Why not enter the world of luxury and treat yourself to a vacation in an exclusive, enchanting Ocean Loft?
You'll Never Experience Anything Like the Pedasi Ocean Loft
The Ocean Loft is a luxurious two level home nestled within the lush tropical landscaping of a private and peaceful enclave. The Ocean Loft in Pedasi is undoubtedly one of the most exclusive properties in the whole of Panama or even Central America.
The tip of the peninsula from Pedasi to Playa Venao is the fastest emerging destination on the Pacific Coast.
Experience the charm and serenity of the Ocean Loft, overlooking the private beach of Los Distilarados. Wake up to the peaceful sound of the Pacific Ocean crashing against its shores.
Choose one of your four covered terraces to read a book or have a fresh cup of local coffee.
Blended seamlessly into the tropical landscaping is a shared social area with a pool that winds through the community to the Azueros Peninsula sand. Enjoy long meandering walks along the secluded, picturesque beach.
The community area provides a casual shaded setting that can be used for both relaxing and entertaining. Car owners can park at the entrance of the community in a guarded car park that is exclusive to Ocean Loft guests and owners.
The Ocean Loft come fully furnished including high end appliances such as: a 5 burner hob, large double refrigerator, two air-conditioning units, washing machine, and dryer. Each loft has two queen size beds: one bed upstairs and one Moroccan style lounger/bed downstairs.
The area surrounding Pedasi offers world class fishing, spearfishing, surfing, and diving. Pedasi is a charming colonial Spanish style town that boasts excellent infrastructure, an airport, shopping, emergency health clinic, and many other services you would need. The Azuero Peninsula is essentially what Cabo San Lucas, Mexico was 20 years ago. The peninsula is frequently compared to Costa Rica´s desirable Guanacaste coast for its dry temperate weather, clear blue pacific waters, and world class surf breaks.

Terrible experience I do not wish on anybody else in future.
To whom it may concern:
I am writing this review to hopefully prevent somebody in the future having an "Enchanting beach experience" on this property. I believe that VRBO should do a due diligence when sanctioning a rental property for its clients and even charging an administration fee.
I do not know where to start. At the beginning. We arrived at the dark stormy evening and realized that half of the lights did not work as did not an electric hot water unit. Quick check proved that breaker was tripped in the panel. We were happier for a whole 3 minutes, the breaker tripped again and the simple task of taking a shower involved two people, one in shower and the second standing by the breaker box resetting the old tired breaker every time it tripped. Next day we decided to take a swim in the pool on the property. Equipped with towels ready to take a plunge we found the pool dirty and empty. According to another unit's owner has been for the last 9 months and someone forgot to mention this on rental add. Trying to wash our stuff in the unit's washing machine was another difficult task as we found plug cut out. Small things like non working toaster, filthy coffeemaker, total lack of soap or cleaning supplies is almost not worth mentioning, just a simple fact. Summary is easy, enchanting experience we were expecting turned into a horrible nightmare. I sincerely hope that this review will be posted for this property so any future customer will get a fighting chance to make an own decision to rent this dump.
We will try to include a few pictures of our own because what is included with the add does not make sense. Regards. Jiri Slambor
TERRIBLE! NOR THE OWNER OR THE ADMINISTRATOR SHOWED UP!! 5 DAYS W/O POWER!!
We made and immediately payed for our reserve over a month before our arrival, Carnivals in Panama. The place´s owner name you can find it on this ad.
These were our family vacations. We payed a lot for our stay.
We arrived after the check in time, after 8 hours drive due to the heavy traffic, with a whole lot of food, and stuff.
To our surprise, there was NO POWER, the place was absolutely DIRTY and the Property Manager nowhere to be found. Not only that, we did not at least received and email in advance to advise of the situation. I called him and he had NO ANSWER and kept blaming the owner.
I sent an email, and got a reply from the Property Manager saying for us to "stay tuned" that we will be contacted
And I expected AT LEAST an email from the OWNER with some sort of apology or alternative.
We did not pay for that. We stayed because we had no choice; we were already in the middle of nowhere with no other place to go.
DONT DO BUSINESS WITH THESE PEOPLE.
We will be back soon
We had a fantastic and very relaxing time in the loft. It was certainly up to standards and everything was found just as described in the ad. The house was perfect for us, a small family of three, spacious and luxurious feeling, and fully equiped with everything you may need during your stay (hammocks, kitchen facilities, laundry machine). We enjoyed taking walks at sunset on the incredible beautiful beach, sometimes the whole beach to ourselves, and taking a cool dip in the pool while watching the view over the endless ocean. Our baby daughter enjoyed the daily greeting "hola" to the colorful big parrot that seemed to live in the premices. The design of the villa is spectacular and very tastefully decorated. A true pleasure and magic place, we'll be happy to visit again soon!
