Why Priscilla chose Belnem
After more than a decade in the Indian Ocean, the Journey led me to Bonaire that i had already visited for windsurfing vacations. I fell in love with the island, and decided to invest my time, my energy ...and my money to build a new dream Oceanfront. Sharing this story is probably the best i can do to push people to believe in their own dreams !
What makes this Apartment unique
The sight of the pristine water right in front, at the first step inside the lodge will probably leave you breathless... The warmth of the wooden ambiance will balance with this so bright turquoise, and for sure it won't take you so long to feel at home and serenely wrapped to enjoy your vacations on "Beautiful Bonaire"...
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Sunset Beach Lodges exceeded our expectations...
Sunset Beach Lodge was the absolute BEST place to stay in Bonaire. Beautiful accommodations, direct ocean access for diving / snorkeling, incredible sunsets, unbeatable hospitality and an overall incredible experience.
Priscilla is great! You can see Salt Pier from this property. Both bedrooms have king size beds and air conditioning in the bedrooms only. Property is well equipped and the shared pool with Pepper, the property next door, is great. Ocean Oasis is right next door. A deep sink is available for rinsing gear and there is an outside hang bar with routine breeze for quick drying.
A hang bar in a locked room is also available. We had no problem with security during our week in June 2019. We would return to this property for another week of diving on Bonaire.
We just returned from a beautiful stay in Bonaire and the accommodations made it even more priceless. Priscilla was a gracious hostess and the condo was perfect.... We will definitely return!
Dear Jean, thank you very much for your nice feed-back ! I'm so glad that you spent a great time at the lodges, and you could enjoy Bonaire through different activities ! It has been really nice to meet you both, and obviously you will be more than welcome to come back anytime you want ! Very kindly, Priscilla.
Review of beach lodge SALT in Bonaire
The beach lodge salt was excellent. It is located directly at the ocean front, a nice place for snorkelling. The terrace and swimming pool are great! The house has a lot of space and luxury. We enjoyed our stay and the hospitality of Priscilla a lot!
Thank you so much René (and sorry for late reply !) It has been a real pleasure to host you with your family :) Anytime you want to come back, you will be more than welcome ! Very kindly, Priscilla.
Perfect Base Camp In Paradise.
It is hard to sum up in words just how wonderful our experience was at "Salt", our base camp on the island of Bonaire. From the moment our flight landed and we crossed through immigration, we were greeted by Priscilla's warm welcome. She drove with us to the property making sure we were comfortable with how everything worked from the AC to the beautiful full wall, sliding doors which let in the magnificent ocean breeze.
The kitchen was not only highly functional but amazingly well appointed. We have rented homes all over the world but this is the first time we didn't need to immediately run to the market upon arrival. The refrigerator was stocked with everything we needed for breakfast and lunch the next day, plus an assortment of fresh fruit and breads... there was even a bottle of wine for later that evening.
Because there was no need to go grocery shopping right away, we were able to immediately unwind with a stroll out the back door and into the beautiful turquoise ocean water. As amazing as the water looks on the surface, it is even more breathtaking once you don a snorkel and take in the coral and wide variety of tropical fish on display. We have paid $50+ per person to go on snorkeling excursions that came nowhere near the majesty of what can be found literally in the back "yard" of Salt.
The home is well situated on the island. You are mere minutes away from great wind surfing (I recommend Windsurf Place), the Donkey Sanctuary, the Salt Flats, great dining (Windsock the Beach, It Rains Fishes), water taxis to Klein Bonaire and much more. On days when you are feeling like a bit more of an excursion, take the drive to Washington Slagbaai National Park or the town of Rincon with it's Cadushy Distillery and the amazing Posada Para Mira which serves up delights for all your senses with it's delicious food and traditional live music.
And when you're ready to just relax and breathe this wonderful home will be waiting to welcome you back to re-energize in paradise.
- Coral reef ocean is your back yard
- Beautiful wood architecture
- Well appointed kitchen
- Priscilla, her warm welcome and attention to detail
- Prime location
- Construction next door. Minor and not even noticeable sound wise from Salt and the project will probably be complete by the time anyone reads this for booking, but I believe in full transparency for reviews.
- You have to go home, eventually
Wow, wow, woW !!
This is a review !! Alex, i have to say that you surprised me (and obviously made me feel flatered and in awe) with your writing, as maybe the lodges did for you during your vacations ! I am so happy that you could find everything you needed for your stay. You truly have been ones of my favourite guests till now ! It is useless to say that ANYTIME, you are more than welcome back. It will be with great pleasure that i will open the door for you and your family :) Till then, take good care of you. Very kindly, Priscilla.
Good times in Bonaire
We had a great time at Salt in Belnem. The owner Priscilla is a very nice and conscientious person. She met us at the airport and gave us a helpful tour of the home. She was very responsive when we had a few questions during our stay. She has done a beautiful job with the design and upkeep of this home. The prevailing breeze goes right through the home when windows are open, which made the house very comfortable and air conditioning unnecessary. There was construction going on next door when we stayed here, but overall the location is excellent. You are on some of the bluest, clearest water you will ever find. Sunsets are not bad! There is a sunken area in the deck which is perfect for sitting with friends in the evening. The snorkeling directly behind the home is excellent---lots of beautiful fish. In the morning you could sometimes hear the braying of the wild donkeys that live to the east. The area is fairly pedestrian friendly. Good for a walk or a run in the morning. My only regret is that we stayed one week and not two---something I hope we can remedy next year.
Thank you so much Lance for your very nice review. I truly appreciate :) And it was a great pleasure to meet you all. It's always nice to meet kind new persons from abroad when we live on islands :) Of course you will be more than welcome to come back anytime ! Take care of you till then ! Kindly, Priscilla.
