About the Property

This cute 2nd story studio has the nicest ocean view at Hamlet Oasis.

Our Caribbean home away from home, Sunset Dreams, has a location that is unparalleled in this price range, perfect for a couple! Being on the upper floor affords you a tremendous view of the western horizon for unbelievable sunsets over the water as well as a direct view of the white sand beaches of Klein Bonaire.

The studio is oriented to take full advantage of the cooling East to West trade winds. We have just reconfigured our covered balcony with brand new patio furniture as well as the original table and chairs so you eat or relax any time of day without being in the direct sun. The balcony roof means you can enjoy the views during the heat of the day while enjoying the breeze.

We have taken great attention to detail in equipping our kitchen to make sure all the utensils required are available for your cooking needs. We enjoy cooking many of our meals for ourselves and island friends and the cost savings are substantial. Also, in December of 2015, we added a 2nd refrigerator to double the capacity for your food and beverages.


Being a part of Hamlet Oasis Resort gives you access to the resort pool which is less than a 1 minute walk away. The pool is 6 foot deep end to end and large enough to do laps, if you like. It is surrounded by wonderful, mature tropical landscaping and palm trees to give you the true Caribbean feel! The Hamlet location of Yellow Sub/Dive Friends dive shop is only 75 feet away so carefree diving and rental equipment are very convenient. There are rinse tanks and a fresh water shower as well as air/Nitrox tanks and a retail shop to take care of all your dive needs. You can take a short walk along the waterfront sidewalk to either Rumrunners or Ingridients restaurants or drive only minutes to dozens of other top notch restaurants.

The unit is right in the middle of the northern dive sites but still has very easy access to the southern sites as well as the windsurfing at Lac Bay. We have maximized the square footage of the studio to be comfortable and functional while retaining its coziness whether you choose to spend a week or multiple weeks. One of the main benefits of our studio over most condos on Bonaire is that the entire unit has AC instead of just the bedrooms. This allows you cool comfort in the living room and kitchen where you spend most of your waking hours when not diving. (We do ask that you exercise environmental consciousness and not run the AC when you are gone for the day).

Also, we will email you a 10% off voucher for all 5 Dive Friends locations. The 10% applies to air tanks and weights, dive courses and boat dives which can add up to substantial savings.

We also have an on-island manager who will meet you at the condo and provide you the keys and a quick tour of the unit. She is also available during your stay in case of any issues with the unit. Her phone number is included in your Welcome Letter which we email you prior to your departure to the island.
On the rare occasion Sunset Dreams is not available for your travel dates please check out VRBO #801172, our Indonesian inspired villa at Waterland Village, in the southern end of Kralendijk, for your next dive vacation.

Car: Recommended

Our studio at Hamlet Oasis has a tremendous location in the middle of the northern dive sites of Bonaire but is still only minutes away from the southern dive sites as well.

The unit is literally 75 feet away from the Hamlet satellite location of Dive Friends Bonaire, the largest dive operator on the island. It is a full service shop with air and Nitrox as well as retail sales and equipment rentals. You can get a tank and dive the house reef, The Cliff, without even getting in your vehicle. They also have rinse tanks for your gear and an outdoor, fresh water shower for your use at the end of the day. All the northern sites such as Oil Slick, 1000 Steps, Andrea I & II and Karpata are minutes away and all the southern sites are less than 10 minutes away. Downtown Kralendijk is less than 5 minutes away as well.

The pool at Hamlet and the bars and restaurants of nearby Capt. Don's and Buddy Dive are within a 2 minute walking distance. Even if you choose to be a home body, we have taken a lot of time and effort to make the unit comfortable and functional. We have fully equipped our kitchen with all the utensils and equipment we would expect in a completely functional kitchen. Also, in December of 2015, we added a 2nd refrigerator to increase the capacity of cooling space for your food and beverages. We cook regularly for ourselves and friends while at the condo and have found the money savings a huge benefit to eating out every meal. We have added brand new patio furniture to the covered balcony so, if relaxation is the order of the day, you can sit in shaded comfort and enjoy the island breezes with a good book and stare at the beautiful, turquoise waters...plus a nice thing about a studio too is that the entire unit is air conditioned unlike bigger places where a/c is only in the bedrooms!

If you choose not to drive one day, there are 3 resort restaurants/bars within walking distance -- Rumrunners @ Capt. Don's Resort, Ingridients @ Buddy Dive Resort and Eddy's @ Sand Dollar Resort. There is also Between the Buns which is an awesome breakfast and lunch option as well as Zens and Between the Buns which is a brand new restaurant which has received great reviews from the locals.

Across the street is an awesome Chinese grocery which is extremely clean and well stocked if you need items last minute and don't want to drive to the main grocery stores. Great location all the way around!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: After having owned 2 condos at Lighthouse Beach Resort for many years, we decided to become Bonaire residents again. Phil has been a Rescue Diver for 13 years while Lisa just got her certification this year while vacationing on the island. Our time on the island is a great diversion from the winter weather in the mountains of North Carolina but, we try to enjoy the island any time of year when the opportunity presents itself. Phil has been diving on Bonaire for almost 10 years and has a wealth of knowledge about dive sites as well as other activities on the island. Do not be afraid to ask! On the rare occasion Sunset Dreams is not available for your travel dates please check out VRBO #801172, our Indonesian inspired villa at Waterland Village, in the southern end of Kralendijk, for your next dive vacation.

Why the Owner Chose Hato, Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands:
Location, location, location! We researched the real estate market on the island extensively before our most recent trip and decided to purchase this unit because of its tremendous location and ocean views. It was also affordable enough so we could offer our guests the best value for waterfront accommodations on Bonaire. It, by far, has the best ocean views at Hamlet and any other condo in this price point. The second story location affords you unparalleled views of the nightly sunsets over the water, hence the name, Sunset Dreams! And, its proximity to the Dive Friends location next door leads to a seamless dive vacation. Phil has been using and doing business with Dive Friends since his introduction to Bonaire almost 10 years ago and their service is awesome. We hope you agree! On the rare occasion Sunset Dreams is not available for your travel dates please check out VRBO #801172, our Indonesian inspired villa at Waterland Village, in the southern end of Kralendijk, for your next dive vacation.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The location on the ocean and next to the dive shop and pool says it all. Also, being a studio, you can enjoy the Air conditioning in the whole unit while relaxing in the evening instead of just the bedrooms. We do ask that the air conditioning is only used when you are in the unit as the cost of electricity on the island is very high. We would like to continue to offer our little piece of paradise at these prices so we ask all our guests to abide by this request as it only takes minutes to cool the unit when you get back in the evening. Because of the buildings orientation it is very easy to open the windows and sliding glass door and allow the trade winds to breeze through the unit. We have reconfigured the unit to give it a very efficient floor plan. There s definitely a feel of 3 distinct living areas within the studio--living room, kitchen and bedroom along with the separate bath. On the rare occasion Sunset Dreams is not available for your travel dates please check out VRBO #801172, our Indonesian inspired villa at Waterland Village, in the southern end of Kralendijk, for your next dive vacation.
