Beautiful eco house right on the water!

  • 5 of 5

The mango house is a beautiful property right on the water. We enjoyed sitting on the deck, looking at the beautiful view. We saw manta rays and some dolphins right from the deck. It is very private and away from the loudness of Old Bank, but you can easily call one of the water taxis with the phone provided, and they will pick you up at the nearby dock. Snorkeling is pretty good from the dock too. Even though the place is very private we always felt safe. Dayana and Malena were a pleasure to work with, really informative.

To live cut from the world! Perfect! I wasn't expecting a microwave in a house using solar power! Internet is good only for email but even in town, it's a basic internet.

So yes I highly recommend it!

Had hoped snorkeling would be good but visibility was limited. May have been impacted by time of year.

Lovely views and vibe to it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review! We loved to host you here. We are really sorry if internet is not fast, we are in the jungle and you came during the stormy weather, it make it works worst. The best time for snorkelling is normally March-April and September-October. November and December are more adequate for surfing! Looking forward to welcome back you some time in the future!

Mango House March 2016

  • 4 of 5

What a terrific house, all the basics, very clean and a terrific deck overlooking the ocean. Our hosts were very helpful and environmentally conscious, which was a pleasure to see as that is not common. Access by boat taxis was great. You can easily walk part way into town, but we decided not to cross the swampy area as it was very muddy, so took the boat taxi the rest of the way. Lots of activities within a short boat ride. Our favourite activities included: renting bikes in Bocas and biking out to Playa Bluff..fantastic views, amazing beaches and it is a quiet road as well as the Bat cave tour... it is an amazing adventure. Have Dayana book the guide... Horky, he was amazing. This property was a great value for a truly unique experience. Thank you hosts.

Awesome house!!!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time and the house was perfect. Offers scenic views of sunrises and sunsets and a great place to hang out when the weather is not so great.. only problems we ran in to was the power as the house is completely run by solar energy and it rained a lot while we were there. Host was super friendly and helpful and answered all of our questions upon arrival

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Mango house is beautiful. Very comfortable beds. Everything there in kitchen that we needed. Coffee maker, blender utensils. Very clean . There hosts were wonderful. They made sure we had a phone to reach them and only checked on us when we asked. Lots of privacy. Getting to and from is very easy. Just wAlk to boat dock and flag down a water taxi. Closest beach is red frog and we went there two of the days. So beautiful. One day we spent at starfish beach. Unbelievable beauty.

The house had all amenities. Even a fan besides ceiling fans. Water was good and a wash e r and dryer in lower level that we used. Dayana and Melena could not have been nicer. Really made us believe this was our home. Highly recommend. My wife and I were there five nights. Last night a couple of sting rays were swimming off the balcony. It was picturesque

The house is surrounded by nature, the Caribbean Sea in the front and the tropical Jungle in the back. There is almost no neighbors nearby, so you will hear just the birds and the waves. Here you can do snorkelling in the crystallines waters directly in front of the house!

Whenever you want you can visit Bastimentos town, take a boat to any of the other island, enjoy the nightlife of Bocas and come back to the peaceful and relaxing atmosphere that surrounds the house.
