Ginger's Beach House is a self-contained two-bedroom oceanfront house perched high above the waves on the breezy ocean side of Isla Bastimentos. It's fully equipped with a kitchen with all the essentials, plenty of quality linens, and a washing machine. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves just below, entertain on your huge private deck with 180-degree ocean views, or relax in any of the comfortably furnished and artfully decorated indoor spaces.
This is a very artsy, self-contained, two-bedroom beach house right on the ocean, designed and decorated with love. The house is perched high so you can enjoy lovely breezes and the best view in Bastimentos. Sunsets are amazing here and are different every night. It has a huge porch with plenty of space for entertaining, including a table, two chairs, a loveseat, and two hammocks for lounging.
The house is fully stocked with a full kitchen, dishes, and high-quality linens to ensure a comfortable stay with all the essentials, including a washing machine and a line for drying clothes in the ocean breeze.
There is a surf break right in front of the house, so if you surf or just like sleeping to the sound of waves, this is the place for you. The beach out front is rocky rather than sandy, which makes for good sea glass hunting and waves. There are sandy swimming beaches within walking distance as well as several more a short water taxi away. There is also excellent snorkeling in the channel in front of the house.
Within a 5-minute walk, you'll find several restaurants, bars, small shops, and the main water taxi dock from which you can get anywhere in Bocas for $3-5.
You have full run of one of the 2 houses on this gated property right on the ocean. Enjoy your privacy, while at the same time we are right next door if you need anything at all.

We live in the house right next door.
We can help you with tours for diving, snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, and hiking as well as with recommendations for restaurants and help negotiating tour prices.
We would like your stay to be as pleasant as possible, so we are always available if you need anything, but we are also very good at minding our own business if you prefer your privacy.
-- The thing with kids is the house is very high up and we fear a child could fall but children 12 and over are OK. You know your child's limitations.
-- This house is chill. You're on vacation. Have your drinks. We don't mind if you smoke on your patio. There is such a good breeze here it just blows the smoke away.
-- The property is very secure with a 7' fence and entry gates with deadbolt locks. We ask that you lock your gate when you leave, just to be safe.
We are a young couple from the US (Atlanta and all over California) who have been living on Bastimentos for three years. We are lucky enough to be hosting a beautiful, custom-built home owned by another expat, Ginger, who has been part of the community for thirteen years.
