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.
