Sit on our patio by the ocean and watch the sun sparkle on the water while the sea birds are diving and the shrimp boats go by to catch your dinner.
We are located about a 20 min drive over the canal on the Bridge of the Americas, along the coast and through the fishing village of Veracruz.
This is the place for you if you want the quiet of the country but don't want the long1+ hour drive into the city from Coronado or one of the other beach areas.
Price for a party of more than 2 people staying 7 nights or more is just $20 more per person/per night
Our apt is over 2000sq ft, 2 bdrms with attached baths, panoramic ocean views, laundry, full kitchen, pool on the ocean
Enjoy drinks by the pool or go to one of the open-air beach restaurants at sunset. Swim in the Pacific Ocean and enjoy the quiet country atmosphere just 15 min. form the canal and 30 from the middle of downtown Panama City, but away from the city noise
We're on the coast a few min. past the new Westin Resort Hotel and the Playa Bonita Resort. You know that they chose this location for a good reason; proximity to PC but away from the noise, and the beautiful ocean views.
The apt is on the top (3rd floor) or our house in Majagual, just through the little fishing village of Veracruz
Use this as your base if you want to explore farther down the coast and interior of the country but don't want to stay an hour from the city.

We highly recommend the Ocean Front Penthouse Apartment. It is spacious, bright, clean and was equipped with everything we needed and had a beautiful ocean view. House cleaning was provided weekly, which kept it clean and welcoming. We really enjoyed the pool also.
Marilyn and Jerry were excellent hosts! They were friendly and respectful of whether we wanted company or not (which we always looked forward to our chats with them!) We had rented a vehicle and Marilyn and Jerry were great at giving directions and tips on places to go. Not knowing how to speak Spanish, they were very helpful in telling us a few key phrases to use. It was our first time in Panama and having a quiet, relaxing place to stay, a home away from home, in between our trips in to the city and to other places was great. We were there for a month and wished it could have been longer! The weather was beautiful the whole time, and no mosquitos or bugs to bother us at all. We enjoyed meeting Marilyn and Jerry and hope to go back again sometime.
Marilyn is a gracious hostess and succeeded in making us feel right at home.
The apartment is very spacious, bright and well equipped.
We had a lovely stay and were happy to enjoy the city and then retreat to our peaceful lodging, only 25 minutes away.
The penthouse apartment is beautiful and HUGE! There is a ton of space to spread out...the master even has a walk-in closet :) The view is gorgeous...not to shabby to wake up to everyday. We were able to take walks on the beach and lay by the pool. We were looking for a place to relax and read without dealing with expensive resorts. This was the perfect place. If you are looking for something off the beaten path, this is it!
The location is good. It is only 15 minutes from the city. We rented a car to drive around the coast, which was helpful to us. It is also possible to catch a cab into the city from the location.
Marilyn and Jerry were gracious hosts who we spent several hours chatting with about the US, Panama, and travel. They provide you with a cell phone that had 5 minutes of time (we were also able to add more, but it wasn't necessary for us). That was a great touch!
Overall, a wonderful experience!
Marilyn and Jerry are fantastic hosts. The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. I usually stay at the Westin down the road and will not do that again. If you are going to Panama - don't waste your money on overpriced resorts - even if you can afford it! This is the first time I did this and have nothing but good stuff to say. Feel free to contact me - I welcome this for additional input. Marilyn and Jerry have my contact info.
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
