Contadora villa description

Perched overlooking Playa Galeon (Isla Contadora's best beach), is a group of 27 villas, which include all the comforts and conveniences of 21st-century living.

The Villas at Contadora are located on the north side of the island, within easy walking distance from the airport, hotels, restaurants, grocery stores, etc.

This villa is a delightful 2 bedroom style condo within the complex, and is situated right next to the pool. This unit sleeps up to 7 (up to 4 adults and 3 children).

This unit comes with its own private 1050 gallon water system, which ensures you will not run out of water during your stay (Contadora has a very unreliable island water supply, that is often down.)
Villa 24 has a safe on the premises that allows for peace of mind when spending many hours at the beach each day, as it is comforting to know that your passports and valuables are secure. The Villa also has direct high speed Internet that provides both a strong wireless signal as well as a direct ethernet connection.


Unique Benefits: The island is small enough that everything is within walking distance, although the most common mode of transport is a golf cart. Everybody seems to know everybody that's regular, but only a few tourists seem to come here. A great place to come and escape. The Shah of Iran came here after the revolution.

Having a place on Contadora Island has provided me the perfect place to spend quality time with my 3 young children in an ultra safe environment. Contadora is a Pacific hideaway of Panama's wealthy. The peace and tranquility of the island allows me to relax and unwind. The beautiful white sand beaches and crystal clear water amount to a tropical paradise.

                              About the owner: Having a place on Contadora Island has provided me the perfect place to spend quality time with my 3 young children in an ultra safe environment.

The beautiful white sand beaches and crystal clear water amount to a tropical paradise.

                              Why the Owner Chose Contadora:
                              Only 15 minutes by air from Panama City and into a world of it's own. Villa 24 is 100 yards from the airport.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Villa 24 has a safe on the premises that allows for peace of mind when spending many hours at the beach each day, as it is comforting to know that your passports and valuables are secure. The Villa also has direct high speed Internet that provides both a strong wireless signal as well as a direct ethernet connection.
