STUNNING VIEWS – WATCH TURTLES AND TROPICAL FISH FROM YOUR SEASIDE HAMMOCK!

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

SPACIOUS, all bedrooms have PRIVATE BATHROOMS, only KING SIZE and SINGLE BEDS!!

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 gazebo 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!

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

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.

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.

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!

A TRUE HOME

  • 5 out of 5
this place has an unbeatable plus: it is not a (loveless and run dwon) vacation rental, it is HOME, a soulful place with every detail lovingly taken care of, fully equipped, modern kitchen, spacious bed- and bathrooms, state of the art everything. it is extremely quiet and peaceful, the house/garden as well as the entire neighborhood in Coral Estate. A good dive base, restaurant and beach just 500 meters away. Tell the dive base you are staying at Coral Estate and you will get a discount. We enjoyed the nature all around us, saw turtles swim by every morning as we had breakfast on the porch, humming birds, pelicans, etc., etc. Yet, during our entire stay, none of us had a single mosquito bite. We did not find a second spot on the island where we could enjoy a mosquito-free sundowner (we believe the reason is a combination of location, wise land-scaping and smart design). The architecture of the house brings a slight breeze in every room which makes it possible to sleep without aircon (this was February) So, if you do not have the greatest time of your life at this place, we say: sorry, but it is entirely your own fault -:)

PERFECT OCEANFRONT RENTAL...VIEWS AND TRANQUILITY

  • 5 out of 5
As a group of 9 (four couples and a 16 month old baby), we were looking for a comfortable, spacious vacation rental and did not want to compromise on views. Coral Estates, where the villa is located, is a private enclave, tucked away just outside of Willibrordus (jokingly referred to as Williwood by the locals...with a sign to go with it). With a 24-hour gated entrance and formidable terrain between the community and the rest of the island, the only sense we got in our 10 day stay was that of peace, quiet and safety. With all four bedrooms air conditioned there was no issue with sleeping in comfort, but the true key to the property is its West-facing position, and the absolutely amazing and huge back porch, and charming lower viewing cabana / patio. The back porch has a huge table, plenty big enough for all the guests and even additional friends---at least 12 comfortably. The lower structure was the only place we ever considered for sundowners, morning coffee and midday reading. From anywhere on the back side of the house you can take in the amazing Caribbean sea, supertankers off in the distance, and the occasional wildlife (the resident lizards of course, as well as flying fish and sea turtles), but the premier spot is the cabana. It had plenty of cushioned seating for all of us, and a separated area with hammocks and an additional table (we played games around it late at night). We also took advantage of the Weber charcoal grill for a perfect oceanfront bbq. The pool was an additional amazing factor in our enjoyment...perfect for a dip when heading to the beach or out for a snorkel didn't match our energy level.

A very few suggestions. The tiles around the pool area are slippery when wet...so be especially vigilant with kids, and when it isn't windy the bugs can be a nuisance-bring spray. When walking down to the gazebo, a path of smooth pavers would make it easier, as the back is totally xeroscaped in coral and rock. Overall, can't wait to get back!

PICTURES DO NOT DO THIS LOVELY VILLA JUSTICE!

  • 5 out of 5
Curacao is the perfect island to have a memorable vacation.
We stayed at Villa Seashell – Coral Estate. Everything in the villa was neat & clean, we had everything we needed (especially loved the big fridge & freezer, the comfortable and clean beds with nice sheets - unlike at some other places, clean bathrooms and comfortable furniture). We felt really like home. We did not use the television at all. The villa has a good internet connection, we could even Skype home and show our families a little of Curacao. We had bbq several nights, and watched the sun set each day. It was perfect.

The manager was kind and helpful. I felt safe at Coral Estate, the night was very quiet, we could rest, and that is important when on vacation. We got up in the morning before the sunrise and went to the beaches very early. Therefore we always arrived 1st or 2nd. This was perfect for us as we would have the beach a few hours to ourselves. We took a look at the underwater world in the morning. That is when the sun illuminates the sea and we could take the most beautiful pictures of the blue blue water.

All in all, everything was perfect at Villa Seashell. We fell in love with Curacao, and when (because I am sure we will return some day) we will come back, we would definitely stay here.

Also, this side of the island is the most beautiful, with the national park, iguanas, lizards, lovely birds, and of course the most beautiful beaches on the whole island, and not to forget the crabs in the sand. It is not that touristy, but maybe that is why it remained so gorgeous.

Thanks Linda Lou!!
