Overview

Bonaire House Rental Photos and Description

Private Oceanfront House on top location, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Pelican Reef is a real beach house, ideally located on the fringes of Playa Lechi, at the very rim of the Caribbean Sea. The center of Kralendijk, Bonaire’s main village, is hardly a 15 minute walk away, as are most of the activities as well as the main restaurants.

The house itself, carefully tucked away in lush tropical greenery, could be described as casual and intimate. The interior is plain and simple: island style with colonial accents and an occasional splash of Caribbean color.

Being a private residence, the house is equipped with all amenities and comfort you could wish for during your stay.

Pelican Reef is all about easy outdoor living: a constant airy breeze provides the perfect temperature. The spacious porch (45m2) offers plenty of shade, there is a nice sun-deck (50m2) with loungers, deck chairs, and a hammock. Our swim dock allows you to slip straight into the turquoise Caribbean Sea to have a swim or have a nice dive at our 'home' reef Something Special.

But the main feature is without any doubt the peace and quiet this idyllic house has to offer... with your own private beach to enjoy fantastic sunsets and starry moonlit skies.

Frankly the only things to pack are swim wear and snorkeling gear!

Keywords: Beach House, Villa, at one of the best spots on Bonaire, close to centre of Kralendijk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kees



My thoughts began as prose... but your photos awoke sensation and the words and images began to form more like a poem

I am not a poet but feel free to use my entry if it would be of help to you and PR.





Peacefully, tranquilly, the water gently serenades the night,

as light cast from the tiniest sliver of moon dances -Monet-like- upon the sea surface.

Surrounded otherwise in solitude and silence,

you now dangle your four legs from your pier into warm water,

You are sipping your Rioja, and your love - her Cognac.

You have arrived.

Pelican Reef!



You wish/dream time stand still, and, for a lovely week, it does.



And every year, you promise yourself more:

Knowing that a week is too short; indeed even a life…



Hush, silence; you fear to share this secret with your friends:

You want/need this place/piece of peace

Always available for you two..two alone.



Be still brain! Be kind.

Others need the sun, sea, surf, silence,

Moon, peace, solitude, tranquility,

Water, warmth, wonder, love…

Have a heart, share.

After all, Kees does..

Pelican Reef! .

Happy New Year!

Tim and Linda, 2010 à 2011

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

From setting up the reservation through arrival we have great communication, plenty of information and assistance. Thanks Kees and Mark. The house has everything we needed to keep two teens busy - close to town, on the water, plenty of great spaces to hang out. Beds are comfortable and AC totally appreciated. Bathroom spacious with plenty of towels. Kitchen very well stocked (no veg peeler). Loved eating outside, comfortable with exceptional views. Be warned - the screens on door and windows are fabulous but there are still mosquitos a plenty outdoors. Sunscreen and bug spray were daily friends. The house is walkable to town, but for grocery shopping and exploring we were glad to have a vehicle. Truck worked perfectly to haul gear, get through the National Park and a scuba sites. Parking at house spacious. The secure gate at access road added peace of mind. Roads are rough - bike riding was a little risky. We loved that this is not your typical tourist hub, it was relaxing, people were friendly, it was quiet at night, but there were plenty of outdoor activities. We highly recommend Babajan's BBQ Restaurant - on the way to town and only open on the weekend. For snorkeling - water taxi to Klien Bonaire (sea turtles) and Karpata (north of town) were favorites. Enjoy.

Fantastic in every way

  • 5 of 5

Reservations and correspondence with the owner Kees were all handled clearly and promptly. Greeted at the airport as promised by Mark the caretaker. Mark had already alerted our rental car company that he would be taking us to get the car-we beat the line at the counter this way and that was much appreciated! Mark gave us a quick walk through the unit and explained everything we needed to know as well as giving us the house cell phone with the assurance that "if you get stuck in the bush and need help make sure you give me good instructions as to your location so I can find you!" Never had to call him but this seemed to sum up the great level of service we enjoyed at Pelican Reef. The house is very well equipped-from every imaginable kitchen gadget you might need ( we used the juicer everyday) to TV,DVD player and stereo on to kayaks, beach towels , two wifi options( one secure one open) even little things like suntan lotion, bug spray and first aid supplies were all provided. Beds were comfortable and linens were freshly cleaned. We spent quite a bit of time outside on the lounge chairs and eating at the great outdoor table. Night lighting throughout the well planted grounds gave Peilcan Reef an enchanted ambiance after dark. Located almost directly in front of the dive site Something Special diving and snorkeling is easily accessed and fantastic. We have stayed at several different hotels and condos over the last decade in Bonaire and Pelican Reef ranks at the top of our list for location,value and comfort. Many thanks and much praise to Kees on a house well done.

The Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5

We were fortunate to travel to the island of Bonaire for the first time last month. It exceeded our expectations in

every way. Staying at Pelican Reef was absolutely perfect. The house was very comfortable and welcoming,

the location was excellent - easy walk into town for dinner, centrally located for diving to the North or South and

what a bonus having a fabulous reef right off of our own private dock. We ended up diving and snorkeling Something Special numerous times. It was really nice having a very pleasant caretaker readily available to answer any and all questions, "thank you Mark" If you are lucky enough to visit Bonaire, treat yourself to a

stay at Pelican Reef, you will not be sorry!

Another great stay @ Pelican Reef

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Pelican Reef the last several years over the Christmas/New Year holidays.

We've looked around at other places, but have yet to find one that we think would beat it.

The location is perfect with a short walk or kayak to town, close to the marina and our favorite dive site just outside. Its also convenient to the grocery stores and to Dive Friends at either Yellow Sub or Hamlet Oasis.

We love the outdoor living space and cook nearly all of our meals in (and on the bbq). The kitchen, wifi, etc all worked well (I don't think we've ever turned on the TV). The grounds are well kept and we've never felt unsafe.

Already booked for next year!

A great beach house

  • 4 of 5

We were guests in the Pelican Reef beach house on our first stay in Bonaire (and first time in the Caribbean), and it was just the perfect welcome to the island. The house it's simply gorgeous, spacious and comfortable inside, and with a huge patio and private beach outside. We were enjoying our meals on the outside table with stunning views of the sea and Kleine Bonaire just in front, and sunbathing on the deck. We also enjoyed the company of Mamy the cat, but unfortunately we also had to deal with other animal guests (namely mosquitos) which were there in huge quantity (partly for the season and partly for the many plants in the garden which were acting as reservoirs). Mark was very welcoming and helpful at the beginning and the end of our stay as well. Will come back for sure!
