Kralendijk condo description

INTERNET access is now FREE!

!!NEW!! A Dive/Drive package can now be added to a reservation of our condo. The price is simply the weekly condo rental price plus $315/wk for a pickup truck from TOTAL Rent-a-Car + $160/wk unlimited shore diving with Dive Friends (add $160 for a second diver). That sums to a 2 person cost of $1735/wk high season and $1595 low season or about $868 or $798/person for a week (Bonaire taxes and extra vehicle insurance not included). Please check with the owner for an exact rental quote; that provided by VRBO may not be accurate.

One-bedroom, one-bath, fully air conditioned (3 AC units) oceanfront condo at the beautiful Sand Dollar Resort. This unit can accommodate 2 adults and 1 child age 12 and under. Living room, dining room, separate bedroom with cable TV in LR and BR, breakfast bar, fully-equipped kitchen, and screened in porch (lanai). Unit A15 is on the ground floor at the end of the building closest to the dive shops, yet far enough away to miss the hustle and bustle of the dive shop, pier and a restaurant right next door. You truly get the best of both worlds: being very close to the dive shop and pier, yet still having the quietness and privacy you want. A very large unit of 850 square feet with ocean view. As you can see from the comments, every attempt has been and will be made to accommodate you and make your vacation special. The owners, Peggy and Larry, continue to upgrade the unit's appearance and ease-of-use,

The living/dining/kitchen and bathroom areas have recently been re-painted. Both are light and airy. New food storage shelving has added to the kitchen. The water heater has been replaced to assure that you don't EVER run out of hot water. The dishwasher is brand new. The bathroom vanity and mirrored cabinet are new as is the toilet. There are new hooks in the shower enclosure for hanging wet items. The interior decor has been upgraded with the addition of framed prints on the walls of the living area and a chest of drawers has also been added. New shelving has been placed in the living area, as has a small desk and lamp for computer use and battery charging. In the living area, spaciousness has been augmented by addition of a new coffee table, accompanying the new couch. In the dining area, a new dining table and chairs were just included. The bar stools are also brand new.

Superb diving and snorkeling just footsteps from your condominium. In mid-October, 2012, Dive Friends of Bonaire became an on-site dive operation exclusively serving Sand Dollar owners and guests. Diving is available directly from Sand Dollar property, a scant 70 yds from the oceanside door. Tanks can be picked up from the same location for use at other dive sites. If divers or snorkelers prefer to work with Bonaire Dive & Adventure, it is only a few yards further and its dock is very inviting. Each can handle all of your needs for equipment rental, instruction, boat dive, shore dive and 24 hr secure gear storage. Bonaire birding is excellent and Jerry Ligon, the premier local naturalist, can be hired through Bonaire Dive and Adventure to guide you around the island or take you on a fish ID dive. Restaurants, pool, convenient store, ice cream shop, wireless internet access and cell phone rentals, tennis courts and grills are all on site. There is also a new spa on site and a new gym across the street. Sand Dollar also has numerous new chaise-type beach chairs placed along the waterfront for guest use.

Sand Dollar is located approximately 1.5 miles from the town center, about a 20 minute walk.

This is a wonderful resort and unit with privacy, yet has the convenience of being close to everything and has a real feeling and comfort as a home-away-from-home.

Sand Dollar's house reef, Bari Reef, is ranked number one in the Caribbean's top ten sites for variety of fish species. The island of Bonaire was recently designated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as having the most pristine coral reefs in the Caribbean.

The island of Bonaire is considered one of the world’s top dive destinations and is routinely voted the 'Top overall Caribbean/Atlantic destination according to quality of its diving,' and voted #1 in several other categories including, 'Health of Marine Environment,' 'Macro Life' and 'Shore Diving' (Votes conducted by Scuba Diving Magazine. In addition, Bonaire is also regularly ranked very high (first or second) in several other categories including, 'Best Overall Destination,' 'Best Value for Diving Dollar,' 'Best Beginner Diving,' 'Best Snorkeling,' 'Best Visibility,' 'Best Marine Life' and 'Best Underwater Photography.'

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: Peggy and Larry are warm water divers who live on Long Island, NY, about 60 mi outside NYC. The picture is from the underwater version of 'Little Shop of Horrors' -- 'Feed Me!'

                      Why the Owner Chose Kralendijk:
                      We had dived in Bonaire several times, as well as in Roatan, Turks and Caicos, Bahamas, Dominica, Belize and the Florida Keys. The time seemed right to focus more on one locale. We do expect to continue going to different locations, but not as frequently.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                      We love the easy access to the water and dive shop just steps away. Plus, we are only a 2-3 min walk from an ice cream parlor, two restaurants, small grocery store, deli and liquor store!
