We had an unbelievable experience at Bocas. And Jon's place was a wonderful to experience it all. We could have spent the entire time lounging on the deck with the cool breeze and hammocks, as all kinds of fish and starfish moved underneath us. The home is nestled a good 15 minute walk out of downtown, which meant easy access to all the restaurants without the noise from late nighters. Jenny was wonderful, she runs here properties just across the alley and was incredibly accessible for help and recommendations. A MUST do is head to Playa Estrella on the far side of the island, a short walk or water taxi past Drago Beach. Just a few heads up; the Saigon neighborhood seems a little rougher around the edges as you make your way to the house, but is well worth it and we never felt unsafe or met anyone unfriendly. We also experienced some power outages during our stay, when we asked around our standard response was "It's Bocas!" Both loved the island and the property, would highly recommend.
Things were just as expected, if not better. Jenny is a beautiful young lady that made me feel comfortable from the second we met.. Never intrusive but always ready to answer any and all questions. I stayed at Jon's place four nights and never had a problem... I had time to read, study, and think.. Just what I needed to be doing! I think a couple of the questions I had were mainly just an excuse to say "Hi" to Jenny... She was one of the few people around that spoke English, but everyone here was so friendly and helpful! I did learn that if you go to the local market and order something as you hold up 3 fingers, you may get 3 pounds instead of just the 3 pieces you actually want!! I would gladly stay at Jon's place again and would also recommend Jon's place...
The apartment is very well located away from the busy part of town but still 10mn walk from centre. The best way to move around is with bicycle.
The large deck with view on the water is the best feature of the all set up.
Jenny and her help are very nice, very efficient. They make you feel very comfortable.
This a great place to stay in Bocas!!
What a great place to stay! I slept in the hammock over the sea every night, which was one of the most peaceful and amazing experiences of my life! Close enough to the town, but far enough from the noise! I would 100% recommend staying here! Make sure you do the Flying Pirate ATV adventure, you WILL NOT regret it!!!
Jon's place is everything we could ever emagine and more!! A great location just 10 minutes (per bike!) from down town Isla Colon, you find a peacefull place with stunning views! Jenny is a great host and can help you or provide you with all you need. Truely the best place to be in Bocas del Toro!!
