Panama City condo description

This is a very unique loft style property featuring 15 foot high ceilings, skylights, a large mezzanine bedroom with beautiful wooden floors & oversize custom made wardrobe with its bright en-suite bathroom, the bedroom overlooks the living-room.

The nice modern American kitchen offers a breakfast bar and opens onto the living/dining room that leads to a lovely balcony with views to a wide quiet street with colorful 'bougainvillea'.

It is a gorgeous apartment which benefits from all the colonial charm: iron work & Calicanto walls (original stone wall from the 17th Century) all around the condo with a great homey feeling.

The condo is fitted with high end amenities, a phone with free local calls and also the use of a cell phone during your stay.

LOCATION:

It is next to the famous “La Merced” Church which façade was transported stone by stone after the 1st city (Panama La Vieja) was destroyed…the building was actually the living quarters of the monks;-)

The condo is steps away from restaurants, bars & cafés, the famous Plaza Cathedral with the Museum of the canal & the up-coming Plaza Herrera which will soon host 2 boutique Hotels.

NEIGHBORHOOD:

Casco Viejo (also known as Casco Antiguo) is an effervescent neighborhood with its beautiful restored colonial buildings, home to the President Palace, the French Embassy & a gorgeous promenade with awesome views to the city's skyline & the Amador Causeway (entrance of the Panama Canal).

It also offers fine dining & entertainment with the National Theatre, great outdoor cafés for a nice drink on one of the charming plazas...an enjoyment by itself!

Its perfect location between down-town & Amador, a 5 to 10 Min’s taxi ride, makes it a conveniently central “pied-a-terre”!

*************************************

For your convenience we also offer airport transfers & tours and can welcome you in 5 languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian and German.

Come and enjoy Panama by staying in this little gem:-)

Please note that it is not recommended for people with knee injuries as there is no elevator.

Looking forward welcoming you, Patty & Rudy

P.S. we also have a studio in the same building & a 1 bedroom condo in Amador by the Causeway (entrance of the Panama Canal).

P.S.2 Pictures were taken by Rudy...no staging...and he is no professional photographer so this is what you get...no tricks!!!

                  Why the Owner Chose Panama City:
                  We bought this property for us however since we have so much successs renting our studio located in the same building we decided to purspone until retirement time and in the mean time welcome guests to enjoy it;-) We love the colonial neighborhood of Casco Viejo (UNESCO World Heritage) – it’s vibrant and has some of the best restaurants in town...not to mention that it is fascinating to wonder about in its little colonial streets admiring the buildings amazing architectures. It’s the up-coming neighborhood of the city, it is centrally located between the banking district (2 min’s drive) and the Amador Causeway (5 min’s drive) and now is also walking distance to the new coastal belt where you can jog or just take a walk. Lots of entertainments like the national Theatre and all the different venues: the Jazz and Music festival. You’ll find a variety of little shops with beautiful Panamanian handcrafts and every Sunday the flea market. Casco Viejo is a great walking neighborhood home to the Presidential Palace, the Mayor’s Office (in our street) and the French Embassy. It’s a perfect Holiday spot…and we have taken great care of making the loft as cozy as possible with high end amenities.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  Great balcony with a view (not onto the neighboors!) and the very high ceilings with the original 'calicanto' walls!
