The Garden at The Palms of Bonaire


Amber and Jesse 2019


"The property is nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, but still close to all the dive sites and a short drive to all the downtown shops and restaurants. The hosts are exceptionally helpful and a real asset to your trip. We will book again!"

"There is a pool on site, a palapa area with a grill, and facilities to rinse and hang your scuba gear. There is a pretty well-equipped kitchenette in the studio as well. Everything is in excellent repair and extremely clean! For the price I paid, it was an incredible value. Great quiet spot for a scuba getaway. If you're traveling in a group, I would recommend renting both studios if possible, as they are in a duplex-like arrangement, and it's a much better deal than a hotel."

"I was looking for a quiet place to stay while I was looking for a house on Bonaire and the Palms Of is just that! I extended my stay two times. You can hear the birds whistling in the morning when you wake up. The garden is spacious with enough places to chill and everything is very properly maintained."

"We spent three weeks at the studio Tortuga and had a fantastic time. Located in a quiet area, we felt very safe. The studio was exactly as pictured, very clean and comfortable. The patio/spacious garden offers a beautiful place to relax, especially during the evenings."

"A beautiful and quiet studio in a cozy atmosphere, surrounded by palms in a beautiful garden with a wonderfull little pool. A nice place for divers with extra drying space for your gear. Cathleen and David are great hosts. Always helpful and happy to give tips on where to go out dining. They know the best dive sites!"

"A beautiful, sparkling clean, quiet setting with excellent hosts who have impeccable attention to detail. Less than 10 minutes to the best beaches and restaurants on the island."

"The studio we stayed in is beautiful, comfortable, and perfectly set up for a short or longer stay. There is a well equipped kitchenette, covered front porch area, and plenty of storage and space for rinsing, drying, and organizing gear. And don't be afraid to ask for something if you need or want it - Cathleen is happy to accommodate where she can and if she can't, she'll work with you to figure something out! But most wonderfully (and unexpectedly) the whole place is nestled in a perfect garden of Eden. There are gardens with palms and flowers and places to relax (hammocks, palapas, lounge chairs) and soak in the gorgeousness. You'll see hummingbirds flitting about the flowering bushes, pairs of the endangered native Lora (yellow shouldered parrot) flying across the yard and hanging out in the palms, troupials and bananaquits all over the yard, and every kind of gecko and lizard soaking up sun or munching bugs at night."

"Staying at the Palms of Bonaire is a great joy. Calm, clean and easy going. The apartment is built right on the wind so that you can feel the ocean breeze and don't have to use airco. The hosts are very friendly and helpful and everything is there. When you don't want to stay in a hotel and love a peaceful environment I'd advise you to make a reservation here. I had to work on Bonaire and every time it was a pleasure to return to such a nice place. Thank you Cathleen and David!"
