About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU if you want to be on the ocean but don't want to be over an hour drive from the tourist attractions like the canal, Caso Viejo, etc. and the shopping and restaurants of Panama City. We are just a 20 minute drive to PC
**Ask for the special rates for 3-4 people staying over 28 nights**

Sit on our beautiful patio by the pool and watch the sun sparkle on the ocean as the many sea birds fly by directly in front of our house. Watch the shrimp boats out catching the seafood you can eat that night at our local beach restaurants

Our apt is over 2000sq ft, 2 bdrms with attached baths, panoramic ocean views, laundry, large & fully equipped kitchen, pool on the ocean
Price for a party of more than 2 people is just $25 more per person/per night. ASK ABOUT OUR SPECIAL RATES FOR STAYS OF OVER 28 NIGHTS
Enjoy drinks by the pool or go to one of the open-air beach restaurants at sunset. Watch the boats waiting to transit the canal. Swim in the pool or Pacific Ocean and enjoy the quiet country atmosphere just 15 min. from the canal and 25 from the middle of downtown Panama City, but away from the city noise

We're on the coast a few min. past the Westin Resort Hotel and the Playa Bonita Resort. You know that they chose this location for a good reason; proximity to PC but away from the noise, and the beautiful ocean views.

The apt is on the top (3rd floor) or our house in Majagual, just through the little fishing town of Veracruz. We offer total privacy with separate entrance and parking.

Use this as your base if you want to explore farther down the coast and interior of the country but don't want to stay an hour from the city.

There are lots of TAXIS in Veracruz or we can arrange PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION AND TOURS if you prefer. We have lived here a long time so have great connections to arrange day trips, excursions to Indian villages, bird watching, canal trips, etc.
ARRIVING LATE? Ask about our grocery shopping service
We offer lower prices for long term rentals, contact us for information if you are interested.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am an artist and interior designer, now retired, from the US. My husband is a retired ins. broker. We enjoy living here on the ocean where we can go into PC for social occasions, movies , restaurants, etc. but be home in about 20 minutes to escape the noise and traffic.

Why the Owner Chose Panamá Oeste, Panama:
We have remodeled this house from a three unit apt to a house with this apt on the top floor. We looked at other beach locations but didn't want to be so far from Panama City. This location is perfect for us. We can hear the ocean at night, watch the sea birds during the day and we have a large yard full of tropical vegetation. We share all this and the pool with our guest, but the side entrance and separate entrance gate for the rental parking area gives all of us total privacy.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Very large and spacious apartment, quiet country location, just a short drive over the canal to the city of Panama. Very private yard and entrance so renters can have as much privacy as they desire, but are welcome to share our patio and pool area too.
