The Saigon Bay Caribbean Mansion is a spacious Caribbean house over the water. The house has two balconies, one on both sides of the house and a big dock over the water. All balconies have hammocks and chairs, to relax and chill.
There are three bedrooms. The master bedroom is the big bedroom upstairs with TV and next to is the smaller bedroom with a bunk bed. Downstairs, on the balcony is the guestroom, with another double bed and a private bathroom. The house sleeps up to 6 persons.
The living room has a comfy couch and there´s a dining table. The spacious kitchen is complete with all amenities to be able to cook your favorite dish.
The house is located in an area called la Cabaña or el Istmito. This is the smallest part of the Island. The house is built over the Saigon Bay and just crossing the street you are at the beach La Cabana. It´s a $0,60 taxi ride to Town, or a 15 minute walk. You can get bikes with your stay at the Saigon Bay Mansion for only $4 a bike at Bocas Bicis.
Best stay yet! Great clean house right on the water. Communication was excellent. We rented the bikes and road all around the island. Really a perfect place to stay! Highly recommended.
This is really a lovely place - nothing like a hostel, nothing like a hotel. Close to the little town of bocas, easily reachable by bike in 5 mins, but not in the noisy center.
Between other local families, over the water (you hear the waves under the floor 24 hours :) )
The hammocks are very comfortable.
We spent there 1 week, Jenny was very helpful, gave us good hints and advices.
Every day there will be someone to bring you fresh towels and asks if you need anything else.
Just for the people who are searching for a really really quiet place, this one would not fit, because in front of the house sometimes the local children are playing baseball or something else.
But remember... kids are not noise! :)
We were happy that we could stay there and can definitely recommend it.
Top accommodatie met, zoals geadverteerd wordt, het echte caribische gevoel.
Heerlijk huis midden tussen locale bevolking en super vriendelijke, maar jammer genoeg niet zo mobiele, onderbuurman Rafael.
Erg fijne tijd gehad hier.
Really nice people on a beautiful island! Bikes were included, that was great!!
Unfortunately we found out upon arrival that the honeymoon suite we had booked, was not available because someone got ill (we were told it was because of the hot weather). So we were asked to stay the 2 nights in another cabin (saigoncito 9&10) that was said to be more expensive. Of course we agreed, since it concerned someone that got ill, but it was really not what we expected.
From the honeymoon suite to a cabin that felt more like a backpacker's dorm with 2 bedrooms (both rooms share the common area, but could be rented separately).
Really too bad, but we had a great time anyway! The place is located 5 minutes bike ride from the main street and close to beautiful beaches.
My husband and his buddy stayed for 3 nights and loved the homey atmosphere, easy to relax, cook and sleep in apartments ( they had to move due to heavy booking ). Jenny is awesome, took care of them well. The free bikes with locks made it easy to get to the surf and to town. When we go back together we will be sure to look her up!
The Captains Beach House is a great place to stay, with ocean view right at your own private beach. While we were there, they built a pier so we could have drinks out on the water. The house was cleaned every day, so we could spend enough time in the hammocks. Thanks Jenny!
Great, beautiful place! We loved the honeymoon suite. The water heater was broken when we were there, so that was a bummer. It is fixed now though. Internet is also slow, but that will be found all over the island, not just here.
Our stay in this cabana was beyond perfect. We absolutely didn't want to leave. The location was great, not far from town at all but just far enough away to have some peace and quiet. The cabana had all the amenities we needed, including a comfy bed and hot shower. The use of bikes is included in the stay as well, a huge plus as that's the best way to get around. Jenny was very kind and helpful and gave us advice on navigating the islands. If we ever find ourselves in Bocas del Toro again we'll definitely be staying here!
I had a great time in Bocas del Toro. Jenny made it a memorable experience. Thanks!
