The Perfect Winter Get-Away!
The property is stunning. We especially enjoyed the large balcony with a perfect view of the
beautiful Caribbean Sea. The sunsets were amazing. The very best part (besides having a glass of
wine watching the sunset) was being able to snorkel right in the back. We snorkeled many
different areas around Bonaire but the best was right in the backyard! The accommodations were
clean and very comfortable. We hope one day to make it back to Bonaire and will definitely stay
here again. Thank you Walther for being a wonderful host and providing this wonderful place to
stay in Bonaire! We would definitely recommend!

Perfect place to reinvigorate your life!
Beautiful, private, ocean front condo! Gorgeous coral and water, swimming, snorkeling or scuba
diving at your doorstep. You are within minutes of Lac Bay for fabulous windsurfing and kiting!
Nicole and Walther are the perfect hosts. The condo is beautifully decorated in bright colors and
super clean.

Wonderful Time, Great Place!
Beachcomber Villa is fantastic! The location is ideal - one great dive / snorkel site right off the
property, and many more close by. Renting gear and getting tanks is also super easy. The view is
also lovely, not only the ocean but also of Klein Bonaire. The apartments themselves are clean and
versatile, with everything you need. Walter and Nicole are lovely people. They keep the property
in great shape and are very helpful for directions and recommendations, and in general, good tips
on how to get the most out of your stay in Bonaire. Walter even gave us directions to a seahorse!

We had a wonderful stay in this apartment. It is exactly as advertised. We had everything we
needed to easily make meals and live comfortably like we would at home (beach towels, cooler,
etc. were provided). I didn't do much remote work on this trip, but if I had to, the WiFi was fast
and up to the challenge. Nicole and Walther are lovely and helpful hosts who live right
downstairs. They helped us with arranging car rentals, renting dive equipment and connecting us
with our open water PADI certification course. You have access to a snorkel/dive site right from
the yard. We squeezed in a quick snorkel there on our last morning and saw flounder, angel fish,
puffer fish, and a small spotted moray eel just to name a few! I miss the view and the sounds of
the ocean already and can't wait to return!

Ohhh... and that view too!!!
This was our 4th trip to the island and we return to Beachcomber's every time! The apartment is
lovely, and the beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped for the self-catering
guest. The rooms each have a spacious walk-in closet with lots of hangers and a nice big safe that
will fit your laptop, cameras and several other of your valuables. The upper terrace has a propane
BBQ for grilling and is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee and sun bathe in the afternoon.
Down at the ocean is another spot to enjoy the view on the chair and chaise loungers.
Sundowner's are especially enjoyed from this lower area and is a great spot to catch up on the
day with other guests and the hosts while watching the sun go down over the water... You might
be lucky and catch a green flash too.
The hosts are super friendly and helpful with anything you might need just ask. They can even
grab a few items to stock your fridge if requested... which is really helpful when you have a late
arrival on the island and all you want before bed is to enjoy a cold beverage before unpacking and
settling in.
The villa is situated right on Bonaire's "The Cliff" dive site and some of the best snorkeling and
scuba diving is right out their front gate! is fabulous! The property has a rinse tank and to wash
your gear and a spot to hang it and let the breezes help it dry. At night it is stored in a secure gear
room. There are several restaurants nearby in a short 5 - 10 walking distance if you choose not to
cook in.
Definitely a two thumbs up spot to stay.

Wouldn't want to stay anywhere else
We recently spent a week with Walther and Nicole and it could not have been better. We first
stayed with them in 2018 and would have been back sooner if it were not for the pandemic. The
location is perfect. We were close to many restaurants and only a few minutes from downtown.
With a unbelievably beautiful view over the Caribbean Ocean, a great dive site at there place and
conventient facilities for dive gear it was great for divers or snorkelers. The apartment was
comfortable and had everything that we needed. The best part however were our hosts. They
went above and beyond any expectations. They arranged for our car rental and made excellent
recommendations for local boat tours. We enjoyed having a glass of wine with them while
watching the sunset. They are never intrusive but always ready to help in anyway that is needed
including taking me to the doctor when I had a medical issue on our first visit. You can't go wrong
staying with Walther and Nicole.

The view from the upper deck over the water is incredible!!! Walther and Nicole were the perfect
hosts. Both were extremely friendly and helpful.
Modern kitchen and renovations throughout
the property. Dive shop is a half block away. Some of the best diving on the island is located out
their back gate. You cannot find a better place to stay on the island. This place has it all.

