  • Incredible place!

    "We not only loved the place, we made a new friend (well, actually lots of them - not just Sandi but her pets and all of the Monkeys, birds, Iguanas, etc.). We loved being so close to the Rain Forest. We watched "Iggy" the Iguana climb the 30 foot tall avocado tree to eat avocados, there were butterflies and humming birds everywhere. Monkeys to watch every day, right in the back yard. Fantastic! Sandi has great dogs that we loved and even a cat that stayed right outside our door and was the friendliest cat I've ever met. The location was perfect. Close enough to town to make it really easy to get back and forth but not so close that you hear any of the music or parties plus close to beaches. Right between the water and the rain forest. How can you top that? Sandi started our stay by taking us to the only Irish Bar in town for St. Patrick's day and introducing us to some of her great friends. people that could give us some great insight into the area. We then went exploring on our own and had a ball. Sandi sent us to some good places to get dinner and to buy local groceries. She also arranged some great trips with people she knew (which helped a lot because when someone takes you to an island and says that they will come back and pick you up at 4 pm - you really hope that happens, and it did! He was there ten minutes early). I would recommend Sandi and her place to my closest friends, with no hesitation, the way that she built the house is genius, with her living in the upstairs and two one bedroom apartments below. We had plenty of room to relax, a full kitchen with pans, dishes, etc. and an air conditioned bedroom. We are thinking about retiring in Panama and if we are able to pull that off, we will definitely spend more time with our new friend, Sandi."

  • Beachfront oasis

    "After spending 3 weeks in a tiny little Casita in Coronado, we were thrilled to walk into this enormous beachfront oasis for the second half of our Panama vacation. The view is spectacular and the beach access divine. This is one of very few places we've found here with shade on the beach, courtesy of the palm trees and the man-made palapas just outside the secured access point. With lounge chairs you can roll onto the beach and the friendly guards watching over your stuff if you go for a walk, you can enjoy the beach here unlike in neighboring Coronado. We walked to the natural tidal pools at low tide and along miles of empty beach each day. The local fish market is a huge plus and we enjoyed the fresh catches of Tuna, Redfish, and Corvina. The unit itself is very clean and spacious with a large and well equipped kitchen, modern appliances and tremendous area for food prep. Seating in the living area is plentiful and comfortable. We only found a couple minor areas for improvement, we wish the bed was larger, and the cable service for the TV didn't work during our stay. Otherwise, it was perfect. There are 6 restaurants within a stone throw from local fonda to the top rated Bahia Beachfront restaurant and a choice of 2 local super minis. Transport to the highway is easy on the local bus for 30 cents and from the highway you can easily get anywhere from Penonome to the city in about an hour. Lots of activities here as well, a pool and foosball table, ping pong, gym, library of novels in the common area and good wifi in the unit. Staff are friendly and helpful. Booking was a bit more difficult with contracts and less payment options but worth the effort in the end."

  • Comfortable home in a quiet location

    "We enjoyed staying at Tera's home. It was comfortable with a huge porch and wildlife all around us. There is one large bedroom with a very comfortable bed. There is a smaller bedroom with bunkbeds. The living room and kitchen are plenty big for a small group. It would be nice if they could stock salt and pepper and perhaps sugar so you don't have to buy it. Lots of towels available which was very nice and appreciated. I thought the shower was fine and the water got very hot if you wanted it to get hot, my friends thought it could have a little bit more water pressure. No one had any real complaints though! We felt very safe there. You are really in the wilderness out here which we enjoyed. We saw howler monkeys outside in the trees right behind the house. One day it rained very hard and we saw a caiman in the water below the bedroom window (2nd floor). So cool. Javier even killed a poisonous snake in our driveway. This is not a complaint. We were happy to be in a natural environment. I say this because if you are bringing children, I would stay with them in the yard just to be careful. We didn't get to see the sloth but we looked for it. The house is about a 5 minute taxi ride into town. You could walk into town but we didn't quite feel comfortable walking down the road because of the cars, but several locals were walking. You can walk the other direction and go over to a little beach place called Skully's. To go to a big beach, you will take a taxi into town and then hop on a water taxi, or you will take a taxi about 30-45 minutes (round trip was $35) then a water taxi. Javier was attentive, polite, friendly and helpful. He can call the taxi's for you and help make arrangements for trips if you like - this was very helpful. We were on a "girls trip" and we are well-traveled and independent. He checked in on us a couple times a day. Personally, we wanted a little bit more space from Javier, but we understand he was trying to be helpful and make sure we had a good visit. He is a very nice gentleman. All around great location, great house, great people! We had a very wonderful, amazing trip and this house was perfect for us. We appreciate Tera letting us stay here."
