It all begins and ends right here, at Surrender Villa. If you're seeking complete privacy and tranquility in an extraordinarily beautiful setting with wonderful accommodations in an off the beaten path location, look no further. Our family's mediterranean-style, one-story privately owned villa was completed in 2011 and rests upon the seaside cliffs in Westpunt, a small village in the north of Curacao. Surrender is at the western most point of the island making it the perfect place to take in the magnificent Caribbean sunsets. The villa is situated in a gated community on a spacious, private 1.5 acres and was built for entertaining.

If you're seeking complete privacy and tranquility in an extraordinarily beautiful setting with wonderful accommodations in an off the beaten path location, look no further. Our family's mediterranean-style, one-story privately owned villa was completed in 2011 and rests upon the seaside cliffs in Westpunt, a small village in the north of Curacao. Surrender is at the western most point of the island making it the perfect place to take in the magnificent Caribbean sunsets. The villa is situated in a gated community on a spacious, private 1.5 acres and was built for entertaining. It is the perfect place to come with family and friends. “Surrender” to the blue sea, the warm sunny days and the starry nights. Once you arrive at the end of our courtyard, you'll travel down the long private driveway where you'll glimpse beautiful flowering plants native to the island. The private, spacious, architecturally landscaped grounds feature a small grove of shade trees with sitting area, a beautiful stairway carved into the cliffs leading down to the ocean, a cliff diving platform, and rock walls along the property lines. There's even a heavy duty, aluminum flagpole to fly your favorite flag!! The villa's interior might best be described as 5,000 square feet of casual elegance in a spectacular setting that takes full advantage of the tropical beauty that is the island of Curacao. A very large open living area encompasses the kitchen, dining room and living room. Thirty-foot, fully retractable doors open to the cliff side terrace and state-of-the-art infinity pool with nothing standing between you and the Caribbean. Sleeping accommodations include an enormous master bedroom suite with a separate sitting room, a large private bathroom, a walk in closet, and private doors to the terrace. There are three other generously-sized bedrooms and a fourth smaller room that may be used for a nanny, cook, or extra guest. All bedrooms have ocean views. There are three additional full bathrooms. The family room also features two queen-size pullout sofa beds. The kitchen was designed with the chef in mind and boasts a Miele Oven, Gagganau Cooktop and Exhaust Fan, Microwave, Dishwasher, Nespresso Coffee Maker, and all small counter top appliances. Some of the additional complementary features you'll find include: --Samsung HDTV's With International Programming, Access To Movies And Sporting Events --DVD Player --Bose Sound Dock --Speed Queen Washer And Dryer --Air Conditioning Units In Each Room --48″ DCS Outdoor Grill --Advance Technology Alarm System, --24-Hour Gated Security --Wireless Internet Access Many optional concierge services are available by special arrangement. We can offer interim housekeeping, meal preparation/delivery, grocery shopping, and in home spa services (manicure, pedicure, facial, massage, etc.) . We can also arrange special excursions like diving, fishing, etc. Just ask! * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * ****PLEASE READ RATE INFORMATION SECTION CAREFULLY BEFORE INQUIRING**** ****SORRY, WE DO NOT OFFER DISCOUNTED RATES. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Our Favorite Nearby Beaches 1. Grote Knip - located at the western side of the island, between the villages of Westpunt and Lagun. An easy ten minute walk from Surrender Villa. The beach gives way to a small lagoon and is surrounded by high rock cliffs. With a coral reef nearby, Grote Nip has wonderful snorkeling. 2. Playa Porto Mari is located on the private estate of Plantages on the west coast of Curacao. Its white coral sand beach, with clear and calm water is a true paradise for water lovers and the unique “double” reef is easily accessible from the shore providing a fascinating snorkel and dive site 3. Playa Cas Abou (aka Bon Bini Beach) was recently listed as one of the “10 Best Beach Destinations' in a Yahoo! travel article. Popular with both locals and tourists, on the weekends Cas Abou is one of the most crowded beaches. But the reason is simple: it's a beautiful! More

We had a wonderful family vacation at Villa Surrender! Janet and Hynrich were great to work with. The view is spectacular, the pool great for young children and the snorkeling and cliff jumping right at the property was fantastic! I highly recommend Villa Surrender.

About the neighborhood
Surrender is located on the cliffs overlooking the Caribbean at the western most point of the island. The setting is secluded and private. The turquoise waters can be accessed from either a diving platform built into the cliff (for the adventurous) or via a stone staircase carved into the cliff that leads right down to the sea. White sandy swimming beaches and access to world class scuba diving and snorkeling are mere minutes away near the small village of Westpunt. Our family home is situated on more than an acre and a half on the quiet end of Curacao. Surrender stands out for the sheer beauty of its oceanfront, location , the quiet and privacy of the setting, and the ease with which the villa can accommodate guests. A rental car with GPS is recommended to make the most of your visit...
Getting around
We heartily recommend a rental car to all of our guests. We prize the seclusion of our location and prefer to spend a little while driving to be in the thick of things than to actually spend all of our precious vacation time tangled up in the midst of it. Rental cars are available at the airport and we suggest you make a reservation well in advance of your arrival date. There is only one main road that runs from our property into the heart of Willemstad. After one tript, you'll be a pro. An added bonus: with no ambient light anywhere near the villa, the star gazing is nothing short of phenomenal!
