About the property

Bedrooms 2, Bathrooms 2, Sleeps 4

Vacation like royalty in Panama, Central America, at this 2-bed, 2 bath Casa Bonita condo.

Panoramas of the ocean/ canal view with ships moving toward the entrance of the canal, jungle, and mountains fill the floor-to-ceiling windows and take your breath away from three sides. Step out onto your private oceanfront balcony and add sea breezes to the 270-degree views. We provide a bottle of wine, outdoor seating area, and the best vantage point for sunrise in all of Panama.

Sleeping arrangements include a king bedroom suite, a queen bedroom for a total of 4. Everything in our condo is brand new and ready for its first guests!


Casa Bonita shares all the resort amenities (and stunning Greek architecture) of its opulent next-door neighbor: The Westin Playa Bonita Resort. The Westin is the only resort of its kind this close to downtown Panama City…just 15 minutes by car.

With access to both Casa Bonita and Westin Pearl Club amenities, your vacation will indulge you completely. Perks include:

• Oceanfront swimming pools• Rooftop deck with hot tub and city skyline views• Saunas• Fitness Centers (at Casa Bonita & the Westin)• Game room with pool table, ping pong, card table and more• Grocery and restaurant delivery• Sensory Spa at the Westin• Private parking spot• Free use of kayaks and paddleboards• Casa Bonita oceanfront cookout area with gas grills (additional charge may apply).

Families, your kids will love it here, too! Casa Bonita features a rooftop playground area with lounge chairs for the adults and stunning views of the mountains.

Inside the condo, we provide everything you need, including paper towels, toilet paper, coffee, coffee filters, bottles of water, cooking supplies (including salt & pepper and cooking oils), linens, and more. There’s also an in-unit washer and dryer.


Don’t confuse Panama with Panama City Beach, Florida! Panama City, Panama is a place unlike any other, attracting families, honeymooners, backpackers and luxury travelers alike. Find serene sand beaches, tropical rainforests and jungles, coastal mountains and a vibrant downtown.

Go fishing…or purchase fresh fish from a fisherman just docking with his day’s catch. Lie on the sand beach outside your condo (there is a blissful lack of jet skis or motorized boats here on our beaches!). Zipline across the rainforest canopy. Take a dip in the oceanfront pool. Slip into the Casa Bonita rooftop hot tub at nighttime and watch the skyline glitter.

Or head across the Bridge of the Americas to explore Panama City…Playa Bonita and Casa Bonita are the only resort accommodations this close to downtown (and also the closest to the airport).

In short, this is a luxurious, convenient place—offering a vacation experience as simple or as extravagant and adventurous as you want it to be!

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you have, or to book your upcoming stay. We’re ready to help give you the vacation of a lifetime here in Panama!

About Mitzi

I spend a lot of time traveling the world. And in the end, it's Panama that offers me everything I seek in terms of real estate investing and lifestyle!

With a booming economy (GDP is 9-10% year after year, compared to the US's very low GDP, great retirement benefits, a government that encourages economic growth through new businesses, and modern infrastructure, it's smart to do business in Panama. Plus, Panama has minimal crime compared to even Atlanta, GA, where I live some parts of the year.

Even better, Panama has great people who are proud of their country and their heritage and are wonderful hosts to travelers. Throw in a great international airport (Tocumen: PTY), easy affordable access to car rentals at the airport, and jaw-dropping sights like the beach, the jungle, The CANAL, the Downtown City including Old Towne, a growing economy with minimal unemployment, construction and growth everywhere... and you have a place with a strong pulse. The strong pulse of a country that is preparing itself and it's people for the future!

Why Mitzi chose Panama

Interested in buying a property in Panama, then ask us anything and we can help you get a property that fits your needs whether it is for retirement, work related or vacationing and investment purposes.

What makes this apartment unique

Very Nice Surprise

  • 4 of 5

Worked very well for three guys with couch converting to bed. Everything we needed including large HD TV for super bowl and access to resort with pools and beach. Rooftop pool also very nice and view of ships waiting for canal outstanding. Only issue was chairs on balcony need new sling material to be usable.

Awesome Location!

  • 5 of 5

What a terrific location for a family vacation. The condo was in great condition with a terrific view. The top floor of the building looks out over VeraCruz, the Panama Canal and Panama City. The ocean was so warm we cooled off in the pooll!

Having access to the Westin was awesome as we ate at three of the restaurants and had a great pool side service. We will definitely go back.

Nice Place but never returned security deposit, even after repeated assurances

  • 3 of 5

Condo is well appointed and in great condition. On-site staff were quite accommodating. We had a very nice stay. Regrettably, the owner has yet to return the security deposit after two months, even after several contacts and assurances that it was to be processed. That left a sour taste. If you rent, just consider that this may occur and factor it into the rental cost. If the refund ever materializes, I will update this review.

Perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect spot to stay near the city to enjoy some beach time and pool time after exploring the city. All major city attractions are within 15 minutes drive. Drew and Evie are so responsive and accommodating. The apartment is nicely appointed with a nice bottle of wine waiting for you. It even has a Xbox! Kids loved that! The building and hotel staff are super friendly and helpful. Kids loved to have access to 8 pools!!! The views from the apartment are lovely. You see some ocean with ships approaching the canal, and the wonderful jungle with amazing birds and wildlife. We did not see the sloths, but we knew they were there someplace. Can't force nature to cooperate with you. :) truly enjoyed our stay here. You will not be disappointed. I highly recommend to use The Gamboa tours in the hotel for the day activities. We missed that opportunity. We tried to do some activities on our own, and it was just frustrating to navigate on our own. Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute tour was a bust. Unless you just want to get it off your bucket list, do not expect to see or learn a lot from their guides. Do your own research before you go. Panama Canal never disappoints and Casco Viejo never disappoints. :) both are close to the apartment without having to hassle with much traffic. Amador is also close by and the Biodiversity Museum is also there. Forget the Mercado del Marisco, and have some good fish and langostinos at Karimar 3 minutes from the Westin facilities. Overall, perfect stay, perfect apartment, perfect wifi (as per my kids), and perfect service. Thanks, Drew and Evie.

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing condo with awesome amenities. We are glad we picked this location. Drew sent us a lot of useful information to make our trip successful. And Genevieve, who is the on site manager assisted us to a great clinic when our grand baby became ill. We loved sitting on the deck and looking out at the ships waiting to enter the canal. The kitchen is well stocked and everything is very comfortable. I have travelled extensively and always book vrbo. And this was definitely an A+. Thanks Drew and Evie
