Welcome to OceanScape Bonaire, your beautiful Bonaire oceanfront condo! You won't believe your eyes when you experience your fabulous view. Your condo is located in the small, quiet, Port Bonaire Resort, located just across the road from the airport. It is so oceanfront, we like to say you can ''spit in the ocean'' from the balcony (but due to trade winds, it is not recommended!). The bright, sunny one bedroom condo affords superb privacy, located all the way at the end of the beautiful Dutch-styled building with a panoramic view across the ocean to Kralendijk, Klein Bonaire and the northern mountains of Washington Slaagbai Park. But just turn your head and you have the added bonus of a view across Donkey Beach and those gorgeous Bonaire sunsets to the West. That's right, since you are on the corner, you have a 270 degree view that cannot be surpassed.
There is nothing quite like relaxing on the balcony after a long day of diving or snorkeling, glass of wine in hand, to watch the sunset into the ocean. Although waking up, pouring a cup of coffee and meandering out on the balcony to see dolphins arching across the water while a cruise ship passes by to port in Kralendijk is not too bad either!
We have traveled all over the Caribbean for many years, always with the dream/goal of buying our own place on the water. We love to snorkel, hike, go boating, bicycle, and relax on the beach. When we finally ticked off Bonaire on our list of places to visit, we immediately knew we had found our second home. We searched during several visits for the perfect place, and finally found it at Port Bonaire.
What makes it so great? It had all of these things that we were looking for and even more:
*** Snorkel and dive directly in front of the condo. There is an easy ladder entry for you to use or, and it is a very short swim to 18th Palm or Windsock dive sites. Some of the most spectacular snorkeling and diving on the island is right in front of you. Dockside rinse tank, freshwater shower, and hanging hooks.
*** Walk to the beach. Donkey beach/Windsock is a few steps south of your condo through a secure access gate.
*** Dive shop on site. Dive Friends runs a full operation on site and that includes rinse area and lockers.
*** Close to the action. You are less than a 10 minute drive to the coveted south shore dive sites or windsurfing at Lac Bay, and 5 minutes to the center of Kralendijk.
*** Easy access to the airport, rental cars, grocery, and a short walk to Plaza Resort where you will find boat rental, water sports, tennis and restaurants.
And even more ....
*** Second floor and the additional sense of security it brings, not to mention the enhanced view.
*** Sunny, tropical decor and plenty of windows to open, or Air-Conditioning is available throughout.
*** Swimming pool right on the oceanfront. Plenty of lounge chairs and an outdoor shower.
*** Gated private parking
*** Beautiful tropical gardens full of butterflies and songbirds surround the small, peaceful complex of 26 units.
And check this out - - We roll our luggage across the street and get settled in, and then rent a car later when the crowds have died down at the car rental counters, or even the next day to save a few bucks. (And don't worry, the airport is not noisy here - - it is much noisier at places a little further south in Belnem due to the orientation of the single runway)
