About Rob Smith
We bought this unit in 2008 with plans to use as a retirement home. We completely renovated and replaced everything. The kitchen was totally redone in 2011 with all new appliances. All new lights, fans for saltwater series, paint and even door hardware. The unit also has mosquito nets on the beds if needed and mosquito curtains around the decks if needed. Every window and door has see-though black netting or screens.

Why Rob Smith chose Playa Pabou
We love Bonaire so much and spend so much time there that we moved up the hill to a bigger place. So, PLR #7 was our home and very well outfitted. Most rental units in Bonaire are used part time by owners and do not have the amenities of PLR #7. Most rental units in Bonaire have a storage room that is used by the owners to store personal belongings. With this unit the storage room will be yours to use for personal dive equipment. It is also available year round for renters, not part time.

Location, Amenities and Covenience
Playa Lechi 7 has everything that divers could want during a stay on Bonaire. A full size kitchen with everything necessary to cook three meals a day or just make breakfast before going out for morning dives. The two bedrooms are air conditioned and provided for a good rest after a day of diving and moving equipment. Having a washing machine allows visitors to pack less and wash clothes if necessary. We also made use of the secure gear locker to store our gear in the evening. The location is central to diving and located 2 minutes from downtown by vehicle. The only trade off with location is noise from passing mopeds and car stereos on the street in front of the condo. We spent most of our time diving and exploring; when in the condo, it was usually sleeping. The noise from the street is not a factor when it comes to sleep, combining multiple dives in one day, good food, cocktails and the air conditioning, sleep was of no concern. We utilized the grocery service that was provided by the property management company, it was nice to begin vacation with necessities on hand instead of running to the store. Overall, we had a great stay and would recommend Playa Lechi 7.
Thank You for staying with us and hope you come again.
Bonaire; our second home
Rob, Sally and I enjoyed our stay in your condo. Your and Karens concern, is appreciated. We feel very comfortable with all the condo has. We appreciated your quick response with the pillows. We are looking forward to next year. Enjoy your travels. They sound terrific. The best to you both, Al Galiani
GReat, see you next year.
clean with modern kitchen upgrades. Lots of nets on the back deck and each bedroom.
The dive locker was the best dive and stay situation we ever had.
Happy you enjoyed your stay and please come stay with us again.
The condo was attractive, comfortable, and well located for our purposes.
This is the third time we've stayed here, so we must like it a lot. The only reason we're not giving it five stars it that it is only air conditioned in the bedrooms. Both beds have mosquito netting as does the entire balcony, which also has sun shades to keep out the direct sun in the afternoon. But that western sun means beautiful views of sunset every night. The furniture in the living room is very comfortable, a couch, a love seat, and an easy chair. We spent a great deal of time on them and the couch was a great place for napping. The kitchen is well furnished and we ate two meals in every day, only going out for dinner.
The condo is located just north of the downtown business area. We walked to dinner most nights. The major grocery store was a quick 10 minute drive and you don't have to go through downtown to get there. We walked a block north to Yellow Submarine and went snorkeling there several times, seeing many reef fish, an octopus, and huge tarpon most times.
Glad you enjoyed your third stay with us as most of our guests are repeat customers and we try to make the condo the best we can for our regular customers. As almost all condos or homes only air condition the bedrooms, we do the same and we hope most guests will enjoy the evening breezes and sunsets as you mentioned.
Electricity is the highest cost item we have and most of the electricity in Bonaire is generated from diesel, many people don't even use the air conditioners and use the sea breeze.
Hope to see you next year.
Great condo with patio on the water with views. Condo had everything we needed including a dive locker storage room for our gear near the rinse tank. Easy walk into town, Dive Friends almost next door for easy access to dive boats and tanks.
Bedrooms had mosquito nets, great comfortable beds and even a computer sized safe in every bedroom.
Will definitely stay here again.
Glad you enjoyed your stay.
Enjoyed our stay here -- good for divers
We spent a week here and enjoyed it. The place is well appointed and maintained. Mosquito nets on the beds in addition to screens and a mosquito curtain for the large lanai. The dive locker in the parking lot is a very nice touch and allowed us the freedom to do night dives without having to worry about what to do with our gear. Two minute walk to the dive shop at Yellow Submarine. Walking distance to the restaurants downtown.
Thank You for staying with us and look forward to you coming back.
Fanastic house reef in front with Yellow Sub dive operator/dock just yards to the North and Local fishing dock yards to South.
