What makes this apartment unique

With a dive-shop next door, you can dive out at front at a fabulouse

dive location without ever leaving the property. Also a great location for night dives. Enjoy the outside shower after the dive to rinse off. The dive boat is leaving from the neighbours deck. Gorgeous view from the sundeck on Klein Bonaire, Kralendijk and Washington slagbaai park..

My "Happy" Place

  • 5 of 5

This was one of many annual visits we've made to Casa Iguana. We love the fact that we can go right into the water to snorkel without walking through sand. We love the view, the cleanliness of the house and, of course, the helpfulness of the Ottens'. It has a complete kitchen with new appliances and the sunsets are wonderful!

Exactly as pictured

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a wonderful week at Casa Iguana. The apartment is exactly as pictured. The view is amazing and the snorkeling right off the back is very good. The location was convenient for everything we wanted to do. I would highly recommend it for people who like to snorkel or dive. Also, although we didn't experience any problems on the island, they have a safe and a locked room to secure items. They also have outside locked storage which we used to leave our luggage after check out since we had late flights. We loved Bonaire!

PARADISE ON BONAIRE

  • 5 of 5

Casa Iguana blew me away! Such a beautiful home! The apartment is outside of the busy area but still convenient to activities and commerce. The view was spectacular and the diving right behind the apartment was great. The rooms were relaxing and comfortable and the outside deck facing the water was priceless. The manager, Mariette, checked on us and made sure we knew all the ends and outs of the island. She even left a cellphone with her number should we need anything.

The Belmar dive shop is next door which makes getting tanks extremely easy for shore diving. The price is comparable and they have a special for 1 week diving, unlimited tanks. I believe the convenience factor out weighs any discount elsewhere. Everyone in the shop was so helpful and nice. I had a problem with my dive regulator and they took the time to help me out.

The restaurants on Bonaire are outstanding! I did not read any reviews about the food on Bonaire, but we were never disappointed.

The people on Bonaire are so nice and never seemed put-out with silly tourist questions. Everyone made you feel so welcome to their island.

We did get a little lost getting to the apartment upon arrival. The directions were spot-on from the owners, but it probably had more to do with the 4 people in the truck trying to give directions! We arrived after dark and you can get turned around pretty easy. Once I turned my phone's map on, we arrived quickly. The next morning when we went driving around, it was a bit embarrassing how easy the drive should have been. All I can say is try to limit the back-seat drivers input, if possible!

We had the most relaxing vacation here at Casa Iguana and we are already planning our next visit.

Heaven..

  • 5 of 5

Casa Iguana left us speechless for days. I cannot even begin to relay how much It exceeded our expectations. We knew it was going to be very nice just given the location, but the photos don't do it justice, if you can imagine that. What you feel when you arrive and walk out to the deck is just instant euphoria. The crystal blue water and sunsets are unbelievable. We watched the sunset every night and each night was better than the last. The villa is beautifully decorated and the beds are very comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed along with various spices and condiments. Ron and Joyce were also very accommodating for us but we did not have the pleasure of meeting in person. Mariette met us on arrival and was just a wonderful, helpful person. She made sure we were happy and had everything we needed. Although the weather was hotter than average, we did not have any problem with the A/C only being in the bedrooms. The breeze was great and the entire back wall of sliding glass doors can be opened. We just didn't want to leave. We even named the reef in 'our' backyard and marked it (Sunset Reef) with a yellow stone. Diving the reef from the steps was easy and there was just so much life from entry to exit.

We also used Tropical Divers for our tank rentals. They are the only shop with steel, din tanks. They were just super nice and very knowledgeable about every dive site. If you go, tell them Diana and Roger will be back soon! There is also a shop right next door at the Belnam resort but we are partial to steel and our gear is set up for din. The resort is quiet and is basically a set of condos so it posed no privacy threat. It was just the two of us so we were very glad for that. There is also a clean dive locker with lock and huge rinse tanks, along with a shower outside which was great. I can't think of anything that could have been set up better. It was just perfect. It is also in a very safe, upscale location. There is a newer grocery store that is worth finding vs. the warehouse types we saw many of. The name escapes me but everything was extremely fresh and priced reasonably. The reef is already calling...We cannot wait to come back!!

