  • 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."

  • ideal location + awesome owner attention = a great trip!

    "This year we brought mom with us to Bonaire, so we had to find a 2bdrm. Glad we went with this unit. First of all, can't say enough great things about the owner... very attentive and accommodating to our needs. When we arrived, there was a couple of things that were wrong, but, within 20 minutes of me emailing her, we had everything attended to! Thank you- you're awesome! The location of this unit is great - it's right in the middle of everything this condo resort has to offer! We especially liked the back screened porch - it has to be one of the largest porches on the ground. Great times were had. If we bring mom again, we'll be back!"

  • 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!"

  • Wonderful place!

    "This was our first visit to Sand Dollar, but our 3rd visit to Bonaire. I have to say that we absolutely loved this condo! First floor, close to Dive Friends Bonaire (we'd rinse and store), quickly walk to unit, and have lunch, cocktails, dinner, and relax. The ocean breeze was amazing, open up the patio door & the primary door windows and there was an amazing breeze to keep you cool. We only used AC in the bedroom for sleeping. The unit was perfect for our needs. It was tastefully updated, with comfortable furniture in the living room, a new dining room table, kitchen had everything you could need, bathroom was updated, and bedroom was extremely comfortable and kept very cool for sleeping (just as we like it). Easy access to Bari Reef, and we dove it several times during our stay, while also venturing out to the many other dive sights around the island. We LOVED being able to walk to several restaurants (Between 2 Buns - amazing breakfast & lunch was right across the parking area, and Sonia Home was across the street for great pizza or Italian.) This was definitely a lovely oceanfront unit which we thoroughly enjoyed for our 7 days. There was a safe in the closet where we locked up our electronics, dive hooks on the balcony where we hung our wetsuits to dry each night (our regular gear was hung in the Dive Friends lockers just a few yards away), and we could walk out the patio door to enjoy the sunset close up EVERY night, or we just enjoyed from the tasteful patio furniture. Both husband & I had to check in to work each day, and we were able to do that with the Sand Dollar internet. It wasn't always reliable, but it enabled us to keep in touch with work. My "office" was at the patio table with the amazing views & breeze, while husband's "office" was on the comfortable couch in front of the World Cup games on TV. We'd definitely rent this unit again - it was GREAT!"
