Great Location, Excellent accomodations

  • 5 of 5

We were on our annual trip to the Caribbean, these accommodations were exactly what the doctor ordered. The furnishings were modern/new and had a handy Washing machine and dryer. The condo is in a great location in Willemstad. It is a 5 minute walk to GREAT dining SeraFina (Italian) and Fishalicous (Seafood). These two restaurants are also HIGHLY recommended. It is probably a 15 min walk to Queen Emma bridge (although we didn't walk it) or about 5 minute drive. Mambo beach area is about a 10 minute drive.

The back porch is merely yards from the ocean with great views and a pleasant breeze! The 'semi private' beach is hardly ever occupied. You can't go wrong with this location.

Petra (property manager) even had a beer with us during checkout!

Beautiful property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for one week in late April for a family getaway. Petra, the property manager, was out of town on the day we checked in, so we were greeted by her husband who gave us a warm welcome and oriented us to the apartment and turned over the keys, as well as a cell phone for our personal use, that came in very handy during our stay for local calls. The apartment is very modern, was spotless, comfortably slept the five of us, and is located just feet from the ocean (and a private beach) as the pictures demonstrate. My wife and I grew very fond of the large walk-in closet in the Master Bedroom. The apartment is located in the Pietermaai neighborhood of Willemstad, a ~20 minute walk from the heart of Punda and the colorful Handelskade. We were very pleased to find and frequent several excellent restaurants in the immediate neighborhood (e.g. Fishalicious, Rozendaels, the Belle Terrace restaurant, and the Wine Cellar). We highly recommend this property and would definitely consider returning there if we go back to Curacao.

A place to remember

  • 5 of 5

This property is really nice. A very good value. Waking up to this gorgeous beach every morning was such a delight. Plenty of nice beach chairs and palapas . Not crowded at all.The winds were pretty strong during our visit so we had to drive to more West beaches for good snorkeling. The last day we were there the ocean was less rough so we could see the potential of great snorkeling right outside our door. Lots of fish in the lagoon itself.

Groundfloor corner apartment makes this unit special and more private.

The kitchen could use a few more spoons, towels. Paper towels to at least start and more garbage bags. Detergent would be nice to have for a few loads at least.

The master is the highlight. Big open room with spacious walk in closet.

View to beach out window.

The 2nd bedroom is nice for family but twins are not so nice for another couple. 3rd bedroom would be fun for small kids.

Having three bathrooms is really nice. Could use washcloths,. Starter amenities like shampoo/conditioner, as many people carry-on these days, would be nice.

Petra was extremely helpful and very responsive about fixing a few little things like the ice maker and microwave. Also very good communicator from the first inquiry.

The close proximity to many nice waterfront restaurants and being within walking distance of old Willemstadt and the floating bridge makes this an excellent location .

Beautiful sunsets...

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I visited Curacao and stayed in this lovely apartment for nine wonderful days! The apartment is quite lovely, very comfortable, and quiet! It is also well equipped and very clean! Petra is just wonderful! So warm and helpful! When we arrived at the apartment, she had orange juice and the local bread ready for us hungry travelers! That was so appreciated! Thank you, Petra!

The sunsets on the beach are amazing! It was so nice to sit out there at night and soak in all the color. And mornings on the porch were delightful! Can't say enough wonderful things about this place! It was just perfect!

Location Is Hard To Beat - Right On The Beach

  • 5 of 5

From this picture, it looks like you can walk right off your patio onto the beach. And you can. The unit is a perfect size for a family of four, or possibly a family of 5 with a young child. It has a spacious great room and master bedroom (with large bathroom), and an adequate second bedroom with a bathroom and two twins. The third bedroom has a nice bathroom, but is a very small room, suitable for a youngster.

The beach is generally very quiet, and protected by a barrier for calm swimming. The chairs are comfortable, especially if you use the cushions provided with the unit! There is also a table on the patio, and two large chairs. The patio is very spacious.

There are many excellent restaurants within walking distance, and we recommend MOSA, Rozendaels and Seasons (we were disappointed with Bij Blauw which is also a further walk). The area seems very safe, and there are usually guards around the Avila (a large resort hotel close by). The Strand is gated, and typically has a security guard on duty.

Petra, the property manager for this unit (E1), was very responsive, and even picked up a frew items for us upon our arrival. We enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
