This is a comfortable home in a quite and scenic location. The remodel/upgrades are well done. Karin was very responsive to questions as we navigated our way through learning to operate the new appliances. Beautiful sunsets every night and a convenient snorkeling site. Bonaire is getting more popular but still a relaxing place to visit.
I came back to Villa Kiki for a two weeks vacation with the family. As usual, everything was perfect: from Karin and her assistance to the house that offered all the comfort possible. It is simply fantastic and the location ...the best on the island. The two daughters and us enjoyed every minute at Villa Kiki: the pool, the deck, the sunsets...it is just a spectacular place to be and spend an unforgettable vacation.
Thank you Karin for all the help: we will come back again!
Fijn huis van alle gemakken voorzien, Op een hele goede plek. De service is in overleg en goed geregeld.
Wij zijn zeker van plan om in de toekomst nog eens terug te komen.
Amazing place. 3 large bedrooms with airco. Incredible views from the house/swimming pool.
Barbecue/dinner with a view on the sea/klein bonaire at a round table which is very cosy. The house has everything you can imagine. You will mainly live outside. Best snorkeling place right in front of the house. We saw turtles every day.
I hope to come back next year!
Villa Kiki is the only place we've ever stayed multiple times. We just spend 2 weeks for the 3rd year in a row and love this "home away from home"! It fits our needs perfectly and having our own dive sites right out front make it that much better. Karin is awesome and so wonderful to work with.
We hebben een fantastische tijd gehad in villa Kiki.
Huis ligt op een prachtige locatie. Hethuis is ook zeer kompleet ingericht. Alles ruimschoots aanwezig. Erg rustig en zo vanaf je terras trap af en zee in en snorkelen maar ☺️.
Ook een zeer persoonlijk en vriendelij onthaal bij aankomst door Karin.
Toen we weg gingen hadden we problemen met onze huurauto maar gelukkig met 1 telefoontje haalde Karin ons uit de brand en bracht ons naar het vliegveld en hebben we onze terugvlucht gelukkig gehaald
Net een heerlijke week gehad met onze kinderen in villa Kiki was boven verwachting vooral de plek met uitzicht over zee en snorkelgebeuren dolfijnen schildpadden inktvissen en nog veel meer gezien zo voor ons huis de zee in ook karin de gastvrouw had bij aankomst de koelkast al gevuld en op dag van vertrek mochten we langer in de villa blijven onze vlucht ging namelijk pas om 2100 uur super ,huur wel auto, pick-up het beste, wegen niet al te best, voor mensen die van snorkelen / duiken houden is dit de beste plek villa zelf ook dik in orde maar dat kan je wel op foto's zien bedankt voor alles
We had an absolutely wonderful time on Bonaire at Villa Kiki. Everything about it was perfect - from the communication with Karin before our stay, her warm welcome at the house, and her responsiveness when we had a question. The house and grounds are just as depicted, clean and inviting. We had five adults including two couples and there was plenty of room for gathering and privacy both inside and out. Perfect layout. We enjoyed the house reef daily, along with the outdoor shower and easy setup for cleaning snorkeling/diving gear. Highly recommend Villa Kiki. Wish I were there now!
We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay at Villa Kiki over Christmas this year! The location, in my opinion, is one of the best on the Island with the Villa located between Andrea I and Andrea II. We are snorkelers, so finding a place where the entry and exit is easy and safe for my 88 year old father was very important and the area directly below Villa Kiki was perfect! We traveled the Island exploring other snorkeling areas but all agreed that the best was right down the steps of Villa Kiki! It is no wonder the dive boats are in and out all day long!
The Villa was clean, comfortable and well stocked. There was plenty of outdoor seating to accommodate sunbathing, lounging, eating, birdwatching...you name it! The pool was cleaned 2x/week while we were there and it was always refreshing and clean! There were plenty of towels..bath and beach, kitchen was well stocked, books to borrow, extra sunscreen and bikes, snorkels, masks, floats, etc. to use if desired. If it was not there..you did not need it!
