My husband and I loved our stay at La vita è bella. The house is big and the wind goes right through it, so you need no airconditioning. The owners had fun decorating it, you can see that.
This is the second time we have rented this house. Villa e Bella is a beautiful home located in the hills of Bonaire overlooking the town and Klein Bonaire.
The home is appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable month stay.
There is a washing machine for beach towels and a dive tank in the garage to rinse and hang your dive gear.
We spent most days- enjoying breakfast- lunch and dinner at the pool. At night the pool is lighted and the lights in the town make the home seem magical!! We enjoyed the nature of Bonaire every morning waking up the the parrots, and yellow birds just outside the doors.
Located in a Bonairan community, close to dive sites and restaurants, we always enjoyed the ride home.
Marcel is next door and always close by for any needed information. Hans and Marcel were also easy to reach and very good about returning emails and phone calls.
We had a wonderful vacation !!
Staying at a private house can be hit or miss, but Villa la vita e bella looks as good or even better than the pictures. We couldn't stop talking about how perfect the house was, from the breathtaking views to the pool for after diving relaxation, everyone was surprised how the plan of the day ended with...."then we will hang in the pool before going to dinner". Knowing it was a private house we planned ahead by bringing pool floaties and few things for the 1st morning till we could hit the store, which all worked like a charm. Not only do we want to stay here again we are already trying to plan our next trip.
We spent a wonderful three weeks at La Vita è Bella. The house has all the amenities we needed and was in a quiet part of the island yet quite close to the city, shopping areas and snorkeling spots. We greatly enjoyed the beautiful pool and the outside dining room with a wonderful view of the island and Klein Bonaire. We have been to Bonaire now 8 or 9 times and this was definitely one of the best, if not the best place we have rented. As I mentioned all the appliances we needed were there, the property manager is a phone call away and lives next door (no worries, he will leave you alone to your privacy) and very helpful if you need it.
Finally, given the reason that many people go to Bonaire is to dive, I will say that though we don’t dive ourselves, the area set up for divers was quite elaborate, something we haven’t seen in other villas we have rented.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this beautiful villa and I know for sure that we will be back.

We very much enjoyed this great villa with a beautiful view on Kralendijk. It's well appointed spacious and the caretaker offered us a warm welcome. The kids loved the pool and the rubber ducks! We went out to explore Bonaire and really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere.
