If you're looking for a place to totally unwind, relax, and detach yourself from your 'normal', then you've found it. This secluded, quiet villa was clean, the bed was extremely comfortable, the air conditioning and ceiling fan were perfect for sleeping. A nice, comfortable breeze always swept through the villa during the day, keeping it cool and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed, the huge gas grill was clean and worked great. Karoline provided the perfect amount of complimentary food/drink to get our stress free vacation started out right. The huge pool was the perfect temp for swimming and keeping cool in the hot afternoon sun and the covered terrace, cabana, and sunset patio were perfect for relaxing with a good book, taking an afternoon nap out of the sun and, of course, enjoying a bottle of wine while watching the sunset. The entire property had a constant, soft breeze flowing through it the most of the day. The beautiful aqua blue water provided amazing snorkeling, sighting more than 30 species and a spotted moray eel directly in front of the villa. Karoline was a joy to work with and went above and beyond her normal responsibilities to help make our Anniversary day extra special (have Philip cook for you if you get the chance!) Although this rental was for the owners suite portion of the house, which was the perfect amount of space for my wife and I (in fact, we never even used the living room area because we spent all our time 'living' outside), you'll have a hard time finding a property this large, with a pool this big, with amazing snorkeling and sunset views at your back door, at this price, anywhere on this beautiful island. Believe me, I've tried.
Thank you, Karoline, for making this one of the best anniversaries we've ever had.
If you want to be unselfish and invite your friends and family on your next retreat to enjoy this beautiful villa (I will not be ;-), then here's a link to rent the entire villa. Enjoy!
Secluded & Spacious
My wife and I stayed in the studio for one week in February of 2017. The studio had plenty of space for both of us, but we really didn't spend much time indoors. The outdoor space is amazing! We felt guilty having it all to ourselves. Pool is gigantic. Location is quiet and secluded. Our only regret was not convincing all our friends to come and enjoy it with us.
Karoline was a great host. She had some groceries for us when we arrived and was always quick to help and answer any questions we had. We had a problem with the security system and we came home the next morning from diving to find her with the security company fixing it.
My wife and I are relatively new to scuba with only 10 dives before our trip. Karoline recommended VIP Diving to get our equipment. We did 2 guided dives with them and then felt comfortable enough to dive on our own (all shore diving). We rented air for the whole week, so our days pretty much followed a pattern.... wake up, go diving, come back to the house and eat lunch, rest, hang by the pool, then dinner in town. We learned to plan ahead on dinners - many restaurants require reservations.
Only downside of the trip was mosquitoes. That could be an aberration though... Bonaire is usually a very dry island, but 2017 has been an unusually wet year. It rained off and on the first 3 days we were there (quick downpours, then sunny again). The rain was never an issue, but mosquitoes breed in standing water and at night they came biting. We went through several cans of bug spray.
Overall a great trip though. Next time we will bring friends and rent out the whole house!
Beautiful Studio at the perfect place
Spent two wonderful weeks in this studio. The studio was very spacious, fully equipped, nicely decorated and very clean. The studio has air conditioning in the bedroom but I found I didn't need to use it due to good airflow. All rooms are equipped with an excellent ceiling fan too. In the kitchen everything is available to make yourself a meal when needed. The studio has a nice patio and a very beautiful and well maintained swimming pool with some nice seats. What I liked the most about the studio is the view of the sea and Klein Bonaire.
The studio is located in Sabadeco which is located close to a lot of beautiful diving and snorkeling places in the North of Bonaire. Two of the most famous dive and snorkeling places are basically in the back yard.
The owner was very good to deal with. Both before and while I was at her studio she was very helpful with inquiries and information and would respond extremely quickly.
I have no hesitation to recommend this studio and hopefully when I return to Bonaire it will be available for my stay
Een heerlijke studio op een geweldige lokatie !
Voor ons de 4e keer op deze lokatie en het blijft een droomplek. S' morgens aan zee zitten turen, boek lezen aan het fantastische zwembad. Alles is perfect onderhouden en schoon, tuin, zwembad en de hartelijke ontvangst, voor ons de ultieme plek om een druk en hectisch leven even te ontvluchten. Een echte aanrader…!! Wat een paradijsje…!
