Hasta Pronto!!! Your hosts: Patty & Rudy
Patty purchased this condo in 2006
We chose to purchase this property due to its great location and amazing views. Another reason is that Rudy used to come here as a child when it used to be part of the Canal zone in the days when the Americans were operating the Canal. This particular area was where American generals once inhabited their majestic homes…some have been renovated & some were replaced with low rise condominiums – no more than 7 floors…making this area very exclusive with only a handful of them.
The views, the lush surroundings & riding the bicycles on the Causeway that are provided with the rental!
My husband and I spent a whole month in the condo on Amador and could not be more pleased. Rudy and Patty are wonderful, always available and responsive. A very good location if you like walking or running, which we do. Watching the ships going through the Canal from the roof top balcony was a never ending entertainment. Would definitely go back there. Easy and cheap cabs and Uber to town if you are looking for shopping. The only small drawback is having to take a cab to the grocery store.
My wife and I were down in Panama recently and came across Patty's Casitas and Rudy's tours and we are so glad we did!!! We couldn't decide whether to stay in Casco Viejo and reacquaint ourselves with the Old City or stay along the Amador and enjoy the ships entering and exiting the Panama Canal. So Patty allowed us to do both and what a great experience it was! Walking through the City Antigua or riding the available bicycles along the Causeway and with totally different restaurants and shops at both made us feel like it was two vacations in one! And Rudy's tours opened our eyes to so many things we would have missed. They became fast friends of ours and are welcome at our Casita in Washington State anytime!!! Thanks again my friends!!
My wife and I really enjoyed our stay in Patty and Rudy's condo. The unit is very homey and well outfitted; the building has a great rooftop deck, work-out room, and garage; and the location on the west end of Panama City was ideal. We rode the provided bikes all over the area, out the Causeway and then along the waterfront into the city to Casco Viejo and downtown. Patty and Rudy were excellent hosts and very accommodating, Rudy proved to be a great tour guide, very knowledgeable on the area. One note, as shown on the map the condo is on the Amador Causeway which can get busy, so there is some road noise but nothing horrible. We'd definitely recommend this place and would stay here again on a return visit.
My wife and I were looking for a nice place to stay for our first trip to Panama. I wondered about all the 5 star reviews. I thought it looked too good to be true. However- from the time we were warmly greeted by Patty and Rudy at the front gate of this beautiful condo building, we quickly realized that there is a reason why people give it 5 stars. Believe all the reviews! We felt like we were already friends with Patty and Rudy that first day.
At the last minute our son became available to join us. It was his birthday. An email to Patty and presto! Another bed in the living room. Perfect!
The first couple of days we walked around Amador, out the causeway, visiting the Biomuseum designed by fellow Canuck Frank Gehry. It is beautiful and interesting. There is a great Italian restaurant, Al Dente, right beside it, with an upper patio overlooking the causeway, with a magnificent view of the City across the water. We walked to the last of the 3 islands where we found another gem, Buccaneros. On the way there is a third great restaurant called Mi Ranchito which we also ate at during our week long stay. If you're not up to long walks, there are the Yacht club and TGI Fridays only a block away!
We were wondering why we heard so many horns honking at us as we walked. These were taxis inquiring whether we wanted a ride. They are everywhere! We used them often. Just ask " how much?" We were surprised at how inexpensive they are. To the end of the causeway, which is about an hour's walk, taxi fare was $3.50! Not many of the drivers spoke more than a few words of English but we only spoke a few words of Spanish so we just said "puquito ", (which I don't think is even a word), and we would all have a great laugh and figure out where we were going. It was fun. All the drivers we met tried hard to understand us and were very accommodating. One thing is true though, we were down by the hotel where Friday's is and the taxis there wanted $10 for the trip the ones on the road in front of the condo wanted $3.50 for!
Later in the week we went on 2 tours with Rudy. He is a real pro. He know almost everything about the area and on one trip he took us up a jungle river to meet and eat with an ancient native tribe of Embera. It was amazing! And in case you're wondering, we saw NO mosquitos, even in the jungle.
I could write a book but I'm running out of characters. I strongly recommend Patty and Rudy for your trip to Panama. They'll make it special!
After over a week on a sailboat, we checked into the Amador Causeway apartment - immediate feeling of being pampered. Beautifully decorated and a gorgeous city view, we felt spoiled. We rode bikes, provided by Patty, down the causeway. We went to the Museum, within walking distance. We were so tired we picked up food at TGIF and ate in the apartment. We happened to be there over New Years and got to watch some of the spectacular fireworks out our windows. Patty was so flexible with our time at the apartment, she had another couple that had to cancel and worked with us and our time schedule. She works hard to make your stay perfect. We also spent a day with her husband Rudy, on one of his tours and explored a native village. We walked with the medicine man, ate the most delicious fresh fish and watched the natives dance - so delightful!
Although this vacation was not our first outside the USA, it was our first time in Panama and our first time using VRBO. Many thanks must go to my wife for finding Patty's Casitas among the hundreds of choices that a vacationer can discover on-line. I am usually not ( ok never) the vacation planner for our trips which I guess is why I am writing this review. I have read a few of the reviews on here and wholeheartedly agree that Patty's Condo property was one of the nicest places we have ever stayed. While there is great appeal for staying in the ritzy hotels for the glamorous nightlife, the Condo was a breath of fresh air far enough away from the "maddening" crowd, but a short taxi ride from anywhere you wanted to go. As mentioned in other reviews our condo was equipped with everything a person needed for a most pleasant stay. House rules are posted so there are no misunderstandings and a binder with answers for almost all your questions that you may have during your stay. Our trip to Panama got off to a rough start by being 8 hours late due to airline so instead of arriving in midafternoon, we arrived after 10 p.m. and closer to 11:30 p.m. before arriving at the condo. Even though the hour was late Patty's Husband, Rudy, was there at the condo waiting to check us in and make us feel right at home. He thoroughly showed us the condo and how to operate the AC, and TVs and kitchen appliances. Both Patty and Rudy were always available via phone if we needed information about shopping or dining or touring as Rudy is also a licensed Tour Guide and as far as my wife and I are concerned, the best tour guide we have ever encountered anywhere. Both TGI Fridays and the Balboa Yacht Club were within walking distance from the condo and the food was great. Although we generally like to go to different places each year, we have already decided that we are going back to Panama and when we do our first stop will be with Patty and Rudy.
Visit the aquarium of the Smithsonian Institute, the Musuem of Biodiversity from world famous Architect Frank Gehry and the Taboga Island or Contadora Island which is 15 - 50 minutes boat trip.
