We cannot believe the owner is finally going to sell!! After 12 years of meticulously developing one of the most spectacular properties in Bocas Del Toro, the always busy owner is off to build another dream land on the Pacific side. A new owner will inherit a functioning utopia of ten acres or almost four hectares with 143 meters of waterfront. Only a 30 minute boat ride to Bocas Town and 10 minutes to Loma Partida, where there is a small store and fuel. The property is located on Isla Popa in a place called Tocan Bay.
The property has a covered boat dock, caretakers cabin, small rental house, a bodega and tool room, small creek house and then the gem of it all, is the owners house in the clouds. There is plenty of depth for anchoring a power yacht or a large sailboat, for those boaters who want to live both lifestyles, land and sea!
The main house is perched on a ridge that is approximately 125 to 150 feet above sea level. From the top you may not want to ever come down as your view is of Bocas Town in the foreground, 6 other islands and the mainland mountains. AND there are 2 – 4×4 Quads to whisk you up to the top. Life made easier and fun!
Lush jungle is on one side and the back of the property. You almost expect Tarzan to come visiting swinging on a vine with his trusted chimp Cheta toward the property. The entire property is fenced. Big birds fly by at the same altitude so you also “get a bird’s eye view”. Some of the local wildlife include many varieties of tropical birds, exotic butterflies and also monkeys, dolphins, pelicans and sloths.
Most of the property has mature landscaping with many types of hibiscus, haliconia, bougainvilleas, orchids, ginger and several types of decorative palms. There are red palms, manila palms, and fox tail palms as well as coconut palms. The back is a finca (farm) that produces bananas, yucca, dachine, limes, cacao, pineapple, coconut, guava, mango, breadfruit, soursop and orange. Hard to go hungry here!
The main house concise of three buildings with a master bedroom and a bath in one, two bedrooms and a shared bath in another. The main building has the living area, kitchen, laundry room and a large work shop. Total square footage is 1800 feet. The large deck is around 1700 sq ft.
The bodega and shop is 930 square ft. You can have some fun in there! The rental house is 410 sq ft. It has hot/cold water, solar power and has master bedroom and separate bathroom with a shower. The long term trusted caretakers house is one room and a dock. The cabin is located below for security. There is a small cabin with a deck on a creek in the back of the property. The property is clean ROP – Rights of Posession with long term expat ownership.
All structures are powered by top of the line solar systems with generator backups. All have water catchment systems with storage tanks. Internet is available. A 2010 fiberglass 20′ panga with a 2004 40 hp Yamaha is included in the sale.
