Why Karin van den Ouden chose Belnem

Location, Location, Location. Great view, on the ocean for an easy dive night and a short drive to many other favorite dive sites. Close to airport and town.

Plus the comfort and design of the interior as we finished it.

What makes this condo unique

The ocean view and breeze when the entire ocean side sliding pocket door is opened or sitting on the balcony grilling your own dinner and watching the sunset. Luxurious bedrooms and baths.

Lovely quiet spot!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing view of the ocean -- perfect sunsets. Gas grill on the balcony is a treat! There is a handy ladder from the back patio directly into the sea. Great for an early morning dip. Kitchen is well equipped, and the location is close to town but not in town. Ideal for those preferring someplace quiet and private. A definite repeater.

Perfect location. Stunning view

  • 5 of 5

4th time staying here. Karen could not have been a better host. We love this location since it's right next to buddy dive belmar. So easy to get tanks and be at south end sites in minutes. Dive off of the unit is really nice too. We have breakfast and lunch in the unit and eat out 4 times and dinner at unit few times for a quiet evening, just perfect sitting on deck and watching sunset. We will be back!!!

Place is so nice we've stayed twice.

  • 4 of 5

Very spacious 2 bedroom 2.5 bath. (The living area is huge.) Excellent location, just after this quieter road breaks off from the main road. It is next to a dive shop so sometimes one can hear their activities. But it never bothered us. The veranda overlooking the back deck was great. We ate all of our lunches out there. As others will say, the kitchen isn't made for making big meals, but we eat dinner out every night anyway. And the manager, Karen, could not have been nicer nor more helpful. We'd be happy to rent their again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, family of 5 with 3 adult children. Karin was a wonderful property manager, she bought us groceries to get started since we were coming in late on Christmas Eve. The house is beautiful with a view to die for! We had an issue with the airbed that was resolved right away, and the replacement was very comfortable. Close to pretty much everything we were doing. What a great vacation!
