About Molly

Alberto and Molly Sasso, are the owners of this property. Alberto was born in Panama. Molly was born in the United States. We met at the University of Maryland. As fate would have it, we moved to Panama and lived in Panama for several years together. We got married in Panama City but, eventually we found ourselves back in Maryland. We now have 2 children, they are 7 and 10. We love Panama! The warm climate, the beaches, the fresh tropical fruits, the fresh seafood, the beautiful flora. Panama is a wonderful place. The picture was taken on a boat in the Panama Canal during a transit cruise.

Molly purchased this condo in 2008

Why Molly chose Panama City

The majority of Alberto's family lives in Panama, so we visit often. We wanted a place where our family of 4 could stay for several weeks at a time and be comfortable and relaxed. We wanted to be in the heart of the city close to the entertainment and nightlife, but in a well secure location. We also wanted something we could actually live comfortably in if we decide to relocate back to Panama in the future, either as a family or as a retired couple. Welcome to our home away from home in Panama City, Panama.

What makes this condo unique

We are 2 blocks from the NEW METRO SUBWAY STATION, Santo Tomas which opened April 5,2014. We are centrally located with easy access to both the North and South Corridors. So when visiting family who don't live in the heart of the city, we can get there and back quickly. Being in the heart of the city, means a short, cheap, taxi ride to the activities we enjoy. We do live in the United States and we know the standards that most people enjoy. So we took the time and expense to provide those extras that you may not find at other rentals, like Egyptian Cotton Sheets and Towels, Stainless Steel Cookware, Refrigerator with Filter Water and Ice Maker, Coffee Maker with a grinder, a Scale to Weigh your Luggage. Our administrators are actually Alberto's family members. So if you have an issue it's addressed immediately. They take pride in meeting the standards of our renters. For an additional fee they will provide taxi service to and from the airport in their SUV. The maid has been working for the family for many years and is excellent and well trusted. So if you are staying more than 7 days, her once a week service is included. For an additional fee she can come twice a week. Our 24 hour security guards. They don't work directly for us, but they have truly been a great gift. I get many compliments about them and how helpful they are with taxis and general information. I have a personal Google Map of Panama. Including restaurants, shops, tourist interests, beaches, bookstores, casinos and if you ask about a location and it's not on the map, I will do my best find it and add it on the map. Hence my map continues to grow.

Had a FANTASTIC time

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a few of my friends for a short getaway in February. This place is great! The condo is exactly like the pictures. Molly is sweet and helpful! Everything we needed was there, including pots and pans, cell phone, even computer and wifi. I have rented a lot of vacation condos over the years and this was one of my favorite experiences. We had the pool mostly to ourselves (you can see the pool from the living room windows) the whole time.

Note: it can be slightly difficult to get a taxi on Avenida Balboa on weekend nights. Just be patient and one will eventually come. Who needs to rush when you are in Panama??? Also, we almost locked ourselves out of the place one night. Read Molly's instructions on this point carefully! Everything else was a piece of cake.

You can walk to Calle Uruguay from here easy. Not too far from Casco Viejo and El Cangrejo, either. No cab ride in the city was over a few dollars.

Owner's Response: We make every effort to provide you with information about Panama and our location so you can make the most of your stay in Panama. We are happy to hear that are efforts are appreciated. There are Radio Taxis available in Panama if you don't want to hail one. You can wait in the condo or in the comfortable lobby. Once the taxi arrives the Security Guard will ring you at the condo. It's "not" possible to lock yourself out of the condo, but it is possible for someone who is inside the condo to lock the rest of the party out. How? We have a deadbolt lock on the door on the inside that is not accessible via key from the outside. So if a member of your party stays back at the condo, they should not lock the one particular deadbolt that is not accessible via key. Otherwise if the member of the party staying back falls asleep and can't hear the doorbell you will be locked out of the unit they unlock the deadbolt from the inside.

Highly Recommended

We enjoyed our one week vacation in Panama and were very pleased with the apartment. It is nicely decorated, spacious, and equipped with everything we needed. I previously considered booking an apartment in the Casco Viejo (old town) area, however I am glad we decided to book this apartment which is larger, has a better view, and is more conveniently located. We walked every evening along the waterfront path (Cinta Costera). We loved the shaved-ice "snow cones" from the vendors. We also walked to nearby Bella Vista restaurants. Taxis were easy to get on Balboa Avenue. We walked to the large Riba Smith grocery store to stock up on groceries, however we took a taxi back to the apartment due to 6 bags of groceries. We were very imressed with the new subway which we took twice. We discovered a nearby coffee shop (Bocatto Cafe) for our morning cappuccino. There is a mini-supermarket on the ground floor of the apartment building that appears to be new. Our favorite restaurant (we went twice) was Adagio and is 2 blocks from the apartment. It serves excellent Italian dishes. We enjoyed using the pool several times.

Excellent property in Panama City

  • 5 of 5

We booked this great apartment again for four weeks in January/February following a 'last minute' one week stay in February 2014. The apartment is comfortable, well equipped, well located and was spotless on our arrival. The building's common areas are excellent. We particularly liked the social area where we had evening cocktails (in plastic glasses!) on many occasions, since the apartment itself does not have a balcony. Very helpful security staff. Excellent supermarket about a 10-minute walk away. Booking was easy, and Molly is a very considerate owner. We were unable to access a secure wi-fi connection on our arrival, and the owners very quickly provided us with a cable hook-up - problem solved! Very highly recommended.

Great location in Panama City

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for 5 days and had a great time. The location to restaurants and down town was excellent. Travel by taxi was reasonable to go sight seeing.

Molly was great to work with, having George meet us at the airport. We will return and to this condo again.

This was the beginning of our adventure in Panama for family of 5!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stop for one month after arriving in Panama City. We have a total of 5 in our family, 2 teens and 1 child.

The Condo:

Our 2 girls shared a room and our son slept on the futon in the maids quarters. He didn't mind this so much since they really were only in their rooms to sleep! There isn't a/c in that room, but there is a ceiling fan. And if his door was kept open, the a/c from the living room cooled his room. The split a/c units in the living room and the other 2 bedrooms worked really good. The condo was very comfortable and had pretty much everything we needed for the entire month. The furniture is of very good quality and the beds are so comfortable! The wifi was extremely dependable which was a must for us as we still work remotely. Our kids were able to begin their homeschooling program on the computer as well. Of course, it was hard to get any work or schooling done overlooking the pool which is directly below us! I could send the teens down to the pool with my 7 year old and look out the window to see what everyone was doing. There is also a small playground on that floor that was used quite a bit by my 7 year old! We also loved having the view of the cinta costera and all the activity that happens there. Because we were there for a month, we opted to use the maid, and Anayansi always did such a good job. It was so nice coming home to an immaculate condo once a week! The property manager, George, was extremely helpful. If we needed anything, I could call him, and he would take care of it. He also speaks English, which was nice since our Spanish is slow to start!! The security guard (doormen) were always friendly and smiling to us. We felt very safe and secure in our condo.

The area:

This condo is pretty much walking distance from everything. And we chose to walk alot for exercise! Plus, we liked looking at all the buildings around that area. If you need to take a taxi, you can get one on that street very easily. Or just walk one block up to the main street and hail a taxi. Most fares in the city are between $3-$5. We also used the subway alot, which is a 5 minute walk from condo. The cinta costera is just beautiful and there are playground galore, lots of places to workout, also lots of food vendors! My kids loved the sno cones, as well as the other treats you could get from the vendors.

All in all, we had a wonderful time in the city and highly recommend staying here at this condo!!
