About this listing

Located between the airport and historical down-town areas and only five minutes from the nearest beach, this apartment is the ideal retreat during your fun-filled stay in Curacao. Newly refurbished with bedroom, bathroom, living & private porch.

The space

The apartment is divided in a kitchen/living area and a bedroom, divided by a comfortable bathroom. A private porch with outdoor seating sits under the big frangipani tree. Three dogs walk free in the yard for your protection and affection.

The outdoor seating area and the apartment have to be reached through the yard of the main house. There are multiple bus stops nearby and a large supermarket across the street.

After an informative check-in I tend to let the amount of interaction depend on the guest. I work full-time+, so I'm not at home much, but always available for questions and tips by text message or email.

Guest access

Taking the outside entrance around the main house you can chill on the veranda in front of the apartment, the private patio area or put your feet up in the hammock under the mango trees...

Juliette is an extremely friendly and helpful host. Her father let us into the apartment as we arrived mid-afternoon and she was at work. Getting the keys to the apartment and settling in was an extremely smooth transition. This apartment in general is a little more rustic, of course, than any resort or hotel you can stay in on Curacao; but Juliette's price per night for this apartment is very fair. Remember that it is priced on the lower end than most places in Curacao -- but still gives you access to all the best things the island has to offer and allows you to spend that money you save on more excursions and adventures! We loved sitting on the patio at night and eating dinner on the breezy, beautiful and calm island of Curacao and look forward to coming back. Juliette gave us very helpful and genuine advice on where to go and how to get there that definitely enhanced our stay. If you are looking for a calm and safe home base, stay at this apartment!

Caution. Overlooks gravel patio full of unscooped dog feces. Patio seating area is where dogs frequently urinate. Wifi restricted to bedroom and receives one bar and frequently disconnects. Bed cardboard. Pillows cardboard and stained. Tepid water only in shower. Small frig with door off freezer area. Hot plate takes 10 minutes to boil water. Utensils cheap and knife handle broke. Not 5 minutes to beach is a 45 minute walk then resort must drive you in. Can not take buses to beaches - they come every 2 hours and don't go near beaches at least 30 minutes more walk to get to them. Rear windows in apt looks into utility alley and sometimes strong bad smell. Air conditioner very noisy even on fan. There was a barking growling dog that prevented me from exiting the apt both mornings and hostess upset that I thought this inappropriate. What a waste. Find another place to stay.

Response from Juliette:
While my profile clearly states that there are dogs freely roaming the property, Heather was right in that one dog was very unfriendly to her. He was a little stray that I had been taking care of and trying to place in a home. Heather had no problems with the apartment when I first asked her about it and besides the growling dog did not receive any complaints from her at all during the first three days that she stayed at my place. We had a conversation about the dog one evening and I tried to get her to get used to him by handing him some treats, but in the middle of the night received a message demanding for me to get rid of the dog, or she would go. I brought the dog to the pound the next day and believe I would have been an extremely heartless person if that had not upset me. However, I did not blame Heather for this, as I also told her, the dog was a stray and couldn't stay, being that I want to rent out my apartment I couldn't have a growling dog on property. I didn't see her the next day and did not find out that she had actually left without saying a word the day after. Removing the dog from the property clearly did not prevent her from leaving anyway. When I checked the apartment I found a door handle clear ripped off, fresh items left in the fridge to rot, and the said knife broken, which was a filet knife with which she tried to cut cheese (one of the hardest things to cut). I believe my profile clearly states the following; - My apartment is 5 minutes from the beach - BY CAR - I do have dogs living in the yard Yes, the shower does not have a heating device, as the water is naturally a normal temperature and installing it would drive the cost of the apartment up. I have not ever had any complaints about the air conditioner and while the fridge is not new it works fine. Heather ends her review in saying find another place to stay, which is very good advice in her case. If you want to travel on a budget and decide to stay at someone's home, it might be good to realize that you can't go around demanding things and expecting full concierge services and expecting the hostess to happily dispose of a member of the family because it bothers you in the one week you are there. Being a good guest used to be a value as highly regarded as being a good host and I strongly believe that Airbnb is not for Heather. I am very glad she found a different place to finish her holiday and hope she had a better time there.

We werden enthousiast en persoonlijk verwelkomd door Juliette. Alles zag er keurig uit en door de ligging was er ook genoeg privacy. Huisje was vrij klein maar dat stoorde niet zo erg, omdat je toch meestal lekker buiten zat (onder de blauwe parasol!). Het bed was prima! De ligging was ook prettig: vlakbij grote supermarkt en diverse opstapplaatsen van openbaar vervoer. Rustige straat. Jammer genoeg hadden we maar een weekje de tijd.

We hebben enorm genoten van ons verblijf bij Juliette. Juliette is een fijne, warme, attente en discrete gastvrouw waardoor men echt tot rust kan komen in haar tropische tuin. Het appartement is ideaal gelegen! De mooiste baaien liggen er in de buurt, vlakbij is er een supermarkt en een bushakte brengt je van oost-tot westpunt. Het appartement is uitgerust met alles wat men nodig heeft - een goed bed, een fijne nette badkamer, een handige keuken... Echt een aanrader!

I live on the beautiful island Curacao in the Southern Caribbean close to the beaches and our historical down-town. Since 2008 I co-run an event planning & destination management company. In my spare time, I love to DIY, read, hang out on the beach and I love love love live concerts. My motto - if it can't be done the way it's supposed to be done, it's supposed to be done the way it can be done.
