Property description

Ideal for independent travelers who want to get away from the crowds yet be right at the water's edge, our 2-story oceanfront townhome is nestled among lush tropical plants and swaying palm trees, cooled by steady breezes -- minutes from Curacao's five most beautiful beaches. Swim, snorkel and dive some of the world's most vibrant sites, including our famed local 'Alice in Wonderland' reef. Mountain bike, hike Mt. Christoffel, or relax by the pool in sunny 88° temps. Everything inside is designed for your comfort, from the fully equipped kitchen and open-plan living space with futon for extra guests, to the second story king-size bed and spacious balcony with glorious views from sunrise to sunset. Pluses include flat-screen cable TV, DVD & wireless internet, linens & towels, screened windows & doors, hot-water showers in both baths, air conditioners & ceiling fans up and down, computer table, wood balcony dining table, tiled serving cart, etc. Two dive shops & 5 restaurants nearby.


Things to Do in Wespunt and Nearby: There's lots to enjoy at our rural west end of the island -- diving, snorkeling, swimming, mountain biking, hiking, etc. Westpunt alone features six great eateries, from the famous Lodge Kura Hulanda and Sunshine's Sol Food where you'll find the island's best pizza, to the newest restaurant in town, Landhuis Misje. Just down the road, nature lovers will thrill to the 'roller-coaster' drive through Mt. Christoffel Park, home of Curacao's highest peak. There you'll enjoy sweeping panoramic views, prehistoric cave paintings, the ruins of an old colonial plantation houses, and lush bromeliads and rarely seen orchids -- if you time your visit right! Keep your eyes out for the island's fascinating wildlife, whether it be iguanas lounging in the sun, warawara falcons soaring overhead, or chattering green and yellow parakeets darting playfully through the trees. It's not uncommon to see a goat comically standing on its hind legs in quest of a tempting morsel high overhead.

Further Afield on the Island: Beyond Westpunt, the hilly landscape reminds one of the American West with its towering cacti, iguanas and arid climate. When not beach-hopping among 38 different beaches, playing golf, windsurfing or sailing, you can explore 18th century plantation Landhuises featuring historic museums, fine restaurants, even the internationally renowned Chobo Lobo distillery, producer of the only authentic Blue Curacao Liqueur. Other attractions include the oldest Synagogue in the New World, ostrich and aloe farms, a flamingo park, a stamp museum and an aquarium. And you won't want to miss the colorful Dutch Colonial capital Willemstad -- a UNESCO historic site -- for world class shopping and island crafts, dining at an international array of restaurants and bars, or tempting Lady Luck at a number of different casinos. Curacao has something for everyone!

Interesting Facts about Curacao: Curacao is simply fantastic! It's new to the tourist business and everyone goes out of the way to make you happy and in love with their home island they're so proud of. Very clean and safe, the capital city of Willemstad has undergone a renaissance, with new paving, shopping, more restaurants. A single walk over the Queen Emma pontoon bridge will amaze you. US and Canadian vacationers are just discovering an island that's been a Dutch favorite for eons. Though everyone speaks English and the dollar is accepted everywhere, there's a wonderful Continental vibe to the island that's intoxicating. Plus, Curacao is the most racially and culturally diverse nation in the world -- 56 nationalities among 160,000 residents! Discover all Curacao has to offer -- and we guarantee you, you'll return, again and again.

Car: Recommended

Perched 40' above turquoise seas, our oceanfront townhome is located in a small gated community of privately owned homes in the picturesque village of Westpunt. You'll enjoy breathtaking views miles down the coast, out to the horizon and across the bay, where the locals' colorful bungalows dot the hillsides, and small fishing boats and occasional yachts bob at their moorings. A diver's, snorkeler's and kayaker's paradise, Westpunt is home to 'Alice in Wonderland,' one of the world's most vibrant reefs. Playa Forti Beach and delightful local restaurants are a short walk away, while a 5 minute drive gets you to some of Curacao's most famous and beautiful beaches: Playa Kalki, Knip, Jeremy and Lagun. There's fantastic mountain biking and hiking on the nearby wild north side of the island, at the Boca Tabla Nature Preserve and Mt. Christoffel National Park. The market and Carnival town of Barber is only 9 miles away.
