About the property

Sleeps 8 but can be blocked off for 2 at a discounted rate!

The red frog villas are spacious, modern, and located above the best beaches in Bocas. This villa is the Tortuga model, with an open floor plan, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths. The master bedroom has a queen bed and private bath, while the other 2 bedrooms have queen beds and share a large bathroom. Easily sleeps 6, but you could sleep 8 with two guests sleeping on a sectional sofa.

As you enter the villa you are greeted by breathtaking views of the Caribbean through the great room glass walls. This villa is comfortably furnished. The kitchen is fully equipped and handsomely appointed with cherry wood cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and granite countertops. There is also a property manager on the island to take care of you and your family/friends during your vacation. Cool travertine tile flooring is throughout including the wrap around, under roof 1000 sq ft patio. A private pool in the shape of a turtle! Plenty of outside furniture for eating and relaxing.

Our property manager can stock your villa with groceries for a small fee before your arrival, or you can shop in Bocas before you hop on the 10-minute boat ride to Red Frog. There are also a few restaurants on the island and island bar with nightlife. You can hire a private chef as well.

The villa is an easy five-minute golf cart ride (if you decide to rent a golf cart) or ten-minute walk to the exclusive turtle beach or to the popular Point beach bar. La Rosa Beach Club will be opening soon.

The incredible Bastimentos Sky Zipline Canopy tour is located within the resort and Kayukos Island Lounge and Restaurant features a mellow nightlife vibe and inexpensive meals. The lounge area is a great place to originate boat tours to Zapatilla Keys, Crawl Key, Dolphin Bay and other far-flung adventure spots. The Red Frog Express Shuttle provides quick water transport to Bocas Town (10 minutes) four times daily. Transport within the resort is available from Resort Management with sufficient notice for a fee. Since the villa is located at the Red Frog Beach Resort, water sports activities (kayaking, surfing, paddle boarding, snorkeling) or nature based activities (hiking, beach combing) are readily available on location.

• 3 bedrooms, 2 baths

• Private plunge Turtle Shaped Pool and outdoor shower

Why Susan chose Bastimento

Having traveled to Costa Rica, Equador, The Gallapagos Islands, and then to Bastimentos, we knew we wanted to have a special place where our family could go and see unique species of animals and birds. When we visited Red Frog Beach we knew this was the place, a secluded island with various activities and beautiful beaches.

What makes this villa unique

A unique item of this villa is its one of the few villa's that has 3 triple pane sliding doors, giving spectacular views of the Caribbean whether you are in the kitchen, dining room, great room or the master bedroom. This villa has an open floor plan. The villa boasts an expansive wrap around patio where you can relax and look out at the Caribbean without being bothered by the weather. Also, it is the only villa on the island with a pool the shape of a sea turtle. Although we are not managed by Red Frog management company we are part of the Red Frog community and have our property manager available for any assistance you may need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hi Jerry/Susan.



We are here in the villa, the place is really amazing.

You have a beautiful home. The whole family is delighted.

My parents are returning on the 14th to Argentina.

After that with my wife and childrens we will continue on vacation until February 20.

This place is huge for us. but we are really in love with the villa.

For that reason I wanted to see if it is available until 20 February and then if you could give us a special price considering that we are only a couple.

Thank you.

Best regards,

Diego

Awesome Villa

  • 5 of 5

Spent 5 nights at this Villa, it is a fantastic place. Extremely comfortable, has a massive wrap around deck that over looks the ocean. Lots of patio furniture that you can sink into. It has 3 very large bedrooms and a very spacious living/dining room area. Red frog is a lovely island that offers beautiful beaches and food options. the Villa is located on the hill so the golf kart will be needed. The only downside is the Villa is not rented through the Red Frog resort so the resort will not help you at all. But the owner Jerry is very accommodating and responsive for anything you need. would definitely recommend this place and if I ever went back to red frog id stay here again!

Wonderful Getaway Villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a business trip in Panama City, Panama and decided to tag on a few extra days at Red Frog Resort. Since we waited last minute to try and book at Red Frog Resort they were unavailable to accommodate us for the nights we needed so that was when I decided to check VRBO. When I emailed Susan and Jerry regarding their homes availability for our dates they were very prompt in responding to me. We booked immediately. I had several questions regarding the Villa & how to get there. Susan was so sweet to call us and let us ask her all the questions we had on our list and even suggested some wonderful food spots. The property manager, Jay, who lives at Red Frog resort promptly met us when our water taxi arrived at the marina. He took us on a quick tour of the resort before dropping us off at the house. The Villa was located at the higher level of the resort with wonderful views of the ocean. We left the doors open during the day and evening hours and enjoyed the wonderful breeze. We did use the AC at night and slept soundly. Our first half of each day was enjoyed with a breakfast in and relaxing by the pool. In the afternoons we explored the resort and hung out at the resort pool or on the beach. One day we even saw a young sloth crossing the road. That is something you don't see everyday! What a treat! The Villa was just what we needed for our little quick getaway. We had a fabulous visit. My only complaint is we did not get a long enough stay. Thank you Susan and Jerry for making our visit to Red Frog Resort so effortless and wonderful!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

Susan and Jerry, thank you so much for sharing your lovely haven with us. Our stay at your villa made our Panama experience all the more awesome! The villa was clean and well maintained, the balcony was relaxing and the views were astonishing. We enjoyed the pool at night and discovered several beaches on the island. Our whole party, including two teenagers, had a marvelous and fun time swimming, surfing, searching for sloths and touring Bocas del Toro. Thank you for immediately responding to all of our questions, even while we were there. I highly recommend this property to my friends and/or family members who visit Panama, and will be returning!

Best Vacation !!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking views the moment you walk into this well-appointed luxury "cottage". We enjoyed breakfast every morning on the expansive patio with views of the ocean! The home is immaculate with a HUGE common area that leads directly to the outside patio with views that look like a postcard! This lovely island resort area is traveled thru exclusively by golf cart which only adds to its luxury-charm. Magnificent, bucket-list, luxurious, are some of the words I would use. The Owners responded quickly to any questions we had, and the staff at the resort were friendly and always available. The beach is gorgeous and never crowded! We took the jungle ATV ride (offsite but close!) in Bocas del Torro and it was a blast! I HIGHLY recommend a visit here!

Awesome getaway

  • 5 of 5

Traveling thru North America, Europe and Asia we've seen and stayed at many rental properties. This villa at Bastimento, Panama is exceptional. It reminded me of a bungalow with its lush tropics and a beautiful open breezy floor plan. The large open deck overlooking the royal blue Caribbean Sea was picturesque. My husband and I went with some of our beloved friends and enjoyed many beautiful mornings with coffee on the deck. The house itself with its exquisite decor was extremely clean and well stocked. Non-smokers paradise🙏򣰼􏏼. The beach was within walking distance and well kept by very attentive Staff. We enjoyed swimming, snorkeling, zip lining and cooling off on the property's pool at the end of the day. Loved the cozy restaurants on the island but my favorites were the ones owned and operated by the locals. Food was to die for. Star gazing at night was spectacular and often left us speechless. My recommendation: come with a sense of adventure and let yourself relax/ enjoy. Bastimento and Red Frog Beach (one of our top beaches ever experienced) will be revisited by us for sure. Traveling for me around the globe is a simply pleasure of life.....I'm glad I did this Villa in Bocas del Toro. We will be back.
