Situated on Isla Bastimentos, the largest and most untamed of the Bocas del Toro archipelago, this remarkable property spans over 6 hectares and is fully titled – a rarity in these islands. This parcel is located near the trail leading to Red Frog Beach and close to the sought-after eco-retreat, La Loma. With “Bastimentos Holdings” as neighbors, who own the Red Frog villa estate and the Marina, the location is both peaceful and secure.

The property features two springs and a charming pond, providing abundant fresh water. Infrastructure already exists for damming the water as a backup for the rain catchment system. The oceanfront provides an excellent spot for mooring sailboats as the “Bahia Honda” (meaning “deep bay”) is well-sheltered and has historically served as a storm hideout since the days of Spanish conquistadors and pirates.

The majority of the land is a lush jungle, meticulously preserved to accommodate local wildlife, including White-faced Capuchins, Sloths, night monkeys, raccoons, Armadillos, Caimans, Anteaters, Pacas, and a variety of reptiles and bats. The area around the house is well maintained, with paths leading to the pond and other fresh water sources. Here, you’ll find a multitude of fruit trees – pineapple, coconut, breadfruit, mango, jackfruit, banana, plantain, sour sop, biriba, water/rose apple, lemon, lime, sour orange – all within easy reach.

Built to American standards, the three-story house occupies an elevated site offering striking views of Bocas del Toro’s sunsets. The top floor comprises two bedrooms and one bathroom, while the main floor boasts an open-concept kitchen, living, and dining space, along with a second bathroom and a laundry room. The ground level hosts a large bodega for storage and the utility room. A wide deck overlooks the sea, offering cool ocean breezes and delightful views, often including passing dolphins.

The off-grid system of the house includes:

  • 15 solar panels on the roof
  • 2 septic tanks with a capacity of 1100 liters each
  • 2 water tanks with a capacity of 2500 liters each
  • New lithium batteries (1.5 months old)
  • New hot water heater
  • Magnum 120v/240v inverter (1.5 years old).

The property comes with some extras:

  • A 19 ft Panga with a 40 hp Suzuki outboard (5 years old)
  • A new Bimini top for the boat (still in box)
  • A new dual fuel 12000w generator as a backup for the solar system.

This oceanfront jungle gem, offering a unique combination of wilderness, proximity to the beach, elevation, and island features, is a captivating choice for those seeking a one-of-a-kind property in Bocas del Toro.
