Overview

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.

About Berge Alyanak

My wife Yohanna and I live in Toronto, Canada. We discovered Curacao a few years 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.

Berge Alyanak purchased this apartment in 2012

Beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful condo on a beautiful island. The pool is literally steps away, and if you prefer sand there are two infinity pools with sandy surrondings just a short walk at Papagayo.

Fabulous vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, beautiful location and overall an Amazing stay. Rental staff (manon) and owner, Berge, were all incredibly helpful (eg., we got lost arriving very late at night trying to initially find the place- manon talked us through getting there by phone and we were so grateful for her help with two tired young kids in the back seat!). The place itself is exactly as pictured. Clean, spacious, fully stocked, artfully decorated. Every morning we sat out in front deck and looked at the gorgeous view. Walking distance to resort area with beach access and more pools, bars etc. totally kid friendly and our family thoroughly enjoyed having fun in the unit pool and then taking a stroll to the beach and indulging in infinity and other pools. Grocery store just nearby- so convenient. We are definitely looking forward to another curaçao vacation and in this unit in particular again!

Great location, views and price!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, fabulous views! We drove all over Curaçao and this is the place to stay! Close to shops, restaurants and nice beaches. My two sisters, youngest daughter and best friend accompanied me to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was probably all of our favorite vacation ever. Snorkeling on the southwest side, eating, drinking, shopping and laughing - a girls dream trip!

Mosquitoes were not nice, but the owner has citronella candles on the deck. Need new bed pillows, but all in all, a great place! We'll definitely be back!

A wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 11 days and we regret that we couldn't stay longer but unfortunately we had to go back to work. Everything was working very well, from start to end. The few times we needed support from the property managers it was excellent! The apartment was very good, all we needed was there.

First we thought that we would manage without a car but quite soon we found out that we were wrong. We wanted to see more of the island and then it was of course very convenient to have a rental car. I think it was easy to drive on Curacao and we visited a lot of beaches along the coast. Our favourite turned out to be santa Maria even though all beaches were good.

We choose not to go to Klein Curacao due to the windy weather. We visited sea academy and had a swim with the dolphins which was nice :)

All in all - a wonderful place, easy living, no bugs or dangerous animals, perfect temperature on shore and in the sea, nice snorkling. Highly recommended!

Convenient and wonderfully relaxing!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with our 3 year old daughter and both of our moms, stayed here for a week! Everything was exactly as expected--beautiful, clean, spacious, relaxing and comfortable. The pool is a few steps from the rental and there were no stairs to climb :) It is close to the supermarket, beach, some high end restaurants and the bus stop to the Sea Aquarium, Willemstaad and other sites. I'd highly recommend going into town and finding some local (less touristy) restaurants to eat at since the nearby beach restaurants can be a bit pricey.

The Boca Gentil complex felt very safe and was very quiet. A perfect place for our family to have some down time together to celebrate my birthday after a long winter. Berge, the owner, as well as the property management company was a pleasure to deal with and always answered our questions. They even provided us with a small charcoal BBQ and a high chair for our kid.

We'd highly recommend it and would come back again!

Nice Relaxing Villa in Curacao

  • 4 of 5

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.

Check out the following YouTube link for an overview of the Jan Thiel area: http://youtu.be/fZA0pQEWoK0 (you may have to copy and paste this into your browser).

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 at Zanzibar, are all within a few minutes walking distance, at the western end of this gated community. There you will also find numerous restaurants, two scuba diving centers 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/VXLj6 (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.
