  • My only regret is that I didn't stay longer

    "This is a unique and incredible house. We were late but our host waited 3 hours for us to arrive. He took us to the grocery store and then on a moonlit boat ride to the house. It was dark when we arrived. It wasn't until the next morning we saw just how amazing this location was. We only stayed 3 nights but made it to Star Island, another Island to snorkel, got to town to party one night and even managed to find time to have massages at the house. One night they provided a cook. I was initially concerned about the lack of AC. I stayed in the downstairs bedroom. With the door open and fan on it was as comfortable as my home with the AC set to 72. It did get very warm in the afternoons there but we usually out doing something and not sitting around the house anyway. Our guide Jose knew the area perfectly and was a great guide as well as boat captain. Whenever we were ready to go (even at 2am) he was right there. There is loads of wildlife. There were large JellyFish viewable from the dock the first day, Egrets around almost all day, howler monkies (heard but not seen) and a resident gray 3-towed sloth. Just ask the gardener to point him out. Just don't make the same mistake we did and book too short of a trip. There is a lot to see and do here. You won't want to leave. Oh and make sure you check out the glass floor under the coffee table that looks into the ocean. I didn't notice it until the last day."

  • Wonderful home!

    "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"

  • Incredible place!

    "We not only loved the place, we made a new friend (well, actually lots of them - not just Sandi but her pets and all of the Monkeys, birds, Iguanas, etc.). We loved being so close to the Rain Forest. We watched "Iggy" the Iguana climb the 30 foot tall avocado tree to eat avocados, there were butterflies and humming birds everywhere. Monkeys to watch every day, right in the back yard. Fantastic! Sandi has great dogs that we loved and even a cat that stayed right outside our door and was the friendliest cat I've ever met. The location was perfect. Close enough to town to make it really easy to get back and forth but not so close that you hear any of the music or parties plus close to beaches. Right between the water and the rain forest. How can you top that? Sandi started our stay by taking us to the only Irish Bar in town for St. Patrick's day and introducing us to some of her great friends. people that could give us some great insight into the area. We then went exploring on our own and had a ball. Sandi sent us to some good places to get dinner and to buy local groceries. She also arranged some great trips with people she knew (which helped a lot because when someone takes you to an island and says that they will come back and pick you up at 4 pm - you really hope that happens, and it did! He was there ten minutes early). I would recommend Sandi and her place to my closest friends, with no hesitation, the way that she built the house is genius, with her living in the upstairs and two one bedroom apartments below. We had plenty of room to relax, a full kitchen with pans, dishes, etc. and an air conditioned bedroom. We are thinking about retiring in Panama and if we are able to pull that off, we will definitely spend more time with our new friend, Sandi."

  • Great Place to Stay!

    "Just returned from Bocas and sad to say our stay was not long enough. The condo is clean, comfortable and cozy. The communication was great. Thank you Temi and Natasha for that. Great location, just cheap taxi ride to town. Just a heads up, if you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs. The roosters are up very early. Can't wait to return!!"
