Not a condo! Lots of space and privacy! Charming 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom cottage 3 minute walk from Caribbean sea & coral reef. Great location tucked away, yet near the "hotel strip." Big garden with Palm trees and shade trees, and double rinse tanks for dive gear. Just added a 9X12 Palapa (straw hut) to the garden for more living space and privacy. Clothes washer, great security, WI-FI, CAC, BBQ, walk to town. A perfect paradise! Now taking long term and vacation bookings!

Beautiful place, great if you're diving (outdoor sinks, washing line) and comfortable and spacious accommodation. Nice coffee machine. Would come back for sure.

A rental car is a must for the island, to far to walk for groceries but close for shopping and restaurants. If you walk to the water front from the cottage you can swim there, we would walk the waterfront every morning and there were people swimming every day. Plan on bringing a…

Thank you Gayle for your stay at Buttonwood, and for your private feedback which is so helpful. In the notes about the house is a list of things to get at the store, but I will certainly include that tip for later arrivals. I'm on my way to Buttonwood next week from New York. Looking forward to the warm Caribbean sea. Can't wait! Kind Regards, Rue

We stayed in Buttonwood cottage for two weeks with our two sons. We loved the house, which was convenient, spacious, well-equipped and cosy. Both bedrooms had airconditioning and all windows in the house had insect screens. We enjoyed the lovely garden and patio. It was nice to s…

Dear Femke: We are so glad you and your family enjoyed Buttonwood Cottage! We were last there in February, where we made some of the upgrades you enjoyed. We have new art work for the cottage, and can't wait to return to get the new pictures framed and up. And yes, the afternoons in the garden....ahhhhh---so relaxing. I miss it! You and your family are welcome to stay again and enjoy all that Bonaire has to offer, Kind Regards, Rue

We loved our stay. The house was well kept and clean. It was close to downtown restaurants and shops. The only thing we didn't like was the noise at night from dogs and roosters. If you close the shutters and turn on the AC, then it should be fine. Overall, it was a good experie…

After an extra night on the road, due to cancellations of flights with Insel Air (the locals call it Insult Air) and for sure they got that name right, we arrived at the very clean house, which looked just like in the photos. The neighborhood is residential and it felt very safe …

I'm glad to hear that you would come back to Buttonwood Cottage. I think though that we can't control the mosquitoes that were outside, or the weather. I will think about the suggestion of a curtain -- good idea! And of course you had powerful CAC in the bedrooms. We hope that Buttonwood is as advertised, a country place which is about being in nature with a beautiful garden and a very good location. We have always found the kitchen to be practical, and love the gas stove. As for the supplies, I live far away and the maintenance costs on Buttonwood are extremely high, as are the electricity and water and gardening bills. I thought it might be a simple thing to pick them up when you were at the store because otherwise I have a significant surcharge from the manager and my profit margin for the cottage is quite low. I offered to reimburse you. However I will make sure we are stocked now. We really do work very hard at making Buttonwood a great experience and I'm glad you thought the cottage clean and pleasant and enjoyed the garden. Hope you enjoyed the parrots too! Our garden has many native fruit trees to keep them happy. We look forward to another visit from you, Kind Regards, Rue
