  • 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!"

  • Comfortable home in a quiet location

    "We enjoyed staying at Tera's home. It was comfortable with a huge porch and wildlife all around us. There is one large bedroom with a very comfortable bed. There is a smaller bedroom with bunkbeds. The living room and kitchen are plenty big for a small group. It would be nice if they could stock salt and pepper and perhaps sugar so you don't have to buy it. Lots of towels available which was very nice and appreciated. I thought the shower was fine and the water got very hot if you wanted it to get hot, my friends thought it could have a little bit more water pressure. No one had any real complaints though! We felt very safe there. You are really in the wilderness out here which we enjoyed. We saw howler monkeys outside in the trees right behind the house. One day it rained very hard and we saw a caiman in the water below the bedroom window (2nd floor). So cool. Javier even killed a poisonous snake in our driveway. This is not a complaint. We were happy to be in a natural environment. I say this because if you are bringing children, I would stay with them in the yard just to be careful. We didn't get to see the sloth but we looked for it. The house is about a 5 minute taxi ride into town. You could walk into town but we didn't quite feel comfortable walking down the road because of the cars, but several locals were walking. You can walk the other direction and go over to a little beach place called Skully's. To go to a big beach, you will take a taxi into town and then hop on a water taxi, or you will take a taxi about 30-45 minutes (round trip was $35) then a water taxi. Javier was attentive, polite, friendly and helpful. He can call the taxi's for you and help make arrangements for trips if you like - this was very helpful. We were on a "girls trip" and we are well-traveled and independent. He checked in on us a couple times a day. Personally, we wanted a little bit more space from Javier, but we understand he was trying to be helpful and make sure we had a good visit. He is a very nice gentleman. All around great location, great house, great people! We had a very wonderful, amazing trip and this house was perfect for us. We appreciate Tera letting us stay here."

  • Hospitality and Cleanliness

    "Hosts were there to recommend a good driver (since we did not have a car to drive out and about) to take us around into/and about in Panama City and beyond. Kitchen well equipped for our cooking needs. Enjoyed the pool and the fresh air blowing in from the ocean breezes. The birdies on the trees sure like to sing and make their own music. Makes one feel really close to nature. Would definitely recommend Marilyn and Jerry Johnson's home for a "home away from home" place to stay and would return for another stay at their lovely home. Love shopping at Allbrook Mall and eatjng the freshest seafood you will ever find!!. Supermarket RibaSmith has all the "U.S. food products that you could possibly want with fresh meats, produce, etc."

  • Great apartment in an excellent location!

    "We stayed for three nights and it was a perfect location to explore Casco Viejo. The apartment is spacious and charming. A great patio to view the water and the guards protecting the presidential palace. We felt safe and welcomed. There are two sets of stairs to consider, but it wasn't a problem for us. The kitchen is huge. Sergio, the caretaker was great and met us after a late airport arrival. They can arrange for airport pick up at reasonable rates."
