This is a peaceful, beautiful, amazingly special spot, fully equipped with outdoor gear to enjoy it. We never figured out the oven but cooked several nice dinners with the stove and outdoor grill, enjoying game filled evenings after active days. The Jose family is a gem of a family, always helpful and good natured. Jose took us snorkeling and also to Bastimento, waiting with our stuff while we hiked there. He arranged a great private dinner at the No Name restaurant for NYE for us and was always available and open to anything. I would love to return and definitely recommend!

The Casa Del Mar ( Julia) provided my family (wife and three boys, 23, 20, 14) a vacation with serenity and relaxation, that was private yet not lonely. The whole experience allowed me to rediscover how great and interesting my boys are and how special my wife is ( this place is special). The new luxurious ( 5 star) house has a breathtaking wrap around deck and dock that take in the panoramic dolphin bay, and literally surrounding the house is the calmest, clearest caribbean blue water with tropical fish, sponges, sea urchins, octopus, and starfish. We spent a lot of time in the water in front of the house: swimming, snorkeling, fishing, paddle boarding, and kayaking; all with equipment provided. Behind the house there is a separate facility for equipment storage and clothes washing. The island provides cleared and safe rain forest trails for walking and discovering birds, sloths, cocoa and banana trees, and views atop the island of the surrounding water and other islands. Julia has ensured you are taken care of through her local hospitality team of: Mr. Jose Murillo, the wise and experienced guide for transportation to and from mainland , the other islands, fishing and snorkeling and overall knowledge of the islands, flora, fauna, weather , winds, and ocean. He was equally engaging, pleasant, and interesting with adults and the boys. A true joy to be around; we miss him already. Jose, the the talented epicurean and chef, who shopped for our groceries and prepared deliciously appetizing meals for during each of days at the CDM. He was polite, hospitable, and truly gifted in cooking, preparation , and presentation. Victoriano, the resident grounds keeper, maintenance, and security guard ( not that one was needed). He was readily available in the event you needed anything and humbly invisible if and when you didn't. He resides on the island and expansive property proving a sense of security and yet privacy. Erika Bakk, a nearby resident who provided calming instruction and educational information and details of getting to and from the resort, special needs for the guests, coordination of the local hosts, meals - food - beverage preferences, tours for local fishing, water sports, and dining if not by Jose , the chef. She was wonderful and knowledgeable about all things CDM and Panama. I sincerely thank Julia for allowing me and my family to stay at her wonderful resort and for the experience and special treatment she assured we received before and during our stay at CDM. Days have passed since we left CDM and I am indulging in the nostalgia of the CDM experience; I dreamed about it last night. Thank you Julia. Sincerely and Best, Phillip Brown, Susan, Joseph, Luke, and Zachary

The owner lives outside of the country but the families she has hired are friendly, honest and reliable. It was my first time booking Airbnb and so glad I did. There were 7 in our group from ages 10, 18-25 and 45-47 years. We equally loved the place. Arrival was smooth and I love how the boat drops you off practically at your front door. Yes, the beautiful photos you see are accurate, but what you don't see is how the ease of having all the water activities you desire right there on the property. All the snorkeling gear, fishing poles, three kayaks, two paddle boards rain boots, clogs, washing machine and extra outdoor showers right in the property. You don't have to wait for everyone to decide what to do for the day and what time. Snorkeling is great with beautiful corals. Not a lot of fish varieties but we did see starfish, octopus, manta and sting rays, needle fish, jellyfish, etc. We saw Dolphins about 1/4 a mile away while eating breakfast so a few of us just hopped onto the kayak to get closer to them while others took the paddle board. That was the highlight of the trip. We saw dolphins on a daily basis. If you want to go on excursions, the Joses (father is Jose and so are his three sons) can take you where ever you want for a reasonable price and they don't try to rip you off. They are native to the area so they make the best tour guides. Also had great dolphin experiences with Jose traveling to and from CDM. The care takers would let us know when the sloth was hanging around. He also would cut the coconuts for us when we wanted coconut water. Prior to our trip, we saw that it was thundering and raining everyday. However, it didn't. It only rained one morning so we were really happy. It is the rainy season but if you are family with tropical rainstorms, they don't usually last long. in fact, we were with the dolphins the morning it rained and it was still warm. The sea water is calm and very warm. You don't even have to get acclimated to the water temperature. It's perfect!! We did our own cooking, all utensils and cookware was provided also basic oil and spices. Make sure you swim or kayak at night, the bioluminescent plankton are amazing! It is solar powered and has wifi. We only lost power once but Victoriano turned on the backup generator. I really can't say enough positive things about this place. You won't be disappointed. I'm glad I chose this over staying in Bocas town. Town is not that clean and I would not swim in that water. Here in CDM, it's quiet, private and so beautiful! You can hear all the lovely nature, even the holler monkeys!!

Casa del Mar is magical -- gorgeous views, well-built, isolated and eco-friendly. The house is truly built over the water on a beautiful reef with tropical fish and stingrays swimming by. It even has a glass viewing area from the living room. Jose and his extended family are all fantastic, gracious hosts -- they took us fishing, snorkeling, surfing and to a local restaurant on the water as well. We loved our stay here.

This was an amazing place to stay. Erika and Jose were gracious, informative hosts who took all the planning and work out of our hands. It truly was an amazing vacation. The house is great, the surrounding grounds beautiful, and you can literally snorkel off the front porch on a reef with plenty of fish and marine life. We would definitely return if traveling in that part of the world again.
