Kralendijk cottage description

Modern, recently built and fully equipped private detached cottage, centrally located - close to the ocean, airport, diving and restaurants.

This modern one bedroom home really has it all, with an open plan kitchen/living room that flows to the covered porch through an expansive triple, sliding glass door. The cottage was built to take advantage of the trade winds that will keep the place cool throughout the day. 2 split air conditioning units in the living room and bedroom + 2 ceiling fans are also standard.

Some of the other amenities include: Cable TV, DVD player with an extensive DVD library, free/dedicated/secure wireless internet access - (just bring your laptop),110v and 220v electrical outlets, and a very large private outdoor fully enclosed shower that leads directly to the bedroom - shower under the stars in complete and total privacy, store your gear or just kick back under the sun....

THINGS WE LOOKED FOR:

Parking: Our deeded spot is directly in front of the cottage - no walking with gear to a lot somewhere outside of a hotel/condo on the strip, down a flight a stairs or into an elevator.... Just steps to the car and our private driveway.

Don't forget mosquito screens when booking. It can turn a great vacation into pure misery! Many places have nothing or only partial coverage to keep them out. ALL of our windows and doors are equipped with screens as well as a full door mosquito screen to cover the massive 3 sectional front slider.

Our detached private cottage is situated in a gated secure lagoon resort on a private peninsula that leads directly to the Caribbean Sea. Palm trees and tropical foliage surround the cottage providing privacy for those lazy evenings on the porch or in the outdoor shower. The surrounding lagoon also has 7 private docks that can be used for mooring a boat while on vacation with absolutely no dock fees. Rent a boat for a day or week and pull up to your own private dock within the property.

In the center of it all is a beautiful fresh water pool with waterfall and multi level lounge area that can be found empty many times during the day due to the small size of this private and unique gated resort....

THINGS TO REMEMBER TO ASK WHEN BOOKING:

-- Does the home have FULL mosquito screens throughout? Many places unfortunately do not and offer only partial coverage.

We have full mosquito screens on EVERY door and window....

-- What other fees are added to the cost that are NOT reflected in the original quote Ex - End Cleaning Fees, tourist tax fees per person, per day, electric/water use fees not reflected in the contract or rate, change-over date fees for simply coming in a little early or wanting to leave later due to an afternoon/midnight flight.

Electrical use is EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE on this small island. A very low rate without an electrical use allowance can turn into a financial disaster upon check-out....

We have all fees included in the price of the cottage. There are no hidden fees - What you see is what you get. Be sure to check the initial rate listed on the site and then the fine print fees which can turn that rate into something a lot more than what you bargained for. We also offer FREE early check-in and late check-out without the fee monster. (As long as no other guest is arriving or leaving the same day - feel free to stay longer at no extra charge)

-- Internet/cable: Is it high speed, included in the quote, wireless?

We have free high speed internet and cable included. You will not be stuck sitting in the lobby of a hotel or looking for a wifi hot spot somewhere on the island...

-- Does the place have private indoor and outdoor shower areas and is the outside shower FULLY enclosed or partially open to see from outside?

We have a beautiful, fully enclosed large private outside shower area with lockable mahogany doors for complete and total privacy... lock your gear away right next to the house, hang those wetsuits, take a shower - relax...

-- Parking: where is the parking in relation to the house?
Our parking is right next to the cottage for easy gear loading and unloading...

-- Security: Is the place a gated community or open to the public?

We are in a fully enclosed PRIVATE GATED COMMUNITY that has no public access. Most, if not all of the beach hotel/condos are public access and are along the main road. We also have an oversized safe that will accommodate large laptops and many oversized cameras (along with other valuables)...

--Pool: If you enjoy lounging by the pool after a long day, make sure 1 -That the place has one
-Is it a pool or is it more like an oversized hot-tub. Many locations have very little area devoted to pool space. Our large pool area is centrally located within the property, surrounded by palms and never crowded. Reserving pool chairs/space will never be a concern.

Location: Where will you be staying in relation to dive shops, restaurants, dive locations

We are Centrally located and close enough to walk to town as well as some great restaurants along the way. Being centrally located will also limit the gas burn when hitting the multiple shore entry dive locations - (gas on the island is very expensive when compared to the average cost per gallon in the US).

                      Bonaire is a small friendly island located in the southern Dutch Caribbean. Together with Aruba and Curaçao it forms a group referred to as the 'ABC' islands. Bonaire is known for its pioneering role in the preservation of the marine environment which makes it one of the top scuba diving/snorkeling destinations in the world. 95% of the dive sites are accessible from shore with beautiful reefs and several wrecks worth visiting. Other water activities include: windsurfing, sailing/boating, fishing and kayaking in the mangroves. Just some of the on-island activities include: Shopping/visiting the quaint capitol of Kralendijk, Off-roading, hiking, mountain biking Washington/Slagbaai National Park, bird watching (Bonaire is known for their large flamingo population), horseback riding, visiting the donkey sanctuary and cave exploring. Finishing the day at one of the many world class restaurants while watching the sun set is what truly makes Bonaire the best kept secret of the Caribbean.
