The ultimate boutique resort on Bonaire, a wonderful holiday experience for visitors looking for a centrally located guesthouse where they can fully unwind. The studio apartments all have their own bathroom and outdoor kitchen with refrigerator. The central pool provides the necessary cooling and the sun beds and palapa offer the comfortable lounge areas for ultimate relaxation.

Casa Calexico is a 'household name' on Bonaire, known of the Dutch Television program 'Ik Vertrek' and very popular among the many annual returning visitors. The guesthouse was expanded in 2010 with 4 studio apartments. In the current situation there are a total of 5 rentable studio apartments with a bathroom and kitchen. The main house offers a further two bedrooms and is the perfect place for the resort managers. The second bedroom of the main house could relatively easily be converted into a rentable studio for an increase in turnover if desired.
The resort was the set for a new Dutch feature film with big (Dutch) names in early 2021. This feature film will be released under the name 'Casa Coco' and will bring fantastic brand awareness to the resort.
