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!

We just returned from a 3 week stay at One Ocean. This was our second stay and again we stayed in the penthouse. The penthouse is the most private apartment and has the best view. Although One Ocean was booked full it never felt crowded. What else can we add to all the (true) positive reviews. The apartment is clean, has a great terrace, amazing sunsets, large rooms and a fully equipped kitchen (including dishwasher). The TVs in both bedrooms are now also equipped with chromecast. We also really liked the double shower. But the main reason for us to stay at One Ocean are the owners Vronie and Geert. Their level of service and kindness makes our holiday so much more relaxed. During one of the weeks of our stay Vronie and Geert were not available. Fortunately the replacements (Jeroen and Simone) also provide excellent service. Our stay at One Ocean is exactly how we want to spend our holiday. It is truly like visiting friends and Vronie an Geert can add us to a fast growing list of returners.

We stayed in the one bedroom apartment with full kitchen and an amazing 30 foot by 7 foot balcony that sits about 8 feet above and 20 feet back from the waters’ edge. Sunset and 180 degree views. We snorkeled 3 times going north or south from One Ocean and saw more fish and more species than at any of the other designated shore accessible snorkeling spots on the island. The owners, Vronie and Geert, are super friendly and helpful. The location is perfect because it’s between the town and all the main dive spots. If you stay south of town you would have to deal with traffic and cruise ship crowds every day.

The One Ocean was absolutely amazing. The amenities, location and host are warm and welcoming. The whole ambience at OO is perfect, quiet and peaceful with the most amazing views and within easy reach of all the great restaurants, bars, snorkeling and diving spots that Bonaire has abundance. Vronie and Geert are without doubt the best host. Everything is fully explained and nothing is too much trouble. OO is not a traditional hotel, nor a traditional B&B. It felt more like staying as a guest in someone's fabulous home. The grounds, pathways, rooms, pool and all aspects of architectural design are really well thought out and truly a labor of love from Vronie and Geert. The rooms were absolutely excellent and spotlessly clean and the smell of eucalyptus and rosemary (Rituals) - addictive! We were torn between wanting to explore the island and simply spending time at OO. Whenever we went, we always looked forward to returning to our home away from home. The island itself is beautiful with extremely warm and friendly people and there is a lot to see there. Starting from the best snorkeling just steps away from the back of the building through the Washington Slagbaai National Park, Slave Huts, flamingos, Donkey Sanctuary up to the sweet, colorful downtown full of restaurants, bars and small shops (a lot of local crafts). No high-rises, no banana boats - it all makes Bonaire and especially One Ocean places that are already missed on the way back to the airport. We loved every minute here, it truly is a special place and we shall return again soon. Thank you Vronie and Geert for our extraordinary experience!

One Ocean is so lovely place on oceanfront! Beautiful and peaceful location, nice and clean and well-equipped apartment, we had Junior Apartment so had also ocean view and balcony was not too hot. You need a car to stay in OO, though there is a restaurant and small supermarket on walking distance. The service was super good and really friendly, many thanks Vronie and Geert! We got a good information package before arrival, during the stay all questions were answered fast via whatsapp, pick-up from the airport was included, they also took us to a car rental next day without extra fee. It was also possible to order ”breakfast package” as we arrived quite late. Very relaxing stay! Looking forward to come again!
