Absolutely perfect location. Our two story townhome is perched above the beautiful azure waters of Westpunt Bay. Picturesque views of the quaint fishing village, calm seas, and lush tropical foliage add to the charm of this resort community. Pick up your car at the airport and travel west to an area that seems untouched by development or cruise ship crowds. Divers will appreciate the easy access to the calm and protected waters of the west end and the healthy and abundantly populated coral reefs just a few meters from shore. Two PADI dive operations are nearby for equipment rentals and boat diving for those who want to explore further offshore. Hikers and sightseers can take advantage of the two nearby national parks with rocky shores, crashing waves, or mountain trails. Come back to the resort and cool off in the large pool or just relax on the spacious deck.
Be sure to join your neighbors at the sea wall each evening for the spectacular sunsets.

The weather on the island of Curacao is fantastic. Winter temperatures usually mean lows in the mid 70's with highs in the mid 80's. Summer temps will be just a few degrees warmer and October is the warmest month. Consistent winds from the east to the west allow many to sleep with the windows open instead of using the air conditioning. The climate of Curacao is considered to be tropical savanna. Rainfalls total between 20-22 inches per year. Even during the rainy season (early winter) the daytime rain is punctuated with periods of bright sunshine and most rains are at night.
Curacao is a sightseer's dream. The island has enjoyed a rich history which is still in evidence today. A large and protected natural seaport made the island the commercial and cultural hub of the Netherlands Antilles for the past 500 years. Columbus was one of the early explorers to visit her shores. Much of the early history and culture of Curacao is proudly displayed in the many museums and colorful landhuises, which dot the countryside. There are "Kodak moments" at every turn. The island's 38 beaches are generally tucked between coral cliffs or rolling hills. Most are secluded and intimate. The best beaches are found on the island's west end. Photographers will be captivated by the number of unique vistas that will be found in a day's exploration.
