Belnem, Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands

  • Bedrooms3
  • Sleeps6

  • Half Baths0
  • Minimum Stay5 nights

This spacious home is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood 5 minutes from beaches and 10 minutes from windsurfing, kite boarding and town. It was designed to be our home away home and features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, a great room, kitchen, and a covered rooftop terrace above a one-car garage.

The great room features comfortable seating, TV, digital cable with movie channels, internet, secure wi-fi, a small work area with desk and chair and entry from the front porch. The kitchen was fully renovated in 2011 and includes granite counters, stove, oven, refrigerator, microwave, washing machine and cooking utensils to satisfy the most discerning chef.

The master bedroom has a queen size bed with an extra thick mattress, a private bath with shower, sink/cabinet and toilet, cable TV, dresser, end tables, chair and both a walk-in and linen closet. There are plenty of linens for all the beds with lots of towels for the bath and beach. The two additional bedrooms share the second bathroom with shower, sink/cabinet and toilet. Each bedroom includes a double bed, night stand, wardrobe and chair. All bedroom windows have drapes with blackout liners.

The covered terrace is a focal point for relaxing, entertaining and dining alfresco. Tropical breezes combined with views of the island make this a perfect spot for afternoon siestas or evening stargazing. The one-car garage offers a convenient place to store dive gear.

The mature garden has been designed to attract the local birds. Preparation of just a little sugar water will encourage the chibi chibis and troupials to greet you in the morning. The parrots and parakeets come to the trees to feed throughout the day and both species of the island's hummingbirds can be seen frequently.

You will be greeted at the house by our manager, Ellen, who speaks Dutch, English and Spanish and is available to help with any questions or issues that may arise.

About Lynn Cavacini

The name, Blue Sky Bungalow, came from the phrase "blue sky" to dream or imagine. We have been coming to Bonaire since 1992 when our daughter became a dive instructor on the island and almost immediately began to "blue sky" the possibility of a vacation home here. Our annual visits led us to purchase the land in 1995 and build our "blue sky" home in 2001. Since this is where we knew we would be spending winters when we retired, it has been lovingly decorated as our dream come true home. Besides all the wonderful snorkeling and relaxing on the beach, we both enjoy cooking and bird watching. That love of cooking and food led to a complete renovation of the kitchen in 2011. For bird lovers, the terrace offers the opportunity to see the parrots and parakeets feeding at eye-level since we kept many of the local seed trees during the building process. Purple raspa were recently planted in the front of the house. These plants are a magnet for Bonaire's two species of hummingbirds.

Lynn Cavacini purchased this House in 2001

Why Lynn Cavacini chose Belnem

We have shared our home with family and friends over the years and believe that you will find this home as comfortable as we do. There have been as many as 6 persons staying and each finds plenty of room to enjoy their own piece of paradise. This is also a kid-friendly home since we have 8 grandchildren who have visited during different times. The neighborhood, garden and home enhance the reasons to come to Bonaire, the island's natural beauty that re-invigorates you and the chance to relax. Everything is here to make your trip unforgettable.

                                      Check in/out were handled smoothly

                                      Definitely would stay there again

                                      Wonderful Place to Stay

                                      Jarek P.

                                      I took my girlfriend, sister and my parents to Bonaire for 2 weeks. The house served us very well for 5 people. We really enjoyed using the barbecue grill almost every evening. The house is in a great location with easy quick access to the main roads. The house was pretty much everything we could have wanted for our trip.

                                      I would definitely stay here again.

                                      Awesome place for divers and nondivers

                                      We had a wonderful stay at Blue Sky Bungalow. Lynn was super helpful throughout the booking process and shared lots of great. information before we flew to Bonaire. While at the place, we were well cared for by Ellen, the onsite manager. The house was really well equipped, the kitchen well stocked and the rinse tanks were great for our gear. The dining area above the garage was a perfect spot for meals and hanging out. Also, the location was perfect, close to Bachelors and Windsock beaches and close enough to town and the airport to make travel there convenient. Next time we go to Bonaire we will definitely stay at Blue Sky.

                                      The house and property were exactly like pictured and even better.

                                      The house is well maintained. The rooms were spacious. The master bedroom had a master bath which was very convenient. Having spent 30 years of my career owning and operating restaurants, I found the kitchen in this vacation home well appointed. There is nothing lacking.

                                      The veranda above the garage was an added bonus. My wife and I made full use of it. Also having use of the garage made it safe and secure for our dive gear.

                                      The street that the home is located on is a nice residential area.

                                      We've been going to Bonaire for 22 years, and hopefully Blue Sky will be available on our future visits.

                                      Conviently located 10 minutes from both town in one direction and Jibe City in the other. They have all the amenities you expect and a very well supplied kitchen. The upper terrace is especially cool and breezy and a pleasant space for dining or relaxing. Their manager, Ellen, was extremely cordial and very helpful; especially when Insel Air decided that instead of getting us there at 5:00 PM as ticketed they would cancel the half full flight and put us on the midnight flight. We will return.

                                      just like the picture