BCV...a great place to stay, nice diving, wonderful hosts
My wife and I recently completed a two week dive trip at Beachcomber Villas. We enjoyed the
ultra clean, modern apartment; the beautiful vistas and sunsets; and the warm, blue water. The
photos and descriptions of BCV are all accurate, but hardly do justice to this wonderful, seaside
location. Walther & Nicole are helpful, genuinely friendly hosts who are respectful of your privacy,
but there when you need them, and are always available for good conversation while watching
the gorgeous sunsets from their front garden. The large, well appointed kitchen was a plus as we
prepared most of our own meals, and breakfast on the balcony, overlooking the water was part of
our morning routine.
We're divers and travel to Bonaire for the shore "dive freedom" it offers. BCV arranged our truck
& tank package and has excellent gear rinsing facilities and secure storage onsite. It has the added
benefit of an easy entry to the Cliff dive site as a house reef just out it's front, garden gate.
We had an excellent trip and will return to Beachcomber Villas on future Bonaire visits. It's a great
choice and a nice fit between "going it alone" or staying at a "dive resort."

Absolutely Amazing Again
This was our second stay at Beachcomber Villas. We came the first time in 2019 and loved it and
knew we'd be back. We just went again for our honeymoon and it was just as fabulous as the first
Walther and Nicole are fabulously friendly hosts. Nicole went out of her way to find us one day to
recommend the ostracod dive (easily a highlight of our trip). She gave us tips on where to do it
and how. Walther went above and beyond to help us repeatedly. Both are kind and fun. We love
our interactions with them.
Originally we stayed in apartment 2. This time we tried apartment 1 just to compare. Both are
lovely and we'd be fine with either for our next trip. I loved hearing the ocean and the gorgeous
views. Their dive accommodations are great. The rinse area, gear room, and library of dive site
and underwater ID books were helpful and appreciated. We enjoyed diving their local site and of
course the proximity to Dive Friends made everything super easy.
Honestly I could rave about Beachcomber for hours. The bottom line is the place is adorable and
comfortable. The view is phenomenal. And the owners are simply the best. We will be back and
we would recommend to anybody.

I had an amazing stay and loved the outdoor space and the hospitality of the hosts was terrific!
I stayed at the Beachcomber for 2 weeks and had an amazing experience! The view from the
balcony of the ocean was great and i enjoyed the sunsets daily from the terrace. The apartments
was perfect for me and everything I could have needed was provided. I loved the location just a
minute walk to Dive Friends dive shop and walkable to restaurants and a grocery store. But what
really made the experience great were the hosts Nicole and Walther! They went about and
beyond to ensure my stay was a special and memorable one!

Tranquil, beautiful accommodations with the best view of sunsets of Bonaire and your own
coral reef!
I've just returned from my third stay at Beachcomber with Walther and Nicole. Everything there is
just perfect: lovely apartment, perfect location, upper level terrace for great views. They could
not be more friendly or accommodating. Nice library of Bonaire and coral reef books, as well as
novels, just in case you run out of things to do! I'll be back. Again and again.

Beyond my expectations!! Very nice apartment, on the water, good ocean access. I watched them
clean the apartment for new arrivals and I've never seen such cleaning. Every drawer, cabinet,
and every surface was cleaned. Nice linens, and if you forgot something at the store just ask
Nicole or Walther, they may have what you need. They are by far the best hosts I've ever worked
with. So friendly and very attentive to what you need. And when they tell you "make yourself at
home", they really mean it. Walther went above and beyond to help me and my husband get the
best diving in on our month long vacation. Did I mention the dive site out back is one of the top
ones on Bonaire... and that for a very reasonable contribution, they have a boat that they will take
you out diving on. So many great things about Beachcomber Villas, we'll be going back for 2
months next year. Thank you Walter and Nicole for one of our best vacations ever.

