Beautiful home with gorgeous views!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful, spacious and modern.  The location was very convenient between Colon and Portobelo also Panama City was only an hour and a half away. Be warned there are very few road signs in Panama so be prepared to get lost.

We all loved the breezes coming through the house even at night after we closed up. Listening to the waves and feeling the breezes was wonderful. We loved having breakfast on the patio watching the pelicans diving for their breakfast..

There was no private beach the entire time we were there. We assumed it was because of the big storm raging out at sea.. Hopefully that issue has resolved itself.

Alex recommended some restaurants in the area. We had a great time at Captain Jack's and El Castillo. The food was delicious at all the restaurants we encountered. Captain Jack's is the only restaurant that is always open. Make sure you have cash most places do not take credit cards in this area.

Don't miss the SAFARICK'S ZOOLOGICO in Maria Chiquita it's a local zoo/rescue. I was a little disappointed that there were no sloths, it was explained to us that they recently did have two injured sloths but they had recovered and were released back into the jungle the week before. Can't get any better than that!! Well worth the time to visit and the owners are wonderful people. They do accept credit cards..

We were warned ahead of our arrival by Alex not to drink the water. We purchased bottle water from the local grocery store - we recommend the Super 99 Grocery Store which is about ¼ mile past the El Rey in Sabanitas. It's a big modern grocery store and it takes credit cards!!

The property managers Cindy and Jim are very friendly and helpful.

We had a great time in Panama and were very comfortable at Alex's beautiful home.

Owner's Response: Thank you JoAnn, Steve, Nana and Rob for being wonderful guests. I love to hear that you enjoyed the breezes, waves and magical surroundings during your stay. The stunning landscape, beaches, mountains and amazing wildlife -- I've been told by many that it is like being in Jurassic park with modern trimmings (minus dinosaurs...). I know that during most of your stay you got to experience one of the Caribbean's biggest storms in the last 5 years. It looks like you had your very own front row seats to nature's big performance and.... really loved the show! Thank you again and I hope to host you in the future.

Everything we hoped for +

  • 5 of 5

The house is a small villa..(interior like a loft...simple and more than adequate)....which sits right on a beautiful bay with the most exquisite view

and sounds of the sea, Alex was welcoming and provided us with a detailed list of places to eat/visit and nearby things to do.

A car is necessary, as beaches and shopping are from a couple of minutes away to a half-hour..The beaches are beautiful and the fruit and

fish available in markets and from street-vendors is "just off the tree" or "just fished that morning."

We used the kitchen a lot, and ate, bug-less, out on our veranda facing the sea. Sublime. And there's all the towels and chairs we needed and a hammock.

The place is kept spotless by Mariella, the sympathetic house-keeper.

We're so glad that we discovered #32. See you next year, Alex.

Clean home with gorgeous location

  • 5 of 5

This was a good choice for our group. The house is spacious with a lovely view. It was just as described. The view of the water is refreshing. We sat out on the veranda every day - even during the rain. November is their rainy season. Alex, the owner was very informative about the area - places to see and restaurants. I have never encountered someone so helpful. He also gave us the name of a local couple that we could contact if necessary. They were always responsive. I would highly suggest this beautiful home.

The house is between Sabanitas and Porobelo. We went to Portobelo several times. One of the local restaurants we enjoyed in Portobelo was Captain Jack's. The food was delicious and the owner and employees are very friendly.

This was our first time to Panama. I would suggest knowing some Spanish. Also nowhere in Panama are establishments in a hurry. Expect to relax and enjoy.
