About Rael Donde

Angela is a Psychologist and Life/business Coach while her husband Rael is a Resort Manager. We understand people's need for comfort, hospitality and efficient and friendly service. We spend a lot of time overseas and love travelling. As we work in the tourism industry (e.g. resorts) we understand the hospitality business and we do our best for our guests. The property is professionally managed by a holiday rental management company who are close by and speak multiple languages, but we are also involved throughout to assure quality and to make sure our guests have a comfortable stay.

Why Rael Donde chose Jan Thiel

We looked at many properties in Curacao, and when we found this beach front apartment at the luxurious small scale La Maya Beach Resort (now called Spanish Water Apartments Resort), we knew it was in one of the best and most central locations on Curacao (near the famous Jan Thiel Beach). It's fantastic location right on the prestigious Spanish Water, on it's own private white sand beach, is truly unique. lay Maya Beach Resort is architecturally designed by renowed architect Henk Bolivar. The landscaped gardens with the two pools (incl. the large infinity pool) located right on the private La Maya Beach Resort beach, are beautifully designed with lovely palms and tropical plants. Its serene environment, though close enough to trendy restaurants and Beaches, will ensure our guests a restful vacation on Curacao.

What makes this apartment unique

The beach front apartment itself is the most luxurious and modern in the entire complex, and is in a fantastic location with Ocean and Spanish Water Marina Views. This brand new apartment has been upgraded with a luxurious kitchen with quality stone bench tops and European stainless steel appliances, a large kitchen island/dining table and a Grohe 6 massage jets shower tower w/monsoon shower head and quality bathroom fixtures. It has been tastefully decorated with modern design features.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Rael,

We had one of the best breaks ever in your appartement - thx for all of your kindly service given to us.

The appartement is really well equipted - the high quality level is not common all over the world... all the time when we were there we used the terrace with the amazing view...You promised not too much :) Sorry, can´t give you any advises to improve something, otherwise I would cry on a outside level.

Enclosed one of many taken pics - when we reviewed the day at the beach...

Once again many thanks, I must rate your appartement with 5*, and hope we can come back to Curacao one time...

Enjoyed the place

  • 3 of 5

Bert and his wife were lovely people and helpful. Everything you needed was in the place. Nice view and close to Jan Thiel beach and shopping area. Maps.ME is a must if you want to get around. We would stay there again. Thanks for an enjoyable stay! Mark Woodman

Lovely place, well kept, in an interesting corner of the island. Beautiful views. Nice people. The nearby restaurants were over priced and not so great... but the apartment has a good kitchen.

Beachfront with a great pool

  • 5 of 5

This was a clean and modern condo with a beautiful view, steps from the pool and bay. The bay is not for swimming, but the pool took care of that and there are beaches for swimming close be (drive). The is also a great grocery store nearby too, fun and funky restaurants to explore too (by car). The kitchen is fully equipped with the exception of a regular oven. The 2nd bathroom is broken into toilet and sink on one side of the hallway and shower and sink on the other side of the hallway outside the 2nd bedroom. It is small for four to relax indoors at night. There is a sofa with a chaise lounge and four bar stools at the counter. At dawn and all night the mosquitoes were fierce. The lanai is the living space, it was excellent, table for dining with 5 chairs and a sofa with two 'easy' chairs and coffee table along with a small bistro table. Everything was as described and neat and clean. The 'caretaker' Bert was beyond exceptional, very kind, attentive and considerate. He went well out of his way to accommodate everything we desired. Thank you for a great holiday in Curaçao!

Home With a View and What a View!!

  • 5 of 5

The agent met us at the entrance to Apt.#5c and told us to go inside. The balcony doors stood wide open and we were met by a spectacular view of a beautiful cove filled with small boats and of course, the view of our private beach and pool. Our seventeen year old son was rendered speechless and this is no mean feat.

The apartment is beautiful, light and airy, with every modern convenience one could wish for. The balcony, where we spent most of our time, is heaven. In the morning, drinking our coffee and watching the wildlife all around us waking up to another glorious day was always a great start to our day. The iguanas and geckos, the humming birds and bald eyed pigeons, became our neighbours and we looked out for them every day of our stay. In the evening, we sat on the balcony watching the sun disappear whilst drinking a cocktail before going out to dinner.

The grounds of La Maya are beautifully kept. It was always a treat to go for a swim in the pool in the morning and to relax there in the late afternoon, having returned from one of our trips.

This was our first trip to Curacao and I have to say that our stay at Apartment 5c has spoiled us for any future stays on the island. We really did find the most amazing home from home there and if we do return to Curacao, we will most certainly be contacting Rael again.
