I traveled with a group of 4 couples, all of us first time renters with HomeAway and all first time travelers to Curacao. We were absolutely blown away by the house. I'm not sure how many times we all said: "The pictures just don't show how wonderful this place is". I know that we read that comment a number of times before choosing this property but it is so true. The bedrooms and bathrooms are very nice, the common areas are large and comfortable and the pool and hot tub were amazing as well. Eating outside every meal was such a treat and the beach area was way bigger and nicer than the pictures show. We snorkeled right out front of the house, and while it is rocky to start with, once in deeper water, it was the most incredible snorkeling I've ever done, and I've done my share. The reef is so virgin with no other people diving or snorkeling here so it is a true wild reef that is so colorful and beautiful. The weather here is great as well and we were worried because the forecast called for 50% change of rain most days but we never felt a drop. It was partly cloudy everyday and the wind blew about 15-20 mph every day as well, but without the clouds and the wind it would be too hot. It was very nice with the breeze. And the face that the house opened up so nicely, the inside kept comfortable as well. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was very nice so sleeping was never an issue.
The owners had the house stocked with everything a person would ever need. From power adapters to bug spray to pool inflatables, there was nothing we didn't have. And Brigitte the property manager was awesome. She was available at all hours and answered all of our questions and helped with any issues we had. It was the most stress free, relaxing vacation I've ever been on and the island is full of beautiful people, wonderful food and it's easy to get around. The beaches are stunning! They aren't huge, never-ending sandy beaches like other islands, but they are tucked into these rocky coves and the water is so clear and blue it's a postcard at every glance.
This was a vacation of a lifetime and I would not hesitate to rent this house and enjoy the island.
