Great holiday with large terrace and excellent facilities!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a quiet area close to dive friends Bonaire. It is a 12 min walk along the sea to city center (we did that walk every night). 15 min from Eden Beach and Coco Beach (where you can rent a shaded chair by the sea for 5$). The house was everything we expected. Bed was comfortable with quality mosquitos net and Air/C. The highlight was certainly the back patio where we could sip our drinks after a day of diving. I recommend the 9 min walk to Bobbejan's rib place (2 Kaya Albert Engelhardt) open only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays 6-10pm, (sunday 12-2 pm also). The best place to hang is at the little Havana café on Friday nights. They have some reasonably priced Cuban cigars (or you can bring your own too and have a drink). The Palu di Mangel Beach (not far from the airport but frankly with few planes a day not bothering at all....) is a good place to snorkel but there aren't many shaded places available. However the Kite City food truck there is as good as any upscale restaurant in Kralendjik (try the tune sashimi if they have it). We tried "It rains fishes" (24 Kaya Jan N E Craane; this is on the main street by the sea and they have a website), good food quality at tourist prices. If you go, I recommend the catch of the day. However, wines on the list are way too expensive for what they worth. Ingridiënts restaurant (85 Kaya Gob. N. Debrot just beside buddy dive resort; they have a website too) had a better wine list at more reasonable prices (we had a white Cortese from Piedmont for 35$), the view on the sea and pier is nice and you can see some divers doing night diving. My Marlin steak was cook (or should I say uncooked) to perfection! It was a bit pricey too but nothing unbearable. The grocery store Van Den Tweel have a small selection of wines. A lot of crap but the best are the ones by Nederburg, Vondeling and Casa Lapostolle (ranging from $8 to 16$). The Washington Slagbaai National Park worth it for us (we had a little truck to go), did diving there (slightly wilder than dive places outside the park). It is probably the best place to photograph Pink Flamingos, lizards and cactus (N.B. you need to buy the permit to enter the park). We did not need the intervention of the owner for anything but he welcomed us and seemed available for any concern or information we could have had/needed. I would certainly go back to this house. P.S. The person who welcomed us also speaks French.

Heerlijk vakantiehuis!

  • 4 of 5

Wij hebben 16 dagen genoten van dit fijne huis. Alles is aanwezig en de locatie is goed, het centrum van Kralendijk is prima aan te lopen. Doordat het huis in een woonwijk ligt hoor je zo nu en dan wel hanen, honden of de lokale bevolking. Maar daar krijg je een heel leuke plek voor terug! We hebben iedere ochtend en avond heerlijk op de veranda of in de pool gezeten.

Het huis was schoon en werd na een week nogmaals schoongemaakt, ook voor het reinigen van de pool kwam iemand langs.

De beheerder was vriendelijk, goed bereikbaar en hielp ons snel verder bij vragen.

Dit huis is zeker een aanrader en wij hopen snel weer terug te komen!

Heerlijk huis

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben een maand genoten op deze lokatie. Gelegen in een leuke wijk tussen de locals. Alles was mooi schoon, ruime kamers en een fijne keuken. We zijn netjes ontvangen en zelfs opgehaald van het vliegveld. De veranda is heerlijk om tot 's avonds laat te zitten en het centrum van kralendijk is zelfs lopend prima te bereiken.

Wij hopen zeker terug te komen !

erg leuk vakantiehuis!

  • 4 of 5

Prima vakantiehuis met jacuzzi, ruim terras en prima faciliteiten! Ligging in een rustige buurt waar je de echte sfeer van Bonaire proeft!

Ligging t.o.v centrum Kralendijk prima , was een wandelingetje van 15min langs de zee! afstand tot zee 5 min om heerlijk te kunnen snorkellen!

Huis was erg schoon opgeleverd en het contact met verhuurder(y...) was uitstekend! voor vragen stond zij direct klaar !

Kortom een aanrader als je niet in een resort wil zitten en een eigen plek zoekt om het eiland te verkennen!

Super cosy bonairiaans huis!

  • 5 of 5

Echt genoten van dit mooie eiland en geweldige huis. Lekker lokaal, dichtbij zee, midden in het centrum. Mijn man duikt en voor hem was het ideaal om op loopafstand van de duikschool te zitten. En van alle gemakken voorzien. De jacuzzi in de tuin is heerlijk om af te koelen en alhoewel ik liever niet was op vakantie was het toch fijn gebruik te kunnen maken van de wasmachine. Dank voor alles en als wij weer terugkeren naar dit mooie eiland komen we zeker weer bij jullie.

okay stay

  • 3 of 5

We stayed in this property from Sept. 08th to 22nd. When we arrived we got picked up by a taxi from the airport and got the keys handed. That was it - no local contact information at all, no welcome folder, nothing. When we arrived the was no gas for cooking, no toilet paper and almost no water pressure (flushing the toilet meant no more water anywhere). The gas got replaced the next day (I guess the pool guy arranged that, the toilet paper we bought ourselves and the water issue was part of our entire vacation).

The overall property is okay, not great. At lot of switches, plugs and issues here and there which we mastered to figure out by our own (try and error). If you're used to resort vacations I suggest to book something else. If you're a bit in MacGyver mode then you can think about giving it a shoot.

One other thing is that we had water inside the kitchen dripping from the wall... a guy came by the next day but had no clue where it was coming from. Some days later I realized that it came from somewhere inside but the only thing I was able to do was sending a message via this website to the renter (as I did many time)... not a single reply came back. The lack of communication is really an issue.

The house is placed in a local neighborhood which is okay. In front of the house (other side of the street) stands a 30 feet container as it is used on ships as the locals are storing stuff in these... looks really bad but the front of the house you only see while entering and leaving. The neighbors are locals so be prepared for some nice talks, kids fixing their bikes in front of the house, donkeys on the street messing around with the trashcan and music here and there when you don't expect it (once again: it is not a resort vacation).

Overall the stay was okay but not great. I’m used to many places in the world and Bonaire is an island with different pace. Still, the lack of communication with the local agency or the dutch renter is a “no-go” which should really be addressed quickly.

For divers from the Netherland I can suggest the Gooodive which is just around the corner and for divers from Germany I suggest the Tropical Divers right across the street of the Plaza resort (close to the airport)

Other than that: Bonaire is great and island itself compensated the property downsides.
