Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

Mercedes was really great to work with on all our planning. We were seven people in the villa. It was as advertised and the pictures were accurate. The views were spectacular and the pool was great. There was plenty of space to lounge during the day and in the evening. We did swim off the rocks out front. We are good swimmers but it was a bit tricky given the wind and waves. We had a very windy week but I imagine it would have been much easier if the water was calmer. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels, etc. The A/C worked great. The lighting isn't the easiest to figure out but we got it eventually. The kitchen had pretty much everything we needed but took a day or two to find everything. Make sure you pick up your own coffee filters, detergents, garbage bags, etc. They aren't provided. Also know that the grill is charcoal only but it works fine and takes getting used to for those of us used to gas grills. Probably the best thing to do is stop at the Centrum grocery store directly from the airport and then go to the house. That store has everything you need. Prices are about the same as in the US. Make sure you buy ice at the store as well for the freezer and for making cocktails. We cooked half the time in the house and went out the other half. It's a good half hour drive to Willemstad but easy to park and small enough to walk everywhere. We had the best meal of the trip at Perla del Mar at Punda in Willemstad. We also had fantastic shrimp tacos at the restaurant at Blue View Apartments at Playa Forti. Make sure to check out the cliff jumping at Playa Forti. We all tried it but not for the faint of heart. One of us climbed Mount Christoffel and that was great and had a super view of the whole island. We also went to Shete Boka National Park and walked from one end to the other. That was spectacular. Overall this was a very relaxing holiday and the villa really allowed us to wind down. It was great to go back to at the end of each day and was just nice to "hang" out at during the day. The sunsets were great. I'd definitely recommend this villa and thank you Mercedes for being so easy with work with and fast to respond to our questions.

Simply Breathtaking Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa met all of our needs and truly went above everyone's expectations. We visited Curacao in October and had a wonderful time. The villa (we feel) is perfectly located on the island. It is really central to everything. If you are more of a 'big city' person then you may prefer a resort in Willemstad but otherwise this location is ideal. It is in a gated community and therefore extremely safe. The villa itself is truly beautiful with grounds to rival any 5 or 6 star resort. Wonderful, cozy daybeds and lounge areas scattered throughout the property create both an attractive focal point and real global intimacy for numerous couples. The pool is wonderful to cool off in and the ocean access is great. Regrettably the winds were extremely high throughout our visit so we couldn't fully appreciate the snorkelling right in front of our villa but the best beaches were 5 and 10 minutes away so that really didn't matter. The bedrooms had efficient air conditioning units that made sleep extremely comfortable. We are a family of 7 with 5 children aged 18, 15, 13, 11 and 8 and everyone was thrilled. Could not recommend this place enough.

Adult Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We took our 3 adult children and had a wonderful vacation. The home, landscape and ocean view were spectacular. Although we could have spent the entire week at the house, situated on the ocean with a wonderful sunset view, we really enjoyed forays into town. I would definitely recommend this villa to anyone. Lots of games for kids, books, a grand piano and great kitchen with everything you could think of to prepare gourmet meals.

Far exceeded expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 just returned from a lovely 9 days at this home and were so torn to leave. It is special in every way...the openness, the gardens, the sounds, the comfort...I could go on and on. We spent more time at the house than we typically ever do on vacation because it was so lovely that we didn't want to leave. We grilled out a number of nights outside in the lovely dining area lit by candles. It was stellar!

Truly, I felt like we were in a movie...it was that special. We plan to return someday and live it all over again.

Don't hesitate to take your family to this heavenly estate.

absolutely lovely house

  • 5 of 5

This is an extraordinarily comfortable and pleasant place to spend a week or two. The photos look nice but the house and gardens are actually more attractive.

The place is spotless and everything works.

The owners are pleasant and prompt in correspondence.

The house is brilliantly planned with each bedroom isolated from the others.

There are five different places to dine inside and outside.

The pool is perfect for children. It is easily visible to watch but can be closed off to keep children away if desired.

The ocean sounds are soothing. Access to the water is by ladder but easy even for an old guy like me.

The coral and fish are excellent. My son and his wife say it was the best they saw in the NW part of Curacao.

I would recommend this villa to anyone

There are many things to do nearby.

The area is secure private, and quiet.

Five star tropical villa - really has it all!!

  • 5 of 5

This is not a holiday-house, it is a wonderful family home, tastefully furnished and wonderfully kitted out with everything you can think of. With 4 adult couples and 2 babies we comfortably stayed 2 weeks. The grounds have lots of space and countless little private corners. Dining in or out, all possible. Getting in and out of the sea never posed any problem to us - youngsters AND elderly (60+). The secured estate feels very safe, and is very quiet. For a leisurely and luxurious 'away from it all' experience this is really it.
