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.

Perfect location. Stunning view

  • 5 of 5

4th time staying here. Karen could not have been a better host. We love this location since it's right next to buddy dive belmar. So easy to get tanks and be at south end sites in minutes. Dive off of the unit is really nice too. We have breakfast and lunch in the unit and eat out 4 times and dinner at unit few times for a quiet evening, just perfect sitting on deck and watching sunset. We will be back!!!

Place is so nice we've stayed twice.

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious 2 bedroom 2.5 bath. (The living area is huge.) Excellent location, just after this quieter road breaks off from the main road. It is next to a dive shop so sometimes one can hear their activities. But it never bothered us. The veranda overlooking the back deck was great. We ate all of our lunches out there. As others will say, the kitchen isn't made for making big meals, but we eat dinner out every night anyway. And the manager, Karen, could not have been nicer nor more helpful. We'd be happy to rent their again.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, family of 5 with 3 adult children. Karin was a wonderful property manager, she bought us groceries to get started since we were coming in late on Christmas Eve. The house is beautiful with a view to die for! We had an issue with the airbed that was resolved right away, and the replacement was very comfortable. Close to pretty much everything we were doing. What a great vacation!

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Dan, Thanks for your review. Sorry to hear that we must do some TLC in Dream Bonaire. When you had told me I would start to fix this right away. Still we hope you had a good time and we maybe can see you back in Dream Bonaire! All the best, Karin.
