About the property

3 bedroom, two bathroom, contemporary and cosy villa

Enjoy Bonaire while you are staying at this beautifully styled and fully equipped 3-bedroom villa!

See, feel and live Bonaire and the Caribbean climate and nature. That's what Kas Kris offers you. As soon as you open the sliding doors, outdoors and indoors become one beautiful large area. Kitchen and living, big porch, terrace and pool are all connected.

What does that mean? Well, try to imagine yourself:

You are just awake, you walk from your bedroom into the kitchen and tell your friend, who is making coffee, how you would like yours.

You walk the stairs into the pool, and swim leisurely to the other side. You sit on the bench in the pool. You look at the sea and Klein Bonaire. A huge freighter or maybe even an immense cruise ship slowly passes. You have to keep looking in order to see it move. Take your time. Then you look closer and you see the birds in the trees; they are bright yellow! Trupials and parrots, and now you hear them twitter. What are they talking about? Oh, and see, there is an iguana! And another one!

When you are finished looking at the flora and fauna, you turn around, and you see the house, the porch and dining table. Your other friends drinking their coffee at the huge lounge sofa wish you good morning.

When you leave the pool you let the sun and the wind dry you a little bit, you put on your hammam towel and you saunter to the cabana. That is where you are going to drink the coffee your friend made for you.

And this is only how the day begins!

This villa is very private and tranquil. It is situated at the end of a blind alley on a hill with great views. It is also just a 10-minute drive from Flamingo Airport, Kralendijk's restaurants and a lot of diving spots. Best of both worlds, right?

Well, what more can I say? Check out the details on this site.

Come and see Bonaire! Come once and I guarantee you’ll come again.

About Krista Tesselaar

My name is Krista, I designed this house myself and I have thought about literally everything you can see and find in this house; from the huge blackboard in the kitchen to the hamam towels, from egg timer to electricity points, from windows to wardrobes, from light switches to septic tank, from toilets to towels.

I am very happy with the result. Come and see yourself!

best, Krista

Krista Tesselaar purchased this villa in 2016

Why Krista Tesselaar chose Santa Barbara

I have been to Bonaire a few times, and I love the laid back attitude of Bonaireans, and the visitors of Bonaire. No hurry, no stress. Just be and enjoy...take it easy.

Besides this, Bonaire also offers great nature of course, both above and under water.

So I decided I wanted to be part of this. Kas Kris is the result...

What makes this villa unique

Kas Kris is very private situated and offers you rest and relaxation. When around the house, you will mostly see the sea and nature. Even while cooking a meal in the kitchen, you will be looking over the pool to the sea and Klein Bonaire! On the other hand, you are close by diving spots, the airport and Kralendijk with its restaurants. All just a 10-minute drive away.

Beautiful, modern, tranquil, clean.

  • 5 of 5

Tucked up in the hills, the villa is quiet and peaceful. The decor is soothing, uncluttered and modern without being devoid of personality. The real gem is the deck overlooking the pool. Great spot to hang out and listen to birdsong - orioles, mockingbirds and yellow-shouldered Amazon parrot.

Beautiful modern villa

  • 5 of 5

The villa was equipped with everything you need. There is such a great cross breeze my only recommendation would be to add some screen to the front door and sliding doors. I know you’re looking for the open concept, but with the mosquito and nats you do not want them in the house. Overall great trip!

Another fabulous trip to Bonaire, and Kas Kris was outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Krista was a pleasure to deal with, and the property manager Nathalie made our stay pleasant and enjoyable. From the cold drinks and snacks waiting for us to the bottles of bubbles to enjoy during the holidays, everything was perfect! The location north of town in the hills is our favorite place to be - beautiful views of the sea and Klein Bonaire, and fireworks on New Years Eve. Access to northern dive sites is a quick 5 minute drive. The villa is large and fully equipped, and was not lacking in any area. Can’t say enough good things about our stay and wouldn’t hesitate to stay at Kas Kris again!

Perfectly appointed. We had everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

Such a warm welcome! Food for the evening and next morning was waiting for us, including two bottles of wine, one white and one red, along with a Happy Birthday card. No long lists of rules. Perfect dive gear storage and cleaning tanks. Loved the chalkboard wall. Plenty of room for 3 couples. The swimming pool is beautiful and felt so good after a day of diving.

Clichés zijn waar, dus ook voor Kas Kris. Het bood ons alles dat we hadden bedacht en meer! Niet in de laatste plaats omdat het huis bij aankomst groter en mooier was dan de foto’s konden overbrengen. Binnen is het fris en strak en is er meer dan genoeg ruimte voor 6 personen. Leuk dat de keuken naar buiten is gericht waardoor je er altijd bij bent, ook al sta je te kokkerellen. De fijne buitenruimte met loungehoek en terras zijn erg relaxed als je even niet in de zon wilt zitten. Erg handig zijn ook de spoelbakken voor je duikspullen, die je dan ook weer uit de zon, in het schuurtje kunt drogen. Kroonjuweel is wat mij betreft het zwembad met uitzicht op zee! Voor elke plons tussendoor en vooral aan het eind van de dag met een biertje of een cocktail kijken hoe de zon in de zee zakt. We zijn er nu één keer geweest, maar dit was zeker niet de laatste!

Grote klasse !

  • 5 of 5

Wij, opa en oma, zijn gisteren teruggekomen van 2 weken Bonaire in villa KasKris.

De eerste week waren we er met nóg twee volwassenen en twee kleinkinderen, met z'n zessen dus.

Wát een prachtige villa en wát een comfort. Meer dan voldoende ruimte, alles erop en eraan.

Geweldige indeling, alles gelijkvloers en in elkaar overlopend: slaapkamers, huiskamer, keuken, enorm terras, zwempool en een spannende tuin in ontwikkeling.

Niets gemist, complimenten.

Heerlijk gezwommen, veel duik- en snorkelmogelijkheden en dat alles dichtbij huis.

Rondritten over het hele eiland gemaakt ( het natuurpark Slagbaai was zeer indrukwekkend met zijn ruwe wegen, enorme cactussen, vreemd gevormde bomen, maar ook romantische snorkelbaaitjes).

En dan na thuiskomst de warmte van je af spoelen onder de buitendouche en met een plons het zwembad in.

En zelfs met z'n allen in de bijna-buitenkeuken met groots uitzicht, eten klaarmaken zónder elkaar in de weg te lopen.

Nogmaals: grote klasse.

We komen zeker terug Krista!

Ben en Ria te U.
