The Bocas Bay Lodge is a road and sea accessible retreat known for its epic views, detailed attention to comfort, stylish accommodations, an incredible ornamental garden, and a natural pool. Located only 20 minutes from the town of Almirante, this oasis guarantees tranquility and ease of access. The lodge is also an income-producing property that includes ocean views and is waterfront accessible.
Sitting on 1.3 hectares of oceanfront mainland, the property slopes down from the road to the sea, framed by a beautiful coral reef along the shoreline. Approximately half of the property is gardened and manicured around the main building, with the remaining half consisting of jungle and mangrove.
The property boasts several unique buildings, all powered by solar panels with a backup generator and rainwater plumbing. The most impressive is the private home, featuring an open office, a kitchen and dining area, one bedroom, and 1.5 bathrooms. The panoramic view of the Almirante Bay and the Drago Channel is a standout feature.
The kitchen is equipped with a wood-burning pizza oven, and the home’s expansive hardwood accordion doors open fully to the sea air and stunning views.
Additionally, there’s a beautifully decorated cabana featuring natural thatch roofing and Moroccan accents throughout. This cabana includes two bathrooms, a living room convertible to a second bedroom, and an outdoor kitchen for guests wishing to self-cater.
Between these two buildings is a round rancho, currently used as an outdoor gym but with potential to be converted into a third cabana. Nestled below the rental cabin and gym, a natural infinity pool is built off the property’s unique rock features.
Surrounded by a wall of flowering shrubs, this pool offers complete privacy and stunning views. The property also includes a small rock dock and boat shelter by the sea’s edge.
Lastly, there’s a large workshop located near the road, currently used by the owner for building custom furniture. A massive cistern sits beneath the workshop, ensuring a constant water supply.
The Bocas Bay Lodge is ideal for part-time hoteliers looking for an extra income source, with the flexibility to open or close the cabana as desired. The property’s workshop and natural surroundings also make it perfect for artists and craftspeople seeking a source of inspiration.
