Kralendijk condo description

Bon Bini. Welcome to Bonaire.

Wake up to bananaquits, troupials and parakeets calling. Throw open the room-darkening drapes to your stunning view of the Caribbean. Step onto your private, screened porch. See from Klein Bonaire all the way north to Brandaris, the highest point on Bonaire.
Relax with your morning coffee and breakfast on the porch. Decide on the red or blue flip flops, bathing suit or shorts. Spend your whole day having fun.
Come home to beautiful sunsets while relaxing with your favorite drink on the screened porch or sundeck. Have a nice dinner. Pick your next day’s activities. Drift off to sleep in your comfy bed. Then, do it all again tomorrow.

Now you’re on Island Time. Ahhhh

We chose our piece of paradise not only for its view but also for its peaceful and convenient location. You are only 75 – 100 feet from the Caribbean with easy access to the turquoise waters of Bari Reef. You have choices – enter from our sandy beach, our sundeck or our pier for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Bari, our house reef, is renowned for the greatest fish diversity in the Caribbean. Bonaire, consistently ranked as one of the best dive destinations in the Caribbean, defines shore-diving freedom.

Our studio’s location at Sand Dollar is perfect because:

You have the privacy, security, trade winds and fabulous views afforded by our second floor, oceanfront site
Have the services of our on-site Dive Friends Bonaire full service dive/snorkel operation at your fingertips- right next to our building. They offer guest gear storage, easy access to air, free upgrades to Nitrox, free weights and belts, rinse tanks, professional instruction, boat dives, island tours, kayaking and much more.
You can choose to use Bonaire Dive and Adventure instead. They too are a full service dive operation with gear storage and boat diving and are located next to our building to the south.
Far off the street with guest parking just across the lawn. Traffic noise is a non-issue
Central to all the island’s shore diving sites - none more than a short drive along the coast
Far enough from the buzz of downtown Kralendijk to enjoy peace by the sea
Convenient and adjacent to banking, Internet café, groceries, ice cream shop, spa/fitness, shopping, restaurants.

Our fully furnished, oceanfront studio has everything you need to make your vacation the best ever.

A4 Studio Features
Full view, oceanfront screened porch with breakfast table and comfortable chairs
Sleeps 2 adults – Comfortable Queen Eurotop bed next to the porch (Child or second adult could sleep on couch pull-out bed)
Fully furnished kitchen with all the conveniences of home – stainless steel double sink with Grohe sprayer/faucet, ceramic cook-top, oven, dishwasher, full–sized refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, Wolfgang Puck pots&pans, dishes, glasses, flatware
Free starter supplies (shampoo, soaps, paper towels, toilet paper, dishwashing soaps, trash bags)
Free use of cell phone with starter minutes during your stay
Free Wireless Internet
Large closet with hanging space, shelves and drawers
2 Electronic safes (to handle all your photography gear plus 2 laptops up to 17' long) - programmable with your own, secure combination
Full bath with large, glass block and tile walk-in shower
32' LCD Color TV with Cable (several American channels)
AM/FM Stereo CD player with iPhone dock and more than 40 CDs
Guides for snorkeling, diving and fish ID, games, magazines
Gear drying areas on the porch and in the shower (if you don't leave it in the dive shop lockers)
Dining table & chairs, bar stools, sofa, desk, bed-side tables
Tastefully decorated with local art and original photographs
Fully air conditioned at NO ADDITIONAL COST, plus 4 ceiling fans & floor fan

Please see even more condo photos in the link shown below.

Some resorts provide air conditioning at extra cost. Some air condition only the bedrooms. Our quiet air conditioning system cools the entire condo. But, you might not even need it. It’s amazingly comfortable with only fresh breezes. Because of our orientation and height above the sea, we have consistent Trade Winds for natural cooling. They flow into the condo through the window and full size screen door and out the 9-foot wide sliding glass doors across the screened porch. Ceiling fans on the porch, over the bed & couch and in the bath add to your comfort.

Want to enjoy Bonaire with more friends or family? We can arrange the rental of a similar, nicely appointed adjacent to and near our condo. You’ll enjoy being so close, but have the privacy of your own place.

We love Sand Dollar Condo Resort for all of its advantages;
Longest continuous beach frontage of any Bonaire resort
Eddy’s Sunrise Restaurant/Bar on site, a great place for all of your meals or a casual drink by the pool.
Close to many other restaurants for a taste of all the island’s famous cuisine
Large oceanfront sundeck with charcoal barbecue pits
Newly renovated, on-site, fresh water swimming pool
Lighted tennis courts
On site security
On-site management and maintenance
Maid service available at additional cost
Affiliated with 2 dive shops: Dive Friends Bonaire, a full service dive/snorkel/instruction center, is on-site next to our building. Next door is Bonaire Dive and Adventure, another full service dive/snorkel/instruction center. Both offer unlimited shore diving, boat dives, drive-up air, free Nitrox upgrades, rinse tanks, guest gear storage and more

This unit is truly your home away from home and we know you’ll be comfortable. Before you arrive in Bonaire, we can help you with truck rentals, grocery locations, resources and directions. Once you’re there, our on-island management team will take care of any needs during your stay. And, before you head home, we hope you’ll post your comments so we can make your next stay even better. You’ll be thinking about your next Bonaire visit even before you leave the island!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2007

                          Why the Owner Chose Kralendijk:
                          We chose Sand Dollar because of its central, oceanfront location, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, long and lovely shoreline, phenomenal views and awesome Bari Reef.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          We love being able to walk 100 feet out of our condo and be in the warm, crystal clear, calm water snorkeling, swimming and/or diving to our heart's content. We enjoy relaxing on our second floor screen porch and taking in the tropical views, sunsets, sounds and smells.
