Awesome for the third time!

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time for us staying at pelican nest and is was awesome as usual. We really enjoy being able to wake up to a ocean view and be able to do a dive before breakfast. The house is in a great location and the owner Matthieu goes out of his way to make your vacation enjoyable. Thanks again Matthieu for a great dive vacation! Paul Rada

Best place on Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

Both the house and grounds were spacious and beautifully maintained. Everything in the home worked maintenance issues at all during our two week stay. We had a party of 7 adults and there was plenty of space for everyone to relax and have privacy when it was desired.

Although the house itself has plenty of indoor room, we spent most of our time outside on the spacious patio and down by the ocean under the palapa. We really enjoyed the gorgeous gardens, not something you will find at many of the other rental homes on Bonaire! Having immediate access to the ocean and reef was important to us in choosing this home and it certainly didn't disappoint. There are plenty of reef fish directly below the palapa and a couple of our party even swam with a pod of dolphins out front of the house! Mattieu was an amazing host! He picked us up from the airport and had cold beverages awaiting our arrival at the house. He helped us arrange a taxi ride to Dia de Rincon, advised us on choosing a good fishing charter and even brought us part of his catch one day when he went fishing. He also gave us a ride back to the airport at the end of our stay. Can't say enough about Mattieu's hospitality! We are looking forward to our next visit to this beautiful island and will definitely be staying at Mattieu's home when we return.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

The spaciousness of this Estate is wonderful, both inside and out! With 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms our party of 7 had plenty of room and privacy. The washer and clothesline was a godsend. The outdoor rinse tank and hose and drying shed worked great for all of our diving gear! (7 people and all their dive crap, if ya know what i mean!). The outside shwower was really great when we went swimming or snorkling! The addition of the 2nd refridgerator in the garage was really great to hold extra food and Beverages! The beds were the most comfortable that we have slept in on Bonaire, this was our third trip! Matthieu, the owner, was really great! He met us at the airport and took a bunch of us to the house with our luggage, while a few went to get the rental cars. It was really nice to have the maids come in and clean up after us and have clean bedding and towels twice in 1 week! All in all this is a superior place to stay!

Perfect, convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve definitely liked to stay at the Pelican’s Nest. Perfect, convenient location. Great spot for our windsurfing vacation. Relaxing day/night swimming right off the back patio. Only the way to water is little bit tricky and could be improved. Manager was very attentive to our needs and cleaning service was exceptional. We will definitely stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

Great location, great house, great entry. Perfect for divers! Matthieu was awsome.

  • 5 of 5

This was my fifth trip to Bonaire. I had always stayed at Capt Don's or equivalent . Great places but can't compare to having your own house with a back yard that looks like a post card. Shore diving in Bonaire is the best, but the rocky entry can be a hassle. Matthieu's house solves that problem beautifully! Set up your equipment in the shade, walk down the steps and jump in. Great reef and you probably won't see any other divers besides your buddies. Those lounge chairs are perfect for relaxing after your dive. I read three books while I was there. Might have read more but I need to learn Dutch if I'm going to take advantage of the library. Four of us went down and it was unanimous : perfect house, perfect weather, and perfect host (don't get the big head Matthieu). As Arnold would say: I'll be back!
