The space

Tranquil tropical paradise on the Caribbean ocean

Banana tree and coconut palms line the walkway past the Spa to the guest rooms, main house and the dock. The full kitchen gives you a choice whether to cook in or go out. We are never too busy to answer your questions or make suggestions.

The property is basic and clean but note that the showers and kitchen pipes empty straight into the sea underneath (as do neighbours) which makes swimming from there questionable. Important to note that there is constant traffic of people through the property.

Grey water poses no issues here. We try to use biodegradable products when ever possible. We're sorry you minded our family atmosphere. I did imform you right at the beginning there would be people coming through.

This is a perfect location for people who want to experience the Bocas the right way! Myself and four guys stayed a week to surf and fish and had plenty of room for our gear and to relax. The bathroom and sleeping accommodations worked out perfectly and Don And Donna were on top of any issue or request. It's great to watch the sunrise and listen to Bocas Town wake up in the morning from the top of the dock. "The Little Spa" is top notch too make sure you take advantage for it because it's so convenient! Thanks D&D!!

I stayed in the By the Sea Casitas with 2 friends for a week and we had a wonderful time! Anne-Michelle, Doug and Donna were great hosts, Donna especially made sure that everything was ok for us and was so lovely to hang out with. The main house is lovely, it's on stilts over the water and is a great place to hang out, the bedrooms were really lovely and spotless.

This place is absolutely lovely! The main living area is poised over the water and behind it on land are three cabanas for sleeping. It's on the edge of town, so you can walk or bike everywhere and it has a dock so you can be picked up and dropped off for your excursions right from the house. Donna was an awesome host - she helped us arrange everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay.

Anne-Michele was a very kind and helpful host. We had bad luck with the weather during our stay and the sea was not clear, so we could not swim out there or watch at the carribean fishes. However the terrase offers a wonderful view to the sea and is very nice to sit there. The kitchen/living room looks nice and is equiped with everything which is nessessary. The sleeping rooms are like the description in the announce says.

We are from the US and now retired in Panama. We traveled many places before settling here. We like to go out on the water whenever it is nice weather, beaching, boating, swimming, snorkeling, paddle board or kayak. We couldn't live here without our boat. Donna can take care of your every spa need with her spa right on the premises. We can help arrange what tours you wish such as surf lessons, catamaran trips or restaurant recommendations.
