  • Absolutely fabulous!

    "My husband, teenage son and I recently enjoyed a spectacular week on Contadora Island. We had the pleasure of meeting Peter, a gracious and very honest property owner as well as Kevin & Jasmine, his dedicated Inn Keepers. They were always available to give advice or answer questions to make our stay everything we'd hoped for and more. A fabulous boat tour of the surrounding islands was easily arranged thanks to their guidance. Contadora is a safe, tiny, quiet island and perfect get away with deserted white sand beaches and turquoise waters. Driving around in the Kawasaki mule was a blast. In March it was sunny and a steamy 34 degrees daily with nighttime temperatures only dropping to around 24. As supplies are limited and expensive on Contadora, we tried virtually all of the restaurants and highly recommend Clarita's for an inexpensive local meal or Gerald's for great food/atmosphere (especially when his pet deer Mimi came by to visit)! We would return to Contadora without hesitation and highly recommend reserving your stay with Peter & Anke. Enjoy!"

  • A fun time was had by all

    "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."

  • Lovely property

    "This is a beautiful well maintained property with spacious accommodations .The house has a modern feel, and It was very nice having our own pool on those hot days or when we wanted to swim under the stars . We had almost no rain while we were here, and if it did rain, it was very short lived The owner Tamara was so helpful with arranging transportation from the Airport to the house and lot of info on things to do in the surrounding areas. (El Valle) We loved having access to the beach club which was a short ride from the house on the golf carts. They also have 24 hour security at all the gates entering into the golf course property. We would definetly stay here again if we visited Panama . 2 thumbs up!"

  • Infinite Beach and Infinite View from the Infinity Pool

    "I would like to begin my review with the words of gratitude to the owner of the place, Zhenia. She loves her house and makes sure her guests fall in love with it as well. She does an outstanding job at it. You can't help but fall in love with the cottage, with its location, with peace and serenity of nature. The beach that you see on the pictures is a minute away from the house and it is infinite. I jogged for a few miles every morning taking dips in the ocean from time to time. The best workout ever! The house is cozy and homey. The back porch is huge. Darkness falls suddenly in the tropics and promptly at a little past 6 pm. You can meditate sitting on your own back patio counting stars, staring into the infinity of the black sky that is so close to the equator. I bet you find a few different constellations, not like the ones you're used to see at home. The kitchen has all utensils you need to grill fresh fish that you buy from the cooperative (located on the beach on your right). Or even better! They will cook that fish for you right there, at the restaurant next to the cooperative. You will be pleasantly surprised with price of food in Panama. Especially if you shop at the little grocery shops in Gorgona (there are a few there). Coronado is close by. A word of warning: you will have to make a left turn through two lanes of Pan-American freeway (twice!). It always made me nervous. Driving in Panama is a different story and has nothing to do with this review :) Please exercise caution and make sure you have a GPS with UPDATED MAPS. The pool is great. I was there the first week of September and had the entire pool to myself. Most of the time. Infinite delight of the infinity pool. I loved my stay in Gorgona and I loved the house. One feature in particular -- digital lock! I didn't have to carry a key with me on my morning jogs. My infinite thanks to Zhenia again. And my recommendation to everyone -- Gorgona is a nice place to stay in Panama, the villa is a perfect home away from home."
