This property is lovely. The big veranda on the front of the house looks out over the ocean and is framed by palm trees that sway in the breeze. The waves, the sun, and the jungle are all right there. It’s perfect.

The property is amazing. A little walk from Bastimentos to the house on a jungle trail. The water in front of the place is great for snorkeling and while it's not the Ritz it has a million dollar view from the porch. Sunsets on the porch are not to be missed. The Fire Fly next door has great food and easy to get a boat taxi anywhere you need to go. 5 stars from me on Casa Roca.

The property is beautiful and the owner accurately describes his home and amenities. The pictures, while accurate, can't capture the beauty of this oceanfront property. Also, pay close attention to owner's suggestions for arriving on the island/Bastimento. I would definitely stay at this property again. The location is truly beautiful and the locals are friendly.

The house is situated quite apart and could at that time only be accessed by a small footpath from the dock of Bastimentos town as the dock pertaining to the house was broken. The footpath was partly muddy and full of plastic waste that has probably washed up from the sea. It is particularly difficult to reach the house when it is raining and storming. We liked the surrounding terrace of the house and the large doors that open to the terrace. Unfortunately it is not possible to watch the sunset from the terrace as this part of the horizon is always covered by the surrounding trees. The house was in relatively bad shape. Some of the windows could not be opened because they were fixed with screws in the window frames and we were unable to remove them as they were completely rusted. This was particularly annoying regarding the bathroom as dust and unpleasant smells could not escape through a window, but always penetrated into the adjacent bedroom. Storage space for clothes and laundry is minimal. One of the bedrooms has neither a closet nor a commode. Kitchen equipment was also quite poor, tea towels were not available. However, there was also a highlight in the kitchen: a blender that we used to prepare cocktails. Shower / toilet were fine and clean. The water supply failed twice - once the cause was an empty water tank, the other time the pump had failed. Anyhow, Ricardo and Antonio fixed both problems within 2 hours. We also used the outside shower, especially to clean our dirty sandals. The beds were clean and there were enough towels of remarkably good quality. Air conditioning worked perfectly, WiFi as well. One of the happy moments was when we could watch a sloth with its baby in the surrounding trees.

Perfect house on the breezy side of the island. The house has everything you need and the host is very accommodating.

We enjoyed our stay at Casa Roca. The property was comfortable and the view is beautiful! It was quiet and relaxing. The caretaker was wonderful and very helpful. He would check up on us and was a joy to chat with. We had to make changes to our reservation due to the airline out of San Jose cancelling our flights. Jerry was prompt with responding and accommodating the changes. Highly recommended.

Casa Roca is a beautiful home, plenty of space, and a knockout deck overlooking the water. The path into town isn't as challenging as some reviews have said, but it never rained hard when we were there so we don't know how it would be when wet. The caretaker is very helpful with just about anything we needed. We would definitely stay there again.

Casa Roca is a lovely home on Bastimentos. Jerry, the owner, was prompt with his replies, so it was easy to book. Santiago, the caretaker, was there whenever we needed him--whether it was transporting luggage in a wheelbarrow or fixing a water pump. The house is just as depicted and very comfortable. Believe the comments that you need sturdy shoes to trek to the house. It's less than a 10 minute walk to Old Bank, but when it rains, your feet will be wet and muddy. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend Casa Roca to everyone!!

Great location facing the Caribbean Sea that provides a nice cooling breeze. The house is well equipped for cooking and then enjoying your time on the deck. . Wizard beach is a 30 minutes walk through Old Bank then the rain forest; well worth it to get to this beautiful sand beach that has been left undeveloped.
