We dove. We ate. We sat on the terrace for sundowners. Yet again, we loved our stay at BCV. This time we had our daughter and new son-in-law with us, so we occupied both apartments.
Beachcomber Villas is as described in all the preceding reviews. All of them are true.
As one would expect, the place is clean and secure, the towels soft, the hot water hot, A/C works, kitchen fully equipped, the beds comfortable, and on and on. It is no mean feat to accomplish this on a small island, and takes a lot of hard work to keep it so. Tim and Leanne do that work when you’re not looking.
Make no mistake: BCV is a special place, and it is special because of Leanne and Tim. They are two of the kindest, most gracious and considerate people you could ever hope to meet.
I wonder when they have a life. Seems like they always turn up when you might need a hand, or just to perform some small act of kindness, whether it is seeing us off in the morning (with rinse water in the back of the truck) or meeting us returning from a day of diving.
We’re usually pretty self-maintaining on Bonaire, but this time we left it in Leanne’s capable hands to deal with restaurant reservations, dive classes for daughter/SIL, and other activities. Everything went off like clockwork.
Tim was a bit banged up this time, with injuries to his arm/shoulder. I still couldn’t convince him to leave the equipment to me and Matt. We told him to “stop it” and he said it was his job to make our vacation as enjoyable as possible, in every way.
We were talking one evening about future trips to Bonaire. M & C being youngsters just starting out, I pointed out that there were many places to stay on Bonaire, some all-inclusive, at all sorts of prices that might make the trip more economical for them.
He said “Yeah, but they don’t have Tim and Leanne.”
I guess that sort of sums it up.
Thank you, Tim & Leanne, for sharing your home with us.
