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.
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..
