The space
Charming 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom single standing cottage with huge tropical garden, very near the sea. Fully renovated, all modern conveniences surrounded by large, gorgeous, green tropical garden with 9X12 Palapa, a few minutes walk from the sea. The Palapa has a tile floor and pitch roof of palm leaves, perfect for dining, reading, or just relaxing! We now have 3 Manila Palms, 3 Foxtail Palms, 8 Coco Palms, 10 Buttonwoods, 1 Calabash, 1 Flamboyant, 2 Shady Ladies (Black Olives), 2 Palu Santus, 2 Sea Grapes, 1 Spanish Lime, 2 Moringas, 1 Guava and a Cactus garden. Solar lights in the garden, new stereo and microwave and Vertisol blinds to the living room sliding to cool the cottage. Buttonwood sleeps 4 people very comfortably. Chic and bright, breezy and sunny. GREAT SECURITY, with in room safe and special steel and glass shutters on windows and doors. We have never had a break in. Buttonwood is an ECO-FRIENDLY house, using 80% grey water in the garden. Screens on all windows and sliding doors, (some rentals don't have them), to keep out mosquitoes. Constant Caribbean breeze from Bonaire's trade winds keep the house cool, bedrooms have air conditioners. Inside you will feel like you are outside, which is it's charm. All modern conveniences: flat screen TV, powerful WI-FI inside and outside, CAC in bedrooms, instant hot water shower. All new appliances and furniture, excellent new beds (can be configured for one large bed, a queen, or 2 twin beds in each room). Fully outfitted kitchen with full coffee and tea set up, and gas stove. Rinse tanks for your dive gear on the porch. Washer for your clothes. Parking for your car. Rural neighborhood, friendly people and a great location, (a ten minute drive from Flamingo airport). Kralendijk's restaurants, nightlife and shops a 10 minute walk away. Washington Slagbaii park a 15 minute drive away. What we love about it the most is the location, the proximity to the sea, the breeze, the birds and the packs of Bonarian parrots and parakeets sailing overhead in the trees at twilight. We spend a lot of time at Eden Beach, Sorobon beach windsurfing, diving, snorkeling. Harbour Village resort, a two minute drive from the cottage, has a lovely (fee) beach for snorkeling, sunning, reading under the palm trees, excellent restaurant and full spa. Eden Beach, a two minute drive away, is great for drinks and casual dining by the water. They sometimes have live bands on weekends. Then there are our usual favorite restaurants, bars, and shopping a ten minute walk away in Kralendijk. Dive Friends Bonaire is about a two minute drive from the cottage, has an additional six locations on the island. Discount with Dive Friends is available when renting Buttonwood Cottage.

This is a real neighborhood, living among Bonaireans and other vacationers and snowbirds. The people are very nice, the breeze, the sea, the swimming and snorkeling, scuba, and sailing are all close at hand. The relaxed pace, the natural beauty are wonderful. It is not a resort, and is priced accordingly. Resort areas like Harbour Village are very nearby and easily accessible.
