This is a very special property, an absolute gem, that will check most of your boxes! It is very difficult to find a property for sale in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago that is only a few minutes boat ride from Bocas Town, with a beautiful Caribbean sandy beach, and plenty of TITLED acreage to still develop if desired.
The property is located near the Northwest tip of Isla Solarte (Hospital Point) facing West towards Bocas Town and Isla Carenero. It is accessed from a 150 feet long dock that is 5 feet wide. Constructed with cement posts and includes a thatched roof at the end with over a 12' x 17' area offering bench seating, a ladder into the water for swimming access, and a step-down landing area for boat dockage. There is a second thatch roofed area covering a boat slip with a cable hoist to lift a boat. The property has 205 feet of water frontage, 135 feet being a sandy beach, and 70 feet coral rock. The snorkeling direclty in front of the property and all around the tip of Solarte is fantastic. The depth is only about 4-5 ft and there are numerous large brain coral heads with a multitude of brightly colored fish and sea life.
A concrete walkway will lead you from the dock to the two structures on the property, the main home ("The Pink House in the Rainforest") and an adjacent casita ("Sea Dreams Cottage"). There is 12-volt lighting on the walkways and dock that is set on an automatic timer. The sides and the rear of the property are fenced in.

Sea Dreams Cottage

There is a fantastic outdoor shower that is in the back of the cabin facing the breathtaking green jungle.

Varnished Nispero rafters support corrugated fiberglass roof panels. The flooring is also varnished Nispero. Furnishings included.
This property is off-grid, powered with solar panels installed in 2016 and solar batteries that were purchased in 2020. A 24-volt DC system utilizes twelve Trojan 2-volt batteries connected in series and charged by fourteen roof-mounted solar panels, 350 watts each. A 2500-watt inverter converts the 24-volt DC power to 110-volt AC power, which powers all the lights, outlets, and ceiling fans. The cottage is connected to the same solar system.
Rain catchment system is used for water supply with 2,500 gallon capacity with a triple filtration system. The cottage is connected to the same water supply. The two houses have their own septic systems and tanks.
