Nicely-apponted one bedroom, two bath townhome in gated oceanfront community.
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.
Despite the tranquil and untouched setting of Marazul, guests will enjoy all of the comforts of home. Each floor is equipped with air conditioning and a ceiling fan and both levels are fully screened. The first floor of the unit has a living area featuring a leather reclining love seat, as well as a twin size Murphy bed tucked under the stairs. Those who require technology will appreciate the high speed internet, flat screen TV , and blue tooth sound system. The kitchen has a four burner gas cook top, microwave, dishwasher, and all of the usual small appliances. There is a full three piece bathroom conveniently situated just inside the back door. Outside the front door, enjoy your breakfast or lunch on the patio facing the sea. In the nicely decorated upstairs bedroom you will find a queen sized bed with a memory foam topper, a full sized dresser, and another flat screen TV. The upstairs bathroom is mirror image of the one below. Sliding doors open on to a spacious deck with shaded seating. There is also a washing machine for your convenience.
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.

Phil is a professor of education and Beth is a nurse. We have lived in Florida for the past 25 years and are both looking forward to many more years of enjoying Marazul together.
BethLarsen purchased this Townhome in 2012
Why BethLarsen chose Sabana Westpunt
We can't fully describe out favorite place on earth without detailing the reasons we chose this particular location on this particular island. First, let me say that we are coastal Florida residents and have been scuba divers for 20 years.We have traveled extensively throughout the Caribbean and have ventured as far away as the Red Sea. During the last 10 years we would ask ourselves "Is this the place for us?" at every location we visited. There was always a reason we crossed off other locations, even though we enjoyed the diving there. After our first trip to the west end of Curacao, we were "hooked." We made two additional visits in the next year, and bought out Marazul home on the third trip. Nowhere else did we find the combination of diving, accommodations, infrastructure, and ease of travel. The ease of excellent shore diving sealed the deal. Being able to set our own schedule (read: no 8AM boat dive starts) and pick our own places (at a fraction of the cost of boat diving) was the icing on the cake. We can't say enough about the convenience of being able to walk out the front door, walk 50 or 60 paces to the stairs, and jump in to the turquoise sea. Getting to know "who" lives under certain coral heads or sponges, or "who" to expect hanging out under the ladder/dock/or mooring buoys makes each dive just that much more special. (And it is a bonus for the underwater photographer.) With so many quality dive sites scattered along the western and southern coast we will never run out of enjoyable places to explore.

We loved our 7 week stay in Marazul. Beth was a very responsive host and has created a very comfortable unit in a well kept resort.
Lex her on site manager was great!
Loved the swimming and sunshine!!
We'll be back!
Thanks so much for your positive review of your stay in our Marazul home! It was a pleasure working with you and we are honored that you chose our home for your vacation. We look forward to having you again next year!
Beth and Phil Larsen
Beth Larsen's Marazul villa was the most perfect place for our family of 3. Our 12 year old son enjoyed his own space sleeping on the Murphy bed downstairs while we had our own very comfortable bedroom upstairs. It would have been nice to have space downstairs to hang our wet scuba gear. We would let our gear drip dry on the porch then carry upstairs to dry out on the balcony overnight. The basic spices, utensils, pots and pans, electric kettle and small toaster oven were available. Perfectly located. Lots of very good places to eat. Groceries only 12km away in Barber or back 30 minutes to the big grocery store Centrum. GoWest Diving only 4 minutes away which is THE best dive shop and site! Incredible healthy reef right in front of the villa or in front of the dive shop. Fun easy drive to Williemstad. Movies, shopping in Punda, eating at Plaza Bieu! Fantastic place! Highly recommend!
Private and quiet!
We loved our stay at Marazul E2! Beth's detailed emails prior to our departure were most helpful and much appreciated! Lex the manager was also super welcoming and helpful. The villa was as described. AC worked like a charm, though the power went out once one evening just for an hour or so. We'd been forewarned of this as the power company does regular rotational blackouts in certain parts of the island. It's part of life so no worries! We would definitely love to come back! Oh and the snorkeling is the best!
Property was neat and clean and was better than pictures show. Air conditioning worked great.
We enjoyed our stay at this property. Beth was great when making our reservation. She was quick to respond and answer our questions and checked in during our stay to see if we had all we needed. Lex (Property manager) was very helpful and checked in periodically to see if we had everything we needed. He was also easy to find if we needed him in between visits.
We snorkeled several times and were not disappointed. Variety of sea life and coral. We were also given great info on other great places to snorkel and explore.
The Island is small and easy to navigate. Street signs are different than we are used to, but if you have a map you will get along fine. A rental car is a must. We were able to cover the whole island during our week long visit.
Some restaurants we enjoyed were Sol Foods(wish they were open every day), Trio Penotti, and Landhuis Misjé. Staff and food were wonderful at all. One night we bought fresh fish(baracuta) right from the fisherman and prepared it ourselves.
Overall, the atmosphere is relaxing with great ocean views. If you are a fancy resort type person, this is not for you, but if you love a quiet relaxing vacation you will not be dissappointed.
Thanks so much for your kind review! We know how important vacations are and are so glad that you enjoyed yours in our Marazul villa. If we can be of help with any future plans please don't hesitate to let us know!
Great Vacation Home
It was our third stay at Marazul resort. We absolutely love this place. It's beautiful and quiet. The house is clean and has everything we needed. Managers are very helpful and responsive. Best Curacao snorkeling beaches are 5-15 minutes drive from resort. I am looking forward to many more visits.
Thank you for your review of our Marazul home! We are glad you enjoyed your stay and hope you will stay with us the next time you vacation in Curacao!
Great for divers!
A nice, quiet escape away from everything. The owners give you lots of information prior to arrival. Plan your food shop before you go! There are no shops up there. The diving is incredible and very easy access from shore. Would come again!
We are located at the far western end of the island, about a 25min. drive from the airport and a 35 min. drive from the main town, Willemstad. It is lovely to get away from all of the traffic, noise, crowds, and the usual urban unpleasantness, yet close enough to be able to take advantage of the city's amenities, like grocery stores, shopping malls, banks, restaurants (including fast food), medical care, casinos, movie theaters, museums and historical buildings.
