"From the moment we arrived we felt like we were at home. The property is a very clean, well equipped, very modern and beautiful home that will make one feel very comfortable right away.
The Hosts, Lynn and Gerry, are very helpful in making you feel welcome as well.
The property the home is on is beautiful and home to several species of Panamanian Birds who come to feed on The Longbons' bananas so you get quite a bird show.
Location is perfect to explore the area.
You do need a car to get around.
We were really impressed and are definitely going to go back to stay there if we go to that area again.
Loved every minute of our stay there. The dogs were a treat!
Thank you Lynn and Gerry for your hospitality."

"We recently spent a few days at Bijao. This condo is very comfortable with beautiful views, good security and lovely grounds. The pools are outstanding. There is a small restaurant on the grounds and some great restaurants nearby. Bijao has one of the best swimming beaches in Panama. We will be back."

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."

"Coste Grande is a cozy villa, very well cared for having all the amenities you will need with a nice touch of decor. From the time of booking, Zhenia the owner provided many helpful tips and information including the name of a trusted transport company. Zhenia was truly a pleasure to deal with and ensured we had everything we needed. Having a keypad lock for this villa is a great feature with no keys to carry around. Though a vehicle is recommended we chose not to rent one and got along just fine. We love to walk so this villa was ideal for us. Bikes would have been a bonus but there are none around to rent. The beach is a two minute walk and there are 3 convenience stores for essentials also within walking distance. Coronado is a short bus ride or taxi ride with everything you need. The back garden/covered patio is a wonderful place to hang out. You will always have a place to go if you need some shade. The pictures and description on VRBO are represented exactly. Thank you for sharing your villa."
