I loved my three-week stay at the Casitas of Villa Paraiso. First, I don’t mean to gush but the location is the best on the island. It’s far enough away from the Bocas Town action to be peaceful and uncrowded, and close enough to grab a quick taxi or take an easy ten-minute bike ride to Spanish school, restaurants, water taxis to other islands, etc. Villa Paraiso is also super close to the bus stop at the Playa Estrella turn-off, the surf spots at Playa Paunch, and the road to Playa Bluff and the unforgettable Piscina and Lagoon. The villa’s beach is mostly calm (varies daily) and the water clear and clean. In the mornings I’d relax on one of the villa’s beach-front adirondacks, sipping my coffee and watching the sun rise to the sound of gentle waves and jungle birds. Oftentimes, a family of howlers would loudly frolic and eat in the fruit trees on the property--fascinating to observe. Most afternoons I’d paddleboard around the bay, and, in the middle, toward the sand bar, I’d dive into the water to cool down and then just sit on my board and meditate, letting the warm breeze dry my hair and cleanse my soul. At night, after dinner, I’d take a glass of wine out to the dark beach and gaze at the stars, a few times blessed with stunning views of the Milky Way. The location is not the only world-class feature of Villa Paraiso--it also boasts clean and well-functioning amenities. You can tell the owners lovingly take care of their place: the grounds were pristine (incredible tropical flowers and trees) and the coffee maker, refrigerator, WiFi, microwave, stove, etc worked perfectly. Locks on doors and gates were solid. Bed, bathroom, pool--all clean, comfortable, and inviting. Beach bikes were crucial and used every day. I especially loved riding my bike home after dinner, head-lamp lighting my path along the dark road as I dodged pot-holes and frogs, immersed in night-jungle sounds. Finally, a word about the owners. The Cottrells are a lovely family and excellent hosts. They helped me book a few rich experiences and, best of all, they were kind to me. I passionately recommend Las Casitas.

Villa Paraiso is an excellent property in an excellent location! Very clean and well kept, has all you need for a relaxing and fun vacation. The hosts are awesome and always there if you have any questions or concerns. They arranged for a boat to take us to sight see and snorkel at a very good price with someone that was trustworthy and knowledgeable. I have nothing negative to say about this property and would recommend it to anyone!!! Hope to be back again soon!

This is a great property and a wonderful place for a relaxing holiday. You truly are right on the beach and have your own private pool. Just 2 blocks down the beach is a nice pier bar and restaurant. One big plus no bugs to worry about. Taxi trip to Bocas Town is only $2/person Great vacation.

These villas are amazing, the operators are so friendly and helpful. This is such a great location, it may look like its a bit out of town, but it is a short flat bike ride in or a few dollars in a taxi. The pool is a great temp and the ocean on your doorstaep is perfect. Very private and quiet. Short bike ride away from town to other bars as well. Cant really fault this place...highlight of our trip. Do your self a favour and dont miss out on staying here.

We are happy that our villa made your vacation! It is in the perfect location, close to town for convenience and far enough for peace and quiet! The 4 complimentary bikes make it easy to see the island and get to town! The only rental in ALL the islands with your own pool and right on the beach! Thank for letting every one know to do themselves a favor and stay at Villa Paraiso!
