This home is centrally located in BocasTown on the main island Colon, only a few blocks from everywhere (restaurants, shops, markets, atm, airport, and docks where you can dive into our bay for a swim in calm clear water). But, we are on a quiet street where you won’t hear loud music, day or nite, even during festivals. Walk, bike, taxi a mile to the first of many pristine beaches, and on to hikes in the rainforest, and to surfing sites world renowned.
Your home has 3 bedrooms, a living/dining room, kitchen, bath; with cooling stucco walls, tiled floors, paneled ceilings. You are very secure with iron barred/screened doors/windows, with privacy glass/curtains. A tropical garden in front and a rear yard surround you, all fenced in. Bring your kids and pets. Or your wheelchair; house is ground level, all doors are 42” wide. Interiors were completely refurbished about a year ago, so all fixtures, appliances, furnishings are like new.
Each bedroom has custom-made (by me) exotic wood bed frames and nite stands, with 9” thick mattresses, with fine sheets/pillows. 2 have a FullSize bed, 1 has 2 TwinSize beds. All have 3-speed ceiling fans with variable lights, and custom built-in closets/drawers. One bedroom has A/C, sufficient to cool whole house if desired.
The bathroom has modern fixtures and a 3-level hot-water shower, big enough for two …or more. We provide plush towels and wash cloths. Note, our plumbing connects to city sewer, for sanitary waste/paper flushing (not so in many area dwellings).
The kitchen has a LG 14cu. frig/freezer, GE gas stove w/ fan hood, double sink, custom cabinets. Supplied basic cook ware and stylish dining ware enable you to eat at home. Faucet filter makes abundant .03microns pure drinking water; no need to buy/tote bottles.
The living/dining room has a 3-speed ceiling fan with variable lights, and features a large antique mahogany dining table with matching chairs that can seat 6. A 32” TV connects to CableOnda Silver Service (231 channels inc. CNN, NGO, HBO). Move the TV to any room, cable to your device, watch what you stream.
Our locale, being in town, means: We are dependably piped city water, which we filter for general use (washing or showering), and further purify for drinking. We are on the city electric grid, consistently receiving power for lights/appliances. We do urge you to be environmentally respectful, but you do not need to be stingy, starving your living pleasures. You can take long hot showers, watch many movies, drink all the pure water you want, whenever you wish, unlike lodgings off-grid and dependent on rainfall water. All rooms in your house have a minimum 5mb WiFi connection, unlimited Internet data 24/7 — steam Netflix if you have it. If you stay more than a week, an added amenity is washing machine and interior drying lines use for free.
Our locale, being in town, means: Our one flaw is some daytime disturbance by street traffic noise, passing vehicles and people. But, they pass, they are not constant, and not at night. The trade-off is town convenience vs county quiet. As said, we never have loud music noise. If you’ve lived in a city, we will be noise norm to you.
Our building is a duplex. You occupy the larger part, the owner (me) lives in the adjacent studio, each of us with total security/privacy. I am available to assist you in any way you wish; but, I regard your/my privacy — you won’t know I’m next door unless you want/need to. I’ve lived in Bocas for 16 years, own property, manage businesses, and I am the retired Bocas Rep for US Embassy Panama. Meaning, whatever your Bocas interests, I am your experienced personal concierge. Only you and I share the property; there are no other renters/occupants. So, ‘mi casa es su casa’.
