About the property

Four Bedroom, 3.5 Bathrooms Ocean View

Welcome to Villa Olana Del Sol Bonaire. The name of our villa is the same name of a beautiful castle in upstate New York, so in honor of our favorite place we named our villa in Bonaire, which means Castle by the Sun.

The villa is five minutes north of the island's main town of Kralendijk in the upscale neighborhood of Sabadeco, it is perfect for a family or group of friends. Our Villa is just two blocks off the shore in a very private spacious yard.

The large beautifully landscaped garden and quiet neighborhood affords privacy and relaxation that cannot be found in the busier resort areas. It is located near several dive sites, two blocks from the ocean and provides a wonderful view of the Caribbean and the island of Klein Bonaire.

We offer a very private and luxurious villa. With your own swimming pool, large sun deck with furnished sitting area, amazing view of Klein Bonaire and the ocean, and outdoor dining, you will find it a wonderful place to spend your holiday.

When you reserve Villa Olana del sol, you will be our exclusive guests. The rates are determined based on the bedrooms you will be using, the property and all its amenities will be for your use only.

From a romantic getaway for 2 to a family vacation or group of divers, this property has something for everyone

The home comfortably sleeps eight in four air-conditioned bedrooms. Three bedrooms have king size beds, one with 2 twin beds. There is the very large master bedroom with flat screen t.v. and dvd player and another bedroom with the two twin size beds on the one side of the house. On the other side of the house is two (ensuite) bedrooms with king size beds and another powder room off the kitchen. Port a crib is available upon request.

There is a large living area with flat screen T.V., dvd player, cable TV, wireless internet, as well as fully equipped kitchen with a separate dining room area. The beach house has everything you need for relaxing by the ocean, and features a gas BBQ, stocked kitchen cabinets, sink, refrigerator. The laundry room is also located in the villa off of the kitchen area.

Our Villa is equipped with a private dive room and a rinsing tank for all water sport enthusiasts.

Relax around your own large & private pool with cushioned lounge chairs to enjoy the Bonaire sun. There are exposed areas for sunning, and extensive covered sitting areas when you want some shade. It is not necessary to heat the pool with the warm Bonaire air.

Relax or dine outside under the large porch, watch the sunrise and the sunset. Relax on the deck and be surrounded by all the tropical parrots that fly by.

Walk down a few blocks and access the secluded beach along Bonaire Marine Park sites of Andrea I and II. It’s your choice, enjoy lazy afternoons at the pool watching for birds, or snorkel in the incredibly vibrant underwater world. Easy SCUBA entry is just 30 seconds drive north and south from our home.

The palm tree lined driveway can easily accommodate 6 vehicles, with additional parking space available on the property or in the garage.

About Rose A. Checchio

My sister and I live in New Jersey, we are originally from upstate New York. My mother who is in the middle of this picture still lives in New York state. My sister and I are business partners and have been in business together for over fifteen years. Owning a home in Bonaire has been a dream come true. We love to come here with our families, and of course we always bring mom. I have been traveling to bonaire for 23 years and its a really special place to me and my family.

Rose A. Checchio purchased this villa in 2008

Why Rose A. Checchio chose Sabadeco

We love this villa because we can all be here together and still be really comfortable. It's great having 3.5 bathrooms! We can come for a vacation and really enjoy our home with our children and create wonderful memories....

What makes this villa unique

I love the location of the villa and the flow of the house. Having two bedrooms on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms on the other side gives you some privacy. I love the breeze that we get from the ocean, it comes right through the living room and onto the deck. We've watched some beautiful sunsets from the deck and it's a really wonderful peaceful feeling, very private.

Pleasant stay in Sabadeco, views, private, relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This villa is well laid out, great outdoor space, nice pool. No need to be inside with the spacious covered deck, or sun filled area around the pool. Nice views of Klein Bonaire and the ocean, especially at sunset. We had three adult couples stay, each had their own rooms with en-suite bathrooms, a privacy plus. Breakfasts at the villa saved money along with 'lunch' pool side (crackers/cheese, snacks) dinners out in town or take out eaten in the warm evening breeze. The neighborhood is a low traffic area, provides a safe, quiet area for nice morning walks to enjoy the variety of beautifully landscaped nearby homes. There is great snorkeling nearby as well as up and down the East Coast and the National Park.

Very nice

  • 5 of 5

Our villa was amazingl, lots of space, outdoor terrace was well equipped with very comfortable furnishings... loved the pool... only drawback was there wasn’t a beach, you would require a car to get to one of Bonaire’s beautiful beaches or to go into town which was approximately a 10-15 minute

drive..very quiet location .. while equipped.. the villa manager was very good if you had any problems or questions, he was just a phone call away and very accommodating. We would highly recommend this villa, but a rental vehicle would be required .

Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I have been travelling to Bonaire for over ten years. This recent trip was no exception regarding the fun times we had especially diving. Our accommodations were no exception either as Court 17 with it's magnificent views made every sunset a delight. The layout on the exterior and interior made you feel you were staying at a luxury hotel. A huge plus was the room dedicated to equipment cleaning and storing right near the garage. I highly recommend to anyone travelling to Bonaire!

Nice House, But We Had a Bad Experience!

  • 2 of 5

The house was comfortable. We liked having access to a washing machine and "wash out" room for dive equipment. However, we were robbed. The fence on two sides of the property is around 4 feet, is chain link and can easily be climbed. The safe we stored our valuables in was ripped out of the wall. The front gate to the property did not lock and provided easy access for vehicles to enter into the property. In addition, we had to deal with mice, which made the experience very unpleasant. It really was not a great memory for our honeymoon.

Beautiful Bonaire, Beautiful home, and, most of all "Beautiful People"!

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this beautiful home is just as nice as the home. Having to cancel the first year due to broken ribs, Rose was the very first to accommodate us with a stay later in the year once my ribs healed. After all, most people who come to Bonaire scuba dive as do I. After spending years in Bonaire, this is the first time we rented this home. It is as pretty as the pictures! It is so nice to dive and come home to a refreshing outdoor pool. And, as I dove in the morning, typically down south, I was able to stop at the home for lunch and dive the North shore in the afternoon driving right by the house on our way! Rose had arranged a rental car for us and also had given us her Manager's name who was there for us whenever we called as were the car rental folks. Very importantly, the home and surrounding grounds and neighborhood is very safe. The owner has installed an alarm system that is so tight, it's difficult to get out the home yourself when ready to leave!! We felt extremely safe in this home as one should feel in Bonaire. It had been years since our last stay and, Bonaire has grown tremendously. With growth, unfortunately, comes crime. But, if you alarm the house while inside (never had a problem but, did as we were told), and when you leave, you will not have a problem! Never leave personal items in view either in your home or car. This home also has a safe for your personal items. Not to focus on crime, but, it does happen and, when it does, it is typically because someone is not following orders. Right in this neighborhood,, down toward the ocean, is the dive site Barcaderra, which is convenient and beautiful! It is best to ask a dive instructor how to get there, for you would never believe it! The kitchen in this home is sufficiently stocked in order for you to enjoy a nice sunset dinner outside. We only used the master bedroom which was very cozy and the bed was extremely comfortable. All in all, the nicest place to stay on the island so far!! Thank you Rose for everything!

Very comfortable house. Great outdoor living space. The Owner is fabulous!

  • 4 of 5

We recently returned from a two week stay in this home. 7 guests the first week and 5 the second week. The house layout of very accommodating for a variety of guests. All the bedrooms were comfortable and clean.

The photos on this site are a bit dated yet give you and accurate idea of what you are renting. The local property manager was quite available and quick to replace a defective grill. With one call to the property manager, a new grill was delivered the next day and doubled as our oven!. The house is situated perfectly to enjoy the ever present "breeze" through the living and dining rooms. We enjoyed all our meals outside at a very comfortable, protected table overlooking the pool with the ocean a short distance away. The pool...we really loved the pool! Maintenance was done one day a week, all we needed to do was enjoy it. The outdoor furniture was comfortable.

You will find a great selection of pots , pans, dishes and serving ware in the small, but totally functional kitchen. The large refrigerator served our needs well. Having a washer and dryer was nice as there were no extra linens or towels. The dive room was a great addition. Being able to lock up our equipment was comforting.

The owner, Rose, is a dream to work with. She was quick to reply to multiple questions before we arrived and as needed during our stay.

We hope this house will be available to rent when we return to Bonaire, it worked well for us.

Here are a few suggestions to future renters:

Stop and purchase paper goods, as you will have enough for ONE day. There was no cleaner of any type left at the house, so if that is important to you...we left behind some bleach wipes and a spray cleaner for the counters and bathrooms.

We were quite pleased that mosquitoes did not seem to be as big a problem here as in previous rentals in the southern part of the island. We still used coil bracelets(left those for the future guests) and bug spray just to be safe.

We saw a couple mice in the evenings while we were outside, and fortunately we had already closed up the house. They were certainly not a problem, just looking for food.

The big flat screen TV was nice to have and we appreciated the variety of channels available.

Thank you Rose! We hope you will get to enjoy the sunsets at your house as much as we did. We appreciate you renting out this fine house and hope to return .
