Bonaire Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, Sleeps 8, Oceanfront, Amazing Private Dive Spot!

The three things we always dreamed of in creating a special home on Bonaire, were light, an oceanfront spot and an overall warm feeling to welcome our friends and guests. When we found the ideal location on Bonaire's Southwest side, we could make our dream come true.

Pure Villa Salentein embodies the true feeling of a pure Bonaire Holiday. Her stylish, yet robust interior is created by a world renown designer. A beautiful combination of linnen fabrics and warm colors that perfectly blend in with Bonaire's atmosphere of purity and relaxation.

From the palm leafed gazebo, hammock and lounge furniture to the high-class bedding and appliances... Our Villa Salentein will definitely make you feel spoiled and will offer all different people in your group the chance to make it their home.

Salentein is situated on one of the two most beautiful diving and snorkeling locations on Bonaire. Just enter the bright blue waters directly from your private terrace. Or enjoy the beautiful uninterrupted sunsets from your private pool or natural gazebo. The Belnem area is close to famous Pink Beach and a short drive from the white sandy beaches of Sorobon.

The villa consists of four spacious bedrooms with high-class bedding and three luxurious bathrooms. The gourmet kitchen and sitting area are all equipped with Viking appliances and designer lounge furniture.

For more families or friends traveling together, Villa Salentein can very well be combined with our Pure Villa Lareef which is located just a short stroll away.

For the management of our home we have chosen the wonderful team of Pure Villas.

Marloes, Suze and Iris from Pure Villas offer by far the most professional, warm and attentive service on the island. They know Bonaire by heart and will guide and take care of you from the first contact, till the moment you return home safely.

Everything is possible, form the planning of you trip, full gourmet catering by Chef Philip, Private diving arrangements to relaxing massages upon arrival. Combined with many special complementary surprises that will make you feel even more spoiled!

Send us the details and wishes of your preferred stay and their team will arrange all for you!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an AMAZING 3 weeks on Bonaire split between the SALENTEIN and LAMAN properties.

Both properties were excellently presented and accommodated our large group of friends brilliantly.

Salentein felt like a dream, the pictures don’t lie. We loved the easy access to the gentle (and extremely private) sea and although we are only snorkellers, everyday we saw turtles, rays, squids and heaps of colourful and friendly fish!!

Laman has a different but just as impressive feel to it, a little more expansive and laid back than Salentein which is probably more high end resortish.

But the most important and true differentiator with these properties is the service and attentiveness of the Pure Villa family!

We have travelled the world and stayed in some amazing villas and these are definitely up there with the best but what really makes this one of our happiest holidays of all time was the way that

Femke and her staff and the associated small businesses that they work with on Bonaire made sure that everything we wanted to do was easily and expertly covered.

They helped arrange snorkel guides, underwater photography lessons, private beach picnics, private Klein Bonaire trips and mangrove snorkelling as well as several private chef dinners at the villas.

Everything was done seamlessly and effortlessly to ensure we could make the most of our holiday time.

I whole heartedly recommend Pure Villa Travel and these properties to anyone who is interested in a beautiful, fun filled vacation with brilliant support services in easy reach.

Karyn and her many friends

Met our expectations and more!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful comfortable waterfront home! The 6 bedrooms are separated enough to give privacy and yet close enough to have the family feel we love. Our family has used VRBO now HomeAway for 5 years and love it. This home has a great pool, great view, easy access for snorkelers and divers down a ladder just past the pool. Although the washer/dryer was not what we are used to in the states it was sufficient to do small loads and we brought lots of dirty clothes home! We used a local Chef, Phillip and would recommend him to anyone, we used Leo@Flow for our caving and scuba and fluorescent night snorkeling, he also set up our kite boarding and Klein Bonaire trip and then there was Femke who greeted us upon our arrival at the villa saw that that we had everything we needed when we needed it. Including a van to pick us and our luggage up and take our luggage to the airport and meet us after lunch as our flight did not leave tiL 330pm and we needed to be our of our rooms by 10am to allow them to get ready for next guests. We were able to keep our rental vans until 130pm. Thank you Femke that was the best!!! We LOVED our stay and experiences in Bonaire and if welcome someday would love to return.

