                              About: 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 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 brand new spa and gym is right next door. The airport is south of us about 10 minutes by car.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Our resort is a gated community, bordered by a cactus fence around the complex. Our deck overlooks the pool and lush garden area that is encompassed by stone. 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.
