Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Boka Samí

5 bedroom villa at the Caribbean sea

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.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only
  • pets not allowed
  • wheelchair accessible

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 Curacao

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.

Eclipse de Luna

  • 5 of 5

Estuve con mis hijos y mi nieto en esta maravillosa casa. Muy cómoda, espaciosa e ideal para compartir en familia. El mobiliario es perfecto y la atmósfera que se crea al estar frente al mar es sencillamente mágica. Tuvimos la suerte de coincidir con el eclipse y tanto las apariciones de la luna como las caídas diarias del sol fueron espectaculares. 100% recomendada para cualquier tipo de plan, en mi caso fue un plan familiar pero se presta para cualquier ocasión.

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This villa seemed normal from the street, but the moment you open that front gate you know you are up to something incredible. After going through the inside of the house, which is well maintained and brings you a warm feeling, you will go outside to the backyard and be impacted by the ocean view. There is ladder from the house to the ocean so you can go take a relaxing morning swim. The ocean view breakfast is what i miss the most. Open the front door and the backdoor and yo will feel the cross ventilation of pure sea breeze going through the whole house. I deeply recommend this villa for a great family vacation in the island of Curacao

Vacaciones en familia

  • 5 of 5

La casa es sencillamente perfecta. La vista es inigualable. Junto a mi familia, todos pasamos una semana muy agradable. Es espaciosa y fresca. Las luces que entran le van dando un matiz diferente a todos los ambientes durante todo el día. La zona es tranquila y puedes ir caminando a la playa del pueblo de Boca Sami a encontrarte con un pintoresco paisaje de un pueblo típico de pescadores. No se me ocurriría hospedarme en otro lugar en la isla. Ah, Petra, quien te recibe, ella es atenta y muy amble.

Happy Holiday in Curacao

  • 5 of 5

One of the best holiday weeks for me and my wife we can think of. A house with so much space to enjoy. Inside and outside. Looking for relaxation this is one of the best places one can find. For grown kids like me watching the real big ships and tankers going by a week isn't enough. You can sit here, have a cup of coffee, later a bottle of wine, thinking about things of life. And have your own stairs down into the caribbean sea. This place is for people who really need to be for their own. Otherwise a family can get together because of the real positive atmosphere. Petra is always there if you need her and not there if you want to be alone. The nearby supermarket provides all necessary things and more to live here for weeks. Of course a car is needed. The security is always guaranteed through electric gate, high fences and a well planned alarm system with remote control. It is a real good package worth every dollar we paid. We will come back soon!

Villa de charme en bord de mer - Le Paradis !

  • 5 of 5

This is the loveliest villa I have ever stayed in, idyllic; the views were so beautiful that they seemed unreal. The reality proved to be better than the pictures in the web.

If you like reading in a hammock, if you appreciate sunsets, also hearing the waves from your bed, diving into the see before having your first morning coffee, fishing, snorkelling, scuba diving, this is the right place. Some days we did not even leave the house, as everything we were looking for in Curacao, was just there.

The house is big enough for 10 people and still, each of us had our own privacy. The open plan kitchen (with views of the sea) had absolutely everything we needed and on top, there was a barbecue outside, close to the deck, to grill our fish at night.

The villa has beyond what is necessary to enjoy our stay. The neighbourhood is quiet, very down to earth, and it felt completely safe. Not far away there was a store with everything we needed, and the house is walking distance to a cosy beach.

This house and its location are not only perfect for holidays. If I were to stay in the island for some time, i.e. for work, or a long break, I would, without hesitation, stay here. This is the best part of the island, 100% authentic.

Location

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.
