you can visit the lake to swim !, fish or kayak.
    Stroll around in the vast wilderness of the Peninsula and Birdwatch.
    Surge for Moneys and "Gato Solo" (Nasenbär) and Sloht (Faultier).

    We can arrange a adventurous horsebackriding-trip near Portobello.
    You could try Volleyball at neightfall in Colon with Sr. Jonathan
    (you do not want to visit Colon at night on your own ! )


    Come and Go

    Lastly, it is important to highlight that despite the fact we are in
    the middle of nature there is easy and fast access to civilization,
    the nearest supermarket is only 15 minutes by car and the city Colon is approx.
    25 minutes away depending on traffic.

    We offer an interesting and unique experience that you won't quickly forget, with comfortable amenities.
