This house is a truly unique experience as it is open to the environment, creatures sounds and all! We had a great time here experiencing and it is perfect for those that love nature. From the moment we arrived in the pouring rain we saw an agouti and as the sun came out so did all the birds! Chimene, who owns the property was very helpful from the off. She put us in touch with a private guide who took us on a boat onto Lake Gutan where we experienced close up the ships going up and down the canal, the local wildlife and local Indians.
We stayed out of season, but even in season there is little in the way of restaurants, so you must bring food with you or eat in the local hotel up the road. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need to cook though, it really is home from home. Don't stay here is you don't like bugs or the odd bat flitting about, this house is about as close to nature you can get but still be inside!!
I stayed here with a few of my friends for a short getaway in February. This place is great! The condo is exactly like the pictures. Molly is sweet and helpful! Everything we needed was there, including pots and pans, cell phone, even computer and wifi. I have rented a lot of vacation condos over the years and this was one of my favorite experiences. We had the pool mostly to ourselves (you can see the pool from the living room windows) the whole time.
Note: it can be slightly difficult to get a taxi on Avenida Balboa on weekend nights. Just be patient and one will eventually come. Who needs to rush when you are in Panama??? Also, we almost locked ourselves out of the place one night. Read Molly's instructions on this point carefully! Everything else was a piece of cake.
You can walk to Calle Uruguay from here easy. Not too far from Casco Viejo and El Cangrejo, either. No cab ride in the city was over a few dollars.
