    Default Newbie, Saying Hello

    My name is Steve, and the wife is Elaine. We live in Calgary, Canada. We have just had our offer accepted on a home on Bonaire. It is sea-side in the Sabadeco Crown Court area. We plan on spending a good portion of our winters at the home. We take possession in mid April, but our first stay will be delayed as the current owner had the place rented out for parts of April and May. We are not sure if we will continue renting the villa or not as we move forward. When investigating buying in Bonaire we came across this forum and it has provided us with some very useful information. So we might well have a few questions over the next while.

    Cheers,
    Steve and Elaine Tanton

    Hi Steve and Elaine,
    I'm in a similar situation myself, and I encourage you to continue participating in this forum. I bought a condo and right now occupied by the seller's guests, and I'm waiting to see about staying there or renting it out. I can tell you there are drawbacks for people who own property on the island who are not living on the island, but I'm staying here and can give you a few tips. Consider getting in touch if you want to learn more or consider having someone do property checks for you.

    I'm envious. I would move to Bonaire in a heartbeat.

    Best wishes for your new home.

    Welcome to BT Steve and Elaine!

    As a fellow Calgarian having lived sea-side on Bonaire for 6 years, I can truly appreciate your passion for Bonaire
    I'm in Calgary now (freezing my butt off!!!) and am looking forward to being back to the island in May. Feel free to PM me if you want to chat about island life.

    Sunny smiles,
    Leanne
