Located midway between two popular dive/snorkel sites in Bonaire's chic Sabadeco neighborhood, our beautiful new studio with 16ft ceilings and reliable trade winds has a private gated walkway to the beach. Pool & garden are for your private use only.

The space

Casita Andrea is a studio for one or two people that is located midway between the Andrea I and Andrea II dive/snorkel sites in Bonaire's Sabadeco neighborhood. The studio, which was completed in late 2013, has a private garden, a pool and a private gated walkway to the beach between the Andrea dive sites. The studio is connected to the main house (Villa Andrea) but it is completely separate, and only rented when the main house is not used. The garden and pool are for your use exclusively and our high garden walls ensure complete privacy.

The studio has 16-foot ceilings and traditional wooden louvered windows and doors. The high ceilings and good exposure to the trade winds provide a consistently cool, comfortable and fresh interior. A ceiling fan and air conditioning are available, but you will rarely need these. The studio has a large bathroom and a full kitchen with lots of counter space and a gas cooktop. Note: the oven you see in the pictures does not work!

Because the building is so new, there are a few caveats. First, the oven you see in the pictures is not yet working. Second, our home built solar hot water heater only provides reliable warm water in the afternoon on sunny days. Third, as you can see on the pictures, the garden is a work in progress and our plants and trees are not yet fully grown.

Our studio is ideal for active vacationers. You can put on your dive or snorkeling gear in the studio and walk straight into the sea across the street. If you want to dive or swim at night you have access to our private Sabadeco pier only a five minute drive away. And there are at least 50 easily accessible dive sites within a 20 minute drive.

In addition to well-behaved people we gladly welcome well-behaved pets.

Interaction with guests

Our property manager will meet you at the airport, take you to the studio, and will be available 24/7 if you need anything. His airport transfers are included in the one-time cleaning fee.

This studio is worth the money. Hans is realy a nice guy and every time available on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN). You also have a manager who is right there if you call him. Apart of this you are total alone in this paradise. We spent a week of our honeymoon in the apartment and it was realy awesome. In front of the house you have a realy good divingspot and your private space to watch the sunset over the caribean sea. Beside that the studio was realy comfy and clean, we loved it. But to reach the city you have rent a car or a scooter...but there are many pleaces to do that So get ready and enjoy the time in this awesome studio. Greetings from Germany

The location and the island and the house are great. The jets work in the very private pool so that is nice. I liked that the nonstick pan is in great shape, and that I had what is needed for cooking. I was very impressed by the easy availability of quality groceries. Not all islands can boast that! Mosquitoes are an issue. I almost gave only 4 stars because of the mosquitoes, but they appear to be an Island problem, not something specific to the house.

Staying at Hans' place in Sabadeco was wonderful. The apartment was clean, spacious and comfortable. The adjacent garden with swimming pool that is part of the big house was lovely. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom was tidy. The house is located just behind the beach in the Sabadeco area, which is quiet with the exception of a lonely donkey... Kralendijk is a 5min car ride away so you can be secluded if you want. It's perfect for divers/snorkellers with easy access to the beach and the Andrea I and II dive sites. Communication was easy and smooth. Both with Hans prior to our arrival as with Baasje, the property manager on the island. Baasje also rents out cars, which is handy cause you need one on Bonaire. Besides that he is a really nice guy that made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended place, we will definitely return here if we go back to Bonaire. Kim & Elbert

Anything was very Good!

This place is amazing. Hans created a paradise on paradise and the privacy of the studio makes you feel like you have your own private island. The studio has everything you need and the location is perfectly situated close to any amenity that you need and all the dive/snorkel sites are easily accessible. Perfect for a relaxing and romantic getaway.

The Studio is a wonderful place, attached to Hans his beautiful house. The high ceiling is great and the use of the garden and the swimming pool wonderful and very private with an Asia/Middle Eastern feel. Sabadeco is one of the most beautiful coast lines of Bonaire in a luxurious villa complex. The Studio is very well equipped, spacious with a great bed and shower bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped. You literally cross the road to the private gated entrance to the beach where you will find one of the best snorkel and diving places. The beach is right between Andrea I and II. Hans is fast in answering and wonderful to communicate with. He sends you a great, complete guide about the house and things to do. Baasje, the house manager, is accommodating and welcoming. Make sure you close all the shutters to get the most out of cooling the appartment, the airco works fine then. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommended.

What a fantastic place! Cute little studio with a beautiful yard with a perfect little pool to cool you off. The beach is just across the street where one of the dive sites is located, which was great! The donkeys came by which was hilarious and we fed them carrots! We did have an issue with the wifi (not Hans' fault- it was the Internet company), but Hans went above and beyond to fix the issue right down to letting the neighbors know about it so they actually let us use their password! The neighborhood is cute and just north of town, which was nice. The AC wasn't as cold as we would have thought but the breeze was so strong that most nights we just had the windows open and that was fine. We didn't have trash bags and toilet paper so we had to go buy those, which wasn't a big deal but something to be aware of if you rent this place. Great affordable option for two people for sure! Definitely will be back!
