About Paradise Rentals Bonaire
Rob Laurant and Zwanet Kooij are the property managers of this vacation rental, the owners are a great couple from the US who chose us to manage his Bonaire residence, to care for it and receive some revenue as well. They know how to enjoy life and love the island of Bonaire, and they have been our valued client for many years and enjoys using their home away from home regularly. The picture shows me (Zwanet) kitesurfing - my biggest passion and favorite pass time on this lovely island. I moved to Bonaire in 2001. Rob enjoys touring the island and diving. He moved to Bonaire in 2000. We both live here full time together with our significant others, who have also been on Bonaire for many years. We both have been working at Paradise Rentals since 2005, this property management company is part of RE/MAX Paradise Homes, the local real estate office. We have loads of Bonaire know-how and we look forward to welcoming you to this lovely home; where you can enjoy a carefree stay!

We LOVE this place!!!
This is our 5th year staying in this house, and as soon as we can we'll book for next year. This place has everything we need and want for a comfortable vacation - a big, comfy king bed, a screened in back porch for breezy bugfree evenings, a kitchen filled with everything you might want for vacation style cooking, and the washing machine is a HUGE plus. The front porch, with views of Lac Bay and the flowering plants in the front garden, is the perfect place for a morning cup of coffee. Haven't even checked out the cable tv because there's so much else to do on this magical island. The management has always been very responsive to any questions or issues we had. Located about a mile to the windsurfing beach at Jibe City. Be sure to check out the restaurant at Lacbaai, just a few hundred yards away from the casita, for one of the best lunch experiences on the island.
Casita 2 is a Relaxing Joy with Many Extras
My husband, who is a windsurfer, and I stayed at Casita 2 at the end of March and we were very pleased with the property. It is on Lac Bay, a 3 minute drive away from the windsurfing area, so it is very easy to go back and forth - either to eat, change, or pick up the things you forgot. You can also walk to the windsurfing area in 15-20 minutes if you choose. The part of the bay it sits on is not very swimmable, but it provides a lovely view and a great breeze.There is a nice area to sit out in front of the Casita, and a hose for washing your diving/snorkeling equipment.
Inside, the living area is utilitarian -not much furniture, but just what you need. The kitchenette has a refrigerator, stove, and a clothes washer as well as small appliances including a toaster and a blender. (Tip1: don't tip the blender upside down without the cover on to pour it out or the Ninja blades will fall out and get you! Tip 2: use google translate to decipher the Dutch controls on the washer.)
The bedroom had a very comfortable kingsize bed, and plenty of storage in a bureau and closet. There is a large screened patio with a picnic table out through the bedroom in the back. The bedroom is air conditioned and there are ceiling fans in the apartment as well.
What was really great about the apartment was all the extras the owners generously provided including big fluffy beach towels, extra sheets, grocery bags, an inflatable paddleboard, and bicycles (but you will need to be tall to ride them.) There was also reliable internet access and cable television and a music system.
The Casitas are a 10 minute drive from Kralendijk, and in a remote area, so you can't go walking outside at night. But you can sit outside and enjoy the stars, the breeze, and the "wild" donkeys that come to visit.
As another added bonus, there is a good restaurant next door as well. We would stay there again if we ever get the chance, and we recommend it to everyone who wants to be near Lac Bay (which, by the way, also has some of the best snorkeling on the island.) Thanks for the great stay!
Lac Bay is on the South East end of Bonaire, offering what's considered by some to be the best windsurfing spot in Bonaire - Sorobon. Sorobon Beach with it's windsurf places and restaurants are within a few minutes distance of these lovely casitas
