vacation rental description

Bonaire Vacation Rental with Incredible View

Welcome to OceanScape Bonaire, your beautiful Bonaire oceanfront condo! You won't believe your eyes when you experience your fabulous view.  Your condo is located in the small, quiet, Port Bonaire Resort, located just across the street from the airport.  It is so oceanfront, we like to say you can "spit in the ocean" from the balcony (but due to tradewinds, it is not recommended!).  The bright, sunny one bedroom condo affords superb privacy, located all the way at the end of the beautiful Dutch-styled building with a panoramic view across the ocean to Kralendijk, Klein Bonaire and the northern mountains of Washington Slaagbai Park.  But just turn your head and you have the added bonus of a view across Donkey Beach and those gorgeous Bonaire sunsets to the West.  That's right, since you are on the corner, you have a 270 degree view that cannot be surpassed.  There is nothing quite like relaxing on the balcony after a long day of diving or snorkeling, glass of wine in hand, to watch the sunset into the ocean.   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 and dive, and when we finally ticked off Bonaire on our list of places to visit, we immediately knew we had found our second home.  We searched during several visits for the perfect place, and finally found it at Port Bonaire.

What makes it so great?  It had all of these things that we were looking for and even more:

  • Snorkel and dive directly in front of the condo.  There is an easy ladder entry, freshwater shower and rinse tank for you to use just steps away from your door, and it is a very short swim to 18th Palm or Windsock dive sites.  Some of the most spectacular diving and snorkeling on the island is right in front of you.
  • Walk to the beach.  Donkey beach/Windsock is a few steps south of your condo.
  • Dive shop on site.  Dive Friends runs a full operation on site and that including lockers.  Our guests receive a 20% discount on air/nitrox packages and courses.
  • 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, just next door, 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 to save a few bucks. (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)
  • Second 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.
  • Swimming pool right on the oceanfront.  Plenty of lounge chairs and an outdoor shower.
  • Beautiful tropical grounds surround the small, peaceful complex of 26 units.

When you open the door from your private stairway, you will turn through the archway into an open greatroom that includes the kitchen and livingroom which opens through a floor to ceiling glass wall onto the balcony.  The vaulted ceiling adds an open, airy feel.  Tropical décor puts you in the mood for your restful vacation.  The livingroom area includes a sofa sleeper and 40" flat panel LCD TV, Blu-ray / DVD player, and stereo with IPod docking station.  A secure DSL ethernet or wireless internet signal is for your use. 

The kitchen is fully equipped (really, I like to cook!) with fridge, cooktop, microwave/convection/grill oven, dishwasher, coffeemaker, toaster, blender and electric kettle.  There is even a crockpot!  The granite countertops offer plenty of workspace if you feel like cooking and enjoying a meal on the privacy of your own balcony.  You will also have a Smokey Joe grill if you want to BBQ.  We also provide you with 2 beach chairs and a cooler if you want to have a picnic on the beach.

The toilet and bath/shower are separated into two different rooms, each with its own vanity, as is common in European style.  This is nice in case you are utilizing the sofa sleeper.  The bathroom and toilet are separate from each other, and both are accessible without going into the bedroom. 

The bedroom has a comfy queen-size bed, plenty of fluffy pillows, a nice sized closet and a 27"TV.  French doors open onto a small terrace overlooking the garden.  There are rods installed with heavy duty dive hangers to securely dry your gear on this balcony.

And finally, off the large side balcony (yes, there are two!) there is a laundry room with a washing machine and a drying rack.

Linens and towels are provided.

There is air conditioning throughout, but all doors and windows have mosquito screens so you can enjoy the beautiful tradewinds if you wish.

Electric plugs are US standard plugs.  Voltage is 120 (+ or -) and generally at 50hz.  Surge strips are provided for your use.  There is also a "safe charging station"  - - a transformer installed with 5 open outlets on the attached surge protector so you can safely charge any items that might be sensitive to the voltage and hz fluctuations.

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

There is a safe in the condo for your use.

If you inquire, we will send you a link to a photo site with many more pictures.  This site does not permit us to post a link.

Activities and Attractions on Bonaire

If you are making the trip to Bonaire, you probably already know the main activities are scuba diving,  snorkeling, and swimming.  All of these can be done just a few steps away from your door.  World class windsurfing and kitesurfing are only minutes away by car.
 

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.             

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.  Dive Friends offers our guests a 20% discount on air/nitrox packages and dive courses, and we will share that rate sheet with you upon your inquiry.

Our guests receive a 15% discount at AVIS.
