Our first VRBO experience and our first time to Curacao. We were a bit apprehensive and nervous being first timers, but boy are we ever glad we made both choices and forged ahead with renting this property and visiting this Island. Everything about this Villa is as exactly as the owner and pictures have represented. Communication with him was excellent, all of our questions were quickly answered and he is very trustworthy. He even surprised us with a phone call very early in the process of renting the property. The MDR property is beautiful and the Villa more than met our needs. It is very clean and well stocked for your stay with cooking utensils, plates, silverware, etc. Some snorkel equipment and beach toys, outside chairs and tables, bath and beach towels, wifi and satellite tv. Just pack your swimsuits, clothes, and personal items, then stop for your groceries and libation needs at Centrum (on your initial drive to the west end) and are you are golden. (navigating the island is easy...rent a car). The unit is an end unit and a very nice breeze cools the unit naturally. Air Conditioning is available but not a necessity. And the western view has the most beautiful sunsets you will ever see. The Westpunt area is peaceful and relaxing and we felt very safe. Property is gated. There is a wonderful pool for afternoon/after dive relaxation. Manager on site who actually stops by to check on you. Masseuse available. We cooked 3 dinners at the Villa and dined at Sol Food twice, and El Rancho once. Both eateries are good but Sol Food and its owner "Sunshine" are our favorites. Both are located only minutes away from the property. I can't find words to express how happy we are in making the choice to stay at this Villa and to visit Curacao. We were both near tears at our departure and are both missing it immensely as I type this review. We will definitely be back and highly recommend and endorse this owner and property. We wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else on the Island.
