Hi, We are Koen and Yvonne. Both working, Koen in the hospital as a radiologist and myself as a university lecturer. We have a newly combined family, between the two of us we have 8 kids, Koen 5, myself 3, ranging from 11 till 26. As I was born in Curacao the island, it's sunny climate,it's friendly people and easy lifestyle still make me feel right at home here and always draws me back. Both Koen and the kids learned to love it here as well. When we retire we want to spend a large part of our life here. In the mean time we have to be satisfied with an occasional holiday. In 2009 we were looking for a house in Curacao and fell in love with this one. Koen wanted a seaview, a pool and of course room for all our children, and this house has it all! We have decorated the house not for rental, but for private use and have all the amenities we want for ourselves, available for you. Koen loves to sail and most of our family enjoy scuba diving. Both sports are excellent in Curacao and very near to the house. The house is our families special place and we hope that you will find it special too.
yvonne koert & Koen Borsje purchased this villa in 2009
As we say in Curacao, home is where your navelcord is buried, and that's Curacao for me. In 2008 I introduced Koen to my Island and he fell in love with it too. I was over the moon when he expressed a wish to buy a house where we could spend holidays and hopefully enjoy our free time when we retire. The house he bought is on a hill, The porch has a seaview and a view over a nature reserve and is that view and the large outside living area is what made him want to buy this house. Of course the fact that it has a large pool does'nt hurt. This house is unique because of its dubble amenities. It gives our children the option to visit with us, and have their privacy if they want it.
We fell in love with the unique sea view and the spaciousness of the place. There is room for everyone and its never crowded, nor does it feel to big for just the two of us. Unique are the dubbel amenities, 2 completely self-containing living floors that are connected. Each with their own kitchen, living-room and terrace. But more than enough space to accommodate all guest upstairs in seating and dining and relaxing. The location is ideal for us, near the best beaches, diving schools and sailing, some of our favorite restaurants, supermarkets and the entertainment of Willemstad.The house is spacious and cool as it lies on top of a hill. The living space can be joined to the terrace by a large 6m sliding door to create the feeling that you are living outside. The fact that the kids enjoy themselves here immensely, they more or less live in the large pool when we stay at the house. I like to get up early, have a quiet swim and than drink my morning coffee or enjoy my breakfast with Koen on the porch watching the ships go by, or else enjoy the sunset together with the family or dine outside and BBQ by the pool. We basically live on the porch. The beds are hotel quality, so no back problems for us or our guests, a fully equipped kitchen and all the comfort of home..
