This was our first trip to Curacao, but not our first island getaway. The magnificent house, the gorgeous location, the helpful community, the luxurious pool, the beaches and amazing atmosphere made this a paradise vacation for us all. We took our entire family (Mom, Dad and children with significant others) - all 8 of us stayed together and had the most memorable week together ever. We grilled by the pool, swam every day, visited a few beaches around the island, took a day trip to Klein Curacao and visited Willemstad twice. We've already talked about a return trip to this unforgettable island and house!
We booked a 7 day trip to the Curacao in a resort. For some reason we did not get the room we reserved and we had to bunk the kids with us as there was no ac in the living room. After a few days having 1 kid in our bed and the other on the lounger I started to look for other options. We found this home and it was vacant for the remainder of our trip .We only needed it for 2 nights, but the minimum rental was 3 days, we cancelled the last nights in the resort and went to the home.
It is located in a private community and it was a few minutes further from the beaches then the resort we stayed in. But how we loved it! Airco in all bedrooms and even in the living room, a huge kitchen with some welcome drinks and watermelon! We loved the bedrooms and the pool. The game room was a nice bonus as our daughter loved the Wii. We met the property manager and she was very friendly especially after hearing why we had left the resort. She recommended several places for dinner and beaches to choose from.
Our stay was short but it more or less saved our vacation. We had a pleasant surprise once we came back home. We did not only received back our deposit but we only had to pay for 2 days! The owner emailed us that all was fine with the house, no damage and that they were sorry to learn about our misfortune and are glad we had a short but great stay with them.
We already are planning to come back next year spring with our friends.
In the end we had a great holiday, the island is great , friendly people and a new favorite place to stay for our next trip!
