Overview

About the property

Private Oceanfront House on top location, 2 Bedrooms , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Pelican Reef is a real beach house, ideally located on the fringes of Playa Lechi, at the very rim of the Caribbean Sea. The center of Kralendijk, Bonaire’s main village, is hardly a 15 minute walk away, as are most of the activities as well as the main restaurants.

The house itself, carefully tucked away in lush tropical greenery, could be described as casual and intimate. The interior is plain and simple: island style with colonial accents and an occasional splash of Caribbean color.

Being a private residence, the house is equipped with all amenities and comfort you could wish for during your stay.

Pelican Reef is all about easy outdoor living: a constant airy breeze provides the perfect temperature. The spacious porch (45m2) offers plenty of shade, there is a nice sun-deck (50m2) with loungers, deck chairs, and a hammock. Our swim dock allows you to slip straight into the turquoise Caribbean Sea to have a swim or have a nice dive at our 'home' reef Something Special.

But the main feature is without any doubt the peace and quiet this idyllic house has to offer... with your own private beach to enjoy fantastic sunsets and starry moonlit skies.

Frankly the only things to pack are swim wear and snorkeling gear!

Keywords: Beach House, Villa, at one of the best spots on Bonaire, close to centre of Kralendijk.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kees



My thoughts began as prose... but your photos awoke sensation and the words and images began to form more like a poem

I am not a poet but feel free to use my entry if it would be of help to you and PR.





Peacefully, tranquilly, the water gently serenades the night,

as light cast from the tiniest sliver of moon dances -Monet-like- upon the sea surface.

Surrounded otherwise in solitude and silence,

you now dangle your four legs from your pier into warm water,

You are sipping your Rioja, and your love - her Cognac.

You have arrived.

Pelican Reef!



You wish/dream time stand still, and, for a lovely week, it does.



And every year, you promise yourself more:

Knowing that a week is too short; indeed even a life…



Hush, silence; you fear to share this secret with your friends:

You want/need this place/piece of peace

Always available for you two..two alone.



Be still brain! Be kind.

Others need the sun, sea, surf, silence,

Moon, peace, solitude, tranquility,

Water, warmth, wonder, love…

Have a heart, share.

After all, Kees does..

Pelican Reef! .

Happy New Year!

Tim and Linda, 2010 à 2011

Paradise in Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Pelican Reef. Each day we swam and snorkeled from our very own dock, even did some night snorkeling, too.

The house was comfortable, clean and restful. If we ever go back to Bonaire, we will only stay here!

Perfect location, nice space

  • 5 of 5

My husband, friend, and I spent a week in Pelican Reef in early December. The location of the house was perfect for us, and the primary attraction. It is right on the water in a pretty good place for snorkeling and a great place for scuba diving and swimming. It's a mile from the center of Kralendijk, a nice walking distance for us, and just off the end of the promenade so we could take advantage of that while being secluded and private.

The veranda facing the water is deeply shaded, making it usable all day in the strong sun with a fan (the breeze form the east is blocked by the house and surrounding structures and plantings, unfortunately). The views are beautiful; we enjoyed the sunset every evening. Water access is trivial. The house itself is fine, the bedroom AC units work very well, the kitchen has a lot of equipment (if you want to really cook, bring your own sharp knives). The indoor furniture is not awesome. Despite accommodating four people, the living room only has seating for two. We would have liked a comfortable sofa in the living room for stretching out away from mosquitoes.

Communicating with Kees was timely and straightforward. He and Mark, the caretaker, were very friendly and helpful. We will definitely try to stay here again if we return to Bonaire, and this house makes us more interested in coming back.

Just as advertised, awesome

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Great snorkeling right out front. Easy walk to town. Kayaks were a lot of fun. We never tried the stove or tv, but everything else worked fine. Day trips to the national park, lac bay and woodwind

Snorkeling were all fun. Hope to return to this beautiful island and villa.

Great Stay at Pelican Reef

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a wonderful week at Pelican Reef. We would definitely recommend this property to anyone going to Bonaire.

The house was very well equipped. We didn’t cook while we were there but did make use of the kitchen for cold breakfast and lunch sandwiches. There were coolers available for use which was very handy. There are well-fitting screens on all the windows and doors and a nice breeze blows through the house. We appreciated the gate and the alarm system and had no issues with security on the property. The house was very clean and the appliances were all in good repair.

We took advantage of being able to snorkel right in front of the house at Something Special. Water entry was easy and there was plenty to see.

The location of Pelican Reef is great. Of course, right on the water. Also, close to dive shops, restaurants, and shopping. Very easy to get around from there.
