Villa Barbulete is set on the edge of a cliff, 60 meters above sea level and 135 meters from the coastline, 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 50 private villas where living is spacious, private and secure.

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 ranks 4th of the 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 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.

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.

Els & Ronald Nowee purchased this villa in 2013

Why Els & Ronald Nowee chose Curaçao

We have been looking for the most beautiful spot on earth for 25 years.

The right view over the Caribbean Sea. Not too close, not too far, the right height. Villa Barbulete has it all, 60 meters above sea level, 135 meters from the coastline.

You see the matras swim, a school of fish, hunted by barracudas , jumping over the water. But you also look miles away, you see the cruise ships passing by and the cargo ships. In clear weather you can see the Venezuela mountain range.

Adjacent to the famous salt pans of Curacao. From the pooldeck you can watch the flamingos searching for food.

In short: the most beautiful place on earth!

What makes this villa unique

The unique view on the ocean and the salt pans,

the space ( 7500 square feet) , the huge covered porch,the proximity of one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Cas Abou Beach.

Top restaurants at close range, the security of a guarded, closed resort, with peace, space and privacy.

No beach parties, no disturbance of sleep, beautiful nature with, amongst others, hummingbirds and iguanas as regular visitors

Een bijzonder mooi huis.!

  • 4 of 5

De Villa Barbulete is een geweldig mooi huis met een ongelooflijk uitzicht op de Oceaan, die heel veel nuances blauw laat zien.!!

Op ieder moment van de dag geniet je hiervan, of je op de veranda staat , in de Pool zwemt of wanneer bij de rieten parasol op adem komt.!

De keukenuitrusting was meer dan compleet .!

De koelkast met die ijsblokjes / -schilfers is een zalig ding.!!

Eten en drinken op die ruime veranda is een feest. Wat een idee zou zijn om een stopcontact aan te leggen o.a. om de broodrooster op de tafel te kunnen gebruiken.!

Wat ons hogelijk verbaasd heeft ......dat er geen buitendouche is, want afgespoeld naar binnen lopen is een stuk prettiger.!!

Verder niets dan lof voor de Villa.

Beautiful home with the most amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 stayed at Villa Barbulete at the end of August and had one of the most amazing vacations ever. This was our first experience with renting a house ,as we normally enjoy cruising every year, but I must admit, I am hooked!! The owners and the manager Andreas were very responsive and answered all of my questions. The information about the house was very detailed and just as the owner stated, EVERYTHING that we needed was at the house already!. We thoroughly enjoyed the house, the pool and the magnificent views! I even recaptured my love for photography as there were so many things to take pictures of...the flamingos, the sunsets in the evening from the pool, the early morning view of birds, crabs you name it! I would definitely stay again if ever back in Curacao! Thanks again!

This house exceeded expectations! It was our second trip to Curaçao, having previously stayed in Jan Thiel, but we found ourselves driving to this area all the time. The house and location were amazing, quiet yet so close to Cas Abou Beach and several other favorites beaches of ours. The pictures do not do the color of the sea justice, so beautiful. The owners were a pleasure to work with and the house is so well equipped with all you need.

Els and Ronald, you really do have a slice of heaven and thank you for making your house available. Loved it!

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
