This beautiful villa on the green hill in the beautiful residential area of Santa Barbara has a truly magnificent view from the porch and garden. The pool with deck-terrace makes it tempting to spend a day in and around the house, although Bonaire is of course ideally suited for diving, snorkeling, windsurfing or kite surfing.

See also the various reviews of our house.
Due to its central location, the house is the ideal base for your holiday on Bonaire: the center of Kralendijk and the boulevard are only a 10-minute drive away, as are most diving and snorkeling spots. the historically interesting town of Rincon and the Washington Slagbaai nature park are also perfectly accessible.
At the house we rent a guest apartment with 2 bedrooms, a bathroom, private living room and kitchen plus porch and terrace. The main house has 3 bedrooms and two bathrooms, a living room, spacious kitchen and a very large porch. The house is ideally suited for small groups and families (max. 10 people). We do not rent the apartment separately, only in combination with the main house, so you have complete privacy in the house and garden. Please note: it is a quiet residential area so the house is not suitable for parties and groups with many children because the neighbors in the area could be inconvenienced.

There is a communal laundry room, with ample storage and hanging space for your diving and snorkelling gear. The more luxurious residential area of Santa Barbara is very quiet and safe. At the house we rent a pick-up (5 pers.) with air conditioning, particularly suitable for divers and to explore the island. Of course you can also rent two or three cars. The cars can be parked on site.
Some of our many positive reviews:

We recently spent 10 days in Villa ElDorado and couldn't have been happier with the property selection for our 3rd family vacation on Bonaire. The house and garden are as beautiful as the photos, and the pool is really special. The home is well-maintained and clean and is very practical for a large group. Although we have never met, I feel we know the owners well through our e-mail correspondances! They have been very accommodating and have a dependable couple managing the property on site. As Bonaire is a small island, nothing is too far away. Villa ElDorado is located in a quiet residential neighborhood on a hillside with a lovely breeze and wonderful view of Klein Bonaire! I would certainly recommend this home to a friend.

What a wonderful house, we loved it there! The view is so beautiful, you keep looking, while the sky keeps changing and the sunset is breathtaking. The enormous balcony with roof on the 2nd floor is a great place, also when it is raining, which is seldom, but you have a really nice spot there. The two kitchens make it an easy place to occupy with two families. We love all the nice details like the hand made signs from driftwood, next to the pool and at the entrance, so much fun! Nice things to do: favorite spot was Jibe City, the beach and the windsurfing. But the spontaneous BBQ on the beach was also great fun. The Washington Slagbaai Park was amazing, really beautiful. Great restaurants: City Café and Captain Don's Habitat/Rum Runners. We enjoyed your great hospitality and hope to come back soon, thank you so much!

We could not recommend this listing higher. We just returned from our 2 week honeymoon at the villa- and we will be back! This pictures of the place do not even to it justice- it was absolutely beautiful, super clean, and had everything you would need. The deck is gigantic and you have a beautiful view of the ocean- we ate out there every night! Look out for the gecko behind the fake gecko on the wall- he hangs out there every night. The kitchen is well equipped and beautiful, so you can cook your own meals on vacation, which is great. The car is another awesome addition- not having to rent a car is a huge plus, and it was a great truck. The pool is awesome and very clean as well. It is a short drive to town, and a very good central location to get to wherever you want to go on the island. We had a great experience with the owners and as well with the caretakers who live on Bonaire- they were incredibly helpful throughout our trip. We'll definitely be back with friends & family!

What a fabulous villa this is... Absolutely beautiful inside & out. A lot of care & attention has been spent on getting it together & it's greatly appreciated. it's greatly appreciated. The garden is very pretty & as the description says, it's private so you're not overlooked. When we arrived the place was spotless & Ellen was a great help with local knowledge & any extra information we needed. She is a lovely lady to deal with on the owners behalf & nothing is too much trouble.

Hello, we are Anouk and George and we live in Zandvoort (North Holland). We fell in love with the island a long time ago and now also have a lot of work as architects. We try to stay there for at least three months a year, but we also love to let others enjoy our house and the island. A private pool and a view over the Caribbean Sea is the pinnacle of luxury for us and there is almost always wind for surfing or kiting :)

 The villa was just lovely Eldorado, everytime you needed was there plus more. The porch or lanai was great for the view, coffee, dining or just relaxing. Our grandchildren loved the house and pool and all the birds and donkeys and iguanas. The kitchen is very well done, lots of dishes and pots and nice appliances. The beds are comfortable and air-conditioning and was nice. The street and neighborhood are very good and the ocean views are wonderful. The house was very clean and Pieter firing care of the minor problems for us. The owner is very easy to work with and we appreciate how attentive she is to your questions. Snorkling, the scenery, the national park, the Sorbon area are not to be missed. We liked Cactus Blue, Mi Banana, and Norca's restaurants. There is a grocery That is new, More for less, you would turn left at the end of Kaya Korona away from town. It was Dutch foods, good produce and good meats. We would recommend this and would come back. Thanks Anouk and George

 We really enjoyed our stay at the Villa Eldorado. It was very quiet and relaxing and the views were spectacular. The pictures do not do the views and property justice - it's much prettier! We were a group of 8 adults in Bonaire to dive and relax! The villa was perfect for us as there was space for everyone to do What They wished after the dives ... take naps or read on the breezy covered lannai or down by the poolside deck, swim, watch TV, cook, or play games at the table. We never felt crowded - which is a big deal for a large group. The property is Surrounded by trees so we saw lots of butterflies, Hummingbirds & parakeet, etc. The street That the house is on is very quiet so there was not a lot of traffic and the property was fairly private - which we really appreciated. It was well equipped for divers with rinse tub and storage room for gear etc. The villa itself was clean and well-furnished, and the utensils for cooking and eating were well-stocked. Pieter the caretaker was very nice and most of all prompt, helpful and responsive. The villa owner was very responsive and answered all of our questions promptly and thoroughly prior to arrival, All which was very reassuring. This fired the worry out of booking the property, Especially one 1000's of miles away. It was very easy to work with the owners. Overall, we had a great time and the property was as advertised, if not better than advertised. We highly recommend staying at the Villa Eldorado. Thanks much!

 We have been very lucky to experience this new house with our family (3 small kids) this May (2011). No word is Exaggerated: great view / great pool / porch fantastic / super rooms. Villa has lots of space and is all equipped. We truly enjoyed our island stay.Very easy for family with young children (beach / surfing / snorkeling), nice (family) restaurants or grocery shopping easy for eating (BBQ) at home. Porch very tempting :-) Villa is conveniently located Between beach / park and main city. Great new car to explore the Island (with kids in the back!). Are definitely coming back!

 We had a wonderful stay in El Dorado with our family (two teenage daughters). From the porch the view of the ocean and the island is really Phantastic. You can see That the owners are architects, the villa is tastefully decorated and has all the luxuries you need. Lots of space. Kids loved to hang around in the pool. Bonaire is great for water sports, Especially diving, snorkling and windsurfing and all interesting places to visit are easy with the new Ford Pick-up that come with the house. We have definitively go back there next year.
