Overview

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. …”

Our best VRBO yet!

  • 5 of 5
I promised a glowing review and I want to reiterate all that has been said. Two of the most helpful hosts we have ever had before. We even booked our next trip with them before leaving. Tim had dive tips and teachings as long as you had time. What a wealth of information! Leanne complimented him with her knowledge of the island (excellent directions) and anticipated our needs before we did. Happy hours were quite fun and Tim even came to our rescue when we killed the truck battery. Bonaire is a great laid back place with good food and definitely great people!

I could repeat all that is said before but won't - just try this place once - for us better than the larger hotels.

Home away from home!

I can not say enough about Leanne and Tim. They welcome you upon your arrival and make you feel special, important and a part of their family. From helping us track our "lost" luggage to loaning us a pair of shorts these two wonderful people take their hospitality seriously! Sunsets spent with them on the lower garden terrace, assistance upon arrival from a full day of diving, thoughtful bottles of fresh water for rinsing at the dive sites are all a part of their normal day's activities making your stay the best it can be. I would recommend this property to everyone...from the moment I was in touch with Leanne before our trip to the email checking on us part way through our trip home we felt welcomed and comfortable and genuinely cared for.
Before leaving on our dives we would hear "Happy Bubbles" sending us off, which put a smile on our faces, upon our returns the quiry of what great adventured did we have, Leanne and Tim are knowledgable divers who can answer your questions and share in the joy of an unexpected bioluminescent night dive, or the sighting of your first, second and third seahorse!
Thanks from the bottom of our hearts for making our pre-Christmas vacation so wonderful.

Highly Recommended!

  • 5 of 5
Our first visit to Bonaire was fabulous due to the amazing diving and Beachcomber Villas! Leanne and Tim are very warm, caring, trustworthy people who know how to treat their guests well. We would recommend Beachcomber Villas for the following reasons:
1. Our apartment was extremely clean. Not even a crumb in the silverware drawer.
2. The tap water is better than the Rockies. We drank gallons of it and wanted to bottle it up and take it home.
3. The books they have available (dive sites, fish identification) really helped us navigate/plan our dives.
4. The beds are very comfortable. Slept better than at home.
5. The snorkeling out front was a great way to wake up. Very easy to just walk right into the water.
6. Kitchen is stocked with everything you need (including starter groceries if you ask).
7. Tim's diving tip of the day made us more confident in our own dive skills. We came to Bonaire as amature divers (~20 dives total) and left feeling like semi pros. Listen to Tim, his diving background is ridiculous.
8. Leanne's knowledge of the island was extremely helpful. She told us about its history and also knew were to find our souvenir Christmas ornament.
9. Our apartment neighbors (Joe and Deb from WY) were hysterical.
10. Leanne set up all of our reservations from night diving to restaurant reservations.
11. Between 2 Buns is close and really really good.

Visit Beachcomber Villas, you wont be disappointed!

Excellent accomodations and hosts, right where you want to be!

My wife and I spent a week at the end of October at Beachcomber Villas. It was a great week. We stayed in the apt with 1 double bed. The apt was perfect for us, but what made the stay complete was the helpful hand of Tim and Leanne, the owners that live down stairs.

First the apartment. Very clean and comfy. Has a TV, internet, stove, oven, microwave and fridge. It has AC for nighttime use in the bedroom only--which generally is the only time you are there anyway, so that isn't a problem. There is a small ipod music player/clock radio, but it only works for the older ipod/iphone connections. The view over the water is fantastic, and literally you can dive right down the steps from the back gate. It is also a very easy walk from the villa to Captain Don's Habitat (an iconic dive resort) that has a great bar and restaurant. It is pretty much on the same property. The Dive Friends Bonaire dive shop is also on the same property, which is incredibly convenient for washing dive gear and picking up tanks, etc. It is located just north of Kralenjydk in Hato. 5-10 minutes from the most northern of the dive sites.

The only down side is a little lack of privacy. You share the outdoor balcony with the other apartment, as well as all of the windows are open during the day so you know who is in the building and coming and going. Neither of these are a big problem...just would want to know ahead of time.

As nice as the apartment was, it was complemented by the ever-present help of Tim and Leanne. From directions to the grocery stores, to restaurant recs, to dive shop assistance, to dive site recommendations, to equipment rinsing and drying at the end of the day, I cannot say enough about there help. They would give you as much or as little as you needed. We were first time visitors so we needed the help. Each sunset was spent with them sitting down by the water visiting and enjoying the sunset. Really great people.

All in all, a great place.Great location. Great people. Great vacation

Need a 10 star rating for this one!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Tim and Leanne are the most amazing hosts I have ever encountered and I have stayed at a lot of privately owned villas. Their knowledge of the island and diving was beyond our expectations!! Reservations for absolutely everything were made for us by Leanne; restaurants, dives, massages, etc. They also made sure we saw all of the highlights of the island and ate at the best restaurants. If it is your first time visit or your 20th visit you will learn from these two!! Tim's knowledge of diving and diving equipment was incredible. Being new to the island we were overwhelmed with the number of snorkeling and dive sites and I also wanted to make sure to find ones for easy access....Tim and Leanne were right there with lists and suggestions. The apartment was very comfortable with a gorgeous view of the Caribbean. We sat with them in the evenings on their veranda, sipped our drinks and watched the sunset. Amazing sunsets!! I can't say enough about this incredible couple and their beautiful villa. Thank you Leanne and Tim for making your villa our home for a week.

Another wonderful 2 weeks at Beachcomber Villas 23Aug2014-06Sept2014.

  • 5 of 5
We dove. We ate. We sat on the terrace for sundowners. Yet again, we loved our stay at BCV. This time we had our daughter and new son-in-law with us, so we occupied both apartments.

Beachcomber Villas is as described in all the preceding reviews. All of them are true.

As one would expect, the place is clean and secure, the towels soft, the hot water hot, A/C works, kitchen fully equipped, the beds comfortable, and on and on. It is no mean feat to accomplish this on a small island, and takes a lot of hard work to keep it so. Tim and Leanne do that work when you’re not looking.

Make no mistake: BCV is a special place, and it is special because of Leanne and Tim. They are two of the kindest, most gracious and considerate people you could ever hope to meet.

I wonder when they have a life. Seems like they always turn up when you might need a hand, or just to perform some small act of kindness, whether it is seeing us off in the morning (with rinse water in the back of the truck) or meeting us returning from a day of diving.

We’re usually pretty self-maintaining on Bonaire, but this time we left it in Leanne’s capable hands to deal with restaurant reservations, dive classes for daughter/SIL, and other activities. Everything went off like clockwork.

Tim was a bit banged up this time, with injuries to his arm/shoulder. I still couldn’t convince him to leave the equipment to me and Matt. We told him to “stop it” and he said it was his job to make our vacation as enjoyable as possible, in every way.

We were talking one evening about future trips to Bonaire. M & C being youngsters just starting out, I pointed out that there were many places to stay on Bonaire, some all-inclusive, at all sorts of prices that might make the trip more economical for them.

He said “Yeah, but they don’t have Tim and Leanne.”

I guess that sort of sums it up.

Thank you, Tim & Leanne, for sharing your home with us.
