Who are we?

We are Rogier and Natasha, the lucky property managers of the vacation villa Carpe Diem in Curacao. In 2010 we did our best to furnish the villa comfortably and luxuriously for our guests.

Since we also regularly vacation at the villa on Curacao, we got to know the island really well. That is why we can as no other advise you about for example surroundings, the most beautiful beaches or the best restaurants.

Do you have questions about the availability, the villa itself or our terms and conditions? Please do not hesitate to contact us. We will answer all your questions promptly.

We will do everything to make sure your vacation and your stay go smoothly and pleasantly.

Villa Carpe Diem is close to the beach at Jan Thiel but it is in a quiet neighborhood. Staying there is more like actually living in Curacao than being in a resort. That's good and bad. It's quiet and has fantastic landscaping. The pool is excellent (really beyond excellent for young kids). We found that the outdoor spaces were great...

About the neighborhood
The villa itself and the neighborhoods Vista Royal and Jan Thiel are well watched over by a security agency Jan Thiel Security, which regularly patrols the area, so you can be assured of safe and pleasant vacation. In immediate surroundings of the villa you can find various restaurants (De Kleine Wereld, Zanzibar, Jan Thiel beach, etc.) where you can enjoy a tasty lunch or dinner. Luckily the Villa Carpe Diem is located in the area away from the party noise. There is a yacht harbor within a walking distance, and in direct vicinity there are different water sport equipment rentals. Among others there are water jet ski, surfing boards and small boats for rent. Here you can also book your day trip to a tiny and picturesque island Klein Curacao.
Getting around
Car Rental

Since having a car on Curacao is quite necessary, we have selected a local car renting company that always provides us with excellent service. Our partner offers a wide range of insurances, clear rental terms and great service.

The rental company offers compact city cars, cool pickups and luxury terrain vehicles.

Our property manager can make sure your car is waiting for you at the villa, which could be very comfortable after a long flight.

The offered cars are complete. The prices include liability insurance, low deductibles, 24/7 roadside assistance and unlimited mileage. Extra items such as baby/ toddler car seat can be added when asked for.

When booking your stay at our villa simply let us know you are interested in this
