Keywords: This beautiful beach house villa has about 60 square meters (approx. 650 square feet) of interior living space, complete with two bedrooms, one bath, and a cozy kitchen/living room. Simply walk out to a spacious sheltered patio in the back for your dining and BBQ lounging needs, or just enjoy a little Panamanian peace and quiet on the colorful hammocks to make this the perfect holiday get-away.
Wake to the sound of mangoes hitting the rooftop and take the two minute stroll to the beautiful sandy beach — the rest is up to your imagination. Buy fresh fish from the fishermen to the right, or walk along the shoreline as the time slips by. For those that crave waves, keep going 30 minutes until you hit Malibu, a popular surf spot for adrenaline junkies alike.
This home away from home located within a quaint and securely gated community is only a short drive from the town of Coronado which boasts a variety of malls, restaurants and shops, along with two 24-hour supermarkets.
Our family of two boys and two girls and my TV Producer husband has been spending winters in many countries in Latin America now for over 15 years and we love Panama the best. We've been staying here and enjoying the beauty of Panama now for the sixth year.
The Owner purchased this villa in 2006
This area is right on the Pacific beach for a great holiday experience for everyone. The beautiful mountains with their endless jungles provide for a wonderful retreat for a change of pace and climate. Within an hour's drive we have a vibrant urban centre with world class entertainment. Close proximity to a variety of lifestyle environments is what makes this location this perfect for us.
The number one benefit of Panama and the Gorgona village resort area in particular is the beautiful climate and the constantly wonderful warm weather. The people we always meet here weather locals or travelers are friendly and engaging. The fishermen's market close by on the beach provides an limitless variety of fish and shrimp fresh and right off the fisherman's boat. The long Pacific beach provides for endless peaceful walking and exercise.
Coste Grande is a cozy villa, very well cared for having all the amenities you will need with a nice touch of decor. From the time of booking, Zhenia the owner provided many helpful tips and information including the name of a trusted transport company. Zhenia was truly a pleasure to deal with and ensured we had everything we needed. Having a keypad lock for this villa is a great feature with no keys to carry around. Though a vehicle is recommended we chose not to rent one and got along just fine. We love to walk so this villa was ideal for us. Bikes would have been a bonus but there are none around to rent. The beach is a two minute walk and there are 3 convenience stores for essentials also within walking distance. Coronado is a short bus ride or taxi ride with everything you need. The back garden/covered patio is a wonderful place to hang out. You will always have a place to go if you need some shade. The pictures and description on VRBO are represented exactly. Thank you for sharing your villa.
We enjoyed a week at this quaint casita in January 2015. This "little house" was stocked with all the modern conveniences, but provided a respite from the busy world.
One could relax by the pool, stroll down the beach to buy fresh caught fish and seafood right off the boat or see the beautiful sights and wonders of Panama. We drove back to the Amador Causeway for a partial Canal transit (however, beware "rush hour!), spent time in Playa Blanca, El Valle and Farallon. The restaurants in Nueva Gorgona and nearby Coranado are convenient and offer a nice variety for dinner (especially La Ruina).
The owner Zhenia was very flexible in working with us on arrival dates and on minimizing effects of some remodeling by a neighbor. She is also very hospitable, providing information on places to visit as well as essentials & conveniences available locally.
We stayed for 6 nights with our two daughters (5 and 7 years old) in this nice cottage with beautiful outdoor (plenty of outdoor furniture and 2 very relaxing hammocks!). Our girls loved the pool, and we made some very nice trips to El Valle, Casco Viejo and the Miraflores locks. Zhenia was very kind and helpful, giving us all kind of tips and very detailed directions.
I would like to begin my review with the words of gratitude to the owner of the place, Zhenia. She loves her house and makes sure her guests fall in love with it as well. She does an outstanding job at it. You can't help but fall in love with the cottage, with its location, with peace and serenity of nature.
The beach that you see on the pictures is a minute away from the house and it is infinite. I jogged for a few miles every morning taking dips in the ocean from time to time. The best workout ever!
The house is cozy and homey. The back porch is huge. Darkness falls suddenly in the tropics and promptly at a little past 6 pm. You can meditate sitting on your own back patio counting stars, staring into the infinity of the black sky that is so close to the equator. I bet you find a few different constellations, not like the ones you're used to see at home.
The kitchen has all utensils you need to grill fresh fish that you buy from the cooperative (located on the beach on your right). Or even better! They will cook that fish for you right there, at the restaurant next to the cooperative.
You will be pleasantly surprised with price of food in Panama. Especially if you shop at the little grocery shops in Gorgona (there are a few there).
Coronado is close by. A word of warning: you will have to make a left turn through two lanes of Pan-American freeway (twice!). It always made me nervous. Driving in Panama is a different story and has nothing to do with this review :) Please exercise caution and make sure you have a GPS with UPDATED MAPS.
The pool is great. I was there the first week of September and had the entire pool to myself. Most of the time. Infinite delight of the infinity pool.
I loved my stay in Gorgona and I loved the house. One feature in particular -- digital lock! I didn't have to carry a key with me on my morning jogs.
My infinite thanks to Zhenia again. And my recommendation to everyone -- Gorgona is a nice place to stay in Panama, the villa is a perfect home away from home.
The cottage was in very good condition. Everything was well kept and clean. The pool was cleaned regularly and in great condition. Walkways were well lit at night for good vision. Very warm and cozy place to stay, and I have already recommended it to my friends! Thank you for allowing me to stay at your cottage Zhenia! I fell in love with it online, and fell more in love every day I was there! Perfect vacation!
We had a wonderful stay at Costa Grande! The condo suited our needs perfectly. Zhenia was very helpful with all of the questions we had. Thanks again for a great experience in Panama.
The Panama Canal the world renowned engineering feet is just an hour's drive away with bustling Panama City a few moments further on. Going the other way the mountain setting of El Valle offers idillic peace and quiet with healing thermal springs, farmers market, arts and crafts, orchid farm, zoo, archeological hiking, canopy tours and excellent dining. Closer to home ( 3 mi.) the upscale malls and shopping of Coronado with its Country Club offers golf, tennis and multiple water sport rentals. For the excitement orientated try jumping alongside a waterfall just 10 minutes away.
