Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro: Our family has always loved the tropics. We would travel the Caribbean to escape the cold Wisconsin winters. Stumbling across Bocas Del Toro, Panama, we fell in love with this Archipelago of islands. Crystal clear, calm waters on the inside of the islands make it great for snorkeling, kayaking and water sports. Waves on the outside make it a world class surf spot. The beautiful, warm friendly people enticed us to make this place our home. We found this unique piece of beachfront land with a warm, soft, sand beach in front and palm trees reaching for the sun. Without barely thinking we bought it and constructed own beautiful Villa.

The Unique Benefits at this House: It is peaceful and quiet filled with the sounds of nature. We are nestled in a tropical garden that is fringed with coconut filled palm trees, and tropical fruits and flowers. The views of the ocean are breathtaking at all times of the year. Star filled nights or a full moon shining across the ocean and lighting the pool for a night swim make this place a unique vacation spot. Each day will await you with a new adventure. Tours to the Zapatilla National park, Dolphins Bay, Red Frog Beach or Bird Island to name only a few. Walk to the nearby Botanical Gardens or bike to the Caves. Explore the ocean in front of the Villa using the house kayaks or surf at some world class surf spots only 5 minutes from your door. Snorkel or dive some of the most beautiful reefs in the Caribbean sea or take a boat trip to the outer waters for some deep sea fishing. This will truly be a vacation that you will not find anywhere else.

About Connor Cottrell

We enjoy the sun, ocean, beach and all the activities that go with it. So, we decided to trade in dreary winters for a life on the beach. We love waking up to the quiet sounds of the jungle, the monkeys, parrots and birds of the tropics and going to sleep to the relaxing sound of the waves lapping on the beach . We also enjoy people from all over the world, and the blend of cultures in the islands makes this a wonderful experience. All these things have shared in bringing our family to Bocas Del Toro, Panama and to make it our home. We are looking forward to sharing the dream with you!

The location for us was perfect, on a quiet beach but easily accessible to town on the bikes provided. We loved relaxing in our private pool and using the bbq to cook up dinner on the days we were too lazy to go to town. The Cottrell's were wonderful, very friendly and helpful when needed but also left us to enjoy our stay.

                                                                        We really did feel spoilt getting to stay somewhere so amazing and will definitely be back again!

                                                                        Wonderful Honeymoon!

                                                                        Sarah A.

                                                                        Steve and Angie made their home feel like ours! The perfect amount of privacy as well as them being available when needed. They were extremely helpful with recommendation, and provided us with a binder of information for places to go to eat and things to do. Initially we were taking Taxi's into town, but we soon realized the bikes provided got us from point A to B just as well. Close to town, but far enough from the "hustle and bustle". In the opposite direction from town you run into beautiful beaches, and Skully's (which quickly became our "go to" hang out spot).

                                                                        Other things we did: Maria came right to the house and did massages outside by the pool. Angie's son Wes is the best tour guide. We had a great time with him, and he was fun to be with all day. The best snorkeling we did our entire stay was with him. We had a great time on a Catamaran boat tour to Starfish beach. The bookstore was a great bar to go to for some live music. Filthy Friday was a fun adventure our first day there (not usually our sort of thing but we had to try it while in Bocas!). An island hopping party which we met many friends! Our favorite restaurants we tried in town were Om, and Azul. We can't wait to go back with Steve and Angie! Bocas is a hidden gem, and their place is perfection with a great price!

                                                                        Great location and great hosts!!

                                                                        My husband and I are So happy with our stay here, we truly couldn’t have asked for a better set up. We had total privacy yet the recommendations and suggestions from a wonderful family right at our fingertips! Best of both worlds! The amenities that Villa paraiso offers are better than all inclusive hotels! Bikes, private pool, kayaks, ping pong tables, games, books, beach front access, etc, life is good when you are staying here. I gotta also say that I was so impressed by the cleanliness of the room that I didn’t feel the need to break out the Clorox wipes I have learned to travel with. First time ever so that says a lot in my books! On another note please go on a boat trip with Wesley. If you don’t you will never know what you’ve missed but trust me when I say you will be doing yourself a great disservice if you don’t jump on the opportunity to do so! He’s absolutely great and so are the islands around here.

The best part was that Steve put us in touch with Jose Mora in Panama City who took us from the local airport (Albrook) to the International airport via the old city. He kept our suitcases for 4 hours while we explored the old city and picked us up again after our walking tour.

                                                                        Owner's Response:

                                                                        John F.

The living room and dining room were outside on a covered patio overlooking the pool and ocean. Outstanding getaway spot and launching pad to explore Bocas. The space was very clean and well maintained. The kitchenette is just that, but perfectly functional for light simple cooking. There is also an outdoor gas grill if you are ambitious.

                                                                        Overall it was outstanding and we would definitely stay here again.
