Patty's Casco Viejo loft was a fantastic spot for our 4 person family for 4 nights. The location is super central in Casco Viejo. And the loft is gorgeous and very well equipped--kitchen, bathroom, bedding, wifi/TV, A/C. This was a perfect place for us to stay.

We spent three nights at Patty and Rudy (her guide husband)’s condo property in Amador by the waterway. The condo is gorgeous, two bedrooms, 2,5 beds, full comfort, any amenity you can think of, luxury bedding, towels and top notch kitchen appliances and utensils. These two lovely people did pre-arrival shopping for our breakfast items and took us back and forth for a Covid test our Government requested last minute, at no extra cost. Friends of ours stayed at another of their properties, this one in the Old Town and were enchanted as well. We toured with Rudy, saw the Panama Canal and did a Jungle Boat Tour; both were amazing, so interesting and fun and nice to spend the day in such pleasant company. On the way back from one tour Rudy had no problem stopping at a store for us to pick up some groceries. It’s the little details that make a tourist feel comfortable. We recommend both Patty and Rudy for their knowledge as guides, their taste in lodgings and the friendliness that obviously comes from the heart.

Patty has the jewel of Casco Viejo in this fabulous loft. We stayed June 15 - 16, 2021 here and it was just fantastic. The loft is decorated so classy, it has all the ameneties one would need for a stay. The location is perfectly located steps away from the Inglesia de la Merced where the bell continues to chime after 340 years! Patty is such a lovely person she makes you feel so welcome into her loft and leaves extra amenities that you only find in 5 star luxury hotels. This truly is a special place in the heart of a special city with so much to do and see and all within walking distance from Patty's loft. The original 340 year old wall in the loft is something to take in, boy if walls could talk what would it say, and Patty's excellent design talent has accented it perfectly. And while you stay here don't forget to take a tour with her husband Rudy he is very knowlegable and it is like taking a walk, ride, etc, with a friend! (enjoypanama@rudystours.com). I highly recommend staying at Patty's!

We stayed in Patty's casitas for two nights in January. Her two bedroom apartment in Casco Viejo was very charming. It was in a perfect location for wandering around the old colonial city, with restaurants, sightseeing, bars, a grocery store, and coffee shop just steps away. Patty also arranged for her husband, Rudy, to pick us up at the airport, and give us an excellent all day tour of the area the next day. These tours can be customized to what you want to see. This is a much better place to stay than in the high rise, modern area of Panama City. Patty makes it very convenient and easy to communicate with her and was able to answer all my questions about the area.

We stayed at Patty's 2 bedroom loft in Casco Viejo for 9 nights April 2019 and loved it. The place was charming, cozy, very clean and very convenient. Patty and Rudy ensured we had everything we needed and gave us great customer service. Highly recommended when staying in Panama City!

We had the pleasure of staying at patty’s casitas for 9 days. Patty has several different options and locations to stay in Panama City . We stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment in Casco Viejo , the location was superb for walking to all the restaurants and for sight seeing . Everything was clean and we felt very safe . We also enjoyed several tours with Rudy’s tours , Rudy is very knowledgeable , prompt and on time and is a wealth of information and a pleasure to be around. Transportation was clean and reliable. The walking tour around around Casco Viejo was a good way to start our trip . You will not be disappointed if you stay and book with patty’s Casitas.

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment in Casco Viejo. It is PERFECT in every way! Every amenity you need to enjoy a stay. We were here for a week and loved every minute. Location is great accommodation and amenities wonderful! BUT the best part is Patty & Rudy. We planned our trip from Canada and I cannot say enough great things about Patty so prompt and so helpful. They truly want to make your Panama experience outstanding. Rudy toured us on 4 days and arranged our partial transit. It was great. One day another couple joined us otherwise it was just our group of four. Rudy is extremely knowledgeable and loves Panama. You will not be disappointed staying with Patty’s Casitas or using Rudy’s Tours. They are now our friends and we hope they will visit us in Canada. We will definitely stay here on our next visit to Panama

