Enjoy your own tropical garden terrace at the Purple House 2 - Over The Water Rentals. Your home away from home in paradise. Views of the bay can be enjoyed from the communal deck or wind down on yr own covered garden deck with couch, dining table & hammocks. We have snorkel gear, kayaks & SUP's for free. And bikes for rent . Located close to town/airport in a quiet rustic neighborhood. 2 double bedrooms, hot water shower, handmade organic toiletries, fully equipped kitchen and hi speed wifi

The space
The Purple House 2 is alongside Purple House 1 and are a mirror of each other. Together they can be opened up into one large home. Each is rented separately or you can rent them both together.

Purple House Two has two bedrooms upstairs with the master bedroom having a walk in wardrobe. Both bedrooms have air-conditioning and fans. Downstairs you will find the kitchen with dining table for indoor eating. There is also a pantry for food and luggage storage and a large sized bathroom with hot water shower. To the rear of the property is a garden whilst to the front is a very large covered relaxation deck built over the water with ample dining and lounging space within a tropical garden setting.

The Purple houses do not have unobstructed views of the bay as they are located behind the Orange house, but there are view decks open for our guests to relax on, enjoy the sunsets and take in the views.

The kitchen is equipped with a large fridge/freezer and a 4 burner stove and oven. Large double doors lead out onto the outside terrace which has a dining table and chairs, a large lounger as well as the all important hammocks. The large outdoor deck is covered by a high roof for protection from the sun whilst allowing for the cool breezes to pass through.

We also have kayaks on the property which are available for guests to make use of free of charge along with SUP's (free), bikes (for rent) to use and snorkel gear(free). Come and enjoy all the toys we have right from the deck. And if you want to learn to surf, we have surfboards to rent too.

If Purple House Two is booked up, check the dates for Purple House One or contact us for possible other options we might have. As houses in our neighborhood are very close to each other, we kindly request that no outside guests are invited onto the property after 10pm at night and that our guests be considerate of neighbors and other guests when returning home after a night out.

There are a total of 5 houses on the property, each with their own private areas as well as some communal areas. Have the privacy of your own home along with communal deck areas, so with the added benefit of meeting like minded travelers should you wish to, or not :-)

Because of the uniqueness and beautiful environment of the property being built over the water. As you will be living directly over the water with limited barriers this home can be unsafe for children under 12 years old.

House Rules:-
1. We are very much involved in the recycling that happens here on the island and kindly request our quests to be mindful of this also. This would mean taking further steps in separating and preparing recycling.

2. Please no outside guests on the property without our permission to ensure that all our guests are comfortable during their stay. During covid we request no guests at all.

3. And no entertaining and loud noise after 10pm at night. Our property is not for parties or gatherings due to the houses being close to each other in the neighborhood. We would love for you to come and relax and enjoy the tranquility of the bay with us.

4. Here on the island it is not recommended to drink the main water supply, so as a step to reducing our plastic bottle usage we have 5 gallon purified water containers available.

5. As another step to preserving the beautiful environment we live in, it is requested that electrical supplies such as, ac units, fans and wall plugs be turned off when leaving the property.

Where you’ll be

Bocas del Toro Province, Bocas del Toro, Panama

Saigon Bay is located just 15 minutes walk from town or a quick $1 taxi ride. This is a local third world neighbourhood, so is colorful, rustic, authentic, and a lot less touristy and as a result, not as well kept as resort locations around the islands. If you want to experience the island as the locals do, then this is the location for you. Due to the garbage issue on the islands, we ask all our guests to recycle in order to reduce our own personal footprint.

There is a local supermarket a few minutes walk from the house where basics can be purchased. We can supply drinking water in 6 gallon bottles on the property so you don't have to worry about carrying heavy water containers home.

During your stay

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.
