About the property


If you'd like to step out of your every day life, if you're ready to live in a world away from what you know, if you're ready to slow down and surrender to a breathtaking setting with no nearby neighbors and with absolutely nothing between you and the turquoise water....then there's nowhere that can compare with Surrender Villa in Westpunt, Curacao.

Our family's Mediterranean-style, one-story privately owned villa was completed in 2011 and rests upon the seaside cliffs in Westpunt, a small village in the north of Curacao. Surrender is at the western most point of the island making it the perfect place to take in the magnificent Caribbean sunsets. The villa is situated in a gated community on a spacious, private 1.5 acres and was built for entertaining. It is the perfect place to come with family and friends. “Surrender” to the blue sea, the warm sunny days and the starry nights.

Once you arrive at the end of our courtyard, you'll travel down the long private driveway where you’ll glimpse beautiful flowering plants native to the island. The private, spacious, architecturally landscaped grounds feature a small grove of shade trees with sitting area, a beautiful stairway carved into the cliffs leading down to the ocean, a cliff diving platform, and rock walls along the property lines.

The villa’s interior might best be described as 5,000 square feet of casual elegance in a spectacular setting that takes full advantage of the tropical beauty that is the island of Curacao. A very large open living area encompasses the kitchen, dining room and living room. Thirty-foot, fully retractable doors open to the cliff side terrace and state-of-the-art infinity pool with nothing standing between you and the Caribbean.

Ocean view sleeping accommodations include an enormous master bedroom suite with a separate sitting room, a large private bathroom, a walk in closet, and private doors to the terrace. There are three other generously-sized bedrooms and a fourth smaller room that may be used for a nanny, cook, or extra guest. . There are three additional full bathrooms. The family room also features two queen-size pullout sofa beds.

The kitchen was designed with the chef in mind and boasts a Miele Oven, Gagganau Cooktop and Exhaust Fan, Microwave, Dishwasher, Nespresso Coffee Maker, and all small counter top appliances.

Some of the additional features you'll find include:

--Samsung HDTV’s With International Programming, Access To Movies And Sporting Events

--DVD Player

--Bose Sound Dock

--Speed Queen Washer And Dryer

--Air Conditioning Units In Each Room

--48″ DCS Outdoor Grill

--Advance Technology Alarm System,

--24-Hour Gated Security

--Wireless Internet Access


Grote Knip - located at the western side of the island, between the villages of Westpunt and Lagun. An easy ten minute walk from Surrender Villa. The beach gives way to a small lagoon and is surrounded by high rock cliffs. With a coral reef nearby, Grote Nip has wonderful snorkeling.

Playa Porto Mari is located on the private estate of Plantages on the west coast of Curacao. Its white coral sand beach, with clear and calm water is a true paradise for water lovers and the unique “double” reef is easily accessible from the shore providing a fascinating snorkel and dive site

Playa Cas Abou (aka Bon Bini Beach) was recently listed as one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations' in a Yahoo! travel article. Popular with both locals and tourists, on the weekends Cas Abou is one of the most crowded beaches. But the reason is simple: it’s beautiful!

About Janet J.

Our family purchased the 2 adjacent lots perched on the cliffs of the Caribbean Ocean in Westpunt in 2008 and oversaw the construction of the 5,000 square foot villa which was completed in 2011. Almost everything within the villa had to be shipped from overseas. We find it's the perfect gathering spot to bring family and friends to spend quality time together in a setting that is nothing short of awesome. Although our family is originally from New Jersey. today we are spread out across the United States. Among our family members are businessmen, poets, artists, students, seekers, philosophers, teachers, aspiring actors and directors. The matriarch of our family turns 92 at the end of this year! We're all dog lovers and between us we have English Springer Spaniels, Golden Retrievers, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels and one big handsome mixed breed among our ranks.

Janet J. purchased this villa in 2008

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the high praise. Your words hit the nail on the head. Surrender was built to be just as you said... a sanctuary. If peace and privacy in a private oceanfront villa set atop a bluff in an unbeatable location are what you're seeking, you can't do better than to "surrender" to Surrender. You're welcome to stay in our home anytime.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the property! The house was very comfortable, the pool was perfect for cooling off, and the views were outstanding. The ocean access was icing on the cake. The only thing we felt was missing were floating air mattresses to relax in the pool. Other than that, we felt everything else was there for a very enjoyable stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the wonderful review. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay in our home. And thanks a second time for the suggestion of flotation rafts for the infinity pool. We love the idea! You're always welcome at Surrender.

Beautiful villa in a beautiful location.

