Water Front Studio On Hamlet Oasis Resort Bonaire

Bedrooms 1
Property type studio
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

This waterfront studio is a fantastic value as you have your own high speed internet connection, flatscreen with cable TV, on-site parking, on-site dive shop, swimming pool, big safe, bbq, cooler, chairs to take to the beach etc. etc.

In this waterfront studio with a great view at the ocean and Klein Bonaire and a lot of extra's you will feel at home right away. Inside you find a well equipped kitchen with a 4 burner gas cooker and toaster oven. There is also a small fridge, a coffee machine and a Dutch Senseo coffee maker.

Next to the kitchen is a sitting area with a sofa and flatscreen TV, there is a bed with good matresses, nice linens and towels and there is enough closet space. The studio has air conditioning and a ceiling fan.

In the bathroom is a shower with hot and cold water.

If you open the sliding door, you walk right onto the covered terrace, which also has rattan sun screens. There you can relax, barbecue, listen to the whistling of tropical birds or just stare at the ocean.

The apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay. Additional cleanings can be arranged upon request.

Location is important and we love ours. Our condo is the closest ground floor studio at the Hamlet Oasis Resort to the beach and dive center. You can also park right next to the studio!

Fantastic shore diving and snorkeling is located directly in front of the studio – rated the top reef in the Caribbean for variety of fish species. All just a convenient short walk away.

Dive Friends Bonaire (DVB), Yellow Submarine dive shop is conveniently located next door, so you can walk to get your dive equipment and dive in front of the unit. You are entitled to a 10% discount at DVB on shore diving, boat diving or courses if you rent our unit.

We have a suzuki grand Vitara jeep suitable for diving for $35 a day or a Toyota pickup truck for $40 a day. No extra fees.

Eccellente per due amanti del mare

  • 5 of 5

Stanza con angolo cottura, bagno spazioso con finestra, veranda sotto un piccolo portico. Perfetto per due persone. La posizione è fantastica, appena fuori del paese, ma con vicino un supermercato, a 50 metri dal mare. Che qui significa nuotare per venti metri e trovarsi già sulla caduta di coralli da -10 a -30/-45 secondo i punti. Tutta l’isola è frequentata da persone estremamente cortesi, sia turisti che residenti, e qui, in una specie di comprensorio, non si fa eccezione: salutarsi tra estranei è prassi corrente. All’arrivo troviamo lo studio ben sistemato e pulito, con biancheria più che sufficiente e una buona dotazione di cucina. La moka l’abbiamo noi, ma abbiamo dimenticato il ragnetto per adattarla al fornello. Si fa lo stesso! Ad accoglierci non è Ingrid, ma Marion e Berry, simpatici custodi, che ci consegnano la necessaria auto a noleggio per girare l’isola: perché cercarla altrove quando la si può ritirare a casa? La parcheggiamo qui, accanto casa. È una spaziosa Gran Vitara a benzina, e la benzina qui costa poco più di 1$/lt. Telefonare con un telefono europeo costa uno sproposito, ma talvolta può essere utile, oltre alle eventuali esigenze di sicurezza: le dotazioni di emergenza dell’auto sono al minimo necessario, e anche meno. Ingrid ci assicura che non lasciarci un telefono locale è stata una dimenticanza, ma noi non speravamo nemmeno tanto. Voi che venite dopo, ricordatevi di chiederlo. Sì, perché Ingrid risponde ad ogni ora, anche quando in Europa sono le 2 di notte, per mail, e rappresenta sempre un sicuro punto di riferimento, in mancanza di una reception. In casa ci sarebbe ventilatore e climatizzatore, non abbiamo avuto bisogno né dell’uno né dell’altro. Cosa manca? bazzecole: una tenda per la doccia, forse un frigo più grande con freezer (ma dove metterlo? impossibile!). Ovvio che in bagno non c’è il bidet, ma quello è un’esclusiva italiana che non è lecito cercare all’estero, e che non venga il solito italiano a lamentarsi! Insomma, la perfezione non è di questo mondo, ma qui ci siamo molto vicini. Anche il prezzo è assolutamente ragionevole, e lo avremo pagato in anticipo per paypal. Auto e casa, per una settimana in due, ci verranno circa 800$. Da tornare a Bonaire, paradiso dei sub, soprattutto dei sub “fai da te”, da tornare nell'Hamlet Studio, per il prezzo, il posto, la simpatia.

Hamlet 27-2 IS AWESOME !

  • 5 of 5

Hamlet 27-2 IS AWESOME in our opinion! The studio is clean, very well equipped and the shower is great! From the terrace you have a great view.

Many birds come by and eat sugar from the coconut hanging in the tree in front of the terrace. The swimming pool is great and well kept. The ocean is at your front door with a view on the island Klein Bonaire. Kralendijk is also close with many restaurants. If you need food, drinks or any other things you can cross the street and head for the Chinese supermarket. Bonaire is great, much to see, the colors of the ocean and salt pans are amazing. Anyway for Hamlet studio, Ingrid, Marion and Berry -> THUMBS UP !

Great location and reasonably priced

  • 5 of 5

Working with Ingrid, the owner was a pleasure and she made sure all our needs were accommodated. The location is great being close to the dive shop and of course the ocean. It also offers use of a the hamlet pool and had a small kitchen where we had all our breakfasts. The studio is a short ride to town and restaurants yet far enough away to maintain its quiet restful environment. We had a great week and will certainly return.

Great location, generous hosts. Diver's paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Hamlet Studio was the perfect place to spend a week diving on Bonaire. The studio is in the perfect location for diving- located approximately 50 ft from the water right at "The Cliff" dive site. This makes it perfect for early morning or night dives. There is no rinse tank at the studio but the DiveFriends dive shop (located just next door to the studio) has rinse tanks you can use so this was not a problem at all. It was very convenient to be located right next to a DiveFriends location, since getting tanks filled was as easy as walking from our studio's porch 30 ft over to the shop! You are also very centrally located in terms of the rest of the dive sites on the island, being an approximately 15 minute drive North to famous sites such as Karpata and 1,000 steps, or about a 20 minute drive south to the Salt Pier and beyond. You are a quick 5-10 minute drive from downtown Kralendijk, and there are many great restaurants within 5 minutes (including Rum Runners next door which you can walk to).

The studio was clean, simple, and nicely decorated. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. The WiFi performed flawlessly (we even brought a Chromecast to use on the TV to watch movies on). We chose to cook many of our meals at home, and the kitchen worked perfectly for this. Ingrid is an incredibly attentive host and excellent communicator. She very generously even allowed us to borrow her car at the last minute when our travel plans changed!

Overall I can not imagine a better place to stay on Bonaire, and I would recommend Ingrid's studio wholeheartedly to anyone looking for a low key, affordable, and Diver-centric location on the island.

Bonaire is voor ons Hamlet Studio....!

  • 5 of 5

Hamlet Studio is onze vaste stekje als we op Bonaire zijn. Al vele jaren komen we er om te genieten van een mooie duikvakantie. De studio is mooi gelegen, is goed ingericht en schoon. De studio heeft alles wat voor een fijn verblijf nodig is en is goed uitgerust. De auto (pickup of jeep) van de eigenaren Ingrid en Marcel huren we er altijd direct bij. Altijd alles prima in orde. We komen er volgend jaar wederom graag weer terug!
