About Edithe Trepanier
I have been all around the world, 46 countries and counting! Bonaire is one of my favorite places and a very special island! Bonaire is quiet and very safe, the locals are super friendly, gracious, respectful and make everyone feel like one of their own. I love to windsurf, kitesurf and snorkel, and Bonaire offers some of the best snorkeling spots and year-round conditions in the world. One of the best spots is actually right in front of the house! The water temperature is in the mid 80's and remains stable year-round. The water is really at the perfect temperature.
Edithe Trepanier purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Edithe Trepanier chose Playa
I wanted a house in the Carribean that I would enjoy visiting when I needed to get away from the daily grind of life. Bonaire is always warm and my beautiful home is right by the water. Villa Trepanier is less than 15 meters from the edge of the water and a short walk away from the boardwalk and from all the main activities the town has to offer. I rarely rent a car as I prefer to go everywhere by walk or by scooter. Waterfront bars, restaurants and shops are all at a short distance. The property is also close by to some of the best snorkeling spots in the world. I am an ex-pro windsurfer and the windsurfing in Lake Bay is awesome, with Bonaire producing some of the best windsurfing athletes in the world. Kitesurfing, windsurfing, snorkeling, diving, exploring, fishing, great restaurants and friendly locals are what drew me to Bonaire. I certainely have no regrets regarding the purchase of this property, and am currently looking to purchase another one.
What makes this Villa unique
I love the fact that you can take a 5 minute cab ride from the airport, drop your bags at the door, slip on your swim trunks and can be snorkeling with the local tropical fish within 30 seconds of arriving at the Villa. The Villa is a non-busy one-way street away from the water. I also love the sound of the waves, watching the amazing sunsets from the patio and watching life go on from the front porch. The natural light is very special in this part of the Caribbean, it's truly a tropical paradise. One of the best snorkeling spots in Bonaire is right out the front door. Diving classes are availabke right next door, at the largest dive shop on Bonaire, ''Dive Friends'', all this at a 30 second walk from villa. The Villa is close to the best waterfront restaurants and bars all within short walking distance. In other words, paradise!

Great location and place
Villa Trepanier was a great place for our visit. Daniel and Janny were an excellent welcoming pair and very responsive to any concerns and questions. They arranged for transportation to and from the airport. The kitchen had everything we needed. The place was clean and well maintained. Only one thing and it is just my personal preference - the bedrooms did not have Windows that opened so you had to sleep in the air conditioning. Again - just my personal preferencw to sleep with fresh air
Hello Sam & thanks for the great review, My managers Janny & Daniel really enjoyed your group. As far as the windows, you are right with the ocean front windows that do not open, it was for security purposes when the villa was built, but there are window in every room facing the pool area.
What more could you ask for
This property is amazing. Fabulous location within walking distance to many restaurants and all the shopping downtown, next door to Dive Friends (for those that dive), rinse tanks and a place to hang dive gear, outdoor shower, AC throughout the villa, amazing view out the front windows. Light and bright living area, with plenty of space for 7 people, comfortable beds. This place checked all the boxes for our group and the property manager is very responsive and helpful. The villa is even better in person than the photographs.
As we are cat people, we even loved the friendly cat that visits on a regular basis. He is apparently a regular (and of course we fed him with the canned cat food the previous visitors left and bought more to replace it). Could not ask for a better place to stay in Bonaire. The consensus was unanimous, this villa will be our choice for our annual trip to Bonaire.
Thanks for a great review, I'm very pleased you like the villa & enjoyed your stay on Bonaire. Looking forward to have you has a guest at Villa Trepanier .
Starting-blocks from thé pickup at thé airport to thé stop at thé grocery store to thé final stop at thé villa everything sas perfect including thé Villa and thé surounding.
Thanks you Nicole
I'm very happy you enjoyed your stay at the Villa & on Bonaire, my managers really enjoyed your group.
Une superbe semaine!
Le site est exceptionnel. Et que dire des couchers de soleil. La Villa est très spacieuse, propre et tout près d’un PADI et les sites de plongées sont très accessibles. Nous étions 6 plongeurs à habiter la Villa et tout était parfait pour rincer et étendre nos équipements. Vraiment superbe endroit. On va revenir, c’est certain ❤️
Kitesurfing and Stand up paddeling are also available actvities on the island. Lots of bicycle and scooter rentals are available at less than 100 meters from the villa, and we offer a 20% discount at ''PB Car Rental'' directely at Flamingo airport.
