Guests have the luxury of the combination of privacy and social time. Each casita and the ain home has it's own kitchen and space, so private. Outdoor areas are all shared, gardens, pool, patios and often guests get together for a potluck, BBQ or just a friendly chit chat. Lifelong friends have been made on this property!
Interaction with guests
As the owner of the house and property, I am most often here and can assist guest with travel plans, questions and we often socialize together. I always offer to arrange group outings to local happy hours or markets. In the rare event that I am traveling, I have caretakers and a property manger to ensure the guests are comfortable and have all they need, and I am always in contact by email in the seldom event that I am out of the country.
I live in the BEST neighbourhood in Coronado. In fact most of the amenities near the beach (hotel/golf, corner store, bars, restaurants..) are walking distance from my house. The major supermarkets are more located at the highway, so only a 5 minute drive
Most folks have a rental car. If you don't have one, no problem! Also, I have a golf cart for rent. Many places are easily walkable.
Other things to note
If you have found this listing and book your stay.. , you will be one of hundreds of happy guests who will never forget their Coronado experience in this convenient, friendly and happy environment!
This property is a great vibe property and I have received the most awesome , polite and fun guests over the last 7 years. Not too many rules.. just the basics (ie no overnight guests that have not been registered, and no fireworks at 2 am!)
- Respect for other renters if present (ie late night noise/parties)
- Shower before using pool
- Being respectful of electricity costs and minimizing a/c use, while turning off when not using or when out.
- rinsing out sand from clothing before using washing machine
- no smoking inside, and even when outside, keep a distance from casitas to not bother other guests.
It's Panama Sarah, a high spirited Canadian, living in Panama for 10 years, and I LOVE hosting fellow travelers from all over the globe! In fact, it's my second favourite thing to do.. that is, after traveling the globe myself (and I use airbnb exclusively for my solo travels - you just meet the most interesting people and wherever you go, you are "home"!)
My Panama by owner portfolio includes: fully equipped apartments in the 2 best areas of Panama City, Charming fully equipped casitas (with kitchens) on my private property 5 min walk the beach in Coronado (about 1 1/4 hour from Panama City), a brand new 2 bedroom Coronado Golf Condo located on our famous Tom Fazio golf course in Coronado, and 2 beachfront studios with kitchenettes and the best amenities, TRUE BEACHFRONT in Coronado.
I know how expensive traveling can be. I keep my rates reasonable so you can make the most out of your trip and have a cozy, personal home base." Excellent hospitality and great value for the money" are comments I receive regularly.

I started (with a dream, a prayer and a loan from a friend! ) a property management company in Whistler in the 90's and owned / operated Whistler Peak Properties, managing 85 high end ski in/out condos and townhomes, along with my wonderful team. After selling my company in 2001 I traveled SE Asia for 2 years, then moved south and put my experience and expertise to work in Mexico and now Panama. I have renovated all my properties and have learned so many interesting and valuable lessons, about the countries , the people and their unique cultures. I really love living in Latin America.
Personally, I am friendly, easy going, spontaneous and my friends compliment me on my spirit. I love a good adventure and my greatest passion is travel. I am curious and interested in other cultures and strive to learn languages and get to know the locals. I have the "wanderlust gene", as I embreace movement, change and adventure. Travel.. ahhhhhh, In essence, it inspires me....
I'm British Born, brought up in B.C. Canada (notice I didn't say "grew up" haha). and have had the pleasure and priveledge of adopting other countries (and families!) along the way. I've been an expat for 13 years, and am still in my 40's. I tell you this, because anyone can do it, no matter what your age or status. ! I believe in a "pay it forward" and am happy to help anyone make their dreams a reality if the goal is to make that move overseas. If the goal is just to have a great holiday and getaway, well.. that, of course is our specialty!
My business , and passion is real estate investing, renovating and marketing / renting vacation rentals in Panama City and country areas, as well as Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I sincerely believe in a high level of service and my motto is "Everyone deserves a world class greeting". I also make a huge effort to keep my properties current, constantly renovating / upgrading items and furnishings. I always appreciate guest feedback (preferably directly and personally) if improvements need to be made and I am always open to suggestions. Most importantly, I and my team believe in sincere service and true hospitality!
Because of my love for travel, Panama has proven to be a fantastic hub, and I've visited almost every Central and South American country with only a couple more countries left on the bucket list.
I hope you will come and visit us in Panama!
I have had the BEST experience with airbnb.. first as a renter, then host, now both! I have used this site extensively in my travels to the Middle East, India, Bali, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, New Zealand and Europe as a guest, and even more extensively as a host.
Please contact me for the best local experience.
