Excellent villa for families with children

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 3 weeks in Villa Carpe Diem with our parents and our children. Although we were with 8 people in total there was still plenty of space in the house. The garden with play set and swimming pool is just perfect for children. The neighborhood is quite, but close to the Caribbean Sea and several restaurants. We would definitely recommend this accommodation to friends and family. Thank you very much for the excellent service!

Relaxing, luxurious getaway

  • 5 of 5

Rogier (the owner) was extremely professional and quick in responding to our questions and requests prior to our arrival. And the property managers in Curacao were also very professional and a pleasure to deal with.

And finally...the house and property were beautiful and clean. We loved the location - we felt safe and were able to really relax on our vacation. Great for young families and groups of friends. We would definitely go back and would absolutely recommend this to our friends and family!!

Nice but not luxurious

  • 3 of 5

The house is located in a safe and beautiful part of the island. Great grocery store very close by. Meat very fresh and priced good. Sjeif and Roiger were very helpful with any concerns that came up and I did have quite a few. The house is large and private.

Mosquitos were a serious issue especially in the master bedroom which we kept closed and everynight before bed we were killing at least 10! Still to this day we have no idea where they were coming from!

If you are looking for luxury this is not the house to rent. They list it as such but it is not. The bedding is stained. Towels were hard and stained. Basic toiletres like hand soap were not provided. The house was not very clean upon our arrival. I was given the excuse that the house is open and I should expect dust. It was beyond dust, a plate of moldy food was left in the only working oven. No cable. Only children's videos provided. Broken pool floating devices. The big beautiful gas range you see in pics, the only part that works is the burners. The oven does not.

Pool was nice. The pool lady came twice a week. It was great to have a private pool the two beaches nearly are not bad but can usually be full of people. One is free and the other you have to pay per person to get in!

A car is a must. We were given a hard time going thru customs due to the fact that we were not given a physical address so I had to show them the emailed directions provided. They were not very happy but it satisfied them.

I am not saying not to rent this home, but do not expect Luxury.

Owner's Response: There are some things we want to clarify for our guests. Many of our previous guests have stated our house to be luxurious, as much as an open tropical villa can be. Anyone looking for softer towels and luxury toiletries would make a better choice by booking the Hilton hotel. Our price-quality relationship is excellent. On top of that, we ask relatively low tariff for a property of that caliber. The large oven is indeed out of use; we have a new combination oven plus microwave instead, please use that when cooking in the oven. The plate with moldy food left in the oven was our fault as we did not double check our cleaning lady, and we offered you our apologies and a generous refund in return. It seems unfair to us that you didn’t mention that in your review. The physical address of the villa is always mentioned on all our invoices and on our website. Please note that beforehand to avoid the custom fuss. Concerning mosquito’s: use mosquito nets for your own comfort, they are available in every bedroom.

What a beautiful specious villa in colonial style! We stayed there for two weeks to relax and to come our senses, we really needed the quiet holiday with tropical temperatures and warm sea.

So much tranquility, exactly what we needed. I feel like I charged for a whole year ahead!)))

The rates were great and transparent, professional team, friendly service. Thank you!

Zeker voor herhaling vatbaar!

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben ruim 2 weken in Villa Carpe Diem verbleven. Wat een prachtige villa!

Bij aankomst werden we netjes opgevangen door de beheerder, die ons wegwijs heeft gemaakt in de woning. De villa werd schoon opgeleverd.

Direct na aankomst hebben we boodschappen gedaan bij de AH supermarkt, die op 5 minuten afstand is gelegen. Een auto is wel noodzakelijk op Curacao in verband met de hoge temperatuur.

De villa is rustig gelegen in de wijk Jan Thiel. Het zwembad is fantastisch voor kleine kinderen. De overdekte terassen zijn uitstekend om te relaxen.

Wij kunnen (en zullen) deze villa van harte aanbevelen aan vrienden en familie.

Het is wel even wennen aan het tempo waarmee op Curacao dingen worden gedaan. Wees bijvoorbeeld niet verbaast als je een kwartier moet wachten bij een restaurant om af te rekenen.

Een schone, mooie en ruime villa met een prachtige tuin en zwembad die meer dan de moeite waard was om in te verblijven! Aan niets heeft het ons ontbroken, kortom top!

The villa is situated on the edge of one of the most beautiful residential areas situated on the island: Jan Thiel. The Caracas Bay Beach and the popular Zanzibar are within walking distance of the villa. In addition, one of the biggest supermarkets on the island just a few miles from the villa. At 5 minutes walking distance are the salt pans of Jan Thiel, a beautiful area where you can walk peacefully and enjoy the flamingos. There are also several dive schools and dive spots nearby. In the vicinity are many restaurants that all have something to offer: Il Forno (Italian), Zanzibar (beach restaurant with good pizzas and salads), The Small World (the Spanish Water, 2 minutes walk) and much more . Finally, you are just a drive of less than 15 minutes from a beautiful piece of UNESCO World Heritage Site if you are curious about the history: the historic center of Willemstad, Punda.
