Waar paradijs op Bonaire

4 April 2019 | Marielle (NL)

We werden heel hartelijk ontvangen en op gehaald van de airport door Dianne. Die ons van alles vertelde over de villa en de omgeving. Wij verbleven 2 weken op Bon Rivato Villa, de enige villa met een dakterras op het park van Countyard Village, met prachtig uitzicht over het naast gelegen park met zeer veel soorten vogels. Collibries in de tuin, heerlijk windje dat continue aanwezig is. Met een geweldig zwembad in je eigen tuin en veel privacy. In de villa is alles aanwezig. Heerlijke bedden. Alle kamers zijn voorzien van raamschutters die voor een verkoeling zorgen. De eigenaar is een waar kunstenaar, het huis hangt vol prachtige schilderijen van Bonaire. De villa ligt op loop afstand van Kralendijk en Coco beach, naast het park is ook een kleine chinese supermarkt aanwezig. Een aanrader!

We zaten in villa Bon Rivato. Een fantastische villa die van alle gemakken voorzien is. Keuken met alles er op en er aan, je eigen zwembad en dat alles in het heerlijk rustig gelegen Courtyard Village. Mooi onderhouden tuin rondom de villa.

Wonderful retreat

9 January 2019 | Peter Bodonyi PB (Cleveland OH USA) (NL)

The property is as advertised. Stayed 8 nights. Located in a private gated community less than a minute drive off main road (Bulevard Gob. N. Debrot). 1 minute from Harbor Village Marina / dive shops and 3 minutes from downtown Kralendijk. Home is well appointed with high quality tables / chairs (teak) artwork and kitchen amenities. Nice swimming pool for a quick cool down. Bedrooms have efficient air conditioning; remainder of house is well ventilated with screened louver windows and high speed quite fans. Of all the properties inside Courtyard Village; this property has the best manicured grounds with a gardener who stopped by 2x week to maintain. Our family of 4 thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would stay again; however no property is perfect and there were a few short comings. We felt that the mattresses and pillows were uncomfortable and extra bedding was lacking. It would have been nice to have beach towels and a quality ice chest (cooler) available (even if a deposit was required) for day trips to Slagbaai and Lac Cai. Other than that, hard to find anything to complain about. Also, the caretaker Diannne was a pleasure to deal with as well. This was our 6th trip to Bonaire albeit it has been 20 years since our last visit. The island has changed quite a bit both for the better and for the worse. Reefs aren't what they once were, but still enjoyable. The island isn't as sleepy as it once was...but at least now you can find basic to gourmet dining options now....even after 9pm which wasn't the case years ago. Bonaire will always be special to us. STINAPA / government is doing their best to manage holding on to ecological preservation against expected economic growth. We hope that they continue to manage the parks and Klien....as those pristine places are becoming less and less common.

 

Thank you for your response, the pillows have been replaced and toppers are now available for the beds.

Perfecte locatie

6 January 2019 | Anoniem (NL)

Het huis was geweldig, netjes verzorgd en compleet ingericht. De tuin was helemaal super! Als je met zn vijven komt, is het binnen in kamer/keuken wel wat krap. Natuurlijk ben je op Bonaire meestal buiten, maar gezien de muggenplaag hebben wij toch ook s avonds binnen gezeten. Het zwembad was ook erg goed, water goede temperatuur en goede ligbedden.

Er is een vloerventilator op het terras geplaatst, muggen hebben een hekel aan wind!

Map & surrounding area

Kralendijk

Kralendijk is the capital of the Dutch island of Bonaire, which until 2010 was part of the Netherlands Antilles.

With 18.500 inhabitants  it also was the largest town on the island. The name is derived from the coral reef present there and has been used since about 1840. The locals call the city also Playa, meaning beach.

It is a small, quiet town with lots of pastel-coloured buildings. The center of the city consists of a boulevard (Kaya Craane) and a shopping street (Kaya Grandi). In front off the promenade are yachts visiting Bonaire anchor. Fort Orange is situated on the south side and built in the 17th century. It was built in defence of Bonaire. On the north side of the fort is the old (yellow) governor's house, were now the island council is located, and were the customs has their office. The city also features a marina and a football stadium. There is a romance pavilion used as a fruit market.
