"We were visiting Panama to see Family. We wanted something close to them, but the high rises near them seemed less flexible with 3 kids. This was PERFECT. It is located right in the middle of downtown but it is at the base of Ancon Hill which is basically a tropical rainforest. The kids had a backyard, a pool, plenty of space and were able to hike up the mountain every morning to see toucans, monkeys, etc. It allowed us to take day trips and come back at night to cook or BBQ. The staff is very helpful and the other guests were friendly. The accomodations are nothing fancy, but the kitchen is fully stocked and the place is very clean. There are a lot of stairs if that is an issue. There is no laundry in the 4 bedroom unit, but the staff did a lovely job for $5/load."

"We spent one month in Sarah's condo while enjoying the sights, culture, shopping & restaurants of Panama. The location and the view are great. We enjoyed daily early morning and evening long walks on the Cinta Costera. It's a gorgeous, new, well-maintained seawall that extends to the fish market, the old town, Casco Viejo and for many more miles along the pedestrian/cycle path across the puento marino to the stadium. Every Sunday the city closes down four lanes on the Avenida Balboa for miles & miles from 6 a.m. until noon. They offer free bicycles and helmets. We cycled with local families & tourists and thoroughly enjoyed the splendid views especially along the puento marino where you can stop at observation areas & soak in the views to the city and the old town.
Panama is not just the canal. It is rich in natural beauty, history and culture and the people are the friendliest you'll find anywhere.
Although we didn't meet Sarah, she is well-organized and very quick to respond to emails. Thank you for an enjoyable stay."

"You will not be disappointed booking this apartment!
Get out of the city to relax in your hammock or catch some sun on the clean beaches.
Large kitchen to prepare your meals to eat on the fabulous terrace with stunning views. (restaurants readily available if this isn't your thing)
Plenty of space for my friend and I - we had the best stay!
Couldn't have been looked after any better by Jeanette & Thijs, even provided some fresh aloe when the sun got the better of us.
A narrow spiral staircase for entry so make your luggage light and small.
Would recommend for a chilled out break from it all!"

Spectacular view, Excellent house, good caretakers, OK island
"The views from the deck, living and dining areas are amazing. The sound of the ocean surf is constant and beautiful. The sunsets are gorgeous and calming. The caretaker Antonio was so pleasant to talk with and nice to have nearby. The kitchen is stocked with utensils and pans but not with any food or condiments. Stop at a grocery at bocas town and make sure to get water, salt and spices and oil in addition to food. Once at the house it isn't easy to find supplies - though there is a small grocery next to the water taxi pier. The house was super clean and the ac was so great at night after hot days.
Bastimentos itself is dirty with trash but the side of the island where the house is located is clean and well kept. This house was one of the nicest we saw during our stay. The local folks are nice without being overly welcoming, which is fine. I felt safe walking around day or night. Beautiful beaches, snorkeling and other activities are just boat rides away.
Firefly is a few minutes walk (bring headlamps at night) and worth the price - great food and drinks and the most romantic atmosphere. Also a good place to meet other vacationers.
I was able to wade with some kids in a nearby sand bar but otherwise the surf was too strong and I didn't have water shoes to try swimming in front of the house. Wifi was reliable. Didn't try the television but satellite with English channels is available."
