"Coste Grande is a cozy villa, very well cared for having all the amenities you will need with a nice touch of decor. From the time of booking, Zhenia the owner provided many helpful tips and information including the name of a trusted transport company. Zhenia was truly a pleasure to deal with and ensured we had everything we needed. Having a keypad lock for this villa is a great feature with no keys to carry around. Though a vehicle is recommended we chose not to rent one and got along just fine. We love to walk so this villa was ideal for us. Bikes would have been a bonus but there are none around to rent. The beach is a two minute walk and there are 3 convenience stores for essentials also within walking distance. Coronado is a short bus ride or taxi ride with everything you need. The back garden/covered patio is a wonderful place to hang out. You will always have a place to go if you need some shade. The pictures and description on VRBO are represented exactly. Thank you for sharing your villa."

"My husband and I just spent two months at this rental. Booking the unit was easy and Amy was very responsive and easy to work with. She answered several questions before we booked. We had an amazing time at Playa Serena. The grounds and condo were meticulously kept and staff was very friendly. Hearing the waves right outside 24/7 was amazing and very relaxing and the view of the ocean from the balcony was breathtaking. We swam in the ocean or the pool or both almost every day. Some days the ocean was warmer than the pool. The photos accurately reflect the apartment and we had most everything we needed. There was good cookware for making our own meals and plenty of silverware and dishes. A few of the kitchen utensils are in need of replacement but we did fine preparing meals. The unit was very comfortable and neighbors in the building were friendly and helpful. We did not have a car but figured out the bus system fairly quickly and got around fine. The view out the balcony was surreal. Palm trees, ocean waves and the pool. What better way to relax. We loved having morning coffee or evening pineapple smoothies on the balcony. We made several trips (by bus) to the mercado and fish market in Rio Hato and had fresh fish frequently. Shopping in Coronado was easy by bus or a $5 taxi ride and the variety of stores had everything we needed. Gorgona is a small fishing village with an expat presence but the real expat population is in Coronado. We liked being close enough to get there yet far enough to be in a more quiet setting. We took the buses to Panama City a few times, to the MiraFlores locks (a must see), Albrook Mall, Multilevel Mall and even rode the subway which just started operating in June. We went whale watching, did trivia night at an expat hangout in Coronado and played giant Jenga at La Ruina which is one of the two restaurants within walking distance from the Playa Serena. We are already planning a return to Gorgona and would definitely stay at this unit again."

"My husband and I welcomed in 2015 on a sandy beach in Playa Serena, listening to the waves and watching the incredible fireworks under swaying palm trees. Yes, it was pretty much perfect! We rented Steve & Diane's condo for a month and thoroughly had a great time. All the amenities of home were provided, wi fi, magic jack, cable, dvd's and a well appointed kitchen. The bonus was having almost immediate access to the beach, the long walks every morning kept us in shape and the continuous dips in the ocean and pool were so refreshing. It became a tradition with a few of us to bring cocktails and appies and meet on the beach at 5:30 for the sunset, not to hard to take. Shopping and restaurants are only a 10 minute car ride and we discovered some good local spots as well, check out the fish market in Gorgona, excellent sea bass and shrimp. Spectacular views abound, day trips to Valle, Panama City and other attractions are very convenient. If you are looking for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all spot, this is it."

"My husband and I were looking to explore Panama and this beachfront condo was the perfect choice! Having been to Panama for several vacations this place met our expectations and more! Within walking distance from the beach it was perfect to pick up and go for long walks (which is safe to walk for miles) or for a quick swim in the ocean to cool off. The condo is only an hour away from Panama City and the property is very well kept. The condo was super clean equipped with a full kitchen, a/c, washer/ dryer, workout room, pool and everything you need to relax. The weather was PERFECT… SUNSHINE and 30 degrees everyday! This place is also near to Coronado for local groceries (5 min drive). The best experience has been the owners that have been very nice and quick to respond to any questions we had. We definitely will return!"
