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

Oceanfront Private Villa on top location, 3 Bedrooms , 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Villa Ganshi is a real beach villa, ideally located on the fringes of Playa Lechi, at the very rim of the Caribbean Sea. The center of Kralendijk, Bonaire’s main village, is hardly a 15 minute walk away, as are most of the activities as well as the main restaurants.

The house itself, carefully tucked away in lush tropical greenery, could be described as casual and intimate. The interior is plain and simple: island style with colonial accents and an occasional splash of Caribbean color.

Being a private residence, the house is equipped with all amenities and comfort you could wish for during your stay:

There are three bedrooms in the main house ,All of them have king beds. The bedrooms are equipped with A/C and ceiling fans. White 100% cotton bed linen, cozy throws, and cushions. The rooms have screens, but additional mosquito nets are also available should they be needed. The master bedroom has a private bathroom, the other two share one.

Keywords: Villa Ganshi is a Beach Villa located at one of the best spots on Bonaire. the Dive and snorkeling site 'something special' are in front of the house.

Why Villa Ganshi Bonaire chose Bonaire

The location of Villa Ganshi is unique because there are only a few places like this on Bonaire.

Villa Ganshi is all about easy outdoor living: a constant airy breeze provides the perfect temperature. The spacious porch offers plenty of shade, there is a nice sundeck with loungers, deck chairs, and a hammock. Our beach allows you to slip straight into the turquoise Caribbean Sea!

What makes this villa unique

The main feature is without any doubt the peace and quiet this house has to offer... with your own private beach to enjoy fantastic sunsets and starry moonlit skies.

Perfect Villa

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just spent a week staying at Villa Ganshi. It is an oasis like setting, right on the sea. The Villa is right in front of the dive site " Something Special", you simply walk out the beachfront into world class diving and snorkeling. We did all the tourist things and had a blast. The Villa itself is very beautiful, with lots of outdoor living spaces . I highly recommend Villa Ganshi

After 7 visits the magic is still in the air

  • 5 of 5

As the title states this was our 7th visit to Villa Ganshi/Pelican Reef and our 11th visit to Bonaire. Prior to finding Kees' little paradise on earth we had run the gambit of resorts and condos on Bonaire with varied results. After our first visit to Pelican Reef we new that we had found our home away from home. Well, then we stayed at Villa Ganshi and then that became our home away from home. Trust me, either one fits my fancy just fine.

From the location of the house, to the fully equipped kitchen, to Something Special right in your back yard, it simply does not get better than this on Bonaire. Kees has equipped the house to be very diver friendly with rinse tank and a handy hose to wash you gear down. The upper deck is a great spot for morning coffee and dive day planning, and the back covered veranda which catches the afternoon breeze is simply sublime when the late afternoon sun is bearing down on the ocean side. A great spot to review the picture you took today or fill your dive log with the new undersea friends you made today.

So there you have it. I don't always go to Bonaire, but when I do, I stay at Villa Ganshi!

wonderful time at Bonaire....

  • 5 of 5

Eight years ago we visited Bonaire the first time.

Many things have changed but this place is such as beautiful as it was before.

Nothing to miss in and around the Villa Ganshi.

Fully equipment in the kitchen, many books in the library, a sensational snorkeling and dive spot so close in Front of the house....and many more.

We enjoyed every moment and feel a little bit sick at the end of our hollidays, cause we have to leave.

Thank you M. for every Kind of help whenever we need this....perfect job !

A short way to Kralendjk with nice restaurants and a small number of gift shops.

A new dive center (PADI) has opened just across the road, that's very helpful.

We are looking forward to visit the "Villa Ganshi" again as soon as possible.

Thanks a lot for hosting us.

Paradise in Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a glorious week at Villa Ganshi. This was our second time back to dive in Bonaire and this was a stellar property and experience. Highly recommend to anyone and everyone. Appreciated the small things such as soap being provided. A little thing but truly a statement of the quality of this property. The location if perfect. Can walk into town or use a car. GoooDive was across the street and handled all our needs. We even got PADI certified in Lion Fish hunting . Highly recommend event. Going to Bonaire? Stay at Villa Ganshi.

Our last night at the Villa after our 2 month stay and we could not have asked for a more perfect visit! This has truly been our " home away from home" and we have enjoyed every minute. As a 20 year wedding anniversary gift to ourselves we have been planning this for sometime and the Villa was everything we hoped for. From the time to ourselves to entertaining family and friends there is not one thing we would change. We loved being right off the water, the house was perfect and we loved the peace and quiet of the Master bedroom. Kees, we really enjoyed meeting you. Mark was great and always there if we called. We hope to return soon!

Exactly what I was looking for

  • 5 of 5

Sitting at the ocean end of the deck, you can flick a pebble into the water, you're that close.

I love to snorkel and do some diving. Just walk into the water and the first 30 or 40 yards out are shallow and sandy bottomed, with some small coral heads here and there that are fun to check out. After 30 or 40 yards out you hit the dark blue water line. Look below you and you will see the beautiful reef that runs the perimeter of the island. The depth to get down to the reef varies around 25 to 40 feet deep, which was fine for my son and I to snorkel. We like diving down, thou by the end of our stay our ears were water logged. My wife preferred and enjoyed floating at the surface and watching things. The house is located just north of the promenade, which makes it more private. But walk just a block and you are on the promenade which takes you into town. The location of this house is perfect. A walk to the nearest market it a little under a mile, so you might not need a car, but get one. Get one of those mid size four door pickups . If for no other reason than to do a driving tour of the north end of the island (Washington-Slagbaai national park). The house itself is beautiful, the pictures the owner posted are accurate. I plan to come back.