Karin, the manager, was wonderful! She communicated with us before and during our stay to make sure we did not lack for anything! She decorated the Villa with a small Christmas tree and lights, which was a nice touch as we were there during the holidays. There was a nice welcome bag for us in the bathroom and a bottle of wine, beer and soda in the fridge. I felt very comfortable reaching out to Karin if I needed anything!
We rented our car through Back to Basics, which I would highly recommend! They are a local company and it felt like borrowing your neighbor's car for the holiday! Very relaxed and upfront, and Bas gave us a a few tips on where to snorkel, eat and have fun!
We had a great stay at Villa Kiki - we’ve stayed before and thoroughly enjoy the house the peace and the tranquillity. This is a great place to stay on the island - all the facilities you will ever need - all carefully looked after by Karin.
Many thanks until the next time...!

What a fabulous vacation at Villa Kiki!!! The beautiful home is exactly what the pictures are on the website ..Perfect!!! We enjoyed every evening at sunset lounging on the deck and of course, the wonderful pool overlooking the water. Snorkeling off shore behind the villa is awesome. Some of the best snorkeling on the island. Very clear and loads of fish and we actually saw a few turtles. You will see why all the boats bring snorkelers and divers to this location several times a day. It's just wonderful!! We enjoyed the island and loved exploring all the many snorkel sights everywhere. The best part was coming back to the villa and cooking dinner and eating on the porch. The kitchen has everything you need to dine in like we did each day. The villa was spotless and the air conditioning in the bedrooms was excellent. We give Villa Kiki 10 stars and the best was the caretaker, Karin. She answered every question we had via email and was there to greet us when we arrived. She makes sure your stay at Villa Kiki is the absolute best. We loved her and she went out of her way to make the villa perfect for us and provided a welcome package of goodies to start our vacation. You will love Bonaire and you will especially love Villa Kiki. All you need and more is waiting for you at Villa Kiki....ENJOY!!
For the 3rd time we enjoyed, big time, our stay at Villa Kiki! The view is absolutly great and to sit for sundowner on the deck is unforgetable. The Villa itself is perfect for 4 to 6 people to stay and the table on the porch is a great place to have meals. Not to forget that one of the best dive spots is right before the door.... We will join again!
We had a great time at villa kiki in august. Great views, pool, bbq, snorkling, space, just a perfect place to relax. Karin did a great job with her “welcome” package in the fridge and explaining the house when we arrived and was always available for any questions or additional tips and tricks. We can really recommend this place to anyone!
We really felt at home in this beautifully decorated house. And caretaker Karin was fantastic! This was the fourth house we stayed in on Bonaire but we will definitely come back here the next time we stay on Bonaire.
Villa Kiki is perfectly located between dive sites Andrea I and II......offering great diving, snorkeling and gorgeous sunsets. Also, a stairway leads from the house to the beach, making it very convenient to access the beach for snorkeling or when geared up for diving, yet still very private. The house did not disappoint at all. Well equipped kitchen, a/c, nice furnishings, lovely pool - very comfortable, very inviting and very relaxing. Nice neighborhood too. An abundance of fish life at this location, including sea horse, eel, barracuda, octopus, grouper and hundreds of varieties of fish. The property's caretaker, Karin, is absolutely wonderful to work with and very helpful.
This was not my first visit to Bonaire, and I will be returning to this fabulous little island next year. Future plans will include staying at Villa Kiki, which is a beautiful, comfortable escape and so very relaxing.
Wat een geweldige vakantie hebben wij gehad in deze mooie villa! Van alle gemakken voorzien en zeer smaakvol ingericht. En het uitzicht.....fantastisch! We werden warm ontvangen door onze gastvrouw Karin. En de koelkast was gevuld bij aankomst! Heerlijk buiten kunnen eten bij zonsondergang. Op het terras genieten van de mooie vogels. Snorkelen voor de deur, lekker afkoelen in het zwembad. Bonaire is een fantastisch mooi eiland. We hebben het eiland verkend met een gehuurde pick up, zoals er velen rondrijden. Genoten van het Nationaal park Slagbaai, kayakken door de mangrove, de Donkeyfarm, snorkelen op klein Bonaire, het prachtige Jibe City, Rincon. Bedankt Villa Kiki! Echt een aanrader!!!!
