'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.

Guestbook comments from the owner
“…My wife and I had read about Beachcomber Villa’s, which is located in the Hamlet Oasis area. Wow! What a great place to stay. Leanne and Tim (Dynamic Duo) the owner are amazing people. From the 1st interaction via e-mail to our departure from Bonaire they were so helpful in everyway. The 1 bedroom upstairs unit we stayed in was clean and had so many of the little things that you always wish you had when staying in a condo. However the dynamic duo are really what makes staying their really special. The villa is located ocean front with great views from the upstairs deck which overlook the “Cliff buoy” the house reef just North of Buddy’s. This place is dialed in for divers. Take a look at the website and check it out. You will not be disappointed. Hopefully this info helps someone. …”

CONVENIENT LOCATION AND OUTSTANDING HOSPITALITY

  • 5 of 5
This is our second stay at Beachcomber Villas. Tim and Leanne are exceptional hosts. Excellent suggestions on restaurants, adventures, and snorkeling spots.
SO helpful on specific snorkeling info like how to clean our new wetsuits and
identification of unusual creatures we observed. The villas are quiet with an
extraordinary view. We enjoyed our meals out on the terrace. We'll return.

TO INFINITY.... AND BEYOND!!

  • 5 of 5
Prior to arriving on the island, Leanne was more than helpful and flexible in helping plan our travel for 2 weeks in May. When we arrived, Tim and Leanne greeted us with hugs, laughs, and a cold bottle of wine! We stayed in the single bed apartment the first week and the two-bed apartment the second week (my mom & I didn't want to sleep in the same bed for 2 weeks!). Both apartments are furnished with everything you need (&more!), and they even provide kitchen staples and all paper products for your stay. The gas grill and chaise lounge chairs make your private sun deck even better! We absolutely loved Tim's 'tips of the day', as he helped us so much with advice on diving. Tim and Leanne were so attentive to every detail, and they go out of their way to ensure your stay is more than wonderful. They open their house to you and make you feel so at home. More often than not, they were always jumping outside to help us load or unload our dive gear. In fact, during our sunset social hour, Tim would sneak away and put our gear in the gear room for us... I could go on & on about the thoughtful things they both did for us- I can't give away all their secrets :) My mom and I had the best time of our lives for those two weeks on Bonaire, and I am certain that out trip was 10x better because of our stay at Beachcomber Villas. We were already planning our next trip before we left :)

UNRELENTING HELP

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I visited Bonaire for the first time the week of 6/14-6/21 (or 14/6-21/6 for non-North Americans). The lessors, Tim and Leanne, proved to be always ready to share their expertise of shopping, quality restaurants, diving, and wildlife on the island. They were a tag-team concierge service quick to assist with dive equipment or anything else. We found the accommodations very clean, attractive, and orderly. Their knowledge of diving and drive sites on bonaire is encyclopedic. If you want to feel safe, informed, well-guided, welcomed, you could not do better than renting from this fine couple.

WONDERFUL IS EVERY WAY

  • 5 of 5
This was the best vacation!! The property is just as described. Location was perfect, in fact the best reef for snorkeling is just in front. Leann and Tim were great hosts - no request was to small or big for their immediate attention, from making dinner reservations and recommendations to setting up the perfect tour. Be sure to request her rum punch - best ever! I can't wait to visit again.

SUNNY SMILES GUARANTEED!

  • 5 of 5
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!

  • 5 of 5
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!
