“Perfect guesthouse in Bonaire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

We spent one week in April at Casa Calexico and really enjoyed it. Audrey and Joop are friendly and will ensure that you will feel at home immediately. We also really enjoyed the snorkelling trip to Klein Bonaire with them.

Guest room/bunkies were very homey, modern and clean. Everyone is friendly and it is well located for a walk to the beach (loosely said as there really isn't beaches in Bonaire), restaurants, car rental. Central location to all dive sites, close to fantastic grocery stores. geared for divers with your own gear locker and wash area outside. Nice sized pool. Attention to detail everywhere. We found restaurants to be expensive for Canadians - we ate dinner out 3 times but getting groceries and cooking our own meals worked out great. BBQ provided. Small kitchen area was perfectly supplied with needed utinsels/cookware. Hammock is priceless.
Being picked up and delivered to/from airport nice touch. Especially after in most cases after long travel day. Thank you for being great hosts!

Another glorious two weeks. Our second year staying at Casa Calexico and couldn't have been happier. Audrey and Joop have indeed created a "home away from home" atmosphere. With everything you need for a comfortable caribbean getaway. Clean room with a great bed, large modern bathroom, small kitchen, private patio with table and chairs, inviting pool with a large deck, rinse tanks and lockers for dive gear and plenty of hammocks for that afternoon nap. Leave your rental truck parked, Kralendijk is a short walk along the ocean where you can watch the sunset on your way to dinner. We have met some awsome people from all over the world by staying here. Thanks from KCMO, See ya next year.

Room Tip: If you are on the tall side ask Audrey about the "long bed" room. :)

On our fifth trip to Bonaire we selected Casa Calexico based on Trip Advisor reviews and their great website. We were welcomed by Audrey and Joop from the moment of our arrival to our departure. Even the trip to and from the airport is a part of the Casa Calexico experience in their awesome vintage Chevy pickup truck. Our room was comfortable - it offered all we needed for our stay. The porch with table and hammock was a great spot to enjoy our meals, plan our dives in the morning and reflect on them in the afternoon. If you desire privacy - no problem, but if you enjoy meeting other guests, the atmosphere at Casa Calexico encourages it. What else - the pool and deck surrounding it are inviting. There's an outdoor shower by the pool. But make no mistake, the bathrooms in each room are spacious with plenty of hot water and great towels! Casa Calexico is an ideal location, easy walking distance to the Kralendijk waterfront, to supermarkets and a quick drive to dive sites. The rooms are kept very clean. There are rinse sinks and private lockers for your dive gear. There's also wifi! All in all, Joop and Audrey have created a sweet spot! They are genuine in their desire to be sure that you enjoy your Bonaire experience.

Wow, first impressions sure count when you have endured a long flight from the uk, Audrey greeted us with big warm smiles and promises of a great stay, of which was fullfilled from day one. The guesthouse which is run by her & hubby Joop,is set back from the road with 3 big parking spaces at the front for your `dive truck`this is ideal, no carting your kit too far .Concealed by palms and green plants the rooms are just lovely, so much care to detail with sweet smelling sheets,comfortable beds, hamocks and useful touches such as lights by the bed.The kitchen is small with two rings, a fridge and sink, oh yes and a kettle, but really its all we needed & as its expensive to eat out managed to cook in most evenings.The little supermarket is just across the road as is the car hire rental...once you have your car( which audrey can organize if you wish) you can go to the huge new supermarket 5mins away great for more choice. The hospitality that they showed us doesn`t happen here in UK guesthouses ! ..perhaps it`s a Dutch thing....or maybe its the proudness they both feel in wanting to share their lovely dream with you. If you decide to visit Bonaire, casa calexico is simply special

Room Tip: all great rooms, if you have a tall body ask for the tall room, it was a tip from a previous reviewe...
