"I spent a most relaxing week alone in this wonderful home. Clean, comfortable (good bed in master bedroom), good location and a very diligent caretaker, Javiar, who speaks English very well. This alone is worth a "star" to those who have limited Spanish skills. The "Big Creek" area, where the home is located, is the perfect distance from town---only 5 minutes away in a taxi. You don't need to call a taxi; just start walking on the main road (2 minutes walk from house) and one will come along. This area is beautiful for walking--lovely beaches and amazing, bountiful flora. (And yes, you frequently hear the "Howlers"--a most ferocious sound from such small monkeys!!) An added plus is that there is a pretty overwater restaurant within walking distance (Tortuga Resort).
I never used the air-con as there are adequate windows and many ceiling fans to "catch" the cooling sea breeze. The elevated deck/outdoor living room is BUG FREE!! Again, bless those ceiling fans! The master bedroom has excellent air ventilation and a good mattress, insuring a good night's sleep. The kitchen is well stocked with everything needed (except condiments and spices)--good quality appliances in proper working order. Honestly, this house is SO comfortable that you might have trouble making yourself go explore!"

"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."

"Ann & Bob we would like to thank you for your hospitality, it was nice to arrive there after a long drive from Panama City & find the fridge stocked + cold refreshments.
Ann & Bob where very helpful to advice us on places for sightseeing. The home is beautiful, the views from the deck are amazing & having coffee in the morning listening to the Howler Monkeys was great. There are very good restaurants at Boca Chica & David, we cant add much more that hasn't been said in all the other reviews."

"This house was more than we could have even imagined. It felt as though we were the only people on the island! The beach is gorgeous, the yard is incredible, everything about the property makes it the perfect get away. Dave was a wonderful host and made sure our visit was great. He showed us the best grocery store and an amazing fish market to get food at. We had ATVs while we were there which made getting to and from places nice. I wish we could have stayed longer and spent a few more days just isolated at the house on the beach enjoying the surroundings. We were able to see monkeys, sloths, crabs, beautiful birds and more just at the house! Definitely coming back and staying here again!"
