Holiday Rental House
This cottage is situated within 50 feet of our large pier. We also have a boat house & cement boat ramp which we have water access at or near high tide. Convenient ocean access is the main attraction at Mango Bay. The water out front is often clam so it is ideal for a paddle board or to water ski. We are only 1/2 an hour from the marine park & 1 hour from such great fishing spots like Isla Ladrones. The cottage has a full kitchen & a dining table with 4 chairs. We also have a large table with 2 large bench seats in the 240 square foot covered porch. The master bedroom is 10 x 12 feet & the second room is 8 x 12. It has a lower slide out bed that pulls out beside the twin bed. Or we sometimes just put 2 single bed frames in the room. All the rooms have fans & we have new air conditioner...This cottage is situated within 50 feet of our large pier.

All the rooms have fans & we have new air conditioner installed. The floors are all plank flooring & the bathroom is tile on the floor & the shower walls. The living area also has a ceiling fan & it has a tall vaulted ceiling. The loft is accessed by a fold down stair case. We have another single bed up there. It is more of a back up, but there is about 300 feet up there & we put up a privacy wall. So we could accommodates several more if we needed to. However the AC unit would need to be turned on in advance as it is warmer on the second floor. There is also a window that opens close by. We are off grid so there is restricted use of the air conditioning. The cottage is insulated well. So it does hold temperature well as long as we do not cook in the space & heat it up. The outdoor barbecue is strongly encouraged. We also have a rice cooker, induction stove element & a convection oven to help you prepare your meals. We have large old growth trees on the property & there is access to great walking trails that go for kilometers on the ridge of the island. There are many amazing varieties of birds around & Dolphins are often spotted swimming by our pier. We have at least 8 varieties of fruit trees at Mango Bay. In the spring we are often swimming in Avocados. We also have Mangoes, Lemons. Pineapples, Coconuts, Bananas & Plantains. We have a boat captain on site & 2 boats for hire. Two paddle boards, a canoe, water skies & a knee board. We also have a Sub Wing Coral surfer, so our guests can check out the reefs around Isla Parida.More

What a beautiful place to spend a holiday! Shawn was a dream to deal with. The view was spectacular and the weather couldn't have been nicer. Warm calm ocean and dolphins!! Only bad part is we were only there for one week.

Interaction with guests
I work with my guest over the phone to make sure they are making plans that will actually work in Panama. This is not Kansas!! It is not just the language that is different. They have their ways of doing things & most make a lot of sense when you understand how things are done in Panama.. Victor is our on site caretaker, he is also our boat captain. He can help you find fresh fruit on the property or help you dig for clams. He is your guide on the property & can take you an adventure to the marine park.

About the neighbourhood
We are 15 minute ride from either the village of Boca Chica. Or we can pick up & drop guests to the port of Chorcha in the same time. Which is now just 20 minutes outside of David. Thanks to the new paved road!! We can be on the first beach of the marine park in 10 minutes & the most beautiful beach in the park ( Gamez) can be reached in about 30 minutes! The Chiriqui marine park will remind you of Thailand with all the small islands dotting the horizon.
Getting around
Since we are on an island, we must depend on our boats to move our guests around. We have an on site boat captain. So just tell him when you want to do your next adventure. We leave from your own private dock off our grand pier! To go into town for supplies, it is just a matter of sending a text to Jose or one of our taxi driver friends that speak English. They can pick you up at the port of Chorcha.. Then they can help you find whatever you might want in the growing city of David. Or they could pick up the groceries/ beverages & bring them out to Chorcha where Victor can give the money for the service & for the supplies bought for you.
