Oceanvista Bonaire - Oceanfront Condo with Incredible View

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 6 nights


About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Welcome to OceanVista Bonaire! An absolutely stunning view and fabulous accommodation awaits you. You will marvel at the view over the beautiful turquoise and blue sea, the quaint seaport of Kralendijk, the quiet secluded island of Klein Bonaire, and the northern vista to scenic and rugged Washington Slagbaai National Park. OceanVista is one of 4 penthouse units located in the small, quiet, Port Bonaire Resort.

The bright, sunny 2 bedroom (plus) affords superb privacy, located on the top floor of the Dutch-styled building. There is nothing quite like relaxing on the balcony after a long day of diving or snorkeling. Although waking up, pouring a cup of coffee and meandering out on the balcony to see dolphins arching across the water while a cruise ship passes by to port in Kralendijk is not too bad either!

We have traveled all over the Caribbean for many years, always with the dream/goal of buying our own place on the water. We love to snorkel, hike, go boating, bicycle, and relax on the beach. When we finally ticked off Bonaire on our list of places to visit, we immediately knew we had found our second home. During several visits we searched for the perfect place, and finally found it. We bought our little gem, OceanScape Bonaire, in early 2008, and in late summer 2010 we could not resist the opportunity to purchase OceanVista, our fabulous penthouse. And now announcing OceanEdge, our beautiful one or two bedroom (can be configured either way).

What makes it so great? Be sure to read about 'Unique Benefits at this Condo' further down the page in the 'Map and Owner's Profile' section.

When you walk through the door into your condo, you will pass through the archway into an open great room that includes the kitchen and living room, a spacious area with a 20 ft. vaulted ceiling adding an open, airy feeling and from almost anywhere in the room, a broad sweeping view across the sea. New,tasteful tropical décor puts you in the mood for your restful vacation.

There is an electronic security alarm system on the condo for your peace of mind.

The living room area includes new Caribbean contemporary furnishings, a 37' flat panel LCD TV, Blu-ray / DVD player, and stereo with IPod docking station. A secured DSL line to use with provided Ethernet cable or wireless with the access code we will provide to you.

The kitchen is loaded with all you need (really, I like to cook!). Full-size fridge, oven and ceramic cook top, microwave oven, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, blender and electric kettle. We even provide a crockpot! Granite countertops offer plenty of workspace if you feel like cooking and enjoying a meal on the privacy of your own balcony. Smokey Joe grill you can take to the beach with you if you want to enjoy a BBQ picnic.

Dining on the balcony on the large teak table is such a treat! Whatever you have prepared, it can't taste bad with THIS view. If you wish to dine inside you have a nice kitchen bar and a small bistro table to suit your needs or mood at the time. For a special treat, light some candles and dine al fresco at night on the balcony. The glow of the pool and the shimmering lights of Kralendijk (add a bottle of wine) will stir your senses....just try it.

The master bedroom has a private bath with large walk-in shower. Memory foam-topped, comfy king-size bed, plenty of fluffy pillows, nice sized closet and dresser and 37' flat screen TV with Blu-ray player . This bedroom, with a view from the bedroom windows that will make you cry when you have to leave, opens onto the large, main balcony overlooking the pool, and a magnificent view of the sea, Klein Bonaire, and the entire western shoreline of the island.

The second bedroom is just a gem. Two beds with memory foam toppers can be put together or kept separate. A private bath, roomy closet and large dresser, individually controlled a/c unit (or turn it off and open the window for a fabulous trade wind to caress your tropical dreams), and Sony Bravia 32' flat panel TV with Blu-ray player...quiet, delightful private retreat.

Upstairs, a roomy sleeping loft with two VERY comfortable twin beds that can be separated or put together and your own a/c to control as you wish. The loft can share the bath/toilet with the 2nd bedroom with a unique door and lock arrangement that maintains privacy for both parties.

A safe is available in the condo for your use.

Off the stairside balcony there is a laundry room with a washing machine and a drying rack.

Four beach chairs and a cooler provided.

Linens and towels provided.

A transformer-based, surge-protected charging station is provided for your recharging needs.

Secure DSL line for your free internet access. Fast and reliable.

Security Alarm

Air conditioning in each and every room, including livingroom and loft, all doors and windows have mosquito screens so whenever you wish, you can enjoy the beautiful trade winds.

PLEASE NOTE: OceanVista is not suitable for children under 6 yrs. of age.

About Connie Rubek

My husband and I love the fantastic underwater world in Bonaire.

Connie Rubek purchased this condo in 2010

What makes this condo unique

* Snorkel and dive directly in front of the condo. Easy ladder entry for you to use, steps away from your door, very short swim to 18th Palm or Windsock dive sites. Spectacular snorkeling and diving right in front of you. Dockside rinse tank, freshwater shower, and hanging hooks.

* Walk to beach. Donkey beach/Windsock is a few steps south of your condo through a secure access gate.

* Dive shop on site. Dive Friends runs a full operation on site.

