Named after the endless number of hummingbirds frequenting the property year round, this lofty home and its fabulous floral garden are bright and cheerful like the company it attracts.

Much of the 5 acre property is undisturbed  Rain Forest, that dips down into a marvelous canyon with a sparkling stream. It is thanks to the lush green belt, that the Hummingbird house is host to such an incredible array of birds, the species alternate with the seasons.  The Canyon also draws in mist and clouds from the passing weather patterns creating a micro climate of elaborate light displays and a constantly changing vista.

Behind the home stands the mighty Volcan Baru, a breathtaking sight and the highest point in Panama.



An open concept design brings in natural light from all directions, and the home’s focus is the incredible views down to the low lands of Chiriqui and beyond to the Pacific Ocean.

At more than 1300 meters altitude above sea level, a wood burning stove is a welcome addition, and on cold evenings the home offers a coziness, rare to find in Panama.

This lofty home has 1 guest bedroom with a separate entrance on the main floor, where the kitchen, living room and a bathroom are located. Upstairs is the master bedroom loft, with an ensuite bathroom and direct views from the bed out an over-sized window which frames the distant horizon. On this second floor is also an extra flex space which leads to the second story patio.  This space would make an ideal office or library nook.

It is apparent this home was designed by nature lovers, it is overflowing with out door living space.  Each room, no matter what floor, has access to the outdoors via verandas with quaint sitting spaces, quiet places to relax and observe the beauty of the surroundings. There is even a third story look out point, an ideal place to watch the sun set and perhaps set up your Telescope!



A second building on the property is a large 900 square foot workshop that extends behind the carport. Although the space is currently stocked with pre-cut wood for the fireplace, and with tools and garden equipment, this building has a loft as well, and would be easily transformable into a guest house one day. Plumbing is already installed to facilitate the renovation.
