|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Welcome to OceanVista Bonaire! An absolutely stunning view and fabulous accommodation awaits you. You will marvel at the view over the beautiful turquoise and blue sea, the quaint seaport of Kralendijk, the quiet secluded island of Klein Bonaire, and the northern vista to scenic and rugged Washington Slagbaai National Park. OceanVista is one of 4 penthouse units located in the small, quiet, Port Bonaire Resort.
The bright, sunny 2 bedroom (plus) affords superb privacy, located on the top floor of the Dutch-styled building. There is nothing quite like relaxing on the balcony after a long day of diving or snorkeling. 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. During several visits we searched for the perfect place, and finally found it. We bought our little gem, OceanScape Bonaire, in early 2008, and in late summer 2010 we could not resist the opportunity to purchase OceanVista, our fabulous penthouse. And now announcing OceanEdge, our beautiful one or two bedroom (can be configured either way).

When you walk through the door into your condo, you will pass through the archway into an open great room that includes the kitchen and living room, a spacious area with a 20 ft. vaulted ceiling adding an open, airy feeling and from almost anywhere in the room, a broad sweeping view across the sea. New,tasteful 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 new Caribbean contemporary furnishings, a 37' 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 loaded with all you need (really, I like to cook!). Full-size fridge, oven and ceramic cook top, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, blender and electric kettle. We even provide a crockpot! Granite countertops offer plenty of workspace if you feel like cooking and enjoying a meal on the privacy of your own balcony. Smokey Joe grill if you want to BBQ.
Dining on the balcony on the large teak table is such a treat! Whatever you have prepared, it can't taste bad with THIS view. If you wish to dine inside you have a nice kitchen bar and a small bistro table to suit your needs or mood at the time. For a special treat, light some candles and dine al fresco at night on the balcony. The glow of the pool and the shimmering lights of Kralendijk (add a bottle of wine) will stir your senses....just try it.
The master bedroom has a private bath with large walk-in shower. Memory foam-topped, comfy king-size bed, plenty of fluffy pillows, nice sized closet and dresser and 37' flat screen TV with Blu-ray player . This bedroom, with a view from the bedroom windows that will make you cry when you have to leave, opens onto the large, main balcony overlooking the pool, and a magnificent view of the sea, Klein Bonaire, and the entire western shoreline of the island.
The second bedroom is just a gem. Two beds with memory foam toppers can be put together or kept separate. A private bath, roomy closet and large dresser, individually controlled a/c unit (or turn it off and open the window for a fabulous trade wind to caress your tropical dreams), and Sony Bravia 32' flat panel TV with Blu-ray player...quiet, delightful private retreat.
Upstairs, a roomy sleeping loft with two VERY comfortable twin beds that can be separated or put together and your own a/c to control as you wish. The loft can share the bath/toilet with the 2nd bedroom with a unique door and lock arrangement that maintains privacy for both parties.
A safe is available in the condo for your use.
Off the stairside balcony there is a laundry room with a washing machine and a drying rack.
Four beach chairs and a cooler provided.
Linens and towels provided.

My husband and I love the fantastic underwater world in Bonaire.
Connie Rubek purchased this condo in 2010
* Snorkel and dive directly in front of the condo. Easy ladder entry for you to use, steps away from your door, very short swim to 18th Palm or Windsock dive sites. Spectacular snorkeling and diving right in front of you. Dockside rinse tank, freshwater shower, and hanging hooks.
* Walk to 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.
* 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. 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.(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)
* Top 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.
* Large swimming pool right on the oceanfront. Plenty of lounge chairs.
* Beautiful tropical gardens full of butterflies and songbirds surround the small, peaceful complex of 26 units
Hey Connie- your place is great and immaculately clean. really appreciate that....thanks again for renting us your wonderful oceanvista. Julia and I had a wonderful time, only went too fast as usual.
