Panama City apartment description

Exclusive property for vacation rentals in a safe residential gated community. Ideally located whether you are on business or vacation. Stay in Panama's natural beauty only 10 minutes from the banking district, but worlds away in the serenity of our exclusive neighborhood, designated Cerro Ancon National Park by Panama in 1997. Sightseeing and hiking right from the front door up to the top of Ancon Hill. Close to shopping, the Canal, waterfront restaurants, and much more. No better location to enjoy your special vacation in Panama. Why stay in the 'concrete jungle' of downtown Panama City with all the chaos and noise from lots of smokey diesel trucks & buses? You can see that in any downtown city!

We offer 8 units, four large 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath apartments and three studio apartments, and one regular hotel style room with a bath. All fully furnished and custom decorated in tropical theme. Totally renovated not long ago. Each 4 bedroom apartment (sleeps up to 10) has 14 large windows with beautiful tropical views out of every one. The kitchen is fully stocked and equipped with fridge/freezer, ice maker, gas stove with full size oven, microwave, toaster/oven, coffee-maker, spice-rack and everything you need to prepare you own fresh meal (Panama has the best and freshest seafood, vegetables, fruits and meats in the world). Or, hire a maid/cook to prepare your meal and clean up for you...all for @$25+ a day!

The four studio apartments sleep 4 guests easily in this 650 sq. ft. ground floor unit with kitchenette, fridge/freezer, 2 burner cook-top, toaster oven, coffee maker, apartment phone plus a cell phone for your use in Panama, and more. Studio has 2 large windows with same beautiful views.

Take a nap in one of the hammocks in the gazebo out back, grill some fresh seafood or steak fillet (tenderloin) on the large stainless steel barbeque grill, and take a swim in our custom private pool with waterfall/fountain.

We can get you discounts on Panama tours, fishing and at some of the best restaurants in Panama.

Reservation Policy:
To reserve a particular week for your trip, we require a payment of 50% of the rental amount be paid. The remaining 50% is due no later than 60 days before your trip. We do not guarantee an apartment until a payment is made. All payments are non-refundable, except as described below. Check in time is 4:30 pm and check out time is 10:30 am.

A Visa or MasterCard credit card is required upon check-in to cover incidentals, lost or damaged items found upon your departure. We do not run a charge on your card without trying to contact you via email or telephone first. The apartments and contents, as well as all other PVQ and owner’s property are for your enjoyment, but are your responsibility during the rental period. PVQ also reserves the right to charge incidentals, tours, and other services or damages you are responsible for, but do not pay. Cleaning is usually covered by the rental rate (unless stipulated otherwise), unless the unit is very dirty or the booking is for less than 7 days, then a cleaning fee will apply. Per recent Panama law, we require the names of all guests staying in the unit, as well as a proper ID of the group or family representative.

Our cancellation Policy is like that of many other residential vacation facilities with special features to be sure you will be able to take your vacation, even if having to reschedule.

Otherwise, no refund will be due. This policy applies regardless of payment method, be it; cash, check, PayPal, wire transfer, credit card, or bank transfer, Etc.

              Because we are located within a national park INSIDE Panama City, it's like having a house in Central Park in New York! We are inside a park with it's natural beauty, but inside a metropolitan city with all it has to offer, very close by!

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              Why the Owner Chose Panama City:
              We bought this property primarily because of it's very special location, in a gated small exclusive neighborhood with 24 hr security at the front gate. Another special feature is the ability to accommodate large groups by having eight apartments i the building.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              My wife and 2 kids LOVE spending at least a month in Panama each summer. They would rather live there than where we live, but work and school will not allow it right now. Everyday spent at PVQ is really special, and it is by far the best property and location to stay while visiting Panama.
