Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Bocas del Toro Province - Casa de K

Private ocean view home that sleeps 8-10 people. A/c, 3 Bathrooms. Free WiFi.

Casa de K Beach House is a bright, spacious, and airy 2000+ sq ft home built on a 1/2 acre. It is the perfect home for large or small groups (accommodates up to 10 people). On the main floor (2nd level) there is a Master Suite (with a/c, balcony access, ocean view and a private bathroom), a Junior Suite (with a/c, jungle views and a shared bathroom), and a loft (with two double beds and a shared bathroom). The ground floor (1st level) has two rooms each with a set of bunk beds and a bathroom. There is hot water available throughout the house. There is a large storage area for all your gear, as well as washer and dryer.

The house offers a relaxing living area with plenty of sitting room for all, as well as a large balcony with majestic ocean and island views. There is also a small balcony in the back to enjoy the alluring jungle scene. While sitting on the balconies, one can be serenaded by the ocean waves and jungle noises (birds, howler monkeys, tree frogs, etc). The balconies are perfect spots for enjoying the surrounding landscape filled with tropical foliage (plants, flowers and fruit trees) which draws a variety of tropical birds.

The house is located in a peaceful setting just outside of town, and is close enough to easily enjoy the local charm of Bocas Town. There are three full service restaurants close to the house, and many more just minutes away by taxi. It is a pleasant, culture immersing 45-60 minute walk to the center of Bocas Town.

This home offers a spacious, comfortable and relaxing location to hang out, but also provides a secure home base while you explore all the area has to offer - exploring Isla Colon and surrounding islands: hiking, swimming, boogie boarding, surfing, taking a catamaran tour, snorkeling/diving, sampling local cuisine, shopping, taking Spanish lessons, going on a tour of the Botanical Garden, viewing wildlife, fishing, horseback riding, looking for shells, etc.

Upon arrival in Bocas del Toro, property management staff can help arrange taxis for transportation and grocery shopping, as well as tours, and any other services you may be interested in.

This house is perfect for those who want to kick back and relax in a place where the untouched tropical rain forest meets the crystal blue waters of the Caribbean!

About Kristin

Hola! My name is Kristin Bacon. I am a 16 year Alaskan resident who needs her soul kissed by the tropical sun and surf on a regular basis. I instantly felt as though I was at my second 'home' when I arrived to Bocas del Toro the first time. Currently, I own a pediatric therapy business in Alaska, as well as a sled dog kennel. For me, Bocas Town and this house offer the right combination of simplicity, relaxation, nature, culture and adventure.

Kristin purchased this house in 2009

Why Kristin chose Panama

I chose this property because of its peaceful location and quality construction, as well as the sound/view of the ocean waves and easy access to surfing. These features made this property ideal to me. I also love the wildlife that can be seen and heard around the house.

What makes this house unique

I love the tranquility this home offers!! Casa de K's private location allows me to simply enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean, tropical foliage and variety of wildlife. And, as a surfer this property is hard to beat. Additionally, there is easy access to all that Bocas has to offer -- cultural diversity, water sports, many restaurants, shopping, adventures, Spanish classes, yoga, organized tours, etc.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"Dear Kristin you were a very important part on us having a great time. Thanks for taking care of our needs. I don't know if any other owner would have done what you did.

I am very thankful and hope you rent your house like no other owner in Bocas. Hope it is full all the time... you deserve it!!!!

Thanks again for letting my family stay at your place!!! Tyson was great ...keep him... he can deliver!!!!

God bless and thanks for all!!!"

Casa de K = Tranquil slice of paradise!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you’re looking for a relaxing spot to enjoy the jungle and the beach yet still be within walking proximity to town then look no further than Casa de K! As you drive down the road leading to the house, you’ll notice the lush forest on your left and beautiful waves crashing on your right. The house itself is enveloped in beautiful native foliage inviting to many tropical birds that you're sure to enjoy (binoculars and cameras are a must). Howler monkeys frolicked among the trees bordering Casa de K...we heard them almost daily and watched them from the back deck multiple times during our week-long adventure. My favorite was the day we caught glimpses of a baby howler monkey being carried on its mother's back. Such a sweet moment to see and a lasting memory for sure! A few of the standout moments from our time in Bocas and at Casa de K: island-hopping on water taxis, visiting various beaches: (Red Frog, Paunch, Starfish, and Bluff), snorkeling at the blue coconut, relaxing in the hot pools, the botanical gardens, howler monkeys and their offspring, toucans, hummingbirds, parrots, sloths, the tropical flowers, jellyfish, starfish, watching surfers do their thing (while drinking coffee/having breakfast on the front deck), the unbelievable weather (accompanied by a few thunderstorms and rain that cooled us off and put us to sleep as it danced upon the metal roof), amazing dinners in town at El Ultimo Refugio and Bluff Beach at The Hummingbird. Thank you so much for welcoming us into your home, Kristin. We were sad to leave and look forward to visiting again. It was truly a vacation of a lifetime!

