One of the Bari Reef's best locations. As original owners and present during the devolopment stages we were able to choose a pemimum corner unit condo in a great location that was closest to our beach and gave us a great second floor view.
This 1 bedroom - 1 bath condo has been recently remolded with a new standing shower bathroom, new furniture and new bedding. New full view screening on our corner unit 270 square foot balcony provides bright open air spaciousness and true Caribbean feel.
We purchased this unit (A2) directly form the developers who invited us to this lovely place and offered one of the premium locations at the resort and we have been enjoying vacations here with friends and family ever since.
We have just decided to rent on our own recently therefore no reviews but our condo is one of the most requested by repeat guests at the Sand Dollar.
Michael & Janine Rossi purchased this condo in 1985
We were in the right place at the right time and we were able to purchase this property during the initial devolopment stages.
Unit A2 is ideally located, a second floor corner unit expands the views and creates an island breeze so refreshing that most times you do not need air conditioning but if you do we have two new AC units which cool the entire condo. The sunsets are absolutely spectacular.
Sand Dollar's house reef, Bari Reef, is ranked number one in the Caribbean's top ten sites for variety of fish species and can be accessed from the beach directly in front of our unit. The island of Bonaire was recently designated by the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration as having the most pristine coral reefs in the Caribbean.
You have the privacy, security and views afforded by our second floor, oceanfront site
Have the services of 2 full service dive shops at your fingertips- Our friends at Bonaire Dive and Adventure which is just steps away, Dive Friends with 2 of its 4 island locations just a short drive down the street. Both offer dock/pier, guest gear storage, easy access to air, free upgrades to Nitrox, free weights and belts, rinse tanks, professional instruction, boat dives and more.

Far off the street with guest parking just across the lawn. Traffic noise is a non-issue
Central to all the island’s shore diving sites - none is more than a short drive along the coast
Far enough from the buzz of downtown Kralendijk to enjoy peace by the sea
Convenient and adjacent to banking, Anna's Between Two Buns Café, groceries, ice cream shop, spa/fitness, shopping, Eddy's and Sunset Grill restaurants are only a short walk
My husband and I rented this unit for 13 nights in February and found it to be very nice. This was our fifth trip to Bonaire, but this is the first time we rented this specific unit. The rental process was easy and the unit was exactly as described on VRBO. This resort is quiet and laid back. It's not fancy, but the friendly atmosphere and friendly people make it a great place to stay. Bonaire is our favorite Caribbean island and The Sand Dollar Resort is our favorite place to stay. There is great snorkeling right in front of the resort with easy access. There are also many other areas around the island for snorkeling right from shore; or you can go on the Woodwind for a snorkel trip out to Klein Bonaire. We will definitely be back next year!!
My partner and I have stayed in the Sand Dollar community before. It is primarily a dive resort though there are many other activities available on the island such as kayaking, caving, biking, hiking, wind surfing,etc. The unit is an older one but was clean and had new furniture and bedding. Given its location, there was a wonderful breeze coming through and we only used the ceiling fans and had no need of the bedroom air conditioner. It is close to both nearby dive shops and there are good restaurants in the vicinity as well as a reasonably supplied grocery store about 1/2 mile away. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there and highly recommend it for an active couple or single
First time visiting Bonaire and using vrbo.com. It was a last minute option for us, and we were totally surprised how quickly the owners responded and helped us make the trip happen.
The place: Wonderful – very spacious – end unit beautiful view with ocean and trees - loved the second floor and the privacy it allowed. We like a firm bed so it worked really well for us. The kitchen is a good size and we had breakfast in each day because the local favorite “2 Buns” was closed for vacation. Location to the dive shop and gear storage couldn’t be better.
Diving: Bari Reef is right outside for unlimited shore diving. Dive Friends was friendly and very easy to work with. They signed us up right when we arrived the first day so all we needed to do the next day was a quick buoyancy check and off we were shore diving. We loved the easy access to private storage for our gear and the 24/7 access to tanks. We dove many sites north and south of the island and visited 4 out of their 5 dive locations and all of them were friendly and quick to accommodate our needs. Their Hamlet Oasis location right down the road has a drive up option that we liked after a long day of shore diving.
Town: Town was close and an easy quick drive. We enjoyed the local delis in town – “Deli Delicious” and “Boudoir”. There are many options for food in town.
We enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar A2 condo. The condo is well kept and comfortable, with a wonderful view of the water. The property was accurately represented in the listing. Several restaurants and shops are a short distance from the condo. The owner was very helpful in assisting our rental. The on site dive shop, Dive Friends Bonaire was very convenient and a wonderful source of info for diving on Bonaire. We recommend this property and would not hesitate to rent again.
We are already booked to come back in December. Perfect for divers. Great for anyone else.
Everything worked. Had one problem with the lock (Salt air is hard on them) and SD fixed it right away,.
