“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!
“Escape to Coral View House” Coral View House, with its wraparound verandahs was stunning. Inside it was spacious, comfortable and fully equipped. A lot of thought had gone into the building of the house because it was airy and surprising cool. The setting was private and relaxing yet we didn't feel cut off as Bocas town was just a few minutes boat ride away.
The house,surrounded by the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean, provided us with great snorkeling, swimming, underwater photography, etc right off the deck. When we felt less active we snoozed in the hammock or sipped cocktails on the sun loungers and watched schools of colourful fish, dolphins or a couple of times a leopard ray go by. The sunsets were spectacular too. It was so peaceful. The only noise was from an occasional boat passing by or the Howler monkeys in the distant jungle. Sometimes the locals would paddle by in dug-out canoes to sell freshly caught lobsters.
There were plenty of islands for us to explore in this archipelago. Too many adventures and not enough time! We enjoyed lots of fishing and shelling also. I can't begin to list the places we visited suffice to say we were never disappointed.
There were lots of great places to eat in Bocas. We could buy everything we needed there and it also had a well stocked pharmacy. On a Friday afternoon/Saturday the locals came into town and set up stalls and selling their artistic wares.
It was a wonderful holiday. We are planning to return next year and hope Coral View house will be available again!
