Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday condo in Curacao
Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)
Our recently constructed two level one bedroom beachfront condominium is located on a beautiful bluff just steps away from the beach and blue calm waters. Due to natural topography of the beach and bluff, the water is very calm. Breathtaking views from the condo range from mountain views to the left, to lagoon views directly ahead and Caribbean ocean views to the right allowing both sunrise and sunsets to be seen from the condo deck. Because the beach is lit at night, the beach view can even be enjoyed after dark.
Relax, swim, dive, snorkel, hike or read a book while watching the blue Caribbean waters on the secluded West End Curacao. Enjoy a sunrise over the mountains or sunset over the ocean from our comfortable deck adjacent to the bedroom. Our beach chairs stored in the apartment are for your use so you can fully enjoy your beach vacation. Two twin beds can be used separately or easily pushed together based on preferences.
Two additional guests may sleep on our comfortable Dutch leather sleeper sofa. A full bath on each level allows complete privacy. Allow the gentle winds and lapping ocean waves to rock you to sleep while you rest safely with open windows in this gated private resort. Ceiling fans located in each room assist the island breeze. Air conditioning units on each level are available but we have never found the need to use them.
A kitchen allows food preparation and storage if desired. Take a short walk to enjoy a wonderful lunch or dinner at a dive shop on the beach or walk next door on Thursday to Bahia Inn to savor an all you can eat island dinner or BBQ buffet. A 3 minute walk to a local Snack Bar allows you to mingle with Curacao locals and get inexpensive take out.Walk down a few stairs to the beach and watch for the daily visits from sea turtles coming right up to shore to say “Bon Bini”. Pelicans will fly in and search for fish on many mornings and afternoons.
Iguanas bask in the sun along the cliff. Local fishermen return to our beach daily and you can buy their fresh catch if you wish.
Dolphin will occasionally visit and watching their playfulness is always a treat. On the beach you will meet other world travelers from many countries and the friendly locals will strike up conversations and you may find that in a short while you have become good friends.
Curacao lies outside the “Hurricane Belt”. There are a few occasional rain showers.
Don your snorkel or scuba gear and back paddle less than 80 yards to the easily navigable reef which is parallel to the shore. Tank rental is less than $10 US. Boat diving in Curacao is simply not needed but is easily available if you so desire.Take a rest at a sidewalk bistro on the banks of the canal and sip a coffee or try a Dutch treat filled with warm Gouda cheese.
Round out your excursion with a tour of the picturesque Dutch architecture or enjoy the Kuru Hulanda museum where you will learn of the history of Curacao and slave trade.Further east is one of the best Caribbean aquariums where your guide will insure an enjoyable time by all and sign the kids into the Dolphin Academy to provide a true touch and feel experience.
Return to the West End and realize why our glorious lagoon is home. Take a cooling dip in the resort pool for guests only then watch the sun set on another lovely day in paradise.
