  • 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."

  • Great Island. Great people. Great staff. Great home.

    "My family of 7 stayed in this home for 5 days and 4 nights. It was more than enough room for 6 full-sized people and one miniature. Will is awesome in responding to all communications in a timely matter. He answered all of my questions, put my mind at ease, and reassured me that everything was going to be great. This was our first time staying in a vacation rental, and we plan to do it again. We actually plan to go back to Aruba and stay in this home again. Juan and Mildred were the sweetest people. They ensured we were picked up from the airport, settled in the home, and provided directions to every place I asked. The home has been updated, so the pictures are a bit out of date. It was nice having access to a vehicle, however the mini van definitely needs servicing. The check engine light stayed on, it was a bit hard to steer at times, the air was not consistently cold, the hazard lights blinked every time the side doors were opened, and we got a flat tire. Nevertheless, we didn't have to pay to rent a car, and Juan was expedient in getting the tire fixed. All in all, this is a wonderful place to stay. The price is very reasonable and the location was perfect."

  • This was a happily Ever After

    "This is the second house my family has booked using VBRO, hands-down the BEST. My family hadn't seen each other in a while and what a wonderful paradise to reunite. Richard was amazing and helpful with learning what parts of the island were best suited. Ottis there aren't enough words for how amazing that man was. He truly served our family in the best way. He was so generous with information and helpful."
