3 recent guests complimented Lucas for outstanding hospitality.
The cabin is a great value, perfect for couples and families. The large 2bd/1.5ba cabina is ideally located 3km from town center. The cabina sits in a colorful garden at the edge of the jungle a 5 minute walk to the beach. Great bird life and the monkeys & sloths are regular visitors. 2 bicycles are included with the cabin. We also provide rain water for drinking. We have great contacts for tours and guides and we provide general tips on how best to enjoy your stay. You will love the Birds Nest!

Помешкання
Birds Nest is conveniently located near the 'Y' in the road where it splits towards Paunch/Bluff beaches on the coast road (surf destinations) and towards Bocas del Drago (Starfish Beach) on the interior road. The 'Y' is a small community mixed with locals and ex-pats. During holidays it can get loud with celebrations, fireworks and music.

The cabin is 24x16 with 2 storys. The 2 bedrooms are upstairs along with a toilet and sink. The rooms have twin sized beds and orthopedic mattresses. Each room has a fan, a reading light and a place to hang clothes. For additional guests we have foam mattresses that go on the floor.

The large kitchen is well stocked with a 4 burner stove, double sink and a refrigerator. Great space for cooking. Cozy living/dining room seperated by a bar. (See photos)

The cabin was originally a simple thatch roofed palapa. It is constructed with local hardwoods. The windows are simply screens to keep the bugs out and the air flowing.

The bathroom has a hot shower, tiolet, sink. We have a washing machine here we share with our guests.

Sleeping to the sound of the waves and the buzz of the jungle is the norm. Although the howler monkeys are usually the first to wake around here. You will be pleasantly surprised how cool and fresh it is at night.

The front patio is surrounded by a lawn area with flowers, coconut and other fruit trees, palms and bananas filled with birds and butterflies. A family of howler monkeys are regular visitors and the random sloth and iguana can be spotted. You will never forget seeing STUMPY managing her way through the tree tops. We keep chickens in a coop NO ROOSTER!! We have a dog and a cat as well who you will meet. There is a large green house and veggie garden which I share with our guests. We live simply and try to keep expenses and impact down riding bikes and growing food.

We live across a small creek on the same property and am happy to help our guests as needed. I can help you to arrange tours, kayaks, scuba trips, bird watching and animal viewing, etc. and make suggestions about things to do and see in the islands and elsewhere in Panama. I am a 14 year resident of Bocas.

I hope to attract guests who will appreciate the cabin in its natural setting. Photographers, bird watchers, gardeners, musicians, divers, surfers, etc..Bocas is gifted with such a rich diversity of plant, animal and night life.. Come enjoy it with us.

Gloria is Bocas' only veterinary doctor on the island. Our clinic is in the neighborhood a 5 minute walk from the cabin.

We also have a 400sf dedicated music and recording studio here on the property. It was built with soundproof walls thus it does not disturb the cabins peace and quiet. Musicians of all levels are encouraged to come stay, practice, teach, rehearse and record. Please contact me about studio use scenarios and the equipment we have.

If someone has a special skill set I will consider work trades to mutually benefit each other. Gardeners, musicians, vet techs, etc..

Please feel free to email or call me with any questions you may have. Si hablo espanol.. Gracias..

Here a few more reviews from past guests..

"Our stay at Lucas and Gloria's place was more than amazing!! We decided to make a last minute trip to Bocas from Puerto Viejo. We planned to stay for only 4 nights, but loved it so much, we had to extend to a week, and then really wished we had time for a month or two. Lucas and Gloria were easily able to accommodate our family of 5 and they were such wonderful hosts. The house was very clean, everyone was comfortable and we had plenty of space. Our kids absolutely loved it here! The hammock in the living room was a hit with everybody. We got to see monkeys up close every day, and a lot of cool birds we had never seen. One of our favorite parts were the coconut trees! We absolutely loved the fresh coconut water and coconut meat every day. And to be able to get fresh eggs from the hens was great as well. We were also thankful that we were able to do our laundry when we needed. We loved the location- far enough from town so we weren't in the middle of parties and crowds, but close enough to get there easily when we needed to. Lucas also arranged for a boat tour with a local guy and Gloria called a taxi for us when we needed to leave. They had great advice for us on beaches and cool local spots to go to. We definitely got a lot more out of our stay than we would have in a hotel! So thankful that we found this gem!"

