****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.

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.

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 Kralendijk
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

nice,quiet and well located place
we really loved our stay .good localisation. quiet place,grand appart ,and a lot of things furnished and really appreciated like spices, differents oils ,toilet paper,soap.shampoin,many things to clean and kitchen well equiped
may be the room wtih two beds ,its was better if we can join the two beds .we are two couples
we recommand the place for sure
And we loved having you! We are so disappointed we didn't earn that 5th star in your review. We do our best to accommodate any special requests from our guests. But if a guest never mentions either before or during their stay that they have a request - for example putting the two twin beds in the second bedroom suite together - then we do not have a chance to create a perfect visit, which is our goal for every guest. Always express your wishes and we will do our best!
From the process of asking for info to checking out, Connie and Vladimir were outstanding.
The condo is very well kept and the views are outstanding. Everything you need for cooking is available. For being across from the airport it is a very quiet complex. There is snorkeling right out front of the condo. You can walk on the sandy beach on the side of the complex, It is a gated community and we always felt safe. The complex is quiet and peaceful. The grounds are so beautiful. Connie sends a booklet with all the info you could possible want. She assisted us with car rental which we did with Marcolva Poppy Henriquez. He met us at the gate and away we went. No dealing with car rental long lines. You defiantly need a car. When we were at the condo we sat on the lanai and enjoyed the beautiful weather and scenery. There is a dive shop right next door and they were helpful with my husband doing a refresher course.
Thank you Connie and Vladimir. It was a pleasure meeting you and your condo was amazing.
We hope to return some day.
The VERY Best in Bonaire
Sometimes you hesitate to write a review of the place you stayed because then you know you are telling everyone about an AMAZING place that you really would like to keep to yourself. But OceanEdge is gem and a secret worth sharing because it is truly the VERY best in Bonaire!
The owners have thought of everything for you to have a comfortable stay that will make you want to come back again and again.
The decor is stunning. From your master bedroom you see the ocean and can fall asleep to the sound of the ocean. From your kitchen you look across the dining room, living room, and out to the deck where, again you have a view of the ocean. Talk about peaceful and relaxing.
The kitchen is so well stocked with everything you will need to cook as we did most of the time we did over our two weeks there.
The pool is delightful. You can be in the sun or in the shade if you like.
There is always available parking inside of a secured remote gate.
If you are a diver, Dive Friends is right next door!
We were lucky as the amazing, hospitable, and friendly owners were at the property when we were so if we had any needs they were available to assist. There is a full-time manager also at the property. We met him too and he is also very friendly and helpful.
Book this property if you are looking for the very best, relaxing, peaceful, and carefree time in Bonaire and you will be happy you did!!!!
Beautiful condo great location!
Condo is beautifully decorated and well equipped. It is rare to find quality accommodations and this unit was everything we hoped for and much more. The complex is secure and quaint. We will certainly return!
Very good place to stay
Pros: Great location and view. Generally comfortable. Good snorkeling nearby. Quiet and safe
Cons: checkout time inappropriately early. Spotty internet.
Our almost 100% (yes, not QUITE) wonderful guests are made fully aware of our 10am check-out time well in advance. Our check-out time is shown on our listing, in our rental agreement which must be agreed to before booking, and in a thorough information package sent out to each guest two weeks in advance of their stay. If a later check-out is possible, it is ALWAYS given, because checkout time is based on the arrival time of the next guest. However this time of year, it is rarely a possibility for a late check out because guests depart and arrive the same day. The people who were in the unit before this guest arrived had a 10am checkout so THESE people could get in as soon as they arrived on the island. That is how it works. This was no surprise to this guest because he stayed with us same time last year and had a 10am check-out time then as well....and he gave us a 5 star review last year. Also, interested guests (who can sense my frustration) should know that we make accommodations for guests who must check out at 10am but are departing in the afternoon by giving them access to 1) a secure storeroom where they can stow their luggage 2) showers 3) a restroom for changing clothes and all other restroom stuff (and all of those places are in the same little building) while they have 4) full access to our property and pool and oceanfront while they wait for their flight. Is there more we can do? As for internet, I was one floor above this guest the entire time he was here and, as happens on an island, maybe once or twice during his week here the internet stumbled for a 1/2 hour or so (at most!). This guest never mentioned a problem with the internet. Internet connection problems are no more frequent than that once or twice a week for a few minutes thing unless there is a user error (trying to connect to wrong network because did not read instructions in information package?)
A 4 out of 5 review is a huge disappointment for the effort and care put in to every reservation and every guest's visit with us AND for the quality of the unit that is presented when a guest arrives. Our goal is 5, and no less.
Paradise Place to Stay!!! All the comforts of home and a view to die for!!!
This is our second trip to oceans edge. Connie's communication is excellent. The conveniently locate condo is across from the airport and located a few minutes from town. The private gated community is safe and the pool overlooks the ocean. TV and wifi great for my son. The balcony table was perfect for meals or domino games at sunset. Can't wait to come back.
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.
