Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a one week vacation at Casa de Sal. The owner was great to work with through emails and the property manager (Marlous) was very helpful during our week. The house exceeded our expectations. The location was second to none, which was walking distance to Good Friends Dive shop and several very good restaurants. With all of the wonderful shore diving and snorkeling throughout Bonaire, the snorkeling in front of the house was one of the best!!! We especially enjoyed a snorkeling trip to Klein Bonaire with Woodwind on their Catamaran. Every day included watching a beautiful sunset from the back porch! Staying in a house with a fully stocked kitchen allowed us to hire a cook for several evenings and relax after a day of fun in the water! (Try Jana Isaza with Freestyle Pop Up Restaurant.) We are already scheming to go back!

Casa de Sal a perfect home for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family (6 adults) had a great Christmas vacation at Casa de Sal. We had a fun time snorkling just in the sea just in front of the house and in many spots along the coast of Bonaire. A trip with the watertaxi to small Bonaire is also highly recommended. Luca (property manager) was very kind. He picked us up from the airport despite our 3,5 hours delayed flight and made sure we had a pleasant stay at our rental location.

Our family had a fabulous week and very much enjoyed our vacation home. We mostly cooked dinner at home, and relaxed on the porch (viewing the sunset!) after an active day snorkling, windsurfing, scuba diving or exploring Slagbaai National Park.. We are looking forward to come back soon :-) !

Great headquarters for a dive holiday!

  • 5 of 5

This was an ideal spot for an adult family holiday. Two of us stayed for the entire month and kids and partners came and went. The house is ideal for a relaxing and active warm holiday. With the diving at Captain Don's only two doors away and a beach for swimming even closer. We rented bikes, went windsurfing and took time to read and visit.

The house was exactly as pictured, clean, fully furnished and good cooking facilities (including the BBQ). Luca (the property manager) checked in with us regularly and was availble extra in the first few days as we settled in.The house is on a small quiet side street without a lot of traffic, feels very safe and private despite close neighbours.

If taking small children they would need to be on a tight rein as the shore edge is quite steep and dangerous for a toddler... probably OK for 5-6 year olds.Having a car was useful for groceries etc but if eating out lots might get away without one.

Would definitely recomend the place and have already booked for next year!

Christmas Bliss

  • 4 of 5

My family of four (2 teenage sons) spent a week at Casa de Sal. The house was even nicer than indicated in the pictures. Location was great. Short dive to town for groceries and restaurants. Far enough out of town to avoid traffic. Fantastic snorkeling and birding right at the house. Kitchen is extremely well equipped. I was able to make dinner at home several nights. House was spotless and the caretaker, Luca, was very helpful. Luca was waiting for us at the airport when we were two hours late and was available to talk to us Chrstmas day to organize our return. There is an excelllant new grocery store in town and a great gym almost across the street. Snorkeling is the best we have ever experienced anywhere in the Carribean. My only complaint about the house (otherwise I would rate it excellent) is the mattresses were uncomfortable and there was no washing machine. The owner indicated she was looking into replacing the mattresses, and as a result, I hope to go back this summer. Very special place.

Friendly place to be with a stunning view over small Bonaire and divers spot in front of you!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks in Casa de Sal. We just got back yesterday (sunday the 19th of august). We had a wonderfull stay in Casa de Sal. The house is situated near a resort, which is nice to enjoy the happy hours as wel as their (diving) facilities. The hidden beach near Casa de Sal is great and is a great way to explore the riffs which lay in front of the house. The house itselve is fantastic. The landlord Luca is very precise (in a good way) about your experience, so if anything is not in order he will fix this immediately. For exemple, we had a broken airconditioner and this was fixed within a day. In the tropics I have experienced this differently.... Luca is a nice and easy going landlord, who dropped by several times, just to check if everything is ok. Good service so!

We enjoyed fantastic sunsets and rises (because of the difference in time, the first week we were very early) and used the BBQ (professional stuff!!) several times. Having breakfast, lunches and homecooked diners (or BBQ's) is fantastic and you just can't get enough of the view from the house. So we really enjoyed our stay and would tell anybody to go there without any hesitation.

Luca and Laura many thanks for your hospitality!

Thanksgiving Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 and sister's family of 3 spent the week of Thanksgiving at Casa De Sal. We had just certified two of our three children and two adults in the party. We wanted to dive alot and we wanted the experience to be easy and fun. Staying at Casa De Sal was perfect for our needs. Although we dove elsewhere on the island (at last count some of us made 18 dives that week), several were made right in front of Casa De Sal. Talk about easy. Put your gear on and hike 25 yards to the beach entry, swim out maybe 20 feet and drop. The underwater sea life was simply amazing (from turtles to lobster, hamlets, tarpon, etc.). Two night dives--rewarded with a spectacular octopus which we followed for 10 minutes. There were 8 of us and we lived comfortably in the house. We did a combo of meals in and out. We had two trucks for our gear (Buddy Dive right next door to rent gear and pick up tanks every day). The trip was simply fabulous. We also bonefished and did some horseback riding (trip a little long for us) and took a day to tour the island. Walking in the park was fun. We were in Bonaire in November. It gets hot by mid-day. Casa De Sal was great for our needs. We even had a resident iguana who visited daily. He likes grapes. The only downside were the night bugs so just take some bug spray. This was one of our best trips ever.
