About Craig

BC's owners are an adventurous high school English teacher and award-winning property manager who decided that waiting until retirement to live out their dream was too long to wait. Over the course of three years they traveled Panama to find the perfect location for BC's Beach House and can't wait to share it with you.

Craig purchased this house in 2011

Why Craig chose Panama

Over three years and five trips to Panama, we've visited just about every part of the country. While Panama as a whole is stunning, it is our experience that Chiriqui Province is by far the most beautiful and inviting place of all. In a matter of an hour's drive from BC's you can find yourself hiking the mountains, snorkeling in the ocean, kayaking the mangroves, tasting coffee on the plantations... Chiriqui has it all.

What makes this house unique

The single most important part of your stay at BC's Beach House is our all-inclusive amenities and attention to detail. There are many wonderful beach houses, but no others include transportation to and from the airport, three delicious meals a day, drinks, snacks, and advice on excursions in the area. What's worse is that you never know exactly how much money to bring or how much you'll end of spending. At BC's Beach House we can pretty well calculate your vacation down to the penny and will never leave you with any surprise expenses.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Now that we are back home, we would like to thank you very much again for the wonderful hospitality you both have shown us! All the details, from the arrangements to accommodate our little one (the baby shampoo, baby food, crib, high chair, etc.) to your wonderful tomato soup!! Your place is

wonderful and we will highly recommend it.

What an experience! Felt like laying by the pool all day, Craig was right there with amazing food and drinks. Wanted to zipline in Boquete, Bill and Craig drove us up into the mountains. They also hooked us up with a local fisherman that took us fishing in the mangroves then cooked up the fish we caught for dinner! Location is amazing, house is amazing. Best hosts you could find, contact these guys if you're going to Panama.

Honeymoon in Panama

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for our honeymoon. We got in really late Monday (technically it was Tuesday morning) but that wasn't an issue for Craig - he still made us feel welcome even at 2am! The house itself is beautiful and just like being at home except better. We got to wake up to a view of the ocean and spend every day in the pool. The food that we were given was amazing - each meal was a little different so we never got bored and were definitely never hungry! I really appreciated when Craig would bring us snacks on the couple of days when we just swam and drank in the sun all day.

We wanted to do a few excursions and Craig had some great suggestions and was extremely helpful in arranging them! We definitely would not have been able to do it without him. When one of the things we wanted to do wasn't available, he arranged a different informal tour with one of the guys he knows. We got to go out and see the mangroves, monkeys, and do some fishing. It was a great experience.

Overall this place was great - very welcoming, beautiful, relaxing, and fun. Everything was so simple to arrange/schedule and do and we loved spending our days just being lazy and watching the ocean from the pool. It was the perfect place to relax after the craziness of a wedding!

Bill & Craig (BC) have got it right!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we arrived, Craig & Bill did it right. This is our first time a VRBO property came with meals and it was a great bonus. Just the perfect amount of attention and privacy for a spectacular time on the Pacific Ocean. Steps away from a beautiful, long beach with amazing waves and sunsets. Oh, and having lunch at the swim up bar is a must!

Owner's Response: Thank you Jamie. We enjoyed having all of you stay here at BC's. We enjoyed getting to know everyone and hope you stay in touch. We want to see photos of your home once it is finished. I hope the snow is gone and things are progressing well for the two of you. Take Care, Craig and Bill

Great Beach Hide-Away

  • 5 of 5

I can only recommend the BC Beach House!

Located at a marvelous, 15 mile long great black sand beach, nice helpful owners and good food. The location is a little bit off the beaten track, but within 30 minutes you are in David or a little more than an hour in Boquete with all their activity / adventure offerings.

We had the whole house to us (which they always do) and had the master bedroom with en-suite walking wardrobe and a large bathroom. There is a nice pool, spacious living room and terrace. We did also very much appreciate the free wi-fi to catch up with news from back home and free Netflix and flat-screen tv.

If you want to spend a couple of relaxing days at your 'own' private beach house you will be happy at BC's.

If the pictures seem too good to be true, it is actually BETTER!!! It is about 15 miles from David in a very secure, gated community. . The meals are fantastic. The ocean is just steps away. It was great to sleep all night listening to the waves with the sliding doors open . We never used air conditioning at night. You might need air conditioning for a siesta. Craig arranged for us to ride horses on the beach . There is plenty of shade next to the pool to read, relax or have a cold drink. We enjoyed traveling to David, Boquete and Volcan. Can't wait to go back again! Caig and Bill are fantastic hosts.

BC's Beach House was the best place we've ever stayed! Everything we ever wanted and needed was at your finger tips. We never felt so spoiled. Food, drink, sunshine, sunrises,sunsets, private pool, beach, privacy, relaxation and the most gracious hosts ever! Oh and Panama was good too! Paradise is the best way to describe our latest Adventure. Can't wait to go back!
