About Katerina Deavuska

Retired Canadian Architect. Arrived to Panama in 2007and have never left except to back to Snow Ski in Canada. I did all the design and Full Renovation of the subject Property . This unit is Small efficiency studio, but I like a unit that is a mini condo but contains everrything. This is what we strive to do give you EVERYTHING AT a very good price, so you don't break the bank on your accommodations.

Katerina Deavuska purchased this studio in 2014

Why Katerina Deavuska chose Panama City

The property situated in the top location in the city. Inset off the two major Highways in Panama City , Calle 50 and Calle Via Espana. We are a block off of both main streets which is good because you do not get the constant bus traffic with our location, yet your still in the center of everything. There is a constant flow of Taxies 24 hours a day should you need one. Best in our location you can walk to everything and really do not need a rental car at all! Also we are adjacent to both Huge Malls 5 minutes away by Taxi or 10 minute short walk. Hospital is only mintues away should an emergeny arise. I located here because its simply the safest location in the city due to the Casino presence. Highly policed as the Casinos do no want you robbed they want you to walk in so they can rob you. But Casinos great food super low prices like Las Vegas was 25 years ago.

What makes this studio unique

My Insider List is an amazing Benefit: Here is your ticket to panama from virtually every perspective. This information is indispensable source of contacts You cannot find this on the internet, guide books, or anywhere else. Its up dated weekly so its fresh and accurate. No matter what you want in Panama: A new Partner, Lawyer, Banking, Real Estate Purchase, Retirement, Move here, Citizenship, Escape hatch from where you live now just in case! Tours, Interior Hotels, Island Briefings how to arrive when and how to go! Dental Work? Medical Work? Hair cut? Beauty Salon to chill out? All in my insider list! I guarantee you that my insider list will do two things for you. It will save you TIME and MONEY! We know where to go, when to go, How to go and best of all my Check in Clerk is in the unit in the mornings cleanings and she can brief you on all subjects, exactly like a Concierege would in any hotel except my Girl is better! She can summon Taxis for you, set up tours for you, direct you, guide you and best show you the extensive maps on our wall very detailed and complete.

This room is so good, tried to extend my stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

Yes, I TRIED to extend my stay, but the room had already been reserved by another traveler. This modest apartment has everything needed and is close to many restaurants, casinos, clubs and the Metro. Katerina and Jessica were very accommodating. And if you like pastries and good coffee for breakfast like I do, be sure to find the Swiss coffee shop nearby.

Muy complacida con mi estadia en Ciudad de Panamá! Katerina y el resto del staff me hizo sentir como en casa, amables, colaboradores y muy atentos, me asistieron en todo lo que necesité.

La ubicación es insuperable, muy cerca de bares, restaurants, la cinta costera y el caso antiguo de la ciudad que recomiendo visitar.

Las instalaciones están como se ven en fotos, muy limpias, ordenadas, acogedoras.

Recomiendo ampliamente este alojamiento para toda la comunidad viajera! Excelente relacion precio/valor!!

Outstanding Location. One of the only truly safe districts in Panama City. All the major Casinos, banks and tourist places here, so its highly policed. No crime here very different area than just 4 blocks out of this district. Dont fall for cheap prices to stay in El Cangrejo, Avenue Central, Avenue Cuba, Avenue Peru, and Especially Casco Viejo. These areas have few if any police and you can be at risk in the day or night! Play it safe even if you don't stay with me , stay in our district of Area Bancaria (Bank Area) We are the heart of the tourist zone with most of the top hotels located here or within a couple of blocks.
