Our family has traveled all over the world (50+ countries), and we've never stayed in a house quite like this one. We really wanted to get out of Panama City and be closer to the jungle, canal, etc. The home provided a perfect base for 5 nights of our trip in Panama. The architecture and design is very unique, the location is in a nice part of the quiet town of Gamboa, and the Gamboa Rainforest Resort is only a 10-15 minute walk away. We did a sunset boat cruise, the aerial tram tour, the ecological exhibits (butterfly garden, orchid center, and frog house), and the new wildlife rescue center on property. All were pretty good. We cooked most of our meals ourselves in the fantastic kitchen, but we did have a couple meals at the Resort which were actually pretty good. For a family of 6 (2 parents, 2 grandparents, and 2 young children), the house was perfect. The open air design made us feel like part of the jungle, and we enjoyed hearing and seeing birds from the house and decks. Even when it was hot outside, the house always felt very comfortable with all the air flow (and the basement level is air conditioned). The toys, board games, and books were a great hit with our kids, and there were many interesting books upstairs for the adults. We used the swimming pool daily, and we even played a little on the pool table and ping pong table. Chimene, the owner, was delightful to work with and was available before, during, and after our stay to make sure everything went smoothly. I also walked to an ATM and a little convenience store in town and had no issues finding anything. We've been raving about this place to friends and family since we returned, and I expect we will tell anyone visiting Panama it is a "must do" part of their trip. I've rated other vacation houses that were perfectly nice 5 stars....this truly perfect house deserves more like 7 stars.
