Casa de las Olas, or "house of the waves", is a very popular beachfront rental. Its tucked into the jungle, along a private beach, and is surrounded by 12 acres of tropical lush rainforest & manicured lawns. This 4000sq ft house features an expansive beachside veranda opening the kitchen & living room up to the beautiful sound and view of the Caribbean Ocean.
Welcome to Casa De Las Olas - our own “house of waves.” This paradise spans 4,000 square feet and is situated a mere 50-feet from the surf of your own private beach in the community of Bocas del Drago. Your warm welcome after a trip to town for provisions will set you up for the perfect getaway - you won’t have a worry in the world as you settle in amongst the sea and rainforest.
Casa De Los Olas is an open concept living space with decks that surround the interior of the property. Large doors open from the living room and lead to the main deck to bring the beautiful outdoors, inside. Lounge freely on couches, chairs, and hammocks, and enjoy your meals on the outdoor dining table on sunny afternoons or cool evenings. While the natural elements that surround you will occupy most of your time, the home is, of course, fully equipped with WiFi, TV and DVD options.
As in most homes - vacation or otherwise - the heart of the home can often be found in the kitchen. We have stocked our open-concept kitchen for you and yours, complete with a gas stove, full pantry, and an extension of the kitchen can be found on the deck with your very own grill. Upon request, a private chef can prepare meals for you right at home.
There are three total bedrooms: one, large, private master which has its own quarters and a private bathroom, as well as one loft and an additional guest room. The master bedroom is an oasis, in and of itself: a brand new, hypoallergenic, aloe-top king-sized bed, a wrap-around deck, and doors that open right to the beach. The other bedrooms are located in the main quarters; one lofted room has two single beds and a full bed- great for the kids! The final room has a queen-sized bed and is adjacent to the main living space.
Bocas del Drago is known for its beautiful beaches and expansive properties - meaning neighbors are a rare sight. Casa De Los Olas is located at the end of a long, private driveway - a 40-minute drive from the town center - and behind a locked gate; a private paradise!
Soak in all 12 beachfront acres this home has to offer, as well as manicured gardens and access to a truly wild, untouched rainforest. A favorite activity among guests is to take morning walks and visit one or all of the turtle nests on our beach during the season - there are two different, endangered species of turtles that inhabit our property. We are currently working with turtle biology experts to craft specialty tours around the turtles’ migration patterns and life on Bocas del Drago - be sure to ask us about booking this once-in-a-lifetime experience with the turtles when making your accommodations!
Other than our turtle friends, Casa De Las Olas is tucked along a monkey trail, so you may have a furry visitor come over to the house! Other wildlife known around the property include sloths, iguanas, Capuchin and Howler monkeys, and a variety of tropical birds.
More adventurous activities include kayaking, which come with the house and are available at all times. Note that the waves on our beach vary in size depending on the time of season, so calm days are perfect for a good paddle. We also offer snorkeling and fishing gear. Fishing is exceptional along the beaches of Casa De Los Olas; we’ve known people to catch Tarpins right off our shore!
For guided tours, we are happy to charter a boat and captain for you to explore the nearby islands like Zappatilla or other local destinations including Star Fish Beach, Bird Island, or Dolphin Bay. (Additional fees apply for guided tours).
Our neighborhood is behind a locked gate ensuring everyone's privacy. The thick jungle surrounds the dirt road that parallels the ocean around the tip of the island. Bird Island is clearly visible just off the tip of Isla Colon. Everyone that lives along this private road shares their home with all of the sloths, monkeys, insects, birds, & reptiles of the rain forest. While this home has luxuries, it still sits in the jungle, and close to the ocean. There are hidden gems located just minutes from our home, that you won’t find anywhere else. Places like “ Mimbi Timbi”, a beautiful blue lagoon that pools before heading out to the ocean. It’s a beautiful place to stay, and between the comfort and luxury feeling of the villa, to the beautiful ocean and jungle that surrounds the house with its sounds and animals, Casa de las Olas is a home that allows you to truly enjoy Bocas del Toro, and all that this area has to offer.
