My husband and I had stayed at a nearby Casita last year that was unavailable this year and Sarah's was recommended by that owner. I contacted Sarah way back in November and booked for 6 nights. We planned on travelling for a week beforehand and ending our stay here at Sarah's. A few weeks before our trip one of the places we had booked for a night emailed us cancelling our reservation due to overbooking, we were alarmed since it was during Carnaval, concerned we would have difficulty booking elsewhere. I emailed Sarah on the off chance that our Casita may be available one day early and she was most accommodating.
When we arrived at the Casita's we were very road weary and ready to relax. Although Sarah and Scott were themselves travelling they made sure there were other guests there to greet us and show us around the grounds. As soon as we opened the door to Toucan I could have cried! It had everything you could possibly need, it is spacious and clean, AC works great, hot water works great (and if you have travelled to Panama you know how important this is). Huge comfy king size bed, well appointed kitchenette and ample storage for clothes.
We met the other guests and in no time felt right at home. When Sarah and Scott returned it was great to meet them and easy to see why she is so well established, she knows her stuff and has the perfect personality for hospitality. The grounds are breathtaking with tons of room and ample shaded areas and the pool is perfect. I can not think of one single negative thing about this property or our stay there! Thanks Sarah and Scott we loved our time there!!! Oh btw, we used Petro for our trip back to the airport and he is one of a kind, great guy who knows his way around the city and will do everything he can for you.
Sarah and Scotty are the best. We truly enjoyed our stay. They made us feel right at home and are planning a trip back very soon. They are the bet hosts and have a wealth of information on the area.This was our first experience not staying at a chain hotel, and boy did we enjoy it.
Easy public (bus) access to El Valle, which we visited twice. Sarah and Scott were fantastic hosts. They go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable!
Staying at Sarah's Casitas had all the comforts of home, except we had a lovely refreshing pool to swim in and a beautiful garden to sit in. Our casita had everything we needed. We got to know Sarah & Scotty and by the time we left they felt like family. They were so welcoming and friendly but most importantly, they were fun. We got to know other guests and made friends. We enjoyed going to the local bar/restaurant & meeting others there. Getting to the store or into Panama was easy by bus. It was also nice to walk along the beach at low tide. We'd definitely go back again when in Panama.
Sarah and Scotty have a great place. Their casita was my favorite place to stay in my tour of Panama. Close to the beach and restaurant and shopping venues, as well as the Panam Highway in Coronado with really great, knowledgable hosts, it would make a great base of operations for anyone wanting to explore Central America or Northern South America. Their yard/pool area is beautiful. The casita had a North American standards bathroom and kitchen and a very comfortable bedroom.Close to the beach, close to the City with very Gracious hosts I absolutely would recommend this as a place to stay for anyone lucky enough to be in this vicinity