Toplocatie, prachtige villa, schitterend uitzicht, echt een paradijs. Aanrader!!
wonderful place, wonderful private house, wonderful people / friends ;)
we love this island and would come back.
Fantastische villa zeer volledig en persoonlijk ingericht -schoon -goed onderhouden
Prachtig uitzicht op zee en toegang tot zee vanaf huis - veel privacy
Eerste boodschappen al voor ons gedaan !
We hadden een geweldige week in villakiki. Om te beginnen werden we welkom geheten door ca. 20 dolfijnen, springend voorbij zwemmend voor ons terras. Een warmer welkom kun je niet hebben.
Verder hebben we genoten van alle luxe in het huis: goed ingerichte keuken, airco en zwembad en de mooie omgeving. Snorkelen voor de deur: koraal en vele vissen en zo nu en dan een schildpad. Ook Bonaire heeft ons verrast: overal lekker rustig en een mooie natuur. We hebben ons prima vermaakt met :snorkelen, duiken, surfen, kayaken in de mangrove en lekker eten op diversen plekken. Al met al een vakantie om met plezier op terug te kijken. Karin was daarbij een welkome gastvrouw.
Wat een heerlijk huis! Wij brachten met onze 2 kinderen 3 weken door op dit fantastische plekje op Bonaire. Alles klopte. Het huis is geweldig, ziet er prachtig uit en werkelijk alles wat je kan bedenken is aanwezig. Villa Kiki ligt op een rustige plek van het eiland, net buiten Kralendijk aan zee en is smaakvol en gezellig ingericht. Het terras met zwembad en uitzicht onder de palmen door naar de zee en Klein (Bonaire) is als op een ansichtkaart. Daarbij de fraaiste snorkelplekken precies voor de deur en de hartelijkheid, gezelligheid en geweldige steun en toeverlaat terplekke van Karin ...... We willen nu al terug. Bonaire, Villa Kiki en Karin heel hartelijk bedankt voor jullie bijdrage aan een geweldige vakantie!
Villa kiki is a wonderful house that fulfilled all our needs. Fully equiped both in kitchen, bathrooms an garden. The beach below the house felt like our private beach and was a perfect snorkeling place, we even saw a sea turtel here when just snorkeling!
The pool and the house was very clean and everything worked perfect. The contact person Karin was a wonderful person that gave us many good tips on everything on the island.
Thank you all for making our holiday just perfect!

We stayed at the Villa Kiki for one week of diving. With two couples, the villa was perfect for all our needs. I have stayed in many VRBO and HomeAway properties and this was as well equipped as any condo I have ever been in. Clean and well managed, Karin was there any time we had a question or problem. The Villa is really well set up with the private pool and excellent kitchen. The reef right off your doorstep is excellent and out of the 12 dives we took that week, I think 4 were right there. Awesome week of diving and great place to stay, would highly recommend as long as you make sure not to take the weeks that I want to go back and use it myself...;-)
We stayed 2 wonderful weeks at Villa Kiki and enjoyed beautiful sunsets, some of the best snorkeling right in front of the house, and to notch accommodations. Karin helped us with minor issues and gave us great suggestions on where to eat. We will definitely book here again!
We've been coming to Bonaire for many years and have stayed in many different beautiful places but Villa Kiki has without doubt surpassed all! Fresh, clean and tidy and with all the good quality facilities you will ever need for a fabulous stay on the island.
Many thanks to Karin for all the arrangements, the patience and good humour!
Thanks - We'll be back!

We had a great stay in Bonaire in Vila Kiki. We love Bonaire because off the nature, the weather, the beautiful sea and the pure live.
Vila Kiki is on a perfect spot. The view is great from the house and the big terrace on the sea. With a little stair you are immediately on the beach and you can walk in the warm sea water. Also this is a perfect spot for divers and for snorkelling.
