Perhaps the best thing about our condo is the location and design of the resort. It is in the middle of the island, thus it occupies the most convenient location for diving up and down the coasts; and you can look out in wonder at the ocean from almost all rooms save the bathrooms (unless you keep the door open to the master bathroom) and the second bedroom. The ocean feels like it belongs to you, and the sky as well. And even though our condo is part of a resort, Sand Dollar is a quiet, peaceful, and private paradise. We love the choice of socializing with guests and residents or just keeping to ourselves. What a joy to be able to walk out our screened-in porch and jump into the sea at any time of the day or night for a swim, snorkel, or float. Our kids love it here, too. They like to go back and forth from the sea to the pool to the beach and to the condo (usually for food). They can disappear for hours and we have no worries at all about them. What a joy to see them waking in the morning with plans to spend the entire day outdoors using their imaginations, hunting for sea glass, sporting with the iguanas, and playing with other kids in the resort, making life-long friends. They too appreciate the soul-expanding, upward-looking vistas. Sometimes a herd of goats comes marauding through the grounds of Sand Dollar, and we help to usher them away before they nibble away at the work of the many owners who take pride in their gardens; and sometimes a few wild donkeys wander through, seeking their own version of paradise. So yes, the condo has the amenities you will need to enjoy your stay comfortably and amply, but the real reason to be here is the direct and broad access it affords to the ocean, through eyes, ears, and touch. They say you ought to try not to touch the marine live, but after a while the sun and salt and breezes and the dust blown over from the Sahara will touch your senses and you will undergo a 'sea change,' as Shakespeare calls it, into something new and richer than before. But that takes more than a week to happen. It happened to us when we lived here for a year. So come and stay as long as you can. We will do our best to make this possible for you. We offer increasing discounts on longer stays, and we are willing to negotiate these discounts further. For our aim as owners who rent is to cover our expenses and invest in the condo by making improvements, so that your next stay here will be even better. So tell us what you think would make this condo and the life it affords approach the perfection that nature holds out as a model. And let me not forget to mention how much we like living in our bathing suits or a pair of shorts and without shoes much of the time as we move in and out of our condo. And no wristwatch either: for there are two times on Bonaire, day and night, and two places, sea and land. Life is simple here, but elemental and close and real. It is not for addicts of the man-made, but for those who have the soul of the Psalmist and love to put to good use the life of leisure. More

As much or as little as you wish. Sand Dollar is a quiet and private resort. You will feel in charge of your activities and interactions, the agent not the subject.

About the neighbourhood
Louis and I are teachers. Louis teaches the liberal arts at St. John's College in Annapolis (the quintessential great books school) and I teach Latin in the Anne Arundel County Public School system. We have also spent many years teaching outside the US, first with the Peace Corps in Czechoslovakia (Brno), and then Slovakia (Presov), Romania (Iasi), Kyrgyzstan (Bishkek), and Iraq (Kurdistan)! Yes, the kids went with us and attended local schools. We have settled down in Maryland, outside Annapolis. The four of us now live the typical fast-paced life of a suburban family, with sports practices and work demands! But every seventh year we take our sabbatical on Bonaire, where we live out the meaning of that word: rejuvenating ourselves while reveling in nature's riches. We have lived and w...
Getting around
You should rent a pick-up truck if you are diving--this is what everyone does. There are many car and truck rental agencies on the island. We can offer advice on this.
