About Seaside Don

Seaside Curacao manages 5 of the Top 10 traveler reviewed properties on Curacao. We only mange homes in the tranquil Banda Abou region of the island, centrally located between the UNESCO heritage downtown, the airport and the Westpunt end of the island. Unbeatable location with an unbeatable villa and surrounded by the best beaches!

Seaside Don purchased this villa in 2001

Why Seaside Don chose Caribbean

(Don from Seaside Curacao writing here) Bonbini Villa has been the #1 villa in our family of managed properties for 3 years in a row! There is something about being nestled in the aerie of a large, private lot with sunsets over the Caribbean 365 sets a year, the trade winds, big skies and now with a 5-star PADI dive facility with excellent house reef AND a scheduled boat charter. After the dive or a day at one of the exceptional nearby beaches (3 of the best within a 10 minute drive) you can enjoy dining service at Karacter, just at the bottom of the hill or music on Saturday nights. Bonbini Villa is an exceptional house with exceptional reviews and we look forward to taking excellent care of you and your holiday! Don

What makes this villa unique

Private, tranquil, secure and safe with rare 180 degree big sky views of the Caribbean to the west.

Nice villa, beautiful view, not so private

  • 4 of 5

This was the first VRBO/Homeaway villa arrangement where I could not purchase the trip insurance or pay via VRBO. I was a bit uneasy about this, having been ripped off online many years ago in Hawaii, but despite my misgivings, it worked out - kind of! We had originally rented another villa in Cas Abou, but an owner family situation necessitated the cancellation of our stay at the last minute. Don suggested this villa as a substitute. He was really super in terms of making it up to us, and I really appreciate the things he did in that regard.

The neighborhood of Coral Estates in Rif St. Marie is a very nice neighborhood, away from the city which I like. But the online pictures somewhat obscure the fact that this villa is between two others that are very close by -- so close that I could easily see the next door neighbors and overhear their conversations. The plunge pool and deck feels like a stage for all to see! So, I have to say that I would not describe this villa as private or peaceful.

As it turned out, our next door neighbors around 9 every day so it was then the peaceful and private retreat we longed for, keeping in mind that you are in full view of people walking or jogging on the street below. The plunge pool was refreshing and the views of the sea were soothing, just as I hoped for. The sunsets were sublime -- Don confirmed that we were seeing the Andes Mountains as the sun set.

The kitchen had what we needed, and the living room and bedrooms were functional. The decor was very functional/minimal but clean. I agree with other reviewers about the fact that the beds were not the most comfortable. The bathrooms were fine and the showers were really great.

There is a resort in the development with two restaurants. Since I had a bum knee, we went there to eat two nights. I loved eating on the beach at Karacter, and the tasting menu at Korral was a special treat.

Brigitte was friendly and helpful. And while this is not the place I wanted to be in the first place, as I had told my friends, things have a way of working out......and I thank Don for his efforts to make that so.

Excellent all around!

  • 5 of 5

We've been traveling to Curacao for 10 years and love Coral Estates. BonBini Villa was exactly as described and the service we receive from Don and his team at Seaside Curacao goes above and beyond. Our flight was delayed and there was a chance we would arrive after the rental car offices were closed and Lisa from Seaside was ready to pick us up if needed. We were there for 3 weeks and the house cleaner was there every 4 days to change the linens and clean, it was great. I highly recommend having a meal prepared by "Dushi Lisa" their private chef, we did on our last night and it was delicious. I can not recommend renting from from Seaside Curacao highly enough you will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: We really appreciate reviews like this, from guests who have been coming to the island for years and return as friends. Just great! Thanks for taking the time to share your impressions. Big Sky views from the pool and private terrace, beautiful trade winds....great natural environment. Real glad you had a chance to try Lisa's cooking, she's the top service request we have and deservedly so! Next time you need to let Anouk's magic hands get a hold of your back! Have a great fall and we hope to take care of you, your family and holiday again soon! Don

Beautiful views, great relaxing by the pool

  • 5 of 5

Pros:

* AWESOME view from the terrace, even better than the pictures suggest. Few things in life are as conducive to relaxation and a sense of inner harmony as watching sunsets over the Carribean by your pool while sipping from a glass of chilled white wine!

* Excellent service from the friendly Seaside Curacao team. The reservation process went super smoothly, Don sent us a very helpful “big bad complete guide” to Curacao with all practical details + great tips for local restaurants / activities, when we arrived the villa was waiting for us with a fully stocked fridge, and Don and Brigitte checked in on us regularly to make sure we were having a great time – without ever being intrusive.

* The villa is in a secure, gated and well-maintained estate consisting mainly of luxury villas, with an excellent beach restaurant (Karakter) on-site as well. The villa is well-equipped and has pretty much everything you need (large American fridge with ice-maker, gas barbecue, strong and reliable wifi, air conditioning in all bedrooms,…).

* We loved the location towards the west side of the island. It’s very peaceful and much less touristy than the immediate vicinity of Willemstad and is close to some of the island’s very best beaches and scenic spots (for instance Christoffel National Park, Shete Boka National Park, the many old plantation houses,…). There’s some great restaurants in the area as well, ranging from fairly upmarket ones serving sophisticated Western-style cuisine (like Karakter) to quaint little eateries serving wholesome locally-inspired meals (we really liked E Lanternu and Trio Penotti). The local “Toko Williwood” does some really great food as well when they’re open for dinner (although we found service can be a bit hit and miss there).

(Slight) cons:

* Overall we had a fantastic time at the villa – but if I had to name one thing we were a bit less happy about, it would be the beds. Maybe it’s just us, but we felt that the mattresses (or perhaps it was the bed springs) were a bit too soft and “bouncy”. But again, maybe this is just a matter of personal taste (we do tend to prefer a pretty hard bed base and mattress). And in any case, we generally felt so relaxed after a day of chilling by the pool that we still slept pretty well!

Again, we had a really great time at Villa Bonbini and keep excellent memories of our holiday there. Ever since we arrived back home in rainy Belgium we’ve been telling ourselves we want to go back asap!

Awesome time!

  • 5 of 5

Dear owners,

We had an awesome time at the villa Bon Bini!

The view is spectacular, especially the sunsets.

The villa is nicely furnished and there is a bathroom for every bedroom.

On the porch there is a lot of space for a nice bbq, to read a book or for a refreshing swim.

We hope someday we'll be back!

Thank you for everything, with regards, Ellen en Bas

Amazing villa and view

  • 5 of 5

BonbiniVilla is situated at a well maintained and garded resort. Provided by all thinkable luxury like a big fridge with icemaker, microwave, oven, ceramic cooker, blender, dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, BBQ, flatscreen, extremely silent airconditioners in all bedrooms en free WiFi.

This very spacious Villa, the private pool and the surrounding garden are all very well maintained and clean! All three generous bedrooms are provided by their own bathrooms. Also very clean.

Villa and location are even better then the pictures on the site suggest.

The view to the sea is breathtaking. The invironment is one of almost serene silence.

At arrival we had a very warm welcome by Brigitte. She was awaiting us with cold sparkled wine, beer and lemonade. What a way to start our holiday after a long day travelling!

Brigitte is the property keeper with 24/7 reachability. Always friendly to all our questions.

In short: a superb villa at a superb location.

The restaurant and the accessory beach at the resort belong to the top of the Island.
