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.

Property was exactly as stated. Clean, quiet, well maintained. AC kept bedrooms and living room very comfortable. Kitchen equipped with everything needed. Water pressure in showers top notch. Hassle free communication with owners. Most enjoyable stay.
I wrote a prior review, but hit "4" stars. Wanted to hit "5". Dee & Roy were great. Facility safe, just outside of town, and beautiful! One of our 4 were not divers, and spent many afternoons around the pool and on the porch, or in watching the US elections on the cable TV! *** What surprised us on the entire Island was that even around the bars and restaurants, there was little music, and ones who played music, keep it down or moderate. The condos were the same things. It was quiet and restful! Even if you're not a diver, this would be a great place to go, with laptop, just to get caught up on work and to enjoy the sunsets and good food. *** Condo in excellent condition! So clean, bright, and lively. This place is a paradise away from home, and an Island not as commercialized as Grand Cayman and some others. More rustic and natural, yet all the ammenitites you'd want. Crime not an issue. Excellent rinse tank and outside storage locker for equipment to dry while hanging! The whole condo safe and secured by gated locks and solid walls. Give it a try! My wife and I plan to be back.... :-)
Nice place. Roy very accommodating. He manages the condo for owner. He also owns 1 or 2 of the condo's, so he has vested interest that the place is safe & enjoyable. We allowed Roy to make rental arrangements for us. He did through a guy named Roel. Roel, young married man working hard at starting his own business, but has only 1 vehicle in his fleet, an older pickup truck, w/ over 100k mile. Met our needs, but would have enjoyed new/newer truck like other people rented. I think Roy is just trying to help Roel out, & I can appreciate that. Roel is a nice guy, even came out & did not charge us to replace a tire that went flat. **Dee - the owner, very kind and responsive to all correspondence! In Viriginia most of the time, I presume, but has phone access to anyone on the Island if anything needed, but Roy is her go to guy when you're there. No need to contact her once there. Condo's are the FIRST set of residential buildings just outside of town, North, on the right side. Good location. Condo was one of like 12-14 that are all in a little community w/ a gated & secured wall around them. Beautiful maintained pool sits right in the midde of the condo's. It's like 6-7 condo's with second floor ones too. Pool is maintained because we saw a native working on it during the week, & clean. Nice palm trees around, like the pictures show, & attractive front porches & pavement between them & the pool. Lovely setting! *** Nice big rinse tank & outside locked storage unit to hang all gear on. We discovered that 2 families in other condo's were repeat customers. Like 7+ times they had been coming, over a period of years. We noticed some of them would hang some of their dive gear out to dry during the day, & often overnight. We did with our wet suits, bags, towels & snorkles, but I felt better hanging the regs & BCD's in the storage closet with it locked. We were told by one of the regular visitors that they've had minor thefts before. More opportunistic as opposed to someone planning a heist. We never encountered any theft. *The inside of the condo was nice! Very beauitiful & functional! My wife & I & in-laws stayed here. Plenty of space for the 4 of us. *** Only suggestions: 1) Solar Water. So take day or night showers if you want hot water. Not major accommodation. AWESOME strong/big shower thought! 2) Ate meals on porch a lot. Several times in sandals injured our feet/toes on door jam on porch, 3) hit head twice on LOW Oven hood.
Our 3rd stay in the last 2 years at Perla Boneriano and our 2nd stay at Villa Chikitu.
Everything described on the web site is as it is when you get there. Very clean and also cleaning done twice a week.
First off you will be pleased with the excellent communication with the owners. Always a quick answer to any question you may have.
The home is in excellent condition and has all the amenities one would need for your vacation stay.
The dive rinse tank and dive locker are great additions for your dive vacation.
The property is located in a gated compound with 6 other buildings and has a wonderfully tropically landscaped pool area that all the buildings surround.
The location is one of the most convenient we have found in our 9 different trips to Bonaire, close to town, close to a number of dive shops to get your tanks and close to several great and easy entry dive sites.
You can get to the north or south dive sites very easily and also there are plenty of shops close by including grocery and places to dine out.
We would Highly recommend that anyone looking to stay in Bonaire check this place out.
Thanks Billy and Dee for keeping a great place.
My husband & I stayed @ Perla Boneriano, for 2 weeks in January 2016. We rented Villa Chikitu, which is really a very nice vacation home. Perla Boneriano is little gated complex of individual homes, located in the Hato neighborhood and is very close to Kralendijk. Bonaire is a small island, so nothing is really very far and this home is centrally located which is very convenient. Rent a car and you are close to everything. There are plenty of stores for groceries and the currency is US dollars. The pictures on this website don't lie or oversell at all. If you like what you see, you can rest assured that is what you will find when you arrive. On other vacations In the past, we have paid less and gotten less; we have even paid more and gotten less...neither of which makes for a good vacation experience. We felt this home gave us everything we wanted/needed and was a good value for us. We definitely give 2 thumbs up to Perla Boneriano and specifically to Villa Chikitu. We are highly recommending this property if you are looking for a nice place that is: very comfortable with A/C and ceiling fans throughout, Cable TV and free WiFi, clean, quiet, relaxing, and secure, with an easy location to everything. Great shore snorkeling/diving is right across the street and the on-site pool is very nice for cooling off or just relaxing when you just want to stay "close to home". Dee & Billy have done a splendid job to make this home a wonderful vacation get-away, with all the amenities you could want, and everything worked well. They even provided us with a cell phone for local use and emergencies. Their pride of ownership really shined through....thanks guys!
I really can't say enough about Dee and Billy's Villa Chikitu. We had 2 couples staying in the place and had plenty of room. IMO the location is perfect as you're a short drive to downtown and pretty centrally located to all of the diving. The place is well equipped (even has a charcoal grill) and we had no problem having all the tools we needed to prepare meals. Internet access was great and cable TV worked well. AC in all of the rooms that cooled them down quick even after having them shut off all day while we were out diving. I also appreciated the fact that the location is ECO friendly with their solar water heater. Being the equipment specialist for our dive team i really appreciated the drive up rinse tank and gear locker. Made rinsing so easy at the end of the day and the gear locker is secure as well as handled 4 full sets of gear. We even picked up a couple of packets of gear shampoo from the local dive shop and did our deep soak/cleaning of all the gear before heading back home. Saved me from having to do that in the cold back home. :-) Finally the communication from Dee was fantastic and they have a binder in the room all tabbed out that walks you through everything in the villa. Like trying to figure out that European cooking oven and what the temp in Celsius should be without looking it up on the internet. Thanks for everything and can't wait until the next trip down.
Located in Hato which is central between north and the south dive sites. Easy access to grocery stores, restaurants, dive shops. Coco and Spice Beach is nearby to watch the sunset on the waters of Bonaire over Kline Bonaire or go snorkling or diving at this nice beach area. Spice Beach Club is the hot spot on Friday nights with great happy hour events.
