Open concept Villa, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 2-3), close to Gorgona beach
You will love this charming one-bedroom Gorgona beach bungalow nestled in the lush tropical landscaping. The entire unit has been custom-designed with lots of upgrades. Originally designed as a 700 square foot 2 bedroom villa, the wall between the two smaller bedrooms was removed to create one larger room. The result is a beautiful 700 square foot open-concept one bedroom executive beach house, ideal for a couple seeking a quiet, comfortable and modern accommodation. Both the kitchen and bathroom have custom granite counter tops & marble finishes. All cabinetry was custom-designed specifically for this villa. There are several custom-designed cabinets providing lots of storage space in the bedroom. This end unit villa has convenient parking right beside it. Both the villa and parking are within a secure guarded gate, so it’s quiet easy access to your car for going on your Panama adventure or unloading groceries anytime day or night.
There is a cozy infinity pool just down the walkway and the beach is a leisurely 3 minute walk away, perfect for a relaxing stroll or a morning swim.
Our charming & quiet end-unit beach bungalow is one of only 18 units located within the exclusive little gated community of Costa Grande Beach Village. The community has a European feel, beautiful stone walkways, and cast iron lamp posts - the area is peaceful and relaxing, the perfect place to get away. There are palm trees, flowers and lots of lush greenery throughout the property. Sip your morning coffee on the front patio under your very own giant mango tree .
There are 3 shopping plazas nearby. There is a 24 hr. supermarket/liquor store less than 10 minutes away by car.
There is a fishermen’s market located just down the beach, so you can pick-up fresh fish/shrimp to grill for a private dinner at home and enjoy the view of the ocean. You are centrally located to many day trip destinations that Panama has to offer, such as the Panama Canal, Panama Rain Forest, an exotic zoo in El Valle, ferry ride to the island of Taboga, restaurants as well as exploring local towns.
Gorgona has wonderful beaches and you can see the sunrise over the Pacific Ocean. From the beach you can see the mountains and within a 40 minute car drive you can be looking down from one of the mountains to the beach. Nearby, you can check out a world class golf resort, spa, stables, hospitals, shopping, and grocery stores with a pharmacy, nearby mountains such as Altos or the El Valle volcano village with zip lines, zoo, hiking, rainforest tours and much more.
There are miles of beaches for walking or jogging. We will give you a tide chart with the highs and lows and you will be amazed at how much the beach changes each day. The temperature is perfect. It's not too hot and there is always a breeze throughout the day to keep you cool.
If you are staying at the villa for privacy and relaxation, you are in the right place, however if you are more adventurous, there is lots to do nearby. You are right on the Gorgona surf beach and 1 mile from the famous Malibu surf beach. There is a new surf shop nearby that is well equipped for surfers of all levels, they also provide surfing lessons!

Loved the place, would consider renting for 4 to 6 weeks but the water pressure was a big issue for not me but my wife and as they say happy wife happy life. The owner told us about the water really late and from the locals at the complex it’s been a issue in his unit. J.J just spend the $600 to $800 bucks and fix it with a exterior water tank I looked in to it and the units that had it, had water even during carnival . Great location great outside area, away from the pool. Fix the water pressure and you have a five star in Panama standers.
Many thanks for your candid review...much appreciated. I feel bad that the water pressure wasn't up to snuff.
The point of a vacation is to be stress free with the accommodation.
Kirk, I've taken your honest review to heart.
Solution: In a week from now a new 250 gallon reserve water tank with an auxiliary jet pump will be installed at the unit so no more low water pressure ever....problem solved.
Still, it saddens me that your current experience wasn't 5 star (especially the stress it caused for your wife....not cool).
The reserve water tank/pump should have been installed sooner, it wasn't....no excuses.
My sincerest apology.
My goal has always been to treat people fairly.
Kirk, I am making the following offer exclusively to you and you alone:
If you decide to come back for 4 to 6 week visit, not only will I give you a smokin' good deal on the whole package, but I will give you the first week FREE.
It's the right thing to do & Good Folks like you deserve to be treated fairly.
Let me know and I will make it so.
All the best!
Loved this hideaway, my husband and I stayed here for 3 months. The cabana was the end unit - furthest from the pool. So less traffic and very quiet.
The cabana was well eauipped, tastefully decorated.
Loved our stay and would recommend it highly.
A Wee Bit of Heaven
My husband and I rented this place for a week of exploring, relaxing and rejuvenating! This was a perfect location because the place was ideal for just the two of us and it offers a pool as well as the beach. The owner is great to work with and the caretaker in Gorgona is very accommodating. We found having a car was a must for us as we explored the area every day, however, if you wish to simply live at the beach and pool you won't need one because you can walk to the fish co-op, beach snack shacks, two local restaurants and two small stores. If you need variety in a vacation then a car is a must. The description is exact and the wi-fi is as good as Canada. I recommend picking up a few groceries (basics) before you head to the Costa Grande and be sure to have good sandals to walk on rocky road to beach (5 min walk on road that also leads into villa). Very safe area with Canadians, Americans and a few Panamanian owners, who are all willing to help if you ask. The end unit is nice because you are not right at the pool, which you can avoid if there is a bit of a crowd. That being said, except for the weekend, we pretty much had the pool to ourselves. We enjoyed coffee in the morning under the big tree in front of the house - a little shade, a breeze and a friendly hello with a neighbour. Five minutes away you are part of the local community and there is often a soccer game on the field to watch.
We loved the fact that we never saw more than 5 or 6 people on the beach and yet, the city is only an hour or an hour and a half away if you wish to visit other tourist attractions. The area around Gorgona is growing however this little village is mostly untouched. (For the moment) The owner sends suggestions for places to visit and they were great; we did everything he mentioned and more. Be sure to hang out in the local village one evening for a feel of the community. Don't worry about the lack of occasional water pressure because it is better at different times of the day and after all, you are in a beach community. You only need to use the air conditioners to cool the place down and if there are no stray dogs or cats around you can take advantage of the breeze by leaving the door open.
If you like the simple things in life then this is the perfect location for you!
This was a wonderful place to stay, we stayed for 10 perfect days here and the locals are so friendly. The owner was awesome, the area was great. We are looking forward into staying here again. Just a few minute walk to the local fish market were we ate fresh fish/ seafood right out of the ocean. I totally recommended this for everyone that wants to enjoy a simple life and an awesome vacation. One thing I would suggest is that you should be able to speak fluent Spanish when going on your adventures. Thanks so much Jonah! Renee and Miles
Perfect Little hide away
My fiancé and I stayed there during the New Year Eve celebration. The place was just right. Extremely quite, English speaking neighbors that are very welcoming and helpful, very safe!!!
Place was nice, clean and fairly modern. Swimming pool within steps of place. Beach is down an unpaved walkway, about 5-6 minute walk. If you need anything, the local supermarkets are down the main road minutes away and there are two local convenient stores. Although there are children that are onsite, this is a very adult friend community. Great for retirees, honeymooners, romantic weekenders, or just someone looking to get away.
Also the owner is FANTASTIC to work with!!!!!!!
