New (2008), luxurious,spacious, groudfloor,beachfront apartment,located on a corner, with a swimming pool and spa and a spectacular view of the ocean and sunset, often dolphins swim by in the early morning. The building has only 10 condos.Each condo has an intercom/video system to control acces to the building. Our apartment is very safe, extra locks on windows and sliding doors, bars on small bathroom windows to guard your safety.
The interior is beautifully decorated and outside on the porch, 'al fresco' dining. The beds are of hotel quality and 2.00 meters long.
Swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving can be done right from your own beach with very easy acces into the water. There's an outside fresh water douche and rinse tank + locker for diving gear. From every corner you'll see the Caribbean sea with its beautiful turquoise and deep velvet blue colors.Flamingo's very often fly over.
The condo is located in an exclusive neighborhood with prestigious villas, couple of minutes from Kralendijk with a lot of lovely restaurants.
We (Carla, my husband Rody and two sons Michael and Alexander)have been coming to Bonaire since 1993, have rented apartments and houses all over Bonaire, we found Belnem the best place to be, calm and close to the airport and Kralendijk. Also very close to the windsurfing beach, where my sons go every day. more, it's heaven. It's built in a way to insure you're privacy.
Carla Admiraal purchased this condo in 2008
The reason we bought this apartment is the location, superb view, directly on the sea and our own beach! Which is rare on Bonaire, so very easy access in the sea. It's located on the ground floor, windside, which was a must for us, we slide the doors open every morning, step outside and walk directly to the sea....we want nothing
The beach is right in front of the condo which is unique on Bonaire
We made it back home to St. Croix a couple of hours ago after a wonderful vacation at your condo. It is a beautiful place in a great location and the photos provide an accurate representation of the unit. We rode by a number of other places that we were considering and we made the best decision without a doubt. Your housekeeper left a cell phone for us to use (which was very convenient) and my wife used it a couple of times for a few minutes to check on her mother. If you send us a feedback form we will be glad to fill it out. Thanks again,
The property was very convienent to airport, grocery, and town...yet far enough south to be peaceful and relaxing. The private beach is a plus, as most properties have a rock wall. The grounds appear to be maintained regularly, to include the refreshing pool. The property manager Martin was very friendly and helpful. A bottle of Champagne and h'ordeurve tray was a nice welcome upon arrival. The unit was up to date and nicely appointed, to include a full kitchen area. Queen beds are made up of two twin mattresses pushed together and were a bit thin/ firm for our liking. However, the bedroom AC worked very well and made sleeping pleasant. Bathrooms are large and can easily accommodate two people getting ready and or showering at the same time. Wifi service was excellent. The property is very secure, to include the large common dive locker. Parking is more than adequate and we had no issues with anyone tampering with our rental vehicle. We would recommend Bellevue for those looking for a really tasteful, secure, and well appointed ocean front property.
This was our first trip to Bonaire. The condo was easy to find, as is everything on the island, and Martin met us with keys and went over any instructions we may need. He also had laid out a very nice plate of hors d'oeuvres and a couple of cold beers in the refrigerator. The condo is on the ground floor making the entire outdoor space feel like yours. Great view, beach and dive spot right there at the condo. Convenient outdoor shower and rinse tanks with locked area for your dive gear.
Great condo for our first trip to Bonaire. Carla was extremely helpful and immediately responsive. She knows the island and has good tips. Condo is exactly as described and close to everything. Some transactions were in cash, but that seems to be the norm in Bonaire. Diving right off the beach was as good as any of the designated sites. Apparently a lot of petty theft all over the island, but we were cautious and had no issues. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
The Bellevue #1 condo worked out great for us. It was comfortable and convenient. The location is within a few kilometers to grocery stores, the downtown area, and the airport. Everything in the condo worked great and the kitchen was nicely equipped. We found the condo to be very clean and quite comfortable. We especially enjoyed the shore diving of Bonaire. The house reef right off the excellent beach at Bellevue was a great benefit. The reef is in excellent condition and as good as if not better than many other dive site we visited on Bonaire. It was nice to have the whole reef to ourselves. It also made for any easy last dive of the day. The rinse tub and scuba locker was very conveniently located, just steps away from this unit. We highly recommend your rental unit to anyone visiting Bonaire.
This was our first trip to Bonaire. We just got home today and we are already excited about going back!!! The Island is amazing. Bellevue is a great location, close to the airport, town, grocery stores (highly recommend Van Den Tweel) and restaurants. The view there, even from the first floor, is amazing. The sunsets, WOW!!!! Every morning we sat outside with our coffee and every evening we sat outside with our wine. The condo has an amazing breeze to keep it cool. The property itself is very well maintained. The master bathroom is very nice.The kitchen has everything you need. When we got there, there was some eggs, bread, juice, milk and a few other things for a nice breakfast the next morning. Carla is always quick to respond. It's nice to have the pool right outside your front door and the ocean just steps away. I highly recommend.
We had a great stay at Bellevue No. 1 over Christmas and New Year's. The condo and the location worked out well for our family of four divers. The condo was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. We loved having our own kitchen (where all the basics were provided) and eating outside on the porch with the amazing ocean view. The condo was very clean and was even cleaned once for us during our stay.
We found the condo's little beach and the diving off of it a definite plus. We were in Bonaire to dive and we did a lot of diving. We did not find much beach on the island and we did not find a lot of real easy shore entries. This was an easy entry and we did a couple of dives off the back of our condo. Someone else staying at the complex said that this was the third best dive site on the island. I don't know if that's the case, but it was equally great diving to many other sites we did. And some of our party also did some night dives right from the condo, which was very, very convenient. And, again, the beach entry was really nice.
We liked the first floor location. We had easy access to the dive locker and less overall schlepping being on the first floor. And the condo opens right to the pool and the pool deck. I guess you could get some loud pool people but that didn't happen while we were there. And the pool is a wading pool and a plunge pool; not really a hanging out pool. For us, we liked being able to walk right off our porch and be at the pool and deck and the beach.
Communication with the owner Carla was excellent. She responded quickly to my e-mails and provided us with everything we needed to know. We also appreciated how the Management on island, with this particular unit worked, getting a key from Martin at a nearby Hotel. It was good to have someone very nearby you could ask questions of if needed (we didn't really need to--but it was still nice to have a name and a face nearby if you needed a little help).
We will definitely return to Bellevue no. 1. Thanks Carla!
