Salentein, a beautifully appointed villa directly at the Caribbean Sea, on one of the most beautiful shore-diving spots of Bonaire's westcoast. The modern design villa is both very impressive and relaxing.
Open air living spaces provide a truly spectacular 180 view of the ocean, the island of Klein Bonaire and the Goto mountains. Almost every day you can enjoy the passing dolphins, flamingo's and the breathtaking Caribbean sunset.
Recline onto the pillow top bed of the impressive master bedroom with small walk-in closet and a truly unique all-glass double shower; a sight to behold. The four other bedrooms are also supplied with box-spring beds, fresh hotel linens and towels, air-conditioning and LCD-TV/cable.
Prepare a crisp breakfast in the kitchen, fully equipped with Miele stainless steel appliances and Nespresso coffee maker. While Salentein’s soft colored matt marble floors, shuttered windows and ceiling fans provide for a cool bliss in this tropical gem.
Whether you enjoy alfresco dining or settle back into the poolside lounge-beds. Take advantage of the wonderful jet streamed pool or gym, or choose the ocean for a quiet moment of snorkeling. Rinse off at the pool shower under the Palm trees, and prepare for another day in paradise!

The Caribbean island Bonaire is situated just north of the coast of Venezuela. It's close to Aruba and Curacao and part of the Netherlands Antilles.
Native language on Bonaire is Papiamento but English is widely spoken.
You won't find miles of sandy beaches and endless palm trees though. In fact, it's a fairly rocky and rugged little island. It has a unique look and character and some very interesting places to explore.(Bonaire is known for its 'pioneering role' in de preservation of the marine environment.
Bonaire is also known to have excellent conditions for windsurfing, snorkeling and scuba diving. In fact Bonaire is one of the world's top dive destinations. The water is crystal clear, and there are dozens of dive locations around, many of which you can access right off shore.
Bonaire has a tropical climate. Average year round temperature is 81 degrees Fahrenheit with a daily variation of about 10 degrees. A steady cool breeze blows in from the east. (So steady that some trees - divi divi trees - grow in the winds direction).
The island is small - it's only 24 miles long and 7 miles wide. There are only a few main roads, so you really have to make a serious effort to get lost.(The local population is less than 12,000 and the place has a small town feel to it. Everyone knows everyone else, and there's no shortage of friendly smiles as you travel around the island. When repeat visitors are asked why they keep coming back year after year they say: "it is the warmth and friendliness of the people".
Bonaire has a rich mixture of food and over 70 different cultures to draw recipes from. There are many excellent restaurants.

This villa really outstanding, the decor and furnishings are fabulous. The luxury surroundings are such that you do not want to go anywhere else!
We enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen on evenings in after a night dive from the villa. The diving immediately in font of the villa was lovely, and what luxury to just come up the stairs back to the villa. Dining on the open terrace during sunset was a wonderful experience.
When we could drag ourselves away from the sumptuous villa we enjoyed the fantastic restaurants, the food on Bonaire really is one of the best that we have come across in the Caribbean.
Driving and diving around the island is very easy.. the diving really is one of the world's best. Although we are divers there are other things to do, if you can pull yourself away from the villa, the wonderful relaxed
atmosphere of the Caribbean mixed with the good service make it a perfect place for anyone looking for a fantastic holiday!
Thank you once again for your kind hospitality.
We will be back!
