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.

About Angie Cottrell

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!

Angie Cottrell purchased this villa in 2007

Guestbook comments from the owner

Angie & Steve:Thanks for the wonderful 2 weeks in your lovely home. We had some apprehensions before we arrived as this was our first time booking a vacation without going through a travel agent but from the first email we received from Angie we knew we’d be in good hands. Not only did your home exceed our expectations but your family made our vacation a very, pleasant and memorable one. We’ll definitely put Villa Paraiso down in our places to return to!

Absolute best vacation we have ever taken

  • 5 of 5
We only got to stay a couple of days but it was absolutely amazing!!! We stayed in the suite. This place was definitely the cleanest place I have ever stayed in in Panama or the states. Angie is great to help you in anyway and super friendly!! We didn't get to try chef Wes's cooking but we did get to have Chris cater in dinner one night and it was the best food we have ever ordered. We ordered the Lobster and the yellow fin tuna. We really enjoyed taking the kayaks that are provided out one day. This is such a relaxing enjoyable place to come. The beach right outside your door is so nice and clean. If you come to Boca's, Villa Paraiso is definitely the place to stay. It exceeded our expectations!!

Amazing Time!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Villa Paraiso for 5 nights and had the time of our lives. First of all Bocas Del Toro is truly a piece of heaven on earth! We enjoyed everything about this trip, from riding ATV's all around the beaches and jungles, to just relaxing on a beautiful crystal clear beach at Zapatillas Island. What made the trip even more magical was Villas Paraiso, it truly was a great experience staying here. We did not have a chance to meet Steve, Angie, or Connor because they were gone for the week but we wanted to let them know we loved this place, we really truly enjoyed our stay here! Also if you plan on staying here make sure you have the house Chef, I believe his name was Wes, cook for you! My wife and I are major foodies and Chef Wes made the most delightful Lobster dinner for us that we will never forget. Easily one of the best lobster dinners we've ever had, make sure you ask for Chef Wes! Also just down the street there is a great restaurant called Guari Guari that you also must try. Overall an amazing experience, we cannot wait to come back!!

Best Spot in Bocas

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at Villa Paraiso for 8 nights. This is by far the best place to stay in Bocas. The location is perfect - on the beach, quiet and only a 5 minute taxi ride to town which cost $1.50/person. You will not find a nicer lodging option in Bocas and the Cottrell family are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. The house also comes with several complimentary perks like bicycles, snorkel gear, kayaks, and more. We highly recommend you rent a 4 wheeler from Flying Pirates (they have an exclusive to 1500 acres of jungle). We paid $200 for a 5 day rental and had a chance to see parts of the island you cannot see otherwise. Plenty of excellent dining options - be sure to check out the recommendations on TripAdvisor as that was our guide and you can't go wrong. Highly recommend!

A beautiful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I spent a week at the Villa and could have stayed a lifetime! Angie and Steve are wonderful hosts who genuinely want you to make the most of your stay. They have provided a guest book that is an excellent resource for places to eat, things to see, and day trips to take. The lanai is the perfect place sip your morning coffee and listen to the calls of the neighboring howler monkeys in rhythm with the crashing waves. The swimming pool is a great spot to cool off in the heat of the day. Villa Paraiso is a short drive outside of Bocas Town, but the local cabs had no problems finding the place and the bikes provided as part of the stay were definitely put to good use.

The people of Bocas are genuine and kind. The natural beauty of this island and the archipelago is something that will haunt you long after you've returned home. Villa Paraiso strikes that perfect balance between modern convenience and natural surroundings tied together with a little Midwestern hospitality. A beautiful home away from home.

Thank you Angie and Steve for being such wonderful hosts.

Best Bocas Stay EVER

  • 5 of 5
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

  • 5 of 5
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.
