  • Perfect location on the island!

    "This was a great place for a quiet girl's trip, a couple, or small family. We were three women who wanted a Caribbean vacation AWAY from the resorts and cruise areas. The home was clean, and in a perfect location for the ocean breeze. Travelers should know you must walk along a trail to reach the property, but the view, quiet location, and breeze is worth the walk. The caretakers were very kind, accommodating and helpful...one was even waiting for us with a light when we were not back before dark. The kitchen had basic supplies for cooking, although we had a little trouble with the propane tank. Santiago was quick to get us another one and help us connect it. One air conditioner worked well, but was very noisy. The other didn't work. The property manager quickly sent a repairman, but it was unrepairable. Sleeping was a bit warm in that bedroom! My only suggestion is to provide some sheets with a higher cotton content (I'm being very picky here). If you've looked into this area, you know that this island is still off the beaten path which has advantages, and some disadvantages. The people are extremely kind, but there was a mugging the previous month so be cautious walking at night. We (three women) felt very safe during the day. A local, named Rene', was a good guide if you want to take a day trip or go out at night. There was also quite a bit of trash everywhere, but the area around the home is relatively clean. On a calm day you can snorkel down the path, and the Firefly restaurant was a wonderful place to get a meal. The water taxis are easy to use and can take you anywhere in the area for a low cost. This was a great place for our adventure! Highly recommended!"

  • Great home, large and open,nice breeze

    "Very nice location except you need a flashlight to walk path in at night,very uneven. Antonio, caretaker was at top of highlights. Two big disappointments were that good fresh fruit was very hard to find,both in Old Town as well as Bocas and Red frog beach. Can not swim in front of house very easily.Big undertow there I saw life guards rescue 4 people in 30 minutes.Three days after being there a German man drowned there, but all this lead us to find star fish beach which was one of the best beaches we have been on. People were friendly and we found Tio Toms in Old Bank to eat.Food was good people friendly and food was served family style. The deck on the house was fantastic for morning coffee as well as meals.

  • Panama at its best

    "This terrific house was home to three couples for five nights in early April, and it could not have been better. The house was exceptionally clean and well equipped, and with three bathrooms, was perfect for our group. The large front porch was our favourite hangout. The staff at Azul Paradise resort next door, which manages the house, treated us like their own guests. And the best part was that because we had access to resort amenities, we had the best of both worlds - private accommodation and kitchen facilities but we used the resort restaurants when we didn't feel like cooking. We took advantage of the resort's snorkelling excursion packages and, for a group of scuba divers like ourselves, we were very impressed. The snorkelling was better than many of our dives. If you rent the house, don't miss the opportunity to visit Salt Creek and take a jungle tour. The beach was beautiful, the water was warm and the resident howler monkey was entertaining. It could not have been a better Panama experience."
