About Dianne & Doug

Our first visit we all fell in love with the island; the lifestyle and culture. Our community of villas was dedicated to Caribbean culture, so before the groundwork 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.

Dianne & Doug purchased this villa in 2008

Why Dianne & Doug chose Hato

Our villa is towards the north end of Kralendijk, called Hato. The ocean and public beach area is just across the street and we are close enough to walk or bike downtown. Dive shops, restaurants and retail stores are just minutes away. A spa and gym is right next door, banks, groceries are a short distance away. The airport is south of us about 10 minutes by car.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Villa Makoshi

  • 4 of 5

My husband and i had the pleasure of staying at the Villa Makoshi, upper level for 3 & a half weeks this past January. The pictures given on the net are exactly what we got, we loved it and would definitely consider going back. My husband loved the shore diving, i loved the weather and the wild donkeys and the restaurants we tried, especially Capriccio and At Sea were surprisingly good and decently priced. The only real drawback was that there was no ocean view, and you definitely need to rent a vehicle in order to get around the island. All in all our stay was extremely pleasant, the owners were very responsive and the onsite management, especially Inge were great, we also enjoyed the services of Mary for housekeeping weekly. We hope to get the chance to return one day Dave and Becky Kitchener Ontario Canada

Perfect home base for diving on Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Villa Makoshi on our first trip to Bonaire in October 2015. The condo was just as advertised. The owners (Dianne and Doug) were very responsive before our visit, and the on-island management team was very helpful as well.

The condo complex is conveniently located to many dive sites, several Dive Friends Bonaire locations, and a few excellent restaurants. A short 10 minute drive to the airport, downtown, grocery store, etc.

The condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay, and was reasonably priced.

Bottom line, Villa Makoshi is a great find. The best endorsement I can give is that we are planning a trip back to Bonaire next year, and will be planning on staying here again.

Come check out Bonaire and the tremendous shore diving that it has to offer. It is truly a unique experience.

Awesome Time, Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd time staying at a Perla Boneriano villa, making it our 2nd time at Villa Makoshi. It's a great villa, decorated to make you feel at home. It has everything you need, and if you also dive, there's a big sink to rinse gear and a drying area with heavy duty hangers. The location is ideal, within walking distance of one of the major dive shops and some restaurants. There wasn't much down time with all there is to do and do we did… mostly what we've done before, but this year we added some additional dives and 2 night snorkels. We love to "eat-in" to take advantage of the outdoor patio which is sheltered from the intense winds. Our favorite snorkeling spot is in the national park, which is becoming quite popular. Our trips have now become a tradition. So we will be back!

Wonderful Villa

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time at Villa Mikoshi and again, it has been a fabulous place to base our dive, snorkel, and windsurfing vacation. The villa is full of amenities and the deck is a great place to enjoy breakfast among the palm fronds. The pool is a definite plus, esp at the end of a day adventuring. The location gives easy access to all parts of the island. The owners, Doug and Diane are very responsive. The local management has also been attentive to any needs that arose during out stay.
