Nice property

  • 3 of 5

So here's the good and the bad. We have been renting from HomeAway for a long time and this unit was just a little different from the others. We typically stay a couple of weeks, here we stayed 12 days. The property is very nice and clean. There is a guide book in the house that lets you know you get two rolls of toilet paper and one roll of paper towels (or what is leftover from the previous guest)--I guess this is regardless of how long you stay. or how many people (we are 5) The directions for the internet are not correct. No where does it tell you that the water is potable, which I just think is helpful. It is also helpful to know that occasionally there is low water pressure as we were trying to figure out why there was no water upstairs and could not find the property manager, but the guys at the guard shack were very helpful. To note, this only happened once while we were there. It felt like the property manager tried to avoid us most of the time and we had to ask questions of the guys at the guard shack including what to do with the keys on our last day.

The kitchen is well stocked with gadgets, pans, dishes, etc. It has very nice appliances. Easy to prepare meals. What it is not stocked with is cleaners, trash bags, paper towels, a new sponge to clean your dishes, etc. There are nice towels and linens; however, the bedroom bed is the hardest thing that I have ever slept on and by the second night my back was killing me to the point I could barely walk. We took the extra mattress from downstairs, which was a full, not a queen and used it upstairs instead.

There are beach chairs, but they were very moldy and we had to clean them. There are hammocks, which were very nice. There is a TV; however, we did not use it. The AC works great.

One thing that was not clear to us is that this is a complex and the pool is a shared pool. It is not very big--more of a dipping pool and not well maintained--my children said the bottom was slimy and would not even get in it. The beach is also not as close as it might appear in the picture. The beach was also a little disappointing as it is really not a swimming beach as there are swirls that will pull you out and under. We experienced this on our first day. This particular beach was also not very clean.

This is our second trip to the Pedasi area and we really enjoy it there.

Perfect Beach

  • 4 of 5

If you love quiet strolls on the beach this is a perfect place. Playa Destiladeros is beautiful and, as attested to by other visitors to this condo, virtually private! An added bonus is the presence of an amazing restaurant less than a 5-min walk. The chef at Terry Desti is extremely talented and the staff very friendly. The drive into Pedasi is about 15 minutes and once there you have a choice of several good restaurants (we recommend Tortuga’s, Bull Beach, and 7 Mares). Our favorite for ceviche was Pedasianno (probably spelled wrong, but it's at edge of town right down from the Real Estate office). There's good bread at The Bakery and Casita Margarita serves breakfast every day. There are at least 2 markets in town. If you like surfing the drive to Playa Venao is about 40 mins and there are a couple of good restaurants/bars (we liked Ristorante El Panama). We were here for almost 5 weeks. The atmosphere at Ocean Lofts is friendly and relaxed and Loft 9 suited our needs just fine. The kitchen is well supplied and having a washer and dryer was a plus.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

Loft 9 is idyllic with 4 balconies and everything you need for a great vacation. The washer/dryer is an added bonus. Clean and spacious. Los Destilerados Beach is very beautiful, sandy, few rocks. The most people we ever counted on this beach was 9! The caretaker, Mark met us and was most helpful with everything. If you want a real, true Panama vacation this is for you. 15 minutes from town but far away from it all. Beautiful landscaping as well. The owners replied swiftly to our enquiries and gave us detailed directions from Panama City. Thank you Liv and Regina!

Great house, walking distance to the beach

  • 4 of 5

The loft was perfect: very clean, complete appliances , comfy beds, beautiful and spacious bathrooms, fast wifi. The communication with the owners was excellent, and Mark, the person who received us, was amazing. The loft itself is a VRBO 5 star.

My only feedback is about the condo, it was Ok and had some opportunities, for example the lawn has not been mowed in a long time, and the security guard was not present 50% of the time (they were very kind though).

Our plan was to spend 100% of the day on the beach, so the loft was perfect for our needs. Special thanks to Mark; I forgot my speakers in the loft and was very kind helping me recover them.

Comfortable, well equiped and properly finished two story loft walking distance from the beach.

  • 4 of 5

A great place to stay near Pedasi area, after the village and near the beaches. We spend three nights during Holly Week and had a great time, windy and sunny Panama still during this time of the year. Visited the near beaches but definitively the best is this one and Veano beach 20 minutes away from here. Find couple restaurants in the area, specially near Pedasi village. Great for a relaxing vacation near the sea. The loft is properly equiped and you can easily cook with the items provided. The finishing of the loft is very nice, with wooden and granite countertops in the kitchen, whole granite solid rock sinks, wooden closets and furniture in very good shape. Two queen beds properly equiped as well, comfortable matresses and no problem with sheets, pillows and enough towels around. Will return on July for sure.

Another beautiful day in paradise

  • 5 of 5

"Good morning, in another beautiful day in paradise" was my daily greeting to my family each morning during our two week stay. Our trip was a vacation of a life time for us mid westerners and our stay was delightful. Being right next to the ocean beach was fabulous. And as early risers, my husband and I especially enjoyed the second story verandas for sipping coffee, watching the sun rise and bird watching. During the intensity of the mid-day sun we enjoyed lounging in the shade of the front porch as the cool breeze kept us comfortable. The swimming pool area overlooking the beach with its fragrance of flowering trees, colorful native birds flying about and areas of filtered sunlight to prevent sun burn, was my favorite place to relax. We especially enjoyed the interactions we had with the other vacationing occupants and the local residence who worked and maintained the facilities within this small community.

Except for a few minor inadequacies that the facilities manager resolve quickly and the accommodations being a bit tight for five people, we were extremely happy with our experience.
