Bonaire Oceanfront Apartments
Reviewed 6 September 2013

This isn't a review of Bonaire Oceanfront Apartments but of Cas Thomas, a small guest apartment attached to a private villa. It is rented and managed through the folks at SunRentals. For those interested, Sun Rentals offers a wide range of private rentals that are absolutely lovely.

First, let me start out by saying how helpful and nice the lady's at Sun Rentals were in getting everything together for us. Always very very nice and prompt in answering my no doubt annoying emails and accomodating with whatever we needed. Thanks Rianne and Bouke! Very wonderful job stocking the fridge in the full kitchen for us before we came! Thank you.

Cas Thomas' apartment is simple and relatively small but very cute and perfect for a couple. It sits attached to a larger villa that is unoccupied during your stay. While it is more of a "garden" apartment, it is literally 10 steps away from Bonaire's leeward beach and one of the best private seaside patios on the island! Also being "gardenside," the apartment allows guests to open the large and numerous plantaion shuttered windows to allow the refreshing tradewinds to come through the apartment--very nice indeed!

We are avid divers and have been to Bonaire many times. What we didn't expect was how nice we would find the diving directly in front of our Villa. It was so convenient to gear up on the patio, dive from the soft sandy beach right there, then get out, shower at the outside shower, and have a nice refreshing drink. Lather, rinse, repeat... very nice!

The shaded patio has several tables, lights, nice lounges and sofas, sun awnings for later in the day (keeps the sun out of your face), ceiling fans, dining and breakfast tables... hermit crabs, bananaquits and iguanas. What more could you need?

A+ for the friendly staff and wonderful place!! Highly recommended.

I'm not kidding when I say that you have the best views of Bonaire from the penthouse of this property. The balcony is gigantic, and you can see the expanse of the endless waters from every inch of the balcony. It could not have been a better view! The apartment is huge, well furnished and the air conditioner in the bedroom is very refreshing after a day out in the hot sun.

The service is also wonderful - the office staff at Sunrentals were very accommodating both from before the booking until we actually left. They answered all our questions and greeted us warmly when we arrived. It is in a great location - downtown is right down the street, there is access to a lot of restaurants and to grocery stores so you can cook when you don't feel like eating out. One small hitch was that the cleaning staff used one of our towels as a door mat to keep the water out when there was a heavy rain - we complained to the Sunrentals and they offered to clean it for us. It was a little disappointing that our personal belongings were used w/o our permission but she promised to instruct the cleaning staff - hope it will never happen again (-1 star for this).

All said and done, the place is great and the dive shop onsite is also wonderful! Rob was really pro-active with us and helped make our diving better. He spent some time in the water teaching us some tricks when he saw that we were carrying too much weights. The end result was great - my husband went down by almost 8 pounds and the diving experience was just brilliant. We rented a BCD and tanks from the dive shop and they were in great condition.

Room Tip: Get the pent house - worth every penny!

First time using Sunrentals Bonaire. They were great and always prompt with replies to questions. Villa Topaz was just perfect for our needs and was just as advertised. We wanted someplace special to stay on our vacation as we were bringing our daughter and her husband and our two granddaughters to Bonaire for the first time. Villa Topaz was that special place. Our granddaughters loved the pool and it was hard to get them to go anywhere else.

Having been to Bonaire four times now, there's nowhere else I would choose for a mix of quiet setting and convenience. The apartments are right on the sea front with good snorkelling and diving right outside the front gate. Self-catering is easy, with access to supermarkets, whilst a few good restaurants are within easy walking distance. Apart from a few niggles like some lights and appliances not working, the apartment we rented was good for our purposes and was cleaned daily by friendly staff. The office staff were friendly and responsive and helped for example to make the balcony baby-proof. My older son was crying when we had to leave - I had to promise to come back some day .....good sign of a great holiday!

We recently returned from two weeks staying in the Ocean Front Appartments and it was fantastic.A big thank you to the wonderful Sun rentals staff whose office is just behind the appartments. Everytime we went into the office the smiles of welcome were like an extra ray of sunshine and nothing was too much trouble, a really personal, caring service. This is our 4th stay in the Ocean Front Appartments and we were in the penthouse, the view is unbelievable with fantastic sunsets directly in front, over the sea to Klein Bonaire.The appartment is very spacious and comfortable and could not be more convenient, just a couple of minutes walk to the centre of the village and restaurants, also the boat for Klein Bonaire is just about 50yds away Bonaire is a magical little Island the snorkelling is amazing, even just in front of the appartments, but there are sites all round and it is really worth a trip over to Klein Bonaire.It is also worth driving round the National Park, we especially loved Wayaka 2 bay.We also loved just lazing in the water at Lac Bay, so peaceful, we were usually the only peole there. We just can't wait to return!! Barbara and Kathryn

Bonaire has been on our "diving to do" list for years. B.O.A. Has made our stay fantastic. The staff is very friendly & helpful, the on site dive center rocks, & the BBQ restaurant next door - Bobbejan's - is to die for! We love walking into town to explore, or driving around the island after our dives. This little island is perfect. Laid back pace, delicious food, incredible diving...what more could you want? We are in the penthouse, & the views are breathtaking. It isn't one of those sterile mega resorts, but we don't like those impersonal places - we prefer small & unique. These guys provide much better customer service than the big resorts - we get the personal touch. Love it, love it, love it. Looking forward to our return trip already!
