About the Property

Oceanfront Resort Luxury Suite - Immense Living Space - Quiet - Near Downtown

THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER SAND DOLLAR APARTMENT!

This high-end 2200+ sqft apartment was designed as the primary residence of Sand Dollar's developer. It's a 3 bedroom condo converted into a 2 bedroom with immense living spaces.

Chosen by our guests as the best 2 bedroom oceanfront apartment in Bonaire. Our guests say that it is “peaceful”, “has breathtaking views”, “luxurious”, “private”, “spacious” and “diver friendly.”

It is private - it's the whole second floor of the building. And we're in front of the other Sand Dollar buildings, only 16 feet away from the sea with panoramic views from every window. You can't get any closer!

The Blue Zone was recently renovated and has a new kitchen, bathrooms, furniture, tiles, doors & windows.

The apartment is cool and breezy and completely screened in - mosquito free.

Full time night time security guards patrol the premises.

Both bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans and have king size beds & en suite bathrooms.

The kitchen is fully equipped with black granite countertops, dishwasher, oven, oversized cooktop, Senseo coffee machine, blenders, toasters, microwave... the list goes on.

Transport to and from the airport is included in your stay.

Internet, wifi and cable tv is also included.

A local cell phone will be made available to you.

There is a television in each bedroom and an IPhone/Ipod speaker dock in the living room. There is a washing machine, digital safe, iron and hair dryer.

For rentals 2 weeks and longer, there is a weekly cleaning service included, where towels and linens are changed.

The reef is right in front and it's a Bonaire classic. According to years of REEF surveys, Bari Reef, as it is called, has more biodiversity than other reefs in Bonaire. Your morning snorkel will be great, your daytime and night dives will be exceptional.

Sand Dollar Resort is the largest oceanfront community in Bonaire with long pathways along the waterfront. Unlike many Bonaire apartments, there are no roads or public access between you and the water. And it's quiet! The sounds of development are elsewhere.

The resort facilities include:
- shore diving and snorkeling in front
- 5 star PADI dive shop called Bonaire Dive Friends (check out their website - or ours for a list of their services)
- swimming pool with pool-side bar/restaurantt
- outdoor grill and dining facilities
- ocean platform with recliners for sunning
- outdoor showers and washrooms
- two tennis courts

There are many fine restaurants within a 5 minute walk from the apartment. There is a world class spa, gym and physiotherapy centre just across the street with morning and evening fitness / yoga classes.

You’ll see many photographs and paintings on the walls of the apartment. All of the works are for sale, should you like any of them. If you would like to see more of our work or find out about your hosts, check out our DreamWrecks website.

Mid-week cleaning and laundry available on request. One of the king size beds can be changed to 2 twin beds on request.

Car: Recommended

The apartment is a 10 minute walking distance to downtown shopping and dining. The walk is along the waterfront and very enjoyable.

The apartment is far enough away from the downtown to be unencumbered by roads, traffic, noise and cruise ship nonsense - but close enough to enjoy the conveniences.

Sand Dollar has expansive private oceanfront access - right in front of the apartment. Great for snorkelling and diving. On Resort Dive Shop services, as well as tennis courts and swimming pool.

5 top quality restaurants right near by as well as a grocery store

Please note: Map location on VRBO is NOT correct. Sand Dollar is further north than the point indicated.
