"I spent a week with family in Playa La Barqueta and Nina's condo is the perfect place to stay. One may expect in a rental that the furnishings will be sub-par but in this condo, that is NOT the case. Each room is wonderfully furnished and uniquely decorated. This condo makes you feel at home. The kitchen has everything you'd want minus the actual food which can be bought at a local grocery store in David and the dishwasher and w/d were very nice to have. We had family staying elsewhere in Playa La Barqueta and they had several problems with their villa (incessant bugs INSIDE the villa; an inoperable washer/dryer; A/C not being efficient enough) but we had none of these problems at the condo. The condo is perfectly situated on the ground floor which is helpful when bringing in luggage and other items, and it is nice with the ocean breezes. Seriously, after playing tennis and also hanging out on the balcony, there must a 10 degree difference which is really refreshing. We visited in late May 2015 which is rainy season, and as we noticed, also a very quiet time of year. We basically had the common areas to ourselves, although be forewarned if you want to play tennis or have access to the sauna (even if there is literally nobody else around), the staff at Las Olas will initially say you must pay a fee (they told us $15/day), but once you provide the owners name they will grant you "access" via a wristband.
There is a lot to do in this area, even during quieter seasons such as late May. We walked on the beach, played tennis, swam in the pool and then spent most of our time elsewhere in and around Boquete. We hiked the highest peak in Panama (Volcan Baru), went ziplining at the Boquete Tree Trek, and did a coffee tour at Cafe Ruiz (with Carlos, an amazing tour guide). Overall, we just wish our stay in the area had been longer, but with that being said, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend Nina's condo or Playa La Barqueta for a nice, quiet, relaxing vacation literally ON the beach."

"This place has all the amenities you could want in Bocas del Toro. The spacious home has two private units on the ground level with a shared patio. The open, modern floor plan was clean and spacious with a full kitchen as well as access to a washer and dryer. We enjoyed the location, which is centered between town (2 miles) and beach bluff. Although bicycles were available, we rented an ATV down the street, which was reasonably priced, making it easy to get around in both day and evenings. Sandi was a gracious host—friendly and welcoming but not intrusive. She has dogs for protection, as do most people owning property in Bocas. We enjoyed occasional cocktails on Sandi’s upper patio, and she helped us arrange several tours, which were highlights of our trip. We enjoyed the jungle feel of the area, including the howler monkeys, without giving up modern amenities."

"My husband and I welcomed in 2015 on a sandy beach in Playa Serena, listening to the waves and watching the incredible fireworks under swaying palm trees. Yes, it was pretty much perfect! We rented Steve & Diane's condo for a month and thoroughly had a great time. All the amenities of home were provided, wi fi, magic jack, cable, dvd's and a well appointed kitchen. The bonus was having almost immediate access to the beach, the long walks every morning kept us in shape and the continuous dips in the ocean and pool were so refreshing. It became a tradition with a few of us to bring cocktails and appies and meet on the beach at 5:30 for the sunset, not to hard to take. Shopping and restaurants are only a 10 minute car ride and we discovered some good local spots as well, check out the fish market in Gorgona, excellent sea bass and shrimp. Spectacular views abound, day trips to Valle, Panama City and other attractions are very convenient. If you are looking for a relaxing, get-away-from-it-all spot, this is it."

"This property is more than a house...it has it all!!! If you want to be a little away from the noise and the craziness of the town when it gets crowded but be close enough to ride your bike there for groceries or dinner then this is the perfect location. Plus you are within a property that is quiet, peaceful, has horses, and has a WATERSLIDE!!, and you can take nice walks among the property and feel like you are in the jungle, and then walk a few minutes and you are on a beautiful beach! What is not to love! Plus the inside is appointed with gorgeous cabinets, appliances, furniture, big screen tv and oh so comfortable beds!!! Love this property so much we are buying a lot and building our own home here. So warning do not come here unless you are ok with ending up wanting to stay forever! Bill and Caitlin the owners are wonderful..great decision to rent this place! Made wonderful life time friends."
