About the property

Villa directly at the beach, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, great dive facilities

The villa is build at a unique location on Bonaire with direct access to the ocean. A beautiful tropical garden, which will attrack the (humming)birds, sundeck and porch make this a very nice place to relax and enjoy your holiday. It doesn't matter if you are with a group of divers, as a family or in a wedding group. During the day you can snorkel or dive the famous Bonaire reef right in front of the house. The sunsets from under the pergola or the sun bath area, directly located at the seaside, are stunning to see.

Sunset Villa has five bedrooms. Every room has a safe, TV, refrigerator and air-conditioning. It has just recently been redecorated. After a busy day you can relax in the garden, take a nap in the hammock, read a book, work on your tan or enjoy a lovely barbeque in the garden.

This villa is ideal for divers. Just outside the backyard there is the famous dive side named 'Cliff'. The house also has beautiful underwater pictures on the walls, all taken on Bonaire.

The house has been renovated with divers in mind. There are secured lockers with special hangers for dive gear, two rinse tanks and an outside shower.Next to the lockers there is a covered area to dry your dive gear. There is also a dive bench, easy to put on or take of your dive gear. On the same bench you also can store your air/nitrox tanks safely.

This is all easily accessible from the parking lot, should you do a dive on any of the many other dive sites on Bonaire.

Keywords: direct access to the Caribbean sea, diving facilities, (wedding) groups, family's, alarm system, wifi.

About Lambèr Dohmen

In 2003 our friends and we visited Bonaire on holiday and fell in love with the island. In 2005, after several vacations on Bonaire, we had the opportunity to buy this villa at the seaside and we did. We immediately started to renovate the villa and upgraded it for divers. Two years later we packed our stuff in the Netherlands and left for Bonaire, for good. We bought a small house to live in ourselves, which provided us with the opportunity to keep the villa in premium condition for other people to enjoy.

Lambèr Dohmen purchased this villa in 2005

Why Lambèr Dohmen chose Bonaire

We bought this villa because we liked the view over de carribean sea from the first time we were standing in the garden of the villa. After all the renovation, which we knew we had to do, we could enjoy the sound in the early morning and the evening, rolling waves and nothing else. AMAZING.

What makes this villa unique

The villa also has an alarmsystem to protect your valuable things.

Wifi to stay on contact with your family and friends and of course the social media.

There is also a cell Phone with a local number. To make your restaurant reservations or to contact us. You can contact us 24 hours a day.

We have made an arrangement about using the swimmingpool of the Hamlet Oasis resort which is just behind us. When you rent the villa you can use the swimming pool whenever you want.

Quality house and attentive owner

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks @ BSV for a family vacation with our parents. We found the house and property to be comfortable and exactly as advertized. We enjoyed our stay and thank Lamber for the hospitality.

Dubbel warm bad

  • 5 of 5

Duiken op Bonaire, is als duiken in een warm bad.

Als je dan ook nog eens verblijft in Sunset Villa kom je in een dubbel warm bad.

Wat een heerlijke ontvangst van Lamber, gelijk met een heerlijk gekoeld drankje de Villa en tuin verkennen.

Wij hebben 14 dagen mogen verblijven in de schitterende Villa.

Wij hebben als duikgroep OSV De Lamantijn Castricum al heel wat villa's versleten op Bonaire. Maar Sunset Villa staat echt op nummer 1.

Aan alles is gedacht zeker voor duikers, spoelbakken, afsluitbare kasten en een heerlijke buiten douche.

Achter in de tuin het huisrif Cliff waar we elke dag en nacht wel hebben gedoken.

Sunset Villa is een echte aanrader als je met een grote groep gezamenlijk wilt genieten, duiker of geen duikers fantastisch.

Lamber en Jacqueline, hartelijk bedankt voor de gastvrijheid, en we komen zeker terug.

Ajo, Edwin R. Quitz.

The perfect location and amenities for a group of divers!

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough good things that I can say about this house, location, amenities, and property manager/owner. The location is fantastic. The house is incredible nice with many upgrades and thoughtful touches throughout. It is nice that everyone has their own space and bathroom. Outdoor dining/seating areas are perfection. We travelled with our 5 month old, there was a group of 9 of us all total, they had a great set up for the baby as well----crib and high chair---very nice. Seriously I have NOTHING negative to all far exceeded any of my expectations. Lamber and Jacqueline were so responsive and kind---we will be back!

SCUBA Tribe in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Lambér & Jacqueline have created a house that is perfect for a tribe of Divers ranging from 17 - 58. The kitchen was well appointed with everything needed to dine in with 10 people. The ocean side dining area was used every night and the bbq often. We really liked the privacy of the individual bedrooms and the fact that we did not have to share bathrooms! This house has full dive gear rinse tanks, gear drying hanging, gear lockers, outdoor shower, and clothes drying rack. These features were fantastic for the divers in our group. Not to mention getting full tanks at dive friends less than 50 yards from the house.

The hospitality of Lambèr and Jacqueline was extrodanary!

The diving in Bonaire is unmatched for beauty, quantity and ease of access. This was my second trip to Bonaire and I can't wait for a second visit to Bonaire Sunset Villa!

Adventure - R & R - Ocean View!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time on this scruffy Caribbean island doing many adventures - snorkeling, windsurfing, kite boarding, diving, exploring. Having such a great home base at Sunset Villa made all the difference. We were ages 2 - 66. Lamber & Jacqueline are owners extraordinaire, helping in any way possible: arranging the shuttle from airport, organizing car rentals, a doctor visit, toddler toys, crib, and high chair. Being near Dive Friends Bonaire's Hamlet Oasis shop is a plus, and what a treat to have a reef out the back door. We are already planning another trip. The local pool here at home seems lacking with no fish and we miss that tropical air a lot!

Spring Break 2016 = Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

Two families with a total of 8 people arrived at this little slice of paradise for our Spring Break. Ages ranged from 6-50. Two of the kids were 16 and 17. There was enough for everyone to do. The pool across from the house is VERY close and convenient. The water behind the house is so beautiful and the snorkeling and diving was great. Highly recommend renting a car. We did not intend to initially. We planned to taxi where we wanted to go. But, we were so glad to have transportation to go see whatever we wanted whenever we wanted.

Lamber was so accommodating and had the house ready for us upon arrival. He could not have been more attentive. The house truly is nicer in person than it even appears in the photos online. It is very comfortable and quite nice. Plenty of cooking utensils, plates, glasses, etc. Many restaurants and grocery stores on the island so it was easy to get what you need quickly.

We had Norca and Lula come cook for us several of the nights that we were there. It was worth the money, simply delicious. They were so sweet and willing to make virtually anything you want. It was nice not to have to cook or find a restaurant, especially the first night we arrived. If you are considering hiring someone to cook, we recommend this option as well.

The sunsets behind the house every evening are breathtaking!! We would certainly return to Bonaire and can't imagine staying anywhere else but here.

The Bonaire Sunset Villa is located in HATO, a quiet neighbourhood. The dive shop, Dive Friends, Hamlet dependence, is a stone throw from the villa. It's a drive through, so very easy to get your dive tanks. Also to get the latest information about what kind of special things people saw lately in the water.
