Thank you for taking a look and Bon Bini!!! to Reefs Edge Bonaire, an Oceanfront condo with fabulous views and amazing Sunsets! Our condo is located right across the street from Flamingo International Airport. This lovely condo is located on the second floor and is an end unit for additional privacy. Wait until you see the spectacular views overlooking the beautiful waters of Bonaire! My guests are amazed and say these are some of the best views on the island! We love sitting on the large balcony with 270 degree views. You can see Klein Bonaire (and watch the dive boats taking divers to/from); you can see the mountains in Washington Slaagbai Park; you can see cruise ships come in, Naval ships sometimes, and large private yachts owned by billionaires. The Trade winds blow constantly which provide a soothing cooling effect for relaxing any time during the day or evening. I love sitting on my balcony watching the boats go by; feeling the trade winds; checking out the fish, turtles, and eagle rays in the water below. I can sit here for hours being entertained by all of it with my favorite drink in hand (either a glass of wine or Polar/Heineken beer). Feel the stress just melt away because now you are on vacation in Bonaire.

The condo is very open with high cathedral ceilings in the kitchen and living room with lots of nice natural sunlight inside. There is air conditioning throughout the condo, but if you prefer the trade winds that blow constantly day and night, feel free to turn off the AC and open the windows and doors and let the breeze blow through. We have newly installed SCREENS on ALL doors and windows!!! It really does feel nice to have the fresh air and get away from the AC until bedtime. This is one of my favorite things when I arrive to Bonaire - to feel the breeze blowing and the smell of salt water. You know you are at the Ocean now!

The bedroom is pretty and cozy with sun reducing curtains so that you can rest peacefully. We have an end unit for additional privacy but is very close to the dive shop for added convenience.

About Christine Rufener

I met my husband while taking scuba classes back in the states in 1997 (thanks Ron P. !!!). My husband shared his beloved stories of diving in Bonaire. For a milestone birthday, we vacationed in Bonaire and I have been hooked ever since. After discovering how easy it was to shore dive in Bonaire and all that it had to offer to include checking out the wonderful sea life (found a seahorse on my birthday dive at Windsock), I knew this was the place I would semi-retire to one day. The people are friendly and warm; the sun seems to shine all the time; the casual atmosphere and spectacular diving. What more could you ask for?

Christine Rufener purchased this condo in 2014

Why Christine Rufener chose Bonaire

Why do we love having a vacation home in Bonaire? The lovely Dutch architecture and the nice, friendly, and lovely people that we have met. Our condo is located in a place where people seek out to refresh, rejuvenate, and relax in a quiet and peaceful setting where you can snorkel or dive right in front of the condo. There is an awesome operating dive shop on the premises who are great at what they do, a lovely pool and pool deck, it is just very relaxing!!! I really wouldn't need to leave this place and would enjoy every day there. But...there are so many things to do in Bonaire, fabulous restaurants, awesome diving, a nice sandy beach just a minute of the road from the condo. Close to everything - the airport is especially convenient - you can walk right over to the condo (save on 2 days of truck rental)!!

What makes this condo unique

* Large spacious open and airy waterfront condo.

* Large open balcony overlooking water with plenty of table and chairs.

* Lots of windows doors to receive fresh air from trade winds (our unit gets the best breeze due to its location)

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Christine went above and beyond in making us feel welcome in her home. As first time Airbnb-ers as well as first time visitors to the island of Bonaire, her gracious hospitality was greatly appreciated. Weeks before we arrived, she reached out to provide a run down of the island and helped us arrange for a truck for the week. She also sent an incredibly comprehensive welcome packet, full of great recommendations and discounts, details about the condo and instructions for using all the appliances, as well as practical information for getting around for the island. The condo itself was exactly as represented, with one exception: the views are even more spectacular in person. There is no telling how many hours I logged on that patio in between dives! Other than breakfast we ate most of our meals out (the food in Bonaire is too good not to!) but the condo's kitchen is fully stocked and easy to navigate for those wanting to prepare their own meals at home. Being right next door to Dive Friends was incredibly convenient, and by staying at Reefs Edge we were able to get 20% off on dives and air. You do hear the dive shop opening up in the morning, but being that this is Bonaire and not your typical sleep-in-late kind of vacation destination, we were usually already awake most mornings. On the opposite side of the condo, also within walking distance, was Te Amo beach and its resident food truck, Kite City, where we ate many of our lunches and enjoyed one incredible 3 course dinner on the beach. We would definitely recommend Reefs Edge Bonaire to anyone traveling to Bonaire and hope to be back ourselves sometime in the future. ”

