After my 4th stay at One Ocean I would be remiss to not pass on my review. Vronie and Geert have become like family to me and their property totally feels like home at this point. Comfort, convenience, and location could not be better. I have stayed twice in the Luxury apartment and twice in the penthouse and love love love the place. Of course Vronie and Geert are the added benefit that make everything spectacular! I cant imagine staying anywhere else while visiting Bonaire.

Dear Ken, It means a lot to us reading this review coming from. So very much appreciated . You are one of our repeaters from the first hour when we started One Ocean. Covid and some bad luck prevented you from coming down to us for almost 2 years but you stayed in touch, always interested and sending your love and support. Thank you so much! Vronie & Geert

The location was absolutely beautiful! What a treat every morning with appreciating our view and to listen to the crashing waves ~ so tranquil! Very private and it totally worked well with all our needs! A/C is only in the bedroom, but that was just fine as we were always out and about on adventures anyway! Very close to main town, shopping and lots of restaurants and our hosts were amazing as well as accommodating! Thank you, thank you!

Our stay at One Ocean was simply perfect. We stayed in the penthouse apartment and had a magnificent view of the water. The apartment was very well maintained and everything was clean and tidy. The ordered breakfast for the first day was very impressive. We rented a car through One Ocean and it was really fine and at a very good price. It is a bit far from the city, but we got help ordering taxis (so we sere able to enjoy some wine with dinner) and otherwise if you don't want to use your rental car you can walk to the excellent restaurants Rum Runners or Ingridients which are just over 1 km. from One Ocean. Best resturant experience was Mezze recommended by One Ocean. We also recommend to go to the beach bar at Jibe City for the view and the food. The house reef is absolutely fantastic - you can easily spend many hours snorkeling here. It is one of the best places in the world we have ever snorkeled. We saw turtels every day. Thanks to Tsjitske for excellent service - and to Vronie and Geert for creating this wonerful peace of heaven - We would love to return.

We stayed at One Ocean in August 2022, for a short week – in the Beach garden apartment. We absolutely loved our stay with Vronie & Geert and for sure will stay with them again the next time we are in Bonaire (if they have availability that is!). Communication: already before we arrived at One Ocean the communication with Vronie and Geert was very pleasant. Any questions we had were responded to quickly and cohesively. At some point we even called by phone because it made more sense to do so (they proposed this, and was much appreciated). We experienced the same during our stay. They have a business whatsapp were you can ask questions/touch base on anything that pops up during your stay. This worked very smoothly and responsiveness was very good. Hosts: Vronie and Geert are warm, energetic people. They went out of their way to make us feel at home. Furthermore, they are both knowledgeable about the island and have given us a number of good tips, which enriched our stay in Bonaire. Their passion for Bonaire is tangible. Facility: if you are reading this review you have probably already seen some of the photo’s of the facility. I can only say: it is better in real life. The apartment was in pristine condition when we arrived and equipped with everything you would expect (e.g. all kitchen machinery was there, everything was new and kept in good working condition). The accommodations are modern and stylish (e.g. technology is up to date, bathroom/shower is very good condition, good beds, good aircon etc.). I can only respect the job they have done. The building does justice and fits right in with the natural beauty of the direct surrounding (next). Surrounding: as you have seen the building is right at the waterfront. We did plenty of snorkelling and have seen wildlife of high order including: a turtle, the largest parrotfish we have seen in Bonaire (note we did c.15 dives) and a Barracuda. We have seen the native Bonaire eagle hunting right in front of us, since there are quite large fish around right at the snorkelling area. The reef is in good condition with plenty of hard coral, which was beautiful (also refer to photo). We have seen a lot of fish we recognized also from our dives (various schools of fishes). You do not have to swim far to see this wildlife – which for us was great since one of us might want to read a book at one of the beach beds whilst the other might fancy some snorkelling. The site is close to Andrea I and II, which are some of the better known snorkelling/dive sites in Bonaire (but for good snorkelling you can step right in the water in front of the facility…). Literally it is the next stop riding north. The sunsets were also absolutely beautiful and a treat every day – a great way to finish off the day 😊 Best, Kim & Joost

This accomodation made our trip! Sure, diving was great, but the friendliness, the patience and the service provided by Vronie and Geert were superb. Can't recommend them enough. If we're ever making our way back to Bonaire I can't fathom staying anywhere else.

