Casa Marise is a gorgeous sanctuary

A friend and I stayed at Casa Marise for a week in June. The home is spacious and elegant, and you can feel the history of the place from the moment you walk in--the proprietor's father built the home forty years ago, and all of the careful details--exposed beams, expansive covered brick patio, huge windows overlooking the sea--reveal the love with which the home was built. It is in excellent condition, and its location in the fishing village of Boca Sami could not be better. You're both close to town and the bustling eastern end of the island, and also a short drive away from quiet beaches and the more rustic western end of the island. The views from the patio are priceless, and there's a very local feel to the neighborhood--it's quiet and not overly touristic. Swimming and sunning at the house was so perfect, it was hard to tear ourselves way to venture to the many beautiful beaches nearby. It was fun to prepare meals in the large, well-appointed kitchen, and there was always a breeze off the sea to keep the house cool. Marise was very helpful to us, recommending good seafood places and other attractions around the island. She grew up in Curacao and is very knowledgeable about the island. The house is a magical place and well worth a few days, weeks, or months of your time!