Delightful oceanfront apartment with fabulous owner/hosts
We have stayed at Beachcomber Villas eight times, so obviously we love it. The apartments and
the villa are accurately depicted in the pictures and descriptions. The apartments are sparkling
clean and well maintained. Both have been recently redecorated and the bathrooms redone.
Walther and Nicole do all the cleaning and maintenance. The beds are comfortable; the kitchen is
well equipped; the free wi-fi is reliable and fast. If you need anything, just ask. Walther and Nicole
are fabulous hosts.
The apartments are not handicapped accessible (there are steep stairs), and not recommended
for children under 10 (the balustrade on the terrace is not child-friendly).
The quiet neighborhood where the villa is located is a couple of miles north of the town. Although
Walter and Nicole are wonderful about driving guests, a large 4-wheel drive vehicle is strongly
recommended for Bonaires abundant shore diving and snorkeling. There are a few restaurants in
walking distance, also a convenience-type grocery store.
Beachcombers facilities for dive gear are excellent. The gear room and outside drying rack are
spacious and secure. Theres a cleaning tank and outside shower. You can walk to the dive shop in
two minutes. One of the best snorkel/dive sites on the island (Cliff) is right out front. Walther
and Nicole also have a small motor boat and can take two Beachcomber guests at a time out for
private dive trips (advanced open water divers only). They can also take Beachcomber guests
snorkeling or sightseeing around Bonaire or neighboring Klein Bonaire. We thought the cost was
very reasonable.
We have always had interesting, friendly, considerate neighbors at Beachcomber Villas. Breakfast
together on the upstairs terrace and "sundowners" with Walther and Nicole down at the
oceanfront are just-about-daily rituals.
We prefer Apartment 2 (one bed) because it has better ventilation (we never use the AC); also the
kitchen is larger. Apartment 1 does not get good cross breezes. However, it does have a larger
bedroom with two beds. The building is remarkably soundproof. We rarely hear our neighbors or
the hosts downstairs.
Like all tropical islands, Bonaire has mosquitoes, so make sure you use plenty of insect repellent
before you go outside for sundowners in the evening.
Although the location is idyllic, its Walther and Nicole who make Beachcomber Villas the best
place to stay on Bonaire. Whether its an unexpected trip to the doctor, helping an injured guest
in and out of the water with their equipment so they can still dive, or locating your favorite flavor
of ice cream (!), Walther and Nicole bend over backward to make your stay a success. They
embody Bonaires motto, Once a visitor, always a friend.

Peaceful View
We loved the balcony and definitely the size of the apartment, we had enough room for all of our
stuff and extra space.
The apartment has a gas stove and we prefer to cook on gas. One night we cooked out on the
grill, it is wonderful to have that option. The outside area for rinsing our gear is outstanding and
with a private room to hang to dry. I can't stress enough how clean everything at this property is
maintained. The location is convenient to a grocery store, dives, downtown and dive shop. The
owners of this property are wonderful and helpful people, Walter even went with us on our first
night dive.

Most relaxing and beautiful location on Bonaire! W&N are fantastic hosts and took care of every
need, detail and answered every question. Corona safe location! Best dive/snorkel location right
in front of the house! W&N will assist you if needed. Private boot trip on request. From your
terras the most beautiful sunsets youll never forget! Cant wait to return!

Super luxury appartement experience!
It was really good to stay in Walther and Nicole's apartment. Very nice and helpful people. The
apartment is wonderfully luxurious because everything you need is available. It is spacious, clean
and the beds are comfortable. The look is modern and hip. The view is unique, wonderful from
the balcony or from the garden. There is a beautiful rife where you can go directly from the
garden for diving, snorkeling or for a nice swim. For divers you have space to rinse and store
everything. Diving school is 20 meters away. If you would like to dive into the pool, you can do
this across the street (5m) at Hamlet resort. This apartment and Walther and Nicole get a good
ten. We will definitely be back!

It's scubalicious!
This was our second stay at Beachcomber villas. When planning our holiday trip to Bonaire there
was no doubt in our minds that we would stay here again. We even made our schedule depend
on Beachcomber's availability.
Walther and Nicole are the ideal hosts: attentive, super friendly and professional. Somehow they
manage to give you all the privacy you need while always being available for inquiries, small talk,
our company during the gorgeous sunset views from the garden. The big upgrade from our last
stay was that now have their own boat--on which they're more than happy to take guests for
trips, for instance to Klein Bonaire.
The apartment has everything you need: it's spacious, well equipped--also for elaborate cooking,
and the patio is the perfect place to spend time in between dives (or other island activities).
Beachcomber provides all the needs for divers: a place to rinse and safely dry and store your gear,
gorgeous coral (the dive site "Cliff") accessible from the backyard, and dive shop at walking
distance on the Hamlet premises.
We'll definitely return!

Beautiful ocean view apartment and exceptional hosts!
We had the most wonderful stay at the Beachcomber Villas. The stunning view of the ocean,
makes you want to spend every evening on the terrace to watch the sunset. The easy access to
the beautiful underwater world, through the gate in the backyard, makes you want to snorkel
(and dive, if youre into diving), daily or even more than once a day. The apartment itself is
