Wonderful vacation in a wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Curacao! The house was beautiful and with plenty of room for three families with kids (6 adults and 6 kids ages 6 to 13). The stunning views made spending time outside so enjoyable, and we truly appreciated the hospitality of Anne-Marie. She was waiting for us when we arrived despite our very delayed flight and gave us helpful tips for exploring the island. Snacks and cold drinks in the fridge were also a very nice touch. A cleaning lady came by twice over the week we were there. We found getting around to be pretty easy and there were enough stores and restaurants nearby (a rental car is an absolute must). Anne-Marie pointed out the charm of the various beaches in Curacao and we ended up going to a different one every day of our stay. This made for a truly unique experience. We'd love to come back to Curacao and stay at Villa Papilon!

P.S. The house is in a very nice and secure neighborhood.

Incredible views in a wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Papilon was absolutely perfect for our group of 11 young adults looking to enjoy a week in the sun. The views from the rear porch overlooking the bay were absolutely breathtaking. The home is situated just a couple minute drive from the beautiful Jan Thiel area with several great restaurants, bars, grocery store, and a nice beach area. Anne Marie was very responsive to all questions about the island prior to renting the property, and was very helpful when we had questions during our stay. The pool was great for relaxing during the afternoon, and we enjoyed several group meals at the large outdoor dining area. In the area I would highly recommend the Boathouse restaurant, and Zanzibar Beach Bar.

We rented a few cars so we could explore the island, and check out the incredible beaches. Playa Lagun and Playa Aboa were a couple of our favorites as well as taking the catamaran trip to the island of Klein Curacao. The home is also a short drive from the downtown Willemstad area with some great shopping.

I would highly recommend this property, and Anne Marie is very knowledgeable about the island; ensuring you are ready to relax and enjoy your time in paradise.

Fun days in the sun

  • 5 of 5

If you have had a negative experience with rental homes on your vacation, worry no more. Anne Marie was the most gracious and helpful person with regards to giving information about the shopping, beaches, and anything else you would want to know about this wonderful island. Be rest assured that you can trust in this listing. If you have any issues or problems, Anne Marie is sure to take care of anything. The only problem we experienced was a power outage in one of the rooms. However, the problem was fixed immediately once we had notified her. Truly, she is one of the best people to make your vacation a comfortable one.

With regards to the home, the home is very large and spacious with enough room for a large family and many more. The beds were comfortable and we always had a good nights rest. The best thing about the home was the location and the pool. The location of the home is in a very safe and luxurious section of the island. We felt very relaxed and at home in this area. Furthermore, the home is close to many of the major grocery stores on the island and you're only a couple minutes drive away from the main beach of Jan Theil. After a day on the beach, it was nice to come home and relax outside on the patio while we looked at the best view of the entire island and watched our teenagers splash around in the pool. Those memories of the amazing view and our children enjoying the pool will be forever engraved into my mind. All in all, the home was well worth it and we enjoyed this island and the location of the home very much. Definitely a luxurious listing.

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

Villa Papilon is an outstanding property in a great location. It is in Jan Thiel which gives you access to a wonderful beach as well as restaurants. The owner Anne-Marie was very kind and gracious. She made sure to provide us a map and information regarding attractions and a grocery store. The villa has a full kitchen and outside grill which allows you to prepare your own meals. The view from the pool is breathtaking and it really makes you want to spend all of your time at the villa lounging and enjoying the sun. We were so impressed with our experience and the villa that we are planning to return this year. Five stars.

Beautiful Large Property with Stunning Service

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends stayed at Villa Papilon for over two week as my husband and I were married on the island. The property is marvelous and Anne-Marie surpassed our expectations with taking care of us during our stay. This is a very spacious house with an open floor plan as we had 8 adults on property but we all felt like we had our own space. Jan Thiel is a very upscale, safe area on the island conveniently located to Jan Thiel beach, restaurants and shopping. We rented two cars while on the island and traveled everywhere on the island which I would suggest to all.

I would highly recommend this property and trust that Anne-Marie will take care of all of your needs.

Perfect location! Beautiful villa!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect stay, absolute luxury and privacy. I liked the Jan Thiel area the best, it was closely situated near restaurants and alongside beautiful Spanish Water. The spanish hacienda style villa was magnificent! My children loved that they could all have their own bedroom.

They had surflessons and scuba-diving excursions. loved it.

Come back next year!
