In the private grounds of the lodge we had a 2-story former stables to ourselves. At breakfast, we could watch the hummingbirds, afterwards we would feed the pigs and have a stroll through the grounds watching birds, butterflies and iguanas in the cactuses. As the lodge is located close to Kralendijk, all the diving/snorkling spots and the National park are close by. The village of Kralendijk being just 10-15 minutes by car.
If you like, you can prepare your own meals, there is a fully fitted kitchen and a nice table with a great view. The owner is taking great care of his property, keeping away the goats and mules that roam the country and eat up everything that grows except for the cactuses. The lodge uses only solar power, and since there is almost always a strong wind on Bonaire, your lodge is airconditioned by nature! Our kids simply loved the place, the animals, the outside shower (there is one inside too), their own room, the lookout, driving the unpaved road in the back of the pick-up truck, everything.
