Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Boka Samí - Seaside villa Curaçao

Villa with 4 bedrooms for 8 persons, 20 minutes from Willemstad

The villa

The house is best described as an authentic and cosy residence. There are 4 bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a laundry. However, the true residence is outside. The terraces are one of a kind and one basically lives outside.

This holiday home is suitable for people who are looking for a cosy spot (not a place for tourism) at sea. The street is one of its kind in Curaçao. Over the past 30 years, many houses have been built and restored and so this became one of the finest 'typical´places to be on the island.

Details:

Cable television with more than 100 channels and two televisions in the house

Wireless internet in the whole house and garden

Air conditioning in the bedrooms

Washing machine available

Dishwasher, microwave and oven

Pots and pans, crockery, glassware, and so on (complete kitchen for the whole family)

Barbecue

Alarm system

Holiday home Redaweg Curaçao

We offer you this holiday home on one of the most beautiful spots of Curaçao. 7.748 km from Amsterdam and 3.349 km from Miami. Visitors are allowed to leave their own plate on the pole.

The villa is located on the 'quiet' side of Willemstad (no tourist centre). In 10 minutes you reach the city centre of Willemstad. At 5 minutes there's a big supermarket. And right before your doorstep (your own staircase to the Atlantic Ocean) you have one of the top diving spots (the 'Slangenbaai') of Curaçao. The villa lies on the rocks, right at sea. It has a terrace 'above the sea'. From your own terrace, you can use a staircase to go to the sea where you can snorkel and dive. 50m. next to the house you can reach the shore from a very small beach (a special dive location), this way it is easier to enter the sea with your diving equipment.

This holiday home is ideal for people who are looking for a cosy spot (not a place of tourism) at sea. The street is one of its kind on Curaçao. Over the past 30 years, many houses have been built and restored and so this became one of the finest 'typical´places to be on the island.

Could be a 5 star place but it is not

  • 3 of 5

First, I want to say that I am a senior reviewer with TripAdvisor, I don't enjoy writing a bad review. However, I want to inform travelers about the issues we had while staying here.

The location is good and the grounds are gorgeous, with a beautiful deck.

Check-in time is 5:00PM. The agent in Holland told us to email the housekeeper in advance to advise him that we were arriving early and wished to drop off our bags at 1:30PM. I emailed twice, texted twice and left a voicemail. He never responded. We arrived at 2:00PM and waited outside until 4:45PM when he arrived. He told us he never received any communication from us, which is not true. He let us in the house, which had not been cleaned from the previous guests! It was a mess. He said to come back in 2 hours and it would be cleaned. We didn't want to wait around as we didn't know our way around the island, especially after dark, so we booked a hotel for the night at our own expense.

I emailed the agent and told her to refund our money so we could stay somewhere else for the 3 week period. She said she was sorry that we were unhappy but did not mention a refund. The cleaning was not well done, My wife had to clean the toilets and the kitchen. There were other issues that the housekeeper said would be fixed for the next guests, he already knew about the problems. Why weren't they fixed for us?

Then, after a few days the air conditioners in 3 bedrooms broke. We had to use fans for most of our stay and we were very hot and uncomfortable. Fans helped at night but it was still quite hot.

Curacao houses don't have screens, so one must shut up the house at dusk and turn on air conditioning in the bedroom to keep out mosquitos.

The housekeeper was pleased to inform us that the air condtioners would be fixed for the next guests but not us. He also talked to the owner twice and told us that we would be compensated but we never heard a word from the owner.

The house itself has potential for being a lovely place, but it is dated and needs lots of repairs.

Perhaps the owners will read this review and update the house, especially the kitchen and plumbing.

Excellent Views

  • 4 of 5

I stayed here for a week with a group of friends. We all came to Curacao for a friend's wedding. We had between 4 and 7 people every night. We loved the views of the ocean from the back of the house. The garden and terrace were a really nice place to gather every morning and evening. We used the grill maybe 4 times throughout the week. The kitchen was very well stocked. We did a LOT of cooking throughout the week. The beds were decently comfortable and the air conditioning in the bedrooms worked well. We also appreciated having a washing machine and dryer available. The stairs to get right into the water were a nice touch.

The only downsides to the place were that there seemed to be a ventilation issue with one of the bathrooms and not all of the pilots in the stove would light without using a match.

Overall, the views were great and the place was an amazing value. I definitely recommend this place to families or groups of friends. There's also a diving place, "Curacao Divers" on the street but we didn't have time to use their services. You definitely need to rent a car if you're staying here. It's off the beaten path, but in a good way.

beautiful and quiet

  • 5 of 5

My vacation needet to be peacefull and quiet, and that's what is what I got. When we

opend the fences there was already a beautifull garden. Once we got inside there was a nice and warm home. The experience was by the water. You could almost say we lived outside. Not far away there were some really nice places to eat. It was a wonderfull vaction !

This villa lies in a small village close to Sint Michiel. The villa is situated directly at sea and you can use a staircase to go down to the beach and go for a swim, to snorkel or to dive. You can reach Willemstad by car within 15-20 minutes. A supermarket can be reached in 5-10 minutes by car. Thanks to the fact that the villa is somewhat remote, it is also a very quiet place.
