Mountain Tranquility Garden Home In Guadalupe, Panama


Several writers have described this idyllic community in the mountains of Chiriquí, Panama as being similar to the fabled “Shangri-La” valley of the famous Hilton novel.

This area is most probably the most unique in all of Panama and this tranquil garden home embodies all of the best features of the area.

This 3 bedroom, 2 bath titled home is offered FOR SALE BY OWNER for: $129,000 USD.

The home sits on 1543.43 square meters of land.

It is bounded by a paved road to the south and west and a river to the north. It has municipal water and electricity.

This area of Chiriquí is noted for its high quality grass. A 5 minute drive away is a world famous horse breeding stables called HARRAS CERRO PUNTA. This horse farm has and still produces world famous racehorses including a Kentucky Derby winner.

The Gaudalupe area also grows almost 90% of all the fresh vegetables sold in Panama.

Eternal spring climate, fresh air, flowing streams - truly a Shangri-La valley.



A concrete pathway leads from the house to a pergola that overlooks the river. The property has tall pine trees and a wide variety of fruit bushes and trees including: Plum, pear, peach, grapefruit, strawberry, blackberry and lemon.


This year round river abounds with Trout, courtesy of the 1930’s era US ambassador.


As you enter the south gate you pass under a wide arch of brilliant red Veranera. A multitude of flowers are to your right and left.


The covered car port runs from the entrance doorway to a barbecue area.

To the left of these wrought iron chairs is the main entrance doorway.

This home has a very unique feature in that the hallway is on the outside. This enables the living room to be located in the peace and tranquility of the center of the house. Shielded from outside traffic noise.

The living room has tiled floors and hardwood ceilings.

An additional feature is the recessed lighting found throughout the living, dining room and bedrooms.


The compact kitchen comes with a 4 burner stove, refrigerator and microwave. Note the corner alcove that the owner has wisely turned a dead space into a colourful feature.


Going past the fridge you enter the master bedroom.

This small hallway leads to the main bathroom and also serves as a convenient computer room.


The second and third bedrooms are small but as they have an adjoining wall could easily be converted into one larger room.


The home comes with a washer and dryer. The owner wishes to sell the home as a “TURN KEY” operation. So everything apart from his personal effects will come with the house. This included cutlery, bedding, furniture and apliances. So all the new owners need to bring is their suitcases.

This home would suit an artist, writer or any creative person. Money will buy this house - but the mountain tranquility and peace that comes with this home - that is priceless.


This mountain Garden Tranquilty Home couldn’t be located in a more convenient spot. Literally, a 30 second walk will bring you down this quiet tree lined road to the QUETZAL LODGE & SPA. (The wooden building on the right of this picture) This local tourist attraction serves excellent meals including SUSHI. A few seconds further down the same road you have a SUPERMARKET. You would NOT need to own a car here as just about all your needs are within easy walking distance.
