We had a great stay at Bellevue No. 1 in January. The condo and the location worked out well for us, diving in front of the apartment. The condo was very nice and had all the amenities we needed. We loved having our own kitchen (where all the basics were provided) and eating outside on the porch with the amazing ocean view. The condo was very clean and was even cleaned once for us during our stay.
We found the condo's little beach and the diving off of it a definite plus. We were in Bonaire to dive and we did a lot of diving. We did not find much beach on the island and we did not find a lot of real easy shore entries. This was an easy entry and we did a couple of dives off the back of our condo. Someone else staying at the complex said that this was the third best dive site on the island. I don't know if that's the case, but it was equally great diving to many other sites we did. And some of our party also did some night dives right from the condo, which was very, very convenient. And, again, the beach entry was really nice.
We liked the first floor location. We had easy access to the dive locker and less overall schlepping being on the first floor. And the condo opens right to the pool and the pool deck. And the pool is a wading pool and a plunge pool; not really a hanging out pool. For us, we liked being able to walk right off our porch and be at the pool and deck and the beach.
Communication with the owner Carla was excellent. She responded quickly to my e-mails and provided us with everything we needed to know. We also appreciated how the Management on island, with this particular unit worked, getting a key from Martin at a nearby Hotel. It was good to have someone very nearby you could ask questions of if needed (we didn't really need to--but it was still nice to have a name and a face nearby if you needed a little help).
We will definitely return to Bellevue no. 1. Thanks Carla!
