This apartment is really a house!
This is a new house built about 5 years ago on the property of the owners who live in a house next to this one. It is modern and has a full kitchen, two bedrooms(very new and clean matresses! with air conditioning), bathroom with shower. The living room (TV and internet) is part of the kitchen. It is situated on the fenced in property so that you would never know you are sharing the lot with the owners Eadgar and Astrid. Speaking of Eadgar and Astrid you will not find a nicer couple on all of Bonaire. Eadgar met us at the airport at 9pm at night with a smile and no complaints and took us home to the house which they had already stocked with some groceries so we could have a snack and breakfast the next morning! Throughout our trip of 10 days they not only were supportive and responsive to our every need but also became our friends. Now more about this house. The inside is all new and wonderful but the house also has a front porch on which to greet the morning sun and see the morning flight of 100 or so green and yellow parrots fly from their roost trees to where ever it is they go during the day. But wait, there is also a back door to the house which has a beautiful shaded yard with clothes lines in the trees and an outside shower as well. If you are snorklers or divers they also have large tubs and a hose to rinse all you gear in and a place to hang up your wet suits with hangers included. Astrid has planted many wonderful things in the yard and due to trees and plants you feel as if you are the only one on the lot! Eadgar and Astrid are very respectful of your privacy and coordinate all cleaning and maintenance to when you always have your house to yourself if you so wish. As for security the house does lock up securely, there is a safe in the bedroom but the neighborhood is nice and we felt very secure there. The house is about 10 minutes from the downtown and very easy to find being just a few blocks off the mainroad and beach. Most of our best snorkeling was conducted just a few minutes from the house and very nice restaurants were also numerous within minutes of it as well. When we return to Bonaire there is now where else we would consider staying than with Eadgar and Astrid. Out of 5 Caribbean trips these are the best accommodations I have experiences when you balance value, quality, privacy, and service. Thank you Eadgar and Astrid for a wonderful vacation! Dean, Jennifer, and Brittney
