"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!"
