If you are looking for the perfect, most relaxing, peaceful, clean, accommodating hosts and stress free vacation ............you will LOVE this house. Poli, Lyo and Juan are wonderful host, they take total care of you and your planning for restaurants, excursions, where to shop for food and/or local talents of the precious people of Bocas del Toro you have found it with these people. The house is immaculate, the ocean is so clear, the kayaking is superb! There is a very nice grill in the back down the pier for cooking your fresh lobster and fish which fishermen bring each day for your offerings! There is no detail forgotten! Juan will take you in to town once a day with a smile on his face! He and his wife are so sweet and helpful. Poli and Lyo are always there for you to help with any information you might need. I would go back tomorrow if I could. I have traveled to Belize several times and Costa Rico and I do love Belize but this was top notch vacationing with people who are now our "friends". I hope to go back in Feb for my birthday for my birthday! I do NOT go back to the same places because I love to try new adventures but I will go back to this one! There is an opening in the floor of the living room so that you can watch the sea life as you are sitting on your couch. It was magical, so very stress free! I LOVE this place. There is not one change I would recommend. The people of Bocas del Toro were so welcoming, the food was so good, the shopping was so fun! We had such a wonderful, fun vacation!!! If you want the best, call Poli or email she will take wonderful care of you!
I just have one regret! Not staying my whole two weeks at this beautiful Yellow house. I felt like it was dream the whole week we stayed. You can stay as busy as you like or be just as content staying at the house and using Poli's well equipped kitcken to relax and fix your own meals. We will definitely be back next year.
Thank you Poli, Lyo and Jose for making our anniversary so special.

First off, this house will not be for everyone but it will be paradise for 90% of us. If you want a taste of owning your own house on the Caribbean off the grid (except for the wifi and cell service which was great) this is your place. Yes there are bugs so bring your bug spray (especially in town). Yes the kitchen doesn't have everything but we had some of the best coffee from our own " Italian perking pot". Yes the house does not have AC and it was hot but with your deck right on fantastically swimmable water you will "manage to survive". The view and atmosphere is truly all you could ask for. Our mission on a trip is not to be entertained but to escape and this met every expectation we could have had. If you want to be in town, they will shuttle you once a day for supplies or lunch. If you need more than that you can hire a water taxi in the evening for $40-50 round trip. If you decide to travel to Bocas Town at night or for water excursions, have them hook you up with Edilberto, he is as responsible as they come, gracious, customer focused and speaks excellent English.
Poli, Santiago and Juan were always focused on making sure we were well informed and cared for during our stay. Thank you for an excellent experience!
We stayed a week at this beautiful place in the month of May and we loved it. If you choose to stay in a house over the water, this location is superb. We saw a lot of ocean life and the views of the sunsets are incredible. The place has most things that we needed for our stay. They do provide daily transfers during the day to town which was nice. We actually ate big lunches in Boca and then got food to go for our evening dinners and this prevented us paying the high rate of water taxis in the evenings and we watched the sunsets. The only reason we didn't give this beautiful place a five star was that a ceiling fan was needed in the living room area for air flow during the hot months. Other than that, the owners kept us well informed and the excursion advice was perfect for our stay in Boca! Hope to be back some day!!
Great hospitality. Exactly what we were looking for, thank you. The seclusion and serenity was great.
If you are looking for a unique place to stay, this is it.The house is entirely over the water and you can swim and snorkel off the deck. The owners Poli and Lyo are extremely helpful. They arranged trips for us and cab arrangements at the end. We would love to return and stay longer. Thanks Poli and Lyo.
I highly suggest this spot. Poli and Lyo are great. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. The house is amazing. Quiet, beautiful view! About a 15 min water taxi to town. I will certainly stay there again.
