Sterling was very helpfull and aways accomidating to our needs. The house and grounds are very beautiful and a great location staying on the bluff. The wildlife was amazing and his helper Fransico was a very gentle, friendly man who is there to help as well. Thank you for everything Sterling.
Sterling fut un hôte accueillant et toujours prêt à nous aider. La cabane est simple mais confortable. Nous nous y sommes beaucoup plus. Une expérience incroyable avec tous les bruits de la nature. Le trajet en vélo depuis bocas prend environ 45 min sur une route parfois difficile alors prevoyez de la nourriture pour votre sejour. Sinon il y a une pizzeria tenue par une italo-venezuelienne excellente à mi chemin de bocas. En résumé, je recommande à tous les aventuriers qui veulent s'isoler un peu et se reconnecter à la nature.
P.s. Seul petit detail que je changerais, eau chaude pour la douche via les panneaux solaires.
My boyfriend and I stayed for 4 nights in January and wished it had been for much longer.
Sterling is an excellent host, that winning combination of laid back yet attentive. We met him in Bocas town and he loaded up the car with all our groceries and gear and drove it out for us whilst we rode the bicycles out. After a quick run down on how things work at the cabin we were left in peace until Sterling came to pick us up at the end of our stay to drop us back at the water taxi.
The ride to the cabin on the bike is beautiful, if not a little rough in some places but mostly this was due to a recent storm that had passed through washing out some of the road.
The cabin itself is gorgeous and stocked with any equipment you could possibly want for cooking etc and Sterling provides fresh drinking water.
We spent most of our time lying on the beach, sitting on the balcony, swaying in the hammock and watching the wild life. It really is the perfect place for doing nothing but enjoying each other and the natural surrounds.
The reservation was canceled 76 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Great spot. Removed from Bocas town right across from Bluff Beach. Little alligators, iguanas, birds right at your doorstep.
Sterling was great, check with him on road conditions and probably best to rent a 4-wheeler or a bike to maximize your stay.
We had a wonderful time in Stirling's Eco-Cabin over Christmas. Stirling took our luggage and food to the cabin, so that we could ride the bikes there. We didn't use the bikes to ride to town during our stay (although it was nice to know we could if we wanted or needed), but explored the island in the other direction. There are some great rides and some nice bars and restaurants to stop at on the way. We also loved the mornings from the balcony of the cabin. Great to watch the birds, hear the monkeys and enjoy nature. The nearby beach is beautiful to walk along and watch the waves!
Best Decision Ever! This cabin was perfect for us for our 11 night stay. The cabin feels really remote, yet you have fairly easy access town to explore other islands. The nature, which is what we came for, is really intense! We saw a lot of wildlife just from the cabin deck, it was really a feast for the eyes and ears! The beach is pristine and we enjoyed sunrises and sunsets every day. The beach bar down the road is the coolest, very chill, wonderful Saturday bbqs. We enjoyed cooking our own meals over a campfire and picking limes from the trees on property for our cervesas. It felt like we were on a small free range farm in the jungle right across from a breathtaking beach. The cabin was really private and very comfortable, no bugs inside and not too hot at night. Sterling is a really kind, generous host and was always available. This vacation was the best- romantic, adventurous, relaxing and full of natural beauty. We came back to Alaska truly feeling truly grateful and lucky to be a part of this beautiful world. If I come back to Bocas, I really hope to be able to stay here again. It was perfect.
Our stay in Bocas Del Toro was perfect! We chose this awesome cabin for our 2 week honeymoon. The cabin is amazing and Sterling went above and beyond to make sure we were set up for a wonderful experience. The cabin is a very nice, secluded getaway. The kitchen is perfect and very clean. You live entirely off the grid here. The beach is close by and beautiful! The town is a little bit of a trek (45 minute bike ride), but Sterling provides bikes to rent. I suggest stocking up on water and food in town to limit your trips back and forth. And there are no street lights, so unless you taxi home, it gets dark and biking can be challenging. But all in all, this was an awesome honeymoon retreat and I highly recommend Sterling and his Eco-Cabin.
The condo was nice. Perfect size for 2 people, although another person could sleep on the couch. Sterling was very welcoming. The location is just a couple miles north of town, so it's only a 60-cent taxi ride into town. The beach is right across the street. It was nice having a kitchen so we could make breakfast in the morning. The A/C worked great, and so did the internet, and the safe in the closet was great. We also really liked having access to a washer/dryer. We spent 4 days in Bocas and loved it! We recommend taking a boat tour to Zapatillas Island, chilling out on Red Frog Beach, and renting ATVs from Flying Pirates.
My friend and I stayed here for three nights and my only regret is that I couldn't have stayed longer! The pictures cannot even begin to do justice to describing the utter beauty and serenity of the cabin and the surrounding area. Sterling was an incredibly gracious, helpful and available host. The cabin was very clean and nicely stocked with water and a fully equipped kitchen upon our arrival. If you're willing to work a little bit more (by living off the beaten path a bit) for the best kind of Bocas experience possible, I'd highly recommend staying here!
Thanks for the nice review Esther. I am so glad that you guys enjoyed your stay. I hope that you guys enjoy the rest of your trip!
A fine guest, understood that we were a hostel and enjoyed the experience.
