This is the place to stay in Curacao!

  • 5 of 5

This property and its owners made our stay in Curacao. We visited Curacao for the first time, as a Honeymoon trip. The property was great in every respect. Its one bedroom, bathroom, fully stocked kitchen, living room, outdoor area, and private pool were all we needed for our stay. The pool made the trip. Curacao is warm, but the pool was there to cool us down, and provide a beautiful romantic ambiance that was just perfect day & night. The owners picked us up at the airport, took us on a tour of Willemstad, and were so very helpful during our entire stay. We will most definitely return.

Perfect way to avoid the resort

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the one bedroom villa in January 2016 for a week. The owners were extremely helpful in orienting us to Curacao and took a lot of time showing us how to get to different beaches and restaurants. The helpfulness of this cannot be understated given the lack of road signs! The villa is located within a quiet neighborhood, but is in easy reach of everywhere you'll want to go.

The villa is absolutely perfect for two people. It is exactly as pictured: lovely, totally private pool with surrounding patio, ample kitchen and bedroom with roomy closet and casual living room. The villa was clean, well organized and has everything you need to cook meals for yourself. Since restaurant prices are not cheap, we made good use of the kitchen and gas grill. In our VRBO experience, this was one of the best stocked kitchens we've had.

We spent the majority of our time on the patio. I cannot imagine a better place to relax while drinking coffee, eating a meal or having drinks under the stars. And, as if that is not enough, the family dogs come by for visits!

If you want to feel like your at home, only better, you can't go wrong!

Super villa en super vakantie

  • 5 of 5

Wij hadden een super vakantie. We hadden de Villa voor 8 dagen (7 Nachten) gehuurd gedurend de laatste week van Mei.

De Villa was zelfs nog mooier als verwacht, de villa ziet er zo uit als op de foto´s en het zwembad is heerlijk! We hebben vele fijne avonden in de tuin verbracht. De Villa is gelegen op een privé grondstuk. De eigenaren wonen ernaast, en zijn bereikbaar voor vragen, maar zorgen ervoor dat je niet gestoord wordt en van je vakantie heerlijk kunt genieten. Wij werden ontvangen door de dochter van de eigenaren (Inki), een super gastvrouw die ons ook nog veel tips heeft gegeven! Wij hadden ook direct een auto gehuurd, een "4-wheel-drive" die op het eiland een goede keuze is. Je kunt natuurlijk ook op het vliegveld of in Willemstad een auto huren, maar hier krijg je vooral kleine huur auto´s zoals een kia picanto, deze zijn bij de vele niet geasvalteerde wegen niet handig.

De Villa ligt dichtbij verschillende stranden en ook zijn er veel supermarkten en restaurantjes in de buurt. Willemstad is ook niet ver weg en hierdoor ligt de Villa perfect, maar een auto is wel noodzakelijk om snel en makkelijk van A naar B te komen. Wij zitten er ook over te denken binnenkort nog een keer terug te komen, aangezien het ons zo goed is bevallen!

Nogmaals bedankt voor alles Inki!

Heel veel groetjes, Fleur & Marc

Comfortable and nice

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Colna Dos. Peter and Wilma were friendly, funny and helpful. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable. The outdoor space was amazing and there were virtually no bugs. The pool was perfect.

This is a very good location for excursions to downtown or Caracas bay. To get to the diving and beaches at west point the drive is around an hour. The traffic can be frustrating and the roads confusing. Our best dives were from a boat off the east end. The shore diving was very good, some sites were much better than others.

We did a lot of cooking at home and found an outstanding gourmet market in Jan Thiel (bring a Dutch phrase book). They had great pre made scalloped potatoes, sausages, and really nice deserts.

We loved the comfort of coming back to a really nice,simple place.

Karibikfeeling pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Februar 2017 für 2 Wochen auf Curacao und haben jeden einzelnen Tag in dieser herrlichen Unterkunft bei den äusserst freundlichen Gastgebern Wilma und Peter Brouwers sehr genossen. Alles ist genauso wie beschrieben, es hat an nichts gefehlt . Der Maßstab für die nächste Karibikreise ist jetzt natürlich sehr hoch. 😊 Wir würden auf alle Fälle wieder kommen.

Wunderbarer Ausgangsort, um Curacao kennenzulernen...

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa befindet sich in einem gehobenen Wohnviertel im Randgebiet von Willemstad. Die Lage hat sich als idealer Ausgangsort für die Erkundung der Insel erwiesen.

