Mango Bay is like arriving at Jurassic Park. We are on a 400 acre nature preserve, If you like to see Dolphins, eagles, parrots, monkeys & catch & eat fresh fish, then you will love it here. This is nothing like a Mexican resort. This is natural Panama, no discos or gambling. But we do have fantastic sunrises & calm water, perfect for paddling or water skiing. We give our guests great service (see our 5 star reviews) & have off site managers who just moved from Florida & a knowledgeable local boat captain on site. We can arrange for all your meals to be prepared & we have at least 15 different day trips that you can embark on. From several fishing & island trips to hidden canyons & waterfalls. zip lining & rafting, guided car drive & a fantastic coffee tour., We can even get you to the highest spot in Panama at sunrise!
The villa is comprised of three 800 foot Steel, Teak & Bamboo platforms. Smaller parties need just rent one of the pavilions for the sleeping accommodations. Each of the rooms has an incredible view, as the walls are glass. The first room has 2 sets of bunk beds, end table & lamp. It also has a large armoire for clothing. The second room on the same platform has a nice queen bed, cool hardwood chair, armoire & two end tables with lamps. Both rooms are 200 square feet each. They share a bathroom right beside the rooms & it has a huge outdoor shower. The master is on its own 800 foot platform & has an attached 3 room master bath & its own covered porch with teak deck furniture. This room has a king bed, armoire, desk for your laptop, two end tables, chest & another ornamental cabinet.
The home has a Bali theme, furniture is also that theme & so is the thatch covered bamboo post & beam roof system. This 60 foot long roof covers the villa's three 40 foot long pavilions & the bodega which houses the laundry room, sporting equipment & the off grid power system. Yes, we have a large array of solar panels & a new large set of batteries to store the power of the sun in Panama. There is a back of generator for cloudy days.The walls are glass, which will give you the feeling of living in the jungle, but of course you have all the conveniences. AC in every room, high speed internet, Netflix's & crushed ice.
We are just making out 2 bedroom cottage available to rent to compliment the big villa or it could be rented on it's own. It also features a 240 foot covered veranda & a large table for dining. It has a convection oven, large fridge, 3 burner stove top, induction element & a barbecue on the large veranda.
There is a deep freeze in the attached boat garage for putting your catch of the day. Each room has an over head fan & we are installing ac this November. The cottage has Exterior Insulated foam system, acrylic stucco. Which means it is well insulated. The windows are dual pane, crank style which is also unlike what you usually find in Panama. It has a high vaulted ceiling. The kitchen is good sized with all the utensils , pans & a dining table for 4 inside.
The pier is just 50 feet in front & at high tide, we often just pull the boat out behind the place. Then walk onto our cement boat ramp that comes up behind the attached boat garage. So it is ideal for a small group of fishermen. It may also be used for an especially large group, or if there are over 6 men & they do not want to sleep in the same bed as another one of the group members.
We have our new high efficiency Perkins diesel generator. To ensure there is always a way to keep the rooms cool at night. We do not intend for our guests to stay in their rooms all day under the AC. That is NOT possible in an off grid environment. Not with out running a fossil fuel generator 24 hours a day. But we want to ensure guests a comfortable nights sleep.
The property was inhabited years ago, but was never logged off. So it has incredible trees, some fruit bearing, (Mango, Avocado, lime, coconut, bananas, pineapples & Plantains to name a few. View birds & monkeys for a truly tropical ambiance. The calm, warm waters are accessed by our 150 foot long pier. It is great to go for a swim, paddle from or to water ski off of. Access to all the fishing in the bay & out into the Hannibal bank is a must. One of our boats can get you right into the marina at Petragal in about 40 minutes. Petragal is just 4 minutes from the airport & only 10 minutes from the city of David. The port of Chorcha is only a 12 minute boat ride to this landing spot. They just paved the road there & that cuts the time to town down to just over 20 minutes. I just love all these infrastructure projects being completed in Panama!!
