LUXURY OCEAN FRONT VILLA! DIVE OUT THE FRONT DOOR! 8 MIN WALK TO TOWN!

Bonaire Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

!!!BEST OCEAN FRONT VALUE ON BONAIRE!!!

Villa Trepanier is also one of the only waterfront houses walking distance ( 700 meters ) from all the towns central action.

“Villa Trepanier”, is a modern 2200 square foot, seaside 3 bedroom house on the Caribbean Island of Bonaire. This quiet, modern, glass walled Villa is bright, airy and located just 12 meters from the waters edge.

Some of the best WORLD CLASS DIVING and SNORKELING in the world, can be enjoyed JUST 25 STEPS FROM OUR FRONT DOOR to the waters edge.

This WATERFRONT VILLA'S style inside is bright with clear pastel sunlight permeating the main living room and front porch, with lots of air flowing; clean and modern, with cool stone floors, leather couches and glass tables accenting the granite kitchen. The Villa has 3 bedrooms set up with queen sized beds, with the master bedroom having an extra single bed. So you can sleep 7 in 4 beds.

There are 2.5 bathrooms. No tubs. The master bedroom has its own private bathroom. The second largest complete bathroom is shared; communicating with the middle room (smallest room) and the third larger room. Both bathrooms have walk in showers.

The 3rd bathroom is accessable from the main hallway. This half bathroom has a toilet and sink only. There is also an outdoor shower on the patio for rinsing after a swim or dive.

For the diving fanatic, Bonaire offers some of the best diving on the whole planet. Just consider the area in front of the Villa, your own personal backyard aquarium.

The sea life is amazingly diverse right in front of the house in just 5 feet of water! I have even named our favorite fish that can be fed by hand, daily, while enjoying morning swims. (you will find some driftwood and sea glass artwork that I have made, that was inspired by my interactions with my local finned friends!) If you swim 35 meters out from the shore of the house, the bottom drops off quite fast, and turns into a wall dive pretty quick!

Magnificent soft hued sunsets are the evening norm. The quality of the light is very magical in Bonaire & can be enjoyed from the patio with a glass of wine in hand.

If you like eating fresh local fish, just walk a 100 meters down to the fishing docks and befriend a local fisherman.

The front patio view is of boats on moorings and pastel colored sunsets, all framed by coconut trees with the backdrop being Bonaire’s white beached, uninhabited Klein Island.

For a few dollars a local will ferry you across the 1000 meter wide Bay to Klein Island where you can lazily beach comb & explore its desolate and untouched white sandy beaches.

For the kids; there is a pool behind the Villa, and the beach in front of the house has no surf, (it’s the leeward side of the island) and no strong current to fight as well.

Villa Trepanier is centraly located north from the center of Kralendijk, the largest and main town on the island. If you don’t want to rent a car, all major daily activities can be enjoyed, walking distance from all of the islands mains shops, banks, video stores, cell phone stores, boutiques, wine store, waterfront bars, waterfront restaurants, supermarkets, outdoor fruit market (you can walk down to score fresh fruit straight off the boats from Venezuela) and even a little health food store.

For exploring the island, a rental car, quad, scooter or bikes can be rented to enjoy the warm sunshine and predominant cool trade winds. There’s even a place up north where you can rent land yachts and buggy around at crazy speeds. We usually rent a scooter from Jack at the “The Bike Shop” or Bonaire scooters; for an average 20$ to $35 per day for a weekly rental. Scooters are safe as no one drives very fast and there is virtually no traffic, only one or two traffic lights dot the whole quiet little island.

For windsurfers Lac Bay is a 20 minute ride from the Villa. One of the best locations in the world to get your ride on, Bonaire’s Lac Bay produces many of the top Pro Windsurfers on the planet. Lac Bay’s azure clear water, flat and shallow, along with its friendly white sandy bottom, and famously consistent sea breezes, make it the perfect place to perfect your jibes and freestyle moves. That’s why it is called Jibe City.

A rider learning can watch the top pro’s perfecting their newest futuristic moves just meters away.

