Property description

VILLA SEASHELL ~ Our oceanfront home is located in the gated resort of Coral Estate (24/7 security) on the west side of Curacao. It is the perfect place to stay with family and friends and enjoy the blue Caribbean sea, the warm sunny days and the starry nights.

The closest beach, with crystal-clear, warm, calm blue water, is only 200 yards from your doorstep (2 minutes drive or very short walk). It is perfect for diving, snorkelling, swimming, lounging, and tanning.
Here you also find the fine dine and lounge restaurant Karakter and a friendly dive school that besides offering PADI courses, also arranges boat tours and kayak rental.

THE EXTERIOR ~ the true key to our property is its West-facing position, and the absolutely amazing and huge back porch, and charming lower viewing thatched-roof cabana. It offers 8+ lounge seating, shade, a continuous sea breeze, the relaxing sound of waves, and a wide view of the ocean. There is always something to see: small fishermen boats, large cruise ships, pelicans, turtles, and because of the crystal clear water lots of tropical fish.

From the yard, you can walk to the deck above the Caribbean Sea. Here you can catch your own fish and enjoy the sunset.

The pool with a tiled sundeck and lounge chairs is an additional factor to enjoy...perfect for a dip when heading to the beach or out for a snorkel doesn't match your energy level.

THE INTERIOR ~Villa Seashell has an open floor plan with a living room, dining room, and a fully-equipped gourmet kitchen. Windows and shutters surround the villa and give panoramic views of the sea.

Since this used to be our primary home, our villa is not the typical vacation rental; it is filled with high-quality furniture, luxurious amenities, and architectural details.

Villa Seashell comprises 4 bedrooms all with en-suite full bathrooms. The two bedrooms on the first floor have two single beds, and the two bedrooms on the second floor both have a king size bed and entrance to a private terrace overlooking the Caribbean Sea. All bedrooms have air-conditioning and screens.

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

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Hi, my name is Linda Lou Huiskes, I am the owner of Villa Seashell in Curacao. 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 Curaçao:
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.
