Curacao Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 2 Bathrooms, sleeps 2-4

Ideal for independent travelers who want to get away from the crowds yet be right at the water's edge, our 2-story oceanfront townhome is nestled among lush tropical plants and swaying palm trees, cooled by steady breezes -- minutes from Curacao's five most beautiful beaches. Swim, snorkel and dive some of the world's most vibrant sites, including our famed local 'Alice in Wonderland' reef. Mountain bike, hike Mt. Christoffel, or relax by the pool in sunny 88° temps. Everything inside is designed for your comfort, from the fully equipped kitchen and open-plan living space with futon for extra guests, to the second story king-size bed and spacious balcony with glorious views from sunrise to sunset. Pluses include flat-screen cable TV, DVD & wireless internet, linens & towels, screened windows & doors, hot-water showers in both baths, air conditioners & ceiling fans up and down, computer table, wood balcony dining table, tiled serving cart, etc. Two dive shops & 5 restaurants nearby.

Things to Do in Wespunt and Nearby: There's lots to enjoy at our rural west end of the island -- diving, snorkeling, swimming, mountain biking, hiking, etc. Westpunt alone features six great eateries, from the famous Lodge Kura Hulanda and Sunshine's Sol Food where you'll find the island's best pizza, to the newest restaurant in town, Landhuis Misje. Just down the road, nature lovers will thrill to the 'roller-coaster' drive through Mt. Christoffel Park, home of Curacao's highest peak. There you'll enjoy sweeping panoramic views, prehistoric cave paintings, the ruins of an old colonial plantation houses, and lush bromeliads and rarely seen orchids -- if you time your visit right! Keep your eyes out for the island's fascinating wildlife, whether it be iguanas lounging in the sun, warawara falcons soaring overhead, or chattering green and yellow parakeets darting playfully through the trees. It's not uncommon to see a goat comically standing on its hind legs in quest of a tempting morsel high overhead.

Further Afield on the Island: Beyond Westpunt, the hilly landscape reminds one of the American West with its towering cacti, iguanas and arid climate. When not beach-hopping among 38 different beaches, playing golf, windsurfing or sailing, you can explore 18th century plantation Landhuises featuring historic museums, fine restaurants, even the internationally renowned Chobo Lobo distillery, producer of the only authentic Blue Curacao Liqueur. Other attractions include the oldest Synagogue in the New World, ostrich and aloe farms, a flamingo park, a stamp museum and an aquarium. And you won't want to miss the colorful Dutch Colonial capital Willemstad -- a UNESCO historic site -- for world class shopping and island crafts, dining at an international array of restaurants and bars, or tempting Lady Luck at a number of different casinos. Curacao has something for everyone!

Interesting Facts about Curacao: Curacao is simply fantastic! It's new to the tourist business and everyone goes out of the way to make you happy and in love with their home island they're so proud of. Very clean and safe, the capital city of Willemstad has undergone a renaissance, with new paving, shopping, more restaurants. A single walk over the Queen Emma pontoon bridge will amaze you. US and Canadian vacationers are just discovering an island that's been a Dutch favorite for eons. Though everyone speaks English and the dollar is accepted everywhere, there's a wonderful Continental vibe to the island that's intoxicating. Plus, Curacao is the most racially and culturally diverse nation in the world -- 56 nationalities among 160,000 residents! Discover all Curacao has to offer -- and we guarantee you, you'll return, again and again.

Review Submitted September 18, 2011 Date of Stay September 2, 2011

I loved this place! It's spacious, clean and quiet. The grounds are well maintained and landscaped. We loved our late night dips in the pool. The unit is exactly as pictured.There are all the kitchen accessories you need to prepare any meal. We grilled fresh fish one night and made pasta another. I loved the blender that was provided so we could make our morning 'green' smoothies. So much better than being in a big hotel and having to eat all your meals out! This end of the island is the best...all the nicest beaches are within a few minutes drive and the snorkeling is amazing! And the island's best restaurant is on this end of the island where we had my birthday dinner, Landhuis Misje. The owners of the townhome, provide all the information you need to insure a perfect vacation and went out of their way to help us with a much needed rental car at the last moment! They are so easy to work with and everything is taken care of...all we needed to think about was which beach to go to each day! Thank you for providing a perfect place to really relax. I will definitely recommend this rental to friends and relatives that visit Curacao and we hope to return soon!

Beautiful Ocean front resort!!

