average rating of 4.86 based on 50 reviews

The house was lovely. By far, the best home rental experience we have had.

  • 5 of 5

The setting is beautiful. The house has everything you could need (including pots and pans, good knives and cutting boards, dishes, snorkles and masks, even some sunscreen and bug repellent for emergencies. But bring your own as well.)

The house itself is lovely. Clean and well designed and decorated. The kitchen was a pleasant surprise. There were spices, oil, various basic necesities in case you forget something.

Poli was very responsive. She provided all of the information necessary to have an enjoyable trip. There is a house manager who is available to take you to town during a set schedule.

Overall, a fantastic trip in a fantastic location.

Snorkel off the Front Porch! Sweet Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is a delightful off-the-grid experience. Hence, you'll need to be thoughtful with water and power, but you'll have the convenience of a two-bed, two-bath house with wi-fi, and we loved it. What a hoot! This is a solid, clean, well-maintained but simple house with all the essentials you need. The owners were wonderful. Poli went above and beyond, offering great tips, connections, and even help when we had phone issues. We did some snorkel trips while there, but I can honestly say the snorkeling near and UNDER the house (the blue one) is so GOOD and you wouldn't have to leave to have a good go of it. Bocas Town didn't thrill us, but we went in a couple of times for groceries and dinner; we felt safe but we LOVED the serenity of the house and it's beautiful setting. If you luck out being there during a dark moon, gazing at stars from the tranquil deck will knock your socks off. One of our added snorkel trips included a stop at Dolphin Bay, which we were horrified with (11 boats filled with tourists surrounding one beleaguered dolphin in a small bay), but was otherwise good. It felt good to have the option of a daily boat ride to town each day if you need something.

An amazing paradise in the coral Caribbean ocean

  • 5 of 5

My husband and 2x children, ages 15 & 8 had a wonderful time in the blue house of Paraiso Escondidos. The house was a real gem in a wonderful serene location. If you are looking for serenity, you've come to the right place.

The owners Poli & Lyo were so helpful, they went out of their way to accommodate us, even Poli helped us on arriving @ dock to get some groceries and bottled water in the local grocery nearbye dock.

Beto, the caretaker, that lives in house behind was very helpful too, it was a nice feeling of security to have someone always around if you needed something. He even picked us up some bottled water from town when we didn't want to have to bother leaving the house.

It's such a magical place, just to chill out and enjoy swimming, snorkeling or kayaking around the coral and mangrove surrounding you. The 2x bedroom house was ideal for our family. 2x single beds for children, and 1x queen bed for my husband and I. Very comfortable, had a great sleep. It was also nice to have 2 bathrooms with 2x showers. The kitchen was very functional, had everything you needed. Also handy to have the barbeque outside in back to cook for dinner. Lots of extras in house. Nice to have free wi-fi, kids enjoyed watching movies, great selection of movies to watch in DVD folder.

I was a little concerned about getting eaten by bugs, mosquitos, the "no see-umm's", but I have to say, I didn't get one bug bite!

It was the best snorkeling we did in Bocas, right off the deck, and one of the night's, when we were swimming around the house, we even got to experience the bio-illuminescense phenomenon that can be seen sometimes in the Caribbean.

Overall, it was a great 1st time experience in Bocas del Torres, but only because of staying at Paraiso Escondidos. Thank you again Poli & Lyo for a beautiful experience.

Beautiful relaxing experience

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful view and villa, taxi is very expensive about 25$ one way so be ready to pay. The villa does offer free taxi service 11h to get to bocas town and 2pm to return to villa. The coral and wild life is amazing at the villa would definitely recommend renting the kayaks ( 25$ for two/ day) . Owners our villa nice. Definitely would recommend renting this villa it's a great experience, very relaxing !!!

Owner's Response: Hello! Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Water taxis from town charge per person, with minimum of passengers per boat. They have diferent fees during day light time, dinner time or very late at night and depending of size of their boat/motor. Fees common used during the day: U$5 per person (minimum 3 passengers paying) and dinner time U$8/U$10 per person (minimum 4 passengers paying). Please have in mind this is a third service we are not responsible and we recommend you pre set time and price in order to avoid miss understanding or wrong charging. We do recommend 2 persons who offer this service with lower fee than town. Please ask us. Best wishes, Poli & Lyo

Hidden Treasure

  • 5 of 5

We booked with Poli last minute and it was the best decision. Not only is this home incredibly clean, well maintained and in good working order, but it has magnificent views. It runs off of solar and rain water, so Eco friendly. It has a caretaker, Beto, that lives in the mangroves behind the houses. He was phenomenal, he even caught Bonita fish and cooked them for us. The house we stayed in (blue house) has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, kitchen with all the needs covered including simple things that you don't think of like salt & pepper, cooking oil, paper towel, dish soap etc. (we have stayed plenty of places that don't have this). There is a nice sized family room with DVD player and a folder full of movies. It even has a glass floor to fish watch. But the best part is the outdoor patio with dining table, hammock, lounge chairs, Adirondack chairs and sofa. It is a great space. Large deck with ladder to get in and out of water, deep enough to jump in too. The docks around the house are well maintained (no splinters or stray nails) and great for sea life watching. While we were there we saw more fish under the dock than on some snorkel trips, you can feed them little bits of food and they are happy to come very close. We saw Dolphins, sting rays, and a spotted Eagle Ray from the house. Trips into town were easy and Beto took care of all the luggage and groceries on and off the boat. This is such an inedible place, I can't say enough about it. Thanks for everything Poli and Beto.

Owner's Response: Hello! Thank you very much for staying here and for your review, we are very glad you enjoyed everything. Sea life variety is amazing and once you explore the coral reef you will easily find this. Hope to see you in the future. Best wishes, Poli, Lyo and Beto.

Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent three weeks at the yellow house and loved every minute. Poli and Lyo were wonderful hosts. The house was clean and the setting was amazing. The house is off the grid but still has the amenities you absolutely need. Out of the three weeks, we only had about 4-5 days of all day rain. Be sure to go to Paunch Beach and have lunch at Paki Point. Watch surfers and enjoy a cold beer! Beto was our onsite caretaker and boat captain and did a marvelous job.

Thank you for your review and for finding us :) You were incredible guests and its very pleasant to see how much you enjoyed the house, that is and always will be our goal, having the house better and better for our guests enjoy it. Yes, you are right, Paunch beach and the beach bar are excelents and has easy access. Just a small note/tip: being a beach with waves and currents, pay close attention when entering the water. Hope to see you again. Best wishes, Poli & Lyo
