Coronado condo description

This 3 bedroom 2 bath condo located on beautiful Playa Serena Beach is part of Playa Serena Resort gated beachfront community. Our beachfront connects directly to Coronado Beach. This beautiful condo isn't a short drive to the beach or a short walk to the beach, this luxurious, fully equipped condo is ON the beach. You have several miles of beachfront in each directon; great for walking/running/sunning..... just enjoying. From the balcony of this 19th floor you have a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean and a spectacular mountain view as well. The condo is new with all the comforts you could possibly need; Totally stocked and equipped kitchen with all appliances, Split A/C units in the living room and each bedroom, flat screen TVs in the living room and each bedroom, WiFi throughout condo, pool, equipped exercise room. With the wonderful ocean breezes, we seldom use the A/C units.

The kitchen is also fully equipped with any appliance you migh need: Coffee maker (and coffee grinder), microwave, blender, juicer, and all of the glassware, dishes, bowls, pots & pans, silver and cutlery you could possibly need. There is also a laundry area with high quality, front loading washer/dryer. This secure home will comfortably accommodate 2 to 6 people.

Coronado is less than a 5 minute walk down the beach or a 5 minute drive. In Coronado you'll find a 24/7 walk-in medical centre, 4 large 24-hour grocery stores w/ pharmacies, Catholic Church, Synagogue, Banks and restaurants. Nearby you can travel to El Valle mountain village with: Thermal Springs, Treetop aerial ride, peaceful mountain forest trails and Handicrafts and Farmers markets. You can drive or take tours of the Panama Canal, or visit nearby towns and enjoy natural tropical settings, a Rainforest and more in the way of Ecotourism.

You can see and hear the surf hitting the beach from the patio of the condo. Since you can hear the surf from all 3 bedrooms the sounds of the surf will lull you to sleep each night.

All bedding, towels, wash cloths and kitchen towels and beach towels are provided. The condo is fully equipped with all kitchen appliances, dishes, silverware and knives, table-wear, comfortable furniture, beds and patio table and chairs. We have a porta-crib for people who have a baby.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and an ensuite bath and beautiful ocean/bay views. The 2nd bedroom has a full size bed and gorgeous mountain/valley views. The 3rd bedroom has a queen size bed with a double bed mounted on top for more sleeping options when couples or 2 children are involved. The windows here also have beautiful mountain and valley views. All 3 bedrooms receive great cross ventilation when you leave the windows open.

We have stayed at some rentals that just were not what they advertised. You will have my email address (and there is very good high speed internet at the condo) and my cell phone number in the US. You can contact the manager and/or email or call me if you have any problems. There is a phone in the living room and an extension in the master bedroom where you can make and receive calls from the U.S. and Canada and they're FREE!!!

There are no 'hidden' costs in the rental amount we give you, i.e., taxes, linen service, government fees,etc. All costs are seen by you up-front before you put a deposit on the condo.

Recently we talked to a Panamanian on the beach who had just bought at Playa Serena and he said, 'this is the first 'beautiful' beach you come to from Panama City.

We really love it in Panama and we really love Playa Serena and the beach and surrounding area and we're sure that you will love it also.

If you're interested in getting a rate for a stay, it is a good idea to contact us after you get a rate from HomeAway or VRBO. Sometimes the rates they give you are not completely accurate (the software is figuring your dates and costs) and we also can often show you payments methods that will save you money.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Tom and Karen Szewczyk live and work in Syracuse, New York. Tom was a portrait photographer for 35 years and a real estate investor. Karen is a Neo-Natal Nurse Practitioner and also is a real estate investor.

              Why the Owner Chose Coronado:
              We spent a lot of time looking for an oceanfront home in the Caribbean and in Central America. We visited a LOT of places and looked at a LOT of property. When we found this development and did some research on the developers and the project in general, we were very comfortable with the purchase. Now that some time has gone by we're more comfortable than ever that we bought just what we were looking for and we love this area, the people and this comfortable, homy resort. We're far enough out to have all the privacy and slower pace we enjoy and yet close enough to everything we might need. Just 1 hour from Panama City, 4 Km from 4 different (large) grocery stores, 1 hour from the Panama Canal, 35 minutes from el Valle and about 60 seconds away from one of the most beautiful beaches in Panama, just outside our front gate.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              FREE phone calls. There is a phone in the living room with an extention in the master bedroom. You can make and receive phone calls FREE from the USA and Canada. You will also have the use of a Panama cell phone for local calls. The resort of Playa Serena is a very friendly place to spend your days and evenings. We just love the views from the patio from early morning to late evening. The weather in this location is just so nice that we seldom close the patio doors and always eat outside and enjoy the mountain and ocean views from the 19th floor patio. If you're interested in getting a rate for a stay, it is a good idea to contact us after you get a rate from HomeAway or VRBO. Sometimes the rates they give you are not completely accurate (the software is figuring your dates and costs) and we also can often show you payments methods that will save you money.
