|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
If you'd like to step out of your every day life, if you're ready to live in a world away from what you know, if you're ready to slow down and surrender to a breathtaking setting with no nearby neighbors and with absolutely nothing between you and the turquoise water....then there's nowhere that can compare with Surrender Villa in Westpunt, Curacao.
Our family's Mediterranean-style, one-story privately owned villa was completed in 2011 and rests upon the seaside cliffs in Westpunt, a small village in the north of Curacao. Surrender is at the western most point of the island making it the perfect place to take in the magnificent Caribbean sunsets. The villa is situated in a gated community on a spacious, private 1.5 acres and was built for entertaining. It is the perfect place to come with family and friends. “Surrender” to the blue sea, the warm sunny days and the starry nights.
Once you arrive at the end of our courtyard, you'll travel down the long private driveway where you’ll glimpse beautiful flowering plants native to the island. The private, spacious, architecturally landscaped grounds feature a small grove of shade trees with sitting area, a beautiful stairway carved into the cliffs leading down to the ocean, a cliff diving platform, and rock walls along the property lines.
The villa’s interior might best be described as 5,000 square feet of casual elegance in a spectacular setting that takes full advantage of the tropical beauty that is the island of Curacao. A very large open living area encompasses the kitchen, dining room and living room. Thirty-foot, fully retractable doors open to the cliff side terrace and state-of-the-art infinity pool with nothing standing between you and the Caribbean.
Ocean view sleeping accommodations include an enormous master bedroom suite with a separate sitting room, a large private bathroom, a walk in closet, and private doors to the terrace. There are three other generously-sized bedrooms and a fourth smaller room that may be used for a nanny, cook, or extra guest. . There are three additional full bathrooms. The family room also features two queen-size pullout sofa beds.
The kitchen was designed with the chef in mind and boasts a Miele Oven, Gagganau Cooktop and Exhaust Fan, Microwave, Dishwasher, Nespresso Coffee Maker, and all small counter top appliances.

OUR FAVORITE NEARBY BEACHES
Grote Knip - located at the western side of the island, between the villages of Westpunt and Lagun. An easy ten minute walk from Surrender Villa. The beach gives way to a small lagoon and is surrounded by high rock cliffs. With a coral reef nearby, Grote Nip has wonderful snorkeling.
Playa Porto Mari is located on the private estate of Plantages on the west coast of Curacao. Its white coral sand beach, with clear and calm water is a true paradise for water lovers and the unique “double” reef is easily accessible from the shore providing a fascinating snorkel and dive site
Playa Cas Abou (aka Bon Bini Beach) was recently listed as one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations' in a Yahoo! travel article. Popular with both locals and tourists, on the weekends Cas Abou is one of the most crowded beaches. But the reason is simple: it’s beautiful!
Our family purchased the 2 adjacent lots perched on the cliffs of the Caribbean Ocean in Westpunt in 2008 and oversaw the construction of the 5,000 square foot villa which was completed in 2011. Almost everything within the villa had to be shipped from overseas. We find it's the perfect gathering spot to bring family and friends to spend quality time together in a setting that is nothing short of awesome. Although our family is originally from New Jersey. today we are spread out across the United States. Among our family members are businessmen, poets, artists, students, seekers, philosophers, teachers, aspiring actors and directors. The matriarch of our family turns 92 at the end of this year! We're all dog lovers and between us we have English Springer Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and one big handsome mixed breed among our ranks.
Janet J. purchased this villa in 2008
This property was purchased for one reason only....its spectacular location!

My extended family and I were on a mission to enjoy life with the mantra, "life should be memories and not dreams", and our expectations were definitively met with our recent July 2016 stay at Surrender Villa located in Westpunt-Sabana, Curacao. I have visited Curacao 4 times prior to this stay and certainly enjoyed my stay in the Willemstad area. Having traversed to the Western part of Curacao from Willemstad to explore the many beautiful cove-like beaches, I decided to look for a rental on that part of the island. Surrender Villa is as "west" as you can get with a flag and marker denoting the property by the Curacao government as being just that!
