Recent Belnem property reviews
"We absolutely loved this rental for the week we were in Bonaire. The location being so close to the airport was super convenient. The condo itself is so open and plenty of room! We spend soooo much time out on the patio as there is a very nice dining table and chairs and the view is unbeatable. In fact, if we were at the condo we were mostly out there. The pool is very nice too and never crowded. The dive shop was friendly and very lenient on allowing you to take multiple tanks at 1 time. I just can't see enough great things about this place. Also the communication with the owner was so easy and smooth, I highly recommend!!!!!!"Guest: Kate Date of Stay: April 2014 Review Submitted: May 21, 2014View listing
"The apartment delivers as advertised. It is spacious with a well equipped kitchen and simple, fine quality bedding and furnishings. Having two large bedrooms with private baths are quite nice for a shared holiday with friends. Those views that look pretty in photos are gorgeous in person. A washer in the extra 1/2 bath in the main area was also pretty great. The noseeum bugs at the time of year I visited put a bit of a damper on outdoor living but that was everywhere on the island. Sharing the large deck downstairs to directly enter the ocean via ladder and rinse off in outdoor shower was no problem. Tip - there was a handy cooler in the apartment and the super nice fridge has an icemaker, all perfect for the journey to the national park. Dream Bonaire is great."Guest: irene Date of Stay: November 2011 Review Submitted: December 12, 2011View listing
"We stayed here our very first time in Bonaire. We really liked it but decided to stay elsewhere our second trip. On our third trip we knew that we had to come back to Cantu Di Laman. It has such a comfortable feel and the "backyard" diving is one of our favorites on the island."Guest: M&M Date of Stay: June 2011 Review Submitted: January 1, 2012View listing
"Very pleased with overall stay! Minor issues with condo--couldn't figure out washer/dryer as all instructions were in Dutch, but we really didn't need it. We also couldn't get a wireless signal, but there was a hard connection we could use. (Besides, don't you want to disconnect while you're in paradise?) Everything else in condo was in great shape and the location couldn't be better! You're essentially halfway between the north and south dives sites and you're right by the turn-off to Lac Bay for wind-surfing. Having the steps right down to the water make early morning/night dives super easy, and since that part of the reef doesn't have any public dive sites, it's an extremely healthy area. There is a dive shop within walking distance of the condo, but we used Wannadive again so we'd have both a north and south location where we could swap tanks. Since the gate to the property is always locked, we left our gear out on the deck all night and never had an issue. We met a wonderful couple in the condo next door (they said our condo was the most updated in the complex) and plan to see them again when we all return next year. In fact, we're disappointed this condo is already booked during our planned vacation, so we'll be trying another VRBO listing after having such good luck with this one. One funny thing . . . we had a small, furry visitor one night, which isn't too surprising on an island like Bonaire. When I mentioned it the property manager, she smiled and said, "That's why I own cats." I love Bonaire--go with the flow, and you'll love it too."Guest: ktb Date of Stay: February 2011 Review Submitted: June 3, 2011View listing
