“Villa Paraiso”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

We also loved the Casitas! I researced many places to stay in Bocas and this was absolutely the perfect place for us! The Cotrell Family are wonderful hosts! Top Notch! I wouldn't change a thing. The bikes were key for us! We biked everywhere by day and used a Taxi at night. We cooked in several nights, the outdoor kitchen was perfect. They are very well equiped and have thought about everthing. Feel free to contact us with any questions!

We loved the Casitas! Best part was hearing the crashing waves lull you to sleep. Even though it rained much of our time, we enjoyed the beautiful setting. The location is a 5 minute taxi ride out of town, which gets you away from the town noise and also gives you beach front and swimming access (free of rip tide risk), having both of which is rare in Bocas. We rented both casitas for 4 nights, which are very reasonably priced with our 6 y/o daughter staying with us in one room, and two of our friends staying in the other casita. Our daughter loved having a fresh water pool as well as the beach outside our rooms. Steve and Angie were great giving us recommendations for things to do, a cell phone with taxi numbers programmed in and they helped us arranged a private taxi transfer from Almirante to Boquete/David for the same price of what a bus would have cost us. Thank you Angie, Steve and the kids for the hospitality.

My boyfriend and I stayed 5 nights at the villa, it turned out to be the perfect location for us. We were close to some of the best surf breaks, and also a 5 min ride to town. We loved the sound of the ocean coming through the window. Angie and Steve were very accommodating, anything we needed, they were happy to help! We enjoyed cooking breakfast by the pool in the outdoor kitchen, everything we needed was there. Angie left us freshly baked brownies and banana bread on different days which was a nice surprise and very welcoming! We felt very safe and relaxed. We would stay here again for sure!

We had a fantastic 5-night stay at Las Casitas. From the beginning of my correspondence with Angie, I felt very comfortable about renting this place for our family (two parents, two young adults). Angie was right – there is no other place like this in Bocas. We enjoyed our field trips in the surrounding area, but it was always nice to come back to Las Casitas. The massage with Jill was pure heaven, the treats were delicious and Angie's restaurant recommendations spot-on. We hope to come back someday.

We work hard to make your vacation stress free and relaxing from the very first inquiry until we say good bye at the end of your stay. We are here to help when needed, and disappear when not, so you have exactly what you are looking for! There really is NO other place like this in all the archipelago of islands.

We spent 8 nights in the villa and everything was perfect. Angie and Steve are the perfect hosts.

A great vacations for couples or families. The pool was excellent and you can't beat the location, beach front property!

It was the best place in Bocas.

WE loved everything about it, can't wait to go back, just a relaxing bike ride away from excellent Creole food, fun and groceries - loved the beautiful barbecue area just outside the room for use when friends come out and use the pool too. The ocean was a few feet away - you can hear the waves and the parrots - monkeys just outside in the mature trees. Beach kept up immaculately, the rooms were scrupulously clean. The best accommodations we have ever seen.

I enjoyed our stay at Villa Paraiso the beach was clean and and best of all we were alone on the beach. It was the best place in Bocas. it was far better than Bluff or Red Frog they were both so far from town unlike Villa Paraiso. I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: get the casitas
