Overview

World Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 2

Our oceanfront townhouse in the Marazul Dive Resort is a two level unit, nestled between emerald hills and turquoise sea. Enjoy lots of privacy and quiet as our house is the very last one in a row of units facing the ocean -- there are no immediate neighbours on one side. You will love the superb panoramic view to the ocean horizon directly in front and relaxing lush greenery looking to the hills south. An ideal spot for those seeking tranquility and nature all-around!

Just a few steps from our front-door is easy access to fantastic swimming, diving, and snorkeling, with a professional dive shop nearby. Some of the most spectacular beaches in Curacao are just minutes away -- renting a car is advisable. Our house is fully furnished and air-conditioned, with all the comfort and amenities needed for a relaxing holiday. Expect tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Our place is all about rest and relaxation in an amazing natural setting!

Welcome to our tropical paradise in Curacao! Perched atop a cliff overlooking the sparkling waters of Westpunt bay, we’re one of 20-some houses of Marazul Dive Resort. Nestled between emerald hills and turquoise sea, our home sits about 25 paces away from the water, with easy access to great swimming, snorkeling, and diving from the steps carved into the coral formation cliff right outside our front door. For the scuba diver, our amazing house reef is just 200 feet offshore directly in front of the resort. The water is always calm and crystal clear, with an average temperature of 28 C, making for some unforgettable underwater experiences any time of the year. Many well-travelled and experienced divers tell us this is one of the best diving spots anywhere. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

As the very last house in a row of units facing the sea, we enjoy a lot of privacy -- amazing views to the ocean horizon looking west, and some beautiful mountain scenery to the south. From our upstairs terrace, the vista is completely unobstructed. At times you think you are in Bora-Bora, and the next minute you could be off the coast of Crete. We love the views, the fantastic sea surrounding us, and that faraway-from-it-all feeling. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Our house consists of two identical units, each with a living room/kitchenette and a bathroom on the main floor; upstairs is the bedroom with another bathroom. Mosquito screens on terrace door front door and all windows.The decor is modern and comfortable, including a flat screen cable TV and an iPhone/iPad dock with speakers. For families, you can rent both units with the connecting doors open on the main floor, giving you lots of space with two adjoining living rooms. All rooms are air-conditioned. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The village of Westpunt is 35 km from the airport and the main town of Willemstad. Far from the crowds, our part of the island is peaceful and serene with none of the usual trappings of tourism. The surrounding national park is unspoiled wilderness at its best, and being outside of the hurricane belt, the climate is a balmy 31 C year-round. The nearest beach is a 5 minute walk, while even more spectacular stretches of sand are a short 10 minute drive away. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

We have lived and travelled in many parts of the world, yet we consider ourselves lucky to have found this little piece of heaven on the little-known island of Curacao. Hope you decide to enjoy it too – it is definitely worth the trip!. . . . . . . . .

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the opportunity to stay at Patrick and Stella's unit in Westpunt, Curacao and want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. It was an amazing place to stay. Very relaxing and quiet. The unit was amazingly cleaned and had everything we needed for a 3 week stay. If we had any requests, we just had to email the owners and we got an answer almost instantly. The manager on site, Rene is just fantastic. He made sure we were all good and if we had an issue with anything, he made sure it was fixed by the end of the day. It felt like home. The Marazul Resort where it is located is great also. The views of the sunset we had each night was just outstanding. We did dive just down the stairs from our unit and saw some amazing creatures like spotted eagle rays, turtles, lots of different kinds of sea life not to forget the structures of the corals where just outstanding. The dive shop was just at the El Rancho which was just on the right of the unit. It was absolutely fantastic. I would definately recommend this unit and place. Thank you Patrick and Stella for this great opportunity. Suzie and France

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent the month of February in Stella and Patricks condo in Curacao. The condo was well equipped, the view off the deck was fantastic and the wifi is better than anything we have in the states. Rene, the caretaker, was wonderful to work with. We had a problem with a refrigerator and he was quick to solve the problem and had the fridge replaced with a new one. The snorkeling from the resort is fantastic. We visited several of the neighboring beaches but the best snorkeling by far was right there at the resort. The bed was great and the shower provided plenty of hot water. It was a great 30 days in Curacao and I would highly recommend staying at Stella and Patricks condo.

We spent 9 blissful nights in this lovely, secluded spot. Very comfortable, beautiful views and the last condo at the end of this nice complex. Winding stone steps down to the ocean and a gorgeous pool surrounded by flowers. We drank our morning coffee on the upper veranda, and dined on the porch downstairs every day. There was always a breeze and no mosquitos! Westpunt is far from the tourist crowds and has all the best beaches, bountiful snorkeling, and such nice people. The Marazul resort is very well maintained, and a gated community too. We dined out about four evenings and had some of the best food we've ever had in the Caribbean (St. Martha, Trio Penotti and Sol Food!). Great vacation! Thank you Stella and Patrick!

Less than excellent

  • 3 of 5

I would have given this an excellent review. However, in order to wash dishes you needed to boil water. There is no hot water in the kitchen sink. We asked the manager about this and he said 80% of the units did not have hot water in the Kitchen sink, but most had dishwashers. This one has neither. The only way to get the dishes degreased is to boil water. This is less than excellent. Stella, you need to put in a dishwasher or have the hot water

installed in the kitchen. I heard neither was difficult to do.

Owner's Response: We would like to announce that hot water has been installed in the kitchen sink . None of our prior guests felt the need for this and understood that for environmental reasons there was no dishwasher. (Only 3 units in the whole resort have dishwashers.) We are happy that you have otherwise enjoyed your stay at our place and found it very relaxing, as you stated in your other emails to us. We hope that you will visit us again in the future and enjoy the hot water in the kitchen tap :))

Feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

I choose this place based on some reviews and pictures, after some email exchanged with Stella and Patrick I was sure that I would stay there, all ways very patience to reply all my questions and give me a bunch of tips. When arrived I felt in home, everything very clear and organised. Next day we felt so relaxed with the view that we didn't anything beside stay in the sofa looking to the see. At morning you don't need the air conditioning in the living room, just open the windows and will have a nice breeze. The Local manager is extremely kind and always available to help you with some infos and tips. You can snorkeling just 30m from your door or relax at pool or even enjoy the iguanas around the area, probably you will meet Igor the iguana. :)

The location is also good with some restaurants around and the best beaches as well. Playa Grandi the smallest one is just a 1 or 2 km. Kenepa Grandi is not so far and it is amazing, near buy still have Kenepa Chic and Lagun, jeremy and Santa Cru. For us the best one was Cas Abou, a little bit far but good.

We had only one problem that actually was not so bad that was 3 days without internet at end of our stay and we couldn't keep family and friends updated until arrive the airport.

I really recommend it and I hope to come back in another season beside the rainy one. :)

We loved our stay.

  • 4 of 5

The place looked much better than the pictures. The location was beautiful. The place was comfortable and roomy. It was just like the pictures.

The property was expertly maintained. Any problems were fixed or taken care of quickly.

The manager was excellent. He had extensive knowledge of the area and acted as a tour guide.

I would recommend this property. The snorkeling was excellent on Curacao. In addition, the snorkeling was good just off this property. All one had to do was walk out the front door and go snorkeling.

I plan to go back.
