We liked the place and Leon was very helpful : he answered quickly every question we had and gave us a very good address to take the covid test.
The apartment is nice but need some « refresh » in the shower and more plates and glasses in the kitchen.
We didn’t get any hot water in the kitchen nor in the bathroom. The shower was okay though.
This is a minor issue but considering the price asked per night, we don’t expect this kind of problem.

My family and I stayed in the five star apartment for a week. From the minute you walk through the door your eyes are soothed with the incredible ocean view. We have done alot of traveling and I have to say this is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed. My husband is a chef and was extremely impressed with the facilities of the kitchen and the kids loved the pool. There was nothing not to love in this place. Location was amazing, close to great restaurants and after a day of exploring coming back to listen to the waves crashing against the rocks was the perfect end to the day. Leon from the start was amazing in answering all of our questions and was a great host. We will absolutely be back but until then I will keep these picture perfect images with me. Thank you for a wonderful stay PM78, you are a very special place❤️

We had a fantastic 7 nights at PM78 in the Urban Loft, plenty of space, bedroom kitchen living room and dressing room.Well appointed with Nespresso machine , and washing machine nearby. Leon responded to all our questions and issues promptly and effectively. Best of all the location in Pietermaii is superb. Access to literally dozens of restaurants, and an easy walk to Punda, Otrabanda and Scharloo, We even walked to Mambo Beach, 45min away.

We had a terrible experience with this property. It seems like there were many good reviews, but unfortunately, we had to deal with the owner.

Upon arriving, the keys were left dangling by the gate in an unsecured, open lockbox. We began to enter the yard, and the housekeeper brought us up to a room.

After about 1.5 hours, the housekeeper came to us with the owner on her phone. He was saying we were in the incorrect room. No apology. He basically blamed us for not realizing we were in the incorrect room. We began to pack our bags.

We were very upset and he showed up later at the door. He had liquor on his breath and continued to blame us for not knowing which room to take, took no responsibility for the housekeeper showing us to the wrong room or the unsecured keys being left outside. There was no offer of compensation for our troubles or any apology. We asked for a refund, but no. We did not feel safe staying and left. He also demanded that we leave in five minutes.

The room itself was decent for 1.5 hrs we were there. Not top quality clean. It was missing soap in the bathroom. One of the sinks was broken. The kitchen was a little grungy. The pool and beach was not for guests either.

We stayed in the 5* / Private pool apartment (first floor). It was a nice, clean space and had everything you needed. The bed was comfortable, with good AC and shower/water pressure.
The pool and outdoor area were nice, and we snorkeled right outside.
The only issues, that prevented 5 stars from me were: No Microwave, No TV, and the pool was used by stray dogs for their baths and had a lot of mosquitos, so not really usable.
Would I return - yes. I'll check to make sure they have the microwave though.
Location - in the heart of Willemstad.

I'm a little hesitant on sharing this Caribbean gem with the world, as I'm afraid it will be fully booked next time I want to stay there :)
I go to Curacao every year and have stayed in all sorts of set-ups ranging from apartments (through friends) to 5 star hotels (marriot) or holiday parks (Papagayo). My absolute favorite stay was here, at PM78. The owners - Cindy and David - have wonderful taste. They built the blue-house themselves. They understand the desires and needs of someone like me, and when I say someone like me I mean: hard working, writer, woman, interested in culture, in need of some rest from work, not interested in mass tourism... I was afraid that Curacao was becoming the kind of place that only catered to people who prefer to study their tan all day. So thank god for PM78.
PM78 is intimate. It's in the city (near the old city center of Punda) and so you're surrounded by old colonial style homes. True, there's a lot of city-noise and activity but somehow it doesn't matter, it's nice to sit out on your balcony and watch what's going on. These days, quite a few people walk the streets in that area and there are lovely restaurants to go to. This used to be different.
Do note that even though PM 78 is situated by the sea, both the studio and city apartment are on the street side. It's perfect if you like to do things your way, and on your own (with or without a partner). Rent a car, drive around, visit beaches or read a book under the fan.
If you're with kids or more friends, I recommend the 5-star apartment which has its own pool and is on the sea-side. I peeked in and it's totally amazing. Best of all worlds. Privacy + a good way of deepening that tan :)
The owners David and Cindy are lovely. The door is always open (unless they're out) and you can ask them anything, anytime. They respect your privacy, yet are also open for a friendly chat if that's what you want!
The aircon is perfect, the other facilities are too (such as wifi, toaster, fridge, beach bag, towels, safe). If you don't feel like driving for a swim, you can make use of the Saint Tropez Ocean Club pool which is a stone's throw away without having to pay entrance fee.
If you're coming from Europe, and you find yourself waking up too early and hungry, you can walk over to the Scuba Lodge hotel for a full breakfast. You'll be having your eggs with your feet in the sand and staring at that wonderful sea.
Enjoy!
(ps - keep it a secret!)

The PM78 BEACH HOUSE is a superb choice for those travellers that want to escape the stereotypical ‘resort’ experience. The Beach House is actually a house on the beach, with a private entrance, private patio and pool. So, if escaping from the crowds is your ‘thing’, this is for you.

