Very basic guest house, that is to say: no frills or overdoing anything, but practical and really all you need. The buildings have bright colours, which gives it a real happy atmosphere. At a lovely spot with very nice people running it, close to shops...More

By the Sea Casitas is really quite nice. The only amenity that it it missing is A/C but that was not really a problem for us. The cabanas all have big shutters on the windows which can be opened and they provide a nice ocean...More

About
Description
By the Sea Casitas is a traditional Bocas syle guest-house featuring three simple yet yet everything you need, individual casitas on the water. Casitas are painted in bright colors and sleep a total of 8 people ...More (purple sleeps 4 with 4 twin beds, orange 2 in a double bed and yellow has a king sized bed). They are paired with an ex-boathouse( now the main house) over the water that is home to a shared living room and fully equipped kitchen for guests to use at their leisure. Hammocks on the over-the-water dock become a place to hang out and enjoy the North side of Isla Colon (the breezy side).2 Hot water showers and private bathrooms complete the home. It is also walking distance to town or boat drivers can pick you up right off our dock.We have a swim ladder when you want to swim out front.Friendly owners are around the property every day and spa clients may occasionally need to use one of the bathrooms. If traveling in a group this is an ideal place to stay because you can take over the whole space! Spa services available if you want to spoil your self. Less

Hi Camille, We have availability at that time but we don't rent the casitas separately. You rent all three bedrooms and the main house. These share 2 bathrooms and 2 showers. The cost is $220 per night. Please let me know... More
