“One of the best places we've ever stayed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We just got back from a week in Curacao, where we stayed at PM78 for 7 nights in the big downstairs apartment with the pool. The place is amazing...like "I'd like to live here" amazing. The pool is perfect, the kitchen is great and the neighborhood is fast becoming like a little Amsterdam with great bars and restaurants within a 2 block radius. Cindy was great.

As a family of three generations we had the pleasure of renting all three apartments at PM78 in the spring of 2013.
We had very high expectations before we arrived and the stay at PM78 exceeded every one of them.
The apartment lays in the most charming part of Willemstad, just 10 min. walk to the center, and in the other direction you will find some of the best and highest rated restaurants on the island. A lot of the old buildings in the area have been beautifully restored and some still appears original beaten by time. And this only emphasizes the fantastic colonial Caribbean atmosphere.
We can only give our best recommendations to Curacao, PM78 and the hospitality of Cindy and David.

Room Tip: Be aware that you only have access to the swimming pool and sea view if you rent the two bedroom apa...

The PM78 is like a home away from home. Both David and Cindy are excellent hosts and they run a professional establishment. The location is great and is merely a 10 minute walk to the center of town. The price is more than reasonable. Next door is Pappas which is a great spot to to lunch and dine.

We stayed in the City Apartment for seven nights and were very impressed with the quality of both the apartment and the service we received from owners David and Cindy. The apartment had all the amenities we needed for a partly self-catered vacation. The kitchen has everything from dishes and cutlery to tupperware and even a cooler box to take to the beach. There were some basic such as salt, pepper, and oil and enough utensils to cook a full meal without any hassle. The bathroom was clean and stocked with plenty of bath towels, as well as beach towels, and a beach bag. Half way through our trip the apartment was cleaned and we were given fresh sheets and towels. The neighborhood had an authentic island feel, and we felt safe going out at night. Located about 15minute walk from the main downtown district, we found several good restaurants in the area. There is also a pleasant wine boutique only a block away, as well as a beautiful beach located at the Avila resort, only 10 minutes from the apartment. Cindy has put together a very handy manual about all the appliances (tv, air con, etc) as well as listings of some restaurants and shops in the neighborhood. Groceries are hard to come by downtown, but if you are looking to rent a car, make sure to drop in at Albert Hein's for a truly Dutch grocery experience. Cindy and David are always on hand to help with any questions you might have. They are friendly and approachable, and make a great effort to accommodate their guests before and after arrival. If you send Cindy or David an email before you arrive, she will put you in contact with a lovely taxi driver who will pick you up at the airport and bring you to the hotel. Taxis charge a standard rate of $30 from the airport to Punda.

We stayed at the 5 star apartment with 2 bedrooms and private pool. What an amazing place and still can't believe we had this luxury apartment all to ourselves for a week. The view of the ocean steals your heart everyday. With 4 adults the price per person was very reasonable. The location is fantastic and an easy walk to a lot of great restaurants and harbour area. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and we used it to make breakfasts in the morning, picking up several items at a local grocery store. David and Cindy were excellent hosts and were quick to help us out with any questions or concerns we had (they live upstairs). The island of Curacao is the nicest Caribbean island I've been to yet and really enjoyed the visit. Other highlights of the week included visiting some of the white sandy beaches (Cas Abou was beautiful) and the climb up Mount Christophe. We rented a car for two days but would recommend reservations are made in advance.

Overall a fantastic week and I highly recommend staying in the 5 star apartment if you get the chance. You won't regret it!!

I we havent had our honeymoon yet, this would have been the perfect surrounding!
We stayed 2 weeks at the 5* apartement and it absolutely lives up to its promise!
When you wake up and walk to the terrace, the view is breathteaking.

The area is safe and just around the corner you´ll find nice bars and restaurants. PM78 is also just 10 minutes walk from the city center of Willemstad and the perfect spot to start your journeys around the island.

Cindy and David (the owners live upstairs) are remarkable hosts! We got such a nice and warm welcome and they helped us to find the best beaches and snorkeling spots.

We could go on and on how great it was! But you need to be there to see how well designed and absolutely world class the arartement is!!!
This was our first time on Curacao and we definitely will come back and stay nowhere else than PM78.
