This fully equipped, centrally located and safe apartment at Caribbean Court Bonaire is perfect for couples and small families; offering you the privacy and atmosphere you need to relax and the personal service of an owner who cares about your vacation.

• Swimming pool with kid's pool

• Next door to resort hotel with beach, restaurants, activities like kayak rental, snorkeling, BBQ night, etc and bordered on the other side by the new chain resort that has finally come to Bonaire. (We are located in a SAFE, resort area.)

For divers this apartment is perfect! Our on-site Boutique Scuba Center, Div' Ocean Bonaire is located right at your doorstep. Tanks are picked up right here, on the premises. Our guests enjoy 15% discount on air/nitrox packages. Div'ocean is all about personal service. They specialize in Guided Dives, Night Dives and Boat Dives. In case you want to check them all out, two other great dive shops, Tropical Divers Toucan Diving at the Plaza Hotel are both within a 5 minute walk or 1 minute drive as is the very well known Caribe Inn.

For windsurfers we are an easy 10 minute drive from Sorobon Beach (Lac Bay) where you will find the only two windsurf schools and rental shops on the island along with some of the best windsurfing conditions and windsurfers in the world!

The apartment is also a great choice for kiters going to Atlantis Beach each day. A big advantage for both kite surfers and windsurfers is that since the apartment is South of downtown you do not need to drive through Kralendijk to reach your surf destination for the day. Lots of our guests come home for an afternoon siesta between windsurf sessions. The location so close to Lac Bay makes that possible.

The apartment is located less than one mile from downtown Kralendijk. We are also only 5 to 10 minutes walking to some of the best restaurants on the island. Joe's Grillhouse is almost directly across the street and Sebastian's is just around the corner walking toward Kralendijk.

A rental car is HIGHLY recommended 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, dishwasher; coffee maker; And of course every utensil you'll need and plenty of dishes.

A European washing machine in the apartment is free for you to use for light washing of your things while here. (Towels and clothes dry on a clothes rack 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 for you to 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 activities and events like barbecue night on Thursdays, salsa dancing, rentals of kayaks and stand up paddle boards, snorkel gear, etc. They also have an on-site dive shop which is ideal for guests who want do dive but not drive.

The apartment will be cleaned before and after your stay. Additional cleanings can be arranged upon request. We 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 or more families traveling together, we do have some options for larger apartments in the same complex and group discounts if you rent more than one unit at the same time. To see other apartments go to owner profile and click on "see all my rental listings." or go to www.breezybonaire.com

About Marji Keith (owner)

Marji lives part year on Bonaire and part year in Madison Wisconsin, USA. She spent almost 9 years living full time on the island, raising three kids there. She has also lived in New York City and Italy. Marji owns a total of three rental units in Bonaire, all at Caribbean Court. She speaks fluent Italian, pretty good but rusty French and some Papiamento, Dutch and Spanish.

Marji Keith (owner) purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Marji Keith (owner) chose Bonaire

Location, Location, Location. Marji bought these (three) properties after having lived in New York, Milan and Rome. She was used to living in apartments, walking to get places and enjoying the company of a neighbor or two. Caribbean Court couldn't be further away from those big cities - but owning a gorgeous apartment in walking distance to shops and restaurants made the transition from big city to small Caribbean Island just a little easier.

What makes this townhome unique

The location is quiet! No street noise with the canal on one side and just our small parking lot and swimming pool on the other. The second floor location of the apartment makes it very safe. Mosquito screens, great trade winds on the terrace, - this one bedroom apartment is truly adorable and affordable - the perfect place to come home to after a day out diving, windsurfing or exploring Bonaire. Extras like a washing machine for your clothes, designer linens and some unique artwork are unlikely to be found at other similarly priced rentals. The central location on the island means you have easy walking or driving access to everything Bonaire offers, including beaches, dive sites, windsurfing, kite surfing, restaurants and shops. OK - so we're biased - but we highly recommend it!

Great Place!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay - good, clean and ample room. A few minutes drive to downtown shops and restaurants and to several supermarkets.

Nice to dip in the pool at the end of the day, then sleep in the air-conditioned bedroom. Quiet.

Sit on the balcony and have morning coffee - dutch coffee - with a nice breeze coming from the waters.

In-room laundry machine a great convenience (especially since the airline lost our luggage!).

A relaxing place to stay, to rest and recover for the next days snorkeling/windsurfing/boating/horseback-riding/hiking/flamingo-watching/donkey-feeding adventure!

Nice and affordable place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had had a great holiday vacation. The place was exactly as described. Clean and in quiet area near nice resort and close to town. Marji was a super nice and very helpful host. We got a lot of good suggestions for places to see and things to do. She even gave our son some good windsurfing tips which helped him learn faster. The island is very layed back with fantastic windsurfing and snorkeling / scuba conditions. There are great restaurants and very good Duch supermarkets. The resort near the condo has a nice swimming and snorkeling beach with all amenities. Windsurfing is only 10 min. drive away. We can't wait to go back.

Bright and clean convenient appartment has everything I could want

  • 5 of 5

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.

Very nice.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Near perfect!

  • 5 of 5

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 one of the most central locations you will find on Bonaire. We are walking distance to town and only 4 minutes walk 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 literally 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!
