Never having been to Curacao before, we were able to email Berge with many questions which he was able to answer fully and quickly. The property management rep, was at the villa...

The apartment and garden are exactly like the pictures; beautiful. It was well stocked. It is a short walk to the beach and the store. The property manager was a great help at both check-in and check-out. I would highly recommend this property.

Management response:

Thanks so much for your kind comments. We're very glad that you had a nice stay at our house on the beautiful island of Curaçao! Hope to see you again.

It had a beautiful view of the water and we enjoyed lounging outside on the terrace and hammock. We could cook breakfast in the morning overlooking the...
