Why Susan chose Isla Bastimentos
Having traveled to Costa Rica, Equador, The Gallapagos Islands, and then to Bastimentos, we knew we wanted to have a special place where our family could go and see unique species of animals and birds. When we visited Red Frog Beach we knew this was the place, a secluded island with various activities and beautiful beaches.
What makes this Villa unique
A unique item of this villa is its one of the few villa's that has 3 triple pane sliding doors, giving spectacular views of the Caribbean whether you are in the kitchen, dining room, great room or the master bedroom. This villa has an open floor plan. The villa boasts an expansive wrap around patio where you can relax and look out at the Caribbean without being bothered by the weather. Also, it is the only villa on the island with a pool the shape of a sea turtle. Although we are not managed by Red Frog management company we are part of the Red Frog community and have our property manager available for any assistance you may need.

Spent 5 nights at this Villa, it is a fantastic place. Extremely comfortable, has a massive wrap around deck that over looks the ocean. Lots of patio furniture that you can sink into. It has 3 very large bedrooms and a very spacious living/dining room area. Red frog is a lovely island that offers beautiful beaches and food options. the Villa is located on the hill so the golf kart will be needed. The only downside is the Villa is not rented through the Red Frog resort so the resort will not help you at all. But the owner Jerry is very accommodating and responsive for anything you need. would definitely recommend this place and if I ever went back to red frog id stay here again!
Thanks so much for the awesome review. Susan and I are so pleased that you and your Party enjoyed our villa and the island. We are sorry that the Red Frog staff were not as helpful as we would hope. Susan and I continue to work on establishing support through local services.
We would love to have you back!!
Wonderful Getaway Villa
My husband and I had a business trip in Panama City, Panama and decided to tag on a few extra days at Red Frog Resort. Since we waited last minute to try and book at Red Frog Resort they were unavailable to accommodate us for the nights we needed so that was when I decided to check VRBO. When I emailed Susan and Jerry regarding their homes availability for our dates they were very prompt in responding to me. We booked immediately. I had several questions regarding the Villa & how to get there. Susan was so sweet to call us and let us ask her all the questions we had on our list and even suggested some wonderful food spots. The property manager, Jay, who lives at Red Frog resort promptly met us when our water taxi arrived at the marina. He took us on a quick tour of the resort before dropping us off at the house. The Villa was located at the higher level of the resort with wonderful views of the ocean. We left the doors open during the day and evening hours and enjoyed the wonderful breeze. We did use the AC at night and slept soundly. Our first half of each day was enjoyed with a breakfast in and relaxing by the pool. In the afternoons we explored the resort and hung out at the resort pool or on the beach. One day we even saw a young sloth crossing the road. That is something you don't see everyday! What a treat! The Villa was just what we needed for our little quick getaway. We had a fabulous visit. My only complaint is we did not get a long enough stay. Thank you Susan and Jerry for making our visit to Red Frog Resort so effortless and wonderful!
We are so happy you enjoyed your trip and our villa. We love sharing our little piece of paradise. We look forward to having you back!
Susan and Jerry
Susan and Jerry, thank you so much for sharing your lovely haven with us. Our stay at your villa made our Panama experience all the more awesome! The villa was clean and well maintained, the balcony was relaxing and the views were astonishing. We enjoyed the pool at night and discovered several beaches on the island. Our whole party, including two teenagers, had a marvelous and fun time swimming, surfing, searching for sloths and touring Bocas del Toro. Thank you for immediately responding to all of our questions, even while we were there. I highly recommend this property to my friends and/or family members who visit Panama, and will be returning!
We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. We are looking forward to having you back again.
Susan and Jerry
Best Vacation !!
Breathtaking views the moment you walk into this well-appointed luxury "cottage". We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the expansive patio with views of the ocean! The home is immaculate with a HUGE common area that leads directly to the outside patio with views that look like a postcard! This lovely island resort area is traveled thru exclusively by golf cart which only adds to its luxury-charm. Magnificent, bucket-list, luxurious, are some of the words I would use. The Owners responded quickly to any questions we had, and the staff at the resort were friendly and always available. The beach is gorgeous and never crowded! We took the jungle ATV ride (offsite but close!) in Bocas del Torro and it was a blast! I HIGHLY recommend a visit here!
This villa is located in a great location within the Red Frog Beach Resort properties. It has a wonderful view and the pool is well kept and refreshing. Beds are comfortable and interior well decorated.
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed staying at our villa.
Wonderful villa overlooking prisitne beaches
We (my husband and I and our 23 and 25 year old kids) had a beautiful and relaxing week at Jerry and Susan's villa at the Red Frog Resort. The location of the villa is ideal-high enough over the beaches to catch a nice breeze and a plunge pool to cool off, but only a 15 minute walk down to Turtle or Red Frog Beach. We are beach people and these were some of the loveliest and clean beaches and you walk for stretches and see no one else, but if you want company and good drinks-walk down Red Frog to Palmar and NachoMamas. We were here during some rains, so definitely needed some good Teva-like sandals to walk to North Beach (worth the trek) and made walking on the unpaved roads easier to and from the beaches. The staff are very accommodating and other highlights including snorkeling (the staff arranged with Gustavo-he is great) and 2 amazing dive days with Boca Dive Center (very professional). My duaghter and husband also arranged to surf the reef through the surfing place on Red Frog (Chapo) which they said was amazing. Great meal at Firefly (Old Bank-you need to have the front desk rent a boat and driver for you) and Palmar restaurant down Red Fog Beach. Otherwise we rented a grill and had amazing meals on the porch overlooking the ocean. Sad to say that 2 in our group had work they had to do but the internet was excellent and so they were able to mix vacation and work with no problems. WE did not bother with the golf cart rentals but mostly walked or called the front desk for a pick-up without a problem. We shopped in Bocas for food (Islal Colon supermarket for basics and alcohol, the gourmet shop if you want specialties) en route from the airport which was great for meals and snacks without leaving the villa
Thank you for your gracious review. Susan and I are so happy you took advantage of all the Bocas area has to offer. We also enjoy walking the resort instead of renting a golf cart. Hopefully you will be back. Again, Thank You.
