  • A Bird Watcher's Paradise!

    "From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home. The property is a very clean, well equipped, very modern and beautiful home that will make one feel very comfortable right away. The Hosts, Lynn and Gerry, are very helpful in making you feel welcome as well. The property the home is on is beautiful and home to several species of Panamanian Birds who come to feed on The Longbons' bananas so you get quite a bird show. Location is perfect to explore the area. You do need a car to get around. We were really impressed and are definitely going to go back to stay there if we go to that area again. Loved every minute of our stay there. The dogs were a treat! Thank you Lynn and Gerry for your hospitality."

  • Great people and a great place!

    "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!"
