  • Perfect for families! Best in Bocas!

    "Our stay at Lucas and Gloria's place was more than amazing!! We decided to make a last minute trip to Bocas from Puerto Viejo. We planned to stay for only 4 nights, but loved it so much, we had to extend to a week, and then really wished we had time for a month or two. Lucas and Gloria were easily able to accommodate our family of 5 and they were such wonderful hosts. The house was very clean, everyone was comfortable and we had plenty of space. Our kids absolutely loved it here! The hammock in the living room was a hit with everybody. We got to see monkeys up close every day, and a lot of cool birds we had never seen. One of our favorite parts were the coconut trees! We absolutely loved the fresh coconut water and coconut meat every day. And to be able to get fresh eggs from the hens was great as well. We were also thankful that we were able to do our laundry when we needed. We loved the location- far enough from town so we weren't in the middle of parties and crowds, but close enough to get there easily when we needed to. Lucas also arranged for a boat tour with a local guy and Gloria called a taxi for us when we needed to leave. They had great advice for us on beaches and cool local spots to go to. We definitely got a lot more out of our stay than we would have in a hotel! So thankful that we found this gem!"

  • Exquisite Place & Surroundings!

    "This guest home shows every bit as nice as the pics, and is even better in reality. The owner has obviously poured a lot of time, attention, and thought into creating a very special place for guests, and this shows in every touch, inside and out. The property's gardens are exceptional, the views incredible, the appointments inside thoroughly comfortable, and the host is A1. Even had hot zucchini bread waiting for us, upon our later eve arrival. (Not to mention supplied my husband with a beer, as we pulled in after stores were closed, or soon closing.) It's a bit of a find to get to the property if you're a first timer to the area. We were. But host/owner is VERY supportive, with phone calls to us throughout our closer travels, and met us on the main road in her vehicle, to lead us in: thoughtful and appreciated, especially if you're arriving in the night hours, as we were. If you like natural beauty, well appointed accommodations, and an A1 host/owner (thoroughly knowledgeable of the area and fluent in English) you can't do better than this! In our minds, we're still there! ps -- bring an eye mask if you don't want early morning light in your room pps -- living room (high ceilinged window) and special "property perch" overlook Vulcan - Panama's highest mountain peek. The surrounding area is spectacular!"

  • Best residence for large groups on Carenero Island! Step off front steps to the sea!

    "The Kent's home on Caranero Island is far and away the largest, most comfortable for large families and groups. Located right on the water on the island's windward side, you wake up every day with ocean waves in front of you and sleep to ocean sounds at night. Within sight, you will see surfers learning how to ride waves. The house is equipped to prepare meals or, better yet, have the staff coordinate cooked meals for you! Within a short walk, there is a lovely seafood restaurant, Bibis. Just be careful not to run into a land crab at night (they're terrified of people)! The Kent's local staff is highly accommodative and ably coordinated any boat travel, services (e.g., in-house massages and excursions) or housekeeping we required. We echo some comments other guests had warned regarding eager locals who walk close to the house, infringing a bit on privacy especially during the afternoon hours. But once we grew accustomed to our surroundings after Day 2, we were convinced of how fortune were were to be guests of one of the nicest accommodations in Bocas del Toro. Thank you to the Kents and staff for a wonderful booking experience and vacation stay, as well as your responsiveness whenever we had questions!"

  • Beautiful clean retreat. Bird lover's paradise!

    "Quincy and Ciella were amazing hosts, breakfast was amazing. Coffee, tea and water available all day. Our privacy was completely respected. The room was exactly as the picture shows, the bed was comfortable. Spent hours just in the terrace watching all the different birds. Our hike into town was delightful, we just grabbed a taxi back as it was a long hike uphill. We had a bit of trouble when going outside of the town area, as there was no phone service there. You need to either arrange with your taxi driver a time to pick you up, or perhaps just rent a car for a day or two. Quincy and Ciella can arrange that for you, it does not appear to be expensive and gives you more freedom. All in all we would recommend this property to anyone who enjoys a quiet location and particularly bird lovers! Thank you again Ciella and Quincy, we hope to meet again!"
