About the property

Spacious luxury Ocean view Villa with Private Beach / Lagoon 600 yards walking.

Villa Barbulete is set on the edge of a cliff in a gated resort overlooking the azure Caribbean sea in the western part of the Island, which is known as the green area , quiet, luxurious, peaceful, beautiful, and totally safe.

Cas About resort, adjacent to Cas Abou beach, is one of the most beautiful locations of the island, or perhaps the most beautiful. A small, quiet and guarded and gated resort with approx 45 private villas where living is spacious, private and secure.

Curacao has been voted the #1 Destination in the Caribbean by Readers Choices and #1 & #2 every year for scuba diving and snorkeling in the Caribbean. Visibility is well over 100 feet.

Our villa offers you all the opportunities for sunbathing, snorkeling and scuba diving's.

Cas Abou Resort has 2 lovely little private beaches, only accessible to residents , with fantastic diving and snorkeling facilities. One of them right in front of the villa, the other one at a 550 meters ( 600 yards) walk from the villa.

Cas Abou Beach (aka Bon Bini Beach) fully meets the vision that you have of a tropical beach :

white sand, palapa´s ( covered with palm leaf umbrellas) , palm trees and other tropical vegetation.

According to National Geographic Cas Abao Beach belongs to the 21 best beaches of the world: " Ringed by reefs, Curaçao hides a Caribbean underwater wonderland, and this beach is one of the few sandy ones on the arid island, with a bar and a shop to rent snorkel gear. Slip straight into the shallow crystalline bay alive with sea fans and coral, tropical fish, sponges, sea turtles, and more".

"A pleasantly warm sea with brilliant azure hues especially wonderful light in sunny weather, with world class diving and snorkeling facilities ".

Cas Abou Beach is adjacent to Cas Abou resort.

Cas Abou Beach has a dive shop and licensed instruction. See: or on Facebook:

The villa is fully equipped for maximum 9 guests. It has 4 spacious bedrooms, 3 with kingsize beds and 1 with a kingsize bed and a single bed, 2,5 bathrooms, a huge living room, a fully equipped kitchen and an enormous covered porch with 180 degrees magnificent panorama view facing the Caribbean Sea ! From the private pool you have the same view.

Total living space spans over 7,500 sqft. Plot covers over 17,200 sqft.

At the right side of the villa a unique view on the salt pans of Cas About where graceful flamingos congregate in the inland bay, finding their food in the salt water.

Next to the Dutch kitchen there are at Curaçao also a large number of international cuisines to find such as Argentine , Brazilian, Thai, Chinese , Japanese, Italian and more. The traditional local cuisine is also increasingly popular with tourists. Here you can for example enjoy delicious stews such as Karni stobá ( with beef ) , Kabritu stobá ( with goat ) , iguana (soup or satellite) or ´n Curaçao´s bunny.

In Curacao you are almost guaranteed a perfect weather. Curacao is outside the hurricane belt, Tsunami proof, has never in recorded history suffered an earthquake and there are no poisonous animals on the island.

Booking a vacation in Curacao means sunny skies, warm calm water, and refreshing trade winds.

Curacao has the safest drinking water in the world. The drinking water is desalinated and better than the most expensive bottled water. You can drink the water straight from the tap and in any restaurant.

About Els & Ronald Nowee

A working life comes to an end. Where is it better to stay than at our beloved Curacao, where we have 25 years spent our holidays. Not to live there permanently, for that our children and grandchildren are too important. We visit our home four times a year for a period of four to five weeks. If we are not in this paradise it is at your disposal.

Gorgeous home & location!

  • 5 of 5

We love Cas Abao and the beautiful snorkeling amongst the elk horn coral. To top it off, this house was amazing. Perfectly appointed as we had a need for nothing! The pool was a nice size and the entire property is very private. The views are amazing! The 3 downstairs bedrooms each have their own entry and are nice sized with good beds and adequate storage for clothing and personal items. The bathrooms are also a good size, clean and also had room for personal items. Plenty of outside seating so that you could enjoy sun or shade at anytime of day. Great sized kitchen with plenty of pots, pans, dishes, silverware and even Tupperware. This was our 3rd visit to Curacao, the 2nd time in Cas Abao, but by far the best accommodations. Loved it!

The view is stunning, one of the beat we have seen

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for letting stay at your Villa.

The Villa is a fantastic place to spend a LONG time, the view is stunning, we loved the sound of the waves, the pool is nice and the whole area is nice and well kept.

Minor issues; the oven is placet rather high up for most people, it's a high tech oven with build in micro - cool.

The Grand children would have loved the dolphin at the pool to blow water.

And what bothered the children most was the mosquitos - bring or buy an effective repellent it's needed morning and evenings. Close your room at all times to keep them out.

We do not want to go home, but have to.

The private beach with free axcess, Cas Abou Beach, is fantastic and Brigittes B-Diving is the place to go if you wish professionell help with all diving issues.

We can recoment the Villa and do not miss the beach.

Best Regards Lars, Harriett with children and grandchildren

Great villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa was a great place for our family of four to spend the week in Curaçao. The view is amazing and the property is as described and maintained very well. The owners were super responsive and very accommodating. The property manager on the island was also responsive and able to respond quickly to questions and needs. Our trip consisted of diving, visiting local beaches, snorkeling, and exploring many parts of the island. This villa offered us both the location to do these things and also the privacy to just relax and not feel like tourists. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this villa.

Idyllic stay at a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the Villa. Waking up to the beautiful ocean view every morning was like a dream. We also enjoyed watching the flamingos. The house was well equipped and rooms were very comfortable. The air conditioning in the bedrooms was quick to cool when needed and the rooms seemed to stay cool after it was shut off. It is very convenient that there are European and American outlets in the rooms. The bedrooms only have exterior access and you are given one set of keys so every time you leave/come back someone has to go around locking/unlocking all the doors which is a little inconvenient...but it does afford a lot of privacy if you have multiple couples. Also, while we did visit Cas Abou Beach the guard seemed put out about letting guests go through with no entry fee. He requested we bring a copy of our rental agreement so be prepared for that...perhaps too many people claim they are guests of someone in the community. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay.

Private Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home for the beauty, and peace and quiet, afforded by this part of the island; we were NOT disappointed. The view took my breath away, each and every morning, as we had coffee/breakfast on the patio. Crystal clear waters, with only the occasional fisherman and perhaps the random snorkeler/diver, to distract from beauty of the ocean. Sunsets from the pool, literal paradise. Watching the flamingos troll for food in the Saltans, also amazing. The house is large and the rooms are set-up in ways that afford privacy and space, which on a long vacation, is SO nice. Cas Abao beach is delightful and access is free. Willemstead and Jan Theil are about a 30-40 minute drive, BUT the house is very close to some of the islands' most beautiful beaches including the knipps, playa porto marie, and playa lagun and Christoffel Mountain. I absolutely recommend this property. It is noteworthy that amenities, in my experience, that are typically included through VRBO/AIRBNB type rentals such as shampoo, conditioner, body soap, etc. are not provided. Dish soap, papertowels, tolietpaper etc. are provided to get you started. The kitchen is large and easy to use, with plenty of towels, dishes, and pots and pans provided; however, spices, herbs, olive oil, etc, need to be purchased. I would definitely stay here again!
