“Villa Trepanier” is a modern & large (2200 square feet), 3 bedroom 2.5 bathrooms with AC in all the rooms & living area. This quiet, modern, glass-walled, the villa is bright, very spacious, airy and located just 30 feets from the crystal blue waters edge. This villa is perfect for ocean lovers & particularily divers, as we are 75 steps form Dive friends Bonaire yellow submarine the island flag ship dive center. The is a large pool located in the back of the Villa.

Emmanuelle, will explain how to use the locks, air conditioning and safe, and give you a complimentary cell phone that you may use to contact her or make local calls for the duration of your stay.
Inside, the villa is bright with sunlight permeating the main living room and front porch, lots of air flowing, clean and modern, cool stone floors, leather couches, new TV, and wood table accenting the granite kitchen. The Villa has 3 bedrooms set up with queen sized beds. Since an additional single bed ca be installed in the master bedroom, you can sleep 7 in 4 beds. A baby crib and high chair are available.
There are 2.5 bathrooms. The master bedroom has its own privat complete bathroom. The second largest complete bathroom is shared; communicating with the middle room and the third larger room. Both bathrooms have walk-in showers.
There is also an outdoor shower on the patio for rinsing after a swim or dive. The hammock & rinse bines are very appreciated form our divers community.
Dive Friends, a PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center that caters to divers of every skill level and age, is less than 50 meters away. As a resident of our villa, you will enjoy a 15% discount on diving services. Of course, you may also step out of the villa and go straight into the ocean for breathtaking shore diving right out of your front door! The house reef is called something special.
The sea life is amazingly diverse right in front of the house and fish can be fed by hand in just 4 feet of water! If you swim 35 meters out from the shore of the house, the bottom drops off quite fast and turns into a wall dive pretty quickly!
Magnificent soft hued sunsets are the evening norm. The quality of the light is magical in Bonaire & can be enjoyed from the patio with a glass of wine.
If you like eating fresh local fish, just walk a 100 meters down to the fishing docks and befriend a local fisherman.
The front patio view is fantastic just few boats on moorings and pastel coloured sunsets, all framed by coconut trees with the backdrop of Bonaire’s white beached, uninhabited Klein Island.
For a few dollars a local will ferry you across the 1000 meter wide Bay to Klein Island where you can lazily beach comb & explore its desolate and untouched white sandy beaches.
For the kids, there is a pool behind the Villa, and the beach in front of the house has no surf, (it’s the leeward side of the island) and no strong current to fight as well.
For exploring the island, a rental car, quad, scooter or bikes can be rented to enjoy the warm sunshine and predominant trade winds. We usually rent a scooter from Bonaire scooters; for an average 20$ to $35 per day for a weekly rental. Scooters are safe as no one drives very fast and there is virtually no traffic, only one or two traffic lights on the whole quiet little island.

The vrbo satellite location is a tad inaccurate as the villa is right on the ocean (see Google Earth).
For windsurfers, Lac Bay is a 20-minute ride from the Villa. One of the best locations in the world to get your ride on, Bonaire’s Lac Bay produces many of the top pro windsurfers on the planet. Lac Bay’s azure clear water, flat and shallow, along with its friendly white sandy bottom and famously consistent sea breezes, make it the ideal place to perfect your jibes and freestyle moves. That’s why it's called Jibe City.
You may also enjoy kitesurfing (we offer a 10% discount voucher at Bonaire Kitesurfing) and renting SUP’s (stand up paddle boards) for exploring Lac Bay. Every time we go on the water, we see amazing new representatives of the diverse collection of wildlife in the ocean.
The majority of the island is undeveloped with the north end protected as a national park. The island is home to wild donkeys, goats, iguanas & flamingos which have been surviving on the islands since it was first “discovered” (while inhabited by local Indians) by the Spanish over 500 years ago. When you drive around, make sure to bring leftovers and feed the wild donkeys and goats roaming about.
Bonaire is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. It is peaceful and the antithesis of a tourist trap, unlike many other islands.
Enjoy your vacation !
