Why the Owner Chose Bocas del Toro: Our family has always loved the tropics. We would travel the Caribbean to escape the cold Wisconsin winters. Stumbling across Bocas Del Toro, Panama, we fell in love with this Archipelago of islands. Crystal clear, calm waters on the inside of the islands make it great for snorkeling, kayaking and water sports. Waves on the outside make it a world class surf spot. The beautiful, warm friendly people enticed us to make this place our home. We found this unique piece of beachfront land with a warm, soft, sand beach in front and palm trees reaching for the sun. Without barely thinking we bought it and only 2 years ago constructed own beautiful Villa.

The Unique Benefits at this House: It is peaceful and quiet filled with the sounds of nature. We are nestled in a tropical garden that is fringed with coconut filled palm trees, and tropical fruits and flowers. The views of the ocean are breathtaking at all times of the year. Star filled nights or a full moon shining across the ocean and lighting the pool for a night swim make this place a unique vacation spot. Each day will await you with a new adventure. Tours to the Zapatilla National park, Dolphins Bay, Red Frog Beach or Bird Island to name only a few. Walk to the nearby Botanical Gardens or bike to the Caves. Explore the ocean in front of the Villa using the house kayaks or surf at some world class surf spots only 5 minutes from your door. Snorkel or dive some of the most beautiful reefs in the Caribbean sea or take a boat trip to the outer waters for some deep sea fishing. This will truly be a vacation that you will not find anywhere else.

We enjoy the sun, ocean, beach and all the activities that go with it. So, we decided to trade in dreary winters for a life on the beach. We love waking up to the quiet sounds of the jungle, the monkeys, parrots and birds of the tropics and going to sleep to the relaxing sound of the waves lapping on the beach . We also enjoy people from all over the world, and the blend of cultures in the islands makes this a wonderful experience. All these things have shared in bringing our family to Bocas Del Toro, Panama and to make it our home. We are looking forward to sharing the dream with you!

Best Bocas Stay EVER

My 5th or 6th Bocas Trip – this one was outstanding!! Enjoyed our stay immensely. Lovely touches, great service, attention to detail in solid construction and tasteful décor. Loved sleeping to the sound of the waves and awaking to that view! Your guest book is very thorough and we enjoyed many of the services, restaurants, drivers, etc.. that you recommended. The use of your bicycles was a bonus as well, we rode to Paki's Surf Hostal and enjoyed some great food (lobster and goat cheese salad) and ambiance. Appreciated the menus in your book, we planned that meal in advance :) As a fellow Vacation Rental Owner and Manager in Panama, I am likely more particular than most, and I was totally impressed! It's not just about 4 walls and a roof (although this property is outstanding!), it's about people, genuine hospitality and caring. This, we received from the moment we arrived.. yet we enjoyed respectful privacy during our stay. Our hosts were always available when we had questions. We have to give a shout of to Bill, one of your recommended taxi drivers. He's a hoot and all around great guy!

Muchas Gracias Angie and Steve!

A Little Chunk of Paradise in Bocas Del Toro

Steve and Angie (and the kids) are very hospitable, and pulled out all the stops to ensure we had a great stay, our third at Villa Paraiso. Angie made various arrangements for us, from babysitting and maid service to making sure we had a good dinner delivered on the first day we arrived. Based on the location, it is easy to get into Bocas Town to buy groceries for the fridge if you want to cook, or just head into town for dinner and night life. We took our 2 year old daughter with us, Anige set up a cot for her, and she had a great time. I can't say enough about the place - spotlessly clean, great location, your own private pool and beach, this is a great gem of a vacation spot.

My girlfriend and I stayed here for 5 days and loved every minute of it. The owners are extremely nice people and were very helpful with everything. The location is perfect, you are just far enough from Bocas town to have your peace and quiet, but close enough to get there by short bike ride or taxi. The villa is beautiful and you are just a few steps from the beach, as well as having access to a pool, bikes, snorkeling gear, and kayaks. I would absolutely recommend staying here to anyone and hope to go back some day.

Angie and Steve have a wonderful place and are extremely helpful in every aspect. Best thing was all the little stuff they had- cell phone, Internet, suggestions, private pool, bikes, cooler, and beer in the fridge when we got there. We had great times. NOTE- riding bikes to Playa Dragos is NOT for those out shape (can I buy a second gear ?) it was grueling. Fortunately, there is a beautiful place waiting at the end, along with a cold drink and you can take a taxi back.
