CONDO WATER FILTRATION: 6 Stage Drinking Water Filtration, Reverse Osmosis Tank and UV Light Sterilization at finish! You do not need to buy water this water is a 1000 times cleaner than bottled water!
ELEVATOR FRUSTRATION: One of the biggest problems in PANAMA........... Elevator Over-Use: 95% of the high rise Condo's in Panama is running at OVER capacity of Elevators. The worst wait in a high rise Condo is to end up having to wait 10 Minutes due to busy elevators. Talk about intense anger. Plus it’s HOT and now you’re sweating after just taking a shower! This is the huge problem in the Hotels and Condos in our immediate vicinity! Panama is full and so are the Elevators, don't get caught in this situation! Our Building is engineered for this EXACT ISSUE:
As a Professional Architect it’s an Issue I study closely BEFORE I buy a condo! Our Building has 4 high speed elevators in a 23 Story Building: Many Buildings have 2 Elevators in a 44 Story Building: You don't wait more than a minute for the elevators: Depart elevator onto my floor 16 and I GUARANTEE you will never wait for more than 30 to 60 Seconds for one of the 4 elevators! The biggest problem in Panama: Is maybe a building has adequate Elevator, but in order to SAVE money they shut down 2 of the 4 Elevators so only 2 are operational. This is an absolute killer! I get a lot of clients jump out of their condo or hotel and check in with me for this EXACT reason. It does not matter if you paying $ 50 a night or $ 300 a night waiting for elevators in Panama is not a Fun deal! No matter whether you stay with me or not do not get caught in this BAD program.
TOP ARCHITECTURE: In 98% of buildings when you exit the elevators, you walk out , into a dark , dimly lit, smelly, damp corridor, drab and very unappealing, especially in PANAMA and even more so when situated on the Ocean! Not in this building, our elevators stop and let you out on to the OUTSIDE into a Lush Botanical Garden, with Fresh Ocean Air filling your senses. I know you don't believe this but I swear to you it’s the truth! Yes your right I do have an elevator Fixation, but you will appreciate it!
CINTA COSTERA: We are on Cinta Costera: You don't have to taxi or walk to arrive here: We are here! What is CINTA COSTERA?
DEDICATED GREEN BELT NATURE PATH: (Like Ocean Drive in Miami) Roller Blades, Jogging, Walking, And RIGHT BESIDE THE OCEAN: 2.5 Miles to old city and a magnificent setting! Most Majestic view in the entire City.

About Katerina Deavuska
Canadian Architect Owner. Designed for ultra Luxury Living! Retired to Panama and have been living in this Oceanfront unit. This is one of he most prestigious buildings in Panama and by far the Most Safe and Secure. Very Picky about my furniture, appliances and building location. This unit is located so anything/ everything you need is within walking distance of less than 5 minutes. As an Architect Noise is not acceptable. Condos in front of Panama Bay are on Avenida Balboa: This place is so noisy you cannot hear yourself think. So I handled it and I mean seriously. This condo is set up with Sound proof Accoustical Windows from Germany not South America. I'm picky and you should be too!
Katerina Deavuska purchased this Apartment in 2013
Why Katerina Deavuska chose Bella Vista
ABSOLUTE BEST DEAL IN THE CITY! BEST value: BEST Location: BEST price: BEST Condo: BEST View in the entire City. 25 Gig Internet Lighting Fast Sound Proof on Avenida Balboa unheard of, but its true! High Quality Architecture featuring an exterior atrium at my floor. Pool is amazing with a view of the entire city. Gym is equivalent to any Golds, 24 Hour, or Natilus gym in the US or Canada. 4 High speed elevators so wait time less than 30 seconds! Security staff incredible no crime in this building. Security on staff 24/7! Building Full Wi-FI: Parking Free, Laundry Free, and supermarket out the door 1 minute walk! Calle Uruguay Entertainment district 1 minutes out the front door! Too Many Restaurants out the front door tough to decide as one better than the next! List waiting for you on the Computer Work Station! I could go on and on but then I would lose you. Final point which is by far most important: ELEVATORS so many gorgeous Condos/ Apartments, Etc in Panama City to choose from: But 90% have too few elevators and your going to get unhappy in a hurry! Nobody like waiting 5 Minutes for an elevator to arrive and stop on every floor going down! Your not going to get that with me! No other building has what we have 30 Seconds up and 30 Seconds Down. Don't wast your vacation in a building with elevator impact. Your not going to like it, trust me on this, its important!

This condo is perfect and as the owner says the elevators work very well. Condo is spotless with floor to ceiling windows all across the walls. Kitchen well equipped and bedroom very comfortable. Do not miss going up to the pool area on the roof for a 360 degree view of PC at night. Perfect. Contact if you need driver name for tour. He was excellent.
Comfortable, clean, well equipped unit in one of the best locations in Panama City. Katerina was very helpful and attentive. We will definitely return!
