     Description 


Welcome to Curacao! This island has so much to offer and I hope you will fall in love with it like I
have.

Directions from airport to house:
1. After renting a car at the airport, turn right leaving the airport and follow the road for
about 3 kilometers until you get to the roundabout with a large metallic sculpture of an iguana. If
you want to go to CENTRUM, a big supermarket, please go to instruction # 6 and follow it
2. If you are not going to Centrum, then take your first right at the roundabout towards
Westpunt
3. You will drive 12.5 kilometers on this road. You will pass the intersection that takes you
to Willibrordus (this is the place where you can observe flamingoes in the wild) but do not take it
now. Keep going straight. You will pass Daniel on your right-hand side (this is a great restaurant
by the way). You’ll also pass a small town called Tera Cora that has a medium size grocery store on
your left-hand side called California. This store isn’t recommended for your large purchases but
convenient for the minor stuff. Shortly after you pass California you will pass a large gas station
on your left-hand side. About 2 km after the gas station you will come to an intersection (fork in
the road) where you make a left towards Soto and Lagun.
4. After making a left at the fork, you’ll drive 8.4 kilometers. Make a left immediate after
passing the school (there will also be a yellow church on your right-hand side)
5. This is the winding road you’ll drive for about 3.5 kilometers to the house. You’ll pass by
an old landhuis named Santa Martha (a “landhuis” is a colonial plantation home that is popular in
this part of the island). You’ll also pass by the buildings that comprised the Sunset Waters Hotel.
When you get to the small round about in front of what used to be the reception building, you turn
left and about 0.5 km past the hotel you’ll find the house on your right-hand side four houses past
the house that has several tall radio antennas. This will be your home for the next few days.

6. DIRECTIONS TO GO TO CENTRUM, THE BIG SUPERMAKET. When you get to the first round about, the
one with the metal iguana, do not turn right, keep going straight. You will come to another
roundabout, keep going straight. You will come to a signal light about one mile past the second
roundabout, turn right and the grocery store CENTRUM will be on your left hand side. You cannot
miss it. Return the same way until you reach the iguana roundabout. Here make a left going towards
Westpunt. Follow the directions above

7. If you need groceries after hour there is a small grocery store that carries a lot of things
and is opened until 12 midnight. When you leave your house, come to the main road and instead of
turning right to go to Willemstad, turn left going towards Lagun. About half a mile on your right
you will pass by an old plantation house called Klein Santa Martha. GREAT RESTAURANT. Keep going
for about 2 miles and you will come to an intersection. You will find a small supermarket that can
supply your needs. It is usually filled with local people and load music, do not fear, they are all
very friendly.

Local property managers:
• Inge (pronounced Ingah) and Dirk (pronounced Derik)

• Inge and Dirk will be waiting for you at the house upon your arrival. They will give you the
keys and give you tips on the house (e.g. instruction on how to operate the appliances, manage the
internet, and information on beaches, bars and restaurants)
• Their house is directly across the house with the tall radio antennas




Nearby Beaches:
• There’s a beach and lagoon just a 1-minute drive from the house. It’s the beach that used to
belong to the Sunset Waters Hotel. You can rent snorkeling and diving gear from the dive shop
located on the beach.
• Cas Abao is about a 10-minute drive from the house back along the road you came down when
driving from the airport to the house. This beach is large and rather popular. You can rent beach
chairs, lockers and snorkeling gear. There is also a restaurant & bar on the beach. Keep in mind
there’s a small entrance fee per car.
• Kenepa Grande (also known as KNIP) is arguably one of the most beautiful beaches on the
island. In fact, my son got married on the cliff overlooking this beach. This beach is about a 20-
minute drive from the house and is in the opposite direction of the airport. It’s very popular among
locals and you can do some cliff jumping. There’s also a small snack bar.
• Kenepa Chiki is a smaller beach just down the road from Kenepa Grande. It’s also beautiful
and has some cliffs, albeit smaller than Kenepa Grande.
• Westpunt is a bit further down the main road past the turn you’d take for the Kenepa
beaches. At this beach you can do some cliff jumping and eat at the restaurant that sits atop the
cliff and gives you gorgeous views of the shoreline.
• Kura Hulanda Lodge is all the way at the western tip of the island, about a 25-minute drive
from the house. It has a very long beach and all of the amenities you’d expect from a resort. Dirk
and Inge will give you a lot more information.



 

     Amenities 


Once you move in you will never want to leave

Surrounded by 13 oceanfront villas in a very private community sits CORAL REEF VILLA, the most
luxurious rental property of Curacao. This ocean front villa sits on top of the beginning of the
best coral reef in Curacao. 20 steps down from a gorgeous infinity pool you have your very own ocean
reef. Swim miles and miles of the most pristine waters without having to rent a boat. This villa
sits 100 feet from Harris Hole one of the best diving spots in the whole island of Curacao.

The main house boasts three bedrooms and two baths, completely equipped and decorated in modern
Caribbean flair. The kitchen is equipped for even the most discriminating gourmet cook. Detached
from the main house, there is also a separate master quarters. The entire villa can accommodate 8
persons in total luxury and comfort with one king size bed, two queen size beds and two single beds.

From the infinity terrace you will enjoy an uninterrupted view of the ocean and sky. Swimming in the
pool looking over the ocean under a sky lit night is an unforgettable experience. Birds,
butterflies, hummingbirds and iguanas surround you in this half an acre ocean-front estate.

Coral Reef Villa is located about thirty minutes from the airport and 40 minutes from the Blue Bay
golf course or the world famous Willemstad. It’s remote location makes car rental an absolute
necessity, but the total tranquility and peace of mind is well worth it. In 1997, the UNESCO World
Heritage Site committee selected the historic city center of Willemstad—one of just six Caribbean
sites chosen—because of its “outstanding value and integrity, which illustrates the organic growth
of a multicultural community over three centuries, and preserves to a high degree significant
elements.”

What can you do in this beautiful ocean paradise? Swim, snorkel, scuba dive, fish from your own
backyard, hike the nearby mountains, go horseback riding or simply do nothing and enjoy a
spectacular surrounding. Maybe you would befriend one of the friendly neighbors and discover the
history of the largest of the Netherland Antilles. Or you could enjoy any of the hundreds point of
interests just a few minutes away by car.

In Curacao you are almost guaranteed a perfect weather. Curacao is outside the hurricane belt,
Tsunami proof, has never in recorded history suffered an earthquake and there are no poisonous
animals on the island
