Hello! My name is Catherine and I have been in Bonaire since 2000. The underwater world is very important to me. I’m Canadian from Montreal and am an underwater photographer, showing my work at numerous galleries. I'm the host of the tv show DreamWrecks - about the most spectacular wrecks of the Caribbean. You’ll see many of my photographs on the walls of the apartment.Want to know about diving in Bonaire? Don’t hesitate to ask.
Catherine purchased this Apartment in 2010

The Blue Zone has a Wow factor
This is a lovely condo right on the water at the Sand Dollar property. There are clearly upgrades to this unit compared to other units on the grounds that we walked by. The art and appointments are upscale. The lay out of the unit is awesome. The kitchen was nicely stocked with utensils, pots, pans, etc. We enjoyed the needed air conditioning in the bedrooms at night. Early September is dry and hot on Bonaire and the dust was ever present despite our daily sweeping and dusting off the furniture fabric. A vacuum and mop would have been useful. The on site rinse tank and equipment closet was very convenient for our dive gear. The beachy-blue decor with original sea-life paintings and stunning photography lives up to its name "the blue zone".
We took our 19yr old son on his 1st diving trip and this couldn’t have been better. The condo is in a great location with diving just outside the door. The owner has it beautifully decorated and has thought of all the little things to make it feel like home. This was a wonderful trip abd the condo was just perfect!
Great place in a great location.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Zone. Catherine was very helpful with booking our rental car, information about the island, and made everything nice and easy. The Blue Zone is an excellent property with quality amenities. The location is perfect for access to any part of Bonaire, is close to Kralendijk, and the house reef, Bari, is a great dive site. We look forward to coming back to Bonaire and the Blue Zone.
Awesome Location...great property!
Perfect location to enjoy all that Bonaire has to offer!
Property is well maintained and comfortable.
Will be back!!
Perfect week in Paradise!
As great as this property looks online - it's even better in person! Everything was perfect - from the communication before the trip, help with a rental car, pick up at the airport through checkout. The screened wrap around deck is fabulous - the entire place feels open with heavenly views. We planned to eat out most nights, but we ended up spending most nights enjoying the dining area on the deck - the sunsets are the best and the kitchen has everything you need. If you do go out to eat, highly recommend La Terrazza and Sebastian's (get a reservation early enough to enjoy the sunset from the patio). Take out pizza from Rum Runner's (right next door) was also a huge hitWe used Dive Friends for all our gear, a refresher course, shore dive certification, unlimited tanks, 2 boat dives and a night dive. The diving in front of the condo is FANTASTIC! A few steps away, has a set up station and shower, easy ladder in. I think that was our favorite part - diving out the front door every day. Having the storage locker, cart and rinsing station was perfect. We are already anxious to go back and can't imagine staying anywhere else!!
Blue Zone was exceptional
Our trip to Bonaire was the most amazing experience. Staying at the Blue Zone was frosting on the cake. Waking up each day to beautiful artwork was unbelievable. Berry picking us up at the airport and giving us pointers on groceries, restaurants and island living was so helpful. We loved the calm vibe the Sand Dollar provided. The folks at Dive Friends had all the equipment we needed for scuba diving. We were able to get air tanks, clean and store our gear without bumping into other divers. The only sad part is having to wait a year to return!
The apartment is a 10 minute walking distance to downtown shopping and dining. The walk is along the waterfront and very enjoyable.
The apartment is far enough away from the downtown to be unencumbered by roads, traffic, noise and cruise ship nonsense - but close enough to enjoy the conveniences.
Sand Dollar has expansive private oceanfront access - right in front of the apartment. Great for snorkelling and diving. On Resort Dive Shop services, as well as tennis courts and swimming pool.
