Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

****BE SURE TO CHECK OUT OUR OTHER TWO GREAT CONDOS IN THIS SAME LOCATION, OCEANSCAPE (Listing #259956) and OCEANVISTA (Listing #321189)****

Welcome to OceanEdge 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. OceanEdge is one of 26 privately owned units located in the small, quiet, Port Bonaire Resort.

The bright, sunny 2 bedroom affords superb privacy, located on the 2nd 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 checked 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, introducing our newly acquired OceanEdge.

What makes this place so great? Be sure to read about 'Unique Benefits at this Condo' further down the page in the 'Map and Owner's Profile' section.

When you walk through the door into your condo, you will pass through the archway into an open great room that includes the kitchen, dining area, and living room. It is a spacious area with floor to ceiling full glass doors that open onto the main balcony. From almost anywhere in the room there is 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 flat panel LCD TV, Blu-ray / DVD player, and stereo with IPod docking station. Three secured WIFI connections available to you free of charge in addition to one unsecured resort connection. No worries about WIFI -- you will have a good connection.

The beautifully remodeled kitchen is loaded with all you need (really, I like to cook!). Modern fridge, built-in 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 with that gorgeous view, or at your lovely indoor dining venue. Smokey Joe grill you can take with you to the beach for a BBQ picnic.

For a special treat, light some candles, pop a bottle of wine, and dine al fresco at night on the balcony. The glow of the pool and across the dark sea, the shimmering lights of the island shore will stir your senses....just try it.

The master bedroom suite 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 32' flat screen TV with Blu-ray player . The bedroom opens through French doors onto a small balcony, with a view that will make you cry when you have to leave. Another door from the balcony 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 suite is just a gem. Two beds with memory foam toppers can be put together or kept separate. A private ensuite 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 32' flat panel TV with Blu-ray player...quiet, delightful private retreat.

OceanEdge rents either as a one bedroom or a two bedroom. If rented as a one bedroom, the second bedroom suite will be locked out. In this configuration, the condo is one bedroom, one and a half bath. The second bedroom suite is available for only $20 per person per night.

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, towels and beach towels are provided.

A transformer-based, surge-protected charging station is provided for your sensitive electronics and recharging needs.

Free WIFI (three secure connection options). Fast and reliable.

Air conditioning in each and every room, including livingroom and kitchen, ALL DOORS AND WINDOWS HAVE MOSQUITO SCREENS so whenever you wish, you can enjoy the beautiful trade winds.

PLEASE NOTE:: For safety reasons, OceanEdge is not suitable for children under age 6.

About Connie Rubek

My husband and I love the fantastic underwater world in Bonaire.

Connie Rubek purchased this condo in 2014

Why Connie Rubek chose Bonaire

Beautiful oceanfront location with gorgeous professionally maintained tropical gardens, Well maintained privately owned property. Excellent location with adjacent beach.

What makes this condo unique

* 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. TeAmo/Donkey beach/Windsock is a few steps south of your condo through a secure access gate.

* Dive shop directly next door. Stay with us for a 20% discount at Dive-Friends Bonaire on air/nitrox, shore and boat dive packages, and dive courses.

* 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)

* 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.

* 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

Pictures don't even do justice! best accommodations yet.

  • 5 of 5

My mom & I spent the past 2 weeks on Bonaire, this time in Ocean Edge.... and we couldn't be more pleased!!! The condo was absolutely perfect for us on our relaxing dive vacation! It was our 4th time on the island & by far our best trip yet.... much of that in part to our accommodations at OceanEdge :) Connie was extremely responsive, warmly welcoming us via emails, and provided thorough details about our stay in a Fedex package we received before our departure.

The property is beautifully maintained - there are workers there daily keeping the property in pristine condition. There's a gated entrance so we appreciated the extra security feeling. We *loved* that the entire unit can be air conditioned if you want (quite rare for many properties on Bonaire) & it made cooking enjoyable!!! The kitchen was SO stocked with everything you need - and we even left additional spices for future guests. We loved having meals on the covered patio overlooking the pool & water, and watching the sunset each night from the pool deck or patio was an added bonus. There are drying racks & heavy duty hangers for your dive gear. We loved the bird's nest in the parrot wall hanging on the patio - even got to see an island bird fly for the first time :) Oh yeah, the walls are such thick concrete that you never hear neighbors or outside noise inside the condo - and the airplane sounds are so minimal too (that was an even more pleasant surprise!). Such a relaxing place!

