About Anouk Ploeger

We are a Dutch family who fell in love with Bonaire. After spending most of our holidays here, we decided to buy our own apartment on what we consider to be the best spot of the island.

Anouk Ploeger purchased this condo in 2013

Why Anouk Ploeger chose Kralendijk

Port Bonaire offers a unique mix of all what we love. It has a central location (close to Kralendijk, Sorobon and the airport), its view is just magnificent and "Ti Amo"- sandy beach is right next to the resort.

What makes this condo unique

The property itself is very spacious. We refurnished the apartment and placed new bathrooms and a new kitchen, because the original was fairly outdated. Being on the groundfloor with a large terrace increases your living space considerably, especially in this lovely climate, where you spend most of your time outside. Sitting on the porch enjoying the amazing views, the colourful sunsets, the turtles swimming by... this is what we love and we hope to share this fantastic experience with you.

Perfect House for Divers and relaxation!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this house, and is the only place we'll ever stay when visiting beautiful Bonaire.

The property is located directly across the street from the Airport. It's faster to walk there than it is to drive, so don't bother catching a cab or waiting for the provided pickup driver to get his vehicle and take you over. It's so convenient being that close, especially if you have the early morning flight out. And don't worry about airport noise - the runway approach and take off doesn't pass over the house, and the airport isn't exactly busy, so it's not at all bothersome.

The house is perfectly set up for 2 couples, or a couple and two singles willing to share a room. The master has an attached bathroom, and the second room has a private shower and an attached toilet that is shared with the hallway, though unless you have a bunch of guests there would never be a need to use it from the hallway. The rooms are spacious enough, have plenty of storage for clothes, and both have ceiling fans and in room AC units.

The apartment ground floor entry and has a big sliding glass door onto a patio with the dining room table and then a direct access to the pool and great water views. Every morning and evening we opened all the windows (they have screens) and let the breeze blow through the apartment while we sat outside to eat our meals.

The kitchen is well stocked with spices and pots and pans and all the glassware and cutlery you could need. The stove and oven/microwave work great, and the ice machine in the freezer is a great benefit, too.

The complex is gated, so you don't have to worry about strangers wandering through or someone stealing your stuff off the patio. Immediately outside the gate is a Dive Friends Bonaire shop (the Port Bonaire location) where you can rent tanks and equipment, embark on boat dive trips, or take training courses. They offer a great discount for people who stay at this house as well, so it's a cost savings.

The truck that rents with the house is definitely worth it for diving - great for 4 people, has a lock keypad so you can secure your stuff, etc. And the rental company that manages the property (along with the owner) are SUPER responsive so if you have any troubles at all, they'll be quick to fix them to make sure your stay is perfect.

Without a doubt, this is a perfect place to stay on Bonaire, close to all the dive sites, close to the city, and beautiful if you just want to sit out!

Amazing stay in very relaxed and complete little house at sea with swimming pool!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this house was amazing. We were there because of our honey moon. The house has 2 very spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, the double bed was very big and nice to sleep in ! Also for long people it is perfect! There is a fully equiped kitchen and a large living room with nice furniture , also outside you have nice furniture to sit in. The area around the house is very clean and quiet. Every day someone is attending the area so the place always looks nice and clean. I loved the spot near the sea where you can swim and sit in relaxing chairs to look over the sea. I even saw some dolphins right in front of the house! Tropical fishes you can see every day swimming around. The car of the house is very nice. We made some nice tours. Its vicinity of the airport is not at all a problem but just practical, you just walk to the house!! And for divers: so nice to have your " own " diving shop just around the corner. And for beach-lovers: the beach is also around the corner if you pass the property door. Shortly: just book it, you will not regret it! Greetings, Joris en Saskia, Holland.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Port Bonaire A601 was a pleasure! The location was central to all activities on the island. We used the truck and it was such a treat to not have to wait for a rental after landing on the island. Proximity to the airport was actually a bonus! The condo is set up beautifully and so user friendly. We dove with Dive Friends and had another fantastic experience. Can't wait to get back next year.

Amazing apartment, Great location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented this property for 1 week in Jan 2017. The apartment is newly renovated and the kitchen and bathrooms are fabulous. There are a mixture of 110 and 220 outlets and plenty of each which is very useful. We choose to rent the truck as well and the best part was it has a lockable topper on the back, which meant whether diving or shopping we could safely lock up valuable without fear of theft as the items were out of sight. I never saw another truck with a topper our whole stay.

Port Bonaire is a apartment complex south of the main city of Kralendijk and across from the airport. It is a short 5 min drive to shopping area and quick access to all the southern beaches. As mentioned in previous posts the dive shop next door is convenient and very helpful. The property is very quiet and secure, you can hear the planes as they land and take off from the airport but with so few flights a day it wasn't an issue.

The owners of this unit really put a lot of thoughtfulness into the property, we felt very comfortable and safe staying here and would love to return some day.

Beautiful condo, pleasant stay.

  • 5 of 5

We rented this condo for 2 weeks and had a great time. The place is very spacious, clean and nicely decorated. Nice bathrooms, kitchen well equipped, comfortable beds. Huge fridge with ice maker, which was very nice. We liked the condo is on the ground floor with access to patio and pool area. Nice swimming pool and surrounding area is spotless, with a beautiful landscaping.The condo came with a truck, with automatic transmission, leather seats....excellent!! Dive shop just next door with a great customer service. And Ricardo from the management office was very helpful. Thank you for the hospitality and hope to return soon.

Perfect Oceanside Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this beautiful condo! The owner and Ricardo from the management company were great to work with and very responsive. The condo itself is nicely decorated, spacious and very clean. The kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed. We loved the view, the covered outdoor patio space and the pool. We dove with Dive Friends next door and loved the convenience of the rinse tanks and locker storage for our dive gear. We also rented the owner's truck which was great for diving and trips to the store. Some of the other reviewers noted the noise from the airport not we barely noticed. All-in-all this was just a great experience and we can't wait to return!
