"The other reviews accurately portray the condo and Chris and Maureen were very helpful both before and following up, as was their local manager. It was very quiet there out of season although more locals arrived at the weekend and the beach can get noisy - but that's Panama! It is not a base from which to tour Panama. If you want to do that, It might be best to start off in Panama City from which all roads radiate. Having done that, you will need to go to this condo to recuperate from the driving. One last thing. Being on the 11th floor, we were usually able to generate a nice breeze and hear the waves at night. Also, the lifts (elevators) were fast and efficient, so you don't have to spend your days waiting for them either."

"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."

"We searched for a place where we could really relax as a family of four and we found it. We had more space than we needed and all amenities we expected and then some (such as the kayak or the dryer). While it is not as separated from the village as it may seem on the picture, you can be all by yourselves. Still, in no time you can be downtown with a cab (60cents). The kids loved to go back by watertaxi. Chris was a great manager and he reacted right away when contacted but never disturbed us in any way. If you stay in Bocas del Torro you must consider this house. It will host easily a small crowd of up to 10 people. Enjoy!"

"My wife and I spent a week in this property and highly recommend it. The location in Casco Viejo right by the presidential palace is the best in Panama. Steps away are many great dining, entertainment and historical venues. And if you are the type who is concerned about safety in an unfamiliar environment, you won't worry here. Casco Viejo has 'Tourist Police' liberally assigned at virtually every corner. Many police are stationed around the Presidential Palace, and consequently adjacent to this lodging. You couldn't find a much safer environment.
The apartment itself is spacious, with large rooms, high ceilings and old world charm. It is well equipped and furnished to match the era of the architecture, it was delightful.
The proprietor was very helpful with everything we asked, and even helped us work around a medical problem I had at the time.
Be sure and explore all of Casco Viejo and walk the Cinta Costera to downtown Panama City. That was fabulous. Also not to be missed is the Mercado de Mariscos (seafood market) adjacent to Casco Viejo. There are many restaurants/seafood stands surrounding the market, serving the freshest possible catch. You can get a nice cup of excellent ceviche for $2.50 and the became a lunchtime staple for me. Go through the seafood market to select from freshest possible catch straight off the boat and get your dinner items to take back to the apartment and cook. Prices are about virtually nothing compared to what we pay in Florida. Corvina (they say it is Sea Bass) costs $2.50 per pound. About 10% of what we pay for Sea Bass here and it was excellent.
If you are feeling a little more adventurous, go to the Mercada de Abastos in Curundu (a $2 taxi ride) for fresh fruits and veggies straight from the farm at prices comparably cheap to the seafood market."
