Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Experience for yourself what the many repeat guests to our unit do; the prime 1 bdrm beachfront location with a panoramic ocean view and steps from the Dive Friends operated dock. Our guests say 'Having had plenty of time to check out most of the hotel and condo accommodations on Bonaire, we feel this condo is the best of all!'

Should I not indicate available dates for part of your intended stay, or if you need additional accommodation, we can recommend an adjacent or nearby condo to complete your accommodation needs.

*****NOTE OUR CONDO HAS AIR CONDITIONING IN BOTH THE LIVING ROOM AND BEDROOM*****

This unit enjoys a unique outside-end location, providing a more panoramic view than other one bdrms in the facility. The extra large porch provides for ocean viewing from BOTH your bedroom and living room. Immediately in front of our condo is a small sandy beach and Bari Reef, the easiest shore dive or snorkel on Bonaire, complete with a shower at the top of the four or five steps to the beach. Adjacent to the same beach is the dive dock operated by Dive Friends, all at your doorstep!

Dive Friends Bonaire, a PADI 5 Star IDC center, in 2017 became the Dive Operator of the next door dive facility, all a stones throw from your parking spot or our unit! Included is 24/7 gear storage and tank access.

Also on-site are restaurants, a pool, ice cream shop, free wifi access, tennis courts, and grills.

With 950 square feet, you will have all the amenities of home and a location second to none; steps from the beautiful turquoise blue Caribbean waters and Bari Reef, ranked number one in the Caribbean for variety of fish species.

Maid service is provided every 4th day of your stay for stays of 6 nights or longer.

Last but not least is the windsurfing for all skill levels at beautiful Lac Bay, and the exotic 14,000 acre Washington-Slaagbai National Park in northern Bonaire.

On February 12, 2008, the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) designated the coral reefs of Bonaire as the most pristine in the Caribbean.

Snorkeling only for this trip!

  • 4 of 5

Great unit for diving or snorkeling. A one bedroom unit with a new pull out sofa in the living room was very comfortable. This is the second time I have rented this unit and it has every thing I needed. Because of some vision issues I was only snorkeling this trip and saw fish I had never seen before in Bonaire! Very nice restaurant next door Breeze and Bites.

Beautiful

What a great trip. From the quick response from Greg letting us know we got the condo to Jossie meeting us at the airport. The condo is exactly like you see. Great location on the ground floor. Would rent this unit again.

EXCELLENT BEAUTIFUL LOCATION!

  • 4 of 5

Unit A-1 - 1 bedroom unit on Dive friends side of the condos. BEAUTIFUL VIEW and BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS! This condo was very clean and had everything that we expected to find. The location is so convenient and centrally located to get to anywhere on the island. Unit had great air conditioning that we only used in the bedroom at night. Bathroom was clean and included shampoo and soap. Bed was very firm and pillows could use updated. But were not a problem. We slept well anyways. Inge the property manager was a delight - even after we locked our keys inside. We are snorkelers not divers and were easily able to snorkel in front of the complex. Although I suggest going to Divi resort/Windsock, 1000 steps(Turtles in the grassy area to the left) to snorkel too. We saw Octopus at Sand Dollar and Divi! Night Snorkeling is very easy here and at Divi. (Book Brenda Yorke at H2O Visions for snorkeling- we had a great private night snorkel with her)Take your flashlights and expect a tarpon to be your friend. They won't hurt you they just use your flashlight light to hunt. Easy access to a great breakfast 1 minute walk up to "Between 2 Buns" . They also have lunch sandwiches etc. Good place to pick up some sandwiches for a picnic lunch.(Cooler in the unit) Eddy's Restaurant on site was open for dinners. We ate there twice and had EXCELLENT dinners, servers and staff were attentive and very friendly. Enjoyed the music there on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and only had to walk back to our condo. Capt Don's/Rum Runners is a very close drive, easy parking and had excellent pizzas. I highly recommend if you do a snorkel/kayak to do it with The Mangrove Information Center. You won't be disappointed.

Location! Location! Location!

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed nine days at Sand Dollar A1. The unit was clean and comfortable. The oversized screened patio was great for sitting outside and enjoying the view. The sliding door was a bit of a challenge to open. Dive Friends of Bonaire is literally steps away from the unit. Despite being near the dive shop and a restaurant, we heard very little noise in the unit. It was several years since we stayed at Sand Dollar due to some management changes and lack of maintenance of the resort. We rented directly from the owner. The local property manager was quick to respond to an issue we had with ants....a common problem in the islands. They offered to meet us at the airport to accompany us to the unit. We opted to have them meet us at the unit as we were familiar with Bonaire. We were shown how everything worked. We were impressed with their level of care. We did not go to the pool. It was closed the one time we went that way. Why bother when you have Bari Reef to enjoy! We would definitely rent A1 again!

A1 vacation

  • 5 of 5

Can't review this property without also reviewing Bonaire Adventure Divers. We used B.A.D. all week and found them to be totally professional and enjoyable. Great boat and shore dives. The Sand Dollar is next door to Den Lamen condos, which is where BAD is based. The A1 unit we rented is absolutely the closest Sand Dollar unit to Den Lamen. It is literally a simple twenty second walk from the unit to the boat dock and equipment locker of BAD, yet the unit is quiet and peaceful. There is a large screen porch with beautiful ocean views as well as a great place to hang wet gear. Powerful AC in both the bedroom and living room and plenty of hot water in the shower. Though the unit is certainly not new, it is clean and well equipped. Inge, the property manager was easy to work with and very responsive.

A1 It truly is the BEST situated condo in the complex!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, son and son's girlfriend stayed in A1 from July 23-July 30th. The condo was as described and more!

Since this was our first time staying in a condo, we weren't sure what to expect but the kitchen was outfitted with every imaginable thing that you would need to put together a large meal or snacks. The condo was spacious and well appointed. The wifi worked wonderfully. There was a nice flat screen TV that had a variety of channels.

I brought some books but there is bookshelf filled with books, games, puzzles, magazines in case you feel like staying in after a day in the sun. You could step right out from the screened patio and be at the beach/pier in a few steps. After your snorkel or dive, you could drop your wet gear off on the patio before entering the condo. I loved sitting out on the patio and reading and just watching all the iguanas and donkeys walking through the property. It was such a peaceful place. Greg the owner was a delite to work with from our first contact. We kept changing the number of people but he was always very accommodating. We would definitely rent this unit again the next time we are in Bonaire.
