Beautiful, Tranquil and Rustic
My husband and I stayed in the blue house with another couple and in the yellow house, another couple. Having both houses was very nice and provided us the opportunity to go between both.
If you want to stay on Isla Colon, you couldn't pick a better spot. It's lovely and peaceful, especially compared to the bustle of Bocas Town. As with most accommodations around Bocas you need to take water taxis to get into town. Poli made sure that we had the water taxi available and prearranged for our trips to town. Where it can get challenging is finding a taxi from their dock to get around town. They are usually full and if you are a party of more than two people they seldom will stop for you. Take Poli's advice and arrange for a taxi cab in advance...or be prepared to walk.
The house stays plenty cool thanks to the fans and cross breezes, so you dont really need AC. You will need bug spray. I didn't really get many bites, but our friends did. Deet is a must. Each house only has two snorkel masks provided, so if you have more than two people, you will want to arrange for more. Especially as the snorkeling off the deck is awesome!! We saw more fish than we ever did snorkeling in Hawaii. Starfish, trumpet fish and stingrays were all visible just a few feet from our deck. We took a catamaran tour and snorkeled at Dolphin Bay, which had amazing young coral. Highly recommend this as well.
I did mention rustic in the title and it is. Making coffee the first morning was challenging. Make sure you stock up on groceries in town....water, ice, coffee and all food items, including paper towels. It is a bit of a journey to get into a grocery store so it's better to buy more than you think that you will need for the day. Poli will help with this as well, she provided us with grocery bags and helped us find items quickly. She was great and as was Juan, the caretaker and water taxi driver.
Bottom line, the setting of our house - over the water - with amazing sunsets and snorkeling was what you would imagine a Caribbean island xperience to be.
Nice stay just Pre Plan
First, both houses are not the same. The blue house is what they advertise most with the net that is built into the porch to look into water and the living room with clear window to look in the ocean. We got the yellow house thinking we would get the same set up. Owners should probably state that in there or if you are the renter pre plan to ask if the blue house is available. When arriving to Almirante to catch your first water taxi to Bocas be prepared to pay $8-$12 per person. If your a tourist be prepared to pay the max. Poli husband and Juan greeted us at the dock where we take a second boat to houses provided by the owners. During your stay plan to bring groceries or you will have a chance the next day to go into town for only a few hours. We didn't expect to have issues getting a cab to dock and bus we prepaid that morning to return us to dock broke down. We missed our 2pm pick up time from owners (which is complimentary) and we had to wait almost 2 hrs for a taxi to take us to our house. 11am-2pm complimentary ride is not enough time to site see, beach, grab lunch and buy groceries. Just pre plan. The house is beautiful and peaceful and Poli husband did a wonderful job explaining everything in home. You will definitely get to see plenty of fish at the dock for snorkeling. The view in master bedroom is amazing in morning and sunsets are breathtaking. The house has plenty cooking utensils and very spacious. The price nightly looks nice until all the additional fees are added on it and if you plan to add more people after payment expect to pay extra per person in cash. Not really quite sure why I had to pay extra when I already paid on my bill for additional guests when I reserved it. Overall it was nice and I must admit that Poli iwas very good at responding to you with any questions and concerns especially before your arrival. They will definitely assist in any way they can. Lovely couple.
Thank you for choosing us and we are glad you had a great time at the house.
We advertise both houses with pictures with tags so guests can see the differences between them and choose the one they prefer, you just need to ask in advance not once you arrive if you prefer one, or the one available by the time you request will be set for you.
Both have porch to look into water and the living room with clear window to look in the ocean, you saw that.
I am deeply sorry you had a bad experience in Almirante and with taxis in Bocas. We are always available to help you with doubts about third services and I sent a detailed info about transportation and tours. Just a note, water taxi from Almirante is between US$4 to US$5 per person per way, depending on the company in a shared boat not U$8/U$10 per person as you mentioned, those prices are official.
If you hire a private boat that will be the price but not with regular most used shared boats.
We include a sheduled transfer per day, time is enough for walking in Bocas town or go to the groceries and have lunch but we are not a transportation/taxi company so guests who like to be in town for many hours enjoying bars/restaurants/beaches need to hire their own taxi/transportation to return to the house as in any hotel/rentals around the world. In Bocas there are many docks with water taxi service but private docks dont offer that, so do not expect a taxi in any dock, you will wait for hours and will not get any.
Last, your reservation was for 4 people not 5 people that arrived so yes, we charge extra guests as inform on vrbo. If you pre plan to add more guests and want to be able to pay as the same way you pay on vrbo please advice before so we can change the reservation.

What a amazing place, we loved loved loved it! Great snorkeling, beautiful views and sunsets. House was perfect and very well maintained. Aquatic life was amazing, we saw a nurse shark; spotted ray; sting ray; bioluminescent fish and glowing jelly fish; not to mention all the other colorful fish; I sure do miss feeding them every morning and night. Poli, Lyo and Juan were the best! they went out of their way to help us with anything we needed. Our one mistake was to stay in town the second week, we should of did the two weeks at the house, next time!
Thank You Poli, Lyo and Juan!
looking forward to seeing you again!

Peaceful and relaxing!
Great place to lounge and relax. It's very peaceful and quiet. If you're looking for action it's not the place to go. The coral reef is right there and only one meter deep. You get to see tons of fish and marine life and the coral is actually in very good shape. Lots of color and variety. Paddle boarding and kayaking around the house and in the bay in the back is great. If you don't want to be completely disconnected, they have a good wifi and Netflix. Poly and Lyo are great hosts! We had a wonderful time!
Thank you very much for your stay and we are very happy and proud you enjoyed it very much.
Poli, Lyo and Juan
What a beautiful place to stay. All the beauty in the water! The house is among the coral. Poli, Lyo and Juan understand exactly what service means. Amazing holiday!
