Overview

About the property

Leisure at sea or in the tropical garden by the pool, modern furnishings, WI-FI

Our "Tropenhuis Palmar" is located in one of the most beautiful and sought-after residential areas of Curacao, about 500 meters from the nearest beach, a high quality environment with many interesting tourist offers.

Our total of 300 sq m house on a 1000 sq m large plot is divided into our private residential area and the "Apartment Bon Bini" to the garden with separate entrance and a private completely mosquito-screened veranda.

The apartment offers a high quality of living, is individually decorated and has both ceiling fans and air conditioning in the bedroom, which is rarely needed due to the special Caribbean style of the house. The use of the air conditioner is paid by a small fee on the spot; the use of the fans is free. The apartment are equipped with 110V + 220V outlets.

Free Wi-Fi is available, and we recommend taking your notebook, tablet or smartphone with you, to be able to receive your usual television shows or news, if you want.

Our entire house is equipped with mosquito gauze, which so far no other house on Curacao offers, so you can sit comfortably on the porch, protected from pests!

Our Caribbean garden with palm trees, shady places and a large pool is available to our guests at all times. It is quite possible that you will be visited by hummingbirds or parrots...

The directions from the airport will be sent to you in good time before arrival; it is also available via the "mobile host".

Our district Vista Royal - Jan Thiel offers many tourist highlights and beside beach clubs also natural beaches. Only a few minutes walk away is Jan Thiel Beach, which has become an attractive hotspot in recent years. There are restaurants, boutiques, souvenir shops, a supermarket, car rentals, an ice cream parlor with homemade Italian ice cream and even a casino. In the evening you have the opportunity to enjoy beautiful sunsets, sometimes with live music, candlelight dinners or a drink by the sea. A highlight is every Saturday from 5 PM - 6 PM the "happy hour" in the ZanziBar with drinks for half price. See also www.Jan-Thiel-Village.com.

The small modern supermarket, "Van den Tweel / Albert Heijn" is within walking distance; the larger supermarket "Vreugdenhil" on the Caracasbaaiweg provides a free shuttle bus service once a day. Pick-up point is opposite the Morena resort about 3 minutes walk from us.

Also Village Marina with the "Pirates Nest" at the Spaanse Water and Caracasbaai-Beach with the restaurants "Golden Seahorse" and "Pop's Place", also within easy walking distance, are absolutely recommendable! Public buses to Wilhelmstad run regularly.

Divers guests have repeatedly told us that there are wonderful easy-to-reach dive sites in our area, such as the sunken TugBoat, and you do not necessarily have to head for the most beautiful spots in Curacao to Westpunt! You can also snorkel here near several easily accessible spots in order to discover the Caribbean underwater world!

At various providers you can book here diving, snorkeling or sunset trips with catamarans, sailing ships or motor yachts. Interesting is a sightseeing tour along the coast and through the Spaanse Water, where almost all circumnavigators stop with their sailing ships, and where magnificent villas can be seen from the water side. Or an exciting discovery trip through the extensive harbor area with the world-famous refinery, where oil is processed from Venezuela only 60 km away.

Particularly popular are the day trips by catamaran to the uninhabited island of Little Curacao with a hearty beach barbecue, or the multi-day trips with the historic sailing ship Insulinde, which has its anchorage near the swiveling Emma Bridge, next to the World Heritage Site, the famous Handelskade in Willemstad. From there at the entrance to the harbor you can watch closely large cruise ships, oil tankers, pilot ships, etc.

On a trip to the west of Curacao there are nature reserves, the Christoffelberg and other beautiful beaches and great bays to discover. Or you are planning to visit dolphins, sea lions, sharks and other marine life at the Sea Aquarium, which also offers swimming with dolphins. The Hemingways restaurant on Sea Aquarium Beach is also worth a visit, as is the adjacent Mambo beach. A rental car is recommended to discover the entire island, which can be obtained directly on arrival at the airport or at several car rental companies in the immediate vicinity of our house.

