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.
Rue and her family are wonderful hosts and this extends to the care they take in providing a cozy home on the island of Bonaire. My family and I had the pleasure of staying at their home in Bonaire in March and had a wonderful time site seeing, snorkeling and diving. Their place is clean and comfortable and centrally located near the village, restaurants, and popular beaches and dive spots. It was a short few block walk to Yellow Submarine, one of the best dive shops on the island. And there is another dive place within the neighborhood that hosts a fantastic dinner every week. The bedrooms were comfy, quiet and cool and we slept like babies. Highly recommended, even by this very discerning New Yorker.
