Property description

Feel at home in Bonaire when you stay at our adorable townhouse. Comfortable, very pretty and priced right, we are directly on a peaceful inlet leading into the Caribbean Sea.

This apartment is a fantastic value as you have your own high speed internet connection, use of a cell phone, cable TV, washing machine for clothes, dishwasher, full kitchen, on-site parking, on-site dive shop, swimming pool and kid's pool, safe, water views, air conditioning, four minute walk to a great beach and much more.

For divers this apartment is perfect! Our on-site Boutique Scuba Center, Div' Ocean Bonaire is a an excellent choice and value and comes highly recommended. If you stay here you get 15% off air/nitrox shore dive packages. Div'ocean is all about personal service. They specialize in Guided Dives, Night Dives and Boat Dives. Two other great dive shops, Tropical Divers Toucan Diving at the Plaza Hotel are both within a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive as is Caribe Inn.

For windsurfers we are an easy 10 minute drive from Sorobon Beach (Lac Bay) where you will find the only two windsurf schools and rental shops on the island, Jibe City Bonaire and Bonaire Windsurf Place.

The apartment is also a great choice for kiters going to Atlantis Beach each day. A big advantage for both kite surfers and windsurfers is that you do not need to drive through downtown Kralendijk to reach your surf destination for the day. Easy drive home and back several times per day if you want to come home for lunch.

The apartment is located less than one mile from downtown Kralendijk. We are also only 5 to 10 minutes walking to some of the best restaurants on the island. Joe's Grillhouse is almost directly across the street and Sebastian's is just around the corner walking toward Kralendijk.

A rental car is HIGHLY recommended, however, because Bonaire offers so much to see and do outside of the downtown area.

Most of our guests rent an apartment rather than a hotel in part because they want to be able to prepare their own meals. With that in mind we've done our best to provide everything you need to eat in comfortably: Refrigerator; freezer; microwave, dishwasher; coffee maker; And of course every utensil you'll need and plenty of dishes.

A European washing machine in the apartment is free for you to use for light washing of your things while here. (Towels and clothes dry on a clothes rack in the sun outside on the terrace!)

Comfortable queen bed with mattress topper and air-conditioning in bedroom. Twin bed also with comfortable mattress topper in living room for a third guest. Smaller fold out daybed also available for a fourth guest. Beautiful patterned linens throughout come from designer John Robshaw, New York.

There are reading lights attached to the wall above the bed in the bedroom for you to cuddle up and catch up on your reading while relaxing at home.

The condominium complex Caribbean Court Bonaire has about 50 apartments. All apartments are owned privately. The resort is bordered on the south side by the oceanfront Plaza Hotel, where you may enjoy the beach, pool (small fee), dive shop, restaurant, grounds and other facilities. Plaza also offers activities and events like barbecue night on Thursdays, salsa dancing, rentals of kayaks and stand up paddle boards, snorkel gear, etc. They also have an on-site dive shop which is ideal for guests who want do dive but not drive.

The apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay. Additional cleanings can be arranged upon request. We will be happy to help arrange any extras you are interested in and assist you in any way possible during your stay. (Ask about car or bike rental, windsurfing, diving, etc.)

For two or more families traveling together, we do have some options for larger apartments in the same complex and group discounts if you rent more than one unit at the same time. Please ask for pricing.

Bon Bini na Bonaire!

Car: Recommended

This is one of the most central locations you will find on Bonaire. We are walking distance to town and only 4 minutes walk to the nearest beach. With our onsite dive shop our scuba diving guests do not need to leave our parking lot to get their tanks - and the nearest dive site is literally next door. Windsurfers and Kite surfers will also find that we are located an easy drive from their respective beaches. Lac Bay and Kite Beach are both about 10 minutes away by car and and since we are south of the main town, Kralendijk you there are no worries about getting there quickly when the wind picks up!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: Marji lives part year on Bonaire and part year in Madison Wisconsin, USA. She spent almost 9 years living full time on the island, raising three kids there. She has also lived in New York City and Italy. Marji owns a total of three rental units in Bonaire, all at Caribbean Court. She speaks fluent Italian, pretty good but rusty French and some Papiamento, Dutch and Spanish.

Why the Owner Chose Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands:
Location, Location, Location. Marji bought these (three) properties after having lived in New York, Milan and Rome. She was used to living in apartments, walking to get places and enjoying the company of a neighbor or two. Caribbean Court couldn't be further away from those big cities - but owning a gorgeous apartment in walking distance to shops and restaurants made the transition from big city to small Caribbean Island just a little easier.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The location is quiet! No street noise with the canal on one side and just our small parking lot and swimming pool on the other. The second floor location of the apartment makes it very safe. Mosquito screens, great trade winds on the terrace, - this one bedroom apartment is truly adorable and affordable - the perfect place to come home to after a day out diving, windsurfing or exploring Bonaire. Extras like a washing machine for your clothes, designer linens and some unique artwork are unlikely to be found at other similarly priced rentals. The central location on the island means you have easy walking or driving access to everything Bonaire offers, including beaches, dive sites, windsurfing, kite surfing, restaurants and shops. OK - so we're biased - but we highly recommend it!
