Casa Comunal, Bocas Del Toro, Panama | vacation home rentals

Located along an idyllic tropical coastline on Isla Colon, this vacation home rental in Panama celebrates both design and nature with a uniquely constructed compound surrounded by lush gardens and large enough for up to fourteen guests.

Enlisting a team of friends, locals and industrial designers, the owner, a self taught architect, has crafted a modern home of steel, glass and concrete that manages to be both contemporary and very down to earth. Comprised of two complete units connected by a shared atrium entryway and large doors that roll away, the spaces are mirror images of one another, both facing the shoreline with panoramic walls of glass that invite the outside in. With jutting roof lines, clerestory windows, double height ceilings and simple clean lines, the structure takes it style cues from mid-century residential and industrial design.

The interiors are welcoming and stylish with a laid-back appeal and decorated with one-of-a-kind handcrafted furnishings, textiles and decor designed by local artisans, sourcing everything as locally as possible.

The north suite includes three double bedrooms and two baths and also includes two unique hanging beds and a suspended hammock in the main area, while the south suite features two double bedrooms and two baths. Each have two large eat-in kitchens and dining areas.

Outside the two spacious covered decks face the ocean and there's a firepit just above the water line. The property practices sustainability with rain water catchment, greywater filtration and irrigation systems, and an abundance of organic fruit from the surrounding trees for guests to enjoy.

Thoughtfully and stylishly designed, this architectural home is a retreat for the senses that celebrates nature and local culture.

 

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, kitchen and bath essentials, laundry facilities, on site parking. 

 

AROUND

The largest and northernmost island in the Bocas del Toro archipelago in Panama, Isla Colon like its neighbors, is blessed with an abundance of cultural and natural biodiversity. The town center is just a short taxi ride or a 20-minute bike ride away and is a vibrant and tightly knit community with delicious local cafes, pubs and a lively nightlife scene. 

The inland hills are great for hiking, and the coastal mangroves for exploring, with several pristine white sand beaches. Known for its excellent breaks, there are also expert waves just a few minutes from the house and around the island during the winter months. Comprised of five separate islands each within a quick boat ride of one another, the Bocas are both culturally and geographically diverse with an abundance of different indigenous, immigrant and expat communities that all contribute the the unique beauty of the islands.

HOUSE RULES: Island Etiquette: The locals build their community off of conversation and communication and we highly recommend building a connection with whomever you may interact, especially our lovely maintenance and cleaning staff. Wave, smile and be friendly and they surely will do the same. Help us break the gringo barrier! Do not remove keys from locks except those you were given at check-in. When there are waves in front, they break very powerfully over a sharp reef. Enter the water at your own risk. Surfing there is for EXPERTS ONLY. The reef is sharp and fragile. If you walk on it, do so cautiously and tread lightly. Use outdoor shower to rinse sandy clothes, sandals, bodies and gear before entering the house or using the indoor showers. Minimize toilet paper thrown into the toilet; and all feminine products go in the trash. Do not wear tinted sunscreens or tanning oils while on indoor furniture or bedding. Don’t sit on indoor furniture while wet. No cigarette smoking inside. You may smoke outside but please collect your cigarette butts and throw them in the trash to keep the property clean. Turn off all lights and fans before leaving the home. Only turn on the outdoor fans if you are under them. We try to use only the fresh rain water in our containers rather than the central water supply so please conserve water! Quiet hours start at 11pm as a courtesy to your neighbors. For your own safety, lock all doors when absent or at night. Don’t leave laptops or other valuables outside or inside in plain view while unattended. Store wet surfboards on the racks in the triangular entryway room or dry them first before bringing them into the house. Don’t put them on the furniture. Removing your shoes and leave them in the triangular entryway room. All books and records are at your disposal but must be returned at the end of your stay.
