But will not be available until DECEMBER 03 of this year.
Right in town! best location on this island ! Right next to some condos that rent for LOTS MORE MONEY ! and they do not have direct access to the ocean.
However, no pets , no children. Not a place for them .
A rental car is not necessary here, as within two blocks is downtown Kralendijk, more than a dozen restaurants, and two dive shops with their own boats, so unless you re needing a car get back and forth from a place you are stuck paying too much for way out in the desert,, or absolutely needing to go shore diving at the extremes of the island, you may find this location appealing , and please tell me if the rental cars on Bonaire are cheap .
So, if you already booked somewhere else, good for you . Then while on the island, won't you visit me to check out the place for your NEXT time you come to Bonaire? Fact is , we have a high percentage of repeat visitors. You will spend hours online before your vacation, checking out places, and choosing one that you think may be the best for you . You cannot really be sure until you get here. So perhaps you should invest a few minutes in between dives to check me out for the next time, as long as you are on the island
Hello, I am offering the ENTIRE HOUSE, 3 bedroom, 2 bathrom in my oceanfront home IN KRALENDIJK where the action is .WALK TO TOWN!
Also, I can most likely pick you up at the airport for no extra charge, IF I am on the island ,but I cannot guarantee that if you book with INSEL AIR as they are highly unreliable , always delayed or cancelled something others may not do .
If you already booked with someone else, you may want to visit me to see what you can get NEXT year, and check out the super comfy AMERICAN PILLOWTOP QUEEN BED. Sure better than those flat Dutch slabs of material that some of the other homes have that even charge MORE!
Folks I do not have a pool out my back door - I have an entire ocean. Don't tell me you are coming to Bonaire to swim in a pool -get serious -you can do that at any motel in Maryland . Give me a break !
Here I can offer a cozy , room in a charming Antillean home, 1200 sq ft clean and tidy for 2 people max with one queen bed.. Air conditioning in the bedroom. Hot water shower. Wifi, and cable TV, all included. Also you can feed the local iguanas, but watch your fingers ! keep the birdbath full as there are lots of dirty birds, and enjoy the nature.
The ocean is across the road, out the back door 120 feet. I snorkel and swim there often. ( one of the best snorkeling on the island is right there). You can too . Dive shop a hundred yards down the road , and another a hundred yards up the road .
No pets, neither mine nor yours , and please no children .
Being right at the edge of town, walking distance close are many restaurants, . When I say walking distance I mean like really close. In less than 5 minutes ( walking backwards, blindfolded without a map , barefoot) you will be at the OTHER edge of town .
This property also available for a 6 month ( or longer) long term lease @ 1600 per month. In that case, utilities will be transferred to your name. Please check the immigration requirements . There is a limit to how long a foreigner may stay on the island .
Guess they don't want you to know certain things...
I offer you a 10 % discount with DIVE FRIENDS BONAIRE, which includes air/nitrox, daytime boats and courses.
As well I can get you a 10% discount with VOYAGER RENT A CAR. Ask me about that
Interaction with Guests
I positively do IF I am on the island at that time , If you are not spending all your time diving, I can take you on tour about the island . SOOOOOO much to see ABOVE the water line !
right in town. WALK to just about anything, including dive shops . 5 restaurants within two short blocks . Walk to the casino.
Be entertained when the cruise ships call !!!
Furniture may be different than what is in the photos
walk to so many things here. Places rent bicycles, autos, pickups and scooters
Other Things to Note
AVOID INSEL AIR.
Unless you love waiting in airports for delayed or cancelled flights which is chronic with them, fly with the big boys: DELTA UNITED ARKE KLM
No smoking, of course. I have no pets. Just ask that you be conservative with the utilities NO pets or children. Not a place for them .
This place is awesome. Close to the center of Kralendijk, close to the seafront with a gorgeous view. Excellent location for your stay in (website hidden) has been very friendly in providing useful information to make our stay as pleasant as possible and although he was on holidays during the period, he had ensured that some of his friends picked us up from the airport and brought us back on our return.
The house itself is nicely located and with the double doors on either side of the building creates a pleasant airflow when opened, something you will really appreciate once you are there !
We enjoyed Bonaire and would recommend the place to anybody.
JP was a great host...everything was ready for us when we arrived. We ended up renting his 1-bedroom apt instead of the room and it was comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. The area is quiet and well located within walking distance to downtown and close to a number of dive shops. We would definitely stay with JP again!
my son & i stayed 9 (email hidden) 's apt for 2, at Blue Bonaire apts; JP gets an outstanding rating, because the accomodations were truely represented,most (website hidden) as a host was accomodating, knowledgeable, honest with integrity.
he was kind enough to meet us at airport at 11 pm & return us at 8 am day of
departure 9 days later. he assured us that he would back us up in any emergency,
very importent for us.
he had just done some renovation at (website hidden)'s location to beaches is good & is next to a good rest. JOE'S GRILLHOUSE, a 15 min walk to town we wound up renting
(website hidden) gave us a tour of the island, & recco rest,
aurents. even took us to a locel eatery, ordering ln Papiementau.
we liked to snorkel at Klein Bonaire because it's beaches had a little more sand
& easier access thru natural cuts in fhe reef. also GOOD RETURN WATER TAXI
wold let you leave your dry things on the beach, get back onthe boat & they would
then motor back south & you would jump in & drift snorkel with the current up North
to the entry site, which was nice because it saved to having to walk South if you
always wanted to snorkel with the current
JP gets a 5 star rating from us, as does AIRBNB
Couldn't ask for a better host than JP! He gave me useful advise on making air connections to the island and picked me up at the airport for no charge. The house is located directly across from the water about a block from downtown. The home is spacious, very clean, and fully equipped. Comfortable bed.bedroom and large private bathroom, JP welcomed me into his home, introduced me to the local food, dive shops, and (website hidden) can put together a wonderful itinerary for a fun packed and informative week on Bonaire. He will even accompany you like and if his schedule allows. He provided transportation and guided tours to me at no additional charge, when he was not working as a professional guide for the occasional cruise ship. Between "Dive Friends Bonaire" a few doors down and diving right out the front door (excellent night dive right by the house-you have to experience the tarpon found in great numbers here), and the fully equipped kitchen the costs for diving, eating, sleeping and exploring Bonaire can be minimal. The house is in a very safe area and comes with an additional outside shower and storage area for diving (website hidden) was kind enough to lend me a bike to ride a no charge. A fun and useful amenity on this relatively small and flat island. Flamingos live right next (website hidden)'s tour of the north included the kadushi liquor producer, sightings of the native parrots and goats, and tour of the national park's complimentary museum. On another day, a tour to the south included a excellent discussion and tour of the salt plant, a chance to pet a wild donkey, and opportunity to try windsurfing.
Thanks JP...you are the best thing above water in Bonaire!

About the Host, J P
Eager to rent you my places!!! As I collect license plates, Bring me a license plate from where you live so I an trade you one from Bonaire . They make the best souvenirs as they authentic I have a good selection. If you arrive from the USA talk to me first of course, but I can always use real maple syrup, from real trees in Vermont for example , and always Thomas English muffins, not available here
