"A bright spacious unit with spectacular view. No problem with dogs or roosters as in previous unit.
Main disappointment was the size of the second bedroom and the separate bathroom. We would not be interested in this unit for a future visit if we were expecting guests. We understand there are full size two bedrooms available.
Unlike our previous unit, the direction of the rising sun made for a very hot unit before we got up in the morning. It was also very windy, which made opening the door sometimes hazardous. These are not things you can do anything about but are relevant.
Lots of opportunity for social interaction through happy hours. Moon parties at the beach club were paticularly enjoyable."

"I stayed at the house while my parents visited my girlfriend and I in Panama. It was a great place to relax. The beach is just on the other side of the river. The views and privacy where fantastic. The ever changing scenery with tidal changes made sitting on the balcony more interesting. The house was very spacious. I would recommend this house to anyone who likes a quiet beach atmosphere. The manager was very helpful and made everything easy. Though I appreciated it the river makes crossing to the beach at high tide wet."

"First, Bocas was gorgeous. Clear water, beautiful beaches (especially zapatillas), unique wildlife, and nice people. A really great place for 20-50 year olds for adventure, warm ocean swimming, and great bars and clubs at night.
The house was one of the nicer that I saw in the area, but it's still an island house. Hot water is inconsistent, no A/C, and the gaps in the windows give the geckos & insects free reign. Be sure to bring bug spray and be sure to sleep under the mosquito nets, and be prepared to be bitten regardless.
If you can get past those things though, this place is an awesome vacation home base. Water taxis pick you up at the dock and all of the captains know where this place is, so it's easy to get home. It's a dollar taxi/person to the main island, and where most bars/restaurants are. I think the best restaurant is walking distance though, the cosmic crab.
The house has snorkel equipment, laundry, kitchen, kayaks, and everything you need to have an amazing time. The management company is very friendly and available, and mostly American or European for easy communication.
All in all, I definitely recommend this place for a family/group. Maybe wear pants and long sleeves at night, but the mild itch of the bites is worth the beauty and relaxed pace of this place."

"I found this place searching on line and to be honest I was very afraid because I had never used this site before. However, John has been great answering all my emails very quickly, Kathy, the property manager in Panama, was very easy to reach and then we had Jose at the site for anything that was needed ( e.g, new propane tank) . We rented both units and there was 10 family members and it was very confortable. Everything that is said about the place is true, very quiet, great neighbors, very clean, fully stocked ( towels linens, pots, pans, utensils, etc )... just bring food. The main road is in bad shape but you just need to go slow. I 100% recommend it and I will be renting from them again."
