Overview

About the property

2 BR 2 Bath Ocean and Mountain views

Our freshly painted and redecorated 2 bedroom/2 bath condo is on the northeast corner of the ninth floor of the Coronado Bay tower, high enough for a wonderful view, but low enough for you to hear the roar of the waves crashing onto the sand. All exterior walls are glass, for spectacular views, and the wall separating this unit from the next door neighbor is concrete, for maximum privacy. The lower sections of glass are fixed, and the upper sections slide open to let in the ocean breezes.

Its east side location means that this apartment does not get the harsh afternoon sun, and vinyl roll-up shades allow you to darken the bedrooms if you would like to nap. The fully equipped kitchen (stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops) is open style, so no one is ever cut off from the fun, and you can enjoy the view of the mountains as you brew your morning coffee.

Behind the kitchen, you will find the utility room, with a small sink, washer/dryer and extra supplies. In the spacious master bedroom, you can watch the flat screen television before dozing off in the king size bed with memory foam mattress pad. All of your luggage will fit easily into the big walk-in closet, and the large en suite bath with cabinets and granite counter top gives you plenty of convenient storage space. The second bedroom has a queen size bed and is right next to the second bathroom.

New surge protectors on the electrical panel mean that you can safely connect your electronic devices to any outlet.

Coronado Bay is a beautiful, secure development where you can admire the lovely flowers and manicured grounds on your way to the infinity pool that overlooks the beach. If you have children in tow, you can go on past the infinity pool, down the stairs to the beach level where you can stretch out on a chaise lounge and soak up the sun while they play in the children’s pool, protected from the sun’s rays by the large tarps overhead.

Just beyond the children’s pool is a cabana area where guests gather for fitness classes and a few steps beyond that is the beach access gate. After a leisurely stroll along the beach at low tide, you can explore the rock outcropping that emerges as the waves recede, exposing an inviting tidal pool teeming with small crabs and possibly a fish or two.

As you re-enter the gate, using the key fob that opens all of the access doors and gates on the property, there is a shower station and a hose for rinsing the sand off of your feet.

For a change of scenery, just take the elevator to the rooftop, where you will find a sparkling pool with chaise lounges for sunning and a large, shaded social area with comfy sofas and chairs for visiting with friends or relaxing with a good book. The Plexiglas wall that surrounds the rooftop gives you breathtaking, unobstructed views of the coastline, the ocean, or the mountains, which you can enjoy without getting up from your chair.

If you’d like to work out, you can go up the stairs to the gym and use any of the exercise equipment.

Coronado Bay is on the beach in the gated community of Coronado, within walking distance of three restaurants and a convenience market and a quick 2 mile taxi ride from the commercial center of town. Guests have easy access to four super markets, many restaurants, ATM’s, casinos, beauty salons, an equestrian center, a healthcare clinic, shopping, and the fast food mainstays, McDonald’s and KFC. It is approximately 1.5 hours from Panama City’s Tocumen Airport and 30-45 minutes from the mountain community and handicraft markets of El Valle de Anton. It makes a great base from which to explore this part of Panama.

It was “love at first sight” when we walked into this condo, and we hope you will enjoy our little slice of heaven as much as we do!

Why Linda Wimberley chose Panama

This apartment was exactly what I had dreamed of, fabulous views, right on the beach, beautiful pools, close to everything in Coronado, and very secure.

Well Appointed Condo on Beach

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we arrived at Linda's condo, we loved it. Situated on the 9th floor with a deck that gave us lots of shade and cool breezes, this condo was all you need. The condo was fully appointed with ample furniture, great TV package, plenty of kitchen dishes, utensils, and cooking pots and pans. The fridge was good size for 4 people. We didn't need to bring a thing. Even spices were well stocked. There are 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master suite was huge and the second bedroom was comfortable. Good showers. We loved the buildings common areas and especially enjoyed sitting at the upstairs pool watching the sun set each day. This was the perfect getaway and we would recommend staying at Linda's condo to anyone. This condo is a '2 Thumbs Up'! It was the ideal home away from home. Thanks for allowing us to rent your condo Linda.

Owner's Response: Errol, I'm so glad you enjoyed your vacation! We love Coronado and want all of our guests to love it too. We look forward to spending some time by the rooftop pool ourselves (as soon as we get our home in Tennessee sold), and we hope you will come back to stay with us again.

It's like coming home......

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year in 907 and we love the renovations! From the added panty & larger sink in the kitchen to the new bedroom suite in the second room it's fantastic. This unit has everything you could need or ask for. Linda is wonderful to deal with - always quick responses and having Tammy on site takes away any worries. We look forward to returning to our home away from home every February!!

Wonderful accommodations in Playa Coronado

  • 5 of 5

The condo was superb; clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you could possibly need and more. Linda thought of everything and is clearly very organized! The manager Tammy was outstanding and helpful. The building itself and pools were clean and well-maintained. Access to the beautiful beach was easy. Would recommend Linda's condo without hesitation!

Great sea side condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 15 nights in January. We really loved the unit and the building. The apartment is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need from kitchen gadgets to pool floaties; they have thought of everything. We spent alot of time at the pools on the property because we have a child. They are well kept and very clean. The one on the roof top patio is a particular favourite. The beach below is beautiful, calm and stretches for miles. I highly recommend this place. I would definitely stay here again.

Perfect condo. Best location and building in the Coronado area.

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from spending a month in Coronado, in this condo. It is on the 9th floor (above the trees), with a view primarily overlooking the jungle, El Valle, Campana, and the bedrooms have a nice partial ocean views up the coast to the North East. All the views were beautiful.

The condo is mostly floor to ceiling glass. It is especially striking in the bedroom which has two full walls of glass as it is on the corner.

The condo truly has everything you want (coffee pot, hair dryer, laundry, AC, wifi, cable, fully stocked kitchen equipment). There are a few pool floats for adults and kids as well.

The finish on the condo is really nice with tile and granite. Modern and nice.

The on-site property managers are really helpful and take care of any issues immediately.

The three pools (rooftop, beach level and kiddy pool) are only shown-up by the amazingly soft black (mixed black/white) sand beach. There were very few people on the beach during the week, and only a few more on weekends.

There is a mini-super (small store) at the end of the block, and within a two block walk a few restaurants. One is Picasso, which is an open-air wood-fired pizzeria which has a rocking happy hour on Wednesday evenings. Our favorite restaurant in the area was about a 1-2 miles away. It is a local joint called El Rincon Cubano.

I would strongly recommend renting a car (we used Rob with Gold Coast Autos), as it is too far to walk with a handful of groceries (a couple of miles) from the three grocery stores.

Most importantly, when we had a few questions, the owner was immediate with her response, along with the property managers. She was also amazingly helpful in answering questions about the area, connecting us with a ride to/from the airport (I would strongly recommend this and NOT rent a car at the airport), etc...

Adventures in the area:

50 minute drive: El Valle

30 minute drive: Campana National Park

1:15h drive: Miraflores Locks

1:30h drive: Casco Viejo

Overall, this we had an amazing trip and absolutely loved the unit. The next time we come back, we will absolutely be renting the same condo.
