Playa Barqueta Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Discover Panama’s best kept secret in your private corner condo! Listen to nearby Pacific Ocean waves as you drift off to sleep. Watch the sun rise as you comb the beach for sea seeds and sand dollars.

Go in search of howler monkeys, laughing falcons, spectacled caimans, wood storks and iguanas. Discover fresh Olive Ridley turtle tracks in front of your condo and watch newly hatched turtles being released next door at Marsiel’s restaurant. Relax on your covered front porch as you search the horizon for whales, dolphins and stingrays. Feel the “breezes of the ocean”….Las Brisas del Mar.

We invite you to enjoy this spacious, new, first floor, private end-unit oceanfront home away-from-home. The Las Brisas del Mar beachfront condominium complex is adjacent to the Las Olas Resort and sits directly on the Pacific Ocean at Playa la Barqueta in the Republic of Panama. You can view some of the most breathtaking sunsets in the world, right from the covered patio or from the Master Suite!

Enjoy swimming in the large, multi-level pool after a dip in the ocean, a long beach walk (the beach is 8 miles long in either direction and much of it is part of a sea turtle reserve!) or a breezy beach bicycle ride. The nearby mangrove lagoon system provides excellent birding opportunities and endless kayaking.

Kayak and bicycles excursions are available. We are avid cyclists and kayakers and can help with planning activities during your stay.

The Master Suite is Ocean-side! This suite features a luxurious King-sized Bed, private bathroom with shower, walk-in closet and double vanity. It has a private entrance to the outside patio where you can enjoy your outside activities in the comfort of new wicker patio furniture and comfortable cushions. .

The 2 Junior Suites are Volcano-side and feature plush Queen-sized beds, closet, nightstands, lamps and ceiling fans. The full bath is shared between the 2 Junior Suites.

The 'state of the art' kitchen is a gourmet’s delight. Service for 8, stainless cookware, coffee maker, blender, juicer, and toaster oven are supplied. If you don’t feel like cooking, take advantage of three different beach restaurants that serve everything from fresh-caught fish and local yucca to passion fruit sorbets. The Dining Room in Las Brisas del Mar #704 presents a perfect view of the Pacific Ocean surf while you dine at a table for six.

The Living Room has a comfortable couch and loveseat, 40' Sony LCD Digital TV with a collection of over 110 DVDs for your enjoyment. Check with us for availability of cable TV. Access your e-mail and surf the web on your TV or use the hardwired or wireless internet. 2 internet outlets are located in each room and one on each end of the bar. Both guest rooms have desks to use while using your laptop. Enjoy the complimentary Canon scanner/fax/copier to help plan trips and conduct business as needed.

We are sure you will enjoy this unit as much as we do!

Why The Owner chose Playa Barqueta

We used to vacation in Troncones, Mexico which was very similar to Playa La Barqueta. When we arrived here late in 2008 we discovered the bottom corner unit available for sale and made the decision to buy it. We absolutely love it and relish the privacy. We installed a swinging gate on our patio which allows us to enter the condo from the sidewalk AND its only a 30 second walk to the restaurant next door. We have extensively explored the area by bicycle and have kayaked the refuge lagoon system and have placed maps on our website of some nearby kayak and bike rides to take. We hope others discover this wonderful paradise and can get out and explore the Barqueta Refuge next door.

What makes this condo unique

We are avid cyclists and kayakers. After spending 2 months here we have barely touched upon all the possible kayak and bicycle opportunities. Richard has been actively recording all his GPS tracklogs while cycling and kayaking and can provide GPS coordinates to many landmarks. We enjoy a late afternoon ride to the La Siesta for a cool drink and to dance or continue a few miles further to the Tablado for a fruit smoothie. The people here are the friendliest we have ever met and we feel totally safe wherever we travel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nina:We had a great time at your condo. Lynda, Jen, Jon and Brook lived in the pool for most of the time.You have done a great job on making your place at Las Olas very "friendly" for anyone staying there. Well thought out and nice touches on every turn. Good instructions, most small amenities - come with food and bathing suits and not much else to worry about.Absolutely - we will be back for another 'fix' soon. KenBoquete, Panama