Can't beat this location!!! We really felt it was central to getting everywhere. After flying in it was so nice to literally be on the beach within 10 minutes of picking up our baggage. The owner is terrific with giving you all sorts of information that comes via the mail a couple weeks before your departure to make your trip nicer, everything from where to snorkel, how to use the free wifi, to which restaurants she recommends. My only small complaint was the kitchen felt a bit dated and was tiny but in the end it served our purpose of preparing breakfast and some lunches at home while eating out for dinners! We also have to rave about the snorkeling that exists just outside the unit. Head across the channel and over to the right and you'll see everything you'd find anywhere else on this island. Thanks again to Connie for sharing this piece of heaven with us!
We absolutely loved this rental for the week we were in Bonaire. The location being so close to the airport was super convenient. The condo itself is so open and plenty of room! We spend soooo much time out on the patio as there is a very nice dining table and chairs and the view is unbeatable. In fact, if we were at the condo we were mostly out there. The pool is very nice too and never crowded. The dive shop was friendly and very lenient on allowing you to take multiple tanks at 1 time. I just can't see enough great things about this place. Also the communication with the owner was so easy and smooth, I highly recommend!!!!!!
Our stay here was wonderful, could not have asked for a better place to stay at on this island. Have stayed at another well know place, but this was far superior. Location is outstanding , located right next to the airport (no taxi needed, just walk across the parking lot) and your there. If you are diving, you are you have the islands major dive shope right at your condos. They are top notch and treat you great. Boat is located right here if you want to make some boat dives. I am a diver and have traveled to many places through my 50+ years of diving. You will find Bonaire one of the best diving locations in the Carribean, and to top that you also have a wonderful, clean and well equipped place to stay at. The owner has thought of everthing you might need to make your stay enjoyable and worry free. I look forward to my return, and another enjoyable stay. I will be telling all my dive friends about the condo. On a scale of 1 to 10 I would definitely give it a 12. Thanks for a delightful stay.
Beautiful place right on a snorkelling site. Very clean and well maintained. You indeed actually walk across from the airport, yet hardly hear the planes. Going into town and to different spectacular snorkelling spots along the coast, you would need a car. Grocery shopping is on the way to the (small) town. We spent 5 days and really liked it. Bring some mosquito spray for dusk time. The balcony is wonderful and I spent many a happy hour there, reading and gazing out over the ocean! Very easy contact and quick responses with owner. We had great dinners at Wil's bar and (top restaurant) Appetite.
Overall the condo was great but the second bedroom was akward with several doors to hall and toilet/shower rooms. Very clean and lots of dishes, etc and a lot of spices, etc in the cupboards for use. Grocery store was walkable once we found our way around and it was walkable to town. The walking had to be done around the heat of the day. Excellent location across from airport and not too noisy at all. Beach next door excellent
I feel like we hit the jackpot when we arrived at this little slice of heaven in Bonaire. Our experience from start to end was incredible. The communication was very quick and extremely helpful to those who are new to Bonaire as we were. A welcome binder arrived prior and it was our guide the entire stay. The condo itself has everything you need and I love that you dont have to start from scratch but replace what you use. The pool was a huge highlight and is even lit up at night. You can snorkel and dive right off the deck. The owners have done so much to make this feel like a home away from home. The beds too were extremely comfy. It is not walking distance to anything except the airport - but with a rental car company just steps away - everything is convenient to get to with the island being so small. Great grocercy store just a few minutes away, Jibe City just a quick 5-10 min away, downtown Kralendijk about 10 min away too.
The listing is accurate regarding layout, amenities and location. The property was clean and well maintained. The owners provide fantastic customer service - even when my flight was delayed she wrote to give me alternate flights without even asking!
I will definitley stay here again and bring my friends with me.
If you are making the trip to Bonaire, you probably already know the main activities are scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, windsurfing, kite surfing, fishing, biking, and hiking. Port Bonaire is constructed at the edge of a channel with a protective jetty in front, so entry to the sea is always calm and easy. Donkey Beach/Windsock, just next door, is one of the most popular beaches on the island. It can be accessed through a secure gate with coded lock. By making arrangements with Dive Friends (we can put you in touch with them directly), depending on what time you arrive on island, you very well may be able to do your dive orientation the same day your arrive.
