Die Lage ist Top! – The location is top!

the location is top

Wir haben 9 Tage im Appartement verbracht! Sehr gem√ľtlich eingerichtet! Die Kommunikation mit Marji war schnell, freundlich und unkompliziert. Unsere W√ľnsche sind erf√ľllt worden. Ein sp√§terer Check-out war problemlos m√∂glich. Obwohl das Appartement in der N√§he des Flughafens liegt, ist kein Flugl√§rm vorhanden. Die Lage ist Top! 5 min mit dem Auto zur Stadt. Die Tauchschule ist auch zu empfehlen !!! Wir empfehlen Marji als Gastgeberin weiter! Vielen Dank f√ľr alles!

We spent 9 days in the apartment! Very comfortably furnished! The communication with Marji was fast, friendly and uncomplicated. Our wishes have been fulfilled. A later check-out was easily possible. Although the apartment is located near the airport, there is no aircraft noise. The location is top! 5 min by car to the city. The diving school is also recommended !!! We recommend Marji as host! Many thanks for everything!

absolutely perfect for our stay

absolutely perfect for our stay

This place was absolutely perfect for our stay on the island. It was clean and check-in was easy. We really appreciated the screened-in balcony as we could hang out there without the mosquitos trying to crash the party. This also allowed us to keep the bedroom door open and had a great island breeze through the night, (comfortable bed, by the way). The kitchen was well equipped and the apartment is close to town and a great super market. Marji filled us in on that tip right away along with so many other suggestions and ideas regarding Bonaire. She was really quick in communication responses and honestly, one of the nicest hosts we have had the pleasure of renting from. We recommend this place to all guests looking to enjoy all that Bonaire has to offer.

a wonderful breezy retreat

breezy retreat

Marji’s apartment was a wonderful, breezy retreat from the hot sun of Bonaire. It was a pleasure to cook in the open kitchen and look out the windows. The pool is cleaned every day and not crowded. Div’Ocean is a well run dive shop with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. It takes less than a 3 minute walk downstairs to get there. Marji was very responsive and gave us a lot of good local information before arriving. We would definitely stay in her apartment again. Highly recommended.

Enjoyed Every Minute

enjoyed every minute

We thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay in Bonaire. The apt and its location were perfect for us, being close to the airport, beaches, beach clubs and supermarkets. The access to the resort next door was also a big plus for us and our children. Marji’s kind and accurate communication was also very much appreciated for us first time visitors to this wonderfull island a long way from home! Big thumbs up for this place and highly recommended for future visitors.

The Balcony Hammock was Perfect

balcony hammock was perfect

This apartment was much larger than we’d expected with a spacious common area and bedroom. The rooms were very clean and well-equipped for visitors. Full kitchen (with nearby grocery stores) made it easy for us to eat some meals at home. The wonderful cross breezes in this top-floor unit gave us welcome respite from the heat and humidity, and the balcony hammock was perfect for napping. Terrific location just south of downtown and a 5 minute drive from the airport. We would stay here again and thank Marji for her great hospitality.

Marji is a perfect host, we communicate easily from Italy and she speaks a very good Italian! The apartment is cozy and well organized, what we’ll miss the most will be the sunset from the patio!

  • Guest Giovanna from Italy for a stay in Blue View in January 2017 (booked and reviewed on AirBnb)

All that we hoped for and more.

great kitchen

This apartment was all that we hoped for and more. It truly is breezy! Due to the cross ventilation, we never even turned on the A/C! Being on the canal was great – I enjoyed the splash when the Pelicans did their diving for fish. The location was close enough to town, but was quiet too. When we had a question, Marji responded extremely promptly. We would happily return to this apartment again.

  • guests Jenna and husband for a stay in Breezy Loft in March 2017

We had a great (4adults) dive vocation in Bonaire! This apartment is quiet and has a great location. The Div’Ocean dive shop 1 min away! The apartment was clean and kitchen had everything for cooking. We did not have any problems in our 7 days stay. I would recommend this place!

