Oceanfront Villa in Private Residential Area

Bedrooms 4
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

This stunning villa boasts a spacious terrace with an infinity pool overlooking electric blue waters. There's easy access to the ocean below which contains the edges of Curacao's best coral reef. The villa has modern appliances & cozy furnishings. This home is secluded in an enclave where there are only 15 ocean front villas in complete privacy.

The main house boasts three bedrooms and two baths, completely equipped and decorated in modern Caribbean flair. The kitchen is equipped for even the most discriminating gourmet cook. Detached from the main house, there is also a separate master quarters. The entire villa can accommodate 8 persons in total luxury and comfort with one king size bed, two queen size beds and two single beds.

From the infinity terrace you will enjoy an uninterrupted view of the ocean and sky. Swimming in the pool looking over the ocean under a sky lit night is an unforgettable experience. Birds, butterflies, hummingbirds and iguanas surround you in this half an acre ocean-front estate.

Coral Reef Villa is located about thirty minutes from the airport and 40 minutes from the Blue Bay golf course or the world famous Willemstad. It’s remote location makes car rental an absolute necessity, but the total tranquility and peace of mind is well worth it. In 1997, the UNESCO World Heritage Site committee selected the historic city center of Willemstad—one of just six Caribbean sites chosen—because of its “outstanding value and integrity, which illustrates the organic growth of a multicultural community over three centuries, and preserves to a high degree significant elements.”

What can you do in this beautiful ocean paradise? Swim, snorkel, scuba dive, fish from your own backyard, hike the nearby mountains, go horseback riding or simply do nothing and enjoy a spectacular surrounding. Maybe you would befriend one of the friendly neighbors and discover the history of the largest of the Netherland Antilles. Or you could enjoy any of the hundreds point of interests just a few minutes away by car.

In Curacao you are almost guaranteed a perfect weather. Curacao is outside the hurricane belt, Tsunami proof, has never in recorded history suffered an earthquake and there are no poisonous animals on the island

About Osvaldo Moran

My wife and I visited Curacao for the first time over 40 years ago and fell in love with the island at first sight. The people, the views, the diving, the peace of mind and a lot of other factors were the reason we adopted Curacao as our second homeland. Every year we spend the summer with our 5 granddaughters there. An unforgettable experience that gets better every year

Osvaldo Moran purchased this house in 2005

Why Osvaldo Moran chose Curaçao

The property is designed for 8 persons and is sits on top of a cliff where the Curacao reef begins. Abundant animal life on land as well as in the ocean make this house unique. On calm days you can go down the stairs from the back deck and enjoy a swim in the ocean. On rougher days you can drive less than a mile away and enjoy a beautifully protected beach.

Awesome Views

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect -- it was very hard to find a reason to leave the house. The view from the pool was amazing, and the house very comfortable. Close to beautiful beaches and snorkeling.

Beautiful property and very enjoyable vacation.

  • 5 of 5

When you go on vacation and can forget work it is perfect! The villa was wonderful. We went off and enjoyed Curacao each day and loved coming home to enjoy cocktails at the pool, listening to the waves and the wonderful breeze. My husband and daughters loved the scuba diving and we all enjoyed the Blue Room and snorkeling. We enjoyed Shete Boka, and Hato Caves. We had a very enjoyable day in Willemstad and fun day at Klein Curacao. Great vacation, beautiful villa, great owner, and very helpful property managers.

Great location yet with issues

  • 2 of 5

We loved the location but we went there as divers and this location is not a shore dive. The shore was steep rocks with very rough waves that would prevent a sane person from diving here. The house was nice yet there was a strong septic odor on one side. I think there may be an issue with the septic tank. The local manager was fabulous. Due to a blizzard at home we had to stay three extra days and he and his wife we very accommodating. This was our first time on Curacao and we were there to see if it was a place we would want to own a house. In the end we decided we preferred Bonaire and have bought a house there due to better diving and a slower pace.

Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and 2 teenage kids stayed here for spring break. We absolutely loved this house and the location was perfect. It is away from the much busier Willemstad and Jan Thiel parts of the island and near the most beautiful beaches! We have been to Curacao before and stayed closer to Willemstad and thought this was a much better location. Only down side is that it is about 30 minutes to the grocery store so good idea to buy groceries before heading to the house. Every day we visited a new beach and scuba dived. It was so nice to come back to the house and relax by the pool. There was plenty of shade and chairs on the pool deck and listening to the rolling waves was so relaxing. We ate out a couple of nights and really enjoyed Karakter about 20 min away. Should make a reservation if you want a table on the beach. We also ate at Korral Terrace which is above Karakter and the food was good. At the time we were there the seas were a little rough so more difficult to get in to the water from the house but no problem if you go through the gate next door and take that path. The snorkeling is really quite good right in front of the house. The house is well stocked and looks nicer than the photos show. There is only AC in the bedrooms but we never had any problem with being hot as there are so many ceiling fans and ventilation. Inge and Dirk are great hosts and live nearby so if you need anything they are right there. We would definitely stay at this house again!

Fantastic getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfectly away from the busyness of town to allow for relaxing comfort. We were conveniently close to numerous beaches and just a quick drive to the national parks. Dirk and Inge were fabulous hosts and live close by if we needed anything at all. Highly recommend this rental! The description was spot on, with magnificent views and all the comforts of home!

Fabulous Christmas Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We have been coming to the Caribbean for about 40 years at Christmastime, have stayed about "all over" the islands, and found nothing better than what we had here on Curacao, The villa, with the separate fourth bedroom and bath, was a delight. Two "living room" spaces, so plenty of room for all or our 8 family members - three generations, ages from 4 to 79. Right on the ocean coral cliff, with the surf gently washing its base. I got into the water from the house. Need the sea to be relatively quiet, but using the locked path (keys come with the villa rental - the path is next to the yellow wall next door), going down to the water (about 50 feet or so) is quite safe. Getting in and out is not hard if the surf is not running. Most of the time getting in and out is ok. I'm the 79 year old. Carefully check the current.

The house was well equipped - kitchen completely furnished, and beach towels were in abundance. About everything worked, though the house is older, and not everything is perfect. But the a/c units were splendid, the ceiling fans worked well, the stove is fine, as is the fridge and the microwave. The outdoor gas grill worked too. The clothes washer and dryer worked well, and the blender got a workout making smoothies.

Dirk and Inge were here when we arrived to show us the details, and were always "on hand" at their house nearby to either fix or explain. They keep the villa spotless.

The kids scuba dived every day twice from the car at sites nearby. About the best dive site they visited was the one right out in front, using the red gate next to the yellow walled house next door. The three beaches off San Juan were the best dives. There is a 8 NAF fee (for the car and everyone inside it, not individually) to use the beaches each day. The reefs are alive and beautiful - green morays (huge), spotted eagle rays and lots of lionfish, some huge too.

The villa is remote from built up areas, in a dead end cut de sac of about 15 houses, most of which were not being used while we were here. What's left of a hotel is about a quarter mile away (you pass through it coming and going to the house). Abandoned several years ago. There's a protected beach there with no chairs, but safe shallow swimming in the ocean.

The road to the villa from the main road (Soto) is bumpy, but quite manageable, with several "sleeping policemen" to slow down for.

All in all just a delightful Christmas for our family. We're coming back next Christmastime.
