Welcome to the Saigon Bay Caribbean Mansion!
If you are looking for a great get away in Bocas, look no further. The place was great! Very close to town and an awesome brewery right across the street! The beach across the street is ok, but access to others is easy!
Visited with a group of friends, beautiful home on the water. Jenny is a great host, and we enjoyed our time in Bocas.
The positives: This place is really pretty, right on the water with tons of places to view the bay and the the sunsets. It's well equipped with everything you need to make your stay comfortable, and there is plenty of room to spread out. The balconies and hammocks really make for a relaxing experience. If you feel like doing so you can arrange for a water taxi to pick you up directly from the dock.
The negatives: The sinks, showers and toilets empty directly into the bay. That said, all places on this side of Bocas Town seem to do this, i.e. don't. swim off the dock! There is a fundamental Pentecostal ministry two houses down that seems QUITE active at night and in the morning, lets just say, they realllly FEEL the spirit. Cabs to and from Bocas Town to here can be hard to get at night, so be prepared for a 15-20 minute walk more or less. Otherwise, truly a wonderful experience.
We had an amazing stay at Casa Istmito. The accommodations were very comfortable and kid friendly. Our 16 month daughter had a great time playing on the balcony and was safe upstairs with the children's gate. The guest room outside was a perfect little escape for our nanny traveling with us. The house was conveniently located near the beach and a descent bar/brewery plus close to the action in town and well stocked grocery store. Eating breakfast on the table outside was wonderful while watching the sunrise. I highly recommend this house to all travelers, especially those with children. Our host, Jenny, was also very nice and helpful and maintained good communication.
The house is fantastic. Very well set up and comfortable. It's also great if you are traveling with kids. I would definitely recommend staying at Casa Istmito. Communication with the Jennifer and her team was a bit difficult. I had to alter plans a bit and sent a couple of emails with no reply and the phone number given also wasn't working. However, when we got there they seemed aware of everything and there was no problem so not sure what the issue was. Outside of that, the experience was great and the house was great. I would recommend staying here.
The place was relaxing. Better for families. We were a group of four guys, everyone had a bed. Bars are across the street. Over all experience was awesome.
