Our Team

Peter van Dusseldorp

I’ve always had the dream to live on a Caribbean island. In 2015 I made the move to the beautiful island Bonaire and have been here since. After working in the hospitality industry in The Netherlands for several years it was time for a new challenge, to become a dive instructor! For a little more than 4 years I worked as a dive instructor and manager of a dive shop, learning all the best spots and tropical fish on the island!

Since I met Eef, we dreamed of having our own business and at the end of 2019 we got the opportunity to take over the business where Eef had been working for the past 3 years.
As of February 1st 2020 we are the proud new owners of Sunrentals Bonaire, an incredible and exciting new opportunity!
The personal contact and a high level of service is important for me. You can rent a villa or apartment everywhere, but that little extra service can make your holiday unforgettable!

We didn’t just fall in love with each other, but also with the island. We try to share our passion of the island with you from undiscovered small beaches to the best restaurants!

Bon Bini na Boneiru! (Welcome to Bonaire!)

Ready for a new adventure, I decided to pack my bags and move to Bonaire. This was in 2015. My motto was: I’ll stay as long as I like it. As I write this, it is 5 years later, and I can’t imagine moving back to The Netherlands anytime soon. What a great island!

Since my first job experience as a teenager I fell in love with the hospitality industry. Being part of making your experience unforgettable is what I like most about it. No surprise that I started to study Hotel Management in 2008. After several amazing jobs in hotels in The Netherlands and abroad, I learned about SunRentals in 2017. During my 3 years of working for SunRentals, I experienced the field of vacation rentals and private accommodations. How amazing was the offer of Family Cieremans to follow in their footsteps and take over their business that they worked on for 20 years! With even more passion and enthusiasm, I will be welcoming you at one of our accommodations! See you soon!

In 2011 I got the chance to work in a resort on Bonaire and since day one I fell in love with the island: the daily sun, crystal clear Caribbean sea, relaxed habitants and the beautiful culture. Once I returned to the Netherlands, where I was born, the love for Bonaire remained. And that’s why I (finally!) booked a one way ticket to Bonaire in April 2021 to go on a new adventure. It’s one of my best decisions ever.

In the previous years I have already worked in the hospitality industry. I had some amazing jobs in hotels in the Netherlands and on Bonaire, where I tried to contribute to an unforgettable stay of our guests.

I started working at Sunrentals Bonaire on April 1st, 2022 and here I have the same goal: together with our team I really want to take care of your worries and do the best I can to make sure you have a fantastic stay on ‘dushi Boneiru’. Hopefully, you fall in love with Bonaire the same as we did!

Like the Bonairian say: once a visitor, always a friend!

In 2019 I got to know this beautiful island through an internship, and always said I would come back. In September 2022 it was finally time to leave the Netherlands completely behind and take the step to move to Bonaire for an indefinite period.

After years of welcoming guests to the hospitality industry, it was time for me to take on a new challenge. Luckily Sunrentals came on my way very quickly and I have been working here full-time as a Rental Agent since June 1st.

I hope all our guests fall in love with this beautiful island as much as I fell in 2019. On Bonaire you can not only enjoy the wonderful weather and beautiful nature, but also the very nice people.

I am really looking forward to letting our guests experience a great time on this island and I am therefore happy to provide the best tips and tricks about Bonaire.

See you soon!

After going on holiday to Bonaire a number of times, I took the big step in March 2021 to move to this beautiful island. From moment one I felt at home and now I can’t think of a nicer place to live. I love the culture, the friendly people, the wonderful weather and the beautiful beaches. I really love it here.

Over the past 5 years I have gained a lot of experience in the hospitality industry in both the Netherlands and Bonaire, of which the last 2 years as a Supervisor of a beach bar. I like to be in contact with people and give them an unforgettable holiday.

I have been working at Sunrentals Bonaire since July 1st, 2023 and with all my positivity and knowledge of the island I will show you the best side of our beautiful Bonaire!

Hopefully see you soon!
