"This was my 60th birthday gift from my husband. What a gift! Clean, quiet, beautiful. My husband couldn't stay out of the water. He snorkeled and found a yellow sea horse hiding in the coral just off the deck. It was a joy to swim, snorkel, relax in the hammock and watch the sea that behaves like a lake. Phillip is a great host; making your stay easy and comfortable. Next time though, I'll take some videos to watch in bed."

"We were visiting Panama to see Family. We wanted something close to them, but the high rises near them seemed less flexible with 3 kids. This was PERFECT. It is located right in the middle of downtown but it is at the base of Ancon Hill which is basically a tropical rainforest. The kids had a backyard, a pool, plenty of space and were able to hike up the mountain every morning to see toucans, monkeys, etc. It allowed us to take day trips and come back at night to cook or BBQ. The staff is very helpful and the other guests were friendly. The accomodations are nothing fancy, but the kitchen is fully stocked and the place is very clean. There are a lot of stairs if that is an issue. There is no laundry in the 4 bedroom unit, but the staff did a lovely job for $5/load."

"Our family of 6 stayed here over spring break and had an amazing time. The beach and pools were fantastic and easy to access with the golf cart. Everything was exactly as described. Tamara was so helpful and great to work with in making the reservation. This location is a good base for excursions to El Valle De Anton for zip lining and to Isla Iguana for snorkeling. Having lived in Panama and visited several beaches along the Pacific coast from Gorgona to Playa Blanca, this beach is one of the best. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return soon!"

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."
