About Christine

My husband and I have lived in Pedasi for 6 years. We came and never left! We bought our land after being here about 5 months. We started off slowing by building our storage shed and from there our house.

We love to fish and we've got our own panga which we can't wait to get back in the water now that our house is finished.

Our family also includes Fischer, Melvin and Maso, our 3 dogs. Fischer came with us from the states and Melvin and Maso were born here in Panama. They welcome you to bring along dogs too to enjoy the large, secured fenced in yard with them.

Christine purchased this house in 2012

Why Christine chose Pedasí

We love the people here in Pedasi. The locals are so friendly and always willing to give you a hand. If they can't do something, they know someone who can.

We bought our property from a local family and loved it's locaton. We can walk to anything that we need and during some of the larger events like Carnivale, which is held in the park, we can return to our peaceful setting after a day of music, parades and parties.

What makes this house unique

We've tried to think of everything when we built this house. We've capture great views and breezes from all the windows. Everything is of the highest quality. After months of painstaking preparation we now have gorgeous wood ceilings and clay tile roofing. The home is so well insulated that we rarely use the air conditioning.

The patios were positioned for privacy while still capturing nice views.

We have the perfect location within just a couple minutes walk into Central Pedasi where you will find several restuarants, mini markets, a larger super market, local watering holes, banks, clinic, pharmacy, spa, language school, gift shops and more. Yet we are off the beaten path just enough so that your stay will be peaceful and quiet except for the occasional cow moo-ing or a flock of parrots flying by.

One of our favorite beaches is Playa Arenal where you can catch a boat to bring you to Isla Iguana or hire a captain for a day of fishing. There are 2 restaurants there where you can enjoy a cold beverage and watch the fishermen bring in their daily catch.

Two other favorite beaches within a 20 minute bike ride are Playa el Toro and Playa la Garita. Great for boogie boarding. There is a bar/restaurant at Playa el Toro that looks out onto the ocean and has a pool that you can use for a small fee.

The roads to these beaches are popular with people out for a walk, run or bike ride.

If you have a car, you'll be able to explore many areas along the coast. One very popular beach is Playa Venao where several World Surfing Championships have been held. A couple of great restaurants and bars are also located here as well as a shop that rents all the equipment you need for a day at the beach.

Certainly fishing is one of the most popular things to do here and we'll be happy to help you arrange a day out on the water with one of several great captains.

Outside of town by about a 1/2 hour car ride is Las Tablas where you will find more shopping. Further, about an hour from Pedasi is Chitre. Chitre has a mall, several supermarkets and plenty of other shopping. But we find we can pretty find what we need here in Pedasi!

We hebben genoten van ons verblijf!Absoluut zeer goed ontvangen door Kristine en haar man. Insider tips qua resto's en activiteiten. Je kan ook zelf koken. De keuken is zeer goed uitgerust en bbq op je privé terras is aanwezig. De casita is gelegen op wandelafstand van Pedasi dorp.De honden zijn heel lief en geen probleem. Wij komen graag terug! En niet twijfelen 😏

Thanks Wayne and Christine, we had a heavenly week in Pedasi. Your home reminds us of 1960s Jamaica with the beautiful flora, fauna and night sounds, but yet we had all the modern amenities for a beautiful stay. Proximity to town and beaches is great. Your friendly animals contribute so much to making it feel like home, we enjoyed their affection and entertainment. We would love to stay here again when we return to Pedasi.

Way more than I expected and everything I could have wanted.

  • 5 of 5

If you are heading to Pedasi and plan to stay for a week or more, this is the ideal place to set up camp. The Owners, Christine and Wayne, live on site and are lovely people who are a great resource to familiarize a visitor with all things Pedasi. Wayne built the house and the quality of construction is impressive. His thoughtful design took into account that he was building in a warm, tropical climate. I was very comfortable without ever using the A/C, but then I like it warm with a fresh tropical breeze wafting through the windows. There is A/C for those that prefer it. The accommodation itself consists of 4 surprisingly spacious rooms (Kitchen, Living Room, Bedroom & Bathroom) along with a private outdoor patio. I've lived in apartments that were much smaller. From the website photos I really didn't realize how much space I was going to be getting, but it sure was nice to spread out and settle in for the week. I was extremely comfortable. You are provided with your own washing machine which is a great feature after you have visited the beach. I did not rent a car. Walking to the center of town is an easy 15 minute walk. A local ended up loaning me a bike and I pedaled all over Pedasi and down to the beaches. It was brilliant! Christine operates a pet "hotel" (dogs & cats) on the property. Many locals drop their dogs for the day or longer when they need to travel out of town. The design of the facility was impressive and it was immaculately clean. The walls featured pet themed artwork painted by Christine. She clearly loves animals. She and her husband share the property with their own dogs and cats who were universally friendly and well behaved. They added a special something extra for a visiting animal lover like myself. Wayne and Christine graciously provided me with help and information as I needed it. Christine even picked me up at the Pedasi airport! But they were always cognizant to respect my privacy. Pedasi is a wonderful place and Wayne and Christine are accommodating and friendly ambassadors who will leave you considering a return - perhaps on a permanent basis.

The home is spacious, very clean and well equipped and our hosts could not have been more helpful. Wayne and Christine were genuine and warm and went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay to the fullest. We highly recommend this place as a comfortable and affordable base for anyone who wishes to experience this charming fishing village and its breathtaking countryside!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Christine and Wayne's .....very peaceful place close to town and beaches. They were so helpful and we found lots of fun activities to explore. The little house itself is so comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. ... but then if you don't feel like cooking there are amazing restaurants so close by. Guaranteed you will enjoy this paradise!

Awesome accommodations and hosts in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 1 week and it was awesome. Very spacious and clean accommodations with private patio overlooking large landscaped yard. Close to town but you feel like you're in the country with the sound of cows, roosters and dogs. Full sized kitchen allowed us to make breakfast daily and keep our beverages cold! Christine and Wayne are very welcoming hosts and I would recommend this place in a heartbeat!
