Inspiring Experiences: Panama and CaliforniaJanuary 9, 2019 • By THIRDHOME
THIRDHOME Exchange members have recently returned from La Isla Contadora, Panama, and Bolinas, California. Keep reading to learn about their THIRDHOME experience.
Looking for a remote island escape? Look no further than Isla Contadora, one of the most beautiful islands in the Pearl Island archipelago. Only a short flight from Panama City, this tucked-away island is home to about 100 full-time residents. With so few people and plenty of gorgeous beachfront, this property on Isla Contadora is perfect for a peaceful family escape, and can sleep up to 14 people. Lounge in the infinity pool walk down to Playa Cacigue for a day of lounging in paradise. Visit during whale migration season and you might catch a humpback calling on the horizon. The area is also perfect for snorkeling and scuba diving expeditions.
THIRDHOME member Susan says, “Our family of 9 had a fabulous vacation staying at the THIRDHOME Exchange property, 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 its surrounding umbrella tables, chairs, and hammocks made it easy to enjoy the outdoors…We would highly recommend staying at Isla Contadora for a family vacation!” click here to read more of Susan’s review.
A short drive northwest of San Francisco, past the Golden Gate Bridge, you’ll come upon Bolinas Lagoon, a tidal estuary separated from the waters of Bolinas Bay by a thin strip of beach. This property has sweeping panoramic views of the conservation land that surround the lagoon giving you a first-row seat to the natural wonders of this tidal preserve, known for its unique populations of rare waterfowl. Featuring plenty of deck space and an outdoor dining area, you’ll be able to make the most of the wetland views during your stay. Inside you’ll find 3-bedrooms, contemporary living spaces and a modern and well-equipped kitchen. If you’re looking for a peaceful nature escape near the San Francisco Bay Area, this home is for you.
THIRDHOME member Francisca says, “If you have had a hectic period and want a breather, this is definitely the place. The home, with its large view windows and glass doors, affords a panoramic view of the surrounding hills and the lagoon with its wildlife, (and) is built on supports right over the wetlands. It has an open floor plan which leads to a large deck and is well furnished.” click here to read more of Francisca’s review.
