'DIVING AT YOUR DOORSTEP' SEAFRONT VACATION APARTMENT RENTAL

Bonaire Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2nd floor apartment, 1 bedroom, 1 bath (Sleeps 2), huge seaview terrace

“Raising the bar for vacation rentals in Bonaire”, Beachcomber Villas is the ideal getaway for singles, couples or travel companions who prefer private and personal accommodations over hotels and resorts. This one bedroom apartment was recently completed in March 2011 and tranquilly furnished with a keen attention to detail. Located on the second floor above the owners quarters, the suite offers stunning views of the sea and of Klein Bonaire. Only the shoreline – no roads or pathways – separates this unique property from the sea making it the ideal setting for vacationing in Bonaire.

With its stunning views, optimal location, and relaxed atmosphere, Beachcomber Villas is as unique in its offerings as Bonaire is in its diving freedom. Both are treasures to be experienced.

In the Apartment: The large kitchen offers a full size fridge and stove/oven, numerous small appliances, as well as abundant wares and utensils. Sleep in optimal comfort with the ocean breezes and ceiling fans, or with air conditioning, on the pillow-top 19” queen mattresses fitted with deluxe bedding. The walk-in closet is generous enough to stow your clothes and luggage, and you can keep your belongings protected in the large personal safe. Enjoy some down time inside while being entertained with more than 70 cable channels on the flat screen TV or with your own iPOD playing through the stereo. Spend a little of your surface interval surfing the internet wirelessly from the garden, the seaside terrace, or the 500 sq ft upper terrace.

Dive, Snorkel, Swim: It doesn’t get any easier to explore the amazing underwater life! Calling to you from only 6 steps from the private seaside terrace gate where the famous and popular dive site “Cliff” will certainly give you the urge to submerge. Or, take a plunge in the freshwater pool surrounded by loungers and coconut trees only 100 feet from your door.

See our website (www.BonaireBeachcomberVillas.com) for information about our dive & snorkel packages and training programs – our partnered dive shop is a mere 500 feet away. 2 outdoor showers as well as gear rinse & secure storage facilities are on-site.

Location, location, location: Centrally located within the community of Hamlet Villa, the town of Kralendijk is just a 5 minute drive. The nearest dive & snorkel site is literally just right out the back door, or with the Villas central location drive in either direction to the north and south dive locations Take advantage of the Villa’s dedicated parking and walk a few minutes to pick-up groceries or to enjoy the night life and fine dining at Captain Don’s Habitat’s or at Dive Buddies.

We don't want another day to go by without thanking Leanne and Tim for a lovely holiday at their villa. From the moment we arrived, we felt warmly welcomed and cared for—the photos and description of the property are spot on. Even before we arrived, we were sent many emails full of details for travel and logistics and tips for packing and pre-planning tours. We absolutely loved the apartment's decor. The cool blues and pale cream walls, plus lots of white linens are very stylish and soothing. We found it so clean, comfortable and perfectly suited our tastes. The kitchen was well-equipped; we had everything we could possibly ask for. And with a view like that, what more do you need?

We loved that you could give us advice on all topics! Your combined expertise in the water adventures as well as life on Bonaire was so helpful. Wish we could have had longer chats with both of you on your gorgeous patio. We appreciated your special touches of hospitality above and beyond the definition of accommodation. We were happy that you shared your books and guides, sunscreen and mosquito repellent!

Your suggestion to eat at "Appetite" was such a grand experience; I'd go as far as to say it's one of the best restaurant meals I've had –EVER. Every aspect of that evening worked: superb food, professional servers, ambiance; it was truly magical. Thank you for sending us there.

It had been 13 years since we last visited Bonaire, and I'm happy to report that it has not been overrun and spoiled by mega-tourism. We will always want to return to enjoy the sea life and gorgeous sunsets, walks in the Washington Slagbaai National Park, and our new friends at Beachcomber Villas.

Luxury vacation unit with outstanding service!

There is nowhere else we will ever stay when we visit Bonaire. We are spoiled for life. We arrived to a beautiful unit with an ocean view, spacious closet, safe for belongings, luxury linens, impeccably clean, every kitchen appliance and tool needed for a week stay, warm showers, and plenty of room for all of our scuba gear. (note two people with 5 bags!) We opted to have our groceries waiting for us, for a nominal fee. What a treat to avoid several trips for all the items that we needed for a week. This saved us allot of time. This is a perfect unit for scuba divers because all the gear can be stored and cleaned on the first level, in a secure environment. The dive shop is a two minute walk to refill tanks. Tim is a Scuba instructor, so every day we got advice and instruction, because we asked. He was always there to help us after a tired day of diving to unload and clean our equipment. He even cleaned all of our gear when finished for the weak for long term storage. Leanne knows the best of every thing on the island. She can help to plan anything from restaurants, local events and happenings, shopping, where to fix things, where to get your car rental, etc. In fact, all of the details were taken care of by her for us before we arrived. She helped to arrange for our car, our restaurant reservations, our scuba rental details, the dive boat reservations, and anything that we could think of once we got there. The two of them treated us like family. When I was injured they even mended me with their first aide kit. There was plenty of privacy on the shared terrace. We only saw our neighbors twice the entire trip. The attention to details is similar to our stays at the Four Seasons, without the price tag. Leanne surprised Mike with two large slices of cake for his birthday, and left us a lovely card with a gift for our departure. I would repeat this trip as soon as I can. I would recommend this unit or the one next to it to anyone who enjoys perfection. There is a pool, but we did not use it. Our entertainment involved several dives and wonderful dinners each evening. Thanks for a vacation that we will never forget!

