This is the second time we have spent our vacation at One Ocean. The apartment (Luxury one Bedroom with Terrace) is very nicely furnished and offers good equipment even for self-cooks. The view from the rooms and the terrace is simply wonderful. To the apartment belongs a diving room, where the equipment can be stored between the dives. Right next to it is a sink and a shower, so everything is very practical. Diving-wise it is very well located. Even in front of the house you can dive very nice (very close to Small Wall and Petrie's Pillar). Vronie and Geert are super nice and always there when you have questions - no matter if it's about diving, directions, a power adapter ... or problems with the Corona test institute. And which host ever asks if you arrived home safely after your vacation :-) We simply had a great time and were certainly not the last time there...

Due to circumstances I was able to stay at the One Ocean Boutique apartements only for a few days,looking for a quiet place to swim,scuba dive and relax. Even this short stay was a great experience for me. The location is brilliant - with the ocean and coral reef on its doorstep. The accomodation is brand new, contemporary and spotless clean. But most important is the kindness and hospitality of the owners: Vronie and Geert. I had a really wonderful time!

During my short 'workation' last weekduring on Bonaire, I was lucky enough to meet such hospitable and helpful people as Vronie and Geert. The South suite is a spacious room in a beautiful house at an incredibly beautiful location. The feeling of 'once a visitor, always a friend', is fully realized in One Ocean Boutique. I wish Vronie and Geert all the best and hopefully we'll meet again! Karin

Amsterdam, The Netherlands3 contributions
In november, I decided to fly to Bonaire from my home in Amsterdam for six days, mostly for a change of pace, a change of scenery and hopefully some better weather. And i must say, Bonaire did not disappoint at all! Since this was a bit of a last minute decision, i actually ended up booking my apartment with Vronie and Geert en route to Bonaire. I think i was five hours out when i made the reservation. So naturally i was very excited to receive a hand written confirmation within half an hour. That certainly made my last hours aboard the plane a lot more relaxed. Because of the late booking, i didn't expect the red carpet treatment when driving up to the apartment (with the directions Vronie provided, thanks for that by the way). But i was very wrong about that. Geert was already waiting for me outside and after welcoming me, he quickly gave me a tour of the apartment and let me settle in. The fridge was pre-filled with some arrival drinks and snacks, which i found very thoughtful. During my stay, i received access to a special whatsapp 'hotline' i could message if i had any requests or problems. From that point onward, the entire stay easily continued to exceed my expectations! Location was perfect. It's centrally positioned in Hato, just a few minutes from Kralendijk and with both the Washington Slagbaai National Park and the south rim within reach. Also nearby: a supermarket, the airport and several small shops, food trucks and restaurants. The apartment itself is very modern for every standard, but it stands out especially on Bonaire. It features modern kitchen applicances (the oven and i did not become close friends due to a confusing user interface though) and is fully airconditioned. Showers are located inside and outside, and there are a lot of amenities you can use during your stay, like a bbq, a coolbox etc. My apartment was on the ground floor, with a 'loft style' bedroom on the first floor. The centerpiece of this apartment is a huge(!) terrace with cooling fans and outdoor lights. I recommend this apartment if you want the easiest access to the ocean, but there's also a penthouse for sun lovers. I did see a lot of mosquitos, so make sure you use a lotion or a spray! Oh yeah, and then there's the ocean. Just jump into the water and you will find yourself surrounded by coral, fishes and beautiful views. Bring your snorkel (or borrow one from Geert) and your under water camera, because there is a LOT to see! Come sunset, grab a cocktail and watch it right from your terrace. Checkout was -again- an experience where Vronie and Geert set themselves apart from the rest. Because of the departure time of my flight home, i requested a late checkout, so i could enjoy a few more hours relaxing on the terrace. The check out process was seamless, easy and quick. Summing up, this is a beautiful apartment , and it was a great experience. Thank you again Vronie and Geert for making me feel so welcome, and sorry again for booking so very last minute. See you next time!

Dear Jair, Thank you so much for your efforts to write this long, beautifully and witty written review about your stay with us at One Ocean and your island experience. It's great to read that we have been able to provide you with the service and comfort which resulted in your much-needed relaxation get-away.

We hope to welcome you back to our island soon and wish you and your loved ones Happy & Healthy Holidays. Island Greetings Vronie & Geert

Affordable luxury with amazing snorkeling is my vacation dream. When vacation planning last year, I thought I found it with the One Ocean Apartments. When you plan so far in advance and with such great expectations, it is hard not to be disappointed. Our 11 day vacation, in the Penthouse, actually exceeded them! Everyday, we just smiled at each other, and said can you believe this place, this view, and the snorkeling. The house reef at One Ocean is a wonderful spot, with French Angels, barracuda, trunk fish, huge parrot fish, eels, porcupine fish, spotted rum, file fish, schools of blue tang, honeycoomb cowfish (I watched one change colours continuously as it swam from spot to spot) etc. and this was all from the shallows. A short swim out, you can see the deeper reef and it is like looking at a whole different world. If you are fanatically like we are, you can drift snorkel from One Ocean, past Petries Pillar to Andrea 1 and Andrea 2. Our longest snorkel was a 2.5 hour drift snorkel along this route, followed by a 25 minute walk back to One Ocean (look at Google Maps for the path). Our final snorkel just in front and to the north of One Ocean, we saw two turtles (one in the shallows) and had a bait ball swim right by us. It was an incredible send off! We did pry ourselves away from One Ocean to snorkel at other locations, 1000 steps, Karpata, Red Beryl, Lac Bay and Klein Bonaire but it was amazing to start or finish the day with a snorkel right there. When exploring other snorkel sites, we did enjoy the food trucks of Bonaire. But the best food we had, was on the terrace of the One Ocean Penthouse. Dinner in a box Bonaire has a good selection of restaurants that they will deliver to you for $5. Once you figure out which restaurants are open on a given night, simply text your order via WhatsApp, and it arrives 30-60 minutes later. For us, sunset dining at your own oceanfront property with a few beverages (and not having to drive), was paradise. As others have said, the owners V & G are wonderful hosts. They provide a perfect balance of ensuring their guests are well taken care of, without being intrusive. Vronie went way beyond “the call of duty” when she coordinated (and delivered) the arrival of our luggage when it missed our connecting flight. We have been fortunate to have had 12 Caribbean holidays, and this one is by far our favourite snorkeling trip and favourite accommodations. See you in 2022!
