Beautiful garden with palm trees; swimming pool, 2x BBQ
Owner is almost always on site for questions etc. But also, if possible, owner shows guests the best off the under water world! (See Youtube channel Jack Polanen)
Upscale / safe area with paved roads! (Some areas on Bonaire have unpaved roads which makes it very dusty in dry season and muddy in wet season.
Although Bonaire is just small, shops, city center, boulevard and tourist accommodation are to far apart to. If you want to fully enjoy your vacation and explore the island, you just need to have wheels!
Our fully grown garden has beautiful palm trees and flowers. This brings in Hummingbirds, Prikichis and other tropical birds. We also have all kinds of Lizards. Iguanas are wise enough to stay out, because of the dogs ;o)
For divers... We shoot under water video and stills. We have a lot of info for divers and especially photo and video enthusiasts. Also we have a lot of spare dive gear, chargers etc. etc.
The most important thing is that all our guests enjoy their vacation. We have some simple rules, which you can find in the booklet in your room.
This was our first trip to Bonaire, and we wholeheartedly recommend Villa Alcyone. We had an absolutely wonderful stay! The accommodations are delightful and very comfortable. We felt at home immediately.
It is a very convenient location, just minutes from the airport and minutes from the water and numerous dive sites. It’s also just down the road from a donkey sanctuary, which we visited and enjoyed very much.
Jack was very generous with his time. He frequently stopped by and made sure we had everything we needed. Even before we arrived on Bonaire, he was helping us schedule our scuba certification classes, and he offered help with our first visit to the grocery store and with rental cars. He is very knowledgeable about Bonaire, and is an avid diver and photographer. We are new divers, and he gave us lots of guidance! He even joined us for a dive, and led us to one of his favorite dive sites.
Daphne happened to be away during our stay, and we are sorry we did not get a chance to meet her. Next time!
Hospitality in top. Fantastische mensen in een heerlijk appartement. Alles is gedaan om ons thuis te laten voelen. Het appartement is compleet en schoon. De terrassen in de tuin zijn perfect. De wijk is rustig en veilig. Op korte afstand van Kralendijk, de zoutpannen, snorkelplaatsen. Een aanrader. Een 10 met een griffel.
Jack and Daphne are extremely conscientious and do their best to make everyone's experience comfortable. This included (as we stayed there during Christmas), small chocolates and other sweets wrapped and placed by our door, and joining for a traditional holiday dinner. They bring significant knowledge about the island, especially when it comes to diving.
Overall, this is a great place to stay! Highly recommend.
We loved it there! The description of the place was very accurate. In fact better than we expected :) The garden is absolutely beautiful. Jack and Daphne are perfect hosts. We even had pick-up and drop-off in the airport by Jack. The apartments are very nicely furnished and we felt at home there straight away.
Jack and Daphne delivered far more than they promised. The large two-bedroom apartment is personally designed and contained far more amenities than mentioned on the site. Jack also took us on an extraordinary night dive, surrounded by huge (and gentle) terapons. Their villa, in a private housing estate south of the airport, offers high security and comfort. With excellent flow-through ventilation, I never even wanted to turn on my A/C. Great kitchen (six-burner gas stove, with oven and broiler). Efficient drying racks. True hi-speed WiFi. Jack directed us to top-quality dive facilities charging much less than the options we found online. Jack and Daphne are living their dream. We were delighted to be part of it!
We hebben het verblijf bij Daphne en Jack als zeer prettig ervaren. Behulpzame gastvrouw en gastheer. De ligging van het huis is prima. Prachtige tuin met mooie bomen en planten. Ze zijn van plan nog het het een en ander aan de accomodaties aan te passen zodat het helemaal top (website hidden) een vijftiental malen Bonaire bezocht te hebben, mogen we nu zeggen dat dit voor ons de beste locatie was.
