About Lambèr Dohmen
In 2003 our friends and we visited Bonaire on holiday and fell in love with the island. In 2005, after several vacations on Bonaire, we had the opportunity to buy this villa at the seaside and we did. We immediately started to renovate the villa and upgraded it for divers. Two years later we packed our stuff in the Netherlands and left for Bonaire, for good. We bought a small house to live in ourselves, which provided us with the opportunity to keep the villa in premium condition for other people to enjoy.
Lambèr Dohmen purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Lambèr Dohmen chose Hato
We bought this villa because we liked the view over de carribean sea from the first time we were standing in the garden of the villa. After all the renovation, which we knew we had to do, we could enjoy the sound in the early morning and the evening, rolling waves and nothing else. AMAZING.
What makes this Villa unique
The villa also has an alarmsystem to protect your valuable things. Wifi to stay in contact with your family and friends and of course the social media. There is also a cell Phone with a local number. To make your restaurant reservations or to contact us. You can contact us 24 hours a day. We have made an arrangement about using the swimmingpool of the Hamlet Oasis resort which is just behind us. When you rent the villa you can use the swimming pool whenever you want.

We just arrived home from a week at Sunset Villa. The house was really amazing! The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need! Lambèr met us at car rental place and we followed him to the villa. When we arrived at the villa he had drinks, snacks, and even breakfast for the next morning waiting for us! He took the time to show us around the villa and sat down with my husband to go over the map of the island and make sure we had no questions. My son had a medical problem during our visit and he checked in with us afterwards to make sure he was okay, as well as providing 24 hour contact info to him if we had any problems. The diving from the villa was amazing! My husband and son would dive a new spot in the mornings and then dive at the villa in the afternoons. Dive friends is literally a minutes walk from the house and made it so convenient for swapping out tanks every day! If we ever return to Bonaire this is the only place I would want to stay, I don’t think anywhere else would ever compare! Thank you Lambèr for sharing your villa with us!
Best of Bonaire
The house was absolutely perfect. We had a group of 10 and the house accomodated all of our needs perfectly. We cooked a few times and found the kitchen stocked beyond our needs. The house was one of the cleanest rentals we have ever stayed in. The gardens facing the ocean were very beautiful and well maintained. Outdoor seating was wonderful and we spent most of our time under the pergola watching beautiful sunsets. The added bonus was the ice machine on the patio!! And then there is Lamber.. He greeted us as if we were old friends, responded to emails efficiently, and checked in on us mid-week to see if there was anything else he could do for us. He is very pasionate about his guests enjoying their vacation. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a wonderful experience on Bonaire.
Perfect stay on Bonaire
Our small group of three couples recently returned from a fabulous trip to Bonaire and a perfect stay at Sunset Villa.
The villa was truly exceptional. The location was perfect. Less than 100 feet to a nice dive shop, across the gravel drive from a nice pool, and set toward the end of a short row of similar villas this home couldn't have been more perfectly placed.
Every bedroom was exceptionally appointed and thoroughly clean. The attached bath for every room, private televisions and small refrigerators, private safes, and powerful air conditioning made every sleeping area comfortable.
The kitchen was huge and had every tool you could need to cook your own meals. The appliances are stainless and new. The full sets of dishes, pans, and silverware are in excellent shape. Plug-ins were ample throughout the house. The inside seating areas were rarely used. We appreciated the den area complete with an array of books about Bonaire and a cell phone for our use.There were ceiling fans everywhere to help keep the house cool during hot days without full-house air conditioning.
The garden was fabulous. The plants were in bloom and smelled heavenly. The two dining tables -- one by the house and one by the ocean -- were both perfect for our group and could easily have seated 8 or more. There were private seating areas in the garden, and beach chairs oceanside. A few private steps down from the garden is easy access to terrific dive sites where we had some lovely dives.
The house comes with a fabulous dive gear cleaning station. Two huge tubs to soak gear; a shower; a separate tub for cleaning cameras. The lockers were huge and easily fit 2 sets of gear. Much bigger than any dive resort provides. There was a hanging rack with pegs for fins and hangars for wet gear. Across was a long bench with places to store tanks securely. I can't think of anything that could be improved with this set up.
The owner, Lamber, was equally excellent. Response time was short. He replied to every question and every email quickly. He worked to get us set up with dive shop and vehicle rental. He made referrals for fishing. We had difficulty with the safe and he came over quickly to fix it. He could not have been more helpful or friendly. He could not have been more helpful; I would rent from his again in a heartbeat.
You can't go wrong with Lamber, and can't go wrong with this villa. It -- and Lamber -- were simply outstanding and I recommend this rental without reservation.
Best Rental in Bonaire
I chose this rental because of the reviews of the owner. He was helpful and accommodating from the start. The house is perfect and well set up. Each of the five bedrooms is unique, comfortable and has its own bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped and we arrived to a bottle of wine, a small selection of beer, and some snacks to nibble on before deciding where to go for dinner. The garden is on the ocean and is a restful, quiet place to sit and watch the hummingbirds and butterflies. The ocean access has the best snorkeling and diving on the island. We received excellent advise and help arranging the truck rental and our diving arrangement. We also got excellent recommendations for restaurants and sites to visit around the island. We all loved this house and very much did not want to leave. We will definitely be back to Bonaire and will stay here!
Love Bonaire Sunset Villa
We recently returned from our 5th stay at Bonaire Sunset Villa (our 8th stay on the island in 9 years) and we truly can't imagine staying anywhere else! We had already booked our weeks for next year before boarding our return flights to the states in March. Each year we try to share this treasure of a property with a few new friends and they always want to be invited back!
The owners of this villa are wonderful people and are the most accommodating of anyone we have ever rented from. They are a pleasure to work with and were very flexible with our seemingly ever-changing needs this year ... even helping with an unexpected second car rental at the last minute. Lamber will go out of his way to ensure his guests enjoy a worry free holiday!
The villa is very well appointed (including the addition of an ice maker since our last stay), the beds are comfortable and the rest of the time we spend outside in the magnificent garden, relaxing by or in the water and exploring the wonders of the island!
We couldn't believe all the flamingos we saw on the island this year! We can't wait to return in 2018.
We had the pleasure of meeting Lambèr and his charming wife while we spent 10 glorious days in their Sunset Villa. Their reef-side villa was perfect in every way...every detail of comfort, want, and need was already in place. From the five en'suite bedrooms to the fully furnished kitchen...perfection! The refrigerator was filled with breakfast and lunch for the next day so that we could catch our breath after arriving...joyful! Every day we enjoyed meals by the ocean and snorkeling just steps from the villa. Can hardly wait to go back!!!
The Bonaire Sunset Villa is located in HATO, a quiet neighbourhood. The dive shop, Dive Friends, Hamlet dependence, is a stone throw from the villa. It's a drive through, so very easy to get your dive tanks. Also to get the latest information about what kind of special things people saw lately in the water.
