About the property

Four Bedroom, 3.5 Bathrooms Ocean View

Welcome to Villa Olana Del Sol Bonaire. The name of our villa is the same name of a beautiful castle in upstate New York, so in honor of our favorite place we named our villa in Bonaire, which means Castle by the Sun.

The villa is five minutes north of the island's main town of Kralendijk in the upscale neighborhood of Sabadeco, it is perfect for a family or group of friends. Our Villa is just two blocks off the shore in a very private spacious yard.

The large beautifully landscaped garden and quiet neighborhood affords privacy and relaxation that cannot be found in the busier resort areas. It is located near several dive sites, two blocks from the ocean and provides a wonderful view of the Caribbean and the island of Klein Bonaire.

We offer a very private and luxurious villa. With your own swimming pool, large sun deck with furnished sitting area, amazing view of Klein Bonaire and the ocean, and outdoor dining, you will find it a wonderful place to spend your holiday.

When you reserve Villa Olana del sol, you will be our exclusive guests. The rates are determined based on the bedrooms you will be using, the property and all its amenities will be for your use only.

From a romantic getaway for 2 to a family vacation or group of divers, this property has something for everyone

The home comfortably sleeps eight in four air-conditioned bedrooms. Three bedrooms have king size beds, one with 2 twin beds. There is the very large master bedroom with flat screen t.v. and dvd player and another bedroom with the two twin size beds on the one side of the house. On the other side of the house is two (ensuite) bedrooms with king size beds and another powder room off the kitchen. Port a crib is available upon request.

There is a large living area with flat screen T.V., dvd player, cable TV, wireless internet, as well as fully equipped kitchen with a separate dining room area. The beach house has everything you need for relaxing by the ocean, and features a gas BBQ, stocked kitchen cabinets, sink, refrigerator. The laundry room is also located in the villa off of the kitchen area.

Our Villa is equipped with a private dive room and a rinsing tank for all water sport enthusiasts.

Relax around your own large & private pool with cushioned lounge chairs to enjoy the Bonaire sun. There are exposed areas for sunning, and extensive covered sitting areas when you want some shade. It is not necessary to heat the pool with the warm Bonaire air.

Relax or dine outside under the large porch, watch the sunrise and the sunset. Relax on the deck and be surrounded by all the tropical parrots that fly by.

Walk down a few blocks and access the secluded beach along Bonaire Marine Park sites of Andrea I and II. It’s your choice, enjoy lazy afternoons at the pool watching for birds, or snorkel in the incredibly vibrant underwater world. Easy SCUBA entry is just 30 seconds drive north and south from our home.

The palm tree lined driveway can easily accommodate 6 vehicles, with additional parking space available on the property or in the garage.

About Rose A. Checchio

My sister and I live in New Jersey, we are originally from upstate New York. My mother who is in the middle of this picture still lives in New York state. My sister and I are business partners and have been in business together for over fifteen years. Owning a home in Bonaire has been a dream come true. We love to come here with our families, and of course we always bring mom. I have been traveling to bonaire for 23 years and its a really special place to me and my family.

Rose A. Checchio purchased this villa in 2008

Why Rose A. Checchio chose Bonaire

We love this villa because we can all be here together and still be really comfortable. It's great having 3.5 bathrooms! We can come for a vacation and really enjoy our home with our children and create wonderful memories....

What makes this villa unique

I love the location of the villa and the flow of the house. Having two bedrooms on one side of the house and the other two bedrooms on the other side gives you some privacy. I love the breeze that we get from the ocean, it comes right through the living room and onto the deck. We've watched some beautiful sunsets from the deck and it's a really wonderful peaceful feeling, very private.

Private Paradise Villa Ocean View With Private Pool

Pleasant stay in Sabadeco, views, private, relaxing

  • 4 of 5

This villa is well laid out, great outdoor space, nice pool. No need to be inside with the spacious covered deck, or sun filled area around the pool. Nice views of Klein Bonaire and the ocean, especially at sunset. We had three adult couples stay, each had their own rooms with en-suite bathrooms, a privacy plus. Breakfasts at the villa saved money along with 'lunch' pool side (crackers/cheese, snacks) dinners out in town or take out eaten in the warm evening breeze. The neighborhood is a low traffic area, provides a safe, quiet area for nice morning walks to enjoy the variety of beautifully landscaped nearby homes. There is great snorkeling nearby as well as up and down the East Coast and the National Park.

