About Peter Timp

The apartment 'Bayside 7' is from start of building this resort owned by two families in a family. The name 'MaBoJo' comes from the first two letters of the names of common children.

Last years the family's regularly stay in the apartment to get and check the quality. This because they want to test and guarantee their guest a pleasant stay.

To assure you a high service level, We outsourced the serive to our landlord Luisa Kroon-Rosheuvel which service you during your arrival, stay and departure. She takes care of the the smallest detail ensuring you a carefree holiday. Also she is avaiable to arrrange taxi and grocery service.

Peter Timp purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Peter Timp chose World

One of the families came every year since 2004 with great pleasure at Jan Thiel in Curacao.

When the project began on the point at the sea, they were 'sold' and were in a short time one of the first managed to buy an apartment at 'the' unique location at the Resort.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is in the most peaceful part of the resort. Also, the flora and fauna as beautifully designed and gives you a 'colored' view from the terrace. Hummingbirds, parrots, 'suikerdiefjes' regularly will accompany you on the terrace or by the pool.From the terrace you can see at your left Caracas Bay, in front you see by clear weather you can see Venezuela. At the right you look over Jan Thiel beach, Mambo Beach to Willemstad

Found my heaven

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from this fabulous first time trip to Curacao. Customer service seems to be Peter"s (owner) priority, as he was fantastic to deal with from start to finish. Also Luisa the on site manager was such a dear. She had a small load of groceries waiting in the fridge upon our arrival:)

The apartment itself, WOW! It's gorgeous with the huge deck overlooking the ocean, where we spent a lot of time watching ships pass by. It is so quiet at this end of the resort, perfect for relaxing. This is a very high end gated resort community, with all the amenities (beaches ,restaurants, grocery store, casino) only five minute walk away.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone! We sure did not want to leave:( Peter can we come back NOW??

A note to fellow Canadians: exchange your money at the airport because there is only one bank branch that will exchange CAN $s (MCB bank). Oddly enough RBC branches there wont exchange our money. Whaaaat....right??

Marvelous place for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We say thanks for the opportunity to book Majobo for our short stay, as we only were there for the Marco Borsato show. This place is great and we had a terrific time. Also thanks to Luisa, she is kind and pleasant. We shall surely recommend Mabojo to others. Although it would have also been nice if there was a microwave or toaster oven at the appartment. Overall thumbs up.

Marvelous place for a getaway

  • 4 of 5

We went to Curacao especially for the Marco Borsato show and stayed at Mabojo - Boca Gentil. We would highly recommend Mabojo. It is just the place to be. The service from beginning (booking) till the end was fantastic. Compliments to Peter. Last but not least, also to Luisa, she is very nice and pleasant. We really really enjoyed our short stay. It was like 'Heaven'. Although it would have also been nice to have a microwave or toaster oven at the appartment.

Winter Park, Florida

Wow. Even better than the pictures.

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous vacation we had at MaBoJo. The unit was sparkling clean with fresh flowers on the coffee table on our arrival. Peter was very responsive and attentive in helping to make our arrangements, and Luisa, his on-site assistant, was lovely and helpful as well. The photos of the condo don't even do it justice--the view is absolutely spectacular, and we could've easily spent the whole four days on the private lanai, basking in the ocean breeze. The snorkeling right onsite was amazing--we spent hours exploring the reefs and enjoying the exotic fish and corals. The resort itself is quite posh, and the restaurants we found overpriced, but the kitchen was reasonably well-equipped and so we enjoyed shopping at the Dutch grocery right onsite and cooking ourselves. One final note--it wasn't entirely clear to me from the description how convenient the beach was to the unit, but we found the location ideal--about a 5-7 minute walk down a very picturesque lane with the most lush tropical plants we've ever experienced--and we live in Florida! The condo was the perfect distance from the hustle-bustle of Jan Thiel--close enough if we wanted to partake in the 'party,' but far enough away to feel complete privacy and relaxation. HIGHLY recommend!

First Vacation in Curacao

  • 5 of 5

We are very pleased to have chosen Mabojo resort in Boca Gentil, the place where is located the apartment is very peaceful and the view is amazing.

The apartment itself is very nice and very well provided of table games and kitchen utilities . The parking spot is far from it, especially when have to buy some groceries; but that is compensated by a swim pool just in front of it; you can’t win all!!!

We totally recommend trying Mabojo, you will enjoy the resort, the apartment and the very nice treat of Luisa.
