Welcome to Casa Piedra in beautiful Dolphin Bay! This private cove on Isla Cristobal is an eco-luxury resort filled with authentic charm, absolute privacy, and the ability to be truly “off the grid.” The bones of the home are made of volcanic rock and original Teak, all sourced from the property. The exterior of the property offers indoor and outdoor entertaining with hammocks and peaceful, seaside lounging. Casa Piedra is the perfect blend of the subdued and the exotic: you can unwind and unplug or get back to nature - our bay’s dolphins are outgoing and always a joy to watch from the cove (or up close and personal on one of our SUP boards)!

This private cove on Isla Cristobal is an eco-luxury resort filled with authentic charm, absolute privacy, and the ability to be truly “off the grid.” The bones of the home are made of volcanic rock and original Teak, all sourced from the property. The exterior of the property offers indoor and outdoor entertaining with hammocks and peaceful, seaside lounging. Casa Piedra is the perfect blend of the subdued and the exotic: you can unwind and unplug or get back to nature - our bay’s dolphins are outgoing and always a joy to watch from the cove (or up close and personal on one of our SUP boards)! The exclusivity of Casa Piedra doesn’t stop at the hilltop residence and private waterfront cover; our guests are brought to and from the property by boat, an easy 30-minute ride into town whenever needed. Over the course of a 5+ nights stay, you will be offered one, complimentary, round-trip ride into town and back to stock up on provisions and groceries (additional trips may incur a fee). Lastly, we like to alert our guests that because Casa Piedra is located on a hill. There is a flight of stairs to enter and exit the property at all times. Come Inside: This home on its historic land has all of the modern amenities one can think of, while also remaining true to its natural roots, featuring a robust solar energy system, as well as rain catchment for filtered drinking water. To remain on par with the eco-conscious nature of Bocas, we’ve installed a reverse osmosis water filtration system, featuring 14 total filters and ultraviolet light to ensure clean and safe drinking water. Built-out for vacationing, Casa Piedra features a 900 square-foot, screened-in veranda, alongside a gas grill, and a well-stocked kitchen. While the exterior lends itself to cool, bayside breezes, the interior carries that tropical vibe all the way through with live-edge Teak and Laurel wood paneling, responsibly harvested from the 200 acres beyond the home’s immediate premises. Casa Piedra is fully furnished and screened in, so windows can be left open for comfort without worry. The living space has broadband WiFi, television with the latest apps like Netflix, an XBOX gaming console, as well as plenty of DVDs and board games for a well-spent night-in. Casa Piedra has three bedrooms: two queens and a full. All rooms are equipped with plenty of bath and beach towels, as well as fresh linens. The master bedroom has a private bathroom; the other bedrooms share a second bathroom. The home’s most recent addition is our bodega, which is where the water tanks and solar batteries are housed. The property’s laundry facilities are also located in our bodega, which guests are welcome to use. Around Town: This waterfront property has two, private coves with very few neighbors, maximizing your privacy. You may meet Brian and Amy, property managers for Dolphin Bay Hideaway (the second highest ranked B&B in ALL of Central America!), or the indiginous Ngobe people who still reside on their land. We love our indiginous neighbors, and it’s especially incredible to take in a real slice of their life to see the “school bus” that passes the house every weekday morning and afternoon. The children paddle their cayucos (a canoe carved out of a single tree - the local’s typical transport), past Casa Piedra, and off to their one-room schoolhouse that sits nearby. Being surrounded by miles of rainforest, we of course have our groundskeepers, Ocho and Arcenio. The have been known to welcome our guests on walks - long or short - around the property. Blazing trails with machetes in hand, you may meet some of our wild friends along the way: the three-toed sloth, Red Lord parrots, or the black howler monkey, among others. If outdoor water exploration is more your speed, the home offers free, unlimited use of hobie boards, paddle boards, kayaks, and snorkeling gear, located at the boat dock - you can even paddle out early enough to watch the dolphins get their daily feeding! We are nestled close enough for hiking and trailblazing along the archipelago, as well. For guided tours, we are happy to charter a boat and captain for you to explore the nearby islands like Zappatilla or other local destinations including Star Fish Beach, the Bat Caves, Red Frog Beach, and Green Acres Chocolate Farm (Additional fees apply for guided tours). Cultural dining experiences are not far away, either! There are three restaurants in the immediate area, including Dolphin Bay Hideaway, our neighbor! (Be sure to make reservations in advance.) If you’re up for a quick kayak or boat ride, visit No Name Restaurant, open on Fridays and Saturdays, on the next cove over. Hop to the cove beside that for the BEST tacos in the world, or venture a bit further out to visit Rana Azul Pizza. More

First off, I love water and equally love finding places off the beaten track. Casa Piedra Bocas sits on its own private cove (it has three) on famous Dolphin Bay. We hired their local Captain JA who picked us up on a quaint dock in...More

About the neighbourhood
Casa Piedra is a bayfront off grid home on Dolphin Bay. It is situated on 200 acres of pristine rainforest with 80 acres of Cacao trees. This is a boat in boat out property so if you want to go on excursions, our boat captain can be available for you. You can take great hikes or use our kayaks and paddle board to explore this amazing calm bay. Dont be suprised if Dolphins come to visit and the snorkling is amazing. There are also a few local restaurants with great food to check out.
Getting around
You will need to arrange excursions with our boat captain. If you stay longer than 3 days a free trip back to town comes with your stay. There are also water taxi's that can bring you out to the property for a fee.
