About the property

Private Parking, Outside Grill & Tables, Sunbeds, Hammocks, Dunk Tank & Lockers

Treasure By The Sea, on the quiet and tranquil Island of Bonaire, is a private residence featuring 3 apartments that is nestled peacefully in Kralendijk between Kaya Playa Lechi & Kaya Gobernador Nicholaas Debrot. Kas di Amor is the end unit that features an elegantly furnished 2 bedroom apartment. The shimmering crystal clear ocean is only 50 meters away. Conveniently located 1 block away from Dive Friends Yellow Submarine and a few minutes stroll from all the wonderful cafes, restaurants and shops. Open the back doors, windows and front sliding door to let the trade winds keep you comfortable. Fans and A/C will cool you down if you like it much cooler than the consistent tropical climate. Most people feel that having the natural island breeze gently caressing the skin is more pleasant. Let the purr of the nearby waves soothe your ears as you relax on the shaded cabanas and lounge chairs. Having a functional kitchen allows you to enjoy dining in or al fresco on the patio. Snip some homegrown herbs that are thriving in our garden to make delectable meals. Adjoining the kitchen space is the living room, which provides a comfortable and sociable space that has ample seating. Both the kitchen and living area benefit from stunning high ceilings, tiled floors and large sliding doors that provide abundant natural light. This is the ideal getaway for singles, couples or travel companions who prefer private and personal accommodations that reflects the Caribbean style over hotels and resorts.

Private or street side parking allows safe and easy access to load your groceries and dive equipment in & out of your vehicle. Privacy walls and cacti fence enclose the property. Internet connection and cable tv are included. Washing machine and a cloths line allows you to pack less.

Bonaire, having a consistent tropical climate year round, makes this the ideal vacation spot where ever you are coming from. Splendid panoramic views of the colorful wildlife both above and below the sea. To explore the island, we have a 2013 Nissan Navara 4 door pick or 2 150cc 2 person Scooter available for our guests to rent. You will find many people cycling, snorkeling, diving, swimming, windsurfing, kite boarding, horseback riding, boating, sailing, kayaking, water skiing, shopping, and dining. Just having the time of their lives as you should too!

About Treasure By The Sea / Su & Chris

We love shore diving & snorkeling and roaming about around the island. We found this property as a diamond in the rough and are slowly turning it into a gem! This property is being finished to an extremely high standard, providing surroundings that are both neutral and appealing with fresh paint, quality bedding, furnishings and appliances. This is the recent beginning of turning this unique property into a luxurious residence.

Treasure By The Sea / Su & Chris purchased this house in 2012

Why Treasure By The Sea / Su & Chris chose Bonaire

We loved this property the minute we saw it! The location is amazing - 1 house away from the water. It is close to town where you can walk to the shops and restaurants and far enough away for privacy.

What makes this house unique

Engage your senses! In the morning, make a cup of coffee and walk 100 feet to the water, sit on the ledge and look out into the ocean while the breeze is blowing in your hair and just enjoy the moment! Parrots sit in our trees, iguanas roam our yard and the birds sing you beautiful songs. Snorkeling in front of our house you will find many varieties of fish, eels and octopus hiding in the coral. Don't forget your camera!


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

This was our first time on Bonaire and couldn't have been more thankful for Su!! Our flight was delayed missing our car rental, and she arranged a taxi ride. We mentioned we wanted to dive, and she connected with several companies an arranged several options. We didn't know where to eat, and she made reservations for us at one of the few places open on a Sunday! From someone whose travels at work, I was beyond impressed by her customer service and willing to go above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay and time on Bonaire!

I highly recommend any of their properties!!!

Treasure by the Sea

  • 5 of 5

An all too brief stay, just 3 days at a lovely new place just steps from the water. Our hostess Sue could not have been more helpful. Our 2 bedroom one bath apartment was beautifully appointed and lots of care was spent in getting all the details just right. Both outside and in we could not have asked for more. Highly recommend it.

A very nice apartment in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

Our party was comprised of two couples who shared the apartment for eight days. The owners Chris and Su were on site and very helpful. We went snorkeling, kayaking, kite boarding and hiking while we were there. It is a short walk into town and grocery stores are nearby. We had the end apartment with a clear view to the water and local fishing dock. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable.

My wife and I had a wonderful time on our honeymoon! We had been to Bonaire several times before staying in different homes; Treasure By The Sea definitely takes first place. We wanted to be in a clean place, near the ocean and near downtown. The location is hard to beat, you can see the ocean across the street, or walk to it in one minute. Downtown is an easy 5 minute walk along the beautiful coast so you can get a drink, shop, find a restaurant or jump in the water. Diving is everywhere on the island.

Everything thing you need is available at the unit. It was very clean and felt safe. We would buy our food and cook often at the house. It was also quiet which was nice for sleeping. Plenty of room and very comfortable to relax in or sit on the porch and kick back.

And to mention the owners Su and Chris, their hospitality was first class and it made the trip for us. Very kind people who are nearby in another unit on the property and are available to help plan your trip or give awesome insight to different things to do or places to go that may not be on the regular tourist list. We will definitely be coming back at some point!

Comfy & charming digs on lovely Bonaire

  • 5 of 5

I couldn't agree more with the other positive reviews! We are also snorkelers, & love places you can just snorkel from shore, without having to take a boat to access the best sites. Bonaire is this place, & the location of Treasure by the Sea makes it easy. Su & Chris are a wealth of information, & couldn't have been more helpful & accommodating. They seem to have thought of everything imaginable to make their guests comfortable. Decor is charming & well thought-out, & both apartments are really attractive. BTW - we love the heat, & never used the A/C in the bedrooms. The lovely breezes were enough, & each room has a ceiling fan. Loved this place, & these lovely people!

Two Weeks in Snorkel Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Dear Su and Chris,

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Treasure by the Sea, Kralendijk Bonaire. Every day was a snorkel adventure and fish and underwater life was everywhere you jumped into the water. Bari Reef, Klein, 1000 steps, Salt Pier, and many many more sites abound; if you enjoy relaxing time at the beach and snorkeling, this is your paradise. From Houston, non stop flight Saturday afternoon returning Sunday morning was a plus.

Sue and Chris were very attentive and gracious hosts. They seemed to never stop working, so since you are reading this and will likely visit Bonaire, we highly recommend you stay at this property. Tell them both to take a day off (they won't) and keep enjoying the lovely property and surroundings.

The house was well kept, very clean, had enough of everything we needed, and if it was not there, Sue and Chris offered it to you. Their hard work at the property really showed off. The location was great to get to town (10 minute walk on the water), and being a small island, you could really get to anywhere in short order.

We enjoyed dining at the Argentinan steakhouse, Between Two Buns, Kite City (food truck at the airport beach), Rumba cafe to name a few. Prices were much lower than we expected. I am already having Gelato withdraw from missing Gio's downtown. Best way to enjoy a sweet treat and a cappuccino, and a bit of AC bar none.

Thank you for the bikes, the beach chairs, and your daily smiles and greetings - we really enjoyed our time on the island and recommend anyone coming to choose Treasure by the Sea.

Peter and Michelle

Shore diving at it's best! Take a boat dive or go snorkeling at Klein. Wind surfing at Lac Bay or venture a East Coast dive to see tarpon & lots of turtles. Try kite boarding by the slave huts. Drive around the island to see the salt mines, slave huts, light houses, blow holes, Indian drawings, flamingos, check out the different beaches. Spend hours going through the National Park and don't forget to feed the donkeys at the Donkey Sanctuary! Shop at Kaya Grandi, sip cocktails at the pier bar and watch the sunset as you dine.
