Río Mar House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6 comfortably, Huge Pool and Bohio

Beautiful home on large, private, tropical lot with all the modern amenities including whole house A/C (not common in Panama), Wireless Internet and Satellite T.V. Beautiful pool with in-pool bar stools and a large bohio surrounded by hammocks with a wet bar and refrigerator. Full bathroom at the pool, outdoor grill & 3 outdoor showers. Beach access is a short 10 minute walk down a slightly steep tropical trail used by locals to gather oysters at low tide. It's not treacherous by any means but the uphill return is likely to make you long for the pool. Close to all the area has to offer including great restaurants, mountain adventures in El Valle and you can walk to the famous surf beaches of Rio Mar and Pal Mar from the property. A brand new 24 hour modern clinic recently opened in Coronado just a 10 minute drive away. There are several golf courses to choose from close by. Spend your days relaxing in the pool or lounging on the hammocks in the bohio. An often deserted beach is at your finger tips for dips in the warm Blue Ocean or long walks. Home is a 2BR/2BA hat sleeps 6 comfortably.

A fabulous stay

  • 5 of 5

Drive off the busy highway on the ouskirts of San Carlos and arrive at this absolutely beautiful and well kept oasis. The house has all the amenities one would want. The grounds were immaculate. We spent our days mostly poolside enjoying the cabana and dipping in the beautiful pool. The owners go out of their way to make one's life as comfortable as possible. Love this place

Relaxing get away in beauiful Panama

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 6 nights at the property in March of 2016. The property is easy to get to right off the Pan-American highway about 90 minutes outside of Panama City. The property is just as advertised, clean and location is perfect. The property is also very safe with gated entry. One of the coolest things is you can get up in the morning and walk about 1/4 mile down to a private black sand beach and watch the sun come up over the pacific. The black sand mixed with lighter sand is so beautiful. I would walk for over an hour and at most see two other people. We also loved the ability to buy fresh fruit and fresh fish and bring back to property. A fresh delicious watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple ran us $3.50. Lobster, fish and prawns enough for 3 dinners fileted and shrimp cleaned and deveined was $44. There are close restaurants and the mountains are 20 minutes away. Where can you walk on a private beach at 6am, watch the sun come up over the pacific and be in the mountains at a farmers market by 10am? Answer is here.

Furthermore, the caretakers, Tim and Jenni are from the states and speak perfect English and know the area and are very helpful. We even did a joint a bbq the last night we were there. The pool, hammocks all made for a relaxing vacation. I just can't say enough good things.

Amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

It is not often that my expectations for a vacation spot are exceeded, but this place beat the odds. I had seen a few photos prior to our trip but they just didn't do the place justice. The large grounds are nicely landscaped and very well maintained as well as very private. 100% walled off and fenced with no close neighbors. The casa we stayed in (one of only two) was new and very nice with all modern conveniences and great views of the ocean from the upstairs master suite. The real gem here is the pool and bohio (palapa). both are far bigger than the pictures would seem to indicate and would easily accommodate all the guests this place could hold and more. Very well maintained and just an awesome spot to hang out. The closest beach is a short walk down a dirt road and is quite nice with very few other folks to be found on its mostly black sands. Easy drives to other beaches, small towns, and the foothills and mountains. Lots of good restaurants in the vicinity and the roadside fruit and veggie stands rock. Flora and fauna galore to boot. Go!

This property is amazing. We loved the POOL!! The huge tiki hut was great for lounging in the hammocks. The mango trees were dropping fruit so all we had to do was stroll over and pick a fresh ripe mango off the ground. We stayed in some hotels in Panama and this place was way nicer than any place we saw. Highly recommend it!!!

A great place to get away from it all!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to get away from it all! Just as I imagined from the pics if not better in person. Everything was clean and tidy and the staff attendant was there just enough with whatever we needed - and definitely not overbearing.

There is a great place to eat right in town and I really loved the ceviche to go from the market across the main road. The beach was beautiful with varying scenery to keep it interesting and very isolated...only saw one or two people at a time! Highly recommended!

My wife and I and another couple had such a great time staying at this beautiful little gem in Panama. The pool, bohio, hammocks and grill made it hard to even leave the grounds. Once we did, however, we had a short walk to the prettiest beach you will ever see. The water was clear and warm and every day was sunny. Surprisingly, we came across several great places to eat nearby although there were some occasions when we weren't entirely sure what we were eating because the signs were in Spanish and no one spoke English. That made it fun, though! We even had a mud bath in a place not too far from the homes that was about as exotic as it gets. The homes and the surrounding amenities were just as advertised. I'd highly recommend this place for a great getaway.

Car: recommended

The property is located approximately 100km from Panama City in the town of San Carlos which is nicely positioned between the resort areas of Coronado and Farallon allowing visitors to conveniently take advantage of all the area has to offer. The road to El Valle is just 2km from the house. Many of the areas best restaurants are close to the property and the beach is just a 5 minute walk from the house. Much time was spent researching the area to be sure the property was in the perfect location to enjoy all of the attractions on the pacific beaches of Panama.
