About Christine Rufener
After discovering how easy it was to shore dive in Bonaire and all that it had to offer to include checking out the wonderful sea life (found a seahorse on my birthday dive at Windsock), I knew this was the place I would semi-retire to one day. The people are friendly and warm; the sun seems to shine all the time; the casual atmosphere and spectacular diving. What more could you ask for?
Christine Rufener purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Christine Rufener chose Kralendijk
Why do we love having a vacation home in Bonaire? The lovely Dutch architecture and the nice, friendly, and lovely people that we have met. Our condo is located in a place where people seek out to refresh, rejuvenate, and relax in a quiet and peaceful setting where you can snorkel or dive right in front of the condo. There is an awesome operating dive shop on the premises who are great at what they do, a lovely pool and pool deck, it is just very relaxing!!! I really wouldn't need to leave this place and would enjoy every day there. But...there are so many things to do in Bonaire, fabulous restaurants, awesome diving, a nice sandy beach just a minute of the road from the condo. Close to everything - the airport is especially convenient - you can walk right over to the condo (save on 2 days of truck rental)!!

Water sport paradise
Our week in Bonaire was wonderful! My husband did 6 dives with the dive shop next door to our condo, and I did a bit of snorkeling at the nearby public beach which I walked to. However, it would not have been as good a vacation if we hadn't chosen the perfect place to stay. We felt very comfortable as soon as we walked into the pretty and clean condo. Everything we needed was supplied, and we found the location excellent for diving trips and for exploring the rest of the island in our rental car (from across the street). We enjoyed watching the boats come and go from our balcony, loved the landscaping, and relaxed in the pool. As stated above, we loved our vacation in Bonaire - certainly enhanced because we stayed at Reefs Edge.
Two weeks in paradise
Beautiful condo, just as described. Amazing view from balcony, overlooking ocean, Klein Bonaire and Kralendijk shores. The trade winds keep the condo cool and comfortable. Great snorkeling off dock and from Te Amo beach next door. Te Amo beach is also great place to scuba dive from with Kite City food truck for after dive lunch of fresh fish sandwich’s.
Airport is short walk across street and not a noise nuisance at all. Only few flights a day in afternoon or early evening and hardly noticeable. Dive friends is literally the next building over so easy access to dive supplies and air.
There is so much to do in Bonaire, can’t wait to go back. Downtown Kralendijk is is only 5 to 10 minutes away depending on where you are going
Fabulous condo overlooking the Caribbean Sea
My husband and I spend 2 weeks here. The location was perfect. Just a 5 minute drive to the grocery store or a 7 minute drive to downtown where the vast majority of the restaurants are. The property manager met us at the airport and we walked literally across a 2 lane road to the condo. The view was amazing! Even though the airport is right there, we were never bothered by the noise. There are only a few flights a day in and out of Bonaire, so that was never an issue. The condo was nice and quiet. It isn't a resort, but a unit in a complex, so it is very quiet. There was a dive shop right next door. The people at the dive shop are super helpful with suggestions of good dive sights. There is a washing machine to use, and a dishwasher too. We very much enjoyed our stay. Thanks Christine!
Great Location, Great Panoramic View, Outstanding Breezes !
My wife and I stayed at Reef’s Edge again for two weeks. It is a great 1 bedroom apartment with full well stocked kitchen. It has A/C but the location is perfect for great soothing breezes with the screened windows and doors open. Our favorite feature is the balcony overlooking Bonaire harbor, Klein Bonaire and the Caribbean Sea. The breezes on this covered balcony are outstanding.
The apartment was super clean and very well organized and decorated. There is a clothes washer in a utility room and a fold up drying rack on the back balcony which is very convenient for drying laundry as well as wet items from snorkeling / scuba diving. There are two chaise lounges on the back balcony for relaxing and taking in the breezes and magnificent view.
We used the fold-up beach chairs several times when we went snorkeling to several of our favorite snorkel spots ( Windsock, Bari’s Reef, etc). They have a BBQ grill if you want to grill some food.
Dive Friends dive shop is right next to Reef’s Edge apartment making it super convenient for scuba tanks for shore diving as well as boat diving. I completed 27 dives during the two week period ( 8 boat dives and 19 shore dives).
The owners were very nice to deal with and respond very quickly to any question or inquiry. This is a beautifully landscaped apartment complex with electronic gates so owners and guests feel very secure. The pool and access to inlet and local dive sites are great. There is a scuba equipment rinse tank and shower right on the water access platform.
Do not hesitate to rent this great apartment. It has everything we needed for a great two week stay. We cannot wait to go back again!

Beautiful balcony view and great location
This condo is comfortable and convenient and right next door to Te Amo, one of the most beautiful beaches and dive spots on the island. Watching the sunset from the pool is awesome. We liked watching sea birds fishing right in front of us and iguanas and crabs climbing on the sea wall.
Christine was very responsive to our emails and made sure our stay went smoothly. We would definitely come back here!
Bonaire has many activities booked throughout the year to include Underwater Clean Up, Fishing Tournaments, Regattas, Carnival, Heineken Jazz Festival, Cultural Markets and Events and Miscellaneous Festivals throughout the year. There is ALWAYS something to do in Bonaire!!!