What a pleasure it was to host you and your family Jorge, I am so please you all enjoyed you stay so much and look forward to welcoming you back soon. It is always refreshing to get such positive feedback. I hope you have a great new years my friend.
Misrepresented and Uncomfortable
Our entry into Ocean loft was disastrous. The loft was dim because of numerous unreplaced light bulbs. There was no water upstairs. The fan did not work and the air conditioning was not turned on, despite our sincere communication about our arrival time.We were unable to contact the manager because of no WiFi and no cell service.We spent an awful night in the loft and, the next day we stopped at a luxury hotel nearby (who we mistakenly thought were the unit managers) to try to obtain help since there was no Wifi or phone service.
It took more than 13 hours for the loft to cool to a barely acceptable level. I am myself a rental manager of a beachfront unit and even in our part of Florida, which is much milder than Panama, that would be considered to be an unreasonable act. My very powerful (not energy conserving) air conditioning is turned on 24 hours in advance of renters arrival. We rented an apt. in Panama City, Panama the previous 3 days, and identical units had been turned on well in advance of our entry. My first e-mail to the manager (cannot tell whether he is the manager or owner) explained that I was at nearby hotel trying to get help after a sweltering night of burning up.
There are problems and conditions that are only mentioned after full receipt of money. Cell phone reception is one of them. There are others.(there is a dryer that you cannot use).
WiFiwas not working for us and was necessary for my husband's business. I thank th nearby property for allowing us to use theirs.
We burned up the first night, were barely comfortable the second night, could not communicate, use our shower or sink, or to find the loft to be as advertised as a 2 bedroom unit.. My husband believes they are guilty of illegal advertising by even calling the loft a 2 bedroom when in fact it is a one bedroom with a daybed in the living room.This is illegal in the U.S. Also, the pictures make you believe there is an ocean view, whch ours did not have.
Two other things- this unit may sound reasonably priced by U.S. standards, but by Panama standards it is at the tip top of expensive. Condition and service should be excellent. Also, do not think that paying by paypal will protect you from fraud of this kind- they do not cover "intangibles" such as rentals..
It was a horrible experience for us.
Loft 2 is a beautiful loft and many of our guests have been extremely happy while staying there. Every potential guest that inquires is well informed that the lofts are split level homes with a master bedroom upstairs and a second queen size bed is located downstairs in the open plan area, pictures are also sent so the guest is fully aware of the layout. AC units consume a considerable amount of fuel, it is therefore not common practice to switch them on before guests enter. The review suggests it took 11+ hrs to cool the place down this is a very much exaggerated and inaccurate comment. We can only apologise that it was not a comfortable night stay for this particular guest however if both ac units are switched on, the loft cools almost immediately if set at a low temperature. Having said that we have recently replaced ac units with very powerful energy saving units that work beautifully. The fan was switched off as the previous guest felt the ac was enough to cool the loft. It was certainly not broken and was switched on as soon as the above guest reported the problem. I agree this should have been rectified before the guest entered, please accept our apologies. Occasionally there is a water shortage where all lofts in the complex are effected, its is just a matter of maintenance team switching on the water pump. Water shortage is never a prolonged problem and gets resolved very quickly.
Again we are sorry your stay was disappointing and appreciate the feedback. We will ensure that these problems do not effect any guests future stay.
Great, amazing beautiful place!
The Ocean Lofts are the perfect destination for a relaxing holiday in beautiful and tranquil settings. We stayed here with 3 young children and loved every minute. The lofts are very clean and furnished to high standard. Ac and showers worked a dream. We also took a trip to Isla Iguana which was amazing! Beaches are perfect for surfing and long endless strolls! This is by far the best place to stay in the area!
Pedasi...a still unknown gem in Panama
The people in Pedasi are amazing!!! We only stayed 4 nights in the Villas and only complaint was that we had more time. The staff at the Villas were very accommodating and always more than willing to offer suggestions on restaurants and activities. We were able to find amazing food very reasonably priced.
The Villas themselves have everything you need in terms of modern conveniences and are very safe. The grounds are beautiful and when you don't want to walk down to the beach, the infinity pool is a great, calming place to relax.
For the more adventurous folks, feel free to paddle out in the surf, rent paddleboards, take a kiteboarding lesson or simply go for a great hike and check out the Panama wildlife.
I don't have a negative thing to say about Pedasi or our accommodations. I definitely plan to go back and stay much longer next time.
