Andrea and Chris Wait purchased this townhome in 2010
Why Andrea and Chris Wait chose Curacao
We have been vacationing in the Carabbean for many years. The island of Curacao however, is the only one that kept drawing us back for repeat visits. Initially we were staying at the 'hotels' near the city of Willemstad. Without fail, we always found ourselves making daily trips to the Westpunt side of the island. The beaches, mountains, diving, north shore boca's and relaxed pace are all splenders that are unrivaled elsewhere on Curacao. We finally asked ourselves, why are we staying in Willemstad....Westpunt it the place to be! So for our next trip we researched villa's in Westpunt, stumbled upon Marazul and ultimately booked a stay. The moment we walked into the resort, we know we found something very very special. The next day, we learned that 2B might become available for sale. The thought of actually owning an oceanfront villa in the Caribbean consumed the balance of our vacation. Until now, the idea was only a dream. But Marazul was different, we felt at home. The day after we returned to Charlotte from our vacation, we contacted the potential seller, and ultimately made the purchase. We had found our dream come true and hope to share it with you as well. Apartment 2B in Curacao is the place 2B.
What makes this townhome unique
Newly expanded master bedroom suite it the resorts only townhome with such as suite. The Pergola on the upper level tiled balcony transformed the space into a perfect shaded spot to relax, dine or just soak in the ocean scenes.
