Wonderful hosts, fantastic accommodation, and a gorgeous beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Sarah's place in Coronado was fantastic. We very much enjoyed a welcoming barbecue in the backyard on the first day we arrived. Glenn helped Sarah's boyfriend Scotty with the barbecue and they became very good friends during our stay. Sarah had invited many expat friends to come over and we had a wonderful time getting to know them and hearing their personal stories of how they moved to Panama. Her backyard is very private and well landscaped around a beautiful pool which we enjoyed frequently. Sarah was very friendly and helpful in getting us settled in and oriented to all that the area has to offer. We had a very nicely decorated, quiet room with a kitchen and air conditioning. The room was of high finishing standards with a very comfortable queen sized bed. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking, which we took great advantage of. Her place is in a great location, very close to the beach!The beaches were quiet at Christmas season. In town you can find absolutely everything you need quickly and inexpensively. The chicken breast at Reys grocery was the best I have ever tasted! We felt very comfortable, relaxed and well taken care of the entire stay. Sarah is a very gracious host who truly wants you to have the best experience possible. She is well connected in the real estate market and the the area and showed us several places and referred us to a couple of top notch real estate agents.We will definitely be back!

An Oasis Retreat in Coronado

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Casa Gaviota Casita for 4 weeks. Sarah may have the nicest backyard in Panama! There is a beautiful pool with waterfall, an outdoor covered BBQ and dining area, Palm and Banana Trees, hammocks, and ample lounging area in the sun or in the shade. There is a concrete ping pong table that is fun to play. Lots of birds, flowers, and the occasional iguana to enjoy. You share these areas with other guests, folks come and go depending on their length of stay. The seemingly endless stunning black and yellow sand beach is an 8 minute walk away. The Coronado Golf Course is a 5 minute walk. We played 10 rounds on a very nice Tom Fazio layout, highly recommend. Thank you Sarah and Scotty for a fantastic visit!

A great experience !!!

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't have picked a better place to stay in the area !! Sarah and Scotty are super hosts that make you feel at home before you even arrive. They are always there to help you with any questions you may have about absolutely anything and are happy to let you know about any local events that may be going on !! A car does make things easier but the bus service is close and is very cheap and efficient ! The set up with Casita's is perfect for meeting new people, forging awesome new friendships, and having much fun and laughter! It feels like being home I was there for 6 weeks and can say it was truly a great experience at their properties. The casita's are clean and very comfortable plus have all you need ! Through her travels Sarah has picked up so many pieces of artwork that all adds to the decor throughout the property. Having the beautiful pool with waterfalls and floaties is perfect ! The BBQ area by the pool is a perfect spot to socialize and relax in the evenings with all the new friends you meet once there :) I would highly highly recommend staying here.

Thanks for everything Sarah and Scotty.....look forward to seeing you and all those I have met there this trip again soon ! Jan

"Talk about going above and beyond, panama Sarah walks the extra mile for her guests".

"Talk about going above and beyond, panama Sarah walks the extra mile for her guests".

Panama was a last minute trip for me and during high season this can mean disaster when looking for great accommodation that doesn't break the bank.

Sarah went above and beyond to help me and accommodate me even though she was stretched super thin and under huge pressure with a full house of guests and their needs.

Sarah's friendly and calm demeanour are a great asset to the tired and stressed travellers whom are sure to find their little piece of paradise when staying at one of Sarah's breathtaking accommodations.

I highly recommend anybody from any walk of life to utilize Sarah's expertise when travelling and staying in Panama.

I for one will definitely return.

A Magical Time!

  • 5 of 5

6 weeks of laughter, friendships, sightseeing, what more could you ask for at Panama Sarah's. Sarah and her boyfriend Scotty are exceptionally generous and accommodating people, as well as Vilma the maid and Jose the gardener. We couldn't have chosen a better place to stay while continuing our research into emigrating to Panama. A beautiful pool in a gorgeous garden with a waterfall and communal BBQ and a great casita with a full kitchen. We enjoyed the daily entertainment by the chachalacas and parakeets. Only a 10 minute walk to the beach where you can walk for a few miles and be entertained by the hundreds of pelicans. We do recommend having a car, but at the end of the road you can catch a local bus into the town of Coronado for 35 cents, where you can catch a bus to anywhere in Panama...a great system. It was a very sad day when Pedro, the driver Sarah recommends, came to pick us up to take us to Tocumen Airport in Panama City to fly home. We will definitely be back to visit our friends Sarah and Scotty...thank you so much.

Most Excellent!

  • 5 of 5

What a great time! Sarah arranged for a driver, Pedro, to pick us up at the airport and he was great at giving us a tour on the way to Coronado. Sarah arranged a car rental at the casita for us and provided excellent advice on must see spots! We did go fishing on a charter, thanks Sarah for the great tip! We especially enjoyed hanging around the pool and met some amazing people at happy hour! The Casita was clean, the bed was super comfy; we had everything we needed to prepare our own meals. The grocery store was close by and had some great deals on fruit and meat, ok and the beer was super cheap! I want to bring some more friends back to Coronado next year and I will definitely be booking with Sarah!
