Property description

Wake up to beautiful sunrise colors cascading over the horizon from your beachfront ocean view balcony in the morning, lounge by the pool or relax under the shade of the palm trees on the white and volcanic sandy beach while watching the waves roll in. Take a walk on the beach and later, let the sound of the ocean lull you to sleep at night. Our condo is located on the 11th floor of the 'Playa Serena' condo. Upon your arrival to our gated condo residence, you will be greeted by our security staff 24 -7, and the covered parking is well lit.

This condo rental can include the owners Suzuki Jimny 4 wheel drive SUV as part of the rental package for your vacation. There is an additional deposit that is fully refundable when the car is returned in good condition and the price to add the car is an additional $200/week and negotiable for longer stays.

While sitting on the balcony you can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, sandy beach, pool and social area, neighboring Coronado Beach Resort, as well as the majestic mountains. Our spacious 1350 square foot apartment is fully furnished and has all the comforts of home including a HDTV, a DVD Player, a stereo system with IPOD holding dock, WiFi Internet, full cooking and laundry facilities, dining and living area and a balcony with a BBQ. The kitchen has granite counter tops, a breakfast bar and stainless steel appliances.

The second bedroom has a queen bed with bathroom across the hall which includes a large walk in shower.

During your stay, you will experience a tropical climate varying between 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit year round. Gorgona Beach is considered to be in the dry arc of Panama so the weather is always warm and a short lived rain shower during the rainy season is refreshing. The visibility of the islands, lushness of vegetation, and kaleidoscope of sky colors is greatly enhanced during the rainy season. Testimonials of Canadian and Americans who live here year round, state that this is the most pleasant time of year for them. Thus Panama has become the number one destination to travel to year round.

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Being typical Canucks (Canadians), we had the pleasure of experiencing the southern climate during our numerous trips into the Caribbean Islands. Being in the Education profession we were only allowed to escape the cold winter weather by getting away during the March Break. We certainly got hooked with the warm climate, gorgeous scenery and diverse cultures. So we began to put our retirement dream into action. As we were both eligible to retire by 2010, we were determined to spend our winters in a warmer climate. After a trip into Costa Rica on one of our March Break get-a-ways, we fell in love with the perfect year round climate of 80+ degrees, warm breezes off of the ocean and diverse topography including mountains, beaches and rainforests. As we researched, we discovered Panama was identical and real estate prices were much lower. In 2006, we set out to work the dream of purchasing something in Panama. Reality happened on our fourth day of our week long stay. After viewing mountain, city and beach properties we bought into a pre-constructed gated residential condo known as Playa Serena ~ a beach home ‘Paradise’ right on the Pacific Ocean. We were able to spend two weeks over Christmas 2009 with two of our three children as we were still in the work force. Finally, we moved into our dream Panama home away from home in December 2010. God does work in mysterious ways, as we have been truly blessed! Playa Serena Residential Resort Project is a vacationer's paradise! It offers a beachfront experience with a resort environment and all of the necessary amenities are within a ten minute drive. One could also say that Playa Serena is a community where strangers can enter and become friends! Hopefully you will experience Panama too and fall in love with all it has to offer!

Why Panamá Oeste, Panama:
Before retiring we were travelling to the islands in search of a place to call home during the Canadian cold winter months. We wanted to own a condo in a beautiful location, that was on the ocean, offered consistent warm weather year round, had a stable economy and safe from natural disasters i.e. hurricanes and tornadoes. As well we wanted a place where we could go on new adventures, explore new areas, rest, socialize and meet new friends. We realized that this quest was a tall order but Panama fit the bill! Our search ended when we found the beach community on the Pacific Ocean, in the quaint village of Gorgona in Panama. Playa Serena is truly a vacationer’s paradise!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Staying at Playa Serena allows us to pause from our fast paced daily routine of activities back in Canada, rest, socialize and rejuvenate. We are consistently struck by the intensiity of a sunrise or sunset over the Pacific Ocean, the majesty of the mountains and the beauty of the lush flowers and vegetation. Playa Serena allows us to leave obligations and responsibilities and let things happen. We can go for undirected walks, explore new territory and be ready for the next adventure to turn up.
