Panamá Oeste Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 2 to 6 - FREE phone calling to U.S./Canada

This 3 bedroom 2 bath condo located on beautiful Playa Serena Beach is part of Playa Serena Resort gated beachfront community. Our beachfront connects directly to Coronado Beach. This beautiful condo isn't a short drive to the beach or a short walk to the beach, this luxurious, fully equipped condo is ON the beach. You have several miles of beachfront in each directon; great for walking/running/sunning..... just enjoying. From the patio of this 19th floor condo you have a wonderful view of the Pacific Ocean and a spectacular mountain view as well. The condo is new with all the comforts you could possibly need; Totally stocked and equipped kitchen with all appliances, Split A/C units in the living room and each bedroom, flat screen TVs in the living room and each bedroom, WiFi throughout condo, pool, equipped exercise room. With the wonderful ocean breezes, we seldom use the A/C units.

The kitchen is also fully equipped with any appliance you might need: Coffee maker (and coffee grinder), microwave, blender, juicer, and all of the glassware, dishes, bowls, pots & pans, silver and cutlery you could possibly need. There is also a laundry area with high quality, front loading washer/dryer. This secure home will comfortably accommodate 2 to 6 people.

Coronado is less than a 5 minute walk down the beach or a 5 minute drive. In Coronado you'll find a 24/7 walk-in medical center, 4 large 24-hour grocery stores w/ pharmacies, Catholic Church, Synagogue, Banks and restaurants. Nearby you can travel to El Valle mountain village with: Thermal Springs, Treetop aerial ride, peaceful mountain forest trails and Handicrafts and Farmers markets. You can drive or take tours of the Panama Canal, or visit nearby towns and enjoy natural tropical settings, a rain forest and more in the way of Ecotourism.

You can see and hear the surf hitting the beach from the patio of the condo. Since you can hear the surf from all 3 bedrooms the sounds of the surf will lull you to sleep each night.

All bedding, towels, wash cloths and kitchen towels and beach towels are provided. The condo is fully equipped with all kitchen appliances, dishes, silverware and knives, table-wear, comfortable furniture, beds and patio table and chairs. We have a porta-crib for people who have a baby.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed and an en-suite bath and beautiful ocean/bay views. The 2nd bedroom has a full size bed and gorgeous mountain/valley views. The 3rd bedroom has a queen size bed with a double bed mounted on top for more sleeping options when couples or 2 children are involved. The windows here also have beautiful mountain and valley views. All 3 bedrooms receive great cross ventilation when you leave the windows open.

We have stayed at some rentals that just were not what they advertised. You will have my email address (and there is very good high speed internet at the condo) and my cell phone number in the US. You can contact the manager and/or email or call me if you have any problems. There is a phone in the living room and an extension in the master bedroom where you can make and receive calls from the U.S. and Canada and they're FREE!!!

There are no 'hidden' costs in the rental amount we give you, i.e., taxes, linen service, government fees,etc. All costs are seen by you up-front before you put a deposit on the condo.

Recently we talked to a Panamanian on the beach who had just bought at Playa Serena and he said, 'this is the first 'beautiful' beach you come to from Panama City.

We really love it in Panama and we really love Playa Serena and the beach and surrounding area and we're sure that you will love it also.

If you're interested in getting a rate for a stay, it is a good idea to contact us after you get a rate from HomeAway or VRBO. Sometimes the rates they give you are not completely accurate (the software is figuring your dates and costs) and we also can often show you payments methods that will save you money.

About Tom or Karen

Tom and Karen Szewczyk live and work in Syracuse, New York. Tom was a portrait photographer for 35 years and is a real estate investor and consultant. Karen is a Neo-Natal Nurse Practitioner and also is a real estate investor.

Tom or Karen purchased this condo in 2009

Why Tom or Karen chose Panama

We spent a lot of time looking for an oceanfront home in the Caribbean and in Central America. We visited a LOT of places and looked at a LOT of property. When we found this development and did some research on the developers and the project in general, we were very comfortable with the purchase. Now that some time has gone by we're more comfortable than ever that we bought just what we were looking for and we love this area, the people and this comfortable, homy resort.

We're far enough out to have all the privacy and slower pace we enjoy and yet close enough to everything we might need. Just 1 hour from Panama City, 4 Km from 4 different (large) grocery stores, 1 hour from the Panama Canal, 35 minutes from el Valle and about 60 seconds away from one of the most beautiful beaches in Panama, just outside our front gate.

What makes this condo unique

FREE phone calls. There is a phone in the living room. You can make and receive phone calls FREE from the USA and Canada. You will also have the use of a Panama cell phone for local calls. The resort of Playa Serena is a very friendly place to spend your days and evenings. We just love the views from the patio from early morning to late evening. The weather in this location is just so nice that we seldom close the patio doors and always eat outside and enjoy the mountain and ocean views from the 19th floor patio.