WOW ….. not to say that perfect vacation existed…. where to begin…. first off Thank you to Marji for beeing the perfect host. The condo is clean and exactly as the pictures on the site…. if not more to say better in site ! As a first on air bnb… I would definitly recommand Marji’s condo to anybody and every one who would like class, clean and professional experience. Marji will go out of her way to make sure that her condo in Bonaire will be your second home away from home as Air BnB propose and swears by.

Great service, outstanding support and tips about the island

THANKS A LOT!! Great service, outstanding support and tips about the island…. We really appreciated your kindness!!¬†Marji was extremely supportive in every way – very short response time and a lot of very helpful tips about the island, rental cars and windsurfing, great communication, allowed very late check-out which made our last day a lot easier, facilitated a smooth check-in even though unfortunately she wasn’t on the island herself the day of our arrival …. Thanks Marji for being such a great host! The flat is beautifully located with view over one of the canals and within walking distance to the quiet town of Kralendjik. Description and photos are very accurate.

Snorkeling/windsurfing/boating/horseback-riding/hiking/flamingo-watching/donkey-feeding adventure!

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

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!).

  • guest Nobuko for a stay in Sunny Yellow in August 2016 with kids

Perfect apartment for us!

Perfect apartment for us!

We stayed here for 2 weeks this spring and it was perfect for us.

The apartment is very spacious and loaded with extras: screened in porch overlooking the waterway (perfect for enjoying your morning coffee!) a fully equipped kitchen, all linens including beach towels (and folding beach chairs,) comfortable furniture, reliable wi-fi and a cell phone for our use, already pre-loaded with minutes!

We never used the AC because having the windows and front door open provided a cooling breeze. Marji is a wonderful host, easy to work with and very accommodating. We needed flippers for snorkeling and she loaned us what she had. My husband is a windsurfer and she even gave him a few pointers (she is an excellent windsurfer!)

Great location, a very good restaurant right across the road, and a couple more just a short walk away. You can even walk to town if you so desire. Will definitely stay here again or in any other property she has on the island.

  • guest Keith from Illinois for a stay in Blue View – September 2016 (booked and reviewed through Airbnb)

One of the best experiences!

balcony hammock was perfect

This was one of the best experiences! Wonderful accommodations and a great location on the island.

The condo is roomy and has all the appliances and comfy furniture to make us feel right at home. The kitchen is great for cooking and we were able to save a bunch of money by doing a lot of the cooking ourselves as the island has a very nice and cheap set of grocery stores.

The dive shop was wonderful and offers a great discount to anyone staying with Marji. There are lots of dive operations on the island and I would choose this group again, discount or no. This is a fantastic bnb at a great cost! Highly recommended!

  • guests Kevin and Rachel for a stay in Breezy Loft in May 2016 (booked and reviewed through Airbnb)

We have stayed with Marji several times now. The apartment is very spacious and clean with nice views. The trade winds keep the unit refreshed and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped. We were here for windsurfing and snorkeling and had a great time at both. Thanks for another lovely stay Marji!

My wife and I took our honeymoon...

My wife and I took our honeymoon in Bonaire and had a great stay at this studio apartment. The apartment worked out perfectly for us. The location was incredibly convenient as we chose not to rent a car during our stay. It was just a short walk to town, to the grocery store, to the beach or to any number of dive shops. There is a good restaurant, Joe’s Grillhouse, right across the street from the Caribbean Court. They had fresh catch of the day which we enjoyed. We took Marji’s advice on renting scooters one day from the Plaza Hotel next door to drive around the southern part of the island and that was a real highlight of our trip. Marji is very professional. She was quick to respond and offer suggestions to any questions we had leading up to the trip. Upon our arrival she met us, showed us the apartment and gave us local advice. She even had a phone we could use and put credit on which came in handy when we decided to book an island tour midway through our trip and when we needed to call for a cab to the airport on our departure. All in all we had a great stay in at the studio apartment and we highly recommend it for travelers to Bonaire.

  • guest Daniel for a stay in February 2016 booked and reviewed through airbnb for a stay in Teal Studio

Location is like a dream – Everything about our stay here was excellent.

