                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2006

                      About the owner: We live in the blustery cold state of Minnesota, USA and on vacation, we absolutely fell in love with Bocas. Once there, we never wanted to leave! After we saw this house and the location, we saved up and made our dream purchase happen. We are most excited about having our children immersed in another culture while enjoying all there is to do in Bocas. We also can't wait for our friends and family to stay in the house and be woken up by howler monkeys! Nothing would make us happier than sharing this house and beautiful area with anyone who chooses to vacation here! We want everyone to love it as much as we do. We hope you will stay with us and enjoy your dream vacation!

                      Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro:
                      This house is in the perfect location on the island. It's across the street from the beach and only a bike ride away from great surfing and Bocas town. As for the property, it has a beautiful deck, beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife and vegetation. Also, it's an extremely safe area, as is the entire island. Also, we have wireless internet and 2 pedal bikes available for rent!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have a caretaker Javier, who lives next door. He can set up fishing trips, cave tours, snorkeling, whatever you wish to do! Staying with us, you get to enjoy the large, open deck. You also the sites and sounds of monkeys and birds in the jungle in the backyard. This house is in the best location on the island, near the beach and surf spots yet it is close enough to town but far enough to be quiet and private.
