Hello Alfredo & welcome..My advice would be the next time you are on island, is to take some time off & speak to the realtors in person & personally see what's available. Nothing like face to face one on one communication.

Your story sounds similar to mine. I am in Orlando. Where in FL do you live?

i live in fort lauderdale and work in palm beach. i will be going back to Bonaire in approximately 8 months. I find it an ideal place to retire to but I have to go back to find out a lot of specifics. I was cool that I met a retiree from Long Island New York with his Path Finder truck and the registration and inspection sticker on the window.

I just bought a building lot in Bonaire and a colleague of mine bought a small 2 bedroom house. I've been to Bonaire twice and fell in love with the island immediately. Being a scuba diver helps, the diving is so very pleasant and with shore diving availability quite inexpensive. But the people are also nice and the atmosphere is so relaxed - it's just a great place. I used Sunbelt Realty and found the people there very friendly, knowledgeable and they had a wide listing of properties. Obviously the closer to the beach you are the more expensive it is, but with global warming on the horizon I'm not sure I'd buy one of the many condos for sale that are literally right on the beach. Prices are pretty reasonable now for homes and we saw many residences in the 100,000 to 165,000 range. I think this will change as more and more people discover what a great place Bonaire is. Water is expensive and I think the amount of development on the island will be greatly influenced by the amount of water available. I wouldn't be surprised to see new construction limited within a decade or so. Currently the drinking water comes from the desalinization plant on the island.

Sean and Alfredo - your stories are similar to ours too - hubby is a fire captain and swat medic, I run an equipment company. We just discovered Bonaire through this site so we're still trying to get all of our eggs together to visit and see if it is our retirement spot We only have 5 years to go and oh so much to do!! I hope you'll keep us posted on your plans!
