This is an ideal place for those who want to disconnect from it all, in a quiet and beautiful vernacular location. A very comfortable beach house, just in front of Isla Grande, Colón. (Aprox.2hrs 30minutes from Panama City)

The space
The view from our house is just beautiful, with Isla Grande and a natural reef at your feet (literally!)

Boat rides can be arranged to visit Isla Grande, Isla Mamey or the Love tunnel (a road between the marshes), to an Island with sandy beach or just around the area. Great for snorkeling and even scuba diving can be done in front of the house.

Isla Grande is also an ideal place for Surfing.

The property is located 2hours and 30min from Panama City and about 25 minutes from the historic town of Portobello. The are a grocery shops nearby where you can buy the very basics. A full supermarket is about an hour away.

For an additional low fee a local housekeeper can also be arranged to assist you in cleaning the house and also to help you with general information abut the area, charter of local boats, etc.

Where you’ll be

La Guaira, Colon, Panama

Arrival and Departure:
Please let us know you arrival and departure time, so we can have someone opening the house for you, before you arrive.

Housekeeping:
At you arrival, Reina will be waiting for you. Reina is our housekeeper; she will greet you and also make sure that on your departure everything is in order.
If you which to have her services for cleaning the house, do basic cooking or overall assist you in any manner, she charges $20.00 per day. Please pay her directly and in cash. Also, please be advised that Reina does not speak English.

Reina is from the neighboring town of La Guaira. Because she lives nearby, she can help you out setting up boat trips to the nearby islands, telling where to buy groceries, etc.

Laundry:If you need to get your laundry done, Reina may assist on that; she does it by hand. You should pay her directly her rates, which will on the amount of clothes. She does the laundry off premises. There is no dryer! so this part will depend on the weather.

Groceries:
The closest full supermarket is the El Rey or Supper Extra located in Sabanitas, which is about 1hour and 45 minutes from the property. However, nearby (less than 5 minutes away) there is a small local shop, where you can buy the very basics for you stay.
Remember, the property offers a full kitchen, therefore we suggest you buy as much as possible in Panama City and then just refill in on anything missing once you get to the property.
The main supermarkets in Panama are:
1. RibaSmith
2. El Rey
3. Super99
4. Super Extra ( now in Sabanitas)
For specialty food, your best bet in the City is Deli Gourmet, which has several locations.
Alcohol can be purchased on any supermarket; but if you don’t find what you are looking for, you can try: Bodega Mi Amiga or any of the WineStores.

Restaurants:
All restaurants nearby offer local food: Fresh seafood, coconut rice and plantains: We strongly recommend trying the Octopus with coconut rice and fried plantains, in Spanish: Pulpo en leche de coco, con arroz con coco y patacones.
You will find these restaurants near Portobello and in Isla Grande (the island in front of our house). We recommend Coco Plum (near Portobello).

Generalities:
Our house is sitting on top of a natural reef. If you walk around the area, you will also find some naturally formed pools. This area used to be part of Portobello’s National Park. It is very primitive and vernacular but you will love the colors!

Besides Cable TV, we do not have internet nor radios.

Although we have a few neighbors, the house is bit secluded, so nothing really is walking distance…unless you feel like exercising!

The water is a luxury in this area so please try not to waste it. We do not have hot water because it’s not been long since we have running water. We do have big reservoirs in case of shortage!. This is NOT drinkable water, so please buy your drinking water supplies.

Please replace anything you consume from our house, including food.

Enjoy you stay at our house and please let us hear your comments, good or bad, so we can improve your future stays.
