Imagine... your home just facing the Caribbean Sea crystal clear waters with direct access to a small and hidden beach.
Imagine...diving, swimming or snorkeling off your own backyard or a short one minute walk to reach some of the world renown diving centers to enjoy the island best diving sites.
Located right on the ocean and with a private and large private yard overlooking the island of Klein Bonaire, Casa de Sal is much more than just 'the place' for swimmers snorkelers and divers. It is a private retreat for those who are looking for tranquility and spectacular sceneries.
Casa de Sal is styled and furnished in a clean and sleek design to provide a most relaxing while still active escape for the discriminating traveler.
The Villa accommodates up to 9 guests in its four air conditioned master bedrooms each one with its enclosed bathroom, offering a totally equipped enclave for a family or small group holiday.
Overlooking the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea, Casa de Sal also offers stunning sunsets and breathtaking views of the neighboring Island of Klein Bonaire and it grants direct access to a small, hidden white beach just a few steps away.
The ground floor configuration features one Master bedroom suite with enclosed bathroom, and a living area with a fully furnished open kitchen and a bathroom. The dining area is located on the outside wooden deck under the roofed lanai, an unique space to enjoy the majestic views and the gentle sea breeze.
The wide backyard ends on the sea cliff and is the ideal place for lazy and quiet sunbathing on beach chairs during daytime, cool moments at sunset and fun filled nights around the BBQ turning dinner cooking into pure relax.
An external shower, a rinsing tank and a drip-to-dry area will make life much easier for all these water sport fan guests.
Casa de Sal's House Manager makes sure that guest needs are consistently provided.
Our family (6 adults) had a great Christmas vacation at Casa de Sal. We had a fun time snorkling just in the sea just in front of the house and in many spots along the coast of Bonaire. A trip with the watertaxi to small Bonaire is also highly recommended. Luca (property manager) was very kind. He picked us up from the airport despite our 3,5 hours delayed flight and made sure we had a pleasant stay at our rental location.
Our family had a fabulous week and very much enjoyed our vacation home. We mostly cooked dinner at home, and relaxed on the porch (viewing the sunset!) after an active day snorkling, windsurfing, scuba diving or exploring Slagbaai National Park.. We are looking forward to come back soon :-) !
This was an ideal spot for an adult family holiday. Two of us stayed for the entire month and kids and partners came and went. The house is ideal for a relaxing and active warm holiday. With the diving at Captain Don's only two doors away and a beach for swimming even closer. We rented bikes, went windsurfing and took time to read and visit.
The house was exactly as pictured, clean, fully furnished and good cooking facilities (including the BBQ). Luca (the property manager) checked in with us regularly and was availble extra in the first few days as we settled in.The house is on a small quiet side street without a lot of traffic, feels very safe and private despite close neighbours.
If taking small children they would need to be on a tight rein as the shore edge is quite steep and dangerous for a toddler... probably OK for 5-6 year olds.Having a car was useful for groceries etc but if eating out lots might get away without one.
Would definitely recomend the place and have already booked for next year!
My family of four (2 teenage sons) spent a week at Casa de Sal. The house was even nicer than indicated in the pictures. Location was great. Short dive to town for groceries and restaurants. Far enough out of town to avoid traffic. Fantastic snorkeling and birding right at the house. Kitchen is extremely well equipped. I was able to make dinner at home several nights. House was spotless and the caretaker, Luca, was very helpful. Luca was waiting for us at the airport when we were two hours late and was available to talk to us Chrstmas day to organize our return. There is an excelllant new grocery store in town and a great gym almost across the street. Snorkeling is the best we have ever experienced anywhere in the Carribean. My only complaint about the house (otherwise I would rate it excellent) is the mattresses were uncomfortable and there was no washing machine. The owner indicated she was looking into replacing the mattresses, and as a result, I hope to go back this summer. Very special place.
