  • Myrna is een geweldige gastvrouw.
    Zij en haar dochter heette mij van harte welkom in het gastenverblijf.

    Het is een prima accommodatie voor een verblijf op het eiland.
    Het is niet erg groot en heeft geen airco, daarin tegen wel een goede ventilator en volledig eigen faciliteiten.
    Ik vond het leuk om bij locals te verblijven.

    Dank voor het verblijf en tot een volgende keer.

    Groet Yuri

    Na bo ordu! Yuri is een prettige en rustige gast. Heel makkelijk in alles en een genieter. Yuri fijn jouw te leren kennen. Tot ziens.

  • We stayed with Myrna for three weeks and had a quiet and nice time! We found it a bit tricky cooking ourself with the electric stow but other than that it was good.

    The room is perfect for two people, but for experience the whole island renting a car is necessary. Myrna helped us with that, and it worked out great!

    The neighborhood is quiet and very local, we enjoyed our stay allot!

  • Staying at Myrna's makes for a total experience of Curacao, because her local touch is really local. Not just the immediate fysical surroundings, but also the neighbours, all transmit a warm home feeling.This human touch was culture transcending for me: I had fallen ill one day and in the evening there was a knock on the door and when I opened up a bit a bowl of home-made soup and then a big piece of special bread were extended to me. That made all the difference and next day I could enjoy life again, which for me was like a taste of paradise.
    Myrna radiates high affinity and she really cares.

    Response from Myrna:

    Mario was a very special guest who enjoyed, as he mentioned, the social contacts even more than the nature of the island. All the fruits he could get where welcome. We are glad you experienced and appreciated the local and human touch of our neighbourhood.

  • Myrna is a great host! Quick and helpful communication from the start. Makes all the difference when you're going somewhere.

    Pros: Wonderful host, quiet area, clean, comfortable, fairly well equipped, and cheap. Close to a bus stop, $2/30min to get to down town
    Cons: no hot shower (not a big deal on a warm island), no AC (the fan was enough to keep me pretty comfortable). Bit far from down town ($2/30min by bus), but close to the bus stop. (you can also rent a car or bike if you need one). There are some mosquitoes, but the room comes with a wonderfully satisfying electric racket to zap them with. House is far enough from the airport that the taxi there can be pricey (especially late at night)

    Myrna is a wonderful host and provides a clean, comfortable, and well equipped space (fan, mini fridge, hot plate, cookware, plates, etc). She also has information at the ready about bus routes, schedules, car/bike rental, and other activities.

    She has a very nice family and is willing to be as social as you like (or let you hide away if you need to recuperate).

    This is a wonderful place to stay and also very cheap compared to other locations on the island.

    Response from Myrna:

    Josh is a great guest! Indeed he was hidden for a few days and after that we got time to know each other. A very pleasant person and of course an easy guest. Hope he will come back soon to explore the whole island.

  • We love the private room of Myrna. It is simple and clean. You have what should be in the room. The is only a fan in the room but during the night it is cold enough without the fan. The sorround really shows how the local people live. It is away from the mass tourism. We felt like at home.
    There were mosquitos in the room. But we are amazed about the electric tennis racket to kill the mosquitos. It worked perfect!
    Mryna helped us a lot during our stayed on Curacao. She gave us an information about the island. It was very helpful. Even she borrowed us money when we hadn't the local Guilder on that time.
    The connection to the city centre was worked perfectly because the house located only 4-5 minutes walk from the bus station. The buses run regulary.

    Response from Myrna:

    Klaus and Mia are guests who just enjoyed every detail of the island. Before arriving on the island they had looked for information and bought a book about Curacao. The simplest things like the behaviour of the bus driver got the attention. We enjoyed to host them but the best part was the conversations about a lot of topics. I really missed them when they left the island.

  • LE DOY 5 ESTRELLAS AL SITIO POR LA BUENA RELACIÓN VALOR PRECIO; ES LIMPIO, MUY ACOGEDOR, ESTA BIEN EQUIPADO,COMODO, LA ATENCION ES EXCELENTE LO RECOMIENDO PARA UNAS VACACIONES CON TIEMPO Y TRANQUILAS.

    ESTA APARTADO DE LA CIUDAD Y HAY QUE TOMAR BUS PARA IR A TODOS LADOS AUNQUE EL BUS PASA SEGUIDO, LOS LUGAREÑOS SON MUY AMABLES SIEMPRE ESTÁN DISPUESTO AYUDARLO SI LO NECESITA.

    LA ISLA ES MUY BONITA Y SEGURA PUEDES VER DE TODO: HISTORIA, COMPRAS, PLAYAS, SI HACES UN BUEN PROGRAMA PUEDES TENER MUCHAS ACTIVIDADES

  • Todo eccelente! Me sentí verdaderamente como en mi casa. Mucha tranquilidad. El cuarto muy aseado y todo el mobiliario nuevo. Pero lo que mas resalta es la hospitalidad de la Sra. Myrna.
