Trip Report Renting a villa in Bonaire

Just wanted to share our recent experience with renting a villa on Bonaire. We rented a place called Cas Chogogo from Bonaire Oceanfront Villas and had a miserable time. Although the villa was advertised as having a/c in the bedrooms, neither of them worked properly. The living room was like a sauna, it was so hot (even with the windows open). And Bonaire Oceanfront Villas provided absolutely no customer service. We ended up having to stay somewhere else and just losing all that money.

We learned the hard way that regular travel insurance does not cover rental properties, so it is definitely worth the extra cost to get Renter's Insurance if you're considering renting a villa. Just don't rent through Bonaire Oceanfront Villas as they will say anything to make a sale then abandon you once they've received payment.

If you are going to rent a villa, also have a back up plan. We didn't know where any of the hotels on the island were, this being our first trip. Driving around Bonaire at 5pm on a Saturday w/o a place to stay is not a great way to start a vacation. Luckily for us, I remembered reading about Harbour Village and we found someone to give us directions. When we got to HV and told them our tale of woe with the villa, the staff really went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience at HV.