* Close to the action. You are less than a 10 minute drive to the coveted south shore dive sites or windsurfing at Lac Bay, and 5 minutes to the center of Kralendijk.

* Easy access to the airport, rental cars, grocery, and a short walk to Plaza Resort, where you will find boat rental, water sports, tennis and restaurants. We don't even rent a car when we arrive. We roll our luggage across the street and get settled in, and then rent a car later when the crowds have died down at the car rental counters, or even the next day.(And don't worry, the airport is not noisy here - - it is much noisier at places a little further south in Belnem due to the orientation of the single runway)

* Top floor and the additional sense of security it brings, not to mention the enhanced view.

* Sunny, tropical décor and plenty of windows to open, or Air-Conditioning is available throughout.

* Large swimming pool right on the oceanfront. Plenty of lounge chairs.

* Beautiful tropical gardens full of butterflies and songbirds surround the small, peaceful complex of 26 units

I want to move to Bonaire!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was beautiful, clean, and very safe. The beds were comfy too. My only complaints are that the kitchen is on the small side (my group likes to cook) and the association does not allow BBQs. Other than that it was fantastic!! I will be back for sure.

Fantastic place to stay! Safe, relaxing and convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. The owner is very nice and quickly answers any questions. She is very helpful. The condo is beautiful and has a breathtaking view. We spent lots of time outside on the deck. The snorkeling is great right outside the complex. With the airport and the Dive Friends shop right next door, this is one of the best places to stay on the island. We can't wait to return!

The condo is top floor with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The snorkeling is unbelievable right outside your door! The large pool is also very refreshing! Connie's unit has everything you need, down to the oil, sugar, condiments, lots of cookware, etc. Don't be afraid that it is next to the airport! As you may know there are VERY few flights to Bonaire so you rarely hear a plane and there is no noise at night as they do not fly. It is so convenient to walk off the plane and just cross the street to the condo! The location is 5 minutes from downtown but just far enough away for peace and quiet. There are individual air conditioners in each room which is nice. There are blow dryers in each bathroom and s DVD player with lots of movies. You can also do Netflix as there is no place to rent DVD's on the island. The other guests are very civilized and everyone is friendly at the complex. It is a great, very safe location! Connie responds quickly to any and all your questions! I would return in a heartbeat!

Another wonderful visit!

  • 5 of 5

Oceanvista is a spacious, clean comfortable condo with great views of the water and a perfect location near the airport, town and dive sites. It is a perfect set-up for families. The condo has absolutely everything you need. The pool is quiet and clean. This was our third stay with Connie. She is extremely reliable and helpful. We will definitely stay here again on our next visit to Bonaire!

5 Stars isn't a high enough rating

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from one of the most enjoyable, stress-free vacations we've ever experienced.

The descriptions don't do Ocean Vista justice. The ocean views are gorgeous! It literally is right across a small street from the airport. And, like all other posts have mentioned - you don't notice the flight noise at all. I personally think you'll want to rent a car (for groceries and shore dives, if nothing else).

As divers we HIGHLY recommend the convenience of staying here and diving with Dive Friends. Dive Friends is a few steps away - they're friendly, accommodating and very professional, yet fun. We didn't have to lug our gear from the dive shop at all. We got a locker there and could walk back and forth from Ocean Vista whenever we wanted to dive.

Ocean Vista is better equipped than my home. :-) We had everything we needed: island cell phone, charging docks that wouldn't fry our electronics, coolers, plenty of towels, washing machine, spices, pans, flashlight, light bulbs - etc. The layout is genius - traveling with a 19 and 17 year old, we loved the one full bath and two half baths. The beds are comfortable, the view is spectacular and we never heard neighbors next door. it even came equipped with BCD hangers. We're used to renting units with a clothes dryer, but I must say drying rack (used outside with trade winds or inside with large fans) was very convenient. There were always open lounge chairs and the pool was the perfect temperature. The condo was clean, well-decorated and very comfortable.

Connie (owner) and Mark (maintenance guru) were wonderful, fast to respond to any questions and so helpful.

We just can't say enough wonderful things about this place!

Thank you, Connie, for living up to the high expectations set on VRBO. Everything was truly spectacular!!

Thank you so much for the use of your condo. It's a perfect location with an amazing view and access to the water. Your condo is beautiful and worked great for our family of 5. We loved all the extra amenities that we were able to use such as the coolers, beach chairs, and grill. We will try booking with you on our next trip to Bonaire. Thank you!

Car: recommended

If you are making the trip to Bonaire, you probably already know the main activities are scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, windsurfing, kite surfing, fishing, biking, and hiking. Port Bonaire is constructed at the edge of a channel with a protective jetty in front, so entry to the sea is always calm and easy. Donkey Beach/Windsock, just next door, is one of the most popular beaches on the island. It can be accessed through a secure gate with coded lock. By making arrangements with Dive Friends (we can put you in touch with them directly), depending on what time you arrive on island, you very well may be able to do your dive orientation the same day your arrive.
