Sabadeco villa description

Villa Vista Mare is a luxurious ocean-front estate located in the upscale Sabadeco neighborhood on the island of Bonaire. From the moment you enter Villa Vista Mare you get the sense of privacy and tranquility you deserve.

Villa Vista Mare is situated on the calm side of Bonaire’s ocean and is surrounded by a picturesque tropical garden which is frequented by parrots, hummingbirds, mockingbirds and sea eagles.

From the pool and beach enjoy sunsets, green-flash sunsets, dolphins, turtles and the sun sparkling on the water.

Villa Vista Mare has two main living areas, the main house and the gazebo. It is like getting two homes to enjoy. Your biggest challenge will be deciding where to relax!

The large main home has two suites and three additional bedrooms (see accommodation section for more info)
- Master Retreat Suite
- Premier Suite
- Seashell Bedroom
- Library Bedroom
- Garden Bedroom

• The Premier Suite on the upper level has a full kitchen and living room
• Four full bathrooms featuring large walk-in showers and a powder room with toilet
• A fully equipped gourmet kitchen with butler pantry and a commercial range
• An exercise room with yoga mats, free weights and Bowflex gym

A short stroll from the house through the tropical garden brings you to the beach-front Gazebo which features a beautiful infinity edge pool with built-in bar stools, large exposed areas for sunning, and extensive covered sitting areas when you want some shade.

Many guests spend most of their day sitting on a stool in the pool at the negative edge, reading a book and watching the waves gently touch the beach.

The two story Gazebo is steps from the pool, beach and ocean and has everything you need for spending a relaxing day in the pool by the ocean…
• Salt water pool (salt levels about the same as which is in a person’s eyes). No harsh chemicals.
• Pool is about 4.5 feet deep with broad gentle stairs for easy entry. It is deep enough for swimming laps, but stays warm, between 85 and 88 degrees all year.
• The Gazebo has two levels. The upper level has shaded seating and incredible views of the ocean, shore and Klein Bonaire the small island about 2 miles off shore.
• The Gazebo lower level has a kitchen which is fully stocked with plates, flatware, glasses, etc., a stainless steel refrigerator with freezer, a sink, a microwave, a propane BBQ grill, coolers, an outdoor shower, and a bathroom. It has a speaker for a smart phone.
• The Gazebo lower level has dining tables, teak lounge chairs located in many areas, so you can be as close or far away from the rest of your group as you wish.
• Rinse buckets for Scuba gear and places to hang gear and bathing suits.
• Wide gentle stairs that take you from the lower pool deck seating area to the beach.
• Wireless Internet

The beach is on Bonaire’s famous Marine Park which has preserved Bonaire’s reef and fish for over 40 years. The dive sites Andrea I and Andrea II are just south of Villa Vista Mare.

It’s your choice; enjoy lazy afternoons at the pool watching for flamingos, dolphins and pelicans, or snorkel or dive in the incredibly vibrant underwater world.

                  Villa Vista Mare is located in upscale, quiet Sabadeco Bonaire. The ocean-side location has easy direct access to the beach and is on Bonaire Marine Park's Andrea site. Incredible marine life starts right off shore. Since our home is on the west coast, the ocean is usually very calm and great for easy snorkeling. Parrots are often seen in our yard, iguanas wander by, pelicans patrol, and sea eagles often perch between our home and the ocean. Sunsets are spectacular. Our home is in a very private and quiet location.

                   

                  Manager info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About: We travel extensively, but our main home is Villa Vista Mare on Bonaire. We love to open our home to guests who appreciate luxury, privacy and tranquility. When we are on Bonaire you can find us scuba diving, snorkeling, playing tennis and photographing the incredible beauty of Bonaire. We hope you enjoy our home and the island we love, Bonaire.

                  Why Sabadeco:
                  We spent 6 years designing and building our slice of paradise on Bonaire. After traveling to many Caribbean destinations we chose to make Bonaire our home because of the incredibly kind and caring local people, world class scuba, snorkeling and windsurfing, limited rain and no hurricanes, great infrastructure and political stability.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Our home is not the typical vacation rental. It is our primary home, filled with high quality furniture, luxurious amenities and architectural details like solid Mahogany doors and windows, hardwood beams and hand hand-crafted tiles. We designed our dream home so every element would promote stress free living. We hope you feel as at peace here as we do.
