About the Property
2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, beachfront condo.
Surface Interval is on the second floor of Bellevue, a 10 unit luxury beachfront condo located in the quiet residential neighborhood of Belnem. Here you will enjoy peace and quiet as well as easy access to the best that Bonaire has to offer. The town of Kralendijk, where you will find wonderful restaurants and shops, is only a few minutes away. Belnem is central to many of the best dive and snorkel sites and is a short drive to the kite-boarding beach and the windsurfing bay. Because Bellevue is located on the leeward side of the island, the water is almost always calm on your private beach. Stroll across the soft sand straight into the sparkling, warm, clear, water for a swim or a snorkel. Imagine grabbing your dive gear from the poolside dive locker and taking a short swim out to one of the finest reefs in the Caribbean. Have breakfast on your terrace, overlooking the pool and the beach, and watch for dolphins that sometimes swim by over the reef. Enjoy dinner while you watch a spectacular sunset, and maybe even catch a glimpse of the “green flash”.
There are 2 bedrooms in Surface Interval, each with ensuite bathroom. Both bedrooms have queen size beds which were custom made to allow for twin size beds to slide underneath. All 4 beds feature top quality mattresses. We generally have 2 to 4 guests at a time but the entire apartment is equipped to accommodate 6 people for those special situations such as children sleeping in the room with their parents. Amenities in both bedrooms include air-conditioning, ceiling fans, built-in closets, dressers, night-stands, flat screen televisions with cable, DVD players, wireless high speed internet, alarm clocks, and hotel safes. One bedroom has a private balcony.
The living area has an open design with the kitchen, dining room, and living room all having a view of the Caribbean. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you will need to cook your meals at home including oven with ceramic cook-top, refrigerator/freezer with ice and water dispenser on the door, granite countertops, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, dishwasher, blender, electric tea kettle, and mixer. The dining room has a teak table with seating for 6. The living room has an air-conditioner, ceiling fan, cushioned teak seating, flat screen television with cable, DVD player, WII game console, portable Bose iPod docking station, wireless high speed internet, iPad, and 2 prepaid cell phones. There is a collection of books and DVDs and a set of fish, coral, and reef creature identification manuals. All doors and windows throughout the house have screens to allow you to enjoy the breezes.
Living on the second story is great for the view and for privacy. It also affords an extra level of security. Access is by stairs or elevator. For your peace of mind we have provided a wireless security system which you may choose to set when you leave the apartment, when you go to bed, or both. You will also find an electronic combination safe in each bedroom closet that is large enough to hold your laptops, cameras, passports, jewelry, wallets, and cell phones.
The view from the terrace is truly breathtaking. You will have an unobstructed view of the beach, the pool, the Caribbean sea, the island of Klein Bonaire, the mountains on the north end of Bonaire, the town of Kralendijk, and the sun setting over the sea. The furnishings include 2 cushioned teak recliners with foot stools, 2 cushioned teak lounge chairs, a teak dining table for four, a drying rack for towels and swimsuits, a ceiling fan, and lighting.
The island of Bonaire has so much to offer including consistently gorgeous weather, peace and quiet, friendly people, relaxed waterfront restaurants, kite-boarding, world-class windsurfing, the best diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean, and the best shore diving in the world. We think that there is no better place than Surface Interval from which to enjoy all this. Give it a try and we think you’ll agree.

Bellevue is located on the beach in the quiet residential neighborhood of Belnem. We believe that Belnem is the best location on the island for a number of reasons. It is on the west coast which is where all the shore diving and almost all of the boat diving is done. This is also the leeward side which means that the water will be calm on the beach for great swimming and snorkeling.
The main town, where you will find many nice restaurants and shops is a short drive north while many of the islands best dive sites as well as the main kite-boarding beach are a short drive south. The road east to Bonaire's world class windsurfing bay starts in Belnem. Whether you come to Bonaire to enjoy the best diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean, the fantastic kiteboarding and windsurfing, peaceful days on the beach and in the sea, or all of the above, Bellevue is the place for you.
Year Purchased: 2008
About: We (Bruce, Jean, and Sarah) are all avid snorkelers and divers. Jean and I first experienced the underwater world in St. John USVI almost 30 years ago and Sarah started snorkeling at 4 years old and was a certified diver at 12. We travelled to some great Caribbean locations in our search for the best snorkeling and diving including the USVIs, the BVIs, Akumal Mexico, Cozumel, and the Bay Islands of Honduras. In 2005 we made our first trip to Bonaire. We walked into the water with our masks and snorkels, swam out to the reef, and the search was over.
Why Belnem, Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands:
About 6 months after 'discovering' Bonaire we were back on the island to look for a vacation home. The choice turned out to be surprisingly easy. We walked onto the site of the yet-to-be-built Bellevue condo and realized there was no point in looking at anything else. We were standing on a soft, white sand beach, one of very few on Bonaire, and looking out on a view that was truly stunning.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Bellevue is in the ideal location on Bonaire. It is central to all the most popular activities on Bonaire but far enough from town to afford peace and quiet. While most places to stay in Bonaire are across the street, or further, from the water, nothing separates Bellevue from the water but the beach. You can enjoy this beautiful beach, and dive or snorkel on a world class coral reef without ever leaving the property.
