OCEANSCAPE BONAIRE - - OCEANFRONT CONDO WITH INCREDIBLE VIEW

Bonaire Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-3)

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 street 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 just steps away from your door, 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, just next door, where you will find boat rental, water sports, tennis and restaurants. We don't even rent a car when we arrive. 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)

* Second floor and the additional sense of security it brings, not to mention the enhanced view.

* Sunny, tropical décor 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.

* Beautiful tropical gardens full of butterflies and songbirds surround the small, peaceful complex of 26 units.

When you open the door from your private stairway, you will turn through the archway into an open great room that includes the kitchen and living room which opens through a floor to ceiling glass wall onto the balcony. The vaulted ceiling adds an open, airy feel. Tropical décor puts you in the mood for your restful vacation.

There is an electronic security alarm system on the condo for your peace of mind.

The living room area includes a sofa sleeper and 40' flat panel LCD TV, Blu-ray / DVD player, and stereo with IPod docking station. A secured DSL line to use with provided Ethernet cable or wireless with the access code we will provide to you.

The kitchen is fully equipped (really, I like to cook!) with fridge, cook top, microwave/convection/grill oven, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, blender and electric kettle. The granite countertops offer plenty of workspace if you feel like cooking and enjoying a meal on the privacy of your own balcony. You will also have a Smokey Joe grill if you want to BBQ.

The toilet and bath/shower are separated into two different rooms, each with its own vanity, as is common in European style. This is nice in case you are utilizing the sofa sleeper. The bathroom and toilet are separate from each other, and both are accessible without going into the bedroom.

The bedroom has a comfy queen-size bed, plenty of fluffy pillows, a nice sized closet and a 27' TV. French doors open onto a small balcony overlooking the garden. On this balcony are two hanging rods and 4 heavy duty dive equipment hangers for securely drying your gear.

A safe is available in the condo for your use.

And finally, off the large side balcony (yes, there are three!) there is a laundry room with a washing machine and a drying rack.

Two beach chairs and a cooler are provided.

Linens and towels are provided.

There is air conditioning throughout, but all doors and windows have mosquito screens so you can enjoy the beautiful trade winds if you wish.

Not suitable for children under 6 yrs.

My husband and I love the beautiful underwater world surrounding Bonaire.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2008

Private location at the end of the building, gorgeous oceanfront setting, superb diving and snorkeling right in front, beach a few steps away, lovely well cared for complex with beautiful tropical gardens and large pool. Fabulous, convenient location.

There are so many great things about our place. You will enjoy mid-island convenience to everything. With a Dive-Friends dive-shop at the end of our building, you can dive out front at two fabulous dive sites without ever leaving the property, or there are boat dives leaving from our dock each morning and afternoon. Gorgeous views. Exceptional convenience to the airport. You could even skip car rental for several days and save money. You can literally walk (a short walk at that) across the road to the airport. We do it all the time. And don't worry about airport noise. Due to the orientation of the single runway and the infrequent flight schedule, it truly is not a problem at our place at all.

Excellant Vacation!

The condo was immaculate. The view from the patio was even better than the pictures. The location was wonderful (across from the airport, close to the southern dive sites, not far from town, laundry or grocery store). The property is well taken care of and the manager is always available and willing to help with questions/information. The information provided by the owner prior to arrival is very useful and complete.

