I barely write reviews but I enjoyed my stay in my last two visits to Bonaire and would love to go back again so I thought I owe the owner/host this review.

This property is amazing with beautiful sturdy constructions in a quiet cul de sac. The master bedroom is huge and comfy. The décor in the house is very well thought of with taste. Beautiful pool with nice patio furniture etc. along with huge patio area. Cannot help taking some photos of them myself :)

It's conveniently located to beaches and points of interests. Less than two minutes drive to the beautiful, tranquil Bachelor's Beach! See my pictures of the beach.

And the supermarket is very good over there. Also the ocean-front market with all the fruits stuff – and especially those drooling passion fruits. I really liked some of the photos I did – there are some good shots coming out of both trips. Putting some nice words for Ron & Debbie too because they prepared the house so well for us and they are just living around the corner: Super friendly, and prompt in responding to our request. How much more convenient can it get!

Really enjoyed photo taking and snorkeling in Bonaire. And I benefit from the ocean weather – my allergy is totally gone after the trip, well at least for a week or two.

“wow… an amazing villa!”

My g/f and I stayed at Casa Calida over Christmas 2015 and I must say that we had an amazing time! I had heard a lot of people say that Bonaire is their favourite Caribbean island and now I can see why … such a laid-back lifestyle, great weather, beautiful beaches, clear water, everyone is friendly… and not a traffic light in sight!
As for Casa Calida itself… wow… an amazing villa! The pictures don’t do it justice. All the rooms are huge … and the master bedroom is cavernous! We found everything there that we needed for an enjoyable stay. We ate most of our meals on the outside dining table overlooking the pool and backyard. The parrots and iguanas both kept us company and provided a colorful spectacle.
The villa’s managers are situated just a few minutes away, so the couple of times when we had an issue they were able to help out very quickly.
The famous windsurfing at Lac Bay is only about ten minutes drive and great snorkeling at Bachelor’s Beach is even closer. The main town of Kralendijk is about fifteen minutes - a number of nice restaurants … and the Van den Tweel supermarket was a real ‘find’. We had a very nice day excursion to Klein Bonaire which is a short boat ride from the town. We also recommend the trip around the National Park (situated in the north of the island) however you need a 4WD rental as the roads are quite severe.
We will definitely be back again!

We were very happy with our choice!
booked two houses, near to each other ( big group of people) Sabalpalm is a great location, not far away from airport, in direction to Sorobon beach. ( windsurf )

Everything better then expected.

The Manager of the house (Debby) lives just around the corner and we also received a mobile phone so we can connect her if we have any questions or need some assistance.

We will go there again !
