About the property

Luxury colonial villa with all modern comforts

The Tropical Villa is a luxury and charming detached colonial villa for 10 persons (and a baby or child) with a large private pool with a very large walled tropical garden where you can enjoy complete privacy. You always rent the entire villa during your stay there will be no other guests in the villa or on the property so you will have absolute privacy. The villa is equipped with all the comforts you need and are used to at home and then some. The Tropical Villa offers all the ingredients for a luxury, sunny and relaxing holiday in an atmosphere of colonial times.

Privacy en luxury

The Tropical Villa is large detached villa that lies on a spacious walled plot of more than 2000 m2. In the large beautifully landscaped tropical garden with palm trees and tropical plants you can enjoy complete privacy in the garden as well as at your own private pool. The Tropical villa is situated on a hill to catch the maximum amount of wind so you can always enjoy a refreshing breeze while sunbathing at the pool and gazing at the Curaçao hill side. This very spacious, colonial villa offers all the contemporary luxury and privacy to make your Curaçao holiday an unforgettable one.

Large living area and well equipped kitchen

The Villa is based entirely on ground floor level and has a large living room with flat screen tv, stereo and iPod/iPhone speaker docking so you can enjoy your favourite music anywhere. In the Villa you will have Free WiFi at your disposal so you can keep in touch with the rest of the world during your holiday. Annex to the living room is a large open kitchen equipped with all modern luxury (big American fridge with ice machine, dishwasher, a large 6 pips stove, oven, microwave (oven), coffee maker, nespresso, kettle, toaster etc.). The kitchen is also well equipped with quality kitchen utensils (good chef knives, solid pans, crockery etc.).

5 bedroom and 3 bathrooms

The Villa has 5 bedrooms: four with large queen size Box-Spring beds and one bedroom with two single beds. On request an additional baby bed can be placed in one of the bedrooms. All bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning and a ceiling fan. There are 3 bathrooms all equipped with rain shower and toilet and hairdryer, and in addition there is a separate guest toilet. Kitchen towels, high quality bedding, towels and beach towels are sufficiently present.

The Tropical villa is constructed in a way that there is always a refreshing wind blowing through the House, making the temperature in the living- and bedrooms always pleasant (in addition all rooms are equipped with air conditioning and a fan). Due to the tropical climate in Curaçao, however, people mostly live outside. So you can have a family breakfast on the large front porch of the villa or lounge with a drink in the shadow on the very spacious back porch. Enjoy the sun on the sun loungers by the private pool (10 x 5 meters), kick the ball around or play beach ball and badminton on the large lawn or relax and read a book in the shade of the old tropical trees. Have a barbecue and food fest in the outdoor kitchen and gather at the large dining table to enjoy a home grilled meal or take the car (the Tropical villa has its own car, available for rent) and go out, it’s always happy hour somewhere on the island and there is a large choice of fine restaurants.

The Tropical villa in Julianadorp is a 10-minute drive from the airport and located right in the centre of the island, so you are never far away from the main attractions of Curaçao. Whether you’ll take the car and go shopping in historical Willemstad or visit a different tropical beach every day (Blue Bay Beach is only a 5 minute drive) to go diving, snorkelling or sunbathing. The Tropical Villa will always offer you a great place to come home to after a sunny day. Or just stay and relax at the villa all day, stock up at the local supermarket (there is a large supermarket within 5 minutes), get your favuorite snacks en drinks, put on some music and just stay at ‘home’ by the pool with all the luxury you’ll need within armsreach because that too is vacation. In short, a stay in the Tropical villa is a must for anyone who wants to combine luxury, tranquillity and privacy with all the vibrant things that Curaçao has to offer!

About Janine van Winden

We are a Dutch couple that fell in love with the beautiful island of Curacao many years ago. Curaçao has everything you want on a tropical island: sun, sea, beaches, wildlife, nature, adventure, kayaking, snorkling, diving, restaurants, bars, and night life. There is so much to do and usually so little time to do it in we always find ourselves making plans for next time.

When we had the chance to buy our dream house: an authentic colonial tropical villa, we decided to make our dream come true. So we now own a beautiful and large family home with a private pool and a tropical garden so we can enjoy summer al year round! And we hope that are guests will too!

Our Tropical Villa is managed by our trusted friends: Sjaak Janssen and Marcel Aarts, both speak English, Dutch and German. They will welcome our guests upon arrival and inform them of everything they need to know about the Tropical Villa and more. Sjaak and Marcel won the Zoover Award 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 for their hospitality and best apartments with their own Villa l’Orangerie Apartments which are just around the corner of the Tropical Villa, so guests can always address all their questions and requests directly at them.

Our villa is a lovely second home to enjoy a tropical holiday with family, children, grandchildren or friends in luxury. If you have any questions about our vila or our beautiful island please do not hesitate to contact us.

We are sure you will enjoy our home as much as we do and we hope to welcome you on the island soon!

