“Great Holiday in Bocas”

We spent the Christmas holiday in the Purple house. What a wonderful place to get away from it all. Claudia was great and always around to answer questions if needed. She met us at the airport to help direct us to the house. The outdoor deck is hard to pull yourself away from, but you must to see all that Bocas has to offer. Saigon Bay offers an opportunity to stay out of the center of town and around the residents of Bocas. It is great to jump off the front deck for a swim any time of the day. I feel like we found a hidden gem. Just don't forget your bug spray :) Thanks Claudia for a great Holiday. We won't forget it anytime soon.

Reviewed 6 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Over the Water Rentals are a great value for your money. Claudia and Marvin, the property managers are very friendly and helpful. Cottages are well equipped for and extended stay.

“great place to relax and unwind”
Reviewed 21 June 2013 for a stay in April 2012

I thought the house was so nice and clean, it had everything I needed. Two porches that looked out over the water, and the hammock was great!
The bed was comfortable. The location alittle outside of town, was still easy to get around. Felt good being in the neighborhood, and I felt safe too. The owners are right next door, (handy), but I was left in peace which was appreciated. I have nothing negative to say! The owners are a young couple with children, they were very nice and helpful. Hope your enjoying your boat:)

“Simply amazing in more ways than one. A piece of paradise.”
Reviewed 6 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Everything about these rental homes is fantastic.
Bocas del toro town is rather hectic and noisy, however we wanted to stay on the mainland so we could go and explore every day.
We were more than pleasantly surprised to arrive at the orange house.
After a day of travel and then seeing the life of Bocas town we were delighted to find our new home for a few days was close enough to everything to walk in 15 mins or 0.50$ in a cab and far enough away to be in complete paradise.
The house itself is beautiful, overlooking the amazingly still waters - which you could simply sit and look at for hours. The varandera is a perfect setting for morning breakfast. Sundowners or simply to chill out.
We heard a few bad stories of theft on bocas and felt nothing but safe here.
The house itself has everything you need, a plush bathroom, large lounge/diner space and fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs the bedroom is huge, with a welcomed AC machine and then to top it all an amazing balcony with a perfect spot for a hammock and more room to view the still waters.
This really is a place where you can switch off.
Our trip was unfortunately interrupted with an abrupt accident. My husband broke his arm in the waters at Bluff beach. As you can imagine being some where so remote and with no knowledge of doctors etc we were in somewhat of an awful situation. HOWEVER Claudia and her husband were amazing and did everything they could to help us, from making us feel more in control, ice packs right through to taking us to the airport and begging the local airline to take us even though the flight was full. Claudia was even able to recommend a hospital and surgeon in Panama and made an appointment on our behalf, we simply wouldn't have known what to do if it were not for Claudia and her family. They have even stayed in contact to see how we are. The family live next door which is another reason you feel rather safe in this house and they are nothing but polite, informative and welcoming.

Back to the nicer parts of the trip. My husband managed to do some fishing from the side of the house, a real treat and so nice to be able to do something like that from the comfort of your own varenda.
We thoroughly recommend, Bocas, the over the water rentals - all houses are fab, but the orange one has the best views and the hosts themselves are awesome.

“Quiet Neighborhood on Busy Island”
Reviewed 19 January 2013 for a stay in August 2012

My husband and I stayed in the Purple House for a week. These bungalows are in a very quiet and safe neighborhood about a 15 minute walk from Bocas Town (or a .50 taxi ride!). After spending the day in Bocas Town or on a tour with a bunch of other people, it was nice to return to our bungalow and sit and read in the hammock. We took a peek at the Orange Bungalow as well and it was beautiful!! Too bad it was booked during our stay. But the houses are very clean and comfortable. A safe is in the bedroom and all the windows and doors lock if you're worried about your things. There is generally someone always there anyways in the main house. Nearby, there are some local restaurants which was a nice change from the busier places in town and also a grocery store a few minutes away if you choose to cook yourself!
