About the Property
Condo, 1 Bedroom + a convertible sofa bed, 1 Bath
Most recently, a new dresser, bedside tables, mirror and headboard have been placed in the bedroom. In addition, new opaque curtains have been added and the walls painted, consistent with the rest of the unit. The walls have been decorated with a number of Gyotaku prints of marine animals.
Superb diving and snorkeling just footsteps from your condominium. More species of fish have been identified out front on Bari Reef than on any other reef in the Caribbean. In mid-October, 2012, Dive Friends of Bonaire became an on-site dive operation exclusively serving Sand Dollar owners and guests. Diving is available directly from Sand Dollar property, a scant 70 yds from the oceanside door. Tanks can be picked up from the same location for use at other dive sites. If divers or snorkelers prefer to work with Bonaire Dive & Adventure, it is only a few yards further and its dock is very inviting. Either shop can handle all of your needs for equipment rental, instruction, boat dive, shore dive and 24 hr secure gear storage. Dive Friends recently opened a retail shop just across the main street from Sand Dollar.
Restaurants, pool, convenient store, ice cream shop and cell phone rentals, tennis courts and grills are all on site. A spa and a gym are nearby. Sand Dollar provides beach towels for guests and also has numerous new chaise-type beach chairs placed along the waterfront for guest use.
Sand Dollar is located approximately 1.5 miles from the town center, about a 20 minute walk.
This is a wonderful resort and unit with privacy, yet has the convenience of being close to everything. It has the feeling and comfort of a home-away-from-home. Sand Dollar has the longest shore frontage of any resort on Bonaire.
The island of Bonaire was recently designated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as having the most pristine coral reefs in the Caribbean. It is considered one of the world’s top dive destinations and is routinely voted the 'Top overall Caribbean/Atlantic destination according to quality of its diving,' and voted #1 in several other categories including, 'Health of Marine Environment,' 'Macro Life' and 'Shore Diving' (Votes conducted by Scuba Diving Magazine). In addition, Bonaire is also regularly ranked very high (first or second) in several other categories including, 'Best Overall Destination,' 'Best Value for Diving Dollar,' 'Best Beginner Diving,' 'Best Snorkeling,' 'Best Visibility,' 'Best Marine Life' and 'Best Underwater Photography.'
A truck can now be arranged along with a condo reservation. The truck price is about $315 (insurance not included)/wk and is from Avis at the airport. It is simple to arrange an unlimited shore diving package with Dive Friends upon arrival ($175/wk)/diver).
Please check with the owner for an exact rental quote, as VRBO does not calculate the taxes properly.

About the owner: Peggy and Larry are warm water divers who recently retired to the cold of NH. The picture is from the underwater version of 'Little Shop of Horrors' -- 'Feed Me!'
Why the Owner Chose Hato, Kralendijk, Caribbean Netherlands:
We had dived Bonaire several times, as well as Roatan, Turks and Caicos, Bahamas, Dominica, Belize and the Florida Keys. The time seemed right to focus more on one locale. We do expect to continue going to different locations, but not as frequently. Recently dove Little Cayman and couldn't wait to return to Bonaire!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
We love the easy access to the water and dive shop just steps away. Plus, we are only a 2-3 min walk from an ice cream parlor, two restaurants, deli and liquor store!
