The house was featured on House Hunters International in the fall of 2012. Coral View House is a one of a kind house built over the Caribbean waters in a great location! There are so many wonderful things about this house it is hard to know where to begin. Jump off the huge front porch for some snorkeling, or just lay in the hammock and watch the boats go by!

About the neighbourhood
The area of Bocas Del Toro is a wonderful archipelago. On one side is the open ocean for those who like the waves: surfers; fishermen; etc. The other side is protected by the islands and an extensive reef system creating a very large calm water area. Rather like a lake but filled with all the wonders of the Caribbean sea. The opposite direction is the mainland of Panama with views of the mountains that constitute the continental divide. We are very lucky to have the best of all worlds.
