Belnem Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Our villa at Lighthouse Beach Resort is located minutes from Bonaire's Flamingo Airport and the best diving and windsurfing in the world.

A cell phone is provided to keep you in touch both on and off the island. (Purchase your minutes in town.)

Ours is a family-friendly home. Singles and couples alike also enjoy the ambience to be found here. The bedrooms are upstairs and air-conditioned for sleeping comfort. Both bedrooms have a large private bathroom and ample closet space. The linens and towels are plentiful.

Downstairs, just off your patio, you will find ample tradewinds and a pool for your relaxation after a day of snorkeling, diving, biking, windsurfing or just doing nothing.

To complete the kitchen amenities, you will find a coffeemaker, toaster oven, microwave, and blender. A large storage room off the kitchen makes gear storage easy and convenient.

The small beach and the reef are steps away from your front gate. For the younger set, the tidepools provide hours of enjoyment discovering the treasures hidden there. Some spectacular sunsets and the 'green flash' are often seen from your own beach.

A large palm tree in the front yard provides shade for sipping your morning coffee or tea. Colorful plantings provide a wonderful area for enjoying the hummingbirds, chibi chibi birds, and the parakeets of the island. You will also find the front yard the perfect place to while away the day.

We would like to invite you to discover our island home and the paradise that is Bonaire.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for nine nights. Our daughter and granddaughters stayed a week. It was perfect, right next to the pool and close to the beach with ocean views from the upstairs balconies. Buddy and Judy made everything seamless. The condo was very clean and everything worked well, the kitchen was well equipped. There were lots of clean towels provided. Also the owner has a local contact if you would need anything. Great place!

A GOOD PLACE FOR R AND R

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to escape, this is it. My experience was that the condo was most fitting for "the island attitude". My visit was in December and the winter we are having in the states this year, an "island attitude" was really welcomed. A breezy 80 degrees for the most part by day. The condo was very clean, neat, and comfortable. Also, all the necessities were there and in place (kitchen, linens, etc). The large swimming pool was almost like having your own private one there. I observed that there was a mix of permanent residents (including doctors) as well as having rental property available. I judge that as being a positive. Now as for Bonaire itself, it does provide a variety of activities along with its beauty. My variety along with relaxing, was snorkeling, bicycling, and dining at a different neat restaurant each evening. The water was beautiful everywhere, but my favorite place to observe it was at Lac Bay where all the windsurfers were doing their thing. Now in conclusion, I would recommend this unit and Bonaire for those who want to do nothing but relax as well as for the activity junkies. It offers something for everyone.

I was quite amazed at the review given on this property prior to my arrival. I am a return guest & having stayed here on numerous occasions wondered what was going on.

We arrived to a spotlessly clean villa. Fresh linens, towels, etc. Found everything in working order, stove, etc

The couple of days we just hung around the place doing as little as possible, there was minimal noise from the construction. The other days we were off exploring, so if there was construction noise, we didn't hear it. lol

We called the "guard dogs" Mutt & Jeff. They would come in & visit & we kept a bowl of water out front for them. From previous stays @ LBR27, the dogs only bark when there are strangers on the property (mostly at night) or should a stray donkey visit.

The property manager is awesome. When I accidentally locked us out, she stopped what she was doing & was there in minutes to get us back in.

I have spoken to the iguana, who I named Orpheus, Oppie for short, about finding another place to poop & the pool area has been clean since.

I have traveled the Caribbean for years & love all of the places I have stayed on various islands. LBR 27 is more like a home than a rental property. I feel certain for anyone new to Bonaire, or even for those who have been coming here for years, not only is this property a great value, but it's a great "home" away from home.

My week in Bonaire was wonderful! The listing description and photos are accurate, and the property was clean and well-maintained. This villa is so welcoming and comfortable. It's beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a relaxing get-a-way. I loved that it had maps and books about the island and it's many treasures.

The island is so beautiful and peaceful - a tropical paradise. I am not a diver, but love to snorkel. Being able to just walk in to the water and snorkel was amazing. There were so many beautiful fish and it seemed like they were just swimming up to visit with me.

We made a swim in the nice pool and watching the sunset poolside (of course with an adult beverage) a daily ritual. Then, off to town most evenings for a fabulous meal at one of the many restaurants.

We even made a day trip to the Washington Slaghaal National Park. What an adventure! Rough, dirt roads, leading to unbelievable beauty! So worth it!

This villa is wonderful and I would highly recommend it to anyone planning a trip to Bonaire. Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your piece of paradise!

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation DO NOT rent here!

  • 1 of 5

When we arrived at the villa the stove top, oven and water were not working! Through emails we were instructed "HOW TO" turn everything on ourselves. We had to bring all the patio furniture out of the storage area as well. Sorry, but we were on vacation and shouldn't be asked to do this. Although there was a "property manager" to contact with problems, the problems reported were never fixed while we were there (i.e. broken a/c and oven, a refrigerator that made a constant loud noise, and a huge ant problem). There were barking dogs (belonged to an owner there) and construction taking place; constant beeping of construction vehicles. The pool was not cared for and Iguana poop remained at the pool our entire stay. It was a very disappointing experience. Bonaire is beautiful but this place is not!!!! I do not recommend it. Spend your money some place else it will be worth it.

Owner's Response: Had we known your expectations for your 3 3/4 day stay in addition to your extremely low budget, we would have suggested other places for you to contact for accommodations. We have never had someone stay such a short time and complain so much (no bad reviews since we bought in 1997). We are fortunate to have several repeat guests that stay for as long as a month at a time so we must be doing some things right. Unfortunately, we are unable to control nearby construction, neighbor's dogs and native wildlife behavior. We hope that you managed to see and enjoy beautiful Bonaire between the constant emails and calls to our manager. We have addressed the air conditioner problem and our refrigerator is now level and not making the noise.

Great Bonaire diving vacation property

  • 5 of 5

This is a great rental and is perfect for a family or 2 couples who dive or just want to relax. We stayed 5 weeks and had 2 other couples visit us at separate times. We dove with a diving couple during the first 3 weeks and then snorkeled with non-diving friends the last 2 weeks. This condo and location accomodated the different interests of both groups. I won't repeat what Dive Daddy said in the first review (which was spot on!) but I will add that the condo has easy access for watching the fabulous Bonaire sunsets (with drinks in hand!). Also, many of the reviewers mentioned that the location was good for southern dive sites, which is true, but if you book with a shop like Dive Friends or Wannadive, they have several locations from north to south where you can exchange tanks so it is not a problem to dive all day up north if you wish. You don't need to return to the south between dives. Finally, you do need to rent a vehicle to stay at this property and if you are a family with teenagers or young children, it would help if the teenagers are divers or snorkelers or can otherwise occupy themselves since this is not a resort despite the title. If your teenagers are looking for a social scene, this property is not for them. Also, you would need to monitor young children since there is no lifeguard at the pool. We saw both teenagers and young children at other units during our stay and they seemed to be having a great time.
