Talk:Pedasi

From Wikitravel
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello all. I am a current resident of Pedasi and would very much like to update the existing information on this page, especially since it is so limited and Pedasi has so many great things to offer.

As a new wikitravel editor, I tried to add an existing Sleep accommodation, www.azuerosvillarentals.com. Azueros is a very common and famous location for travelers in Pedasi to stay along the beach, in its beach villas and ocean lofts that can be rented daily. It it not a rental agency listing, rather than working with on-site property managers and providing hotel-like services in your own villa or loft for your weekend or week-long trip. I think this is a great find for travelers, and would appreciate input to making this listing viable, including catering the description to WikiTravel guidelines.

This is what I propose to post: Azueros Villa Rentals Playa Los Destiladeros (10 minutes from Pedasi's center, El Limon highway exit (855) 9 PANAMA / (507) 838 SURF [email protected] Azueros is a residential resort including beach villas and ocean lofts. Built to integrate in their tropical seaside landscape, all properties have ocean views and are a two-minute walk from Playa Los Destiladeros. Beach villas include a private swimming pool and ocean lofts have outdoor private balconies and a communal area. Properties include full bed accommodations for 4-5 people, fully equipped gourmet kitchens, A/C, wireless Internet, iPod dock, TV/DVD plater, washer/dryer, BBQ and daily maid service. Also includes concierge services for restaurants, guided trips and local community activities. $150 to $220 (varies by season)

Thank you,"KristenDunlap 17:36, 16 December 2011 (EST)"

I'm OK with this, except: (1) The rates have to be explained. Are those per day? Per week? (2) What is the street address of the office where keys can be obtained? It would also be helpful to use the format shown at Wikitravel:Accommodation listings. It looks like the listing needs a little more work, but I don't have a problem with the idea of listing the villa rentals. Let's wait for other people to express their opinions, though.

Thanks for your response and support Ikan. To respond to your questions: 1. Ocean Lofts run $150-$175, Beach Villas $195-$220, varies by season. 2. Keys are picked up in Azueros when you arrive at your ocean loft or beach villa (Address: Azueros, Playa Los Destiladeros, Pedasí, Los Santos, Panamá). It works the same way as the address that is provided for ¨Posada Los Destiladeros¨- the street doesn´t have a name, it is oriented by the beach and a sign is given for Panama Bambu and its´ Posada, just like Azueros. 3. Let me try and follow the Accommodations listing recommendations and provide this revision:

I think this is OK, though it's probably best to put this into the structure that you'll get when you click on "[add listing]" above the right-hand corner of the "Sleep" section. I will try to get response from some other people because I will be happier if there is at least one other person backing me up. I don't want to approve the listing and then see someone come later and delete it. Ikan Kekek 13:49, 17 December 2011 (EST)

Thanks, Felix. Only two people now have weighed in on this listing, but Kristen, I think if there are no further comments on this "Talk" page in the next 24 hours, we can call this a consensus, and I'll back you up if you post this listing as edited by Felix then. Ikan Kekek 16:37, 20 December 2011 (EST)
Glad we could work together on this. All that is left to change is the alphabetical order of the listings once that we see it has been communally accepted. KristenDunlap 10:03, 27 December 2011 (EST)

Help with Pedasi villa rental listing[edit]

Swept in from the pub.

Hi, everyone. There's been a discussion of a villa rental listing at Talk:Pedasi. I'm OK with the listing now, but I'd like for some other folks to weigh in, so that we can achieve a consensus and either have the listing go up and stay up or not. Thanks a lot, everyone! Ikan Kekek 13:52, 17 December 2011 (EST)

An awful lot of effort gone into explaining how to a single user how they should format a listing. Really hope they put the information to good use rather than just making their own listing and leaving. Personally, I'd have pointed them at dt and some stars. --Inas 22:41, 20 December 2011 (EST)
But rental listings have to be by consensus, so how do we get that the way you're describing, unless we change our policy on rental listings? Ikan Kekek 01:24, 21 December 2011 (EST)
Personally, I wouldn't be forming a consensus about listing rentals in a place if the person just has a vested interest in getting their single listing included in the guide. I don't think that is the sort of consensus we are looking for. If there is a someone with an interest in a destination, then that's different.
However, I have no problem with what you guys have done. It is all good, just pointing out that I wouldn't have gone to such effort in a situation where I believe the user in question is just interested in getting their listing in the guide. Hoping I'm wrong, though. --Inas 06:45, 21 December 2011 (EST)
