Charming oceanfront home with private swimming/dock

Bedrooms 2
Space 1,500 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 5 nights


About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6 (4 comfortably plus 2 in Master Bedroom)

Charming oceanfront beach house, with your own private deck with ocean access, located on .3 acre 'walled in' tropical garden with security gate. Spectacular ocean views with breathtaking sunsets in front of your porch. Open living room, large eat-in fully equipped kitchen with full set of pots & pans, seats 6, large master bedroom with air conditioning, king size bed plus luxury sleeper sofa. Additional bedroom, 2 twin size beds, with spectacular ocean view, sleeps 2, with air conditioning and full bathroom with access from the garden also. Outdoor shower available. The front porch seats 6 and is commonly used used as dining room. House has telephone, Internet service and cable TV.

The property is located in a small local fisherman's village, about 20 minutes drive from the center of Willemstad and about 20 minutes from the International airport Hato.

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!

Casa Marise

  • 5 of 5

I wanted to send you some pics and let you know what a wonderful time we had in Curacao. You truly have a beautiful villa and we just can't believe how we lucked out by finding it. I can honestly say if you keep your prices the way they are you will have no problem renting it out. I have already referred a few people to your website who were looking for an out of the way place to dive. We much prefer an island like Curacao to an island like Aruba. I can't stand the resort like atmosphere of such places and just relish in places like Curacao that are spectacularly beautiful and very rich with history. It was great because it was a bit like going to Holland with all the dutch culture! We just loved it.

I have attached pictures that you are welcome to use on your website. We could not believe the sunsets off the porch...they were so beautiful! I love to cook so we spent the majority of the time cooking at night and eating on the porch. We were sure no restaurant could beat the view we had at the house! I know you asked me about any suggestions we had and the only thing I can think of is that a portable fan around the kitchen might off set the heat. However, I realize we were there during the hottest month as Ron told us.

We just loved it and would love to return again! Thanks so much for all the hospitality and for sharing your home with us. We did our best to take care of it and treat it as if it were our own....(I love the white brick with the thick dark wood...just gorgeous!)

Thanks again and take care,

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Casa Marise is absolutely amazing! The rustic home on the edge of the Caribbean, who could ask for more! The moment we booked the owner stayed in contact and answered all questions in a timely manner, plus called us upon arrival to welcome us! Sonja who helps with getting you acclimated to surroundings and answers any questions or concerns you may have! Selma the local cook also was on time with delivering our dinner and the food was outstanding! This little piece of heaven on the Caribbean is exactly what we needed! Definitely hope to go back in the future! Thanks to all who made our stay so welcoming and inviting!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Could not have asked for a better place to stay. The house is beautiful, with a nice breeze blowing through with all the large windows open. The pictures really don’t do it justice.

Great snorkeling and tons of fish right off the back dock. We were visited daily by several iguanas who really love mango and papaya FYI. A multitude of bird species would also come around. The house is very conveniently located with a very short drive to the grocery, and within 20 minutes of Willemstad.

Will definitely stay here again..

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 2 week stay at Casa Marise. We are from Canada so to get away while it is -40 at home was wonderful and worth the price, our exchange rate is terrible at the moment but we would rebook in a heartbeat.

The house is secured with a gated entry and the entire place feels very safe and private.

Great snorkeling right off the dock, perfect sunsets, with a steady stream of ships passing by. There are binoculars in a case on the desk that came in handy.

We cooked almost every dinner in the house. No restaurant could beat the view. And the nearby grocery store has a wide selection of products.

The large kitchen is very well appointed, the only thing I missed was a good chef’s knife, the blades in the knife block set were all badly damaged and beyond the point of sharpening/repair.

There are plenty of bath and beach towels in the house and the bed in the master bedroom was great.

We did have an unfortunate incident when we came home one evening and the master bathroom, bedroom and entire living room was flooded with over an inch of water. The waterline under the bathroom sink had burst and had likely been running for a few hours. We swept water out of the house with brooms and towels. We couldn’t reach the property manager but she was quick to contact us in the morning and send a repair man. Since the house is tiled everything dried quickly.

We had been watching our water usage but after the burst pipe we were over. The property manager didn’t even question it which we both appreciated. Communication with the homeowner and property manager was great.

We had friends who stayed on the opposite side of Willemstad during our stay, it did take over half an hour to get there as rush hour is a real thing on the island, we loved coming back to our quiet community.

We went to a few different beaches; Porto Mari, Kokomo beach and Cas Abou. Cas Abou was definitely our favorite; it’s a beautiful white sand beach that doesn’t require water shoes, the water is incredibly clear and we saw tons of fish and even an octopus.

The coolers were very handy to bring to the beach.

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home. We look forward to visiting again one day.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We just got home from Casa Marie the end of January 2016. This time it wasn't so hard coming home because we have our reservation secured for the month of January next year. The first time we were there was 3-28-09. We loved the home and the location so much but were not sure we could afford to go back. We are now retired and we will be back every January because it feels so much like home. Marise is a wonderful owner and friend. Any problems that may occur are handled immediately. There is nothing better than sitting on the patio watching cruise ships, tankers, tug boats, etc. unless it's snorkeling in our own "fish bowl" off our own dock in front of the house. The parrot fish, tangs, sergeant majors, etc. are wonderful. There is a cove in the rock in front of the house that is terrific to swim through. The assortment of birds, lizards and iguanas on the property are something else. We have been so fortunate to have found Casa Marise.
