Santa Barbara villa description

Our dream was to create our second home as a haven away from our busy lives, on the pristine and beautiful island of Bonaire. Offering light, privacy and a warm comforting feeling to our friends and guests... Our villa will make you want to take a deep breath and relax.

We chose to locate Salentein - named after our favorite white wine - at the end of a small 'cul-the sac' path in the affluent Sabadeco area of Bonaire. This private and fully oceanfront location is known to be one of the World's most beautiful DIVING spots. Accessible directly from your terrace... yet, only a short drive to the lively Caribbean village of Kralendijk and its many restaurants and lovely shops.

When you enter the villa overlooking the beautiful tropical garden you will immediately be amazed by its open-air living space, which provides a truly spectacular 180 view of the turquoise ocean, the island of Klein Bonaire and the Goto Mountains.

From here, reclined in one of the many soft loungers, you will probably always remember watching the dolphins passing by on any beautiful morning, or having a chilled glass of wine overlooking the breathtaking Caribbean sunset. Its unique rounded porch offers a large shaded area.

To create feeling of light and airiness - we so much desired - every part of our home is built to catch the cool Caribbean breeze. With soft colored matt marble floors, shuttered windows and ceiling fans, that provide for a wonderful cool flow in this warm tropical gem.

In the left wing of the house you will find the impressive Master Bedroom with a truly unique all-glass double shower, high-beamed ceilings and walk-in closet. Recline into the king-sized VI-spring bed with white Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy towels, while enjoying full ocean view.

Three other rooms are located in the upper right wing of the house and two separately accessible bedrooms in the lower right part. All rooms offer the same wonderful ocean view and luxurious box-spring beds, crispy sheets, air-conditioning and LCD-TV/cable.

Our home is spacious enough for all guests to find a private place to relax; yet if you choose to stay with a smaller group, its layout offers a surprisingly intimate feeling.

So, enjoy alfresco dining or settle back into the poolside lounge-beds. Take advantage of the wonderful jet streamed pool or gym, or choose the ocean for a quiet moment of snorkeling. Rinse off at the pool shower under the Palm trees, and prepare for another day in paradise!

Villa Salentein is welcoming up to 12 guests, and our normal daily rate starts at $ 1140,- per day, but every once in a while we welcome you at special discounted rates. Please just contact us.

For the management of our home we have chosen the wonderful team of Pure Villas on Bonaire.

Femke Schut and her team offer by far the most professional, warm and attentive service on the island. They know Bonaire by heart and will guide and take care of you from the first contact, till the moment you return home safely.

Everything is possible, from the planning of your trip, full Gourmet Catering by Chef Philip, Private Diving Arrangements to relaxing massages upon arrival. Combined with many special complementary surprises that will make you feel even more spoiled!

Send Femke the details and wishes of your preferred stay and she and her team will arrange it all for you!

                      The Caribbean island of Bonaire is situated just north of the coast of South America. It's close to Aruba and Curacao and part of the Netherlands.

                      Divers' paradise. Though you won't find miles of sandy beaches and endless palm trees, it has a unique pristine character. It is known to have excellent conditions for wind- and kitesurfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. In fact Bonaire is one of the world's top 3 dive destinations. The water is crystal clear, and there are dozens of dive locations around, many of which you can access right off shore. In fact, one of the best right in front of Salentein.

                      Where you see dolphins passing by, almost on a daily basis.

                      Bonaire has a tropical climate, 30 degr. C year round, with a steady cool breeze blowing in from in from the east.The island is small, with only a few main roads and no traffic lights. Bonaire's 'Washington Slagbaai Park' is a truly amazing nature park, with many white sandy bays and bright colored flamingo's in the wild.

                      Bonaire has a rich mixture of food and over 70 different cultures to draw recipes from. There are many excellent restaurants and a daily fantastic supply of the best fresh groceries.

                      The languages spoken on Bonaire are the local Papiamentu and Dutch. But also Spanish and English are widely spoken.

                      When repeat visitors are asked why they keep coming back year after year they say: 'it is the warmth and friendliness of the people'.
