Perhaps one of the more traditional and attractive homes in the area. Only 15 minutes by boat to Bocas Town. This make for a comfortable lifestyle. Located on an elevated area of Isla Solarte , you will stay in good shape by traversing the moderate switchback trail to the house where you will have a grand top view of other islands and Caribbean tour boats coming and going down below. The trail uses “landscapers felt” which keeps the trail clean of weeds and mud. The owner has traversed this trail with supplies for many years and says he barely notices the walk anymore.
There is a 130 foot (39.62 mts) of dock that ends at 5 ft (1.52 mts) of water which is ideal for the current trend of catamarans wanting to be tied to shore for the best of both worlds.
The house occupies 1/2 acre and has easy maintenance. There are 2 structures on the land. One is the house and the other is a secure workshop and storage garage.