Fantastic villa for a corporate retreat

  • 5 of 5

Together with my fellow board members I spend 8 days in Villa Salentein to discuss the future strategie of our group of companies.

This amazing villa is one of the most inspiring locations I've ever used for such a meeting. Because of it's tranquillity and the great staff that treated us extremely well we came up with many exiting idea's and ways to increase our customer value and the quality of our offerings.

Immediately after our return I asked my p.a. to make reservations for next year. Every euro we spend was well worth it!

We had a fabulous stay at Pure Villa Salantein!

  • 5 of 5

In a word – fabulous. My wife and I and our two daughters (ages 23 and 25) spent a wonderful week at Villa Salentein. It was a rare opportunity for just the four of us to spend time together and it turned out to be everything we could hope for. The Villa was the perfect setting.

Where to start? The setting is very private – we never had a sensation of having neighbors. The expansive curved patio faces out on the water, with a sweeping view toward Klein Bonaire. The overhanging roof provides great shade, and there are plenty of options for sitting or reclining. The pool is just steps away, making it easy to cool down. Just past the pool is a stairway and ladder down to the sea. Perfect for salt-water swimming, snorkeling, and diving, with plenty of life to be seen. On one snorkel we saw three incredibly small baby squid, smaller than a pinky finger.

Sliding glass doors surround the living room and when you open these the inside and out are completely connected, bringing a welcome breeze through the house. The bedrooms have views of the sea when the shade panels are slid out of the way. They all have air conditioning for comfortable sleeping, and the beds are surrounded by mosquito netting. We all slept well.

The location in Sabadeco is convenient for quick trips into Kralendijk. We had most of our dinners in town but ate the rest of the meals at the Villa. The kitchen has everything one could need. There was even a sampler of delicacies from one of the local shops waiting for us at check-in. The Pure Villa staff made recommendations for good dining.

Pure Villa arranges with Flow Bonaire to provide service for recreational activities. Leo, the owner of Flow, kept us stocked with SCUBA tanks at the Villa, and we did the fluorescence night dive with Leo and his wife Suz. Leo also led us on the cave adventure – well worth doing. I had been to Bonaire six times before and this was something I had never experienced. Leo also pointed us to other activities, like Sea Cow for snorkeling, and Jibe City for lunch and a windsurfing lesson.

All in all Villa Salentein and the support of the Pure Villa staff and Flow Bonaire were everything we might have hoped for. I am pretty well traveled, but I have been honestly telling people that I have never stayed in a place as nice as this. Hotel/resorts can have a lot to offer, but nothing beats a private villa experience like we had on Bonaire at Villa Salentein.

Absolute perfection for diving/snorkeling family

  • 5 of 5

Salentein was the perfect Bonaire retreat for our family of 11, including 3 adult couples and 5 children (ages 6 mos.- 9 yrs.). We have been coming to Bonaire for many years and now that we have discovered Pure Villa travel, we have become devoted fans of the owners and staff, and will always stay at one of their villas. Salentein was stunningly beautiful and perfectly located on one of Bonaire's most pristine reefs. We dived and snorkeled on our "house reef" daily, and the easy entrance made day and night snorkels a favorite pastime for the 5-9 yr olds. The kitchen has everything needed to prepare even elaborate meals, and all furnishings are elegant and perfectly suited to the villa. I can't say enough good things about the property, but it is the Pure Villa staff that sets it apart. We have come to think of them as extended family, as that is how they treat us. When they heard we had added a baby since our last stay, they wrote to say they would have a high chair and portable crib set up when we arrived. We are continually impressed with their gracious hospitality, and they have spoiled us for staying anywhere else!

