The house was lovely, clean and comfortable, just as presented. We like a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of town. If that is what you are looking for, this is the place. This is our 5th rental in the Caribbean and yes we would recommend this house. The community is peaceful, secure, and the shrubbery around the house gives you all the privacy you need. As stated, the main living area is not air conditioned, but we got used to it. The back sliding doors open fully to the pool-patio area, and as the owner recommends, we opened the front door for an effective breeze; it is almost like living outside, and it takes a little getting used to. But we enjoyed it, and given the choice, I would choose the pool over a house with all A/C. We very few bugs, even at night with the lights on. (September ). The A/C in the bedroom was nice for sleeping.

The house was hot when we arrived, and it does take awhile to cool off. I recommend you plan ahead; know that you will be hot and tired when you arrive, so just get out your bathing suit and hop in the pool! Unpack later! The infinity pool, the view of paradise, what more do you need!

We appreciated the well equipped kitchen, including all utensils, cleaning supplies, dishwasher, and basic condiments like salt, oil and a few spices, etc.

And Gino, the property manager was helpful, not only at the house, but with island questions like where to shop, etc. Thanks Gino!

We recommend you get your groceries in town at Centrum, first thing, as the owner recommends. There is not much available near the house.

We like to snorkel, we did find some decent spots, but clearly Curacao is more a dive destination. We liked the beach at Porto Mari, which is nearby. Cas Abou was also very nice, both charge a fee. Daaibooibaai was Free, nice and close by. All nice for sun, swimming, diving or snorkeling. Of these three, we found the best snorkeling on the left side of Cas Abou, we were essentially under the cliff wall, there were lots of fish and the coral was colorful.

We ventured all the way to the peninsula on the far side of Willemstad, on the far side of Caracas Bay, past Fort Beekenburg to snorkel the sunken Tug Boat. You will have to ask directions, it is a long drive.

Bring cash for gas. Stations don't seem to take MC/Visa/Discover.

Have a great trip!

Owner's Response: I love the open air living at the house, glad you enjoyed it. The privacy is a real plus! You went to places I've never been, I'll explore on my next visit. The beach choices are so endless depending on what amenities you would like. Porta Marie is one of my favorites. Thanks for the additional advice for future guests. Come back soon!!!!!

Perfect property for a great holiday in Curaçao

  • 5 of 5
The property lies in a calm, civilized area, close to some of Curaçao's most beatiful and accessible beaches and has a beatiful view over the pool on the Caribbean sea, The typical trade wind of Curaçao sweeps through the house which makes the house and porch comfortable even with high outside temperatures. The house is clean and contains everything for a comfortable stay in the tropics. The pool is lovely! And well-maintained. The property and its environment were major factors to make my holiday in Curaçao an exceptional one. I'd truly recommend a stay at Dolphin House to anyone.

Great Honeymoon Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a very enjoyable time at the dolphin house. We were at the house for 7 days on our honeymoon!

We got in late the first night and stayed at a hotel in town that was very hard to find on account of most of the streets are not really named except for on the map. However the next day the Dolphin house was simple to get too, especially with Nancy's directions.

The house has more inside than when the pictures were taken (an island thing with a toaster oven and place to prepare food, a bookshelf, better seating in TV area) and it also is bigger than the pictures make it seem.

There were a number of minor maintenance issues but nothing severe enough to call the property manager - I left him a long detailed note when we left. He was pretty hands off otherwise. He called us midweek to see if we wanted new towels and such, but that was all we heard from him. We did get to meet the pool guy who came to clean the pool while we were home.

It is like living outdoors. The birds are very friendly and will come right in the house. There is a light for the pool on the side of the house that we didn't discover until our last night! :-P

We did a number of fun things around the island but the house was delightful enough that we didn't even leave a couple of the days. Wine glasses were conspicuously absent, but there were plenty of other fun dishes to use. It was always a delightful temperature, though the A/C was nice at night.

We spent $80 dollars on groceries for the week for the two of us and ate out only a handful of times.

We went down the hill to the Karakter to eat dinner one night but it was dark and we did not realize there was a large beach until we randomly stopped down a different day to watch the sunset! We got to watch that sunset while standing in the ocean :-)

One other notable experience was when we climbed Mt. Christophel, and when we got to the top, we ran into a girl my wife knows from our home in Eau Claire, WI! Small world.

Overall, we are very pleased. Oh, and Nancy was very generous to us, giving us a couple "honeymoon extras." Thank you, Nancy!

Owner's Response: So glad you had a wonderful time at Dolphin House for your Honeymoon. Your right I am in the process of updating the pictures as I have put in new comfortable living room furniture and an island for the kitchen. Sorry the property manager didn't mention where the pool light was. Wine glasses, hmmm, there were big plastic wine glasses in the cupboard, don't use the glass ones much because we are always out by the pool. I'll pick some up next time I'm in town.
Sounds like you discovered a lot of fun things. Best wishes for your new life together.

Absolutely Gorgeous & Relaxing

Absolutely Gorgeous & Relaxing

Nancy's home is very comfortable and the location provides an amazing view of the Carribean. We did some sightseeing and dined in great restaurants, Mussels at Landhause Daniel were a favorite, but truly enjoyed going to the supermarket and being able to enjoy breaksfast and grill on the patio and take in the view. Karakter is a wonderful restaurant located at the base of the subdivision with a private beach. The food was very good as was snorkeling and the beach. The last few days we didn't even leave the subdivision. We awoke to the view you see here had breakfast on the patio or went down to Karakter where we would get chocolates with our coffee and the best omelet ever, had massages by the pool and relaxed at the beach below then finished with dinner at Karakter or grilled on the patio. It was the most relaxing vacation I have had in years. The best thing i can say here is that this property allows you to have the kind of vacation you desire. You can go go go and tour the island if you choose or you can simply relax completely on the patio and beach and never leave the area or do a combination of both. We did both but once we settled in there I look forward to going back and never leaving the subdivison except to pick up groceries and maybe right down the road for another order of mussels.

A dream Villa

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to stay. We have been renting Villas all over the world for the past 10 years and this villa was a really special one. We loved it from the minute we entered it. The open concept made us feel that we were living outdoors the whole time. Also Curaçao is a great place to visit. We rented a car and we went everywhere. We also love fish and we tried the local lion fish at williwood on Sundays only and it was out of this world.
People are so nice here and the beaches are great . 1 of our favourite beaches was Kalki beach about 20 minutes drive from the villa.

A very lovely and private villa which is in a very safe, gated community. The villa had everything we needed except snorkel gear!! I highly recommend this for couples who want total privacy!

Owner's Response: Cindy, Glad your time at Dolphin was enjoyable and private. I try to think of everything you would need. I have found most guests would prefer to bring/buy their own snorkel gear for sanitary reasons. Please come back soon!
