A vacation at our villa is like being transported to Jurassic Park. Monkeys, Dolphins, Parrots & Eagles are seen on a daily basis. Fisherman are often seen just off the point of the island. As it is famous for Red Snapper. Most morning the water is totally calm & ideal for paddling or a ski behind one our boats. We are the perfect launch point to go whale watching or spear fishing to Isla Ladrones. The Chiriqui Marine Park is just 30 minutes away & it is one of the super natural jewels of the Province. Best of all, we can have you from the airport to the villa in 45 minutes! We have all the luxuries like high speed internet, five AC units & Netflix's. The rooms all have teak hardwood floors,10 foot bamboo ceilings & an over head fan. Each room having an incredible view as the exterior walls are all glass. The villa is comprised of three 800 foot Steel, Teak & Bamboo platforms. Each of the rooms has an incredible view, thru the glass with curtains that can be drawn. The first room has 2 sets of bunk beds, central night table & lamp & a large armoire for clothing. The second has a nice queen bed, Rustic hardwood chair, armoire & two end tables. Both rooms are large. The master is on its own 800 foot platform & has an attached 3 room master bath & its own covered porch with teak deck furniture. This room has a king bed, armoire, desk, two end tables, chest & another ornamental cabinet. The kitchen is fully stocked with all the appliances you would expect back home. There is a 20 foot long marble island that allows for seating of close to a dozen. We have a gas barbecue to grill your freshly caught fish of the day.The living room has two funky Bamboo chairs & a large sectional for seating. It easily converts to additional spot to sleep two more. We have an entertainment center with a Onkio 5.1 receiver, 5 speakers & two DVD players, both have different formats. The flat screen TV receives Netflix's in English. We have high speed internet & fantastic WIFI. We also have a Magic Jack phone system so you can call home to North America for free!! The home & furniture has a Bali theme, It blends well with the thatch covered bamboo post & beam roof system. These three 60 foot long thatched roofs cover the villa's three 40 foot long pavilions & the bodega which houses the laundry room, sporting equipment & the off grid power system. The walls are glass to give you the feeling of living in the jungle, but of course you are completely isolated from the outside. We have all the conveniences, like AC in every room, high speed internet, Netflix's & crushed ice. We also have a guest cottage on the property. It can be rented in addition or separately. Contact me for a quote please! It is more of a chalet stye, as it has a loft that could be used for extra guests. It is a 530 foot 2 bedroom with a 240 foot covered porch in the front. it has a nice kitchen with both inside & outside dining tables. There is a nice tile shower in the bathroom & cedar bathroom cabinet with a big glass bowl sink. The vanity has 3 drawers to store your toiletries. Especially good for longer term guests. Each of the rooms has a ceiling fan & there is an AC unit in the front of the house. The cottage is well insulated, so we think that it will stay cool once it is down to temperature. It has an induction element & a 3 burner Italian cook top. A stove exhaust fan. The convection oven sits just on top of the hood fan. There is a large fridge to store your food & beverages. The kitchen is stocked with most of the pots & utensils you use at home. Yes, we have a large array of solar panels & a new large set of batteries to store the power of the sun in Panama. We just installed our new high efficiency Perkins diesel generator. To ensure there is always a way to keep the rooms cool at night. We do not intend for our guests to stay inside the house all day under the AC. That is NOT possible in an off grid environment. But we want to ensure guests a comfortable night relaxing & a good nights sleep. The property is on a jungle preserve with incredible trees, some fruit bearing, with birds & monkeys giving an ambiance similar to Jurassic park. The calm warm waters are accessed by our 150 foot long pier. We have our own small private beach with cement steps to access it. It is great spot to lay out in the morning or to go for a swim, paddle or to water ski off of the beach or our 24 foot long dock. Access to all the fishing in the bay & out into the Hannibal bank is a must. We have a small barge for transporting a few people & all their luggage. We have a quick run about (with a ski bar, double skis & a knee board for the kids) We also have a 20 foot open boat with 3 bench seats for transporting larger groups of people & their luggage. One of our boats can get you right into the marina at Petragal in about 40 minutes. Petragal is just 4 minutes from the airport; which is only 5 minutes from the city of David. Beds: 1 King Bed, 2 Queen Beds, 6 Twin Beds, 2 Sofa Beds, 1 CribMore

About the neighbourhood
Car: Not Necessary We are ideally situated to explore all the activities that the Bay of Chiriqui has to offer. Fishing in the bay as a quick way to amuse your self & catch your own dinner. We could arrange it, so that our boat captain (who use to be a local fisherman) takes you out to catch some fish or maybe you want to see if you can catch a 100-300 pound Tuna or Marlin. If so, we can arrange a deep sea fishing trip out out to the world famous Hannibal Bank. You can water ski on the calm water in the bay all year long. Explore one of the hundreds of small island beaches. Find caves & maybe meet a surf school at Isla Silva for a day or two of lessons. There is a great monkey preserve only 10 minutes away by boat, we canarrange a day trip (Fridays) that will be highly educational. G...
Getting around
You either hire Victor to take you out or we can connect you with Daniel, he has a 31 foot, twin engine. He can take you out on a fishing trip or to explore the Secas Islands. There is also some spectacular spear fishing around Isla Ladrones. Daniel can make it there in 1 hour from Mango Bay. Often the fish are in droves there!
