I moved to Bocas del Toro in 2005 formally from Southern California. I have been renting my apartments out since completion of construction in 2006. I enjoy meeting all of the people from foreign lands and being able to show them the beauties of this lovely island archipelago.

Sandi Hodge purchased this apartment in 2005

When staying here you are far enough from town for the peace and quiet that is offered in the lush green rainforest surroundings but just steps from one of Bocas Town's most popular beaches - Big Creek. Staying in these luxurious apartments you are only 2.5 miles from town which makes for an easy commute to restaurants and nightlife. I love being in the middle of the rainforest but being able to walk out to the beach, ride my bike to other nearby beaches and it's a great launch point for tours to other islands and wildlife.

Quiet, secluded peaceful surroundings. Used as a home base it is perfect for all of your excursions. While sitting on the patio you can enjoy watching the many varieties of birds and listening to the wonderful activities of the animals living near by.

All previous reviews are accurate. Great location if you want to have some distance from the hustle and bustle of town, which is only a short ride away and close to nice beeches and the surf. Sandi is lovely, a perfect host and here apartments are well thought out so accommodate young and old, we travelled with our 2 year old and lived our stay there. Thanks Sandi

EVERYTHING AND MORE!

  • 5 of 5
Let me begin by saying that mt friends and I could not have asked for a better place to stay for our first trip to Panama. Sandi was helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcomed into her home.

The apartment was very clean, and had all the amenities one would need (bedding, cooking utensils, towels, cleaning supplies, etc.). The location was amazing and we were able to bike into town with bikes that Sandi provided. If biking isn't your cup of tea, the downtown area was just a short $3 taxi ride and Sandi provided a local phone to call cabs to come to the house.

Sandi is very well known and like in the Bocas community and she connected us with various people and businesses which made it very easy to coordinate activities throughout our trip (surfing, chocolate tour, etc.). Sandi even picked us up from the airport and took us into town to get groceries a few times.

I would definitely recommend this property to anyone traveling to Bocas. Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, a family vacation or just a trip with some friends, this property has everything you could possibly need!

Another plus of this home was the location. It was far enough from the hustle and bustle of downtown Bocas but also close enough that we were able to explore the restaurants, nightlife and other activities without much hassle. We absolutely loved our stay and we hope to come back very soon. Thanks for everything, Sandi!

Owner's Response: Girls, thank you so much for your review. I too enjoyed your company. A few weeks after you left the rain came. I am now doing laundry on a daily basis and offering water to all my guests. Thanks for understanding some of the demands of Bocas. I hope to see you back in July. Enjoy the Spring in Central park and good old NY. Much love, Sandi

COULDN'T HAVE ASKED FOR MORE!

Couldn't have asked for more!

This property was everything we could have asked for and needed during our stay in Bocas Town. The description and photos are accurate - the property was beautiful, wonderfully maintained and a perfect location. If you are looking to stay in a quiet place outside of town property is ideal. It was very easy to get to, especially with the bikes that Sandi has available for her guests. I already miss the beautiful and peaceful morning bike ride! The host was available, helpful and very accomodating. Thank you for making our stay a very memorable one!

EXCELLENT

  • 5 of 5
Casa Del Cazador is exactly as the pictures on the website! Beautifully fended gardens with exotic flowers & shrubs.  The beach is just down the road.  Sandi has bicycles you can use. The suite was ever so clean & we did not need or want for anything else.   Sandi was accommodating as she explained where to eat, shop & recommended activities. We highly recommend Casa del Cazador  for a relaxing & fun filled holiday.

WARM AND WATER

  • 5 of 5
That has been our mantra ever since we retired and we found it here. Our 2 week stay with Sandi was great; she is a great hostess. It was relaxing (because that's what we wanted), but there is lots to do. Don't miss Fincas Los Monos a short bike ride down the road. A surfer beach is a short ride in the other direction. We loved sitting on the patio and watching the birds, monkeys, sloth and visiting with Sandi's pets too. Sandi knows the area very well and can arrange all sorts of things to do. Talking to her at the patio Happy Hour was lots of fun. Thanks for making our stay so enjoyable!

Owner's Response: Thank you Barb and Steve for your review. I miss seeing you both in the morning. The sun is still shining and all is active here as far as pets and in the surrounding jungle. I hope the rest of your stay in Panama was pleasant. Keep on traveling and bring joy and laughter to your next host. All the best Sandi

SIX NIGHTS IN PARADISE

  • 5 of 5
I'm gald we chose to stay at this lovely house. The house is clean, peaceful and comportable. It's located in a nice neighborhood and only a 5 min drive from town.. It has a beautiful backyard, which is open to jungle. We had frequent visits of howler monkies and lots of beautiful birds. Beach is only a two hundred feet away. Sandi, the owner, is very friendly, welcoming and accomodating host. She picked us up at the boat when we arrived in Bocas. She would accomodate our frequent requests. She would call for taxi, arrange for our jungle tour and even let us use her bicycles during our entire stay. We had a great time is Bocas and look forward to returning again soon