Notes:
In our TROPENHUIS PALMAR we rent out the APARTMENT BON BINI. We are proud that our guests keep telling us that they never had such a fully equipped rental object as with us. It is very important to us to keep our rental rates as low as possible, and we also do not ask for any seasonal surcharges. Unfortunately, we can not prevent that now all major rental portals worldwide started to charge a service fee. If you have to cancel yur stay after you made a booking, we are unfortunately forced to withhold a fee of 50.00 EUR for the administrative expenses. The air-conditioning für nightly use costs 5 USD or EUR 5 per night per air conditioner. Our rental price is calculated for two people, for an extra person, we ask 10 EUR per night. The credit card charges of 3% (minimum 10 EUR per transfer will be deducted from your deposit) you avoid with bank transfer.

Nice, clean and close to everything, pool is great

  • 4 of 5

Appartment was nice, you can walk to the beach, supermarket and bus station. Equipment was fine, but I don't really like to buy things like hand soap, soap for dishes, toilet paper and plastic bags when I am on vacation, I really think it should be included. Also, we had not realize that we have to pay extra because the payment was made by credit card.

If you live in a city and are used to sounds like cars, dogs barking all evening long and early in the morning, the place is ok for you. if not, you may not like it at all. Although we loved the location, the place, and the Host kindness, we will not return.

Owner's Response: Your husband said serveral times this is the perfect place...!?! Credit Card fees (for the company, NOT for me): You should read the rental contract before booking; we offer payment methods without any fees. There is a difference between a hotel and a private rental apartment. You forgot to write that all you need for the first couple of days was included on your arrival day - as it is always! You should know that our price is the lowest and the best offer in this high standard area. We will keep the price as low as possible to give all people a chance to enjoy this wonderful island in our normally very expensive area.

Great apt. in beautiful location with nice pool

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Mimi and Rolf, have just retaken control of the property after the previous renters/managers moved on. They are working hard to come up to speed and were most eager to solve problems quickly and completely. We had a couple issues that were handled promptly. The property is in a great location, close to a nice grocery and a beautiful beach. The apartment (we stayed in the 1 bdrm) overlooks the pool and is cool and comfortable thanks to the ceiling fans and large mosquito-proof kitchen/living area. We had all the kitchen amenities we needed, parking is easy, a choice of dive shops and restaurants within minutes. Jan Thiel is a bit of a drive to the beautiful Willemstadt, but for a longer stay (ours was 8 days) having a bit of separation from the fairly heavy Curacao traffic but with all amenities close, was welcome. Thanks Mimi and Rolf, and happy holidays!

Tolle Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren rundum zufrieden, fühlten uns sehr wohl. Mimi und Rolf sind sehr nette Gastgeber.

Vielen Dank für alles, auch für den ein oder anderen Geheimtipp auf Curacao.

Das Aprtment mit der neuen Terasse war sehr gemütlich, auch nicht zu warm. Die Klimaanlage haben wir tatsächlich nicht benötigt.

Hoffentlich auf bald.

We love TROPENHUIS PALMAR and APARTMENT BON BINI and will come back for sure!

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy to have found this apartment. Everything was so clean and comfortable! A large luxury double door refrigerator with ice cube and water dispenser, unbelievable! We enjoyed our large private veranda and the hammock very often. Unique and fabulous was the mosquito screen. The location of the house is ideal, because beaches, supermarket, restaurants and much more are very close. Very sympathetic owners. And all for that low price!!!

We had a hard time saying goodbye, but we will come back, that's for sure!

Many thanks for everything!

Great place nearby the beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Bon Bini. The apartment was very nice and had everything we need. The place is only a quick 10 min walk from the supermarket and beach. Mimi was very helpful and we enjoyed our stay very much.

About Mimi Schoenrock

I enjoy when our guests feel comfortable and discover a wonderfully amazing Caribbean island with joyful people and fantastic beaches!

This is why my husband and I, grown up in Germany, chose to live on Curacao in 2006 !!!

Mimi Schoenrock purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Mimi Schoenrock chose Jan Thiel

We fell in love with the caribbean flair of our house www.Holidays-Curacao.com, and the location is just ideal, because it is adjescent to www.Jan-Thiel-Village.com.

What makes this apartment unique

Our house is completely protected by mosquito screen; in the whole caribbean we have not seen someting like this before. Both our studio Bon Biba and our apartment Bon Bini have separate entrances as well as a mosquito-protected veranda with table and seats (the apartment veranda is brand new!).We offer free fibre internet by WI-FI on the entire property.
