Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Curacao - Casa Vandernak

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Stunning Sea Views

Located in the sought-after district of Jan Thiel, this beautiful ground floor apartment comes complete with spectacular sea views of the blue Caribbean. You will also be treated to a bird's eye view of some of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. The property is part of the popular Boca Gentil Resort with its magnificent landscaping and 24-hour security.

This luxury suite features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large living room with a flat-screen TV and a DVD player. Also included is free high-speed wireless (Wi-Fi) internet.

The kitchen faces the terrace, and by opening the shutters you get a bar with stunning views of the sea, where you can see the local fishermen sailing by, or enjoy the many cruise ships that come along. The kitchen sports a spacious open layout and comes complete with all appliances, including a large fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and washing machine.

The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom equipped with two sinks, a shower and toilet. The master bedroom has twin box springs and a walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms open onto the hallway. In each bedroom there are two single box springs and these rooms share the second bathroom. As such the apartment can comfortably accommodate 6 guests. Of course, all bedrooms are also equipped with air conditioning.

On the spacious deck you'll find sunbeds and a large dining table, as well as a hammock where you can relax and enjoy your dream vacation. The deck is located higher than the road and is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping, giving you a great deal of privacy.

The apartment has a communal swimming pool which is only steps away. As such, since the pool is not directly in front of the apartment, you can enjoy a refreshing swim whenever you want, but not suffer the nuisance caused by other guests using the pool.

My wife and I live in Toronto, Canada. We discovered Curacao a short while ago and fell in love with the place. We now have a beautiful property there that we try and visit whenever time permits. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Nice Relaxing Villa in Curacao

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 18-Mar-2014
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2014
The owners and property managers were extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire process.

The pictures match the place perfect and it is very quiet and relaxing. It's in the best area of the Island and very secure with multiple restaurants in walking distance, with active beaches and amazing snorkeling right in front of Zanzibar.

The only reason I am not giving the unit 5 stars is that I felt that the linens and bedding could have been a bit more softer and upscale. Also the custom in Curacao / Dutch culture seems to be to not provide much basic accommodations where many American travelers do expect some basic essentials (dish soap, hand soap, paper towels, Windex etc). I travel to a lot of remote Islands and the small touches like soaps and essentials can really make the difference.

Regardless, I hope the owners provide some of these as it makes your arrival much easier as the Grocery Store nearby might be closed.

Other than those suggestions, I would recommend this Villa and would definitely lease it again while Visiting Curacao. The owners and managers are extremely nice and were a pleasure to work with.

Paradise Found!

The apartment is fantastic. We stayed for the first week in February and had a perfect view of the sunset at night, right next to the water. It doesn't get any better than this.
The apartment has a well stocked kitchen (plates, dishes, cookware); only thing missed was a few extra plastic cups to bring some cocktails to the pool (no glass allowed) and a reusable bag to carry groceries from the store.
They even had an outlet converter for the microwave/toaster which was handy since we did not think to bring one ourselves for the European style outlets.
Only 5 to 10 minute walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and casino.
It's worth renting a car to get to the more natural beaches on the west side of the island and exploring downtown Willemstad.
Will definitely return!

Just great

I stayed with my family (wife and 3years old daughter) and my parents in law at this wonderful apartment for the whole month of January. The apartment is situated in a gated area close to Jan Thiel beach. At this beach you have a few Restaurants and the feeling that you are staying in St. Tropez in August. Some like this, others don’t – we did.

The Apartment is just as it is described. Nice, clean, and perfectly located for holidays in Curacao. (Even though renting a car is recommended in order to visit other beaches and Willemstad). The views from the terrace and the sunsets are spectacular. There was really nothing missing and we have had a great time. I also like to mention the great communication with the owner and the management of the apartment. When we were asking for a barbeque grill (which was missing and might be something to consider for future guests?) we got one within one day. We also arranged a cleaning service with the management once a week – great service including the xchange of all the towels. One thing that the owner needs to review is the terrace with the wooden floor and the wooden table – they look rather used and need a refurbishment.

Close to the Apartment (like a ten minute easy walk) is a big grocery store with all the things necessary (and more!) Next to the mentioned grocery store is a gym where you can buy day, week and two week passes - everything new and very nice.

All in all - a great place, a very nice, clean, functional, perfectly located apartment with spectacular view and great service from the owner and the management.

I prefer keeping this gem a secret ...

I often visit the island of Curacao, sometimes even twice a year. And this was by far the most beautiful place I've stayed in. There is another great place but that was in the city and it's hard to compare the two as they're so different in style. But if you're looking for tranquility, calm, comfort, ease, a place to relax, swim, meditate- this is your place. The amount of bougainville is mind blowing (the pictures don't even show how lovely the flowers truly are) and humming birds pick at the aloe-type plants, I think they're called algabe and they shoot out to the skies in bright yellows which makes for an amazing contrast with the blue skies and purple bougainville.
There are many birds and you can stare at the sea from the porch. The beds are comfortable, the airconditioning works wonderfully and there's a superfast wifi connection.
The kitchen-utilities are better than I've seen anywhere else (including blender! for soups, or if you prefer... cocktails :)) and Berge + Yohanna have a great taste for art. The design is well done, pretty yet functional and comfortable. The area is calm and safe, the type of tourists that rent in this area are pleasant (not the rowdy kind...!).
From the house, it's a nice walk to the beach - but to me personally, that specific beach is the only downside (which has nothing to do with the house itself, mind you). That beach is an overcrowded and hipster/lounge style beach. But I've always avoided that specific beach and so everytime I'm in Curacao, I rent a car and drive to the more natural beaches on the west side of the island. From where Berge's house is at, that's a bit of a drive, but not an unpleasant one (avoid office-hours traffic though!!).
All in all - I desperately want to return to this place, so whoever reads this... shhhhh do not tell too many people :)
Thanks Berge and Yohanna!

Whether you want to relax in a quiet, peaceful oasis at home, or enjoy the many day-time activities and vibrant night-life offered by Curacao, everything is a short walk or drive away. If you want to go to the beach then the new beaches of Jan Thiel, including those of Papagayo or the beach of Zanzibar, are all within a few minutes walking distance, at the western end of this gated community. There you will also find 7 restaurants, a scuba diving center and various shops. Nearby activities include windsurfing, horseback riding, jet ski and ATV rentals, and biking. The quaint downtown area of Willemstad, with its historic forts, sidewalk cafes and floating markets, is only a 15 minute drive away.

There is a full, well-equipped gym, and sauna, within a few minutes' walk (usage charges are extra).

It is only a 30 minute drive from the airport to the apartment. Here is the link for the driving directions: http://goo.gl/maps/qUJyB (you may have to copy and paste this link into your browser).

As of December 2012, for your shopping needs, a new Albert Heijn supermarket has opened within a mere 5-minute walking distance.

There is also a dedicated parking spot available for guests of the apartment.
