JUST CHILL ON BONAIRE!: So you don't want to go anywhere so what do you do on Bonaire? Simply throw on some snorkel gear and check out the Caribbean sea life and grea coral. The waters are shallow and reefs go on and on. Take a nature hike with or without a guide. The trail is easy to follow and you'll see local flora and fauna- parrots, lizards, iguanas, and so much more. Take a dip in the oceanfront MagnaPool or just relax in one of the chaise lounges by the sea or on the pool deck. You really do forget to count the days when you are by the sea!

Activities & Dining Near Villa Crown Ridge: There is great snorkelling in front of the house and several excellent dive operations nearby. The tropical trade winds generally blow from east to west. On the east coast of Bonaire is Lac, a bay closed off from the ocean by a coral reef lying in knee-deep water. The bay is an ideal windsurfing location. The fast-growing group of kite surfers can get their adrenaline pumping on the island's west coast, near 'Atlantis': a former diving location at the southern end of the island. Lac is about 15 minutes away and is a fun way to spend the day. Rent a windsurf board or rent a paddle boat, take a snorkel trip or dive trip, shop in the gift shop or just enjoy the beach dining. RumRunners is also just 1,5 miles drive where there is a wonderful restaurant and bar. In Kralendijk you will find a lot of restaurants one of our favourites is “It’s Rains Fishes” but if you want a more formal and romantic spot, just head to the Tipsy Seagull, you will feel like a god on Bonaire!

Fantastic trip!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I are not divers, but wanted to travel somewhere warm/sunny/quiet. We chose Bonaire somewhat on a whim and crossed our fingers. We most definitely were not disappointed with the accommodations. We appreciated that we were met at the airport despite a 2+ hour airline delay. The house was clean and we had more than everything we needed for a very comfortable and relaxing week. The mosquitoes were bad, in general, but we'll be better prepared next time. We look forward to returning!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit. Superb place. Well - maintained, and we noticed some improvements to the facility with new screen door, new security bars. Highly recommend.

(Only negative is that IF you need a TV, you will be disappointed with relatively small, poor quality TV. )

Nice Villa

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the view and the magnesium pool. The property is well maintained. Full air conditioning throughout the villa was a nice perk, but we really only used it at night. The arbor bed outside was nice at night to watch the stars. The villa is immaculately clean and the beds were quite comfortable. As two cooks, we enjoyed the large kitchen with the modern appliances.

Perfect location and beautifully equipped.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a perfect location for shore snorkeling directly off of Andrea 1. We saw the most fish as well as several turtles right out the back door. The house accommodated my father, brother/sister in law, my husband and me perfectly. We spent many hours sitting outside enjoying the beautiful sunsets while having cocktails. There is plenty of outdoor seating with shade if needed.

The neighborhood felt very safe. We walked throughout the two connected neighborhoods every morning and met fellow walkers/runners, bird watchers and residents. Everyone was friendly. The house is equipped with a security system and safe, which we used when we left the property.

Although the kitchen was well equipped, we went out to eat for dinner every night. We loved La Cantina for its service and deliciously prepared meals. Other restaurants we visited were Rum Runners (great view), Mezze, Capuchio and It Rains Fishes. All were excellent accept It Rains Fishes, which may have had an off night considering the great reviews.

The best snorkeling was right outside the villa at Andrea 1 and at Karpata. We also snorkeled at 1000 steps, Bari Reef, Tolo and several south of airport. Next time we will rent a truck so we can venture into the park.

Overall this is a perfect villa with a perfect location and great property managers!

Fabulous House - Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

A five star property with thoughtful owners who have made the effort to make sure their renters have everything they need for a successful vacation in Bonaire. Located at Andrea 1 dive site, you can walk out across the patio, down steps, and right into the water. Perfect for both snorkelers or scuba divers. With cleaning ladies and a pool attendant who come twice a week the house remains in tip top condition. We enjoyed eating at the numerous restaurants on the island. A number were exceptional. Our favorite was La Catina. If you prefer to eat at the house, the large grocery store, Van Den Tweel, carries a staggering selection. We rented a truck which was perfect for navigating the island's roads. It is a must if you are planning to go into the Washington-Slagbaai National Park, which we did on several occasions.

As snorkelers we visited quite a few locations along the east side of the island from the south to the north, including Klein Bonaire which has a magnificent beach along with good snorkeling and Lac Bay which is a unique experience with its shallow waters and long hike out to the reef. Each location offered something different, but we snorkeled Andrea1& 2 the most during our 4 week stay. These two dive sites never disappointed as far as seeing a numerous variety of fish from the ubiquitous parrot fish (queen, stop light, rainbow), trumpet, french angelfish (there were two who were extremely friendly), filefish, trunkfish, and tangs to the occasional turtle, spotted eel, bonefish, black margates, and more. Other dive/ snorkel spots had more variety and healthier coral , but the convenience of Andrea1&2 was a bonus we exploited.

There are the local lizards, including the iguanas that showed up whenever we ate outside on the patio/deck. Some of the little ones were very bold. We did not feed them although it seemed as if that was what they expected. However their boldness did result in some great pics. I loved seeing the flamingos at the shallow lakes within the park and at the southern end of the island near the mangroves.

I highly recommend this villa. For our first trip to Bonaire, it was the perfect home base from which to experience this lovely island. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

Welcome to Bonaire!

Many descriptions and slogans have been written about Bonaire: Best Kept Secret, Unhurried, Unspoiled, Unforgettable; Diver's Paradise; and the list goes on... The fact is that all these statements are true, and then some. Another truth is the statistic that over 55% of arrivals on Bonaire are repeat visitors!

There are a number of reasons people visit our island. First timers generally have heard about the climate, the water, the sun and what there is to do. When asked, repeat visitors generally say that they did not have enough time to do all they wanted to on their first visit. 'It is the warmth and friendliness of the people' that keeps visitors returning year after year.

Bonaire has the reputation of being laid back, slower paced and very tranquil. The good news is that while this is all quite true, the island also offers a lively nightlife, fun places to visit and world class restaurants
