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, 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.

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 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: www.bdivingcuracao.com or on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/bdivingandwatersports

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.

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 Caribbean

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

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

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

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.
