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.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
Our group had 4 couples. This property was such a perfect fit for our group. We had the best time. Our host, Lambèr, was so helpful leading up to our trip and very accommodating during our stay. He took time to show us around the Villa the day we arrived pointed us in the direction of some spots we may need that night, and then came the next day to show us points of interest on the Island map. The Villa’s direct access to the ocean right of the patio has top notch snorkeling. We snorkeled everyday. Humming birds fluttered around the garden during the day. Just absolutely gorgeous and relaxing. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. Hands down one of our best vacations to date. Cannot wait to come back with our family!!
Fabulous villa, great location, wonderful host! I highly recommend this place!
Most amazing place right on the water
This VRBO was just great. Lamber was wonderful to work with. Great at all communications. He even left a tray of goodies & refreshment for us to enjoy when we arrived. The house is even better than described and the yard out to the water is amazing. We especially enjoyed the table by the water under the shade. It was so nice to sit in the sun on the lounge chairs, but when the sun was too much we easily moved to the table. We ate every breakfast & dinner at the table by the water. The rooms are very nice and the bathrooms are wonderful & updated. If you are a diver, the area for you equipment is really great. Easy to get to from our truck, but if we wanted to dive or snorkel right off of our area, we could easily get to all of our equipment. There is also an ice machine with came in very handy when using the cooler. The only area that could be improved would be the kitchen. It is very nice and has all you need. However, I could see it being updated sometime in the future. The photos of this house are exactly as it looks, except the garden & yard are even better. Thanks Lamber....you are a great host. The 10% coupon for our diving was an added bonus.
Wonderful Villa & Location on Bonaire
This was our second stay at Sunset Villa and it was the same as our first - excellent. To say that the owners Lambèr and Jacqueline are attentive, and great people, would be an understatement. Not much else can be said about the superb Villa that has not been said already - five private and lockable rooms each with an on-suite bath, a safe, a mini fridge, WIFI, and new A/C units. The villa has a large and fully stocked kitchen, BBQ grill by the ocean stocked with lump charcoal, and a never ending supply of ice via the outdoor ice maker. There are plenty of areas in the patios/balconies/gardens to get away from the group if you so desire. For divers, the rinse tanks, dive lockers, drying racks, gear up area and shower would be the envy of any fine dive shop. The Cliff dive site is right off the back patio via a private gated entrance to the sea. Dive Friends dive shop is just around the corner for super easy tank access. The Villa location is perfect to easily access the islands many amenities. We look forward to our next stay at the Villa, but really, YOU should stay somewhere else - it is getting harder for us to find open dates on the calendar!
Sunset Villa Made 8th Trip the Best
This was our eighth time to Bonaire; but first time renting a villa, and we are now spoiled. Lamber and Jacqueline's home made this dive trip the best one yet. Our group was three couples. The house had everything you could need--huge well stocked kitchen, comfortable bedrooms, and great amenities to support active divers. The back garden is absolutely delightful with all the plants and flowers, hummingbirds, and visiting iguanas! We enjoyed all of our meals in the many outdoor areas, sunbathed, and made shore dives right off the back steps! There was enough space that everyone in our group could spread out and have some privacy too. Several mornings we went up on the roof to watch the sunrise and listen to the roosters and island dogs wake up the day. Thanks to Lamber and Jacqueline for making Sunset Villa such a special place!
A Real Jewel
I recently spend 2 weeks at Sunset Villa with a group of friends and we all had a wonderful vacation while staying at Sunset Villa. The house was really pretty, super comfortable, practical, and had a very well equipped kitchen with new appliances including an ice maker. Everything is new and very well maintained.
The house is located right on the water and the snorkeling in front of the villa was really beautiful. It’s great just being able to jump in the water right from your house. The outdoor rinse station for gear, fresh water shower, drying racks, and closets, for snorkeling and diving gear were a huge benefit as well.
The owners, Lamber and Jacqueline, checked in on us a few times just to make sure everything was going well and to make sure that all of our needs were met. They provide a local cell phone to call them if needed, and to use for making local calls and reservations. They also responded very quickly to emails.
I cannot speak highly enough about Sunset Villa as well as Lamber and Jacqueline. The house is a real jewel and the hosts were so friendly and caring. You, your friends, and family would love renting this villa!
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.
