Our villa backs up to an emerald, rainforest canyon and is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac. It features a private plunge pool, natural coral patio and two guest suites each with private bath with natural stone flooring and walls. Cool travertine tile flooring is underfoot in all areas and the open floor plan upstairs features a modern kitchen with tasteful granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and maple cabinetry (also in both guest suite bathrooms). The entry level features a great room with kitchen, hardwood dining table (with seating for six) and a seating area featuring a Bose entertainment system and flat-screen TV with cable.
Enjoy a cup of tea or coffee on the balconies and listen to the tropical birdsongs at dusk or dawn. There is a large upstairs deck off the great room and both downstairs guest suites have sliders that open to a huge wooden deck that also faces the rainforest canopy. Access to the pool is easy from the downstairs wooden staircase or the main level. We feel that this is one of the finest residences in the Red Frog Resort because of its cozy, secluded rainforest view, efficient floor plan, quiet cul-de-sac location. This vacation home is in the Los Altos neighborhood of the Resort which has the lowest density of homes with almost no through traffic while enjoying spectacular Caribbean views right out the front door (the great room and front yard feature filtered Caribbean views). The villa is an easy five-minute cart ride (or fifteen minute walk) to the popular Red Frog Beach with its beach club, activity center and Punta Lava Bar and Grill. The more secluded Turtle Beach is also within walking distance.
The incredible Bastimentos Sky Zipline Canopy tour is located within the resort and Kayukos Island Lounge and Restaurant features a mellow nightlife vibe and inexpensive meals. The lounge area is a great place to originate boat tours to Zapatilla Keys, Crawl Key, Dolphin Bay and other far-flung adventure spots. The Red Frog Express Shuttle provides quick water transport to Bocas Town (10 minutes) four times daily. Transport within the resort is available from Resort Management with sufficient notice for a fee. Since the villa is located at the Red Frog Beach Resort, water sport activities (kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding, snorkeling) or nature based activities (hiking, beachcombing) are readily available on location.
No trip to the resort is complete without the 25-minute walk to Polo (North Beach), which features white sand beaches adjacent to one of the most scenic coral reefs in the archipelago. Great for protected swimming and snorkeling. More ambitious visitors can make the 3-hour round trip hike to Playa Larga in the Bastimentos National Marine Park. These trips can originate right out your front door. Both beaches are hawksbill and leatherback turtle nesting grounds and can be seen during turtle nesting season with a guide. There are also volunteer opportunities.
Explore all that resort has to offer on foot or rent a golf cart (based on availability). We find that walking allows you to take in the natural beauty and see things you normally wouldn't in this amazing environment.

this place is amazing. the pictures do not do it justice. the rainforest view from the back is serene. grounds are manicured and landscaped. we went with out 10 yr old daughter and 8 year old son and there are more than enough activites to keep them both very entertained. The red frog beach can easily hold its own against the best beaches in the world. soft sand, warm water, with nice wave action. some of the best times were finding the sloths, monkeys, crabs, and etc as we ventured the grounds and hiking paths. well worth looking at this property

Beautiful tropical getaway
Beautiful tropical getaway
My husband, adult daughter, and myself stay at this villa in mid-January, 2011. It is as beautiful as the pictures! We were looking for a place away from it all near a good beach, and this place fit the bill perfectly. The staff at the villas is fantastic, and will gladly help you with your every question or need. The villa itself is beautifully appointed and contains all that you will need to complete your stay. We rented a golf cart for our stay, and we were very happy to have it, as the beach and the marina are a fair distance. Another plus was the spa right down the road. Sara Beth teaches a variety of classes (yoga, pilates), and gives a very good massage. The ONLY negative was the extensive construction going on at the villa next door. It was only an annoyance out by the villa's pool (the workers couldn't keep their eyes off of my daughter!). Once inside the villa, the noise and annoyances are not a problem. I would expect the next villa will be completely finished in the near future. As a additional benefit, the owner, Diem, is very nice and will answer any questions you might have via e-mail prior to your trip. He gave us helpful hints. This is a good choice if you are looking for great beach getaway! The city of Bocas is only a 10 minute boat ride away, and it is not difficult to get a ride, but it is pricey, especially at night ($10 per person). This is a great place to relax!!

Why the Owner Chose Red Frog Beach:
We felt that our vacation home is in the best location in the Bocas del Toro region. The home is within walking distance of Red Frog Beach (one of the best beaches in this area) and you can take advantage of all the amenities of the resort. There is a bar and grill down by the beach, restaurant, zip line, an abundance of hiking, and 5 beaches on Isla Bastimentos. The house is only a ten minute boat ride away from the town of Bocas, so you can enjoy the nightlife in Bocas but come back to peace and tranquility.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our villa is beautifully furnished and has all the modern conveniences including wi-fi. up to 5 ZIP LINE PASSES ($250 value)INCLUDED: Included in the rental are 5 passes to the Bastimentos Canopy Tour during your stay. This canopy tour takes advantage of the elevated island terrain where several peaks and ridges allow for zipline descents through native rainforest. Features: * 7 tree-based island ziplines * A ropes course with 4 features * Tarzan swing * Swaying suspended log-bridge * Traversable canopy net * High platform rappel. Bastimentos Sky Zipline Canopy Tour is a sustainable, eco-friendly adventure that offers the visitor full immersion to the rainforest canopy without disrupting the surrounding delicate ecology on Isla Bastimentos.
