JAN 2-9 ON SPECIAL!!
Coronado is a great beach community in Panama, with a vibrant expat community, surfing, golfing.. horseback riding, great restaurants and grocery shopping centers, and only 1hour and 15 minute drive from the city! (I have Panama City apartment rentals also)
GAVIOTA is a fully equipped 1 bdrm casita - with King bed, fully equipped kitchen and bath, cable tv and air conditioning. Private entrance. Bathroom totally upgraded (newly tiled, new sink , toilet etc.. as of November 2011)
Here is more info for you about my Coronado property:
In the evening, the garden is romantically lit and coloured lights shine from the palms. It's very quiet and relaxing -- and it's lovely waking to the sounds of Coronado birds, watching the butterflies and hummingbirds in the flowers.
The hotel/golf course is an easy walk (3 blocks) and the beach is only about 2 blocks away.
Wireless internet, high speed access
games such as darts / ping pong table
cell phone provided for your use (in each of the apartments)
lovely big pool in backyard, hammocks, chairs/table etc in garden
Washing machine on site.
My caretakers Vilma and Luis (who are like my family!) live in one apartment, they keep the garden tidy, lawn mowed and the pool maintained, as well as being great security for the property. They are extremely helpful and anything you need they are there. I also have an English speaking property manager, Susan.. who can easily be called if you had questions about the property or needing translating for Vilma etc.
It is also possible for the renters to request cleaning/laundry services from Vilma at a reasonable cost
All info is outlined in the guest book guide you will find in each apartment. If you do not wish daily maid service, you can keep the casita cleaned yourself (have all equipment) and there is a washing machine outside for everyone’s use.
Vilma is a lovely woman, in fact, they have both become an important part of my family and their #1 priority is keeping the property secure and tidy. Guests must understand that the caretakers are spanish speaking only.. but.. if I am not in country, you can call my property manager or driver for translating and I am always available by email.
It is important that renters understand this apartment is self contained and private, but it is on my property, so basically the pool and garden are shared (when I am there, shared with me.. and when I’m not, there may/ or may not be renters in the other apartments.
My guests have loved it.., and the location is fantastic close to golf, hotel and beach. Lots of parking.. caretakers on site, and the price is right!
Why do I feel I stand out from the competition? I do believe in sincere guest service, and get to know many of my clients personally. Most importantly, I ensure my apartments are very well maintained, fully equipped, nicely decorated, and totally functional
We spent a week at Sarah's wonderful property in Coronado over New Years. Great fireworks. The garden is magnificent, pool, covered terrace, hammocks, you name it, you can really relax here. Sarah is a wonderful host, provided tons of tips, i.e. head to Gorgona to the fish market and buy your dinner. It was excellent and cheap. The beach is a 5 to 10 minute walk, and hardly any people. Fantastic sand & water temperature. 5 minutes to the golf course and yoga across the street. We had a fantastic time. Thanks Sarah. Definately a place to return to. We'll be back.
Really nice and quiet spot near Panama City. We really enjoyed our week-end. The place was clean, the care taker were friendly. The yard with the pool is just precious. We had a great time. Thank you Sarah Jane.
We highly recommend Sarah's place. Sarah is an excellent host; friendly and there if you need her, but she also respects the privacy of her guests. Also, she has the best pool we've found!
Sarah was a wonderful host! She provided us with great accommodations, answered all of our questions, gave us insight into the Playa Coronado community and restaurants, and always checked in with us to make sure everything was okay. The place was as advertised, and we enjoyed our time with Sarah very much.
Great stay in Panama! Wonderful tropical garden with pool, peaceful and quite place to relax and enjoy, 2 bloks to the beautiful beach. Sarah is very polite, helpful and friendly and suggest a lot of day trips. Tks a lot for all,

A great stay! This is a wonderful little casita in a quiet area of town. A great location - only about a 5 minute walk to a beautiful, quiet, expansive beach. The little kitchen has everything you need and you're only a short drive (maybe 5-10 minutes) to a 24-hour supermarket. The bed is king-sized and comfortable. Sarah wasn't there during our stay but she was in touch often to make sure that everything was ok. The caretaker on site is absolutely wonderful. The pool in the backyard is private - surrounded by flowers and trees. Sarah provides a cell phone and a book of suggested restaurants and other services. Very handy. This is not a 5-star, luxury accommodation, of course, but you won't find nicer people, it's clean and safe, and has everything you need. I highly recommend it!
Just a first class act. Wedged between two resorts that you can se there pools no problem.
Excellent place to pass a quiet holiday. Very friendly and well located
