About this listing
Charming 1 bdrm apartment in the upscale, safe, and exclusive area of Paitilla. Easy walk to restaurants and mall. Right at edge of Cinta Costera, OCEANFRONT! You can walk to all in the city.
Located on the 17th floor with sweeping views of the surrounding city and bay, Bahia Balboa is a bright and colorful one bedroom apartment in the upscale and secure neighborhood of Paitilla in the cosmopolitan city of Panama City, Panama.
Just steps from the area’s largest and modern mall, MutiCentro, Bahia Balboa is located less than a five minute walk to the best restaurants, clubs, casinos, parks and shopping that Panama City has to offer.
Bahia Balboa features a king-size bed with ocean views and walk-in closet, a fully-equipped kitchen, a full bathroom and air conditioning. The complex offers a gym, a pool, secured parking and 24-hour security. I painted and re-decorated this apartment a few months ago.. , . It's so cozy and bright , with the addition of my Guatemalan pieces and Panamanian molas.. very colourful :) The best part is the unobstructed BAY VIEW.. bay and city and all the way over to Casco Viejo. The apartment sits majestically at the start of the Cinta Costera, our waterfront boulevard along the Bahia de Panamá that has been renovated and landscaped with palm trees, basketball courts, and fountains with spectacular views of all of Panama City. It’s a very popular place for locals and visitors, day or night to stroll, run, bike, and roller blade.. and people watching.
Walk to the fish market and onto Casco Viejo using this most popular and scenic route and enjoy great views, gardens, a park, a children’s playground, and miradors and get a pretty good workout in the process. They have landscaped this area beautifully, with statues that light up and change color, little gardens and it's very secure and safe.
Additional unit extras include high-speed wireless internet, an entertainment system with TV and movie selections in English, washer and dryer, and a cell phone for your use.
Airport pickup is easily arranged. My driver will greet you at the airport and bring you right to the apartment and check you in.
I hope that you will consider spending your vacation with us in my Oceanfront apartment in Panama City. It is my utmost goal to offer each guest a stress-free vacation, in comfortable and well maintained surroundings, all at a price that will help you stretch your vacation dollar further.
I look forward to welcoming you to my paradise ! Panama Sarah
