We're too new to have many reviews but what do our guests say? Read this email from our first guest in May:
Let me start by saying that this visit to the Bonaire was fantastic! I was totally impressed with our stay at LBR #13. It's neat to hear that I'm your first rental. Let me tell you what impressed me about our stay.
1. Your communication and organization. Before we even stepped foot on Bonaire, I was impressed with the
information and clear, timely communications you provided. I knew exactly what to expect and your instructions were perfect. Well done.
2. The 'Welcome Basket' - The initial supply of fruits, bread, milk, peanut butter and jelly, etc. This was a very nice touch and was very helpful since we arrived late. It helped us get to diving early the next morning without having to go shopping for food first.
3. The accommodations were clean and nicely decorated and everything was in working order. In fact, your puzzle artwork down the steps inspired us to do something to our own home back here in the US.
4. The scuba gear rinse basins and gear storage room was really nice. Every night we would let our gear drip dry outside for about 30-60 minutes while we ate dinner and then bring it inside to finish drying for the evening.
5. The kitchen was by far the best we've encountered during all of our visits to Bonaire. You had everything we could want for preparing meals... pots, pans, strainer, grater, even spices in cupboard!! If you didn't have it, I didn't need it! This means a lot. The last place we stayed, we had to actually buy a baking dish and skillet to cook our meals. (NOTE: We did leave some extra spices, salt/pepper, baking soda, flour, syrup, etc. in sealed zip-lock bags for Stephanie or the next tenants to use.)
6. The grill is really nice - We used this at least 4-5 times per week and it cooked steaks and burgers perfectly.
7. Air conditioning - The AC units and fans in the bedroom worked perfectly. I was a little concerned about not having AC in the downstairs at first. It was pretty hot upon the evening of our arrival. Once we learned to open the front door and back door and let the trade winds blow through, it was actually quite comfortable. After lowering our core body temperatures with a bunch of diving, we actually looked forward to the warmth some days.
8. The information on dive sites, restaurants, and other local attractions in the room. This is really helpful.
9. Stef was very friendly and helpful.
What are opportunities for improvement?
We had such a great time at LBR#13 that I cannot think of any way to improve it. All I can say is 'WOW!' You really exceeded our expectations. You covered all of the major items that I look for and you even got the 'little things' right. Keep this up and you should be very successful!
Triskadekaphile? Yup, when it comes to Bonaire, I'd say that pretty much sums it up. Hopefully, I'll be able to book #13 next time.
(Note: Stef is the property manager living next door and a Triskadekaphile is a lover of #13)

Loved our accommodations
We had a great time and loved our accommodations. Great place to stay with all amenities! Steps to ocean and pool! And a great price! Close to most dive sites the condo had everything from BBQ to internet, rinse sink and indoor drying room for gear Loved the bed in the master bedroom: would have taken it home if I could have: slept like a baby on it! Fully equipped kitchen: full size stove and fridge. And the island has several fully stocked supermarkets (as good as home wherever that is) Van Der Twill's(sp may be wrong) is less than 10min away and has a great wine selection & great beef!! We used Bruce Bowker's Dive Shop at the Caribe Inn and got great service for less than most other operators. Also want to there are lots of great restaurants on the island: Its Raining Fishes, Patagonia, Divi Flamingo and Sebastian's (the last 2 are less than 5 minutes from the condo) go! All in all we had a great time and hope to go back and would stay at #13 Lighthouse Beach again

Comfortable home away from home
Comfortable home away from home
We arrived about 9pm after an exhausting 5 different flights, one of which was 4 hours late. We were very pleasantly surprised to find foods and drinks left on the counter for us. There was fruit,coke,orange juice, peanut butter and jelly, bread, milk, and. Number or other things left for us. WE were so grateful, We were very hungry and thirsty. The condo was comfortably furnished, and very homely. The kitchen was well stocked with every possible pot and pan you could think of. We found every thing we needed and then some. There was a large grill outside, that we ultized a lot. The outside shower was great and very refreshing after a day on the beach and in the water. The bedroom mattress was extremely comfortable. The lady next door was very helpful and quick to answer any questions or help out in any way she could. What an asset for the owner! The area was peaceful and private. We didn't, have one issue with noise . I could go on and on about this wonderful place. I would highly recommend it to anyone. Thank you Stan, Audrey, and stefanie.

