The space

Tropical "outside in" house designed by Arq. Patrick Dillon is situated in historic Gamboa, half way up the Panama Canal. Built of plantation teak and local upcycled wood. Beautiful modern kitchen, four bathrooms, kids area, large decks, swimming pool, balcony and views. Huge louvered doors open up onto two large teak decks which are excellent for entertaining. House comes complete with gas BBQ, 10 meter swimming pool for cooling off from the tropical heat.

Local things to do and amenities:
You are a ten minute walk to the famous birding mecca, Pipeline Road. Fifteen minute walk to Gamboa Resort lookout tower. 10 minute walk to public dock where there are boat rentals for tours of the Gatun Lake or Rio Chagras for bass fishing. Access to community tennis courts with an international tennis pro. Ping Pong and Pool table in kids area. Morning and evening fly overs of Yellow Lord parrots.

Gamboa is located exactly half way up the Panama Canal, which puts it 1 hours drive from either the Pacific or the Atlantic coast. We are a unique community of international professionals, locals and Smithsonian scientist. I can also help with aspects of your travel plans if you need more assistance.

The house is amazing architecturally. The master bedroom is great. The kitchen is amazing. For the other rooms, couples are not ideal as they are small. Since you are in the rainforest and we had a lot of rain, it was a bit mildewy.
