About the property


Check out our video and the read on!

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.

Some of the additional features you'll find include:

--Samsung HDTV’s With International Programming, Access To Movies And Sporting Events

--DVD Player

--Bose Sound Dock

--Speed Queen Washer And Dryer

--Air Conditioning Units In Each Room

--48″ DCS Outdoor Grill

--Advance Technology Alarm System,

--24-Hour Gated Security

--Wireless Internet Access


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!

About Janet J.

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

An Easter Week to Remember

  • 5 of 5

Wow! Can I give 10 stars....

There are not enough "wows" to describe the luxurious and beautiful setting of Surrender Villa. The assistance of Janet and Hynrich leading up to our stay was invaluable. Our family was more than comfortable within the gorgeous villa, yet spent every possible minute outside. Being immersed in such beauty, whether admiring the spectacular views during the day, the occasional treat of dolphins swimming by, the special treat of a whale in the distance, or lying under the brightest stars at night. The temperatures were always perfect with the warm Caribbean sun shining as a very comfortable breeze always blew. The pool was a perfect size to cool off midday (of course the kids were in it from sunrise to sunset). We did manage to experience much of the Island from Dolphin Adventures, to turtle watching at Playa Grande, to the many beaches.

The restaurants were fabulous. Some of our favorites were Trio Penotti which is very close to the Villa, Baoase located in Willemstad, and The Wine Cellar which is also in Willemstad and was my personal favorite.

Thank you, Jaffe Family for sharing your perfect home! We intend to return Very Soon!

We want them to know that they are most welcome and that we are available both before, during and after their visit to address any questions or to help them in any way.

If you are considering going to Curacao, and you should, this is the place to stay at! We have during the years rented villas in Europe and on different islands in the Caribbean and this is an experience going ahead of everything else. The location, the architecture, hospitality - everything is world class.

It's what we strive for....providing our guests with top-notch service in a relaxed, yet elegant, environment. And even though we cannot possibly take credit for it, the geographical location of the villa is truly unbeatable isn't it? You and your family are always welcome in our home.

Breathtaking and felt like Home.

  • 5 of 5

We’ve lived on the beautiful island of Curaçao for a few years and wanted our last weeks to feel like a true vacation. Staying at the Surrender meant spectacular sunsets, a refreshing breeze and seclusion that Westpunt provides. But it also meant to us that we could cook, grill, relax in the pool and provide a comfortable atmosphere for our children. We wanted for nothing. The house manager was helpful and knowledgeable beyond measure. He’s truly a gem on the island. We love Curaçao and have extensive knowledge of resorts and life here and we will never stay anywhere else! The owners are fabulously communicative.

Thank you for opening your home to us.

Owner's Response: High praise coming from a family that's been lucky enough to call Curacao home for a number of years. We're so glad you chose to end your island experience at Surrender and delighted that it exceeded your expectations. Thanks so much for the lovely review. You are always welcome to stay in our family's home.

Amazing Oceanfront Property w/ pool & views!!!

  • 5 of 5

What a very special property! I can't give enough positive reviews on this unique property, the owner, the caretaker, and the island itself. It was everything we hoped our vacation would be. Besides being beautiful, the house is well appointed and highly functional. We felt very welcome from the moment the caretaker greeted us till the day we departed. We will definitely be back in the future!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the five star review! We strive to provide our guests with conscientious, top-notch service and are grateful for the mention. We worked hard to make Surrender a special space, comfortable, casual and still elegant. As for Westpunt? The Caribbean The sunsets? Curacao? Wish we could take credit for them but they shine on their own without any help from us!

Wonderful location and great accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation at Villa Surrender. The house has everything you could possibly need , nicely decorated with high end appliances and many indoor and outdoor seating options.The pool was perfect for the young children in our group, the view outstanding , the cliff jumping and snorkeling right at the property was fantastic. We bought fish from the local fishermen and snorkeled with sea turtles! We didn’t want to leave and definitely want to go back!

Where do I start with Villa Surrender. Not only is the setting some of the most picturesque on the island, the house and amenities are equally up to par. You can tell the Jaffe's has spent many hours and dollars on making this a very special house. From the pool, to the kitchen and all the bedrooms and landscaping, no detail was overlooked. My wife and a few of our friends celebrated a renewal of vows ceremony at the Villa and it was one of our best vacations yet. Hynrich (who oversees the property) was one of the best additions to the trip- getting us fresh fish ever day and guiding us to best spots on the island. We will certainly be back and I was bummed to wake up today in the US and not be able to cliff dive to start my morning. Thanks again Villa Surrender!

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.