Through Pure Villas we booked a two week holiday from 03 May 2014 in this beautiful villa Salentein. We were overwhelmed when we entered the villa: a very spacious and beautifully furnished place. The living room and terrace area seem to be one with the sliding doors, and was just breathtaking. The ocean view is spectacular, all rooms have this incredible view! Comfortable lounge beds on the terrace and a beautiful, large swimming pool make that you don’t want to leave this place. Even dolphins paid us a visit every now and then. Salentein has a very high level of style and comfort.

The service level of Pure Villas is very high, with a strong personal touch: everything was taken care of, the fridge was filled, the beds were made, a clear manual for the house was available, and a list of where to go at Bonaire. During our stay Femke and Iris made sure that all of our wishes were taken care of. A private cook had been arranged to cook a very exquisite 4 course meal, and we could use the possibility of a relaxing massage in the villa, or a private diving instructor. There was nothing left to chance, the service level in advance and also during our stay was excellent. The villa is only 10 minutes drive from Kralendijk. The area was very private and quiet.

This vacation concept is truly exclusive and luxurious, and we think of this holiday as an incredible experience, which we will never forget, and would strongly recommend. Thank you for the excellent service and the very enjoyable stay. For our next trip to Bonaire we would certainly choose to stay in Salentein again.

70th Birthday surprise.

  • 5 of 5

My wife surprised me for my 70th birthday by taking me to Bonaire. I had no idea where we were going or that our children and grandchildren would also be included in the trip. Needless to say, all of them are what made the trip so special but the beautiful villa and the hospitality of the manager made it the trip of a lifetime. We were able to snorkel right off of the property, swim and relax around the pool and make daytime excursions into the countryside. The home was well decorated and very enjoyable and having six bedrooms allowed us to have plenty of room. All in all, it was a wonderful and memorable experience and one that I will remember for the rest of my life. Thank you Femke for all the special attention you gave us during our week there. You were super.



From the day I started planning this trip, (10 months in advance), working with the owner and manager was a total pleasure. They worked with me to help keep this surprise and to make sure everything went smoothly. Once we were there, Femke made sure that everything was perfect for our vacation. Her personality is perfect for this job. I've used Home Away many times and have always had good luck, but this is, without a doubt, the best experience we've had, and one we'll treasure always. The Villa is gorgeous and the views are breathtaking. Our grandchildren were taking pictures on their phones to send to friends back home. Three of them had never snorkled, but after a quick lesson in the pool, they totally enjoyed snorkeling right off the property and our 5 hour sail and snorkel trip to the marine preserve. We got notes from them after we got home saying that this was a trip they'd never forget.

Thank you, Home Away for another great stay and a vacation that ranks at the top of all our trips.

Warm regards, Sandi

The Caribbean island of Bonaire is situated just north of the coast of South America. It's close to Aruba and Curacao and part of the Netherlands.

Divers' paradise. Though you won't find miles of sandy beaches and endless palm trees, it has a unique pristine character. It is known to have excellent conditions for wind- and kitesurfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. In fact Bonaire is one of the world's top 3 dive destinations. The water is crystal clear, and there are dozens of dive locations around, many of which you can access right off shore. In fact, one of the best right in front of Salentein.

Where you see dolphins passing by, almost on a daily basis.

Bonaire has a tropical climate, 30 degr. C year round, with a steady cool breeze blowing in from in from the east.The island is small, with only a few main roads and no traffic lights. Bonaire's 'Washington Slagbaai Park' is a truly amazing nature park, with many white sandy bays and bright colored flamingo's in the wild.

Bonaire has a rich mixture of food and over 70 different cultures to draw recipes from. There are many excellent restaurants and a daily fantastic supply of the best fresh groceries.

The languages spoken on Bonaire are the local Papiamentu and Dutch. But also Spanish and English are widely spoken.

When repeat visitors are asked why they keep coming back year after year they say: 'it is the warmth and friendliness of the people'.
