About Ricardo Zubieta Arias / Maria Victoria Zubieta

My sister and I both live in Panama City and inherited this piece of land from our mother. Her dream was to have a small but comfortable place near the city, where she could scape on weekends. We decided to build the house on 2011 and finished it in 2012, hoping you can all enjoy it, the same way she would have!

Ricardo Zubieta Arias / Maria Victoria Zubieta purchased this house in 2012

What makes this house unique

Just in front of the house you can walk the reef (please use reef shoes) and you will find naturally formed pools, inside the reef itself.

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

The house is exactly what you see. We didn’t need anything else. Is very near to everything you need, beach, groceries, and some local restaurants. We took a trip to a nearby island to a sandy beach and had dinner at Isla Grande. Great time!

For the money - Find another place to stay

  • 1 of 5

We spent three nights at this home (husband, daughter, and myself).

The good - fantastic location. The home sits right on the beach. If the weather is nice, it is lovely to sit on the porches, relax in the hammock, wade in the ocean.

The bad:

1) HARD to find. Our directions were not specific. We drove around for about 45 minutes in the dark looking for the house. We were delayed at the airport so we were not able to arrive until after dark. The house keeper was not waiting for us. We had to go pick her up in a town about five minutes away, get her to show us our home, and then bring her back to her village. This was not fun for us after an entire day of traveling. The home owners were available to us via phone, but if we had not added an international plan to our cell phone we would have been in a very dire situation. We were scared to be lost in the dark in an unknown place.

2) For the price, the house is not that clean. The home is clean enough, but there was lots of midlew, dirty corners, dishes that did not appear to be fully washed, etc.

3) On our last night the water stopped working. It was fixed the next morning, but we had to go an entire night without running water. Ants are already a problem in the tropics. Imagine the number of ants if you can't wash your dishes. Imagine having to tell your two year old that she can't shower after playing in the mud all day. We were told that someone was coming to fix the water. It did not get fixed til the next morning. No apologizes for the inconvenience was offered.

4) Distant owners. No one was there to great us. No one told us what to do when we left. A bit more explanation would have been nice.

Overall, this place did not contribute positively to our experience in Panama. I think a better vacation rental could be found.

Great Place to stay

  • 4 of 5

I spend a weekend with my family and really enjoy it. My daughters love the beach and want to be there all day. It is a good place to snorkeling; there is a lot of colorful fish near to the reef. The house have everything you need, especially on the kitchen, you only have to bring your food.

The housekeeper Reina is very nice and helps us to have everything in place. The view of the sea and the island is very relaxing.

Definitely recommended.

DESCUIDARON EL TESORO QUE TIENEN

  • 2 of 5

Aunque es un gran lugar con una muy buena vista y ubicación, no cumplió con las expectativas dadas. El descuido, la falta de aseo en baños y cocina desdice mucho del lugar. Deberian aspirar a cumplir de mejor manera, al menos con las necesidades básicas de sus huéspedes (ducha con agua caliente, fumigación de insectos, proveer de una TV que funcione, y una housekeeper que reciba con agrado y que cumpla con las funciones que se le han asignado... que en nuestro caso no pudimos contar con su servicio) ...El costo de nuestra estadía fue demasiado alto para lo que recibimos. :(

Owner's Response: Estimada Mari, Lamentamos de sobremanera no haya disfrutado su estadía. Como le comunicamos en su momento, desafortunadamente la persona que limpia y cuida de la propiedad y nuestra visitas tuvo una pérdida familiar que le impidió cumplir a cabalidad con sus obligaciones para con nosotros y nuestros visitantes, justo durante su estadía. En cuanto al agua caliente y TV, ninguna de las 2 cosas nosotros ofrecemos tenerla, por las siguientes razones: El agua es agua fresca de río, por lo que nunca está fría y, por otro lado, no hay servicio de cable TV confiable en el área y por esa razón no ofrecemos el servicio. Estamos siempre pendiente de las necesidades de nuestros visitantes y estamos haciendo lo posible por subsanar esos problemas, por lo que agradecemos sus comentarios. Muchas gracias y saludos,

Beautiful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend here with our whole family, including my infant daughter. The property is very clean and well kept. The view is amazing!!! We had tons of fun walking on the reef (Plenty of water shoes and beach towels are provided!) The owners are very accomodating and easy to contact. We've been to this area many times before and were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem. We are all looking forward to staying here again soon!