I also enjoy kiteboarding and renting SUP’s (Stand up paddle boards) for exploring Lac Bay as it seems every time we go on the water we see another edition to the amazing diverse collection of wildlife in the ocean.

The majority of the island is underdeveloped with the north end protected as a National Park. The Island is home to wild Donkeys, Goats, Iguanas & Flamingoes which have been surviving on the islands since it was first “discovered” (while inhabited by local Indians) by the Spanish over 500 years ago. Each time I drive around we make sure to bring leftovers and feed the wild donkeys and goats roaming around.

The best part of Bonaire is that it is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. It is super quiet and would not be considered a tourist trap, like some of the other islands. (There is secure private underground parking attached to the back of the Villa for your rental car or truck packed with diving gear)

The locals are genuine, friendly and very laid back, not like the rest of the Caribbean where you have to be careful. The water is amazingly clear, bathtub warm and the local fish super timid and friendly; just take a piece of bread to feed them when you go snorkeling and they will be following you around like the neighbors dog.

Rental diving gear at the islands largest dive shop just 100 meters walk out the front door. We offer a10% discount on air.

Come on down and seriously chill out in paradise and load up on some well deserved Vitamin D. Villa Trepanier perfect for families: sleeps 7, (3 bedrooms each with queen sized beds and one single bed, besides 2 big couches). Best snorkeling.

Laundry token can be bought at the seaside front desk. Laundy machines are in a room adjacent to our underground garage.

I have been all around the world, 76 countries and counting! Bonaire is one of my favorite places and a very special island! Bonaire is quiet, very safe, the locals super friendly, gracious, respectful, making everyone feel like one of the FAMILY!. I love to Windsurf, Kitesurf and Snorkel (Bonaire, especially right in front of the house offers some of the best snorkeling in the world) and Bonaire offers awesome diving and snorkeling conditions year round. The temperature is stable mid 80's year round. The water perfect temperature ...

Edithe Trepanier purchased this villa in 2008

I wanted a Caribbean house that I would enjoy visiting when I needed to get away from the daily grind of life. Bonaire is always warm and my beautiful home is right 'On' the water. Villa Trepanier is less than 15 meters from the edge of the water; a short walk to all the main town has to offer, (I rarely rent a car-I prefer to go everywhere by walking or scooter; waterfront bars, waterfront restaurants and shopping. Some of the best snorkeling in the world. Also I am ex-pro windsurfers and the windsurfing in Lac Bay is awesome, with Bonaire producing some of the best windsurfing athletes in the world. Kitesurfing, windsurfing, SUping, snorkeling, diving, exploring, fishing, great restaurants and friendly locals!

I love the fact that you take a 5 minute cab ride from the airport, drop your bags at the door, slip on the swim trunks and can be snorkeling in 30 seconds of walking in the Villa-with our local tropical fish. The Villa is across a one way street from the water. I also love the sound of the waves, and enjoy watching the world go by from the front porch. Amazing sunsets from the patio. The light is very special in this part of the caribbean. Its a Tropical paradise. Best snorkeling on bonaire right out the front door. Dive instruction right next door at the largest dive shop on Bonire,'Dive Friends- (just changed its name form Yellow Submarine) a 30 second walk from our villa. The Villa is close to the best waterfront restaurants and bars all within short walking distance to our villa. Paradise!

Fantastic villa on the waterfront, close to everything!

  • 5 of 5
The villa was fantastic! All the modern amenities, and Jossie the property manager was very welcoming and helpful. You literally can SCUBA and snorkel right out the front door, and walk to town in a few minutes. Would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Stay & Lovely Villa!