Janine van Winden purchased this villa in 2012

Why Janine van Winden chose Julianadorp

We have been coming to Curaçao for over 20 years now and we have learned that on Curaçao it is essential to stay in a centrally located place so you don't have to spend any holiday time in traffic jams or have to drive for hours to get to the best natural beaches. That was the reason we ourselves always stayed in Julianadorp, a leafy and quiet colonial villa district right in the centre of Curaçao, close to Willemstad and the best beaches. Over the years we have fallen in love with the broad green boulevards of Julianadorp that breathe the atmosphere of bygone colonial times. So when we had the chance to buy an authentic colonial tropical villa on a big lot, we took it. So now we enjoy our beautiful holiday villa several times a year with the entire family of 3 generations. Grandparents, parents and children all enjoy a holiday the way they like to spend it with their own space and privacy. There are many great restaurants and (beach)bars nearby where we like to go but we especially enjoy being together and cooking and eating and drinking to together in our outdoor kitchen under the palapa (typical Caribbean enclosure of dried palm leaves that protects against the sun and the rain) while the children are playing in the pool or in the garden. There is a large supermarket within a 3 minute drive that has all the ingredients for a great tropical Barbecue feast: fantastic South and North American meat, local chicken, fish and vegetables. After a long and relaxing sunny day at the pool or at the beach, we grab a local beer or a glass of wine and prepare a lovely meal in our outdoor kitchen and enjoy the sunset and the long warm tropical nights outside in the garden. And we hope that are guests will too!

What makes this villa unique

Our authentic tropical villa was built in the 1940s to accommodate the Executive Board of the Shell. Our villa is the largest type and is situated on a hill on the most beautiful boulevard in Julianadorp, the Bosweg. Our colonial villa with its wide eaves is specially designed to make sure it is always nice and cool inside.

We not only fell in love with the colonial character of our villa but we also immediately loved it because it is perfectly situated on a hill to catch the maximum amount of wind, if you have been in the tropics, you know how refreshing a breeze can be!

We have renovated the villa in style, kept all its original elements, but added all the modern luxury you can wish for. Our villa lies on a spacious walled plot of more than 2200 m2. In the large beautifully landscaped tropical garden with giant tropical trees, palm trees and tropical plants you can enjoy complete privacy in the garden as well as at the pool. The villa is specially designed by the architects for life in a tropical climate: the outdoor areas are therefore at least as big as the indoor spaces. The villa has a large veranda on the front where you can have breakfast in the shade and also a large veranda for lounging in the back. And if you live outside than why not also cook and eat outside? So we built a palapa (typical Caribbean enclosure of dried palm leaves that protects against the sun and the rain) in the garden with an outdoor kitchen and a large dining table. Next to water, gas and electricity we have also made sure that there is wifi (of course there is also wifi in the villa), so the palapa is the epicentre of our villa where everyone gathers during the day and in the evening.

We hope that our guests will enjoy our villa, our garden, the pool and the beautiful natural beaches and real tropical Curaçao life as much as we do!

een topvakantie!

  • 5 of 5

We hebben 12 fantastische dagen beleefd in Curaçao op een toplocatie!

De centrale ligging van de woning, de authenticiteit van de woning, de faciliteiten van de woning, de indeling van de woning, de tuin, de buitenkeuken, het zwembad, .... Allemaal redenen om ons verblijf in Curaçao compleet te maken!

De locatie biedt complete rust en geeft de mogelijkheid om de toeristische drukte van de stranden even achter je te laten.

Door zijn centrale ligging kom je binnen het half uur overal op het eiland.

De woning is zeer netjes en voorzien van alle nodige faciliteiten.

De kers op de taart zijn ten slotte de gastheren die garant staan voor een zorgeloos verblijf en assistentie indien nodig.

Thuis voelen op Caribische bestemming

  • 5 of 5

Schone en net onderhouden villa uit ca. 1975 en voorzien van alle moderne middelen. De woning was schoon en voorzien van alles wat gewenst kon worden.

De tuin was vanwege de droogte iets minder groen maar de palmen en struiken stonden er perfect onderhouden bij.

Het zwembad en tuin werden ook tijdens ons verblijf onderhouden zonder dat wij daar last van hadden. Witgoed en handdoeken welke ruimschoots aanwezig waren werden iedere week gewisseld. Daarbij werd de woning dan ook schoongemaakt. E.e.a. gebeurde op een discrete en storingsvrije wijze.

De woninginrichting voorziet voorts in alle benodigdheden voor een verblijf met (kleine) kinderen. Strand en snorkel spullen zijn ook beperkt aanwezig.

Toplokaties zoals Blue Bay, Pirate Bay, Golfcourt en supermarkt zijn kort bij aanwezig. Punda, Otrabanda en Centra van Willemstad zijn op ca. 7 KM snel te bereiken.

