Casa del Mono means “house of the monkeys” and the name is perfect as we often see families of monkeys travel through the jungle trees just a few feet from our living room screens. Three of the partners are avid, lifelong surfers so we wanted proximity to Bocas' best surfing spots with the warm inviting waters of the Caribbean. Paunch Beach, with world class surfing, is just ¼ mile from our front door. When the surf is down we snorkel a secluded beach lagoon just a few feet from our home and see colorful tropical fish and stunning views of Isla Carenero & Bastimentos. There is a small beach to enjoy the sun and another close by to test your meddle by body surfing. The bird life and its accompanying songs on Isla Colon is a wonder. Every color in the rainbow is represented. The lush vegetation and exotic blooming plants can be seen year round.
Our home is hand-crafted from the finest local hard woods and is beautifully rustic yet luxurious. The home has three large bedroom suites, each with a custom Queen bed – Bedroom suite #2 has a large loft with three additional twin beds so we sleep up to 9 people comfortably. Each bedroom has a beautiful bathroom with glass block, large rain showers, a large comfortable living space, fully-screened windows & high-efficiency ceiling fans. There is a full kitchen with everything you need to create great meals.
The house is located on 537.67 square meters or 5791 square feet or around 1/7 of an acre. It is located in the small enclave of La Playa Nativa which is landscaped jungle lots and cabanas. The enclave is completely fenced with a shared gravel driveway just off the paved ocean front road.
