  • Everthing I expected and more...

    "The best thing about this condo is the location. The best reef on the island is right in front of the resort. This is also one of the friendliest resorts I've been to. We made plenty of friends and attended an informal "happy hour" on the ocean front most evenings. The accommodations were just as they were presented on VRBO and the kitchen was well appointed. We spent many peaceful evenings in the screen-in lanai that faces the ocean. I would definitely go back!"

  • Very enjoyable stay at Villa Chikutu

    "This was our first trip to Bonaire and our first experience booking our own lodging through VRBO versus staying at a resort. The accommodations were exactly as advertised. We would definitely recommend Villa Chikitu as a comfortable place to stay on the island. *We appreciated the safety of the small, gated community (not that we felt unsafe anywhere on the island). *Even with some of the other villas occupied while we were there, it was very quiet and relaxing. *Roy, the property manager met us at the airport right after we picked up our bags and drove us the short way to the villa. He even provided us with a cell phone so that we could stay in touch with him when we needed anything. *Everything was clean and housekeeping came twice during the week. *The location is great. Walking distance to the beach and a Dive Friends dive shop location (across the street), and restaurants. Ilsa at the dive shop was indispensable in helping us to plan great diving experiences all week. Very close drive to downtown shopping and restaurants. Easy drive to North dive sites, slightly longer South. *So convenient to drive up to rinse tank/shower/gear locker. *Communication with owner, Dee, was always promptly responded to and she was most helpful in providing information prior to our trip. *Air conditioning and wifi worked perfectly. Comments/suggestions: *There were lots of gnats and mosquitos at night and even with good bug repellant they were annoying enough to keep us from enjoying the patio. We will likely choose a place with a screened porch next time as I enjoy sitting outside in the evening after a day of diving. It was also rather warm on the porch during the day (it was August after all) so a ceiling fan would have made it more comfortable. *The BBQ grill is not of good quality and the owners require you to let the coals cool 48 hours before disposing of them, so we used it less than we anticipated. *We rented a truck from Roy, but after some investigation determined that his rate was quite a bit higher than the standard rental car companies. He did however bring us a replacement truck right away when the battery died in the first one. *The one time we took a shower early in the day, there was not as much hot water as in the afternoon/evening, so just plan accordingly. *The bathrooms are modern and updated. The decor in other parts of the villa could use equivalent updating. However, all was comfortable and there is enough seating."

  • The perfect location and amenities for a group of divers!

    "There are not enough good things that I can say about this house, location, amenities, and property manager/owner. The location is fantastic. The house is incredible nice with many upgrades and thoughtful touches throughout. It is nice that everyone has their own space and bathroom. Outdoor dining/seating areas are perfection. We travelled with our 5 month old, there was a group of 9 of us all total, they had a great set up for the baby as well----crib and high chair---very nice. Seriously I have NOTHING negative to say.....it all far exceeded any of my expectations. Lamber and Jacqueline were so responsive and kind---we will be back!"

  • Excellent Condo - well maintained and very responsive owner

    "We rented the condo for a week and found it to meet all of our needs. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans, and everything else one needs to do their own cooking. The bathroom is modern and very clean. The studio condo has plenty of room for two people. The staff and housekeeping were attentive as well as jovial. Facing west sitting out on the sea wall watching sunsets were nice as were the early mornings with the resident iguanas. There was a nice breeze so we never used the AC except twice in the evening when it was too noisy outside sleep due to the Kitemanera event at Coco Beach (some 700 meters away!!). The owner is very responsive to emails and wants to make sure everything is right for your stay. For those diving we use Dive Friends and had good luck with their facilities. The staff is friendly and helpful. We did the usual shore diving so we can not comment on their boat diving. We did do a couple of night dives on Bari Reef using the steps from the Sand Dollar. Good fund especially with UV lights."
