Property description

Our townhome in this gated, quiet, very private resort enjoys a perfect location - true oceanfront (about 20 paces from the sea) with completely unobstructed views to the ocean and sunsets. Stroll from your lanai, past palm trees, bougainvilleas, the pool and palapa down to the steps into the sea - a private access from which to dive, snorkel or swim. The luxury of walking a few hundred feet to warm, calm, crystal clear water of this quality can't be overstated. A fabulous reef and sealife are just a few yards from your patio.
Our location within the resort enjoys consistent sea breezes unblocked by other buildings and we never hear neighbors, dogs or traffic. Our new windows and doors are screened - allowing you to keep out the uninvited [occasional mosquitos/geckos], without closing off the cooling winds. Our kitchen is very well equipped. There is A/C on both levels, hot water at the kitchen and both showers, portable and ceiling fans, full size refrigerator, quality cooking utensils and much more. The bedroom has an ensuite bath, a comfy king size bed, a second large deck with seating, and an unobstructed view overlooking the sea. Everything you'll need to relax, unwind, and enjoy - the views, the sun, the water, and your vacation

There is a lot to see and do on Curacao. You'll find that most of the development - the resorts, the homes, hotels, shops/businesses, traffic, and people are concentrated in and around the bustling, multi-cultural city of Willemstad. The city and old Dutch harbor area are worthy of a site-seeing trip, but you'll be very happy to be returning to the quiet of the west end and your townhome.

GET AWAY - Come to the west end of Curacao if you are looking for the relatively 'undiscovered', undeveloped and uncrowded part of the island - where traffic, crowds, and congestion aren't available. What this area does have is beautiful, tranquil beaches, calm, protected seas with fabulous sea life, and a healthy reef system right off shore. Two beautiful national parks are just 5 minutes away from the resort.

The water here is the calmest on the island, crystal-clear, and warm. Our resort has private sea access that is never crowded. There is great snorkeling and diving just steps from your patio door - with 2 full service dive shops very close by. For variety, there are many great shore dive/snorkeling sites and five of Curacao's most pristine, uncrowded beaches within 5 minutes. Their is a sand beach an easy 300 yard swim or walk away. Several restaurants [including 2 of the island's highest rated] are also less than 5 minutes away.

The resort is gated, private, quiet, uncrowded, and safe - with friendly and helpful on-site managers to assist you. There is secure off street parking, a beautiful pool and tropical landscaping.

The Unique Benefits of this Townhome:
Our new patio doors, and louvered windows and front door are all screened and will maximize the cooling breezes while keeping out the occasional mosquito, colorful geckos and tropical birds.
There are separate air conditioning units for the bedroom and the main level. You'll appreciate the custom blinds, full size refrig, and hot water at the showers and kitchen sink - among many small, added comforts that will make your stay more enjoyable.

You are sure to enjoy the fabulous view of the sea and sunsets from the bedroom and its adjoining deck, along with the bedroom's private bath, air conditioning, and the comfortable, king size bed w/memory foam pad.
You'll make good use of our patio furniture on both decks, the full size Weber grill, the beach chairs, beach towels, portable coolers, and fans - and you'll find that our kitchen is well equipped with quality cookware and utensils. The Wi-Fi connection, Direct TV, new LCD, and DVD player may be valuable if the quiet becomes unbearable.
If there are more than 2 in your party, there are comfortable accomodations on the main level, including another bath complete with shower, and a separate AC unit.

Anyone staying here will appreciate our location - wonderfully landscaped with colorful flowers and coconut palms and incredibly convenient to great swimming, snorkeling and diving in crystal clear, calm water. The location of our townhome on the resort is such that no other resort buildings obstruct the views or the sea breezes [which cool the townhome], and we are far enough from the resort's neighbors that we never hear dogs or traffic. The true ocean-front setting - just 20 paces from the ocean - offers a totally unobstructed view of the sea and our often breathtaking sunsets.There are games, books, artwork, maps, and many other custom touches that will remind you of home - and that this is a home, and not just a rental..

Marazul is not a catored, room service style resort/hotel - It is a private and quiet sanctuary in one of the island's most beautiful locations - incredibly convenient to its best beaches, best snorkeling/diving, and natural beauty.
Our townhome is not a large, luxury villa - It is a comfortable, clean, thoughtfully furnished, and very well equipped, one bedroom, true ocean front townhome - in a spectacular location. You will find everything you need here to have a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable island vacation.
We think you'll agree that it's more than a rental - it's a home that you are invited to share. We're very confident that you'll be happy to call it home during your island vacation.
We supply our guests with all of the information they will need in order to know what to expect - on the island, at the resort, and in our town home. This helps them make the best choices possible and insures that they have the best island vacation they can.

Other Amenities

  • We use our townhome as a second home and are always working to make it comfortable for ourselves and our guests. We recently upgraded all windows and doors to louvered, added a new full size refrig and new cooktop, changed our outdoor seating and table on each deck, added Direct TV with LCD TV, a memory foam pad for the king bed, non-slip mats for the tiled shower floors, a good laminated island map, coolers, beach chairs, an alarm clock, and other small, but helpful 'extras'. You will find art, books, pictures, and custom touches that will remind you that this is a home. We believe that you'll find it a well-equipped, quiet, peaceful and comfortable base for your island stay. Our biggest sacrifice [for the cooks/chefs among you] has been to keep the electric cooktop. The island logistics of supplying gas consistently were overwhelming. The kitchen is very well stocked with quality utensils/pots/pans. You'll find everything you need for a great island vacation. ...moreless

Car: Recommended

Great on-site access to the island's calmest water with crystal clear visibility, great snorkeling and shore diving. Just a couple of minutes to two national parks and the island's 5 best beaches - w/no traffic, crowds, or noise. Requires a 15 minute drive to small, well stocked grocery or 30 minutes to the largest, American-style supermarket. Eight restaurants close by - including 2 of top 3 on Curacao.

No nightclubs/casinos nearby[30-40 minutes] - not the perfect place to come to party [unless you are planning your own very small and intimate party].

Other Activities: great shore diving/snorkeling and 2 dive shops close to the resort.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a 'semi'-retired couple who live most of the year in the Colorado mountains near the ski resort of Crested Butte. We have visited many of the Caribbean islands over the past 25 years looking for a place with great water/weather/people for a vacation home. We fell in love with the west end of Curacao, and Marazul in particular. The contrasts between the high altitude alpine setting of Crested Butte and the spectacular low latitude waters/scenery/weather of 'our' end of Curacao have been everything we hoped they would be.

Why the Owner Chose Westpunt:
We chose this [Westpunt] part of the island because it is much less developed, has far fewer people and cars, with calmer seas, and better diving and snorkeling than any other location on the island. The best of the island's natural beauty is found on this end of the island - including 2 beautiful national parks. All of our guests have agree that the accomodation of driving a bit further to shop is a worthwhile trade off. We also felt that the cooling trade winds were more consistent and less obstructed here than in many other areas we visited. The fresh water pool and beautifully landscaped grounds of the resort are clean and well maintained. The resort is very private, quiet, gated, with great ocean access and plenty of secure, off-street parking......and is never crowded. Our resort's manager is available to answer questions, fix issues, and help make whatever additional arrangements you may need.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The single best attribute of our townhome is a perfect location on the island and within the resort - guaranteed to be appreciated. The unobstructed sea breezes and unobstructed ocean views are unmatched - and not to be missed. We have spent a good deal of time, energy, and money in creating the place we want to call 'home' while on the island -- and we are confident that you will be happy to call it home while relaxing as our guests and exploring this fabulous area..
