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 breeze.
The bathroom and showers were nice and clean and the water stayed hot. The kitchen with two full size refridgerators was cool and helped when we wanted to just stay in and cook our own food some nights. The wireless is fast enough to stream music and reached all the way out onto the dock.
The owners were building a second bathroom and a shade canopy to go on the dock so the property is just getting better.
We filmed this little video while we were there which shows off pretty much the whole property.
Great for large parties wanting a semi private space. I say semi private because the owners store their boat on the dock at the back of the property and walked through a few times. Also some children from another island got a ride to and from school via this dock so there were a pair of kids coming through in the morning and evening. Not a bog deal.

Casitas are painted in bright colors and sleep a total of 8 people (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. ... more less
