Casa Presioso is a beautiful two-story house on a private cul-de-sac in Santa Barbara on the island of Bonaire in the Dutch Caribbean (former Netherlands Antilles). Being built on the hill, it has a spectacular free panoramic view overlooking the ocean, Kralendijk and the islet Klein Bonaire.
Relax in the private pool with spacious sundeck, lie back in the lush cushions of our lounge area on the porch, or enjoy the serenity of every-day's beautiful sunsets after dinner on the outdoor dining room on the second floor - the best way to conclude another day of diving or snorkeling!
Casa Presioso has room for 6 people. Bedrooms accommodate 2 persons. On special request we can put in an extra foldable bed for one extra person. It is possible to use an extra bed(room) for the cost of 1 extra person (to cover cost of cleaning, bedlinen and utilities); please notify the owner if that is you wish. For a baby or toddler (up to 2 years) there is always place available for no extra cost (if no extra bedroom is needed). If you require anything extra: we welcome special requests and try our best to fulfil them.
All bedrooms have A/C and traditional ceiling fans with light and remote control. The master bedroom has a king-size bed and private bathroom. The other two bedrooms have large double beds that can be separated into two single beds and a shared bathroom.
Casa Presioso is especially well suited and equipped for divers and snorkelers: on the side of the house you will find separate rinse tanks for clothes, dive equipment and underwater photo/film gear, as well as a (lockable) drying area.
Casa Presioso owns a 2014 Toyota HiLux double cabin (5p) pickup, which we offer our guests to borrow when staying at the house. The car will be delivered to you clean and with a full tank of gas and you simply return it with a full tank again. As borrower you only pay for the cost of full insurance and depreciation of the car: €39 per night of your stay, all-inclusive. You do not pay any additional taxes or fees a rental company would charge you. For comparison: commercial rental companies advertise with low daily rates, but then add the cost of insurance ($11 per day for CDW and $19 per day for full insurance), extra costs for extra drivers or child seats, 'location fee' for being for having an office at or near the airport (6% on total), VAT (6% on total) and government tax (an extra $4 per day), which results in doubling the cost they advertise.
For guests that lend our car, we are able to reduce waiting times after your arrival to zero: we offer our guests a free transfer from the airport to our house and back again. On arrival a taxi van will be waiting for you to bring you directly to our house, where you will be welcomed by our property manager. For your return home the same taxi mini van will pick you up from the house and bring you back to the airport. In case your flight does not leave for several hours, you may also choose to have the taxi bring you to Kralendijk or a beach club of your choice between our house and the airport, to enjoy your last hours on the island to the fullest (in which case you will organize your own last transfer to the airport). Casa Presioso will fully organize and pay this service for you!
The computer in the living room is installed with professional photo editing software and equipped with a card-reader that can handle all types of memory cards. Use it to upload your photos to your Facebook or Flickr account, or view your slideshow on the TV screen in the living room! Throughout the house you will have (unlimited) broadband WiFi access.
The free-standing villa has a large and beautiful garden (1088 m² / 11,711 sq. ft.) with palm trees, bougainvillea and oleanders that bloom the whole year through.
