Everything You Want In a Vacation Home and More

  • 5 of 5

What a place Enchantment Villa is. Where do I begin, well maintained property, stunning view with your own pool, fabulous resort beach, pool, and spa, or top-notch resturant.

We stayed at the Enchantment Villa for a week and were overwhelmed by what the property had to offer. The home itself is meticulously taken care of with a well-stocked kitchen with an oversized refrigerator/freezer which is a necessity and rarity in the Carribean. The bedrooms are good sized and the beds comfortable. There are plenty of towels to dry off with and the pool is amazing to watch the sunset with drink in hand. Lots of room to lounge and catch the Caribbean sun on the lanai for your friends and family.

We encountered few mosquitoes while there and the villa has bug nets installed so they remain outside but the breeze and view remain. With that said there seems to be a nice breeze blowing most of the time that keeps the bugs down. Its quiet at night and there a billion stars to gaze at with very little light pollution.

The gated community is a safe environment with 24 hour security. There is no rif raf or criminal element to be seen. The resort beach/pool/spa area is a 4-minute walk or 1-minute drive from the villa with plenty parking. Once there it's an unbelievable facility. The large infinity pool is flanked by the spa on the right and the tiki bar on the left. There are plenty of places to lounge and soak up the sun. It's clean and having bar staff delivering you drinks is a nice touch. From there you can walk down to the beach area where you will find an elevated beach with two large staircases that bring into the Carribean. There is a pier and platform for you to jump into the water as well.

The beach is about 200 meters long and 20 to 25 meters deep. It has ample places to lounge. Servers take your food and drink orders. Paradise found! If you like to scuba dive or want to learn, there is a full-service dive shop on the premises. Curacao is known for some of the best shore diving in the Carribean. This location does not disappoint. I dove 4 times and was in amazement at the wildlife as well as the clarity of the water. If snorkeling is your thing then you can walk in from the stairs and feast your eyes on the aquarium below you. Amazing! Willemstad is a short drive away to get all your groceries and shopping done. If you have the chance to book Enchantment Villa, do so without hesitation!

ENCHANTING !!!!

  • 5 of 5

The villa is wonderfull. Everything you need is there. The view is absolutely fabulous. The private pool is is very nice and clean. Birds are singing, sunset is wonderfull.

We certainly will come back.

There is really nothing to complain.

In a few minutes you have at Coral Estate the best restaurant of Curacao: Karakter, the nicest diving school ( Padi five star, Republic divers ), the most beautifull beach of Curacao ( and Aruba and Bonaire ) with a very kind ( free ) service from the restaurant. The beautifull sea were you can swim and have fun, snorkeling, corals, al kinds of coloured fishes and so on.

So dear Bob and family thank you very much that we had the chance to rent your villa. It is and was ENCHANTING !!!!!!

One Thing the Traveler Needs to Know

  • 3 of 5

Everything advertised is true. The house is cute and the patio with pool is very nice. What is not told that you need to consider is that this villa only has wall unit AC in the bedrooms. That wouldn't be a problem except that the Kitchen window is not really a window. Its a shutter with a screen. And in the instructions that you read when you get there, you are told to keep bedroom doors shut when running the AC because it will go straight out the window if you open the doors. My family likes to grill our food and swim at night. This was a very uncomfortable experience. With the heat of the day the house becomes a little oven infested with misquotes. And there is no escape since there is no way of closing the house. I was eaten alive by misquotes first thing in the morning and every evening before bed. The heat was pretty bad but the body will adjust to that. Ok... but with that said, it was a very nice place, well equipped in the kitchen, nice grill and beautiful pool. If Bob could cover that kitchen window and let renters run the AC at night throughout the entire house (which is only 1200 sq. ft) I would have given this house a 5 star. But without AC in common areas for a family who eats in, this could be quite uncomfortable. I am very surprised that no other review mentions the lack of AC and the open window. Oh and it needs a new coffee maker. I washed that thing every day and it is a little cleaner now but the stains over the years I could not scrub off.

I liked the location and Coral Estates is a very nice and safe community. I would even stay at the enchantment villa again, but I would board up that kitchen window and run the AC :)

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We love to share our home with visitors from many parts of the world. As with any home, even one in paradise, may have an occasional issue that we as home owners need to address. However infrequent, we pride ourselves on taking care any unforeseen issues immediately. We also handle every booking personally, we have numerous communications with each guest and provide a full explanation of our villa on HomeAway. HomeAway states "Each of the bedrooms have their own dedicated air conditioner, so each bedroom can be as cool or hot as you like. The air conditioners are new and quiet." HomeAway also outlines what areas are open and what areas have screens. Additionally our first contact with potential guests points them to our dedicated website, www.enchantmentvilla.com, where we state "All three bedrooms have their own dedicated air conditioner. The main living space is cooled by the constant trade winds and ceiling fan". We apologize for any inconvenience or discomfort you experienced on your visit to our home. As with many tropical islands, where hotels offer fully air conditioned individual rooms, traditional homes rarely have air conditioning throughout. The vast majority of homes within Coral Estate have the same basic style and air conditioning in the bedrooms only. If you are looking for a fully air conditioned experience a hotel is your best choice. Most of these homes have a significant amount of outdoor living as well as open air common living spaces. The beauty of this is the smell and feel of the tropics, the downside can be an occasional geckos inside or mosquitoes after a rainfall. We are hopeful that overall you had the opportunity to experience the beauty of the island and had time to relax and enjoy your family vacation. Thank you for your stay as well as your feedback as we are always looking to improve our guest experience!

Amazing Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED our stay at enchantment villa! The house is in the perfect location - not far from the airport, just far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Wilemstad, and so close to incredible beaches. There is a beach, restaurant, and dive shop all within a few minutes walk in Coral Estates. It was so convenient to get our scuba tanks from here and head out for the day or enjoy the great diving right there. When we were not snorkling or diving, we were sitting out on the lanai taking in the breathtaking views of the carribean ocean. The pool is just perfect to cool off in or just float in the sun. The kitchen is very well equipped and has everything needed to cook a great meal. We have rented many houses in the carribean and this is by far our favorite! We will definitely return!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our week at Enchantment Villa could not have been better. The villa is exactly as shown in the photos. It is large and handles 6 people easily. The kitchen is well stocked with supplies, dishes and cooking utensils. Towels and beach towels are provided. The Wi-fi and cable a plus. The weather cooperated with no rain, sunny skies, and balmy evening breezes. The snorkeling and scuba excellent. The owner is more than helpful with suggestions of where to eat, etc. We hope to return to Enchantment Villa.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Enchantment Villa is everything that it is advertised to be. The Villa is clean and well equipped - this is a perfect place to stay for a week. Our two kids (ages 7 and 9) had a terrific time in the pool. We mostly did day trips to other beaches since the Coral Estate beach is not really suitable for small kids. You will definitely want a rental car - driving on the island is easy. I would highly recommend Enchantment Villa for anyone planning a week or more in Curacao.
