Santa Barbara villa description

Casa Presioso is a beautiful two-story house on a cul-de-sac in Santa Barbara on the island of Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean (former Netherlands Antilles). Being built on the hill, it has a spectacular free panoramic view overlooking the ocean, Kralendijk and the islet Klein Bonaire.

Relax in the private pool with spacious sundeck, lie back in the lush cushions of our lounge area on the porch, or enjoy the serenity of every-day's beautiful sunsets after dinner on the outdoor dining room on the second floor - the best way to conclude another day of diving or snorkeling!

Casa Presioso has room for 6 people. All bedrooms have A/C and traditional ceiling fans with remote control. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and private bathroom. The other two bedrooms have large double beds that can be separated into two single beds and a shared bathroom. The villa is rented as one property, but you will only be charged for the amount of bedrooms in use.

Casa Presioso is especially well suited and equipped for divers and snorkelers: on the side of the house you will find separate rinse tanks for clothes, dive equipment and underwater photo/film gear, as well as a (lockable) drying area.

NEW: since June 2014 Casa Presioso owns a brand new Toyota HiLux Double-cabin (5 pax) Pickup truck that can be lended to guests for only the cost of insurance and depreciation (no rental or other fees added): only $42 per night of your stay!

The computer in the living room is installed with professional photo editing software and equipped with a card-reader that can handle all types of memory cards. Use it to upload your photos to your Facebook or Flickr account, or view your slideshow on the TV screen in the living room! Throughout the house you will have (unlimited) broadband WiFi access.

The free-standing villa has a large and beautiful garden (1088 m² / 11,711 sq. ft.) with palm trees, bougainvillea and oleanders that bloom the whole year through.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2011

                      About the owner: We are a dutch couple working in the Amsterdam area as PhD molecular biologist at the Academic Medical Center and CSO of a medium-sized software company. When we aren't working you will probably find us up in the air (paragliding or flying a sports airplane), down below (diving and shooting UW pictures) or on the ground, riding our motor bike.

                      Why the Owner Chose Santa Barbara:
                      After having spent our holiday in several other houses on the island we thought it would be exciting to look for one that could be our own. One of the first houses we found was Casa Presioso and we immediately fell in love with its great lay-out and really spectacular views. We intend to make Casa Presioso a diver's paradise in Diver's Paradise Bonaire!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Nothing beats sitting on our outdoor dining terrace after dinner, enjoying a drink and a great sunset or gazing at the stars and lights of fishing boats on the sea at night... Starting June 2014 we lend our brand new Toyota pickup truck (suitable for diving) to our guests for only $42/night.
