Overview

Bonaire Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 1/2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A beautiful penthouse with 2 bedrooms and 2 1/2 bathrooms , a living room and kitchen /dining room and a large outdoor terrace with bar and BBQ . You will love our oceanfront condo on the boulevard of Kralendijk, within walking distance to restaurants , grocery stores and the main tourist street (Kaya Grandi).

The condo has over 1700 sqft ( 160m2) including the outdoor living spaces . You will have a shaded area to relax outside or you can choose to sunbathe on the lounge chairs . Of course, many days you may end up watching the sunset from the bar .

We have been told many times by guests :”this must be the best view and location in Bonaire “ . Please read the reviews .The penthouse has everything one can wish for : walking distance to the beach in front of the unit and to the next door diving operator and to the famous Karel's pier -Bonaire’s one and only above the water bar and restaurant.

The condo has a firsthand view of the coming and going of the yachts that visit Bonaire and the cruise ships will pass directly in front of you .The security is excellent , a gate key is needed to enter the premises and the entry door is the only door on our floor level. The property is fully airconditioned , a rarity in Bonaire , but trade winds and ceiling fans will allow comfortable sleeping without airco’s in some seasons ,also because the property is fully screened against mosquito's. when . We ourselves usually start the living area A/C after sunset and the bedroom airco's an hour before retiring . During the day we enjoy the tradewinds which make the penthouse very comfortable .

We believe this is a premier place in Bonaire and we would not trade with anyone else because each morning we enjoy the view of the turquoise waters , the beaches of Klein Bonaire across and the distant view of the mountainous area of Bonaire in the Washington Park preserve. You can also on occasion see dolphin pods pass by while sipping your morning coffee(s) .

In the evening, we enjoy a cool drink –the local Amstel beer is called “Bright” and we rate the sunsets by assigning a number of Brights . A five Bright evening as shown in the photo is the best sunset you can experience in the Caribbean. Fortunately there are many great sunsets …

Local assistance with any problems/questions during your stay and the airport reception will be provided by our very capable property managers at VanEpsPropertyManagement.

Have a great vacation.

About Augusta or Herman Amelink

We emigrated from Holland to the USA in 1968 ; one of us is Dutch , one changed to US citizenship. The family is fond of diving , so we have visited Bonaire since 1988 and after vacationing in other Caribbean diving resorts we selected Bonaire as the best choice. After we retired we purchased this condo.

Augusta or Herman Amelink purchased this condo in 2006

Why Augusta or Herman Amelink chose Bonaire

Bonaire is a mix of Dutch , American and Lt American influences . Low crime rates and friendly people were important factors for us to choose Bonaire , besides the diving.

What makes this condo unique

We walk to the town , to shopping , to restaurants . In the USA we have to drive 3 miles to the nearest store, so this location is a totally different experience . There is a parking lot for our rental car, but we don't drive every day . Relaxed living and enjoying the cultural sights and sounds of Bonaire , makes us come back 3 or 4 times a year.

Fabulous Penthouse

  • 5 of 5
The penthouse was everything I had hoped it would be plus more! It was like home away from home with the added bonus of fabulous views! Augusta and everyone from VanEps Property Management were a pleasure to work with and made the reservation, arrival and departure process smooth and worry free.
Bonaire has become my birthday destination three years running. I would love to stay at the "Nautical Nest" again next August! Danki Augusta!!

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5
During the planning stages of our trip Herman was very helpful with all the questions that I asked. The condo itself was great. It was everything that we hoped for after reading all of the previous reviews. The noise from the street was loud at times, but we adapted. Other than the IPOD docking station speakers (they were in bad shape) everything else was in fine working order. We really liked how close it was to downtown and the many restaurants. We didn't have a car the entire 2 weeks, but we did alot of walking (we had to wear off all of the Amstel Brights we consumed) so it made it much easier, especially at night. As in all of our vacations, the time went by too fast. I would not hesitate to rent this condo in the future. Thanks again Herman!

Nautical Nest is number one!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I,along with our teenage son stayed in the Nautical Nest for a week. This was our second trip to Bonaire and our 2nd time using VRBO. This condo was perfect for us in every way. The location can't be beat. It was so nice to walk to the restaurants at night and not have to worry about looking for a place to park the truck.The view is incredible and the outside space is great for watching the sunset and watching the town go by. The condo is well stocked with everything you could need and looks exactly like the photos.The on-island property manager is great and took care of any questions or problems we had.Thank You, for sharing your fabulous home with us! I hope we can book it again on a return trip.

Downtown Penthouse in Kralendijk

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed comfortably in this beautiful penthouse located in the heart of Bonaire. The views were spectacular and everything was within walking distance. You can tell alot of thought went into decorating and making this condo feel like a home away from home. The outside deck is large and we spent so much time on it overlooking the gorgeous sea, boats and of course sunsets. We had a warm welcome and good communication with the owners and the property managers. Even a welcome drink was provided! Nice touch! I would definitley stay at this beautiful, waterfront penthouse condo again.

Excellent rental in Bonaire

  • 5 of 5
Three of us spent a week at Nautico over the New Year's holiday. We loved it. The place is immaculate, had everything that we needed, fully equiped kitchen, and an extraordinary patio from which to watch the town go by and the sunsets. Food next door is equally good. The beds were comfotable and clean. Inga was very sweet and helpful. One remark: we were unable to use the AC unit in the living room, as water poured from it onto the living room floor every time we used it. We told Inga and I'm sure they fixed it. Each bedroom has its own AC unit and those worked very well. The neighbors were friendly and there was plenty of parking space for our truck. The place is a bit spendy, but we got a little discount as we booked last minute. This place is highly recommended! Note: We came through Aruba and flew from there via DAE - not recommended, their flights are cancelled all the time, according to locals and so were we both ways. Choose Insel Air instead.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a good time in Bonaire . The next time you stay please call the manager right-away , don't wait till you leave. The airco is an easy problem to solve : just a loosened drain tube.
We were pleased you chose to be our guests and we hope we can welcome you again soon. Thank you for the review.

Car: recommended

The condo is located on the Ocean Boulevard , very close to the center of Kralendijk . The small town of Kralendijk prides itself in only one over the water restaurant/bar called Karel's and it is a 3 minute walk along the ocean. Furthermore many of the best restaurants are located along this waterfront and all are walking distance . Need to buy souvenirs? The Kaya Grandi (= big street ) has many stores with all kinds of souvenirs. On days when a cruise boat is in the harbor , there are many more souvenir vendors to tempt the passengers debarking from the cruise boat .

Need groceries , you can walk it in 5 minutes but you may prefer to take the car rather than carrying back all that beer :).

Full service Dive shops are located both North and South along the Boulevard . You can store equipment overnight at these facilities so you don't have to carry it to the condo. Most divers visiting Bonaire love the shore diving experience when you can just walk in and plunge down along the wall . No need to pay for boat excursions except if you want to dive along Klein Bonaire . Since you need a car for shore diving , you can take it into the national park covering 1/2 of Bonaire : the Washington Park . The drive through the park can be interesting after a rain shower, since the roads are not paved :a 4 wheel drive car is then required.

One should also take a kayak tour through the mangrove forests ; very interesting to see the birthplace of many of the tropical fishes one can encounter on the reefs around Bonaire .

If all that sounds tiresome , the Windsurf Place on the east Coast ( a 15 minute drive ) will offer total relaxation with sun , wind , local snacks , sangria and many easy chairs to catch the sun.

A Great time can be had in Bonaire but the nightlife is minimal , no disco's , a few late-night bars but no swinging night clubs , just easy living .

Enjoy.
