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.

Guest access
Guests have full and exclusive use of the garden, including the pool. Everything is 100% private and surrounded by high walls.

Other things to note
The studio does not have a TV but the Internet is fast enough to stream movies on laptops and iPads.

The studio is on a quiet residential street. There is a short gated walkway across the street which will take you to the beach between Andrea 1 and Andrea 2. There is rarely anyone on this beach and it is a great place to watch the sun set with a beer or cocktail. From this beach you can also walk into the water to snorkel or dive.