Wonderful vacation condo

We stayed at OceanScape for two weeks (as we had in 2012.) We enjoyed a lovely tastefully furnished (and most importantly comfortable!)1 bedroom condo in an excellent central location across from the airport.. The Port Bonaire property is very well kept and the gardens very attractive. There are plenty of lounge chairs, the pool is beautiful, I swam afternoon and evenings almost every day. We are avid snorkelers, and the central location made it nice to come "home" for lunch when changing snorkel sites (we visited 2 different sites each day.) Some of the best snorkeling is right in front of the condo across a small channel - 18 Palm; while Windsock (just around the corner) is good too. ( I saw a gorgeous spotted eagle ray there!) There are steps into the ocean providing an easy entry for snorkeling - something that is very hard to find in Bonaire! The condo looks better than the pictures (and they are goodacdcurate), the condo is clean and the bed is very confortable, there is AC in the living room as well as bedroom, though the breezes are great and there is a balcony off the bedroom for a truly flow-through breeze. There are great screens on all the windows and doors - a must have in Bonaire! Any time we weren't in the water snorkeling or at the pool swimming, or out & about, we spent on the porch! It was very interesting and peaceful to watch all the small boats, sailboats, even fish activity from this lovely location. The sunsets were beautiful too. The owners have really thought of everything to make the stay a great one from nice wine glasses, to cooking utensils and pans (I cooked a full meal every night), to the internet. We brought our computer and stayed in touch with our family as well as downloaded our picrures! We even made reservations for a snorkel sail on the Woodwind (highly recommended.) It was a wonderful vacation and we look forward to the next time.

We had such a wonderful time in Bonaire and this condo played a big part of it. OceanScape at Port Bonaire is a quality rental. The only time we heard someone was when we were out on the deck and even then it was very quiet. We never felt unsafe there, or in Bonaire in general. It was the most relaxed vacation we have ever had and we have traveled a lot. My husband said many times, " you did good", in reference to the island and OceanScape. We are low maintenance people but still like things nice and clean. Owner Connie and caretaker Mark have done a very nice job making sure that this place makes people feel comfortable. I certainly hope that we make it back to Bonaire and I would not hesitate renting from them again.

Awesome Condo in Bonaire with Great Owners!

Hopi bon!
I can't say enough good things about this condo or its owners. Connie was amazing to work with and she literally thought of everything in the documents she sends to you prior to the trip. This was our 4th trip to Bonaire and this condo is by far our favorite.

The location is perfect and don't let the thought of the airport being across the street scare you. You really don't notice the air traffic noise. KLM is the largest that comes in and they are considerate to do so at 7:30 in the evening. The runway runs parallel to the condo so the engine noise is not directed at the condo.

Okay, now the best part of Bonaire... the diving right across the boat channel from the condo is terrific. Since it's a little private, not many divers destroy the reef right in front of the condo - lots of diverse marine life. The entry and exit is easy and the condo provides a really nice fresh water rinse shower and rinse tank with hooks to dry equipment. Having Dive Friends right on site was another big plus!

The condo is just the right size and with the great cross ventilation from the screened patio doors and window, you never need to run the air! We really liked how the shower was in one room and the toliet in another with each having their own sink. The furniture was comfortable, the TV huge (just to catch a little news) and the kitchen is really well outfitted. The view from the patio was great and it's fun to see which cruise ship is in port each morning.

While we dont speak Dutch and can't even pretend that we understand Dutch, the other owners and/or guests on site were really friendly and quickly switched to English to accomodate our lack of European training. To sum it up, this condo exceeded our expectations and we won't hesitate to rent it again in the future.

Thanks Connie for a wonderful week in Diver's Paradise!! Or as they say in Papiamento, Masha danki Connie (okay, no, our Papiamento is no better than our Dutch but we are trying!)

Map

Car: recommended

Quiet resort like condo community located in the Belnem area. Within walking distance of the airport and restaurants and activities at Plaza Resort. Oceanfront with two fabulous dive/snorkel spots right in front. There is also a 1/2 mile long beach right next to the property, one of the only natural sand beaches on the island just steps away

All southern shore dives/snorkel sites start just 5 minutes down the road. Incredible kitesurfing is about 10 minutes south. You are about 7 minutes from the east side and Lac Bay, with fabulous world-class windsurfing, and about 12 - 15 minutes to the north shore dives. Car rentals and the airport are steps away across the road. It is 1.4 miles to 3 grocery stores. If you like to walk, it is 1.3 miles to the oceanfront Promenade in downtown Kralendijk.