Die Wohnräume sind großzügig geschnitten, geschmackvoll eingerichtet und zweckmäßig ausgestattet. Direkt vom Wohnzimmer gelangt man auf den komplett eingewachsenen, weitläufigen, beschatteten Terrassenbereich mit eigenem Pool. Zahlreiche Sitzmöbel, ein großer Esstisch, Liegen, Stühle, eine Aussendusche, ein großer Gasgrill, Sonnenschirm und verschiedene Außenleuchten sind vorhanden. Kostenloses WLAN ist ebenfalls verfügbar. Die offene Küche ist geräumig und sehr gut ausgestattet. Ein Highlight ist der riesige Kühlschrank mit Icemaker und Zapfstelle für gekühltes Wasser. Im Schlafzimmer und im Wohnzimmer sind separate Klimaanlagen vorhanden. Für Familien kann eine zweite, direkt angrenzende Wohnung zusätzlich angemietet werden. Strom wird am Ende mit der Kaution verrechnet. Vorsorglich sollte man sich darüber im Klaren sein, dass Strom auf Curacao relativ teuer ist und man die Klimaanlagen deshalb sehr bewusst einsetzen sollte.

Peter und Wilma, die ausgesprochen liebenswerten und sympathischen Vermieter, wohnen direkt nebenan und stehen jederzeit mit Rat und Tat bereit. Sie haben uns viele wertvolle Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt mit auf den Weg gegeben und den Transfer vom und zum Flughafen selbstverständlich übernommen. Nebenbei ist Peter ein begnadeter Klavier- und Saxofon - Künstler, der auch gerne mal eine kleine Kostprobe seines Könnens preisgibt.

Der optional angebotene Toyota Geländewagen ist zwar nicht mehr ganz neu, aber unserer Meinung nach ein optimales Fahrzeug für Curacao´s Strassen und die teilweise etwas beschwerlichen Schotterpisten zu den abgelegeneren Stränden. Das Auto parkt direkt vor der Tür, das Grundstück ist durch ein elektrisches Tor gesichert.

Wir würden jederzeit gerne wieder dort wohnen und grenzenlose Gastfreundschaft der Beiden geniessen.

Absolute Bestnote ohne Einschränkungen !

Curacao is the largest island of the Netherlands Antilles in the Caribbean. Since 1634, the island is belonging to the Netherlands and since 2010 it is an independent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The island lies off the coast of Venezuela and has over the years very nice and safe climatological conditions. The average temperature is about 28.5 degrees during the day and at night it is only about 5 to 6 degrees cooler. In the months of July, August and September it can be a couple degrees warmer and from November to February is also time some rain, mostly at night and it never gets really cool. The sea water temperature is about 26 degrees.

 Besides beautiful bays in the south where besides swimming and diving/snorkling is possible, you can also enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The island has much more to offer. So you can go deep- sea fishing, sailing, golf on 3 beautiful golf courses. Furthermore there are casinos, good restaurants and well-equipped shops in the capital, Willemstad, where there are also museums.

The capital city, where you can enjoy the many old houses in many colors, the famous '''' Pontjesbridge'', the floating vegetable market, its many restaurants, bars and cafes often right on the sea-side where you can see the incoming and outgoing cruise ships, will surely please you.

Furthermore, one can visit by car, the smaller villages, bays or old plantations on the east and west coast. The north coast is certainly worth a visit, but is pretty rough and not always easy to reach. The highest mountain of Curacao , the ''Christoffel'' in the western part of the island, is 375 meters high. In some lakes and bays, there are flamingos and other special birds. You can also visit a bird park, an Austrich farm and an AloehVera plantation.

Meanwhile, many Dutch pensioners live on the island so that in addition to the mother tongue (Papiamentu) and Dutch, Spanish, English and German and even French is spoken.

Curacao has currently about 135 000 inhabitants and is actually quite modern without having lost their old traditions and architecture

The national coin is the Antillean Guilder (ANG or NAFl), which course is linked to the U.S. dollar.

Besides ANG therefore you can pay in dollars very often. Everywhere in and around the city you will find ATM/Bankautomaten where you can withdraw by credit card or debit card ANG. Also you can pay in a lot of shops, hotels and restaurants with a creditcard

Curacao is now very easy to reach by air. Daily flights with KLM and Arkefly (TUI) directt from Amsterdam and recently AIR Berlin flies from Dusseldorf once or twice a week to Curacao.

 

To visit Curacao you need no extra vaccinations against tropical diseases (such as malaria). These do not occur. One should, however, protect against mosquitoes which are active, especially at sunset.
