About yvonne koert & Koen Borsje

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

Why yvonne koert & Koen Borsje chose Willemstad

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Gooooood holiday

Recensie verstuurd: 2 mei 2011 Datum van verblijf: april 2011

We come back home after 2 weeks in the Villa Bista di Awa. This home is just perfect. Better than the pictures! The swimming pool is really big. The vieuw is sublime !

We were 9 peoples with my little girl of 2 years and it's very secure for her!

Curacao is a pretty island, especially the north-west, more sauvage and natural...

Huge place great for families

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time, the house is extremely cool due to the fact that it sits on top of a little hill and the breeze takes care of bugs and heat, the space is adequate for large groups due to the fact that it's two houses in one with two separate kitchens.

The host is very attentive and helpful and she waited for us to arrive at the house, we defenetly recommend this place

Comfortable, well-furnished house suited for a large family

  • 4 of 5

The house is bright, well taken care of (clean, with a helpful caretaker and a well-stocked kitchen) and has good communal space, including a lovely porch with a large dining table. When the doors are open, it's very breezy and comfortable. There are no screens on any of the doors, however, so at night you need to use the AC, which we would rather not have done. We also had one member of our party who had difficulty navigating stairs: this is not a good property for such people. The pool is very good. Aside from the stairs and AC, the house was perfect for our family reunion.

The location is mixed. It's very safe - in the middle of a gated community - but the cost of that is that one needs to drive everywhere. No beaches to walk to, and there's no good place to go running from the house. But things are a short drive away: there's good windsurfing within 10 minutes, for instance, and when the traffic is OK, it takes just 15 or 20 minutes to get to the center of town.

Owner's Response: Hi Sam. Thank you for your kind words. You are abolutely right about the stairs and screens. I am sorry you missed the information about the stairs; we mention on vrbo that the house is not suitable for wheelchairs due to stairs. I hope this did not inconvenience your friend too much. The lack of screens were a choice for safetysake. No easy entrance at night for uninvited guests. But I will list it on our todo list as there might be more people who would like that. Curacao is a location where you need a car to go anywhere except when you choose to stay at jan thiel where you have all facilities in walking distance, so yes you need a car for our property. The upside of living here is the peace and quiet of the neighbourhood and large private pool. Having said that I am happy you chose to stay with us and that our house facilitated your family reunion to your liking. Thanks again! Yvonne and Koen

Extremely comfortable, homey villa with gorgeous view of Spanish bay

  • 5 of 5

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

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words! Sorry you missed the oven, the microwave is actually a combined microwave, thus an oven too! I will talk to the caretaker about the TV, there should be an instruction set available near the TV. I will make sure it is replaced. About the beds; We bought hotel quality beds, however only one kingsize bed and the rest are indeed all single beds. We figured that would best suit all the different types of guest we have. I do see your point! However, good to hear you had a great time and thank you for your mail in which you indicated you would like to book again. We look forward to having you visit us again!

Beautiful villa and amazing view

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 12 fit comfortable In the house. Pictures on the website don't capture the full beauty of the place. Pool was big and well kept. The care taker was very attentive and responsive to our requests. All in all we were all very happy with the villa. Would definetely recommend it to family and friends. The owner yvonne was also very nice and gave us great tips about places and things to do on the island.
