About the property

Beautiful 2 bedroom(5 sleeps) apartment with wonderful oceanview

Situated on one of the best locations on Bonaire we offer our beautiful, spacious ground floor apartment with large terrace, big communal pool, ocean access and a truly stunning ocean view!

A completely new kitchen area has been installed in November 2016!! Please check out the photos!

Air-conditioning in living room and both bedrooms. Mosquito screens at all doors and windows (although there are hardly mosquito's anymore). After opening the sliding door you can easily access the (Magna) pool. A few steps more and you have access to the sea from our own deck for snorkeling and diving. Last summer we jumped into the water with our kids to swim between the dolphins. Awesome! On the way back we saw a sea-turtle and a manta-ray! This is the perfect place for families and/or snorkelers/divers. Dive shop “Dive Friends Bonaire” is located in the same building and we offer 20% discount vouchers!

About Rob Wennekendonk

We are a Dutch family with 2 boys(age 13 & 10) living in The Netherlands and spend our holidays in Bonaire for 10 years now.

Rob Wennekendonk purchased this condo in 2007

Why Rob Wennekendonk chose Kralendijk

We have always liked the Dutch Antilles since my wife is born on Curacao and some family is living there. Although we like Curacao, we prefer Bonaire because of the ease-of-going, it's less crowded and the people of Bonaire are really kind.

What makes this condo unique

Snorkeling, diving & swimming can be done within a few steps away from the apartment. Port Bonaire is a small and quiet resort.

Dive shop "Dive Friends Bonaire" is onsite where you can get all you need to enjoy diving. At the dive shop you can also rinse your dive gear and store/dry it.

Benefits for guests from the US: local currency is US Dollar, 110 volt(no adapters needed) and English is second language on the island

They have redone the kitchen and it is lovely.

We have stayed in this condo before. Enjoy how convenient everything is for us.

Compound feels safe also.

Hope to return to beautiful Bonaire soon.

Modern, clean and well appointed. Perfect location. Great owner!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed to Port Bonaire 201 owned by Rob W. from Aug 7, 2017 - Aug 14, 2017. Our only complaint is that we did not stay longer! The kitchen is fully stocked and the bedrooms are very comfortable. A/C throughout the space although you can open the front and back doors and have a lovely Caribbean breeze! The condo is located super convenient to everything and don't be scared away by the proximity to the airport....it's a blessing! There are only a few planes in and out each day so it's not annoying at all and you will be glad you are so close when you arrive and depart. The condo has a pool and a house reef so you can dive right out your back door! Overall I can't recommend Port Bonaire and Rob more highly. We will be back....and not soon enough for me!

A perfect week in Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a great week at one of our favorite places in the world: Bonaire! And we now have a new favorite place to stay! Port Bonaire #201 is well-situated on the island and is well-maintained and supplied with all you need for a perfect vacation. The first-floor location was a plus when it came to our dive gear. Dive Friends Bonaire is onsite, and is one of the departure points for boat dives. I concur with previous comments about the airport across the street being a plus, rather than a minus. It was nice to be able to walk across the street with our luggage, check into the condo, and pick up our rental truck later. Noise from the airport was a non-issue. The kitchen is better stocked than mine at home, making cooking a pleasure. The combination oven / microwave was a first for us, but the instruction book (in English!) is located in a drawer of the living room desk, and we figured it out, and used both features with no problem. We also made good use of the washing machine and appreciated the drying rack . The beds are very comfortable, and we slept great! In addition, owner Rob communicated with me promptly and was a pleasure to work with. Thanks so much, Rob, for a trouble-free, enjoyable week, and I hope this unit is available the next time we go to Bonaire! There is no place I would rather stay!

Very convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed working with the property owner via email before and during our stay. He quickly resolved our questions/ issues. We loved the fact that Port Bonaire is so close to the dive operation we use and the unit we stayed in was quite comfortable. We were not made to feel very welcome, however, by the in- residence owners. We felt like we were under their scrutiny the entire stay. On our first day we were reprimanded for not showering before entering the pool, and scolded for not reading the "house rules." We witnessed many others (guests/residents?) doing the same thing throughout our stay with no scoldings! It was puzzling that would even be an issue since the pool is a favorite watering hole for swarms of sea gulls all day long! To say this is not a family friendly place is an understatement. Kids who ventured into the pool had to be vigilant not to splash water outside of the pool- a resident couple sitting close by was accidentally splashed by a wayward ball and subsequently reprimanded for the infraction!

Simply the best

  • 5 of 5

As we are finishing our 2 week stay in the condo I have to say it was wonderful! Again, as everyone has said, Rob the owner was always responsive to email and questions, he was fantastic. The local rep for the unit was also responsive to our questions. For myself, having the A/C in the whole condo was fantastic as I suffer with asthma and allergies. I was perfectly comfortable and could escape the heat as needed. It was the small details that made this condo special, they have a clothesline and hooks outdoor, a hung 1/2 coconut to feed the birds jelly :), lots of hooks to hang things up in the condo, and fans in the bathrooms. This was our 4th trip to Bonaire and I loved the location...airport was NO problem at all, and being so close it was convenient to check in here. The reef right in front of the condo was fantastic! LOVE all the fish, and my husband and sister (divers) really enjoyed diving in this area. I want to come back.

My only (very tiny) complaints would be to have an instructions when checking in on the microwave/oven. Glad we asked about it because then we were shown how to use it. Also the washer was interesting to figure out. Maybe a measuring cup/spoons would be helpful, but all other amenities were awesome and plentiful!

Beautiful condo in a wonderful location.

  • 4 of 5

Although my wife and I had vacationed on Bonaire five times in the past, this was the first time we had used VRBO, and the first time to stay at Port Bonaire condominiums. The location is convenient, right across the road from the airport. However, we arrived after dark and expected someone to meet us at the airport. That didn't happen, but after a few tense moments, we found where we were to go and got checked into our unit. The kitchen was just remodeled within the past month, and met our needs, though the directions for the dishwasher, oven and clothes washer were in Dutch or "international symbols", and confusing for this North American. I was disappointed that there was no microwave, though at checkout, the agent said she thought the oven actually doubled as a microwave. If so, I couldn't figure it out, and can't imagine how a microwave could have metal grates.

At any rate, I don't want to sound negative, because Rob, the owner, was very responsive to any concerns and was pleasant to work with, assuring me that it was OK to text him with any problems (such as not finding a clothes line to dry our clothes). As the picture shows, this ground floor unit is merely 40 feet from a beautiful pool, with plenty of comfortable reclining deck chairs to sit in the sun or shade, and about 80 feet from a stairway going down into the sea; an easy way to go snorkeling right in front of your unit. We are not "night life" people, and spent our evenings in the unit reading or playing cards, and would have appreciated better lighting for that. Although there are comfortable chairs and a couch in the living room, the only place where the light was really adequate for reading a book or magazine was at the kitchen/dining table, so would suggest that Rob get some more powerful reading lights in the northeast corner of the room.

We have never felt unsafe on Bonaire, but this is especially true at Port Bonaire, which is a fully enclosed, gated community.

My wife and I slept in the bedroom with twin beds the first week, and left the king size bed to our daughter and son-in-law. When they left the second week, we moved into that bedroom, but after 2 nights, went back to the twin beds, which to my taste, are much more comfortable. The king size bed is too firm to my liking, but granted, everyone is different.

You know they are doing something right when you have to book months in advance! Enjoy your stay!
