Overview

About the property

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Incredible location for lovers of the sea. Open the front door to a sunny and airy room that flows out onto to private covered deck and across the small beach into the sea. Swim, dive or snorkel right here!

The view from downstairs and from the master bedroom balcony is breathtaking. Palm trees frame the vista of the Caribbean with the island, Klein Bonaire, in the distance. One of Bonaire's famous dive spot buoys floats just to the right while sail boats slide past just off shore. Comfortable deck furniture provides the perfect place for wine and snacks while watching the pelicans feed or dophins swim by, or the spectacular sunset.

Downstairs the full kitchen is on the right as you enter the house with a large L-shaped counter and 4 counter stools for eating and visitng with the cook. Farther on the right is a desk for your computer or other items, and then the dining room table with chairs. Should you plan on entertaining, there are 7 dining chairs scattered in the house and on the balcony. On the left downstairs are the stairs up to the second floor, a bathroom with shower, and the living room area with a large sectionall sofa and tables. Tall chests hold the tv, dvd player, CD player, books, puzzles ,etc.

Upstairs you find the two oversized sunny bedrooms, both with private bath rooms and walk-in closets. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. Both bedrooms are air conditioned. The master bedroom has a small balcony overlooking the sea that is wonderful for morning coffee.

The townhouse is built Island-style with tile floors, concrete walls and lots of windows to let the clean cooling trade winds flow. We have used these features to create a non-toxic refuge for our vacations: We use organic linens and towels where possible. We use only non-toxic fragrance free cleaners and soaps. No insecticide use is permited, inside or outside (only people friendly items like boric acid, diatomaceous earth, etc.) Even though Bonaire has excellent chemical free water desalinated from the sea, we have included a quality water filter in the kitchen.

If you are not familiar with Bonaire, you are in for a delightful time exploring this blend of Caribbean and Dutch culture! Everything from the architecture to the restaurants share this mix and the people are fun and friendly.

About The Owner

As a marine biologist, I adore Bonaire and the care they take of their reefs. I love spending time in the water checking out the exotic species and their behavior! Every time I go, I see something new!

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2008

Why The Owner chose Belnem

My husband and I spend a lot of time in the Caribbean vacationing, but we both felt an instant connection to Bonaire and Lighthouse Beach #5. We waited for years for it to become available to purchase - and are glad we did! It has the best of both worlds - being only 15 minutes to Kralendijk andl the shopping and restaurants, and yet off the beaten track with lots of quiet and privacy. There is no other place on the island that I have seen with the water view and accessability, even for a lot more money!

What makes this townhome unique

One of the true benefits of staying at Lighthouse Beach #5 is Francey. She and her husband, Eky, are 'Bonhandyman, Inc.' and she makes sure everything is right at the townhouse. Not just completely clean and maintained, but she will take care of almost everything the guest might want, from help with cell phones to problems that might arise. Francey is a blessing indeed!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is where I wished I lived.

Having the beach literally in your backyard is a treat of a lifetime. We stayed for four magical weeks July-August 2017. Everything works, and the few things things awry were fixed right away by the local handyman Eky. There is a bonus bathroom on the ground floor, and the greatroom layout in the ground floor is great. Washing machine! We were able to open the windows and sliding door have a good breeze throughout our stay. The sunsets were amazing.

Wonderful place, will be back soon, I hope.

Great location, well priced

  • 5 of 5

Just got back from Bonaire. We really enjoyed this home. It was well maintained, clean, and just the right size.

The pluses:

1. Location, location, location - - the nightly sunsets became a MUST SEE EVENT

2. As I said, it was clean and well maintained

3. Price was right, if not even, a little low for the value

4. Great owners to deal with before our stay. Gave us lots of good advice before our visit, some contacts on the island, etc.

The minuses - these were VERY MINOR

1. Personally, we'd have like a little firmer mattress in the master bedroom. But that's just what we like.

2. Again a personal preference, I love to cook but the kitchen was a more typical island style (small appliances). We knew this going in so its not a complaint. The place was just so nice I would have enjoyed preparing some fancy dinners.

We wouldn't stay anywhere else now

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for the last two years and wouldn't stay anywhere else now as it is so beautiful and close to the ocean. It has one of the best dive sites right outside the back door. You really can't get any closer to the ocean.

The condo has everything we need and has the best sunsets.

An exceptional Bonaire experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Bonaire to dive several times over the past 10 years. We always vacation in a condo with an ocean view and have stayed in some lovely units. LHB5 was definitely the best! The ocean view cannot be beat and the beach is quiet and beautiful. The condo included everything for which we could possible ask- plenty of towels, full kitchen, deck chairs, television with DVDs. (We watched “Children of the Wind”, a documentary about native World Champion windsurfing kids, included in the condo library. It was incredibly inspiring!)

Needless to say, we had plenty of time to relax and enjoy our wonderful 2 weeks. We can not say enough kind words about the property. We just absolutely love it. Thank you for opening your home to us, we appreciate it and hope to return soon.

Tranquil beachfront

  • 5 of 5

What a treasure! The unit exceeded all expectations - when we arrived tired from an early morning flight we found a sparkling clean, fresh-smelling townhome with the best front porch ever - right on the beach! We celebrated our 30th anniversary with our 15th visit to Bonaire-and we have found our new favorite place to stay. We are so grateful to the owner for her kindness and helpfulness in getting us settled. We wouldn't change a thing about it-an absolutely perfect place to spend 2 weeks in paradise!
