About Tera

We live in the blustery cold state of Minnesota, USA and on vacation, we absolutely fell in love with Bocas. Once there, we never wanted to leave! After we saw this house and the location, we saved up and made our dream purchase happen. We are most excited about having our children immersed in another culture while enjoying all there is to do in Bocas. We also can't wait for our friends and family to stay in the house and be woken up by howler monkeys!

Nothing would make us happier than sharing this house and beautiful area with anyone who chooses to vacation here! We want everyone to love it as much as we do. We hope you will stay with us and enjoy your dream vacation!

Tera purchased this house in 2006

Why Tera chose Bocas del Toro

This house is in the perfect location on the island. It's across the street from the beach and only a bike ride away from great surfing and Bocas town. As for the property, it has a beautiful deck, beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife and vegetation. Also, it's an extremely safe area, as is the entire island.

Also, we have wireless internet and 2 pedal bikes available for rent!

What makes this house unique

We have a caretaker Javier, who lives next door. He can set up fishing trips, cave tours, snorkeling, whatever you wish to do!

Staying with us, you get to enjoy the large, open deck. You also the sites and sounds of monkeys and birds in the jungle in the backyard. This house is in the best location on the island, near the beach and surf spots yet it is close enough to town but far enough to be quiet and private.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Don:

We had a wonderful time last week at your home in Bocas. As everyone says I'm sure we spent a lot of time on the deck. Enjoyed swimming in the ocean just on the other side of the bridge too. Javier was great. He was always available if we needed him. We rented bikes from him and enjoyed doing a ride each day. We rode to del Drago- took the bus back with the bikes on top- out to Bluff beach and had lunch at Carolina- what a view. Was also great to be able to ride into town. Loved it

Amazing.

  • 4 of 5
We had an amazing time in Bocas Del Toro and would love to stay at the Casa Oceana again! The place has good vibes all around- feels a bit like a family lake-house that you go to every summer :) The deck was the best part indeed- the hammock and plenty of other places to sit and relax, and listen to the howler monkeys. The ocean is short walk, and you can get to town in five minutes via a $2 cab ride.

On rainy days, we would relax in the living room with a movie- there is plenty of room around this house and all the right amenities. The shower water pressure was a little low and the shower was a bit finicky but that's the only real complaint. Though the outside shower has great water pressure (but is chilly- good for a hot day.) The owners were amazing to work with throughout the entire process and made sure we had everything we needed.

Bocas Del Toro is an amazing experience and the house definitely added to it :) We also walked a short five minute walk to the ATV rental up the road which is an absolute MUST do! It was so much fun and a great way to see the beautiful Isla Colon.

Paradise!

Amazing place in a beautiful Bocas del Toro. Close to the beach. Easy to get around town. The caretakers of the house take good care of the guests and made us feel right at home. Had a hard time getting out of the hammock on the large front porch because it was so nice.

Loved Don's Panama pad. My husband got some great surf - and with in walking distance from the house. The patio was a nice place to hang out for BBQs and cocktails. What a place... if only we could stay forever!

Sweet surf/jungle house

  • 5 of 5
Very pleased with the house and the area. Everything from being met at the airport by javier and transported to our rental house.Everything that we needed was taken care of by javier from bike rentals to taxis etc..For those who surf..paunch break was a 5 min.bike ride from the house and a three dollar taxi from town. Lots of lights around and on the grounds and felt safe being in the jungle . Both neighbors are year round owners and you get a sense of security being next to them. Thanks for a sweet place to stay , it make me not want to stay at a hotel again!

Fun, relaxing experience in the tropics

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Don's place for our honeymoon. The place is as billed--open, surrounded by natural beauty, close to the water, and relaxing. I think it's perfect for two but could sleep more if needed. You'll love this place if you want to get away from reality. There are neighbors close by, but not close enough that you'll notice them. We cooked a lot and all of the equipment worked well.

After reading the highly negative review on a prior date, I'd agree with what Don wrote: this is a tropical island. You shouldn't come to Bocas if you cannot tolerate seeing a frog or salamander in the apartment--you're living on a forested tropical island. This isn't a resort, but it's very nice. If you don't keep clean, bugs will come. The furniture had normal wear and tear, but compared to other hostels, bed and breakfasts, and VRBOs that we saw on the island, the quality was better than most. The place was clean, and Javier was responsive to anything we needed (although we didn't need much). If you want a resort-likely feel with pristine upholstry, room service, and brand-new amenities, look elsewhere, because that's not Bocas! However, Bocas (and this rental) offer a very unique and fun experience.

Second visit to Don's place

Second visit to Don's place
  • 5 of 5
My wife and I came back to Casa Oceana for the second time and we had a great time again. Being awakened by the monkeys in the morning is so special. We saw a sloth in the yard and it was very cool. The house is always clean and has all of the things you need for a comfortable stay. We love the large deck and spend most of our time there. Javier the grounds keeper is so helpful with everything, he took us on a jungle tour one day and arranged for us to go fishing on another day. I wanted to go surfing but was only able to go 1 day. We loved the beach near the house, it is great for swimming if it hasn't been raining when is is raining is is a little murky. We had a great time and I would recommend this to anybody and everybody. We will come back again next year.
