  • Beachfront oasis

    "After spending 3 weeks in a tiny little Casita in Coronado, we were thrilled to walk into this enormous beachfront oasis for the second half of our Panama vacation. The view is spectacular and the beach access divine. This is one of very few places we've found here with shade on the beach, courtesy of the palm trees and the man-made palapas just outside the secured access point. With lounge chairs you can roll onto the beach and the friendly guards watching over your stuff if you go for a walk, you can enjoy the beach here unlike in neighboring Coronado. We walked to the natural tidal pools at low tide and along miles of empty beach each day. The local fish market is a huge plus and we enjoyed the fresh catches of Tuna, Redfish, and Corvina. The unit itself is very clean and spacious with a large and well equipped kitchen, modern appliances and tremendous area for food prep. Seating in the living area is plentiful and comfortable. We only found a couple minor areas for improvement, we wish the bed was larger, and the cable service for the TV didn't work during our stay. Otherwise, it was perfect. There are 6 restaurants within a stone throw from local fonda to the top rated Bahia Beachfront restaurant and a choice of 2 local super minis. Transport to the highway is easy on the local bus for 30 cents and from the highway you can easily get anywhere from Penonome to the city in about an hour. Lots of activities here as well, a pool and foosball table, ping pong, gym, library of novels in the common area and good wifi in the unit. Staff are friendly and helpful. Booking was a bit more difficult with contracts and less payment options but worth the effort in the end."

  • Great apartment! Get what you see!

    "We went there for our Easter Holidays, with 3 kids. Weather was great though too windy this time of the year, but had a great time. Beach is great, although there is not much shade/bohios, recommend taking your own sun umbrella. Other option is the excellent laguna and all the activities it offers, we really enjoyed it and will go back when possible! Thanks John for your prompt response! Good job of the conserjes as well."

  • Wonderful place for a family vacation!

    "We decided to book a last minute mini-family vacation and the owner was able to accommodate us. She responded promptly and we were able to easily make payment and access the apartment. The apartment was floor to ceiling with windows, giving breath-taking views of the ocean, mountains, and sunset. There was plenty to do as a family, including 2 beautiful pools and private beaches. The apartment contained everything we needed during our stay and various groceries stores were nearby. We would definitely recommend!"

  • Girls Getaway over Spring Break

    "Went with my best friend over spring break to stay at this awesome place! We've never been to Panama before but it was unforgettable. The weather was hot and the sun was always out. Everything in the apartment was so clean and well-cared for. We both slept with the windows open and were awoken by tropical bird calls and the sunrise over the hills. The apartment had everything we needed, as well as a welcome packet with information on the area, things to do and how to get around. We made coffee and breakfast every morning and cooked dinner most nights and sat on one of the beautiful decks, overlooking the jungle and the ocean, truly spectacular views. We spent the afternoons with a quick 3 minute stroll down to the ocean, tanning and swimming, or at the pool chatting. The beach was so private, only a few other residents or locals were out on a walk or fishing. It was a quick drive to the supermarket, we didn't have a car, just took an affordable cab and stocked up on fresh produce and tequila! We were able to use the Internet and Apple TV to watch and work on whatever our hearts desired. We came back to New York tan and relaxed after a week in paradise, and got the best local tamale known to mankind on our way out. This is a perfect place to stay for a girls getaway or a romantic trip. The place is full of books, so if you're a studious writer looking for secluded travel, this would also be the perfect place."