This apartment is quiet and has a great location

Absolutely perfect! Everything about our stay here was excellent. The house clean. Well-equipped. Bed great. Location is like a dream. Right next-door to a beautiful beach open to the public. The hostess was kind prompt and full of great information. The island of Bonaire is beautiful. Best diving/snorkling I’ve ever experienced. On a personal note we fell in love with Bonaire and want to buy a condo in the same apartment complex!

  • guest Julie for a stay in January 2016 booked and reviewed through airbnb

Balcony with breezes… ahhh

the location is top

Really enjoyed our stay. Marji was so nice and easy going.

The apt is very clean, bright and equipped for simple meals. Enjoyed the private balcony and salt water pool. We walked to beach across from airport (20 min) which is really very nice with snorkling… Try the food cart there for their amazing fish sandwiches and sangria.

We also rented a 2 person scooter from the Plaza resort which is right next door $75 for 3 days!

This is a lovely place for those trying to avoid fancy resorts and just simply enjoy the beauty on Bonaire.

  • guest Sharon for a stay in January 2016 booked and reviewed through airbnb

Nice and affordable place to stay.

Nice and affordable place to stay

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.

Hele goede tijd gehad!

Hele goede tijd gehad, fijn schoon appartement met heerlijk bed. Rustig en veilig. Zwembad ook groot genoeg om meer dan een paar slagen achter elkaar te zwemmen. Een punt van kritiek zijn de bouwwerkzaamheden aan de overkant waardoor tijdens werkuren overlast van geluid en stof.  Ruim appartement, geweldig bed! Fijne badkamer.

We couldn’t have asked for more!

We couldn't have asked for more!

We booked a last minute vacation to Bonaire (less than 24 hours). Marji was quick to respond to our inquiries and confirm the availability of her apartment in Kralendijk. The location is perfect….the unit is minutes away from the airport and downtown.

There is a dive shop, Div Ocean, located on the premises which was amazingly convenient.

The top floor unit has an open floor plan with a great layout which allows the wind to blow through. The AC saved us as we are not accustomed to the heat and humidity of the area. The amenities in the kitchen and bathroom are top notch and really made us feel like we were at a home away from home. We couldn’t have asked for more!

Immaculately clean…

enjoyed every minute

The time spent at Marji’s condo was absolute paradise, it was immaculately clean, well kept and fully stocked with all of the necessities.

Marji was great to deal with, always responded promptly, gave us several tips of where to go and what to do.

The screened in patio is perfect, I enjoyed nearly every meal on it and with the constant breeze keeping us cool it was hard to leave.

Also if you keep a watchful eye you can see fish jumping in the water below.

First time to Bonaire and we were fortunate to find this amazing place!

This apartment is quiet and has a great location

“Breezy Bonaire РWonderful stay in the Blue View appartment

First time to Bonaire and we were fortunate to find this amazing place! Marji the owner was very prompt with replies and offering information for all our questions. It was a real pleasure to deal with her.
The apartment is a very spacious one bedroom unit on the 3rd floor. Very clean and well maintained.
Marji was away while we were there and she had her manager Marie meet us at the apartment and show us around. She left us with a cell phone with a calling card in case we needed anything.

It is just as advertised on the Breezy Bonaire website and had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. We really enjoyed the completely screened in balcony and spent all our time out there when we were in the apartment.

The hammock was perfect for relaxing in after diving. It was the perfect setting overlooking the waterway and we enjoyed having our breakfast there before heading out for our dives. We also got to cook in some nights and dinner and drinks were always consumed out on this great balcony.

The front door also has a screen door and when open the breeze going through the apartment was amazing!

Marji had recommended Div’Ocean for diving right on location. Great dive op with great people. It was out the door, grab some tanks and go dive! Easy breezy! After dives there are rinse tanks and they will store your gear for you overnight. No need to lug it up to the apartment.

It was a really nice experience and we very highly recommend staying here.

Nice apartment, spacious and clean. Has a good working air conditioning, is secured at night, with enough parking space, lots of kitchen tools and enough towels. For divers handy, a diveshop downstairs. Marji and Marie even left a small mobile in case you need any assistance or have questions. I rented a pick-up truck which is very handy for your diving material. I like to come again.

