Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Jan Thiel - Tropenhuis Palmar

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

Our house is located in one of the finest and safest residential areas of Curacao. It is located in a secure neighborhood with many interesting tourist attractions.

Our total of 300 sqm house on 1000 sqm large plot is divided into our private residential area, the Studio Bon Biba forward and the Apartment Bon Bini to the garden, each with separate entrance.

Apartment and Studio provide a high quality, are individually decorated and have both ceiling fans and air conditioning. Because of the special Caribbean construction of the house guests rarely need airconditioning. Because we try to keep our rental fees as low as possible, we will charge you for the nightly use of airo 5 EUR, 5 USD or 10 ANG for each nicht and each airco you use. Studio and the apartment are equipped with 110V and also 220V outlets. Free WLAN / WiFi are available and we recommend to bring your notebook, tablet or smartphone for watching news or television, if you want.

Our house is completly equipped with mosquito sreen, as far as we know, no other house on Curacao offers this, so you can sit very comfortably on the porch of our Studio Bon Biba without being molested by insects, that are normal for the Caribbean.

Our beautiful garden with palm trees, shaded areas and a large pool are available to our guests at any time. It's quite possible to see here hummingbirds or parrots

The directions from the airport to our house you will receive 2 weeks ahead of your arrival; easiest via the "mobile host".

Our district Vista Royal - Jan Thiel offers many tourist highlights and next to beach clubs and one natural beach without entrance fee, all of them within walking distance: www.JanThielVillage.com

Jan Thiel Beach has evolved into a super attractive hotspot and beach where you can swim and relax wonderfully. Enjoy a beautiful sunset or on each Wednesday live music, a candle-light dinner or a drink on the seafront. One of the highlights for the Zanzibar is the "Happy Hour" each Saturday from 5 pm - 6 pm.

Village Marina with the PiratsNest at Spanish Water, easily reachable in walking distance, is absolutely worth seeing. A short distance further on the right side is Caracabaai Beach with the Golden Seahorse Restaurant and BeachBar, where you can have very tasty and affordable lunch and dinner, see http://bit.ly/1T64Etd

Several divers-guests told us, that right here in our area are wonderful, easily accessible diving places such as a sunken TugBoat, and it is not necessarily to drive all the way towards West Point! Great snorkeling is also easily accessible in our area. You can discover the underwater world around several different beaches!

A small supermarket, "An den Tweel - Albert Heijn" is within walking distance; the bigger supermarket "Vreugdenhil" on Caracasbaaiweg provides a free shuttle service bus once a day. Pick-up point is opposite the Morena Resort in about 2 minutes walk from us.

Jan Thiel Beach Club with beach, Papagayo Beach Club, diving and windsurfing schools, a natural beach and a marina are within a few minutes walk. There are also various restaurants, boutiques, souvenir shops, a supermarket, car rental, an ice cream parlor with homemade, Italian ice cream and even a casino. See also www.JanThielVillage.com

Several places offer book diving, snorkeling or sunset trips by catamarans, sailboats or motor yachts. Or sightseeing tours along the coast to the Spanish Water. Or enjoy an exciting boat trip through harbor area with the famous refinery in the oil from the only 60 km from Venezuela.

Especially popular are the day trips by catamaran to the uninhabited island of Klein Curacao with beach barbecue, or even a multi-day trip on the historic sailing ship Insulinde which has its mooring near Emma Bridge at the famous Handelskade in Willemstad, listed by World Heritage. There you can se large cruise ships, oil tankers, pilot vessels etc. very close.

On a trip to the west coast you can find more beautiful beaches, that are good for diving and snorkeling.

A visit to dolphins, sea lions, sharks and other marine life in the Sea Aquarium. There they also offer swimming with the dolphins. The Restaurant Hemingways directly at Sea Aquarium Beach is also worth a visit; Mambo Beach is there too with many other bars and restaurants.

Great adventures can also bring a day trip to the Christoffel Park with lots of nature and impressive rocks and the rough north coast.

By the way, we can also recommend dental treatments that are offered with European quality at affordable prices here on the island.

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 Curacao

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. We offer free professional WI-FI on the entire property.

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!

super! top locatie

  • 5 of 5

We ( Dutch parents with a 15 year old son) had a super holiday in Tropenhuis Bon Bini. The Island and the sea were magical. Every day we started and ended with a swim in the nice and clean swimming pool. The location ( Jan Thiel) is situated in one of the best area’s of the island ;walking distance to Jan Thiel Beach, nice Restaurants and supermarket. We recommend to rent a car so you can explore the whole island with it’s beautiful beaches etc.

The appartment is cosy, very hygienic an proper and has anything you need for a relaxed holiday

Although the owners were on holiday we had a very hospital welcome by the caretakers Fam, Nannenberg.

We are looking forward to a next visit.

Totale karibische Erholung auf hohem Niveau

  • 5 of 5

Vom ersten Tag an fühlten wir uns in diesem wirklich schönen Apartment sofort wie Zuhause. Alles, was man für einen tollen Urlaub benötigt, war vorhanden und es war sehr sauber und ordentlich. Ebenso angenehm empfanden wir die entspannende Atmosphäre im Garten mit Pool und Palmen, und dass wir unsere Lieblings-Strände und Restaurants leicht zu Fuß erreichen konnten. Schade, dass unser Urlaub so schnell vorüber war. Wir kommen ganz sicher wieder!

Nichts zu meckern, alles gut verlaufen. Sehr kurze Wege sowohl zum Strand als auch zum Supermarkt. Sehr sauber und durch den Deckenventilator nicht zu heiß.

Perfekte Erholung

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Klassens,

Es hat uns so gut bei euch gefallen, dass wir das hier gar nicht in Worte fassen können. Das Apartment war für uns vollkommen ausreichend ausgestattet und wir haben die Zeit einfach nur genossen. Es war herrlich, morgens im Wohnzimmer zu Frühstücken, während einem eine leichte Brise um die Ohren glitt. Am Nachmittag lud uns der Pool nach einem Tag am Strand nochmal zum Baden ein. Sven fehlt es jetzt schon, Abends bei einem kühlem Bier auf der Veranda zu sitzen. Eure offene, freundliche und hilfsbereite Art hat uns viel Freude bereitet. Ein ganz herzliches Dank auch noch mal an Andreas für die wohltuende Rückenbehandlung und an David für seine Hilfsbereitschaft in Sachen Videofilm :)

Wir werden Euch bei Freunden und Arbeitskollegen weiterempfehlen. Sollten wir Curacao noch einmal besuchen, dann nur bei euch im Apartment.

Viele liebe Grüße an euch 4,

Saskia und Sven aus Bochum
