Why Karin van den Ouden chose Bonaire

Location, Location, Location. Great view, on the ocean for an easy dive night and a short drive to many other favorite dive sites. Close to airport and town.

Plus the comfort and design of the interior as we finished it.

What makes this apartment unique

The ocean view and breeze when the entire ocean side sliding pocket door is opened or sitting on the balcony grilling your own dinner and watching the sunset. Luxurious bedro0oms and baths.

Dream Bonaire in November

  • 5 of 5

Was truly a dream spot. We stayed for 2 weeks. It was amazing spot with beautiful views every day. Karin was attentive to any issues that came up. Slept to wonderful AC at night and enjoyed the tropical air through the whole house during the day. Would definitely stay here again.

Perfect Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

Dream Bonaire delivered as promised. We spent 2 very enjoyable weeks here. The location, the condo, the amenities and of course, the view from the terrace - all perfect. Swimming off the deck and the outdoor dining were absolutely delightful.

The condo is very spacious, the kitchen is well equipped, the beds are comfortable and the many windows let the trade winds flow through, although we did appreciate the A/C in the bedrooms at night.

Evening sunsets and early morning coffee on the terrace were special treats.

Karin (property manager) was a pleasure to meet and very helpful. She kindly did some shopping for us before our arrival which we really appreciated.

We would not hesitate to book this property again.

Great location, good manager, but property needs a little TLC

  • 4 of 5

First, the pro's: if you are there to dive, you can't get a better location. Right next door to the dive shop, you literally walk to the end of the short driveway to get your tanks, then walk back to the patio, climb down the ladder and you are diving! Layout of the property is nice--the balcony is lovely, big living room/dining room area, nice bedrooms. Karin, the property manager, does an excellent job. The place was clean and she greeted us at the house even though our flight was late and we did not arrive until almost 10 pm. The con's: the unit is in need of some TLC--not in terrible shape right now, but enough little stuff is in need of attention to warrant a mention. For example, the hand held shower head in one of the bathrooms (the one we were not using) simply refused to stay in the holder.

If you rent this unit, you will need a car as the grocery stores and restaurants are all several miles away.

Dream Bonaire is truly a dream

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent two weeks at Dream Bonaire in October and were very happy with the condo, location, and especially Karin the local contact. Karin was so helpful from the first email months before our stay to our last day in Bonaire. She helped with information on car rentals, dive shops for our scuba open water certification. She even stopped at the store for us so that we would have coffee and fruit on our first morning. We arrived in the evening after a long travel day. She was waiting for us at Dream Bonaire the night we arrived with a bottle of wine and a big smile. This made us feel so welcome! She also checked in during our stay to make sure everything was going well. She came by to wish us a safe trip home and to say good bye before we left. I feel that we have a friend in Bonaire. The location is great. Easy drive to downtown and grocery stores. Suggestion- try the coconut macaroon cookies at the Warehouse food store. They are wonderful, we even brought some home as gifts! Enjoyed dinners at Roomers across the street and Joe's Grill (went to Joe's 3 times!). Now, about the condo...what a view! We loved the balcony and the lower sun deck. Met the people staying in the lower condo which was fun, enjoyed a beer and sunset many nights together. After completing our open water certification, we dove in front of the condo. We felt it was one of the best dives we had. We enjoyed the ladder to the water for easy access to the water for our daily snorkel! The beds, linen and supplies were nice as were the books, available spices and furniture. The only suggestion would be to provide bath soap. Every VRBO I've stayed at had soap for the guests. I suggested this to Karin and she was very receptive to the idea. We love Bonaire and will stay at Dream Bonaire again!

Dream Bonaire was truly a dream Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

My buddy and I just returned from a week of diving. In part, we chose Dream Bonaire it on the basis of the pictures in the listing. I can honestly say the pictures do not fully convey the property, the ambience or the truly wonderful experience we had. The layout is open, huge, well furnished, the view amazing and it felt like "home" five minutes after we arrived. The kitchen is well equipped with all you need to make a gourmet meal, which we did. The location is perfect in terms of heading out diving in the morning, particularly on the Southside. And, the dip tanks and storage lockers make equipment handling a breeze. I would wholeheartedly recommend to divers, to families pretty much to anyone. Have only good things to say and we were sorry to say goodbye. And I would be remiss in not mentioning Karin who is a wonderful host. She attends to every detail, is infectiously cheery and very knowledgeable about the island., diving and pretty much anything else. Ask her for restaurant recommendations before you look at Trip Advisor. All in all, an unforgettable experience that we will repeat soon. I wouldn't stay anywhere else but here when I come to Bonaire.

Dream Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on Bonaire! The villa was a very comfortable, cozy place to stay. The lady, who took care of our accomodation, did a great job. Thank you, Karin! We felt welcomed and good as in our own home. The view is gorgeous and the access to the ocean is so easy! We could admire the sunsets and panoramic view of the coast as well as Klein Bonaire. Unforgetable vacation!
