“The only disadvantage is that you will hate the day that you have to leave”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014 via mobile

It's hard to add anything to all other outstanding reviews.

We loved the place and the owners from the moment we walked in.
The guest rooms are very nicely decorated, well maintained and clean - comfortable beds and a spacious bathroom.

The facilities for rinsing scuba equipment and lockers for stashing it all away are really a big plus.
Ow and don't underestimate the importance of the pool. After a day of diving, nothing beats a dip in sweet water with a Gin&Tonic, or a beer, listening to some Rock & Roll (Rock & Roll upon request only).

We had a wonderful stay of 3 weeks.
We normally don't visit a place twice, but if we ever return to Bonaire we will definitely stay with Joop and Audrey again.

The minute you walk in there they, Joop & Audrey, make you feel at home, a place you know, a place you have been. They place is small, 5 apartments, all beautiful and tastefull decorated. A small pool & hammock place make it all complete. The prices are very good also.

We made a reservation in Casa Calexico based on a recommendation by a nice couple we met on our trip in the Caribbean but we were still positively surprised. The whole courtyard is really beautiful with a small pool and sunbeds and other places to relax. Our room was not very big but it was really nice and had everything a traveller can hope for. On the porch there is all you need to prepare breakfast, lunch etc. In August Audrey was taking care of the guests by herself and she did an amazing job. She was very kind and helped us in many ways during our 5-day stay in Bonaire. We have never experienced that kind of hospitality anywhere. The place is in a walking distance from the center of Kralendijk but the location of Casa Calexico is quiet and peaceful. Definitely recommendable.

My husband and I really enjoyed our stay at Casa Calexico. Audrey was wonderful- from the beginning to the end. There was great communication before our trip and Audrey even drove us to the airport at departure. I loved the room with kitchenette, the pool area, and the dive/snorkel lockers provided. The location was an easy walk to shops, restaurants, and even some snorkel spots. I would definitely recommend this accommodation and would certainly return myself.

Room Tip: From what I could tell, there are no bad rooms!

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights last week and it was definitely hard to leave. The room was immaculate, the fellow guests respectful and quiet, and Audrey was amazing. Joop took us to the airport at the end of our stay, and was wonderful as well. The mosquitos were bad, due to the rain they had recently, but the room was bug free so sleeping was very peaceful. It's close enough to town to walk to restaurants but having a car should be on the agenda to travel the island. It's a wonderful place to stay and they did an outstanding job in making us feel welcome.

Room Tip: We had the end room across from the pool and it was very private and quiet.

Although surprised by family at the airport Joop took our suitcases to bring them to the guesthouse. Stayed there for 2 weeks and had the best time. Joop went to Holland but Audrey managed it all by herself! And still had all the time to talk to us to give information. The quit place, the swimmingpool, the beds, it all was great and made it a super stay. Restaurants are nearby and the walk to Kralendijk took us only 10 min.
If we go back to Bonaire we have no reason to stay somewhere else.

My compliments and we will certainly return.
