“Home away from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

I had such an amazing time in the peaceful Casitas. That I stayed an extra day! Which made for an excellent snorkeling adventure day at the beaches just close to Paraiso. I enjoyed listening to the waves hit the beach while watching a full moon rise. It was like being in paradise. Having the kitchen outside was awesome for cool morning breakfast and great grilled dinners at night. Not to mention the chance for a dip in the pool! I also enjoyed biking into the city, it was an experience that I've missed from growing up in a small town where everyone is friendly. I can't wait to go back again! It is truly home away from home for me!

I recently stayed with Angie and Steve in their lovely villas! Four of my girlfriends and I enjoyed the beautiful villa houses right on the beach. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful and helpful in so many ways to us! We will surely be returning to stay with them:) The town of Bocas del Toro was beautiful as well and we enjoyed touring around on our bikes provided by our hosts. We felt it was just the perfect distance out of town to be relaxing and quiet but getting into town was still easy and quick. I was very impressed with the landscaping around the villas... the greenery and tropical flowers were absolutely breathtaking!

Room Tip: We had 5 girls and the Villas (two separate villas that slept 3 people each) suited us perfectly. I...

We had an amazing time here in Bocas. The beaches are clean and fun for our 13 month old baby to play, We visited Red Frog Beach, Starfish and Zapatilla. The Oreba Chocolate tour was educational and with a good lunch, good chocolate! The Casitas were a perfect location. We used the bikes to get around, the pool we used at night, the beach right outside, and we felt safe. The waves at night was soothing and the wake up call from the birds around the villa was entertaining, a few mornings we would look around and count the different birds we saw. A few times we heard the howler monkeys. Thank you to Angie and Steve for recommendations and letting us enjoy the Casitas. We will highly recommend it to others who might like to travel to Panama.

This is without a doubt the BEST place to stay on Bocas Island! The Casitas are just perfect. You have an ocean front view and your own private access to the beach at anytime. Your own private pool if you want a break from the beach. An awesome outside kitchen to enjoy grilling in beautiful surroundings with a comfortable dining area to enjoy your meal, board games etc. The room is very "cozy" the beds are so comfortable you might just stay in bed and enjoy the view of the beach right from that spot. Its very quaint with a refrigerator, flat screen T.V., wi-fi, and air-conditioning (which we never needed because of the constant breeze) right at your fingertips. The main mode of transportation on the island is bikes and these are supplied during your stay if you'd like to take a 15min ride into town or see other parts of the island. I didnt even begin to tell you about Steve, Angie, and the boys which are the" icing on the cake". They are very pleasant and they will be sure all your needs are met! This is what makes a GREAT place an EXTRAORDINARY experience! You will only have regrets if you don't choose to stay here.

Room Tip: "fitness center" is via equipment at your disposal for "outdoor fitness center"...

This place was great! Angie, Steve and Wes were the nicest people and very laid back. The Villas were amazing and run very well. Everyday we enjoyed going out to do an adventure. We rode the quads (highly recommended) and went to the caves. For place to eat go to the Guari Guari, very nice, and great food. The trip was great and a lot of fun. Definitely going to come back.

Beautiful, clean, friendly, helpful and many more adjective. Steve, Angie and the boys made our stay perfect. We rented both identical (except for color) casitas. Being waterfront was wonderful for the breeze and view. It was only a $3-5 cab ride into town and great to sleep in quiet. Cabs were usually plentiful zipping up and down the road although the Cottrells provided us with cells phones which we added minutes too for cabs and emergencies. Angie went out of her way to help me when I lost my reading glasses in a cab (they are all independent) and we did get them back the next day when we were flying out. I wished Bocas was as clean as the Cottrells property - hopefully one day the locals will be educated and motiviated to pick up all that garbage.

We are happy that you enjoyed your trip! We want our guests to feel that their needs are cared for, but they have the privacy they want. WE are happy that we have succeeded in doing just that!

Bocas Del Toro has had some issues with garbage collection that have recently been resolved. The area is once again being cleaned up, even though it will always be a 3rd world country. However, in your surroundings at Villa Paraiso you will be in Paradise!

Las Casitas provide the perfect, private, luxurious place to unwind after exciting days of exploring the islands of Boca Del Toro. The grounds are immaculate, the pool is absolutely stunning, and the beach!!! Oh... it is perfect. The owners, Steve and Angie and their boys, responded to our every need. We loved having the bikes and kayaks for our use. Boy, did we use the bikes! We enjoyed making a few of our own meals in the outdoor kitchen. Internet service was great, cleanliness of facilities was beyond reproach, and the whole ambiance was distinguished and elegant. We toured other hotels and resorts while were in Bocas. Steve and Angie CLEARLY have the best property.

We chose the area of Bocas Del Toro for our 20th wedding anniversary because we wanted an adventure to a "non-resort" Caribbean location that was safe. We wanted to immerse ourselves in a culture with the privacy and comforts of home at our rental. The possibilities for the islands of Bocas are endless... snorkeling, hiking, beachcombing, surfing, etc. The people are so polite and helpful! Remember, the town of Bocas is a developing area. It does not look like other "ready for prime time" tourists towns. However, Steve and Angie's property is ahead of the rest of the town in providing a clean, luxurious home to land after your exciting days of exploring the beautiful islands.

Las Casitas met and exceeded our expectations! Please feel free to message me if you have questions.
