Turnkey Bluff House on Isla Popa Overlooking the Caribbean- Deal of the Century!!!

Popa Island, Punta Laurel, Panama
  • $295,000



The owner, a very respected ex-pat here in Bocas , has sadly passed away. His family has no ties to Bocas and has requested an immediate sale of the house. For a fast sale ,  An additional 1.3 hectares of elevated waterfront  property ,  which is situated next to the one acre house lot will be included in this deal. ALSO a 24 ft panga boat with a 70 hp motor is  included, making this the deal of the century in Bocas.


This is truly a spectacular property! “Popa Loma”, as the property is known, was built on a beautiful bluff that affords a million dollar ocean view of the Zapatilla Islands and the Bastimentos National Marine Park.There is white sandy beaches in front of the property. Situated on a one acre easily maintained lot of land, the owner wanted to build another house on this 1.5 hectares lot that he had just purchased.

This beautiful house was built by a good local builder that fashioned the house out of nispero wood – a hard native wood that is almost bug proof and rich in color, and now very hard to find as well as very expensive. The house consist  two 24×24 ft floors inside.There is a ground floor with a bodega. It has 2 bedrooms and two baths with an en suite that has an overlook view. The kitchen and dining area are located on the 2nd floor. There is 1600 sq ft with a 30×12 deck. A deck surrounds the house. A bonus to the property is the home theater  with a large projection screen.The owner was a songwriter and found island inspiration here and recorded in his own mini  recording studio. It’s that kind of place! The house sits on one acre of land.

The house is turnkey with nice furniture and everything you will need to settle in on your new tropical lifestyle. .

The property has another 15×24 bodega that also houses a 5000 watt solar system for the house. There is a water catchment system with more water stored than you will ever need. A septic system is also in place. There is a covered boat lift behind a  break wall. There is also a lift system, a “finicula”, that brings up supplies to the house.The bodega is stocked with all types of tools affording you with hours of pure tinkering or concentrating on  your creative hobbies.

This is a property you wake up in the morning and have to pinch yourself that you own this. Your days can be full with hiking the jungle property outback or enjoying the waters out front with beautiful coral reefs. It is a 35 minute boat ride to Bocas Town and 15 minutes to the little store, over the water seafood restaurants and boat gas station on Crawl Cay. The popular Popa Paradise Resort can be seen from the top deck. Relax in your hammock with a view that only the lucky new owners will get to see from their own private front deck! If you are looking for a great retirement house, second vacation house, or a  higher end tourist lodging that is maintained by a trusted caretaker, look no further. Also you could build a few cabins on the other build lot to start a new lifestyle business here in the tropics.

There are other area ex-pats that get together on certain days and trade boat rides to Bocas Town a couple of days a week for supplies and entertainment. The rest of the time is spent enjoying the tropical lifestyle and looking at the mesmerizing bluff view of the Caribbean Sea.

There is long term clear ownership in this very clean Rights of Possession land. Remember no taxes! The property is in a Panama Corporation for ease of ownership transfer .It is not necessary to be physically here in Bocas to close this deal as it can all be done with the attorneys issuing both parties a “Power of Attorney” for closing.
