Overview

About the property

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!. . . . . . . . .

We loved staying at Patrick and Stella place

Although we rented a car and travelled around a lot. It was nice to have this relaxing place as our home base we would definitely plan another vacation there.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Pat & Stella's unit was exactly as described with the addition of an updated kitchen. All communication with them was smooth and questions were answered quickly. Everything was clean and tidy and comfortable. Location on the island was very nice, closer to best beaches and easy access to Westpunt restaurants. The western facing location was excellent for nightly sunset viewing. The total property was also very nice and the property manager would walk by every morning and check if anything was needed. We would highly recommend this location for your stay on Curacao.

Beautiful ocean view duplex

  • 5 of 5

Great place! We showed up and had someone in the unit we booked. The resort manager was very helpful and gave us the unit next door which turned out to be the very end one. The rest of our stay we were the only people in it so it made for a very private stay.

The suite itself was clean and had all the amenities.

The snorkelling in front of the resort was the best in westpunt!

We both felt it was great value for what we got. We enjoyed watching the sunsets from our patio every night! Would defiantly come back and stay again!

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
