About the property

Luxury Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8), Private Pool, Parking on site

Very private luxury villa on oversized lot in oceanfront neighborhood located 15 min east of Willemstad in the Jan Thiel area. It has grown to become the most desirable upscale beachfront neighborhood in Curacao. Very laid back residential style but with a full leisure service infrastructure. The house is located 300 yards from the beach.

There you'll find two beaches (dive school and catamaran sailing), five restaurants (ranging from beach bar style to fine dining), coffee+gelato shop,boutiques and a gym. There's a 10 mile (world champion) mountain bike trail starting 200yds from the house. Little under a mile the other way (at the inlet) is a marina.

All the while the house serves as your private oasis in the middle of it all. While I would recommend you go see the island and Willemstad, you can equally spend a private resort style resort style vacation just within the walking radius from the house. The house is perfect for a relaxed vacation in beautiful Curacao.

In- and outdoor living: Just like its name implies, Villa Royal is large and beautiful! This modern villa was built just a few years ago on a large plot at Vista Royal. The plot area is well over 2000 m2! The villa has 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms and is extremely spacious. And of course, it has all the luxury you would expect.

The living room is large but cozy at the same time. The sliding doors allow you to merge the indoor and outdoor life together. Feel like watching screen television is hooked up to the cable network, which gives you access to countless stations, including all the major US networks.

The kitchen is truly amazing, every little detail has been given attention. All kinds of appliances are at your disposal and the double door refrigerator has plenty of space for large parties. If you enjoy cooking your own meals, the large stove and cooking island make things as easy as it gets.

Huge private pool and location: The icing on the cake is the large pool. It varies in depth and is around 4 by 10 meters in size. The tropical palms surrounding it really make this a perfect Caribbean spot. There's an outdoor shower available to cool off after a nice swim. If you enjoy the sun, go relax and lay down in one of the comfortable beach chairs. The trees and plants surrounding the pool area ensure full privacy

The large garden has many different kinds of palm trees, banana trees and other tropical vegetation. Right next to the pool you will find the barbecue area.

The whole property is enclosed (6 feet stone wall) for your privacy and security.

Villa Royal is situated in the area Jan Thiel, on the East side of the island. Jan Thiel Beach is at walking distance and the Caracas Bay is two to three minutes by car. The city center of Punda is roughly fifteen minutes away

Scuba Diving in Jan Thiel : Scuba diving is huge in Curacao. Curacao is in the top 10 of best places to dive and it attracts drivers from all over the world. Jan Thiel Diving is only 2 minutes away form the house. The have beginners and advanced courses. Both my kids learned how to dive in 4 days (in 2007) at the Scuba Dive Center and both have been avid divers since then. It is an fun thing to learn and do for the rest of your life.

Why Villa Royal Curacao chose Jan Thiel

We have been visiting Curacao since the 90's. Staying with friends, in hotels and renting houses. We chose this porperty because it has so many advantages.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Open en ruim opgezette villa met groot prive zwembad en separaat barbeque gedeelte. De villa ligt in een rustige villawijk, met veel privacy en waar je heerlijk kunt genieten van het buitenleven: bij het zwembad, 's avonds bij de barbeque, bij het heerlijke zitje met mooi uitzicht op het zwembad en de sterren aan de hemel of de bliksem heel in de verte boven Venezuela.

De ligging is gunstig t.o.v.:

- restaurants; erg leuk is een loungebed diner bij Zanzibar, erg goed is De Kleine Wereld en de Boathouse, maar probeer ook eens een kleiner maar meestal zeer goed Curacaos restaurant !

- mooie stranden met vele snorkel en goedkope duikmogelijkheden: oa Zanzibar, bij Lions Dive en (stuk verder maar wel heel mooi) Cas Abao en Port Mari

- een bezoek aan Willemstad

Een auto is hierbij wel aan te bevelen, dit is overal (ook vooraf via internet) te regelen

S'avonds gebuikten wij de mosquito coils die je in de supermarkt BestBuy haalt (soort spiraal van een wierook achtig spul) die een smeulend rookgordijn legt die redelijk bescherming bied tegen muggen. Verder moet je misschien nog even wennen aan de vele (onschuldige) leguanen en gekko's die je overal op het eiland, en in de tuin of op de muur tegenkomt.

