Property description

Our home is a Quaint riverfront home with tennis court, centrally located between Colon and Panama City in Santa Rosa. Santa Rosa is a very small rurral community along the Chagres River.

Our home features 3 bedrooms for guests, one is located on the main floor just off the living area and the others are upstairs. The master bedroom balcony faces the river where you can enjoy the sunrises and river activities. Each floor has a shared bathroom.

The main floor has an entry/mud room, living room with television and DVD player, dining area, kitchen, bathroom, bedroom and sitting area that overlooks the river.

Our kitchen has a refrigerator/freezer, coffee maker, blender, mixer, microwave and 5 burner gas stove top, cookwear, utencils, plates, glasses, mugs and flatware are included.

Enjoy views of the river from one of the three patios (two accessed directly from the kitchen) or relax in the hammocks, while sipping a cocktail, in the patio adjacent to the sports court. You will thoroughly enjoy over 700 square feet of covered patio / balcony area!

Our property is fenced on 3 sides and has banana, mango, mamei, cashew, guava, coconut trees with fruit when in season.

Water is from the public system well that is community owned or the 500 gallon reserve tank, we own. Water is supplied to the house automatically from the tank if the public water system is off. The water is potable and safe.

The community park borders our property upriver and has a small kiosk store where you can buy essentials and refreshments. Our driveway passes between the park and the Catholic Church. About 50 feet from the church is the baseball park, and just up the hill from the ball park is the town bar which can be lively on Friday night through Sunday night.

One of our neighbors, Panta, sells fish, so get your order in the night before and hope for a good catch for dinner. Our favorite is peacock bass (sargento).

Several days a week, the bakery van (M,W,F, Great Cinamon rolls, etc), fruit / vegetable trucks and egg truck drive through town selling their wonderful fresh products. The pineapples usually are 3 for a dollar, and are grapefruit sized, juicy and sweet. We always have fresh coconuts on our trees. Pina Colada's made with fresh from the nut milk, these delicious pineapples and Carta Vieja Rum will spoil you!! Enjoy

The roads to the community are paved and in great condition.

We have enjoyed our visits to Panama as have our friends who have travelled with us.

We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do and that you have great adventures in Panama.

Santa Rosa Amenities: Santa Rosa is a very small community along the Chagres River. Our upriver property line borders the community park. The building in the park has a small mini-mart type store where you can buy essentials and refreshments. Our driveway passes between the park and the Catholic Church. About 50 feet from the church is the baseball park, and just up the hill from the ball park is one of the town bars.

One of our caretakers brothers, Panta, sells fish, so get your order in the night before and hope for a good catch for dinner. Our favorite is peacock bass (sargento).

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: We live and work in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, USA. One of us was born in Panama. After many visits to family in Panama, we decided to purchase this oasis by the Chagres River.

Why Santa Rosa:
We love the hurricane free tropical climate, relatively low cost of living, the US dollar based currency and easy access via the international airport. Panama uses 120 volt / 60 hz, same as a typical home in the USA. Driving is on the right side of the road, same as in the USA. Check out our fun facts page on our linked webpage!! We love taking our 13.5 foot, 2 person kayak out for excursions on the river.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Day trips, from this centrally located village, to the Caribbean, Pacific Ocean, Panama City, mountain areas, antiquities, shopping, indigenous villages etc. while enjoying a true rural panamanian lfestyle along a beautiful river. Check out or suggested daytrips page on our linked webpage!! Interested in a Chagres River / Canal boat ride from our home? Try out our 13.5 foot 2 person Kayak included in the rental. Our home is only 5 miles by boat from the Panama Canal. Another alternative is to ask our caretaker to arrange a trip through a local boat owner. Life preservers are provided. Remember your sun hat, sunscreen and beverages. Prices are negotiable depending on your desires. For a 4 hour excursion, we suggest $40.00 for the boat and operator, plus fuel costs.
