“Excellent 'unplugged' stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Me and my boyfriend booked this cabin for a full week in May. We had never been to Bocas so we didn't know what to expect. Sterling and his girlfriend were such a great help in getting us to the cabin (somewhat distant from the town center) and basically making us feel welcome. They shared tips and recommendations for where to eat. The cabin is completely made of wood and receives solar power. It is small, but very charming. One bed, bathroom (outside shower), fridge, a small table and small kitchen is more than enough to have in that cabin. It has a porch where you can sit and enjoy the sound of the waves or just relax while trying to get a glimpse of the caiman who lives in the pond below. Have no fear, it is a beautiful place that I will highly recommend to others travelling there. I am used to being online all day and watching TV, but I am very happy this place lacked both as it allowed us both to enjoy our time in a better, more productive way. We rented Sterling's quad for a day and we were able to explore the island a bit. There are 2 restaurants within walking distance. The road from where Bluff Beach begins can get quite muddy during rainy days, so beware. The beach is a 5-minute walk, tops, but not very calm waters as it faces east, so avoid swimming there. A taxi headed downtown is around $12. Sterling was great and even drove us to the airport on the day we checked out. We hope to be able to visit some other time. Thank you for everything, we had a blast.

“Private Paradise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Every review has been spot on! The cabin is new and secluded. It is in the middle of the jungle so you get the plants and animals that go along with it including the tropical sounds. The beaches are beautiful with very few people around and only a 5 minute walk from the cabin. We loved the cabin and Sterling, but think we should mention a few things that might help you decide if this is the place for you. The cabin is a 20 min. quad ride on a dirt road back to town, which was a blast to do during the day, and is also on the way to the "Flying Pirate Monkey Trails" Without a quad, A taxi will cost you anywhere from $12-$15. There are also 2 beach bars within a 15 walk from the cabin. This is an eco lodge, so it runs on solar power and has no hot water, and an outdoor shower. If you are a sociable party animal, this is not the place for you. IF you love nature and privacy, this is the place you want to be!!!!!

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We couldn't have asked for better accommodations during our stay in Bocas Del Toro. We rented a 4 wheeler and got groceries in town, then met Sterling and followed him to the cabin. The cabin was perfect size for 2 people and had everything we needed! It was tucked off the road surrounded by palm trees and a view of a pond. We saw and heard lots of wildlife-including monkeys and frogs. We took advantage of the outdoor grill and the firepit. The cabin was well beyond our expectations! Bluff Beach is amazing with so much to explore. If your looking for a quiet, clean and beautiful place to stay, I highly recommend Sterling's EcoCabin. Thanks again Sterling for everything! We will be back;)

“Fantastic secluded getaway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

This is a great little place to stay. Nice and secluded but still civilized. Bluff beach is just down the hill and stretches for as far as the eye can see. Fifteen minute walk up the beach to two great beach bars with food. Best memories... Cocktails on the deck overlooking the lagoon, watching for the caiman to come out at dusk. Walking back from the beach bar along the beach at night and seeing all the stars so close! Falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean waves just down the hill.

Sterling was a great host and made sure we had everything we needed.

“Amazing getaway”

What an experience. Surf, Sun and Amazing unspoilt beauty. If you are looking for a holiday to escape to a place where its just you and nature this is the spot, located near all the good surf spots on the island and owner Sterling is the perfect person to have show you all the spots on the way as he takes you to the eco lodge from the airport. Sterling is a great guy who is very accomadating and will help you with anything you need to make your stay in Bocas enjoyable.
