An outdoor rinse station & shower are conveniently located within steps of a small side patio & back door making rinsing, drying, and storing your gear easy. Comfortable patio furniture and a BBQ awaits you after a full day of diving. Bedrooms are furnished with full closets, dressers, and single beds. A wash machine is available for your use as well, making longer term visits easy.

The Neighborhood: The villa is located in a small, quiet resort that is gated with electric gates at the entrance. Across the street are several resorts & dive shops including 'Bonaire Dive & Adventure' and 'Buddy Dive'. There are several restaurants/lounges located within the resorts. Next door is a gym that offers various fitness programs and massage. Also next door is the MCB Bank which is one of the main banks on the island & has a bank machine. Across the street is a spa that offers massage, pedicure, etc. Across the street is a small convenience/liquor store and an ice-cream parlor. The ocean is across the street and accessible via the several dive shops mentioned above. A quiet, sandy beach is a 5 minute waIk. It is about a 15-minute walk to downtown or a 2-minute drive where you'll find grocery stores, lots of restaurants, and shopping. The airport is about a 12-minute drive. The popular shore diving sites extend from one end of the island to the other, and we are centrally located among them

Why Bonaire: After visiting many popular Caribbean destinations, we visited Bonaire after hearing about the spectacular diving. Since that first visit, we've gone nowhere else! Not only is the diving second to none, the island is very different than other popular vacation destinations. When you arrive, you feel like you're visiting your second home. The island is laid back, quiet, safe, and just feels like home from the moment you arrive. We've brought many friends with us to Bonaire over the years, and most have returned to the island because they too fell in the love with Bonaire.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About the owner: After visiting many popular Caribbean destinations, we visited Bonaire after hearing about the spectacular diving. Since that first visit, we've gone nowhere else! Not only is the diving second to none, the island is very different than other popular vacation destinations. When you arrive, you feel like you're visiting your second home. The island is laid back, quiet, safe, and just feels like home from the moment you arrive. We've brought many friends with us to Bonaire over the years, and most have returned to the island because they too fell in the love with Bonaire.

                          Why the Owner Chose Hato:
                          While visiting Bonaire several times, we were able to stay on different parts of the island and experience different neighborhoods. We chose this area because of its proximity to the main town, Kralendijk. It's within a minute's drive or a quick walk of the main shopping area. The airport is less than a 5 minute drive. We're also located directly across the street from several large resorts making access to dive tanks & restaurants/bars quick and easy. And most importantly, we're located in the middle of all the great dive sites. So whether you head south or north, you're going to find the best diving & snorkeling in the Caribbean.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Relax on the covered patio only steps from the pool. Easily load and unload your dive gear when parked right next to the side entrance and the rinse station. Hang your gear to dry outside in the breeze and then bring inside at night for maximum security. Recharge your camera and light batteries easily with our recharge station.
