"What we loved about this property location...smack in the middle of a history lesson! The owners and their manager were excellent to deal with. The neighborhood is a slice of daily life, with a twist..it is right next to the Presidential Palace.
Being only steps from at least 3 wonderful cafes, all with great outdoor patios and sometimes entertainment, was an added bonus.
Tbe view from the balcony was lovely, ..at night it was magical.
We walked to the seawall, the Panama Canal museum, and many churches. A great 2 weeks.

"We loved our stay with Marilyn and Jerry--they were truly wonderful hosts and also became good friends during our stay. They were more than gracious about everything and were extremely helpful in assisting us in finding transportation, and in getting around and planning our trips to the Canal, the enchanting Casco Viejo section of Panama City, and the amazing Artisans' and fish markets. We even enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner on the patio one evening with our hosts, who graciously prepared all the delicious fresh fish we got at the fish market.
This property is beautiful with a lovely yard, gorgeous pool and comfortable patio, all facing the Pacific. The view from the apartment is magnificent, and the sound of the waves lulled us to sleep at night. All was clean and very well maintained, and we were a convenient drive from all our tour sites. The Johnsons kindly supplied us with a local-service cell phone and even offered to do some initial grocery shopping for us. They could not have been better hosts and proprietors. Anyone would enjoy staying in this lovely environment away from noise and traffic, and with such marvelous hosts. We will definitely be back to visit Marilyn and Jerry again!"

"Great views of the Bay and Panama's skyline from every room. Within walking distance of a large mall and lots of restaurants. The roof top pool always had sufficient lounge chairs for everyone and the area has two barbeques for resident use. The gym is well equipped and available for all tenants. A two or three dollar cab ride will get you to most locations downtown. The islands on the causeway will be about $15:00. Mararita, the land lady was very helpful in answering all our questions and was quick to bring a new toaster when we noted the absence of one. When we experienced a 24 hour power outage she was as concerned as we were if not more so. To repay us for the inconvenience she and her daughter took us out for Sunday brunch at a beautiful resort. Our only complaint, coming from a small town, was the traffic noise coming from busy Avenida Balboa, and some of the furniture is in need of updating. Overall we enjoyed our four week stay."

"Just back from a fantastic 10 days at PVQ! Seven of us (all middle-age adults) stayed in the 4 bedroom apartment and everyday someone mentioned what a great location it was - and individuals in our group are not shy about voicing displeasure if they don’t like something. My initial concern in booking the space was that it would be too cramped for 7 people. But there was plenty of space for us to hang out together in the main living area, or to spread out by going to the covered patio area and pool in the back.
The bedrooms were very nice, and the kitchen was large enough for several of us to work in as we prepared communal meals. The kitchen was well supplied with equipment - the only thing we didn't have was a whisk to mix pancake batter, and when we mentioned that in passing, a whisk was dropped off the next day. It was great hanging up the hammocks on the patio and relaxing with the breeze blowing and the birds calling, watching the sun set behind the trees. I regret we didn't take more advantage of the patio by using the barbecue grill!
The level of service and attention given us by housekeeping staff and, in particular, by Karolina, the property manager, was phenomenal. Karolina answered so many of our questions - before we arrived and during the course of our stay - and helped us get our bearings and feel comfortable in our travel our the city. We used Francisco and Jorge as our drivers on different occasions and both were great. Bob, the owner, was also there while we were and was extremely help, service-oriented and just a pleasure to talk to. I think I speak for our group when I say, beyond loving the accommodations and the location, we felt like we were staying in the home of friends.
Individuals in our group are already talking about coming back to Panama, and PVQ specifically. Thanks Bob and Karolina and staff!
