About the property

5 bedroom villa at the Caribbean sea

Video of Villa:

This holiday home is located at one of the most beautiful spots in Curaçao and is the ideal place for people who are looking for a cosy and quiet spot at the sea.

The house is best described as a new constructed house with a luxury tropical style and a cosy atmosphere.

Folding doors integrate the interior & exterior of the villa seamlessly to provide indoor/outdoor living.

There are five bedrooms, each sleeps two, two full bathrooms and one separate toilet, a living room, a kitchen and a first floor. The ground floor can be separated into two apartments, ideal for two families who want to have their privacy.

However, the home is built in such a way, that the central place is at the terrace, overlooking the deep blue Caribbean sea.

The street is one of its kind in Curaçao. Over the past 30 years, many houses have been built and restored and so this became one of the finest 'typical' places to be on the island.

About Petra Spelter

We are a European family with 3 kids and love inviting even more family and sharing with friends our vacation in our magic Caribbean home. Purchasing this home we were not looking for a vacation-rental-place, but for a home that makes us feel at home. We are active divers and also love to snorkel. We looked a long time for a home with direct sea access and diving facilities close. We are very family minded and were looking for a home that not only had enough space for ourselves, but also has the opportunity to invite additional family and friends. We were looking for a European-Style and European-Quality construction near the sea. Your contact, Petra, is a very nice Dutch host who not only knows Curaçao for years, but is always available during your stay just in case you need help and orientation, starting from details concerning the home up to recommendation and organizing a private dinner with a chef on the beautiful terrace towards the sea of this home. The combination of this home and Petra makes every stay a perfect moment to relax.

Petra Spelter purchased this villa in 2012

Why Petra Spelter chose Boka Samí

Our family loves the Caribbean, loves the sea in all its versions from enjoying a perfect sunset view up to snorkeling and diving. We are a family with kids and love being at openly built places enjoying tropical weather and facilities. Our family loves sharing and inviting friends and spend quality time together. We felt in love with Curaçao; it has the best of both worlds, Caribbean with a European/Dutch flavor. The beautiful, warm, friendly people inspired us to make this place our home. We love to be integrated within a regular neighborhood and local lifestyle rather than staying at a resort. Therefore the area of Boka Sami (nick named the “gold coast” by its neighbours) was our favorite place. Basically an old fashioned fisherman-village still within the city of Willemstad, close to supermarkets, restaurants, etc.. but with its own relaxed, not resort like local mentality and divers facilities just right next door.

We found this unique oceanfront villa with its breathtaking panoramic and its great story in 2012. A Dutch couple bought in 2009 this beautiful place and built a completely new home for themselves in order to live for the next 20 years and retire at this magic spot. They lived and enjoyed the place until they had to leave the island unexpectedly in 2012 for personal reasons. It was not just the quality of construction, but also the way of how the house was built to live near the sea with a terrace above it, that attracted us. The peaceful and relaxing spirit of the home itself is amazing. We made this home ourselves, overtook a place where this couple enjoyed living during years and we try to keep up the spirit of a real home, rather than a vacation rental place, since we spend a lot of time in this place ourselves each year.

This home is close to the best beaches, close to Willemstad, not in a resort but in a local neighborhood, is perfect for people who love the sea, love diving and snorkeling and it is made to enjoy with kids and/or bigger groups

What makes this villa unique

Our Home is not the typical vacation rental. It used to be a primary home for a Dutch couple who built this place from scratch, in order to live at this home and invite family and friends over from Europe to stay. Together with your host Petra we keep the spirit of a primary ocean front home with direct access to the sea alive. The location of the home is very unique; anyone visiting the home just falls in love with it – it is a quiet real local neighborhood and not a resort. The views of the ocean are breathtaking at all times of the year. Star-filled nights or a full moon shining across the ocean. Even from the kitchen window you can see dolphins swim by. Go midnight snorkeling from your own private stairs to the sea or just sit at the magic table of the terrace enjoying the sun and its incredible sunsets. This terrace table-place is the place we like best of this home – sharing, cooking, having a nice wine or sundowner or even enjoying a private dinner with you own private chef organized by Petra.

Amazing Waterfront Villa

  • 5 of 5

My husband, adult son, his girlfriend and I just returned from 10 wonderful days at this beautiful house. The villa is spacious with a very large kitchen and living area with windows that open to create a seamless indoor outdoor living area. The outdoor seating is plentiful and comfortable. But what really makes this house special is the waterfront location. We swam every day in warm, clear water. When we weren't swimming, we watched boats as well as dolphins swim by. Three out of the ten days we did not leave the villa because we were so content. The location was perfect, there is a large food store a few miles away, the Westpunt beaches are 20-30 minutes away and downtown Willemsted is a 15 minute drive. Petra, the location manager, was prompt in returning my numerous emails before the trip and was there with a smile to greet us upon arrival. We loved our stay and hope to return!

As soon as we walked through the entrance gate, we were overwhelmed by the view!

  • 5 of 5

The house and view was so fabulous that even at the end of each spectacular beach & adventure day, we were excited to get back to the house to continue swimming, relaxing and having a cocktail with the sunset! Swimming off of the house was easy and refreshing. Even our 6 year old niece navigated it well....toddlers would need to be watched though. The house was very comfortable for two families to share and the kitchen was outfitted with all we needed to make cooking at home easy. Our teens loved that there was wifi! We would not hesitate to recommend this rental and can not wait to return.

Beautiful scenery set in the perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a property outside the country, Petra made it easy and answered all of our questions regarding the villa and the local area. The house is central, located in a quiet area. Perfect for people who want to rent a car and explore the island. We travelled the entire island in seven days. We snorkeled at every beach we went to but enjoyed swimming and snorkeling at the villa just as well. We saw dolphins swim by one morning. Plenty of colourful fish, crabs, local birds and pelicans. There is plenty of seating, hammocks, loungers and tables to eat and sit outdoors. You can see the cruiseships leave the island at night. The house is large and has plenty of modern amenities. The decor is beautiful, the pictures, art work and statues reflect the local culture. The house is clean and has all the dishware necessary to prepare your own meals. We had plenty of linen and towels for our group. There are a lot of restaurants, bars and markets nearby. We are planning on returning next year again! Thank you Petra for everything!

A very special place on earth

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure to stay for a week in this property, we were a group of five people and the house felt huge. The kitchen is equipped with all the toys that a cook might need, the rooms are all a perfect size and super comfortable. But definitely the strong point of this property is the social areas of the villa, is just like being in direct contact with the Caribbean. The feeling of eating in the outside dinning area and watching the incredible sunsets from the terrace is something that I'm pretty sure none of us will ever forget. If you want to disconnect from the world and relax or even explore the island and do some scuba diving, this would be my place of choice every single time. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and I'm definitely coming back soon.

Car: recommended

As you are only a minute away from Sint Michiel, you find one of the oldest scuba dive schools. The founder of this scuba school even met Jacques Cousteau, the french marine biologist and explorer of the late sixties. For scuba diving this is the place to be. Guided tours, even night dives and rental of equipment available close by. Several nice restaurants are in the neighbourhood. Public transport is available however, own transport is advised. Sint Michiel is rather in the center of Curaçao, therefore all bays, leisure activities and Willemstad are in reach. Sint Michiel itself is an old fisherman's place and still active as such. If you like fresh sea food just check the catch of the day. Further, one can still visit the remains of an old Dutch defense post near the harbor.

The place 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.
