Overview

About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our Ocean front one Bedroom offers a very cozy and stylish island living opportunity. This place is close to all but is very private with incredible water views on distant landscape. There is a large terrace with hammock and astonishing sunset sea views. The construction is new and made of a local hard wood with a very attractive natural finish, all is new and modern in the place and it is very comfortable.

The apartment features one separate bedroom, including a 1 a Queen size bed with A/C, TV and a cabinet, one full bathroom; a living room with an eat-in kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a living spaces including dinning area, a sitting area with a sofa bed which turns into a comfortable double bed. The living room open to a large terrace over the water with outdoor furniture, including a long chair and a hammock, all with design furniture.

From your terrace you have direct access to the water, it is great for an afternoon swim. Also boat can drop you there and pick you up directly from your Bocas place.

Should you need a covered place for your boat, we have that too. Please contact us about this.

The apartment is conveniently located right over the water and near the center of the town.

This location is close to everything but in a calm area of the town. There is a fine grocery store at less than 50 feet, all the boat operators and restaurants are right there too. All is at a walking distance. The nice thing is that it is easy to forget that you are in town when you are looking from your terrace to the sea. The apartment is completely furnished and fully equipped (linen, towels, kitchen ware, TV and high speed internet). The building is secured with a electronic alarm system against fire and robbery.

Should you need more space (or less) we have other properties at different rate to rent at the same location.

About The Owner

I have been attracted by Bocas and this incredible location with great sea view and beautiful sunset. It took me many years to build this property of which I am very proud, as it is a very unique place in Bocas.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2009

Why The Owner chose Bocas del Toro

I love Bocas del Toro, which is a very charming Caribbean little town and is the perfect starting point to discover all the natural wonders that the archipelago de Bocas Del Toro has to offer. From Panama City, it is easily reached by a one hour flight.

What makes this apartment unique

This place offers a good heaven from the town of Bocas. The terrace is large and private and the water views are the best. And it is so nice that when you want to refresh, you can just get in the water from your own terrace.

M&M Residencias, Bocas Town

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at M&M Residencias from May 4-May 27th. I rented the 2 bedroom apartment upstairs. It was absolutely perfect. Great location and exceptional staff.

Lily and Laydi took great care of us during our visit. They were amazing young ladies that were very informative and attentive without bothering us during our vacation. Laydi cleaned our apartment and washed our clothes as needed and at our request and did a fantastic job!!! Lily supported us with information with where to go and how to go on all aspects of Bocas Del Toro.

The views from the apartment were AMAZING!! The apartment was very comfortable, nice and cool.

Bathrooms clean and very functional. Kitchen had everything one could need while on vacation.

It was one of the best vacation I've been on and I will be returning hopefully very soon.

Thank you Michel, Lily and Laydi.....what a GREAT time!!!!!!

Sincerely,

Jesse

Do not stay here

  • 1 of 5

We stayed in the 1 bedroom apt facing the water. I would not recommend this place to anyone. In fact I would advise to stay away. For the price it is shabby, very noisy, and poorly equipped. It is badly lit and you need a flashlight to see. It is more like a tenement house than a getaway!

The kitchen is stocked like a bad college dorm room. Fridge, stove, toaster and blender are good but no microwave. You can't cook at night because there is not enough light and the pots pans, utensils etc are pitiful. The TV is a big very old clunker with lousy sound and a worse picture. The internet is mostly unavailable and the manager will tell you that is the way it is in Bocas but we went a few doors up the street to a nice hotel and got great internet every time.

There are no services which means no cleaning, no change of towels or sheets. We stayed for a month and finally figured out that only by going through the manager and by giving him 10 bucks could we have the place minimally cleaned. We also needed to follow the same protocol (minus the 10 bucks)to get sheets and towels. When the owner is there yiu have to go through him for just about everything. His assistant is gracious but she has to get his permission as well. He controls everything. We had to borrow the broom to sweep our place. Like I said, very poorly equipped. The bathroom is tiny with a good shower but if you look at the window grate above the toilet you will see it is caked with dirt.....a real nod to uncleanliness.

The 1 bedroom we stayed in is below the 3 bedroom which usually has many people staying in it. Their living space was directly above our bedroom in this unit. The place is poorly built with nothing but boards between the apartments So we heard noise constantly from the apartment above ... 2 am poker games, normal conversation echoing down the stairway next to us made it sound like the neighbours were living with us. Sleep is disturbed by neighbours, sometimes loud music, boats roaring by and the loud air conditioner ... Usually three but sometimes all 4 conspire to have you looking for earplugs just to get some sleep, and this goes on day and night. The Ac is only in the bedroom and is loud but it helps to deafen the sounds from upstairs and from the very loud band two doors down which plays from 9 to 11pm, 3 nights a week. The bed is reasonably comfortable and the pillows are hard as rocks. You get a sheet over the mattress, a top sheet and 2 pillows that's it!

Owner's Response: Thank you for all the remarks. This is always very helpful as we do everything we can in order to improve the level of services and the comfort of our renters. It is true that Bocas town is not always a quiet place; it is rather lively, especially during the high season. M&M’s Residencias is truly a quieter place compared to the ones located in the center of the town but it is not always without some noise. Also, since we are facing on the beautiful water front of Bocas, we do have to deal with the occasional passing boats that use the water-way between the islands. Note that it is normally very rare that boats run after dark. Being in town at the M&M’s Residencias allows you the convenience of being close to all the restaurants and shops as well as the feeling of being outside of the crowd when you are looking at the panoramic water views. Please note that during the low season, there are much less noise and activity in Bocas. In keeping with Bocas traditional Caribbean architecture, we are very proud to have built our houses out of wood instead of concrete; however, the drawback is sometimes poor soundproofing which, in the case of the M&M’s Residencias, is not worst than in any other wooden structures in Bocas. However, we have decided to improve the comfort of our apartment by adding acoustic isolation to the separating wall between our two sea front apartments and by installing a floating parquet in the apartment located on the 2nd floor for the benefit of the dwellers of the lower apartments. This work will be finished as early as this coming summer. Daily cleaning of the apartment is not included in our rates and has never been advertised as such. Furthermore we do offer cleaning upon request at a very reasonably low fee. Neither the replacement of the sheet and towels is included in our monthly rental, however we did it at no extra cost every time it was requested. Since receiving this comment, we have made many improvements to our services and equipment in the apartments. For example, new orthopedic mattresses, new Flat Screen TVs , new micro wave, new lights and two new split A/C units have been installed in the apartments. We have replaced our staff to provide better care and assistance to our guests. Our cleaning person is much better trained and does her job with a lo a lot of care. The M&M’s apartments are truly unique and beautiful for their close access to the town amenities but best of all being on the water with spectacular views.
