Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Playa - Villa Trepanier

Ocean-front villa, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)

THE BEST OCEAN-FRONT VALUE ON BONAIRE! DIRECTLY ON PLAYA LICHEE!

Villa Trepanier is one of only two houses available for rental in this unique area of the island located an 8-minute walk along the ocean front to all the main town has to offer: shopping, grocery and liquor stores, fruit market, video store, waterfront restaurants, bars, etc.

“Villa Trepanier” is a modern & large (2200 square feet), 3 bedroom house on the Caribbean Island of Bonaire. This quiet, modern, glass-walled villa is bright, very spacious, airy and located just 12 meters from the cristal blue waters edge. There is 4 ac units so one in every room of the Villa.

Jossie, our Property Manager, will meet you at the airport (even if you rent a car), take you to the villa, explain how to use the locks, air conditioning and safe, and give you a complimentary cell phone that you may use to contact her or make local calls for the duration of your stay. There are air conditioning units in all the rooms and the main living area.

Inside, the villa is bright with sunlight permeating the main living room and front porch, lots of air flowing, clean and modern, cool stone floors, leather couches, new TV, and wood table accenting the granite kitchen. The Villa has 3 bedrooms set up with queen sized beds. Since an additional single bed ca be installed in the master bedroom, you can sleep 7 in 4 beds. A baby crib and high chair are available.

There are 2.5 bathrooms. The master bedroom has its own private bathroom. The second largest complete bathroom is shared; communicating with the middle room and the third larger room. Both bathrooms have walk-in showers.

There is also an outdoor shower on the patio for rinsing after a swim or dive.

Dive Friends, a PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center that caters to divers of every skill level and age, is less than 50 meters away. As a resident of our villa, you will enjoy a 15% discount on diving services. Of course, you may also step out of the villa and go straight into the ocean for breathtaking shore diving right out of your front door!

The sea life is amazingly diverse right in front of the house and fish can be fed by hand in just 4 feet of water! If you swim 35 meters out from the shore of the house, the bottom drops off quite fast and turns into a wall dive pretty quickly!

Magnificent soft hued sunsets are the evening norm. The quality of the light is magical in Bonaire & can be enjoyed from the patio with a glass of wine.

If you like eating fresh local fish, just walk a 100 meters down to the fishing docks and befriend a local fisherman.

The front patio view is of av few boats on moorings and pastel colored sunsets, all framed by coconut trees with the backdrop of Bonaire’s white beached, uninhabited Klein Island.

For a few dollars a local will ferry you across the 1000 meter wide Bay to Klein Island where you can lazily beach comb & explore its desolate and untouched white sandy beaches.

For the kids, there is a pool behind the Villa, and the beach in front of the house has no surf, (it’s the leeward side of the island) and no strong current to fight as well.

For exploring the island, a rental car, quad, scooter or bikes can be rented to enjoy the warm sunshine and predominant cool trade winds. We usually rent a scooter from Bonaire scooters; for an average 20$ to $35 per day for a weekly rental. Scooters are safe as no one drives very fast and there is virtually no traffic, only one or two traffic lights dot the whole quiet little island.

N.B: If the dates for Villa Trepanier are not available on my calendar, please email me (the owner): I will find a solution for your group, as I also have 2 luxurious & new ocean front condo suites, call Bonaire Blûe, look up VRBO 873877 both have : 3 bedrooms with there own bathrooms ( so 3 ) & a toillet. These units are adjacent to Villa Trepanier & Villa Vos 839271. All in a very safe part of town.

The vrbo satellite location is a tad inaccurate as the villa is right on the ocean (see Google Earth).

For windsurfers, Lac Bay is a 20-minute ride from the Villa. One of the best locations in the world to get your ride on, Bonaire’s Lac Bay produces many of the top pro windsurfers on the planet. Lac Bay’s azure clear water, flat and shallow, along with its friendly white sandy bottom and famously consistent sea breezes, make it the ideal place to perfect your jibes and freestyle moves. That’s why it's called Jibe City.

A rider can learn just by watching the top pros perfecting their newest futuristic moves meters away.

You may also enjoy kitesurfing (we offer a 10% discount voucher at Bonaire Kitesurfing) and renting SUP’s (stand up paddle boards) for exploring Lac Bay. Every time we go on the water, we see amazing new representatives of the diverse collection of wildlife in the ocean.

The majority of the island is undeveloped with the north end protected as a national park. The island is home to wild donkeys, goats, iguanas & flamingos which have been surviving on the islands since it was first “discovered” (while inhabited by local Indians) by the Spanish over 500 years ago. When you drive around, make sure to bring leftovers and feed the wild donkeys and goats roaming about.

Bonaire is one of the safest islands in the Caribbean. It is peaceful and the antithesis of a tourist trap, unlike many other islands.

