Interaction with Guests
I like to adapt, if guests want to feel quiet and private I give them space, I also love talking with all the guests and sharing life experiences and maybe grabbing a couple of beers together!
The neighborhood is my favorite in Panama. It is the newest and there are a lot of really cool trendy places, such as bars and restaurants opening close by.
Bus stop around 50 meters from the building and taxis are really easy to get 2 blocks away from the building. I suggest using UBER or EASY TAXI Apps for getting taxis

We always hope that our guests have the most wonderful time.
The apartment was a little hard for the cabbies to find but if you just tell them Costa del Este by the Westin they'll know what you're talking about. That's the only tip really. Grace was always such a help and gave good suggestions for going out on a night in the town. I always felt like I was welcomed! Loved it here!
I wish this that had developed the way I had envisioned. Melody and I arrived late at night, not early afternoon as planned, due to flight delays and equipment problems. Having kept our host informed, David met us at the door, gave us needed instructions, and let us go immediately to sleep.
Unfortunately we needed to leave very early the next day. David and Grace exchanged brief introductions in the morning, then offered to drive us to our destination. The ride provided additional time to realize the quality couple we were meeting only briefly. Hopefully, our paths cross again in July.
In regards to the accommodations, they appeared as advertized, although given the darkness and lateness of our arrival, we weren't able to see or use some of the listed amenities. Next time I will allot more time to avoid a similar occurrence.
We had a fantastic 4 night stay at David and Grace's place. The accommodation is of 4 star hotel standard, with excellent private bedroom/bathroom and the living area, balcony and rooftop pool have amazing views of the city. There is also the added bonus of a great kitchen with all mod cons. We didn't see that much of David and Grace as they were at work during the day and we were mostly in the city in the evenings, but when we did catch up with them they were very friendly and helpful. The only downside we found was that taxis in and out of the centre were expensive, $10-16 depending on where we were going and time of day. We did suss out cheaper ways of doing the journey towards the end of our stay, combining short taxi rides with public transport or even better getting a lift with David. Overall a definite thumbs up.
We spent only 2 days with David, but was really great! The location is very quiet and safe. Very friendly people! Highly recommend
David and Grace were wonderful hosts and their place was amazing! By far, the best Airbnb experience I've had this far. I really enjoyed relaxing by the pool and working out at the gym, both of which were conveniently located one floor up from the apartment. The room was comfortable and there's air conditioning, which is a must because it's hot in Panama. The view of downtown Panama from their balcony was awesome with amazing sunsets. The location in Costa del Este was perfect and just a short Uber ride from the city ($7 to $8) though cabs were easy to hail too. I personal liked being away from the chaos of downtown. It's in the business district so There are plenty of places to eat within walking distance and a great coffee shop that serves lunch as well called Athanasiou and the smoke shack serves the best ribs. At night it's quiet and peaceful. I'm definitely staying here the next time I come to Panama.
