About Mark & Margreet
We, Mark and Margreet, fell in love with Bonaire 7 years ago, returning almost every year to the island. When we are at home in Amsterdam we love to share this fantastic place with visitors to Bonaire who would like to experience the true island living.
Mark & Margreet purchased this Cottage in 2016
Why Mark & Margreet chose Kralendijk
Last year we discovered Kas Mai in the most beautiful and pristine location on Bonaire, Finca Verde, fell in love all over again and decided to buy our home away from home ! Bonaire is a wonderfull place because of it's quiet and peacefull atmosphere, friendly people and the avarage temperatures of 82˚F (28˚C) year round.

Great location but need screens - would not stay again
It was hard to honestly review this home, on the one hand, it is a really great location, very quiet with lots of birds, lizards and donkeys. On the other hand it is actually a one bedroom (not two as listed) with a bunk bed in the area outside of the bedroom. In reality this would not be an issue except that there in no glass and no screens in the windows and patio doors on the main floor so there are lots of mosquitos that come in at night. In the bedroom there is air conditioning and mosquito netting on the bed so not too much of an issue. But in for the bunk bed there is no air and no netting so my daughter was bitten all night every night. This is a good place for a couple but not if you need two beds.
On the plus side when we arrived there was beer, wine and eggs in the fridge and the kitchen is well stocked with spices etc. so great hosts just need screens.
I rated it as 3 stars because of the location, but we would not stay again due to the sleeping arrangements and mosquitos.
Wonderful, comfortable house in beautiful quiet location.
We stayed at Kas Mai for 3 weeks in January/February 2018 and will definitely be going back. Prior to our stay communication from Mark was excellent with lots of information. On arrival, we were met by Nathalie who lives next door and during our stay Nathalie was always on hand if needed and very friendly and helpful. A lovely touch was the fridge stocked with essentials and we could enjoy a glass of wine on the veranda after a long days travel! The private location is peaceful and beautiful but only a few minutes from town. The house is spacious, comfortable and well equipped and really felt like a home from home for us. Highly recommended!
My husband and I rented this wonderful place for a week and had a great time. Walter was very accommodating as we were having an extremely hard time with lost luggage issues. It was a spacious, clean, and very well maintained place situated just outside of town in the middle a unique forest. Thanks once again for all of your help.
A perfect condo on bonaire
My wife and I went to Bonaire for two weeks. We cant say enough about Marji and her great place. We had a blast and will certainly rent from her again when we return. Thanks again..
Me and my wife visited Bonaire for snorkeling mostly. We liked the villa and the area. It's located far from the road in a friendly Dutch community. The only thing that bothered me a lot was the noise from the neighboring house (which was very close to ours). Specifically the owner of the house loves to whistle to music pretty loudly. And he's really good at it - it's just that high-pitch sounds annoy me easily especially where I hoped not to have them. But after about 8/9 PM everything was always quiet.
The owner of our villa was very helpful. He picked us up and dropped off at the airport. We rented his car as well. The car has "been there" but it has done just fine for the price. (I would fix the inside light though - it could be important when looking at the map in the dark).
If you have little children, you can't leave them alone on the porch - it's high and has no sidings.
Hi John, Thank you for your stay at Kas Mai. About the neighbor, he is a happy and cheerful guy, whish everybody was that happy.
Thanks again, Walter
We rented this romantic place with our family (two boys, 1y and 2,5y old) for almost 6 weeks and had a fantastic time, the villa is nicely situated to the wind so we didn't need to make any use of the air conditioning. Both the neighbors and the other people living near were very friendly and we were several times invited for diner or BBQ during our stay. The owners have many connections and ideas of beautiful diving locations, horse riding, lounge bar and restaurants. Our children were very happy with all the toys they could borrow from the owners children. The only improvement would be a dishwasher. We loved the stars-view out there, and a very positive thing was, due to the nice wind, we didn't see or feel any mosquito's. (which was horrible at our previous vacation in Belnem) Next time we go back to Bonaire we will try to rent this place again.
