“Nice treehouses”
Reviewed March 30, 2011

It is a nice property in a beautiful natural area. It is out of town, so you do need a taxi every time you go shopping or eating out. You can use a bike, but biking close to town was a little too dangerous for us.
We stayed a full month and had a good time. Ron was not as helpful to us as he seemed to other people.
WiFi was not working for several weeks. No air conditioning was no problem. It was not that hot. If living area would have been screened it would be good since there are lots of bugs and sitting outside was not always pleasant.
Swimming or beach close by was very marginal. No sandy beach for swimming close by.
Yes, we did have some monkeys visiting for several days.

I know you did not receive the customer service that you were promised by Ron. I want you to know that I have taken your advice and am now booking my own reservations.

We had the greatest time in the treehouse. It really is in the most beautiful setting with gorgeous landscape. My husband does all the cooking and he made all of our breakfasts and dinners in the outdoor kitchen. It is magical. Ron was so helpful as we booked only two days before we got there. He was so helpful by picking us up, taking us to many stores and showed us town. He also hooked us up with a private boat for a great day snorkeling and seeing other islands. We were lucky enough to meet the owner Heather who has done a fabulous job on the property. It is safe, it is quaint, it is a must if you are in Bocas del Toro. Thanks for having us, we will be back!
