About Connor 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!
Connor Cottrell purchased this Villa in 2007
Why Connor Cottrell chose Bocas del Toro Province
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 constructed own beautiful Villa.
What makes this Villa unique
This property is the ONLY vacation rental located directly on beach and with your private pool, that you don't share with anyone else! The soft sand bottom, with no ripes or currents makes it a great place to enjoy the Caribbean Sea!

For us this was the best place to stay in Bocas, it was peaceful and quiet! Our private pool was great for cooling off and just a couple of steps down to the beach and ocean! The Villa itself is very comfortable and had all that we needed. Angie and Steve, the owners were amazing and took care of all we needed. The pictures on this site are exactly as it is, beautiful and comfortable. It was a short taxi ride to town, cost from $1.50 to $2.00 depending on where you are going. They also have bikes available to ride to town or the grocery stores.
We had an amazing and relaxed two weeks and would certainly recommend this property!
Amazing stay in bocas at villa wiona
This is by far the best place to stay in Bocas. The villa is amazing, the beach out front is great for swimming and kayaking, and it’s the best location on the island. The pool was awesome and the place was all ours! You have 5 restaurants within walking distance and town is a quick ride away. We loved renting an atv to ride through the jungle and get into town. The town is very safe and the the villa was so relaxing and beautiful. Angie set up a boat tour for us which was great for snorkeling. Everything was made so simple for us which made it very relaxing. If I make it back to bocas this is definitely the only place I would stay! Wish we could have stayed longer.
It's what dreams are made of! We are so happy that after having us on your wish list for so many years that you were finally able to grab available dates and enjoy the Best Bocas has to offer! Looking forward to next time!

We are happy that you enjoyed your stay! The Private pool and beachmake Villa Paraiso the perfect place to getaway and relax!
Great location... not too far from town and surf breaks!
Great location in Bocas. The room was nicely decorated and comfortable. Steve was very friendly upon on arrival and Angie as well. Steve told us about the amenities and how to get around the island. Hot water is limited for showers and hand washing...just an awareness for those that like long hot showers. There was a lot of privacy this just a few friendly encounters with their sons. Thank you! Bocas we'll be back!
So sorry that during your stay the entire island was under a red alert drought warning for a very rare lack of rain, and we needed to request that our guests take short showers. Steve and I, as well as our adult sons, who live in their own houses on the property, are always here to help when needed and disappear when not, to make sure you have the perfect vacation!
