“Spacious, beautiful house in great location right by the water!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014 for a stay in December 2013

We were 2 couples booking the house for the holidays and spent Christmas there.
We were the first renters ever of Kim, the landlady, and we had a wonderful time!!!!
The house is spacious, very clean and has everything you need. The big balcony is a really nice place to eat, read, take naps and watch the water- we mostly hang out there, even if it would rain you could hang out there as it has a roof. There is a nice big table to eat, a hammock for naps and more than enough place for anything else you desire to do up there :)
The kitchen is amazingly equipped and has everything you need, even if preparing a complicated meal such as a Christmas turkey.
The upstairs is its own little area with a king bed, surrounded by windows so you can hear the sea at night and a spacious, pretty bathroom. Downstairs you find 2 more separated bedrooms, one with a queen bed, one with 2 singles that can be pushed together and another bathroom.
You will also find a safe in one of the rooms which is for sure a nice facility that makes your life easier.
There also is a laundry machine if you need to wash some cloths, although you have to watch your water use. In most places in Panama there is not unlimited water, so you have to aware of that. The 4 of us had regular showers, we cooked a lot and we did 2 laundry rounds and were totally fine with the water amount.
There were plenty of beach towels too.
You walk 5 minutes out the door left to a small beautiful white sand beach that is just dreamy. Out the door right another 5 minute walk and your reach Bibi's, our favorite place to eat during our stay, great place, good cocktails and yummy food right by the water. 20 meters next to Bibi's is a pretty long peer that is a common taxi peer, you just step on it, walk to the end and wait. The longest we waited was 3 minutes, there is taxi boats stopping all the time collecting people, make sure to talk about the price before you get on.
RIght in front of the house is the Pickled Parrot, a restaurant/bar owned by George who is a real character. His food is okay, but he always has cold, cheap beers and the locations is great.
Kim, the landlady, is a very heartwarming person, she was very kind through the whole process and never got tired of answering my few hundred questions. She was very helpful explaining the way to the house, giving hints and tips and just being very nice. She had the house prepared in a perfect way and had the house manger Jim waiting for us when we arrived. He helped carrying our luggage from the peer to the house and gave a few other helpful advices for our stay. He came by to check us out again when we left and our security deposit did show back on my account only a week later. So everything went smooth and we had a wonderful stay. We can only recommend the house to anyone who wants to be right by the water, a little out of crazy Bocas town and wants some privacy at the house.

“Carenero Dream”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014 for a stay in April 2014
Google Translation

Nous avons passé un mois fantastique dans la maison de Kim. Elle est spacieuse, agréable, et bien placé sur Carenero. Vous pouvez aller au Bibi's en 2 min a pied pour manger ou boire un cocktail. Les chambres sont grandes et les lits sont confortables. La cuisine est vraiment bien équipée. Les salles de bains sont propres. La terrasse offre une vue merveilleuse sur Isla Solarte. Nous avons vu des paresseux dans les arbres autour de la maison. Vous pouvez vous baignez depuis le ponton de la maison. Des vacances de rêves :-)

Thank you Camille. We loved having you all at the house! Sorry we never got a chance to have a beer while we were in Bocas - catch you next time though!
