Belnem villa description

Elkadia is a charming ocean front property located in the southern part of the island, in Belnem, Punt Vierkant. Perfect for dive groups, families, romantic get aways; to relax, chill and have fun.

Having the Caribbean in your backyard, you are only a jump away from a huge, beautiful, turquoise 'salt water pool' with your own private dive site. There is a ladder that gives you easy access to the ocean also when wearing your diving gear.

Coming out of the ocean you can use the outside shower to rinse off. Your diving gear can rinse off in the tank and dry in the 'diving gear hangout' by the side of the house. Benches are available there to easily put on and take off your gear. This area is also readily accessible from where you park your car, should you come back from one of the many other dive sites on Bonaire.

Views above the water are breathtaking as well! On the ocean deck there is a shaded gazebo and benches in the rocks where you can relax and enjoy gorgeous sunsets, green flashes, colorful parrots and sometimes pink flamingos flying by. With your early morning coffee or tea be on the lookout for dolphins swimming by. At night, don't miss gazing at the stars. Just spectacular!

The stretch of sand between the terrace and the ocean deck allows for lots of space to have fun playing beach games, reading a book, surfing the net, or working on your tan.

The large covered terrace is also great for taking it easy, especially in the hammock! Enjoy having your meals al-fresco and preparing a yummy barbeque on the charcoal grill.

The terrace, living and dining room, and fully equipped kitchen, all have ceiling fans. Each one of the 4 bedrooms has air-conditioning and its own private full bathroom. See details below.

In addition to being in the middle of the southern island shore dives, world renown windsurfing at Sorobon - Lac Bay and kite-surfing at Atlantis beach are just minutes away.

Our property manager will welcome you to Elkadia and be of assistance to you during your stay.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1982

                      About the owner: Dad named our beach house Elkadia after his three daughters: Ellen = El, Karen = Ka and Diana = Dia

                      Why the Owner Chose Belnem:
                      Our father fell in love with Bonaire while on a sailing trip through the Caribbean. He was instantly captivated by Bonaire's tranquility, nature, charm and beautiful, breathtaking, turquoise ocean. He set about making his dream come true of a place where we all could gather to spend memorable time together. In 1982 we inaugurated our precious beach house. Always grateful!

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Having the Caribbean in our backyard is the greatest luxury! Bonaire and Elkadia have a special magic to us. They are a source of peace, warmth, happiness, relaxation, excitement, awe, fun and inspiration.