  • guest Thomas for a stay in March 2015 -reviewed and booked through Airbnb

Very nice!

Very nice

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.

La mejor elección de estadía que pude haber hecho.

cassandra guest review

El departamento es de muy buenas dimensiones, consta de dos dormitorios, dos ba√Īos perfectamente equipados ambos, todo en una √ļnica planta, nada de escaleras, tiene una cocina-comedor completa que incluye lavavajillas y horno microondas, heladera con freezer sus pisos son de m√°rmol, puede albergar c√≥modamente 4 a 6 personas, las fotos que muestra la publicaci√≥n son las del apartamento, absolutamente todo funciona bien, sus balcones son un placer para tomar un cafe en un ambiente relajado.

En todas las ventanas y puertas tiene mosquitero para disfrutar de la brisa sin prender el aire acondicionado.
La ubicación es sumamente conveniente cercana al aeropuerto ,cercana a la playa, cercana a cantidad de centros de buceo, cercana al centro de Bonaire, los supermercados están varios a pocas cuadras también.
Es perfectamente posible manejarse para todo en bicicleta, si se debe pagar un taxi por ejemplo al aeropuerto a la llegada o salida 10 dólares.
Pero esto No es lo mejor, en nuestro caso, llegamos 2 horas antes del horario previsto, despu√©s de un viaje agotador, pensando en que como tantas otras veces en hoteles 5 estrellas con Lobys imponentes y habitaciones microsc√≥picas, √≠bamos a tener que esperar, no fue as√≠ el departamento estaba absolutamente impecable ya desde mucho antes de lo acordado inmediatamente Mayorie nos entrega un tel√©fono celular local con 3 d√≥lares pre cargados para llamadas, en la alacena hab√≠a cafe, az√ļcar, condimentos varios, aceite, los ba√Īos completamente equipados con dent√≠frico, champo, toallas todo para que al llegar uno pueda tomar un momento y relajarce.
Wifi sin problemas, funciona perfectamente en todo el departamento.
Algo también muy importante Marjorie esta a muy pocos metros y siempre bien dispuesta.
Recomendación: reserven con anticipación, lo descripto anteriormente no es lo mas frecuente.

I highly recommend the condo

absolutely perfect for our stay

Stayed over New Year’s 2014-15. Marji was great – accommodated a last minute booking for us, found a pack-n-play for my 20-month-old, and also set us up with a rental car when the whole island seemed to be sold out! The unit is near the airport and the beach, and a short walk to town. The screened in porch with a hammock in the back, overlooking the canal, was our favorite! We spent a ton of time back there and my daughter loved it. The unit is very spacious and clean, with nice appliances, and newer furnishings. The a/c in the bedroom was great. The complex has a pool, and is right by the Plaza where you can pay to use beach chairs. Overall, this was a great trip, and I highly recommend the condo. Thanks Marji!¬†¬†What Dave loved about your listing:¬†

Spectacular Condo in Great Location next to Excellent Dive Shop

Marji is very responsive to all your questions and needs. I also found her very easy to deal with.

We stayed 2 weeks Nov/Dec 2014. The apartment is a great location close to everything but not too close.

We were there to dive and used Div’Ocean in the same complex and was perfect match. It is close to the airport but really never heard the planes coming and going.

The apartment is extremely clean and tidy and lots of room. The kitchen area is stocked with everything you need to create breakfast/lunch/dinner. My husband prefers to eat dinner out and there are good places very close.

The clothes washer was a great plus. Marji has a limited vehicle rental available for good prices. We had the red truck which was truly a local truck which was nice at dive sites. The red truck is not for someone looking for a fancy vehicle it is a basic local used truck and we only recommend it for the adventurous. We were happy with it though and it was a great price.

I HIGHLY recommend Marji’s unit and using Div’Ocean for your dive shop while in Bonaire.

  • guest Liz for a stay in November – December 2014

From the moment we got there we knew we struck gold!

El apartamento es impecable

Near Perfect ! 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.Thank you”

Marji was very helpful in getting us situated as this was our first visit to Bonaire. We found it very easy to get around in Bonaire and felt very safe wherever we went.