Great Location with Outstanding Views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful 1 BR apartment with a fully equipped kitchen for two weeks. The apartment is in the private Port Bonaire Apt Complex which has gated privacy/security fence and plenty of private parking. It is very convenient being across from the airport terminal but one rarely hears any aircraft. The covered patio/terrace facing the Caribbean offers unobstructed panoramic views of the Caribbean including Klein Bonaire and the coastline all along the western side of the island up to the northern tip ( National Park). Very impressive.

Another advantage (especially for scuba divers) is the apartment is right next to the Dive Friends dive shop which offers a 20% discount to renters!. This makes boat diving and tank refills for shore diving incredibly convenient. There are about 20 great shore dives just minutes away from the apartment by car / truck. You can also snorkel or take a dive right from the private pool /dock area to sites like "18 Palms" and "Te Amos" without leaving the private Port Bonaire apartment complex. They have stairs access into the water from their private dock including showers and a rinse tank. The pool is beautiful and super clean.....outstanding after snorkeling / diving or to watch the sunset. Windsock Beach a wonderful SHADED beach just south of the complex within a few minutes walk. Windsock is great for swimming and snorkeling. Don't miss the Kite City food truck right to the south of the complex.

This wonderful apartment gave us everything we needed for two great weeks of diving, snorkeling and relaxing. We cook many meals at the apartment, going out to some fabulous restaurants just a couple of times per week. The apartment is squeaky clean and the on-site apartment manager is very supportive if your need anything or have questions. The owner is also super responsive to any inquires / questions.

To me the most impressive aspect of this apartment is sitting on the back terrace with the constant cooling trade winds keeping you comfortable while you look out at the unobstructed view of the Caribbean Sea ( with or w/o a glass of wine or ice cold beer!)

Do not hesitate to rent this Caribbean Gem !!

We had a wonderful stay at the reefs Edge Condos. Christine was very responsive to all our needs and we would definitely stay there again. The location was perfect for us with a Dive Center right next door. The condo was very clean and newer than several others we considered. Great views and a nice Waterfront pool too :-) thanks again Christine. See you next time !

sunrise and sunset from balcony

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Reefs Edge. The property manager met us at the airport and walked us over. Tidy one bedroom with a glorious balcony and great breezes. The kitchen was well stocked though we did not cook there at all. Bed was comfortable. Ac worked great but with the breezes we used it only to sleep at night. We did use the property’s access to both dive and snorkel. Very east access in and out of the water but a short swim up the canal to get to the reef. Loved sitting outside and watching the boats go by and the pelicans hunt. Owner communicated well about what would be provided. Took her recommendation on a truck rental and was very pleased.

The property location could not be beat. It was beautifully maintained. The a/c worked well and the views were matchless. Loved it. Would return in a heartbeat.

Great condo in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at Reefs Edge condo for 5 days in the spring of 2016. Its a beautiful condo in a great location.

Before arriving, Christine provided a lot of information about the condo and Bonaire in general. She sent a detailed brochure with information, restaurant reviews, laundry information, even a coupon for a discounts at the dive shop next door. She got us in touch with someone to rent truck from for our stay.

We were met at the airport by the property manager to show us around and answer questions.

The condo itself is nice. Perfect for a couple. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen well stocked. We truly enjoyed the balcony for the views of the water, Klein Bonaire, birds, iguanas sunning themselves, as well as fishing jumping out of the water.

The location is good. There is good snorkeling and diving right out of the condo's patio area. Its a short drive from town, but not so close to have to deal with the mess of the downtown area.

I was skeptical of the location being close to the airport, but that wasn't a bother at all. We rarely heard the planes, and it was easy on the last morning of our stay to make it to the airport.

Owner's Response: Eriks and wife, we are thrilled to have provided the accommodations that suited your needs and that you had such a good time. I am happy to hear that you tried some of the restaurants that we recommended. There are so many good places to eat and always fresh fish to be served. It is so nice to sit on the balcony and be entertained by the wildlife and boats that go by. Our favorite spot. Love it and love Bonaire!
