UNIQUE MagnaPool™ swimming pool: MAGNAPOOL IS MINERAL WATER FOR SWIMMING POOLS

The MagnaPool™ system delivers a healthier and more environmentally friendly alternative to traditional salt or heavily dosed chlorinated pools.

Water that is rich in Magnesium & Potassium minerals.

Water that never leaves a chlorine smell or salty residue on your skin, nor does it discolour blonde hair.

Water that is extremely gentle and therapeutic on sensitive skin.

Water that is therapeutic for your body and beneficial for your health and well-being.

JUST CHILL ON BONAIRE!: So you don't want to go anywhere so what do you do on Bonaire? Simply throw on some snorkel gear and check out the Caribbean sea life and grea coral. The waters are shallow and reefs go on and on. Take a nature hike with or without a guide. The trail is easy to follow and you'll see local flora and fauna- parrots, lizards, iguanas, and so much more. Take a dip in the oceanfront MagnaPool or just relax in one of the chaise lounges by the sea or on the pool deck. You really do forget to count the days when you are by the sea!

Activities & Dining Near Villa Crown Ridge: There is great snorkelling in front of the house and several excellent dive operations nearby. The tropical trade winds generally blow from east to west. On the east coast of Bonaire is Lac, a bay closed off from the ocean by a coral reef lying in knee-deep water. The bay is an ideal windsurfing location. The fast-growing group of kite surfers can get their adrenaline pumping on the island's west coast, near 'Atlantis': a former diving location at the southern end of the island. Lac is about 15 minutes away and is a fun way to spend the day. Rent a windsurf board or rent a paddle boat, take a snorkel trip or dive trip, shop in the gift shop or just enjoy the beach dining. RumRunners is also just 1,5 miles drive where there is a wonderful restaurant and bar. In Kralendijk you will find a lot of restaurants one of our favourites is “It’s Rains Fishes” but if you want a more formal and romantic spot, just head to the Tipsy Seagull, you will feel like a god on Bonaire!

Welcome to Bonaire!

Many descriptions and slogans have been written about Bonaire: Best Kept Secret, Unhurried, Unspoiled, Unforgettable; Diver's Paradise; and the list goes on... The fact is that all these statements are true, and then some. Another truth is the statistic that over 55% of arrivals on Bonaire are repeat visitors!

There are a number of reasons people visit our island. First timers generally have heard about the climate, the water, the sun and what there is to do. When asked, repeat visitors generally say that they did not have enough time to do all they wanted to on their first visit. 'It is the warmth and friendliness of the people' that keeps visitors returning year after year.

Bonaire has the reputation of being laid back, slower paced and very tranquil. The good news is that while this is all quite true, the island also offers a lively nightlife, fun places to visit and world class restaurants

Fabulous House - Fabulous Location

  • 5 of 5

A five star property with thoughtful owners who have made the effort to make sure their renters have everything they need for a successful vacation in Bonaire. Located at Andrea 1 dive site, you can walk out across the patio, down steps, and right into the water. Perfect for both snorkelers or scuba divers. With cleaning ladies and a pool attendant who come twice a week the house remains in tip top condition. We enjoyed eating at the numerous restaurants on the island. A number were exceptional. Our favorite was La Catina. If you prefer to eat at the house, the large grocery store, Van Den Tweel, carries a staggering selection. We rented a truck which was perfect for navigating the island's roads. It is a must if you are planning to go into the Washington-Slagbaai National Park, which we did on several occasions.

As snorkelers we visited quite a few locations along the east side of the island from the south to the north, including Klein Bonaire which has a magnificent beach along with good snorkeling and Lac Bay which is a unique experience with its shallow waters and long hike out to the reef. Each location offered something different, but we snorkeled Andrea1& 2 the most during our 4 week stay. These two dive sites never disappointed as far as seeing a numerous variety of fish from the ubiquitous parrot fish (queen, stop light, rainbow), trumpet, french angelfish (there were two who were extremely friendly), filefish, trunkfish, and tangs to the occasional turtle, spotted eel, bonefish, black margates, and more. Other dive/ snorkel spots had more variety and healthier coral , but the convenience of Andrea1&2 was a bonus we exploited.

There are the local lizards, including the iguanas that showed up whenever we ate outside on the patio/deck. Some of the little ones were very bold. We did not feed them although it seemed as if that was what they expected. However their boldness did result in some great pics. I loved seeing the flamingos at the shallow lakes within the park and at the southern end of the island near the mangroves.

I highly recommend this villa. For our first trip to Bonaire, it was the perfect home base from which to experience this lovely island. Thank you for sharing your lovely home.

We stayed here five years ago and were finally able to return this year. There

was no question when I arranged our trip where we would stay. We Love

this place.

Fly in, go unpack, go to the supermarket and you are set for the week.

Awesome Villa, fantastic snorkeling right out of your back door. I can’t think of anything that could make this any better. Actually I can, we are going to return in two years for 2 weeks instead of 1!! No question where we will be staying.

The house exceeded our expectations, the views were serene, and the property was secure.

  • 5 of 5

From the moment the property manager Inge arrived at the airport and we followed her to the house, the experience was excellent. The house is eqipped with everything you could possibly need for a gourmet meal, the air conditioning systems were very efficient, the towels and linens were luxurious and the country of the Bonaire was the so quaint and wonderful! We are a family of four: two young adult daughters joined us- the privacy of the three bedrooms was terrific. The outdoor pool, shower and lounging area provided the perfect oasis after scuba diving, sight seeing, and dining. Definitely A+

Better than the pictures

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect place!! We have been to Bonaire 10 times in the last 7 years and this is the only place that we will stay at again. Perfect for divers with one of the best dive sites (Andrea 1) on the island simply down a flight of stairs. We'll be back!!

Spectacular Place, beautiful and well maintained; but bad mosquitoes

  • 4 of 5

This is a very beautiful villa, clean, modern, high quality and well maintained villa. One of the nicest places we have stayed at. Perfect access to a good dive site down a few steps; wonderful patio with sunsets over the ocean every night, beautiful pool, deck chairs, and even a gazebo with cushions for relaxing. Extremely well equipped with modern kitchen appliances and utensils. Very clean and also a very responsive property manager.

I would say this was perfect and would have given this a five star rating BUT for the really bad mosquito problem. We live in Florida and also have spent many years in third world countries in the tropics, so we know mosquitoes. But the swarms of mosquitoes around the side of the villa and under the patio were not normal, and were the only thing that made our stay less than perfect. I traced them to one source and told the property manager who vowed to treat after we left. It's a shame because mosquito control is not difficult - identify the standing water and spray the area regularly. We spent many hours zapping the dozens of skeeters that came in the villa every time we opened the patio door - time that could have been spent relaxing.

I still strongly recommend this property, but advise any potential renters to be sure to get confirmation that management are practicing regular mosquito control.
