CARIBBEAN SEA FRONT APARTMENT

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Curacao

Apartment (2 stories), 1 Bedroom, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3)

The apartment located 30 feet from the sea within a small gated resort is situated in Westpunt, a tiny village at the west side of Curacao. From the apartment you have an uninterrupted view on the deep blue and crystal clear ocean where you may spot dolphins jumping out of the sea. For swimming, snorkeling or diving: just walk down the stairs from the resort to the sea or otherwise go to one of the many other nearby beaches. Great mountain biking and hiking on the nearby wild north side of the island and at the Boca Tabla Nature Preserve. The Mt. Christoffel National Park and the Savonet museum are at a 15 minutes car drive away.

Westpunt is the ideal spot for an exiting or quiet getaway from daily life.

About Rita and Winfried Merkies

Owners are a local couple living over 35 years on the island.

Rita and Winfried Merkies purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Rita and Winfried Merkies chose Curacao

Growing up as a child we always rented vacations home during our school holidays here, now we had the chance to buy one ourselves.

What makes this apartment unique

The fact that we can walk from our unit to the stairs to the ocean almost directly in front of our unit and go for a swim, snorkle or dive.

winter getaway

  • 4 out of 5
We enjoyed our stay at Westpunt. The unit was as described and the view from the patio and upper balcony was beautiful. We spent many hours sitting on the patio enjoying the colorful birds and iguanas. Late afternoons the sunset from the deck is beautiful. Even though the days got hot, with the front and back windows open there was always a breeze so we did not use the air conditioner at all during our stay. There are mosquitos and night and they do seem to get through the screens.

The unit was large enough for my husband, our adult son and myself for our two week stay. The futon is abit short if you are a tall person and could be uncomfortable for an older person.

The unit could use a few more kitchen items such as small cutting knife and a few more utensils but we were able to manage with the items provided. As well, the screen door to the upstairs balcony was difficult to open and close and hard to keep on the track.

The ocean in front of the unit was wonderful for swimming and snorkelling-warm and very clear. You can stand on the cliff and can see the fish and marine life below. The snorkelling throughout the island is very good and it is easy to go to several beaches in a day. We found the area to be great for relaxing and the pool was a welcome relief during the late day heat.

The complex manager stopped by on most days to ensure everything was OK and dealing with the owners was always positive and they responded quickly to any questions we had. They also contacted us by e-mail while we were there to ensure all was well and they were very accommodating with anything we requested.

If you are looking for low key relaxation this is the area for you-but having a car is a must so you can explore the island.

Thanks Wilfred and Rita

Our March 2014 Get-a-way!

  • 4 out of 5
The location is very private, safe, and relaxing. The views and sunsets are spectacular.
Everyone was very friendly and helpful. The flat screen tv was very nice but the furniture was not very comfortable. We enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching all the beautiful birds and humming birds. At night, it was delightful to look at the stars at night right from our bed and to listen to the breezes. The ocean was spectacular and we enjoyed the it as well as the pool. It was a great vacation for us.

Great vacation spot

  • 5 out of 5
We would recommend this lovely condo to anyone spending some time in Curacao. The grounds, pool, and buildings are well maintained and it is in a fantastic location. It is 40 minutes from town, and a very quick drive to many of the popular beaches and dive sites. Set on a cliff, the unit is faces the ocean with great views of the bay from both the upper and lower balconies. The pool is just to the left of the unit and there are also stairs down to the sea if you want to swim in the ocean. There is an outdoor shower and dunk tank for diving gear. The condo is well appointed, clean and nicely decorated. There are plenty of towels and the hot water in the shower is very reliable (do not turn the taps on full!). There is lots of space in the living area, two bathrooms and two airconditioners. We only used the aircon at night, did not really need it during the day due to nice breezes and tiled floors. Outside there are tables and chairs for relaxing, and a charcoal barbeque for cooking. Wi-fi is reliable and the TV has many channels to choose from. There is plentiful parking in a secured area. We received very detailed instructions from the owners for our arrival and all went smoothly. The site manager is available most days and is very helpful in answering any questions you may have about the unit, or the area in general. Thanks to Winfried and Rita for allowing us to enjoy this lovely spot.

Great getaway spot

  • 5 out of 5
Great property in the Marazul Dive Resort. Right next to the pool and outdoor shower that overlooks the beach, which is super convenient when you want to take a dip. The ocean is steps away as well. Awesome views and we loved cooking on the BBQ grill while gazing at the sunset. Resort is peaceful and convenient to many great beaches and snorkeling/dive spots. Can't recommend it enough.

Relaxing, beautiful and perfect. Location cannot be beat!

  • 5 out of 5
Everything about this spot is perfect.
The location - great beaches, great restaurants, great adventures - either right outside the door or just a moments drive away.
The room - clean, plenty of space, and all the cookware you would need. Free wifi!

Will def do it again if we find ourselves in Curacao again.

Loved this place! The view from the upper balcony was awesome, the amenities were excellent, and it was so much better than dealing with a hotel. The property manager was also extremely helpful, and the owner stopped by one afternoon to ask if we needed anything. Also very convenient to the excellent restaurant at Playa Forti.

The apartment is located in the western part of the island; the area is rural and quiet with many possibilities for diving, snorkeling, swimming, (mountain) biking and walking. There is a good dive school in Westpunt and a tank depot in our resort should you want to dive with them.

The national park Christoffel can be reached within a 20 minute drive from Westpunt for sight seeing, bird watching or climbing mount Christoffel for a beautiful view over the island. Landhuis (Mansion) Savonet is inside the park and is a museum that is worthwhile a visit. The north coast where the waves are breaking on the rocks can be reached within 10 minutes.

Dining can be enjoyed at Kura Holanda Lodge, Misjhe, El Sobrino, Sol foods or Jaanchi. At Westpunt on Sundays you can enjoy a local lunch at the Fishermen's bay of Westpunt or at Shete Boca which can be reached within 10 minutes by car.
