As seen on Island Hunters, your own Island in Bocas del Toro

At the entrance to Dolphin Bay, Bocatorito, Bocas del Toro 00000 | County


Cool coastal property island in Bocas del Toro for sale with lots to offer. Make your dream come true and buy this private island with so many improvements. Finished in April 2017. Not too many of these around.

Fantastic location about 20 minutes from Bocas at the entrance to Dolphin Bay off Cristobal Island. It could be the perfect location for a day time restaurant/bar and so much more. Everyone has to pass this way to get to Dolphin Bay. Yet, the island it is still very private. 

You arrive at a 20 ft by 20 ft over the Caribbean Sea open-air bar with a 125 ft cement dock (never have to worry about usual dock maintenance). Special features include colored lights embedded in the concrete dock, a stainless steel swim ladder, and dockside WiFi. The bar is a great area to welcome friends to a cocktail as they arrive. The green-lighted bar is cleverly made from Jaeger bottles and other recycled materials. There is a custom outdoor surfboard shower with its own 150 gal water tank and pump for after a dip in the ocean right on the dock. This place has tons of character!!!

Then, as you approach the main house, there is a great raised covered building with a pizza oven, freezers, icemaker, storage room, and raised patio. The owners affectionately call this the IHOP because of the blue roof. It too has WiFi. Between the dock and IHOP are 2 separate men/women bathrooms with a separate septic system. This building is 31 ft by 20 ft and the outdoor deck is 20 ft by 20 ft. All built on top of a 15,000-gallon water freshwater cistern with a 1hp pump offering more than 5x's what most properties have.

The entire property is off-grid with 24 solar panels, 24 batteries, and a backup gasoline generator in a lower-level storage room. Above the storage room, there is also a 12 ft x 11 ft guest casita for overflow friends, family, or for possible rental income. 

 The main home is 40 ft by 47 ft with 2 bedrooms, 2 large bathrooms, and a larger living space with twin 60" ceiling fans. The main house also has strong WiFi reception. The bedrooms can be closed off and each one has an air conditioner for the warmer months. There is a separate laundry area, a custom concrete surface island in the kitchen island that makes for a great place to gather, and a pass-through window to grill. The entire place is open and airy with high ceilings and lots of light. A breezy screened-in porch is off the side of the house with a grilling area and a great view of Bocas Town. Name brand appliances (Panasonic and Samsung) made for off-grid living convey and are fairly new. The outdoor dockside bar has a Nispero floor (local hardwood) and the other buildings are constructed of treated pine. To further boost the custom feel, there are Canela tree trunk posts in the vaulted living space, cedar open-faced cabinets and, locally built wardrobes.  Last but not least, there is a late model HydraSports 202 dual-console fiberglass American Made boat with Garmin GPS and Yamaha 4 stroke 225 hp engine stored on a new electric boat lift that's included with acceptable offers.

Come see this Caribbean ocean gem soon before it's gone. Don't be the one who missed out by waiting too long.  Private Islands are in short supply.
