“Perfect Getaway for Couples in Bocas del Toro”
Reviewed 20 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

This family-run villa on Isla Colon is the perfect getaway for couples looking for a quieter alternative away from the hustle of Bocas town. Located only 3 km from the central tourist area in Bocas town, you can easily walk, bike or taxi ($4) into town in no time at all.
The Cottrell family (Steve, Angie, Connor, Reise, and Wes) who own the property are the nicest hosts and are very responsive to your needs.
What we loved here:
-big, private pool with lounge chairs
-large covered outdoor living space including solid wood dining table/chairs, sitting area with comfy furniture, awesome ping pong table, and barbecue
-beautiful, immaculately kept gardens surrounding the villa with many cool birds that visited daily
-listening to the waves at night
-bikes and kayaks provided free of charge
-boat tours arranged with Wes, which left directly from the beach out front. No going to town and hunting down tour operators. Wes bent over backwards to position his boat under a sloth on sloth island and then climbed up into the tree to get us a great photo. He is awesome!
-high speed internet that was 100% reliable - a rare find on vacation; also Netflix!
-a new air conditioning unit that was super quiet and worked perfectly
-quiet beach, with beautiful, wooden Adirondack chairs just for us to enjoy the view
-homemade banana bread delivered one morning with a sweet note attached
-most of all, the Cottrell family themselves. We will miss them!

What we didn't like:
-LEAVING! :(

Highly recommended for the traveler who seeks a quiet vacation spot, and wants the option to prepare food at home.

“THE BEST LAND RENTAL ON ISLA COLON!”
Reviewed 9 January 2018 for a stay in November 2017

The villa with private pool is very luxurious and just steps from the beach.
The Cottrell family go above and beyond to make your stay very special. Angie made us brownies and banana bread that was amazing! During our stay we had a pet emergency back home and ended up having to put our dog asleep. We were very upset about this, but the family was there for us offering hugs and condolences.
A must do when staying here is to take boat trips with Wesley. They are so much fun and you come back with an experience you will treasure for a lifetime! Anytime we had a question about where to eat, what to do Angie & Steve would give us very valuable recommendations. They have bikes and kayaks that you can use and taxis come by very frequently for trips into town. Look no more for a place to stay....you will come here as visitors, but leave as friends!

“An incredible experience overall”
Reviewed 30 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Thank you so much to Angie and Steve and their boys. The Experience here at their wonderful bed and breakfast has been peaceful, adventurous, relaxing, and stimulating all at the same time. They have been very accommodating and resourceful with there network of reliable people and the with the use of the facilities including the pool and the bikes that have allowed us to have a full and diverse experience , not to mention the fabulous boat tour that Wesley (their son) had taken us out on to check out some of the other beaches and Islands.

It has been a clean safe and wonderful experience. We will stay here the next time we come back for sure!

We have thought of every detail! From cleanliness to security to relaxation! Private tours from the Villas dock, your own private pool that you don't share with anyone else,and complimentary bikes and kayaks for exploring! Catered meals, comfortable bed, and NETFLIX , and high speed internet! We are directly on the beach, not across the street, close to town for convenience but far enough away for quiet! We offer more than others and a comparable price!

“Postcard Perfect Beachfront Rental”
Reviewed 22 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

person found this review helpful

My wife and I travel alot. We came to Panama for a five week vacation and rented a house in Altos del Maria for that period of time. However, gypsies at heart,we decided to visit Farallon, Boquete and Bocas del Toro to get to know more of this extraordinary country.

We appreciate boutique style rentals whether hotel, bed and breakfast or private guest houses. We look for properties that are well-maintained, well-managed and which offer additional value-added services to their guests. Additionally, we require secure properties where we and our personal property are not at risk.

We stayed at Villa Winona, the poolside guesthouse of Villa Paraiso's Main Villa.
This rental is ideal for couples and provides everything most couples could ever want including two kayaks, matching his and hers bikes and your very own boat and boat captain available at the beachfront dock 50 meters away. We went out and enjoyed some of Bocas' finest restaurants but were offered excellent local catering services with delivery to our Villa.

This property is better than its photos and website suggest and is very secure. It is truly postcard perfect and offered a respite from the hustle and bustle of our workaday world. The sun rises are spectacular, the island pace intoxicating and sleeping in that bed was an elixir for harried minds and tired bodies. In three days we never used the air conditioner even once as the ceiling fans provided all the cooling necessary.

It's hard not to go on about the property and its owners. Steve, his wife Angie and now their sons personally manage the property and it's obviously their labor of love. Everything is meticulously maintained and we felt comfortable at all times. The bed, towels and linens were of noteworthy quality and although the Main Villa is Steve and Angie's home, we never saw them during our stay and the entire covered porch,recreational area, pool and beach were exclusively ours.

We were impressed with the property, its amenities and administration. We will definitely visit again and will highly recommend it to others.

“Paradise Villa! Exactly what the name says!”
Reviewed 17 December 2017 for a stay in December 2017

Just returned from a vacation with my wife in Bocas Del Toro/Isla Colon and we stayed at Villa Paraiso. Just as the name translates to "Paradise Villa". This place is paradise! Steve, Angie and their sons go out of their way to make your stay at their place fantastic. They have several amenities at no cost that others don't offer. The pool was great after a long day of riding bikes or walking in to town. If you are planning a trip to this area give some consideration to Villa Paraiso we completely enjoyed our stay.

So happy to hear that! We have worked hard to think of everything! We have complimentary bikes and kayaks to explore Bocas by sea or by land.We have our own private boat and captain for catered exploration of the islands! If you want to relax at the Villa you have your own private pool that no one else shares with you! Ping pong, books and Netflix! You can eat out or have our chef cater your meals and bring them to your poolside dining overlooking the ocean! It doesn't get any better than this!

“Incredible experience. We will be back!”
Reviewed 8 December 2017 for a stay in October 2017

I cannot begin to explain what an incredible experience it was to stay at Villa Paraiso. My wife and I spent 8 days in Bocas for our Honeymoon and cannot wait to go back. Willa Wiona was the perfect secluded little getaway experience we were hoping for. It was private and seclusive with out own pool and beach area. The Cottrell's really made the entire experience for us. They were so helpful when we needed them for recommendations and directions. We genuinely felt like we were staying with family, but when we weren't asking for questions they let us have our privacy. The property felt very safe and was extremely well kept. We can't thank them enough for such a great experience that we will never forget.
