Our townhome in this gated, quiet, very private resort is true oceanfront (about 20 paces from the sea) with unobstructed views to the ocean and sunsets. Stroll from your lanai, past palm trees, bougainvilleas, the pool and palapas down to the sea - a private access from which to dive, snorkel or swim. The luxury of walking a few hundred feet to calm, crystal clear water of this quality can't be overstated. A fabulous reef and sealife are right here.
We enjoy consistent, unblocked breezes and never hear neighbors, dogs or traffic. All windows and doors are screened - allowing you to keep out the uninvited [mosquitos/geckos], without closing off the cooling winds. Our kitchen is very well equipped. There is A/C on both levels, hot water in the kitchen and both showers, fans, full size refrig+more. The bedroom has an ensuite bath, a comfy king size bed, and a view overlooking the sea. Everything you'll need to relax, unwind, and enjoy - the views, the sun, the water, your vacation
There is a lot to see and do on Curacao. You'll find that most of the development - the resorts, the homes, hotels, shops/businesses, traffic, and people are concentrated in and around the bustling, multi-cultural city of Willemstad. The city and old Dutch harbor area are worthy of a site-seeing trip, but you'll be glad to be returning to the quiet of the west end and your townhome.
GET AWAY - Come to the west end of Curacao if you are looking for the relatively 'undiscovered', undeveloped and uncrowded part of the island - where traffic, crowds, and congestion aren't available. What this area does have is beautiful, tranquil beaches, calm, protected seas with fabulous sea life, and a healthy reef system right off shore.
The water here is calm, crystal-clear, and warm. Our resort has private sea access that is never crowded. There is great snorkeling and diving just steps from your patio door - with 2 full service dive shops very close by. For variety, there are many great shore dive/snorkeling sites and five of Curacao's most pristine, uncrowded beaches within 5 minutes. Their is a sand beach an easy 300 yard swim or walk away. Two beautiful national parks and great restaurants [including 2 of the island's highest rated] are also less than 5 minutes away.
The resort is gated, private, quiet, uncrowded, and safe - with friendly and helpful on-site managers to assist you. There is secure off street parking, a beautiful pool and tropical landscaping.
The Unique Benefits of this Townhome:
Our screened patio doors [a small but important amenity that we guarantee you'll appreciate], front door and windows will maximize the cooling breezes while keeping out occasional mosquitoes and colorful geckos.
There are separate air conditioning units for the bedroom and the main level. You'll appreciate the custom blinds, full size refrig, and hot water at the showers and kitchen sink - small amenities that will make your stay more enjoyable.
You are sure to enjoy the fabulous view of the sea and sunsets from the bedroom and its adjoining deck, along with the bedroom's private bath, air conditioning, and the comfortable, king size bed w/memory foam pad.
You'll make good use of our patio furniture on both decks, the portable grill, the beach chairs, beach towels, portable coolers and fans - and you'll find that our kitchen is well equipped with quality cookware and utensils. The Wi-Fi connection, Direct TV, new LCD, and DVD player may be valuable if the quiet becomes unbearable.
If there are more than 2 guests in your party, there are comfortable accomodations on the main level, including another bath complete with shower, and a separate AC unit.
Anyone staying here will appreciate our location - wonderfully landscaped with colorful flowers and coconut palms and incredibly convenient to great swimming, snorkeling and diving in crystal clear, calm water. The location of our townhome on the resort is such that no buildings obstruct the sea breezes [which cool the townhome], and we are far enough from the resort's neighbors that we never hear dogs or traffic. The true ocean-front setting - just 20 paces from the ocean - offers an unobstructed view of the sea and our often breathtaking sunsets.There are games, books, artwork, and many other custom touches and small amenities that will remind you of home.
Marazul is not a catored, room service style resort/hotel - but it is a safe and quiet sanctuary incredibly convenient to the best beaches and natural beauty on the island.
Our townhome has no private infinity pool - but it is comfortable, clean, thoughtfully furnished, and very well equipped - in a truly spectacular location. You will find everything you need here to have a relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable island vacation.
We think you'll agree that it's more than a rental - it's a home that you are invited to share.
We are a 'semi'-retired couple who live most of the year in the Colorado mountains near the ski resort of Crested Butte. We have visited many of the Caribbean islands over the past 25 years looking for a place with great water/weather/people for a vacation home. We fell in love with the west end of Curacao, and Marazul in particular. The contrasts between the high altitude alpine setting of Crested Butte and the spectacular low latitude waters/scenery/weather of 'our' end of Curacao have been everything we hoped they would be.
We chose this [Westpunt] part of the island because it is much less developed, has far fewer people and cars, with calmer seas, and better diving and snorkeling than any other location on the island. The best of the island's natural beauty is found on this end of the island - including 2 beautiful national parks. All of our guests have agree that the accomodation of driving a bit further to shop is a worthwhile trade off. We also felt that the cooling trade winds were more consistent and less obstructed here than in many other areas we visited. The fresh water pool and beautifully landscaped grounds of the resort are clean and well maintained. The resort is very private, quiet, gated, with great ocean access and plenty of secure, off-street parking......and is never crowded.
