"We had the pleasure of staying with Sarah Booth at one of her Casistas on her property in Playa Coronado, Panama. This was like renting your own private beach house. There are four comfortable well appointed and very clean Casitas on her property, each with plenty of living space and all including large fully stocked(pots, pans, utensils, dishes, spices) and appointed kitchens (not kitchenettes, but full kitchens with full sized appliances). You will also have the use of the well appointed and beautifully maintained tropical gardens and lovely pool area with plenty of seating areas and a full outdoor kitchen and separate grill area. From the moment you arrive, Sarah has your every need addressed. She aims to make your stay as perfect as it can possibly be. She and her property managers are experts in everything Panama, and know this beach location well and can recommend local restaurants, places to see, trips to take, if just sitting on the beach and relaxing isn't your thing. The house is walking distance from the beach. The listing for this property is spot on, so what you are seeing on the internet, is completely accurate. Dealing with Sarah when making this reservation was the easiest transaction I made during our entire trip through Panama. Our room had a king sized, very comfortable bed, TV with every imaginable channel (but who needs TV in a place like this) and plenty of storage for luggage and clothing. We also had a large clean bathroom with plenty of space to spread out your stuff. The AC unit and fans worked well for the hot steamy nights, but often the fans were just enough. The privacy this property offers is one of its best features. To be able to enjoy the privacy of the pool in that fabulous yard without the noise and distraction of hotel guests coming and going, was tranquil, relaxing and puts these accommodations in a class by themselves. You wake up to the sound of the birds in the trees outside your window. We were the only guests for two of our four night stay, which was an added bonus for us, but even when we shared the space with other guests, there was still plenty of privacy, lots of room for all and we never felt that our space was invaded or cramped. We stayed with her for four days and wish we could have stayed longer. Sarah and her Casitas are a Gem!"
