I live in the Netherlands and own a house on Bonaire, in the Dutch Caribbean, which we have named Casa Pelicano. We use the house when we can, and during the rest of the year rent it out to others interested in spending their holidays on this great island!
Besides Casa Pelicano on Bonaire, we also offer a spacious farmhouse in the countryside about 30mins to the north of Amsterdam. A great place to stay with your family or friends!
