Thank you

Our accomodation at Jan Sofat was perfect. The place was spotless, the bed comfortable and everything we needed was there. Having the pool at the back with such a beautiful seating area was lovely , but then we had our own private balcony at the front which was an added bonus.

We found a whole range of beaches and the snorkelling was excellent. We especially enjoyed the wreck where you could see it all by just snorkelling and our boat trip on the Mermaid to Keine Curacao. But the national park was equally as amazing, with wonderful views and a fantastic array of wild and plant life to see, as were the igunanas on Santa Marta beach. The car was essential.(Thank you Jennifer)

We enjoyed all our meals out ranging from The Golden Seahorse with its beach cafe atmosphere but wonderful fish and chips/ konch and chips; to the Sculpture Garden with it's fine dining; the all you can eat buffet at Jaipure; as well as ribs at both the Ribs factory and the Riff. But the barbeque was also so tasty with Argentine Steaks and local fish easily available.

Thank you for your hospitality on New Years Eve. The barbeque was delicious and I doubt I'll ever see fireworks of the same ilk again, unless we return to Curacao.

Our journey home was eventful as we missed our connection in Miami: the immigration queue was so long it took over 2hours ! When we return to your part of the world we will aviod the US if at all possible for that reason alone and I would advice other travellers to do the same. We ended up staying in a hotel in Miami on the Friday and flying up to Chicago on Saturday to connect with an overnight flight to Heathrow getting in at 6:25 on Sunday morning. So work on Monday was bit grim.

What a wonderful trip we have had! We spent three weeks here and enjoyed every day. we especialty enjoyed getting to know Thoralf + Friederike, as well as the other guests from Germany. The community at 29 Jan Sofat has been 100% welcoming.

We can both say with confidence that the vacation has been a highlight in our lives. Thanks so much, and we look forward to visiting again.

Sehr schönes Apartment in guter Lage mit schönem Pool

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im April '16 zu Gast, unser Aparment hat uns sehr gut gefallen. Der Pool direkt hinter dem Haus war auch sehr schön angelegt, die Apartments haben alle einen Zugang zum Pool. Apartments sind in quasi allen größen zu bekommen. Es war für alles gesorgt, Handtücher für Strand und Badezimmer waren vorhanden, bei der Küchenausstattung haben wir nichts vermisst, das Badezimmer war relativ neu und sauber. Die Lage in Jan Sofat ist auch sehr gut, 5min mit Auto zum Jan Thiel Beach und ca. 15 nach Punda/Otrobanda (Aldstadt von Willemstat). Wir wurden sehr nett begrüßt und betreut.Alles in alles nichts zu meckern. Zu Empfehlen!

Geschmackvolle Appartments in toller Anlage

  • 5 of 5

Mein schnuckeliges Appartement „Gecko“ ist äußert gemütlich und hat eine SUPERAUSSTATTUNG und ist sehr geschmackvoll und praktisch eingerichtet. Der Pool und die Gestaltung der Anlage sind sensationell. Die Bilder sind nicht mit Photoshop bearbeitet!

Der Service stimmt. Von der Erstausstattung bis zur Grundreinigung (im Preis enthalten) und Verfügbarkeit der Vermieter – alles lief sehr gut.

In wenigen Minuten erreicht man Einkaufsmöglichkeiten einheimischer Anbieter (empfehlenswert!) und auch die Supermärkte europäischen Zuschnitts. Willemstad ist bei Tag und Nacht ein lohnendes Ziel. Schöne Strände, Natur erleben, Wassersport – alles ist von diesem Standort gut erreichbar. Und nach den Entdeckungen und Erlebnissen den Tag in Ruhe am Pool ausklingen lassen. Herrlich!

aber was kann es auch schon Schöneres geben!

Alex und Danny aus Dortmund vom 1.3. - 10.3.10

Gecko und Kolibri

Hallo, Ihr beiden!

Aus totalem Zufall heraus sind wir im Netz auf eure Apartments gestoßen - zu dem Zeitpunkt wussten wir nicht einmal, dass wir Urlaub auf Curacao machen wollten. Doch jetzt wissen wir, was für ein Glücksgriff es war.

Zugegeben - in unseren jungen Jahren haben wir noch nicht sooo viel von der Welt gesehen - aber was kann es auch schon Schöneres geben, als einen Urlaub in euren tollen Apartments auf dieser traumhaften Insel?! :-)

Wir werden zu 100 % noch einmal kommen, um die typisch deutsche "Hektik" weiter abzubauen. ;-)

Vielen Dank für Alles und weiterhin alles Gute!

Alex & Danny

einfach nur entspannend!

  • 5 of 5

Gecko vom 22.-29.3.2010

Hallo, Ihr Beiden,

nach zwei anstrengenden Wochen Windsurfen auf Bonaire waren die 7 Tage bei Euch einfach nur entspannend:

Morgens, abends und zwischendurch zur Abkühlung in den Pool.

Viele, schöne Ecken der Insel konnten wir aufgrund Eurer Tips entdecken.

Den Bootstrip nach Klein Curacao, das Schnuppertauchen bei Scubado und unseren letzten Abend im Boatshouse werden wir so schnell nicht vergessen.

Vielen Dank für Eure Gastfreundschaft und Hilfsbereitschaft,

liebe Grüße,

Lars + Steffi

Nearest Beach

Car: recommended

Curacao with its enjoyable summery climate the whole year through belongs to the Leewards Antilles and lies outside the hurricane belt. Curacao's diving areas belong to the best worldwide (more than 35 beaches, approx. 100 diving places). Fly with Blue Skies helicopter above Curacao or take Captain Godlifes watertaxi. The sea aquarium and dolphin academy offer unforgettable moments. Discover the Christoffel National Park, the Den Dunki or Shete Boka National Park! Enjoy the easy and South American air at the floating market. Curacao is tax haven - see for yourself during a shopping tour through Punda, Willlemstad's old center with buildings of the 17th century. Or make a visit at the Ostrich farm, the caves of Hato or at Klein Curacao in a private boat. You can also borrow a kayak from us - we carry you directly to the Spanish Water or the sea. You want to get married? We give you the best professional wedding service address of Curacao!

Other Activities: Kite-Surfing, Jetski, Bananaboat, swimming with dolphines
