Spacious 3 bedroom / 3 bathroom ground floor condo with huge patio overlooking the Caribbean sea. Extremely quiet and private as this is the ground floor condo with no next door neighbors! Fully stocked kitchen, Keurig coffee maker (bring your favorite K cups!) , 42 inch LED HDTV in living room, all bedrooms equipped with LED HDTV flat screen TVs.

Bonaire is a small island located in the southern Caribbean and it is truly unique in the world. It's as if this tiny island was made just for diving and snorkeling, as, from virtually any place on the leeward coastline, you can enter the beautiful Caribbean Sea and dive! No other island in the Caribbean has so many unrestricted shore dive sites. Steep walls, sloping drop-offs, exciting wrecks and last, but not least, the double reef system, which will take your breath away.

For over 20 years, Bonaire has maintained dedication to protecting its natural beauty and environment. The Bonairean people declared the waters around Bonaire and Klein Bonaire, an underwater marine park.

Bonaire has the reputation of being laid back, very tranquil, and a paradise for divers. People have written many slogans and descriptions about Bonaire, such as 'the best kept secret,' 'unforgettable, unhurried,' and, of course, 'divers' paradise.' The fact is that all these statements are true. There is so much to explore both above and below the water!

Location:

Bonaire is located 30 miles from Curacao; 50 miles north of Venezuela and 86 miles east of Aruba, outside the hurricane belt. The island is 24 miles long by 3-7 miles wide, 112 square miles. Its highest point is Brandaris Hill, 784 feet.

Climate:

Yearly average temperature is 82° F (27.8° C), average water temperature is 80° F (26.7° C), average humidity is 76%, and the island receives lots of sunshine.

My Only Place to Stay on Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVE this condo! The location is amazing and very convenient to Bari Reef. Love having breakfast on the porch each morning and enjoying the view and watching the iguanas and crabs promenade on the sea wall, and enjoying all the many birds. Owner and front desk are very responsive if any issues. Perfect location for easily doing night snorkels via the steps into the water near the patio. Tons of hooks for drying gear on the patio. Wished we could stay longer.

Great place to stay!!

  • 5 of 5

The location of this condo can't be beat. We love being right on Bari Reef. Diving is excellent right in front of the condo. The condo itself has been recently renovated and it was done beautifully. This is the nicest condo on Bonaire that we've rented. We especially loved having air conditioning in the bedrooms and in the living room area (a lot of Bonaire doesn't have air conditioning in the main living area). We would recommend this condo and definitely would return in the future. The owner was very responsive to any questions we had for him. Thanks Stuart!!

another fantastic visit

  • 5 of 5

in spite of rain nearly every day in february, it was spectacular diving and snorkeling. a southern sting ray hung out in the sand on bari reef for a couple of days. several people spotted an eagle ray. dolphins came by a couple of times. the seahorse was at Something Special downtown. fewer octopus sitings than last year, but still some there. enjoyed the condo again. it's a special place. got our 10 year bonaire ambassador medals this trip.

We consider this oceanfront condo our home away from home. Spacious, roomy and great amenities for divers and non divers. Awesome sunset views. A great place to relax, enjoy the beautiful ocean waters and grab some sun by the seawall. We look forward to returning next year.

Stunning Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay at Sand Dollar Unit F-21. Condo was very clean, well appointed, updated and very comfortable. The views from the condo were stunning. The property was very quiet and the staff was amazing. From the front desk office staff, housekeeping to the security guards

everyone was so friendly and you could tell the staff truly cares for the guest and the property. The condo owner, Stuart was very informative and answered all our questions in a very timely manner. Do not hesitate to book and stay at Sand Dollar Unit F21. Enjoy we sure had an amazing vacation and the diving off the house reef was as good as any of the sites we visited.

BARI REEF
Car: recommended

Bonaire is one of the top 5 dive/snorkel locations in the world. Protected marine reserve for 30 years, located on 'BARI' reef, cited by 'REEF' as the most prolific fish-spotting location in the Caribbean! Fantastic bird watching opportunities and sightseeing. Bonaire is also known as the 'Wind Surfing Capital' of the world!

Bonaire's Lac Bay offers near-perfect conditions for all levels of surfers, from beginners to experienced sailors. The shallow waters of the bay also boast favorable on-shore winds making Lac Bay the perfect place to learn or hone your skills.

Lac Bay offers something for everyone: Couples can enjoy each others company, even if one likes to sail and one likes to enjoy the beach. Exciting family vacations are rare treats with the whole family able to enjoy their windsurfing days together. Children can begin lessons as early as four years of age!

Bonaire Windsurf Place offers a snack bar featuring sandwiches, snacks, and beverages right on the premises, so windsurfers don't need to go far to recoup their energy before jumping back on a board.
