Experience all that Bonaire has to offer in this spacious and well appointed 3 bedroom fourth floor oceanfront penthouse condo with clear views to the Caribbean Sea and Klein Bonaire.
A short walk along the water front takes you to the heart of Kralendijk, with its shops and excellent restaurants.
The nearby dive shop (Dive Friends Yellow Submarine) makes this the perfect location for underwater adventurers.
The complex has only fourteen units, allowing for the private enjoyment of the attractive grounds and large swimming pool.
Keywords: swimming pool, luxury, diving, windsurfing
Our whole family enjoys the windsurfing on Lac Bay (where the crystal clear shallow waters are friendly to all ages and skill levels), the numerous snorkelling and dive sites located along the west coast, and the excellent and affordable dining in and around Kralendijk.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2012
We stayed here with our sons (9 and 5) and my husband's parents. We spent a little more than we had originally planned, but decided it was worth the extra money to be within walking distance of downtown, have a secured parking lot, have a swimming pool, snorkel right across the boardwalk, and have a beautiful view from the balcony. We are so glad that we chose this property, it was exactly what we expected it would be. One plus was having use of the property's cell phone (a pre-pay phone), which was a perfect way for us to make arrangements with family who live on the island. We would recommend this property to family and friends who visit Bonaire on a regular basis. Our aunt and uncle who live on the island were very impressed as well, and will keep it in mind when their friends and family are asking for lodging recommendations. The owner was very prompt in responding to questions prior to our departure, and the property manager met us at the airport upon arrival. Easy check-in/check-out.
We stretched our budget a bit when we selected this rental, but we're very glad we did! The condo is beautiful, with generously-sized rooms. With 5 adults, there was plenty of room for everyone to spread out and relax. The view from the lanai is fantastic, and the breezes made it comfortable no matter the temperature. It was convenient to be within walking distance of the shops and restaurants in town. The condo is exactly as pictured (except for the lack of mosquito nets, as mentioned by another reviewer), so what you see is what you get. The owner was helpful, answering my many questions about the rental and Bonaire in general (it was our first time to the island.) Sebastiono, the property manager was waiting for us when we got to the island and met us in the early morning hours when we left for home.
One comment that has nothing to do with the condo itself: the local residents like to celebrate the New Year with LOTS of fireworks. We heard them periodically the entire week we were on the island, but the show at midnight was spectacular. Good thing the bedrooms were air conditioned, because the explosions made it was impossible to sleep with the windows open!
We LOVED this condo! We had never been to Bonaire before and we lucked out when we decided to stay here in VRBO #349300. The views from the enormous balcony were too beautiful to describe, including the sparkling see-through aqua waters and brightly-colored boats and sailboats, watching cruise ships come in, the view to downtown Krajlendik, and the awesome sunsets. It is easy walking distance to downtown for meals or shopping (approx. 1/2 mile). The elevator lands you at the private entrance inside the condo. The condo is spacious and very nice. The pictures are accurate, but the mosquito nets are no longer on the beds (we didn't have any mosquito issues). The beds were comfortable for sleeping. There is a small safe in the master bedroom. The wireless internet worked very well. The condo has a washing machine, but clothing must be dried on a foldable rack on the balcony (common for Bonaire). The balcony has a table and chairs for dining, wicker chairs and loveseats, and two reclining chaise lounges. We loved the weather and sunshine, and spent most of our "home" time on the balcony. We learned that the owner had recently purchased the condo and hadn't even been there yet. They were going in after us and would be replacing things, so no need to mention our minor negatives. The owner was responsive and great to work with, and the property manager was very friendly and helpful. It should be noted that only the bedrooms are air conditioned. The reef in front is called "Something Special". We do not dive but snorkeled many spots on the island. The reef in front was great for snorkeling, convenient, easy in and out of the water, and we saw many beautiful fish, eels, and even an octopus. This condo is great for up to 3 couples to share. Bonaire was one of the most relaxing vacations we've had in years (no golf courses on the island so my husband had to relax), but don't think there isn't a lot to do on this island. We also spent a very fun day at Lac Bay. Prepare yourself for the goat or iguana stew at Rose Inn! The islanders are very friendly. Bonaire is a well-kept secret and we hope we can go back again very soon!
Very happy nice place, the morning and night on the back open porch, the pictures don't show how beautiful the view is. We had our meals their day and night it was something my wife and i enjoyed each day. sunsets are just romantic. The only complaint was the wifi didn't work.
I would recommend to everyone. Tom the owner was easy to reach. Very happy. Good time. LOOK FOR THE FLOCK OF BIG GREEN PAROTS EVERY MORNING IN THE TREES. NITE DIVES RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET. THAT WAS FUN.
The Island is charming, the people are friendly, and the sea water is pristine. Staying at the Playa Leichi residence lets you experience all the charms of Bonaire. The condo has a huge terrace overlooking the ocean and the condo complex has a great pool where you could lounge for hours on long chairs. Playa Leichi residence is extremely secure and the neighbors who live there year round are very friendly. The condo is well equipped with all the amenities. The condo is very well situated in the city of Kralendijk; it is walking distance from the city center and the oceanfront restaurants. The property manager is ready to assist you if you require his services; he picked us up on the day of our arrival and drove us to the airport at 5:30 am on the day of our departure. We highly enjoyed our stay and will be back soon!
