Property description

“Raising the bar for vacation rentals in Bonaire”, Beachcomber Villas is the ideal getaway for singles, couples or travel companions who prefer private and personal accommodations over hotels and resorts. This one bedroom apartment was completed in March 2011 and tranquilly furnished with a keen attention to detail. Located on the second floor above the owners quarters, the suite offers stunning views of the sea and of Klein Bonaire. Only the shoreline – no roads or pathways – separates this unique property from the sea making it the ideal setting for vacationing in Bonaire.

The large kitchen offers a full size fridge and stove/oven, numerous small appliances, as well as abundant wares and utensils. Sleep in optimal comfort with the ocean breezes or air conditioning on the pillow-top mattresses topped with deluxe bedding.

Enjoy some down time inside while being entertained with more than 70 cable channels on the flat screen TV or with your own iPOD playing through the stereo. Spend a little of your surface interval surfing the WIFI internet from the garden, the seaside terrace, the extremely large upper terrace, or take a plunge in the freshwater pool located only steps away from the front door.

Centrally located within the community of Hamlet Villa, the town of Kralendijk is just 5 minute drive. Or, take advantage of the Villa’s dedicated parking and walk a few minutes to pick-up groceries or to enjoy the night life and fine dining at Captain Don’s Habitat’s or at Buddy Dive.

It doesn’t get any easier to explore the amazing underwater life with our dive & snorkel packages. Our partnered dive shop is a mere 500 feet away, and rinse & secure storage facilities are on-site. Calling to you from only stones throw from the seaside terrace gate, the “Cliff” site will certainly give you the urge to submerge.

With its stunning views, optimal location, and relaxed atmosphere, Beachcomber Villas is as unique in its offerings as Bonaire is in its diving freedom. Both are treasures to be experienced.

Please inquire as to availability. If this apartment is already reserved, we have similar accommodations that may also suit your needs.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Tired of shoveling snow and having to travel to enjoy warm water diving, we explored many tropical places in search of our ideal Caribbean island. We arrived to Bonaire in August 2009 and fell in love instantly. Four months later, we said farewell to our family and friends in Calgary Canada and moved to our island of paradise: Bonaire.

Why the Owner Chose Hato:
After what seemed to be an endless search for a property that could provide a home for us and a home-away-from-home for visitors to the island, a seafront villa came onto the market. Almost too good to be true, in a quiet family and tourist orientated neighborhood, this villa offered everything we wanted and more. The main floor provided owner accommodations and envisioning the upstairs bedrooms to become the perfect setting for apartments was easily seen. Its location on the island is ideal for access to dive sites, stores and restaurants. Best of all, the 'Cliff' (one of Bonaire's best reefs for snorkelers and divers) was the backyard! Does it get any better?

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Beachcomber Villas has already created wonderful memories for us and for our guests. Not only the setting for a wedding only days after we purchased the villa, our seaside terrace provides front row seats for beautiful sunsets, a spectacle of magnificent sail boats and yachts (including the International Sailing Regatta), and topside sea life entertainment including turtles and dolphins! When the sea view stirs the urge to submerge, the diving and snorkeling through our gate is picturesque to say the least. Aside from countless reef fish, it is not uncommon for sightings of schools of blue tangs and blue wrasse, tarpon, octopus, french angels, squid, and very large parrot fish! It truly is a piece of paradise! And it's our pleasure to share with it everyone.