  • 5 of 5
We visited this resort for our honeymoon. The town house was in great condition with all the appliances you could need. A grill was provided on the back porch and we were able to grill out and watch the beautiful sunset most nights. There are walk downs behind the town house to jump into the ocean and we were able to swim to the next beach. The water is crystal clear and we were able to see many types of fish as well as swim with 3 sea turtles! Sol Food was a wonderful place to go to on the weekend. We ate there twice as well as got a pizza to go for sunday night football! Jaanchi's was also delicious, very authentic food. The resort was well kept and halfway through our stay the towels were replaced with new and the town home cleaned. We were able to have a consistent breeze with just the back screen door open. The resort was very welcoming and we met two wonderful couples who were able to give us the advice to go to shete boka national park as well as the breath of curaçao. They had visited curaçao many times and now choose to only stay in this resort due to the close proximity of multiple beaches. Playa lagun and both the big and little knip were a short drive away and had great snorkeling. We were able to swim with more sea turtles and saw so many different types of parrot fish! Although we chose to snorkel most days, there were multiple hiking trails recommended that we hope to try next visit. This resort was in a perfect location for a calm and relaxing vacation with the possibility of many wonderful activities. We hope to return next year for our anniversary!

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure working with both of you! I am so happy you enjoyed your honeymoon at Marazul in Unit 7B. You really captured the essence of the west side of the island in your review. There are lots of beautiful places to explore and lots of scenic snorkeling. I am glad you enjoyed Sol Food and Jaanchis. I hope you come back soon as I would love to have you!! Cindy

Great for divers - not as much for NON-divers

  • 3 of 5
First off let me say that this was very easy to book and the owner was very communicative and gracious. Because of that I find this a difficult review to write. To explain that let me divide the review into two parts; divers and non-divers. If you are a diver you’re going to love this place. There are many close places to enjoy the ocean even the one right off the cliff where the townhouse is located. While there are small private beaches in the area they are not recommended for safety’s sake and if you want one where everyone goes then you pay (about $10 per person).
The kitchen is well appointed the place is very clean and the staff goes above and beyond to ensure your comfort. I appreciated the cooler because we used it when we went to the grocery store which was a significant drive away. It does not have high end furnishings but they are comfortable and adequate. I loved the balcony off the master bedroom. There isn’t central air but there is air upstairs and down and with the fans on as well it was plenty cool. We found if we shut the bedroom door it was more efficient. I didn’t run the air downstairs most days – just left the fans on and the doors open.
For you non-divers (of which that was us) the western side of the island is not as populated so you’re going to take quite the drive to just about anything you want. You’re not going to find a plethora of restaurants and grocery stores. If that’s important to you then this location is not for you. The eastern side of the island is crammed with people, places to eat and things to do. Traffic is very heavy so from the townhouse location on the western part of the island you’ll spend over an hour getting there.
So because we wanted peace and quiet yet still have access to modern conveniences we checked out early (even though we were paid through the week) and moved to a resort on the eastern side of the island. The cost was only slightly more than what we were paying per night at the townhouse yet it was worlds apart. We had the relaxing venue we wanted with four top restaurants within walking distance of our suite. While I like being in a place I can cook SOME meals it was not my desire to cook EVERY meal and that’s what I found staying here. We ate at Sol Food one night and frankly after all the reviews I expected more. The food was just okay.
So we had a little bit of experience with both sides of the island but it was the resort that redeemed the vacation for us.

Owner's Response: The natural beauty, tranquility, and lack of people/traffic/entertainment is what makes the west end of the island most appealing. It was obviously not what these guests were looking for.
My great disappointment is that I send out a good deal of information to inquiring guests regarding what to expect on this end of the island. I am sorry these guests did not know what to expect and I must accept my share of responsibility for that.
The nearby beaches are well known as the most pristine and picturesque on the island. I’ve not heard any other guest or local say that they are unsafe, and we use them extensively when we are on the island. There is only one large and beautiful beach that charges and it is only $5.70 a car or 10NAF. Cas Abou is a beach definitely worth seeing.
I enjoyed working with these guests and am glad they enjoyed the island of Curacao on the east end.

Our Amazing Stay at 7B

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I went to Marazul Dive Resort for our honeymoon. When we got to the resort, it was dark out, but we were impressed how close 7B condo was to the ocean. We spent our first night, smelling the salty air of the ocean playing cards on the 2nd floor deck off the bedroom, excited to see our view in the morning. When we woke up the next morning, our breath was taken away by the clear, bright blue ocean and cool breeze of the morning air. We spent most our mornings enjoying coffee on the patio off of the family room, and the afternoons traveling in our reliable rental car to all the beautiful beaches, and sitting at the resorts’ pool about 100 feet from 7B. Our favorite beaches were: Cas Abou and Grote Knip. Cas Abou was especially nice because of the tiki huts available for shade, and also a bar with drinks and food available. Our evenings were spent walking to Rancho El Sobrino where we talked with the local waiting staff, and trying out all the restaurants Cindy recommended. We had a blast seeing the culture of the island, talking with the multilingual locals.
We talk very highly about Marazul Dive Resort for many reasons. We appreciated the quiet atmosphere of Marazul vs. Willemstad. The beaches in Marazul were beautiful with white sand and calm waters. The snorkeling, site seeing, and cliff jumping in Marazul was breathtaking. The Dive Resort is a locked condo complex, and you feel very safe and well taken care of. The friendly manager walks around in the mornings to check on guests, and to make sure they have everything they need, and give them advice on interesting places to visit. The view from 7B couldn’t be any more perfect, and the way it is decorated truly brings you to paradise. The pull out couch on the first floor comfortably fits two people, and there is plenty of sitting area for other couples to join for a game, or for visiting. We also loved sitting on the patio on 7B enjoying the wildlife.
Cindy was helpful, honest, and reliable. She consistently answers e-mails promptly and was incredibly informative of the island and nice places to visit. The description of our condo was right on, and pictures are beautiful but the real life space is even more beautiful! The space was clean and well kept. We will surely be visiting Marazul dive resort and will rent from Cindy again. We truly have nothing negative to say about our experience in 7B at Marazul Dive Resort in Curacao. Amazing experience!

