About Bjorn Evers

I love to travel with my wife and two children. We just love the Caribbean and the unique island of Curacao with the 30+ beautiful beaches. Curacao is known as the Caribbeans best kept secret, try it and find out for yourself!

Bjorn Evers purchased this villa in 2009

Why Bjorn Evers chose Curacao

We moved to Curacao for work and couldn't find any upscale houses near the ocean so we decided to build our dream home in the Caribbean.

What makes this villa unique

The view is just breathtaking - you can look at the ocean and all the large cruise ships passing by. In the bay you see all the fishing boats leave early in the morning and return hopefully with fresh fish for you to pick up and put on the Grill at night. You see all the action from sailing boats, jet skis, windsurfers and speed boats. All this from your private pool or hot tub.

The villa is located on higher ground so it offers 100% privacy and security. You can relax in the amazing infinity pool or soak in the hot tub or why not workout in the fitness room. At night you can enjoy the air conditioned bedrooms for a good night sleep.

The villa is situated perfectly a few minutes away from the best beaches and restaurants on Curacao. You have plenty of grocery stores a few minutes away and fresh fish from the marina 100m across the bay. Villa Serenity is located right in the middle of where you want to spend your Curacao vacation.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a lovely property with wonderful amenities and a home-like feel. The master bedroom is cavernous with a great bathroom. The other bedrooms are much smaller, but fully adequate. The kitchen is nicely appointed and there is nothing you will need that is lacking. The living room space is nice - frankly, we spent very little time in there - the one comment I would make about the living room is that there could be a bit more furniture in it - more conversation spaces - but I certainly would not let that detract in any way from the desirability of the property. Waking up each morning to the gorgeous views of the Spanish waters was breathtaking.



We are very avid snorkelers and have snorkeled at many Caribbean islands - so this was a prime focus of our beach explorations. Our favorite beaches were Blue Bay - something for everyone - beautiful, lots of different kinds of seating, good general swimming as well as excellent snorkeling if you go outside the cove to the left, and just an exquisite setting overall; Jan Thiel/Zanzibar - similar comments all around - loved the beach bars, the infinity pool, the closeness to the villa, again, very good snorkeling around the cove to the left; Playa Kalki - up North - gorgeous, excellent snorkeling - be prepared for almost an hour ride to get there; Playa Kenepa (Big Knip) - nice, good snorkeling, but not much shade and almost no chaises provided. If you are interested in snorkeling with turtles and are up north, leave Playa Kenepa around 4:00 and go two beaches over to Playa Pescado, where the fishermen come in, and we saw 5 turtles there. Apparently, they are there almost every day between 4 - 6, as the fishermen will throw scraps in the water. That was cool. Also, my 25 year old daughter did jump from the cliff at Westpunt, again, one more beach over from Pescado, and easily visible from there if you look to the left. There is a restautant/bar up there and a long green wall - that is where people jump from - probably a 30 - 40 foot jump and quite an adrenaline rush. But be very careful that you enter the water as straight as you can - even as a former gymnast/diver and very in control of her body, she was sore the next day.



Loved Punda/Otrabanda - must see at night. great lunch at Iguana Cafe on the Punda waterfront

Restaurants - faves - local Pop's Place close to the villa, nearby Maxim's, Zest at Zanaibar/Jan Thiel, Perla Del Mar at the Arches, Boathouse ok

Paradise - Family Friendly Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! We are two families with two children each (ages 4 & 1), and this villa was absolutely perfect for us! From the first e-mail contact with Bjorn, to the last friendly good-bye wave of Jennifer the housekeeper we were treated with the utmost respect. The house itself is very family friendly. With two 1 year olds running around it was such a pleasure to actually relax and not have to worry about them on the stairs or by the pool since there were safety gates installed. There were house toys, pool toys, and beach toys for all of the kids which was much appreciated. The air conditioning in all of the bedrooms was wonderful for sleeping. The house was immaculate and Jennifer the housekeeper was such a blessing. The view was outstanding, the pool was refreshing (and a wonderful shallow area for the kids to play in) and the side yard was great for the kids to run around!

We visited Jan Thiel Beach, Cas Abou Beach, Blue Bay Beach, and Sea Aquarium Beach. We enjoyed all of them, but we loved coming "home" in the afternoons so that the babies could take their naps, the 4 year olds could play, and the adults could relax! It was nice to have internet access so that we could sit under our palapa every night and plan out the next day's adventures. The villa is not far from many attractions, so that made it easy for us to drive around.

We were very impressed with the people, the food, the beaches, and most of all the wonderful villa!

