About the property

THE MOST LUXURY VILLA IN THE BLUE BAY RESORT VILLAGE WITH THE BEST VIEW

The Blue Bay resort is a spectacular 420-acre resort community, right at one of the Caribbean's most dazzling beaches. With breathtaking seaside views, world class golf, extensive recreational facilities and a 24/7 manned security gate, Blue Bay offers a perfect holiday.

In the garden, you can see cats, iguanas, parrots, hummingbirds, tropical birds, frogs and lizards (Nothing dangerous though).

The villa is located 10mn by car to the airport and there is a free parking at a 2 mn walk from home. The beach and restaurants are about 5mn walk from home.

The villa has just been completely renovated in August 2017: everything has been repainted, we have invested in new design furniture, the lighting has been improved with color LEDs on the terrace, a new fitted kitchen has been installed with high-end household appliances and a table with 6 chairs was added inside to allow you to eat, use your computer or let your children draw or play.

The house enjoys an EXCEPTIONAL LOCATION, facing the golf course, at the end of a pedestrian path. Unlike other villas in the resort, the view is beautiful and unobstructed, no one passes in front of you to go to the beach and you will have no vis-à-vis nor neighbor above or below.

The villa consists of two large bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms including WC. The third bedroom is smaller and shares a bathroom. Additional restrooms are located near the entrance. All bedrooms have air-conditioning, fans, mosquito nets and closets. We have arranged a cosy area around the TV so you can enjoy watching a movie in your language on Netflix (free access provided), let your children watch cartoons, view a slideshow of the pictures you have taken during the day on our Apple TV, check the news from your country or watch your favorite team playing.

Through the large sliding doors you can extend your living-room to the outside and enjoy our beautiful large porch. The large dining table for up to 8 people is perfect to eat outside. You will also be able to enjoy the view sitting on our garden lounge where you will never feel too hot thanks to the ceiling fan and the special situation of our villa where there is always a little breeze. You can also choose to lie down on our sunbeds on the deck or to relax on the hammock. Overall it is the perfect outside living area to enjoy beautiful evenings in the Caribbean.

Besides, a VIP welcome will be reserved for you!

About Stephanie Masson

My husband & I live in Paris, France. We are both scuba-diving lovers & we love to dive all around the globe & Curaçao is an ideal destination to fulfill that passion!

Francois is anesthesiologist and likes to paint modern art, do sculpture, trekking and a little golf during his free time. I'm Stephanie : a while ago, I used to work in a start-up in the textile business worldwide. Now, I help my husband with its accountancy, sometimes work as a free-lance to create websites and I mainly raise our 2 kids. I love making new friends, traveling and organizing trips and events. I'm currently learning Italian & I love cooking, reading, walking, cycling, skiing and diving.

Stephanie Masson purchased this villa in 2013

Why Stephanie Masson chose Willemstad

We discovered Curaçao during a house exchange a few years ago and we fell in love with the place. We have bought this house in order to spend our holidays and part of our retirement there. We have never rented out the villa yet but we've already exchanged it several times. We're always very happy to make people discover our beautiful Caribbean paradise.

What makes this villa unique

- Our villa is very family friendly: this is the reason why we bought it because we spent the best holidays with our 2 little kids ever. A beautiful beach and pools with sun beds at a walking distance, many activities for children all around the island, a kids club to spend some free time, restaurants onsite to avoid cooking sometimes (with long-distance walkie talkies, you can even leave your children at home while you go to the restaurant if they are old enough to stay alone at home).

- tremendous & relaxing view over the golf course, its lake and flamingos

- perfect for lovers because the place is very romantic.

- perfect for a group of friends because there are many things to go : plenty of good restaurants, many live concerts, jazz festival every year in end of August

- diving paradise,

- golf onsite (plus another golf on the island to discover).

Curaçao is a guarantee for great holidays because:

- the temperature is always nice

- there is no hurricane season since Curacao is outside the hurricane belt

- it's safe contrary to many places around the globe nowadays unfortunately

- people are nice

Awesome Sauce Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 5 weeks at this villa. It is everything that is described in the overview and more. Very clean and comfortable. The view is great as it is right on the golf course and there are no other villas obstructing your view. The walk to the beach is 5 minutes or less. The surrounding beaches are fabulous. They are all unique in their own way. This villa is centrally located so that you can drive to the nearby supermarket or a 10 minute drive to Willemstad. I would definitely recommend this place for everyone of all ages.

Will definitely return soon.

Lovely villa & gorgeous grounds!!

  • 5 of 5

Stephanie's villa was our PERFECT vacation home! The verandah was where we spent every morning and evening enjoying the "wildlife" (many different birds, geckos, iguanas, and wild flamingos!). There were sooo many different flowers in bloom - I loved just walking the grounds and taking pics of all the different flowers. Not sure if it's always in full bloom but the first 2 weeks of February was AMAZING! The beds are comfy, villa fully stocked. Blue Bay had great snorkeling to the left as you enter water. Tons of different fish and calm waters. To the right was a variety of coral. Beach was great with many trees and palapas for shade. Restaurants onsite were decent food for the nights we didn't want to go into town (which is an easy 10-15 minute drive). My husband walked 3 minutes to golf driving range most mornings and hit a few buckets of balls ($6 for unlimited buckets and full set of clubs!). Truly a relaxing trip!

Owner's Response: Dear Sue, Many thanks for your so kind comment. We are glad you enjoyed your holidays and had such a relaxing time. Nature is really amazing in Curacao indeed, so peaceful! That's great that your husband could go to the driving range almost every day. I hope you'll have the opportunity to come back in the future. You'll be most welcome!

Brilliant for a family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Divi Divi. It is very spacious with a big verandah that has strong wooden fencing , which makes it perfect and secure for small kids. The beds were comfortable and the villa was extremely well equipped.

The location is very good, only 2 minutes to the swimming pool and 5 minutes to the beach.

The only downside is that it is a long distance to go from Blue Bay to a supermarket and you either have to take a taxi or hire a car to do that (although I managed to walk there and back with a small bag one day), but if you plan your shopping you can minimise car rental costs.

Owner's Response: Dear Andy and Nia, We have been very pleased to welcome you with your twin babies. Thank you for your nice comment. We are glad that you had a great time at home. Actually, it is much easier to rent a car if you want to eat at home to be able to go shopping because the way to the supermarket, even if it is only 3,7 km away, is not made for walkers and I suppose it was quite hot. But it seems that you are a sportive person, I am impressed! Hope to welcome you again in the future. Warm regards Stephanie

10 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just spend some wonderful days at this beautyful place. The Divi Divi villa of the blue bay resort is a great place for a relaxing vacation. The beach is one of the most beautyful ones of the island with a lot of shade by palm trees. It is also a perfect base for reaching interesting visiting points of Curacao - Willemstad is just 10min. by car eastwards and you are allready out of town to drive to the wilder western part of the island.

Steph is a wonderful host and a great communicator. Thanks a lot for everything, Steph!

Wonderful Christmas in Curacao

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful Christmas week in Curacao! Stephanie was very easy to communicate with and we could use a lot of her advice to make our stay comfortable. Stephanie’s villa is conveniently located next to a beautiful and equipped beach, very close to the restaurants and the capital Willemstad. Every day we could explore another beach, we experienced scuba diving and swimming with dolphins, enjoyed the sunset on the beach next to the villa. It was a great week!
