Property description

My Heaven, Mi Shelu in Papiamentu, is a stunning on the ocean five bedroom villa with direct access to a secluded beach and the Andrea II dive site. A vacation at My Heaven will redefine your meaning of pleasure, lifting it to “heavenly” heights.

My Heaven is a unique intensely private paradise perfect for two to ten. Located in the exclusive Sabadeco area of Bonaire, it may be one of the only large home on Bonaire with secure private grounds, a beach and direct ocean access. The 3/4 acres (3,000 sq. meters) of gardens planted with more than 1500 species of local and exotic plants provide a tropical retreat, screen the entire property from the public, and create a paradise of seclusion and beauty for your relaxation and rejuvenation.

Mi Shelu is a special experience, a way of living life as it is intended to be lived. With almost 4,000 sq. feet of room and more than 1500 sq. ft. of screened lanais, including a private lanai for the master bedroom, the spaciousness is sumptuous. The lanais wrap the seaside of the upper levels providing entertaining and dining space for you and your friends, the perfect spot for a cocktail and fun with spectacular views of the sea, sunsets, green flashes, and cavorting dolphins.

The upper level is also home to the 600 sq.ft. master bedroom suite with private lanai, an even larger living entertaining and relaxing living room, and a cook or caterer’s paradise kitchen equipped for all your entertaining needs. The upper level has wireless internet service. (The thick concrete of Mi Shelu does not allow the signal to penetrate to the lower levels.)

The lower level has two king bed suites or 400 sq. ft. each, a queen bed suite and a twin suite. All bedrooms in Mi Shelu have their own air-conditioner, and ceiling fans if you choose to sleep with the beautiful Bonaire breezes. The rooms are furnished with lovely unique appointments from America and Europe, en suite baths including European shower fixtures, sinks, toilets and vanities, TV’s, comfortable chairs, tables and desks. All suites have custom designs and furniture themes. The lower level provides direct access to the pool and security gate to the private entry to the ocean.

Mi Shelu is situated and designed to catch Bonaire’s tropical breezes. Mi Shelu has security systems, smoke and fire alarms, motion detectors, window and security locks. All lanais have multiple high speed high efficiency fans, even the second downstairs kitchen has ceiling fans so your poolside shade area is cooled down. ( There is an additional charge for air conditioning in the kitchen and living rooms.)

For your pleasure and entertainment there is a pool side kitchen complete with Weber gas grill, full size refrigerator, sink, and completely stocked kitchen with service for 20. For your entertainment pleasure there is a table for 12 in the shade and smaller tables and chairs for 10 in the sun around the pool. The pool and pool area provide privacy even from the beach while offering fantastic views. The large gazebo offers additional seating, shade and entertaining areas.

The pool has 4 in pool seats with fantastic 180 degree views of the sea, Klein Bonaire and Mount Brandaris. Gentle steps make pool entry and exit easy for adults and children.

Mi Shelu also has an outdoor shower for your convenience after a dive or before you enter the pool. There is a dive gear rinse tank for your convenience. There is also a clothes washer and dryer for your convenience.

If you desire there is an 2 person ocean kayak for your enjoyment. Please be sure to use the provided life vests. (Kayaking is at your own risk. Children must not use the kayaks.)

Please walk the grounds, smell the flowers, pick the fruit off the trees, cut fresh flowers for yourself, put an hibiscus in your hair. Please be careful near the cactus.




Additional Optional Services

We will arrange or help refer you for delivery and pick up of dive tanks, a personal food shopper, a caterer.

Our Staff

Our staff have been with us for many, many years. We trust and respect them as people and professionals. They know the house and grounds and will take wonderful care of all your needs.

Our manager has been a friend and manager with us for many years. He will meet you at the airport, show you to your car rental, lead you to Mi Shelu, give you the keys, a detailed walk through of the property, show you where everything is, show you how to work everything and answer all your questions. If you need anything you will go directly to our manager. (Local law does NOT permit the manager to provide taxi or taxi like service.)

Our pool man comes once a week and keeps the pool bright and sparkling. We believe he is the best on the island.

Our maintenance man has been a friend and with us for 15 years. He can fix anything. He was a key person in building Mi Shelu. No one knows it better.

Our cleaning team have cleaned Mi Shelu since the day it was finished. We know them and trust them implicitly. They will make sure the home is spotless for your arrival and will freshen the house mid week.

Manager info

About: We left the cold winters of Vail, Colorado to build our island dream home. We have been able to live full time on the island and enjoy many, many, special times in the home with family and friends. We built the villa in 2007 while living at our condo at Sand Dollar.

Why Sabadeco:
It was a dream of ours for a long time to live on an island. We were lucky enough to retire 12 years ago and make Bonaire our life. We now have grandchildren stateside and visit them frequently..

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Directly ocean front. Walk to diving from home. Artist and Craft supplies for the aspiring artists. Private and secluded, watch the world go by. Large enough for family gatherings. Chef's delight kitchen
