Nestled a short stroll from the beach and all of the amenities that Coronado offers, you’ll discover an enclave of four vacation homes surrounding a refreshing pool and flourishing gardens. These casitas offer the perfect choice for your vacation.
Panama is a country rich in culture, beauty and architecture. Visitors are often spellbound by Panama's lush backdrop, beaches and vistas. Leading the list on many "must-see" places in Panama is Coronado, just over a one hour drive from the cosmopolitan city of Panama City. As Panama's first resort development, Coronado offers every amenity and service desired; from gourmet restaurants to quaint ocean-front cantinas, from remote beaches to championship-caliber golf courses. With an average temperature of 84 degrees (29 Celsius), the gated community of Coronado is the perfect place to pursue your pleasures under the warm tropical sun.
Here is more information about my Coronado property and casitas for you.
Nestled a short stroll from the beach and all of the amenities that Coronado offers, you’ll discover an enclave of four vacation homes surrounding a refreshing pool and flourishing gardens. These homes offer the perfect choice for your next Coronado vacation, allowing you privacy and social interaction with other guests as desired around the shared pool or gardens.
The enclave includes:
1. Casa Gaviota – a lovely one bedroom casita located in the front garden of the grounds. A self-contained casita featuring a king-size bed, this home is beautifully tiled, includes an updated, private bathroom, and a fully equipped kitchen. The home also enjoys A/C and cable TV.
2. Casa Tortuga – is a brand new (as of June 2013!) one bedroom casita located near the pool. This casita includes a queen-size bed, desk, en-suite bathroom, A/C, and attached fully equipped kitchen for your use.
3. Casa Toucan – is a one bedroom casita located near the pool. This casita includes a king-size bed, desk, en-suite bathroom, brand new A/C, and fully equipped kitchen (built, brand new Dec 2013th with full size fridge, brand new stove, pots/pans etc. )
4. Casa Grande – is a self-contained one bedroom home featuring a queen-size and double bed in the bedroom, a fully equipped kitchen, living room and full bath. The home also includes A/C in the bedroom, a TV in the living room and desk.
The Coronado enclave also includes:
•High speed, wireless internet
•Games including board games and ping pong
•A large pool in the backyard, hammocks, and inviting chairs/table etc. in the garden
•A washing machine for your use
•A local cell phone is also included for your use with each home; you need to only purchase credits.
We offer security and peace-of-mind with an English-speaking property manager and two on-site caretakers (Vilma and Luis who live in the apartment in the front yard, and are like famly to me!) who are available should the need arise. If you require cleaning and laundry services during your stay, this can be organized through one of the caretakers at a reasonable added cost.
Vilma and Luis have been with me looking after the property for the 7 years that I've owned the house. They dont' speak english, but are very patient and kind and can anticipate the needs of my guests. Normally, I am here, but if I'm traveling.. you are in more than capable hands with them. If you are looking for a true Panama experience and lovely grounds and pool (my backyard is referred to as an oasis.. evenings are special too with the colourful outdoor lights in the palms and fountain..heaven!), with all the practicalities of a comfortable stay (fully equipped kitchens, private entrance to your casita, good quality linens/towels etc).. this is your paradise!
I hope that you will consider spending your vacation with us in my Coronado enclave. 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.
Guests have the luxury of the combination of privacy and social time. Each casita 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. 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! Local buses go every few minutes to the grocery store and highway.. 35 cents. Also, I have a golf cart for rent.
Other Things to Note
If you have found this listing and book.. , you will be one of hundreds of happy guests who will never forget their Coronado experience in this 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 4 years. Not too many rules.. just the basics:
- 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
The property was listed as "the whole place", but it was only a room with a shared common area. We were received at the property by the cleaning lady and nobody explained to us if we could use this common area or not (it was attached to a different room).
When an "assistant" of the owner did show up the next day, she was giving other guests a welcome tour of the property (which we obviously didn't receive) and reprimanded us in front of them rudely that we had accidentally left a diaper in the hallway.
DO NOT stay here if you are traveling with a baby. There is not a single clean indoor surface where your baby can crawl around.
There are better places you can stay for this value in the area. We were foolish enough to book at the last moment. Don't do what we did.
I was traveling while this guest arrived and my assistant took care of the checkin. This guest booked for TWO people, when FOUR people arrived to a 1 bdrm casita only meant for 2, there was confusion and my caretaker was very upset trying to accommodate a surprise 2 extra people. This has happened before on Panamanian long weekend holidays, so I made extra sure with an email to all guests before arrival that they were not here to party and that the casitas were for 2 only. Still, this guest showed up with 2 extras. It definitely caused my onsite caretaker and my assistant stress. If you read my hundreds of other reviews, you will not find a negative one. Obviously there was some miscommunication and I feel badly that I was out of the country.
Awesome apartment right next to sky rail station. Carlos was a fantastic host, very helpful and friendly - helping me find my way after getting lost was no problem. Would love to return one day and recommend this apt. to anyone.
Very nice place, secure, clean, private parking, great internet. Plenty of towels, kitchen stuff etc. No complains at all and good value if you stay with 4, nice thing to have is 2 full baths so 2 couples can share comfortably the apartment.
The appartment was nice, clean and with all the stuff needed. Sarah is always taking care about the needs you may have, but she has a perfect distance, she is very professional and a very nice and funny person. And the help from José was great!
Thank you to all of you!! I'm sure we will be in contact!!!
The apartment is great, clean, well situated (almost everything is walkable), and has a nice view.
Jose came to take us at the airport and it's an on offer you souldn't let pass! He's very friendly, likes to talk about his city and the good spots, and more, and he can check you in at the apartment!
We didn't meet Sarah, but all the emails we exchanged were very friendly. She also verified if everything was ok when we were there.
A little thing, the pictures aren't showing the exact decoration and furnitures... but everything was ok anyway!
I, for the first time, went on holiday to Panama city. Without any doubt, Sarah and José made the accomodation experience on of the best parts in my vacation. From professional handling of the reservation to the warm welcome when I arrived in Panama city, and the foloow up during my stay, every thing was totally pleasent. The eapartment is situated conveniently close to every thing you need as a visitior to the city, nice area, safe and secure, clean, close to shops and supermarkets, private parking (wich is needed) and it is furnited nicely.

I am a Canadian, living in Panama for 9 years. I own and rent fully equipped apartments in Panama City , as well as casitas on my property near the beach in Coronado (about 1 1/4 hour from Panama City) and a brand new 2 bedroom Coronado Golf Condo located on our famous Tom Fazio golf course in Coronado.
I am also a Buyer's Consultant with a reputable REAL ESTATE company in the Coronado Area. I have helped many people realize their retirement, relocation and investment dreams, and I have wonderful contacts in just about any field you can think of. I am happy to help you with everything Panama!
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 and cultures and really love living in Latin America.
Personally, I am friendly, easy going, spontaneous and my friends compliment me on my spirit. I really love adventures 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. In essence, it inspires me....
Am originally from England, but grew up in Canada and moved to Mexico then, onto Panama . 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. Most importantly, 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 and Europe as a guest, and even more extensively as a host.
Please contact me for the best local experience.
Bienvenidos a Panama y Mexico, Sarita
