Additional / optional maid services (apart from daily cleaning) such as cooking and washing the dishes for you are NOT INCLUDED in the rental price and could be agreed with the maid in person during your stay paying modest ADDITIONAL GRATITUDES to the maid in-person and only cash. However, this applies only if you wish to use the additional services of the maid and is of course optional.
Interaction with guests
If you have any questions, feel free to send me an email, call me, or you can always ask the maid. I am not around in the island while you are renting the house, but I am only a phone call, or email away.
Other things to note
Free transport is included in the rental price (minimum stay 2 nights) from the ferry dock in Contadora or Contadora airport to the house.
Getting to Contadora Island:
The island is easily reachable from Panama City through ferry (2 hours and 30 minutes). There are two ferry companies operating ferries to Contadora Island. Ferry Las Perlas which costs $95 round trip per adult / $57 one way per adult, and Sea Las Perlas which costs $90 round trip and $45 one way per adult.
Contadora Island can be reached by airplane (20 minute flight and they have two flights a day) from Panama City with Air Panama and it's about $80.00 round trip/return for an adult.
You can also reach Contadora Island by helicopter with Heli-Ancon. I'm not sure of the prices, but you can send them an email and enquire.
Estimated Helicopter Flight Times: 1 hour 40 min
We would be glad to help you out with any suggestions / recommendations on what to do on the Island (excursions etc.) and / or any questions you may have regarding your stay on Contadora Island!
There is a permanent medical clinic on the island providing basic medical needs but in case of severe accidents/medical attention you will need to alert the Panamanian authorities who will send a helicopter/airplane to the island to pick up the injured/affected person.
No extra non-paying guests or parties are allowed in the property without prior permission from us. If you do this, you will be asked to leave without a possibility of a refund.
Eating areas / Storing food
You are more than welcome to use the kitchen to cook and the dining table in the terrace to eat as long as you clean up after yourself. Please be aware we do not provide oil, or spices to cook other than salt and pepper (so you need to bring your own when you come). You are also welcome to use the fridge and freezer for your groceries, but please treat it with care (no slamming fridge doors etc) because if anything breaks or gets damaged, it will be deducted from your deposit. Thank you.
Please wash all the dishes and pans after you’ve finished using them and leave them in the drying rack in the kitchen. The maid will do general cleaning in the house, but not do everything for you all the time, unless you pay her an additional fee.
Checking out / Keys
Check out is at 11:00 AM usually (but I can be a bit flexible depending if I have another rental straight after yours or not). When you leave, please make sure the house is not left alone and the maid is there.
Please under no circumstances, leave the house unattended when you leave. If you are unsure, don’t be afraid to text us or ask us how to do it.
Please report any damage occasioned by yourself in the house immediately to the maid.
Please feel at home, we want you to leave thinking 'What a great idea Airbnb is - I will never stay in a hotel again!’ so if you are unsure about anything during your stay, don’t be afraid to just give me a call or message me.
Enjoy your stay!