Patty’s Casitas, once again, proved to be our home away from home for a two week stay in Panama this year. We were picked up by a driver arranged by Patty at the airport and delivered to our condo where we were met by our hosts. This was our fourth visit to Panama, and we stayed, once again, in their Amador Condo. This Condo is on a middle upper floor of a seven story building, located in one of the most sought after areas of Panama. The condo is a spacious 1-bedroom with a nice double sink bathroom, with large shower and great views to the Panama City bay with Casco Viejo & Down-town as a background and lots of nice vegetation surrounds the condominium. There are bicycles available to ride on the Amador Causeway. It also has a common rooftop terrace where you can enjoy the views of the Ocean and see the ships go towards the Panama Canal while you enjoy a glass of vino. For restaurants, shopping, or sight seeing, there is easy access to the Amador causeway, the Miraflores Locks of the Panama Canal, Casco Viejo, downtown Panama City by Taxicab or Uber. The ferries to the Pearl Islands in the Pacific are also located near-by. This allows the vacationer to take the choice that best fits their needs and wants. But, we returned again this year to see the New, Bigger, Wider Agua Clara Locks of the Panama Canal. The husband and wife team of Patty’s Casitas and Rudy’s tours positioned us perfectly for a grand view of this “Man Made Wonder.” Rudy, who is a licensed tour guide (and with whom we have taken many tours over the years...also to be found in TripAdvisor under "Rudy's Tours") picked us up at the Amador Condo and took us to the Panama Canal Railway for the 50 mile trip across the Isthmus to Colon. Then, He met us there, to take us over to view the New Wider Locks on the Atlantic side of the Canal. Once we had seen these, and understood the way they functioned, Rudy returned us to our condo. We have stayed in all their properties and any would be a great pick . . . clean, comfortable and in top-notch locations and very safe. Attention to detail is what makes their properties stand out and the fact that they are always available for any requests one may have. After all this time, and our many visits over the years, we have come to think of our hosts as dear Panamanian Friends. Jack Y.

I spent hours trying to decide where to stay in Casco, even after someone else raved about this condo. I should not have looked anywhere else. We stayed in the two bedroom loft which was huge, spotless and well-appointed.There is a small balcony with table and chairs. It's a block or two from everything but very quiet. Patty and Rudy were terrific and met us upon arrival even though it was quite late. There was coffee, milk and juice (and rum) already there. Unless you want to be up late partying, I would stay here.

We are very flattered that after a wide search you chose us Deeanne! It was lovely chatting with you and we are so very pleased you have enjoyed this wonderful condo that is the Loft...it's location is the best as Casco Viejo can be quiet noisy in the evenings since it is the "in" neighborhood of the city with its countless restaurants, cafés & bars! Not to mention around the corner from this neighborhood's only supermarket...and the best coffee shop down the street! Gracias for taking the time in writing up your comment...so much appreciated...until next time! Patty & Rudy

If there were a 10-star rating, Patty’s Casitas and Rudy’s Tours are deserving of it. We stayed in two of Patty’s Casitas – Amador and Casco Viejo (studio). Both were exceptionally clean and supplied with absolutely everything that an international traveler needs - down to the finest detail of Panamanian coffee, and a pen and paper for notes! Patty has excellent taste in decorating – the décor and furniture are beautiful and welcoming. Linens, dishes, flatware, cookware, etc. are of high quality. In Amador, we enjoyed watching the ships. . . . And the sunset views over the Bridge of America were outstanding. The Casco Viejo studio is located in the best location in Casco Viejo – near many restaurants and right around the corner from an upscale grocery mart. We also enjoyed touring with Rudy – he speaks excellent English, and is prompt, reliable and knowledgeable. . . .We always felt safe with him! Most importantly, Rudy and Patty are very kind, honest, conscientious and caring hosts which made us feel safe and secure as international travelers – they were just an email (or phone call) away. We stayed in two other rentals in Panama during our 2-month visit to Panama and neither the rentals nor hosts were anywhere near as nice as Patty’s Casitas (although the other rentals were also rated as 5-star). This is a full-time commitment (not just a job) for Rudy and Patty with a goal for their guests to feel happy and at home during their stay. We most definitely recommend staying in Patty’s Casitas and taking Rudy's Tours!
