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 15% discount vouchers!

About Rob Wennekendonk

We are a Dutch family with 2 boys(age 11 & 8) living in The Netherlands and spend our holidays in Bonaire for 8 years now.

Rob Wennekendonk purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Rob Wennekendonk chose Bonaire

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 apartment 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

Beautiful condo, great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 (parents, 2 young adults and grandparent) had a wonderful stay. Communication with the owner was easy and very responsive. The on island agent was the same. The condo was wonderful. It was immaculate. The new kitchen was beautiful, very well equipped with full size appliances. We cooked most of our dinners at the condo and ate outside on the patio enjoying the view. The bathrooms were nice, with great showers and water pressure. The beds were very comfortable. While at the condo, most of our time was spent on the patio or lower water deck enjoying the beautiful view and ocean breezes. We never used the air conditioning with nice breezes across the condo. The lower deck entrance to the water with stairs was easy. We snorkeled and dove starting from here, and also just enjoying swimming from here. We had an amazing view of the New Year’s fireworks happening all over the island, an unexpected extra! The condo complex layout is well planned, such that the patios and balconies are more private. There are not people from other condos walking near the patios to get to the pool. The complex is beautiful with plantings and very well maintained. There is convenient access to the nearby sandy public beach, with great snorkeling. Grocery stores are nearby with easy shopping and plentiful selection.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

It was the first time that our family, with a 4- year old and a 6- year old, visited Bonaire. We had been to Aruba before but we didn't really know what to expect from Bonaire. We fell in love with Bonaire. It was love at first sight. It is a very small island where you really feel very safe at all time. The airport is just in front of the condo, which is very easy to access by walking if you want. Despite our initial concerns, all reviews proved to be right and there was hardly any noise from the airport which could be heard in the condo. The views from the terrace of the condo are breathtaking. You can see the pool, the sea, and also enjoy the cruise ships that are arriving and leaving. You really enjoy every minute there. Rob is very helpful himself as well, answers your emails very fast, and gives you a lot of information on the island as . The property manager on site could not have been more helpful. The condo is equipped with everything you can think of. We have never been in a condo like this one. Most of the time there are just enough plates or pans for a family of 4 but this one has really everything and more than you really need.

I personally have a back problem and was already thinking about the back pain I would suffer from not sleeping in my own bed. The beds are so comfortable that I didn't have any back pain either. When you wake up and open the curtains of the master, the views are as breathtaking as the ones on the terrace. Unbelievable experience. The condo is well maintained and very clean.As the condo is on a ground floor, it is very easy for the kids to play in the pool while watching them from the terrace.

If I could rate the condo with more stars, I would surely do it because it is a once in a lifetime place and condo. We will surely go back there.

There are good restaurants on the island as well. We also started snorkeling as everybody said it was so beautiful there.

Bonaire and this condo is just the perfect match ! You will love it from the first day on .

Great responsiveness

  • 5 of 5

We rented Rob's property for a week in November. The responsiveness of the owner was exceptional. I have rented for several years on VRBO and Rob has been the most responsive. The property is on a very convenient location to the airport and we were never distracted by any noise. The convince to the Friends dive shop (next door to the complex) made it very easy for picking up tanks and equipment for diving. The diving on Bonaire is some of the best I have ever experienced.

Having air conditioning in every room was very beneficial as it was in the mid 80's every day and night we were there. I would highly recommend Rob and this condo to anyone looking for an enjoyable week in one of the best dive locations in the world.

Wonderful condo and complex

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from another fabulous trip to Bonaire.

This was our third time staying at Port Bonaire.

Love the complex; comfortable, convenient, and safe.

Since we dive love that the dive shop and locker are right next door.

Rob and his representatives were helpful and responsive. Making everything as easy as possible.

Love the condo, nice layout and amenities.

Already making plans for a return visit.

great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rob's condo for 8 days starting the end of May 2016. The condo was clean, the AC worked very well. The kitchen was nicely equipped, they even had a rice cooker. Which made my husband very happy. The unit was by the pool, which we never used, we were too exhausted from our 6 day scuba package with Dive Friends, who were fabulous to work with and adjacent to the condo complex.

As other guests have mentioned the complex, which is gated, is right by the airport. There was absolutely NO airplane noise and the fact you could just wheel your luggage to and from the condo was awesome. We picked up our rental from Avis the next day, would not recommend them. We got one of the older trucks, when they had tons of newer ones on the lot. Not sure why, my husband picked up the truck, I would have insisted on one of the nicer looking ones.

Back to the condo, some people mentioned the master bedroom mattress being hard, I thought it was just right, my husband felt it was hard. The dining table and chairs were adequate, the living room furniture were uncomfortable, thus we didn't use much, the pads and pillows were very soft with no support.

We would come back to this unit or the complex. Good experience overall.

We'll be back!

  • 5 of 5

We are a couple in our 50s who love to dive and love Bonaire. This was our first time staying outside a resort and first time for 2 weeks. Wasn't sure how we'd like the ground level, close to the pool since we have no kids, but we really loved it! Private patio didn't have people cutting across while sitting outside at the table (or any other time), yet near the cut through for OUR convenience worked out great since the dive shop was undergoing some work so we couldn't keep our gear there the entire time. The complex was big enough to meet some people if you wanted, but small enough so you didn't feel crowded. Right across from airport is no concern, in fact next time we will take our luggage to 'check in' and then go back and get the rental when the lines die down (we did reverse on check out). We used the 2nd room only for storage, but the hall toilet / sink was nice to have for 2 of us, especially when coming in from pool / back from diving. ACs in all rooms were great, even though we love the outdoors, AC was especially nice when cooking and sleeping. Many kitchen appliances (more than we needed / used) and decent kitchen set up. Nice extra touch to have some water and food in fridge upon arrival. Be sure to get lesson / location of the books in washer and microwave, since the controls are not in English and not always intuitive. Comfy bed in Master BR, didn't use LR much since we hung out at pool or patio mostly when home, but the set up was good and furniture fine. Cooked about half the time / went out half the time. Nice touch to have a fan in the master bathroom. Good set up overall for divers (shore via truck, off the dock or the on site dive shop) as well as others. Kids staying in another unit had fun in pool and looking for the local moray eel in the rocks at the dock.

I'm thinking if you don't want to rent a car and don't think you'll go out much, might be cheap to connect with a local cab driver at the airport and make arrangements for the week with them.

Lastly, this place seemed pretty secure - you cannot get to the back or front property from the next door beach or dive shop and there's a walk through in the middle of the 2 buildings from the parking lot. when we had some minor issues during our stay they were addressed quickly (even when we found out Would definitely rent again from Rob! great communication with me on booking and with his property manager.one hot water issue was user (our) error in using the controls).