The house has three tall bedrooms with air-conditioning, in this temperature you are living outside but inside there is enough space.
We want to come defiantly back too this wonderful place.
Wow! Villa Kiki was everything we hoped it would be, and more. We're one of those families that does an excessive amount of research to find the 'perfect' villa, but even with lots of research there's always some question whether the villa will be 'as advertised'. We're happy to report that Villa Kiki was everything we could have hoped for. Everything is up-to-date and in great shape, from the beds and linens to the kitchen appliances to the fast and reliable wi-fi, the good water pressure, the comfortable furnishings,... you get the idea. We loved being just steps away from the Andea I and Andrea II dive/snorkel sites, which are accessed from stairs at the corner of the deck. The views were amazing -one of our favorite things to do was sit in the lounge chairs in the morning and again at night, just taking in the scenery and the breezes. In the evening the tasteful lighting in the pool and the palm trees added to the ambiance. To top it all off, the hostess, Karin, was an absolute treasure. Since we were arriving on the island after the stores closed she offered to buy our groceries for us, and she was there at the villa to greet us and show us around, despite the late hour. Throughout the week she continued to be available to provide suggestions and answer questions. We've stayed at villas throughout the Caribbean, and have never been more pleased with our total villa experience.
We enjoyed Villa Kiki for one week, Feb. 4-11. We were 3 couples, in our 60s. The villa is very comfortable, well decorated, and larger than it looks in the photos. The view is fantastic, the neighbors are very quiet, the location is ideal. The place is very clean (some ants in the kitchen can't be avoided) and everything worked well. The WiFi is reliable. There is plenty of hot water, the bathrooms are a good size and there are lots of towels. The beds and pillows are all comfortable. The kitchen is a good size and well equipped, we had dinner at home every night. The main supermarkets are all in one area just south of town, very easy to get to, and there is a Chinese supermarket 5 minutes south that is great. We did not bother to go anywhere else for snorkeling, the best site is at your back door! Fantastic amounts of fish to enjoy, its a different show every day! The pool is a good size for swimming or cooling off, and the outdoor shower is very handy. We basically lived on the patio except for sleeping! Karin was always available to answer questions and was very helpful with getting us settled in. There is a land line for local calls. We did a half day of deep sea fishing, but sadly, there were no fish to catch. And not much fish to buy on the island. Regarding InselAir - beware. Our CUR-BON flights were horribly delayed. 3 hours going, 7 hours on the trip back, and we missed our flights home, had to rebook and stay over in Curacao. I will never fly them again. Be sure to drive north and south, there are lots of interesting places to see. It was a perfect week at a perfect house, and we would love to all return to this fabulous setting.
Wow, the second time was as good as the first, and that is saying mucho! Such a beautiful place, so well furnished, and right on the spectacular turquoise water at Andrea II dive site. Superb snorkeling, and diving. Karin was so helpful. Flights cancelled, but she was able to assist us. We're coming back.
Just returned from a wonderful stay at Villa Kiki. Karin was the best. After dealing with snow, delayed flights, she was there to meet us at the Villa. She is so upbeat and made our tiring trip very relaxing.
Villa Kiki is fabulous. The accommodations are beautiful and tasteful. The villa has everything you need to make you trip perfect. The outdoor area is spectacular, from the pool to the awesome setting just above Andrea 1. Karin is so helpful and the perfect hostess.
Bonaire is an amazing island. This was our 11th trip. Thanks Villa Kiki for helping make our vacation complete!
We will return!
The accommodations at Villa Kiki were unbelievable. Karin met us at the house and went over everything and offered great recommendations! The house had all the amenities of home- except of course- the view and the access to the most beautiful reef on the island! No one can argue that that you are on the best reef around when the dive boats are on your reef in the morning and snorkel boat excursions every afternoon! We saw tons of reef fish, turtles, stingrays, scorpion fish, lionfish, eels, and an octopus - all snorkeling right off the back porch!!! Easy access into the water made it so nice! The pool offered a nice place to cool off in the late afternoon after a full day of snorkeling.
