What Past Guests Are Saying
Best trip ever!
Villa Bonita is located in a wonderful area of Guanica a short walk to the beach. The accomodations were great clean and comfortable. Barbara met our every need playing most tour director in answering our many questions reagarding where to do and what to see. We spent time in a neighboring town Parguera. Where we took a bio-luminesent bay tour. We went to a wonderful Rum Bar! Ask Barb she can tell you how to get there it was amazing. The boys fished and had a huge catch of Dorado.

Thanks so much for your review!! My MOM is GREAT. She loves PR as much as we do!
We need to get together soon-can't wait to meet you all in person in PA or in PR!!!
Always welcome to our spot! My mom loved having you at the Villa Bonita!
May the SUN SHINE on YOU and keep YOUR HEART WARM!
The best guest house on Puerto Rico
We spend two days in Ensenada (next time will be more) to go dive with Island Scuba. Barbara was really friendly, the room is large and well furnitured. Great view on the see.
There is no problem to wash up wetsuits and all the diving equipment.
For divers definitely the best choice to stay in villa Bonita and go dive on the Wall dive with Island Scuba.

Great Place to Stay
My husband and I stayed in the larger area of this house with 4 other friends. We had a great time. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The manager was extremely helpful and friendly. She knew everything about the area and gave us many great suggestions of where to eat and what to see. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

We loved Playa Bonita!
We were a group of 3 couples traveling together. Playa Bonita was the perfect place for us to stay. It is a tri-level. The bottom level is where Barbara, the manager lives, the top level has a small studio. We stayed on the second level. It had a full kitchen, living room, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a very large outside deck. The bedrooms each had an airconditioner.
Guanica is very small and not a big tourist spot. We loved it because we are divers and there is a great dive company 1 block from the house. There are lots of great places to explore in this area as well. The beach is 1 block away. There is hiking in the dry forest a few miles away, snorkling, kyaking, historic towns to explore, a cute little winery, and beautiful seanic drives.
Barbara was so friendly and helpful. She shared ideas of places to eat, shop, beach spots. She had an ice chest that we could borrow for excurtions, BBQ if we wanted to cook.
The house is not fancy but was clean, comfortable and in a great area if you are not looking for city life and crowds. The property is gated and had plenty of parking area. We wish we had stayed longer and will return here again!

Penny & Crew My husband & I really wish we could have met you all! My mom says you all did it all and made it your own. Thank you so much for your kind words ~ we love the Playa Santa, Guanica area and it is our pleasure to share it with you!! Bonita **Let us know what else we can do for you for your next visit!!
Incredible Hospitality and Value, Exceeded all of our expectatio
Absolutely tremendous!!. One block from three of several tremendous beaches, one block from the fish market, beautiful area for a local neighborhood walk. This area is not your typical all inclusive resort atmosphere, this is pure Puerto Rico including friendly islanders and local cafes/bars. We loved it! Barbara was extremely attentive and guided us impeccably through our every need or request. We explored the Guanica and surrounding region every day and Barbara always directed us to a wonderful new destination. We went fishing with the locals and I have posted a few pictures, there are dozens of scenic pictures I wish I could include. Barbara's Parrot angel is a lovely, entertaining "watchdog" and we thoroughly enjoyed her. Barbara made sure that we had anything and everything that might make our trip more enjoyable. This rental facility is wonderful. If not for the fact that my wife, Kathy and I & Steve and MareMare want to always see new places, Villa Bonita would be our vacation destination over and over again. It could not have been better! Our heartfelt thanks to Barbara. Scott

Thanks Scott & Crew
You all took full advantage of our beautiful spot in paradise and made special moments all your own! My Mom is a fantastic person and we are so lucky to have her look out for and take care of our Villa. I can tell by the smiles on your faces that you enjoyed every moment-my husband and I only wish we were there to share some good times and lots of laughs with you all. We certainly hope to meet you all in the future! Bonita & Jeff
Excellent place for serious scuba divers
My wife and I stayed at Villa Bonita for a week to dive with Island scuba. I highly recommend both Villa Bonita and Island scuba.
We were offered a package deal as scuba divers that made a full week in Guanica affordable. The family who owns Villa Bonita, Barbara, Bonita and Jeff, made us feel very much at home during our stay. They were very accommodating whenever we needed anything (including cheese!) and their check in and check out times are flexible for scuba divers in case you need to squeeze in one last dive before you leave. Villa Bonita is less than a block from the ocean, dive shop and fish market so we enjoyed cooking as much of the fresh and local seafood on the BBQ as possible.
This is a great place to stay if you are interested in scuba diving a wall that compares to Belize or Grand Cayman, in my personal experience, and you would like a nice place to stay. This is not a good place to stay if you are looking for fine dining or nightlife that includes more than the one local bar.
Island scuba is run by Pedro Padilla and his wife, Nayda. They have a fantastic dive shop, they offer good quality rental gear and they will bring out the dive boat in the middle week with only a few divers. If you get the chance, go out on an odd day to try and catch a boat with only 2 or 3 other people. Pedro is also a great photographer and his work is all over the internet. Just type "Pedro Padilla Island scuba" into Google images and see what comes up.
Other than diving, Gillian's Island makes a great day trip and many other cool cities like Playa Joyuda, Cabo Rojo and La Parguera are a short dive away.

What a great pleasure to meet you both!! Thanks for the delicious grilled Catus-just to mention a bit of both your wife & your cuisine talants!
Hope to have you stay with us again-we've discovered more great treasures in our Playa Santa area.
Have a good winter!
110% perfect stay
110% Perfect Stay but too short, next visit I'll plan a longer stay with Villa Bonita.
The owner’s Bonita & Barbara are warm and welcoming. The ground floor 1 bedroom studio was perfect for the solo traveler or may accommodate a couple with 2 children. The studio was outfitted with all the amenities from microwave to cable TV and WiFi. The villa is within walking distance to a beautiful crescent sandy beach and island style bar-restaurants. I’ll definitely be planning a return visit!!
Response from BONITA J STOUDT - 02/20/2012
You'll have to stay a while longer with us! Really nice to talk to you and be able to provide accommodations that worked well with your travel plans.
Thank you so much for your review!
Hope to see you back real soon!
Most relaxing vacation ever!!
Villa Bonita is truely a slice of heaven! The Stoudt family made our stay absolutely perfect. This is the most beautiful place we have ever stayed and it gives you a true taste of Puerto Rico. You can do it all here or just relax and do nothing at all. Perfect for families with relaxing beaches and snorkeling just minutes from your doorstep. We have already begun to plan our next trip!! Thanks again to the Stoudt family!!

Kevin, Shelly & Family
It was a great pleasure to have you visit us at the Villa Bonita! Your family is a great treasure and it was fun showing you some of the sights!! We'll have to book Mr Bret as your personal guide for your next trip with us-looking forward to seeing you all again soon! Bonita
This was my very first time to Puerto Rico and it was amazing all thanks to the Stoudt family. Everything was all included. The beach was just a couple steps away from the house. The house was very neat and tidy. The shore diving was the best and it was right outside the house. The scuba shop to get our gear was only a couple steps away from the house also. The Stoudt family took very good care of me during my stay in this fabulous rental place and Puerto Rico. My next vacation i will be back.
