About Sharon and Pierre Alberts

Originally from the Netherlands, we have lived with our 2 children (11 and 15) for 8 years on Curacao and still love the island and our home. As we moved to the USA, we decided to keep our home and rent it out and let other people experience the same love for Dushi Korsou (sweet Curacao) and our home as we did.

Sharon and Pierre Alberts purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sharon and Pierre Alberts chose Willemstad

Our villa at Jan Sofat offers you all you need to unwind and have a home base from where you can explore the island. The house offers a peaceful day at the swimming pool with a lounge area as well as a playhouse for the kids.

Unwinding has never been easier with a masseusse or a pedicure available on the day you want them.

Don't feel like cooking? Just let us know as we can arrange a complete dinner for you.

This home offers everything the entire family needs. Privacy as well as entertainment.

For a nice sea adventure try the boat trips that are offered to Klein Curacao and other nice places.. The point of departure is just at the end of the street. Snorkeling at a sunken tugboat and all the beautiful fishes and corals are not more then 5 minutes from our home at the Caracasbay.

Our home is conviently located, away from the crowded tourist areas but near enough to benefit from the touristic restaurants, beaches and nightlife.

What makes this villa unique

Every sunset is a special one. Overlooking the sea and Spanish water the sky burst open with all kinds of shades from violet to pink and blue. The evenings present themselves as cooler but there is no need to get indoors as it always stays warm, just let the breeze of the tropic winds cool you off. If you do like to escape the warm weather, EVERY room in the house has Airconditioning!!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Sharon,

Your house was beautiful!! Especially the view from our bedroom and porch was amazing! We just loved to have dinner and watch the boats sail by. Super romantic. Our kids really enjoyed the pool and the playhouse so much that we sometimes forgot to go to the beach ;-). We will be back for sure! thanks for the great holiday and the super memories.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at this place for two weeks. It was amazing. The house is massive and beautiful. So many levels and different areas that it was ideal for a group of 7. The location cannot be beat. It is in a gated community in one of the nicest parts of the island. The pool is fantastic as is the large up to date kitchen. We cooked some great meals at the house using all the appliances provided and the bbq. Some great restaurants and stores are a mere 5 minute drive, as is the beach. And there are so many beaches to visit. Pierre was wonderful in assisting us before we arrived and Just Drive gave us a great deal on two rental cars. We have been to many islands over the years and really fell in love with Curaçao. So much so that we looked at buying our own house there. We would highly recommend this place, it is one of the best houses on the island. We will be back again for sure.

Such a wonderful Vacation House!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with the house and all accommodations as well as with our contact, the house manager. She was friendly and helpful and definitely added to our overall satisfaction. Our 3 year old delighted in the on site playground and pool area while his grandparents enjoyed the privacy of the apartment downstairs. Highly recommend for large families or group of friends and would love to book again in the future. They were super flexible and let us stay another night when our flight got cancelled. All 8 of us absolutely LOVED our stay.

Excellent way to celebrate my 40th birthday with friends and family!

  • 5 of 5

What you see is what you get. The online pictures are a perfect representation of this beautiful home! Early morning & late night swims in our private pool were my favorite. Everything you need is here so ask lots of questions. I was bummed to learn that there was an iron/board and Bluetooth access to the amazing sound system during my check-out! Pierre was responsive to all of my questions and extremely helpful throughout my planning process.

Beautiful Home, Breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This spacious home well served our large family needs. The view alone surpasses the five star rating. The house was supplied with everything we needed. Franca and Mario were exceptional in response time to those few incidentals the arose during our 2 week stay. A job well done!

Summer vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

I am happy that we chose this house to stay in while in Curacao. It was very spacious and felt like a home away from home for 3 adults and 2 children. The pool was icing on the cake and there were plenty inflatable pool toys for the kids and adults to enjoy. There were also toys for the beach. All you really need to bring is clothes, toiletries, and sunblock (maybe a few other things). Loved the number of bathrooms, no one waiting, and everything was clean. Although there is no clothes dryer, everything was provided for hanging your clothes on the line to dry which i actually really liked, it took very little time for our clothes to dry during the day. When you opened the doors and windows an amazing breeze flowed through the house that just allowed for maximum relaxation.

This was a wonderful and memorable experience that I would do again.
