About the owner: I am a monumental sculptor and Roni is a structural engineer. The pair of us designed and built this custom home. It all started brainstorming with a pad of paper and some local colored pencils!
Why the Owner Chose Bastimento, Panama:
We stumbled onto Bocas Del Toro, backpacking through central America: puddle jumper style. But once we landed, we didn't leave. The islands are breathtaking. The people are healthy, fun and speak multiple languages fluently; including English, Spanish, Guari Guari, and Local tribal languages too. Bastimentos Island is calm, local, and there are no cars! It is paradise, plain and simple.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We designed and built this unique house. It is a family style open floor plan with handmade moveable privacy screens throughout. The entire front of the home is a glass rotating wall overlooking the ocean. We even designed and built most of the furniture in the home from scratch!
