  • Perfection! Could not have been happier!

    "We absolutely loved our stay at Dolphin House! Nancy Jo was wonderful to work with and clearly shows pride in ownership and a desire to provide a first-rate experience to her guests. The house was very spacious and accommodating - the great room couch was comfortable and a good size, as was the indoor dining area. The kitchen was adequate for fixing meals - especially with the portable island - and was well stocked. We also used the gas grill for cooking, which was great! We only used the master bedroom, and found it comfortable and with ample storage and very efficient AC. The real showstopper at Dolphin House is the outdoor space. The pictures are exactly what you will see, but of course not as stunning as the real deal. The infinity pool was crystal clear and a really nice size; the outdoor seating was very comfortable, and also included 2 nice lounge chairs, as well as outdoor dining. The hottest time of the day if you happen to be at the house was probably from about 3:30-5:00, so the pool is perfect then - or sit out front in the shade - an awesome front sitting porch and a seating area in the front yard with almost a 'grotto' set up. Nancy Jo also had coolers and beach chairs available, and anything you needed was just a mention away as Ingrid is a friendly, professional, and responsive property manager. Coral Estates is a first-class community- secure, pristine, and a definite Resort atmosphere. Karakter and Koraal down the hill from the house are great places to have a drink or to eat - we enjoyed an outstanding dinner at Karakter. As for Curacao - and the west end, it was fantastic! We had stayed for the week prior at a condo near Willemstad to enjoy that end of the island, but totally were blown away by the west end! Went to 4 different beaches based on recommendations from Nancy Jo's guest book and the great next door neighbors. Loved Portomari and the public beach Playa Lagun. We also loved the countryside, and visited Shete Boka park - don't miss it, but take water and sunscreen! Even did Mt. Christoffel hike which is a bit of a challenge but rewards you with an amazing view. All in all we loved Dolphin House and Curacao - it seems like each made the other even better! The people were friendly, the weather was deluxe, and the water, snorkeling, and views were breathtaking! Best vacation ever!"

  • Everything you could want and more!

    "My wife and I stayed 11 beautiful and magical nights at Villa Cerulean for our honeymoon. Everything you could ever ask for and more is provided at this stunning villa and if you happen to find something that you need to ask for, Don and his staff are ready and willing to make it happen. The first night, we arrived just in time for a beautiful sunset and met the wonderful Brigette, whom had our prearranged groceries and cold beer already in the fridge. Whilst we took in the outstanding view and sunset we were greeted with celebratory arrival champagne. After a brief introduction and tour of the house and property we were left with a plethora of materials/information on Curacao and where/what/when things are happening that helped us to enjoy our vacation and let the stress just melt away. The House: It has everything: a full kitchen, a/c bedrooms (much needed in July), large patio, outdoor shower, bbq grill, a palm tree for shade and a plunge pool for when the palm tree just isn’t enough. As if you need more, this villa is oceanfront with access to some of the best snorkeling we saw while on the island. I swam in the ocean every day right in front of the house with only the colorful, vibrant and friendly fish as my company. My only advice has nothing to do with the house, but with the gate at the top of the road, don’t worry if the code doesn’t work right away. Just keep trying, it will eventually work. : Upon the recommendations of the materials we were given we went to many different beaches, restaurants, and activities. First, we highly recommend you ask Angie about her walking, guided tours with her dog Golan. We did the Santa Cruz, Playa Santu Pretu (Black sand beach) and the Blue Room. I do not know if we would have attempted this trek by ourselves but with Angie and Golan it was easy and informative. The Blue room was awesome, from the varying heights of cliff jumps from 2 – 20ft to the amazing blue room itself. If there were more days in our trip we would have definitely gone on more of those tours because Angie is so nice and easy to get along with, and Golan is just a joy to watch, such a happy, intelligent dog. Playa Cas Abao is only a 2 min drive or a 15 minute swim, and was by far one of the best beaches we visited and as we were staying in Villa Cerulean, access to this beach was free! VRBO will not all me to post my whole review, but please ask me anything, I am happy to share."

  • Total Relaxation

    "Absolutely beautiful views, excellent privacy, crystal clear water. A bit of a drive from Willemstad. On arrival we were disappointed that it was so hot inside, especially after a long flight and getting a rental car (a must) in the un-air conditioned airport. The air and fans should be turned on a bit before guests' arrival to relieve the heat. We were surprised, however, to find some welcoming snacks, juice, and even a bottle of wine! The outside area is amazing. There are several comfortable seating and eating areas on the expansive patio, which included lighting for evenings, and a fan for when there wasn't enough breeze. I loved watching all the birds right on the property, especially the hummingbirds. The swimming right off the property was great, once we got the nerve to go down the ladder. There is an outdoor shower when you climb out. Playa Cas Abou, Porto Mari, and Playa Kenepa are gorgeous beaches with some palapas, dive and snorkel shops, food and drinks, and beach chairs. They do charge entrance, and for chairs. The only other complaint is that we weren't aware the landscapers would come early (I think it was on Thursday), and be there for hours with loud blowers. Had we known, we would have planned an early excursion for that day. We would definitely recommend this beautiful rental."

  • Perfect Honeymoon Getaway

    "I don't think I could adequately put into words how amazing this place is. Everything from the sunsets, the beach breeze, the lullaby of crashing waves, the private beach, the amazing hosts, and the perfect location- it all far exceeded every expectation we could have had for our honeymoon. Don't miss out on this, you cannot get this anywhere else!"
