“Great place to stay”
Reviewed 27 February 2017 for a stay in January 2017

If you are looking for a unique place to stay, this is it.The house is entirely over the water and you can swim and snorkel off the deck. The owners Poli and Lyo are extremely helpful. They arranged trips for us and cab arrangements at the end. We would love to return and stay longer. Thanks Poli and Lyo.

“Great spot”
Reviewed 9 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

I highly suggest this spot. Poli and Lyo are great. They go out of their way to make you comfortable. The house is amazing. Quiet, beautiful view! About a 15 min water taxi to town. I will certainly stay there again.

“Outstanding Vacation”
Reviewed 25 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I was looking for a relaxing vacation that I could spend with my partner, far away from telephones, emails, and the slings and arrows of day to day life. This house was recommended to me by a fellow coworker who had stayed in the yellow house for her honeymoon about a year or so ago.
I was a little skeptical at first (Panama??) but I love the Caribbean and looked forward to the opportunity to explore more of that area.
The blue house was more than I expected and we found we had an exceptional time for our stay. We were off the grid, living with solar energy, rainwater and propane hot water, but in a well appointed house that was set up beautifully. The beds, furniture and hammocks were extremely comfortable and welcoming. The windows were set up in such a way that they can be left open 24/7 and allow for the breezes to blow through the house, especially at night. Very very comfortable.
The owners, Poli and Lyo, were incredibly responsive and answered our questions within minutes by text or email. We were well taken care of by the staff living nearby (Ariel then Ricardo) and were provided with restaurant information, excursion information and other info by Poli and Lyo, and they were spot on with their recommendations.
And the water was crystal clear, with constant and varied ocean life. We saw sergeant majors, snapper, trumpet fish,doctor fish, eagle rays, fish nurseries, sea urchins and tons and tons of beautiful and fat red and gold star fish, all within feet of the blue house.
The water was warm but refreshing and we spent a lot of time swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. At night we were able to watch the stars without any lights on and in near total darkness. Beautiful!
In the morning we woke up with the sun and listened to the birds and monkeys in the forest behind the house. Very peaceful.
I cannot say enough about Poli and Lyo. They love to show off their houses and for good reason; they've done an excellent job and were always available when needed. I am happy to call them my friends after the vacation.
MJ and I look forward to a return at some point in the future.

Thank you very much for your review and for staying with us.
It was a pleasure to receive you both here and see how happy you were enjoying the house and the area.
Guests like you give us the joy of continuing to do what we do and to have the house as confortable, clean and good for our guests. When we arrived in this area we felt in love for its nature, peace and how privileged the area is comparing to all of the islands and other places of Bocas. Hope to see you in our lives onde day.

“Amazing!”

Yes there is no AC and its hot at night, and yes, maybe they don't have EVERYTHING in the kitchen, but this was an AMAZING experience! (There is a great breeze and we got inventive cooking which was all part of it)

You are staying on the ocean!! It is so amazing to look out the window and see nothing but gorgeous water. Snorkel right off the porch. Heck you don't have to get in the water and perhaps some dolphins. We sat for hours on the back dock watching more sea life than I've ever seen before. We saw a huge beautiful ray from there. And some kind of squid. I'm really missing it now as I type.

The owners were great. Boat guy was great!! (Been too long and the names have faded :( Paid for an extra trip on the boat and he took us to starfish beach. Had a great afternoon and our best meal of the trip from a shack on the beach.

It really felt like our own piece of paradise.

Hello, thank you for staying with us and for your review.
Its right, there is no AC neither electrical coffee maker, toaster. We do have a blender, just need to ask. The good solar system keep the refrigerator on 24 hours, also the ceiling fans, lights, wifi work perfectly, off course we always remind our guests to be conscious and turn off the fans and any other device as phone, PC after being used.
The breeze and being over the water keep the house fresh and very different from the heat in town.
Its much easier and fair price take a extra boat, for a fee, with us departing directly from the house to the Star Fish instead of going with a 20/30 people boat from town, its a pleasure to us be able to offer other services like this boat to the beach and extra transfer to town, just please ask in advance so we can plan it :)
Hope to see you again here.
Best wishes,
Poli & Lyo

My husband and I stayed here 2 years ago and returned in March with 2 other couples. The location is serene with next to perfect snorkeling and swimming. The coral and fish life that you view while snorkeling is extremely diverse. The description of the houses (we rented both) and amenities was accurate.
But what makes these houses stand out are the owners, Poli and Lyo! They are walking encyclopedias for local information; are excellent cooks for hire; and work to provide their guests with the best vacation ever. I plan to return.
