Nestled in amongst the pool, you will find a quiet, serene opportunity to enjoy your holiday on the island. We face ocean side (west), so depending upon the wind blowing a few palm trees, the ocean is sometimes visible; as well as a bird's eye view of Kralendijk and the beautiful back country is always there. ...moreless

                                    We were so glad to find Villa Makoshi Penthouse! The location is quiet and secure. It is not far from town, dive sites and shopping. There were 4 of us staying there and the villa is so roomy that we never felt crowded. For divers, the set up is perfect. It was nice to have the shower, rinse tank, and equipment hanging areas available. We especially appreciated the fast wifi and printer as we had to do some work while we were there. The people we met in the complex out by the pool were all so nice and very helpful with suggestions as to where to eat and dive. The management company, particularly Inge, was very attentive to anything we needed. We would certainly stay there again!

                                    We stayed in the upper apartment of Villa Makoshi for a week of diving and it was great. The apartment is clean, exactly as shown in the pictures and included all the kitchen and bathroom stuff we needed. The AC worked well. The dive gear can safely be hung to dry on the small balcony overnight (which can only be accessed from within the apartment, hangers provided), the wash basins and outdoor shower downstairs were convenient to rinse everything. The apartment worked well for two couples, each room had their own full bathroom. Both the owners and the people from the home care company were very friendly, prompt, and helpful. The location is really close to several dive shops (we dive with Wannadive). We'll be back.

                                    Owner response: Thank you for the kind words. It's one thing to have a beautiful and fully equipped villa, but more importantly you need great property managers acting as your host to ensure you, our guests, are comfortable. This is what’s important to us. Glad your stay was memorable. Dianne and Doug

                                    My buddy & I spent a week at the Makoshi over Labor Day and had a great time. The villa is clean, modern and very comfortable. Service is terrific—if you have an issue; it’s taken care of quickly. Cooking is easy and we prepared several dinners as well as all breakfasts/lunches. It’s very quiet and peaceful and the pool is a great place to spend time (when you’re not in the ocean). I’ll definitely stay at Villa Makoshi the next time I visit Bonaire.

                                    We stayed at Upper Makoshi for seven nights. It had enough space for 5 adults to move about freely. The 2 1/2 baths made getting out the door and back again a breeze. The air conditioning units and fans did the trick whenever we needed to employ them. The proximity to town is perfect. There are two small markets very close by with all we needed. The 20% discount through Dive Friends served us well. The villa is situated in a nicely arranged setting with a pool and well-placed palm trees. A great place to stay!

                                    The upper villa did not feel like a rental villa, but it felt like home. It was very open but had a home atmosphere. There was a balcony to dry dive gear wear no one could access it, other then from the inside the home. The bedrooms are very big with lots and lots of closet space and a safe in each room. Each bedroom has is own large private bathroom. All the cooking supplies were there and even a slow cooker which was the best, because we loaded up the slow cooker and left for the day to come home to supper already done. They even had a cot, washing machine and portable hanging clothes drier that could be set outside to hang wet towels and bathing suits. The big flat screen TV/DVD combo was already wired so you could plug in your camera or computer review pictures or use the Wi-Fi to email friends and family.. Not only was there A/C in the bedrooms but also in the main room, so each room could be kept at a separate temp. I also like the fact that the villa is gated with a fence around it which made it feel really safe and secure. Everything from groceries to scuba supplies (tanks and gear) and diving was close by.

                                    Recommended for: Age 55+, girls getaway, romantic getaway, adventure seekers, families with young children, sightseeing, families with teenagers.

                                    We had a wonderful week staying at Villa Makoshi. The location is very convenient to everything and the villa is very well appointed. My son and I enjoyed swimming in the pool daily, which brings me to my one suggestion of furnishing beach towels for use at the pool. The shore diving was fantastic, as always. I would not hesitate to stay at Villa Makoshi again in the future.

                                    We had a wonderful week staying at Villa Makoshi. Conviently located near to town. Central between the north & south dive sites, made it super easy to pop back for surface intervals /lunches on the covered patio. The villa is comfortably appointed with everything you would need. WiFi ,Grill, secure outside patio for gear drying, rinse tanks! The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms modern & big. The local contact there to meet us at the airport & was readily available throughout our stay. You would not be disappointed with Villa Makoshi as your home base for Bonaire's fanstastic shore diving!

                                    I had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Makoshi this past April 2010. I had such a fabulous holiday. The Villa Makoshi is truly the perfect home away from home. It was very clean and comfortable with all the amenities you need. It was so nice to have a kitchen, bar-b-que, washing machine, and a rinse station for your gear. The bedrooms are huge and comfortable with air conditioning and plenty of storage space plus each room has it's own huge bathroom. I really liked staying on the upper level. It seemed a little more private and secure. The pool is really nice and a great place to hang out and relax when you are not diving. Villa Makoshi is also in the perfect location - close to dive sites, banking, grocery shopping, and downtown. I am hoping to make Bonaire an annual holiday, and I would love to stay at the Villa Makoshi again.

                                  Year Purchased: 2008

                                  About the owner: A common theme of owners is that we all fell in love with the island, the life style and culture. Our community of villas was dedicated to Caribbean culture, so before the ground work had even started; we spoke for the Villa Makoshi Penthouse. Since that day we continue to meet and maintain new friends from places abroad. Upon leaving Bonaire, we now say we have left home and arrived back in Canada. Both Dianne and I hope you enjoy your stay in our home in Bonaire.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Hato:
                                  Our villa is towards the north end of Kralendijk, called Hato. The ocean is just across the street and we are close enough to walk or bike downtown or you can find dive shops, restaurants and retail stores just minutes away as well. A Spa and Gym is right next door. The airport is south of us about 10 minutes by car.

                                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                                  The vaulted ceilings, the front balcony swing, fully air conditioned villa, the security of the second level are a few benefits, but most of all is all the mosquitoes stay at ground level, very few come to the second level.
