We have visited Curacao from the 18th of September till the 5th of October. The last few days we've spent close to Willemstad in Hotel Marriott just to compare the Northern part of the island with the Southern part. I have to say we regreted that we did so. Would have stayed the whole time at Cindy's apartment and up in the Northern part.
So already before arriving, we were pretty satisfied cause Cindy sent us so many info on where to buy food, fill up the car, eat, visit or dive that we knew we were in good hands. Just skip the restaurant Janchiee's but other than that great hints. Sol Food was such a nice place! The owner Sunshine keeps you up to date regarding what's going on the island and the food is tasty. Trio Penotti again excellent food, great service.
So we arrived at the apartment which is spacious and the view from the balcony is beautiful. We tended to have breakfast downstairs though and enjoyed the sunset right beside the stonefence. This view right in front of the apartment is beyond imagination, beats Marriott's beach or view by far. The best beaches are close to Marazul dive resort with the white powder like sand. During breakfast we had the company of hummingbirds and could admire the lovely, funny iguanas which are mad about red and orange color. If you are lucky enough, you meet Igor who is the iguana with the hole in the extra skin under it's chin. Those are lovely creatures. They love to eat veggie and fruits. They always take it easy, sometimes small fights over food or best sunbathing spots but other than that lazy loveable lizards. They are also protected by law which I really liked.
Everything worked in Cindy's apartment apart from one tap which Renee repaired immediately when we asked him. He is the guy who keeps you happy, answers all your questions, repairs everything and has a great honest smile everytime you meet during your stay.
We could not have asked for more. We loved Westpunt, Cindy's home, the view and the nature. Plus Renee. Whoever visits Marazul Dive Center and meets Him, please tell him greetings from Janne and Gabi (the woman who rarely speaks :) from Finland!
We have to thank Cindy for our very pleasant and nice stay. She already knows that we are going to go back next year. We definitely recommend her apartment!
