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. A good time for buying a house on Bonaire

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

Characteristic of living on Bonaire is the freedom. In contrast to Europe, where there are many 3-storey terraced houses, you hardly see that on Bonaire. Many ground-level spacious homes, luxury villas by the sea or houses with ocean view. But also nice residential areas with a gated community with a 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 and a permanent contract. As a result, obtaining a mortgage can sometimes be difficult. Especially since 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 are dependent on one of the banks or insurers on the island.
