About Jon Meckem
Hello, My name is Jon. I'll be your host at Casa Valhalla. I have been in Panama for 8 years, please don't hesitate to ask me questions about he area.
Jon Meckem purchased this Apartment in 2011
Why Jon Meckem chose Boquete
We sailed to Panama in 2010 and visited Boquete in February 2011. we fell in love with the mountains of Panama. It reminded us of the Colorado mountains where we had lived for years.
What makes this Apartment unique
My dog loves the 12 minute walk to town and with the new sidewalks it makes the walk safe and easy. The people here are so friendly, welcoming you into the community immediately. With the large number of English speaking persons living and visiting here, speaking Spanish is beneficial although you can get by with out it. We love the many clubs and activities that the local retirees have organized to keep us busy and informed.

Outstanding owner. Will strongly recommend this property. Will definitely stay here on my next trip to Boquete 🇵🇦
Felt right at home.
We loved our stay at Casa Valhalla! The 3 bedroom unit is roomy and comfortable. The kitchen and baths are new and modern. The beds were comfortable and we slept better than we had in months. The back yard is a beautiful place to enjoy playing with your kids. The house is in a great location between town and hiking trails. It was so nice to feel like we were at home instead of in a hotel or hostel. I say book it while you can!
Everything Lives Up to It's Expectations
Jon and Jules have a great place to stay in Casa Valhalla. My wife and I rented the one bedroom unit out of this fourplex and we were not disappointed. A nice, modern, well kept up unit with everything you would need to be comfortable. The gardens surrounding the property are absolutely beautiful and you can help yourself to the various herbs being grown in the backyard. The personnel who take care of the property are diligent in their duties and are very friendly and will help you out in any way they can.
We stayed here on our first trip to Boquete and it was wonderful! Walking distance to town, safe, clean and beautiful. We sat each night and listened to the water flow through the river that is right next to the property. The flowers and landscaping are amazing. Although we stayed in the "efficiency" we had plenty of room and a nice kitchen. The bedroom is large with a fold out couch, closet and a nice bathroom with shelving for all of your toiletries. We had the opportunity to see the other apartments available and were not disappointed. Can't wait for our next visit, we didn't want to leave.
Just as lovely as the pictures
Casa Valhalla lives up to the description on it's website! We stayed in the smallest unit for a month, at the end of10ish months in Boquete.(We also looked at the largest unit, the only other one available when we needed it, and it too was lovely.) I was thrilled with the nice quality linens (including mattress pad, not at all typical of Panama) and well equipped kitchen. The kitchen included better than average pans, lots of storage for leftovers, and all sorts of handy tools needed to cook a variety of dishes. The grounds were wonderfully kept, and having the washer and dryer right there was a treat. (Over a year in Panama, and that was the only time we had a dryer.) The manager on premise, Madeline, was pleasant and helpful. It was a little bit less than a mile walk to the major grocery store, with gentle hills, so we never felt the need to take a cab. We would definitely staying there again.
Just Right for Two.
We came to Boquete for the first time and found this location ideal. Pleasant views and good exercise were bonuses on our daily half mile walk to restaurants or grocery stores in town central. Taxis are available for under $2 if needed. The location was safe in a good neighborhood with river views just across the street. The small kitchen was fully furnished and the owner was courteous and readily available for any questions. A couple of very minor issues with gas tank or light fixture were immediately addressed, and we felt comfortable about contacting Jules and Jon anytime.
You can use the backyard hammock to lull away quiet time while enjoying the flowers and landscaping.
There is a communal (4 apts) high efficiency washer and dryer on the back porch. Neighbors in the other apts. were pleasant and helpful. I would return anytime.
