Sarah's casitas are the best rentals in the Coronado Playa area!! The casitas are comfortable, well-maintained, charmingly decorated with everything you would need for an awesome stay. The grounds are beautiful - so many gorgeous flowers and it feels like a tropical oasis. The pool and bohio are perfect for relaxing. The hosts - Sarah and Scott are so friendly, very knowledgeable about the area and super fun to hang out with. They can help with whatever you want to do, even if it is just hang out and do nothing. The casitas are also just a short walk from the beach and just a few minutes (by car) from restaurants, grocery stores and shopping.
I highly recommend staying here, we will definitely be back. Thanks for the fantastic stay Sarah and Scott!
I travel twice a year and this is the first place, i can call home. These people bend backward for you. Movie night, at the pool. Pizza night. Beautiful Casita, sleep well. Morning arrives, everyone pops out in pj's with a cup of coffee and have all there spots to be relax and wake up. No need to run for chairs. Plenty for all. Pool accessories, floating chairs, tubes, umbrellas. Beautiful pool, with a water rock fall, the noise of the water is so smoothing to your ears. So many different palm trees and flowers of all colors. What a variety of trees. U never imagine a mango tree being over 50 feet tall. You can see mango as high as 30 feet up there. We go in back of our Casita and get fresh mangos for the day. Restaurant, the prices are so great. And the food is great. They have a bbq, so, you like staying in, you can cook yourself a nice steak. And in the kitchen, you have all the accessories needed.
Arrived at midnight. Was greeted by Sarah's boyfriend who took the time to show us to our room and give us a brief introduction/orientation. The rest of the stay equally perfect. Sarah and Scotty are the absolute most accommodating people ever. They are wonderful, fun, friendly. It's almost like a family feel. And they treat you as such. And an additional bonus, they are both so knowledgeable about everything Panama (and so many other things). And they are more than willing to answer all your questions. The casita was clean and just perfect for our needs. The pool and surrounding landscaping is stunning. We enjoyed this vacation so much, and a lot was due to the accommodations and Sarah and Scotty and their outstanding hospitality.
In short: it was extremely difficult to leave…..! We had such a tiny window of opportunity in our very compacted and busy lives to capture the magic of Panama and meet some of its most special locals – Sarah, for one, of course, being one of those very special people.
We were made to feel completely welcome. It was a shame we did not have more time, to get to know you and take advantage of your stunning hospitality. You were so concerned we were happy and content, checking in on us like you did, just warmed our hearts and made the whole thing just that extra special. Thank you… we are so grateful. Please don’t think of us being distant and rude, especially as we dashed off so early due to our next deadline. People: especially lovely, welcoming, fun, caring people like you, are a big priority for us in life and it felt difficult to have to dash away like we did. We do hope to return again soon and spend more time. It was an absolute pleasure meeting you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Absolutely loved our stay at Sarah's Cassitas. Sarah was there to meet us when we arrived and even invited us to view the sunset from a condo building not far away which was stunning! She happily answered all my questions (were plentiful) and provided us with a well stocked cassita. There were tons of things to do there and the pool was divine! She's only a few blocks from the ocean/beach and many restaurants. Met other guests and even made one American an honorary Canadian and taught him to say "sorry" and "eh" like a good Canadian! After having traveled through Panama, Sarah's cassitas was a breath of fresh air and made me a believer in Panama.
Panama Sarah runs a wonderful guest village, with classically Panamanian casitas, beautiful grounds, friendly people and a deep knowledge of the country and community. If you're wanting to get out of the hustle of the hotels and have an intimate experience in one of the most beautiful of beach communities in Panama then you're in the right place!
My husband and I stayed at Panama Sarah's Casitas for 5 nights in Feb 2018 and it was so nice and relaxing. The backyard yard has a pool, hammocks, ping pong table, lounge chairs, and a BBQ grill for use. There are also many little seating areas scattered about the premises in case you want to read a book or just take a little siesta.
The beach is an 8-10 minute walk from the Casitas. You are also a 10-12 minute walk from Picasso Bar & Restaurant, a pizza restaurant, and little mini mart too.
The Casita we stayed in was Casita Gaviota. It was cozy, comfortable and very clean. Perfect size for a couple. Loved the art work and decor!
The kitchenette has a full size fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, blender, dishes/utensils, and sufficient pots and pans for most meals. There is A/C, flat screen tv, and reliable Wi-Fi. The water pressure in the shower is very good too.
We also liked that our front porch had a couple of adirondeck rocking chairs and table that was perfect for morning coffee and relaxing in the evening with cocktails.
Do get a rental car though in order to explore other nearby sites within the Coronado area.
Sarah can help with rental cars and also a great wealth of information regarding which sites to see or visit. Sarah and Scotty are great hosts. They are nice, located onsite, and provide great customer service! On their recommendation we did a few day trips which was great (El Valle and Playa Santa Clara).
What was also fun is that Sarah and Scotty sometimes organize movie nights outside around the pool for guests. Very fun and a nice way to meet some of the other guests too.
Fully recommend Sarah's Casitas!!
