About the Property
Ocean-front villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)
Villa Trepanier is one of only two houses available for rental in this unique area of the island located an 8-minute walk along the ocean front to all the main town has to offer: shopping, grocery and liquor stores, fruit market, video store, waterfront restaurants, bars, etc.
“Villa Trepanier” is a modern & large (2200 square feet), 3 bedroom house on the Caribbean Island of Bonaire. This quiet, modern, glass-walled villa is bright, very spacious, airy and located just 12 meters from the crystal blue waters edge. There is 4 ac units so one in every room of the Villa & the main living area.
Jossie, our Property Manager, will meet you at the airport (even if you rent a car) take you to the villa, 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 private 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.
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 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 cool 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 dot the whole quiet little island.
N.B: If the dates for Villa Trepanier are not available on my calendar, please email me (the owner): I will find a solution for your group, as I also have 2 luxurious & new ocean front condo suites, call Bonaire Blûe, look up VRBO 873877 both have : 3 bedrooms with there own bathrooms ( so 3 ) & a toillet. These units are adjacent to Villa Trepanier & Villa Vos 839271. All in a very safe part of town.
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.
A rider can learn just by watching the top pros perfecting their newest futuristic moves meters away.
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.
It's always a pleasure for me to talk about the villa & Bonaire.
I invite you to visit me website as well to have more information.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: 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.
Why the Owner Chose Playa, Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands:
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.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
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!
