About the property

You are going to love this fully renovated and upgraded 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom, oceanfront condo, located on the best reef in Bonaire.

It's so easy to go for a dive or snorkel at any time, whether it's early morning, noon, sunset, or night, and you're always going to find something different on Bari reef.

You'll find all new tile flooring throughout. Push open the triple size sliding doors in the living room, to add the large, screened-in patio as an additional room to enjoy morning coffee, bird watching, or a nice, cold beer after diving all day.

A modern kitchen with granite countertops, pull-out shelving, cutlery rack, pull-out trash bin and recycling includes all new appliances with oven, cooktop, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave, and a programmable coffee maker. You'll find service for 12, and all of the kitchen gadgets, pots & pans, and accessories you could need if you like to cook or be the gathering point for a group vacation. You'll even find an easy-to-use ice-cream maker and Ben & Jerry's recipe book to create some frozen treats to savor during the warm days.

Both the dining room table and the patio table can be expanded to sit 6 to 8 people comfortably, while the living room sectional couch can quickly be converted into a double bed or a way for everyone to enjoy the chaise. You'll also find a laptop desk in the center of the book shelves. Bring your laptop or tablet to keep in touch with family & friends back home, check in with work, or review your dive photos.

Our unit contains it's own dedicated, private router, providing reliable internet, WiFi, and cable.

Brand new air conditioners are in each of the bedrooms AND in the living area. Open the fully screened doors & windows to let the trade winds blow through.

Two spacious bathrooms, have walk-in, stone floor showers, with adjustable one-handle shower heads. The master bath has two sinks, while the guest bath has one sink. Plenty of lighting, storage, shelving, and towel holders ensure that you will be as comfortable as possible.

Both bedrooms are fully air-conditioned, and you'll find new, Sealy Posturepedic mattresses to enjoy a good night's sleep. The master bedroom contains a king-size bed, while the other bedroom contains two twin beds that can be easily converted into one king-size bed. Please let us know if you prefer 2 twins or 1 king when you make your reservation.

The bedroom nightstand clocks are both wireless, bluetooth speakers with USB charging ports.

If you like to kick back and watch TV, you'll find a 47-inch LED HD television in the livingroom and a 40-inch LED HD television in the master bedroom.

A large, digital safe can store cameras, laptops, or other electronics and valuables.

Maid-service twice a week is included, as are bed linens, hand towels, bath towels, beach towels, and free starter supplies including soaps, paper towels, toilet paper, trash bags, and dishwasher soap.

Gear-hanging and drying pegs are located in the locked, screened-in patio, and our corner location makes an easy transfer of gear from your truck to the patio, or better yet, gear up and walk out front to be diving off the front yard. Dive gear storage is also available at the onsite dive shop.

Bonaire Dive Friends is our on-site dive shop, that offers full, five star PADI services, and 24-hour access to nitrox and air tanks, rinse tanks, and gear storage. They offer five drive-up locations across the island, with tank exchange, boat dives, equipment rentals and repairs, courses, and other outdoor activities. Your scuba orientation and checkout dive are done on your schedule, whenever you're ready to start, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Restaurant, pool, two tennis courts with night lights, small sandy beach, oceanfront lounge chairs, and grill area are available for guests. Ample parking available directly in front of unit. You'll also find many good restaurants and bars within a 5-10 minute walk.

About Ann Firestine

We are absolutely thrilled to be able to own a condo at our favorite dive location in Bonaire, and look forward to sharing it with you. We currently live Durham, NC but are originally from New Hampshire and New Jersey, and have lived throughout the U.S. We love traveling the world but found ourselves returning to Bonaire time after time to enjoy the amazing shore diving.

Why Ann Firestine chose Hato

We've stayed at many places on Bonaire but absolutely loved this oceanfront location on Bari Reef. Put your toes in the sand at the small beach, watch the sunset or the parrots in the treetops, walk to any number of great restaurants, dive center on site, a swimming pool, tennis courts, or just enjoy the peace & quiet. We think it's the best location on island.

Beautiful spot on Bonaire!

  • 4 of 5

Bonaire is beautiful and the condo is in a great location. It was the perfect amount of space for two couples. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need for cooking, plenty of extra items in the closet for our use. We loved the screen porch overlooking the water for the sunsets. It was a short car ride to town and there were restaurants and some shopping within walking distance. It was our first visit to Bonaire and we will definitely go back.

Great looking location, snorkeling at your doorstep!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Sand Dollar. The location was great for restaurants, snorkeling and relaxing with a drink at sunset.

The condo met all of our needs except that there is no washer and dryer. We especially enjoyed eating meals on the screened porch.

The best thing about our visit to Bonaire was a snorkeling trip to Klein Bonaire with Woodwind. A hundred times better than the the water taxi. The captain of the boat was extremely knowledgeable about the reef and all other marine life. She snorkeled with us and pointed out hidden things in the water that I would never have seen. I have snorkeled many times but this was just wonderful.

Fantastic Condo, upgraded on the perfect dive site Barri Reef

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here in E-11 before. Property is exactly as advertised and beautifully updated, the kitchen has everything you could ever dream of. The trade winds blow and keep it cool with the help of the extra window in the living area. This condo sits right on the most awesome dive site in Bonaire, Barri Reef. The dock is right at the end of this property and two additional dive ladders let you enter and exit also right on the reef. Maid service is twice a week and we love the ironed sheets they provide, all of our creature habits are met here. The dive shop is new but not new to the island. They provide tanks to dive at Barri and also drive up for shore diving around the island. Thanks to the owners of E-11 they have seen to all our needs.

Owner's thought of everything!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at this Sand Dollar Condo. This is our 3rd stay at Sand Dollar and I must say that the owner's thought of everything to include in the condo. We were pleased to have a cooler to take on our journeys around the island and also several storage containers for leftovers which usually are hard to come by at any VRBO property. Great stay, would stay there again.

Seriously, stay HERE!

  • 5 of 5

E-11 was lovely! We had everything that we could have needed and more. We did have the living room aircon unlocked but found that most days, we didn't need it because this corner unit caught such wonderful breezes. We enjoyed all meals on the fully screened patio and appreciated not having to pack or purchase things like coolers. We even found E-11 to have things that we forgot, like mosquito repellent. The beds were comfy, wifi strong. Dive Friends is super convenient & it is great using the pier facilities at Bari Reef. A week just flew by, next time, we will stay for 2.

A lovely unit

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 6 wonderful weeks in E-11. The condo is very nicely decorated, well designed and equipped with everything you need. Books and island information are well organized. There are several power strips so no need to worry about plugging in your electronics. There is lots of bathroom storage and lots of bedroom dresser storage. The owners are delightful and helpful.
