Your own private paradise within paradise”

Things I like
A perfect paradise within paradise! As a solo traveller the accommodation was perfect for my needs. Very spacious for 1 person. It was clean and the outdoor kitchen, hammock and little swimming pool were ideal for what I needed. A short walk from a main supermarket and the main town/water front I would highly recommend to anyone thinking about booking

Great stay at a beautiful place!!”

Things I like
Nice house, very clean. With AC and a very nice pool. Well maintained garden. Very nice and helpful owners. Apartments are fully equipped. Transfer to and from the airport was included in the price. Host Antonio took his time to give us a lot of sightseeing opportunities on the island. Thanks for the excellent stay at your property Helen and Antonio. Hop to see you again soon.

Things I like
Antonio and Helen were very courteous. Antonio even took time out of his day to drive us around the main strip for a tour, informing us of the best restaurants, boat trips etc. I particularly loved the solid mattress because soft mattresses that sink really hurt my back. We loved being able to hang up our wet clothes after a day in the sea on the clothesline they made for guests. I even used an extra pair of flippers they have for guests to use and that was awesome! We loved taking a dip in the pool in the evening. And we especially loved the location. Although there is a lot of traffic around, it was super convenient being able to walk/drive a few minutes to the main strip and enjoy all kinds of restaurants and other amenities like supermarkets and a smoothy shop a stones throw away. It's just perfect!
Things I don’t like
I don't believe I saw a bottle cap opener for beer lol. I was gonna leave one behind and totally forgot.

Things I like
we had a great stay at the barefoot Bonaire with the bestest hosts! Thank you so much Helen and Antonio :). Antonio picked us up from the airport and gave us a little sightseeing tour with eating recommendations trough the city. The apartment itself and the garden are even prettier than on the Fotos. Everything was lovely decorated, clean and just perfect. There are mosquito nets on every window, so you also can enjoy the wind inside. My favorite spot: the private hammock in front of your apartment :) Cheers, Vy & Wowa

Amazing Place - you will have a hard time leaving”

Things I like
The hosts are super friendly and helpful and will make sure you have a great experience in Bonaire. The soft wind you get along the cabin is very enjoyable and allows to enjoy the nice outdoor kitchen and dining area. The Lodge is rather spacious and comfortable. They were super uncomplicated handling our delay in arrival due to struggles at amsterdam airport. You get everything you need in this place :)
Things I don’t like
The burners in the kitchen could be a bit hotter :) Maybe an additional small window in the bedroom would allow for the same refreshing wind that you get in the living room ... but there is bascially nothing to complain here ;)
