We stayed at Paul and Bertha's beautiful 2nd floor apartment for 2 weeks. Their hospitality was terrific. They are friendly and reasonable owners. They even gave us a welcome gift, a bottle of rose! We would stay again. The apartment is spacious and very clean. The furnishings are comfortable and modern, all sleek Bosch appliances. There is a dishwasher and a Siemens washer and dryer, very convenient for washing beach clothes. The location is in Piscadera Bay, near the Marriott. This is in the middle of the island, convenient to Willemstad and exploring. A large grocery store, called Centrum, is only a few kilometres away. The apartment is located in a gated and secured community, with friendly and vigilant security guards. The views from the large terrace are amazing, we spent a lot of time on the patio enjoying cocktails and the views! There is a full outdoor sofa set, and a table that seats six. There is ample closet space, and the air conditioning is effective. There are no ceiling fans though. The bed was comfortable but not plush, more of a European style. There are 2.5 bathrooms, modern with showers. Within the community, there is a shared pool within 150 metres walking distance from the apartment. The pool overlooks the Caribbean sea. The property is well-maintained and manicured. There is construction nearby, but we didn't hear a thing. The pool wasn't cleaned as often as we liked, that was our only observation. But it was under-utilized so you could have it to yourself. There is a public beach within walking distance down the hill, but we found it was not as clean as other beaches. Curacao has dozens of small, white sandy beaches you can explore. Our favourite beach was a private beach, worth the cost. We recommend Porto Marie, worth the drive. The snorkelling is good here, lots of colourful fish. The reef is recovering. There is a red algae problem in Curacao, so snorkelling isn't as good as it used to be. Other nice beaches are the 2 Knip beaches, and Lagun. For excitement and people watching, Jan Thiel is the place to go, though the beach itself is disappointing. You will need a car here to get around. Car rentals are cheap, so is fuel. Groceries are affordable for an island. Wi-fi is provided. Data roaming charges are exorbitant in Curacao, so arrange mobile communication in advance with your home carrier. The locals are friendly and Curacao felt safe. We didn't go out much at night though, there was so much to do during the day. Thanks!
