We enjoy the cold Steeler season that Pittsburgh, Pa. has to offer but after the season is over we cant wait to take some time off and escape to the sunny beaches of Curacao. Marazul Dive Resort offers the best of both worlds. Relaxed living or enjoying the cultural sights and sounds of Willemstad. There is always something new we haven't explored yet and interesting people to meet. We just wish our 2 Newfoundlands Bruce and Liese could come with us.
Gretta Beck purchased this townhome in 2012
Curacao is a mix of Dutch, American and Lt. American influences. Low crime rates, friendly people, affordable cost of living and no hurricane season for year round vacationing were important factors for us to choose Curacao as a home away from home. Besides the many snorkeling and diving opportunities, we enjoy learning about other cultures and meeting new people. . All of these things combined make us want to come to the island as often as time will allow
You can have experience as much adventure or relaxation as you desire. From lounging by the seaside pool, reading your favorite novel to the music and excitement of Carnival. Its up to you!
First off, let me thank you for such an amazingly hospitable location
you've set up there. The dishes, the linens, the spotless nature of how
clean the place was upon arrival all showed the pride you take in your
place in Marazul and I thank you for sharing that with us.
We ended up doing a couple of guided dives with Bas Hart (
http://www.bashartsdiving.com) and he was amazing. He picked us up right at
the resort promptly on time and had some amazing areas to dive at. I could
not recommend a better person to dive with on the island. We met him at
Playa Lagun and his rates were very competitive for the quality of diving
experience with him as a guide. I'd recommend him to anyone looking to dive
the more off-the-beaten-path dive sites.
As I keep thinking of more I'll be sure to send them off to you.
Again, thank you for the wonderful hospitality. Good times were had by all.
We had a wonderful holiday in westpunt and loved the house. The bedrooms were cozy, the kitchen was well equipped and the views were unbelievable. Surprisingly, some of the best snorkeling experienced was off the steps from Marazul. The experience was fabulous.
Thank you for letting us share your home.
Awesome place. Just as described. Gretta was great to work with. Property manager was great. Can't say enough good things. Thank you gretta Love your house as did my family and friends
From the deck of the pool, you can see the sea,
Beautiful sunsets, if there is some clouds, try tomorow,
Beautiful beaches on the neighborhood,
Make some bbq with fresh fish just been bought on playa Grandi or Lagun,
Tutles, fishes, fishes and more fishes just down stairs
Some mosquitoes (hey what did you expect, this is a tropical island),
Some jellyfish bites (but we didn't saw anyone of them)
This is a lovely rental -- well maintained, clean, and lots of amenities. Comfortable king beds are a big plus. You get a good night's sleep here. Owners are great to deal with, answer questions promptly, and the property manager is very friendly and checks in daily to make sure everything is working well.
Curacao is not a big island so everything is an easy drive. Driving here is simple, good roads with good signage. D&D car rentals - a locally owned rental company recommended by the owners - is great. No long hassles at the airport, just a guy who meets you on arrival, brings you to your car, papers signed and off you go with a map he provides along with directions to get groceries and get on your way to your destination.
This rental is about 40 minutes from Willemstad, and while we had heard that parking in Willemstad is tough to find, we had no problems finding parking in the Otrabanda harbour area both times we were there.
Curacao Actief's full day Natural Treasures tour is terrific, with guides who really love their jobs. It's a great day, and we're sure their other tours are just as fun.
Snorkeling is wonderful either off the stairs of this beautiful property, or at Playa Lagun, just a 5 -10 minute drive down the road. Thanks Gretta and Kevin for supplying snorkel gear with the townhome!
This is a terrific place, and we highly recommend it. It's one of the few places we've rented we would consider a repeat stay in the future.
Our family group was big enough that we rented two living spaces from this owner. Both homes were very clean and the a/c was much appreciated at night. Being right on the ocean was terrific both for the sight and the sounds. The nearby locations of great snorkeling beaches was great. The snorkeling equipment at the other house was more complete so you may have to rent from a dive shop if you stay here. We also hiked Mt Christoffel and visited some nearby landhuis's. The restaurants in the area are not to be missed but if you have a need for things to happen fast you will be frustrated. We adopted island time as our motto and enjoyed every minute of our three and half hour dinner at one place. The owners of the restaurants are very friendly.
The owner was very friendly. The facilities manager was outstanding. He checked every day with us to make sure we didn't need anything. But make sure you get directions for the washing machine on the property because he doesn't know how to run the machine and it isn't self-explanatory. There are other free washers at the resort to use.
We used this house as our base of operations for the western/northern part of the island. We moved down closer to the city about half way through our vacation. But Curacao is small enough that driving into the city is not a big deal. I recommend going to a grocery store closer to the city like Centrum. The selection is much better and the prices are much much better.
We would definitely come back.
My family had a wonderful week at this villa! The decor and grounds are beautiful! We love Marazul because it is private, gated, and relaxing. Diving is great from their ladder, there is a forest of coral pinnacles. We also liked diving at Playa Lagun beach 4 miles south. There we saw a seahorse and peacock flounder in shallow water.
For sightseeing, don't miss the beautiful Knipe Grande beach and the historic and colorful buildings in Punda (Willemstad). We will be back!
