Property description

Casa de K Beach House is a bright, spacious, and airy 2000+ sq ft home built on a 1/2 acre. It is the perfect home for large or small groups (accommodates up to 10 people). On the main floor (2nd level) there is a Master Suite (with a/c, balcony access, ocean view and a private bathroom), a Junior Suite (with a/c, jungle views and a shared bathroom), and a loft (with two double beds and a shared bathroom). The ground floor (1st level) has two rooms each with a set of bunk beds and a bathroom. There is hot water available throughout the house. There is a large storage area for all your gear, as well as washer and dryer.

The house offers a relaxing living area with plenty of sitting room for all, as well as a large balcony with majestic ocean and island views. There is also a small balcony in the back to enjoy the alluring jungle scene. While sitting on the balconies, one can be serenaded by the ocean waves and jungle noises (birds, howler monkeys, tree frogs, etc). The balconies are perfect spots for enjoying the surrounding landscape filled with tropical foliage (plants, flowers and fruit trees) which draws a variety of tropical birds.

The house is located in a peaceful setting just outside of town, and is close enough to easily enjoy the local charm of Bocas Town. There are three full service restaurants close to the house, and many more just minutes away by taxi. It is a pleasant, culture immersing 45-60 minute walk to the center of Bocas Town.

This home offers a spacious, comfortable and relaxing location to hang out, but also provides a secure home base while you explore all the area has to offer - exploring Isla Colon and surrounding islands: hiking, swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, taking a catamaran tour, snorkeling/diving, sampling local cuisine, shopping, taking Spanish lessons, going on a tour of the Botanical Garden, viewing wildlife, fishing, horseback riding, looking for shells, etc.

Upon arrival in Bocas del Toro, property management staff can help arrange taxis for transportation and grocery shopping, as well as tours, and any other services you may be interested in.

This house is perfect for those who want to kick back and relax in a place where the untouched tropical rain forest meets the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean!

There is a surf break in front of the house (TigerTail), as well as several others within walking distance (Paunch, Dumpers, Bluff) from the house. If one was staying in town, it would require a 3 mile walk, a taxi or water taxi to bring you out to these breaks. This is a HUGE advantage to surfers! (direct assessment of swell, convenient access, secure storage area for your boards) These breaks are the most popular surfing spots in Bocas. This is an ideal location for folks hoping to surf during your visit to Bocas del Toro. This is one of the few locations in Bocas where transportation is not required to access surf breaks.

To Bird Watchers - some of the birds seen at this property are the Toucan, Montezuma Oropendola, Kiskadee, etc.

Howler monkeys can be seen and heard at the house.

There is a Pack and Play for families with an infant/toddler

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2009

About: Hola! My name is Kristin Bacon. I am a 16 year Alaskan resident who needs her soul kissed by the tropical sun and surf on a regular basis. I instantly felt as though I was at my second 'home' when I arrived to Bocas del Toro the first time. Currently, I own a pediatric therapy business in Alaska, as well as a sled dog kennel. For me, Bocas Town and this house offer the right combination of simplicity, relaxation, nature, culture and adventure.

Why Bocas del Toro:
I chose this property because of its peaceful location and quality construction, as well as the sound/view of the ocean waves and easy access to surfing. These features made this property ideal to me. I also love the wildlife that can be seen and heard around the house.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the tranquility this home offers!! Casa de K's private location allows me to simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, tropical foliage and variety of wildlife. And, as a surfer this property is hard to beat. Additionally, there is easy access to all that Bocas has to offer -- cultural diversity, water sports, many restaurants, shopping, adventures, Spanish classes, yoga, organized tours, etc.
