Overview

About the property

Beautiful Ocean Front Home With Private Salt Water Pool

The apartment is a 5 minute drive from the airport (there is no airplane noise) and 10 minutes to downtown or grocery store. We are situated on private oceanfront property with walk in beach access. You will have a beautiful two-sided large patio overlooking a beautiful old lighthouse and the ocean. Inside is modern, fully furnished and large. Plenty of space for a family of six or three couples. Great for scuba divers and snorkelers, sail-boarders, wind-surfers, sun worshipers, adventurers or lay back and read a book.

The home has 2 apartments (upstairs is owner use). You will be renting the 1st floor which has a 15' x 15' fully equipped open kitchen that overlooks the saltwater pool and ocean. It opens to the dining, living room and large patio areas. The furnishing is large and comfortable (no plastic) and with the drapes open on two sides it is light and airy. Air-Conditioning is in the bedrooms only and there is always a good breeze thru-out the house. There is TV, WiFi and a safe in the master bedroom. The master bedroom is very large and the other two are more than adequate. Each bedroom has built-in closets, shelving and air-conditioning. The floors are ceramic tile throughout. The bathrooms are good size with large walk-in showers. The apartment is equipped with an alarm system.

About Lisa Caradonna

As the previous owner of a scuba diving tour company and an avid diver Bonaire was one of my favorite islands. I started building Casa Grande around 2010 and it is finally finished, luxury pool and all. Although I live in Florida I spend my winters on Bonaire and enjoy the peaceful oceanfront view, wonderful breezes and quiet ambiance. I enjoy snorkeling, swimming, reading mysteries and painting in my spare time. I originally built the downstairs apartment for my children but they do not come that often and I finally realized it is a shame to leave it unoccupied. It is a beautiful apartment with a fantastic oceanfront view. I love to watch the sail boarders, dive boats and sail boats go by out of course, I get to see the cruise ships arriving and departing almost daily. I also love to cook and I have huge kitchens in both apartments.

Lisa Caradonna purchased this house in 2003

Outstanding property, great hospitality, almost nothing left wanting

  • 5 of 5

We have a family of 5 with 3 teens. Casa grande was a great experience for us all. Lisa and her property management staff were exceptional: almost everything you would need for a fantastic Bonaire holiday was available upon arrival. We carried snorkel gear onto the plane, and we probably could’ve existed at the property for our week with nothing else: beach towels, coffee filters, paper towels, portable cooler and ice packs... everything we needed was there. Our biggest complaint? We ran out of ground pepper. We’ve done a lot of VRBO and this was top of the charts - we had 7 choices of spaghetti scoops and 8 oven mitts... Lisa has the place well-equipped. I hate to write such a glowing review because I would like to think this gem is undiscovered and readily available for our return, but the accommodation and experience are deserving of praise. Thanks Lisa, Anne and Francey.

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

This location is more than ideal. Close to all diving and snorkeling. Beautiful location, right on the water, super close to the airport by car, yet secluded enough to be private and relaxing. Brand new resort right next door means super convenient for you to pop over, buy a day pass and enjoy their lovely beach, pool, bar and if you just want to grab lunch, no day pass needed. Same for access to the private restaurant on their property - just make a reservation. There's a dive shop on site as well, so easy to rent scuba or snorkel equipment.

The house is clean and tidy. The owner has a helpful manager to aid in any issues and provide access to the property. The owner even leaves a cell phone for local calls, should you need to make any. The kitchen is super modern, and the outdoor covered patio has a hammock to enjoy, and then there's the pool and patio area beside the pool with another eating area and another hammock!

Highly recommend - 6 stars out of 5!

Awesome property, awesome location, awesome owners!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in an awesome location. Loved the 10 days we spent in it.

Dive right at the house beach & Dive Friends right next door made it super easy for us to dive!

Minor issue with washing machine/dryer which was immediately addressed was our only issue.

Plenty of space, nice beds, and the only thing to be aware of is (American view here) bedroom only AC. Living space can get a little warm, especially if winds are down...

We have done many VRBOs and this was our best experience to date. Highly recommmend!,

Fabulous place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

We picked the right house and neighborhood to stay in while in Bonaire. Loved everything about the house, especially the pool area and the terrace looking out over the ocean. The house was so clean and fresh smelling. Beautiful views too. It was nice being within five minutes of everything .

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Casa Grande is an amazing property!

It was really too big for just the two of us...but it checked all of our "boxes" of things we like (i.e. privacy, full kitchen, AC in the bedrooms, washer/dryer, dishwasher, grill, pool, spa, beach, hammocks, outdoor spaces and outdoor shower, rinse tanks and secure/private area to dry our dive gear).

This property would be completely comfortable for 6 people or a small family...comfortable and secure.

We love the location, because of the all the dive sites on the South side of the island and close proximity to our favorite dive shop (Dive Friends) and to the grocery stores and to town.

(We did find that Warehouse, and the new grocery store across the street, were much more reasonable than Van Den Tweel--their prices on some items have doubled since last year.)

Lisa was great to work with, and very responsive to take care of all of our questions and concerns.

We hope to return to Casa Grande next year!
