The Neighborhood: The villa is located in a small, quiet resort that is gated with electric gates at the entrance. Across the street are several resorts & dive shops including 'Bonaire Dive & Adventure' and 'Buddy Dive'. There are several restaurants/lounges located within the resorts. Next door is a gym that offers various fitness programs and massage. Also next door is the MCB Bank which is one of the main banks on the island & has a bank machine. Across the street is a spa that offers massage, pedicure, etc. Across the street is a small convenience/liquor store and an ice-cream parlor. The ocean is across the street and accessible via the several dive shops mentioned above. A quiet, sandy beach is a 5 minute waIk. It is about a 15-minute walk to downtown or a 2-minute drive where you'll find grocery stores, lots of restaurants, and shopping. The airport is about a 12-minute drive. The popular shore diving sites extend from one end of the island to the other, and we are centrally located among them

Why Bonaire: After visiting many popular Caribbean destinations, we visited Bonaire after hearing about the spectacular diving. Since that first visit, we've gone nowhere else! Not only is the diving second to none, the island is very different than other popular vacation destinations. When you arrive, you feel like you're visiting your second home. The island is laid back, quiet, safe, and just feels like home from the moment you arrive. We've brought many friends with us to Bonaire over the years, and most have returned to the island because they too fell in the love with Bonaire.

Angie, Owner purchased this villa in 2008

Why Angie, Owner chose Bonaire

While visiting Bonaire several times, we were able to stay on different parts of the island and experience different neighborhoods. We chose this area because of its proximity to the main town, Kralendijk. It's within a minute's drive or a quick walk of the main shopping area. The airport is less than a 5 minute drive. We're also located directly across the street from several large resorts making access to dive tanks & restaurants/bars quick and easy. And most importantly, we're located in the middle of all the great dive sites. So whether you head south or north, you're going to find the best diving & snorkeling in the Caribbean.

What makes this villa unique

Relax on the covered patio only steps from the pool. Easily load and unload your dive gear when parked right next to the side entrance and the rinse station. Hang your gear to dry outside in the breeze and then bring inside at night for maximum security. Recharge your camera and light batteries easily with our recharge station.

Bonaire & Villa Makoshi

Bonaire & Villa Makoshi
  • 5 of 5
Bonaire has the reputation of being laid back, slower paced and very tranquil. This is all quite true; the island also offers fun places to visit and exceptional restaurants. Bonaire is a small island located in the Southern Caribbean known for its pioneering role in the in preservation of nature, particular the preservation of the marine environment.

This was my first visit, enticed by the stories of some of the most incredable diving in the world. This trip I went with friends, overall we had a wonderful trip. The diving was exceeded what I expected. Another island gem is Ville Makoshi which has a lovely setting, from the villa itself to the landscaping surrounding it which was peaceful is well thought out. The villa itself was very clean, and large, with adequate seating all guests and ceiling fans the warmer evenings. The bedrooms were air conditioned which made sleep very comfortable so we were well rested for another day of diving. We had a living room, & a full kitchen and dining area, two bedrooms with full bathrooms, and a storage area so you do not have to carry your gear far from the truck after it was rinsed it off in the conveniently located outside rinse basins The patio was large with tables, chairs; lounge chairs, a pool in the common area, for relaxing and enjoying the day's diving stories The dive shop was very close to the villa, I found the dive shops helpful. The restaurants in the area had great menus with excellent food. We especially enjoyed our dinner at "Unbelievable"

I expect there are many ways to describe Bonaire: "Best Kept Secret", "Unhurried'', "Unspoiled", "Unforgettable"; "Divers Paradise". The fact is that I found all these statements are true, and then some. There are a number of reasons people should visit this island. There is the climate, the water, the sun, great food, excellent diving. I found that I did not have enough time to do all I wanted to do. It is also the warmth and friendliness of the people & the diving is what will bring me back, as well as the adventures of Kayaking in the mangroves

Luxury Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
This truly is a luxury "home away from home". The modern construction, sturdy furniture, and well thought out and decorative furnishings are spectacular. The bedrooms are large with more than enough closet/storage space. The bathrooms have modern showers, sinks, toilet, and lighting and everything works very well. The outdoor pool is great for a dip between or after dives (nice lights at night!). The outdoor shower and gear rinsing station not only are very effective and convenient, but the rinse station also looks great! This property is across the street from convenience stores and a dive shop and it is not far from the townsite (I walked to town). The washing machine is a great convenience also. The Makoshi is well situated on the island - close to the airport and its central location makes getting to the North and South shore dive sites easy. I would definately recommend staying at the Makoshi!!

I had the privilege to stay here in April of 2009 and found the unit to be extremely well kept. Access to amenities is excellent as well as access to the city.

The private pool, and having a propane BBQ on the patio make life so much easier for the renter. Nothing like lounging in the pool with a beer and cooking up dinner at the same time!