Pretty sure there's not a single thing we could think negatively about our entire stay.... it was just divine. We enjoyed our stay so much that we left Oceanopoly (an ocean-themed Monopoly game) in the TV stand so we can play it next time we return :) we cannot wait to come back to Bonaire & stay at OceanEdge again!!! February can't come soon enough.... :)

Lovely apartment on the sea

  • 5 of 5

This was one of the nicest units we've stayed in at Port Bonaire, a well managed condo complex in Belnam, the neighborhood of choice when we stay in Bonaire. Well equipped kitchen, well designed bathroom. Lots of space, comfortable setup. The owner was very responsive. When we had some trouble with the internet, it was reset very quickly. We hope to stay in this unit again.

Perfect location for a relaxing get away!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was exactly as pictured and described. The owner provided a whole packet of information on the condo and the island which came in very handy. My son and I loved hanging out at the pool or snorkeling at the beach next door while my husband dived. We had a fabulous time in Bonaire and the OceanEdge condo was perfect for our needs.

What a Clean, Diverse, and Interesting Island!

  • 5 of 5

Connie was extremely helpful from the beginning, giving explicit instructions on everything you can think of: checking into her apartment, rental cars, restaurants, and all things Bonaire. Upon arrival Mark, the caretaker, was very informative as well, and very easy to get a hold of if you have any questions that Connie didn't answer.

The apartment is as nice, or nicer, than the photographs - beautiful. The view as you walk through the front door is just like this photo, unbelievable, fantastic! The kitchen is well stocked for cooking any kind of meal, and it was really nice that they had spices, olive oil, condiments, plenty of paper towels, a new sponge for sink, dish/dishwasher detergent, etc. All you have to buy, pretty much, is the food. The water from the tap is great for drinking, unusual for an island.

The king-sized bed in the master is very comfortable, and you even have a small balcony off the bedroom with the same view as the porch.

This gated apartment complex is very quiet, peaceful, just the way my husband and I prefer. We were literally the only ones at the pool several times. Driving around the entire island, we noticed that this apartment complex is very well taken care of, and is one of the nicer on the island. There is a beach to the left, and a dive store (Dive Friends) next door to the right where Connie can get you a 20% discount. My husband dove 8 times (5 times by boat, 3 shore dives) and paid about $285 - great price! He did bring his own dive gear, only had to rent the tanks/weights.

This apartment met and exceeded all of our expectations, as did the island of Bonaire. For all of you foodies out there; not only can you find a fantastic place with a view, the food is pretty incredible for an island. Try the food truck on the beach next door, Kite City Food Truck. We can also highly recommend the following restaurants: It Rains Fishes, Ingredients, and At Sea - the view at Ingredients was fantastic, and you have to try the Parmesan Truffle Pasta that they serve right at your table.

Take a day and visit the Washington Slagbaai National Park, you will not regret it, what an adventure! Keep in mind that you have to have a jeep or truck to get through the park.

As the island has more than 80 dive sites, and my husband only got to visit 8, I believe we will be returning to this wonderful, beautiful, diverse island again in the future.

Nice condo

  • 4 of 5

Unfortunate construction directly across the street (jackhammers all day at the airport directly across the street). Add to that the remodeling work? in A701 (an adjacent unit) that began each morning at 0800 and that noise gets old fast. I thought I was on vacation?

Otherwise the condo was nice, had everything necessary, and an easy-to-work-with owner. Great snorkeling at both sides of the channel. Convenient to town and all points north and south.

Owner's Response: As one who really enjoys a peaceful, quiet vacation myself, I am especially sympathetic and truly sorry for the construction noise disturbance you experienced. In a property of privately owned units, like ours, occasionally an owner has some remodeling work done in their unit. I wish you had let me know about it during your stay so I could have tried to get some relief for you. Of course any construction projects outside our property are beyond any hope for me to affect, but within the property I could have at least contacted the owner and asked them to try to manage the noisy part of the work later in the day. It really is a very infrequent occurrence, and with that in mind, I hope you will consider coming back in the future.

Absolutely outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was in excellent shape, clean, and very comfortable. If I could give it six stars I would. It is incredibly convenient to the airport and to good snorkeling. You can walk across the street to the condo from the airport, change to a swim gear and be snorkeling in beautiful coral reefs 10 minutes after you get your luggage. The directions provided by the owner, Connie, are the best we have ever had for any rental. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Map

Car: recommended

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. TeAmo/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.
