Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3.5 Bathroom, 10 Sleeps

You will not find a place closer to some of the best diving spots on the island. Punt Vierkant, the Lake, Angel City, and even the famous wreck of the Hilma Hooker are literally right in front of your door. From your beachfront terrace with private pool you will enjoy amazing sunsets, more often than not spiced up by flamingos and dolphins.

The property is located only 10 minutes from town or the airport, yet well away from the noise and hustle of tourists, airplanes and cruise ships. One of the world's windsurfing hot spots and spectacularly beautiful ecosystems, Lac, and the equally famous Kite Beach are both a mere 10 minute drive away.

This exclusive seafront location has its own beach and a selection of Bonaire´s most popular dive sites right in front of the house. The luxurious villa is maintained and equipped to the highest standard and is surrounded by a small but lush and colorful tropical garden with ample parking space.

The very spacious villa consists of three floors, and comfortably sleeps eight adults in four air-conditioned bedrooms with three bathrooms. The villa was specifically designed to let the ever present Caribbean breeze flow through the entire interior, providing a very pleasant atmosphere. All doors, windows, and shutters are protected by mosquito nets.

Access to the beach and sea is from the terrace. It is literally no more than three steps to the sea, so the dive sites are easily accessible to all ages. The house is equipped with an emergency generator in case of power outages on the island.

Enjoy Bonaire in secluded luxury, at the Casa Esmeralda!

Gorgeous Oceanfront Villa on Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

I didn't think it was possible for a home (and view!) to be even more beautiful than in the videos and pictures, but it is true. It feels as if you are living in a postcard! The owners were wonderfully accommodating; my large family arrived in the evening and Bettina went out of her way to purchase plenty of groceries for us so we didn't have to stress about finding food after our long travel day. This was a huge stress reliever. The home itself is spacious, and the kitchen is well equipped. My favorite spot was the back porch area; I made sure we were home for sunset every night.:) My kids LOVED the pool, they were in it at the start and end of every day. Additionally, the home could not be better situated, as it is close to a nice supermarket, to town, and only 10-15 minutes to Lac Bay for windsurfing. While my husband and I have been to Bonaire many times, this was the first time to bring the kids, and something we planned for years. This was a trip of a lifetime for us and for them. You aren't going to find a nicer house, a better view, or more accommodating owners in Bonaire. Highly recommend!

A Slice of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

The first week we were 8 adults, and the second week, there were 6 of us. From start to finish, we had a wonderful, relaxing, and comfortable vacation at Casa Esmeralda. There was so much room in the house, we never felt crowded. When we arrived, we were greeted by Jan who gave us a tour of the house and information about the island. The fridge was stocked with basic groceries (this is a first for us) to get us started. The house was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the outdoor living area was so inviting, we spent most of our time there. The kitchen was fully stocked with all utensils, etc. The pool was so inviting and relaxing, especially after a morning of diving. The house is right on the beach, and the sound of the waves could be heard throughout the house. The owners, Jan and Bettina were extremely attentive to our needs, and when we had a question, they were right there. They also respected our privacy. This house was a pleasure to stay in. We look forward to another vacation on Bonaire in Casa Esmeralda.

Incredible house on Bonaire!

  • 5 of 5

Paradise in Bonaire and this house checks off all the boxes to make a perfect vacation spot! The view is simply amazing with the ocean just steps from the house. A beautiful deck which we used everyday with a beautiful pool that we cooled off in after a day out exploring. We enjoyed cooking in the well equipped kitchen and then ate dinner under the stars with our family of 8. Nice big rooms, bathrooms and bedrooms. Every room in the house is comfortable with amazing breezes that come through the house all day long. Our family enjoys kiteboarding and the kiteboarding beach is very close to the house. A storage room in the lower level is perfect for all our equipment. We snorkeled in front of the house and enjoyed watching the sunsets and moon over the water at night. The owners were very helpful with answering questions and giving us suggestions. I would highly recommend this house for a fabulous stay on Bonaire!

Extremely satisfied vacationer

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We spent two wonderful weeks at Casa Esmeralda and would not hesitate to return. The setting is beautiful! We saw flamingos fly by in the morning, enjoyed dolphins frolicking another day, and always the divers going to Hilma Hooker. The diving is incredible right out front or at numerous other sites. The owners are responsive and helped us with finding a personal chef and advised on where to dive. The breezes layed down a couple days and they shared that this was unusual, suggested we try the east side, and gave very specific directions. What a great experience above and under water!

The house is wonderful as well. The breezes blow through making the temperatures and relaxing oh so easy. We enjoyed the most amazing sunsets of our lives and star gazing later in the evening while relaxing on the comfortably appointed deck. We played pool one evening and hooked our iPhone up to play music. I would highly recommend Casa Esmeralda.

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Esmerelda in February 2017. We were 2 families with kids ranging from 8-10 and 1 babysitter. The trip was fantastic and the house was really amazing! The outdoor deck was simply stunning - a great place to look at the ocean, and the sunsets. The 2 iguanas who visited us daily were also a special treat and let us hand feed them! The snorkeling outside of the house was fantastic and the truth was you didn't even need to get in the water to see parrotfish and angelfish swimming right by the shore. The house was well appointed with everything we needed for the week and if we had any questions Bettina was a huge help - she even was a savior when our luggage broke on the last day and she made sure to help so that we could get home safely. Our only watch-out is the mosquito but they are no worse at the house then they were anywhere else on the island - we just recommend some bug spray! The mosquito nets in the house were definitely a nice treat to help with that as well. All-in-all it was a truly wonderful vacation in a gorgeous home that is well taken care of on a beautiful tropical island. What more could you ask for?

Daydream come true, perfect view and house

  • 5 of 5

I booked the property after many views of the video and pictures of Casa Esmeralda while on mini daydream breaks. Day one, we saw flamingos fly by, dolphins off shore, and turtles, eels, parrot fish, in the surf below the deck. The deck off the master bedroom is great for viewing the fish below. The house is very well laid out and while we were only 2, I could imagine my extended family there with no problem and hope we will be there together soon. Because of the constant breezes, you are able to keep the screened windows open without worry of bugs. I especially enjoyed the crosswind in the kitchen while preparing meals and dinning at the table.

The location was great, easy access to all parts of the island, the grocery store, and town. We went snorkeling several times with a wonderful local guide, Renee. Jan recommended several options for dinning which were great; very impressed with the quality of food options, especially the food truck scene.

Jan and Bettina are wonderful hosts and respect your privacy. The kitchen was stocked with food upon arrival and could have fed us for the week. They also shared some fresh fish with us, which we BBQ'd on the deck. Thanks again for sharing you house with us!
