Amazing, Fun, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Just got home from a 9 night stay in this great house! Jim the owner couldn't have helped us or offered to help us more than he did. Left a local phone for us to use. Carlos the caretaker came by almost everyday to clean the pool, yard and check to see if we needed anything. Carlos would arrange for fresh fish, lobster or shrimp to be delivered right to the house. Plenty of toys to play with. Multiple surf boards, 2 kayaks, 4 hammocks, plenty of chairs and a very safe neighborhood. Each room was clean and has it's own air conditioner. Plenty of beach and bath towels. 2 refrigerators, plenty of bottled water and very few bugs! Within a 15 minute drive you had 2 well appointed grocery stores, gas stations, banks with ATM's, high-end wine store and a hardware store. 2 surf schools a block away. I can't wait to go back and stay here again!!

The best!!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, right on the beach. Excellent waves for surfing and playing. The house is extremely well equipped with kitchen gadgets, indoor and outdoor games. Jim is an absolute beauty. He is available for anything you need and so helpful. We would all recommend this house rental to anyone.

Amazing location for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are just finishing up our stay at Jim's house in El Palmar. It has been a week filled with fun and adventurous activities for our kids of all ages.

The house is directly on the beach - step down the ladder and you're hunting for seashells and relaxing in shallow ponds at low tide. Walk 100 yards down the beach and you can boogie board, body surf or take surf lessons. This is perfect destination for people who want to play in the water as it's right outside your door and there are more toys than anyone would ever need available for you to use.

Jim has been the perfect host, answering any questions we had and even setting up outings for us and having fishermen deliver their fresh catch to the house for us. He has thought of everything to make our stay easy - he leaves local cell phones on the counter when guests arrive for their use during their stay and he is always a phone call away if you need him.

We will definitely be back to spend more time at El Palmar. Thank you Jim for creating the perfect family vacation for us!

The Reviews Say It All -- Excellent Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We were a family group of 7 adults and finding this VRBO jewel helped make our Panama visit exceptional. As a VRBO property owner, I thought I knew how to make people feel welcome, but owner, Jim goes above and beyond, making you feel more like a special guest than a renter. El Palmar is a reasonable distance from Panama City, allowing for city sights, as well as exploring in and around the Central Panama areas. The house is spacious with a big, open floor plan that completely opens to the outdoors facing the beautiful Pacific. We're fussy about cooking and the kitchen comes well appointed, plus big dining tables for family meals. The first floor living area was so large that we set up the owners ping pong table in the center room for the entire week. The bedrooms(3) all had multiple beds and baths and the master bedroom was spacious with an incredible balcony for gazing or lazing. They provide an abundance of towels and linens, local cell phones, plus outdoor equipment - surf boards, boogie boards, kayaks....but there's more -- friendly groundskeeper, Carlos even delivered fresh fish and shrimp to the house. We had a happy, relaxing visit to Playa El Palmar, and owe it to the owner, Jim for his amazing 'concierge' service, willingness to share his vacation home and extensive knowledge of Panama. Thanks for the memories!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here with 12 people and had a great time. The house was plenty big with lots of bed options and was fully stocked with towels, linens and whatever was needed. It was perfect having a kitchen and we cooked most of our meals there. All of the kids had a blast with the boogie boards and surf boards that were there also for us to use.

Jim was a great help in helping us with whatever we needed.