Your own private reef...so to speak.

  • 5 of 5

Casa Iguana is an amazing place. We stayed downstairs and it was even better than the pictures. Out front to the left of the house there is storm wreckage from Hurricane Omar and now its become an artificial reef for over 30 different species... I lost count after 30. Its not as pretty as Klein Bonaire... just sandy bottom mostly, but WOW! to just climb down the ladder and swim in your own personal aquarium was AWESOME! Ron was a very nice host and took care of us when we couldnt get our stored emails for instructions to enter the house. He was extremely helpful with questions I had setting up the trip. Cooking most meals at home (aka Casa Iguana) every night was pretty easy (as we brought our 7 and 11 year olds with us and with Dutch cuisine... -but know we love the Dutch people- its on par with the English) lots of spices and good selection of pans in the kitchen- check it out before going to the grocery. We travel alot internationally and Bonaire is one of the first places I'm planning to go back again and soon. When I do Ill be staying at Casa Iguana, no question! Great jumping off the deck (one of the highlights for the kids and the husband) but no railing for little guys so Id say 5-7 and up depending upon your kids ability to follow directions:-)

Wunderschön gelegenes, geräumiges Feriendomizil

  • 5 of 5

Die Bewertung bezieht sich auf die untere von zwei Wohneinheiten in diesem Haus.

Die Casa Iguana machte gleich zu Beginn unseres Aufenthaltes ihrem Namen alle Ehre, denn ein großer Leguan nutzte gemeinsam mit uns die sehr großzügige Terrasse, um sich zu sonnen. Es gibt viele Leguane auf der ganzen Insel und leider auch viele Mücken, zumindest in dieser Jahreszeit. Deshalb ist das Haus überall mit Mückengittern ausgestattet.

Überhaupt ist das Haus sehr gut ausgestattet. Für die beiden geräumigen Schlafzimmer gibt es eine Klimaanlage und jeweils ein eigenes, ebenfalls sehr geräumiges Badezimmer. Zusätzlich gibt es noch eine Gästetoilette. Die Küche ist komplett ausgestattet, besonders nützlich fanden wir die im Kühlschrank integrierte Eismaschine. Der weitläufige, geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnraum bietet einen großen Esstisch und eine sehr schöne Sitzecke mit Blick aufs Meer. Diese habe wir allerdings kaum genutzt weil wir natürlich meistens auf der Terrasse saßen.

Letztere bietet viel Platz und verfügt über einen großen Esstisch und etliche Liegen. Außerdem stehen ein gemauerter Grill und eine Süßwasserdusche zur Verfügung. Seitlich am Haus befinden sich noch zwei Wasserbecken zur Reinigung von Tauchausrüstung und eine abschließbare Holzhütte, um diese aufzubewahren und zu trocknen.

Man kann von der Terrasse über eine Leiter direkt ins Meer. Normalerweise (Ostwind) ist das Wasser sehr ruhig und klar und der Einstieg problemlos möglich. Wir hatten einmal ein wenig rauhe Bedingungen mit etwas Wellengang, was den Ein- und Ausstieg zu einer eher sportlichen Angelegenheit machte. Es gibt keinerlei Zaun oder Gitter zum Wasser hin, weshalb die Terrasse für Kleinkinder nicht geeignet ist.

Der sehr freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter steht einem mit Rat und Tat zur Seite, hat viele gute Tipps für den Urlaub generell und das Tauchen insbesondere. Wenn man bei Ihm wohnt bekommt man auch Rabatte bei Tauchläden und einer Autovermietung.

Insgesamt war die Casa Iguana für uns als Familie mit zwei fast erwachsenen Kindern ein ideales Feriendomizil.
