Bocas del Toro house description

Panama Fred's is ideally located just a short ten minute cab ride from the airport and town($2/pp) . Set in a private enclave of seven homes the property has extensive landscaping with beautiful gardens and lush palms all maintained by the on site care taker.
Nestled up against 100 Acres of Reforestation Land, Panama Fred's is a Birders Perch. The Back deck is almost 20 feet above the ground so you are literally at a birds eye view with nature.
Awake to Rails combing the backyard for an early breakfast, listen to flocks of Red Lored Amazon Parrots flying overhead as you sip your morning tea or relax with a cocktail at Happy Hour as they say 'creek, creek, itch it' returning to their nests. At dusk the treetops are filled with Flycatchers circling up to catch a snack. Sit and watch a Woodpecker do his thing or try to spot the Oropendolas as they swing upside down on a branch. Set your tripod up right on the covered deck and you will always be ready for that perfect snapshot. With over 700 species of birds in Bocas it truly is a Bird Lovers Paradise.
A day trip to Swan's Cay, aka Bird Island, and you will delight in seeing baby Boobies, so white and fluffy, along with magnificent Frigette Birds, Pelicans and Terns. It is one of the only know places that the stunning Red-Billed Tropic Birds come to nest. On a calm day be sure to hop in for a snorkel. Some of the most beautiful tropical fish we have seen in Bocas have been at Swan's Cay.
For those who want a peek at wildlife the Howler Monkeys often come right to the trees in our yard. Most often you will hear them in the distance as they travel through the nearby trees. Best of all you will always enjoy a breeze on the large covered deck because it has two overhead fans.
The house has cathedral ceilings, an airy open floor plan and a big covered deck that lend to its tropical feel. It is beautifully appointed with local handmade furnishings and artwork. Native hardwood floors throughout. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances in case you want to relax and cook in or heat up that Take-Out food you brought from town. A Weber gas grill is also located on the deck.
Panama Fred's is equipped with everything you'll need for a fabulous vacation. It is truly a world away from it all.
Easily able to comfortably accommodate two couples, each bedroom has an overhead fan and ample closet space. Although rarely needed the house also has air conditioning. All windows have screens.
A great spot for Family Reunions as the homes on either side are also available to rent, making it possible for groups of up to 12 to get together but also have some privacy. Ask about group rates.
Kick back and unwind at home or take a short cab ride to town and the opportunities are endless. Shop from the local craft merchants, pick up some fresh native vegetables and fruits, buy some local seafood, take a boat trip to see dolphins or birds, snorkel far away cays,rent a bike for a day or a week, try a kayak, rent a stand up paddle board, take a zip line tour or just enjoy the people watching at the park.
Dine out over the water or visit a 'locals' hangout. Every type of food awaits you and it is almost never a disappointment.
The beautiful Bluff Beach is just a short bike ride away. For those that do not want to bike, cabs can easily be called for service.
Our property manager, Denise, will meet you at the airport, take you for a quick grocery shop and then personally take you to your island retreat. She is also your on-island expert and can offer a variety of suggestions to help you make the most of your stay. She will also do the check out procedure with you, return your deposit and deliver you back to the airport.
Book early to avoid disappointment.
The perfect location for the perfect vacation...PANAMA FRED'S!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Originally from Ma and NY, we currently live on St. John, in the US Virgin Islands. We own and operate Pepper, a daysail snorkel business within the National Park. Planning to eventually spend our winters in Bocas but for now visiting as often as possible.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro:
                  While searching for something outside the hurricane zone we were drawn to Bocas del Toro at others suggestions. After one trip we were hooked. We love the laid back atmosphere in Bocas. The people are friendly and great, they are from all over the world and give Bocas quite an international feel. Bocas is what we imagine St. John was like 30 years ago. Primitive in all the right ways.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Relaxing on the large cool covered deck, the location is private but close to everything. The beautiful gardens. The variety of birds, flocks of green parrots, woodpeckers, too many to name. Howler monkeys traveling back and forth in the 100 acres of reforestation land right behind us. The sounds of nature literally at your back door.