Great rental for family or friends that want to be away from town, and have EASY access to diving and snorkeling from their house!
We LOVED Villa Kiki and look forward to our next visit!
By this note, we would like to thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at your property at Bonaire. After a very busy period, it was truly amazing to enjoy the beautiful environment and the perfect house. Everything was fine, therefore, we spent many hours at the house, tanning next to the sea or swimming in the pool.
Every day it was a blessing to look at the beautiful sunset and get that relaxed feeling. Due to this time, our battery is now recharged and we have created new energy for the coming time.
Many thanks again and it was really special and a privilege for us to spend time in your beautiful residence and nice surroundings!
In May, 2010, we spent ten days at Villa Kiki, our first time on a holiday without the kids. And we did indeed enjoy this combination!
Villa Kiki on lovely Bonaire is a beautiful oceanfront villa with a view of which you can only dream! Everything you might ever need during your holiday is available in the villa.
We also enjoyed the great restaurants Bonaire offers, the clear, blue sea, and the friendly locals. Yes, Villa Kiki made our stay on Bonaire PERFECT! We will return to Bonaire and, yes, we will return to Villa Kiki! Thanks you!
We had a delightful time on Bonaire and loved the beautifully furnished Villa Kiki overlooking Andrea I and II. Thanks so much for setting our grandson up with a crib, high chair, bike seat, and toys. He loved going for bike rides with his mom and managed to squeak one in almost every day. Thanks Joyce for checking in with us frequently to make sure all was ok. We loved our meals overlooking the pool, swimming at the reefs in front of the Villa, outside showers and waking up to the beautiful scenery all around us.
We will have wonderful memories to carry us through the chilly winter with hopes of being at Villa Kiki again some day.
We had a phenomenal experience at Villa Kiki! Starting with the close attention you gave us from the beginning--thanks!
The Villa was everything promised and more. Pool and Andrea reefs out front were amazing. Loved the kitchen, bathrooms, bedroom...everything! And yes, it was our honeymoon at Villa Kiki!! Overall we couldn't be happier and have already recommended Bonaire and Villa Kiki to friends. Thanks again!
We had a wonderful ten days and a terrific holiday on sunny Bonaire. Villa Kiki is a beautiful place, and probably the best spot on Bonaire. The porch and pool area are a paradise, and offer offer the perfect view of the blue ocean. It felt as though we were on our own, but the colorful birds and large lizards kept us friendly company. From the front garden of the villa, one can start diving or snorkeling and admire all the beautiful fishes.
We also enjoyed many BBQs, while watching the romantic sunset. We did rent a scooter to explore the island--we loved the Goto Lake area in the north and all the donkeys, flamingos, and parrots we met on our trips! Bonaire offers you a mixture of relaxation and beautiful nature. The caretakers of the villa made us feel at home from the first minute. If you're looking for a perfect holiday spot on Bonaire, go for Villa Kiki! We are sure going to miss it! Thanks, Villa Kiki!
Unfortunately our holiday is over once again, but what a beautiful villa on a perfect spot in which to relax during our holiday. We really enjoyed everything. Thanks for all the information in advance and all your help!
I should have written sooner, but I've been trying to come up with the right superlatives to describe how wonderful Villa Kiki was for us. I'm at a loss for words. It was perfect in every way. Thank you for letting us experience it.
Everything about our vacation was magical. Really. I'm telling people it was the best vacation of my life and I've had some pretty good vacations over the years, but I'm going to take this to mean that this next decade of my life that we were celebrating is going to be a good one! Met a woman at the Donkey Sanctuary who said her husband had just done some painting at Villa Kiki. Indeed everything was crisp and beautiful.
I hope we'll be in touch again sometime because if we return to Bonaire, Villa Kiki will be my choice. Thank you again for your help and patience with all our questions early on. Best Regards.
“We just wanted to let you know that we had an amazing time during our honeymoon at Villa Kiki; the accommodations were outstanding. The week went by way too fast, of course! We are back to work now and dreaming of our return. Who knows, maybe someday. Our regards to Joyce she was very polite and helpful. Thanks!”
