We stayed at #6 for 20 nights from Dec 28th - Jan 17th and enjoyed it very much. It has a lovely, open feel to it particularly for four people. The top floor is spectacular with the bedroom opening to the balcony offering views right across the bay to Westpunt and beyond. The en suite shower room is huge and very well done - excellent walk in closet with safe for valuables. Downstairs, there is a well equipped kitchen, dining area and small sitting area with TV and two futon beds pushed together so you could have six people in the house if you wished. Outside is a porch with both dining and seating areas thoughtfully screened with trees, plants and flowers for privacy. The small downstairs bedroom opens off the sitting area with TV and has an en suite shower room too. At the back door is a utility room with handy sink and new washing machine. The house has its own router and the WiFi is excellent.
The owners provide a good folder with instructions on how everything works (top left hand drawer in the dresser underneath the stairs) as well as another folder with helpful notes and suggestions on the coffee table. We appreciated being able to use one or two items we had forgotten from the snorkelling box in the utility room and left two inflatable vests as a thank you. Good selection, by the way, of books in English in the downstairs bedroom.
We have rated this house very good rather than excellent for a couple of reasons. First, the bed in the small downstairs bedroom is not comfortable for a couple particularly for a long stay. It consists of two hard single beds pushed together with a rather lumpy foam insert put into the join. We put the duvet over the mattress and put the bottom sheet on top of that which helped a lot. This would be easily resolved by putting a topper over the whole bed as we had in 9B where we stayed before we came to #6. Secondly, we had to use the handy fold up steps in the utility room to use the microwave/oven as it was high up and beyond our reach. Last, some space for food not kept in the fridge would be good - we had to empty a couple of drawers and amalgamate one or two shelves. As it's a 40 minute drive to a good supermarket we got quite a bit in to take us through our three week stay so needed somewhere to put it.
Please note that these are small issues and in no way prevent us from recommending this very nice house. We rented it through Dorthy who has a house in the resort and is a friendly, patient and knowledgeable support.
My wife and I were guests of my sister and her husband. This was our first trip to Curacao. It was so enjoyable that we are planning to return this year for an extended stay. The condo was perfect; swimming pool, water front snorkeling - best we have ever experienced - clean and attractive, remote part of the island to enjoy a solid week of relaxation. The sunsets were amazing. We would sit outside the condo each evening with a glass of wine and watch the sunset. Within a short drive were amazing beaches of sand and palm trees - again incredible snorkeling from the beach.
