Convenient, safe and comfortable
My husband and I along with our 24 year old daughter enjoyed a week in this unit in March 2019. It was a spacious unit and has a most comfortable outdoor sitting area where we chose to enjoy all of our time when we were at the unit (and not diving).
The location is perfect for traveling the North end or the South end, and it was very convenient for us to swap tanks with our chosen AB Car Rental and Dive service. This was our second time on the island, and it was perfection for location for all services and the ability to visit the town area.
I brought two suitcases of fresh, frozen and pantry food items because we prefer to prepare most of our meals, and the food choices are either expensive or few. There was most everything needed in the kitchen minus American measuring cups/spoons. Google assisted in my measuring by using the one large metric cup.
The beds are comfortable, but the pillows are MOUNTAINS and very uncomfortable.
There isn't a dive locker made available for this unit, so hauling the gear around to the patio and having to bring it in each night is a bother and inconvenient, but this doesn't ruin the trip; just makes it inconvenient (based on a previous experience). I would still choose to rebook this same unit.
The air conditioner in each room is efficient, and there is a ceiling fan in each room as well. A large floor fan is available for the kitchen area, and that was a nice addition.
Wish I was still there and not at home writing this review!
Caveat: Review arrival information prior to arriving on Bonaire. I failed to make contact the day before we left, and there wasn't an email or any notification that day we arrived. I had to turn on my phone service when collecting our luggage at the airport to send a message about garnering access. There was a taxi driver with our name on a placard, and he did give me keys to the apartment. I asked for an address, and he didn't have it; he said the car rental place would give me that information. When I asked, they didn't have a clue. There weren't any answers to my messages, so we sent off on a quest to find the complex. Fortunately there was a photo of the outside of the complex which gave me an indication for what to look. Once we got inside the gate, we had to figure out which unit it was. Fortunately we again were able to go by photos of the outside seating area to determine the unit. I think this was an exception to the norm, but it was frustrating & disappointing.
Beautiful cozy apartment that felt like home!
We stayed at this apartment for about two weeks and we loved it! Check in and check out were easy, the beds were very comfortable, the rooms were a great size with air conditioning, and the outdoor living area was just perfect. We had breakfast outside one morning while watching a pod of dolphins swimming in the ocean. There are a lot of mosquitoes in Bonaire so we picked up a citronella candle for the outdoor space in the evenings.
Rob and Zwanet were great with answering our questions and greeting us when we arrived. Our one area for improvement would be that we did not get access to one of the dive lockers. That would have been more convenient than keeping our tanks and gear on the patio.
The location was great as well, right on the waterfront within walking distance to downtown. We'd definitely stay here again!
Amazing Week in Bonaire and a Fantastic Location!
This location was perfect for us. We were close enough to town to walk to dinner, gelato and shopping! But it was also far enough to not feel overrun with cruise ship tourists. The condo was spacious and equipped with everything we might need. One quick stop at the grocery store and we were good to go. The one thing I would say is they need working mosquito zappers... we had to buy one. The outside lanai was huge and comfy. We spent mornings and evenings enjoying the warm weather and ocean. Both bedrooms were on suite and spacious. A/C in both rooms made it most comfortable at night to sleep. The condo complex was secure and people were friendly. The pool was nice and never crowded. I will definitely stay here again when visiting Bonaire.
Great locations . People very friendly
We had a great time. Place was beautiful.
Bonaire Dive Vacation
My wife and I stayed at the property for our dive vacation. It was a great place to stay at and we dove right from the back gate a couple of times which was fun. We were able to walk into town for evenings in town. Overall, a very nice apartment unit in a great location.
