St. Willibrordus villa description

Villa Seashell is a luxury oceanfront villa located in the prestigious resort of Coral Estate (24/7 security), close to Curacao’s most beautiful beaches on the west side of the island. From the moment you enter our home, you get the sense of privacy and tranquility you deserve.

The closest beach, with crystal-clear, warm, calm blue water, is only 200 yards from your doorstep. It is perfect for diving, snorkeling, swimming, lounging, and tanning.

Even the most travelled among you will be amazed about the space in this villa, with its four bedrooms, all with their private (en-suite) bathrooms.

The two bedrooms upstairs have indulgent king-size beds, and the two downstairs each have two single beds, with the option to make them into a king-size bed.

The real showstopper is the thatched-roof hut in the backyard—the perfect retreat after a day at the beach.

Your kids can splash around in the sparkling pool as you sip cocktails watching the tropical fish and turtles in the crystal-clear ocean, while small fishing boats pass by and the sun sets on the horizon.

As night falls, you can enjoy dinner at the restaurant & lounge bar Karakter (at the beach down the road), explore the international restaurants of historic Willemstad, or cook your own dinner at the villa’s gourmet kitchen, watching the lights of the boats at night.

Although you’ll probably prefer to spend most of the day outside, the villa offers a spacious indoor sitting and dining area with European antiques mixed with Caribbean colors.

Give yourself the vacation you truly deserve by booking this amazing villa today!

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Nothing is more rewarding than hosting families for their vacation of a lifetime. It is fantastic to see how our guests feel quickly at home and appreciate the attention we put into everything here. We are very often graced with fun and dynamic guests that make hosting Villa Seashell a great new experience each day. Our family of four lives in Aruba. Your contact, Linda Lou, works as an artisan making beautiful jewelry and wall decorations from the treasures of the ocean. As the name implies, a lot of Linda Lou’s art can be found back at Villa Seashell. We enjoy renting vacation homes ourselves. Our favorite destinations are the United States, Italy, and France. We’re avid snorkelers and mountain bikers.

                  Why the Owner Chose St. Willibrordus:
                  Our family has always loved the tropics. We would travel the Caribbean to escape the cold Dutch winters. We felt in love Curacao; it has the best of both worlds, Caribbean with a Dutch flavor. The beautiful, warm, friendly people enticed us to make this place our home. We found this unique oceanfront villa with its breathtaking panoramic views five years ago and completely rebuilt it. Besides going to one of the beautiful beaches, we like to venture out into the countryside and explore the rolling hills topped by plantation houses built more than three centuries ago, or visit the north coast, with its raw beauty. On the northern side of the island, the rough sea has been smashing against the rocky coastline for centuries and has carved caves and little inlets into the rock. It is great to walk over the massive volcanic rocks and observe the wildlife, listen to the wind, and climb down into the caves to observe the waves crashing against its walls. We also like to visit Willemstad, which is only a 20-minute drive. It has attractive stores, exquisite restaurants and rich architecture that tells a tale of its history. Hato International Airport connects the island with the rest of the world, with direct daily flights to Europe, the United States and South America.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                  Our villa is not the typical vacation rental. It used to be our primary home, filled with high-quality furniture, luxurious amenities and architectural details. The location of the villa is very unique; anyone going there just falls in love with it. The views of the ocean are breathtaking at all times of the year. Star-filled nights or a full moon shining across the ocean and lighting the pool for a night swim make this place a unique vacation spot. The place we like best at Villa Seashell is the very large gazebo at the border of the ocean, with its 10-person lounge set, hammocks and dining table; and the wooden deck above the ocean where you can catch your own fish and enjoy the sunset.
