A truck can now be arranged along with a condo reservation. The truck price is $315 (extra 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.
One-bedroom, one-bath, fully air conditioned (3 AC units) oceanfront condo at the wonderful Sand Dollar Resort. This unit can accommodate 2 adults and a third person in a convertible sofa bed. The kitchen, living and dining areas look out over the Sand Dollar shore frontage, across the water north of Klein Bonaire, toward the elevations of the island's north end. The LR has a new flat screen TV receiving cable transmissions, as does the separate BR. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, breakfast bar and screened porch (lanai) with a recliner and small table seating four. Unit A15 is on the ground floor at the end of the building closest to the dive shops, yet far enough away to miss the hustle and bustle of the dive shop, pier and a restaurant right next door. You truly get the best of both worlds, being very close to the dive shop and pier, yet still having the quietness and privacy you want. A15 has ample space (850 sq ft). As you can see from the comments, every attempt has been and will be made to accommodate you and make your vacation special. The owners, Peggy and Larry, continue to upgrade the unit's appearance and ease-of-use: The internet is now accessible via a high speed modem/router dedicated to just unit A15. The living/dining/kitchen and bathroom areas have been re-painted. Both are light and airy. New food storage shelving has added to the kitchen. A new, on-demand water heater has been installed, insuring that you don't EVER run out of hot water. The dishwasher is new. The bathroom vanity and mirrored cabinet are new as is the toilet. There are new hooks in the shower enclosure for hanging wet items. The interior decor has been upgraded with the addition of framed prints on the walls of the living area and a chest of drawers has also been added. New shelving has been placed in the living area, as has a small desk and lamp for computer use and battery charging. Puppets decorate the space above the desk. In the living area, spaciousness has been augmented by addition of a new coffee table, accompanying the new couch/sleeper sofa. In the dining area, a new dining table and chairs were recently added. The bar stools are also new.
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.'

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!
