Saigon Bay House
The Saigon Bay house is an enchanting 3 bedroom hardwood villa, located on the edge of Saigon Bay directly over the water on Isla Colon. This rental home offers its guests an authentic Caribbean experience, surrounded by verdant mangroves and the tranquil Caribbean Sea, only a few minutes away from town.
Casa Saigon Bay can accommodate up to 8 guests. The master bedroom is air conditioned, and equipped with high efficiency fans throughout the rest of the house. For maximum comfort, each bedroom has hotel quality mattresses (queen beds in two rooms, and two single beds in the third room) and direct access to the outer deck space. With 2200 square feet (200 sq. metres approx.) of indoor living space you will be able to enjoy an ample and fully equipped kitchen and dining room, living areas both upstairs and downstairs, a bathtub with rain water towers and utility room with washer and dryer. The house has outdoor deck space on both levels of the house (wrap around balcony upstairs and large patio area downstairs) where you can relax in a hammock and watch the sunset on one side, or the local neighborhood of Saigon on the other side.
A boathouse and a dock are on the property, and upon arrival, arrangements can be made to rent a boat. You are also only a short swim or kayak ride away from the Smithsonian Institute’s dock. Snorkel gear and kayak are included as well in the price. The first trip to the house by boat is included in the rental price but the house can also be accessed by land if you don’t have access to a boat. To access the house by land you will have to make a short walk (5 minutes) down a path (sometimes muddy) and then down a long dock through a small indigenous village (not so clean unfortunately) until you come to the house that is set out by itself over the crystal clear Caribbean waters.
Saigon Bay House is a great choice for families, couples, or groups of friends traveling together. It is very difficult to find a 3 bedroom house over the water, so close to town: it combines the feel of privacy in a caribbean setting, with the convenience of just walking a block and being able to catch a taxi into town. You’ll only be a 5 minute drive away from town (or a 20 minute walk!).
