Ein Traum!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten das große Vergnügen, zum Abschluss unseres Panamaurlaubes vier wundervolle Tage in dem wunderschönen Haus von Bob und Ann zu verbringen. Es ist einfach zauberhaft. Das Haus steht auf einer Anhöhe mit traumhaften Blick auf den Ozean und direktem Strandzugang. Der große Infinity-Pool direkt vor der Ferienwohnung war unser persönliches Highlight. Wir haben soooo viel Zeit darin verbracht. Die tollen Schwimmsessel haben wir geliebt. Und da in der Küche sogar schicke Plastikgläser für die Nutzung am Pool vorhanden waren, konnten wir auch hin und wieder einen Cocktail genießen. Frühstück gab es immer in dem kleinen Pavillon über dem Meer, man sitzt dort phantastisch, und in den Hängematten war es noch besser. Abendessen gab es auf der schönen Terrasse mit dem riesigen Gasgrill, den wir ausgiebig genutzt haben. Lecker... Die Wohnnung selbst war wunderbar geräumig, modern und mit viel Geschmack eingerichtet, super sauber und es fehlte einfach an nichts. Die Küche war perfekt ausgestattet und Bob und Ann hatten vor unserer Ankunft Bier, Wein, Softdrinks, Kaffee und einen kleinen Vorrat an Lebensmitteln bereit gelegt, so dass wir am ersten Abend und auch am nächsten Morgen auf jeden Fall versorgt gewesen wären. Auch die Bäder ließen keine Wünsche offen und es waren alle nur denkbaren Reinigungs- und Pflegeprodukte sowie reichlich Handtücher vorhanden. Man braucht eigentlich nur Badesachen und eine Zahnbürste mitzubringen.

Im schicken Wohnzimmer gab es eine sehr gute Soundanlage und einen großen Flachbildfernseher. WiFi funktionierte super. Die Klimaanlage ebenso. Vor allen Fenstern und Türen waren Fliegengitter. Das vordere Schlafzimmer hatte eine große durchgehende Front aus Sonnen- und Sichtschutzglas. Der Blick auf den Ozean beim Aufwachen war einfach der Hammer. Zu erwähnen wäre auch noch der wunderschöne, gepflegte Garten, in dem unter anderem Bananen, Kokosnüsse, Maracujas, Ananas und andere tropische Früchte wachsen.

Bob und Ann sind die liebsten und fürsorglichsten Vermieter, die man sich vorstellen kann. Super freundlich, zurückhaltend, aber bei Fragen und Wünschen aller Art sofort zur Stelle. Vielen Dank, liebe Ann, für das frisch gebackene Brot. Es war sooo lecker...

Wir danken Euch sehr für die wundervollen Tage. Es war ein riesengroßes Vergnügen, Euch kennzulernen. Alle Gute und viel Glück für Euch.

Mit herzlichen Grüßen von Ingo, Christina, Richard und Lea

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have to say thank you to Ann and Bob, who are excellent hosts. We enjoyed the two weeks at the lovely furnished appartment with all things you need for a luxury and relaxing holiday. We hope to come back next year to Boca Chica. In the meantime we wish Ann and Bob all the best.

Outstanding! Year after year, after year!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 6th year spending a month in Panama at Ann's Rental. Year after year, Bob and Ann exceed our expectations. If I could give them 10 stars, I would! They go out of their way to make sure your vacation there is nothing short of fabulous. Incredibly relaxing, amazing views, phenomenal sunsets. Definitely worth the visit. But just not in January! We're already booked!

Perfect service very lovley owners

  • 5 of 5

After 5 days in Panama City and an interesting trip on the Pan-Am Highway we finally made it to Ann's rental in Boca Chica.

We decided "last minute" to book at Ann's rental and what we found was way above our expectations. Ann and Bob a very nice couple from the UK that build their Dream home in Boca Chica, made us feel home from the first second. The fridge was already full with very good and fresh food and drinks when we arrive. So we could really focus on "to enjoy our stay". This guys brought vacation rental for us to the next level. From a cell phone to food AND drinks in the fridge to lil presents for our daughter (4 years) all was just perfect. If I could I would give them 10 Stars for their very nice and amazing location. The condo was very clean well maintained and as I said they are very very nicy people. The only negative point for us, was the weather when we stayed there during end of November (lots of rain). But still, Ann and Bob did their very best to make us the time as nice as they could and organized us all we wanted and need. The enviroment and pool are amazing and the view of over the bay is just amazing. I recommend Ann's rental as the place " to go to" when visit BC.

Best Sari, Pat and lil Sophie

Secret Paradise Location

  • 5 of 5

W O W - wish I could give more than five stars. If you have not already, read the reviews from VRBO to get the complete picture. This is an attempt to minimize duplicate information while adding our perspective.

This place is much better than described and exceeded our expectations. That was a challenge with all the glowing reviews.

This is a super-fantastic 2 bedroom apartment in a tranquil, ideal setting. We will certainly return, and of all the places we have stayed around the world, this one is at the complete top of my list.

Warning: if you are looking for lots of interactions with lots of people, this is not ideal. If you are looking to unwind with beautiful views and sounds (of birds, howler monkeys, and of the ocean), this is for you.

My favorite things here were the views, the pool, the initial stock of groceries, and the outstanding customer service from Bob and Ann. They truly welcomed us like family.

The journey from the Pan American Highway is scenic, and almost all paved. The bumps in the road for the last mile are certainly worth it.

I can hardly wait to return!

Beyond expectation!!

  • 5 of 5

First, this review is way overdo. We had the pleasure of spending 8 days with Bob, Ann and their 3 dogs. The apartment itself could not have been nicer with excellent views and every imaginable comfort. The property sits just above the beach which most days we had completely to ourselves along with the dogs walking with us. With the well stocked kitchen it would be hard pressed to find a better deal or more caring and gracious hosts. We wanted a very relaxing and pieceful vacation, and with the beautiful pool and rancho all to ourselves we could not have asked for more. So if you are looking for the perfect hosts, a beautiful property, and a secluded beach this is the place for you. We would go back in a heartbeat if we get to this area of Panama again. Thanks again Ann and Bob for helping our vacation one of the best we ever experienced.
