Poli Rodriguez purchased this House in 2011
Why Poli Rodriguez chose Bocas del Toro Province
Amazing archipelago in Caribbean, special and unforgettable place in Central America. Rich nature, sea life around, clear and clean waters, quiet and peaceful area, close enough to town, but out of noise and touristic places. Cozy and spacious house. Amazing mountains and ocean views.
What makes this House unique
Paraiso Escondido has been created from the desire of having a peaceful life integrated with nature. Located in a tranquil spot in the Caribbean sea, lush, unspoiled and charming. A place full of surprises and beauty. The dream of being at sea is a unique feeling. We prioritize the proper attention and dedication to the guests by their owners and staff. A place where everyone enjoys an excellent stay in Bocas del Toro. Get surprised by dolphins swimming just in front of the house and watch different beautiful fishes at the coral reef few steps of the house. Unforgettable views 360 degrees. The best over the water house in town. The original Yellow/Blue house from Big Bight, Isla Colon. We would love to help you to decide if this house and location are the best for you and your family or friends.

Great view but not meant for vacations with kids
The view was spectacular and the house was very clean. However, the beds were uncomfortable and there was no air-conditioner in the home. Also, the water to the home is turned off every night at 10pm. You were limited on activities that you could do based on the scheduled departure and return times to the home. In my opinion, it is not meant for active families who want to travel around the islands with ease. If you wanted to leave before the scheduled departure time or come back later you had to pay a premium. The house is meant for folks who just want to stay at the home the entire time and not travel around to the other islands. A recommendation is to have nice plastic cups and plates to avoid having to pay a fee if you drop and break the current glass and/or porcelain dinnerware.
Nice, but a few things to know
We stayed in March 2019 with our 2 kids (ages 6 and 9). We had a great time jumping off the front deck and snorkeling under the house and in the back coral. The water is clear and warm, and there is fantastic opportunity to view all kinds of sea life. Poli was always available and ready with helpful hints. A few things to consider: 1)A lot of mosquitoes at sunset/night. Not all of the beds have mosquito nets. We were eaten alive, even with covering ourselves in DEET. We ended up bringing our 6yo into bed with us most nights, which made for very uncomfortable sleeping. 2) The house can only be reached by boat, and the free transfer is for a very limited time. The location is pretty isolated, so it can be pretty expensive to get water taxis outside the 11am-2pm window. It works if you don't want to go anywhere else, or only want to go to town for lunch/grocery shopping. Suggest that spend only a few days at this place at the end or beginning of a trip. 3) Bottle water isn't included with the house rental, so plan on hauling bottled water to the house or boiling the rain water (shut off in the late evenings until morning).
Truly an amazing stay
What a beautiful experience staying in the yellow house. Stayed for 3 days and could have stayed longer with no problem. This is a for sure away from it all. The water is amazing, and the snorkeling was beautiful, so many different fish and coral. Paddleboards are a must so make sure to request them. Poly and Lyo made the rental process smooth and they are just amazing people, Poly texted daily to make sure all was well, a caretaker stays on the property behind the house so available if needed and will be at your dockside at 11 for the included daily boat taxi to town. We saw dolphins, eagle rays, sting rays, countless numbers of different fish around the house just snorkeling and even a nurse shark swam by one day. And wow the sunsets are spectacular!!! We also timed it to be there during a full moon which was just stunning. Our stay in Bocas was a full week with the last part of the trip being here. Bocas is an amazing island to visit with so much to offer and staying here the last part of our trip was truly icing on the cake. If you want to be in the middle of everything this house is not for you, but to be able to experience some of the beauty this island has to offer and truly getting away from it all, staying in one of these houses should pretty much be on your bucket list, it's just that amazing. With a view like you get with this, who cares if you are cooking your own meals, private dining with the best seat in the house is what you get😁� Thanks again for everything Poly and Lyo🇵�🇦�🏝�🥂�🇵�🇦�
Amazing spot and home
We truly enjoyed our experience. The home was immaculate. The snorkeling around the home is as good as most snorkeling trips. Owner Poli was extremely attentive to our questions and needs. What a rare experience !
We were so happy in this water house!
Poli has been attentive and an excellent hostess, waited for us at the beginning and at the end of our 5 nights stay. The house care takers are sweet and very helpful!
That house is so bright and breezy with almost no bugs. There is an amazing coral reef all around and especially under the house!
The serenity and peacefulness of the area is amazing and beautiful.
We got some fish and lobsters from the local fishermen.
We took a tour to Zapatillas keys and other areas and really enjoy it...thanks Poli for making the arrangements!
THANK YOU again Poli for sharing this beautiful place with us!

The house was lovely. By far, the best home rental experience we have had.
The setting is beautiful. The house has everything you could need (including pots and pans, good knives and cutting boards, dishes, snorkles and masks, even some sunscreen and bug repellent for emergencies. But bring your own as well.)
The house itself is lovely. Clean and well designed and decorated. The kitchen was a pleasant surprise. There were spices, oil, various basic necesities in case you forget something.
Poli was very responsive. She provided all of the information necessary to have an enjoyable trip. There is a house manager who is available to take you to town during a set schedule.
Overall, a fantastic trip in a fantastic location.
Stay in a new, confortable, amazing, fully equipped house over the water. Incredible views, peaceful place integrated with nature, unforgettable vacation.
