Coronado is famous for its natural beauty, warm climate, low cost of living and many amenities including one of the finest professional golf courses in Latin America. The course has 18 holes, is a par 72 consisting of 7,092 yards, and it was designed by Tom Fazio, who was recently ranked as the #1 golf course designers in the world.
In addition to their championship golf course, Coronado also has professional tennis courts, a full spa with trained staff, outdoor jacuzzis surrounded by beautiful gardens, an olympic sized swimming pool, 4 restaurants, 4 bars, conference rooms and exclusive play areas for kids.
The newly built Equestrian Club has world class equine facilities an which include 120 stalls, several corrals, and a very large Bohio with social area for events and top notch restaurant.
The beachfront real estate in Coronado and the surrounding beach towns is a mix of white and volcanic sand, and the various stretches of beaches go on for miles. During the week you can usually have huge stretches of beach all to yourself.
My property is only a few blocks from public beach accesses and about the same to the golf course.
Toucan casita has King bed, full ensuite bath, bar fridge, micro and coffee maker . also new a/c unit, bathroom is ensuite. UPDATE, as of DECEMBER, 2013 I am building a kitchen to add on, so this will be a fully equipped complete 1 bdrm with kitchen, photos to follow by December 20th.
The cost of the studio apartment is between $65 and $85/night depending on the season.
Private entrance Casita
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
board games and ping pong
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. It's 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.
Many thanks to Sarah for the opportunity to stay in the fully equipped casita and an additional thanks for the outdoor pool. We spent great nights swimming, drinking and chatting with the other guests around the pool. Sarah is a talented entrepreneur and I foresee a great future for the renovated casitas.
Casa Toucan was the perfect place for me! I stayed for 3 months to get a feel for the area and loved Sarah's property. It's right in the heart of Coronado – just a short walk to the ocean, yoga class, golf and a happy hour bar called Picasso. (good to have a car, tho’)
Sarah is a great host and made me feel very welcome. If there was anything I needed, she went out of her way to accommodate. My unit was clean and the kitchen well stocked. The back yard pool and patios are a highlight -- very peaceful, beautiful and relaxing. Often there were other guests on the property making for fun gatherings on the back patio. The caretakers are very sweet and helpful.
Great place at a very reasonable price!
Really lovely and great place! Sarah is very nice and a great host. The place and garden is really beautiful and we enjoyed our stay very much! Thanks Sarah :)
Beautiful, well kept property walking distance to the beach and two restaurants. Also stayed at Sarah's apartment in Panama City which is in a great location, overlooking the bay.
I spent 2 nights at this place and had a wonderful time! The beach is beautiful and close by Sarah´s premises and the nicely kept backyard offers opportunities to just relax by the pool. Sarah was out of town while I stayed there, but the housekeepers were very friendly. The place was very clean and had everything I could´ve asked for.
In case you stay longer and want to do other things than just relaxing, I would definitely recommend going there by car. Except for lying down, either on the beach or the backyard, there is not much to do within walking distance.
we stayed in Casita 2 for a full week. The room is very clean and meets western world standards. The A/C worked wonderfully and it never got too hot in our room. Sarah's garden is beautifully decorated with local Plants and trees. The pool, a welcome refreshment on warm days, was kept very clean and enjoyable. The grocery is a bit far away, best to take a cab. But once you have all your groceries, the kitchen will sport anything you need to prepare the most wonderful food. It's about a 5 minute walk to the beach. It is a beautiful long stretch of black-white sand and the water is warm. The rip currents here don't allow too much swimming, and activities in the ocean are not really available (not sure if we were in the off season). Overall, this was a perfect spot to relax and do almost nothing for a week. Sarah (the host) was not there herself but she was very responsive and her housekeeper also always helpful. We recommend this place!
