Beautiful Ocean Front Home With Private Salt Water Pool
About Lisa Caradonna
As the previous owner of a scuba diving tour company and an avid diver Bonaire was one of my favorite islands. I started building Casa Grande around 2010 and it is finally finished, luxury pool and all. Although I live in Florida I spend my winters on Bonaire and enjoy the peaceful oceanfront view, wonderful breezes and quiet ambiance. I enjoy snorkeling, swimming, reading mysteries and painting in my spare time. I originally built the downstairs apartment for my children but they do not come that often and I finally realized it is a shame to leave it unoccupied. It is a beautiful apartment with a fantastic oceanfront view. I love to watch the sail boarders, dive boats and sail boats go by out of course, I get to see the cruise ships arriving and departing almost daily. I also love to cook and I have huge kitchens in both apartments.
Lisa Caradonna purchased this House in 2003
Why Lisa Caradonna chose Belnem
The apartment is a 5 minute drive from the airport and 10 minutes to downtown or grocery store. We are situated on private oceanfront property with walk in beach access. You will have a beautiful two-sided large patio overlooking a beautiful old lighthouse and the ocean. Inside is modern, fully furnished and large. Plenty of space for a family of six or three couples. Great for scuba divers and snorkelers, sail-boarders, wind-surfers, sun worshipers, adventurers or lay back and read a book.

Location, location, location!
Great location and view. We walked out to the water every morning to watch the ocean as the sun came up - just beautiful. Also loved having dinner on the back porch watching the waves crash on the shore. Having the Delfin’s resort and dive shop right next door proved super convenient for dive tank exchanges and an easy meal. Convenient to town and both southern and northern dive sites. Well stocked kitchen. Be sure to read the directions on keys. Property manager, Francey, was super helpful and responsive.
We are so glad you all had a wonderful trip. We hope you come back and visit us soon!
The house was great! There was plenty of room the kitchen was well stocked with every utensil you might want to use for cooking and storing leftovers. The porch was a real plus we lived out there.
I am so glad you enjoyed our home and we love the deck too!
Best vacation ever!
Our stay at Casa Grande was fabulous! From the oceanfront location and beautiful views (gorgeous sunsets, almost daily rainbows!) to the perfectly appointed house, this 2 week vacation was a most memorable one for our friends and family. Francey (our property contact) was so very helpful and Lisa (property owner) was always available whenever we had questions! This property was perfect and we hope to be back soon!!!
I am so glad you all had a wonderful vacation and we do hope that you come stay with us again!

The home is magnificent with an amazing location, ocean view and outside living space. The diving in front of the house is awesome and so is the outside rinse area. The kitchen is well appointed and functional and the comfort of the home is spot on. The outdoor living space is phenomenal and the pool is off the charts! Just wish we’d had PM meet us on the 1st day to help with all the keys, gate fob and pool bathroom, which we hadn’t yet discovered Lol! Have PM show you how to use the grill-we swapped tanks and had 2 engineers try to get it fired up for our Friday evening grill fest-oh well. The other thing to be aware of is the full price of house rent and damage deposit are due in full at the time of booking, unlike most of all the other VRBO bookings. Overall, this home is fantastic and we will definitely be back!
I am so sorry you could not get the grill working. We recently change the policy to 10% down with the balance due 90 in advance. I am sorry we did not have this in place for you.
We hope you come back and stay with us again!
The water is great
The views are over the top. From gorgeous water to flamingo in flight everyday from the patio, it was great. Very well furnished.
If I had to find a fault, I would say that the no air in the living room and kitchen sometimes was not great. We survived and made us stay at the pool more. Great house.
We are so glad you all had a wonderful time and we hope you stay with us again sometime!
Most homes to do not have A/C in the common areas, bedroom only, as it is so expensive.
We are glad you enjoyed the outdoor areas, we try to give options for our guests.
