About The Owner

We are both architects and we love Bonaire. We try to go there at least twice a year with our two sons. We are into watersports and diving.

Note: if you are looking for a smaller house or if there is no more availability on the rental-calendar, we also have the Sabal palm Villas (villa the spot) for a maximum of 6 persons (3 bedrooms), see listing #90259 on this website. Also with private pool and all the features that this Eldorado Villa has.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2011

Why The Owner chose Santa Barbara

The best place to get away from our hectic life :)

What makes this villa unique

The view is fantastic, you will be tempted to just stay on the porch and look around you all day. The private pool is only a few steps away.....

The house is built on a beautifull sloped site on the hill, divided in two sections. From the street you enter the first floor, wich is a complete villa with large livingroom, big open kitchen with restaurant range gasstove and three bedrooms plus two full bathrooms. Downstairs, entered from the garden and from outside stairs, is the second house, a.k.a. guest-apartment, wich is also a complete house with livingroom, open kitchen with same gasstove, two bedrooms and one full bathroom. Both could be used separately, but is is especially great for large families and groups to have one big house and at the same time some privacy when needed. Downstairs is a porch plus private deck, and the pool is directly accessible. Upstairs is a gigantic porch for all to sit and relax, and the pool plus deck is accessible via the stairs next to the house.

Wonderful Villa Eldorado

  • 5 of 5

My advice... Rent this place! My family and I came out for 8 nights during the recent winter break. We simply had a great time. Anouk has set up a very professional system for the rental. She arranges for a driver (we had Hank) to pick you up at the airport. Once at the house there is a reliable pickup truck right on the property available for rental. Ellen is the very pleasant caretaker who meets you at the property and gives you a tour of the house and how everything works. She provides you her contact info if you have any questions about the house or island. There's even a cell phone in the house if you feel the need to carry one. It's as easy as can be!

The house itself is perfect. It's located in a quiet, safe neighborhood, on a hillside, just a quick drive from the town. It's stylish and well furnished. Beds are all very comfortable. The large lanai overlooks the pool and has 270 degree ocean and town views. Landry on the property. The kids just loved the pool. The garden and landscaping was impeccable.

Bonaire was such a great low key destination. Just great snorkeling all over the place; but particularly around the island of Klein Bonaire. We saw rays, octopus, turtles, large barracuda, bonefish, eels, on and on... Bonaire Secret: there is a nice small beach at the "Red Beryl" dive spot where you can swim, hang out, and watch the kite boarders.

Thank you Anouk, Ellen, and Hank for a wonderful trip!

Private, huge, good view, nice pool

  • 5 of 5

Wau! The villa was huge, much bigger than we thought! And it was very clean and nicely decorated. The balcony/terrace upstairs was also very huge and very nice place to eat, chill out, enjoy the scenery, barbecue etc... There was mosquitos in the time of sun rise and sun set but no other times.

We used only the upstairs apartment and pool deck, so we have no idea about the downstairs apartment. There was no stairs from upstairs to the pool deck, we needed always to go around the villa to get there. Pool deck was well big enough for the two of us and all the huge iguanas and parrots who visited us daily. Pool itself was great!

The villa was in very quiet and private place. It was after all very easy to find and the owners pickup truck was perfect way to drive around the small island.

Only thing bothering us was that we spent there 12 nights and there was no cleaning included in the middle, so the floors did get very dirty at least in the balcony.

We highly recommend this place!

Awesome place!! Great Owners! Highly Recommend!!!

  • 5 of 5

I and my four friends absolutely loved the house! We had a blast staying there, it was everything we expected and more. Nice clean ample space, not to mention the beautiful pool that is overlooking Bonaire! The property manager was very sweet showing us around. If your ever thinking about vacationing in Bonaire then villa ElDorado is the place to be! I can't wait to come back :-)

Thank you again!!!

Feels like a home and has all the conveniences

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 10 days in Villa ElDorado and couldn't have been happier with the property selection for our 3rd family vacation on Bonaire. The house and garden are as beautiful as the photos, and the pool is really special. The home is well-maintained and clean and is very practical for a large group. Although we have never met, I feel we know the owners well through our e-mail correspondances! They have been very accommodating and have a dependable couple managing the property on site. As Bonaire is a small island, nothing is too far away. Villa ElDorado is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on a hillside with a lovely breeze and wonderful view of Klein Bonaire! I would certainly recommend this home to a friend.

Super relaxed private getaway with stunning view, great porch/balcony en beautiful garden with pool

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderfull house, we loved it there! The view is so beautiful, you keep looking, while the sky keeps changing and the sunset is breathtaking. The enormous balcony with roof on the 2nd floor is a great place, also when it is raining, which is seldom, but you have a really nice spot there. The two kitchens make it an easy place to occupy with two families. We love all the nice details like the hand made signs from driftwood, next to the pool and at the entrance, so much fun!

Nice things to do: favourite spot was Jibe City, the beach and the windsurfing. But the spontanuous BBQ on the beach was also great fun. The Washington Slagbaai Park was amazing, really beautiful.

Great restaurants: City Café and Captain Don's Habitat / Rum Runners.

We enjoyed your great hospitality and hope to come back soon, thank you so much!
