Bon Bini Billy and Dee here. We are from Virginia Beach, Virginia in the USA. Lets Go DIVING!! We have been coming to Bonaire for over 20 years. We have been spoiled by the ease of shore diving in Bonaire and keep coming back over and over again. We love the local people and feel very safe on the island also known as 'Divers Paradise'. We are also the owners of a beautiful Parrott: A Moluccan Cockatoo named Rosey. We invite you to enjoy Villa Chikitu on Bonaire and treat her as your own. Bon Bini!!
Owner of Villa Chikitu purchased this villa in 2009
Perla Boneriano is the ultimate location!! Quiet, centrally located and within walking distance to banks, liqour stores,groceries, retaurants, and of course DIVING!! This is the only resort built by a local Bonairian and it shows with the architecture. We have the best of both worlds. You are in the middle of north and south, you can choose to boat dive or our preference is shore diving. We have been going to Bonaire over 20 years and chose this location for our vacation home. We love the ease of shore diving because we can dive on our own schedule. After many years of time share ownership we decided to purchase our own Bonaire Villa @ Perla Boneriano. We chose this location because it is central to all dive sites and dive shops, restaurants, banks and convenience stores. We also know the builder, Roy Celestjn. We especially liked this villa because it is built in the true Bonairian Traditional Architecture. This is a private one story home and everything is on the first floor with no one above, it stands alone with lush tropical plants and view of the pool with LED lights. Located across the street from Sand Dollar, Wanna Dive, Dive Friends, Buddy Dive, gift shops, liquor store, spa, BonBida gym, and of course the beautiful Caribbean Sea only 700 feet.

We had an excellent stay in villa Chikitu in March. We absolutely liked:
1. Communicating with Dee - the response was very fast, professional and very enjoyable. It was our first visit to Bonaire and Dee provided us with a lot of useful information.
2. The villa is excellent. It is very clean, has comfortable beds and furniture. A nice kitchen. It is also very private.
3. The property is very nice - it is like a private oasis with pull, palms and flowers. We absolutely liked the outside sink to wash our snorkeling gear - I am sure divers will appreciate it even more.
4. The location of the villa is very convenient. You can access downtown in 5 min, major groceries stores in 10 min, airport in 20 min. We strongly recommend to rent a car/truck to enjoy the island. The property is gated and there is plenty of space for parking.
5. We really appreciate professionalism of the property manager. Roy picked up us in airport (our flight was delayed). We had a bottle of nice red vine as a compliment - very nice touch after 6 hrs flight. Roy also checked several time with us during our stay making sure that everything is fine.
I hope we will be back soon.
Villa Chikitu is a great place and Dee and Billy are great hosts. Since we travel a bit, we've developed a number of ways by which we look at accomodations-location, value, space, quiet(we tend to sleep in), comfy beds, and, bear with us, an adequate number of hangers. This place is a great deal; basically a beautiful, spacious house(which Dee and Billy, as owners, have lovingly furnished and maintained); it passed the "sleep-in" test every day; the comfy beds probably helped that; great beaches, snorkeling and diving are just across the street; and there were an abundance of hangers! One must note how responsive to and tolerant of Dee is to questions and requests for advice. Ask her-she knows a lot about a lot about Bonaire and loves sharing the island with her guests. And having a great on-site manager, Roy(ask him too!), is just an additional expression of just how much Dee and Billy really care about their guests. Savvy travelers looking for a warm vacation spot and a great place to stay need to check out Villa Chikitu!!!
Great time good cottage well equipped.
Spent another perfect week in Bonaire. It was our 6th visit to the island and 5th at Villa Chikitu. Dee and Billy made several nice upgrades this year. The villa gets better and more convenient every year. Love the dive tanks. First floor makes it easy to move gear and quiet! Plenty of hot water and air conditioning in the villa. Very nice pool area. Excellent housekeeping and helpful local management. Security is great, we heard of other divers who had problems in "private residences" on the road to Rincon, but never had a hint of a problem in Perla Boneriano. The diving couldn't have been better.
Super séjour à Bonaire. Maison parfaitement adaptée aux plongeurs (bac de rinçage, douche, emplacement pour stocker le matériel) et très bien placée (club de plongée à 300 m, restaurant à 100 m, ...). La maison est très agréable et la résidence calme. Roy, nous a récupéré à l'aéroport et nous a ramené à la maison en nous laissant le pickup à disposition pour la semaine. Très pratique...
Nous reviendrons certainement avec nos enfants.
Had an excellent 2 weeks staying at Villa Chikitu. We where met at the airport by the complex manager. A truck was arranged for us for our stay. By far the best way to enjoy the diving on the island. A very relaxing and enjoyable place to stay.
Located in Hato which is central between north and the south dive sites. Easy access to grocery, liquor, restaurants, dive shops. Sunset Beach is nearby to watch the sunset over Kline Bonaire or go snorkling or diving there as well. Spice Beach Club is the hot spot on Friday nights!
