The apartment located 30 feet from the sea within a small gated resort is situated in Westpunt, a tiny village at the west side of Curacao. From the apartment you have an uninterrupted view on the deep blue and crystal clear ocean where you may spot dolphins jumping out of the sea. For swimming, snorkeling or diving: just walk down the stairs from the resort to the sea or otherwise go to one of the many other nearby beaches. Great mountain biking and hiking on the nearby wild north side of the island and at the Boca Tabla Nature Preserve. The Mt. Christoffel National Park and the Savonet museum are at a 15 minutes car drive away.
Westpunt is the ideal spot for an exiting or quiet getaway from daily life.

About Rita and Winfried Merkies

Rita and Winfried Merkies purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Rita and Winfried Merkies chose Sabana Westpunt
Growing up as a child we always rented vacation homes during our school holidays on this part of the island, now we had the chance to buy one ourselves.
What makes this Apartment unique
The fact that we can walk from our unit to the stairs to the ocean almost directly in front of our unit and go for a swim, snorkle or dive.

Great location for the self dependent traveler.
If you're looking for a place away from the noise, congestion, and hassle of downtown Willemstad you can't do better than this. Buy all your food at the Centrum market and head out to Westpunt. The Marazul resort is safe, clean and ideally located for those who want to dive, snorkel or just hang out at the many nearby beaches. Winfred's place has all you need to prepare your own meals. The wi-fi was reliable and fast. The upper level has a lovely deck and being in the front row of the facility gives you an unobstructed view of the ocean. Having the pool close by was another benefit of staying here. We also enjoyed the easy access to the aquamarine waters of the ocean. Easy steps down to a ladder for entry and exit. Or you can dive off the platform next to the ladder (much more enjoyable). I highly recommend the Marazul resort.

Hello Malcom & Christine,
Thank you for your review, we are so glad you liked our place and had a great time and liked the upstairs deck renovation we did recently. You are welcome any time for another look at the turtles at Westpunt or maybe a whale swimming by. Greetings, Winfried & Rita.
Beautiful location, very clean and well maintained apartment, couldn't be better. Highly recommended. We didn't go diving or snorkeling while here, so we can't speak to the underwater experience - but Westpunt is well placed to reach the west-end sites within minutes.
Under water is even nicer than above!
Really enjoyed it! Location was clean, well looked after and exceeded our expectations!
overall experience was great, very friendly and responsive manager
Everything was great with this resort. Only problem was the back screen door had tears along the bottom edge that worsened due to the strong breeze coming through the unit and we had to make sure we were closed up by dusk to avoid mosquitos in the living areas. I'm sure the manager Renee will have it promptly remedied as he was very attentive and helpful. only other thing would be to make sure nothing is left in vehicles, i mean nothing, we had several bottles if water stolen from our vehicle one of the nights in the gated parking lot, yes i said water, couldn't believe it as the island has very drinkable h2o.
Great spot for a relaxing vacation...
From Canada, we spent two weeks at Marazul Dive Resort. The apartment was great, view of the ocean and ease of access to swimming and snorkelling was very good. There are also many excellent snorkelling beaches within a ten minute drive. Many of the other people in the complex were owners and we enjoyed getting to know them.
For the owners, we would recommend just a couple of things; sharpener for the kitchen knives; little bit bigger frying pan and possibly a few containers for storing food in the fridge.
For travellers, we would recommend bringing a mosquito net for covering your bed; not a huge deal but it definitely made sleeping more comfortable.
Overall, the place was great, the instructions for getting here and using the facility were excellent and we would highly recommend staying here.
The suggestions are much appreciated and we will see how we may add further comfort to the apartment. The mosquito net will be added as we have that ready to be installed... Thanks for your review and we are so happy you had a good time !
Beautiful Oceanside Resort
My wife and I rented this townhouse for one week from April 2 to the 9th and had a very enjoyable stay. Winfried was very good to work with booking our vacation and Rene was very helpful when called upon. We found Westpunt to be very convenient to the beaches, only a short drive (a car is a must) to our favourite Karakter beach bar and restaurant and beautiful Cas Abou beach. We hope to return to Curacao and do recommend Marazul Dive Resort for the beautiful ocean view and a very quiet place to call home in the evening. If you plan on sitting out in the evenings be sure to bring insect repellent, the mosquitoes can be a little nasty after sunset. We ate out at Rancho El Sobrino twice, the food was good and the restaurant staff were very friendly. Very convenient too right beside Marazul Resort. Make sure to spend some time in Willemstad, a nice little city to visit and enjoy a meal or a drink near the Queen Emma bridge. Other than the mosquitoes the only other minor inconvenience were the tiny ants, just don't leave anything on the counter top or they'll get into whatever you leave out.
Thanks Winfried and Rene for a wonderful vacation,we hope to be back soon.
The apartment is located in the western part of the island; the area is rural and quiet with many possibilities for diving, snorkeling, swimming, (mountain) biking and walking. There is a good dive school in Westpunt and a tank depot in our resort should you want to dive with them.
The national park Christoffel is a must see and can be reached within a 20 minute drive from Westpunt for sight seeing, bird watching or climbing mount Christoffel for a beautiful view over the island. Landhuis (Mansion) Savonet is inside the park and is a museum that is worthwhile a visit. The north coast where the waves are breaking on the rocks can be reached within 10 minutes.
Dining can be enjoyed at Misjhe, El Sobrino, Sol foods, Landhuis Sta Martha or Jaanchi. At Westpunt on Sundays you can enjoy a local lunch at the Fishermen's bay of Westpunt or at Shete Boca which can be reached within 10 minutes by car.