If you are thinking about a nice getaway and want to avoid the big resorts I would recommend Bonaire and one of the nice clean apartments that Marji has to offer.

Perfect For A Couple Who Prefer To Cook Most Of Our Meals

September Anniversary Trip –

We had a great 1 week stay at Marji’s Caribbean Court condominium, which was perfect for a couple who prefer to cook most of our meals instead of dining out. The kitchen had all the necessary cookware and amenities, and Marji even provided us with a charcoal grill so we could grill fresh fish!

The condominium is conveniently located and there is even an excellent on-site dive shop (Div’ Ocean). There was plenty of room to spread out, and the furniture was very comfortable! Prior to our trip, we had several questions about our stay, as this was our first trip to Bonaire. Marji was very quick to respond, and this attentiveness continued when we arrived. Both Marji, and her assistant helped to make our stay a very pleasurable one!

We will definitely return!

We will most definitely stay with Marji and in Blue View when we visit again.

Beautiful Bonaire!

Beautiful Bonaire

My husband and I were able to stay at this condo for a full month and loved it! It is centrally located and easy access to downtown and the beach through the neighbouring resort.¬† It also has the added benefit of a pool which was great to relax at after a day of diving.¬† Being there a month, it was great to have an in-suite washing machine to keep up on laundry and then Bonaire’s breeze to dry everything on the clothesline on the balcony.¬† The onsite dive shop Div-Ocean was a great benefit too – easy to access our tanks whenever we wanted and store our gear right after our dive.¬† This property was perfect for quiet and still close to grocery stores and restaurants.

The listing very accurately reflects the property.  This condo was clean and bright.  Marji met us upon arrival and ensured we had everything we needed to get settled in and comfortable Рa pleasure to deal with.  We will return.

Wonderful Apartment and Owner!

Clean, neat and quiet

We just got home today from our amazing first trip to Bonaire. I stumbled upon Marji’s listing and couldn’t have been happier. The apartment was clean and roomy. Marji was very responsive to my emails both before we arrived and during our stay. Everything was just as promised and it was half the price of the larger resorts. The dive shop of the premises is fantastic, as is Easy One rentals. Both offer discounts for Marji’s guests and couldn’t be easier to work with. We will definitely stay here again!

Wonderful property!

Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others

We spent two weeks at Marji’s beautiful condo at the Caribbean Courts in Bonaire. This is a very large, modern, one bedroom on the third floor overlooking the canal. It is a short walk through the Plaza resort to the beach and about a mile walk into town. The interior of the condo is very well appointed with just about everything you need for an enjoyable stay. Great wifi, cable TV, a good selection of books, a cell phone, a well equipped kitchen and a large screened in balcony. Marji lives on site so if there are any problems she is just a short walk away.

A perfect place to stay for a diving vacation.

Nice and affordable place to stay

This was the 2nd visit to Bonaire for my wife and me. The first time we stayed at a B&B;, but this time we wanted to have our “own” place where we could cook and prepare some of our meals ourselves. The place is only 3-4 minutes from the airport and Marji met us there at 5 in the morning, and she was very helpful and answered all the questions we have about the place and the island in general.

The apartment is in a nice and quiet complex and definitely not a tourist place. You can hear some air traffic, but that is not that frequent and didn’t bother us at all. They have a dive shop on site that we used and that was convenient and they gave us a 15% discount on air since we stayed there. The apartment is about a mile from “downtown”, so we had no problem walking into town for dinner.

The apartment was nice, clean and felt very open and light. The balcony with the table and chairs was nice for breakfast or dinner, with a peaceful view over the canal. The place had a washing machine and a full kitchen, with coffee maker, blender (Margaritas with the local Tequila) etc.

Overall we had a great stay in Bonaire and the freedom of your own place is great. We would highly recommend this apartment.

The perfect condo!

The perfect condo!

We spent three weeks in March on Bonaire and were lucky to stay in this condo for a couple of days. The host was very kind and helpful, the apartment is perfect for a couple and has everything you need for a prolonged stay. The location is good, close to the city center and only 15 minutes car ride from Sorobon beach. We very much enjoyed our stay there!

