When we came across this listing, my wife and I immediately booked it. Once we arrived we were even more excited as the Casita was absolutely beautiful. The pictures on the website were very accurate. Very clean and well appointed, very private and wonderful landscaping that gave us the feeling of a tropical paradise. Though there was ocean access via a staircase and a ladder to the sea, it was much too rough while we were there to enjoy it. However there were two beautiful beaches just a short drive away. I would recommend a rental car to make going and coming much easier. Also just a 10 minute walk was the dive shop and beach, along with the restaurant & bar. We enjoyed cocktails and appetizers along with a fun evening of Jazz on Thursday nights. The owners Mercedes and Willem were extremely helpful and accomadating even allowing us to enjoy the next door villa's pool and jacuzzi as no one was there at the time. All in all it was a great experience and we would recommend this property highly.

Our own personal paradise!

Where to start -- to echo everyone else, the photos do not do this place justice. My husband and I were blown away by the absolute beauty of the Casita. It had everything we needed and more! So many places to relax. I will forever remember the sound of the waves crashing on the rocks below ... these were the sounds that lulled us to sleep each night and the first thing we heard on awakening each morning.

Also can't speak highly enough of Mercedes. Although we did not get the chance to meet, Mercedes was a gracious host by offering to food shop for us and stock the fridge due to our late afternoon arrival on New Year's Eve. The kitchen area was well stocked and allowed us to cook a few meals rather than eating out every night.

We very much enjoyed exploring the area beaches and the west side of the island. Both Willemstad and Westpunt areas were 30-45 minute drives and were great day trips.

I would highly recommend this special place to any and all -- I just can't wait to go back!!

Honeymoon in Paradise - Part 2

  • 5 out of 5

Part 2....

Hopefully from part 1 you will realise that the Casita is, in our opinion, perfect for location, views, surroundings, cleanliness and amenities. - Plus free WiFi
Over our two week stay on Curacao we managed to explore most of the island, one thing we did note was that some of the roads on some of the maps are private roads, on the maps we were using these were light grey. We can highly recommend hiring a truck (nissan nivara etc) to get around in, they are common place on the island and there is a reason why!
We spent alot of time in the north of the island, as it is has the national park - mountains and boka's and a number of very beautiful beaches. We spent a couple of days enjoying the sites of Willemstad with the moving bridge.
Restaurants - over the two weeks we ate out a number of times, the first time we went to L'aldea - grill & steakhouse, the food was excellent and plentiful although the selection was not as extensive as we have seen elsewhere, the staff were excellent, the downside was the price, for what we had we felt it was a little expensive which we did comment on in the comments leaflet. The second night out we stayed closer to home and went to Karakter, just behind the Habitat hotel - Wow... the view (not suprising considering how close to the Casita it is), the Service excellent - the food excellent and the price - reasonable (oh and the Jazz nights are very good (Mercedes' husband plays in the band!)) we ate here a number of times and the staff are willing to do a take away if you do not fancy eating in the restaurant. We also ate at Sol food which is in Westpunt, it is in the back yard of Sunshines' house, the garage has been turned into a smart looking kitchen - and they do a mean steak! no need to get dressed up but it is a must just for the experience!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time on Curacao - the best beach in our opinion was Grote Knip (North West of the Island) and free also has Klien Knip next to it... very good snorkelling area - although Westpunt is claimed to have turtles when the fishermen come in....

We would love to come back to Curacao in a few years to see how it has developed and when we do we shall certainly be looking to stay with Mercedes again - a fantastic host - thank you so very much for giving us the most amazing Honeymoon it was truly unforgettable!

A Honeymoon in Paradise part 1

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 19-Dec-2012
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2012
Where to begin....
After flying from the UK to Amsterdam and then onto Curacao we were very pleased to arrive, stepping out of the aircraft into the warm... ok very warm atmosphere was great, we hired a truck from National Car Rental Curacao, which was not regretted with some of the roads that we took it down!
From the moment we arrived on the island everyone was very friendly, we received a very warm welcome from the security lady on the gate who was very helpful with directions to the casita, even though English was clearly not her first language! but it was substatially better than my Dutch or Papiamentu.
After about 20mins drive from the airport we arrived at the Casita to a very warm welcome from Mercedes, she took the time to show us around our property not missing out any detail, the casita was spotless, we could not fault it and there is a reason why....
We were lucky that next door which is the larger holiday rental was not booked for the two weeks we were there and Mercedes very kindly allowed us use of the grounds which once again were immaculate, the pool was superb and very welcome in the warm afternoons, the hot tub was very enjoyable in the evening with a glass of wine (Mercedes recommendation!) however our favourite spot in the grounds was sat udner the pergoda watching the sun go down in the early evening - smiling just thinking of it now!
The casita has everything you need for a holiday, a fridge freezer, microwave, gas bbq, and all the kitchen utensils that you could ever need. There was lots of books and cd's to enjoy and the best bit was the fact that you could open up all the doors and let the view take your breathe away from each angle! - the only issue with having the doors open is the local cats like to come and pay a visit!
The bed is extremely comfortable but the air conditioning is needed if your coming from a more milder climate! as the temperature doesnt appear to drop that much over night.
The casita is plenty big enough for two adults and a child or two couples, the sea on your door step is amazing however whilst we were there the sea was very rough and we didnt venture into, not sure if this was a time of the year thing or whether the sea is like that all year, however it didnt detract from our holiday, the estate which the casita is on is under development however it is not intrusive and when your sat on the patio.... you cant imagine anyone else near you for a few hundred miles!
I will continue in part 2

Fantastic family vacation

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 14-Apr-2012
  • Date of Stay: Mar 2012
We had the pleasure of staying at La Casita over our Easter holiday. The two bedroom, one bath apartment was one of the best vacation rentals we have ever stayed. The accommodations were more that comfortable...my son made the comment more than once that he wanted to move in permanently. The kitchen was well equipped, but we found ourselves using the outside grill just to enjoy the veranda. The bathroom was stocked with plenty of towels as well as other amenities such as shower products and lotions. The apartment was clean and very well maintained with beautiful wood floors, books about Curacao, and a fantastic selection of jazz CDs. The housekeeper came mid-week to straighten up the apartment, change linens, and clean the towels. We did have some minor trouble with the electric stove. After informing the owners they had an electrician come out - it was discovered it had just tripped the breaker. Problem solved....and fast! We snorkeled at a great reef right off the front of the property. This residence was just perfect for our family (2 kids- ages 10 yo and 8 yo) Our vacation to La Casita and to Curacao are unsurpassed. Thank you Mercedes (and Marsheline). We look forward to returning soon!
