Curacao Townhome Rental Photos and Description
2 Story Townhome, 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)
If you want to experience, enjoy and relax in the Caribbean without the touristy crowds, cruise ship mobs, imported souvenirs and over-priced hotels and restaurants, then Curacao and this island getaway and Westpunt is your place. Our 2-story townhome is just steps away from the waters edge and an unobstructed view into the blue sea.
There are stairs cut into the cliff wall, so you can swim, snorkel and dive right from your front steps, while Curacao's five most beautiful beaches are within five minutes drive (one is just 2 minute walk away). No matter the time of the year, you'll be cooled by Westpunt's famous and welcome breezes -- like the sun, they're a constant.
If you're a diver -- or want to become one -- this is the place with one of the world most awarded dive operators just minutes away. This is a chance to experience some of the Caribbean's most incredible undersea spots -- tops being our famed local reef: 'Alice in Wonderland.' Choose your own daily activities from diving, to mountain biking or a hike up Mt. Christoffel in the adjacent National Park.
Our townhome has all you'd hope for in a 'home away from home' -- it has a fully equipped kitchen (hot and cold water kitchen sink) and open-plan living space with sofa bed for extra guests, to the second story king-size bed and spacious balcony. The best TV in Westpunt is 'terrific view' but we do have Direct TV, wireless internet, linens & towels, screened windows & doors, hot-water showers in both baths, air conditioners, ceiling and portable fans.
You'll probably spend most dinners right on the balcony watching the incredible sunset, but there are 5 great restaurants nearby from the diver's hangout cantilevered over the cliff to one of the most elegant landhuis dining experiences you could ask for is located 5 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My husband and I stayed November 2012 at Marazul that I will high rate, because of all the things that the other guests wrote are true! I'll recommend for any age couples, families with any age kids, and young adults that are looking for a super relax holiday. This is a complex of houses, and each has an owner. Some of them let the manager (Tommi) rent them; other rent their own house by themself, so there are different way to rent at the Marazul (that's also why there are different website). We used the website we found on tripadvisor, and we rented through the manager Tommi. Arrived on site Sunday morning, and the the first people we met were the brand new owner of the unit, Chris and his wife. They was incredible kind and helpful in any possible way. For example there was one of the windows upstairs (the one for the mosquitos) broken, and Chris fixed for us, during his holidays, and we didn’t even ask. They were full of tips and advice and they let me use their washing machine. There is one in the parking lot, but you need token (5$ each), and you can buy it from Tommi. Unfortunately Tommi was at the resort only in the morning and we had boat diving in the morning, so not many chance to meet him. Anyway no doubt, if is Curacao, should be Marazul!
Andrea & Chris are hard working professionals living in Charlotte NC, USA. We are adventurous types who prefer fun in the sun action packed vacations. We like to do things on our own agenda and don't prefer hustle & bustle. We have been snow skiers, water skiers, boaters, jet skiers, hikers, swimmers and fitness junkies, but scuba diving is our true passion. Diving is relaxed excitement if that make sense.
We definetely prefer nicer things, but have no interest in anything that is pompous or pretentious. Good service is always nice, but we more often prefer catering for ourselves.
We take a lot of pride in our approach to life, the impact of the choices we make each and every day, and are firm believers in karma. We strive to excel with our honesty, and to treat people fairly and with the utmost of respect.
We have been vacationing in the Carabbean for many years. The island of Curacao however, is the only one that kept drawing us back for repeat visits. Initially we were staying at the 'hotels' near the city of Willemstad. Without fail, we always found ourselves making daily trips to the Westpunt side of the island. The beaches, mountains, diving, north shore boca's and relaxed pace are all splenders that are unrivaled elsewhere on Curacao. We finally asked ourselves, why are we staying in Willemstad....Westpunt it the place to be! So for our next trip we researched villa's in Westpunt, stumbled upon Marazul and ultimately booked a stay. The moment we walked into the resort, we know we found something very very special. The thought of actually owning an oceanfront villa in the Caribbean consumed the balance of our vacation. Until now, the idea was only a dream. But Marazul was different, we felt at home. The day after we returned to Charlotte from our vacation, we contacted the potential seller, and ultimately made the purchase. We had found our dream come true. In September 2012 we decided to purchase another townhome in Marazul. 8B became another dream come true. We would love to share our our piece of paradise with you.
We could describe a thousand reasons why you'll love our home in Westpunt -- but then there'd be no surprises, no discoveries that are yours alone. One thing we will say, if you want to be in a relaxed atmostphere without crowds, you can find it here. The things we like best about Westpunt and Marazul Dive Resort aren't things at all -- they're people. The owners and vacationers who stay here are the best! We all want to enjoy paradise, it's just fun every now and then (or every night) to share it with new & old friends over a breath taking sunset.
