Beatifull oceanfront condo located at the Playa Lechi with spectacular view. French doors lead to the covered terrace with 4 Caribbean Chairs, offering a gorgeous view of the Caribbean Sea and the nature island 'Klein Bonaire' The condo is located on the ground floor on the left side. The complex is surrounded by a tropical fenced-in garden and with a nice fresh water pool and a sun terrace with loungers. In the back is the car entrance with private parking place. For divers there are also rinse tanks & storage availlable at the back entrance. From the front gate you cross the promenade and step into the Caribbean Sea.
The condo is brand new and not only decorated elegantly, local pictures and drift wood art will give you this special 'Bonaire feeling' Lots of very good restaurants are in walking distance from the condo and also very close is the water tax to 'Klein Bonaire' with a great sandy beach. The 'Spice Beach Club' 5 minutes walking, offering a white sandy beach with shade from the coconut trees with lounge beds, a nice bar, restaurant, and nice snorkeling possibilities with a nice pool for kids.
Hello, I'm Mariette, and live with my husband on Bonaire.The apartment became available since March 2013. Due to its central location in Kralendijk an ideal property to start your trips from to everything Bonaire offers you, on foot, by bike or just by car. Mail me if you have any questions, and I wil help you.
This rental is in a great location, right on the Boulevard with views of the water across the street. Great snorkelling right out front, which we enjoyed several times, and the patio (or the sea wall across the street) are excellent spots to watch the sunset. It is very spacious, modern and well equipped, with excellent appliances and in-suite laundry. The decor is modern, although a little on the spare side. The complex has a nice pool, and is very close to the Yellow Submarine Dive shop. Mariette (who manages the rental) is very helpful and responsive. Cons: We missed having an outdoor grill and there is no outdoor dining table. The apartment had a damp smell when we were there.
This was our first trip to Bonaire. Deciding on accommodations is always a difficult task when planning a vacation.
The Elegancia was a great choice. Right from our first inquiry with Mariette and through our entire vacation she was prompt, informative and caring.
We were greeted upon arrival, given walk through of the condo and the complex and some information about the immediate area. To our surprise a cell phone was supplied for our use during our stay. A small balance is provided and we were asked to "top up" as needed. A great idea!!
The condo is equipped with most everything we needed to be comfortable for the two weeks. Some upgrades required in respect to the cutting boards, knives and food storage containers for left-overs. However the dishes, utensils, towels (both kitchen & washroom) and all other supplies were in good working order and plentiful. The washing machine and drying rack are great to have as well.
The secure storage area for our dive/snorkel equipment was handy and very much appreciated. We used Dive Friends for our diving. Elegancia has an agreement with Dive Friends offering a discount of 20%. Their shops and staff were well stocked, professional and conveniently located around the island.
The location of Elegania was perfect for us. Close to downtown, restaurants, dive shop, bars and the walk along the ocean front was always enjoyable.
Overall we found the Elegancia and Bonaire to be quiet and relaxing. I'm sure we will return to Bonaire and hope to stay at the Elegancia again.
This was our first trip to Bonaire, Mariette had been very helpful in arranging our rental. She answered all our questions and met us there when we arrived. The place was as advertised, and we really enjoyed our stay. We received a 20% discount at the yellow submarine dive shop and a 10% discount on base car rental AB Car Rental. Both organizations treated us well.
The only negative I have for Bonaire besides being REALLY hot - it doesn't cool down at night - and there are mosquitoes - is that it is expensive to eat out. We are Canadian and with the exchange to US funds it was costly. Obviously this has nothing to do with the rental, but if you are travelling to Bonaire, keep that in mind and perhaps plan to eat in or go to some of the less expensive places if you can find them. We found that a lot of the not as nice places where almost as expensive as the nice places (e.g. it rains fishes - which was the best meal we had). We had some cheaper good meals at the Pizza place just north of the condo on the road where you go into the parking lot and Between 2 Buns just after the round about when going north from the condo - on the left side of the road in a little strip mall. It has really good gourmet sandwiches for reasonable prices. I don't think they are open for dinner though. Also if you go, you have to try the gelato on the main road in the "center" of town, you can't miss it. OMG it was wonderful!
We also found that the grocery stores (Van Den Tweel) stock an excellent selection of cheeses, cured meats, tampanades, olives, pickles etc, so we bought a selection of these and some crackers that we had for light dinners. Produce is also very expensive but we found the "local market" had a variety of local produce that was really cheap compared to the supermarket. We had a hard time finding it because we were looking for a "market" it is located in a open covered "building" by the water just past where the cruise ships come in. They are supposed to be their every day in the morning.
You also need to go to the east cost and spend some time swimming and relaxing at one of the little places on the bay - I think one was called Jibe City. You pay $5 for a lounge chair, but if you have kids this is great as the beach is really shallow and sandy so nice for kids to fool around in while you relax in the sun or shade. It was a nice break from diving.
All in all we had a good time and will be back sometime soon.
We stayed at the condo for a little over a week and loved it! It was perfect for what we were looking for. It was a 2 minute walk to our dive shop and about a 15 minute walk to Kralendijk. The manager was amazing! She was always available if we needed any help and suggested some great places to hang out and eat.
The condo was just as beautiful as pictured here. It was private and very quiet being on the end of the building and the view was spectacular. We never really had a problem with people parking in front of our view.
I would highly recommend this property for anyone looking for a great place to stay in Bonaire.
We stayed here for a week with another couple for the sole purpose of diving. When we arrived, we followed the directions Mariette gave us and met her right at the door. The condo is on the bottom floor and faces the water. The furnishings were very nice and modern and the beds were super comfortable.
the nice thing is, after your day of diving, the community has 2 wash tubs for all your gear and locked area to keep your gear. A suggestion would be to make sure your bring your own hangers (the big ones for your BCD's) and perhaps a wire bike lock to lock your gear together. We did not have this and we did NOT have any issues! Just a suggestion!
We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!
We stayed in this condo for one week. We had a party of 4 adults, and found the condo and surrounding property exceeded our expectations. The view overlooking the ocean is gorgeous, the condo is spacious, fully equipped, clean and modern. The grounds (pool, etc.) are very pretty. Restaurants and shopping are just a 30-45 minute walk away - a beautiful walk on a brick walkway alongside of the water, to restaurants and shopping.
Negatives: Because this is on the 1st floor, there were sometimes parked vehicles obstructing our view, but not the entire view, and the price reflected this, so it was not an issue for us. Also, there isn't a clothes dryer, but we used the rack and fan provided, and found this also was not a problem at all. So, no real negatives.
We had a wonderful vacation, and plan to rent this condo again!
The condo is located just enough out of the town to be a peaceful location. The dive shop 'yellow submarine' from the dive operations is 100 feet from the home, and a great location for many dives to come. A little bit further walking you will find the luxury beachclub ' Spice Beach Club ' for a unforgetable day at the beach with a pool and a nice restaurant. From the condo you can walk at the sea promenade to restaurants and downtown Kralendijk.