Direct contact with the hostess in advance when booking, and that went very well. Received a good email with good advice before the trip. i.a. recommended restaurants, you can certainly make a good choice from them. It is also advised to rent a PickUp. The roads are not as slippery as we are used to in the Netherlands. We are not divers, but if you are, a PickUp is necessary to drive to the dive sites. In the building, each apartment has its own storage for diving equipment. There is also an outdoor shower for rinsing and drying. Oxygen bottles also provided. Arranged by the hostess. We stayed in the apartment with loft. Fully equipped, nice kitchen, spacious living room and nice shower. Outside a private terrace with sea views, which adjoins the house. The apartment was clean and is also cleaned in between. We had a late flight. In that case you can have breakfast prepared by the hostess for the first morning. Great to be able to explore the island afterwards. During your stay you could also contact Vronnie and Geert for all kinds of questions about the island and reservations for restaurants. Nothing is too much for them. In short, if we are going to visit Bonaire again, it will certainly be at On

One Ocean was such an ideal place to spend a week diving with my daughter. I waited years for our schedules to align where we could go to Bonaire and One Ocean was an excellent choice. The location was ideal for our plans to dive both North and South of the city. They are a VIP Diving center partner so the tank delivery eliminated all the time overhead of obtaining and returning tanks. Did all that right there at One Ocean. Did 3 dives right there- at One Ocean. They have an easy shore entry right from their garden. An easy swim out to the reef and without having to drive or load tanks there is a magnificent reef. Did 1 day dive and 2 night dives here. Navigation back is easy. One Ocean garden lights are the last one on the line. There is good soft coral so if you are lucky enough to be there when the ostracods are active, it is a good place for that as well. Top it off with a good rinse station and storage lockers. Helps make that last task of the day- the clean up- easier and quicker. There is a flight of stairs from the street level to the rinsing and storage area. But this is the same level and only a few feet from the One Ocean shore entry. Vronnie and Geert are excellent hosts. Very responsive and appreciative. Very helpful with restaurant selection and providing information for non-diving activities. Really appreciated Vronnie and Geert. These are the kind of people you want to meet.

The view, the property itself, divespot in front, snorkel spot in front. next to nature, far enough from Kralendijk center, yet also close enough. The best place to book as a romantic get away on Bonaire. also very lovely hosts, which completed the whole experience. Love to come back here.

We spent 10 wonderful days at Vronie's and Geert's One Ocean apartments. The accommodations are excellent, contemporary and perfectly located right at the shore. You can literally walk from the patio right into the water and the reef for world class snorkeling and scuba diving. The penthouse apartment has a nice terrace with a thatch roof from where you can enjoy the sunset. The garden apartment is very spacious with a wonderful patio at the water's edge. Vronie and Geert were very helpful and always there to make this a special family vacation. No wonder there are only 5 star ratings. They absolute deserve it!

We just spent 10 idyllic days on Bonaire graciously hosted by Vronie & Geert at One Ocean! Bonaire is a beautiful island get away if you want to avoid the hustle & bustle of the other ABC islands. Great diving & snorkelling & so easy to get to too. We took a direct flight from NYC to Curaçao & a hopper flight, only 20 minutes, over to Bonaire. So easy, & meant that we avoided both Miami & the big immigration lines entering Bonaire that you get with the bigger flights! One Ocean is at the end of a development, so neighbours only on one side. Lots of lovely birds, turtles, octopus & a myriad of fish species right outside your front door! The apartments are spacious & clean & both Vronie & Geert were beyond welcoming!Lots of tips on what to do, helping with car hire, even going above & beyond, helping me to surprise my husband on his Birthday! Cook at “home” while you listen to the waves or venture out for dinner, walking distance or a 10 minute ride away! We had a wonderful time, met some fabulous fellow world travellers, broke the plunge pool hang out record & wouldn’t hesitate to head back one day. Do yourself a favour & book a stay at One Ocean! You deserve it!
