Bonaire Villa Rental Photos and Description

On The Ocean, Views Of Klein Bonaire 4,000 Sq Feet. 4 Bedroom, 4 Bath

My Heaven, Mi Shelu in Papiamentu, is a stunning on the ocean five bedroom villa with direct access to a secluded beach and the Andrea II dive site. A vacation at My Heaven will redefine your meaning of pleasure, lifting it to “heavenly” heights.

My Heaven is a unique intensely private paradise perfect for two to ten. Located in the exclusive Sabadeco area of Bonaire, it may be one of the only large home on Bonaire with secure private grounds, a beach and direct ocean access. The 3/4 acres (3,000 sq. meters) of gardens planted with more than 1500 species of local and exotic plants provide a tropical retreat, screen the entire property from the public, and create a paradise of seclusion and beauty for your relaxation and rejuvenation.

Mi Shelu is a special experience, a way of living life as it is intended to be lived. With almost 4,000 sq. feet of room and more than 1500 sq. ft. of screened lanais, including a private lanai for the master bedroom, the spaciousness is sumptuous. The lanais wrap the seaside of the upper levels providing entertaining and dining space for you and your friends, the perfect spot for a cocktail and fun with spectacular views of the sea, sunsets, green flashes, and cavorting dolphins.

The upper level is also home to the 600 sq.ft. master bedroom suite with private lanai, an even larger living entertaining and relaxing living room, and a cook or caterer’s paradise kitchen equipped for all your entertaining needs. The upper level has wireless internet service. (The thick concrete of Mi Shelu does not allow the signal to penetrate to the lower levels.)

The lower level has two king bed suites or 400 sq. ft. each, a queen bed suite and a twin suite. All bedrooms in Mi Shelu have their own air-conditioner, and ceiling fans if you choose to sleep with the beautiful Bonaire breezes. The rooms are furnished with lovely unique appointments from America and Europe, en suite baths including European shower fixtures, sinks, toilets and vanities, TV’s, comfortable chairs, tables and desks. All suites have custom designs and furniture themes. The lower level provides direct access to the pool and security gate to the private entry to the ocean.

Mi Shelu is situated and designed to catch Bonaire’s tropical breezes. Mi Shelu has security systems, smoke and fire alarms, motion detectors, window and security locks. All lanais have multiple high speed high efficiency fans, even the second downstairs kitchen has ceiling fans so your poolside shade area is cooled down. ( There is an additional charge for air conditioning in the kitchen and living rooms.)

For your pleasure and entertainment there is a pool side kitchen complete with Weber gas grill, full size refrigerator, sink, and completely stocked kitchen with service for 20. For your entertainment pleasure there is a table for 12 in the shade and smaller tables and chairs for 10 in the sun around the pool. The pool and pool area provide privacy even from the beach while offering fantastic views. The large gazebo offers additional seating, shade and entertaining areas.

The pool has 4 in pool seats with fantastic 180 degree views of the sea, Klein Bonaire and Mount Brandaris. Gentle steps make pool entry and exit easy for adults and children.

Mi Shelu also has an outdoor shower for your convenience after a dive or before you enter the pool. There is a dive gear rinse tank for your convenience. There is also a clothes washer and dryer for your convenience.

If you desire there is an 2 person ocean kayak for your enjoyment. Please be sure to use the provided life vests. (Kayaking is at your own risk. Children must not use the kayaks.)

Please walk the grounds, smell the flowers, pick the fruit off the trees, cut fresh flowers for yourself, put an hibiscus in your hair. Please be careful near the cactus.

Additional Optional Services

We will arrange or help refer you for delivery and pick up of dive tanks, a personal food shopper, a caterer.

Our Staff

Our staff have been with us for many, many years. We trust and respect them as people and professionals. They know the house and grounds and will take wonderful care of all your needs.

Our manager has been a friend and manager with us for many years. He will meet you at the airport, show you to your car rental, lead you to Mi Shelu, give you the keys, a detailed walk through of the property, show you where everything is, show you how to work everything and answer all your questions. If you need anything you will go directly to our manager. (Local law does NOT permit the manager to provide taxi or taxi like service.)

Our pool man comes once a week and keeps the pool bright and sparkling. We believe he is the best on the island.

Our maintenance man has been a friend and with us for 15 years. He can fix anything. He was a key person in building Mi Shelu. No one knows it better.

Our cleaning team have cleaned Mi Shelu since the day it was finished. We know them and trust them implicitly. They will make sure the home is spotless for your arrival and will freshen the house mid week.

About Anna and Art Kleimer

We left the cold winters of Vail, Colorado to build our island dream home. We have been able to live full time on the island and enjoy many, many, special times in the home with family and friends. We built the villa in 2007 while living at our condo at Sand Dollar.

Why Anna and Art Kleimer chose Bonaire

It was a dream of ours for a long time to live on an island. We were lucky enough to retire 12 years ago and make Bonaire our life. We now have grandchildren stateside and visit them frequently..

What makes this villa unique

Directly ocean front. Walk to diving from home.

Artist and Craft supplies for the aspiring artists.

Private and secluded, watch the world go by.

Large enough for family gatherings.

Excellent place for families and divers. Wonderful balcony with mosquito net. Beautiful ocean view. Kitchen well equipped. We would go back. Close to town but very private.

