“Loved this placed!” My husband and I were recently in the Orange House for a week...what a tremendous time we had! The house has everything you need, is close to the beach and is close enough to town, but far enough away. We enjoyed Claudia's recommendations for restaurants and activities. Claudia is a great host. Thanks for a great time!
“Tranquilo en Paraiso” The week flew by, and all I can say is what an easy and comfortable week it was. The house is well kept, has dishes, stove, oven, hot water for cleaning and bathing, all from rainwater, and the house has electricity from solar panels. Wifi worked very well considering how remote the location is. Leaving the windows open all day and night for fresh air and the sound of the water was great. Waking up to a beautiful view of the sea was such a treat. We were lucky to have such great neighbors at the connecting house. It became like a family vacation. Lyo and Poli stayed nearby and were always helpful with suggestions of trips nearby. They are as involved as you want them to be. In fact, we spent several nice days exploring the nearby Starfish Beach and Boca del Drago with them and our neighbors. On several nights we had pot lock dinners and Lyo made a traditional Brazilian seafood dish. On our final night he suggested where to buy fresh lobster tails in town and I brought them home after biking to Playa Bluff, and he and Poli helped cook them for dinner. It was absolutely great. Lyo even took me to the airport early in the morning to confirm my flight home because he was concerned.
The house is in a beautiful location set aside from the noise of Bocas Town, and the sunsets are just amazing. After sitting out on the deck or after a nice day trip in the sun, coming home jump in the clear shallow waters surrounding the house was great. There are so many different kinds of fish swimming under the house to explore by snorkel. At night after dinner Lyo showed us phosphorescent fish in the back of the house and then looked up to see the clear sky with so many stars.
We feel like we made great friends and shared great memories here. We would definitely return. Thanks Lyo and Poli.