We stayed for 3 weeks in Casa de Sal. We just got back yesterday (sunday the 19th of august). We had a wonderfull stay in Casa de Sal. The house is situated near a resort, which is nice to enjoy the happy hours as wel as their (diving) facilities. The hidden beach near Casa de Sal is great and is a great way to explore the riffs which lay in front of the house. The house itselve is fantastic. The landlord Luca is very precise (in a good way) about your experience, so if anything is not in order he will fix this immediately. For exemple, we had a broken airconditioner and this was fixed within a day. In the tropics I have experienced this differently.... Luca is a nice and easy going landlord, who dropped by several times, just to check if everything is ok. Good service so!
We enjoyed fantastic sunsets and rises (because of the difference in time, the first week we were very early) and used the BBQ (professional stuff!!) several times. Having breakfast, lunches and homecooked diners (or BBQ's) is fantastic and you just can't get enough of the view from the house. So we really enjoyed our stay and would tell anybody to go there without any hesitation.
Luca and Laura many thanks for your hospitality!

Our family of 5 and sister's family of 3 spent the week of Thanksgiving at Casa De Sal. We had just certified two of our three children and two adults in the party. We wanted to dive alot and we wanted the experience to be easy and fun. Staying at Casa De Sal was perfect for our needs. Although we dove elsewhere on the island (at last count some of us made 18 dives that week), several were made right in front of Casa De Sal. Talk about easy. Put your gear on and hike 25 yards to the beach entry, swim out maybe 20 feet and drop. The underwater sea life was simply amazing (from turtles to lobster, hamlets, tarpon, etc.). Two night dives--rewarded with a spectacular octopus which we followed for 10 minutes. There were 8 of us and we lived comfortably in the house. We did a combo of meals in and out. We had two trucks for our gear (Buddy Dive right next door to rent gear and pick up tanks every day). The trip was simply fabulous. We also bonefished and did some horseback riding (trip a little long for us) and took a day to tour the island. Walking in the park was fun. We were in Bonaire in November. It gets hot by mid-day. Casa De Sal was great for our needs. We even had a resident iguana who visited daily. He likes grapes. The only downside were the night bugs so just take some bug spray. This was one of our best trips ever.
Nine of us shared Casa De Sal - plenty of personal space. Common living room, kitchen, & lanai were perfect for gatherings where we all could catch up on each other's activities. The 3 married couples had the 3 upstairs ensuite (with bathrooms) bedrooms, while the 3 single women shared the large bedroom (also ensuite with its own bathroom) off the dining room. There was a 5th bathroom off the living room so no one had to go into anyone's bedroom. The photos are deceiving: yes, you are close to the water, but it's a 50-foot drop! However, just a short walk in either direction gets you to snorkeling or diving (both FABULOUS). Luca and Laura are the wonderful & attentive property managers. They picked us up at the airport, gave us suggestions for grocery shopping & other places. We also were given a cell phone to use (for free). We lost power at 4:30 a.m. one morning, and we called Luca at 7:00, and he was there at 7:30 with the Bonaire utility company. All was fixed. Then the LR A/C leaked later that day: Luca was there right away to fix the problem. We lost power at 10:00 the same night, and Luca was there with the Bonaire power company, & everything got repaired! Luckily, that one day was it on power drops/losses, but Luca was always there to handle the situations (propane tank for stove). The villa is clean, has plenty of room, there are TVs in the LR & each bedroom (if you have time for that!), & great areas to relax both in and outside. We used the outside grill once with no problems. Having the outside shower for cleaning up after scuba diving or snorkeling was handy. Note: Kitchen has just about all you need but no measuring cups (can't remember about a wine bottle opener). Buy bug spray -- you'll need it outside at the lanai (or at least we did the first week of June we were there). Ate out 3 times: Cappriccio's (more expensive, but one of the best meals we've had ANYWHERE), Rumba (family owned, great food), & the restaurant at Captain Don's (conveniently next door, good food). Recommended: half-day Bonaire tour (Voyager Events); 2-hour kayak trip in the mangroves (The Mangrove Center). Pick-up/drop off at Casa De Sal was available with both businesses. Note: you are about 2.5 miles from downtown. Walkable (we did it once) but uncomfortably hot & humid, so not recommended.
Located right next door two of Bonaire's main Diving Centers, Casa de Sal stands at a short distance from some of the most reknown Restaurants.
Grocery stores are also conveniently located just a few steps away.
