“A perfect place made by divers for divers!”

From the initial contact it was clear that the owners are taking the hospitality business very seriously. Email exchange was patient and very detailed; each and every question was answered in length and in detail - nothing was left unanswered or open to doubts. Information package was complete and one will be hard-pressed to find a question that was not dealt with in the information sent.

The house was prepared and equipped by owners-divers and has EVERYTHING one might wish for a diving vacation including all rinsing and storage/drying facilities (outdoors and locked area indoors), beach chairs, umbrella and cooler boxes, beach and swimming pool towels, in brief: everything!

The condo is specious and well ventilated, fully equipped (the American phone line made it even easier than ususal to keep in contact with my wife and kids) and tastefully decorated.

I personally liked the fact that the specific unit is not directly around the pool, as it promises quiet and privacy. Pool and beach are seconds away and area is quiet and decently maintained.

This is my 7th visit to Bonaire and I already lament the fact that the unit is not available during my coming April trip (mind you: book early!).

Thanks Audrey and I am confident we will talk again in the future.

“A perfect family vacation at LBR #13”
Reviewed December 18, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We travel to the Caribbean with our children annually and have stayed at all-inclusive resorts, non-inclusive resorts, time-share properties and condos. All-inclusive resorts can be convenient when you have young children and can get a “kids stay & eat free deal”, but now that our children are older (7 and 13) we like the added space and convenience a condo, town-home or villa can offer. Plus many resorts charge adult rates for ages 12 and older and sometimes require that we pay for an extra room for our 13 year old and the days of “kids stay & eat free” are gone for us. Traveling is costly these days, especially with a family of four that has three avid SCUBA divers (and one future diver), so we spend a lot of time searching for travel destinations and lodging that offer rates that will fit within a reasonable budget.

There are a number of reasons why we absolutely loved our stay at Kas Bientu di Pasat/LBR 13.

• THE GRILL! Our biggest complaint with every other condo, time-share, etc. we have stayed at is that they don’t have a grill anywhere on the property. We have even looked into buying a travel grill, but today’s luggage weight and fees from the airlines made traveling with a portable grill impractical. It is so quick and easy to prepare a meal, with little clean-up, when you have a grill. Plus very little seasoning or added flavors are required, so we don’t have to stock the kitchen with lots of extras that we won’t be able to use or finish during our stay. I can’t say it enough; we LOVE LOVE LOVE that there is a grill.

• The full stove, oven and refrigerator are also a big plus. Many condos, non-inclusive resorts, and time-share properties have mini-refrigerators, two-burner stoves and no oven, which makes it difficult to stock-up with a week’s worth of groceries at once and prepare meals for a family of four. LBR 13 minimized my time spent in the grocery store and kitchen, so I could maximize my time at the beach and in the ocean. 

• The fully stocked kitchen with all the plates, cups, bowls, pots, pans and utensils we could possibly need and all easy to locate. Nothing was missing or hard to find in the kitchen or anywhere else in the house (towels, toiletries, linens, cleaners, etc.). If I needed it, it was there and it did not take me any time to find it.

• Free Wi-Fi is a really great perk. As much as we try to remove ourselves from “The Grid” when we travel, access to the Internet is still a luxury when traveling and it came in handy when we wanted to quickly look up contact information for local dive shops and tour groups on the island and correspond with them via email. Our kids were especially pleased to be able to access their online games while dinner was being prepared (on the awesome grill) and I enjoyed updating my Facebook status with pictures of Bonaire.

• HDMI port on the TV. This is a great thing to have! We brought a laptop and an HDMI cable with us and every night we viewed the video footage and photographs we had taken during the day while SCUBA diving, snorkeling, playing and sight-seeing on the living room TV. We we’re also able to relax and view movies from our personal library of movies on our hard drive or Netflix (also thanks to the Wi-Fi).

