beautiful condo, excellent location
I have only positive things to say about this condo at The Strand. Petra responded to all our inquiries in a very timely manner (which wasn't always the case with other places we contacted; we'd wait for days or longer for a response). She met us at the condo upon our arrival to show us around, and had a nice surprise of juice, rolls and wine as a welcome gift. The condo is very clean and modern, and the location is great. The condo has everything you need in the kitchen for preparing meals at home, which we did for breakfast and for dinner twice. We absolutely loved sitting out on the beach or patio morning and evening. Many times, we had the beach and water all to ourselves. The condo has 2 TVs, but we didn't ever use them - we'd rather stare at the sea. There are several restaurants within easy walking distance (we tried Fishalicious, Seasons and Ginger --all very good; close by are also Rozendaels, Batavia, Mundo Bizarro and Miles at Avila). The city is a bit of a further walk, but we enjoyed our walk and all the colorful buildings along the way. If you go in the opposite direction, you're just 2 miles from the Seaquarium, shops, restaurants, etc. There is a market and gas station just 1/2 mile away. I went running every morning (both into Willemstad as well as in the other direction to the Seaquarium and back) and always felt safe. We also walked into Willemstad at night and had no issues. We had a car all week, so it was nice to have a reserved spot within the gates at The Strand. We made 2 day trips out to Westpunt & Christoffel/Shete Boka, which is about a 40 minute drive. I would definitely recommend The Strand as a wonderful place to stay while in Curacao.
