Extremely comfortable, homey villa with gorgeous view of Spanish bay
This is a lovely, spacious villa in a private, safe neighborhood. Our favorite thing was having morning coffee on the outside deck as we looked at the hills and bay, and enjoyed watching the iguanas and green parrots. We also enjoyed the occasional morning or evening swim in the very good size swimming pool. The kitchen was set up well, although would have been nice if there was an oven. Bathrooms were nice and bedrooms' size were good. The only thing I would change would be the beds, as they were not the most comfortable and small (single beds for grown adults does not permit for adequate sleeping). One other thing is that the caretakers were not responsive to helping us figure out some minor issues, like getting television to work, but figured it out.
This villa is perfectly situated . It's less than an hour from airport and say 30 minutes from williamstadt. Curacao is a large island so car rental a must if you want to explore and hit the variet of beautiful beaches on the island (car rental prices are reasonable but be prepared for up to $1000 security hold on your credit card until check out☹️). We went to 9 different beaches, all beautiful but lots more we would have liked to seen. A five minute drive down to Jan thiel is lovely but busy beach that's worth checking out. Also in Jan thiel is a fairly well stocked grocery store that even has fresh squeezed orange juice! While groceries are pricier than in the states, it's cheaper than eating out (somewhat expensive even at casual dining places). I will say the Italian restaurant just down the road was very good and not expensive. Also in Jan thiel is a nice gym, very modern, if your looking to exercise. Lastly taking one trip into williamstadt to take in the history, little shopping (anything you want) and its unique feel a must! Also check the curaçao liqueur company for a history lesson, to see how it's made and a nice gift shop is a lot of fun!
I absolutely love curaçao and this villa. Of all the islands I've visited in the Carribean, it is now my favorite. If you love beaches and beautiful Carribean water than there's non better. I also like the fact that not heavily visited by other Americans, the people are very friendly and there's so much to see and do. We had 10 beautiful days here, oh yeah weather great and warm and bringing xtra sunscreen a good idea,and I did not want to leave! I would retire here if I could. As I write