It's always a pleasure for me to talk about the villa & Bonaire.

I invite you to visit me website as well to have more information.

About Edithe Trepanier

I have been all around the world, 46 countries and counting! Bonaire is one of my favorite places and a very special island! Bonaire is quiet, very safe, the locals super friendly, gracious, respectful, making everyone feel like one of the FAMILY!. I love to Windsurf, Kitesurf and Snorkel (Bonaire, especially right in front of the house offers some of the best snorkeling in the world) and Bonaire offers awesome diving and snorkeling conditions year round. The temperature is stable mid 80's year round. The water perfect temperature ...

Edithe Trepanier purchased this villa in 2008

Why Edithe Trepanier chose Bonaire

I wanted a Caribbean house that I would enjoy visiting when I needed to get away from the daily grind of life. Bonaire is always warm and my beautiful home is right 'On' the water. Villa Trepanier is less than 15 meters from the edge of the water; a short walk on the board walk,to all the main town has to offer, I rarely rent a car I prefer to go everywhere by walking or scooter; waterfront bars, waterfront restaurants and shopping. Some of the best snorkeling in the world. Also I am ex-pro windsurfers and the windsurfing in Lac Bay is awesome, with Bonaire producing some of the best windsurfing athletes in the world. Kitesurfing, windsurfing, SUping, snorkeling, diving, exploring, fishing, great restaurants and friendly locals! I certainely have no regrets in regards of the purchase of this property, and looking to get another one.

What makes this villa unique

I love the fact that you take a 5 minute cab ride from the airport, drop your bags at the door, slip on the swim trunks and can be snorkeling in 30 seconds of walking in the Villa with our local tropical fish. The Villa is across a non busy one way street from the water. I also love the sound of the waves, and enjoy watching the world go by from the front porch. Amazing sunsets from the patio. The light is very special in this part of the Caribbean. Its a Tropical paradise. Best snorkeling on Bonaire right out the front door. Dive instruction right next door at the largest dive shop on Bonaire,'Dive Friends a 30 second walk from our villa. The Villa is close to the best waterfront restaurants and bars all within short walking distance to our villa. Paradise !

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Trepanier is a beautiful home in an extremely convenient location right on he waterfront! The house is very spacious, clean & well stocked with everything you need for a fabulous vacation. It is right on the downtown street of Kralendijk within walking distance to the dive shop and restaurants. We did most of our own cooking at home & had every dish or utensil we needed. I can't say enough about the cleanliness, not a cockroach to be seen, lots of clean towels and bedding and cleaning supplies as needed.

Thank you to Edithe and to Jossie the property manager. We will definitely be looking to stay here again on our return trips to Bonaire! We miss the gorgeous view already!

Best time ever in Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

This villa is located right in front of Ocean. Was able to wake up in the morning, swim with all type of fishes, turtles, octopus, ray and eels. No danger, just pure delight! Walking distance from downtown (very nice restaurants), 3 bedrooms (each with a bathroom), a very nice open area with kitchen, living room and dining room. This villa is well equiped, very confortable and neat. Grocery has everything needed to cook home nice meals.

Incredible sunset from the outside dining area. Bonaire is not only a paradis for divers and windsurfers, but also many other interests such as dunkies, flamengo, salt mine.

I was there in November 2016 and am absolutly delighted by my stay.

  • 5 of 5

We got there late at nigh; what a beautiful surprise to wake up to the ocean blue and smooth sound of the water. The condo has great amenities, it's spacious and very comfortable. Very quiet area we really were able to enjoy every relaxing minute of our week. Nice ambiance at night and perfect weather. Thank you Mrs. Trepanier

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this place is awesome! Starting from the communications with the owner and later on with the on-site manager, the back and forth was efficient and courteous, the formalities went off without a glitch, we were greeted at the airport and we had great service on-site. The place itself is fantastic! Great value for the money, clean, luxurious and spacious. The location could not be better: walking distance from a great dive shop (Dive Friends is my favorite dive shop on the island), quiet area, yet only a short walk from the town and restaurants. Considering that Bonaire offers the best diving in the Caribbean, this villa is definitely my new home away from home!

Island house perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot wait to return to this wonderful house! It's comfortable, clean, cozy, cost-effective, cool (in two senses of the word), convenient…. (I've run out of "c" words.) It's a stunning little piece of architecture on top of being extremely practical. The location is just close enough to and, at the same time, just far enough away from town. With Dive Friends steps away, dive needs are easily met. Easy parking, if you have a vehicle. Good restaurants nearby. Quiet neighborhood. Snorkeling and diving outside the front door. Very accommodating owner and greeter. Handy discounts for local businesses. I can't say enough good things about Villa Trepanier. I have not a single complaint or even suggestion for improvement. The only thing that could have made my stay better would have been to make it longer! :) Go for it! It's magnificent!
