  • Sand Dollar A4: great location, well maintained

    "Note that Sand Dollar is a collection of owned apartments, every one is different. I staid in A4, which is on the second floor and thus has a balcony, overviewing the ocean. Parrots visit the tree just outside to eat fruits. The balcony is screened, thus you can sit there in the evening without worrying about insects. Some others are not screened. The ones on the ground floor have easier access but less view. The A building is right next to the dive shops. They only run the compressors during the day and it didn't bother me. A4 is in the first building, close to reception, almost nobody walks by there. Thus I let the door open (it has a screen door) and enjoyed the breeze (it's always windy in Bonaire). I like that better than using the aircon (which worked very well anyway). I actually was interested in A2, which has a separate bedroom, but the owner was not very responsive. A4 is a studio with lots of space, including full size kitchen and large bathroom. Although the building looks like it's from the seventies, it has been well maintained. A few tiny things could be improved though. You have between 2 buns very close buy, great place for breakfast (and any other cake or sandwich). The peruvian restaurant is also next door, on the sea side, and was good. Didn't try Eddy's, another restaurant on site. Sonia's is a modern Italian restaurant across the street. There is a well stocked supermarket 10 min. walking north. Thus you can do without a vehicle (although you need one to dive/snorkel at other places and to drive through slagbaai park). Note that the website that seems to be the official website doesn't offer all apartments, even though they will gladly suggest it's "not available for the specified date". Check the vrbo site for alternatives, contact the owner directly for best information. The owners of A4 were very informative and took lots of time to answer any question I had."

  • Two weeks in diver paradise

    "The villa is as shown in the amazing photos. Leeward (calm) ocean is in the backyard! Great views upon entering front door from living room, from one bedroom, and of course from big back porch, deck and dock. Easy to step in and go diving. Reef is just short swim out. Great visibility. Big tarpon will fishfrom your dive lights at night. Beautiful backyard sunsets. This villa and one next door are walled/gated together so you can park your vehicle inside. There is a good visual barrier between the two villas. We used the laundry - small Euro washing machine (read directions) and clothes line. The Rinse tub at end of driveway near house was very convenient after our many great shore dives around the island with our rental pickup truck. There are plenty of places to let equipment dry. Outdoor shower was wonderful. AC in each bedroom appreciated but fortunately the breeze was steady this time of year. Several fans - one bedroom fan needs to be adjusted - too noisy/wobbly to use - used AC instead. A few mosquitos to swat in the house each day...screens on windows and porch doors...electric tennis racket bug swatters...we keep the nets on the beds to be safe. Watch hummingbirds and bufferflys through front windows. Nice kitchen - gas stove, full size refrigerator, toaster oven, micro and dishwasher. Plenty of pots and pans and utensils. We walked to town for dinner one night - not far and plenty of options are available there. Plan to wind down to island time, adjust to less AC, more dust and a few bugs and you will be ready to appreciate a great adventure."

  • Beautiful condo!! Would go back in a heartbeat!

    "We were at the condo for a week in February. Responses from the owner and his assistant were prompt and the entire process was easy and smooth. No extra/hidden fees, taxes, etc. The place is nicely decorated and well furnished. The kitchen is great - we cooked a lot of meals here and we were not lacking anything. (There is even a slowcooker! seriously, this kitchen had everything) There is a supermarket a few minutes away by car. You cannot beat the location: right by the ocean and right in the middle of Kralendijk, near many of the restaurants. Be aware that the cruise ships dock at the pier right in front of the condo - so the street out front was busy with tourists, which made for some good people watching from the patio. Speaking of which, the patio was great. Comfortable chairs to sit in and relax and take a nap. Just need to mind the bugs - but we bought bug spray - I think we left a couple cans in the condo when we left. The two bedrooms were comfortable and each of them has A/C, which was a bonus since my husband cannot sleep without it. We stayed in the master bedroom - it was nice and the ensuite bathroom is great. (loved the shower!!) The second bedroom has two twins, which can be pushed together. It also have an ensuite bathroom but the toilet is separate - it's across the hall. The couple staying in that room did not seem to mind though. They have wifi! A must for us. And the tv has netflix :) The condo complex also has a small pool and has a secure storage space where you can hang your dive gear. I cannot say enough good things about this place!!! We all loved it there and felt so at home. A great find, and I would recommend this to everyone."

  • A vacation home with all the amenities

    "I stayed for one week at this gorgeous property. It was situated with an unmatched and unrivalled view of Kline Bonaire that literally took my breath away. The owner took time and passion to ensure that the property was flawlessly prepared for renters. It had every necessity I could have needed, and more. When I arrived, there was a complimentary bottle of Malbec provided, information about the island, and a relaxing open condo with two bedrooms, A/C, giant glass sliding doors that opened completely to a breathtaking view of the ocean, a fully furnished kitchen, and relaxing living room complete with flat screen TV, wifi, and upgraded cable programming (not that you will use the TV when you can sit out on the enormous covered back patio directly looking over the ocean and Kline Bonaire). The apartment is perfectly situated within walking distance to downtown, numerous dive shops, and even a dock that you could walk out and scuba dive, snorkel, or swim from. I spent every night of my trip going for an evening swim in the delightful pool located on the property, which was mineral water and felt phenomenally clean and wonderful to swim a few laps. Towards the end of my trip I realised that I was running low on clothes and this condo came with a nice little washing machine and dry racks to let my clothes dry in the salty, fresh air. I could not imagine a more perfect property for a vacation to paradise. The colours of the water, the location, and the divine coral reefs that surround the island make this a perfect paradise. Make sure when you go, you buy your nature pass from any of the local dive shops, which allows you to dive, snorkel, and visit the gorgeous Washington Slagbaai park for a full year. Diving in Bonaire is unparalleled. From seeing frog fish, barracuda, angel fish, puffer fish, and even having my fingers cleaned by a shrimp. The reefs are perfect and with a drop off that runs to 120 feet, you cannot ask for a more perfect location than right outside of your quaint little condo at Playa Lechi #5. This was quite literally the most flawless and perfect vacation I have taken. Even the rental agency was most amenable with anything I could think to ask for. I highly recommend this property to anyone that is looking to spend a week in paradise. Don't forget to go to Lac Bay and try your hand at windsurfing and enjoy a fabulous cocktail!"
