About this listing

Chosen by our guests as the best 2 bedroom oceanfront apartment in Bonaire. Our guests say: "peaceful, breathtaking views, luxurious, private, diver-friendly."

You can't get any closer to the sea - 16 feet away! Panoramic views from every window.

The space

THIS IS NOT LIKE ANY OTHER SAND DOLLAR APARTMENT!

This high-end 2200+ sqft apartment was designed as the primary residence of Sand Dollar's developer. It's a 3 bedroom condo converted into a 2 bedroom with immense living spaces. And unlike usual Sand Dollar dormitory-style apartments, this apartment is really private. It's private because it's the whole second floor of the building.

The reef is right in front and it's a Bonaire classic. According to years of REEF surveys, Bari Reef, as it is called, has more biodiversity than other reefs in Bonaire. Your morning snorkel will be great, your daytime and night dives will be exceptional.

There are no roads or public access between you and the water. Sand Dollar Resort is the largest oceanfront community in Bonaire with long pathways along the waterfront. And it's quiet! The sounds of development are elsewhere.

The apartment was recently renovated and has a new kitchen, bathrooms, furniture, tiles, doors & windows.

The apartment is cool and breezy and completely screened in - mosquito free. Full time night time security guards patrol the premises.

Both bedrooms have air conditioning and ceiling fans and have king size beds & en suite bathrooms.

The kitchen is fully equipped with black granite countertops, dishwasher, oven, oversized cooktop, ice maker, Senseo coffee machine, blenders, toasters, microwave... the list goes on.

Internet, wifi and cable tv all included. There is a television in each bedroom and an IPhone speaker dock. There is a washing machine and digital safe.

For scuba divers, there is a large dive locker and rinse tank on the ground floor.

The resort facilities include
• shore diving and snorkeling in front

Catherine was a great host and everything was just as promised and described. She even left us a little welcome gift, which was very thoughtful and a nice surprise. (Thank you Catherine!) The condo is tastefully decorated and very spacious. There are lots of really cool marine themed photos and paintings on the walls in every room. Nice, high-end fixtures, appliances, and counter tops throughout. The kitchen had all the plates, cookware, etc. that we needed. The views from the screened in deck are wonderful. We watched the sunset almost every evening. Great snorkeling and diving right there in the "backyard", with a convenient dive locker outside. The condo complex itself, the pool and the restaurant, are nothing special, but we didn't really use them so that didn't bother us. The only negative thing we experienced was REALLY loud music coming from somewhere South of the Sand Dollar complex at night. I don't know if it was from a club or some other resort, but it was very loud and lasted a long time. From maybe around 9pm to midnight, but sometimes during the early evening as well. I would think there would be local ordinances against that sort of thing, and maybe there are because it happened for a couple of nights and then not again. But this may also have been because the club or resort only had music certain nights. I don't know the details, if we were staying longer I would have investigated the source and complained. To be clear, I'm NOT talking about the musicians at Buddy Dive next door, they played at a reasonable volume and that was fine. The loud music was coming from the other direction and was totally obnoxious. Anyway, even with that, we still had a great time and fortunately the loud music seemed to die out around midnight or so, so it didn't keep us up. Overall, we loved the condo and had a great time.
