We have stayed twice before at houses in Bocas, that were "off the grid", so we had to be very careful with the electricity. Not so much here, as the solar system was more than adequate. All of the appliances were high end, and all in great working condition, another thing that is not always found in the Bocas area. The only limitation was that they asked that you only run the washer and dryer during the daylight hours.
The snorkeling right out front of the house was also great. We were at the house for 8 days, and never got tired of snorkeling.
As for the "team" that is watching over the place, we can't say enough. Everyone was nice, and were very helpful making arrangements for local tours (Erika was tops). We especially liked the tour of the chocolate farm across the bay. Be sure to make a stop at the "no name" bar and restaurant.
Although they try their best to help you avoid the noseeums at peak times, we recommend that you bring your own lightweight outer garments for the early morning and early evening when they are most active. coconut oil is provided, and is helpful at these peak times, but the lightweight garments are also helpful.
We also recommend that you bring your own hiking boots or rubber boots if you plan on hiking. Although they provide several pairs, it's always best to have your own.
We also appreciated all of the things they provide. This would include various spices, coffee, laundry soap, shampoo, conditioner, and maid service for longer stays.
Would we recommend staying here? absolutely. We hope to return.
Wonderful location, wonderful units.The web site does it no justice. This is a place to stay in in Bocas. A short walk to the town and local stores,and a local beach bar. Steve and Angie are great hosts and are very accommodating.
Can hardly wait to go back next year.