We stayed here for only four short nights - we would have been happy to stay for weeks! The rental is even better in person than in the photos - it's spotless, well appointed, with a perfect view, easy outdoor access, and Tim and Leanne (the owners who live on site) are both thoughtful and incredibly helpful hosts. Honestly, staying here made our vacation in Bonaire. We are snorkelers and found great snorkeling right out front. There is also a locked gear room, an outdoor shower, and a place to wash everything - all incredibly convenient. We would not hesitate to come back.

You can read all the reviews below and see how unbelievable the owners of this property are. An example: whenever we "newbie" divers returned with a truck full of wet gear, one of them would come running out, start unloading, and have the stuff all rinsed before we quite knew what had happened to us. The only thing: if you are an unfriendly person who wants to be left alone, I picture them standing in their door gazing out with big sad eyes because you will not let them look after you. So be warned.

The property's website will tell you all about the accommodations, and everything is as advertised. We found the smaller of their two apartments to be very comfortable for two people for a two week stay. It has a larger kitchen than the other apartment, and I liked the extra space for cooking and dining. Also, the terrace gets full sun much of the day, and the southern side gets more shade in the afternoon. We and our friendly and delightful fellow guests pulled all the chairs into the shady corner and sipped our beers (etc.) until the sun got low enough that we could sit and watch for the legendary "green flash" as the westering sun dips below the horizon. We all watched the sunset every day without fail, but I also loved drinking coffee outside in the cool mornings with the breeze from the east and the brown throated parakeets chuckling in the gorgeous tropical foliage. Bring your binoculars so you can watch the beautiful humming birds.

There is a dive shop location about one block away if you want to rent tanks and gear. The property owners work with the shop, so they can actually give you a package that includes accommodation and dive expenses, and you pay with one check.

If you have been to Bonaire, you know that the whole west side of the island is essentially one big dive site, although they have about 55 (?) dive buoys set up all along the coast. The "Cliff" site is right in front of this property and was as nice as any, and good snorkeling too. The entry is over coral rubble, so bring your booties.

If you go through the property owner to rent your truck, and you do want a truck if you are diving or a BIG 4-wheel drive vehicle if you are not, because the roads are often very rough, make sure you specify that you don't want the ORANGE truck. We did not like the orange truck.

Tip for pleasant dinners in the kitchen: we took a bedside table lamp and used it on the dining table as the overhead light is rather cold and industrial.

A slice of paradise with the best hosts you could ever have.

Hubby & I just returned from a 2 week vacation and stay at Beachcomber Villas. The property is lovely. You can relax on the terrace in the morning & enjoy watching the birds begin their songs as the sun comes up to brighten the sky. Evenings you can enjoy spectacular sunsets in the western sky from either your upper terrace or down at the seaside terrace. Of course sunsets come "sundowners" code for what ever refreshing beverage(s) you want to consume. Included most every evening is company and great conversation with others staying at the property and/or your hosts who live on the lower level of the property.
In the afternoon when the sun is hottest you can relax in the shade by the pool less than a minute away.
The apartment is very well appointed with a large closet & safe. Most every kitchen gadget or utensil you might need is there. I love to cook (yes even on vacation) so when I walked into the kitchen and saw a set of knives in a knife block I had to check to see if they were good or the block was just for show... Yippee real knives that actually cut things!! I knew that we were going to be well taken care of right then.
The bedroom/sitting area is spacious and with lots of windows, the ocean breezes sail right on through keeping the temperature at a comfortable level. There is A/C too if you want it a little cooler at night. Beachcombers is situated directly in front of "The Cliff" a popular dive site often recommended for great variety of fish, sponges and corals. It did not disappoint both for us as divers and for friends who joined us one day to snorkel. And.... it is only a dozen steps or so from the front gate.
Cleaning up your dive gear is a breeze; including an outside shower complete with shampoo, conditioner & soap for your convenience. An excellent rinse tank arrangement & place to hang your gear so the breezes dry it before hanging & storing your gear in their very secure gear room. Now cleaning your gear is your responsibility but Tim and/or Leanne are always appear and are there giving you a hand and inquiring on your dive adventures that day.
Tim & Leanne are incredible hosts - they genuinely want your stay to be memorable and if they can help out or get you something it is done. I commented one day I was having trouble locating Margarita mix, the next day as we returned Leanne had a container of Lime sherbet to help make the blender concoction just that much better.
If you stay you will not be disappointed!!
