La Isla Contadora
La Isla Contadora
Nestled along a small cove on the south side of the gorgeous Contadora Island, this spectacular, five-bedroom home boasts 7000 square feet of oceanfront views and tropical luxury. With sweeping, panoramic views of the white, sandy shores of Playa Cacique, your dreams will become reality at this picturesque slice of paradise.
As you step into the entryway, you’ll be struck by the classic, alluring décor, made up of authentic art pieces and vibrant pops of color that brighten up each room and bring a historical feel to the property. Polished, cool tile flooring extends throughout each room, and beautifully rustic wooden finishes complete the exotic aesthetic. Natural light streams in through large windows, bathing the entire main floor in a soft glow so you can enjoy the warmth of the sun no matter where you are. After long days on the beach, spend lazy afternoons lounging on one of the soft, plush couches in the main living space, where you’ll find plenty of room to gather with the whole family.
The well-appointed kitchen sits nestled against an earthy, stone wall, and offers state of the art appliances will help you cook your meals to perfection each night. Grab a quick breakfast or enjoy a chilled glass of wine at the spacious breakfast bar, and when it’s time for dinner, you’ve got a few dining options to take advantage of. Take your meals indoors at either one of the sleek, wooden dining tables, or head outside to dine while overlooking the glistening waters of the ocean.
This home offers five excellent bedrooms, including a master suite that offers exclusive access to a private deck, complete with two lounge chairs and perfect for a secluded nightcap before bed. The master offers a lavish, king-sized bed and access to a private attached bath. The next two bedrooms offer queen-sized beds, and the next has an equally comfortable full-sized bed. The kids will love the last bathroom, outfitted with two sets of bright, colorful bunk beds and more than enough space to play, creating the perfect set up for a slumber party every night! Each room offers smooth, tile flooring and is decorated in beach-themed, vibrant colors that you’ll adore.
The true crowning jewel of this oceanfront gem has to be the fantastic outdoor living space, situated overlooking the pristine beaches of Playa Cacique. You’ll have access to a spacious, shaded lanai, complete with hammocks, where you can gently sway in the breeze during a leisurely afternoon nap. If you need to beat the heat, take a quick dip in the refreshing waters of your private infinity pool, and rest on the edge, gazing out onto the lush vegetation and the vast, turquoise waters of the ocean. The steps leading down from your deck take you directly to the sand and surf. Take advantage of your amazing location and spend your days basking in the sun, or enjoying any number of activities in the calm, clear water.

What a wonderful home with comfortable seating areas all over including indoors and outdoors and one of the best location on the best beach on the island. The layout is great with 4 bedrooms,, 2 with great decks, and 1 bedroom downstairs with bunks for kids was perfect and gave us all ample privacy. The mud room has a great big ice fridge and water cooler and extra bathrooms which was handy for ducking into from the outside. There is little outdoor shower that was handy as well. The patio has a built in grill and sinks and at least 4 seating areas - all over the sea! Many people thought we were at a hotel in seeing our pictures as the deck is so massive with unparellelled views! Christian, the owner, was a gracious owner navigating all of our logistics and requests and even making sure we got all groceries arranged and stocked for the week. The beautiful home has an infinity pool that overlooks the beach and ocean and the steps lead directly down to the soft, white sandy beach that you can walk down to get to the restaurant at small hotel that has both a beach bar and restaurant. Great for a convenient breakfast, lunch or dinner. A short golf cart ride away are any and all restaurants you could need. Our favorite was an Italian restaurant with fantastic ambience, thin crust pizza and wonderful pasta. The relaxing week at this charming island was wonderful to celebrate our in-laws 50th wedding anniversary! Getting to and from Panama City is very easy and some took flights and some took ferries. ”

Our family of 9 had a fabulous vacation staying at Third Home exchange Isla Contadora. We celebrated the Christmas holidays in this exceptional home situated on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and neighboring islands. The infinity pool and it's surrounding umbrella tables, chairs, and hammocks made it easy to enjoy the outdoors. The home is spacious and beautifully decorated. The four upper level suites all featured private baths and air conditioning. We appreciated the help of the staff, Juan and Carolina. The homeowners, Christian and Frank, connected us with Adrienne, who lives on the island. She was an extremely valuable resource, checking in with us daily, helping make dinner reservations, ferry pickup and arranging a snorkel/dive boat. We spent 4 days snorkeling and diving with Guillermo on Coral Dreams. He took us to the most amazing beaches and areas to explore underwater. We would highly recommend staying at Isla Contadora for a family vacation! Susan M and family Sent from my iPhone”
