Playa Coronado cottage description

Costa Grande is located in the Coronado/Gorgona beach area. We sit just off the beach (good for quieter nights and no beach insects), about a four minute walk down a potholed road. The Coronado and Gorgona beaches are next to each other. Our Gorgona beach has the local fish cooperative, where you can buy great, fresh fish for $.75 to $2 per pound, take a swim and fix the fish in our large kitchen and BBQ. We have both an adult and child's swimming pool.

We can provide or arrange for transportation from the airport.

The owners and visitors are from all over the world, with several local Panamanian families, much like the colorful town of Gorgona where it is located. This is not a tourist only community!

Our Casita has some wonderful local art, including a full wall mural featuring water and colorful birds. We have two units from which you can choose. One sleeps 6 and the other has an ocean view and sleeps 2.

Our downstairs unit has a larger living room, kitchen and terrazzo than the other available rentals in the complex. You will love cooking the fish you buy at the local fish co-op on the gas Bar-B-Que on the terrazzo.

We have taken great care to create adequate storage spaces in the furniture. We live in this unit 6 months each year, so it is equipped with everything one would need.

Each room has both a split A/C unit and a ceiling fan for complete comfort.

                      The Gorgona beach is a four minute walk. the fish co-op is a short walk to the right of where you enter the beach. They have fresh, cheap fish almost every day, except Holidays.

                      Our beach is great for fishing, boogie boarding and swimming. For more challenging surfing walk or drive up the beach about one mile to Malibu. We are a 10 minute walk to a good restaurant. We are a 10 minute drive to a major shopping area in Coronado, with many more good restaurants.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About: We are a young retired couple (68), who have live in Seattle during the sunny months so that we can see our 5 grandchildren. We love to travel. We recently travelled to Norway, Sweden and France. Last year we did exchanges in Australia. John swims a mile or so each day in the Ocean, when in Panama, and loves to play water polo. Jayne loves to walk on the beach.

                      Why Playa Coronado:
                      Panama has perfect weather and choices of climates, friendly people, good economics, an interesting culture, including an interesting international city, and is reasonably close to the US for family and friends to visit. We can offer either a two bedroom + terrazzo unit that sleeps up to 6 or a one bedroom unit with a terrific ocean view that sleeps 2 in a King bed, which can convert to two twin beds.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      With this much sun one cannot have a depressed thought. Living outdoors will cause you to become more fit: tan and thinnner! Panama has many expat residents and visitors. You will meet many people with adventures similar to yours. There is a great social life here. We are fully furnished, including boogie boards!