Owner's Response: I am so happy you had a wonderful honeymoon at Marazul and on the island of Curacao.
You really captured the essence of the west end of the island. Cas Abou is one of my favorite beaches,too! I have never been cliff diving, but I am sure it would be fun!

You were great guests to work with on this trip and I hope you get to return soon!!

Outstanding!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Just got back from a truly wonderful vacation at Marazul 7B!! Cindy was extremely helpful in planning our trip and the unit was exactly what we hoped for and more. The surrounding beaches were spectacular and never felt too crowded. We loved heading to a new beach in the morning, coming back to the unit for lunch, then snorkeling at Marazul. While we snorkeled at all the beaches we went to, we thought the best was right there at the resort. Make sure to eat at Sol Food! The owners Sunshine and David are wonderfully friendly hosts and the food/atmosphere was so great we ate there twice. Overall we absolutely loved the island and will definitely stay at 7B on our next visit!!

Vacation November 21st thru the 27th

  • 5 of 5
This is a great place to stay. Westpunt is very quite and relaxing. We really enjoyed Cindy's rental property as our base for our vacation. The townhouse has everything you need. You must visit Casa Abou (best beach ever) and eat at Sol Food. There are plenty of snorkeling beaches to chose from that are close to this location. Just go to the beach and snorkel right from shore. There are also a lot of dive shops close that rent you tanks and you can dive from shore also. We really enjoyed Curacao and would love to go back sometime.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Mike. I am glad you and your wife had a good time. I have to agree with you on both Cas Abou and Sol Food. Cas Abou is my favorite beach and you can't beat Sol Food, both in food and hospitality. I am so glad you were able to do some snorkeling. Yes, right in front of Marazul there is beautiful sealife.

I hope you and your wife come back to Curacao sometime. I would love to have you!!

Absolutely Perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I just arrived home from celebrating our birthdays and anniversary at Marazul 7B. We could not have hoped for a better vacation! Cindy is an awesome host and provided us with so much useful information and hospitality. The managers Tommi and Uli are fantastic and sweet and will do everything they can to make your stay unforgettable. The townhouse has absolutely everything you need to enjoy your stay and is decorated beautifully. We toured the island in our rental car (necessary) and spent the day in Willemstad, but we agree that Marazul Dive Resort is the very best place to stay on the island. It is too beautiful to describe! We felt safe traveling everywhere and the local people were very kind and helpful. We had enjoyable meals at Sunshine's Sol Restaurant, Landhuis Meji, Rancho el Sobrino, Kurahulanda Lodge, and especially want to tell you to try Die Kosterkuche in Barber. It is open only Mon thru Fri in the eve; 5-8. The couple serves European style pancakes (close to crepes) which are delicious and you must try several different kinds. It is kind of hard to find since you must access it through the Catholic church property and sadly, the church is not a welcoming neighbor. The restaurant had only 2 tables and we were able to spend time with the owners who cook and serve the wonderful dishes. Curacao beaches were warm and beautiful but water shoes are a must since the water entry is rocky with coral. Cindy, Uli, and Tommi were a tremendous help to us when our flight home was cancelled due to hurricane Sandy. They made what could have been a rough situation seamless and calm. Bonus: we got to enjoy two more days on this beautiful island. We recommend Marazul 7B without reservation! As I said: "PERFECT"!!!

Perched 40' above turquoise seas, our oceanfront townhome is located in a small gated community of privately owned homes in the picturesque village of Westpunt. You'll enjoy breathtaking views miles down the coast, out to the horizon and across the bay, where the locals' colorful bungalows dot the hillsides, and small fishing boats and occasional yachts bob at their moorings. A diver's, snorkeler's and kayaker's paradise, Westpunt is home to 'Alice in Wonderland,' one of the world's most vibrant reefs. Playa Forti Beach and delightful local restaurants are a short walk away, while a 5 minute drive gets you to some of Curacao's most famous and beautiful beaches: Playa Kalki, Knip, Jeremy and Lagun. There's fantastic mountain biking and hiking on the nearby wild north side of the island, at the Boca Tabla Nature Preserve and Mt. Christoffel National Park. The market and Carnival town of Barber is only 9 miles away.
