Buying a house on Bonaire

Staying and living on Bonaire is wonderful, because you mainly live outside here. Nice outside on the porch with a good glass of wine or in your hammock by the pool. This is all possible and all year round.

Of course you also have your daily routine here, but when you are free you also have a real holiday feeling. For example, a day at the beach, snorkeling at Klein Bonaire, a trip to Washington Park or cozy at Sorobon on the beach. And if you decide to stay here, you will soon want to buy a house on Bonaire.

Housing offer

The space is characteristic of living on Bonaire. In contrast to Europe, where they have many terraced houses with 3 floors. You hardly see that here. Many ground-level spacious homes, luxury villas by the sea or houses with sea view. But also nice residential areas with a gated community with communal swimming pool. Everything is possible. There is still something to consider when buying a house on Bonaire.

Buy a house

Buying a home on Bonaire is not equally feasible for everyone. Usually, someone must have equity capital and a permanent contract. As a result, obtaining a mortgage can sometimes be difficult. Especially because banks only provide a loan up to the age of 65. Banks in other countries do not provide mortgages on homes on Bonaire. As a result, you have to rely on one of the banks or insurers on the island.

Or would you rather prefer to rent

A rental home is ideal if you want to stay on Bonaire for a certain period of time. But even if buying is not yet feasible at the moment. Then a rental home is the best choice. This can be rented from just a few weeks to long-term rentals.
