"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."

"This was my first trip not only to Bocas, but to Panama. I travel to Costa Rica often and wanted to see something new. I was hesitant in my search for a hotel or house because I didn't know what to expect and finally booked Bills place. My friend and I were pleasantly surprised just how hospitable Bill was when picking us up at the airport and taking us to a good sized grocery to get supplies. I did all the planning, and my friend was very impressed the minute we stepped for in our condo. Everything we could have possibly needed was there, including a state of the art and fully equipped kitchen, spacious dining area and living room and very large washer and dryer. There was plenty of room for privacy, as my friend and I love our alone time with two ensuite bedrooms with very spacious bathrooms and a separate guest bathroom in the hallway. We really enjoyed our mornings and evening on the porch where we listened to music and drank local beers. Our condo was very clean, neat and had all of the amenities listed. Bill was super helpful with recommendations where to go and swayed us away from some common touristy things like boat tours which I appreciated as I like to live like a local when vacationing. I would highly recommend Burn Brae Plantation to any family member and friends. It was a 5 minutes taxi ride into the hustle and bustle of Town and far enough away to really feel like you are on holiday! I will definitely return!!!"

Spectacular view, Excellent house, good caretakers, OK island
"The views from the deck, living and dining areas are amazing. The sound of the ocean surf is constant and beautiful. The sunsets are gorgeous and calming. The caretaker Antonio was so pleasant to talk with and nice to have nearby. The kitchen is stocked with utensils and pans but not with any food or condiments. Stop at a grocery at bocas town and make sure to get water, salt and spices and oil in addition to food. Once at the house it isn't easy to find supplies - though there is a small grocery next to the water taxi pier. The house was super clean and the ac was so great at night after hot days.
Bastimentos itself is dirty with trash but the side of the island where the house is located is clean and well kept. This house was one of the nicest we saw during our stay. The local folks are nice without being overly welcoming, which is fine. I felt safe walking around day or night. Beautiful beaches, snorkeling and other activities are just boat rides away.
Firefly is a few minutes walk (bring headlamps at night) and worth the price - great food and drinks and the most romantic atmosphere. Also a good place to meet other vacationers.
I was able to wade with some kids in a nearby sand bar but otherwise the surf was too strong and I didn't have water shoes to try swimming in front of the house. Wifi was reliable. Didn't try the television but satellite with English channels is available."

"To begin, we were happily greeted by a very nice couple at the airport. They took us by car to get our golf cart rental, which we highly recommend renting while staying at Casa K. We loved it! Great for exploring! From there they let us follow them to the house. Be sure to wear your seatbelt and follow all driving laws! When we arrived at the house, it was better than described. The sound of the ocean waves crashing was unbelievable. We sat on the front porch and just took in the sight and sounds of the crashing waves. Our stay was very comfortable and Tyson was available and prompt in answering our emails and calls. The house provided a house cell phone with all necessary numbers stored in the phone which was great! This house is in an awesome neighborhood. There were 2 restaurant options in the area. The Paki Point Restaurant a few doors down, was an incredible place to eat and drink in the neighborhood. As well as an outdoor evening pizza place. I bit further down the road is bluff beach which has some restaurants and places on the beach to eat and drink as well. Overall, our stay was amazing! Kristen, the owner, was a great about everything. She answered all my questions and full filed all our requests. We would love to stay here again! Thanks!