Owner's Response: Bryan, We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. We work hard to be sure that our condo has all of the comforts of home and it's nice to hear from guests when they've enjoyed themselves so much. We're glad that we had enough room to extend you stay for another week before someone else checked in. Tom & Karen

Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

To start off I would give this Condo Rental a five star rating.

My wife and I stayed at this condo in Neuva Gorgona, which is located right on the beach for the month of Feb 2016.

The Condo location and surrounding area were as wonderful and beautiful as it gets in Panama.

The beach was soft white and black sand with very few rocks or seashells to bother your feet as you walked the long stretch of beach in either direction with your feet in or out of the ocean.

Waking up in the morning to have coffee on the large balcony to hear the ocean waves crashing onto the shore and feeling the warm breezes wafting through the air with the smell of the ocean made it feel serene and calm every day. This was one of my greatest pleasures in the early morning hours.The view from the balcony was breath taking.

The condo was equipped with everything you need to eat in if you so desired, but the restaurants in the area and in Coronado, a 15 minute car or cab ride away, were spectacular.

The three bedrooms were all equiped with queen beds with very comfortable foam matresses, the linens and towels provided were also very nice.

The TV's were newer flat screen models and had HDMI access.

The local supermarkets were full of name brand products and reasonably priced but the best buy for local fruits and vegetables were the road side stands.

The staff at Playa Serena was all very friendly, and although most did not speak English very well they would always wave and say ola with a smile.

Our month stay there seemed way too short as we were just getting used to the place when we had to pack up and come home to Windsor Ontario Canada.

I would go back without hesitation, if it is available.

Playa Gorgona,

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Panama and at the Condo with our 4 kids ages 13-21. The place was meticulously clean, comfortable and welcoming. Everything I could think of was there - boogie boards, blow dryer, scotch tape, baggies, and wraps, all cooking supplies, and much much more. Tons of towels, pillows, etc. Views were gorgeous from all sides. We walked out the back door of the building each afternoon to the pool and then down some steps to the beautiful beach where we watched the sunset each night. New Year's Eve - and beyond- fireworks were amazing. Security on both sides of the building was 24 hrs - I never ever felt unsafe. We spent most of each day touring within an hour of the condo - and had fun filled days, ziplining, boating to monkey island, snorkling, hiking in rainforests, near waterfalls, seeing the Canal museum, exploring downtown Panama City and more.

Great vacation and family time!

Paridise in Panama

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely condo for vacation and our first trip to Panama to see if we would want to consider retiring in Panama. Oh, what a beautiful place we found Panama to be and the condo had EVERYTHING you needed. Spacious rooms, a beautiful view of the mountains and the ocean. Tom had provided every possible piece of information , from driving directions, to where to eat, shop and visit. I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone wishing to travel to Panama and enjoy this beautiful country. We are already planning our next trip back, and Panama is definitely a major consideration for our upcoming retirement. You can't go wrong with Plya Serena 19D. If you go be sure to eat at the "Rincon Catracha" , this restaurant is as local as you can get, but the meals are outstanding. You literally eat on the homes front porch, I guarantee you will have one of the best meals you have ever had, and the price isn't bad either. My, wife, one of our daughters and myself had a three course meal, several drinks and awesome service and our bill was $26 total. Also walk to the local fish market and get fresh seafood for really great prices. I got 18 shrimp as big as my hand and 3 corvina(sea bass) and langostine for $30. There is a great pool, beach access and the most wonderful salt and pepper sand beach. The Panama Canal and El Valle de Anton are great day trips and easy to get to from the condo. Thanks Tom and Karen for sharing your condo.,

A Really nice place to spend time!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice place to stay with all the comforts of home. The owners are very accommodating and have not forgotten anything that needs to be there to make the stay memorable. They have the most impressive list of details of the area, emergency numbers, grocery stores, ect. that I have ever seen. If you need to know about something, it will be in the welcome letter. We live in the area but rented here because of the 3 bedrooms to accommodate family from the USA. Our children and grandchild were very happy with the unit and the pool as well.

Thank you so much Tom & Karen for a wonderful stay.

Ideally Located, Extremely Comfortable, A Gem

  • 5 of 5

We almost made a mistake by booking a condo in Panama City, don't do it. This condo is ideally located for visiting all of Panama including the City, Gamboa, the Miraflores locks, El Valle and more with a rental car. Nearby Coronado has great supermarkets for your grocery supplies. Highly recommended is a deluxe restaurant in El Valle called La Casa de Lordes - make a internet reservation ahead of your visit, you will not regret your visit there, and, tie it into a visit to the Sunday market. A must visit is the Fish Market and Historic area in Panama City. We spent a night at the Rainforest Resort and enjoyed the Gatun Lake Expedition (offered through the Resort), the Miraflores Locks (20 minutes from the Resort) and booked a full day tour of Barro Colorado through the special Smithsonian program. The owners of the condo provide you will great directions and other information to make your stay memorable. Book it now!
