One of the best spot on the island!
Our family visited Bonaire for Christmas this year. This is our 5th trip on the island and our second stay in this apartment. We rented this amazing place 3 years ago and we loved it. As our kids are getting older (11, 13 and 15 years old), we wanted to find a place spacious, affordable and that would guarantee the most amazing trip ever.
This apartment is situated on the the best spot on the island, just 5 min south of the airport.
- It has an unobstructed and clear direct view on the sunset (50 meters walk from the pool), perfect to see green flashes if your are lucky
- Coral reef in this region is outstanding. Our best diving/freediving spots on the island is just 1km away (Angel City and the shipwreck)
- About 10 minutes drive to the kiting or windsurfing spots
- Private pool area
- most amazing jogging road ever, between the pink salt lakes and the blue shoreline (did it everyday with my son)
- Amazing neighbourhood
- close to the grocery stores
As for the apartment, it was just perfect. Buddy and Judy are amazing owners. They made everything so easy for us. They also did a lot of significant improvements from our previous trip, like adding a washing machine (less clothing to bring!), and new top notch fridge and oven. When we had a question, they replied very fast.
We are scuba divers, freedivers and kiters. We will go back to Bonaire, and we rent again from Buddy&Judy anytime! This is THE place you want to go!
Thank you Michel! Your family is always welcome to stay with us. Hope you get back soon.
A Beauty in Bonaire
On the south side of the airport on the edge of town but definitely close to everything from groceries to any activities. Well established complex with friendly tenants that make it feel homey and secure. The apartment is spacious and stocked with all you need for cooking.
We didn't use them but there are TV's in the living room and bedrooms.
Courtyard is beautiful with a lovely swimming pool. A short walk to the ocean from the complex. We enjoyed our stay very much and would highly recommend this home away :-)
Thanks Brenda and Eric! We welcome you back soon!
Great place to stay!
We rented this condo for nine nights. Our daughter and granddaughters stayed a week. It was perfect, right next to the pool and close to the beach with ocean views from the upstairs balconies. Buddy and Judy made everything seamless. The condo was very clean and everything worked well, the kitchen was well equipped. There were lots of clean towels provided. Also the owner has a local contact if you would need anything. Great place!
Thanks Lynn & Steve!
A GOOD PLACE FOR R AND R
If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing place to escape, this is it. My experience was that the condo was most fitting for "the island attitude". My visit was in December and the winter we are having in the states this year, an "island attitude" was really welcomed. A breezy 80 degrees for the most part by day. The condo was very clean, neat, and comfortable. Also, all the necessities were there and in place (kitchen, linens, etc). The large swimming pool was almost like having your own private one there. I observed that there was a mix of permanent residents (including doctors) as well as having rental property available. I judge that as being a positive. Now as for Bonaire itself, it does provide a variety of activities along with its beauty. My variety along with relaxing, was snorkeling, bicycling, and dining at a different neat restaurant each evening. The water was beautiful everywhere, but my favorite place to observe it was at Lac Bay where all the windsurfers were doing their thing. Now in conclusion, I would recommend this unit and Bonaire for those who want to do nothing but relax as well as for the activity junkies. It offers something for everyone.
Many thanks again for staying with us. We hope you come back again soon!
I was quite amazed at the review given on this property prior to my arrival. I am a return guest & having stayed here on numerous occasions wondered what was going on.
We arrived to a spotlessly clean villa. Fresh linens, towels, etc. Found everything in working order, stove, etc
The couple of days we just hung around the place doing as little as possible, there was minimal noise from the construction. The other days we were off exploring, so if there was construction noise, we didn't hear it. lol
We called the "guard dogs" Mutt & Jeff. They would come in & visit & we kept a bowl of water out front for them. From previous stays @ LBR27, the dogs only bark when there are strangers on the property (mostly at night) or should a stray donkey visit.
The property manager is awesome. When I accidentally locked us out, she stopped what she was doing & was there in minutes to get us back in.
I have spoken to the iguana, who I named Orpheus, Oppie for short, about finding another place to poop & the pool area has been clean since.
I have traveled the Caribbean for years & love all of the places I have stayed on various islands. LBR 27 is more like a home than a rental property. I feel certain for anyone new to Bonaire, or even for those who have been coming here for years, not only is this property a great value, but it's a great "home" away from home.
You, your family and friends are always welcome to stay at our place. Please come back again soon.
If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing vacation DO NOT rent here!
When we arrived at the villa the stove top, oven and water were not working! Through emails we were instructed "HOW TO" turn everything on ourselves. We had to bring all the patio furniture out of the storage area as well. Sorry, but we were on vacation and shouldn't be asked to do this. Although there was a "property manager" to contact with problems, the problems reported were never fixed while we were there (i.e. broken a/c and oven, a refrigerator that made a constant loud noise, and a huge ant problem). There were barking dogs (belonged to an owner there) and construction taking place; constant beeping of construction vehicles. The pool was not cared for and Iguana poop remained at the pool our entire stay. It was a very disappointing experience. Bonaire is beautiful but this place is not!!!! I do not recommend it. Spend your money some place else it will be worth it.
Had we known your expectations for your 3 3/4 day stay in addition to your extremely low budget, we would have suggested other places for you to contact for accommodations. We have never had someone stay such a short time and complain so much (no bad reviews since we bought in 1997). We are fortunate to have several repeat guests that stay for as long as a month at a time so we must be doing some things right. Unfortunately, we are unable to control nearby construction, neighbor's dogs and native wildlife behavior. We hope that you managed to see and enjoy beautiful Bonaire between the constant emails and calls to our manager. We have addressed the air conditioner problem and our refrigerator is now level and not making the noise.
