About Bruce Carter
We (Bruce, Jean, and Sarah) are all avid snorkelers and divers. Jean and I first experienced the underwater world in St. John USVI more than 30 years ago and Sarah started snorkeling at 4 years old and was a certified diver at 12. We travelled to some great Caribbean locations in our search for the best snorkeling and diving including the USVIs, the BVIs, Akumal Mexico, Cozumel, and the Bay Islands of Honduras. In 2005 we made our first trip to Bonaire. We walked into the water with our masks and snorkels, swam out to the reef, and the search was over.
Bruce Carter purchased this Condo in 2008
Why Bruce Carter chose Belnem
About 6 months after 'discovering' Bonaire we were back on the island to look for a vacation home. The choice turned out to be surprisingly easy. We walked onto the site of the yet-to-be-built Bellevue condo and realized there was no point in looking at anything else. We were standing on a soft, white sand beach, one of very few on Bonaire, and looking out on a view that was truly stunning.
What makes this Condo unique
Bellevue is in the ideal location on Bonaire. It is central to all the most popular activities on Bonaire but far enough from town to afford peace and quiet. While most places to stay in Bonaire are across the street, or further, from the water, nothing separates Bellevue from the water but the beach. You can enjoy this beautiful beach, and dive or snorkel on a world class coral reef without ever leaving the property.

Wonderful diving a really enjoyed meeting the owner. Great diving. Loved grilling on the porch. Magical dolfin encounter right off the front. We will be back if Bruce eill have us.
Great on many levels
This condo, Surface Interval, had all the bases covered. We spent the majority of our time on the terrace, even grilling one night. Fully equipped kitchen, walk in showers with plentiful towels, comfy bed, good Wi-Fi, tv with many US channels. Everything clean clean.
The unit has some good snorkel gear with open back fins, although we didn’t use it. Snorkeling “out back” was as good as a couple of numbered sites. We had a group of dolphins one morning.
Although it’s five minutes from the airport noise was never an issue. We did have some street noise, not an issue for us as we used the master bedroom. Being on the second level was good—more secure and it put us on level with the pelicans who fished all day out back.
Loved everything about it
My husband, teenage daughter, and I loved our stay at Surface Interval for our dive vacation over Easter break. Favorite spot at the condo was the private lanai where we ate all our breakfasts and dinners, watched the sunset, watched and listened to birds, and spent the evenings relaxing and listening to the waves. Very convenient to dive the house reef, which was beautiful, and store our gear in the dive locker. The owner has ensured that this condo is stocked with everything you need from creature ID books to beach towels and it was spotless. Bed was super comfortable too. When we return to Bonaire we hope it is available to stay at again, it truly was fabulous.
Easy access into the water, nice beach, close to dining! Wonderful condo!
Excellent! Thank you so much for the opportunity to enjoy your amazing condo.
Bellevue is located on the beach in the quiet residential neighborhood of Belnem. We believe that Belnem is the best location on the island for a number of reasons. It is on the west coast which is where all the shore diving and almost all of the boat diving is done. This is also the leeward side which means that the water will be calm on the beach for great swimming and snorkeling.
The main town, where you will find many nice restaurants and shops is a short drive north while many of the islands best dive sites as well as the main kite-boarding beach are a short drive south. The road east to Bonaire's world class windsurfing bay starts in Belnem. Whether you come to Bonaire to enjoy the best diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean, the fantastic kiteboarding and windsurfing, peaceful days on the beach and in the sea, or all of the above, Bellevue is the place for you.
