|Minimum Stay||6 - 7 nights|
Feel at home in Bonaire when you stay at our adorable townhouse. Comfortable, very pretty and priced right, we are directly on a peaceful inlet leading into the Caribbean Sea.
This apartment is a fantastic value as you have your own high speed internet connection, use of a cell phone, cable TV, washing machine for clothes, dishwasher, full kitchen, on-site parking, on-site dive shop, swimming pool and kid's pool, safe, water views, air conditioning, two minute walk to a great beach and much more.
For divers our on-site shop, Div' Ocean Bonaire is a an excellent choice and value. If you stay here you get 15% off air/nitrox shore dive packages. Two other great dive shops, Tropical Divers Toucan Diving at the Plaza Hotel are both within a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive.
For windsurfers we are about a 10 minute drive from Sorobon Beach where you will find the only two windsurf schools and rental shops on the island, Jibe City Bonaire and Bonaire Windsurf Place.
The apartment is located less than one mile from downtown Kralendijk. We are only 5 to 10 minutes walking to some of the best restaurants on the island. A rental car is HIGHLY recommended, however, because Bonaire offers so much to see and do outside of the downtown area.
Most of our guests rent an apartment rather than a hotel in part because they want to be able to prepare their own meals. With that in mind we've done our best to provide everything you need to eat in comfortably: Refrigerator; freezer; microwave/ convection oven combination; dishwasher; coffee maker; There is even a Braun electronic orange juice maker. And of course every utensil imaginable and plenty of dishes.
There is a washing machine in the apartment for light washing of your things while here. (towels and clothes dry in the sun outside on the terrace!)
Comfortable queen bed with mattress topper and air-conditioning in bedroom. Twin bed also with comfortable mattress topper in living room for a third guest. Smaller fold out daybed also available for a fourth guest. Beautiful patterned linens throughout come from designer John Robshaw, New York.
There are reading lights attached to the wall above the bed in the bedroom and behind the sofa in the living room so that you can cuddle up and catch up on your reading while relaxing at home.
The condominium complex Caribbean Court Bonaire has about 50 apartments. All apartments are owned privately. The resort is bordered on the south side by the oceanfront Plaza Hotel, where you may enjoy the beach, pool (small fee), dive shop, restaurant, grounds and other facilities. Plaza also offers movie night every Thursday under the stars, salsa dancing on Mondays, happy hour at the oceanfront bar every night, a kids program (while parents are out diving) and other activities for all ages.
The apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay. Additional cleanings can be arranged upon request. We currently live on-site and will be happy to help arrange any extras you are interested in and assist you in any way possible during your stay. (Ask about car or bike rental, windsurfing, diving, etc.)
For two families traveling together, we do have another similar, slightly larger condo in the same complex. The calender reflects the combined availability of the two apartments.

Marji is a landlord and windsurfing wondermom. She loves living year round on Bonaire.
Marji Keith (owner) purchased this townhome in 2005
I stayed in Marji's more budget-friendly appartment and it was my second time staying here. It's very roomy for a studio, very clean and easy to keep clean and everything is in good working condition. Good security and a short walk to the Plaza beach resort where you can take advantage of waterfront dining, snorkeling, sailing trips. Marji is very attentive and accomodating and great to deal with.
We stayed in Blue Loft and really enjoyed it. The unit has a separate bedroom and both bedroom and living room/kitchen are quite large. Being on the 3rd floor meant really nice breezes coming through the screened windows and sliding door which face onto the canal; I would imagine that units on the ground floor may have gotten warm at night without the 3rd floor breezes. Marji was great and the unit is very nicely outfitted with everything you could want for cooking and eating, and even a cell phone, little portable cooler and fold-up chairs. There is a balcony on the side opposite the canal and it faces inland. Its about a 10-15 minute walk to the south end of town but there are 2-3 good restaurants within a 2-5 minute walk before town; Joe's grill is good and just a 1-2 min walk down the road. It's a short 3-5 minute walk to the beach in front of the Plaza Resort hotel which is adjacent to this complex. The complex is safe and quiet.
Stayed 10 nights In the Blue View. From the moment we got there we knew we struck gold! Just the place for us....top floor (3), everything we needed and a dive shop on premises. We could live there quite comfortably and not have to purchase a thing. The breeze that blows through that apartment is amazing. In fact, we had to throttle it down with the sliders! Marji even provided a prepaid phone which we didn't use but was very reassuring to have along with us. The apartment is fairly close to the airport but planes don't fly in late at night so it was a non-issue. This place is QUIET....just what we needed and convenient to everything, diving, groceries, restaurants/shops, etc. We did not get to meet Marji as she was off-island but her communication with us was spot-on for everything. Hangers and drying rack for gear/clothing on the screened-in porch was a nice touch. A washing machine is in the apartment as well. The pool was lovely and completely vacant each time we used it. The grounds are kept up nicely.
The dive shop down stairs Div'Ocean is "top tier" as are the owners, Peter and Bianca. They also provide gear storage for free and a place to rinse gear when you are done for the day and access to tanks 24/7. For those wanting to go to Klein for the day, their dive boat is right there too. Just roll out of bed onto the boat!
It's just a combination of many things that make staying at the Blue View such a gem. Would we stay there again? You bet ya! We have found a home with Marji's Blue View.
This is the second time we have stayed with Marji. This time in a different apartment. The first place was great. No complaints. The second one had a Hammock! Best nites sleep ever. The Apartment was clean and extremely comfortable. It was great having a full kitchen with utensils. We will definitely stay with Marji every time we come to Bonaire.
We had a wonderful stay. Great snorkeling within ten minutes walking. There were turtles rising in the canal that we watched from the balcony. The pool was clean and the landscaping lovely. Or third floor apartment was really roomy, breezy, and the WiFi worked great.
Marji was so friendly and helpful--Thank You!
The location of the condo is ideal: away from the busy intersections of downtown & the cruise ship, but easy enough to get to them when you want. I HIGHLY recommend a car/scooter. There is no way to get to the beaches/diving without one.
My only disappointment was the lack of light in the stairwell as you approach the condo. I went out for dinners several nights and came back after sunset. It was difficult to see. Otherwise, very safe and quiet neighbors. I traveled alone and felt just fine. I would suggest the unit for singles or a couple. I would definitely return to Bonaire and rent from Marji again!
This is one of the most central locations you will find on Bonaire. We are walking distance to town and only 3 minutes to the nearest beach. With our onsite dive shop our scuba diving guests do not need to leave our parking lot to get their tanks - and the nearest dive site is practically next door. Windsurfers and Kite surfers will also find that we are located an easy drive from their respective beaches. Lac Bay and Kite Beach are both about 10 minutes away by car and and since we are south of the main town, Kralendijk you there are no worries about getting there quickly when the wind picks up!
