Beautifully decorated newer condo in downtown Kralendijk with fabulous terrace overlooking the water. Convenient to all Kralendijk has to offer in the way of shops, restaurants and nightlife. Monitored security system. Local manager provides airport pickup. Gourmet stocked kitchen, a chef’s delight includes all utensils and appliances. All areas of the condo, including the living room and kitchen are air conditioned, one of the few condos like this on the island. When comparing listing please verify what areas have air conditioning as many only provide air in the bedrooms. Perhaps one of the prettiest condos available for rent on the island!
We were at the condo for a week in February. Responses from the owner and his assistant were prompt and the entire process was easy and smooth. No extra/hidden fees, taxes, etc.
The place is nicely decorated and well furnished. The kitchen is great - we cooked a lot of meals here and we were not lacking anything. (There is even a slowcooker! seriously, this kitchen had everything) There is a supermarket a few minutes away by car. You cannot beat the location: right by the ocean and right in the middle of Kralendijk, near many of the restaurants. Be aware that the cruise ships dock at the pier right in front of the condo - so the street out front was busy with tourists, which made for some good people watching from the patio. Speaking of which, the patio was great. Comfortable chairs to sit in and relax and take a nap. Just need to mind the bugs - but we bought bug spray - I think we left a couple cans in the condo when we left.
The two bedrooms were comfortable and each of them has A/C, which was a bonus since my husband cannot sleep without it. We stayed in the master bedroom - it was nice and the ensuite bathroom is great. (loved the shower!!) The second bedroom has two twins, which can be pushed together. It also have an ensuite bathroom but the toilet is separate - it's across the hall. The couple staying in that room did not seem to mind though.
They have wifi! A must for us. And the tv has netflix :) The condo complex also has a small pool and has a secure storage space where you can hang your dive gear.
I cannot say enough good things about this place!!! We all loved it there and felt so at home. A great find, and I would recommend this to everyone.
Very nice condo, beautifully decorated. Well equipped. No hidden surprises or charges. Right downtown next to Capriccios Italian restaurant. Walking distance to many great restaurants.
We were met at the airport by property manager Donald even though the flight was four hours late. Donald led us to the property and gave us an orientation.
Would definitely stay here again.
Let me start by stating we absolutely loved the condo and would definitely rent here again. However the condo may not be for good for everyone. The condo was exactly as described with an ideal location for walking to restaurants and shopping. The only issue a renter needs to beware of is the cruise ship dock is in front of the condo and when in port the ship blocked the sunset and ocean view from the condo. Also tour venders set up tents in front of condo to solicit the passengers for various tours. The location and price point reflect these conditions and it never seemed to bother any of us as the cruise ships were only in 3 days out of 6 days.( sunset view was only blocked twice).
The condo has a wonderful kitchen with everything a home needs. The bathrooms were well appointed with plenty of towels and rain shower s in both bathrooms was an added bonus. The condo also has satellite television which was nice for watching the CFB National Championship game. The photos are very accurate.
We rented the truck from the owner as well. The truck was in great condition and has a bed cover that locked so we felt comfortable leaving some items in while we snorkeled. When traveling to Bonaire it is recommended to rent a truck in lieu of car due to some of the road conditions. We did a lot of shore snorkeling and the truck worked well for us.
Donald picked us up from airport on time and drove us to the condo were we reviewed the truck and condo. Donald was knowledgeable about all facets of the condo including the security system.
As stated I would definitely rent here again.
Loved the 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo! It was some of the most comfortable furniture we have had. The king bed was actually a true king, which is hard to find! The patio furniture is amazing and LOVED it. The kitchen had all we needed and then some, my only issues was there was so many dishes so there is room to store the food you buy. Would recommend scaling back a little on that.
The open living area was fantastic!! The pool was green for the first 2-3 days of our stay, but they come and started cleaning it, so got to use it the last 2 days of our week.
The only issue we had is that there was not a wash sink for cleaning out your dive gear. I missed read this in the site and this is a big deal for us. There is a hose at the pool, but nothing to rinse wet suites/gear out well. This surprised us being such a dive island; I thought this would be a given. We ended up going to Dive friends every day to rinse, but do not like using "community tubs". The location is great, easy to walk to things/dinner as well as getting to dive spots was central.
Overall we loved this place!
I had a wonderful two week stay on the island of bonaire. First let me say how nice and friendly all the island people are, not once did we feel scared for our safety or personnel items left in the condo or inside our vehicle unlike other carribean islands. Michelle made all the arrangements and Donald was waiting at the airport upon our arrival. Thanks to Michelle and Tim for making our stay so perfect in every way, if at any time we had a question or needed something they were just a email away and answered promptly. Tim has outdone himself remodeling the condo it is absolutely beautiful in every aspect, the beds are more comfortable than the westin heavenly beds and the living room and outdoor furniture are also very comfortable he has spared no expense. The kitchen has everything you could need for food preparation including a juicer. Where on this island are you going to find AC in every room........not many my friend, and this was a wonderful treat after a long day diving,snorkling,and hanging at the beach. The condo has a dive locker with a hanging rod for your BC and plenty of storage for dive gear. We found a food truck cactus blue and kite city at donkey beach near the airport both had wonderful burgers/fish sandwiches with bean bag chairs on the beach. A local told us of a man that sold fish out near the ball field so we made our way over there several times wonderful fresh fish for a very cheap price we purchased 3 lbs of grouper cleaned for 9 dollars, baracuda, snapper, and trigger fish all fresh from the boat and delicious. Also dont miss the distillery in Rincon, the donkey sanctuary, salt pier and watch for the pink flamingos. Favorite dive spots 1,000 steps - tolo - karpata - alice in wonderland - and salt pier. If you would like to take a evening sail with drift snorkle/meal/drinks contact Wim at COMPASS SAIL you will not be disapointed and if your lucky you will be served dolfins swimming along side the sail boat for desert. We love everything about bonaire and plan to return many times in the future we will look no further for a place to stay this place has everything. Thanks for sharing your beautiful condo.....BON BINI
until next time. You will find a set of fins,snorkle, and mask left behind along with a 4x8 tarp for anyone whom might need to use them enjoy.... as one takes memories from the island one should always leave a little something behind for others to enjoy.
We stayed in the condo for one week in August. The location couldn't be better. We walked to town for shopping and restaurants every night. We didn't need the car except for driving to dive spots and restaurants outside of town. The private parking lot is great with a locked dive locker steps away for your gear to dry. The interior of the condo is beautiful, very well decorated and equipped. There is air conditioning in every room which was nice to come home to after a hot day at the beach. The care taker of the unit, Don was extremely friendly and helpful. The one thing I can think of that would make this condo an absolute 5 star is a telephone that will allow you to make local calls. My cell phone did not work on the island and we assumed there would be a land line in the condo, but there wasn't. We couldn't make any calls to Don, nor make dinner reservations; that would have been nice. Also remember to bring an alarm clock, as there are no clocks in the condo. On vacation normally who cares, but we had to get up for diving every morning so an alarm clock would have been nice. Overall we would definitely stay at the condo again and may. We are thinking of more of a family trip next time and the condo would work well. You can't beat the location and value.
