Brakkeput Abou villa description

Villa Pura Vida is a new (2009) detached villa with a private pool in the neighbourhood Brakkeput Abou nearby the famous Spanish Water and prestigious areas of 'Jan Sofat' and 'Jan Thiel', situated close to historic town of Willemstad, beaches (Jan Thiel and Papagayo), shopping, sailing, diving, surfing and fine dining.

We offer a one story detached villa with three bedrooms, two bathrooms, two porches, spacious living room, dining room and open kitchen and bar. Fully equipped and very comfortable.

Very affordable and very child-friendly. Your children can play 'on the street' without worries.

Spacious and cool: The villa is built a spacious lot and has very generous surfaces for the available rooms and terraces. It has a floor plan of about 200 m2 (2200 sq feet) and therefore offers a lot of space not very commonly found in holiday homes.

From the front porch you enter the living room of the villa. Cathedral ceilings offer a spacious effect and the living room appears even larger than it already is. Hot air will disappear to make room for the gentle blowing tradewind which is always there and will make your stay a very comfortable one.

The trade wind will leave through the rear end of the villa where there is another covered terrace and this terrace has a open connection to the kitchen by use of a cosy bar.

Relaxing with a view: At your arrival you will find that the large and impressive front porch will attract your attention immediately. It is completely covered and offers, amongst other furniture, a great lounge bed to make your stay outside comfortable and relaxing. And there is always the view.

The view form the front is to the old and historic (and completely renovated) mansion 'Rust en Vrede' (which is Dutch for Peace and Tranquility) surrounded by its plantation. Looking a bit to the right you will see the sailing ships on the Spanish Waters and there is always the spectacular view to Table Mountain. The villa is surrounded by a tropical garden and two terraces: one in the back of the villa and a large one (covered, on Curaçao called a 'porch') in the front. You will always find a sunny or shady place to stay.

                                  Curacao is one of the most 'original' Caribbean islands and offers s wide range of tourist activities and facilities. It has daily flights from Netherlands, USA (Miami) en regular flights from Newark and other cities in the area. Situated between the islands of Bonaire and Aruba (15 minutes flight!) it has the same climate (dry, tropical, outside the hurricane belt) but offers much more. Historic downtown, many restaurants with all kinds of cuisine, the Seaquarium (swimming or diving with doplhins!), the Ostrich Farm: also for children there is a lot to do. Great shopping, tax free facilities and world class diving, snorkeling and beach life. It has about 70 beaches with pristine waters along the whole south shore. Spectacular north shore with beautiful National Parks offers great wildlife. And much, much cheaper then Aruba or Bonaire! You will love the island and will return!

                                  Golf: Add this once-in-a-lifetime experience to your “must play” list. Designed by the legendary Pete Dye, the par 72 Old Quarry Curacao golf course draws its name from the historic quarries where famed Curacao marble is mined. If you’re looking for a phenomenal getaway, our Curacao golf resort is the perfect choice.

                                  Measuring just less than 7,000 yards, the course offers a visually stunning experience for the intermediate, beginner or advanced golfer. Beginning at the resort, the course also features a full-service clubhouse, a driving range, golf grill, pro shop, lockers and club storage.

                                  Why wait? Join us for a Curacao golf vacation you’ll never forget.