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa in a beautiful location, Villa Surrender was a real treat for us. We are a family group of 6 and recently stayed there for a winter vacation. The villa is gorgeous, with plenty of accommodation and facilities for all, nicely furnished and with a well equipped kitchen. The large glass wall in the main living room is a set of glass sliding doors which can be completely opened and replaced by screens to create a very open feeling. The pool was excellent and clean and the villa is surrounded by gardens which are obviously well maintained. There were a couple of issues that surfaced while we were there but the owners and property manager were quick to address them and the disruptions were minimal. The property includes a small private cliff diving platform complete with a ladder for exiting the water and which managed to get all of us jumping in again and again. For the divers, it’s very close to a local dive shop which runs dives on the reef just a few feet off the property’s shore. Do your shopping in/near Willemstad before you arrive because there are few places to shop in the area near the villa, although there are a couple of nice local restaurants in town. Overall, it’s a great escape and a fantastic spot for a family vacation.

Surrender Villa: Making Memories, Not Dreaming of Them

  • 5 of 5

My extended family and I were on a mission to enjoy life with the mantra, "life should be memories and not dreams", and our expectations were definitively met with our recent July 2016 stay at Surrender Villa located in Westpunt-Sabana, Curacao. I have visited Curacao 4 times prior to this stay and certainly enjoyed my stay in the Willemstad area. Having traversed to the Western part of Curacao from Willemstad to explore the many beautiful cove-like beaches, I decided to look for a rental on that part of the island. Surrender Villa is as "west" as you can get with a flag and marker denoting the property by the Curacao government as being just that!

The property is located within a gated community and accessed via the Kura Hulanda Lodge and Beach Resort located near Playa Kalki. We were met by the local property manager who cordially welcomed us and amply introduced us to the Villa. We were a group of nine, and it comfortably accommodated all of us. We did not feel on top of each other with 4 bedrooms, three full baths, and a large family entertainment room that served as a sleeping area for my younger nieces with two pull out bed.

Surrender Villa is so tastefully designed with a fully modern kitchen and open floor plan. However the real 'star' of the Villa is the large Mediterranean outside pool area, where I think we spent more time outside than inside. The large infinity pool was paradise looking over the blue waters of the Caribbean, and being due West, sunsets were spectacular. Being from Philadelphia, I also enjoy nighttime outside forgetting how many stars are in the sky as we were certainly free from night light pollution.

The property owner Janet, was so very helpful during the rental process, from details on payments right down to her own personal recommendations of sights to visit on the island.

Besides being tastefully decorated, small essentials are there from beach chairs, towels, coolers, right down to even shopping bags! One day we did not even leave the property from morning coffee to dining al fresco utilizing the modern outdoor grill.

I can't say enough about Surrender Villa. As one of my brother-in-laws stated "this is living the dream"!

PS: I must not forget that there is a view of the Caribbean from almost every room!

I try my very best to do all I can to not just ensure our guests' satisfaction but to exceed their expectations.

Villa Surrender was the perfect place for our family vacation, offering privacy and luxury in a magnificent setting.

The villa itself is gorgeous - tastefully decorated in a way that made it feel both comfortable and elegant. Plenty of room with lots of different areas to relax and spend time together. A bit isolated, but anything needed was either available at the house or could be arranged by Hynrich, the property's wonderful caretaker.

The house is situated on the edge of a cliff, with gentle trade winds keeping the temperature comfortable and insects at bay. The patio is the perfect spot for sunset viewing.

So glad you believe our Property Manager, Hynrich, took good care of you. We are so very lucky to have him. He makes the happiness of our guests his number one priority! How many others property owners are fortunate enough to be able to say that??? You are always welcome at Surrender.

Beautiful, serene, wonderful escape from the day t

  • 5 of 5

The property and views were spectacular. Sitting on the patio or around the pool looking over the ocean was very relaxing. Cruise ships passing by in the distance and local fisherman closer in were our daily entertainment. The house was comfortable, clean, and very well maintained, inside and out. Everything we needed for our stay was available. We enjoyed sitting on the covered patio each day for meals. We made good use of the gas grill outside. The pool was very relaxing and very clean. Willemstad is an easy 30 minute ride if you want to see and do touristy things. Wonderful shops, restaurants, and vendors in the city which is a UNESCO heritage site. The floating farmer's market was fun to experience. There are several restaurants near the property that we enjoyed and would recommend. I would highly recommend this property to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Your use of adjectives like "spectacular,: "relaxing" and fun in describing your stay at Surrender Villa is music to our ears! We couldn't agree more. The house, property and sparkling ocean beckon all who visit to step out of their day-to-day lives and "surrender" to the magic that is Curacao. Thanks so much for your review. You are always welcome in our home. :)

If it's hustle and bustle 24 hours a day that you're seeking, Villa Surrender is probably not the right vacation rental for you. The villa is located on the quiet end of the island. Here it is peaceful and low-key and the villa itself is quite secluded. But within an hour there is shopping, sightseeing, golf, gambling, museums and lots of activity. We'll have a guidebook waiting for you upon your arrival.
