Bonaire is great for swimming, hiking, and cycling, with outstanding windsurfing at Lac Bay, just show up they have all the equipment you would need.

Of course SCUBA diving is second to none on Bonaire and can be done in front of the property. Conveniently Dive Friends Bonaire @YellowSubmarine is just 200 yards along the boulevard from the apartment at Kaya Playa Lechi #24.

The condominium complex is surrounded by a fenced in garden, very nicely maintained, with private parking for cars as well as storage and hanging and rinsing facilities for diving equipment as well as a place to store rented bicycles. (The front door key provides access to these facilities for guests)

(Diving, bike and scooter rental is conveniently available within 200 meters at diving and bike rental centers right on the beachfront)

The whole condominium complex was built in 2008 and has just been freshly repainted and is looking like new, with very nice tropically landscaped gardens.

We have stayed here before and loved it so much we came back! Hoping to return again this Autumn! What's NOT to love? The apartment is stylish, spacious and comfortable. It has everything you could wish for to enhance your holiday. The views from the balcony are stunning! Facilities for divers are excellent with deep wash tanks and safe storage. We will be back!

Excellent location along the Kraledijk waterfront

  • 3 of 5

Our party of 3 stayed for the week beginning on 27 August 2016. This fourth floor property is modern and well maintained. It occupies an excellent location along the Kraledijk waterfront, close to a local Dive Shop. Sunsets seen from the balcony are outstanding. Rinse tanks, and a locked gear drying area, are available at ground level. Dive gear hangers are not provided. An elevator is available for all floors. This unit has comfortable beds, spacious bathrooms, and a kitchen suitable for meal preparation.

A/C is available only in the bedrooms. The literature directs running the A/C only at night to conserve electricity and avoid additional power charges. This visit was in the hottest time of the year, so the A/C limitations were an issue for us. On windy days, enough breeze was available for reasonable comfort. On a hot day with little breeze, the unit was much too hot for those not acclimated to hot and humid living conditions. Another factor was the mosquitoes on these hot days with little wind. The literature also indicates that when leaving the property, or for sleeping, the balcony doors should be closed and locked to prevent unauthorized entry. This applies even to the upper elevations. There is a gated parking lot with keyed access. The parking spaces are relatively small for rented trucks and the limited space makes navigating the turns a challenge.

We were not expecting any cleaning service during our stay due to information on the web site. On Tuesday a cleaning crew did appear unexpectedly. Although the divers were absent, the unit was occupied at the time of the cleaning visit. When the divers returned, cash was found to be missing from a wallet left in the second bedroom. This was reported to the Property Manager on that day. The representative was very apologetic regarding the theft and indicated that they would follow up with the Cleaning Company owner. No additional communication regarding the theft was received.

The dishwasher malfunctioned during our stay. This was reported to the Property Manager and the response was prompt and effective at restoring the dishwasher to service.

Elegancia 23 is an excellent option for travelers already acclimated to hot and humid living conditions, or perhaps in a cooler time of the year. Take substantial care with personnel possessions on cleaning crew day and don’t forget insect repellent.

Owner's Response: We are extremely concerned that money might have been taken and that our guests would have been inconvenienced in any way. This especially because we know the cleaning service which we use ourselves when we regularly stay in this lovely apartment. I thus checked in with our Rental Agents who organize this midweek cleaning service as part of their excellent support of this property. They responded as follows: "I was surprised since the unit was cleaned by a cleaning company that has been cleaning a lot of our accommodations for years. We know their staff as trustful and hardworking and we never had issues with them. But of course we were taking their message (of our guests) very seriously and we told them that we would talk to the owner of the cleaning company. Which we did, but they denied the theft. The jeans was indeed on the bed and they changed the bedlinen. But they were all there in the same room and they did not take the money." We advise all our guests to close windows etc when they leave the apartment to avoid the potential for petty theft. This may well be overkill, on the upper floor, where our apartment is, but we err on the side of caution. Then unfortunately, this week was reported by our agents as one of the hottest and windless at times. Most apartments in Bonaire, but especially this one with its top floor location are designed with louvered window slats that can be adjusted to let the trade winds blow through the apartments. The bedrooms are both well air-conditioned and offer respite, if at times, on windless days in the hottest days of summer, the temperature is not to a guests liking.
