“Would do it again in a heartbeat”
Reviewed 7 March 2018 for a stay in February 2018

Stayed with a group of friends. Easy access, beautiful, simple little place.
Would definitely stay here again. Should just know that you can't swim on this beach, as goes for basically everywhere on this side of the island.

“Great Retreat with Amazing Views”
Reviewed 23 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Bastimentos is a wonderful island and this is a great place to enjoy it. We're really glad we booked a spot with a wonderful deck/porch with a view because it rained and we could enjoy the ocean and waves even though we couldn't do everything we had hoped to. Bring sturdy washable shoes and clothes and water shoes to best take advantage of the island. The island on the community was wonderful and getting there from Panama City (a flight, very short taxi ride and then beautiful water taxi ride) was hassle free and easy. The food at FireFly which is almost steps away was incredible and we went into Bocas almost daily which was easy and fun. We'll be back next year!

“Beautiful House but wish I knew a few important details....”
Reviewed 12 January 2018 for a stay in December 2017

The house is beautiful and was comfortable for the 4 adults that stayed there over Christmas 2017. However, I think the description should tell you that there is no hot water. Also, that you must carry in your drinking water which is not so easy given the boat taxi ride necessary to and from the main island. Also, we did not dare swim because we learned that Old Bank, which is just around the point, does not have a sewage disposal system so the water is unsafe to swim in. This is confirmed by the debris all over the beach. This is disappointing as the beach and water is so very inviting. While these things were disappointing we still enjoyed our stay. Dinner as great right next store at the Firefly and the boat taxi is easy to get and the dock is very close to this house.

Hi
There is hot water, I wish you would have let Nina our manager know. She would have someone look at the hot water system immediately. All homes built require a septic system as our house had this requirement when built. We have enjoyed swimming in the ocean. There are grocery stores less than 10 minute walk from the house which sells bottled water. I am sorry your trip was a disappointment. Carolyn

“Beach front piece of paradise”

Loved staying at this modern open beachfront home in February 2017 with 2 other good friends for a surf vacation. Its on the windward side of island so you stay cool on hot days and the big open deck was perfect for playing cards and relaxing. Found a couple trees right out front to hang a hammock from. Easy access to great restaurant next door, The Firefly, and most importantly only 5 min walk to boatdock where we got short rides to the local surfbreaks. Hope to go back

“Stunning and gorgeous property! ”
Reviewed 14 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

people found this review helpful

We stayed here 4 days in April 2017. This property is beyond beautiful. It's a short 5 min walk from the port to the door. We were able to walk it with small suitcases. 

 It has two full bedrooms while the living room has a pullout that can be used as a bed. 

There's also a front porch area where you can sit and enjoy the daily stunning sunsets and wine. 

The house is new and surrounded by lush vegetation. It's steps away from the beautiful rocky beach and you get to hear the sounds of the ocean all day and night. This was one of my favorite features. 

Bath and beach towels were provided for us. The bathrooms were also very nicely done and modern. The water was hotter than lukewarm but still ok. 

The house is well kept and we had Clarissa the renting contact accessible at all times to help with questions or recommendations. 

Areas around the path to thr house was dark but with out phone flashlights we were able to see and always felt safe even when coming back late at night. The house comes with large beautiful windows and light curtains so the light comes in early. 

No stove to cook but it was fine for us since we were enjoying the local cuisine and restaurants. It came with a microwave and fridge. 

I would stay here again in a heartbeat and highly recommended. Don't think twice, just book it!! This is the most beautiful house in bastimentos and hope to be back. 

Try the Firefly restaurant next door. The food is amazing!