Family of 4 Divers
Family of 4 Divers
Our family LOVED our week long summer dive trip to Bonaire! We really enjoyed ourstay at LBR #13 as our "home away from home". It was a great value for our family of 4 divers and I don't think you can find a place with your own BEACH and a POOL for this price anywhere else on the island! We chose this unit as my girls liked the fact that they each had their own twin bed to sleep in for the week. The unit is well stocked with extra sheets and towels and the kitchen has enough gear to cook up a storm...which we did most nights. Our favorite part was that we could back up our truck to the back yard, unload our gear in the "buckets" the owners provide, wash our gear in the outdoor basin and hang everything up in a matter of minutes out of the direct sunlight because of the large palm trees in the yard. The outdoor shower was wonderful as well as the clotheslines on the side of the house for towels and suits. But the absolutely best part of the unit was the utility room behind the kitchen where we could store all our scuba gear x4, overnight. This place is well layed out for the diver and all their stuff! The owners were a delight to work with and they were quick to answer any and all of my questions before our arrival. There is a manager who lives next door if there were any issues, but we didn't have any. It was so nice to have some coffee, fruit, bread and other food waiting for us when we arrived from our 5 am flight! The only problem my husband noted is that a week was not long enough! We will be back... and it will be at least 2 weeks the next time. We enjoyed 11 amazing divesites from as far north as Nukove, then south to Salt Pier. We explored the island from a kayak in the mangroves as well as the back roads in Washington National park from our truck. Everything was accessable from this location.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We've been coming Bonaire to escape the Boston winters. Stan dives and does a little windsurfing. Audrey snorkels and just retired so she can spend February on Bonaire.
Why the Owner Chose Belnem:
We first visited Bonaire almost 25 years ago, staying at the old Sunset Beach Hotel. We loved the place, the nicest people, the diving, everything about it. We gave thought to buying something but there really wasn't much for sale back then, and with a young daughter we decided that it just wouldn't work for us at the time. Fast forward 20 years. Our friends, Mike and Craig, retired and started spending good parts of the winter in Bonaire, leaving their wives home to work (their wives choice!) Mike was either windsurfing or waiting for the wind and Craig diving every day and sneaking in some windsurfing. They were renting at various places, including Lighthouse Beach. We started coming down with their wives, Shelley and Karen (respectively) to visit in February, first staying at Coco Palm Gardens and then with all of them when they bought their place at Kings Beach Resort. Always a wonderful time, Craig and I diving every day, the ladies on the beach at Lac Bay while Mike was windsurfing. Cocktail hour on the beach every night followed by a great dinner, the result of either group cooking at home or at one of the many great restaurants like Wil's, Mi Banana or the old Cactus Blue. This year, while Audrey was hanging out with Shelley and Karen and some of their friends, someone mentioned this really nice place for sale next door so Audrey said we should go see it. I had no interest in buying anything but went along with it because that's how you stay married for 40 years. :-) LBR #13 was just such a great place that we came away thinking that maybe this was the time to fulfill that 25 year old dream. So, we took the figurative 'giant stride' into the deep water and here we are the new owners of this beautiful home.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
We are sure that once you stay with us you will join the league of Triskadekaphiles* We want this to be the best value vacation rental on Bonaire. There will always be cheaper rooms in less desirable locations but we strive to make LBR #13 the best value. No 'nickle and dime' add-ons for air conditioning or internet. No having to go to the lobby to share the wi-fi. There is even a private local phone for making dive boat and dinner reservations or placing your BBQ order at Bobbejans. Our new US based phone lets you stay in touch with home for free. While Bonaire is a very safe place, the added security of steel bars and a private document safe can provide an extra measure of comfort in your home away from home. *Triskadekaphile - lover of #13
