The stay at Sombre di Kabana was very nice. Paul & Marion (the owners) are lovely people who didn’t really treat us like guests, but more like family. Of course the space you have for yourself (inside your own house & in the garden) is more than big enough to get all the privacy that you need, but if you want some good company or advice about the Island, Paul & Marion are always around somewhere. The location itself is great, away from all the crowded tourist hotels, in a relaxed residential neighbourhood. It is close enough to the popular beaches though (and of course the supermarkets/other stores), you can be there in no-time. I recommend to get some transportation though, even a scooter will do the job, but walking will take you a pretty long time. Expect a nice indoor living that doesn’t have this generic hotel feeling, it feels more like a small house where people are actually living. It is cosy and you can see that love and attention is put into it. The garden & swimming pool are also very nice and relaxing. Thanks Paul & Marion for a great time!

This was our 4th time staying at Sombre di Kabana and i cant imagine staying at another place. It just feels like we are home. The location is quiet and close to everything that you need. The property is spacious and private and most of the time you feel all alone relaxing around the pool sipping on a cold one. The accommodations are clean and everything you require has been thought about and at your disposal. Paul and Marion are wonderful hosts and we really enjoyed our time and conversations with them. The breakfast was very delicious and they provided us with plenty of options to accommodate even the pickiest of eaters. Looking forward to our return visit next year and hopefully sampling some of Paul's creations.

We came to Curacao to unwind, to relax and to recharge. Well, at Sombre di Kabana we got what we're looking for. Don't underestimate Paul and Marion, they are 5 star chefs in their kitchen. We ordered their breakfast, oh boy, it doubles as a lunch! And we accepted their offer for a small dinner, well it's not small at all! We got 4 courses for such a reasonable price, highly recommendable. Our cottage was incredibly clean and well equipped. No need to bring your toiletries, they have it all covered. The same with tea bags or coffee cups for the Nespresso. They think of all the small things! We will be back. And so will you if you book with them.

We are 2 couples/explorers in our ‘50s from Winnipeg Canada. We stayed in the spacious 2 bedroom Casa Piscina. Paul and Marion provided excellent service, are very welcoming and helpful. They picked us up at the airport and helped us find a car rental in advance. The rental car was delivered and picked up at the B&B. Their B&B is in a residential area so you should rent a car if you plan on exploring. They helped us set up the ‘waze’ navigation app on my phone and it worked great! Their Kabana is as beautiful as it shows in photos and there is plenty of private space if you wish. Other perks: long beds, use of the BBQ, AC works good, 3 sets of towels (shower, pool, beach) and a hangar to dry them, plenty of coffee and tea selection, a handy 9 litre cooler (for picnics or beer/wine), beach mats, chairs & umbrella. We made our own breakfast and drank the tap water no problem. After a long day of exploring and swimming, the pool was very welcome! The 5 other guests from US and Europe were nice. Thanks for having us! We would rent here again and recommend it to friends!

We really loved staying at Sombre di Kabana! The apartment we stayed in (the casa) was spacey, clean, well kept, tastefully decorated and had everything you need when coming back “home” from your adventures on the island. I loved the many little touches here including the different flavors of tea stocked in your tea tin (including some Dutch brands) the kitchen full of all the utensils you need to cook in your casa, or the generosity of our innkeepers having cold beers waiting for us upon arrival after a long morning of traveling. It was easy to just relax in the gardens under our little thatched roof patio, on the pool chairs and in the hammocks around the property. The B and B is located in a residential area that is pretty quiet so just sitting outside in the sun reading my kindle was incredibly relaxing. The bed and breakfast also has a refreshing pool for use at any time! We used it plenty and it was perfect in the warm Curacao weather. Our casa was also equipped with air conditioning, a fan, a large private bathroom with pleasant smelling shower products, a mini fridge, a coffee maker, a hot water boiler, information pamphlets, plenty of towels, beach chairs, WiFi- basically whatever you needed. There are also only three guest casas on the property and we met people from the Netherlands and Canada and everyone was nice and friendly (even if you aren’t the most social people like us) There is a grocery store and gas station within a ten minute drive so you can easily buy snacks and beers with which to fill your fridge. Room rates are also incredibly reasonable and you can add breakfast and airport pickup for extra cash if you’d like (Paul and Marion were waiting for us at the airport ready to pick us up and even bought us some gelato in the airport terminal) We added breakfast to our stay and every morning had a hot meal option and a whole lovely breakfast set up on the main patio - we had things like Dutch pancakes, sausage pastry rolls, eggs whoever we wanted and there was also plenty of fruit, juice, coffee, yogurt, breads, meat and cheeses available too. We were also able to take leftovers to our fridge and we had plenty of tasty little Dutch snacks and sandwiches to have when we wanted to save some cash for going out to nice restaurants at night. You will need to rent a car if you stay here, so make sure to budget that into your vacation plans (the car rental wasn’t all that expensive) There are some great beaches, restaurants, stores and such that about 10 minute drives and you’ll need a car to explore the other parts of the island and the main city of Willemstad (which has plenty of free parking and is a walkable city) Driving around Curacao wasn’t too bad and it’s much easier to drive since taxis are very expensive on the island and public transportation isn’t a thing (and honestly we barely saw any taxis when we were out and about). There just isn’t much that is in walking distance where Sombre Di Kabana is located, so I would take that into consideration when booking your stay. Marion and Paul can help arrange your rental car prior to your arrival. If you’re looking for a resort experience where you never leave or drive anywhere, you may want to book elsewhere. Exploring Curacao with a rental car is the way to go though. Marion and Paul had some great restaurant suggestions (we ate at two amazing places in the area that Marion suggested which had very reasonable prices, high end food, harbor views and great cocktails) and there are plenty of quick food options (like a BBQ food truck that opens only after 9 pm that is a poppin’ hotspot) that are very short drives away too. Mambo Beach is also a hot late night spot that is a ten minute drive from the bed and breakfast and Willemstad itself was only about a 15-20 minute drive. Paul and Marion were also both quite the characters and we had some very interesting conversations with them. They are both open-minded (and lgbt friendly, so you won’t have any issues here if you are are outwardly lgbt person or a gay couple) and open people, and it was fun getting to know them a bit over our six day stay. Curacao overall was a great vacation, didn’t rob our bank accounts, had some great food and beautiful beaches. We loved staying at Sombre di Kabana and Paul and Marion’s welcoming little home was an integral part of why we had such a great getaway in Curacao. We would easily recommend it to our friends and book here again whenever we return to Curacao.
