Sea la Vie has 3 Bedrooms (all with AC) 2 full Baths, 1 half bath and will sleep up to 6 guests. A unique feature of this luxurious home is the two story floor plan and multiple decks and porches that provide both private and shared space for your guests. A group can be enjoying the pool and pool porch, while another couple is upstairs cooking on the back deck, while others enjoy a quiet drink and the sea view from the upstairs front terrace. All windows and sliding glass doors are fully screened.

This is a new house, so everything in it is fresh and new! At over 2,800 square feet, this house is much larger than most vacation rentals. Three bedrooms include: 1 king bed, 1 queen bed, and 2 twin beds (which can also be configured as a king bed.) The mattresses are new and comfortable, and the bedding is high-quality, hi-thread count. There is a choice of memory-foam and down-alternative pillows on each bed.

Create great meals in the huge fully equipped gourmet European Kitchen with granite countertops and bar, oven, smooth top cooktop, microwave, dishwasher, side by side refrigerator freezer with ice and water through the door. Ian is an amateur chef, so he has stocked our kitchen with high quality cookware, knives and supplies.

Create tasty drinks in the bar area with the supplied Tropical Drink recipe book. You'll find bar utensils, a blender, and specialty glasses for margaritas/mojtios, martinis and highballs.

2 fully tiled bathrooms with granite countertops and walk in showers. The additional half bath provides a third toilet and sink area.

Area Information
Sabadeco is an upscale area of Bonaire, close to all activities. We are located in the oceanfront development of Crown Ridge, Sabadeco. Our home is just across the street from the beach and Andrea 1 dive reef. There are underground utilities, street lights, paved roads and lovely homes, surrounded by walled gardens.

Our house reef is Andrea 1, one of the best shore diving sites on the island, just walk in the water! It's also frequently named as one of the top snorkel sites.

We are always amazed at the abundant sea life on our house reef, we usually see sea turtles in addition to schools of fish among the coral.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What are the most fun things to do at our house?
A: Walk down the path to our house reef, Andrea 1, and enjoy diving, snorkeling, swimming or just sitting on the sand and enjoying the sunset with the provided beach chairs. Use the tropical drinks recipe book to make a tasty drink in the great room bar, grill out on the deck, and enjoy an evening swim in the private freshwater pool.
Q: What makes Sea la Vie so special?
A: Location, of course, but the unique size and floor plan of this house is ideally suited to a private romantic getaway for 2, or a family or friends group of 6! There is a huge greatroom/bar/kitchen with outdoor deck for the times you want to gather as a group, but the two story floor plan with THREE outdoor decks/patios provides everyone with privacy when they'd like to be alone. The king and queen bedrooms both have private doors to the outdoor spaces. And, we as owners think we and our property manager, Marie are pretty special too! We're nice, easygoing divers ourselves, and are easy to work with. Our property manager meets you at the airport, escorts you to Sea la Vie, and provides an orientation to the house. She is on-call during your stay if you need assistance, and comes back mid-week to provide fresh towels and linens. There is no extra charge for any of these services. We've priced Sea la Vie well below comparable properties, because we'd like to build a core group of Sea la Vie lovers that return every year!
Q: What's great about the inside of the house?
A: EVERYTHING IS NEW! Have you seen our video? Go to you tube and look for "Sea la Vie Bonaire." We just bought this house and began renting it in 2016, so you will enjoy a beautifully decorated and furnished home with new, upscale furnishings, comfortable beds, quality cookware and other amenities.
