This area is very quiet and away from it all however very close to every amenity you could ever want including two 24 hour grocery stores, walking distance to a local fish market down the beach. It's not a tourist only town - it's a great mix of North Americans and people from around the world, each willing to share a story or two.

Perfect escape from the city.

We only had two days to have a quick trip away from the City before flying home so the cottage was perfect, we all wished we could have spent a week. Mayela was extremely helpful and the location close to the beach was great. Unfortunately our rental car fell through so we couldn't rent boards and surf Malibu beach but the beach was great for body surfing and watching the locals with their fishing boats.
Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us , our goal is to provide a relaxing and comfortable experience for our guests vacation- we have an excellent Bilingual manager , Mayela, and are happy that you enjoyed he home and the great features nearby, we look forward to being part of your next vacation plan

More than a few steps to the beach.

The description says "you are just steps away from the beach." Not true. The picture makes it seem like you can walk from the pool straight to the ocean. It is a long walk or short ride to the beach. The road to this villa is several hundred yards long with huge potholes some filled with bricks. I poked a hole in my rental car gas tank traveling at 10 mph and had to have it towed the first day I was there. Max speed should be 5 mph.
There is on site maintenance to keep things clean. The pool is small but very nice. The microwave is on top of the refrigerator which makes it difficult to use. In my opinion, the kitchen is good for snacks, not meals. There are about 12 units all very close together and everyone is very friendly. Coronado is about 10 minutes away with all the shopping you will need.
Mayela, the manager, is very helpful with anything you might need. They require cash to be wired to them for the deposit, which I was hesitant to do, but they are trustworthy. I give it 3 1/2 stars but not 4. I would not go back mainly because of the bad, bad road to the villa.

A peaceful stay

I loved the rental all you need to stay short or long term. Great BBQ out back. The pool was very relaxing overlooking the ocean. We had been traveling for weeks so the washer/ dryer was much appreciated. We will be back hopefully for a month instead of a week. Thanks for fitting us in at such short notice!
Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us, we do our best to have all the essentials that travellers sometimes see as a luxury in Central America and love feedback like this - Thanks for staying with us , see you again soon

Great Place !

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 1, 2012
  • Stayed: Mar 2012
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this casa ! There was four of us and we found it quite comfortable. The patio in the back is large and has a nice BBQ. The kitchen is quite well equipped and suited our needs. The couches were a bit small and not very comfortable, but we spent very little time indoors. Be careful with the use of air conditioning as it may put you over your electricity limit. We did need to use the air conditioning - but we just turned it on long enough to cool it off inside while we were cooking. There is a fan in one of the bedrooms to use at night rather than the air/con. It would be helpful to have another fan for the second bedroom.
We loved the location, it was a very short drive to the stores in Coronado which are excellent. I would highly recommend a rental car while there. The ocean view is beautiful and it is a short walk to the beach. We bought fresh fish from the fish market right on the beach in front of the casa.
We used the pool everyday - and met some very nice people that were also staying there as well as some of the owners that were there.
I would highly recommend this location.

Enjoyed our stay

My wife and I stayed here Oct. 1 thru 15 on a property hunting trip to the Gorgona/Coronado area. We were in no way disappointed in the property, it was as described. The grounds are beautiful and well maintained and the pool clean. Dimas, the caretaker was extremely helpful and friendly. The unit has air conditioners, but we never used them; just not needed during the rainy season.


Please keep in mind this is not a luxury condo; but if you want a clean, safe and reasonably priced place to stay, this fits the bill. Panama is an outdoor place, you won't want to spend a lot of time indoors. The ocean view from the pool is fantastic and if you want the beach it is a short walk away. If you aren't the walking type, you can easily drive right to the beach and park.

We didn't use the cooking facilities, because frankly it is very inexpensive to eat in restaurants. There are numerous restaurants in the area and you MUST go to La Ruina Tavern for a meal and cold beer (google it).

A note about the roads. The last quarter mile is a dirt road, that can get bumpy. This is NOT unique to this property. If you are contemplating staying inside Coronado, I guarentee you from previous experience that you will have to drive farther on worse roads. That being said, don't get talked into needing an SUV if you are renting a car, you can get around just fine with an economy car.

Mayela, the property manager, was very helpful and has perfect English. She was always available by phone (use the provided cell phone) or email. The wireless internet functioned well, no problems at all. The owner is very honest in describing this as best suited for 1 - 2 adults. It would be quiet cramped for two couples. We would definately consider staying here again on our next visit.

Notice I gave the property an excellent. I did this based on price, expectations based on owners description and previous experiences with rentals.

Map

Nearest Golf
3 Miles
Coronado

Gorgona, Panama, Central America (This is 70 miles from Panama near Coronado - divided highway) -- This area is called the ' Arco de seco ' or the dry arc and is the fastest most popular area near the city with hospitals, pharmacy, grocery, restaurants just minutes away in Coronado. They call this area the Gold Coast. It's a great spot to start off your many day trips that will bring you from Mountain tops to Rain forests to awesome beaches and local hangouts! Have this as your home base for day trip or overnight ventures to the rainforest , to the mountains of El Valle ( 45 mins away) and the beaches that dream are made of. The road is excellent to the villa rental as it's paved until the last few turns. To the lofts, the road is paved the whole way. Easy to find and easy to tell your friends where you are staying.There is a new surf shop nearby that is well equipped for surfers of all levels, they even teach lessons!

Other Activities: shopping, boating,quadding,horseback riding, day trips, birding
