Best apartment in the city
Excellent, this was our third time in this rental and we will be back.
Clean, cool, plenty of space for the price, walking distance to city attractions.
We loved it! Pleasant, spacious and cool. A great base for exploring the city and the island.
Awesome awesome Awesome
Great location near the beautiful city and water front and restaurants. The apartment was clean and spacious and pool is too cool!!
What a fabulous apartment! If you want to 'live like a local', relax on the private deck with your own plunge pool and stay in a renovated old dutch mansion house - this is the place for you! The pictures don't do the apartment full justice, the place was bigger than we expected and had beautiful beams on the ceilings throughout. The shutters ensure a refreshing caribbean breeze comes through the apartment all day, so air con is not needed at all times! Also the kitchen had everything you could ever need (including a fabulous toasty maker and coffee machine :)
All communication from first booking to arriving home at the end of the holiday was perfect. We didn't meet Inez but Erik was a wonderful host, we felt very looked after throughout our stay, he was on hand at all times for any queries, he picked us up from the airport (and dropped us off) provided some great recommendations and he arranged for a hire car for us to use throughout our stay.
Willemstad is a great city and we found some amazing beaches on our tours of the island! We will be back! :)
Thanks Jo and Linsey for taking the time to write us such a positive review! We're happy to know you liked the apartment and Curaçao. You're welcome any time!
Best, Inez Hagedoorn
Fantastic stay in beautiful apartment near waterfront
My husband, teen daughter and I spent five nights at Inez and Erik's property two blocks from the Willemstad waterfront. Inez was prompt on email exchanges and Erik picked us up from the airport for $20 total and checked us into their beautiful apartment.
Pros - Inez and Erik thought of everything to make your stay comfortable. The pictures are a true likeness of what we saw. The gourmet kitchen was fully stocked and the full-sized refrigerator had chilled water and ice cubes. Inez arranged a rental car at our request for $35 per day including insurance plus taxes that was dropped off and picked up at the apartment. The wifi was robust and the waterflow strong for hot and cold water. The bedrooms each have ac units for fast cooling and comfortable sleeping on smooth white linens. We loved the bathroom with the large rainshower spigots. Everything felt luxurious from the furnishings and linens to the beautiful thick historic walls, doors and windows. The patio was a perfect escape at the end of the night. We left all the windows and doors open until bedtime to enjoy the cool Caribbean breezes. We enjoyed the easy walks around Willemstad and nearby dining. A great plus to have cable tv, dishwasher and washing machine for vacation.
The only con was street noise, but bear in mind you are near the heart of the "city" action. There was road noise from cars and tour buses passing by the one way street and there was some renovation across the street during our stay. The bedrooms and patio are in the back though, so we still enjoyed relatively quiet evenings.
Highly recommend this beautiful vacation escape. Thanks to our kind hosts and thanks Erik for dropping us off after checkout at our hotel for the last night of our stay in Curacao.
The best Home to have, when you are Away from Home.
We LOVED this apartment! If we ever visit Curacao again, we would definitely book our stay here again.
We spent two weeks; one walking to many local sites or taking a bus, and the other week was visiting farther sites and beaches with a car that Erik rented to us that was very reasonable.
We used the beautiful deck area and plunge pool practically every day. What was especially nice is the pergola over the deck that gave you a shaded area if you were lounging or in the pool. Off the pool area is another room that stored pool floats, cushions and some beach supplies like a cooler to borrow. Also inside, a washing machine and a laundry line to hang clothes to dry that we used several times.
Like the other reviews stated, the kitchen is large and well stocked with all the kitchen gadgets you could possibly need. And the full-sized refrigerator is very nice. Since we were arriving on a Sunday, Inez offered to do some grocery shopping for us, so that we would have some provisions there when we arrived, which we really appreciated! Not to be missed: Just across the bay is the floating market where fishermen sell their catch-of-the-day and many fruit and vegetable stands are set up in the morning. It is an easy walk to the floating bridge or the ferry that takes you across the bay to the Punda shopping area. There are also many restaurants where you can dine with a view of the water that we enjoyed very much.
Erik and Inez made us feel very comfortable and were always available to answer questions or help us with a request.
It was great to have wi-fi and cable tv also!
Some helpful hints: Since cruise ships do stop in Curacao, we did an internet search of the cruise ship schedule to see when groups of cruise ship passengers would be in town and planned our excursions accordingly. Also across the floating bridge in Punda is a Tourist Information booth that helped us find a bus to Mambo Beach and Sea Aquarium that was very convenient. Many of the beaches have bars, restaurants, showers and clean washrooms, but they do charge a small entrance fee, which we were happy to pay for all the convenience
The apartment is situated in the historical center of Willemstad, Curacao.
Restaurants, shops, cafes, cocktail bars, Starbucks, a cinema, ATM/Bank, casinos and the busstation are all within walking distance.
Museum Kura Hulanda and Curaçao Maritime Museum, St. Anna Bay, Pontoon Bridge, the floating Fruit&Vegetable Market, the Riffort, the famous 'Handelskade' and the Mikve Israel-Emanuel Synagogue (1728) are just minutes away!