Great View, nice large pool, lovely villa, nothing left to wish for.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with three generations, and all of us had a really really good time. Great pool, big enough to swim proper in. Nice sunbeds. A great porch with good couch and dinner table ( you probably wont spend a minute inside but if you wish: comfortable living room with huge tv ). The kitchen is very well equipped, and should there be anything you wish for: the property manager is on the ball. Beds are good. We absolutely didnt want to leave. Never. Ever.

Rose is very nice to deal with and quick with replies, and super flexible (despite my very erratic email timing) .

Incredible View

  • 5 of 5

Renting this home for a family vacation was a wonderful way for our family to reconnect. It was the best location for snorkeling and just far enough away from the main town. The view was amazing and the house was bright and cheery. The homeowner had terrific beach chairs, accommodations and her assistance and response time was incredible. The Island itself has the friendliest people! Bonaire is known for the scuba diving and the tourism generated from that is immense. This island does not have a lot of night life, nor does it have an abundant amount of white fluffy beaches but ..... the water was the clearest I have ever seen, the marine life spectacular and the wild flamingoes just Stunning!

great place

  • 5 of 5

first time in Bonaire. we really enjoyed the house. My wife and I went for the diving. I chose the house for its privacy and pool. Having a room for washing and drying dive gear was great. We enjoyed being away from the noise of Kralendik but it is only minutes to town. The friendly rep from the owner's management company met us at the airport and led us to the house that evening and gave us a good orientation of the property. The owner was a pleasure to deal with. we would go back.

Stop looking for other homes to rent...You have found the one!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends have been going to Bonaire for several years and this property is our favorite! I sell real estate in Pennsylvania and Rose, the owner of this house, was absolutely wonderful to deal with. Rose has a house manager who meets you at the airport and takes you to the property. He is available via email or cell during your stay for any questions regarding the home. I actually emailed him that the barbaque grill was out of gas and within 1 hour a fresh tank was hooked up.... AMAZING SERVICE!!!!

As you have read in the other reviews the kitchen was well stocked with anything that you need from bottle openers to a large assortment of cooking utensils and spices. There is an outside grill for cooking which is great on those hot Bonaire days. The salt pool was wonderful and has wonderful views of the ocean with parrots and iguinnas visiting daily. The inside of the home is beautiful but we ate every meal outside and never really used the inside of the home except for sleeping. The beds were very comfortable and the showers have great water pressure. We were two families, both with young children (ages 7 and 10)...The layout of the home is wonderful...each side of the house has two private bedrooms (4 total bedrooms)

The outside couch and table are extremely comfortable! The owner has tea candles on the top of the pillars under the porch roof near the pool...we loved sitting outside at night in this romantic setting.

I have nothing negative to say about the property...This home is truly paradise found!! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!! Honestly if you are not happy with this will not be happy with any. I gave this property 5 stars but I wish I could have given it 100!! Thanks again Rose!!!

Cape Cod

Great Villa! Beautiful Location! Security System and Dive Locker.

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this Villa for the past 3 years and we absolutely love it. We have been traveling to Bonaire for over 20 years and have stayed in several private Villas and this home is by far the best. My husband loves to cook and he always comments at how well the kitchen is stocked with pretty much anything you need, which was definitely not the case in the other Villas we rented. We also enjoyed the peace of mind of the security system.

The Villas also has an abundance of beach towels, pillows, blankets, sheets etc and much more. My Mom loves how comfortable the beds are as well as the furniture (in both the indoor and outdoor living areas) The house is equipped with screens and has a great layout, especially for families. I love the en suite bathrooms and the large closet and bathroom in the master bedroom area.

One of the best features is the outdoor deck area which features comfortable lounge chairs, ceiling fans and an amazing view of the pool and the ocean. I can sit in a cozy chair in the shade reading a book while the kids have a ball in the beautiful pool. We have also enjoyed many dinners outside while watching the sunset.

In addition, the house also has a large dive locker equipped with an area to hang your gear, a wash sink and a lockable door. We just back up the trunk unload, rinse, lock the door and we are done. Very convenient.

It may sound funny, but when someone asks why I love this house, I always say because it is so comfortable and nothing annoys me. LOL Often times on Bonaire you have to sacrifice certain things because it is Bonaire...definitely not the case with this home. You might find yourself spending less time underwater because you want to get home and relax. The owners are very nice and easy to work with...we notice new updates to the home each year. The Villa is very clean and well-maintained. You will not be disappointed. We already booked our stay for 2014.