• The welcome basket/tray filled with fruit, peanut butter, bread, chips, coffee, etc. was greatly appreciated. We arrived on Bonaire after dark and after a full day of travel, time zone changes and no meals provided by the airline, we were HUNGRY. The grocery stores were closed and we did not know our way around town yet, especially for navigating at night. Seeing the welcome tray full of goodies was very refreshing. We had food to eat that night and in the morning, so we did not have to worry about rushing out to find food before enjoying our vacation.

• All the detailed information and reminders provided. We went through all the binders, read all the notes, instructions and reminders posted on the walls, and read the notes, comments and advice left by previous guests in the guest book. We often referenced each one when needed and they all were very helpful. It was not information overload. It was like all of our questions were answered before we had them or when we needed them to be.

• The neighbors throughout the LBR complex were all friendly and very helpful. Having the next door neighbor check on us was nice. She was able to help us with little things that we did not want to bother the owners with; like setting the alarm. We read the instructions and followed them adamantly, but it was just something about having someone there to physically show us how it was done that made all the difference.

• Private bedrooms and restrooms upstairs and the half bath downstairs. Like I said, we travel as a family. Not being stuffed into one room with one bathroom for eight nights is blissful.

• The gated screened front door, back patio and windows are really nice to have. We noticed that other units in the complex did not have the screened in patio like LBR #13, which made us even more thankful that we were staying in LBR#13. It allowed us to enjoy the ocean breeze and time out on the patio without the mosquitoes enjoying our blood quite as much. We did donate quite a bit of blood to the island mosquitoes while we were in Bonaire, but the screened windows, doors and patio prevented them from feasting on us while we were indoors. We anticipated the mosquitoes and brought a mild-moderate repellent with us, but the Bonaire mosquitoes love us too much to be completely deterred. Next time we will pack repellent with a much higher concentration of DEET.

• The AC units worked great. They cooled the rooms quickly in the evenings when we turned in for the night and kept the rooms pleasant throughout the night while we slept. Their powerful and quiet features are really nice too; we used them often (especially the quite). The automatic shut-down feature is very convenient, because as hard as we try to remember to shut the doors or turn off the AC unit when leaving the room, there is always a good chance we may forget (children especially, but adults can be forgetful too).

• Outdoor rinse tank and indoor/outdoor clothes lines for drying clothing, swim suits and SCUBA gear. As I mentioned before we are a family of SCUBA divers. We travel with our own personal SCUBA gear, because we regard it as our life support system under the water. Therefore the performance, handling and maintenance of our equipment is incredibly important to us. We could not have asked for a better set up than what LBR #13 has to offer for cleaning, drying and storing our SCUBA equipment. LBR#13 really caters to SCUBA divers, beyond compare. Not only in regards to the equipment, but also the detailed information provided in the binders I mentioned above.

• The Proximity to the pool and beach are perfect. We spoke to other guests at LBR during our stay that “had to have a beachfront unit”. They spent a lot more money than we did to see the ocean in their underwear. The front and back yard of LBR #13 are beautiful and perfect for lounging and soaking up the warmth, sounds, scents and peacefulness the island has to offer. The distance we walk to the beach is no further, much closer in fact, than the distance we have walked from our room in a more costly resort (with an ocean view) to physically get onto the beach or poolside. We did not travel 2,300 miles to stand in front of a window in our underwear and stare at the ocean. We were there to get outside and explore, which is exactly what we did. The only thing we missed out on by not having a unit directly on the beach was paying a much higher premium and we’re glad we did not. …and we felt as though we were “on the beach”. It’s a heck of a lot closer to the beach than our home in Dallas, Texas.

• Personally, I prefer to dig my toes into the sand at the beach over lounging pool side, but my kids would want me to tell you that they LOVED the slide at the pool. …and truthfully, I love that they loved it so much. We have a lot of great pictures and memories of them shooting off the slide and into the water.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the island of Bonaire at Kas Bientu di Pasat/LBR 13. Kas Bientu di Pasat/LBR 13 truly felt like our home on Bonaire. The worst part of our trip was leaving; we all disparately wanted to stay. We all look forward to returning again and we would definitely stay at LBR #13 again, as well as recommend it to anyone we know going to Bonaire. Thank you so much for everything!
