Why Priscilla chose Belnem
After more than a decade in the Indian Ocean, the Journey led me to Bonaire that i had already visited for windsurfing vacations. I fell in love with the island, and decided to invest my time, my energy ...and my money to build a new dream Oceanfront. Sharing this story is probably the best i can do to push people to believe in their own dreams !
What makes this Apartment unique
The sight of the pristine water right in front, at the first step inside the lodge will probably leave you breathless... The warmth of the wooden ambiance will balance with this so bright turquoise, and for sure it won't take you so long to feel at home and serenely wrapped to enjoy your vacations on "Beautiful Bonaire"...

Just like the pictures
House is beautiful. Never got tired of the view and the sound of the waves. Everything is well thought out & the location is just a few minutes drive from dive shops, supermarkets, the airport. Awesome view of the Salt Pier. Make sure you dive it!
You absolutely will not regret your stay here.
Priscilla was easily contacted and a very gracious host.
Thank you so much Jeff for your kind words :)
And sorry for late reply.
I really appreciated receiving you both this summer. You are the kind of guests we would like to know better and discuss more with :)
Anytime you might be back on Bonaire, the door is wide open for you ! Very kindly, Priscilla.
Perfect for us!
We recently spent a week in Bonaire staying in the “Pepper” Villa. We loved it! We had an amazing week snorkeling, diving, driving the island and eating at some really great restaurants. The Pepper Villa was top notch. It was just as pictured on the website and, in fact, was even nicer! We had plenty of space for all of our needs and enjoyed everything from the deck to the pool to the well appointed kitchen. We prepared breakfast and lunch every day at the villa and even cooked two dinners there. The sunsets were spectacular from the deck. Being new to Bonaire, we also came to appreciate the central location of the villa – only a few minutes from the main “downtown” area with it’s shops and restaurants, yet far enough away from town activity to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of the ocean, and in close proximity to all the great diving and snorkeling sites along the western shore on the southern end of the island.
Priscilla, the owner, really thought of everything one would need and enjoy on vacation! As previous reviewers have stated, she provides some food and wine for you upon arrival which was so nice for the weary traveler! We did stay in that first night and enjoy her provisions. She also provided a good deal of information on the island to get us off to a good start.
My husband did some snorkeling right in front of the villa and enjoyed photographing an eel and other fish in the coral reef. Most mornings we watched flamingoes fly by over the turquoise waters which was mesmerizing. We also saw a dolphin one morning from the deck as it periodically jumped through the waves.
We have so many good memories of our trip to Bonaire and “Pepper” was always a great place to return to after an active day. I wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else after our wonderful experience. And thanks, Priscilla, for creating this haven for travelers and also for helping us have an exceptional vacation!!
PS – Gorgeous moon over the water views in the early morning.
OMG ! That's a review !! :D
Thank you so much Kelly for such wonderful feed back !
I'm thrilled to read this great experience of yours, and so happy that i could provide you a little piece of it through the lodges :)
And i'm so glad as well that you could witness the FullMoonset above the ocean in the early morning before dawn. It's always a magical moment !
Of course, it will be a pleasure to host you again, any time you feel to come back ! Till then, take good care of you both ! Very kindly, Priscilla.
Our Wonderful Week at Pepper
This property is amazing in every way. Priscilla was at the airport to greet us and gave us a tour of the house before leaving. It is such a well maintained property The house is decorated beautifully. It is just like in the pictures. We liked having a restaurant right next door. We saw flamingoes fly by every morning. We also saw dolphins a few times right from the porch. The snorkeling right outside the property is not to be missed! We will definitely visit again. Priscilla and the Pepper property do not disapppojnt!
Thank you so much Dawn for this nice review ! I appreciate :)
So happy that you enjoyed the lodges, and how great that you could spot dolphins several times ! Seeing you all enjoying your time by the pool was so nice for me :)
You will be of course very welcome to come back here whenever you want ! Looking forward to seeing you again. :)
Very kindly, Priscilla.
Pepper Review 06/23/19
Wow! What an amazing property and even more amazing hostess in Priscilla. We had a wonderful stay diving 5 of the 7 days on the island. The kitchen was well stocked and made it easy to cook most of our meals at the house; she even provided some starters groceries/snacks which was very thoughtful. The property is also well stocked for divers, with a very convenient rinsing station, outdoor shower, places to hang gear to dry and even an outdoor closet to store gear. The new restaurant next door wasn’t intrusive at all. It was quiet and actually felt like a resort was next door.
Thank you so much John for kind words ! I truly appreciate. And i am really happy that you all spent nice and great moments at the lodges. Your pictures are really impressive ! You will be more than welcome anytime you want to come back; know that the door will be always wide open for you and your family !
Very kindly, Priscilla.
Just as posted and like other reviews, the house was a perfect place to spend the week. An unexpected bonus, we made new friends with those renting the other side of the house!
Thank you Linda for your nice comments ! It always gives me extra smile when i notice connection between both side's guests ! The world is small somehow, and nice coincidences sometimes create great moments !
Definitely it will be a pleasure to receive you back any time ! Very kindly, Priscilla.
We just completed a week long stay at Salt and Pepper. Priscilla took excellent care of us during our stay. She met us at the airport, had the fridge stocked with a few items and fresh fruit so we didn’t have to rush out to the store. The property is a slice of paradise. Everything is so well thought out. I love all the vignettes she has created with coral and sea shells. Priscilla promptly responded to inquiries and resolved any issues immediately. This truly was my best vacation ever and I can’t wait until my next Bonaire trip to book the lodges again! Thank you Priscilla for such a great experience!
Thank you so much Angie ! I am so flatered to read such comments, and also that it has been your best vacations ! Woww !! :) So happy to have participated in some way to make this week memorable for you ! No doubt that you will be whenever you want, more than welcome to be back !! Looking forward to receiving you again ! Very kindly, Priscilla.
