Seasonal (winter) pricing is $125 per day. PLEASE CONTACT ME for DISCOUNT on stays of one week or more in winter (October 1 through June 1). DESCRIPTION: 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage a three minute walk from Bonaire's famed, pristine coral reef. Full service yellow submarine dive shop a few minutes walk. (discount at yellow sub available with rental.) House has glass shutters on all windows and doors for lovely, constant Caribbean breeze from Bonaire's trade winds. All modern conveniences: flat screen TV, powerful WI-FI CAC in bedrooms, instant hot water shower. All new appliances and furniture, excellent beds (can be configured for one large bed, a queen, or 2 twin beds in each room). Rinse tanks for your dive gear on the porch. Washer for your clothes. Parking for your car. Good security. 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. What we love about it the most is the proximity to the sea, the breeze, not having to use a car if we don't feel like it, and the packs of Bonarian parrots (also called Loras) sailing overhead and fussing in the trees at twilight. MARCH 2014 UPDATE: After a cold winter in New York, we are looking forward to coming to Bonaire in April for 2 glorious weeks. My son (13 yrs. old ) and I took up windsurfing last year so we'll continue that, and a friend will be staying who will be photographing kite surfers and trying out scuba diving for the first time. My husband will be sprucing up the garden, BBQ-ing and unwinding.. For me, lots of scuba diving and birdwatching in the park. Can't wait! AUGUST 2013 UPDATE: We are just at the end of 4 weeks on Bonaire in our lovely cottage. We have added many new plantings and palm trees to the garden and done all painting and maintenance to the cottage. We've doubled the Internet speed and added HBO and Cinemax and other channels. Buttonwood is looking great and we will surely be sad to leave!
A charming cottage, and the heart of the town and nightlife a 12 minute walk away.
I won't be on the island, but the house manager will be available. I'll happily answer any questions by email or phone.
The people are very nice, the breeze, the sea, the swimming and snorkeling, scuba, and sailing. The relaxed pace, the natural beauty.
Recommend a car to see all of Bonaire, but there's plenty of activities within walking distance.

Buttonwood cottage is great. It is a 10 minute walk to the main shopping street (and the Italian icecream shop Gio's) and only 3 minutes to the beach where there is great snorkeling and diving. We will definitely stay here again.
Nice and quiet neighborhood! Nice and clean apartment in between locals! Much better than staying in the giant and impersonal tourist hotels. It is walking distance from the sea and restaurants. Bring or buy mosquito repellent, but that recommendation is not specific for Rue's apartment.
Beautiful place, great if you're diving (outdoor sinks, washing line) and comfortable and spacious accommodation. Nice coffee machine. Would come back for sure.
We had a great week in Rue's place. The house is comfortable, plenty of space insite and outsite. A few minutes walk to the beach and perfect diving with Yellow Submarine. The village Kralendijk is 15 minutes walking or , if you do it the Dutch way, you hire a bike and explore whole Bonaire. Some good restaurants like " It rains fishes" and " La Guernica" are nearby. Normaly we booked a hotel if we wanted to go diving but with this experience we will never do that again!
Extra service is Frans, he lives a block away and is a great help when you arrive.
We had a good stay here. Everything is new and clean. And windows can be open without getting musquitos in.
