Isla Solarte facing Bastimentos, Solarte, Bocas del Toro, 00000
Asking Price: $299,900 USD (Negotiable)
One of the very special features of this coastal Bocas del Toro, Panama home is the family of hawks that have been nesting on the property for about 4 years. Each year you get to watch the Momma sit on her egg and hatch a new baby, then watch that baby hawk grow till it leaves the nest. Nature at its finest.
This Tropic Beauty is a Custom 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath home located on half an acre of lush Isla Solarte, located in the Bocas del Toro Archipelago in Caribbean Panama, and only 30 miles from Costa Rica. A short 45-minute plane ride from Panama City will land at the local Bocas Airport and then 15 minutes to home by boat!
This is a beautiful waterfront, two-story, 3,000 SqFt, is built home and truly built with “Canadian Pride". Most building materials were delivered via containers right from Canada, and even built to earthquake standards (try to find THAT anywhere in Bocas!)
Here, you’re totally off-the-grid with no power bills to pay! But don’t be fooled into thinking there are no comforts being off-grid! With 18 solar panels, a powerful Outback Inverter, and 8 HUGE Trojan lead-acid batteries, and a backup generator (just in case), you can watch the game on the big screen TV and won’t have any worries of running out of power.
There is a large 3-Bay storage building and each bay has lockable roll-up security doors. With three water storage tanks filled with 4,000 liters of natural soft rainwater there's no worries of going dry. And, just wait till you've had the experience of a cooling natural rainwater shower!
We’re just 2 miles from Bocas Town (Isla Colon)… Close to the airport and all the amenities of Bocas, but just far enough away to enjoy the quiet and true serenity of beautiful Solarte Island. Watch colorful hummingbirds dance from flower to flower, and listen to the distant sounds of tropicbirds in the forest right from your balcony. Birdwatchers…Bring your binoculars!! The island has trails to hike, explore, and bird-watch. Be sure to look for the lazy sloths, monkeys, and green parrots hiding in the tropical canopy high above!
This secluded quite house overlooks beautiful Hospital Byte. Across the bay is Bastimentos Island with views of the Red Frog Marina and many mangrove-lined bays. Minutes away is the manicured path leading to Red Frog Beach. There, you can relax at the beach with great food and a nice coldie served right to your umbrella beach chair. Go ahead, wiggle your toes in the warm sand, swim the warm blue turquoise warm Caribbean water, and enjoy a day at one of Panama’s best beaches! Best of all…Your home is just minutes away!
Snorkel right from your own dock and count the colorful tropic fish. Or, try your hand at fishing, diving, beach-combing, or go boating island to island and explore the same area Christopher Columbus explored on his fourth voyage…all right here in historical Bocas del Toro!
The FIRST LEVEL of this beautiful two-story home has the Open Concept with the kitchen/dining/living room, then an office (with WiFi), and a half-bath. The kitchen cabinets and furniture are all built with beautiful local tropic hardwoods – and all furniture is included with the house.
A sweeping tiled stairway leads to the SECOND LEVEL which consists of the Master Bedroom with full en suite bathroom, and walk-in closet. There are additional two bedrooms, a third bathroom, and a laundry area.
This home was built on this particular spot for two reasons…Great Views and Cool Breezes!
Relax on either level of its full wrap-around balconies tiled with special non-slip Brazilian tiles for beauty as well as safety. With the 17 pairs (Yes! 17 PAIRS) of French Doors to let the cool sea breeze inside, there’s no need for air conditioning or to run expensive and noisy generators day and night. After all, you’re here to enjoy peace and quiet.
Close your eyes and just imagine all of this…and when you smile, that’s the same feeling of being here. It’s amazing!
