Overview

Bocas del Toro Province House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths (Sleeps 2-16) On The Beach With Views To Sea And Jungle.

We operate primarily as a Bed & Breakfast. Our rooms all have en suite bathrooms with showers, closet space and a safe. Room rates start at $99/night for a double room and include a fantastic breakfast each morning.

For groups of up to 16, we can rent all the guest rooms, still on a Bed & Breakfast basis. Included on this property is our new Casita, VRBO#670562, perfect for small families, with room for 2-5 guests. Daily housekeeping and breakfasts are provided. A refrigerator is available in each guest room to store snacks and drinks.

All of our non-smoking rooms have jungle and ocean views with cooling breezes front and back. Screened windows and ceiling fans cool and soothe, and allow the sounds of the sea to lull you to sleep, bird songs to wake you up each morning. There is a Reading and Games Room upstairs, where you can relax. There are books to borrow or trade. Every bedroom has a private bath with hot water, and a spacious deck with sea view and breezes. Hammocks, of course! A beach in the front and a jungle in the back of our property make this a mecca for birds and other wildlife.

We rely primarily on ceiling fans and ocean breezes to stay comfortable. However, there is air conditioning in all bedrooms (except the Casita) for nights when you need to cool things down a little more.

About Sharon

We are from California and have found our dream home away from home in Panama. We know you will like it as much as we do!

Sharon purchased this house in 2012

Why Sharon chose Panama

Bocas del Toro is surrounded by natural beauty and is an adventurer's paradise. The people are fun and friendly.

What makes this house unique

We are close to town, which is convenient. You can call a taxi and get to town. If you don't want to cook, you can have a taxi bring you dinner from one of the many restaurants in town. We have phone, WiFi, water and electricity.

We are far enough from town to have peace and quiet, and be away from the crowds. The sloths and howler monkeys wander through our property, as do all sorts of tropical birds.

Charming and beautiful property and fantastic staff

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week here and loved every minute of it. We were greeted every morning with a yummy breakfast and insight on tourist and local info. by Damaris most of the days and Christen a couple other days. Both were so gracious, hospitable and full of smiles. The rooms were very comfortable and the view of the yard and beach were fantastic. They allowed us to use their bikes for free so we were able to bike to town (in 10min.) and to various beaches. We even got to see some Howler monkeys on our property one day. While many hotels and B&B's are in the middle of town, we loved the fact that we were a little farther out because it was quiet, serene and we pretty much had Sanddollar beach all to ourselves. Most of the rooms has a large veranda with comfortable chairs and a hammock with the beach in view. Sharon was great to work with prior to our arrival and was patient with my questions. We can't say enough about this place and the staff and the location. It was idyllic. f

Wonderful Stay, Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Sharon were excellent hosts- so helpful about what to do, where to go. Breakfast each morning was healthy, fresh and plentiful! Rooms clean, spacious with great location overall. Away from noise of town, beautiful view of water. Would definitely return. Enjoyed variety of others guests as well.

Both Relaxation and Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay with Sharon & Mark, guests and staff. Easy to come and go from this location for Bocas town or the remote shore line. We visit Bocas often and this was our most relaxing stay. Safe, secure, clean, accomodating, lovely gardens and back yard jungle and fabulous breakfast. Check out the boat tour that Luis can provide. Great snorkeling and nature viewing of the island treasures.

Great location, great breakfast, great staff

  • 5 of 5

We booked this for friends of ours who were meeting us in Bocas from Costa Rica, and we could not have been more pleased with the accommodations and the location. The staff is very professional and courteous. They serve a wonderful breakfast with all locally grown fruits and veggies as well as fresh eggs right from their own chickens. A very pleasant place to stay while in Bocas del Toro. We recommend this to anyone who is planning on visiting these beautiful islands and who is looking for a quiet place, but close enough to town. Way to go guys. Big thumbs up.

Car: not necessary

There is so much to do in Bocas del Toro. Just to name a few:

Horseback riding: we can arrange horseback tours of a few hours or all day. Take a ride out to a secret swimming lagoon or just ramble through the jungle looking for monkeys.

Boat tours: we can help you find a tour that meets your interests, to any of the several islands in the area.

Surfing: world class surfing with relatively uncrowded lineups, just a mile down the beach from our house.

Biking: the best way to get around on the island is on a bicycle. We can help you rent a bike by the day, or for the duration of your stay.

Zip lining: on nearby Bastimientos island, have the thrill of zooming through the forest canopy. From the tree tops, the sounds of the rainforest truly come to life: squawking parrots frequently fly through the trees, see or hear white face Capuchin monkeys during your tour.

Scuba diving or snorkeling: due to its isolation from large cities, river mouths and thanks to the fact that Bocas del Toro is outside of the Caribbean's hurricane zone, the reefs of Bocas del Toro in Panama have some of the best preserved hard and soft coral in the world. Hook up with one of several dive operators to visit underwater Bocas.

Swimming: the bay out front is great for swimming all year. Start your day with a refreshing swim, shower off in our outdoor shower just in time for breakfast. Float toys available for the more relaxing swim.

Chocolate farm: after hundreds of years of using cacao for traditional and health purposes, the Ngobe Indians of Panama are now sharing their secret with the rest of the world. The experienced guides will walk you through the entire chocolate making process from growing the cacao to harvesting, drying and processing. Take a boat ride to the mainland or Bastimientos Island, where you can visit a cacao farm.

Botanical gardens: just a 5-minute walk away is Cerro del Mono Botanical Gardens where your hosts will take you on a walking tour to view flora and fauna. This unspoiled and off-the-beaten-path Panama destination is a perfect playground for communing with nature.

Relaxation: perhaps the real reason you came is just to relax! Grab a cool beverage and jump into one of our hammocks and let the ocean waves lull you to sleep.
