It is situated on the windward coast on the island of Bastimentos in Bocas del Toro, Panama.
The soft sea breezes here serve as air conditioning “au natural.”
Chill out among the tropical sounds of singing birds, wild scented flowers and soothing sounds of the Caribbean sea lulling you to sleep!
A true hideaway retreat on a 1/2 acre property canopied by an ancient mango tree, amid lush coconut palm trees, banana trees, and tropical scented flowers. The balcony has a 180-degree unobstructed view of the Caribbean (you can enjoy the view from inside as well), and a casual 50 feet to t...he water's edge.
La casita (as is fondly called) was completed in November 2013 from locally sourced hardwoods. Charming and colorful ethnic/chic décor, handmade driftwood furniture, wild cane and tiled bathroom and (large) shower add a modern touch to the rustic style cabin - provide a comfortable and cozy living experience.
2 private hammocks set by the sea exclusively reserved for you to enjoy !
Our unique habitat and playground offers you a restful stay that also comes with singing tropical birds, bright starry nights, and the sounds of the Caribbean sea lulling you to sleep.
Our front yard playground has 2 swings set by the sea, a fire pit to grill your fresh fish and local veggies. It's yummy! !
Many thick, comfortable driftwood benches dot the property to sit, gaze, or be mesmerized by the Caribbean sea and islands in the day, or in the evening by the bright starry sky.
Here on the island, we all live a simple life - no vehicles or industry. Strolling, walking, hiking, or catching a local boat to your destination.
Jan, our sister and on-site manager, is always available to answer your questions and provide help. She is an amazing chef (she has written 2 vegan cookbooks) and offers tropical continental breakfast - included with the tree house cabin.
She creates delicious, healthy meals from our organic gardens ( grown in volcanic soil by the sea) or from local produce along with fresh caught fish grilled on our stone fire pit - yummy!
Her food is better than any you have ever tasted! She offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, and makes refreshing natural fruit drinks. Special !
Have you ever experienced a noni fruit mask? The most anti aging facial ever!
Or, a volcanic mud facial or body mud pack and washed off in the warm Caribbean sea?
These are both offered to our guests, at no charge; and you can do them daily - if you dare!
It is fun to meander the miles of the coastal path (in front of the property) around this side of the island, exploring virgin coves, swimming inlets and experience a Robinson Caruso-like adventure!
