  • 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!"

  • Very quiet, affordable and pleasant stay

    "Spent 6 nights at the Boquete River Inn, very comfortable and spacious cabins. A couple of beautiful rest stops with benches along the perimeter trail to enjoy morning coffee or just sit and enjoy the views. Close enough for walking to the highway to catch the bus into either Boquete or David, with bus stops right at the entrance in both directions. Close enough to Boquete to walk back if you like to walk (downhill all the way and usually wind at your back). Ken (the owner) is a very pleasant fellow and often offers a ride into town if your travel times coincide with his. Don't miss the hike into the canyon. Stayed in Cabin #4 at the end of the road with a great view of Volcan Baru. Warm, clean pool."

  • Wow - Just Wow.

    "The house is just beautiful and amazing. We spent the week with another couple and had a lot of fun. The caretaker was very nice. The gardener set out bananas from the property for us to feed the birds. Although we knowingly visited during the rainy season - with the amazing patio, our visiting and wine tasting was not interrupted in the least bit by the weather. The owner made great arrangements for us to arrive VERY late. Security escorted us right to the door and gave us the keys. We highly recommend the house."

  • Amazing House - Beautiful Natural Setting - Wonderful Owners

    "We have traveled to Bocas several times and are infatuated with Old Point. While it is a bit of a boat ride from town (which we consider a positive) it is a world of its own, with beautiful beaches, water and many natural attractions. The house is really amazing with an open breezy floor plan, full kitchen and direct beach access. The English speaking owners pick you up at the airport and give you time for shopping before heading out to the house. We enjoy cooking, so we bought a bunch of supplies and cooked many of our own meals. There are also several excellent options a short walk down the beach - Al Natural has excellent food and a wonderful staff. Casa Cayuco is another dining/drinking option, but it was closed for vacation while we were there. We didn't get a chance to check out the Zapatilla keys, but they are supposed to be ideal for diving and snorkeling. We will do that next time for sure! We did walk along the many miles of lush beaches in the area - which is pretty much all we need on vacation. If you are looking for more seclusion than town - and nice beaches, this house is a great option (note that beaches are public in Panama so the occasional person walks by). Also, the owners are fabulous and honest. We booked through VRBO and everything went 100% perfect!!!!"
