Located in the local neighbourhood of Saigon, and within the Over The Water Rentals Property that consists of six houses. The Neighbourhood is rustic, friendly and a real look into how the locals live on the island. If you are looking for an authentic island living experience, then this is the ideal location for you. Take a 20 minute walk into town, or a $1 taxi ride and you'll have all the hustle and bustle of Bocas Town, or enjoy the more relaxing atmosphere of Saigon bay with the lapping waves beneath you.More

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.

Our three-night stay at Purple House One could not have been better. Clean, thoughtfully appointed and right on the water in a real neighborhood. The hosts are delightful and helpful. We were able to book a private boat tour which left right from the property....More

About the neighbourhood
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 provide you with drinking water on the property at a cost of $7 for 6 gallons of water.
Getting around
Local taxi's can be arranged and cost $1 to town and $2 to the airport. Cycling is the most popular mode of transport and bikes can be arranged for you as we rent bikes. Just let us know when you would like them and we will set them aside for you for that day for a reasonable rate
