Oceanfront Home Walking Distance To Bocas Town
average rating of 4.5 based on 8 reviews


  • 3 of 5

This house was supposed to be the jewel in the crown of our stay in Panama. We arrived to find that despite the house being advertised as in a quiet location there is a new back packers hostel right next door! Music is playing from breakfast through to night and the deck is completely overlooked by the bar area. The house itself is very tired. The dishwasher didn't work, the deck chairs were mostly cheap plastic and broken. We had to ask for the wifi to be connected, the BBQ was unusable and all in all the house was a disappointment. That said, the air con worked great and the fish and star fish you can see from the porch take your breath away. Being picked up by water taxi from your own boat dock is also supercool! Bocas is a great place to stay, we had a great time, but the house needs to be spruced up to command the price.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed Bocas and the seafront location of the house. The neighborhood has spoken to the hostel near the house (which opened just days before your stay), and they have made some changes. Also, we have just spent a month completing updates to the house, including painting and needed repairs. We hope you will come back one day to experience the changes.

Great house in Bocastown

  • 5 of 5

This house is located just a short walk from the main center area of Bocastown. It provided plenty of room for our group of 6 with room for more. It was nicely furnished, all appliances, a/c's and wi-fi internet worked great. The best bonus was the backyard- the ocean! While at the house, most of our time was sitting on the private dock over the water, kayaking (there are 2 at the house) or fishing. Chris , the property manager was very responsive and easy to communicate with. We'd love to return and highly recommend this house for a stay in Bocastown.

Enjoyed the house and location a lot

  • 4 of 5

Great location and a very cleverly built house over the ocean. You can jump off the back porch right into the ocean. You can also get taxi/boats any where from the porch. The complimentary wine and flowers were a welcomed treat.While the house need a little TLC , we were very pleased with it and the location was perfect.

Nice find!

Styling in Bocas

  • 5 of 5

This may be the best rental house in Bocas. Chris was great and made everything flow smoothly. We appreciated the place and the great service in every way. The location and the water are unbelievable. The cart rental from Tyson was also a welcome addition to our visit. Great time, great people, and great food. We may have been spoiled by the open access everywhere - returning in the busy season would likely be a different experience. Great small town with lots of character.

Amazing house, beautiful view and great host !

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a few days in the house and it is just amazing ! The best location we had during our 1 month trip around Panama. The house is beautiful, with a lot of space and an incredible deck over the water. It is perfectly located in the center of Bocas, 1 min walk to main street with its bars and restaurants but with the advantage of being really quiet. The arrival by boat directly in the house was really great and we felt very confortable during all our stay. The nights on the deck were just magic :) Tyson really is a wonderful host who has been very helpful to us. If you are planning to stay in Bocas, we recommend it 100% !


Nous avons passé quelques jours dans cette maison et c’était vraiment magnifique. De loin la meilleure location que nous ayons eu durant notre voyage d’un mois au Panama. La maison est magnifique, avec beaucoup d’espace et un ponton incroyable surplombant l’océan. La localisation est parfaite au centre de Bocas, à 1 minute à peine de marche de la rue principale avec ses bars et restaurants mais avec l’avantage d’être au calme. L’arrivée en bateau directement dans la maison était géniale et nous avons passé un super séjour. Les nuits sur le ponton étaient juste magiques :) Tyson est vraiment un hôte exceptionnel qui nous a été d’une aide précieuse. Si vous prévoyez d’aller à Bocas, nous vous recommandons cette maison à 100% !

Three (3) Great Days in Bocas

  • 4 of 5

We had our annual 3 day stay in Bocas and for the first time chose a VRBO property. We could not have made a better selection. From the beginning the service was excellent. Our party was split between arriving by air and coming in by water taxi, but Jermaine was there for both of our parties. The registration was quick and seamless and in no time we were in the property, on the deck and in the water. The location is close to town yet far enough to escape the "craziness" that is Bocas. The only drawback we experienced (ergo the 4 stars and not 5) was an air conditioning issue with two bedrooms. It took until the second day to get the necessary repairs made (not due to lack of response by Tyson). Jermaine was most helpful in getting us a boat with two great brothers who took us out to Tierra Oscura community where we do work each year (Rotarians), made sure we visited with Dolphins in Dolphin Bay (The most we have seen in 8 years), and a great afternoon at Red Frog Beach. Oh yes, the next day we spent at Starfish Beach. Would definitely stay here and recommend this property to others.
