Bon Bini. Welcome to Bonaire.
Wake up to bananaquits, troupials and parakeets calling. Throw open the room-darkening drapes to your stunning view of the Caribbean. Step onto your private screened porch and you’ll see from Klein Bonaire all the way up the shore to the mountainous north end of Bonaire.
Relax with your morning coffee and breakfast on the porch. Decide on the red or blue flip flops, bathing suit or shorts. Spend your whole day having fun.
Come home to beautiful sunsets while relaxing with a cold drink on the screened porch or sundeck. Have a nice dinner. Pick your next day’s activities. Drift off to sleep in your comfy bed. Then, do it all again tomorrow.
Now you’re on Island Time. Ahhhh
We chose our piece of paradise not only for its view but also for its peaceful and convenient location. You are only 75 – 100 feet from the Caribbean with easy access to the turquoise waters of Bari Reef. You have choices – enter from our sandy beach, our sundeck or our pier for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Bari, our house reef, is renowned for the greatest fish diversity in the Caribbean. Bonaire, consistently ranked as one of the best dive destinations in the Caribbean, defines shore-diving freedom.
Our studio’s location at Sand Dollar is perfect because:
You have the privacy, security, trade winds and fabulous views afforded by our second floor, oceanfront site
Have the services of our on-site Dive Friends Bonaire full service dive/snorkel operation at your fingertips- right next to our building. They offer guest gear storage, easy access to air, free upgrades to Nitrox, free weights and belts, rinse tanks, professional instruction, boat dives, island tours, kayaking and much more.
You can choose to use Bonaire Dive and Adventure instead. They too are a full service dive operation with gear storage and boat diving and are located next to our building to the south.
Next to Fisheye Photo, great resource for photography & video
Far off the street with guest parking just across the lawn. Traffic noise is a non-issue
Central to all the island’s shore diving sites - none is more than a short drive along the coast
Far enough from the buzz of downtown Kralendijk to enjoy peace by the sea
Convenient and adjacent to banking, Internet café, groceries, ice cream shop, spa/fitness, shopping, restaurants.
Our fully furnished, oceanfront studio will be your home away from home. It has everything you need to make your vacation the best ever.

Some resorts provide air conditioning at extra cost. Some air condition only the bedrooms. Our quiet air conditioning system cools the entire condo. But, you might not even need it. It’s amazingly comfortable with only fresh breezes. Because of our orientation and height above the sea, we have consistent Trade Winds for natural cooling. They flow into the condo through the window and full size screen door and out the 9-foot wide sliding glass doors across the screened porch. Ceiling fans on the porch, over the bed & couch and in the bath add to your comfort.
Want to enjoy Bonaire with more friends or family? We can arrange the rental of a similar, nicely appointed adjacent to and near our condo. You’ll enjoy being so close, but have the privacy of your own place.

Once you’re there, our on-island management team will take care of any needs during your stay. And, before you head home, we hope you’ll post your comments so we can make your next stay even better. You’ll be thinking about your next Bonaire visit even before you leave the island!
