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

great location

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed the house, and the short swim to the great spot for viewing fish. We also enjoyed some of the opportunities in the neighborhood - Bistro de Paris, Pizza, Between2buns, Sea Cow Snorkeling, Eden Beach Caribe Watersports, Yellow Submarine. The toaster oven wasn't working, but this is a minor problem. Its unfortunate Bonaire seems to have had an increase in petty thefts and crime.
The Playa Lechi wireless internet connection seemed weak at some times.

Perfect honeymoon

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. Such a beautiful place and what a great view of the ocean, even better than the pictures! We spent most of our week at the place lounging around, enjoying the view, snorkeling, and having barbecue. It was very private but when we felt like it it was in walking distance to the small town nearby which had plenty of restaurants. You could probably get away with not having a car and walking to and from the town all week but we did decide to rent one so we could explore the rest of the island. We saw the national park and jibe city. We loved bonaire and we loved this place and we would definitely love to come back again. Coming here is one of the best decisions I have made it was perfect for us!

The perfect tropical getaway! Private, quiet (most of the time, depended on what the neighboring renters were up to), great snorkeling/diving just off the deck. Wish we had 2 months rather then 2 weeks to stay. Enjoyed cooking in some nights and going out others. The house had everything needed for cooking, BBQ's, cocktails. The outdoor shower was great for rinsing scuba gear and ourselves after ocean adventures. Loved taking naps in the hammock! Even read several books (left some to add to the library of both English and Dutch Books). Spent our last evening snorkeling until the sunset and then going out to "Appetite" which was our favorite restaurant on the island.

Serene and Peaceful...

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just returned from our first visit to Bonaire and stay at Pelican Reef. It was everything we imagined and more! The house and surroundings are portrayed exactly as they are described on the website. Just as stated, Mark was waiting at the airport apon arrival and made us feel very welcome. The amenities were great and the kitchen well equiped. The crystal clear water is steps from the house and perfect for swimming and snorkeling. As we settled in to our stay we found ourselves not wanting to leave this little piece of paradise. Most nights we grilled on the patio and it was so serene and peaceful. We ventured into town for dinner a couple of nights and both meals were over the top! The walk was easy and very scenic. One day was spent exploring the island with stops at snorkeling spots and lunch along the way. We took in a full day of deep sea fishing, unfortunately on a very windy day, but managed to land a nice sized Wahoo and Barracuda. We are excited to return to this special place, it truly is a perfect getaway!

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5
We've stayed at Pelican Reef over the Christmas/New Year holidays for the last several years. We typically do not return to the same vacation spots repeatedly, but love Bonaire and Pelican Reef.

The location of the house is perfect.....right on the sea (and not too far back). It is off of the main street, but very convenient walking distance to town, restaurants and the Dive Friends (Yellow Sub) dive shop. It is conveniently located to grocery stores, diving (North or South), the airport and town.

What we like best is the outdoor living space. It is quite private. The driveway is shared with the neighboring house & apartment, but the back of the house to the sea is private for Pelican Reef only. The outdoor dining area, swim dock and gas bbq get a lot of use while we are there.

We mostly eat in and the kitchen is well equipped....full sized fridge/freezer, toaster oven, nice stove, microwave, dishwasher & all of the pots/pans/utensils you could need.

The property and service is exactly as described on the web site and we've never had any surprises. The driveway is gated and the house has a security system and safe.

Great Outdoor Space

  • 4 of 5
We were met at the airport by the house manager who also went with us to pick up our car and led us to the house. The house is very much as pictured on this site. The kitchen is well supplied and everything was nice and clean. There is not a lot of indoor living space for lounging, but you don't need it with the great space in the back - that is very much why you would rent this house. There is space for dining, a hammock, and several lounge chairs and umbrellas with nice cushions. There is plenty of space to rinse your dive gear and let it dry. There are kayaks available but we didn't end up using them. The reef "Something Special" is right off the back deck and is a nice dive, though with some current. We walked into town most every night, and it is maybe a 15 minute walk down the sidewalk.
The only downsides were the mosquitoes (OH MY!) and the cats using the "beach" area as a giant litter box. I always get some mosquito bites on vacation, but they were pretty intense at this house at this time of year. We used lots of bug spray and the bug zappers, but they were still thick. One night my husband woke up with 25 bites on his elbow! There are also three cats that live on the property (fed at an adjacent house) and while they are sweet and cute, cats and sand aren't an awesome combo. That said, the outdoor space and being able to walk out the back door for diving would be enough to bring me back.

Owner's Response: Dear Megan, thank you for your nice review.
Too bad to hear that there are some negative comments about the mosquitoes and cats.
The problem with the mosquitos is peculiar to a tropical island like Bonaire and therefor there are mosquito nets available if guests want to use them. I can permanently install the nets but not everyone wants this because in that case they have to use the AC and can't use the fan anymore. As for the cats, I can say that this "problem" should have been solved already, but it's not that easy to catch a half-wild cat, and I speak from experience :-) I've already caught two in the past and brought them to the shelter. One cat will stay because it keeps away the other pests on the premises. Thanks again for the review, it will help me to continue to improve the quality of the stay at Pelican Reef.
Kind Regards.
