ELEGANT JUNGLE RETREAT, BLUFF BEACH, BOCAS DEL TORO
This Elegant Jungle Retreat is only steps from the awe-inspiring Bluff Beach on Isla Colon. Designed and built with great consideration and investment in the finest materials, the quality of this newly built structure will shine over-time.
This is an excellent opportunity for anyone who wants to enjoy the Caribbean life, but needs their real estate investment to provide a steady income. Avoid the long and difficult hassle of building or renovating existing structures, and run your own stress-free business at this elegant jungle retreat.
Originally designed to function as a BnB, or a collection of long term rental suites, the designers made sure to preserve the full privacy of the Owner’s Quarters. The Developer’s goal of creating a BnB that stood out from the rest is visible on many levels, it all started with the search for the best location at one of the most pristine and high end locations in Bocas, the magnificent Bluff Beach area.
Before the construction process began, many preparations had been done to ensure the perfect results, soil tests, title registration investigation and a topographic survey to name a few.
This stunning Acre of titled land is the perfect mix of jungle and beach. Backed by wild jungle this property’s back yard continues into the deep protected canopy of Isla Colon where Monkeys, Sloths, Iguanas and Kinkajous know no boundaries!
The garden has Papaya, Pineapple, Sweet Banana, Plantain, Jackfruit, Avocado, Orange Plumbs, Coconut, Lemongrass, many varieties of Hibiscus, Cana, Lilies, Ornamental Gingers, and so much more.
Though this project is undeniably turn key, there is still the possibility of expanding with more cabanas. There are about 2000 m2 of free flat land for expansion, or for segregating and re-selling.
The 288 m2 building, has 5 bedrooms of 31.5 m2 each with their own ensuite bathrooms with river-stone sinks and walk in showers. A 63 m2 deck with lounge corner, a dining area and an open kitchen to embrace the lush jungle views, listen and see the countless birds and monkeys visiting daily, while a gentle sea breeze gently blows your stress away. The 31 ft long swimming pool sits invitingly in front of the house, the perfect place to take a dip with a cold drink.
The design was illustrated by some of the best architects and engineers for off-grid and natural building in Panama, Natural Builders SA . The choice of materials and the techniques used, were all based on the motto ‘last long and be strong’ (while still ranking high on beauty and charm!)
Examples of the building choices that exude this level of consideration are the posts that were used. The elegant Jungle Retreat has 6×6 posts, while 4×4 are standard. The beams are 2×12, point 60 pressure treated, with hurricane clips and the electricity cable is 12 AWG. Each of these choices were expensive investments, but they will prove their value in time. Visiting this jungle gem, will allow you to examine the high quality craftsmanship, and the clever design exceeding may properties in Bocas.
Included in the sale is a 20ft container (functioning as garage for bikes and atv), plus many items bought to start the BnB.
The current owner has generously offered financing. Pay a 50% down payment ( 232,500$), set up your business, then pay the rest monthly with the income you generate from your fantastic BnB.
