Drive off the busy highway on the ouskirts of San Carlos and arrive at this absolutely beautiful and well kept oasis. The house has all the amenities one would want. The grounds were immaculate. We spent our days mostly poolside enjoying the cabana and dipping in the beautiful pool. The owners go out of their way to make one's life as comfortable as possible. Love this place
This home and surroundings were breathtaking! The home was very tastefully decorated and included everything you could possibly need. It was well-maintained and spotlessly clean. It was hard for us to tear ourselves away from the grounds to do any touring around the beaches, which are a 5-minute walk away. It is so peaceful, and at the same time, we felt safe enough to explore the surrounding areas. The groundskeeper greeted us when we arrived and explained how very thing worked. He was also available by phone for any additional questions. Wifi is also available...a nice bonus. There are great restaurants both within walking distance and by car just a few miles away. We would definitely recommend this place. It was a wonderful experience.
We couldn't have had a better 5 weeks than the ones we spent here in San Carlos. Fabulous grounds, inviting pool and bohio, great internet service, and more than accommodating home. After spending four of the last five years in Costa Rica, we had decided to try Panama for a change. What a great decision we made! We loved being 10 minutes from fantastic grocery stores and other services, wonderful restaurants, and only an hour and a half from Panama City and its tours, etc. We will return to this place in the future. Hands down the best!
We absolutely loved this place!! You never know what a place is really going to look like when you get there and often times the pictures are better than reality but not here. This property is spectacular, the amenities are modern and the home is very comfortable. We spent countless hours just relaxing by the pool and also enjoyed the many activities Panama has to offer. The description on the web site was accurate and the owners were very helpful and friendly. They answered all of our questions as we prepared for the trip and we could not have hoped for a better experience. Highly recommended!!!!
Passing through the entrance to this property you enter a lush, tropical paradise and instantly congratulate yourself on your vacation destination planning. We lounged away the hours in the hammocks hanging in the huge thatched outdoor space, and also enjoyed floating in the pool in the shade of the palms, and photographing the property's banana, lime, papaya, and mango trees. When we could motivate ourselves, we took the scenic 5-minute walk to the private beach where we saw hermit crabs and dugout canoes and enjoyed the rolling waves of the warm ocean.
The house is well-appointed. Beds comfy. Rooms cute and clean. Beautiful views. Caretaker lives on site. The owner was responsive to our questions and provided a handy guide of the area's many restaurants and activities. A fun day trip to a nearby mountain town (nestled in the crater of an inactive volcano) offered a market, a rain forest hike, animal attractions, and restaurants. A trip into Panama City to tour the canal was also really fun and convenient.
We look forward to going back and staying again. Highly recommend.
My wife and I can actually say that the pictures on the website are for the most part pretty accurate. The outside of this home is beautiful, they have a great looking swimming pool, two great looking patios upstairs and downstairs, where you can watch the day go by. Near the pool, you have covered beach chairs, you can also barbecue inside the Bohio that can accommodate your entire family. The views from the pool and from the house are really nice. That was the best that the house has to offer. Hector seems like a nice person, but he tends to disappear for long periods of time, leaving you to you to fend for yourself. In all fairness to him, he took me to the fish market, showed me around town and to a great restaurant that we enjoyed during our stay. On the negative, the inside of the house was filthy. We discovered stains on the sheets that smelled like urine or something that you wouldn’t want to sleep on, there was dust everywhere and bugs of every type all over the house. The worst of it is that the owner has not invested in mosquito screens for the windows and doors, which forces the guest to close the doors at all times, thus loosing the use of the tropical breezes during the days and evenings.
The kitchen was falling apart. All of the amenities were dirty and the stove was not efficient. This house just needs some TLC and it would be a jewel in San Carlos. It appears that whomever is in charge of cleaning inside the house before the guests arrive does not think this is important. The light fixtures around the property are cracked and falling apart, the barbecue pit was dirty and it took a few hours to clean it, the filtered water in the kitchen was suspect, the ceiling fan on the first floor is noisy and kept us up all night and the shower needs a good scrubbing and sanitizing. By the way, the CD music player did not work and the cell phone that was promised for the guests was missing in action.
Overall, the San Carlos house has potential but lacks the attention to detail.. I am sure I am like most vacationers that do not mind paying the advertized prize if they are getting the basics right. My recommendation to you is do not stay here until you can get a commitment from the owner that he will ensure that all of the above things are taken care of off before you arrive.

Owner's Response: I regret that this renter was not satisfied. Fact Check: There are screens on all of the windows (but not the sliding doors), the cell phone is there and functions perfectly, and the radio/ipod dock works fine. Here is how we addressed the other issues. We visited the property the week after this renter left and had to replace our caretaker and house keeper. We replaced all of the bedding, towels, and many items in the kitchen. There is a new stove and washer & dryer. The house has been cleaned from top to bottom. Please look at the reviews over the past 5 years and the reviews after this renter. We have put a lot of time and effort into making this a place that people will really enjoy and I feel confident that these issues have been thoroughly resolved. The place looks great!!
The property is located approximately 100km from Panama City in the town of San Carlos which is nicely positioned between the resort areas of Coronado and Farallon allowing visitors to conveniently take advantage of all the area has to offer. The road to El Valle is just 2km from the house. Many of the areas best restaurants are close to the property and the beach is just a 5 minute walk from the house. Much time was spent researching the area to be sure the property was in the perfect location to enjoy all of the attractions on the pacific beaches of Panama.
