Wake up smiling every morning when you walk outside and see the amazing protected calm water views from your private island. The elevation also affords cooling tropical breezes, as well as the soothing sounds of parrot chatter, to remind you that you are now in paradise in one of the most desirable locations in the Bocas del Toro archipelago. Conveniently located only a short 20-minute (5 mile) boat ride to spirited Bocas Town, your boat ride to town is through a protected channel. This popular area is known locally as, “The Cut,” situated between Isla Bastimentos and Isla Solarte where you can observe the tourist boat traffic in the distance from your elevated perch.
The house has three separate bedrooms each with their own bath. There is a common kitchen with bar sitting area as well as open-air dining and living area. All structures were engineered, by the engineer owner, to exist for a very long time. Substantial concrete was used in the post and beam foundation. This is a “green,” sustainable off-the-grid compound with a top of the line Outback Solar system generating 3000 watts powering the entire property, there are also new batteries. The water catchment system is designed to never run out of water with 7500 gallons stored in 6 tanks. A propane powered generator is used as backup in the rainy season. There are 4 propane “hot water on demand” systems installed in the bedrooms and kitchen. The kitchen has a refrigerator, laundry and, a real luxury item here in the islands, a dishwasher. WiFi is installed. A septic system with drain fields is already in place. The property is total turnkey with all furniture and fixtures included with the exception of some personal items.
The grounds are well-manicured and include tropical trees, flowers, coconut and pineapples. The dock can easily accommodate two boats. There are three deep water mooring buoys for sailboats should owners want to store their boat in a protected harbor on a rental program. The property had been set up to have the owner’s cabin with two long term rentals for added income at $750 a month each plus a share of fuel and groceries. It is also set up as a family compound with a great location for family and guests to easily access famed Red Frog Beach and zipline, Crawl Cay restaurants, explore Isla Zapatilla, the bat cave tour at a Ngobe village, and the town of Old Bank on Isla Bastimentos for all the funky reggae bars and creole restaurants. Or stay home and swim, snorkel and fish right off your dock. This place has it all and has plenty of room to add more rooms for family and friends if needed. The island is an easily managed approximately 1 acre ROP (Rights of Possession) property with the owner having resided full-time for over 12 years. You would be proud to be the owner of this incredible tropical island. Owner has recently passed away and the Estate wants the property sold. Currently there are professional caretakers living on premise. This is a great time to bring offers to acquire your own private Caribbean Island!