Fantastic Stay & Lovely Villa!
  • 5 of 5
My family of 4 ( 2 teenagers ),and my mother, loved it ! It is centrally located and easy access to downtown 10 minute walk, and the ocean right at the door steps. Some of us took dive lessons, at the Dive Friends Bonaire next door, what a convenient set up for divers and ocean lovers !! And we got 15% discount voucher at dive friends form the owner agreement with the dive shop, Bonus !!
It also has the added benefit of a pool which was great to relax at after a day of diving, snorkeling & playing in the friendly ocean.
Being there a couple weeks, it was great to have a washing machine ( shared with other villa owner ) to keep up on laundry and then Bonaire's breeze to dry everything on the clothesline on the side porch . This property was perfect for quiet and still close to grocery stores and all great restaurants. We particularly loved Sebastian restaurant a bit south of downtown on the ocean, and it rains fish closer to the villa.
The listing and photos very accurately reflects the property. This villa was very clean lots towels & nice cotton sheet, as we where cooking for the family, the well equipped kitchen was a plus...nice local art too.
Jossie the property manager on site, met us upon arrival at the airport and ensured we had everything we needed, to get settled in and comfortable, and gave us a local cell phone - a pleasure to deal with. We will return for sure.-- Great value for the price !!

Mrs Caza and Family.

Beautiful Villa on wonderful island

  • 5 of 5
Went to Bonaire for a family wedding and enjoyed our stay immensely. The Villas was as described. It was close to town on a one way street across from the ocean. The snorkeling out front was beautiful and easy. The beds were hard as stated on other reviews but still nice for our group of 8 to have enough room to spread out and not wait too long for the bathrooms. It was great to have the extra 1/2 bath besides the two full baths. The A/C units in the bedrooms cooled them off so quickly. We were a little nervous about the required electric deposit when we arrived at the property to see a note on the A/C unit in the living room stating that it cost $8per hour to run. We only spent one day at the Villa during the day so mostly used the A/C units at night so we kept the usage under the allowed level for the week. We have made a few suggestions to the owner to try to increase the circulation by adding fans and to try to put in a few more blinds in the living area to cut some of the sun that comes into the beautiful glassed living room. We enjoyed staying at the house and how convenient it was to all of the wedding activities we had going on. It worked out well to have beds for 7 and one person slept on the huge couch to accommodate our 8 person group. We cooked just a few times in the Villa but that made it easier than trying to go out all the time for breakfast. We were out most days all day and then dinner with family in the evenings so we did not do that much cooking. The electricity did go out one day for a few hours and thank God it was not the wedding day that it happened. The Villa was well represented in all aspects and we so enjoyed our stay on the beautiful island of Bonaire.

Dive vacation

  • 5 of 5
We loved our recent stay in Bonaire and this villa was perfect. Parking right in front, a living room area large enough for 20 people it felt like! The rooms and furniture were all very comfortable. The view was the best thing though and close proximity to downtown and the dive shop! Not to mention the water 25 feet from the front door. The only thing I would recommend is bring towels. Each person was allotted one towel per the managers direction.

Great, Great week at Villa Trepanier

  • 5 of 5
My wife , daughter and I just spent a week at Villa Trepanier. We arrived on the Red Eye from Newark at 5:30am and were met at the airport by Baasje the property manager. Baasje couldn't have been nicer and he promptly showed us the way to the Villa along with some key landmarks such as the supermarket and gas station.
Bassje gave us a thorough briefing on the Villa along with some great advice on Bonaire activities and dining.
We were thrilled with the condition and location of the villa. There are at least 15 very good restaurants less then a 10-15 minute stroll down the walkway along the ocean. The dive shop was four houses away and it was an excellent company. There is a lot of activity along this road and there are some great tiki bars and outdoor dining venues.
The villa was well stocked with all of the typical culinary instruments and tableware. The rooms were all clean and well cared for. The view from this Villa is stunning and I had a few great nights chilling on the patio with an Icy Beverage while the girls prepped for dinner. We were very pleased with our stay and I can't think of anything we didn't like. Do yourself a favor and rent this villa.

Fantastic spot for scuba divers, snorkelers, adults and children!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic week in Bonaire, largely due to the villa we stayed in and the helpful suggestions the owner gave us ahead of time. The villa is located 10 feet to the water where we snorkeled and swam right in front of the villa. Also we did a night scuba dive right in front of the villa. While snorkeling right in front of the house the kids got to see an OCTOPUS (along with many other cool things). The scuba shop is 75 steps from the villa. The location was perfect. We got take out a couple nights utilized the great kitchen for many meals. I highly recommend this villa and this location. It was paradise.
