Centrally located, near to Willemstad and all the bays on thát side of the city, and 5 minutes from the Jan Thiel beach, you find Country House Jan Thiel. As you enter, you straightaway feel an atmosphere altogether different from what you’d live at the Jan Thiel beach. There is peace and quiet, the walls of the landhuis are painted... More

There are places in the world so beautiful that you prefer to keep them all for yourself. From the moment we entered the gate of this fantastic 'hidden-way' premises we felt welcome, spoiled and very at 'home'. Luxe without extravagancy, exciting but peaceful. We felt very embrased by the lovely host family, Lieve, Boris and there little daughter. . And... More

My review is based on an accurate appreciation of what this place is: The excellent stay to rent with a group of friends or where you can organize a family reunion. The place is quiet, lovely and well located (about 4 minutes drive from the Jan Thiel Beach area and a short drive from the old colonial Willemstad). If you... More

We stayed with the whole family 4 days in this fantastic place celebrating a number of birthdays. The service Boris, Lieve and their staff provided was out of this world. They made sure that everybody was as comfortable as possible. Nothing was too much for them. After 4 days nobody wanted to leave. The whole estate is very nice and... More

We stayed at Landhuis Jan Thiel for 8 days and we had a fabulous time! If you are looking for a quite intimate place, where you can relax, lay back, enjoy excellent service and the best food of the island, you better stopover here. Boris and his wife Lieve will do anything to make you holiday as good as you... More

This is one of the best properties on the Island. As soon as you enter the gate, you feel the wind, the peaceful atmosphere and you are in your luxury getaway. Great rooms and small houses with lots of diversity, decoration and things to do. We went playing games with our family and kids, like: tennis, jeu de boules, ping-pong... More

Our stay was a short one but definitely one to remember.

It is a unique and beautiful venue which in outstanding... More

The property is just great! well maintained, great location and a movie-like scenery. Combined with the feel-like-home hospitality of Boris, Lieve and little Bes it just made a perfect Christmas vacation. Not to mention Boris' cooking skills!! Landhuis Jan Thiel caters to young and old. Though the age difference between the youngest and oldest in our party was 70 years,... More
