Overview

Bocas del Toro House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 10 people comfortably

This Oceanfront property is a rare masterpiece of interior design and architecture and is located in the charming adventurous town of Bocas Del Toro, Panama. Bocas Del Toro has still kept its rustic charm while providing modern amenities such as excellent phone coverage, high speed internet, and an international airport.

Casa Del Mar has a dock attached to the back of the house so that water taxis can take you to restaurants, bars, and beaches. You can also rent a boat with captain to pick you up right at the house and tour the vast natural beauty and excitement that has made Bocas Del Toro famous. We have purchased the rights of possession for two beautiful beaches (Polo & Peters) on Bastimentos Island that can be used exclusively by our guests.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed

Excellent! Had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

The house was excellent overall. It made you feel like a local in Bocas. Also, it is super centric. It has a lot of open space so we could enjoy being outside.

Numar was very helpful in every way. Would recommend it and go back again.

Beautiful house, great location, wonderful manager

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful place to stay and I couldn't think of a better location – we were a party of 8 adults and had plenty of space. The house is walking distance to many interesting restaurants and bars and next door to a supermarket. Water access for convenient pick-up and drop-off by water taxis. There is even a boat moored at the house and you can schedule the captain to take you to one of the many beautiful nearby beaches. Everyone associated with Casa del Mar was fantastic! Numar, the property manager, was incredibly helpful with household tips and booking tours. In fact, she arranged a boat trip and a spearfishing trip on very short notice (we called her after 6pm and were good to go on both trips by the next morning) and she even arranged for the cook greet us with an amazing dinner on our first night, and fresh lobster on the second night!

The house itself was a delightful Caribbean Mansion! Very spacious with comfy beds, but also - and this is important - very well air-conditioned. There is an awesome second story deck that overlooks the water and the wi-fi was better than what we had in Panama City. Overall, it was a fantastic place to spend my first time in Bocas. Would highly recommend!

Fantasic experience

  • 5 of 5

It was great having our own boat with a captain that will take you anywhere you want to go. The house manager Numar was super helpful and professional. I wanted to go spearfishing two days and she called around and arranged a guide (our regular captain didn't do spearfishing trips) for the very next day. It was a great experience and Numar made all the logistics super easy for us. The house itself is fantastic. Very spacious, right on the water, literally next door to a market. I wouldn't even look at other properties if I came back to Bocas, I would just book this one again.

Perfect for a big group

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our group - 4 couples and two singles. A mansion with a boat! Air conditioned and well appointed. The manager was willing and able to arrange many wonderful excursions for us - snorkeling, sailing, and amazing home cooked dinners. Would highly recommend!

Large house with great ocean view

  • 5 of 5

This property is a very big house with great accommodations. Our hostess Numar was extremely helpful, courteous and always available if we had questions. The view from the 2nd floor deck was awesome as our group sat our there every evening to wind down for the day. The only downside to the house was lack of a good access to the ocean. You need to open 4 different different locks and there was not a good way to "jump off the dock" into the ocean. There also wasn't a way to get back on the dock once you jumped in. Other than that, we were very pleased with this property!

We also stayed at the house, and totally agree with the other review above. Numar was very friendly and helpful, she arranged for a chef to come in and cook us dinner one evening, and was a contact when my grandson lost his wallet on a trail ride. The upstairs deck was marvelous, we enjoyed our stay.

Extremely Disappointing

  • 1 of 5

Very Disappointing

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Having owned a rental property in Costa Rica for 7 years and knowing how important it is to provide a rental experience that meets the expectations of the traveller, I cannot say how disappointed we were with this property. We convinced our family to join us in Bocas Del Toro and stay at Casa Del Mar based on the photo's of the house and the amenities listed on the VRBO site. Advertised as an executive rental capable of housing 10 people, the house can sleep ten people, but it is by no means equipped to cater to more than 5-6 people. We arrived to discover that the house is run down, dirty, sparsly furnished with poor attention to detail. When questioned about the VRBO pictures versus what we discovered, the property manager informed us they were taken some five years ago. The sand coloured tile floors throughout were actually black from not having been cleaned, some of the appliances did not work and there was little or no hot water for most of our stay (10 days). The balcony overlooking the water was the highlight of the house, however there were only 5 chairs for the dining table of 10 and two loungers of which we had to repair both before we could use them. We had to move one of the couches from the house to the balcony to accommodate our family. The property manager brought in cleaners to clean the floors (it took 2 days) and replaced the toaster, frying pans, pots and coffee cups and provided new dish towels as there were none. I sent an email to the property manager asking for some sort of restitution for the inconvenience and poor state of the house, but received no response. If you are seeking an executive rental in Bocas Del Toro, Casa Del Mar is definitely not what it is advertised, and certainly NOT worth the $$ they charge, and it is unprofessional of the owner to post pictures that are not current nor to advertise this house as an upscale property capable of satisfying a group of ten. The highlight of our visit to Bocas were the Restaurants and the Tours, specifically the Oreba Chocolate Tour, a "must see".
