dive location without ever leaving the property. Also a great location for night dives. Enjoy the outside shower after the dive to rinse off. The dive boat is leaving from the neighbours deck. Gorgeous view from the sundeck on Klein Bonaire, Kralendijk and Washington slagbaai park..

Your own private reef...so to speak.

  • 5 of 5
Casa Iguana is an amazing place. We stayed downstairs and it was even better than the pictures. Out front to the left of the house there is storm wreckage from Hurricane Omar and now its become an artificial reef for over 30 different species... I lost count after 30. Its not as pretty as Klein Bonaire... just sandy bottom mostly, but WOW! to just climb down the ladder and swim in your own personal aquarium was AWESOME! Ron was a very nice host and took care of us when we couldnt get our stored emails for instructions to enter the house. He was extremely helpful with questions I had setting up the trip. Cooking most meals at home (aka Casa Iguana) every night was pretty easy (as we brought our 7 and 11 year olds with us and with Dutch cuisine... -but know we love the Dutch people- its on par with the English) lots of spices and good selection of pans in the kitchen- check it out before going to the grocery. We travel alot internationally and Bonaire is one of the first places I'm planning to go back again and soon. When I do Ill be staying at Casa Iguana, no question! Great jumping off the deck (one of the highlights for the kids and the husband) but no railing for little guys so Id say 5-7 and up depending upon your kids ability to follow directions:-)

Wunderschön gelegenes, geräumiges Feriendomizil

  • 5 of 5
Die Bewertung bezieht sich auf die untere von zwei Wohneinheiten in diesem Haus.
Die Casa Iguana machte gleich zu Beginn unseres Aufenthaltes ihrem Namen alle Ehre, denn ein großer Leguan nutzte gemeinsam mit uns die sehr großzügige Terrasse, um sich zu sonnen. Es gibt viele Leguane auf der ganzen Insel und leider auch viele Mücken, zumindest in dieser Jahreszeit. Deshalb ist das Haus überall mit Mückengittern ausgestattet.
Überhaupt ist das Haus sehr gut ausgestattet. Für die beiden geräumigen Schlafzimmer gibt es eine Klimaanlage und jeweils ein eigenes, ebenfalls sehr geräumiges Badezimmer. Zusätzlich gibt es noch eine Gästetoilette. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet, besonders nützlich fanden wir die im Kühlschrank integrierte Eismaschine. Der weitläufige, geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnraum bietet einen großen Esstisch und eine sehr schöne Sitzecke mit Blick aufs Meer. Diese habe wir allerdings kaum genutzt weil wir natürlich meistens auf der Terrasse saßen.
Letztere bietet viel Platz und verfügt über einen großen Esstisch und etliche Liegen. Außerdem stehen ein gemauerter Grill und eine Süßwasserdusche zur Verfügung. Seitlich am Haus befinden sich noch zwei Wasserbecken zur Reinigung von Tauchausrüstung und eine abschließbare Holzhütte, um diese aufzubewahren und zu trocknen.
Man kann von der Terrasse über eine Leiter direkt ins Meer. Normalerweise (Ostwind) ist das Wasser sehr ruhig und klar und der Einstieg problemlos möglich. Wir hatten einmal ein wenig rauhe Bedingungen mit etwas Wellengang, was den Ein- und Ausstieg zu einer eher sportlichen Angelegenheit machte. Es gibt keinerlei Zaun oder Gitter zum Wasser hin, weshalb die Terrasse für Kleinkinder nicht geeignet ist.
Der sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter steht einem mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, hat viele gute Tipps für den Urlaub generell und das Tauchen insbesondere. Wenn man bei Ihm wohnt bekommt man auch Rabatte bei Tauchläden und einer Autovermietung.
Insgesamt war die Casa Iguana für uns als Familie mit zwei fast erwachsenen Kindern ein ideales Feriendomizil.

Great dive site right off the deck.......

  • 5 of 5
Casa Iquana was a huge part of making our vacation on Bonaire perfect. Breakfast, lunch, and supper right at the waters edge was just what we were looking for and with a well stocked kitchen relaxing meals were a breeze. Close to everything - airport, dive sites, grocery store and town center. Hope we can return in the not too distant future.

Great spot for families

  • 5 of 5
What a revelation! We were willing to go anywhere in the Caribbean but needed a place that was family friendly (we have a 10 and 8 year old, and a 4-month old baby). We needed the right blend of comfort and adventure and CasaIguana and Bonaire were perfect. Ron was super helpful in getting us set up for the baby, complete with crib (pay a little extra), high chair, etc. The place would not be great for a toddler (no railing against ocean) but was perfect for us - our older kids could snorkel off the back deck, while the baby rested calmly with us or inside. There was a very nice snorkel beach very close by (we called it the '30-second beach' because it was that close). The big grocery store had everything we needed (for vegetarians, babies). Our biggest concern was privacy, but in the end one of our best parts of the trip was meeting and getting to know our neighbors upstairs. We adored having wind-surfing lessons, going to the Donkey Sanctuary, and exploring the National Park. We would only warn against lizards that want to eat your lunch. We also enjoyed Klein Bonaire for snorkeling (and "1000 steps" - another great spot). Great gelato spot downtown, and some nice crafts downtown when the cruise ships dock. Overall, a wonderful house and a great spot for a family vacation. We would definitely return.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Casa Iguana was the highlight of our 25th anniversary vacation. We stayed at three locations on Bonaire over our 3 week vacation and had our children, ages 18 and 20, with us for 8 days. Part of their stay was at Casa Iguana and the first thing our son did was check how deep the water was and then did a running leap off the back dock in the deep area. Casa Iguana is the first floor of a two story house and it has a great layout: sunken living room, dining area and open kitchen all in one big room overlooking the back patio, and then two bedrooms and two large bathrooms down a hall. With the breeze blowing from the front of the house, we felt very comfortable with the back doors open with just the screen doors. Each of the bedrooms had A/C which we used at night. The place had everything one could possibly need for cooking, for listening to music (I-Dock), beach towels, washing machine, clothesline, scuba gear cleaning area and hangars, etc. We were very impressed. The owner even offered a small Christmas tree and lights to set up which we did set up in the living room. My husband and son dove out back. The entrance/exit steps were a little bit tricky, but other than that it was beautiful! Casa Iguana is located across the street from Roomer Rest which was very good, and had a nice atmosphere. For scuba diving services, such as tanks, weights, boat dives, we used Carib Inn and were extremely pleased as always. We hope to return some day and would recommend Casa Iguana to everyone!!

PERFECT!!

  • 5 of 5
The accomodations are wonderful !!!!!!!!!!! We really enjoy staying @ Casa Iguana. We will be back in December & there was not a question on where we would stay. Ocean front is the only way to stay.

Staying on the South side of town is perfect for divers. The majority of dive sites are South and only a few minutes away from the house. Dive intervals can also be spent back at the house in comfort. Grocery store & gas station are also really easy to get to. Roomers is just across the road if you want drink/food.

Enjoy!!!!
