A few friends and I stayed at this house in late March of 2014. Our expectations were surpassed in every single way. The location alone is worth every penny, not to mention the absolutely amazing views of ocean wildlife from the back porch. We loved being "off the grid", and yet still not too far away from town. Kayaking, snorkeling, gazing, napping, eating, swimming, cannon-balling, laughing, listening, pointing (at all the varied fish) fishing, snorkeling some more, and just appreciating the beauties around us were how we filled our days. Just be warned, however - don't stay here unless you're prepared to have all your subsequent vacations seem quite lame! This place sets the vacation bar very very high.
I've traveled to many places on this big blue planet, and this could quite possibly be my favorite spot ever. Highly recommend staying here if you're lucky enough to be traveling to Panama. As Arnold would say, "I'll be back"!
Now that we are back in fridgid Canada we are constantly dreaming about our wonderful holiday in Panama. Our week in Bocas in this beautiful house on stilts was really like a week in Paradise. Everything is well thought through, from the kitchen to the boat rides and the location cann"t be beat. Leo, our boat taxi driver was always ready for us and super friendly.Snorkeling off the deck and kajaking along the shore were activities we reapeated daily. One of our hightlights were a day trip with Amazing jungle tours with a boat tour to Bastimentos Island, up the river through Mongrove forest, a jungle tour and a visit of a bat cave. Our guide Worrio had an amazing knowledge of plants and was a lot of fun.
All in all we can just say: Thank you, Mark, for sharing your place, we hope to be back one day, and there is so much more to explore.

PS One hint: take the advice seriosly about the no-see-ums which show up for 30 mins at dusk, 2 of our group of 6 were reacting allergic to them. Lesson learned and we made sure to cover up or use bug spray.
This is a fantastic place to just get away from it all. Some of the best snorkeling you'll ever do is right off the porch. Beautiful Starfish Beach just a short boat ride away. Not only was the place lovely, well positioned and well equipped, but the owner was very helpful and his boatman was always there to get us there and around. Although we cook in a lot, it was a short boat ride to town where good restaurants were plentiful. We look forward to a return visit.
If someone looks for a piece of paradise, Coral View is THE place! Wonderfull and peacefull location, the only sounds you ear are waves, birds and, faraway, monkeys. The house is perfectly manteined, and all the people of the staff are friendly and helpfull. Only the mosquitos were unconfortable, but, at the end, every paradise should have a kind of snake!
Wow! Trying to describe this vacation is like telling someone what Machu Picchu is like. You just need to experience it for yourself : ) We had an absolute blast! 3 adults and 2 twelve year old boys. Never once did I hear, "Mom, I'm bored!". We spent 3 nights and considered staying longer, but decided we didn't have enough time. Mark is wonderful, Leo is wonderful and even Winston (el perro) is wonderful. Be sure you go on the cave adventure--you get to swim thru part of it and there is a waterfall in there!! We will definitely be coming back!
I cannot say enough about this place, from the photos that are linked to this site they DO NOT Coral View house justice. The house has all the things you need for a comfortable stay from the 2 bathrooms with 2 fully functioning showers it makes it a paradise getaway.
I stayed here for 3 nights at the end of June with 5 other people, my only regret was that it was not enough time at this house. Mark was great at coordinating our arrival and transportation from Isla Colon, he really ensured that we had all the essentials that one would need from the local grocery store. The boat ride which was included 2x a day from Isla Colon to the house was just under 10 minutes, which is great because you can easily escape the night life while having breath taking views of the ocean that is crystal clear.
As far as when my friends and I stayed at the house there was a caretaker named LEO, he was phenomenal in meeting our requests and ensuring we had the best vacation one could ask for. It was made easy for us since Leo lived right behind the house on the island, here was at our side by a moments notice. Leo did everything from preparing the fish that we caught off the house's porch, to assisting us with the ocean kayaks and snorkeling gear that was at the house.
Overall I cannot say enough about this house as I am very happy to have stayed there for the 3 nights. Once again the service and amentities ( even wifi access at the house! ) was outstanding, and day trips were arranged at the snap of a finger. Mark I will be staying here again in the near future for at least 5 days to really escape daily life and get the peace of paradise.
The area of Bocas Del Toro is a wonderful archipelago. On one side is the open ocean for those who like the waves: surfers; fishermen; etc. The other side is protected by the islands and an extensive reef system creating a very large calm water area. Rather like a lake but filled with all the wonders of the Caribbean sea. The opposite direction is the mainland of Panama with views of the mountains that constitute the continental divide. We are very lucky to have the best of all worlds.
Other Activities: shopping, boating, kayaking, health/beauty spa
