Year Purchased: 1994
About the owner: Peter Kent, arrived in Bocas Del Toro, Panama in 1993, one of the first foreigners to settle in the area. Originally from England, he has lived in Spain, France, Australia, New Zealand, the United States and Costa Rica, on top of many years spent traveling the world. Throughout his life, he worked on a wide range of international construction projects, gaining experience. Peter has designed, developed and constructed numerous homes throughout the Bocas Del Toro Islands. His construction experience allows him to navigate the challenging development process of Panama, while his keen eye results in inspirational designs for each of the unique homes. Andrea Kent is originally from Northern California, but lived in Costa Rica as a teenager. Her parents own a Resort in Costa Rica, they traveled to Bocas and met Peter, became good friends and ten years later met their daughter Andrea (for the first time). Fell in love, were married and now enjoy their son Orion. The Interior Designer graduated from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, California and has since applied her unique creative talents to both commercial and residential design projects, domestically and abroad. After founding Hawking Design Group, she became a reoccurring featured designer on the Home and Garden Television Network. The Kentways homes, including Vista Azul Lodge, benefit from Andrea's ability to marry traditional Caribbean style with more contemporary design and conveniences. Not a single design element goes untouched, resulting in inspired homes, built in the islands of Bocas Del Toro.
Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro Province, Panama:
Peter bought the 100 acre property back in '94, 'I knew where I would eventually build my residence. I waited for my soul partner to cross my path so as to build our dream home together but the time was not yet. So I started to build, when the interior stage was upon me, I met my wife who turned out to be an interior designer'.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The spectacular setting of the Lodge with the Caribbean sea at the doorstep and the jungle at the back door gives this property a uniqueness, plus the Lodge is just a five minute boat ride to the charming, vibrant town of Bocas. It would take six months to explore and experience the islands fully. With a multitude of local activities to keep your stay entertaining. With also access to spa treatments, a getaway for rejuvenation, away from the stress of work and home.
