"We stayed in this condo twice already and I am in the process of booking our next trip. We love a balcony overlooking the water where we eat all our meals. Martin and Nicole are a property managers and have been very helpful. The condo is in very good location 15 minutes drive to windsurfing beach. I would highly recommend this place."Guest: Anonymous Date of Stay: January 2014 Review Submitted: May 25, 2014View listing
"Over the top villa!!” 5 of 5 stars This is the BEST vacation we have had on the island so far. We celebrated our 25th wedding Anniversary as well as both our Birthdays the week we stayed at this Villa. As you might expect there was a lot of planning involved, having two villas filled with family & friends (22 people in all). I worked closely with Scott for well over a year planning this occasion. He helped with everything I was in question about regarding the Villa as well as the island itself. I couldn't have done it with out his help for sure. I cant say enough about Scott and his lovely wife who were able to meet the week before we moved into their home. What a lovely couple and it shows totally in their home and the love they have put into it!! The pictures don't do it the justice it deserves. Its BEAUTIFUL! Their care taker Marie and the manager Bas were there anytime we needed them. Marie worked our event with such elegance. Some of the little things that arose took just one call to Bas and he was there in five minutes, service beyond anything we expected. The owners came in the week before to make sure everything was perfect. That alone was far beyond anything a we expected. THANK YOU ALL!!! The view from the pool .. just amazing. They have a outdoor kitchen by the pool that includes refrigerator, gas grill, bathroom and sink. We had our vow renewal in the gazebo on top and reception below with music and dancing, all at sunset.. It was the perfect place ! Just a short walk out the back gate to the sea where we did some day and night diving, also snorkeled from our villa down ten villas to villa Salentine #36 where we had other friends staying. It was a slow drift for about an hour, Just on the snorkeling we saw everything you would hope to see in the ocean. There was a Octopus baby under a dock and a HUGE one out in the open, many peacock flounders and even baby ones, four puffers, one all white and a scorpion fish . I could go on and on.. it was AMAZING to see so much.. Our dives were just as exciting. The lobsters & Octopus at night!!! totally amazing. If I could buy this place we would be there right now.. We love it.. Best place on the island for sure. The only thing I would have done differently is If I had known Villa Lamans was next door,I would have had the other group of 11 rent that one. Our friends were close but they wanted to be closer. :)) we had 2 young grand kids with us.. they loved it too!!! PERFECT PLACE."Guest: cheryl c.

"Stayed 10 nights In the Blue View. From the moment we got there we knew we struck gold! Just the place for us....top floor (3), everything we needed and a dive shop on premises. We could live there quite comfortably and not have to purchase a thing. The breeze that blows through that apartment is amazing. In fact, we had to throttle it down with the sliders! Marji even provided a prepaid phone which we didn't use but was very reassuring to have along with us. The apartment is fairly close to the airport but planes don't fly in late at night so it was a non-issue. This place is QUIET....just what we needed and convenient to everything, diving, groceries, restaurants/shops, etc. We did not get to meet Marji as she was off-island but her communication with us was spot-on for everything. Hangers and drying rack for gear/clothing on the screened-in porch was a nice touch. A washing machine is in the apartment as well. The pool was lovely and completely vacant each time we used it. The grounds are kept up nicely. The dive shop down stairs Div'Ocean is "top tier" as are the owners, Peter and Bianca. They also provide gear storage for free and a place to rinse gear when you are done for the day and access to tanks 24/7. For those wanting to go to Klein for the day, their dive boat is right there too. Just roll out of bed onto the boat! It's just a combination of many things that make staying at the Blue View such a gem. Would we stay there again? You bet ya! We have found a home with Marji's Blue View."Guest: John and Dawn Date of Stay: September 2014 Review Submitted: October 14, 2014View listing
"Our stay at VINIBU was nothing less than exceptional. We had great expectations for the condo and they were absolutely surpassed! The location of Bellevue is perfect. We couldn't have imagined staying anywhere else on the island. Everything is provided for from the super comfy bed to the well appointed kitchen to the furniture and unique flourishes throughout the condo. The view from the balcony is simply one of the most amazing sights I’ve laid eyes on and I’ve traveled extensively and to some very beautiful and exotic locations in my time. The sound of the waves from below fills the condo with the most amazing sound...So much so that the TV was not turned on once during the whole trip! The house reef was superb for snorkeling and some of our best diving was conducted immediately off the Bellevue beach. Buddy Dive at Belmar was so conveniently located and easy to work with. We instantly connected with Bonaire and with VINIBU and felt at home immediately. I cannot imagine staying anywhere but here when we return which I hope will be an annual event for us."Guest: Kat O.