Nice condo at the beach

  • 4 of 5
The condo was nice, clean and well cared for. The owner clearly cares about providing her guests with a nice, comfortable stay. The furniture is nice, the beds are nice, the fridge is large, there is a patio, there is clean drinking water, it is on the first floor so you don't have to take luggage up to the 3rd floor and the directions from David are extremely detailed (down to the nearest 1/100th KM!). My biggest hesitation before going there was that the picture of the pool was not a good picture and I was worried that it might be terrible. The pool was very nice. It was large and had a large portion that was about 1 foot deep and there were plenty of chairs and lounge chairs. I cannot give the condo 5 stars because Playa Barqueta didn't totally fit MY definition of paradise but it might fit YOUR definition of paradise. It was quite hot so we limited our midday activities. The beach is wide (150 feet at low tide?), endless, deserted and flat (easy for walking). The downside is that everyone tells you, "Don't get drowned by the undertow." I'm not sure what percentage of people die but when you listen to haters it makes it sound like 100%. The beach is so flat you'd think you could play around and have some fun in the water but we decided to not have our 9 year old out there taking his chances. So, if your definition of paradise includes playing freely in the ocean this location does not fit your definition. However, if you are looking for a remote beach and a nice place to stay this just might be paradise for you. Two traveling tips: The directions start from the "Rey" grocerty store in David. Do your grocery shopping for the entire trip right there. If you forget anything you're looking at a 30 minute drive back to town. There is a tiny grocery about 5 minutes from Playa Barqueta but if you need a weeks worth of groceries you want to load up at Rey. Make a list in advance. Condos don't always have oil, butter, spices, etc... so try to think of everything. Tip 2: The condo owner (Nina) arranged a fishing trip and jungle adventure for us w/ a local guy (Alexander). The fishing didn't work out but we saw 3 families of (poop throwing) howler monkeys. That was awesome and although the monkeys hit me w/ some branches they missed us with the poop. We'll never forget that!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments. I will find a different pool photo to better show off the large pool. The pool is wonderful because you are correct that you have to use caution when going in the ocean at certain tides and conditions, especially with children. We love the remoteness and solitude of Playa La Barqueta, but some people want a bit more "action" during vacations. I am glad you were able to enjoy the lagoon and monkey tour and not get hit by unwanted flying objects!

Thawing out at Playa Barqueta beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5
A beautiful clean and quiet condo. I have mold allergies and this condo is free of molds. The pool is very nice and the perfect temperature after a walk on the beach. It is not a crowded busy place, so a wonderful place to have lots of fun and peace at the same time. The kitchen is super nice and fully stocked, also washer and dryer for you to use. I was here two years ago and came back to the same conco. The end unit is perfect and it is on the main floor. A good place for families to meet you at and have some Panama fun. I hope you enjoy it as much as my family did. Was hard to come back home.

Wonderful break for all the family

  • 5 of 5
What a great holiday we all had! We spent a week in this beautiful condo, and didn't want to leave. We moved to Panama City 10 months ago, it has been a busy 10 months and we were looking for a relaxing place to stay, and this was definitely it.
The apartment and all the surrounding area (pool, grounds etc) were all very clean. The apartment is very well equipped, and there was nothing we needed that wasn't there. It is decorated very nicely, beds are very confortable.
Our children are older (12,14 and 16) so all the important things were there for them, after the pool, and beach, the wi-fi, and google TV, was very popular, not to mention the vast DVD collection!
The one problem we did have was very quickly fixed by Craig the property manager, and it was so nice having Craig so close by, he was always very attentive to our needs.
We didn't do much, but I can recommend a trip to Boquete, and the horses (which you organise from the hotel next door) for a morning ride on the beach, all 5 of us had a great time!
The restaurant at the hotel is very convenient, and the food was varied, tasty and good value.
Also Nina could not have been more helpful, she answered any and all questions we had, was very concerned that we were having the best time possible during our stay.
Thank you so much Nina for renting out your beautiful condo, we would love to return, and will definitely recommend it to our friends.

Owner's Response: Hi Cate. Thank you for such a kind review. Cate didn't mention that the one thing that went wrong was that the AC unit quit. The family was without AC for a day or so but were kind and understanding throughout the ordeal. We were fortunate we could get a new unit installed quickly and all was back to normal! We look forward to your next stay.

Beautiful, relaxing, quiet beachfront Condo

  • 5 of 5
Here was the first ocean front condominium I could truly relax at! The descriptions and photos were spot-on; the residence and grounds are spotless; the owners went above and beyond answering our questions; I certainly would recommend it to friends; and there was plenty to do nearby in addition to the pool-swimming, ocean-bathing and beach strolling: biking, dinning in David, hiking & birding outside of Boquete and Cerro Punto, and excellent horseback riding next door from the stables at the Las Olas Hotel. Fresh vegies and fruits can be purchased down the road from locals who are welcoming. The weather is hot and sunny. Nearby restaurants serve up the catch of the day for a song. Nights are quiet for refreshing slumber, but don't retire before stepping out with a headlamp to look for exotic wee beasties- they (reptiles and birds, especially) are there patiently waiting for you!

It's worth the trip! This 3 bedroom condo was amazingly spacious. Very clean with all the amendities and decorated nicely as well. The pool was extremely nice and clean a good place to cool off. The beach was the biggest I've ever seen with very few tourists. It's fun to body surf and play in the waves, they were not too big. The condo owners that were there, were very friendly and gave good tips on fun adventures to pursue. We did lots of biking every morning and one day took a tour in the lagoon area to see the monkeys. Also hiked the rain forest. The fruits and vegetables were so cheap and fresh off the stand. David is 30 minutes away for shopping and fun city activities. Your money goes along way in Panama it is very cheap. The condominium is located in a perfect setting. They get the morning land breeze and the afternoon ocean breeze, so the temperatures are not too hot but just right. I will definitely go back to this condo for a winter vacation. I loved the location, it was in the first floor and on the end, so you have an awesome view and more privacy.
