Our dream was to create our second home as a haven away from our busy lives, on the pristine and beautiful island of Bonaire. Offering light, privacy and a warm comforting feeling to our friends and guests... Our villa will make you want to take a deep breath and relax.
We chose to locate Salentein - named after our favorite white wine - at the end of a small 'cul-the sac' path in the affluent Sabadeco area of Bonaire. This private and fully oceanfront location is known to be one of the World's most beautiful DIVING spots. Accessible directly from your terrace... yet, only a short drive to the lively Caribbean village of Kralendijk and its many restaurants and lovely shops.
When you enter the villa overlooking the beautiful tropical garden you will immediately be amazed by its open-air living space, which provides a truly spectacular 180 view of the turquoise ocean, the island of Klein Bonaire and the Goto Mountains.
From here, recline in one of the many soft loungers, you will probably always remember watching the dolphins passing by on any beautiful morning, or having a chilled glass of wine overlooking the breathtaking Caribbean sunset. Its unique rounded porch offers a large shaded area.
To create a feeling of light and airiness - we so much desired - every part of our home is built to catch the cool Caribbean breeze. With soft colored matt marble floors, shuttered windows and ceiling fans, that provide for a wonderful cool flow in this warm tropical gem.
In the left wing of the house you will find the impressive Master Bedroom with a truly unique all-glass double shower, high-beamed ceilings and walk-in closet. Recline into the king-sized VI-spring bed with white Egyptian cotton sheets and fluffy towels, while enjoying full ocean view.
Three other rooms are located in the upper right wing of the house and two separately accessible bedrooms in the lower right part. All rooms offer the same wonderful ocean view and luxurious box-spring beds, crispy sheets, air-conditioning and LCD-TV/cable.
Our home is spacious enough for all guests to find a private place to relax; yet if you choose to stay with a smaller group, its layout offers a surprisingly intimate feeling.
So, enjoy alfresco dining or settle back into the poolside lounge-beds. Take advantage of the wonderful jet streamed pool or gym, or choose the ocean for a quiet moment of snorkeling. Rinse off at the pool shower under the Palm trees, and prepare for another day in paradise!
Villa Salentein is welcoming up to 12 guests, and our normal daily rate starts at $ 1140,- per day, but every once in a while we welcome you at special discounted rates. Please just contact us.
