  • Shangri-La!

    "We arrived at this beautiful house like we were seeing old friends. Our accommodations were beyond expectations. Bob kept the pool immaculate. Arrived with a stocked fridge,air conditioning,clean pool,pool toys, snorkel gear,coolers for travelling,JUICER(lol),BBQ,day access to the beach and surrounded by fruits and herbs. There is nothing left to the imagination. We went out on day adventures quite often and there is lots to see that is in the vicinity of this house. Really enjoyed seeing Leo and Jake (dogs) every morning. Thanks again Ann and Bob!!"

  • Nice condo at the beach

    "The condo was nice, clean and well cared for. The owner clearly cares about providing her guests with a nice, comfortable stay. The furniture is nice, the beds are nice, the fridge is large, there is a patio, there is clean drinking water, it is on the first floor so you don't have to take luggage up to the 3rd floor and the directions from David are extremely detailed (down to the nearest 1/100th KM!). My biggest hesitation before going there was that the picture of the pool was not a good picture and I was worried that it might be terrible. The pool was very nice. It was large and had a large portion that was about 1 foot deep and there were plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. I cannot give the condo 5 stars because Playa Barqueta didn't totally fit MY definition of paradise but it might fit YOUR definition of paradise. It was quite hot so we limited our midday activities. The beach is wide (150 feet at low tide?), endless, deserted and flat (easy for walking). The downside is that everyone tells you, "Don't get drowned by the undertow." I'm not sure what percentage of people die but when you listen to haters it makes it sound like 100%. The beach is so flat you'd think you could play around and have some fun in the water but we decided to not have our 9 year old out there taking his chances. So, if your definition of paradise includes playing freely in the ocean this location does not fit your definition. However, if you are looking for a remote beach and a nice place to stay this just might be paradise for you. Two traveling tips: The directions start from the "Rey" grocerty store in David. Do your grocery shopping for the entire trip right there. If you forget anything you're looking at a 30 minute drive back to town. There is a tiny grocery about 5 minutes from Playa Barqueta but if you need a weeks worth of groceries you want to load up at Rey. Make a list in advance. Condos don't always have oil, butter, spices, etc... so try to think of everything. Tip 2: The condo owner (Nina) arranged a fishing trip and jungle adventure for us w/ a local guy (Alexander). The fishing didn't work out but we saw 3 families of (poop throwing) howler monkeys. That was awesome and although the monkeys hit me w/ some branches they missed us with the poop. We'll never forget that!"

  • About as perfect as you can get!

    "First and foremost, I have to talk about the exemplary service received from the hosts. They are truly welcoming and go out of their way, to be a resource for your visit to Panama. They are dedicated to their clients and are available to answer any question or request. Second... The location is PERFECT! Did I mention PERFECT!! Great coffee shop 1/2 block away, easy walk to cool bars, bistros, jazz club, micro-brew and to the causeway for a longer walk along the water. Third... the condo itself is very lovely and has everything you need for a stay... from kitchen gear, to great bathrooms and bedding, and wifi and satellite TV. It really was like a mini-retreat. I will definitely go back. Wish it was tomorrow! P.S. Check out Rudy's tours which are also available for purchase through the condo. Very personalized and amazing adventures in Panama"

  • Limpia, cómoda, acogedora!

    "Nos hospedamos en casa los Quetzales por una sola noche. Todo estaba muy limpio y ordenado. Las casas tienen su total privacidad, sin embargo no se puede hacer mucho ruido. El Sr. Dirk muy amable y pendiente de cualquier necesidad. Me gustaría que tuvieran un BBQ para la próxima vez."