  • Guest Nans¬†from Berlin on 4/11/2013 for a stay in March 2013

Can’t wait until my next stay!

Everything it Promises... fully equipped and totally screened so no mosquitos!

I travel to Bonaire at least once per year for windsurfing and try to stay at one of Marji’s condos in Caribbean Court every chance I get. On some trips I’ve missed my chance as a result of my late planning since she tends to be booked due to the quality and value of her rental units. This condo was spotlessly clean, well maintained, and tastefully decorated. The high quality linens and cute European style dishes made me feel right at home. The condo is perfectly located close to town but not so close that it’s noisy. I really enjoyed the cool breeze and the view of the waterway that runs inland to the condo complex. I definitely recommend all of Marji’s rental units and she’s a joy to work with. Can’t wait until my next stay!

Great Condo + Awesome Owner+ Exceptional Value = Excellent Stay!

Great service, outstanding support and tips about the island

What a great stay in Bonaire at Marji’s Caribbean Court Condo! We have been to Bonaire before, and usually reserve a private home, but it was not available for our travel dates. This was only my second time booking a property through VRBO, so I was a little apprehensive, but Marji made it so easy. She returns emails promptly, is accessible by cell phone while you are on the island, and is eager to help you in any way she can. Just an all-around great person. She is even an expert windsurfer who gives lessons. She had us up on the boards and making turns within an hour!

The condo was just as pictured and described. We usually get a house simply because my husband and I have stressful jobs in which we’re surrounded by people all the time. And, we cook on vacation. We were amazed at just how quiet the condo complex was – very little in & out traffic, we only saw our neighbors a few times (and heard them less), and usually had the saltwater pool to ourselves. The kitchen is fully stocked and had everything we needed for cooking. With the recent opening of the excellent Van den Tweel market, in fact, we found ourselves so overstocked with food that we only ate out twice.

We most enjoyed sitting out on the deck, having coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night. We saw the otter that has taken up residence there, as well as the rays.

Having airco in the bedroom was a major plus. No sleeping on damp sheets like on other islands we’ve visited. The airco plus the mattress overlays made for very comfortable sleeping arrangements.

Right on-site is the fantastic Div’Ocean dive operation. This is far and away the best dive operation we’ve experienced on the island. Exceptional customer service, fantastic dive masters, and excellent equipment (rental gear and boat).

Highly recommended! Email me for questions

Light, airy, everything we needed!

This was such a nice rental. Everything was as pomised. The kitchen was fully equipped, including little often forgotten touches like dish liquid and plastic wrap. We really enjoyed our time here. The unit was close to everything. The pool was very nice and open til 10 at night. Right next door was a nice beach with good snorkeling. Especiall for the price this couldn’t be beat.

This was a really great place to stay!

breezy retreat

This was a really great place to stay.

It’s walking distance to downtown (although a bit of a long walk).

The main room is very large and includes a full kitchen, dining room table, and living room area. The balcony has a great hammock for afternoon naps. The bedroom is large. Overall, more than enough space for a couple, but it’s nice to spread out, especially when you have several sets of clothes hanging out to dry at one time. If you open the doors and windows you get a big breeze that comes through the apartment – we never used the AC.

The only down sides were that it’s on the third floor so you have steps, but that wasn’t a problem for us and contributed to the great breezes. Also, the hot water in the shower ran out really quick, but since the weather was warm this wasn’t a problem. The owner, Marji, was very helpful and accomodating. We flew in really early and she let us leave our bags with her until the apartment was ready.

  • Guest Jen in Cincy¬†on 3/2/2012 for a stay in 2/1/2012

Comfortable, well equipped, excellent value, near everything!

Super clean, quiet, bright and spacious

We stayed three weeks in this great one bedroom apartment overlooking the canal and had a terriffic time. There is a great dive shop on site in Caribbean Court, the Plaza Resort with good restaurant, pool bar and beach are right next door and you are only one mile from the heart of Kralendijk, with great dive spots north and south of the apartment.

The apartment is fully equipped for long term visits, the bedroom air conditioned and includes mosquito netting. We were able to make an affordable vacation by eating in and you don’t need to over pack because the apartment is equipped with a washer and dryer, something you don’t find in many rentals.

