This villa is owned by two couples: Ted and Sue who live in New Hampshire and Bruce and Nancy who currently live in North Carolina. We are all avid scuba divers who fell in love with the people, culture and diving in and around the waters of Curacao. We have been coming down here for 10 years and are constantly finding new beaches, attractions, restaurants and dive sites. We know you will love this island and our Villa as much as we do.
Bruce Shotland purchased this villa in 2007
We had The Breezes built 9 years ago after a diving trip to Curacao. After spending previous years traveling around to other Caribbean islands, we realized that Curacao offered us an amazing diversity of ethnic backgrounds, flora and fauna, beautiful beaches and consistently, the most amazing sunsets we had ever seen. The island is politically stable as is the value of the US dollar and almost everyone speaks English. This property is our heaven on Earth and we would like to share it with you. This is the perfect holiday home on the perfect holiday island, no matter what season, whether you are a scuba diver, sun worshiper, gambler, or gourmet.
Our villa is 2 level with large sundeck, private pool and porches on both levels. It offers 180 degree views of the Caribbean; many days you can see the mountains of Venezuela across the ocean. Our private pool offers total privacy for day or night dips to cool off. The split levels of the villa offer a nice, quiet separation from others sharing the house with you.
We couldn't have asked for a better location. The house was well equipped, comfortable, and perfectly suited our family of 6. The view, needless to say, is breathtaking. Amazing beaches are within close proximity to the house.There is also a supermarket close to the house, I would say about 15 mintirs drive. We did all of our grocery shopping there, which was very convenient.
The setting was so relaxing and enjoyable to us and our kids. We hope that sometime in the future, we are able to come back to the island and stay here again.
This is a wonderful neighborhood. It's in a great, central location on the island. It felt very safe. The neighbors were friendly. The house is very clean and had every amenity we needed. The owner was very nice to work with. The pool was lovely. There are so many birds flying around in the backyard. There is a complete unobstructed view of the water. You can even walk down to the water and use the steps to go in to swim/snorkel/dive.
I will say that if you are used to staying in a resort with central a/c, you may not care for the house. I've stayed in several homes on different islands and am used to (and enjoy) only have the a/c option in the bedroom. But I could see where someone who wants a completely cool house should look elsewhere.
We had a great stay and if I ever come back to Curacao, I will stay here again.
For our first visit to Curaçao, my husband and I stayed one week in this villa west of the city of Willemstad, then one week in a B&B east of Willemstad. Next time, we'll spend all of our time in the west, and avoid the traffic in town! This villa is perfectly located for a peaceful getaway on the more natural, less-touristy part of Curaçao. Quiet was valued there, with a specific policy limiting noise. Avid snorkelers, we were delighted with how much we could see at our "home" beach at the resort, and we enjoyed the ease of beach-chair service and meals there at the Karakter restaurant. There were also good food options nearby, especially the restaurants in historic plantation homes (landhuises). Compared with other beach destinations, we appreciated having water to drink from the tap, access to good groceries for cooking in the villa (try the Dutch stores), decent roads, and English spoken by almost everyone. We rented a car (GPS is recommended!) and traveled to a different nearby beach for swimming and snorkeling every day. We ate meals on the terrace where we saw fabulous sunsets and, on one occasion, dolphins passing by. It was a treat to have our own private, cool dip pool. A larger pool for the entire resort was under construction when we were there. The housekeeping staff was friendly and helpful, and the owners were very responsive and easy to work with. This villa gave a real sense of having a home of our own on this wonderful island!
A delightful sojourn and first-time visit to Curacao! The cottage is very clean, comfortable and tidy with all the amenities. Beautiful sunsets captivated us nightly and the cross-breezes kept us comfortably cool even in mid-summer. The pool was a wonderful way to relax at the end of the day. Gorgeous beaches are minutes away, along with historic sites. A great choice for divers, snorkelers, or beach combers. Willemstad is a short car ride away and serves as a charming Caribbean distraction.
Nancy and Bruce are gracious and helpful hosts.
This is a "can't miss!"
We have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and Curacao has become our favorite island. We were very happy and comfortable in this house for 6 weeks this winter. It has fabulous views, comfortable furniture, nice decor and a well equipped kitchen. We enjoyed cooking most of our meals, but also liked being able to walk to Karakter, the restaurant in the development, for dinner or dessert. Our family visitors had plenty of privacy in the downstairs bedrooms. We all loved relaxing in the pool after days of exploring the island. The location is close to beautiful beaches & great snorkeling and is a 20 min drive to Willemstad. We would definitely return to The Breezes!
All five of us - my husband, me, our two adult children and our son-in-law - agree that this was the best family holiday ever and we really, really want to go back. The house was absolutely perfect for us, allowing privacy for all of us as well as good space to be together. Each of the three bedrooms and the living room area having access to one of the two large balconies was a treat, as was being able to dip into the swimming pool whenever we wanted. The view was magnificent, the house was extremely comfortable both inside and out, we were only five minutes walk from the beach. We truly loved it there and felt incredibly lucky to be able to experience this spot of paradise. It was a great place to relax, but we also enjoyed our excursions to Willemsted, Christofel Park, various beaches. The combination of a well-designed house which immediately felt like home and the lovely island worked its magic on us and I for one would like to stay much longer than two weeks next time!
Our villa is a private villa located on the beautiful Coral Estate gated community / resort. It is centrally located on the island a short drive from shopping, restaurants and the airport.