Just as advertised. Beautiful flat with great views.
From beginning to end, this was a wonderful place to stay. Scotty kept in contact with me from the time I booked the flat until I arrived and took possession of the keys. The flat is just as advertised. The view from the bedroom and living room is gorgeous, and the sound-proof windows are a plus. The flat has everything (even laundry detergent), and the location is great. I come to Panama regularly and this flat will be my first choice when looking for a place to stay.
Great place, great owners.
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful condo / appt. Scotty and Katerina were great hosts and went out of their way to make us feel at home and introduced us to all the wonderful features that accompany the appt. We couldn't have asked for more. If anyone ever has any questions they want answered by a fellow renter, contact me at secondeffort via geemail. But I assure you, you'll only hear wonderful things about the appt. and the owner.
We hope to be back, Scotty, so stop renting the place to others so we can get back there....lol!
last minute cancellation
My contact with Scotty was informative and complete until two weeks before my arrival. At this point I confirmed arrival and asked for additional information regarding airport transfers. I did not receive any reply's even after subsequent e-mails. Two days before departure I called some of the contact numbers that I was given earlier and eventually reached Katerina confirming my airport transfer for my trip The day before my departure I received an e-mail from Scott telling me that due to construction the condo is unavailable.The replacement of windows was scheduled months before. If he knew this he should have appraised me of the situation then. Due to poor oversight of his staff this did not happen. To be fair he had lined up another condo for me. I was unable to gather any information or see pictures of this substitute LAST minute switch. This meant that although I had booked the condo at least 6 months in advance I now needed to either OK his offered Condo or find an alternative. Obviously I did not need the stress of trying to find a place the day before I was to leave. Even though Scott seemed sincere in his apologies this sounded like a bait and switch to me. I chose to find a hotel on my own rather than accept his offer.
I did receive my deposit back promptly so I'll give him credit for that. But the last minute lack of communications and the stress I had made this a horrible experience.
Buyer be ware.
Zero Bait and Switch!...................
Future Customers Please be aware the narrative provided by this individual is not entirely accurate!. I go out of my way to be upfront, Honest and truthful. 4 Notices were emailed to this client: 30 days, 20 Days, 10 Days and 8 days prior to his arrival. Finally with no response from him, I called him on day 7! He admitted he had not read the emails, relevant to booking. When I explained we were installing Soundproof windows and the unit would not be finished in time: (Such is construction in Panama) He was most disenchanted. I offered an Identical Condo for rent, same location, but not direct Ocean front! But with a frontal Ocean View! Also substantially less expensive! The client on the Phone, inquired about an airport Transfer, and for this trouble, I offered the transfer for free!
Client seemed satisfied and advised me he indicated he would think it over! However no response was forthcoming from the client until 2 days before he was due to arrive for check in! And this was a call I again made to him! He only then advised he would not accept the unit and was booking elsewhere. I have NEVER missed checking in a Client and I did not miss this one either. He opted to not pay attention to correspondence which is clearly beyond my control. Final result was I promptly refunded all his money immediately! I also ended up paying for 1 night out of my pocket, where I have actually reserved a condo for him from my neighbor, because I missed their cancellation deadline, waiting for the client above to accept the unit! I have a stellar record with VRBO, so I implore that you do not let this review taint the idea of staying in my Condo! When my Condo is open which is rare these days is one of the most spectacular in Panama City, direct on the Ocean! And now for the record has Sound Proof Windows which are paramount to you Sleeping at night! Thank you for your time and consideration in this matter!
We really liked this apartment. Furnished tastefully and outfitted well. Location and views are more than great. Didn't use the pool, game room or gym, but they appear to be excellent. Katrina and Gilberto were also excellent and reliable with fluent English. Scotty's instructions and guides are of considerable help. One glitch occurred when there was a power outage and we lost internet access until both boxes on the computer work station were reset. Better instructions for this might be in order.
INCREDIBLE LOCATION THE B E S T !!!! Note there are many buildings on Avenida Balboa for rent, but NONE except this building has 220 degree Views. Also lets talk about the real problem with buildings in Panama high end rent district. A of beautiful buildings have elevator Issues! You can wait for an elevator in many of these buildings for up to 5 minutes. Talk about aggravating and the same when you return to go back up! They are gorgeous but the owners never tell you about the building being over populated with WAY to short on elevators. Not with us NEVER wait more than 30 seconds for an elevator. I am an Architect and this is the first thing I look at before I BUY. We are the FASTEST in Panama your not going to go crazy here! Across street from Cinto Costera Greenbelt Ocean Stroll: Roller Blades, Jogging, Walking, All on the Ocean 2.5 Miles to old city and a magnificent setting! Most Majestic view in the entire City. Absolute BEST location in the Entire City. Next door to Muti Centro Huge Mall, etc.
