This was our 4th visit to Bonaire and 4th time staying at HHH! We love staying here and have looked at other places, but we always come back here. Why? The homes are very clean and very comfortable and smoke free! There is a full sized kitchen with large fridge, gas stove and oven and microwave as well as toaster, coffee pot, pans, dishes and cutlery to cook and serve our own meals saving us from eating out every meal. We can be on our own schedule especially being scuba divers - able to sleep in and eat breakfast when we are ready. There is a nice place for cleaning our gear and a drying area too. Nice on demand hot water shower! Nice cold a/c in the bedroom to get a great nights sleep. We can park directly in front of our home which makes loading and unloading gear a breeze! And speaking of breezes, there is a nice patio out front with table, chairs and loungers to enjoy a meal or a glass of wine while taking in the tradewinds to cool down. Lots of visitors - lizards, birds, and donkeys roaming free. HHH is a self-serviced home, but if you stay for a week, about halfway through the week, the cleaning lady will come in and exchange towels and refresh the beds. Nice touch! We arrived during the afternoon for this stay, but in the past, we have arrived around 6am, and Louise has our place all ready for that time, including basic foods in the fridge and cupboard that we would have pre-ordered and have added to our bill. What a nice touch! And did I mention, HHH is very afforadable. Our unit had 2 bedrooms, but since we only needed one, the 2nd one is locked and we are not charged for the use of it. TV and radio available, but who has time for those when there is to be done! Lots of storage shelves for unpacking your suitcases completely. A safe to keep your passports and valuables with a key. There are books to choose from if you didn't bring enough of your own. Lots of plugs to recharge all your batteries and electronics both 110 and 220 style. Free wi-fi with good connection! Louise can also arrange your rental vehicle to pick up upon arrival at the airport! Anything you need - just ask! If it can be done, I'm sure Louise would be happy to help! We love HHH and Louise!!
Clean and affortable, well organized and efficient for divers with cleaning and storing facilities for equipment. Homes come full equiped to cook. Close to dive shops and dive sites. Friendly and laid back atmosphere. Diving packaged prepared in advance by Louise. Been there 5 times with 5 differents dive budies - All Happy, no fuss!
We stayed once. Place was locked,had to get a room at Divi Flamingo. Broke a small juice glass. Charged me $3.00. Emailed owner to tell them after our 10 days. That was 15 years ago and 40 plus trips. Bad customer service and a Very mediocre accommodation. Would not recommend.
Had an enjoyable time diving and stayed at the Happy Holiday Homes. Louise provided us with a nice, clean, roomy unit at a reasonable price and convenient location for shore diving. HHH also had dive tubes for rinsing and cleaning gear and a secure place to hang it. She also provided us with a dive voucher for 10% off at Dive Friends, who also were excellent.
Thank Louise and Kitty for the good friendly reception and the calm place in one of the bungalows. We come back again 2017. The units are good for self cooking, but also near most of a lot of restaurants. You can watch birds and Iguanas next door.
We have stayed at Happy Holiday Homes many times. It is our first choice of places to stay in Bonaire. We had a lovely 10 days this past March. Our bungalow was perfect in every way, clean, quiet, with a fully-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, centrally located, and affordable.
We were able to choose a larger unit (actually intended for more people) at the front so we had a view of the water and lots of space to spread out all our gear. We had everything we needed to cook and relax. The way the unit is laid out we were able to take our diving gear right in without having to trek through the living space thus reducing the amount of sand we tracked in. There was running fresh water and a tub for rinsing and plenty of space to hang our gear in a covered space outside. Next time we go to Bonaire, I won't waste my time looking for a different place. Louise was very responsive to any questions without being intrusive. It was delightful!
Bonaire Happy Holiday Homes has all the ingredients for a wonderful stay on wonderful Bonaire. Clean, comfortable, quarters, a well stocked kitchen, AC for sleeping, rinse tanks for your gear, hooks to hang for drying, safe, secure. Free Wifi on the premises, which was essential for me to stay in touch with work. All rooms have a nice outside sitting area to relax and enjoy the evening and the humming birds, bananaquites, bonaire whiptails, etc. Located in Belnem, just south of the airport, it is convenient to windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, shore diving, Donkey Beach, Bachelor Beach, Tori's Reef, Salt Pier. The owners Mel and Louise, are very helpful with local knowledge and accommodating if you need something extra like an iron and ironing board. Overall, a great place to stay.
I have already written review of Happy Holiday homes based on January 2015 trip. This year, of course we went to the same place and were very surprised. Louise took my first review to the heart, and our blue house had brand new kitchen ! Review at work as it should be ! Can not wait to go there again ! Enjoy!
This was my second time staying at Happy Holiday Homes (HHH). My wife and I stayed at HHH from the 8th to 24th of January 2016. The room was very clean when we arrived and we were greeted by the owner Louise. I love the setup of HHH, parking is right out of your door, and you have a private patio and plenty of room to hang wet scuba gear to dry. The only issue we had was within the first two days we noticed the full size refrigerator was not cooling, we told Louise about it and it was repaired the next day and worked great from then on. Every request we had of Louise was graciously handled. We even had a faux pas (completely my fault) on remaining payment once we arrived, and Louise was the epitome of the phrase "island time" and said not to worry about it and let us remedy the situation once we got home. This was my 10th trip to Bonaire and although I have stayed at other properties multiple times. I told Louise to reserve this same room for me for my next trip. I don't think I will be staying anywhere else. Ever!
