“Windsurfing paradise, spacious villa, thoughtful owners”
Reviewed February 26, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We spent a week at the Villa during February. We had two families in the villa: myself and my wife, and my sister with her husband and 2 kids. We arrived late in the evening and the owner arranged for some food in the fridge bought for us. This was totally unexpected and really appreciated.

The villa is nicely situated, close to the windsurfing rental places. This was particularly convenient: we would windsurf in the morning, come back for lunch and then go back and windsurf in the afternoon. There are very few villas close to the Lac Bay and we were lucky to get this one. The alternative - Sorobon Hotel is no competition.

The villa is close to the water and you'd be exposed to gorgeous views, especially from the second floor balcony. Unfortunately, you can't swim right there and need to go the beach is about a mile away (You need a car).

As in most villa's in Caribbean, we had air conditioners in bedrooms, but not in the living room - we used fans instead. During the day, you can open doors and windows and have a nice breeze. However, at night, the doors and windows needed to be closed to prevent mosquitos getting in.

The villa is nicely furnished and we had everything we need. The food shopping is about 10 min drive from the Villa.

Overall, we were very happy with the rental.

“Fantastic windsurfing base”
Reviewed February 25, 2014 for a stay in February 2014

Caribbean Wind & Sun (Ann) capably handled the booking, warning us of flight rescheduling and helping to adjust dates. Marco and Greta, who manage the property, were there to greet us. Sunday night arrival precluded shopping, so they kindly filled the fridge to avert starvation. The villa is lovely and and the view across Lac Bay obviates the need for wind forecasts or beach webcams -- you can see whether windsurfers are zipping around or slogging. The gear rentals are a 3-min drive away. The place is well-furnished; the nearby Sorobon -- though lovely in its own way -- is no match in the comforts department. WiFi speed was a pleasant surprise as well.

Things to watch out for: 1) The horrid potholes on the beach road to gear rentals 2) Scorpions; my wife stepped on one in the bedroom; Greta provided first-aid advice and psychotherapy over the phone 3) some mosquitos -- bring bug spray 4) Wind; sitting outside and reading would be only possible with stone tablets or massive e-readers. But then, who would complain about wind on a windsurfing vacation?

“Best month of my life”
Reviewed February 20, 2014 for a stay in January 2014

I spent a month at Lac Bay Villa and it felt like home. (But much MORE luxurious!!)

The villa itself is beautifully decorated, clean and open with large velux doors and windows. Set in place with what must be the most extrodinary and breathtaking views on the whole island with aqua blue water and picturesque skies, Lac Bay Villa is really rather special. The villa has a large balcony which is the best way to watch the sunrise and set but also perfect for taking in the surrounding scenery and wildlife which includes commuting flamingos, Lac Bays famous igunas, cute but noisey vibrant coloured parrots and other various types of exotic lizards and birds.

During my time spent in Bonaire I learnt to windsurf and have gone from a total newbie to planing in the harness and footstraps. Shallow water and perfect wind ment I was flying in no time. With just a 3 minute drive from Sorobon beach and excellent windsurf hire from Jibe City.

I spent my less windy afternoons out in (the back garden) bay supping around the mangroves with baby turtles and barracuda!!

I met some wonderful new people and everyone on Bonaire is friendly and welcoming. I wish my stay was forever. A place too perfect to make up.

“Where better to spend Christmas?”
Reviewed December 26, 2013 for a stay in December 2013

I flew out on the 10th of December to stay in Lac Bay Villa and try my hand at windsurfing. Upon arrival into Bonaire after the short drive from the airport I made it to the place that would be home for the next 3 weeks and was extremely pleasantly surprised! The front garden is practically the sea, the open plan downstairs is modern and refreshing and the view from the balcony is second to none! Having travelled from Newcastle in December the weather was the real change, despite it being nice and warm even late into the evening the ample amount of air conditioning and doors allowed for comfort, rum and socialising each day!

The villa is only a couple of minutes drive from Jibe City which is where i spent most days learning to windsurf. All the locals and instructors (and other visitors) were extremely friendly and as soon as I got here I felt a part of a family. If you're not into windsurfing there are plenty of incredible diving and snorkeling spots and the national park was also a day well spent!

The entire trip has flown by, probably due to the amount of fun that i've had and i'm certainly going to miss this place when i end up back in the UK.

I can't stress enough what a great time i've had here on Bonaire and would highly recommend for anyone to stay here in Lac Bay!

“Perfect unspoilt location; amazing views across the Lac Bay,close to a sandy bay for windsurfing, swimmingetc”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Luxury spacious villa decorated to a high standard and very comfortable. Wonderful place to chill on the veranda admiring the colourful fauna and view across Lac Bay. Many days were spent on the sandy beach only 3 minute drive away which has all facilities; wind surfing, kayaking,swimming,snorkeling etc. We had fun paddle boarding to this beach from the villa. Also a 10 minute drive are Mangrove swamps where we kyaked through the entwining waterways and observed the natural wildlife; an abundance of pink flamingos etc. We had a memorable holiday here.