Marji also includes many helpful reference items re: grocery shopping, restaurants and tour/sight seeing opportunities. I definitely recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a long term place to stay on Bonaire. We found this apratment on Vrbo and owner is very prompt in responding to inquiries.

We Felt Like We Were At Home…

Great service, outstanding support and tips about the island

We just returned from spending a week in the condo. Very comfortable, we felt like we were at home. It’s located close to everything in Kralendijk but in a very quiet location.

The owner Marji was very helpful with information about the island.

We’ll definitely stay here on our next visit to the island.

The perfect place to stay on Bonaire!

great kitchen

This apartment could not have been more perfect for our weeklong stay in Bonaire, its truly an amazing deal! Very large and spacious with wonderful decks and cross-breezes running through the apartment, we barely needed the air conditioner! The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed to cook our own meals and enjoy them on the back deck overlooking the canal. The pool for the complex was great and such a treat to have right outside the apartment. Marji is wonderful and was so helpful in answering all the questions we had about Bonaire and providing great tips on things to do. One of my favorite things about this place was the location – equally close to great snorkel/dive sites on the southern part of the island, beautiful Lac Bay on the east and the sites in town and north of town. Also, close enough to town and shopping to be convenient but far enough away to feel less touristy and so much more quiet and peaceful. Really just perfect! We hope to be back soon!

We Recommend It!

Light, airy, everything we needed!

Me, my wife and my daughter spent an almost 2 weeks vacation in Bonaire, we stayed al Marjorie’s place which is conveniently located near by the airport and also to the city. In order to save money and get to know the island you must rent a transportation mean, it could be a car, we did at Bonaire Rental and it was great, you can also rent a scooter or a dutch bike its fun. Marjorie’s apartment was nice and a good size for a one bedroom apartment, it was on the second floor so you have a view from balcony. You have what you need to do your own cooking but you also have good restaurants in town. If you like windsurf ask Marjorie she can give you a very good advice and train in that sport. We had a great time and Marjorie was nice during our stay. We recommend it.

  • Guest Guillermo ¬†from Bogata ¬†Date of Stay: 01/01/12

Great Place To Stay!

Wonderful Stay Excellent amenities!

The accommodations were clean, well furnished and cared-for. Marji, the owner, was extremely attentive. Even brought me a blanket in the event the air conditioner was too effective (most places in Bonaire have provided me with light sheets only, as a not-too-subtle way to promote energy efficiency). The unit is very well located, close to town core, but in a quiet area. I would definitely return. In fact, I was somewhat reluctant to write this, hoping to keep this gem of a place my own little secret.

  • Guest Avi from Vancouver Island, British Columbia on 1/6/2012 for a stay in 12/1/2011

This is where I will be staying from here on out!

Would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others

This was 2nd trip to Bonaire and plan on going yearly. This is where i will be staying from here on out. Place was very clean and organized. Very Very large condo and the air will freeze you. Love the constant breeze blowing thru the house in the day needed no ac. Thanks again Marji!

Perfect Spot in Paradise…

Perfect Spot in Paradise

I must say, quite few things impressed us with this deal. First the owner. Over the months she responded to our each and every question very quickly, in detail and made us feel comfortable with out decision. This was our first Vrbo booking and as one can imagine we were bit nervous. Once we arrived, the location made us dropped our jaw. The unit is right on the water. It can not get any better. Also all the contents are thought about and in perfect condition. There was even a binder full of instructions, pointers, ideas and brochures.

We were on a week long scuba trip. We were supposed to do hard core 4-5+ dives a day. But the apartment and location was so nice that, we decided to take advantage and enjoy even more by spending late afternoons there or in the Plaza just next door.

The details are also very impressing.. For example, the cell phone left for the use of tenants, the directory already had owner’s and few other critical numbers in it. The wireless net connection was working perfect and we ended up using G-phone and Skype for most Christmas and New year voice chatter. There was even an icebox in the house to use during our day dive trips.

We are already planning our future trips and cannot wait to be there soon. We left safe and comfortable and would recommend to other lucky future tenants.
