Your email should be answered by us, Paradise Rentals, our office is located in the island of Bonaire. we are affiliated with RE/MAX Paradise Homes and we NEVER use a gmail account to answer your inquiries.

Anyone posing themselves to be the property manager and telling you they only accept wire transfer to some random European country is a fraud.
Just got back from a super amazing vacation in Bonaire, largely thanks to this amazing Villa, that has everything a snorkeler/diver can look for. First of all, this villa is huge, it has an amazing (and super comfortable) master bedroom, 2 smaller rooms with queen size beds, 1 room with two twin beds, and 1 room with 1 twin bed. All the rooms (minus 1) come with its own bathroom, which is amazing. However, the biggest draw of this place is the private pier. I can't emphasize how amazing the private pier is. As an avid scuba diver/snorkeler, I was in heaven. We scuba dived 4 times out of our own pier, going both directions, and the coral reefs were amazing. We also snorkeled everyday and saw so many sea creatures. This place really is a scuba diver/snorkeler's paradise. I can't wait to come back next year and do it again.
Why stay in cramped, crude quarters on your Bonaire vacation with your family or group when you can enjoy one of the most beautiful locations on the island in spacious and comfortable accommodations? Our group of five adult divers has stayed in several other villas in the Hato area of Kralendijk but none has had the spaciousness, the amenities, or the spectacular location that this one has.
The listing description was spot-on, and there is no doubt that the private pier directly out onto the house reef was the main attraction. It did not fail to meet our expectations, as the dives in both directions on the house reef are very nice and the entries and exits were easy and oh-so-convenient. Night dives are equally easy, with the water just steps away from the gear locker, rinse tank, shower, and of course the lanai and deck of the house. No stumbling over rocks, driving to get to the dive site, or cold and wet post-dive waits to get your gear off and get cleaned up. The water is just steps away from where you gear up and then get out of your wet things when you get out.
The deck overlooking the pier and the water is well shaded, roomy, inviting, and in the evening it provides a restful setting with a nice breeze and just about a perfect view of the setting sun across the Caribbean.
The bedrooms are comfortable and air conditioned, although there are also plenty of sliding doors and window shutters that can be opened to provide a very good natural breeze through the house when the wind is blowing. The kitchen, dining, and other spaces are roomy and well-stocked.
The villa location was perfect for us. Dive sites to the north are just minutes from the house and the Dive Friends Hamlet Oasis shop is located just down the road, which makes swapping tanks quick and easy. Zhung Kong Supermarket, which is well-stocked and has great prices, is right across from the dive shop. Easy dining spots like Eddy's, Bobbejan's, Pasa Bon Pizza, and others are also very close by. As with our previous visits to Bonaire, we made all of our arrangements through Paradise Rentals and everything went flawlessly. Our thanks to Elise, Rob, Tim, and especially Zwanet at Paradise Rentals for once again helping to make Bonaire such a fabulous experience for us. Don't bother with uncomfortable or run-down rentals. You expect a special experience, so spend a few more dollars and stay in this beautiful villa that may have the best private dive location on the island!
I'm going to Bonaire every year since 2009, and last time was the best. I always deal with Zwanet Kooij from Paradise Rentals and she always find the best villa for us. We rented villa Hato for 2 weeks had just had an amazing time in this villa. For our first time, we had our private diving site just in front of the villa. We did many day and night dives at ''home'' and realy like it!!! The house was very clean and very well located on the island. We were 5 adults, and we never felt like the house was too small. I recommended this villa already to 3 of my friends and will go back again next year. 5*****
We‘ve already been three times o Bonaire and stayed two times at the Hato Villa. The property is clean, well maintained and perfectly located at the ocean, which provides the opportunity to dive and swim at any time. A pier with a ladder secures a good and easy access to the ocean.
The house reef of the villa is as wonderful as all other diving spots on the island.
The villa also comes with a nice view to Klein Bonaire. As we are often travelling with a relatively big group, the villa with its 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms is the perfect place to stay in order to combine the whole group under one roof. One additional bedroom with a single bed is also available.
The big living room with a spacious and well equipped open kitchen, as well as the terrace offer enough space for everyone. Especially for divers, the cleaning facilities for the diving equipment in the ground floor of the property are a big bonus.
A small supermarket is located 3 minutes by car from the accommodation. For real grocery shopping, a bigger supermarket can be found near the city centre of Kralendijk.
To the city centre of Kralendijk it only takes around 10 minutes by car. We always pickup a rental car directly at the airport on the day of our arrival, reservations can be done in advance via the internet. For those who like to join out: we would recommend the restaurants: Cactus Blue, Patagonia, Appetite and Sense. Especially during high season it is necessary to make a reservation at the restaurants, especially when travelling in a big group. The villa is also equipped with a local mobile phone, which enables the visitor to make those reservations via telephone. Internet is also available via wifi in the villa.
The location of the accommodation (oceanfront), the size (number of bedrooms), as well as the perfect service of ‘Paradise Rentals’ enables a relaxing and uncomplicated holiday and made us come back to the island and to the accommodation. We are sure to come back again pretty soon.
Hato is a quiet, private area, only 5 minutes from downtown Kralendijk and close to popular dive sites. This home is on the ocean so you don't need to look further for a perfect private place to snorkel, dive or just to cool off. Nearby there is a drive through ATM, as well as a supermarket, ice cream shop, drug store and great restaurant for pizzas and international dining. Dive resorts where you can arrange your dive gear and tanks are also just a 2 minute drive away.
