As you are in the center of Sint Michiel, you will find some of the best scuba dive schools on the island, within walking distance. The founder of one of these scuba schools worked with Jacques Cousteau, the famous French marine biologist.
For scuba diving this is the place to be. Guided tours, night dives and rental of equipment are available at our neighbors dive shops. If you prefer your own equipment and your own schedule, you can make dives from your private dock. Discover the ocean life at night, night dives are amazing! Do not be surprised to meet the sea turtles and the seahorses!
Dolphin watching: If you are lucky you can watch the dolphins passing by within a few hundred feet from your breakfast table. If you are one of the brave ones, you may decide to jump into the water and swim with them. We have had the pleasure to experience this many times.
Several nice restaurants are in the neighborhood. Public transport is available however, we suggest to provide your own transport. Sint Michiel itself is an old fisherman's place and still active as such. It is located outside the tourist areas. If you like fresh sea food just check the catch of the day at the port when the fishermen return. Further, you can visit the remains of an old Dutch defense post near the harbor.
Casa Marise is very relaxed, and very traditional. For visitors who like their privacy and like a holiday in an extra-ordinary place, this is place to be.
Caribbean living at its best!: This is one of the few private properties on Curacao which is located directly on the Caribbean Sea, with your own private dock and direct access to the water. The property is 'walled in' with a remote electrical gate and private parking for one car on the property's parking lot.
For lazy days you can request a full home cooked meal which will be prepared by Selma and delivered at Casa Marise at the time you indicate, for a min fee. Arrangements can be made locally, as many days as you desire, or in advance for the day of arrival.
The best housekeeper on the island will meet you upon arrival at the property and will provide you with all details about your 'home away from home' and about the many points of interest of Curacao. If you arrive on the last AA flight, we suggest to arrange a taxi in advance as all car rentals will be closing at 23.00 hrs. We will be pleased to assist you arranging Big Mike, who is familiar with the location of Casa Marise.
We like to welcome you to this paradise: Bonbini!
