Always a great vacation at Villa Chikitu
Everything in the VRBO description is accurate. Our 3rd stay here, love the convenience and the privacy and you will love the home itself. Close to everything including dive sites, restaurants and grocery. Owner very responsive to any questions or comments. Thanks again Billy and Dee
We are so happy you enjoyed your trip. You are welcome back again anytime! Thank you for your review. We look forward to hearing from you next time.
Dee and Bily
Lovely January 2017 Stay
Bonaire is a divers' dream! We have already recommended it to a few of our friends.
This villa helped to make our trip truly enjoyable. Central to all the dive spots and to a number of great restaurants. Please try: Between 2 Buns..... absolutely the best sandwiches and desserts and a very short walk, as well as Captain Don's ( a little longer walk!) for a yummy buffet and wonderful cocktails at sundown.
We appreciated the twice weekly bed change and cleaning, large bathrooms, the open kitchen and the comfy chairs inside. Lots of ice trays, large refrigerator and a quite private but open porch to the pool were a plus too. Thank you to our hosts for sharing your home!
We are very happy you enjoyed your stay. Please come back again!
This property is just as described, well furnished, clean and comfortable. It was great!
We had a great time! Location is great, close to beaches and restaurants and beach bars. Everything you need is there. The property is well maintained and clean. Terrific owners and manager! I will definitely be back.
When a guest is happy that makes us happy. We look forward to your return. Thank you and I know our Manager will be happy that you mentioned him as well. He is a wealth of knowledge about the island.
Very enjoyable stay at Villa Chikutu
This was our first trip to Bonaire and our first experience booking our own lodging through VRBO versus staying at a resort. The accommodations were exactly as advertised. We would definitely recommend Villa Chikitu as a comfortable place to stay on the island.
*We appreciated the safety of the small, gated community (not that we felt unsafe anywhere on the island).
*Even with some of the other villas occupied while we were there, it was very quiet and relaxing.
*Roy, the property manager met us at the airport right after we picked up our bags and drove us the short way to the villa. He even provided us with a cell phone so that we could stay in touch with him when we needed anything.
*Everything was clean and housekeeping came twice during the week.
*The location is great. Walking distance to the beach and a Dive Friends dive shop location (across the street), and restaurants. Ilsa at the dive shop was indispensable in helping us to plan great diving experiences all week. Very close drive to downtown shopping and restaurants. Easy drive to North dive sites, slightly longer South.
*So convenient to drive up to rinse tank/shower/gear locker.
*Communication with owner, Dee, was always promptly responded to and she was most helpful in providing information prior to our trip.
*Air conditioning and wifi worked perfectly.
*There were lots of gnats and mosquitos at night and even with good bug repellant they were annoying enough to keep us from enjoying the patio. We will likely choose a place with a screened porch next time as I enjoy sitting outside in the evening after a day of diving. It was also rather warm on the porch during the day (it was August after all) so a ceiling fan would have made it more comfortable.
*The BBQ grill is not of good quality and the owners require you to let the coals cool 48 hours before disposing of them, so we used it less than we anticipated.
*We rented a truck from Roy, but after some investigation determined that his rate was quite a bit higher than the standard rental car companies. He did however bring us a replacement truck right away when the battery died in the first one.
*The one time we took a shower early in the day, there was not as much hot water as in the afternoon/evening, so just plan accordingly.
*The bathrooms are modern and updated. The decor in other parts of the villa could use equivalent updating. However, all was comfortable and there is enough seating.
Hey guys, thank you for your review, I am happy you had a nice time.Since this is your first visit to Bonaire at the hottest time of year I am not sure you understand the climate or the accomodation. I dont know what your expectations about Bonaire were,but we are considered one of the most up to date and well kept properties on the island and in Perla. Sorry about your nat problem it is very hot in August. We have a lot of repeat guests.The barbque suggestions is so that you dont start a fire and we have not had any complaints about it and it is quite reasonable. If you Bar B Q just make sure the coals are cool and dont dump them in my garden. .
We are a self service community set up for divers. Our accomodations are up to date and we pride ourselves with keeping our home up to date.
If you try something else as a comparison and you will see we are the best for customer service and accomodations. Happy Diving.
Another wonderful stay in Villa Chikitu
This trip marked our second stay at Villa Chikitu in less than 9 months. Not bragging but we just like the island and this location so much. The villa has everything you could probably need, personal drive up rinse tank, outdoor shower to rinse off the sand and salt and outdoor lockable dive gear storage. Literally 4 steps from rinse tank to storage locker making gear handling so easy. Between 2 Buns, Sand Dollar, Buddy Dive and Captain Dons are a short stroll to grab a meal or a drink. Great location and hope to get back soon!!!
Thank you for returning so quickly. We hope to see you again soon!
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.
Thank you for the great review. Glad you enjoyed your stay, please come back soon.
