About Audrey Zamkow

Stan dives and does a little windsurfing. Audrey snorkels and just retired so she can spend more time on Bonaire.

Audrey Zamkow purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Audrey Zamkow chose Bonaire

We first visited Bonaire almost 25 years ago, staying at the old Sunset Beach Hotel. We loved the place, the nicest people, the diving, everything about it. We gave thought to buying something but there really wasn't much for sale back then, and with a young daughter we decided that it just wouldn't work for us at the time.

Fast forward 20 years. Our friends, Mike and Craig, retired and started spending good parts of the winter in Bonaire, leaving their wives home to work (their wives choice!) Mike was either windsurfing or waiting for the wind and Craig diving every day and sneaking in some windsurfing. They were renting at various places, including Lighthouse Beach. We started coming down with their wives, Shelley and Karen (respectively) to visit in February, first staying at Coco Palm Gardens and then with all of them when they bought their place at Kings Beach Resort.

Always a wonderful time, Craig and I diving every day, the ladies on the beach at Lac Bay while Mike was windsurfing. Cocktail hour on the beach every night followed by a great dinner, the result of either group cooking at home or at one of the many great restaurants like Wil's, Mi Banana or the old Cactus Blue. One year, while Audrey was hanging out with Shelley, Karen, and some of their friends, someone mentioned this really nice place for sale next door so Audrey said we should go see it. I had no interest in buying anything but went along with it because that's how you stay married for 40 years. :-)

LBR #13 was just such a great place that we came away thinking that maybe this was the time to fulfill that 25 year old dream. So, we took the figurative 'giant stride' into the deep water and here we are the new owners of this beautiful home.

What makes this townhome unique

We are sure that once you stay with us you will join the league of Triskadekaphiles*

We want this to be the best value vacation rental on Bonaire. There will always be cheaper rooms in less desirable locations but we strive to make LBR #13 the best value. No 'nickle and dime' add-ons for air conditioning or internet. No having to go to the lobby to share the wi-fi. There is even a private local phone for making dive boat and dinner reservations or placing your BBQ order at Bobbejans. Our new US based phone lets you stay in touch with home for free and includes $10 in free calls to Europe.

While Bonaire is a very safe place, the added security of steel bars and a private document safe can provide an extra measure of comfort in your home away from home.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your place. It was just perfect our needs & by far the most well-equipped unit that we have rented in the 20 years that we have been visiting Bonaire. For the first time ever we did not need to purchase even one item to make our rental liveable or the kitchen functional. The grill is awesome & having drying racks that are actually strong enough to hold something heavier than a bathing suit was a real bonus. The wind was wild over that past few weeks, so the breezes flowing through the unit made it particularly comfortable....no a/c required!

Can't wait to return........

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I spent three weeks in LBR #13. I have to say that it was, by far, the most generously and practically equipped accommodationl that we have ever rented in Bonaire. We really enjoyed our stay. Audrey & Stan have thought of everything & their attention to detail is impeccable.

The bedrooms are spacious, the mattresses are in great condition (very comfortable for us, but, yes, comfort is subjective) & the walk-in closets were a pleasant surprise. It was nice to not have to live out of a suitcase for three weeks.

The kitchen is abundantly stocked with good quality pots, pans, serveware, tableware, cutting boards, sharp knives and just about every gadget/appliance imaginable. As we cooked in most evenings, being able to prepare our meals without being limited by the typical sparsely equipped kitchen really made our stay all the more enjoyable. And, the outdoor gas grill was awesome!

The unit itself is east-west oriented so you can take your pick of sun or shade in the nicely landscaped, private courtyards. There are plenty of screened windows and a lovely screened patio. The cross-ventilation is great. In fact, it was so breezy while we were there that we never needed to turn on the A/C. The fans were more than enough for us. There is ample sturdy indoor and outdoor storage for dive gear, as well as an outdoor rinse tank. Although, in an effort to conserve precious water, we opted to rinse our gear at the dive shop.

We had never stayed in LBR before and it was a nice change from the barking dog bedlam that is prevalent in many of the other neighborhoods of Bonaire. LBR was very quiet, yet not deserted. Everyone we encountered (mostly other owners) was friendly & personable. The complex pool is very clean and well- maintained. The private beach has a nice sandy entrance.

In our minds, LBR#13 has set the standard against which all our future rentals will be measured. We won't hesitate to return.

Wonderful !!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Bonaire at the Lighthouse Beach Resort #13.

The condo has been just what we wanted both years we stayed there.

Very comfortable, quiet neighborhood, 2 comfortable bedrooms with

AC if needed and not far from good snorkeling, restaurants and town.

Our 'home' away from home

  • 5 of 5

March 2017 will be our 12th consecutive year staying at LBR13 (need we say more).The owners cater to your every need and respond quickly to any questions or issues. The condo is very clean, roomy and has many features that make our stay pleasant. Due to its direction, the breeze flows through the condo and makes it very pleasant.The kitchen is well stocked with kitchen utensils, pots, pans and other items. The gas barbeque is a real plus. Off the kitchen is a storage room for all you gear and equipment. There is an American phone for your use to keep in touch with family at home. All the amenities make your stay a great experience and add to the enjoyment of your time there.

We consider LBR13 our home away from home and are very happy there.

A Perfect place, made by divers for divers!

  • 5 of 5

From the initial contact it was clear that the owners are taking the hospitality business very seriously. Email exchange was patient and very detailed; each and every question was answered in length and in detail - nothing was left unanswered or open to doubts. Information package was complete and one will be hard-pressed to find a question that was not dealt with in the information sent.

The house was prepared and equipped by owners-divers and has EVERYTHING one might wish for a diving vacation including all rinsing and storage/drying facilities (outdoors and locked area indoors), beach chairs, umbrella and cooler boxes, beach and swimming pool towels, in brief: everything!

The condo is specious and well ventilated, fully equipped (the American phone line made it even easier than ususal to keep in contact with my wife and kids) and tastefully decorated.

I personally liked the fact that the specific unit is not directly around the pool, as it promises quiet and privacy. Pool and beach are seconds away and area is quiet and decently maintained.

This is my 7th visit to Bonaire and I already lament the fact that the unit is not available during my coming April trip (mind you: book early!).

Thanks Audrey and I am confident we will talk again in the future.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked into LBR 13, we felt as though we were "home". It is a clean, cmfortable unit. I've never rented a unit with such a well equipped kitchen--everything needed for meal preparation. The outside gas grill is a major plus. The house is definitely set up for diving with a fresh water rinse tank for easy cleanup. There is no place else I would rather stay and will return on our next visit to Bonaire.
