Bill and Craig greeted us with champagne and appetizers and that set the fantastic tone of our trip. They helped us with plans in Panama City, traveling to their beautiful beach front property, and making reservations for and shuttling us to our chosen adventures like zip lining and white water rafting. The best part of the trip was relaxing and recharging on the pool deck or beach. My bedroom opened up to the screened in porch, which opened up to the pool. I could have stayed here for the entire trip and been ecstatic. The hosts were extremely attentive to our needs and the food was creative and tasty. This trip was the perfect blend of relaxtion and adventure and look forward to a return visit!
My stay at BC’s Beach House was so amazing! It was gorgeous to see the sunrise and sunset over the stretch of private beach right in the back of the house and I spent most of my time in the beach-front pool.The owners were the most pleasant part of my stay- they were so helpful and incredibly kind. They even surprised me with horses to ride on the open beach! This place is particularly unique because you can encounter so many beautiful wildlife creatures, including dolphins, humpback whales, and cute monkeys in the trees. I really enjoyed the all inclusive food and drinks and it was the perfect place to spend a vacation away from everything and I can’t wait to go back... I will definitely be telling everyone about this special place.. It’s seriously like a dream!
When we heard about BC’s from a friend, we were very intrigued. We’ve vacationed at resorts in the Dominican, Mexico, Jamaica, and Costa Rica and prefer very small and quiet resorts so a private home sounded great. We had even thought about renting condos, but were concerned about the hassle of cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping. This sounded like a perfect match. We spent a night in Panama City before flying to David. BC’s recommend a very good tour company that provided airport transfer and a PC city tour. After the quick flight to David, BC’s picked us up for the quick 30 minute drive to the house. We were happy to find that the house was even more charming, and the views more extraordinary than any of the pictures. We settled in quickly, thanks to BC’s tremendous hospitality. Between the pool, patio, and screened in porches all with ocean views, it was easy to relax. The owners did a good job of balancing being invisible and making sure we had everything we needed. We had sent a few requests ahead of time for specific drinks and desserts, and they were very accommodating. We had been concerned about whether we would like the food, but found that we were happy with that aspect also. A nice light breakfast, lunch by the pool, and quiet dinner on the porch. The variety and quality was very good. BC arranged for a rafting excursion and massages for us. We had a great time on the river, and had the most amazing massages out by the pool with the wind blowing and the waves crashing. Overall it was a great vacation. Quiet and relaxing, which was just what we needed! Thanks BC! Can’t wait to come and visit again!
This gorgeously appointed house is nestled in a private neighborhood on a beautiful, deserted black sand beach. The hosts were amenable and friendly, going out of their way to accomodate our wishes. The food was yummy and the refreshments were plentiful. The hosts led us to some wonderful adventures: zip-lining, white-water rafting, and horseback riding on the beach. This was the vacation of a lifetime! I can’t wait to return to this little piece of paradise...
I would definitely recommend this spot for couples and small groups of travelers or families. The pool is amazing for relaxing or socializing, and it looks out over the ocean. This really helps counter the warmer temperatures. Evenings in March were very comfortable outside. The owners were helpful in finding local day trips and adventures and even provided transportation and assistance dealing with Spanish speakers. I went whitewater rafting, toured a coffee plantation, went to a street festival in the city of David, and toured some of the natural areas in Chiriqui province. All of these were within an hour drive, I would say. The owners were also fun and laid back, very go-with-the-flow but attentive to needs. The house has laundry facilities, a full kitchen, and even an outdoor shower. But did I mention the wonderful pool with a shaded bar area? I would say the experience exceeded my expectations because of the space and cleanliness of the house and the congenial hosts.
A MUST book, must see! BC’s Beach House is perfect for a couples’ trip, small family trip, honeymoon or anniversary trip. Great for those who want to see Panama City or Costa Rica and then move to a more relaxing stay. We stayed 4 nights and spent the perfect amount of time sleeping/lounging and going on adventures in Boquete after visiting Panama City! We would have stayed here longer if we had the time - it is well worth it. The drive from the airport in David (new and growing!) is fun for any age so long as you follow BC’s provided driving directions. You will see the real character of the town of David to the properties of Las Olas. Pictures don’t do the property justice! The main living area is spacious with tall ceilings and the perfect decor for a serene and relaxing stay straight out of decorator’s magazine. Screened in porch area is a dream for reading and night over a glass of wine. The pool is a cool break from the sun, and the cooler is stocked with cold brews! The beach is a stones throw from the pool so you can alternate where you will sunbathe as the clouds move! I say it is perfect for couples because there are so many spots to read and relax near eachother, or move to your own private corner of the space, inside or out! :) Every inch is immaculately clean. The hosts are welcoming and friendly and very knowledgeable about tourism in Panama, where to go in David and Boquete etc. They are very helpful in arranging tours and adventures! The food was delectable, using vegetables from local farmers markets. Highly recommend and will defintiely return. Geuninely caring and welcoming owners and it shows through every detail of the business.
BC’s Beach House was the best place we’ve ever stayed! Everything we ever wanted and needed was at your finger tips. We never felt so spoiled. Food, drink, sunshine, sunrises,sunsets, private pool, beach, privacy, relaxation and the most gracious hosts ever! Oh and Panama was good too! Paradise is the best way to describe our latest Adventure. Can’t wait to go back!
Bc’s takes care of all the details. The home is elegant and comfortable.Bc’s adds all the little touches that really make your stay special.The food was so delicious! The salt water pool was refreshing and the beach was beautiful. We took our kids and we had a great time. We rode horses on the beach, collected shells and rocks and hermit crabs. We went zip lining in the rainforest - rafting and visited the amazing monkey sanctuary where we learned and hiked and held howler monkeys. We highly recommend this trip to anyone family or adults only- something for everyone.
Bill and Craig are the most excellent hosts.They think of everything. The food is great as is the company . I would recommend it for anything, romantic getaway,or a family vacation.
Now that we are back home, we would like to thank you very much again for the wonderful hospitality you both have shown us! All the details, from the arrangements to accommodate our little one (the baby shampoo, baby food, crib, high chair, etc.) to your wonderful tomato soup!! Your place is wonderful and we will highly recommend it.
My girlfriend and I were fortunate enough to be the first guest at BC’s Beach House. It was truly a remarkable week. They went out of their way to tend to all of our needs. The house is so charming and the hosts Bill and Craig were delightful. We spent most of our time just relaxing at the pool and indulging with delicious food and drinks. It was as they promised a truly all inclusive resort style experience in a private beach house. We did two excursions through BC’s and it was nice having them drive us to Boquete and Boca Chica. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a vacation place in Central america. Call or email these guys they will help you plan everything.
