Property description

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 and a TV/DVD set. 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 kitchenware has been completely 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 inspires genuine living and 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 10 minute walk, or short kayak ride, to the tip of Isla Solarte and has a pristine private beach with good swimming and snorkeling.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2015

About: 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.

Why Bastimento, Panama:
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 !!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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.
