Overview

About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2.5 Baths, (6 Adults and 2 Children Max)

The Pearl Islands are a collection of 200 islands and atolls situated just 40 miles off the coast of Panama City. Our villa is located on the beautiful island of Contadora. Serviced twice a day by Panama's domestic airline, Air Panama, as well as daily ferry service from Panama City with Sea Las Perlas or Ferry Las Perlas, it is an tropical paradise. Incredible diving, snorkelling, fishing, whale watching and island exploration await visitors to this sleepy island haven. The same islands which have been the home to episodes of Survivor from countries all over the world, it is a true island experience off the beaten path.

Our villa is newly constructed and contains all the modern amenities. Situated atop a hill above Galeon Beach, it is just minutes from our villa to this incredible beach. Shopping, dining, markets and night life are also minutes from our front door. The people of Contadora are extremely friendly and within days you will feel like a local. The island is quiet and except for major holidays, you will feel like you have the island to yourselves.

Great villa escape on Contadora

  • 5 of 5

We came to Contadora for the annual skydiving event. Checking in was easy with Piero and Julio, they also rented us golf carts for the entire stay. The villa was very clean and air conditioning was a major bonus. The Villa is just above the main Galeon Beach where the ferrys drop off and pick up. There are stores and restaurants easily within walking distance, along with Playa Larga, the largest beach on the island. To get to the other side of the Island definitely requires a golf cart. However it is well worth the investment. There a numerous beaches and places to explore, a secluded hotel with a beachfront bar, and Piero's restaurant, Casa Tortuga, one of the nicest places to dine on the island. Chris was easy to communicate with and overall our expectations were exceeded. Will defnintely return!

Villa stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The villa was perfect for all 6 of us. The pool is steps away and the beach is also very close. The owner and manager are friendly and helpful. I would recommend the villa to all my friends. So relaxing and the snorkeling was amazing.

Great place for a family vacation on Contadora

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week on this tropical island paradise. Our four children and I celebrated my wife's 50th birthday here. The villa is in a perfect location, and it's in excellent condition. The manager and owner were very responsive to our requests and questions. The German neighbors were also very kind and helpful, and it was a nice coincidence for my German wife.

Great Condo on Contadora

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th stay in these condos and 2nd in this one. We had to upsize to this 3 br unit so our group could stay together. The owners were very easy to communicate with by phone, text and email. This unit is well maintained and equipped. All a/c's , tv and wi-fi internet worked great. It's located next to the pool so access to an outdoor shower for rinsing after a day in the ocean then cooling off in the pool is very convenient. We had a great experience here, will return and highly recommend!

Very Spacious, perfect location Villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the villa recently. There is enough room for everyone! The location is great as it is just above Geralds (now called perla real restuarant. Cris was great to work with. The pool was also refreshing after long days at the beaches. Also we did not have any problems with electricity, hot water, etc. All was great. We definitely will come again. Piero and other local staff know this villa well, and were very accomodating. We also did a fishing trip with snorkeling and beach relaxation with Pedro. He was great. His boat is slightly bigger than the pongas and was perfect for fishing. We came back and grilled our fish on the grill with the some sides. The lady from the welcome center also help us a bunch by delivering breakfast and taking us to beaches if we wanted to. We have been the the island several times, and never knew this service was available. Thank you Chris for letting us know this!! You were great at responding to our questions. Fast and Responsive. Please thank all your contacts on the island too.
