Bonaire Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8 in beds, 10 with cots)

Villa Vista Mare is a luxury Mediterranean style ocean-front villa located in the upscale Sabadeco neighborhood on the island of Bonaire. From the moment you enter our home you get the sense of privacy and tranquility you deserve.

Villa Vista Mare is situated in a picturesque and mature tropical garden frequently visited by parrots and parakeets. The large main home (5,500 sq ft) and separate 2 story beach gazebo (1,000 sq ft) provide you with everything you need for an incredibly relaxing vacation.

The main house has four bedrooms (including the apartment) with private (ensuite) bathrooms, a gourmet kitchen, an exquisite custom bar with wine cooler, ice maker and beverage cooler, a large owner’s suite with sitting area, office, gym and huge walk-in closet, and an enormous covered porch for the ultimate in outdoor living.

We travel extensively, but our main home is Villa Vista Mare on Bonaire. We love to open our home to guests who appreciate luxury, privacy and tranquility. When we are on Bonaire you can find us scuba diving, snorkeling, playing tennis and photographing the incredible beauty of Bonaire. We hope you enjoy our home and the island we love, Bonaire.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2004

We spent 6 years designing and building our retreat on Bonaire. After traveling to many Caribbean destinations we chose to make Bonaire our home because of the incredibly kind and caring local people, world class scuba, snorkeling and windsurfing, limited rain and no hurricanes, great infrastructure and political stability.

Our home is not the typical vacation rental. It is our primary home, filled with high quality furniture, luxurious amenities and architectural details like solid Mahogany doors and windows, hardwood beams and hand hand-crafted Sonoma tiles. We designed our dream home so every element would promote stress free living. We hope you feel as at peace here as we do.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
Our first trip to Bonaire and we absolutely loved diving on this island. For our group it was a bit of a splurge to stay in such a large home, but we kept coming back to this rental because of the pool area, and we were not disappointed. The owner is wonderful to work with and everything is done to make your visit easy and comfortable. Loved waking up to the parrots, watching iguanas and lounging in the pool when not diving. Beautiful home, thanks for the great experience scott!

THIS IS THE WAY TO SEE AND DO BONAIRE!!!

  • 5 of 5
If you have a large group (there were 8 of us) you cannot beat this house to meet your needs for value and luxury.
I would stay here at "Scotts Dream" (this is written on a rock situated in a garden) the next time we come back to Bonaire because of the house and its many many amenities AND for all of the help and wisdom of Scott prior to our trip beginning.
This was our first trip to Bonaire and therefore we needed lots of guidance re: where to go, scooters, chef, car rental, what the house had, things to see, restaurants, etc, etc. Scott responded pleasantly to my many many questions. Thank you Scott.

We scuba dived 3 days (6 dives) while in Bonaire. If you need a great guide, contact Susan Porter, Susan is truly a sweetheart and so so knowledgable. Thank you for 6 great dives Susan.
We snorkelled several times just off of the beach in front of the house. Bonaire is the number 1 dive and snorkel destination, and I have dove from almost every island in the Carribean. The house has fresh water taps, buckets, hanging areas both front and back. Well done Scott, you thought of everything a scuba diver would need.

The house is absolutely gorgeous with so many areas for lounging, cocktails and dining, it was hard for us to choose a favourite area of the property, but I would have to say the Beach House at the pool. It has everything you could possibly imagine to make your stay a breeze, fridge, sink, dishes, BBQ, washroom, outside shower, so many loungers, chairs, umbrellas, etc, etc. I think I saw one lady and her dog go by once per day around 3 PM, thats it!!! So private and peaceful. Ooops, also saw the occasional snorkeler pass by.

Rooms are air-conditioned individually and get the rooms ice cold for sleeping. Main area is not air conditioned but you have the beautiful sea breezes going straight through the house.

