Boca del Drago house description

CARIBBEAN BEACHFRONT HOUSE FOR RENT

This pristine, 3000 sq. ft., 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom house is the perfect place to take your next vacation. The Mediterranean home has a master bedroom with king sized bed and private bathroom, and a second bedroom with two double beds. The house sleeps six comfortably and features a covered porch that extends around the entire house. The front porch is home to a beautiful and large wood table (seats 10), hammocks and other comfortable seating options. It’s the perfect place to sit back and relax to enjoy the view, play games, read a book, and have big dinners.

The house is located on property in Boca del Drago, 45 minutes out of the town of Bocas del Toro on Isla Colon in Panama. The house looks over 600 feet of very private beachfront and a direct view of Isla Pajaro or “Bird Island” (a bird sanctuary with Booby nesting grounds and Tropix birds). The beach is completely private and is great for laying out, swimming and snorkeling.(seasonal) There are a few hammocks by the beach for optimal relaxation. The rest of the property is on 7 hectares of beautiful land, covered with native flowers and fruit trees.

Beyond the beautiful view and great beach – there is much to do and see in this private location. Howler monkeys, sloths, parrots, and hummingbirds are among the animals that live and play near the house. Additionally, the surrounding area provides ample opportunity for great jungle hikes, long beach walks (where you will see starfish), kayaking, snorkeling, bird-watching and horse back riding. The best seafood restaurant on Bocas del Toro is only a 10 minute drive away – or if you are feeling adventurous – a 40+ minute walk away.

It the perfect spot for those looking for rest and relaxation, nature and solitude, and/or a private vacation with family and/or friends.
Because it is about 45 minutes away from Bocas town – this home is probably not the best vacation spot for those looking to be entertained by the Bocas nightlife. Additionally, the house is entirely “green.” It uses sun and rain for energy and water and we may only ask you to use electricity responsibly when energy is low. We usually do not use blow dryers, curling irons or anything with a heating coil, as they use large amounts of energy.
As a side note: We are happy to have watched over 100 Baby Turtles hatch at our beach November and December of 2009 and again in August of 2010 and four more nests in 2011. At the larger Playa Largarto Beach we were able to watch Leatherbacks laying eggs and later Baby turtles hatching. Ask us for pictures!

Side notes:
(1) The owner and two friendly dogs live on the premises, in the Studio apartment above the house ( separate units, same house) The dogs do like to visit with our guests. We are here to assist you.
We have some very spotty internet service available now upstairs.
You can also enjoy a deep tissue or relaxation massage, myofacial releases, right here at the house at only $50 per hour.
50% down is required to secure your reservation 50% at your arrival, as well as a $200 security deposit and $50 Cleaning Fee
