Property description

By the Sea Casitas is an amazing guest-house featuring three simple, traditional style individual casitas on the sea. These clean Casitas are painted in bright colors and sleep a total of 8 people (purple sleeps 4 with 4 twin beds, orange 2 in a double bed and yellow has a king sized bed). Fresh linens and towels are provided. There are 2 bathrooms and two outdoor showers with hot water. The main house has a charming living and dining area with a view to the sea for your cooking pleasure or just to hang out. There is also a large deck over the sea to enjoy the views, the sun and relax.

The casitas are paired with a main house over the water that is home to a shared living room and fully equipped kitchen for guests to use at their leisure. There are two outdoor showers with hot water that are spacious and clean as well as two bathroom sinks.

Hammocks on the over-the-water dock become a place to hang out and enjoy the north side of Isla Colón (the breezy side). Read your book, take a swim, or watch the tropical fish nibbling around the coral growing on the pier posts of the boathouse. The property has a local flavor in a nice neighborhood.

The property is within walking distance to Bocas Town, close to restaurants, groceries stores, dive shops, bike, boat rental and tours.

Accommodations for up to 8 guests. Minimum 3 night stay. $200 per night plus a 10% hotel tax and $60 cleaning fee per reservation. Christmas week, New Years week and Easter are $220 per night. No smoking inside any of the rooms. Please note that if you do not rent all three Casitas, what you do not rent will remain vacant.

A deposit of 50% is required to hold your reservation. You may cancel and get a 90% refund up to 30 days prior to the reservation date. We accept deposits by Paypal

Optional:
Laundry service is available for $5.00 per wash and dry

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: The two owners, Donna and Anne-Michelle have been friends for 35 years and business partners for almost as long. Originally from the East coast of the US, they lived in Boulder Colorado for many years and now both reside in Bocas del Toro, Panama as your hosts.

Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro:
After traveling together for many years to many different countries and looking for our perfect 'place in the sun', we chose Bocas del Toro Panama the ideal place to vacation and ultimately to live. It's laid back atmosphere and great community make it a home that we don't want to leave.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We both fell in love with this property because of its unique location. It is right on the water with palm trees swaying in the front, yet it is just a few minutes walking to the center of town.