"Our family 2 adults and 2 children ages 10 and 7 had the pleasure to stay in this delightful cabin in Bocas in November 2014. This was the perfect place for our family to stay, it gave us a lot of space to cook and enjoy the jungle. We love adventure filled and active vacations and this was the perfect location for us. We especially loved exploring the island by bikes which was a lovely option provided by Lucas. Our kids loved to spend time with Lucas and Gloria and the chickens and dogs and cat. Lucas chopped coconuts right out of the trees in the yard for the children to enjoy. My husband enjoyed visiting Lucas's music studio and taking a CD home with us. Lucas was great at suggesting wonderful restaurants, arranged a great snorkel tour for us, told us all the places to search for monkeys and sloths, and gave great biking directions to deserted beaches and great swimming areas. We really enjoyed visting the Bastimentos Island and visiting Up The Hill chocolate farm and eating at Alvin's which was a very enjoyable water taxi away. In Bocas we enjoyed wonderful coffee at the new Coffee Shop (close to town) and eating at Refugio. November was a great time to visit Bocas, great weather and almost no tourists, we would highly recommend visting at this time and staying at this great cabin."

"My girlfriend and I just got back from a one week stay in Bocas and we loved this place. Lucas and Gloria were great hosts. Lucas knows all about the island and was a huge help in recommending things to do during out trip. He scheduled a chocolate farm tour for us, had bikes available at the property, recommended a couple of restaurants that we loved, and even set up a tour guide in Panama City for us to kill time during our layover on the trip home. He even made us breakfast our last morning there. Location was perfect. You can hear the ocean and wildlife at night. Getting into town is a 5 minute cab ride (cabs are all over the place) or an easy 20 minute bike ride. Great local feel to the area around the house that we really loved. Plus the only brewery in Bocas is right down the street! The house is in great shape. Clean, everything works, and honestly the pictures on this site don't do it justice. We were very impressed and will definitely stay here again on our next trip to Bocas."

"My boyfriend and I spend 10 fantastic nights here -- we cannot say enough about this place. It's simple, safe, clean, and instantly became home. The location is not far from downtown and a really easy and cheap cab ride. Having this distance from town was just what we needed -- here we had space and quiet (beyond jungle noises which are quite loud but so cool!) and then we could head to town or to the beaches as we liked. Lucas was an amazing help-- so friendly and knowledgeable and generous. It's rare that I've really wanted to return to vacation spot (because there is so much world out there to see) but frankly, I could definitely imagine coming back here some day. I also needed to do several days of work and with the internet access and hammock here, I didn't want to return to my home office! The wildlife, hammock, private space, friendly dog, kitchen, porch area, screened windows --it's just idyllic. Also, the music studio is a fantastic bonus for those of you interested in jamming."

"I just spent ten incredible days here. The house was clean, quiet and well equipped. The beds are really comfortable. Everything is new. Everything worked. Fans in each room keep the rooms nice and cool. The only sounds were the waves on the shore, hundreds of exotic birds and the family of howler monkeys who pass through. Lucas was completely available and knowledgeable about the wildlife, the local culture and places to go. His place borders a world famous botanical garden, almost an extension of it. He arranged for boat tours, kayaking and secured for me a bike. It is easy to get to town and the beach is just steps away. Perfect location. Taxis run all the time. Cheap.i felt completely safe as a woman traveling alone. I would highly recommend this lovely house to all my friends. So affordable and you get so much. A memorable stay in a perfect garden paradise."

Colón Island, Bocas del Toro, Панама

We have a great diversity here in the neighborhood, a nice mix of locals and expats. The Finca Los Monos Botanical Garden is a 10 minute walk. There is an indiginous community a little farther out the road, people still live very close to the earth here. Guests will experience a laid-back country Caribbean vibe out of town away from the tourist hustle. We truly are at the edge of the jungle. Walking distance to the beaches and surf breaks. All the guests have really loved it here so far.

I am a West Coast Gringo who had spent my previous life living and working on the sea. Gloria is Panamanian from The City. We have dedicated allot of time and efforts building our home and planting food crops and fruit trees. Gloria is a veterinarian (The only one on the Island) and we have a small clinic here on the property tending to our 4 legged friends. Music has a renewed place in my life as projects are finished, including the music studio. We have travelled a great deal and continue to venture off as time and money permits. We enjoy having the cabin open to travellers and all the different characters we meet is usually a thrill. Guests feel right at home here, we look forward to greeting you.

As the 2 houses are seperate and private from one another our interaction with guests varies allot on who the guests are..We have become friends with some previous guests and others we only spoke with briefly at check-in. We run a small veterinarian clinic located here in the neighborhood, some guests have volunteered time to help our 4 legged friends. The studio provides a place to play and or record music. We are always available to help guests as needed.
