Explore the wonders of the Panama rainforest and return to our magical tropical home! This unique house and pool is a wonderful place to escape the hustle of Panama City, celebrate nature, and enjoy family and friends. Gamboa is a safe, quiet town embedded in the Soberania National Park; it is the entry point to Pipeline Road, some of the best birding in the world. Or take leave of the forest and watch manatee, while fishing for peacock bass in Gatun Lake or paddling kayaks up the Chagres River.

One of the many unique features of Bird House is opportunity to use our Rio Mar surf platforms in San Carlos (also listed on AirBnb). Located about 70 minutes from Gamboa near a beautiful Pacific beach, our platforms permit our guests a wonderful beach experience to complement their Panama Canal and jungle adventures. Guests who book Bird House for a week or more are offered one night gratis at our Surf Platforms (midweek, depending on availability -- we will do everything possible to ensure availability).

Now back to Bird House and Gamboa.

Our tropical house brings a new design to the former Canal Zone territory of Gamboa. This three-story house is a one-of-a-kind space, designed to respond to the natural and cultural attributes of Gamboa.

The home features an environment-friendly design constructed in concrete and plantation teak louvered walls. The ground floor has A/C while the first and second floor do not; the oversized eves shade the sun and the louvered walls and large screen doors direct the airflow of prevailing breezes, keeping the 1st and 2nd floor well ventilated. The open layout of the house permits an inside-outside approach to living with nature that accentuates the sounds, smells and views of the surrounding tropical forest and Panama Canal.

This house has three floors (second, first and ground)

* The second floor features a master suite with a balcony that overlooks the interior courtyard, the pool, and views of the Panama Canal. This room was designed to take advantage of the daily path of the sun and natural site air movements to create a bedroom with wonderful light and natural ventilation. Beautiful high-end finishes are featured in the double bathroom.

* The first floor has a modern open style kitchen with large marble countertops connecting to a spacious living and dining room with a 25ft ceiling. The kitchen is well equipped and a delightful space for cooking and entertaining. The living/dining room has a family table with bench seating and end chairs for 10 and beautiful custom made couches and chairs, designed by the owner. Two large decks open off the kitchen and living area via large sliding wooden doors. When opened, there is a seamless connection between the outdoor and indoor spaces, creating both visual and physical expansiveness.

The larger deck overlooks the interior courtyard and features: built-in bench seating, a 10-meter swimming pool, a Japanese style shower house, deck furniture, and a gas BBQ. This is an ideal place to relax by the pool, watch hummingbirds dance around the interior courtyard and enjoy dinner with views of the tropical rainforest.

*The ground floor is the only space in the house with A/C. The ground floor has three single bedrooms, each approximately 10’x12’. Each room has a built-in bureau, closet, desk and relaxation nook with views into the interior courtyard. Each room opens into a large, 20’x30’ air-conditioned space with a pool table and day beds that are great for lounging. The ground floor bathroom area has three sinks adjoining two bathrooms, one with a toilet and bathtub and the second with toilet and two showers.

A few things we wish to plainly note:

**Gamboa is a town at the end of the road on the edge of Parque Nacional Soberania and Lake Gatun -- the nearest grocery store is 20 km away! There is a small convenience store that is a 7-min walk from the house where simple staples and cold beer can be purchased during limited store hours. Please think about food before arriving to Bird House and Gamboa. There are only two restaurants in Gamboa, one serves simple meals and requires a reservation a day or two in advance; the other is the Gamboa Resort (read the reviews).

PLEASE DO NOT BOOK THIS LISTING if you are afraid of nature or its creatures. Understand you are surrounded by tropical rainforest, one of the most diverse ecosystems in the world. You will hear howler monkeys and see many birds, agoutis, monkeys, anteaters, and if you keep your eyes peeled sloths! There are bats in Gamboa. Occasionally, one will make it into the house if we leave the doors open around dusk. If this happens, we do not offer refunds; we will ask a friend to come over and help shoo it out unless you are enjoying its company! We do until we worry about the bat's health and help it find freedom.

Vieraan pääsy
Guests have access to the entire home, pool and grounds. Our house will be yours to enjoy as you wish. You will have complete privacy, although there is opportunity to arrange for maid service and/or a cook if you so desire. We ask our guests to pay staff directly as we do not take a percentage of their compensation. We will let you know how much staff expect to receive for their services.

Hi, I'm originally from the beautiful coastal town of Savannah Georgia. My husband I and moved to Panama in 1989 to become part of the Smithsonian in Panama. We have happily raised our three children in this vibrant environment and have come to call Gamboa our home. We are changing the direction of our vision and have decided to open our house to others so that they may experience the last historic tropical community still successfully occupied along the Panama Canal. Gamboa is a true gem for the naturalist as well as a golden opportunity for the history buff. In addition your stay in our house will be an opportunity to connect with nature in a unique piece of architecture. I hope you enjoy it.