Why we recommend the Beach House:
1. Privacy
2. Responsiveness of the host, Cindy
3. The stylish, but minimalist decor.
4. The included amenities: fully fitted kitchen with dishwasher, washing machine.
5. Spacious interior.
6. The location in the hip Pietermaai neighbourhood.
7. Proximity to historic sites.
8. Proximity to a substantial no. of moderately priced, but outstanding restaurants.
9. 5 minutes walk to a supermarket and car hire.
10. Easy access to the Curaçao ‘ring’ road.

The house is located in Punda, in the charming and characteristic neighborhood of Pietermaai.
It takes approx 20 min from the airport. The owners (Cindy and David) will contact you few days before your arrival to ask you for your flight information and provide you with directions (very accurate).
When you get to the house you will be welcomed by Cindy and David and they will provide you with all the info you need plus a fresh plate of fruit and a bottle of prosecco (not bad for a start).
We stayed in the junior suite room. The room is on the first floor and has a balcony with a table a couple of chairs, perfect spot to start they day or end it.
The room Is very nice and unique. It has a double sinks and large shower too.
It was very clean. Besides few mosquito we did not find any bug.
The rooms had everything we needed plus more. Just to name the most useful tools that you will find in the room:
Beach towels, plenty of towels, cups, mugs, plates, fridge, toaster, a nespresso machine with capsules (the first 4 are free, then each one is 1 naf), tv, desk with a comfy chair to work, cooler for the beach ( Cindy and David will provide you ice too), a small hanger and a safe.
The room has plenty of shelves and a wardrobe to store your clothes and empty your pockets when you get in.
It has air conditioning and a fan. They both work perfectly and without noise.
The internet connection is fast and works perfectly even if you connect multiple things.
If you have a car and there s a spot available inside the property (there are 2 spots inside ) you can park inside and you will receive the remote controller for the gate.
If you are not lucky enough to get the spot, don t worry. There s plenty of room in the road in front of the house especially during the week. It gets a bit crowded during the week end.
The reason why it gets crowded is because there are many restaurants and bar close by (walking distance). Few nice options within 3 minutes walk are Kome, Crystal, ginger, rock beach, blue bird bar, mondo bizarro..
Within 10 minutes walk you get pretty much anywhere in Punda, including the floating market where you can get fresh fruit every single day. There is also a bakery called Golden Corner on the way to the floating market. They open at 6 and they make fresh doughnuts every day!
Cindy and David are very cool and they help you out a lot with direction and recommendations. Cindy also helped us making reservations for activities (for example Klein Curacao Tour, which is incredible).
We enjoyed so much the place that next time we will be in Curacao we already know where to stay.

We first stayed at PM78 almost 6 years ago. At that time we stayed a week in the Junior Suite and a week at the 5* Apartment. My review was glowing. This time when we planned our trip, we had a look around to see if there was anything better to try out. In the end we couldn't find a better place to stay and booked the Ocean View Loft for 2 weeks.

As in my previous review, the location is stellar. You can walk to a ton of great restaurants. All your grocery shopping, eating and drinking needs are close by. The location is very safe, we never felt uncomfortable walking around at night.

The Ocean View Loft is a great room to rent. The balcony is huge and spacious overlooking the ocean. The sunsets every night were spectacular. The rest of the apartment is very spacious with a European design. The entire wall to the balcony is a sliding glass door that opens almost the entire width of the room. We had the wall open the entire 2 weeks we were there 24 hours a day, closing it only once during a storm. Being able to sleep with the sounds of the ocean was great. You are able to sleep this way and still be comfortable thanks to their unique air conditioning system. It only cools the air over the bed, not the entire room. We slept very comfortably with this system. I was surprised by how well it worked.

Cindy and David are great hosts. They are very attentive to your needs but will leave you be. They respond quickly to your questions or concerns. I have found dealing with them and their website very easy. Everything is open and clear on the site. The descriptions and photos accurately reflect what you are getting. The costs are detailed and known ahead of time.

Overall another great stay. I would recommend this place to friends and family.

Hello Jane, thank you for your message. The website is giving exactly the information that the pool in the yard of the 5* Apartment is only for the guests of the 5* Apartment, no misleading at all. We are offering different apartments on different locations, all with their own amenities, you can read this clearly in the text and see it on the pictures. Our website is very clear that there is no shared pool. If you like to explore the island, visit the many different beaches and stay in a cozy suite in the middle of historic Pietermaai, which offers services like a cool box, beach bag, personal service, groceries upon arrival, private parking lot and much more, we are looking forward to welcome you! If you like to have a private pool we can offer our 5* Ocean Front Oasis apartment or the Beach House Pietermaai. If you like to have a shared pool, you can find it at other accommodations. Sunny regards, Cindy & David PM78 Urban Oasis Curacao

Good day, thank you for your question. Only the 5* Ocean Front Oasis has a private pool. The other apartments, including the Junior Suite don't have a pool access. But on a very short walking distance, you can visit a large ocean front pool of an Ocean Club. Also a City Beach is on a couple of foot steps away. Many possibilities here in Pietermaai District. If you have other questions, please let us know. Sunny regards, Cindy PM78 Curacao

Thank you again for these questions. Please can you contact us directly via our website? I can send you than enclosures with more information about the grocery package and others and I need your preference for which apartment and travel dates to check if it is still available for you. House keeping depends on which apartment you chose and how long you stay. Extra cleaning service is not used in the past. Yes, our guests ordered sometimes the grocery package. Especially when they have had a late arrival in the evening or don't have a rental car on the first day. Looking forward to your private message through our website to answer your questions more detailed according to your preferences.