A WONDERFUL stay at Casa de K!!!

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot full capture the absolutely amazing time we had at the oceanside home of Casa de K and in Bocas del Toro!! I simply did not want to leave!!! The home was clean, well-furnished, comfortable and spacious. Lounging on the front porch in the hammocks, couch or chairs while watching and listening to the waves, seeing the tropical birds, feeling the ocean breezes, and sinking into pure relaxation was incredible and almost dream-like!! We also were treated to monkeys in the backyard trees on three occasions during our week-long stay! During sunrise walks down the road, we saw toucans, monkeys, and countless tropical birds. During our visit to the nearby botanical garden, we even saw a sloth! We enjoyed watching the surfers from the front porch while drinking our coffee in the morning. During our time in Bocas town, we enjoyed numerous delicious meals, the highlight being Ultimo Refugio for dinner. We took water taxis to various islands to destinations such Red Frog Beach on Bastimentos (the warmest water and best beach I've ever visited) and The Blue Coconut for lunch and snorkeling. I have traveled all over the world and stayed in a wide variety of accommodations. This trip stands out as one of my absolute favorites!

Tropical paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

What an incredible place to stay especially if you are interested in birds and other tropical creatures like monkeys who hang out nearby or sometimes in the trees behind the house. Nearby islands can be reached where there are beautiful beaches and snorkeling opportunities. Watch surfers while relaxing on the front porch. Wifi was a huge plus!!

Taxi service is good. Local phone and phone number information was available in the house. Many good restaurants are available - some within walking distance. Highly recommended!!!

Amazing stay!

  • 4 of 5

To begin, we were happily greeted by a very nice couple at the airport. They took us by car to get our golf cart rental, which we highly recommend renting while staying at Casa K. We loved it! Great for exploring! From there they let us follow them to the house. Be sure to wear your seatbelt and follow all driving laws! When we arrived at the house, it was better than described. The sound of the ocean waves crashing was unbelievable. We sat on the front porch and just took in the sight and sounds of the crashing waves. Our stay was very comfortable and Tyson was available and prompt in answering our emails and calls. The house provided a house cell phone with all necessary numbers stored in the phone which was great! This house is in an awesome neighborhood. There were 2 restaurant options in the area. The Paki Point Restaurant a few doors down, was an incredible place to eat and drink in the neighborhood. As well as an outdoor evening pizza place. I bit further down the road is bluff beach which has some restaurants and places on the beach to eat and drink as well. Overall, our stay was amazing! Kristen, the owner, was a great about everything. She answered all my questions and full filed all our requests. We would love to stay here again! Thanks!

Great family trip

  • 4 of 5

Our family just returned from Panama, and stayed at this rental for 1 week.

(2 adults, 3 kids ages 14, 12, and 9)

The house was overall better than we expected, with even more space than we needed.

Everything you need is there, and the A.C. in the house works great on the hotter days.

The ocean view deck was a big highlight. Relaxing in the hammocks, enjoying the incredible views was hard to beat.

Also, the management was extremely helpful and professional at arrival, and when we had occasional questions.

The house is in a great spot, as it is close enough to town, but far enough away to be much more relaxed than places in town.

Getting around in Bocas del Toro was different than we expected, so renting a golf cart is highly recommended.

Taxis are everywhere, so that's an option too, as well as renting a bicycle.

There is also a nice restaurant/bar(Paki Point) 100 yards down the road that serves good food and drinks.

We visited during the rainy season, but were pleasantly surprised it only rained "bad" for 2 of our 12 days. Most nights were rainy, but that was not a problem at all.

The thunder and lightning storms some evenings were exciting too.

The clouds were also a bit of a bonus, as they help keep the heat down some.

We didn't get to see the Monkeys, as they were hiding out from the rain mostly, but we did get to hear them a few times.

If you enjoy the rainforest while being nearly ocean front, and outside of the heart of town, you will enjoy this rental.

Be sure to rent ATV's from Flying Pirates, a really fun way to explore the area.

We hope to return soon !

There is a surf break in front of the house (TigerTail), as well as several others within walking distance (Paunch, Dumpers, Bluff) from the house. If one was staying in town, it would require a 3 mile walk, a taxi or water taxi to bring you out to these breaks. This is a HUGE advantage to surfers! (direct assessment of swell, convenient access, secure storage area for your boards) These breaks are the most popular surfing spots in Bocas. This is an ideal location for folks hoping to surf during your visit to Bocas del Toro. This is one of the few locations in Bocas where transportation is not required to access surf breaks.

To Bird Watchers - some of the birds seen at this property are the Toucan, Montezuma Oropendola, Kiskadee, etc.

Howler monkeys can be seen and heard at the house.

There is a Pack and Play for families with an infant/toddler
