Coastal Lot House Island Escape
24 HECTARE PROPERTY WITH DEEP WATER BAY ACCESS, BAHIA HONDA ON ISLA BASTIMENTOS
This island property is almost 24 Hectares, 95% of which are primary forest!
The 15 minute boat ride from Bocas Town (and its soon to be international airport) to the Bahia Honda property is protected from the open seas by Isla Bastimentos. The property is located just past the Red Frog Marina, and neighbors one of Bocas del Toro’s most elegant eco-hotels, the luxurious La Loma. It is directly in front of the entrance to the canal for the Bastimentos Bat Cave Tour.
Bahia Honda is a deep water bay on the leeward side of Isla Bastimentos, making this property ideal for mooring a sail boat. The property is entered through a lagoon with 12 to 15 feet of depth.
Backing onto the Bastimentos National Park, and almost totally primary forest, the property is home to red frogs (whom appeared on David Attenborough’s ‘Life in Colour” !!!), Monkeys, Iguanas and Sloths to name a few.
There is a pineapple plantation, cassava growing, and various mature fruit trees to begin your self-sustainable adventure.
Past the plantation there are stunning views from the hilltop towards Isla Solarte and beyond to much more of the archipelago. This gorgeous hill top view point is only a 15 minutes walk from the Bahia Honda property’s private front dock.
The border at the back of the property meets the Bastimentos National Park, meaning you wont be tresspassing whilst on your hikes to the island’s wild beaches!
Located just a few meters from the access dock, the Bahia Honda property has a spacious two-story house, built entirely with wood from the region.
On the first floor there is a large deck, two bedrooms and a bathroom. On the second floor there is an open kitchen and a large bar, surrounded by a wrap around deck. On this second floor there are 2 more rooms. The second floor boasts open views of the forest and gardens with fruit trees and tropical plants.
About 50 meters from the home is a casita, currently being used as storage.
