About Lieke van Riel

My name is Lieke van Riel, born in 1979, happy with Sjoerd and together we have three wonderful daughters. I grew up in Waalwijk (Netherlands) with my parents, a younger sister and brother. Within this family, I have taken it upon myself to rent our house. The desire of our guests is the most important, we are flexible and direct mail and / or telephone contact that I have with our guests, I experience as very pleasant. Partly because of this direct contact we have several guests already received several times. I also would like to offer you a quote. Fill right under the box 'Contact the owner' in your details and I'll send you an email, without any obligation, a quotation.

What makes this villa unique

My parents have chosen a number of years ago, this house on Bonaire to enjoy, the sun, the calm, the sea, the pool, the atmosphere .. Since we have young girls themselves, my father made ​​sure that you also with young children can stay in the house. The terrace can be closed from the pool. The biggest advantage I find: The property offers privacy and shelter 1 to 10 people. It is fully equipped with bath towel to ice .. It is more than enjoy!

Very pleasant area, spacious house

  • 4 of 5

This is a house in a quiet area about 15mins away from the center of Kralendijk by car. The sea is accessibly with a 2 minute car ride or a 15 minute walk.

It consists of:

-main house (3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom with warm water, 1 bathroom with ONLY COLD water, 1 separate toilet, living room, fully functional -but rather old- kitchen)

-guest house (not included in the rent unless you book it explicitly)

-some sort of garage (not included in the rent)

-a pool

-a terrace and garden

-most windows do not have glass but have mosquito nets and wooden shutters

-more than enough towels

-beds are not made on arrival but you are given 1 set of bedding per person for a 1 person bed

Overall I would say:

POSITIVE:

-very nicely cleaned

-well maintained pool

-good area

-spacious terrace and living room

-friendly and quick person to help you locally

TO BE IMPROVED:

-1 bathroom (the one that is en-suite to the main bedroom) only has cold water (I’m not kidding, I asked)

-the airco in 1 bedroom is very noisy and the filters of all aircos need cleaning (you can actually see they are clogged)

-You will be presented with an electricity bill after your stay if you exceed the included amount of electricity. Although I understand this is part of environmental encouragement towards the consumer, the lack of transparency bothered me: The amount that is included is said to be enough for “normal consumption” but it was not enough to run 2 airco’s + you are not able to verify the meters at arrival or departure. We ended up paying about 15 euro/pay surcharge which I think will be average since I genuinely don’t think we used unusual amounts of electricity (lights off most of the time, 2 aircos at 22 degree celsius).

-some new bedding wouldnt hurt and perhaps maybe even splash out and provide enough of it to allow two singles to both sleep in a double bed (2 people means you get bedding for 2 single beds).

Overall: quite a pleasant experience (especially the outside is beautifully done) and i would recommend it, but be aware of a couple of silly inconveniences like only cold water in the en-suite bathroom, additional costs for electricity and the limited amount of bedding.

Owner's Response: Following this review, there is maintenance on the air conditioners. This will be checked regularly. Based on 7 adults and 3 childs, we measured the energy consumption in the house during our stay. These numbers have determined the number of kWh which is included in the rent. In all the years that we rent our house, this is the second guest who has to pay extra energy costs. There is plenty of linen available for a single bed and a double bed. I'm going to communicate better to our hostess on Bonaire. We thank these guests very much for this review. We can inform our customers even better.

Perfect home to explore Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

This house is the perfect home to stay if you want to explore Bonaire. Close to everything while located in a quiet neighborhood and built for privacy. Reneta and Mark where a phone calls away and close by to help us if needed. The owner was quick and helpful with the reservation details.

Would book again going in Bonaire.

Super woning compleet en op een mooie locatie

  • 5 of 5

We hebben met ons gezin, 8 personen, de meivakantie doorgebracht op Bonaire, in deze prachtige villa.

Wat we van tevoren hoopte werd volledig waar gemaakt, alle aangegeven voorzieningen waren ruimschoots aanwezig, mooi zwembad met voldoende schaduw mogelijkheden op een zeer mooie locatie, niet ver van mooie snorkel plekken, supermarkt en voldoende eetgelegenheden in de buurt!

Al met al een zeer geslaagde vakantie, voor herhaling vatbaar en zeker aan te bevelen.

WONDERFUL HOME! On the perfect island!

  • 5 of 5

The home is fantastic. Beautiful gardens, fresh coconuts, great pool, close to town...and Bonaire was an amazing island! Janny the care taker was wonderful. We had snacks and beverages when we arrived. She even left mosquito spray for us (which we needed). We never even turned on the TV...spent every night on the huge patio playing domino's. The house has all the amenities needed for a tropical vacation. AC in bedrooms, beach towels provided, screens on every door and window, kitchen appliances (coffee pot was different than we are used to), beds were decent, no warm water in master bath (but who wants a hot shower on a tropical island), no laundry but Janny knew where the laundry mat was, great neighborhood (we felt totally safe), and the pool! LOVED IT! Don't leave food or drinks out, the ants will find it! And on the last night we had a scorpion in the kitchen...The house is clean and secure but remember you are on an island with bugs. Lieke was wonderful to do business with, even with us being in the States. Thank you for a fabulous vacation, we will be back!

Prachtig huis met nog mooier zwembad!

  • 5 of 5

Ondanks de regen tien heerlijke dagen doorgebracht op Bonaire. Het huis is echt schitterend, met het zwembad als kers op de taart!

Elke ochtend begonnen we onze dag met een duik in het zwembad: zelfs om zeven uur 's ochtends geen moeite om door te komen! De avonden hebben we doorgebracht op de veranda. We zijn eigenlijk alleen binnen geweest om te slapen en te douchen (wat trouwens ook prima buiten kan na het zwemmen of snorkelen!).

Het hele huis is voorzien van horren en hordeuren, ideaal! Sowieso geen last van muggen in de slaapkamer door de ventilator aan het plafond (wij hebben de airco niet gebruikt, de ventilatoren voldeden prima).

Keukengerei was voldoende om goed mee te koken, maar het lekkerste hebben we gegeten van de barbecue!

Het huis is niet gelegen aan zee, maar er zijn enkele duik/snorkelplekken op loopafstand. Het is ongeveer tien minuutjes met de auto naar kralendijk, een kwartiertje naar het vliegveld. Een auto is dus wel handig om te hebben! Onze auto was hoog genoeg om mee door het Washington Slagbaai Nationaal Park te rijden, een prachtige dag uit! Mooie snorkelplekken bij de zoutpannen en rondom de thousand steps.

Om terug te komen op ons verblijf: als wij ooit weer terugkomen op Bonaire zouden wij zeker weer voor dit huis kiezen! Wat een tophuis, topvakantie, we zullen deze dagen nooit meer vergeten!

Car: recommended

Welcome to Bonaire! Bonaire is the perfect place to enjoy the quiet and beautiful flora and fauna, both above and below water. The island is one of the Leeward Islands near Curacao and is above the coast of Venezuela. Bonaire is a small island and is known to include the excellent opportunities for diving, snorkeling and windsurfing. Bonaire has documented more than 60 dive sites on the west coast and more than 25 dive sites around the island of Klein Bonaire. The beautiful coral gardens, steep walls and the rich marine life, Bonaire is a paradise for divers and by the ever present trade winds, this verdant island with windsurfers and kitesurfers also very popular. Bonaire has the reputation of a slow pace and very quiet, but the island also has a lively nightlife for young and old with nice tourist places to visit and restaurants of excellent class.
