Why Angie Cottrell chose Bocas del Toro

We built this property on one of the nicest beaches in Bocas for the enjoyment of our guests. This property was finished and opened in late December of 2011.

What makes this villa unique

This is one of the only beachfront properties in all the archipelago of islands in Bocas! You are literally 20 steps from the Caribbean Sea on a soft sand beach. You can enjoy a swim in the warm waters of the sea and then return to take a dip in the refreshing waters of the pool! We are close to town for convenience yet far enough away for relaxation!

Peaceful, Clean, Comfortable and Quiet! Just what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

My wife Lucy and I stayed at Villa Paraiso for 4 wonderful nights, this villa, the island and the owners exceeded our expectations. It was so nice to have a private pool, semi private beach, bicycles, kayaks, snorkeling gear and the beautiful gardens all to ourselves. So quiet at night all you hear is the waves of the ocean and an occasional howler monkey or other creature. If you want excitement and a party stay in Bocas Town, if you want peace and relaxation then this is the place for you!!

It just doesn't get any better than this!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in Bocas Del Toro at Villa Paraiso for an entire month from January 15 through February 12, 2015! We rented both casitas and invited a few sets of friends to join us during our stay. This is the best vacation we have ever had; Isla Colon is a beautiful island. We lucked out when we found Villa Paraiso; it is perfect. The location couldn’t be any better, close enough to town for easy access but far enough away to relax and enjoy peace and quiet. The grounds and buildings are beautiful, the accommodations are very comfortable and the pool and beach are outstanding. The Cottrell family was very kind and took great care of us; exceptional hosts. Angie’s treats were always welcomed and devoured quickly. The staffs they employ were always courteous and responsive; they take outstanding care of the property and the guest. The bikes came in handy; it’s a nice ride to town. Having a phone provided with the property was the best! I had stressed over being able to communicate with my family but it was actually very easy and affordable. I really wish we had taken the opportunity to have Wes cook dinner for us while we were there. I’ll put that at the top of our - to do list for next time. There will be a next time and I’m already looking forward to it. Bocas Del Toro and Villa Paraiso are both extraordinary. Sending big hugs to the Cottrell family! Until next time…..

Owner's Response: We can't tell you how happy it makes us that all our hard work pays off when our guests enjoy the fruits of our labor! We have worked hard to have built, and maintain our exquisite beach front Villas, both with their own private pools. Also, to think of everything our guests may want and need. Look forward to having you back again!

La isla de la Aventura

  • 5 of 5

He viajado por todas las playas famosas del Caribe, Cancún y Hawái y ahora tengo que añadir este resort Villa Paraíso por ser muy singular, pues pasé dos días y dos noches que fueron inolvidables por el entorno, el ambiente, la ubicación, el lugar, las instalaciones, las casitas que son verdaderamente un lujo y sobretodo la atención que brindan que lo hacen sentir a uno seguro y con la confianza de poder disfrutar cómodamente sin preocupación de nada y descansar y relajarse plácidamente. Un bonito punto para vacacionar fuera de la cuidad y del bullicio que uno pudiera encontrar en los resorts más famosos del mundo. El sito estratégico en la isla lo hacen muy divertido y acogedor que uno no quisiera terminar su estadía en este resort que es como una isla del Paraíso.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful week. You made us and our friends feel very welcome from the day we arrived. Thanks for the treats, brownies and cake too! We loved the set up of Las Castias, the pool and the ocean. Your recommendations of things to do were terrific and we loved Chris' deliveries of 3 dinners during the week! Starfish Beach, Jampan snorkeling excursion to Coral Cay, Zapatilla Islands and Finca los Monos were terrific!

awesome!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well - what a gorgeous place to stay - we did well in picking the casitas! Everything was super clean - all the time, and really beautiful grounds!!! The help we received via Angie and Steve was immeasurable - from lost luggage to answering our every little (AND MANY!) questions, to helping us talk with local people who we couldn't understand on the phone sometimes! Both Steve and Angie were extremely helpful in their tips about Bocas, where to go, what to do.

They arranged for a local fisherman, Bizi, to take us here, there and everywhere. We had a cell phone which proved unbelievably useful - and the minutes were already on there, almost enough for about 12 days worth! I've noted before that people mention "Attention to Detail" and this is very true of the casitas!!! Right down to the "goodies" that (apparently) BOTH Angie and Steve baked for us every few days :) they were awesome. Only unfortunate part of where we were, was, the beach was a little rougher than I'd expected, due mostly I think to the fact that people there were saying the "seas were rough over the past couple of months and there was a lot of rain before we arrived." Had only hoped to have a calmer beach to swim in. But I took dips in the pool quite often, anyway!

Some super helpful things, all of which were unexpected (having done "self-catering" before) were: toilet paper being supplied, having big H20 jugs supplied per week (BIG bonus!!!!), beach towels (no need to pack your own), umbrellas!

Really we picked the perfect spot for 4 of us. It's of course pricier than a lot of the places in Bocas town - but was perfect for our needs, and really, you get what you pay for!! Cheap cab rides into town, or to Bluff Beach, or wherever, take care of that...

Oh! And having Chris, the chef from New York, in to cook for us - another added bonus! $15 a plate for some awesome meals plus salad, dessert one time.... great plus if you simply didn't feel like leaving the Casitas. We will spend more time there next time, for sure. We had too much exploring to do, so we actually almost "wasted" our time there this trip... Definitely could've used more lounging around in the pool-time...

To sum up my review - Steve and Angie and their Casitas are THE best! Anything you need or want or question, they try their hardest to take care of immediately! And they didn't make us feel like pests, either, which was a bonus!!!

thank you thank you! can't wait to return! xo

Right here at the Villa you will be able to relax and swim in the pool, walk the beach, or float in the calm waters of the Caribbean Sea. Rest and read a number of different house novels, or choose a movie from our selection, and watch them on the LCD flat screen TV. You can take the bikes and go for a ride out to Bluff Beach to walk the wide 3 mile stretch of orange sand beach and look for shells, along the way eat lunch at Paki's Place or at Playa Bluff Restaurant. Try riding horses along the beach and enjoy the scenery. You can visit Starfish Beach and see hundreds of starfish in the crystal clear waters, and then have lunch at the beach restaurant. Along the way to starfish beach you can see the caves, where church services are held. There are also several different boat tours available. See the dolphins feeding in Dolphins bay or take the boogie boards and ride the waves at beautiful Red Frog Beach, you can visit the 2 white sand, palm tree ringed, Zapatilla Islands at the National Marine Park, while there you can take the boardwalk through the jungle and see the wildlife in the inner island. You can take another tour to the Sal Creek Indian Village, as you wind down the mangrove covered creek to enter the village and then check out the local culture. There are also butterfly gardens, botanical gardens, and chocolate farm tours. All this is just a sampling of what there is to see and do! This archipelago of hundreds of islands offers many different experiences. Then you come back in the evening to relax at one of the most exquisite places on the island!
