we a Belgian/Dutch couple with one 12 y/o build this house from 2008-2010. We moved here mid 2010. We decided to travel whilst the house is rented out .
hayte haakma purchased this house in 2009
The best spot in the Caribbean from what we have seen.
The clearest waters, the closest to sea wildlife and diving
ECO Style with ALL luxury high end fit out
We had a great stay at the Eco Beach House during 2 weeks in January 2016. The location is amazing, with just a few meters to the Caribbean Sea. The capital Kralendijk and sandy beaches are just a few kilometers away and you can find snorkel and dive sites just outside the house.
The beautiful house is very well equipped (incl a good internet connection) and a wonderful place to both stay at during lazy days and to return to after excursions on the island. We felt instantly at home and felt really sad when we had to leave.
The landlord made us feel welcome already at the airport. Throughout our stay he was only a phone call away if we had any questions and he stopped by regularly to make sure that everything was in order.
The house is absolutely gorgeous - pictures alone do not give it justice! We were group of three younger couples, and the house worked out really well for us. Each couple got their own bedroom and bathroom which was perfect. The master bedroom is much bigger than the other bedrooms, but that was not a problem for us. The views from the deck are breathtaking. We felt so lucky to look out over the ocean over a cup of coffee in the morning and watch the sunset while eating dinner outside. It really can't be beat!
Hayte was extremely welcoming. He picked us up at the airport, provided us with some groceries upon arrival, gave great recommendations for the island, and was very responsive whenever we contacted him.
We are all divers and took full advantage of the house's location. It's located right at the Punt Vierkant dive site - just wade into the water and it's a short swim out (shorter from the house than it is to the public!). We didn't swim to the Hilma Hooker, instead we opted to take the 30 second drive down the road.. We were able get there early to beat the rush and essentially had the ship to ourselves! There are two large tubs at the house to use for rinsing gear and an area along the side of the house to let it dry.
It was truly a remarkable vacation and we would return in a heartbeat!
"Awesome" by Anonymous says it all and we would like to concur with her comments as we were probably the next couple to rent his place in June.
Hayte is an excellent host and his son was an excellent problem solver as we tried to hook up our electronic gear to his network and TV. Any fear of renting directly from a homeowner proved unwarranted and the family hospitality was outstanding. Everything needed for a week's stay but the groceries were available when we arrived. The bottle of bubbly in the refrigerator was especially a nice touch - touche!
My wife and I are dedicated divers and have been coming to Bonaire since 1992 so beach access was our priority; and the oceanfront villa, with a constant cool breeze passing through the house, was the icing on the cake.
Some additional recommendations for food: Best Pizza in town? Go see Joe at Pasa Bon Pizza, otherwise known as Stoplight Pizza. Ask to sit by the table next to the frogs ...
Best steak in town? There are several but stop by Mona Lisa's with a reservation (they're closed on weekends).
Best Italian? And one heck of a wine cellar is Cappricco's. I'm addicted to their Lasagne.
Would we rent again from Hayte? In a heartbeat.
Take care Hayte, until next year ...
From the meet and greet to the end of this vacation was wonderful! The house was absolutely in great design and was extremely clean! Location was perfect, not to far from anything. When we arrived ,we were greeted by Hayte, the owner who picked us up at the airport in our convertible jeep, that we used for the week ,which was fun to drive all over the island in. The house was very well equipped with everything that you could possibly need . Also Hayte had snacks and beer , wine , coffee, teas, and water in the refrigerator when we arrived to start you off with. The drinking water was great ,filtered , we drink a lot of water , so that was well appreciated. Had a lot of other essentials that you would need,seasonings, plastic wrap, aluminum paper,shampoos, bug sprays,pretty much everything you could think of. The pool was a great added bonus ,as we spend a lot of time in it and at the house .He also gave us a cell phone to use while we were there ,which came in handy to make reservations for dinners, (which you need) and any problems that could have come up,
He was quick to respond. It was just so nice and relaxing we hardly left the house except to do short snorkeling trips and swimming at Bachelor Beach, which was really nice and close, only 4 minutes up the road. Mostly a divers paradise , but wonderful snorkeling also. We drove around the lower part of the island and saw the salt flats ,(very interesting) and then around up to where they do the kite surfing, (pretty cool to see), then up to Soroban beach. The house was really very close to everything. Oh can't forget the donkeys roaming freely all over the island ,really becareful at night ,as they pop up out of nowhere! Every morning was exciting getting up and looking out at the beautiful view of the sea and having breakfast out on the deck. Then go in the pool and continue looking out at the sea view, as the pool is practically on the beach. The restaurants were all fantastic ,ran out of nights to try other restaurants, but definitely go to At Sea, 4 Seasons, Ingredience, It rains fishes, Rum Runners Cappricco's, La Balandra, and ran out of time for the Patagonia for a great steak. Eddy's bar and grill was pretty good also ,they had a guy on the guitar that play some real good music with requests. Overall the trip was by far one of my favorites and the house , we do a lot of homeaway trips for the last 7 years and this house was wonderful! Thank you Hayte for everything!Hope to see you again!
We stayed in this house in October 2014 and loved everything about it.
It has everything you need.
From nice large bedrooms all feature very large wardrobes and airco, to solid furniture till cutlery and tableware...
This is a well equipped and clean house.
And then there is the view from the porch... amazing!
You can go straight into the sea from the terrace, hold your head under water and you're in an aquarium.
We made a trip to Sorobonne beach, Lacbaai to see the flamingo's, took the watertaxi to Klein Bonaire and went kitesurfing all just a few minutes away from the house.
The owner is very helpful and even gives you a local phone you can use to call restaurants or other services on the island.
We had a great time and will most certainly return!
I should mention right upfront the owner was a pleasure to deal with and I debated writing a review because I hope the house does not become too popular (sorry Hayte). The house was just as advertised with perfect shore access, a small pool that was clean and refreshing and a beautiful deck. The house is newer and in good shape with polished concrete floors (that become a little slick when wet) plenty of windows and a constant cross breeze. There is a nice flat screen tv, but I cannot tell you if it works because we did not turn it on during our stay (I would assume it does because everything else did). The master bedroom is huge and the other two are more than adequate. One has bunk beds that can be moved together to form a queen? The location just below the airport was convenient for all of the southern dive sites and the front yard reef was good. Would highly recommend and we will likely be coming back. We have been to Bonaire 5 times and this is now our favorite place to date. The place was perfect for 3 couples, would work for family with teens or group of friends. Would not recommend for very small children. Our group likes to cook and we found the kitchen to be adequately stocked even without and oven. There is a six burner gas stove, a large toaster oven and gas grill that served our needs perfectly.
Ocean life in front of your private beach. Dolphins, Barracuda, Lobster, Rays, Turtles, coral reefs. Zen type style home. A great getaway, 4 km from the airport, 5 km from town. Very quiet area. Very competative price for location and house.
