Farallon – An unforgettable holiday in paradise awaits you. Travelers to this beach will find themselves borne away by the deep-blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and its warm gentle breezes. Located on the Pacific coast just 80 minutes from Panama City. This house was inspired in Thai Architecture. This more than 1 acre beach house is located beachfront. At the same time, the house is secluded in a private development “Quinta Sol y Mar” in order to have privacy away from the rest of the community. Close to Buena Ventura and Playa Blanca resort; the exclusive and gorgeous house was distinctively planned by the owners to enjoy quality family time.
I am a single mother with 3 kids, years 22, 20, and 17. We are a hard working family. I love my beach house and I want to share the happiness I feel when I am there, with people all around the world. I rent this house because I almost never have the opportunity to go now that my kids are at college.
Ilianne Krupnik purchased this house in 2002
I had a vision when i bought this property, I was one of the first to buy a space at Farallon. Now thanks to the Resorts and Touristic Development this property is really good located.
Enjoy wide bay views and color-soaked sunsets from this private lot lined with towering palms and fruit trees.
The place is very well situated and quiet, except on the 1st of Jan, since there is a public access to the beach almost next door, it was terribly crowded and noisy that day... Besides that, we were able to relax and truly enjoy our vacation. We also had the JWMarriot facilities a few blocks away, so we had access to their fine restaurants and amenities.
We really enjoy our stay, we were a group of 10-12 young friends and had an overall good experience; I've listed some pro/cons on this property so that you can have a better picture on what to expect.
The house is really nice, with nice decoration and in a really quiet enviroment. Is great for a weekend with friends and/or family.
Beautiful garden, with a small pool and, since this is a beachfront parcel, you have an outstanding ocean view from the terrace.
The beach is quiet and really nice too, we have been alone the whole weekend and could enjoy a lot there despite the weather was not the best. Please don't expect a caribbean beach! this is a regular Panama pacific beach, similar to Buenaventura, warm temperature, it is not fully transparent and have some few waves.
There is a big supermarket 3 min from the house, that's great because you don't need to bring everything for all the days that you are staying.
The BEST 2 things are: 1) The HUGE open terrace with ocean views, oustanding for a get togheter, eating, bbq, etc and is also very well mantained, 2) The Staff (Mery & Francisco) they were really kind to us, helped a lot cleaning and mantaining the house in order and in addition very polite and on top of everything we need.
The "not so good" things you should consider are the following:
1) Actual Capacity: Although in the publication says "Sleep 12" the house has real space to accomodate 8-10 people in 3 bedrooms with a total of 4 queen/king size beds. The 4 extra places to reach the 12 are cots that can be placed in different places of the house or directly in the bedrooms. Bear this in mind because the price is considerably higher for each new guest (aprox $100 per guest per night). In addition there is a fridge in the kitchen that is kind of small to keep food for 12 people staying 2-3 days, and there are not enough plates/clutery for 12 either, so consider this when planning the menu. There is a big freezer so maybe is better to keep your things there frozen or buy in the supermarket what you need for each day.
2) Mosquitos/Bugs: Be prepared! in the afternoon/evening you will be welcomed by a cloud of hungry mosquitos/chitras, I think that this may be worse during the panamenian humid season (form Apr to Dec). We stayed in Nov and we literally had to cover ourselves in strong bug repellent! There is no closed living room or get-togheter space so unless you go directly to the bedroom there is no escape from them!
If you are looking for a beach front property for your stay in Panama look no further. Illianne was not able to greet us when we arrived, but the property caretakers Ariel & Raquel made us feel welcome and immediately provided assistance with getting us settled into the house. My wife and I were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and during our stay had a vow rededication ceremony with family and friends and Illiane advised we could hire Ariel & Raquel to assist with light cooking and general assistance. They both were absolutely wonderful and the day of the ceremony their assistance was invaluable. I would highly recommend them to make your stay even more enjoyable. The property grounds were meticulously maintained and rooms were very clean, which reflected directly on the work and dedication of the caretakers. The Rancho outdoor space was awesome and probably my favorite space with plenty of lounging and multiple hammocks to enjoy the beach front view. I enjoyed the small pool as a place to take some refreshments to relax and cool off. The private beach front was just awesome the weekend we stayed we saw very few people and felt like we had our own private beach while sitting on lounge furniture under shaded pergola. The property also has wifi access to stay connected during your stay. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the property and will consider it again in the future for visits to Panama. Oh and did I mention I highly recommend making arrangements for Ariel and Raquel to assist you during your stay.
Stunning luxury property!! Very private beach estate but close enough to attractions like golf, restaurants, and resorts. My family and I had a great relaxing vacation. We enjoyed the beach, pool and loved being spoiled with great service all the time. The Pacific Ocean has incredible sunsets and we loved seeing it from the ``rancho, Living Room Bar´´ every day. Nice, comfy beds.
Highly recommended! We Can´t wait to go back!!!
