  • Perfect location for snorkeling and scuba diving

    "The home reef, the spectacular views from the terrace, and Leanne's attentiveness made this a five star experience. We stayed in Apt 1, which was clean, comfortable and had all the necessities. I can go on and on about what a great place and time we had, but here are the highlights: 1. The home reef is pretty shallow, so if you're not a diver, it's a perfect spot to snorkel. There's a small pathway couple of yards from the condo that leads you out to the reef. Turtles, eels, barracudas, FROG FISH! 2. It's a great location if you don't want to rent a car. A mid-size market and Friends Dive is close by. 3. Staying at Leanne's felt like I was a guest at a friends beach house. We loved meeting the guests from the other units. Great way to meet friends on vacation. 4. There were couple of minor inconveniences, and it's more to do with being on a small island. We lost water for about an hour and the TV never worked. (But, the internet reception was always strong. Very important.) There are no laundry machine in the condo, so you have to drop it off or go to a self-serve laundromat. And make sure you bring your debit card or personal checks. The banks here charge a lot for credit card use from the merchants. Lastly, bring a portable water bottle from home. Bonaire water is safe to drink, so fill it up, keep it cool and hydrate! All in all, we had a perfect vacation. Thanks Leanne and Tim for a lovely stay!!!"

  • Great Sand Dollar Studio!

    "I highly recommend this studio condo. This was my second trip to Bonaire, and third Sand Dollar unit I have stayed at. David was excellent to work with in making arrangements. The unit was in excellent condition and well stocked. Compared to most units it is very close to a staircase to the ocean. The pictures show the older staircase, which was apparently limited to snorkeling and swimming. The newer one is safe for scuba divers, thus making this unit very close to a dive entry. The unit had a dedicated wifi router, which is a significant improvement over one unit we used last year for which the Sand Dollar community wifi never worked. I was diving with some extra gear (pony bottle, etc.), so the ground unit was very convenient. The unit is on the north side of the complex, and the dive shop is on the south side. However, since one has a truck when diving in Bonaire, I simply drove over to pickup tanks each morning, even when diving near the condo. I would love to stay in F-17 again on a future trip."

  • Absolute Best Condo on the Island for Diving or Anything Else for that Matter!!!

    "We highly recommend this condo if you are planning a fabulous dive trip to Bonaire. You cannot beat the location for an easy access point to Bari Reef. Having dove all over the island, we still think Bari Reef has the best diversity. We always see turtles, squid, stone fish, juvenile drums and beautiful tarpon. You literally walk out the door about 20 steps from the condo into the ocean and this condo has a fabulous screened in porch with a large ceiling fan so you can hang up your gear, grab a quick bite and the gear is dry and ready for the next dive! If you dive with Dive Buddies, the tanks are located on your walk to the entry point - it can't get any more convenient or easier. There's a warm water rinse shower and bathrooms right when you get out - spoiled diving and we love it!! The condo itself is very nice and really big for a studio. The bathroom is great with the large shower and we were amazed how much hot water we had and the fact it was really hot. Everything worked great in the kitchen and there were plenty of towels and other necessities. We met wonderful people who live at Sand Dollar. The young lady who met us when we checked in and checked out was very prompt and super nice! Susan was great in providing communication and everything went so smooth (including our flights) that it was actually relaxing from the time we booked with Susan to the wheels touched down back at home. We look forward to staying with Susan again and again when we head to the true diver's paradise! Thanks!"

  • Awesome!

    "We stayed for a week over Christmas, and everything went great. The local manager, Karin, met us at the apartment and showed us how everthing worked, and made sure we had what we needed. The penthouse is very well equipped and has everything that you will need, including a cell phone with Karin's number in case you need to get in contact with her. We didn't though, as everything went smoothly. We used the barbeque grill on the deck several times, and what a great view overlooking the water. Just a short walk to the center of town, with plenty of bars and restaraunts nearby. If you are diving, Karin gave us a 20% discount coupon for all our diving with Dive Friends Bonaire. Herman, the owner, was good to work with via email during the booking process. As a previous poster mentioned there was some noise, but it most definitely was not a problem. This will be where we stay again the next time we rerurn to Bonaire."
