Very Nice Villa, not a typical rental
I found the Flamingo Villa by chance while surfing for a place in Curacao. The view and pool were enough to make me want to rent it. I was further intrigued by the lay out and two-floor design. The Villa is absolutely gorgeous.
I rented the Villa for a special Birthday celebration for 3 close friends. We planned to have 4 couples and rented both floors to insure privacy. Only 5 of us made the trip, but we kept both floors. This was a great idea. While there is plenty of room for 10-14 people, it was especially nice to have plenty of room for the 5 of us.
The interior design of the Villa is remarkable. It is obvious that great care was taken in the planning and design. The Villa feels immediately like home and is very comfortable. The owners furnished the home with top quality furnishings and did not use any "cheap rental" stuff.
The kitchen has particularly nice dishes, cookware, and appliances. Everything was very nice, clean, and modern. We were able to prepare excellent meals and enjoy time in the Villa. The Villa also has great surround sound and flatscreen tv, however, we failed to watch a single minute of tv as the pool and deck area demanded all the leisure time.
The pool and hammocks are the best! Rock gently in the hammock or float on the supplied pool tools while gazing at Venezuela which sits a mere 40 miles away.
If you need ANYTHING, Don from the local store will run it up to the villa. Just give him a call from the cordless house phone. The beds had luxurious linens and mattresses that compare to the Sheraton "Sweet Sleeper" dream beds. The bathrooms feature high-end fixtures and the master shower has a 2-head shower with room for as many as you care to share a shower with!
Downside: It is hard to leave the Villa to check out any of the beautiful beaches. We had such a nice feeling at the Villa that we simple enjoyed hanging out at "Home."
You will not regret renting this Villa. The owners are so accommodating and hospitable. Coral Estates, where the Villa is located, is a nice gated community with a great Dive outfit on site. The dive site at Coral Estates is one of the best on the island.
Forget the resorts or hotels. Rent the Hi Ace Toyota van from the airport and stay at the Villa. Swing by the Cost-U-Less and buy all the Polar beer the van can carry and enjoy the best private home on Curacao.
...if you can't tell, I loved this place!
