Westpunt townhome description

Our oceanfront townhouse in the Marazul Dive Resort is a two level unit, nestled between emerald hills and turquoise sea. Enjoy lots of privacy and quiet as our house is the very last one in a row of units facing the ocean -- there are no immediate neighbours on one side. You will love the superb panoramic view to the ocean horizon directly in front and relaxing lush greenery looking to the hills south. An ideal spot for those seeking tranquility and nature all-around!

Just a few steps from our front-door is easy access to fantastic swimming, diving, and snorkeling, with a professional dive shop nearby. Some of the most spectacular beaches in Curacao are just minutes away -- renting a car is advisable. Our house is fully furnished and air-conditioned, with all the comfort and amenities needed for a relaxing holiday. Expect tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our place is all about rest and relaxation in an amazing natural setting!


Welcome to our tropical paradise in Curacao! Perched atop a cliff overlooking the sparkling waters of Westpunt bay, we’re one of 20-some houses of Marazul Dive Resort. Nestled between emerald hills and turquoise sea, our home sits about 25 paces away from the water, with easy access to great swimming, snorkeling, and diving from the steps carved into the coral formation cliff right outside our front door. For the scuba diver, our amazing house reef is just 200 feet offshore directly in front of the resort. The water is always calm and crystal clear, with an average temperature of 28 C, making for some unforgettable underwater experiences any time of the year. Many well-travelled and experienced divers tell us this is one of the best diving spots anywhere. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

As the very last house in a row of units facing the sea, we enjoy a lot of privacy -- amazing views to the ocean horizon looking west, and some beautiful mountain scenery to the south. From our upstairs terrace, the vista is completely unobstructed. At times you think you are in Bora-Bora, and the next minute you could be off the coast of Crete. We love the views, the fantastic sea surrounding us, and that faraway-from-it-all feeling. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Our house consists of two identical units, each with a living room/kitchenette and a bathroom on the main floor; upstairs is the bedroom with another bathroom. The decor is modern and comfortable, including a flat screen cable TV and an iPhone/iPad dock with speakers. For families, you can rent both units with the connecting doors open on the main floor, giving you lots of space with two adjoining living rooms. All rooms are air-conditioned. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The village of Westpunt is 35 km from the airport and the main town of Willemstad. Far from the crowds, our part of the island is peaceful and serene with none of the usual trappings of tourism. The surrounding national park is unspoiled wilderness at its best, and being outside of the hurricane belt, the climate is a balmy 31 C year-round. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk, while even more spectacular stretches of sand are a short 10 minute drive away. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

We have lived and travelled in many parts of the world, yet we consider ourselves lucky to have found this little piece of heaven on the little-known island of Curacao. Hope you decide to enjoy it too – it is definitely worth the trip!. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