Kortom een prima lokatie om met een gezin of familie van ca. 8-10 personen te verblijven.

Geweldige vakantie villa

  • 5 of 5

De villa voldeed geheel aan onze verwachting. Ruim schoon en van alles, maar dan ook echt alles voorzien. Wij, 6 volwassen en 4 kinderen, hebben dan ook erg genoten van de villa en het grote ruime zwembad wat 2 maal per week werd schoongemaakt.De beheerders Sjaak en Marcel wonen om de hoek van de villa en zijn altijd bereikbaar. Wij hebben genoten van deze vakantie en gaan zeker nogmaals terug

Traumurlaub zur Delfintherapie

  • 5 of 5

Die Tropenvilla ist ein Traum. Wir sind zu 9 nach Curacao gereist um mit unserer Tochter an der Delfin Therapie teilzunehmen. Das Haus ist einfach nur wunderschön, es ist alles da was man braucht. Sjaak der vor Ort einen in Empfang nimmt steht einem mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Die komplette Abwicklung ging reibungslos, die Rückerstattung der Kaution war 2 Tage später auch schon da. Also alles in allem eine erfolgreiche Reise in ein Traumland in einem Traumhaus. :-) Sehr zu empfehlen mit Kindern da im Haus wirklich alles vorhanden ist was man braucht......

Liebe Janine

ganz herzlichen Dank für diesen unvergesslichen Urlaub in eurem Haus.....

Herzliche Grüße

Melanie und Familie

Wiedereinmal wunderschöne Urlaubszeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren jetzt das zweite Mal in der Tropenvilla und beide Male waren wir äußerst zufrieden. Der Kontakt zum Vermieter und zu den Verwaltern vor Ort waren unkompliziert und sehr nett. Der Pool, die Grillstation und die gesamte Ausstattung des Hauses lassen einen vom ersten Tag an den Urlaub genießen! Jeder Zeit würden wir persönlich die Villa wieder selber buchen, aber auch an Freunde und Bekannte weiterempfehlen. Mit dem zugehörigen Auto sind die wunderschönen Strände, der nahe liegende Supermarkt und Willemstad schnell und gut erreichbar.

Fazit: Alles passte und wir waren sehr zufrieden.

The Tropical Villa is located in the leafy and peaceful Julianadorp, a colonial villa estate located in Curacao. Julianadorp is a spacious area that is known for its beautiful tropical cool and authentic colonial villas, built in the 1950s by the Shell as executive homes. The 'Dutch Tropics 'is a good nickname for Julianadorp: the large colonial villas on spacious plots to the broad green alleys breathe the atmosphere of a bygone era but are of course completely renovated with all modern comforts and luxuries.

The Tropical Villa in julianadorp is the ideal base to see more than just the familiar places of Curaçao such as Jan Thiel and Mambo Beach. The experienced Curaçao visitor knows that the island has so much more to offer such as the quiet and untouched (North) West with its many beautiful bays and natural beaches. Cas Abou Beach (in 2011 on Yahoo Travel’s list of ‘10 Best Beach Destinations’), Grote Knip Beach, Daaibooi Bay en Playa Porto Mari are white natural beaches located in secluded bays with crystal clear water: true tropical paradises. Or drive to the famous West Point and turn to the rugged coast on the other side of the island and enjoy the spectacular view and see the rugged sea beech on the rocks. But there is more than coast, discover the characteristic countryside of Curaçao with its old country houses and enjoy a cold beer and a pastechi along the way at a local Snèck. On Curaçao a rental car is essential to discover the most beautiful beaches, the coolest bars and the best restaurants. Whether you’ll have a drink in the city at the colonial Governors bar or at the Schoonerbar at the Avila Beach Hotel or grab a bite to eat at a one of the Country Houses or at Fishalicious it is all equally close by but only by car. The motoring and traffic is very relaxed as is everything on Curaçao. The signage on the entire island very clear and recognizable with old-fashioned Dutch motoring-signs.Julianadorp is right in the centre of Curaçao.

The Tropcial villa is a stone's throw from the beach and golf course at Blue Bay and just 10 minutes from the airport and the historic center of buzzling Willemstad. The historic centre of Willemstad, the capital of Curaçao, is on the World Heritage list of UNESCO. The beautiful skyline of Canal houses with Dutch architecture in Caribbean colours have the nicknamed Willemstad ‘the Amsterdam of the Western Hemisphere’. The beautiful St. Anna Bay separates the old centre of Willemstad in two parts: Punda and Otrobanda. Both districts are connected by the famous Queen Emma bridge, popularly known as The swinging old lady or pontoon bridge. Take a seat on one of the terraces of the cafés of Otrobanda (literally ‘the other side’) and enjoy the picturesque view on the façades of Punda. Or go shopping in the picturesque Punda, a shopping area where not only local products are sold but also all major world brands are represented. Don’t miss the floating market, where merchants from Venezuela offer their products right from their fisherman boats.
