Overview

About the property

Our holiday on Bonaire is cozy, spacious and gives you a wonderful feeling at home !!

They can accommodate up to eight people and is perfect for a family or dive company. Located in a quiet neighborhood on Mount (Santa Barbara), with a mature garden is the perfect chill out and enjoy the nice weather. The house has a big porch (veranda) where you can sit and eat. Several seats and a hammock ensure that everyone can find his spot. From the porch a staircase leads to the roof terrace from where you can see the sea.

When you open the sliding door to the porch forms a whole with the living room and open kitchen. On either side of the house are two bedrooms, two with en suite bathroom and the other two share a bathroom.

Behind the house is a terrace with BBQ and outside is a Jacuzzi. The perfect seat for the evening !!!

Our Toyota Hillux is for rent and costs 300 euros per week.

Excellent Experience, will certainly stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kaya Kuarts for eight nights. Carla and her family own a few other properties around Bonaire and it seems they are constantly making improvements to them, they are true lovers of Bonaire just like myself. I have never used VRBO for travel to Bonaire before but am pleased to say we had an excellent experience. We had a small party and used only part of the house. The home is located in a very nice residential part of Bonaire, but it worked perfectly, and was very safe and clean. The house has an air conditioner in each bedroom which worked well. We only ran the air conditioning in the evenings, which kept everything comfortable. We exceeded the electrical allotment a bit, I suppose we ran the air conditioning more than others would. We made our own meals about half of the time, the rest we explored the great options on the island. We were so impressed with Arnold, the property manager. He and Carla took great care of us. There was an issue with the internet initially, and Arnold surprised us by showing up at the house with a mifi from Telbo’s wireless company called Kla, it worked perfectly and allowed us to complete work and school obligations back home while we were away. Arnold was an amazing host, I cannot say enough about how great of a man he is. We kept in touch over WhatsApp, and any question or issue we had he would be ready to help, saying it was “his duty.” We also really enjoyed the Toyota hilux that is available for renters of the property. The truck was in good condition and is relatively new, it was perfect for scuba diving and getting around Bonaire. We took great care of the property the truck and Arnold and hope to stay again on our next visit.

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed several times in this house.It is very clean, spacious and has a great porch. (with very comfortable furniture)

The Jacuzzi is a bonus. we enjoy discussing the day in it.

We had family staying with us for some nights and they enjoyed it as well. We slept well, good beds, good AC.

You can park your car inside the gate. We will definitely come again!

Highly recommended quiet house on Bonaire

  • 4 of 5

It would be hard to do better with a rental house on Bonaire Island. This house is located in the Republiek/Santa Barbara area (don't confuse with Santa Barbara Crowns area). This is one of the safest residential areas on Bonaire and has an amazing view of the island and great sunsets to watch from the roof. You will need a car to stay here and the owners have one you can rent. We are a couple, so the house was bigger then we needed with 4 rooms. It had everything we needed including full kitchen set-up and rinse tank for scuba gear. The utility allowance was plenty for water and electricity especially if you conserve.

We have been to Bonaire several times and have stayed in all kinds of places from all-inclusive to cheep houses, to hotels and this was by far the nicest and CLEANEST house and a great price. The local manager is amazing and drove us around to the 3 properties they own, even before we booked since we were already on the island. The house was very clean when we arrived and they brought more clean towels and bedding half way through out 2 week stay.

I wish the back door and front sliding door had screens to keep out mosquitos, we did not use the air conditioner much and enjoyed opening up the house to fresh air, but the bugs get in. This is common on the island and the bedrooms do have screens, unlike most house and hotels, so this is not much of a complaint, just would make a 5 star over a 4 star review. The owners and manager are very attentive but give you your privacy. We were able to communicate for free on Whatsapp. Payment as an American was a little difficult because they only except a bank transfer or cash (don't confuse with wire transfer). This is easy b/w banks, but since we were already on the island it proved difficult to do a bank transfer from my US bank to an overseas bank online, so we paid cash which is easy to get at ATM's. I would suggest to the owners to accept a paypal transfer as a "send someone money" for US clients, because in the US we are warned against "Wire" transfers even though this is a "bank" to bank transfer, it worries people. Having said that, those reading this should not be worried about doing a bank transfer (not a wire transfer), all was legitimate. A bank transfer is a common payment method with Dutch people and how they do payments with ATM cards. All was documented well. even though we paid cash, and they gave us cash back for our deposit on the last day. Absolutely no problems!

Prima huis van alle gemakken voorzien

  • 5 of 5

Het is een mooi huis, grote veranda, jacuzi, goede bedden. Voor duikers is er een aparte ruimte om de spullen te laten drogen en een bak om te spoelen. De auto erbij huren is een aanrader. De ontvangst op het vliegveld is goed geregeld door de beheerder van het huis. Arnold zorgt ervoor dat het je aan niets ontbreekt! Wij hebben een geweldige tijd gehad.

heerlijk rustig huis met riante porch

  • 5 of 5

Een heerlijk groot huis met veel leefruimte buiten in de schaduw. Dat is fijn, want het is erg heet, dus je leeft voornamelijk buiten op de porch. De keuken is voorzien van veel servies en bestek, compleet met koelkast, vaatwasser, waterkoker etc. De slaapkamers zijn allemaal voorzien van heerlijke bedden met klamboes en airconditioning. Veel kastruimte ook overal.

De beheerder is een erg vriendelijke bonairiaan die altijd klaar staat om je te helpen en je tips te geven. Hij weet leuke plekjes en kent veel mensen. Echt leuk om op die manier onderdeel te zijn van het dagelijks leven daar.

De wijk is rustig en veilig. Het is een mix van locale bewoners en Nederlanders die er min of meer permanent wonen. Je leeft echt tussen de plaatselijke bevolking.

De overbuurvrouw (Nederlandse) organiseert kano excursies naar de mangrove. Echt de moeite waard met veel extra's ten op zichte van andere aanbieders. Ze werkt samen met een bonairiaan die wederom veel kan vertellen over de mangrove. En aan het eind is er een goedverzorgde snack met fruit, chips, koek, drinken en rumpunch. Zalig!

Kortom: een aanrader!