Kitchen is FULLY equipped with TOP grade appliances, TOP grade cookware (All Clad) and more dishes and glassware than you could ever use. There is a fine dishwasher too.
We has a chef (Philip) come in one night and prepare a birthday dinner for my wife Bronwyn. All I can say about Philip is WOW, WOW, WOW. If you want an amazing dinner experience contact Philip Joukes, he and his assistant prepared a truly amazing 4 course 5 Star feast. My only complaint is that we didn't book him for more nights, stupid, stupid me. Don't make the same mistake I did.

Book this house, you'll love it!

AWESOME RENTAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
This beautiful home right on the ocean provided our group the perfect home base from which to explore Bonaire's amazing dive sites!! The owner and property manager were always available to answer any questions we had. The Beach House and pool (separated from the main house by about 50 yds/m) were perfectly located to enjoy a cocktail and watch the sun set!! The dive entry & exit right from the house was a little bit tricky, but the Andrea II site is only a block away, so no worries! You can cook (BBQ) and entertain right at home, or take a quick 10 min drive into Kralendijk for some fine dining at a number of different restaurants!

This was a very comfortable and safe property, and we would love to return someday!!

Ps. As this home is a little ways out of the main town (Kralendijk) we highly suggest calling Div'Ocean to get the daily air tank service; this was recommended to us by the home owner, and worked out perfectly, tanks were delivered promptly at 8:00 am every day (sweet)!!

VERY RELAXING TIME IN BONAIRE

  • 5 of 5
We usually go somewhere for the holidays, we have often cruised in the Caribbean, and last year our cruise included a stop in Bonaire for the first time and I decided I wanted to know more about that island, right then and there. So I started researching the perfect place for our family, 5 adults. I found Villa Vista Mare and from the first exchange with the owner I thought this was the place for us. And it was. The house itself is not straight on the ocean but the beach house is and we loved that. We enjoyed having our coffees in the tropical gardens, watching the parrots, the lizards and the iguanas; then we moved to the beach house for the rest of the day. There is everything one needs at the beach house but if you have forgotten something the main house is just a few steps away.
Diving is incredible just off the beach, the entrance to the water is a little difficult - it's not white sand beach like at other dive sites, but that's where turtles live. We saw all kinds of fish and the coral is beautiful. Other dive sites are very close as well.
In the afternoon, cocktail in the infinity pool watching the sunset.

The house is beautiful, the kitchen is fully equipped, beds are comfortable. It's located close to town where we had many very good meals.

Such a great experience, we have already booked our next stay.

BONAIRE VACATION 2012

  • 5 of 5
I have been to Bonaire numerous times over the past 11 years.  I wanted to bring my girlfriend to Bonaire so we booked a trip with my sister and her fiancée.
We all stayed at Villa Vista Mare and truly enjoyed every moment of our time there!  I have travelled and/or lived on many islands and my girlfriend grew up on an island so we understand island life and Bonaire offers a lot to do or nothing to do ~ your choice. We drove around the entire island and saw the donkeys and goats that roam the island and ate at many of the excellent restaurants including local, Italian and French cuisine.
Villa Vista Mare is a spectacular property that offers every amenity you could think of.  The house is nicely furnished and each bedroom is a private space with its own bathroom.  The bedrooms include air conditioners and ceiling fans as well as a flat screen TV and DVD player
While we ate out, we did some cooking in the kitchen which has a commercial stainless steel range and also took advantage of the two grills (one by the house and one poolside).  
The pool house/gazebo is the perfect place to hang out for the day.  We felt like we were at our own private resort with a beautiful salt water pool, lounge chairs, umbrellas, outdoor shower, refrigerator for food and coolers to keep our Amstel Bright and soda pop nice and cold!
We will definitely be back to Villa Vista Mare and highly recommend it to anyone considering renting a house on Bonaire.

Villa Vista Mare is located in upscale, quiet Sabadeco Bonaire. The ocean-side location has easy direct access to the beach and is on Bonaire Marine Park's Andrea site. Incredible marine life starts right off shore. Since our home is on the west coast, the ocean is usually very calm and great for easy snorkeling. Parrots are often seen in our yard, iguanas wander by, pelicans patrol, and sea eagles often perch between our home and the ocean. Sunsets are spectacular. Our home is in a very private and quiet location.
