About the property

Condo, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2 plus child under 12))

Bon Bini. Welcome to Bonaire.

(Please note. We travel into wilderness areas and frequently have no Internet for several days. We WILL respond - but perhaps not always within 24 hours. Also, see Rates for possible additions to the VRBO quoted amount.)

Wake up to bananaquits, troupials and parakeets calling. Throw open the room-darkening drapes to your stunning view of the Caribbean. Step onto your private, screened porch. See from Klein Bonaire all the way north to Brandaris, the highest point on Bonaire.

Relax with your morning coffee and breakfast on the porch. Decide on the red or blue flip flops, bathing suit or shorts. Spend your whole day having fun.

Come home to beautiful sunsets while relaxing with your favorite drink on the screened porch or sundeck. Have a nice dinner. Pick your next day’s activities. Drift off to sleep in your comfy bed. Then, do it all again tomorrow.

Now you’re on Island Time. Ahhhh

We chose our piece of paradise not only for its view but also for its peaceful and convenient location. You are only 75 – 100 feet from the Caribbean with easy access to the turquoise waters of Bari Reef. You have choices – enter from our sandy beach, our sundeck via stairs to the water or our pier for swimming, snorkeling and diving. Bari, our house reef, is renowned for the greatest fish diversity in the Caribbean. Bonaire, consistently ranked as one of the best dive destinations in the Caribbean, defines shore-diving freedom.

Our studio’s location at Sand Dollar is perfect because you have:

The privacy, security, trade winds and fabulous views afforded by our second floor, oceanfront site

The services of our on-site Dive Friends Bonaire full service dive/snorkel operation at your fingertips- right next to our building. They offer guest gear storage, easy access to air, free upgrades to Nitrox, free weights and belts, rinse tanks, professional instruction, boat dives, island tours, kayaking and much more.

Guest parking far off the street but just across our landscaped area. Traffic noise is a non-issue.

Central location to all the island’s shore diving sites - none more than a short drive along the coast.

Peace next to the sea, but proximity to shopping.

Banking, restaurants, ice cream shop, spa/fitness facility, retail dive shop conveniently next to or across the street from Sand Dollar

Our fully furnished, oceanfront studio has everything you need to make your vacation the best ever.

A4 Studio Features

Full view, oceanfront screened porch with breakfast table and comfortable chairs

Sleeps 2 adults – Comfortable Queen Eurotop bed next to the porch (Child or second adult could sleep on couch pull-out bed)

Fully furnished kitchen with all the conveniences of home – stainless steel double sink with Grohe sprayer/faucet, ceramic cook-top, oven, dishwasher, full–sized refrigerator, blender, coffee maker, microwave, toaster, Wolfgang Puck pots&pans, dishes, glasses, flatware

Fully air conditioned at NO ADDITIONAL COST, plus 4 ceiling fans & floor fan

Please see even more condo photos in the link shown below.

Some resorts provide air conditioning at extra cost. Some air condition only the bedrooms. Our quiet air conditioning system cools the entire condo. But, you might not even need it. It’s amazingly comfortable with only fresh breezes. Because of our orientation and height above the sea, we have consistent Trade Winds for natural cooling. They flow into the condo through the window and full size screen door and out the 9-foot wide sliding glass doors across the screened porch. Ceiling fans on the porch, over the bed & couch and in the bath add to your comfort.

Want to enjoy Bonaire with more friends or family? We can arrange the rental of a similar, nicely appointed adjacent to and near our condo. You’ll enjoy being so close, but have the privacy of your own place.

We love Sand Dollar Condo Resort for all of its advantages;

Longest continuous beach frontage of any Bonaire resort

Eddy’s Sunrise Restaurant/Bar on site, a great place for all of your meals or a casual drink by the pool.

Close to many other restaurants for a taste of all the island’s famous cuisine

Large oceanfront sundeck with charcoal barbecue pits

Newly renovated, on-site, fresh water swimming pool

Lighted tennis courts

On site security

On-site management and maintenance

Maid service available at additional cost

Affiliated with Dive Friends Bonaire, a full service dive/snorkel/instruction center, is on-site next to our building. Dive Friends offers unlimited shore diving, boat dives, drive-up air, free Nitrox upgrades, rinse tanks, guest gear storage and more

This unit is truly your home away from home and we know you’ll be comfortable. Before you arrive in Bonaire, we can help you with truck rentals, grocery locations, resources and directions. Once you’re there, our on-island management team will take care of any needs during your stay. And, before you head home, we hope you’ll post your comments so we can make your next stay even better. You’ll be thinking about your next Bonaire visit even before you leave the island!
