This is a nice place to stay. Jarl and Cheistine are very helpfull with all information you need. Close to town, nice place to rest in their tropical garden, nice pool - just perfect to cool down after trips on island.

We booked BnBBonaire due to its budget price, proximity to the ocean and quick response from Jarl and Christine. We had originally booked 8 nights but were so happy with the location, comfortable accommodation and the personal level of service offered that we ended up staying another week.

We stayed in both the studio and deluxe rooms and found both to be everything we needed. We loved the studio but were even happier with the deluxe room due to its beautiful terrace with outdoor cooking area, hammocks and beautiful view!

We decided to book a truck rental through their local contact (Back to Basics) instead of going through the popular rental options. The truck rental was convenient and we were happy with the car being delivered to us! We would not hesitate to suggest this rental options to others!

The location is a 20 minute walk into town and close to several dive shops (we loved Gooodive). Would not hesitate to recommend this BnB!

Stayed at BnBBonaire for 4 nights while getting my Advanced Open Water Certification next door.

I stayed in the Basic Studio which has everything you need and is located right next to the Palada and the pool, not in the main house which means you have your privacy. I did not cook at all though so I cannot comment on that part.

Jarl and Christine arranged for my breakfast last minute. It was so good I had it three days in a row! Muesli, yogurt, juice, bread, butter and jam, cheese, ham, salami, eggs, cake, and of course tea and coffee.

They were also very nice to arrange a scooter rental for me and for the rental company to come and pick me up.

The palada and pool area is so beautiful and quiet. Be aware that the pool is in the shade starting ~noon.

Also if you want to walk to the city center, it will take you approx 15min - not long but if you take into account the heat, you do feel it! But there are a few eating spots within walking distance (10min).

All in all, the BnB is beautiful, the hosts are very helpful and nice, so I highly recommend it. Thanks Jarl and Christine!

We visited Bonaire for 3 days of diving, and stayed in the basic room at BnBBonaire. Christine was excellent to work with, from the first email enquiry through multiple pre-arrival questions, check-in, recommendations throughout the stay, and check-out. She pre-arranged a car rental and dive package for us with operators that ended up being excellent. The room rate was excellent, and even the basic room included everything we needed (kitchenette, wardrobe, etc). Little touches like the outside palapa, clean pool, and shared clothesline really made our stay more comfortable. The location is also excellent, only about a 15-minute walk from downtown and also close to Ededn Resort with Wannadive and Spice Restaurant. We will definitely be back to Bonaire and will stay here again!
