Overview

About the property

Deluxe Waterfront 3 Bedroom, 2 Bath Eco-Home on Caribbean Sea, Private Boat Dock

La Casa Blanca is a deluxe home situated directly on the Caribbean Sea. This ecologically sustainable home is beautifully set up to feel like you are living in oneness and simplicity with nature. The wide wrap around veranda looks out to the Sea and is a favorite place to have your coffee, breakfast, relax in the hammock or even do a yoga session. The cooling Caribbean breezes are always circulating through the open home layout.

La Casa Blanca has 2 queen private bedrooms and a mezzanine level sleeping loft accessed by a beautiful spiral staircase. In the loft, there is an additional queen bed and 2 twin beds. Due to the eco-sustainability features, occupancy is limited to 4 adults and 2 children max. The kitchen is an open concept galley style with views to the Caribbean while you are cooking or washing up. The house was been upgraded by the new owner in April 2015, including the furniture, linens and bath accessories, giving a more luxurious feel to the home. Our Caretaker is right next door and our Property Manager is in Bocas Town; both will be available to help make your vacation memorable!

La Casa Blanca will give you the experience of living in an ecologically sustainable environment. With its own private boat dock, you are always able to meet a water taxi or be picked up personally by a tour company without going into Bocas Town. There is swimming and snorkeling directly off the dock at La Casa Blanca, and there are also nearby beaches and sites used by dive companies; Hospital Point is a short kayak or boat ride, to the tip of Isla Solarte and has a pristine beach with good swimming and snorkeling.

About Carol Knight

I am a retired biological scientist who did research in the Bocas de Toro area on several occasions throughout my career. I have 3 children and 6 wonderful grandchildren who love to travel ! I live in Naples, Florida and love traveling to Panama with my friend Richard! We spend time in both the highlands of Boquete, and in Bocas del Toro on the Caribbean.

Carol Knight purchased this villa in 2015

Why Carol Knight chose Bastimento

I fell in love with the Bocas archipelago and always wanted a waterfront Caribbean home where I could live simply and genuinely in an ecologically sustainable environment. La Casa Blanca was love at first site, and will provide a wonderful place for me and my family to enjoy as well as other guests who appreciate its beauty. When you wake up in the morning and look out to the Sea from the veranda, there is nothing more beautiful !!

What makes this villa unique

La Casa Blanca is an ecologically sustainable home and as such uses solar power and rain catchment. Living there gives me a chance to appreciate the simplicity and genuine beauty of the Bocas archipeligo. The home makes me feel a oneness with nature and the sea, and lets me slow down and enjoy life the way it is surely meant to be. I will always be grateful to have this unique and special home on the Caribbean ! I hope my guests appreciate the same benefits of living in La Casa Blanca.

Notes:
There are many restaurants and bars in Bocas Town and other Islands. On Isla Solarte there is the Blue Coconut, a lovely restaurant, only a 5 minute water taxi away; they even provide free snorkeling equipment and have a great reef with many starfish ! The Islands are usually very quiet, especially Isla Solarte, but during Holidays, you can expect the Islands to be nosier than usual.

Great Quiet Island Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The property was great to get away from it all. Lots of room and a very nice house. The Wifi was very good for those of us that want to stay connected or keep kids from driving you nuts. (we traveled with an 11 and 13 year old) We lived on the wrap around deck! Very safe feel.

The property managers were very helpful in picking us up directly from the airport and showing us around Bocas for groceries and other amenities. The water taxi ride to and from the property was short ($5/person). There are no ameneties where the house is located.

We were a short walk to Hospital point for great snorkelling and swimming. The area in front of the house is not recommended for this as there are too many water taxis going by.

Understand that the house is under solar power and therefore does not have any airconditioning. All the windows open though and there are ceiling fans. We all slept.

Caribbean waterfront villa with spectacular views and own dock.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed everything. The house is excellent what a great experience. I would recommend this house to my friends and family. The neighbors were friendly and helpful. It was a-relaxing peaceful getaway. The owners made sure we were taken care of totally. My son forgot his expensive retainers and the owners were so kind as to send the retainers so we could retrieve them easily. I would definitely stay there again. The water taxis were a unique experience also. There were plenty of fun things to do.

Beautiful House and Location

  • 5 of 5

i had a great time exploring Bocas by day and night and chilling out at the house after. A very good selection of fun restaurants in Bocas. Be sure to visit the Blue Coconut on Isla Solarte. All,points of interest are available by water taxi. Be sure to get the phone numbers of water taxis while you're in Bocas. The property manager can help you, I'm sure.

The view over and across the water is wonderful in the morning while drinking coffee. I'll be back.

Owner's Response: I'm so glad that you enjoyed your visit to Bocas and Casa Blanca. It is so cool to have water taxi transportation right to my dock. In minutes, you can be almost anywhere! Please come back and enjoy more coffee on the veranda. New furniture has just been delivered, so the experience will be even better.....

Wonderful Island Home in A Beautiful Waterfront Setting

  • 5 of 5

I spent 5 nights in this beautiful island home and woke up every morning to fantastic views of the Caribbean Sea from the expansive wrap around porch. The home feels like you are outside and one with nature. Bocas Town was only 5 minutes away by water taxi and we were picked up directly at our private dock for dinner and other entertainment. We swam, snorkeled, and kayaked off the property and hiked to Hospital Point where there is excellent snorkeling. The Blue Coconut bar on Isla Solarte, is only a 5 min boat ride away and was really fantastic with great food, drinks AND a snorkeling bar where they provide you free equipment.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to review Casa Blanca. As the new owner, I am delighted that you enjoyed your visit ! One of the features that drew me to buying the property was indeed the wrap around veranda and its views of the Caribbean, as well as having a private boat dock and swimming right off the beach. I hope you and your family will return again sometime!
