About Jacqueline Capriles

I have always loved visiting the Island of Curacao. It has become my favorite place in the world. My parents are originally from Curacao and I visit here often. So when an opportunity came along for me to purchase a home on the famous Handelskade waterfront, I jumped at the opportunity to be part of this World Unesco Heritage site.

Jacqueline Capriles purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Jacqueline Capriles chose Curacao

What I love about this property is that it is in the center of town overlooking the Santa Ana Bay. I enjoy the water, but not big on soaking in the sun all day. I like the country, but I'm more of a city person and rather be around people and a lively environment, yet have my privacy at the same time. This property gives me all this and more.

What makes this apartment unique

Here I am so close to everything. I can walk to stores, cafes, take in a movie at the theater, watch the ships sail from my balcony, go to the museum, restaurants, check out the live bands on the waterfront or even go clubbing at night and not have to drive anywhere.

Great Stay

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was clean and comfortable and the views of the harbor were amazing. I arrived the night before my friend and the property manager was kind and patient with a tired woman getting in late and travelling alone, she helped me get my luggage to the apartment and showed me where to park the car. One of the bedroom air conditioners gave out and they were quick to respond and get a repairman to the apartment. When he couldn't fix it that day, Jacqueline moved us to her other apartment next door which was also very nice.

Town & Country package was Awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED-5 STARS!!

Town & Country package was Awesome! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED-5 STARS!!
  • 5 out of 5
We chose the town and country package for our stay in Curacao this time and now believe this is the only way to go!! Both homes were clean, well-stocked and easily located. Each property manager is extremely helpful and truly interested making our stay the best we’ve ever had!
Where do I begin? First, We stayed in the historical city of Willemstad. The 2 bedroom waterfront apartment was in the perfect location for shopping, casino, dining and listening to live music. We enjoyed a glass of wine while watching from our balcony, the Queen Emma Pontoon bridge open and tugs guide the large ships in and out of the harbor. We rented a car but no worries! The parking garage was free and easy to locate. The views of the city were just wonderful from the Riff Fort Diner.
Next it was a home on the northern side of the island in Westpunt. Again, the directions were simple and we found Marazul Dive Resort clean safe and beautifully landscaped. Our 3 bedroom home there was completely air conditioned and also well stocked with anything you might need including Snorkel gear!! We do not dive but the resort does have a dive shop on site for those who do. Our favorite part of MDR was the beautiful beaches a stone’s throw away- collecting sea glass- cliff jumping and just lying at the pool in the Caribbean sun!
Both owners were extremely easy to work with and very prompt on their replies to questions. We will most definitely stay with Jacqueline and the Becks again!! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS PACKAGE!

Excellent!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed in the Comfort Apartment from 12/30-01/01. It was excellent! Very clean, easy to locate, and incredibly convenient to everything in downtown Willemstad. The property manager was very nice, responsive, and trustworthy. If we go back to Willemstad, there is no doubt we will try to stay here. 5 Stars!

The handelskade waterfront nettled above the santa ana bay. This area is unique and in the heart of the town. Here you’ll find open markets, restaurants, tourist attractions, night life and other establishments all within walking distance.

Here are a few places we recommend to sight see.

Punda is the main shopping area of willemstad. The pedestrian-only streets create a picturesque atmosphere with many shops conveniently located in one area.

The queen emma bridge is a floating pontoon bridge, which swings perpendicular across the harbor and opens and closes so ships can pass through. This bridge has been nominated for the 8th wonder of the world.

The queen juliana bridge is a 1,625-foot-long bridge and stands 200 feet above the water. It's the highest bridge in the Caribbean and affords breathtaking views of the city, day and night.

Around the corner from our location is where you’ll find the floating markets, boats from venezuela and Colombia bring in a colorful smorgasbord of fruits, vegetables and the day’s fresh catch.

Next to the venezuelan floating fruit market, you can book a motor cruise eastwards on the insulinde with captain phil and his crew. He’ll take you on a 3-hour cruise along the coast where you can snorkel over the famous sunken tugboat wreck lying in 14 feet (4m) water depth. This wreck is curacao's finest snorkel attraction.

The curaçao maritime museum takes visitors on a discovery tour of more then 500 years of maritime history of curaçao.

The kura hulanda museum boasts a size-able collection of african art – one of the largest in the caribbean.

The mikve israel-emanuel synagogue, is the oldest synagogue still in use in the new world. There is a jewish historical museum on the property, occupying two buildings that date to 1728. You'll find artifacts like a torah scroll, brought to the island by the first jewish settlers, and hand-wrought, centuries-old silver items once used in religious ceremonies.
