We chose to stay at B&B Sombre Di Kabana for five nights during our trip around the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire and Curaçao) and we are very happy that we did since this is the best B&B we have had the pleasure to stay in during quite a lot of travels all over the world.
What makes the place unique is the combination of great location and atmosphere, excellent facilities and service but most importantly the personality of the two owners Albert and Jack.
We were provided free pickup at the airport as well as ride to the car rental to pick up the car. We were even offered rides to the supermarket and restaurants the first two days since we only had booked a rental car the last three days. This is probably not to be expected as regular service but very appreciated from our side considering our bad planning. Having access to a car is, by the way, recommended independently on where you are staying at Curaçao. :)
The B&B is located in the best part of the Island. The neighborhood feels totally safe both driving through and going for a jog in in the morning. The rooms, including the bathroom, is very spacious and top notch in every detail from the coffee machine down to the luxury soap in the shower.
The garden is a beautiful flowery oasis with a big perfectly temperatured pool, lots of shade under the palms and comfy beach chairs and a hammock to relax in.
Worth mentioning as well is Jack surprising us with ice cream in the afternoon when we stayed by the pool, the guiding tour around the area when we arrived, the provided cell phone with the preprogrammed phone number to Albert in case you run into any trouble, and not the least the fantastic included breakfast were you have the opportunity to make additional sandwiches to bring with you for lunch on your daily adventures.
To summarize it is very obvious that the owner takes great pride in their B&B and in providing a great experience for their guests in every detail. Staying at the B&B actually feels a bit like being adopted for a few say and leaving the place felt a bit sad. If we chose to travel to curaçao again we will definitely stay at B&B Sombre Di Kabana again for our entire stay! :)