The property is located within a gated community and accessed via the Kura Hulanda Lodge and Beach Resort located near Playa Kalki. We were met by the local property manager who cordially welcomed us and amply introduced us to the Villa. We were a group of nine, and it comfortably accommodated all of us. We did not feel on top of each other with 4 bedrooms, three full baths, and a large family entertainment room that served as a sleeping area for my younger nieces with two pull out bed.
Surrender Villa is so tastefully designed with a fully modern kitchen and open floor plan. However the real 'star' of the Villa is the large Mediterranean outside pool area, where I think we spent more time outside than inside. The large infinity pool was paradise looking over the blue waters of the Caribbean, and being due West, sunsets were spectacular. Being from Philadelphia, I also enjoy nighttime outside forgetting how many stars are in the sky as we were certainly free from night light pollution.
The property owner Janet, was so very helpful during the rental process, from details on payments right down to her own personal recommendations of sights to visit on the island.
Besides being tastefully decorated, small essentials are there from beach chairs, towels, coolers, right down to even shopping bags! One day we did not even leave the property from morning coffee to dining al fresco utilizing the modern outdoor grill.
I can't say enough about Surrender Villa. As one of my brother-in-laws stated "this is living the dream"!
PS: I must not forget that there is a view of the Caribbean from almost every room!
Villa Surrender was the perfect place for our family vacation, offering privacy and luxury in a magnificent setting.
The villa itself is gorgeous - tastefully decorated in a way that made it feel both comfortable and elegant. Plenty of room with lots of different areas to relax and spend time together. A bit isolated, but anything needed was either available at the house or could be arranged by Hynrich, the property's wonderful caretaker.
The house is situated on the edge of a cliff, with gentle trade winds keeping the temperature comfortable and insects at bay. The patio is the perfect spot for sunset viewing.
The property and views were spectacular. Sitting on the patio or around the pool looking over the ocean was very relaxing. Cruise ships passing by in the distance and local fisherman closer in were our daily entertainment. The house was comfortable, clean, and very well maintained, inside and out. Everything we needed for our stay was available. We enjoyed sitting on the covered patio each day for meals. We made good use of the gas grill outside. The pool was very relaxing and very clean. Willemstad is an easy 30 minute ride if you want to see and do touristy things. Wonderful shops, restaurants, and vendors in the city which is a UNESCO heritage site. The floating farmer's market was fun to experience. There are several restaurants near the property that we enjoyed and would recommend. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.
We had an amazing girlfriend's getaway at Surrender Villa. The house is gorgeous, enormous, immaculate and equipped with everything we could want or need. We did venture off to sight see occasionally but it was hard to drag ourselves away from the terrace. The sunsets were unbeatable and the night the sky is sprinkled with billions of stars. A delightful breeze blows in from the ocean keeping us comfortable. This also means no bugs!!!! We'll definitely return. Can't recommend highly enough.
We loved our vacation at this home and would recommend it to anyone who wants a quiet, private get away. The home is beautifully furnished, has a large and spacious kitchen with all the amenities, and has a lovely veranda and outside porch surrounding the spacious infinity pool. There are gorgeous ocean views from practically every window in the home, and we walked down to the nearby hotel beach to snorkel most days. There is a large entertainment room with free wi-fi available. Just remember to get groceries in town, (about 30 min. away), as there is no close grocery store. This is certainly the place for rest, privacy, and rejuvination and we would love to stay here again sometime.
What an amazing place! For those looking for privacy as well as a sizeable home and up to date furnishings...look no further. My wife and I honeymooned here and from the first day we were floored with the sunset view. Rest assured, no matter what sunset cruise, dinner or event you might sign up for, if you are staying at this home there are no better views than what you'll find here.
The home was clean and ready to go upon our arrival. The owner even provided a personal assistant to help with having the fridge stocked and was there to greet us when we first arrived.
The pool was perfectly clean everyday and we pretty much ended everyday by dipping in the pool and then settling into the lounge chairs nearby on the patio to take in that sunset!
If it's hustle and bustle 24 hours a day that you're seeking, Villa Surrender is probably not the right vacation rental for you. The villa is located on the quiet end of the island. Here it is peaceful and low-key and the villa itself is quite secluded. But within an hour there is shopping, sightseeing, golf, gambling, museums and lots of activity. We'll have a guidebook waiting for you upon your arrival.
