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 loft that sleeps 2 more) 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!
Why Bonaire? : 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 be active, but we also love to 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.
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, accessible thru a secure access gate.
Why this location?: ***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.
