Rancho de Caldera is a stunning eco-resort located on 50+ gorgeous acres. There are 9 individual furnished cabins plus 2 discount rooms, in addition to a spacious and breathtaking private residence and an employee home. There is a fully furnished restaurant as well as a gorgeous, infinity edge pool adjacent to the restaurant. There are 3 greenhouses and a fruit orchard as well as beautiful landscaping throughout the property. There is an open air stable area. Currently, there are sheep, cows, horses and chicken on the property. The views from every part of the property are incredible, year round, rain or shine, simply amazing.
The private home has 2 bedrooms and 3 baths, including a steam bath and an outdoor jacuzzi. Also, it has a huge living room/dining room area with 3 sliding glass walls and an open kitchen with an adjacent pantry. The master bedroom has 2 walk-in closets, a full bath with a large shower/steam bath combo, as well as a stunning, private outdoor, covered patio with a jacuzzi and outdoor shower. There is a large, covered porch surrounding 3 sides of the house, along with a lovely rooftop garden.
There are 3 sets of cabins, with 3 individual, connecting units in each set, for a total of 9 individual cabin units. Together, each set becomes, in essence, a 2 bedroom house, with the left unit having 2 queen beds and a large, walk-in double shower; the middle unit has a full kitchen, sofa set, dining area and (murphy) queen bed; and the right unit has a king bed and bathtub/shower combo. Each unit within each set connects through a hallway but can be locked for privacy between units. Additionally, there are 2 guest rooms, 2 baths, an office, exercise room, laundry room and employee lounge adjacent to the restaurant.
The yoga pavilion is just being completed. It is a 40' X 40' open space with no columns, ideal for yoga or parties or meetings. Additionally, there is a 10 foot covered porch surrounding the space on 3 sides, and there are 2 bathrooms. The entrance is made of coral brought from the US and we will stock the pond by the entry with koi by March 2013. The landscaping will be completed at the end of dry season (May 2013). The entire resort was built with top of the line materials and a qualified construction crew which has been on the project right from beginning.
More pictures of the resort, the cabins, and the property can be found on Rancho de Caldera's website. Both pictures and excellent reviews can be found on Trip Advisor.
Rancho is totally off the grid, with several hydro-electric generators to provide power in the rainy season and 76 solar panels to provide power in the dry season. There is a back-up diesel generator used for back-up power. New batteries are on order which should last up to 22 years and will be installed by mid-March 2013. Power from the grid is available if desired.
Rancho de Caldera is located in the town of Caldera, 25 minutes from downtown Boquete. The elevation is lower than Boquete and higher than David, creating perfect year round temperatures in the mid-80s. It is quiet and serene in Caldera, making Rancho a perfect getaway spot.
I operated Rancho as an eco-resort for several years on a limited basis as there was always construction in process. At the present time, Rancho is closed while I complete the construction. I reduced staff significantly when I closed Rancho, but my current staff is available for hire, and they are all trustworthy and long-time employees. I believe most of the employees that I let go would still be available for rehire. All licenses and permits for running this turnkey operation are current.
It took a full 8 years to build Rancho, with the finishing touches being completed now. As the owner/operator I discovered that I am a better creator than a hotel operator, thus I am simply living here now with several people renting the cabins; additionally there are periodic retreats here now, which are a perfect use of the facilities. Family beckons back in the US so I will sadly sell Rancho.
Rancho can be any number of things, depending on what you are looking for - a lovely eco-resort, a private residence with rental properties or an amazing family compound consisting of a beautiful residential home and 3 2-bedroom houses. With the addition of the new pavilion, Rancho is ideally suited as a beautiful retreat center , for yoga retreats, meditation retreats, health retreats, business retreats, etc. Serious buyers, please contact me at your convenience.
