The house is located in Big Creek and is about 2 blocks from the beach and ocean. The beach across the street is great for swimming and sun tanning (tide and weather permitting). Great surfing is only a 5 minute bike ride away!! The house is a 5 minute taxi ride from downtown. In town, there are markets for food and beverages which can be enjoyed on the spacious deck!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in the chilly 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 vacation home purchase happen. We are most excited about having our children experience another culture when we are lucky enough to visit 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 renting this house to anyone who chooses to vacation here! We want everyone to love it as much as we do. We hope you will stay at our house and enjoy your dream vacation!

Why the Owner Chose Big Creek Village (Bocas del Toro Province, Panama):
This house is in the perfect location on the island. It's 2 blocks from the beach and only a short bike ride away to great surfing, restaurants 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 that works great at the house!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We have caretakers who live next door. They 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 get 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.
