I struggle in writing this as selfishly I want it to be available each time I book in the future. Simply put this is a space that feels like family( with out the drama ) it has real owners that care about you, your experience and your time under their care.
The view are priceless, shore diving the cliff reef right in your back door, far enough north of the "busy city life" but close enough that its a quick drive. Kitchen is perfect, and real kitchen tools not dollar store junk. So self sufficient folks will love it, for those that don't enjoy doing their own meals an easy short walk gets you to one of several quality dining options. So if you hate the though of fabulous sunsets, the sound of the ocean and would prefer to hang with the loud resort crowds please stay away. I want this spot to be available when we are ready to go back and see our friends Walther and Nicole.
Just returned from a week long stay at Beachcomber Villas in beautiful Bonaire.. it was the PERFECT vacation rental! The location is amazing, right on the ocean. Short walking distance to a grocery store and several restaurants (we really enjoyed Eddy's), and a nice 20-25 minute walk in to town. The villa itself was spotless and very well equipped. The best part by far was the huge terrace overlooking the ocean. The villa was kept cool by the ocean breezes, we didn't even need to use the air conditioner at night! It was extremely safe and secure, and we didn't hear any noise at all from the other unit.
We chose this location based on reviews we had read that said the it had great snorkeling from the beach right in front... we were not disappointed!! The snorkeling out front of the villa is AMAZING. We have snorkeled all over the Caribbean and have never seen so many fish before! Every morning we went out and saw something new. We visited different snorkel sites all around the island, and the best snorkeling by far was right in front of Beachcomber Villas.
Finally, Walther and Nicole really went above and beyond our expectations as hosts. They were there to help us and give us advice whenever it was needed. They are great people... very friendly and fun... we loved just spending time with them! You couldn't ask for better hosts!
Thank you so much for having us! Proost!!
Beachcomber Villas is perfect for divers. The location is within walking distance of Dive Friends Hamlet Oasis location and steps from a gorgeous reef. The room we stayed in was clean and comfortable. A full kitchen and outdoor grill really are nice to have after diving all day. There are outdoor rinse tanks, an outdoor shower and nice places to store dive gear. Parking is also great. Our hosts, Nicole and Walther, made sure we h*ad everything we needed to have a perfect vacation.
This is our third visit to Beachcomber and it never disappoints. We love having breakfast on the patio overlooking the ocean and watching the sunset in the evenings.
We love the convenience of being able to dive and snorkel from the patio and having a Dive Friends a 30 second walk away is an added bonus.
Nicole and Walter are wonderful hosts and treat us like family and make sure everything is perfect.
The apartment has everything you need for preparing meals and they supply towels for the nearby pool and diving. There are rinse tanks for rinsing dive gear, although we found it easier to rinse at Dive Friends and hang our gear at the villa. There is also a secure room for storing and hanging dive gear to dry.
Can't wait to return next year!
