  • Our climate is very appealing, with an average temperature of 80 degrees. The sun shines EVERY day
  • Our wild donkeys are gentle and friendly
  • We love our marine resources, and protecting them is the law on Bonaire. We're recognized as being the leader in the Caribbean for preservation of all our coastal waters
  • Our capital is Kralendijk (that's pronounced 'Crawl-en-dike'), on the west coast, just south of mid-island
  • You'll see the Dutch colonial influence in our homes and public buildings; it's part of our history
  • There's a complete selection of shops, boutiques, galleries, and dining spots

"Happy Holidays Homes is the best place to stay while on Bonaire. This was our second trip to the island, and we prefer HHH because it is quiet, immaculate and most comfortable. The landscaping is beautiful which offers privacy from the unit next to you, not to mention the lovely birds that sing. It definitely caters to scuba divers and windsurfers with their outdoor cleanup area, clothes lines and locked closet for your equipment. Also, the kitchen is a blessing. We went grocery shopping for breakfast and lunch and out for dinner to various excellent restaurants. You can make breakfast at your leisure, go for a dive, back for a relaxing lunch and then take off for an afternoon dive. Louise arranged a rental truck for us at a very reasonable rate which was waiting for us at the airport. HHH is a five minute drive from the Flamingo Airport which was a plus after the long flight. Louise, Kitty and Mel are there to answer any questions and have always taken great care of us. We will definitely be back. Thanks!"

"We stayed at HHH in May 2005 during our first trip to Bonaire. The website doesn't do justice to the peace and quiet, cleanliness, convenience and hospitality that will bring us back to HHH during our next Bonaire trip. The bungalows are especially set up for divers, were very comfortable and clean, and everything worked. Louise got us great rates on diving and rental car and both her and Mel were very helpful to us first time visitors. Thanks Mel and Louise for our best vacation ever, we look very forward to coming back!"

"Mel, Louise and Kitty offer one of the nicest places to stay in Bonaire. So nice that I have stayed there for 13 years in a row. They are wonderful people and are like family to us. As they say, very nice accommodations, clean, safe and close to everything, except the park on the far end of the island. If you are looking for a place to stay, look no further, this is the best. BTW they have a lot of fellow windsurfers stay there too."

"We've been staying at HHH for many years, so guess that should tell you a few things. Louise, Kitty and Mel are wonderful people, always friendly and extremely helpful in any circumstance. Louise will even find a doctor for you in case you might have broken your foot! Of all our years here at HHH, it's always in top notch condition, never run down, always CLEAN from the inside of the apartments to the outside patios. We're headed back again in 2006 and will be at HHH once again. There's also a plus when you get to meet wonderful neighbors and gain new friends from all over the world. Now that I've told you all the good stuff about HHH, we would like to keep it a secret so we will always have a place to stay when we're in Bonaire."

"Our first visit to Bonaire (returning from Galapagos) and a wonderful place, great people and fantastic snorkelling. Our 5 year old daughter really learnt to snorkel here, so easy, safe and interesting. HHH is well set up for families and the apartments are clean and well equipped. Car rental is easy (and necessary) and we all loved the whole experience. Thoroughly recommend Louise and HHH."

"This was our second visit to Bonaire but the first time staying at HHH. We LOVED IT! It is a great place with everything you need to make you feel like you are home, a true home away from home. It is so set up for scuba divers. Please give it a try when you are making your plans to travel to Bonaire, you will not be disappointed."
