Ocean Front Condo at Playa Lagun with Fabulous View (Best price in Resort)

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

The Island of Curacao has many wonders to enjoy. Take in the most beautiful sunset you've ever seen, snorkel before breakfast, dive right from our beach, teach your children to swim or eat at one of the two restaurants located at Playa Lagun. All of this are at your fingertips from Lagoon Ocean Resort. The ocean is calm and the sea life is abundant. The climate is warm, yet our trade winds keep you comfortable. Curacao is located outside the hurricane belt next to Aruba in the Caribbean where it never rains for very long.

This condo sits approximately 20 feet above sea level and is located less than 15 feet from the waters edge. The view is nothing less than spectacular. An enlarged 1st floor terrace with roof for shade allows you to enjoy oceanfront dining or to just kick back and enjoy the sights and sounds of the ocean. Granite countertop in kitchen and enlarged bedroom make this unit unique within the resort. Direct TV with CNN, Disney, Discovery, Nat Geo and many more. Lounge in the pool just outside your back door or walk down the steps to Playa Lagun. Two dive shops are located next to our property. Christoffel National Park and Shete Boca are about 15 minutes away.

You are sure to run out of time before running out of things to see and do. We have a full time Resident Manager on site to attend to your needs and ensure a carefree stay. If you are arriving late, let us know and we can arrange to have a small food/drink package waiting for you.

We are private owners and have no relationship with Bahia Apartments next door.

About Scott McKechnie

Ruth & Scott bought this unit in 2006 and are personally involved with every aspect of managing this second home.

Why Scott McKechnie chose Curaçao

Why you should rent this property? We recently completed a minor renovation expanding our 1st floor terrace and added a roof for shade. Its perfect for oceanfront dining or just kicking back and enjoying the ocean view.

Since we don't use an expensive management company, we pass the savings on to you. Compare our bottom line price with any other ocean front unit in our resort and we'll be lower...we guarantee it!

What makes this condo unique

View...View...View and proximity to beach with great diving and snorkeling. Two restaurants and dive shops are available at Playa Lagun.

Safe! Beautiful! Comforts of home!

  • 5 of 5

Great location with close proximity to the beaches of Santa Cruz, Lagun, and Westpunt! Very easy rental with no hassle! Thanks Scott for sharing your place with us for our 30th! We enjoyed 10 days of fishing, golfing, snorkeling, and sight seeing! Ivy was great in aiding getting and returning the condo keys even though we arrived after 8pm and left before 5 am.

Love this lagoon!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying at the Lagoon Ocean Resort. The condo accommodations are basic but everything you need for a laid back week in paradise. If you prefer getting some distance from the ultra-touristy ends of the island, you'll love Playa Lagun. Many locals frequent this beach and it is fun to watch kids in their morning swimming lessons and adults in a water aerobics class.

Once again, the highlight for me was what you don't see in the photos - and that is the underwater beauty explored through snorkeling. This time we even tried an "Intro Dive"! But so much is accessible right from shore in "our lagoon" that you'll have plenty to explore without diving. In fact, my friend had just recently learned to swim and snorkeling was brand new to her. We spent hours in the water 5 out of 7 days (rough waves clouded the water the other 2 days - remnants of a hurricane further north). We saw many kinds of fish - trumpet, trunk fish, puffer fish, parrot fish, flounder, angels and something we called a moth fish(?), etc. etc. - as well as sea turtles, moray eels, sea urchins, anemones, and so much more. Take your time and be patient and you will be rewarded. The coral wasn't quite as awesome as 5 years ago, but still way better than what we found in Hawaii earlier this year. Healthiest on cliff sides further away from the beach. (Please be sure to wear the type of sunscreen that does not damage coral if you come here!)

The only side trips we made were to Shete Boka and Willemstad, which are definite "must sees" when in Curacao. But it was so hot that we were happy to spend most of our time in Playa Lagun.

Other highlights: the incredible stars at night (you can clearly see the Milky Way!), watching the awesome frigate birds swoop and soar and dive to catch fish in the lagoon, iguanas and pretty yellow birds everywhere, and the Blue Voodoo smoothie drink at Bahia Restaurant.

Awesome view with great accommodation. We were there during carnival weekend, so lots of locals fun!

  • 4 of 5

Snorkelling is best in the morning, water shoes help. Condo well equipped and very comfortable. Groceries must be bought before heading out as there as nothing close by to stock up. Very relaxing!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words. You must be a tough grader though since we only got a 4. What could we have done better to make it a 5? Best regards, Scott

Just as described, just better than expected!

  • 5 of 5

Our Flight was delayed and with 6 months advanced reservation for our rental car. They had no cars only a bus with a stick. What looked like a bad start of a vacation, as soon as our bus pulled into the driveway Ivy the neighbor caretaker meet us. What great service!! We stayed 13 nights in Scott’s home. As stated by others Scott is great to deal with. This has an Amazing beautiful location. A real snorkeling paradise. Just walk in and you do not need to swim out far to see great sea life. Every night Amazing Sunsets right off the porches. What makes the location good is you do not have a lot of traffic and can visit the Amazing nearby parks and restaurants. Great pool and most of the time you can will have it all for yourself. The Wi-Fi worked great so you can keep up with the news and friends. We never used the Air conditioners on both floors. The Breeze and paddle fans were sufficient. We would definitely go back.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We visited the beautiful island of Curacao and stayed at Scott's place in November of 2016. We had a great experience! The house was clean, had plenty of space, and we could not have asked for a better location. We felt very safe and all of the neighbors were friendly. The view was breathtaking during the day and of course at sunset. We had the luxury of cooking at home when we wanted and still got to try many of the delicious restaurants around the area that Scott recommended. Our favorite restaurant was Trio Penotti (I had the Thai beef...yum!). We are so glad that we decided to stay in this area because we were able to see so many beautiful beaches, mountains, and wildlife while avoiding the over-crowded tourist areas. We rented snorkel gear from the shop right next door and used it all week long at the different beaches. Playa Lagun had some of the best snorkeling and we even saw several sea turtles! We had a wonderful vacation and highly recommend staying at Scott's place.
