Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Jan Thiel - Casa Vandernak

3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Stunning Sea Views

Located in the sought-after district of Jan Thiel, this beautiful ground floor apartment comes complete with spectacular sea views of the blue Caribbean. You will also be treated to a bird's eye view of some of the most gorgeous sunsets you will ever see. The property is part of the popular Boca Gentil Resort with its magnificent landscaping and 24-hour security.

This luxury suite features 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a large living room with a flat-screen TV and a DVD player. Also included is free high-speed wireless (Wi-Fi) internet.

The kitchen faces the terrace, and by opening the shutters you get a bar with stunning views of the sea, where you can see the local fishermen sailing by, or enjoy the many cruise ships that come along. The kitchen sports a spacious open layout and comes complete with all appliances, including a large fridge, oven, dishwasher, microwave, and washing machine.

The master bedroom features an en-suite bathroom equipped with two sinks, a shower and toilet. The master bedroom has twin box springs and a walk-in closet. The two other bedrooms open onto the hallway. In each bedroom there are two single box springs and these rooms share the second bathroom. As such the apartment can comfortably accommodate 6 guests. Of course, all bedrooms are also equipped with air conditioning.

On the spacious deck you'll find sunbeds and a large dining table, as well as a hammock where you can relax and enjoy your dream vacation. The deck is located higher than the road and is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping, giving you a great deal of privacy.

The apartment has a communal swimming pool which is only steps away. As such, since the pool is not directly in front of the apartment, you can enjoy a refreshing swim whenever you want, but not suffer the nuisance caused by other guests using the pool.

About Berge Alyanak

My wife Yohanna and I live in Toronto, Canada. We discovered Curacao a few years ago and fell in love with the place. We now have a beautiful property there that we try and visit whenever time permits. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

beauitful and breathtaking

  • 5 of 5

Berge and Yohanna's vaction home in Jan Thiel Curacao is absolutely perfect. It felt like home but only a lot nicer. There was everything you would need and more. the property managers were fantastic they helped us arrange taxi's and provided us with helpful tips on what to see and where to dine. We would absolutely recomment this property to friends and family.

The Zanzibar restaurant on the beach has delicious pizza like no other and their catch of the day was also yummy. In downtown Williamstad we had lunch at the plain cafe it was also one of our favourites.

Cant wait to go back.

Thank you

  • 5 of 5

Dear Berge and Yohanna, many thanks again for letting us experiance Curacao, we were 5 friends flying from different countries, who came and enjoyed Curacao. Boca Gentil in Jan Thiel is best place to be. Supermarket is close by and if you feel like going to restaurant is only few min away. House is also very good equiped and we enjoyed morning coffee on veranda with lovely birds. We enjoyed also the nice sunsets from the veranda and cool down in nearby pool. We would surely be back again!!!

Excellent stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed here for a week and it was incredible. The views are breathtaking from the front deck where we enjoyed our morning coffee each day. The pool is literally steps from the deck, with the beautiful beaches only a short walk away. Berge (owner) provided all the information we needed to have a terrific, stress-free stay. The manager was waiting for us when we arrived and gave us a full orientation to the unit and the area. I would definitely return here again!

Beautiful condo

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful condo on a beautiful island. The pool is literally steps away, and if you prefer sand there are two infinity pools with sandy surrondings just a short walk at Papagayo.

Fabulous vacation stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place, beautiful location and overall an Amazing stay. Rental staff (manon) and owner, Berge, were all incredibly helpful (eg., we got lost arriving very late at night trying to initially find the place- manon talked us through getting there by phone and we were so grateful for her help with two tired young kids in the back seat!). The place itself is exactly as pictured. Clean, spacious, fully stocked, artfully decorated. Every morning we sat out in front deck and looked at the gorgeous view. Walking distance to resort area with beach access and more pools, bars etc. totally kid friendly and our family thoroughly enjoyed having fun in the unit pool and then taking a stroll to the beach and indulging in infinity and other pools. Grocery store just nearby- so convenient. We are definitely looking forward to another curaçao vacation and in this unit in particular again!

Great location, views and price!

  • 4 of 5

Great location, fabulous views! We drove all over Curaçao and this is the place to stay! Close to shops, restaurants and nice beaches. My two sisters, youngest daughter and best friend accompanied me to celebrate my 60th birthday. It was probably all of our favorite vacation ever. Snorkeling on the southwest side, eating, drinking, shopping and laughing - a girls dream trip!

Mosquitoes were not nice, but the owner has citronella candles on the deck. Need new bed pillows, but all in all, a great place! We'll definitely be back!

Whether you want to relax in a quiet, peaceful oasis at home, or enjoy the many day-time activities and vibrant night-life offered by Curacao, everything is a short walk or drive away. If you want to go to the beach then the new beaches of Jan Thiel, including those of Papagayo or the beach at Zanzibar, are all within a few minutes walking distance, at the western end of this gated community. There you will also find numerous restaurants, two scuba diving centers and various shops. Nearby activities include windsurfing, horseback riding, jet ski and ATV rentals, and biking. The quaint downtown area of Willemstad, with its historic forts, sidewalk cafes and floating markets, is only a 15 minute drive away.

There is a full, well-equipped gym, and sauna, within a few minutes' walk (usage charges are extra).

It is only a 30 minute drive from the airport to the apartment. Here is the link for the driving directions: http://goo.gl/maps/VXLj6 (you may have to copy and paste this link into your browser).

As of December 2012, for your shopping needs, a new Albert Heijn supermarket has opened within a mere 5-minute walking distance.

There is also a dedicated parking spot available for guests of the apartment.
