Eric, is was wonderful to host you and your family in our house. It's great when a group of people enjoy the concept of a truly "open" house design. Have a wonderful New Year and we look forward to you and your family returning to Panama in the future. Best, Chimene
I stayed here for 2 weeks with my boyfriend and it was wonderful: a very quiet place situated in a residence on the beach and with swimming pool and very nice and clean garden.
The apt was clean and… More

"Caution, this rental is not as represented"
We booked and paid for this property for two weeks. There was no one at the gate to meet us. We asked some workers outside the gate if they knew how to get in. after awhile one of them opened the ga… More
The McCall's had a back-up reservation at a nearby Punta Chame resort here in Panama. Had they given advance notice as requiered, i could have easily rented my beach apt to others and asked Flip Key to refund thier $. Since thier main complaint is that the apt was not clean, it was not fair to show up early (and left after only 3 min there) and saw my apt while the maid was there still cleaning it from the previous client that was there for a month with kids.
I had intended to refund half thier deposit until i read thier malicious review.
For example; they claim that the fotos are not the same as on my site, but thats not true. Every foto interior foto is exactly the same as before and now. Every exterior foto is the same as it is now. Nothing was misrepresented. Everything i said and presented is true.
The maid explained that she was still cleaning my apt and that is why she
was not in her house at her house at the front gate entrance.
I have never mis-represented anything to the McCall's.
On the contrary, i have been very upfront and honest with them as i am with all the clients. As my webpage says and as i wrote to the McCall's and to every client before accepting thier reservation; " Thanks for your interest in my Punta Chame beach apt. At this moment it is still available for your stay. My apt has futon, fold-down sleeper sofas and big window A/C. It is not a 5 star resort, but its a great value for a beach resort. If you are very particular and fussy, then its not a good match for you or me, OK? If you reserve i can then send you my site URL with more info/fotos."
Thank you and Best Wishes, Jerald
PS- As for the landscaping it is lush and tropical and some of the other 50 owners do have pets. There are simple rules that owners must walk thier pets on a leash. Pets are not permitted to run loose.
PSS- Most people realize that a beach apt for $35/day is a great deal and do not expect a 5 stat resort.Thank you. Jerald
