Overview

Panama City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Sit on our beautiful patio by the pool and watch the sun sparkle on the ocean as the many sea birds fly by directly in front of our house.

THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU if you want to stay on the ocean but don't want to be over an hour drive from the shopping and restaurants of Panama City. We are just a 20 minute drive to PC

Our apt is over 2000sq ft, 2 bdrms with attached baths, panoramic ocean views, laundry, large & fully equiooed kitchen, pool on the ocean

****************************************************

Price for a party of more than 2 people is just $25 more per person/per night

*****************************************************

Enjoy drinks by the pool or go to one of the open-air beach restaurants at sunset. Watch the boats waiting to transit the canal. Swim in the pool or Pacific Ocean and enjoy the quiet country atmosphere just 15 min. from the canal and 25 from the middle of downtown Panama City, but away from the city noise

We're on the coast a few min. past the Westin Resort Hotel and the Playa Bonita Resort. You know that they chose this location for a good reason; proximity to PC but away from the noise, and the beautiful ocean views.

The apt is on the top (3rd floor) or our house in Majagual, just through the little fishing town of Veracruz. We offer total privacy with separate entrance and parking.

Use this as your base if you want to explore farther down the coast and interior of the country but don't want to stay an hour from the city.

There are lots of TAXIS in Veracruz or we can arrange PRIVATE TRANSPORTATION AND TOURS if you prefer. We have lived here a long time so have great connections to arrange day trips, excursions to Indian villages, bird watching, canal trips, etc.

About Marilyn Johnson

I am an artist and interior designer, now retired, from the US. My husband is a retired ins. broker. We enjoy living here on the ocean where we can go into PC for social occasions, movies , restaurants, etc. but be home in about 25 minutes to escape the noise and traffic.

Marilyn Johnson purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Marilyn Johnson chose Panama City

We have remodeled this house from a three unit apt to a house with this apt on the top floor. We looked at other beach locations but didn't want to be so far from Panama City. This location is perfect for us. We can hear the ocean at night, watch the sea birds during the day and we have a large yard full of tropical vegetation. We share all this and the pool with our guest, but the side entrance and separate entrance gate the rental parking area gives all of us total privacy.

What makes this apartment unique

Very large and spacious apartment, quiet country location, just a short drive over the canal to the city of Panama. Very private yard and entrance so renters can have as much privacy as they desire, but are welcome to share our patio and pool area too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We appreciated your hospitality and the many small things which made our stay more pleasant. We hope to stay again sometime, much sooner if we could manage.

Thanks

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in Majagual with Marilyn and Jerry. We had business in Panama City but wanted to sleep in a quieter location. It is relaxing and super convenient to drive in and back out before rush hour traffic. I have to agree with the other reviewers that the place is even more spacious than it appears in the photos, and the view to the ocean is unbeatable. You certainly don't find that space anywhere else for this price.

Great people and a great place!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay with Marilyn and Jerry--they were truly wonderful hosts and also became good friends during our stay. They were more than gracious about everything and were extremely helpful in assisting us in finding transportation, and in getting around and planning our trips to the Canal, the enchanting Casco Viejo section of Panama City, and the amazing Artisans' and fish markets. We even enjoyed a wonderful seafood dinner on the patio one evening with our hosts, who graciously prepared all the delicious fresh fish we got at the fish market.

This property is beautiful with a lovely yard, gorgeous pool and comfortable patio, all facing the Pacific. The view from the apartment is magnificent, and the sound of the waves lulled us to sleep at night. All was clean and very well maintained, and we were a convenient drive from all our tour sites. The Johnsons kindly supplied us with a local-service cell phone and even offered to do some initial grocery shopping for us. They could not have been better hosts and proprietors. Anyone would enjoy staying in this lovely environment away from noise and traffic, and with such marvelous hosts. We will definitely be back to visit Marilyn and Jerry again!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn and Jerry were the best hosts we've ever had! The ocean view was perfect from both the pool and the apartment. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants to get away from hotel living while in Panama.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much Steve. We try to be helpful and good hosts without getting in the way if the guests want to be more alone. We really enjoyed meeting you and your group, and hope that you come back again.

Tropical garden on the ocean

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay with Marilyn and Jerry very much. The apartment is super spacious and well equipped, and their pool/garden area on the ocean is wonderful; tropical plants, palm trees, seabirds, ocean surf...

Since we arrived late, we really appreciated the offer to make sure that we had breakfast food that first morning, and having the use of a cell phone was an added bonus. Having the ocean right next to the beautiful yard was wonderful. We spent quite a bit of time exploring the tide pools and hanging out on the nearby beach.

We had a rental car for touring the countryside and city, but sometimes it was just easier to take a taxi for the short ride to one of the beach restaurants. We would recommend this apartment to anyone wanting to do the tourist tours by day and totally relax in the tropical garden afterward.

Spacious Appartment

  • 4 of 5

This appartment, not far from Panama City was very clean and spacious. We were 2 couples and each had huge bedrooms and our own bathrooms. The pool was also a very nice size. The appt. and grounds were always clean and well kept. It was nice to stay out of the city and yet not a far drive when we wanted to tour there. Jerry and Marilyn were a very nice couple and accomodating. The beach is not right infront but possible to walk to one. We ended up enjoing the pool more. Our only disappointment was, we had to cook most of our meals as we usually had a couple drinks while enjoying the pool in the afternoon, so to go to the restaraunts we felt it was too far and not safe to walk in the traffic. However the appartment was safe and very well equipt to cook in and when we needed anything Jerry and Marilyn were very good at supplying it.

Owner's Response: One of the best things about having a vacation rental is that we get to meet so many nice people, and your group was certainly in that category. I can understand you not wanting to drive if you had a few cocktails or walk to the beach restaurants in the dark since sidewalks aren't a part of little country towns in Panama, but luckily the radio taxis here in Veracruz are plentiful and inexpensive

A Lucky Choice

  • 5 of 5

We were very lucky when we chose Marilyn and Jerry's apartment just outside Panama City for our vacation rental instead of a couple of others that we considered. Their place is huge, the view is wonderful, the apartment is very clean, and equipped with everything we needed, the pool is so relaxing, and the location is close to everything we wanted to tour, but out of the hectic city traffic. There is a/c in all the rooms, but we didn't even need it most of the time due to the great ocean breezes.

We will definitely suggest this place to our friends, and highly recommend it to anyone who wants to be near the tourist sites, but not in that noisy city.
