About the Property
4 Bedrooms 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8 Built Over-The-Water Situated On 3 Lush Acres
The villa is situated along a mile long coral reef approx. 20 minutes by boat from Bocas town/airport and only 30 miles from the Costa Rica border.
Our goal is to offer guests an intimate experience with nature where you can relax in comfort while at the same time minimizing the impact on the environment.
Casa del Mar was construction in 2012 of local natural building materials offered by the rich resources of the region. The result is a close to nature ambiance. From you're private 44 foot terrace, you will be able to observe impressive sunsets interrupted only by frolicking dolphins.
Feel immersed in the sounds of nature while lounging on the terrace sipping a drink, watching exotic birds in the thatched jungle tree house casita or soaking in the terrazoo bathtub while gazing towards the jungle after snorkelling in the calm protected waters in front of the villa.
You can rent the villa and be entirely independent or you can rent it with optional extras such as a cook (with or without shopping service) masseuse, boat captain/tour guide and housekeeper.
The Villa is situated on 3 lush acres of private jungle with a thatched tree house casita to enjoy birds and wildlife (including the resident 3 toed sloth) or experience jungle living. You will have direct access to miles of great hiking trails by lagoons, on top of mountains, through orchards and secret look outs.
The villa itself has 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. There is an separate outdoor bathhouse located on land behind the villa. There is an authentic tree house casita at the back of the property in the jungle (approx. 100yards from the villa) The tree house does not have water or power but lanterns are provided and guests sleeping in the tree house will have exclusive use of the outdoor bathhouse which includes a big walk-in shower, separate toilet with double vanity, gear storage and laundry.
All 4 bedrooms have queen beds. In the villa, the living room & dining room has a 23 foot soaring cathedral ceiling along with a glass floor under the coffee table to view sea life while you sip you're coffee in the morning.
The villa features a 44ft almendro hardwood deck with inviting hammocks and lounge chairs, outdoor dining as well as an hot outdoor shower. A gentil caribbean breeze acts as the perfect climate control however there are eight ceiling fans throughout the villa and outdoor covered decking as well as access to additional free standing fans in the bedrooms.
The well stocked open plan kitchen features a granite countertop, stainless steel appliances and custom cabinetry.
There is unlimited free use of 2 touring stand-up paddle boards, 2 boogie boards, 1 double kayak, 2 single kayaks (1 small, 1 medium) 2 locally made wooden dugout canoes and a large assortment of snorkelling gear at the villa for you're use. There are plenty of beach towels and a selection of inflatable floaties all available for guests to use.

Don't miss the opportunity to paddleboard or Kayak out into the Bay at first light and be amongst the dolphin during there morning feed. A truly magical experience.