Al met vonden wij deze ruime villa met veel privacy en goede ligging erg aan te bevelen !

Exquisite home perfectly located

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with 4 adults, 2 you children and a teenager. Everyone loved the house. It was well laid our for us. The pool was surprisingly large. We have stayed on the island before. Jan Thiel is the perfect location to be near the beach, food shopping and many things to do. I've stayed many places and this was the best!

Gorgeous, private and perfectly located property

  • 5 of 5

Searching for our vacation destination was largely determined by this property. The location was central to all of the beaches, shops and activities you could want on a vacation. The rental process was easy and communication was great throughout the booking process, upon arrival and during checkout. There were 4 adults and we went slightly over our electric allowance for the week but only resulted in an extra $10 charge. The pool was amazing. Perfect refreshment from the warm sun after a day at Kokomo Beach, atv exploration of the island, a day off-shore fishing with Captain Gordo or shopping at the port. Open living at its finest, don't forget to pack bug spray. There are mosquitos! Boasae is an amazing dinning experience and the best on the island, definitely a must!! The house was well stocked with towels for showers and the beach. We cooked some breakfast and lunches and had everything we needed in the kitchen to do so. Our only complaint-our vacation ended. We loved our January 21-28, 2017 stay, another VRBO vacation success.

Beyond amazing

  • 5 of 5

Three couples spent a week diving and always rent a house rather than hotel rooms. This place was beyond amazing. The pool is big and clean, the rooms are outstanding and the rest of the house is well appointed. I cannot say enough good about the place. Once you get your bearings, it is an easy drive to town or grocery. There is a great sushi restaurant just down the street.

The 6 of us have rented houses on other islands before but this on takes first prize

A Tropical Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded our expectations! The bedrooms and common areas are all very spacious, comfortable and beautifully appointed, the ambiance one of pure delight and relaxation. For a family of 7, we had ample space to hang out together.

From the veranda you look out onto a tropical paradise of desert like plantings surrounding a good sized in-ground pool large enough for laps. The owner was very easy to work with and very responsive; the property manager was available to us whenever we needed him. We felt very well taken care of. The kitchen is superbly equipped. The villa is conveniently located in the neighborhood of Jan Thiel where you can find a lovely Dutch supermarket, restaurants right on the water, bars, etc. Good for the young crowd as well…We've returned home with wonderful memories of our stay at this villa!

Amazing outdoor space

  • 4 of 5

I rented the home and SUV for an extended family of seven. We were delayed by mechanical issues with our flight. We were scheduled to arrive at 8PM, but when we actually arrived after midnight the driver was there and they property manager met us at the home to check us in. They had just installed a beautiful new refrigerator and although they we're having issues with the ice maker and minor issues with a light in the bedroom and one of the shutters, everything was explained.

The home is as described in the listing. We loved the pool and back yard area. We kept the house open to the outdoors when we were home. We ran the dishwasher, and washing machine daily and the bedroom air conditioners at night and had no issue with the electricity allowance.

It's an easy walk to the beach, a grocery store, a wonderful restaurant called The Pier or to a catamaran sailing trip. We also did excursions with SUP and ATV Buggy Tours. They both picked us up at the home.

The owner is excellent at returning emails and answering questions.

A great time was had by all.

Simply Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Six of us celebrating a milestone travelled recently to Jan Theil for a week of fun and relaxation. We could not have been happier with our choice of accommodation. The location was perfect, the house was everything it said it would be and more and we had the benefit of having a vehicle to travel around the Island. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and the service we received from both Jolanda and the property manager, Arends, could not have been better. We would recommend this house to anyone looking to vacation in the Jan Theil area. It exceeded all of our expectation and if the opportunity ever presents itself we will certainly be back! Thanks again for everything.
