Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Curacao - Villa Seashell

CHECK OUR WEBSITE: www.villaseashell.com

Villa Seashell is a luxury oceanfront villa located in the prestigious resort of Coral Estate (24/7 security), close to Curacao’s most beautiful beaches on the west side of the island. From the moment you enter our home, you get the sense of privacy and tranquility you deserve.

The closest beach, with crystal-clear, warm, calm blue water, is only 200 yards from your doorstep. It is perfect for diving, snorkeling, swimming, lounging, and tanning.

Even the most travelled among you will be amazed about the space in this villa, with its four bedrooms, all with their private (en-suite) bathrooms.

The two bedrooms upstairs have indulgent king-size beds, and the two downstairs each have two single beds, with the option to make them into a king-size bed.

The real showstopper is the thatched-roof hut in the backyard—the perfect retreat after a day at the beach.

Your kids can splash around in the sparkling pool as you sip cocktails watching the tropical fish and turtles in the crystal-clear ocean, while small fishing boats pass by and the sun sets on the horizon.

As night falls, you can enjoy dinner at the restaurant & lounge bar Karakter (at the beach down the road), explore the international restaurants of historic Willemstad, or cook your own dinner at the villa’s gourmet kitchen, watching the lights of the boats at night.

Although you’ll probably prefer to spend most of the day outside, the villa offers a spacious indoor sitting and dining area with European antiques mixed with Caribbean colors.

Give yourself the vacation you truly deserve by booking this amazing villa today!

The best meals are homemade, and the casual and friendly atmosphere of someones home can not be captured in a restaurant. This is why we introduced the concept 'Have dinner with.....'.

SPECIAL:

One free dinner for all guests staying at Villa Seashell in the months of March and April 2015.

This special can only be booked between November 12 and Thanksgiving.

About Linda Lou Huiskes

Nothing is more rewarding than hosting families for their vacation of a lifetime. It is fantastic to see how our guests feel quickly at home and appreciate the attention we put into everything here. We are very often graced with fun and dynamic guests that make hosting Villa Seashell a great new experience each day.

Our family of four lives in Aruba. Your contact, Linda Lou, works as an artisan making beautiful jewelry and wall decorations from the treasures of the ocean. As the name implies, a lot of Linda Lou’s art can be found back at Villa Seashell.

We enjoy renting vacation homes ourselves. Our favorite destinations are the United States, Italy, and France. We’re avid snorkelers and mountain bikers.

Linda Lou Huiskes purchased this villa in 2008

Why Linda Lou Huiskes chose Curacao

Our family has always loved the tropics. We would travel the Caribbean to escape the cold Dutch winters. We felt in love Curacao; it has the best of both worlds, Caribbean with a Dutch flavor. The beautiful, warm, friendly people enticed us to make this place our home. We found this unique oceanfront villa with its breathtaking panoramic views five years ago and completely rebuilt it.

Besides going to one of the beautiful beaches, we like to venture out into the countryside and explore the rolling hills topped by plantation houses built more than three centuries ago, or visit the north coast, with its raw beauty.

On the northern side of the island, the rough sea has been smashing against the rocky coastline for centuries and has carved caves and little inlets into the rock. It is great to walk over the massive volcanic rocks and observe the wildlife, listen to the wind, and climb down into the caves to observe the waves crashing against its walls.

We also like to visit Willemstad, which is only a 20-minute drive. It has attractive stores, exquisite restaurants and rich architecture that tells a tale of its history.

Hato International Airport connects the island with the rest of the world, with direct daily flights to Europe, the United States and South America.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is not the typical vacation rental. It used to be our primary home, filled with high-quality furniture, luxurious amenities and architectural details.

The location of the villa is very unique; anyone going there just falls in love with it. The views of the ocean are breathtaking at all times of the year. Star-filled nights or a full moon shining across the ocean and lighting the pool for a night swim make this place a unique vacation spot.

The place we like best at Villa Seashell is the very large gazebo at the border of the ocean, with its 10-person lounge set, hammocks and dining table; and the wooden deck above the ocean where you can catch your own fish and enjoy the sunset.

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 out of 5
I cannot begin to say enough about Villa Seashell! What a remarkable place! The villa and the grounds are breath taking. The description of the villa was spot on and the pictures were not enhanced on the site. It is just as beautiful if not more in person. Linda Lou was such a joy to work with. She made our trip planning process effortless and provided a lot of info about Curacao. I would definitely work with her again if we had the opportunity to return to Curacao. The entrance to the community had 24-7 security, which made you feel completely safe. There was a small beach and restaurant within a 5 minute walk from the villa. I wish we would have spent more time there because it was convenient, clean, and had the best snorkeling of all the places we were able to visit.
As far as restaurants go, we ate at some of the best places. Landhuis Misje and Trio Penotti were our favorites. Amazing food and reasonable prices. We also enjoyed Sol Food. Sunshine was such a joy to talk to, which made the dining experience a ton of fun. Kome and Gouverneur de Rouville were amazing as well.
We enjoyed exploring Punda and walking across the floating bridge. Definitely a great photo opportunity.
As far as activities go, we love to snorkel. Porto Mari was a beautiful beach with some good snorkeling. We also enjoyed the beach by the villa. The others were okay, but not as good as the above two. Unfortunately, we ran out of time to be able to explore a lot of the upper west beaches, which I heard were great as well.
Last but not least, we rented a vehicle through D & D Car Rental. This was the easiest car rental process I have ever been through. The pick up process was on site at the airport and took less than 5 minutes. The drop off process was 1/2 as long. I would definitely use Daniel again. On our last vacation involving a car rental, my husband and I stood in line for 2 hours waiting to rent a car to find out that the car we rented was not available. Daniel provided the vehicle that we had reserved.
Overall, what a great 1st trip to Curacao. I am hoping for many more and would definitely work with Linda Lou again!! Thank you for being such a wonderful host!!

Breathtaking views, better than the pictures!

  • 5 out of 5
Loved the privacy and location, the view is breathtaking! The villa is much nicer than the pictures show. It is located near all the beaches on the west side and close to some great restaurants. We went jogging each morning in Coral Estate and can tell you this is the most exclusive area on the island. The area is beautiful, very quiet, and very safe. We already booked for next year! Recommend this gem to every family visiting Curacao!

Perfect location. Amazing views. Flawless vacation

  • 5 out of 5
The property was perfect in everyway! Walk to location beaches or just a short drive to a full service beach. The house was immaculate and the furnishings comfortable. There was a constant breeze so the house stayed cool. My original concern (as with any island) were mosquitos; however we didn't get one bite the entire trip.

The views were fantastic and we spend 90% of our time outside on the deck, in the pool or in the Lanai. While the owner graciously furnishes the house with a large selection of books, games and DVDs the home was so peaceful and the view was so amazing we were content to just sit outside and enjoy.

This home would be perfect for a romantic getaway and is still very family friendly. Rare that one finds the both in one location. The home is very private and the neighborhood exceptionally quiet and peaceful.

The owner is very accessible and a pleasure to work with. We will certainly return and rent Villa Seashell again, only this time for a long stay.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 out of 5
This was our first visit to Curaçao. Linda Lou was extremely helpfull with tips about the island. Her home was just PERFECT! I have to use the term "home" because it was not like your typical rental property. The best breezes, views, sunsets and my favorite the chairs on the deck. We cannot wait to bring our family back there. Coral Estates was beautiful. We felt very secure. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The Karakter Restaurant and Diversity Dive shop were terrific as well. We could not have asked for more. This is a MUST GO!