A Welcome Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a six night stay here in January 2017. We have never been to Curacao and after much hunting I settled on Vila Serenity. We found the location to be ideal for our needs-not too far from the airport or town, but away from the hotel and cruise ship congestion. We liked the Jan Thiel area immensely. Within a 5-10 minutes drive were numerous restaurants, a delightful small grocery, the beach, a dive shop and several shore diving locations. (We rented tanks from Scuba Do Dive and dove their reef at the beach, Tugboat, and Directors Bay - our favorite- which we did in both directions.) The villa itself is lovely, open and airy. The kitchen is well equipped with plenty of cooking pans, dishes, etc. My favorite aspect was the view. It is panoramic over the harbor where you can enjoy it reading, dining, swimming, etc. The sunsets are perfectly situated from the terrace. While we have older children, the house seems well suited to younger ones as there are toys, a gate around the pool, a small table and chairs, crib and toddler bed. Björn and his house manager Luisa were easy to work with so checking in and out went smoothly. The house was neat and clean, and we felt welcome from the moment we arrived. I highly recommend Villa Serenity.

Owner's Response: Christine, Thanks a million for taking the time to write such a lovely review! I'm happy that you found Directors Bay (aka Love Beach), it's a hidden gem close to the villa:). Jan Thiel Beach is also one of our favorite beach spots. Perfect beach when you just want to relax and have all the amenities you ever need. In fact, it's listed as the #1 beach on the Villa Serenity website - http://www.curacaovacationvillarental.com/curacaos-best-beaches/ Welcome back! Warm Wishes, Bjorn and Therese

Perfect for living, entertaining, and vacationing

  • 5 of 5

My family with three young boys had the great fortune of making this beautiful vacation house our home from 2014 to 2016. It was PERFECT in every way. Further, during the two years we entertained many guests from throughout the world and absolutely everyone LOVED the house. It is impossible to enumerate all the benefits of renting this house, so here are a few of those that would be important to a future renter.

Location: Brakkeput Abou is an open neighborhood (not gated) a great location. It is a 15-30 (depending of traffic) from downtown Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage site. It is a four minute drive to the Jan Thiel Beach, and ten minute drive to the Mambo Beach area. If you like to mountain bike, you can ride directly to some great single track around the Jan Thiel salt ponds. The home is situated to offer amazing views of Spanish Waters and Caracas Bay and all the activity there. Sunrises and sunsets are amazing from both dining areas.

House: The home is ideal for up to four couples. With the exception of the downstairs guest suite and gym, it is one floor, open living. It is well appointed with comfortable and stylish furnishings as well as a fully equipped kitchen for those who choose to entertain while staying at the home. The sound and TV systems are designed with the audiophile in mind. The infinity pool, hot tub and adjoining palapa are well designed and perfectly situated for hours of relaxation while children play in the pool. Further, they surrounded by a fence and gate, offering a degree of safety for young children.

Property Owner: Bjorn was a supremely responsible and responsive owner, and he was ably assisted by Jenifer the house cleaner. Since we were extended stay customers, we did not need a property manager. Both Bjorn and Jenifer were proactive in making our extended stay as easy and pleasurable as possible.

We would absolutely recommend this property equally to limited stay vacationers or extended stay renters alike. Living in this home was a highlight of our two year adventure of exploring the history, culture, landscape, and waters of Curacao.

Owner's Response: Thanks a million for taking the time to write such a detailed review Paul. This review is so to the point with such nice descriptions that I might even use parts of it for the Villa Serenity description! I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank Paul and his family for taking such great care of our home. You were truly a dream tenant for these past two years. THANKS! For vacation renters, our property manager is included in your stay and can arrange for daily tours, restaurant recommendations and reservations, or arrange for a top rated private chef and staff if you rather eat at home, beach reservations, adventures etc. We also include daily maid service for your stay. So it's like staying at a 5 star hotel, however it offers much more privace and a substantial reduced rate.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was the perfect getaway our family needed. The pictures can't describe how amazing the view is. The location is perfect with lots of great restaurants and beaches a few minutes away. When we returned to the villa we enjoyed the cool infinity pool and the hot tub in the evening.

The property manager arranged for a private chef to cook dinner for us at home a few nights. 5 course dinner:). We also appreciated the daily maid service, it was really nice to return to a clean house and the beds made etc.

Highly recommended, we will return!

Wonderful seaside villa!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family reunion. The villa had all the necessary amenities (and then some!) and looked just like the photos. Great location - easy drive to the beach, exploring the rest of the island, and catching a boat to Klein Curacao. We all loved it!
