Patty purchased this condo in 2006

Why Patty chose Panama

We chose to purchase this property due to its great location and amazing views. Another reason is that Rudy used to come here as a child when it used to be part of the Canal zone in the days when the Americans were operating the Canal. This particular area was where American generals once inhabited their majestic homes…some have been renovated & some were replaced with low rise condominiums – no more than 7 floors…making this area very exclusive with only a handful of them.

What makes this condo unique

The views, the lush surroundings & riding the bicycles on the Causeway that are provided with the rental!

Altos de Amador

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited Panama in August for a little shy of 2 weeks. We had the good fortune to select Patty and Rudy's one bedroom condo in Amador. It was clear from the very beginning that we had chosen wisely. Rudy was promptly at the airport to pick us up the night we arrived. He helped us to find a place to eat even though it was late, and their gracious hospitality was extended even further. Patty had sent along some home made treats that we were grateful for the next morning. The condo was professionally/tastefully decorated and spotless. Patty made herself available throughout our stay to promptly answer every question that we had, and they were many. They even provided a cell phone that we could use locally. These two think of everything that a guest would need and want and made it so. Transportation arrangements back to the airport made by Patty were also seamless. I would certainly stay with them again, and recommend the same to family and friends.

Exceptional apartment - great hosts - exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very spacious, full of natural light and is tastefully decorated which makes it feel like a "home away from home." Not to mention it's a hop and skip to hotspots like Casco Viejo and the Albrook Mall.

We enjoyed our time at the condo more than the the 5-star hotel we stayed at the first two nights. We wished we could have stayed longer!

Rudy and Patty were very accommodating and give you all the details you need up front. If you have additional questions along the way, they reply swiftly to your inquiries/requests, which is refreshing as this is NOT typical in Panama.

We certainly plan on staying there in the future.

- Thanks again Patty & Rudy

A little piece of heaven.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was one of four condos we rented while traveling around Panama and this one was the best and we had some good ones. The decorating was very creative and stylish (I am trying to simulate the artwork in the hall). I have never seen a condo so clean, kudos to the staff. I really liked the area because you were a short ride from anywhere or a even a beautiful walk. Great view from the terrace, great security, and Patty and Rudy were always willing to help with suggestions and directions which was priceless.

Beautifully done!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the nicer places my husband and I have stayed - very clean and attractively decorated. Sunshine floods in the large window overlooking Panama City skyscrapers. Everything works as it should.

Very comfortable bed. Favourite things: bicycling along the causeway, watching the ships entering the canal. Negatives (every place has a bit of a downside): no close grocery store (although there were a couple of small ones a walk away). This apartment is on the 4th floor and there is a roof top deck on the 8th floor where one can watch the ships or enjoy the sunset.

Owner's Response: Gracias for your review and pointing out the how sunny this condo is and yes it is a treat to be able to enjoy the sight of the ships crossing the Panama Canal from the top floor terraces...incredible views! Wishing you many more happy travels:-) Patty & Rudy P.S. yes at the moment there are only little convenience stores...although a gourmet one can be found on the causeway and there is a very large one 10 min taxi ride away!

Loved, Loved, Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 8 days and enjoyed every day of it. Rudy and Patty were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcomed. The condo was the perfect size for us and had everything we needed plus more. We especially appreciated the mobile phone and small card we could show a taxi driver to get us back home. The location is convenient to many cultural activities, restaurants and shopping. The property description tells it all. Would we stay there again? Absolutely!

Great location,great view and great hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 5 nights and couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. The condo was great for two people and we loved the view. The kitchen is well stocked and we appreciated the spices and condiments that were provided. Patty was very quick to respond to questions both prior to and during our stay. Thank you Rudy and Patty for making us feel so welcome in both your home and your country.
