A common theme of owners is that we all fell in love with the island, the life style and culture. Our community of villas was dedicated to Caribbean culture, so before the ground work had even started; we spoke for the Villa Makoshi Penthouse. Since that day we continue to meet and maintain new friends from places abroad. Upon leaving Bonaire, we now say we have left home and arrived back in Canada. Both Dianne and I hope you enjoy your stay in our home in Bonaire.

Dianne & Doug purchased this villa in 2008

Our villa is towards the north end of Kralendijk, called Hato. The ocean is just across the street and we are close enough to walk or bike downtown or you can find dive shops, restaurants and retail stores just minutes away as well. A brand new spa and gym is right next door. The airport is south of us about 10 minutes by car.

Our resort is a gated community, bordered by a cactus fence around the complex. Our deck overlooks the pool and lush garden area that is encompassed by stone. Nestled in amongst the pool, you will find a quiet, serene opportunity to enjoy your holiday on the island. We face ocean side (west), so depending upon the wind blowing a few palm trees, the ocean is sometimes visible; as well as a bird's eye view of Kralendijk and the beautiful back country is always there.

Awesome Time, Again!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd time staying at a Perla Boneriano villa, making it our 2nd time at Villa Makoshi. It's a great villa, decorated to make you feel at home. It has everything you need, and if you also dive, there's a big sink to rinse gear and a drying area with heavy duty hangers. The location is ideal, within walking distance of one of the major dive shops and some restaurants. There wasn't much down time with all there is to do and do we did… mostly what we've done before, but this year we added some additional dives and 2 night snorkels. We love to "eat-in" to take advantage of the outdoor patio which is sheltered from the intense winds. Our favorite snorkeling spot is in the national park, which is becoming quite popular. Our trips have now become a tradition. So we will be back!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5
This is our second time at Villa Mikoshi and again, it has been a fabulous place to base our dive, snorkel, and windsurfing vacation. The villa is full of amenities and the deck is a great place to enjoy breakfast among the palm fronds. The pool is a definite plus, esp at the end of a day adventuring. The location gives easy access to all parts of the island. The owners, Doug and Diane are very responsive. The local management has also been attentive to any needs that arose during out stay.

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We were so glad to find Villa Makoshi Penthouse! The location is quiet and secure. It is not far from town, dive sites and shopping. There were 4 of us staying there and the villa is so roomy that we never felt crowded. For divers, the set up is perfect. It was nice to have the shower, rinse tank, and equipment hanging areas available. We especially appreciated the fast wifi and printer as we had to do some work while we were there. The people we met in the complex out by the pool were all so nice and very helpful with suggestions as to where to eat and dive. The management company, particularly Inge, was very attentive to anything we needed. We would certainly stay there again!

Great place for divers

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the upper apartment of Villa Makoshi for a week of diving and it was great. The apartment is clean, exactly as shown in the pictures and included all the kitchen and bathroom stuff we needed. The AC worked well. The dive gear can safely be hung to dry on the small balcony overnight (which can only be accessed from within the apartment, hangers provided), the wash basins and outdoor shower downstairs were convenient to rinse everything. The apartment worked well for two couples, each room had their own full bathroom. Both the owners and the people from the home care company were very friendly, prompt, and helpful. The location is really close to several dive shops (we dive with Wannadive). We'll be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the kind words. It's one thing to have a beautiful and fully equipped villa, but more importantly you need great property managers acting as your host to ensure you, our guests, are comfortable. This is what’s important to us. Glad your stay was memorable.

Fantastic Labor Day dive vacation

  • 5 of 5
My buddy & I spent a week at the Makoshi over Labor Day and had a great time. The villa is clean, modern and very comfortable. Service is terrific—if you have an issue; it’s taken care of quickly. Cooking is easy and we prepared several dinners as well as all breakfasts/lunches. It’s very quiet and peaceful and the pool is a great place to spend time (when you’re not in the ocean). I’ll definitely stay at Villa Makoshi the next time I visit Bonaire.
