    A Dutch-Caribbean whirlwind in Willemstad

    From pastel-colored townhouses to colonial forts, Willemstad is brimming with Caribbean charm. The Dutch landed here in the 1600s and quickly established a bustling trading port. Today, their legacy lives on in the form of red-tile roofs, handsome architecture and the imposing Fort Amsterdam. As you explore the city, you'll stumble across shimmering waterways, floating bridges and sun-dappled street cafes. Set in the heart of the Old Town, Willemstad vacation rentals promise a unique stay in one of the Caribbean's most captivating cities. If you prefer a quieter scene, snap up a hillside property overlooking the harbor.

    Discover Willemstad's cosmopolitan street scene

    Most vacationers arrive on Curaçao in search of sun, sand and a golden tan. The island delivers, with a string of sugar-white beaches to explore. There's plenty of action off the sand, with historic neighborhoods, such as Punda, packed with boutiques, galleries and breezy cafes. Otrobanda is known for its winding streets and restored Dutch mansions, while Pietermaai is a hotspot for Afro-Caribbean restaurants and upscale bars. Prefer to mix your own Curaçao cocktails? With Willemstad vacation rentals, you can raise your glasses on private sundecks, with sweeping ocean views.

    Meet Willemstad's "Swinging Old Lady"

    Nicknamed "Our Swinging Old Lady" by locals, Queen Emma Bridge is Willemstad's signature landmark. It spans Sint Anna Bay to connect the neighborhoods of Punda and Otrobanda. For a glimpse at Curaçao's colorful history, don't miss Museum Kura Hulanda. It's housed in a characterful 19th-century merchant's apartment and loaded with New World history, covering everything from the slave trade to contemporary Caribbean art. If you love the latter, head to Gallery Alma Blou, a 17th-century plantation house that's been converted into a cooperative art space.

    Flirting with Willemstad's flamingos

    Divided by Sint Anna Bay, Willemstad sits on the southern coast of Curaçao. Back in the 1600s, the Dutch were won over by its natural harbor and founded it as a Verrazano Narrows trading port. Today, it's a hotspot for cruise ships, sun seekers and luxury travelers. When you've had your fill of culture and history, why not use Willemstad vacation rentals as a base for exploring Curaçao? You can also explore world-class dive sites, such as Blue Bay, admire flamingos on the Salina Sint Marie salt flats and hike in the expansive Christoffel National Park.
