“Paradise at your door step”
Reviewed October 28, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I have been planning a two week holiday for a year, first week for diving with a group of friends, second week for the family, organized a surprise birthday party and renewal of the vows.
These two events requested some serious logistics and local organization.
Lambèr and his wife Jaqueline went far and beyond their role of house owners, and helped me out throughout this entire year of planning.
By the time the two weeks started we were already good friends...to the point that I included them in our festivities.
The house is perfect for divers and for a family getaway... Lambèr is on top of every details, and when a small problem occurs it is addressed or fixed within 24h.
Highly recommended, and don't be surprised if you get invited for a Polarcita at one of the local Snaikys!

“Great Place to Stay - Right on the Water!”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We had a great vacation at Bonaire Sunset Villa. This is our second stay at this house. Both times we have had 4 couples and we’ve always had plenty of room, nice accommodations, bedrooms are very private with their own private bathroom. There is parking for two cars. The kitchen has everything you need, modern appliances and plenty of room to work. The back porch area is large enough to seat a large group for a meal and also has a seating area. There is an area for washing diving/snorkeling equipment, hanging it up to dry, and lockers for securing it. The back yard is landscaped nicely with shaded areas for seating. There is a large table for meals right along the water as well as lounge chairs with pads and a hammock. And you can’t beat the view. Some of our best snorkeling this trip was right beyond the house including an octopus and a lionfish. There is a nice swimming pool with lounge chairs close by that we are permitted to use. Wifi and many TV channels are available including the major American networks (out of Miami).
Lamber, the owner, is very attentive to your needs. I can’t say enough about the place. I would highly recommend it.

“Perfection”
Reviewed August 10, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

A group of friends and I booked this villa having never been to Bonaire before, so we did not know what to expect, and I have to say this place exceeded all of our expectations. The owner, Lamber, is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.. He was incredibly helpful, in helping to put out holiday together, and very quick to communicate with any questions long before we even went on holiday. He helped put our diving package, and car rental together to take any stress off of us. His wife, Jacqueline, was also there to greet us when we arrived, and had the fridge well stocked with supplies for us. In addition to this there was a mobile phone provided for the villa at no extra charge for booking local restaurants, and giving us fast contact to Lamber with any questions that arose during the trip.
The villa itself is stunning, very well appointed with 4 large air conditioned bedrooms that were easily able to accommodate our group. There is also a large kitchen lounge area and several shaded areas outside that were nice to get away from the heat of the sun.
In terms of using this villa for scuba diving I doubt you could ask for better. There is a large space to set up dive kit and also outdoor lockable storage cupboards that was easily able to hold our 5 sets of kit, and could hold several more as well. There were also 2 large kit rinsing sinks and drying racks. It is also a very well positioned villa, as the local dive shop to pick up new air/nitrox tanks was only 3 doors away so it was very easy to swap tanks.
To top this off as well, at the back of the villa is a set of stairs that go directly to the "cliff" dive site, which my group thought was one of the best dives on the island and made for the most stunning night dive we had on the island as well.
I would not hesitate to use this villa again, the only downside was that we had to eventually leave this slice of paradise.

“We've been here before and will return again (and again)!”
Reviewed July 28, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We enjoyed it so much last year, that we stayed an extra week this year! We even brought more of the family here for their first time and they all loved it - saving up for the next time already! We were a group of 8 and the property is a perfect size. The owners have been busy keeping the decor up to the highest standards! The welcome is fantastic and the location is a perfect balance of convenience to dive sites/outlets and peace and quiet! Very good restaurants just 5 minutes away and a fantastic BBQ if you want to stay home and watch the sunsets! We're picking the next dates soon!

“We will be back!”
Reviewed March 15, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We were looking for a villa that could accommodate 10 of us for a diving trip. From the first stages of our booking, the owner, Lamber, was extremely helpful. He gave us a hand booking our dives and renting our trucks, and when we arrived in Bonaire, he even had snacks and beverages waiting for us. Very nice touch!
Bonaire Sunset Villa has everything we were looking for in a Bonaire vacation rental. Location is great - quiet, not too far from everything, and most importantly, just steps from the ocean! The villa itself is great - comfortable bedrooms, nice sized kitchen, and lots of living space. Everything is well cared for, and any minor issue - such as a bulb that needs replacing - is quickly taken care of by Lamber, who does a fantastic job with the villa.
The main attraction is obviously the proximity of the Cliff dive site - we spent a lot of time there doing long shallow dives, looking at the turtles and octopus...
We were amazed by the villa, and we definitely will be back!

“Another great experience.”
Reviewed February 9, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This our second year staying at Bonaire Sunset Villa and it was once again more than we expected. The House, well you just can't say enough about it. Everything has been well thought out from the rooms, to the diving lockers rinse area, the grounds the dive spot right off the property, even lawn chairs and coolers were available for our own outside house excursions. But even beyond that it's the experience that comes from being catered by Lamber. He's amazing. From the beer/snacks he had available at the house when we arrived, to ensuring our dive arrangements we wonderful. In short, we just love Lamber and this house! Planning our 2016 trip already!
