About the Property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

Welcome to our home away from home – Sand Dollar Unit A-03 - our beautiful ground floor (no steps to climb) oceanfront studio condo located on the island of dive/snorkel freedom – Bonaire. Our condo is one of the largest studios on Bonaire at about 600 square feet. It is truly our home away from home and we have added lots of the little extra's that make a vacation special. The condo comfortably accommodates two adults and is most often rented by couples looking to get away for a while and relax. Please see our guest comments below.

The condo features a refreshing tropical theme throughout with a large complete kitchen including newer appliances and everything you could need to prepare your own meals. With a large newly renovated bathroom including a glass-block walk-in shower and for a comfortable rest a queen size bed with ample pillows with ceiling fan overhead we know you will instantly feel right at home.

For entertainment a color TV with multiple cable channels, DVD player & various DVD's, CD stereo with external device input, various books, wildlife guides and island guides are all for your use. Additionally the condo includes an ultra quiet state of the art Panasonic 24,000 BTU split air-conditioner capable of cooling the entire condo in a matter of minutes. We have also provided an electronic security safe for all your valuables that can accommodate a normal size lap top computer. You will find ample storage and hangers for clothing and dive/snorkel gear including a dedicated hanging/drying area on the patio so no need to leave your gear in the common dive shop area.


LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION

Quite simply, our unit is one of the closest condo units in the Sand Dollar Resort complex to the water with a screened-in patio (no bugs) and year round sunset views. Not all units can say this so please ask to avoid disappointment. From our condo you will be looking directly at the beautiful Caribbean Sea and Klein Bonaire through floor to ceiling sliding glass doors which allow for access to the screened-in patio and wonderful year round views. We have provided comfortable patio chairs, chaise lounge and a table to make a nice eating and resting area on the patio. We always eat our meals, enjoy a drink, or do a little reading on the screened in patio in quiet comfort and relaxation.. The patio door provides direct access to the oceanfront promenade unlike second floor units.

Again, we feel location is important and we love ours. Our condo is the closest ground floor studio unit in the Sand Dollar Resort complex to the beach, dive centers and pier but it still remains quiet, private and secure. Dive Friends and Bonaire Dive and Adventure are ready to help with all your needs including equipment rental/repair, shore diving, boat diving, snorkeling trips, dive and photo instruction, sightseeing/land tours, bike rentals and more.

Fantastic shore diving and snorkeling is located directly in front of the Sand Dollar Resort on Bari Reef – rated the top reef in the Caribbean for variety of fish species. As our guest at Sand Dollar you will have unlimited direct access to Bari Reef for incredible morning, afternoon, twilight and night diving/snorkeling – all just a convenient short walk away. Sand Dollar Resort is centrally located on Bonaire so shopping, the town center and all dive/snorkel sites north or south are within a few minutes walk or drive. You are also only a short drive away from some of the best kite and wind surfing in the world.

On-site management, maintenance and maid service means your vacation will be hassle free. With a new large pool, lounge chairs, lighted tennis courts, bar/restaurant on-site and with several other restaurants, gym/spa, ice cream parlor, bank, grocery store, and shopping a very short walk away the little conveniences and forgotten necessities are right there for you. We are proud to have guests return year after year to stay with us and will do everything we can to make your stay a special one to remember. Need help with a rental vehicle, just ask and we will be happy to provide information and agency referrals as part of a vacation package.

We are not absentee owners but visit Bonaire as often as we can and listen to what past guests have to say about their stay with us. We take pride in our unit and do our best to make friends and guests as comfortable as possible. More then two adults in your group, please inquire about co-renting a second studio or 1 bedroom unit just steps away from ours. Many guests have told us they enjoy the privacy of having their own condo unit while appreciating the convenience of being so close to friends and family. Our condo books up quickly so we are sorry if it is not available for your preferred dates. If this is the case then we can help arrange a rental with a neighboring condo to meet your vacation needs. We are happy to answer any questions you might have, just send us an email. Thanks for considering our condo for your Bonaire vacation plans.

Owner info

About the owner: Scott and Susan received their diver certifications in the cold waters of the inland north west and travels to explore new exotic warm water diving. We lived in Spokane, WA, which is in the Great Inland Northwest about 25 miles west of Coeur D’Alene, Idaho. We have just recently relocated to the Florida Key's which will allow us to be closer to our home away from home in Bonaire.

Why the Owner Chose Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands:
The first time we went to Bonaire, we fell in love with the island. Sand Dollar Condominiums is centrally located on Bonaire so shopping, the town center and all dive/snorkel sites north or south are within a few minutes walk or drive. You are also only a short drive away from some of the best kite and wind surfing in the world. It’s quiet, the people are friendly, for English or Dutch there are no language barriers and there are many good restaurants and shops.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We chose Sand Dollar because our condo is looking directly at the beautiful Caribbean Sea and Klein Bonaire.The patio door provides direct access to the oceanfront promenade. Our condo is the closest ground floor studio unit in the Sand Dollar Condominiums complex to the beach, dive centers and pier but it still remains quiet, private and secure. Fantastic shore diving and snorkeling is located directly in front of the Sand Dollar Resort on Bari Reef – rated the top reef in the Caribbean for variety of fish species. As our guest at Sand Dollar you will have unlimited direct access to Bari Reef for incredible morning, afternoon, twilight and night diving/snorkeling till your heart’s content – all just a convenient short walk away.
