ABOUT KAS HAMAKA - BONAIRE
Bon bini na Bonaire! Welcome to Bonaire!
Like many others we had a dream about starting a new life on a tropical island. For us this dream came through in February 2010 when we moved to the small island of Bonaire to build a small but intimate guesthouse
Casa-Calexico, where guests will have “a home away from home” feeling.
We have been living in here on Bonaire since February 2010 and Casa-Calexico has become a great success.

In 2014 plans began to form about a new guesthouse. A friend bought an old traditional Antillean house on the boulevard that needed renovation. Together we came up with some ideas and Kas Hamaka was born.
But let me first introduce ourselves: my husband (Joop) and me (Audrey) met each other in 1990 and got married in 2000. After I finished my study of Language and Literature science at the university of Tilburg we started travelling all over the world and soon after that we decided to start a guesthouse one day, somewhere where the sun always shines!
At that time he was working in construction but in 2002 he became a firefighter. He worked at the fire department of the city of Tilburg with great pleasure until we came to Bonaire.
In 2000 we decided to get married in Borneo. On the 1st of September we got married in Kuching (Sarawak) and we got infected with the travel bug! The next 10 years we travelled a lot to Asia, Africa, the Pacific and the Caribbean. During our travels we started fantasizing about starting are own little hotel, resort, b&b or guesthouse. We were thinking about Mexico or Costa-Rica, but also about Thailand or the Philippines.
It turns out we fell in love with a beautiful wooden house on the small but very friendly island of Bonaire.
Kas Hamaka is an easy few minuts walk from Kralendijk. Audrey is a fantastic host, she loves to share all the informasjon she has. Very solution oriented and always available. Rent a car from them, cheaper then other places on Bonaire and flexible when you return the car. Very clean place!
Kas Hamaka has it all: perfect location, relaxing atmosphere, delicate apartments, warm and welcoming hosts. Like other reviews says; maybe we should keep Kas Hamaka like a secrete, to make sure it’s room for us next time!?
Every year in May we come back to Kas Hamaka. For us it is the perfect place to stay.
We stayed at apartment Prikichi, in the yellow colonial building, with a large terrace, view on the street and sea. Staying in this apartment make you feel part of the local life. Close to the center and best snorkeling just in front of the house :)
In 2015 a friend came with a great opportunity to renovate an old Antilean fishermen’s house and built 3 extra apartments. So in 2016 we opened the doors of a this new amazing oceanfront guesthouse Kas Hamaka. We hope to share this gorgeous place with visitors form all over the world and are looking forward to welcome you!
