We rented a villa in Boca Gentil to share as a family; this made the trip cheaper than going to a hotel. We were greeted by a fantastic villa that gave us so much room. The main floor had a large open outdoor living and dining area that connected to the pool deck. The was a pass through to the kitchen and a large indoor livingroom. There were three rooms on the main floor, one being a large Master Bedroom, double sinks, and private bath. The other two shared a shower and bathroom. Downstairs there was another room that had its own entrance, sitting area, bathroom and outdoor space. Overall the house was amazing, there were some minor things like previous damage, and an ice dispenser that didn’t work, but those were all minor. We had to call the property rep for a A/C issue and they arrived shortly after our call.
Can I give this a 5? No, due to the broken items... I will give this a high 4 though and would gladly come back.
We stayed as a group of 8 in a villa for 10 days. Beautiful views and the facilities are well kept. It's a really easy drive to get to the site from the airport too. Overall we were happy with our visit
We rented an ocean-front four bedroom villa with a pool for four friends. The house was as promised and a very convenient walk to the grocery store, and restaurants/shops.
Was a little disappointed in the beach area as it was actually a beach pool (think pool with sand) than a straight walk into turquoise water as you'd get elsewhere. With that said, we spent all of our time at our villa pool watching the ships sail by.
Taxis from this location to Willemstad are pricey so if you plan to go out and about more than once or twice, definitely rent a car.
We are only on our second night here and so far we are very happy with the location & accommodations. We spent our first 4 days in Curacao at an all inclusive resort and were ready for something a little quieter and more upscale. This place does NOT disappoint. We are staying in a three bedroom 2 bath condo with a gorgeous view. We are with 5 minutes walk to the grocery and several restaurants, most of which are right on the beach. And speaking of the beach...it's a series of small beach areas with plenty of chairs, restaurants, bars, and areas where you can walk into the water. We walked all the way down to the end, where there is a small restaurant and bar called Kokos. You can pay to use their loungers and they will bring drinks and food to you. We plan to walk back down tomorrow to try a different area of the beach. The complex of Boca Gentile is very nice, clean and upscale. There is a security gate where everyone must check in, and we have seen security in the area of the beach as well. This is NOT a place to visit if you plan to have wild parties, but it's a great place to relax and grab a tan.
We rented a "Hilltop" apartment with our family of 4 (kids 20 and 18). Very nice place, very roomy and clean, great kitchen, big fridge and freezer, good airco. Porch is nice with a pool 5 steps away (shared with 12 apartments but always very quit). Top floor would be ideal since you have a direct view at the sea. We were at ground floor but there we could enjoy the well maintained garden. Parking space near the house, security guards at the gate around the clock.

We booked thru either Homeaway or VRBO, with the owner. Prices per night may vary depending on your travel dates but I believe we paid around $1300 for the full week. I will tell you up front that the owner doesn't take PayPal or check or credit card, only bank transfer to the Netherlands. Since most banks charge an extra fee for that, it made it a bit inconvenient and added an extra $100 total to our week fee. Probably wouldn't rent again from him because of that, although the apartment location is lovely and the view is amazing.
