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!

Beautiful Casa Esmeralda
We had a wonderful time during our 2 weeks at Casa Esmeralda!
This is a beautiful home, situated on a nice beach 10 minutes from the center of Kralendijk. Every need was taken care of and the owners went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our vacation. We have stayed at many luxury rental properties on Bonaire and this one is absolutely the best!!
Great location - very nice house
The house - Casa Esmeralda is a modern very nice house. We felt the location was excellent. Good snorkeling location and dive site right off the house. The outside seating area was everyone's favorite - very comfortable with a steady breeze and great view. The house and especially the kitchen is very well equipped with good quality items. The house definitively reflects an owner who has pride of ownership. We would highly recommend the house. The only negatives are that the two bedrooms on the main floor and the two bedrooms in the basement level have only one bathroom - not idea for adults. And the lighting in parts of the house is dark - we got used to it but it is a bit under lighted in areas.
Paradise! Best place to stay on Bonaire.
We just returned from staying at Casa Esmeralda for 2 weeks. As always it did not disappoint. This is truly the best place to stay on Bonaire. The open floor plan, every amenity you could want, the diving out your back door. What takes the experience over the top is its owners Jan and Bettina. They go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable and well taken care of without being intrusive. Other resorts on the island do not come close to the luxury and location of this amazing house. Can't wait to go back!
That about sums up our early January 2018 trip to Bonaire and our stay at Casa Esmeralda. First time in Bonaire and saw this house on VRBO. We are a family of 4 , including 2 teenage sons. This house allows 10 guests in 5 bedrooms but when I saw the photos of the deck and view (Pool table was a bonus) , this sold me to stay at this house. Email communication with Bettina was excellent prior to our stay. We had a 7pm arrival at the airport , grocery stores close at 8pm. She had stocked the frig with good and drinks to get us through breakfast and lunch the next day. Jan (her husband) was waiting for us the check us in and give a tour of the house when we arrived . They live right next door to the house , so it was great to have them near for any questions. The house is amazing, great breezes to cool the house , each bed room has AC if needed. My sons and I did the trifecta for Bonaire....SCUBA, Kiteboarding and Windsurfing. The house is close to all areas. It is close to town and all activities. We enjoyed being able to get out of town when the cruise ships arrived and felt like we had our own private retreat. My wife spent a lot of time on the covered deck reading and enjoying the views and using the pool to cool down.
they also have a bonus of having a local cell phone to use.
Can't wait to return. thanks -doug and kim
Perfect Family Vacation in Diver’s Paradise
My family and I stayed at this gorgeous home a few weeks before Christmas. We were greeted warmly by Jan when we arrived for a tour of the Villa. Bettina had stocked the kitchen with fresh foods and beverages for our arrival. Jan gave us spot on recommendations on diving spots, restaurants & things to do. We spent our days diving right from the private beach, relaxing on the spacious deck, swimming in the pool and watching the gorgeous sunsets. It was fantastic, we didn’t want to go home. While staying here, Jan brought us a tuna that he caught that morning for us to prepare for dinner. Their hospitality was unlike any that we have experienced staying in Villas all over the Caribbean. They made us feel at home. We are already planning our return.
Another Wonderful Stay At Casa Esmeralda
This is the second time that we have rented Casa Esmeralda from Jan & Bettina. On this trip, we brought our two children, my wife’s parents, my wife’s aunt, and a friend from Seattle. The house is very well maintained and has an incredible view of the water. Our favorite dive sites are on the south side of the island and we love being south away from town and everyone. Just far enough away to be away, but close enough to to run into town to grab groceries in 10 minutes. We will definately stay again. Jan brought us a Wahoo on Tuesday and we had fresh fish tacos and Wahoo steaks all week. They even took my father in law and friend from Seattle deep sea fishing on the last day. To top it off, they lets us stay until our flight left in the afternoon instead of making us check out at the normal time. Thank you again Jan and Bettina! We can’t wait to see you soon in our favorite place, Bonaire!
