Interaction with guests
Our house is located right next door, so you are just easy shout out away, but each house has it's own deck for private relaxation. If you need help, we'll be available, but if you are looking to get away from it all, you'll hardly notice us at all.

About the neighborhood
located on the outskirts of bocas town, in saigon bay.
the lively little neighborhood developed in the past 5 years. life takes place on a small sidewalk threw the community that leads right to the beach. you gonna get offered a snow cone or raspadura get the chance to buy lotterie tickets, meet people, or just watch the kids fish or play in the bay.
sitting on your porch you get to watch the dolphins swim by, buy fish or lobster from local divers paddling by in their dugouts, or simply enjoy your sundowner as the sun dips in the ocean ;-)
taxis are quiet cheap out to saigon 0.50cents per person or a short walk from main street about 10-15 min.
there are little stores on the corner, laundromats close by, and all along the beach you´ll find good local restaurants &bars.
Getting around
Taxi's, bicycles and by foot are the most popular transportation methods on the main island. If you are looking to visit the other islands, there are water taxi depots available in town, but we can also arrange for boat tours right from our very own dock.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Bocas del Toro International Airport: 1.2 mi
The easiest way to our property is by taxi. We are located a 20 minute walk from the center of town in a neighborhood called Saigon Bay. Taxi from town costs $1 per person and from the airport it costs $2 per person.

Just tell the driver to drop you off at 'Saigon Adentro, segunda entrada, la casa de Claudia'. Our houses are behind a brightly painted wooden fence with a red surfboard out front with Over The Water Rentals on it.

As our houses are located over the water, there is limited parking outside the property in the neighborhood. Contact us beforehand to discuss the parking options before booking.
