About us

Debby Rauwers and Marco Vermeulen

After selling Buddy Dive Resort in 2002, founded by her parents Joop and Yvonne Rauwers in 1980, Debby dreamed of starting a small, luxurious guesthouse. Although she moved to Holland in 2002 and started a successful Corporate Event Company, she felt even stronger attached to Bonaire, where she lived almost all of her live. Together with husband Marco Vermeulen they had the chance to renovate her parent’s (already beautiful!) villa into a small, intimate and luxury guesthouse that opened in 2007. A dream came true! Special thanks to her parents Joop and Yvonne Rauwers who always supported in every way and still do!

In 2014 Marco and Debby moved back to Bonaire after they were asked to manage Den Laman and Sand Dollar on Bonaire as well.