Truly Fabulous Time at Mi Shelu on Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Bonaire was outstanding! Mi Shelu is the perfect spot to enjoy the magic of Bonaire. It is a gorgeous house in an incredible location. We enjoyed wonderfully lazy time around the pool, reading and chatting in various comfortable spots throughout the house, gazing out at the waters of the Caribbean, and cooking great meals in the well-adorned kitchen. The snorkeling in front of the house was also fantastic! It is truly a heavenly spot. I think the only thing lacking was a system to play music. We ended up listening to music on my ipad, which was fine, but it would have been nice to have some speaker(s) to connect to. All-in-all, we had a great time and I highly recommend this residence for a family or a group of friends. We plan to go back as soon as we can!

Owner's Response: Hi Andrew, Thanks so much for your lovely comment. There have been BOSE speakers in the Kitchen and there is a Boom Bucket by the pool, I will make sure they are still at the home and that our manager points them out to the next guest. We love our music too!

Excellent experience

  • 5 of 5

A joy working with Anna who truly wants you to have a peak experience.

Their villa was designed just for that as well. Veiw, security, convenience, and amenities were all top notch. The best I have encountered in the Caribbean.

Excellent place for families and divers. Wonderful seating areas, pool is great, small sandy beach - unusual for Bonaire. Bedrooms well equipped. Would go back. Close to town but very private

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay. Come back any time! The sandy beach on Bonaire is a rarity and we enjoyed many beach castles. It it so easy to enjoy the serenity of the home and go out for dinner, Since it is only 7minutes to all the restaurants towards town and only 3 minutes the other way to Hilltop restaurant. We appreciate your visit.

Wonderfull romantic property on seafront location

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property on seafront location with amazing oceanviews nearly from each corner of the house. Fully equipped that you can feel like at home. Size of master suite and generally living first floor + veranda is amazing and giving space for big family/group of friends or having woderfull romantic stay for couple. Private swimming pool in front of the house is not big, but enough for calming down, relax and watch the ocean. Very quiet area. The only unusual for Europeans is that building is not concrete or bricks, but this is holiday villa. Generally all house is very American and we liked it.

Location is fairly close to the city, however you just need it to make shopping or sit in the restaurant. Rent a car is a must, no restaurant or shop in walking distance. Dive shop is bit far, but you can visit them once and rent bottles for entire stay. One dive spot is directly in front of the property.

We rented private boat sometimes (you do not need license up to 150hp engines, however we are certifed and we rent better ones), this was another idea for having fun on the island.

Whole island is out of the typical tourist crowds in Caribbean beaches and hotels, can say it’s really Caribbean, and this property makes our stay even more romantic. We definatelly recommend.

Not a 5 bedroom house

  • 2 of 5

1 bedroom condo with 4 one star motel rooms attached, but separate. Must be within 20-30 feet of router for Internet to work. Only one of five burners of gas stove fully functional. Oven so old can not read dial and takes 30-60 minutes to heat. Microwave antiquated. No ice maker. Most shades on windows inoperable. If operable.privacy liner missing. Missing Tv, or remotes, or non-functioning remotes. Rats in laundry room. Other problems. Owner offered $500 refund, have not received check. Inquired re check, owner has not responded. Security gate not funtional by end of first day. Twin bed moved into family room for the week due to no airconditioning and lack of privacy shades in one bedroom. Owner did send repairman, he was there 5 of 7 days of our vacation at sometime during the day. For the most part the house needs work, some things need tone replaced, and the rat problem needs to be addressed.

Owner's Response: Dear Gwen, We are so sorry you felt that you did not have a five star experience at our home. Since 1989 we have welcomed almost two thousand guests, into four different vacation homes, and have always received 4 and 5 star ratings. We treat everyone who enters our home with love and respect. In fairness we wish to mention the following: The home and everything in it is only five years old and of the highest quality available. The router is the best offered by the service provider on Bonaire and reaches the rooms on the first floor and sometimes (as routers are known to do) the pool area. Icemakers are a rarity on Bonaire because the power company electricity is some times unstable. The instability of the island electric company, burns out the motor on ice makers. In fact most of the appliance stores do not even offer them. A certified air conditioning specialist periodically services all the air conditioners. Minor drops in efficiency are the result of issues at the power company. You are correct, and we are sorry the front gate motor malfunctioned after your first night in our home. Parts were ordered immediately and the gate is working. The privacy and safety of our guests is paramount. Perhaps because of the dense landscaping you did not realize the property is surrounded by 5-6 foot + security walls (1.5-2 meters) that are ringed with razor wire. Next to the wall is a barrier of nasty spine/sticker trees, cacti and shrubs. Access to the upper level of our home is protected by heavy steel gates. The lower level rooms have 1”, (2.3cm) thick solid oak doors with separate double locks. All windows have manufacture’s locks, additional security locks, safety bars, alarms and motion sensors. All windows are covered with screens, roman or roller wood shades and some including decorative drapes. Our home is on three quarters of an acre, (approx. 2,700 sq. meters), can only be seen from the sea and is shielded by hundreds of trees and shrubs, there is complete privacy. Before and after each guest the house is thoroughly cleaned, sprayed, and pest control products are applied. It is the tropics and directly on the water, everyone must be very careful. Your agreed upon settlement was immediately processed and we know you received it. We wish you love and happiness.
