Amazing. My go to next time we’re in Bonaire
Wonderful experience. The property shows nice attention to detail. We are divers. The property has convenient outdoor gear storage and a rinse tank so that you don’t have to go inside. The house reef is nice. The snorkelers enjoyed eels and scorpion fish right on the wall. There is a dive shop (Belmar) that I highly recommend right down the street for boat dives to Klein.
We transitioned from another property so we were there early and the property manager was available to allow us to drop our luggage in the garage so that we did not have to watch the rental trucks (AB Rental) we had for diving while we went to town for lunch. Because we had been there for a week prior it was nice to have a washing machine available for laundry. There was even a clothes line for wet clothes after diving.
It was the first time we stayed on the South side of the island. My new preference for dive entries. Also, there was a nice dining option in walking distance at the Delfins Resort that was excellent. They have a beach and a pool option for a fee for non divers interested in a day of beach lounging ($15)
I hesitate to let the word out because I want it to be available when we go next time but this place is Highly recommended.
We had a wonderful time! The property was beautiful and in a great location!
Great location and property. Super for a family vacation. Mathew (owner) could not have been more helpful. Picked us up at airport and delivered us as well. Overall top notch!!
Family Dive Trip
The Pelicans Nest is a wonderful place to stay. The kitchen is fully stocked. There is a storage room adjacent to the kitchen with and extra refrigerator which is great for extra beverages. The house has inside and outside living and dining areas. There are 4 nice size bedrooms. Three bedrooms hav en-suite restrooms. The 4th bedroom shares the hall bath. Three bedrooms have some ocean view. All rooms have nice ceiling fans. The high powered fans are also on the patio which makes it an enjoyable space. The backyard is close to perfect. The dive locker is very nice, complete with rinse tank and a clothesline The sunbathing and Oceanside seating top off this wonderful home. Great spot to see a green flash
This was the second time we rented the house. As it is, this is a recommendation. A very comfortable spacious house, clean, in good repair, direct access to the sea and nice people!
We will return for a third time.
